We could be arriving in Zeebrugge to a 14 day quarantine in June. More likely it'll get cancelled. We were planning to head off down to Italy as usual, fat chance of that now.

Got a later one to the Picos, that might be ok, hopefully.

Our current plan is for the first half of Sept, about 16-17 days

Ferry to Santander
Across the Pyrenees to the Med
Through Southern France into Italy/Austria for a bit of time in the Dolomites/Alps
Find an interesting route back to Zeebrugge for the ferry home

This could be extended throughout the summer or fizzle out in a few weeks, who knows.

From HullLive:
P&O Ferries has explained why it is "vital" its ferries are still sailing from Hull during the coronavirus pandemic.
The firm has said its ships are needed to carry fresh water, fruit and vegetables, medicines and other vital supplies to and from Europe, however, all mini cruises to and from Hull have been suspended.
It's Hull to Zeebrugge and Hull to Rotterdam route is temporarily suspended for holiday passengers until April 6.
Customers booked up to and including this date will be issued a credit towards a future journey and will be contacted by email.
Janette Bell, Chief Executive of P&O Ferries, said people will still see ships leaving and arriving at the port - but they are being used for freight only.

Are you going up to St. Petersburg? Otherwise you've missed one ferry booking.

Im heading up the west coast of Norway, then back down to Malmo and across the bridges back into Denmark. At least thats the basic plan - flexibility is the key to the whole trip.   :152:
