Why don't you go to Gibraltar or to the Channel Islands ?
It should also be fun.

(did the Channel Islands vote for Brexit ?)


CI didn't have a vote


I am not sure that Channel Islands are part of Great Britain. They are
possessions of the English crown. Sometimes with their own parliaments.
Like Clipperton island, Mayotte or Azores, they have a special status in
the EU.

You have to be careful with the French overseas territories, most of them
are "part" of French, vote in French elections, use the Euro and ARE part of
the EU.

They are a mile away from the status of the CI/IOM.


I don't know abut the Azores

Hmmm. That's what Rome2Rio said, but when I clicked the link, it took
me to the EuroLines site, which in several tries seemed to indicate
there is no such route. Tried first and third of the month also.

But ALSA's site first showed €123 (IVA included), but then dropped it to
€113 with the "senior discount."


When the bus pulled in, fifteen minutes after it was scheduled to pull
OUT, it was a Eurolines bus, but a small sign said to buy tickets at Alsa.es
