Ferry Ibn Batouta of 1966




FERRY IBN BATOUTA

I recently found this little leaflet amongst some papers about a holiday spent touring the Atlantic coast of Spain and Portugal in 1970. I didn't travel on the ferry but I know now that it was built in 1966 in France and lasted until 2001. I thought it was a very neat design, and of course it is always fascinating to see the cars going on board any ferry and the costs involved in travelling.
