Thankfully P&O have given me a credit voucher and all the booking.com accommodation was cancellation penalty free.
We've had to do something similar :( . Our June trip to BMW Motorrad Days in Garmisch was cancelled and yesterday I cancelled the ferry and the hotels for a September trip through the Netherlands and down to Bavaria. It's the first time for about 20 years that we haven't been abroad on the bike :( .
Still, at least with the travel credits offered by DFDS, it means that next years ferries are already paid for ;)

In Liverpool for a couple of days, staying at the Royal Albert Dock Premier Inn. Brilliant value at 40 quid a night, and probably one of best I've stayed in.[attachimg=1]

Checked in to the Hotel Infantado in Potes, Spain. Everything seems open and reasonably busy so far? I didn't check in till 11-20pm due to the ferry getting to port late because of the storm, but everything seemed open for business on the way. Plenty wearing masks and plenty of hand sanitizer available, and I've not seen any dead in the street as yet?! Let's see what daylight brings lol..

It wouldn't be a proper ride out if I didn't go through a farmer's yard.

When you get to Ainsa don't bother with the grilled rabbit. Its a bit on the chewy side.[attachimg=1]

Just a couple of hours ride over from Ainsa to Sort in the Pyrenees where I'm staying for a couple of nights. Then I went out for a bimble over the N-260 towards Andorra. What a road! 😊

Excellent gloves, cured my numb fingers. It must be the way they are stitched.
