Should I go?
I'm currently in Ireland (from NI) at my daughter's and had intended going on for a few days' travel round Ireland. However, there was talk last night about would I be any safer in Ireland than in France? (I think the family wants rid of me!) and I think the answer is probably no.
So now I'm looking at crossing Dublin-Cherbourg mid September then Bilbao-Rosslare c.5th November. Only problem was, when I booked that return last time it was cancelled (due to the weather map being purple, yeuch!) and I then had to travel via England and Wales as Brittany Ferries have no reciprocal arrangements with Irish Ferries who run the Cherbourg-Dublin. So I'm wondering do I stick to that or instead, go for a loop in France only (which would be cooler).
I'm really only thinking aloud. And looking for input from like-minded motorhomers.
I think I'm just slightly more nervous in the present covid climate as I'm solo. My son says, as he always does, that if anything goes wrong he can fly out to me and drive home, so that's not really a concern I think, if I stay away from big cities.
