Thinking of taking the ferry to Spain next June exploring a bit of northern Spain, about a week and then working our way up the west coast of France to Cherbourg. Not sure whether to go to to Bilbao or Santander, any thoughts?

PJay - 2017-08-29 11:08 PMCurrently Bilbao is having problems with immigrants trying to get to Uk from SpainPJay


Reports in Express and Sun say that mainly Albanian migrants are camping near the port in Bilbao and a number have boarded the ferries to UK, of whom most were discovere and returned to Spain.


It doesn't sound like it will affect outbound arrivals in Bilbao much but there are extra searches of vehicles (and shipping containers) before boarding for a journey to UK.


No reports of the extra EU Schengen Area checks delaying things so far.
