A Story of two Ferry Virgins It all started in December 2011 when my son Luke said, “Dad do you fancy going to the Isle of Man?” “Yes” I said “But not when they are racing as it is too restricted and expensive” “Ok no problem” was the reply, the week before Easter was the chosen time agreed. After a bit of research the return ferry was booked, Leaving from Heysham and returning to Liverpool, Bed and Breakfast was booked although it’s called homestay on the island. Time past and the leaving date arrived, Bikes loaded and all packed up for our adventure. We left on 1st April, Yes April fool’s day, and headed for Travelodge on the M6 at Lancaster, going via A17, A1(M) A59 and M6. A good night’s sleep at Travelodge and a hearty breakfast set us up for the Ferry. We had no idea what to expect as neither of us had done this before. Arrived at the Heysham ferry and sought advice for catching ferry, all staff at the port
