Vacation planning -- London transportation questions
I'm planning our summer vacation and I have some questions for someone familiar with London. Your help is very much appreciated!
1. Megabus - online it says I can get from London to Portsmouth for 1 pound. Is that true? Am I getting what I pay for? I'm a thrifty traveller but if this bus would look more appropriate in the third world I'll pick a different route.
2. P&O ferry from Portsmouth to Bilbao, Spain -- $99 / per person 2 day "cruise" that's for the modest cabin without a window -- a bed, a closet, and a toilet. That's all I need. Your thoughts?
3. I'm planning on renting a car in Bilbao and seeing the rest of Europe by car. Trains are cool, but I'm content to wander around and stop when and where I want.
4. Can I rent a LHD car on the outskirts of London? It would free up my travel plans if I didn't have to return the rental in Bilboa, but my flights in and out are both in London. I don't want to have a RHD car in mainland Europe.
And of course my trip is going to include a stop at the MB museum in Stuttgart!
Thanks again for your help. Any suggestions are appreciated. I'm a car guy and my wife is an artist. Anything we should see?
