Our annual and always much anticipated visit to Brittany is underway, with an overnight crossing to St Malo, to be followed by the familiar drive down to Morbihan. I don’t know how they’ve managed to remain so consistent over years and years, but Brittany Ferries continue to excel. Of course I love boats generally as I’ve mentioned here before (probably more than once or twice!) but unfailingly welcoming and attentive crew, first rate steak frites, a tour of the ship, and a great night’s comfortable sleep really are part of the holiday for us. Sailing into early morning St Malo on a misty sunlit morning is undoubtedly one of my favourite things. Hat tip today to MV Bretagne and the Brittany Ferries fleet.
