Pretty sure, as Dave said, you can pay with cards for the internal ferries.

Really looking forward to this tour.

Not long now...

Basically we are each allowed to bring in 19 x 0.33l bottles of beer OR 6 bottles wine + 6 x 0.33l bottles of beer. These limits all reduced if bringing in spirits or tobacco as well.

Not long to go now......

Me too, I'm reluctant to get a load of cash too as generally don't spend much.

How warm is it likely to be?
Is it shorts and T shirt or will I need jumpers and coats? That snow looks a bit cold!!

As long as its dry then shorts and t shirts have been fine when I've been before - from memory temperatures between 18 and 25C.

Best to take some longs and jumpers etc as well though.

As Uncle Paul says, generally you'll be fine with shorts & t-shirt, but chuck in a couple of warm things. Always worth having a coat too.

The views from the internal ferries can be spectacular, and you'll want to be outside to take some pictures...
