Due to strong winds and high 3-metre waves, a ferry carrying 472 passengers from Langkawi to Kuala Kedah turned back at 4pm on 25 Sept.

The 4pm and 7pm Langkawi—Kuala Kedah—Langkawi trips were cancelled.

An additional trip was provided for those who want to take the Langkawi—Kuala Perlis route at 7:30pm as they can't get to Kuala Kedah.

The trip from Kuala Kedah scheduled for 7am on 26 Sept is also cancelled.

I tend to forget this, but for the price of about four bucks and twenty minutes you can be on the other side of all that water and poke around a totally different bunch of interesting things, none of which involve trying to ride a bike through the southern edges of Oakland.

I really hope that this service gets up and running again. I used the previous service from Rosyth back in 2002 - 2006 and it was such a pleasure not to have to drive through Englandshire to get to mainland Europe. All the infrastructure is still there in Fife.

Inevitably our UK masters, under the guise of UK Border Patrol, are at the ready to place obstacles in our path and pour cold water over it.

Oh how they hate to see us doing anything that might improve the lives of us living in #Scotland

Hullo said bringing bikes will be possible in the future, but at this point it's not.
They mentioned that bike racks will be on an outer deck; the front one has a few steps and is not ideal, the rear has some space and doesn't have this problem, so they're probably going to be there.
You'd need to walk your bike through the passenger section.

#Hullo #ferry

Can I bring my bike?

We understand how passionate British Columbians are about biking and we are rapidly working on a system of allowing those who need a bike to be able to book limited spots. Right now this service is unavailable but stay tuned!

front deck access; high doorstep and a small ladder to accesd the deck, about half a meter tall

Almost 70 km/h with the slight head wind! Comapre this to #BCFerries that go 30 on average.

Lkading time was much shorter too, mostly because you don't need to wait for all the cars to roll in.

The sailing took 1:18 in total.

L'ancien ministre Luc Ferry a fait un esclandre devant l'Elysée le 14 septembre. Invité au château, le désormais chroniqueur s'est emporté contre un policier qui lui demandait de justifier son identité: "'J'en ai rien à foutre, je suis ministre de l'Education nationale'", avant de forcer le passage en traitant le policier de "petit con", relate Le Canard Enchaîné.

I wrote about our plans for a #summer #vacation to #Greece without airtravel a while ago. I'd said I wanted to put my money and effort where my mouth is.

Now I wanted to add a follow-up, but the original post is already gone. My fault for setting auto-deletion to 3 months.

Two adults and two children travelled from #Vienna 🇦🇹 to #Corfu 🇬🇷 and back via #Italy 🇮🇹 , with some sightseeing in #Ancona, Corfu Town, #Brindisi, and #Rome without using any cars or airplanes. I had bought additional travel insurance for missed connections, but we didn't need that.

Itinerary: Tram, #Nightjet sleeper, bus, #ferry, bus, bus, (hotel stay with occasional outings by bus), bus, bus, ferry, shuttle bus, bus, (hotel), #Frecciargento train, (hotel, metro and bus for #sightseeing), #Frecciarossa train, Nightjet sleeper, metro. (Busses means regular public transit busses on numbered lines that the locals also take.)

Every single vehicle everywhere had working air condition. They were clean and on time, and all the longer trips had tasty food. There's power outlets everywhere. The Frecciarossa (red arrow) between Rome and #Bologna only got to 250 km/h, not the 300 we were hoping to see, but that was the only slightest disappointment.

The ferries are not at all climate-friendly. I have not found a number for how much #CO² for a crossing, but they are similar to cruise ships. The trips are far shorter than cruises of course, but we see and smell the black smoke from the stacks. It's wrong to feel smug about taking a ferry instead of an airplane. All the busses had #combustion engines. All the trains/metros/trams were #electric, so that depends on the grid. The Austrian ÖBB prides itself on using only "green" #electricity.

We enjoyed the trip very much. I am unsure about any future travel. I would totally do this again in terms of comfort and experiences. But my goals for how much I hope to not pollute and damage the world for my pleasure have changed. I have no answers right now.

A 12 mile ride on a #bicycle is about an hour, even with a backpack. I gave myself 4 hours. Which is good, it leaves time for coffee and breakfast as well as a little shopping. If I had a flat I would have been able to fix it.

Took the RiverLink #Ferry from Camden for the first time.

We were able to get our bikes down the stairs on the north side of the Ben Franklin Bridge on the way to NJ, but we weren't relishing the idea of pushing them back up. Good news, taking our bikes on the ferry was painless.

I just wish the ferry ran more often, at more times of day, and year round (instead of May - September). Typical issues with public transit in the US.

In #Dublin we quickly cooked some vegan burger, made our way through the busy city and rolled on board of the #ferry. The weather was quite bad, we had strong wind and rain. Therefore the #ocean crossing was a shaky affair what we felt in our stomach area 🥴. But everything went well.

To put my money (and time and effort) where my mouth is, I have now booked our family summer vacation 🏝️ without car or air travel. We're going from Vienna 🇦🇹 to Greece 🇬🇷 by train and ferry, with transfers on public transit busses! It's 1.5 days one way instead of a few hours by air.

Last year we went to Italy, which is much closer. Greece is the next level challenge from here.

What I noticed so far:

There are way too few connections. I should really have booked earlier, but overall there just are magnitudes more seats on airplanes to/from Greece than cabins on the ferries and sleeper compartments on trains. Many ferries and trains do not run daily even in the top summer season.

There are very few travel agencies for this kind of trip. I found none for Austria, and one specialized for Switzerland. When I book everything separately, I carry the full risk in case of a missed connection.

Many ferries are car/camper ferries. There is an impressive multitude of services and a whole culture around travelling with your own (rented) vehicle that has grown and matured over decades. I wonder how that will change?

BTW, I really loved air travel. But I understand we have to do everything we can.

In winter, we have 4 ferries a week to/from the mainland port of Mallaig. Our last ferry was on Wednesday. Today's has been cancelled due to wind and sea swell. Will it go tomorrow? The forecast suggests possibly not. The next ferry is on Monday.
Result = lots of people stuck in Mallaig who were trying to get here. People stuck here who were due to go off for appointments, holidays, work, or go home after their holiday on Eigg. It's frustrating, but it's island life. #patience
