WHEN TO GO

We chose to travel in the last two weeks of June, avoid­ing the Euro­pean school hol­i­days, while en­joy­ing some hot sun­shine (along with the oc­ca­sional thun­der­storm!).

WAY TO GO

We trav­elled Dover to Calais on

P&O Fer­ries (www.po­fer­ries.com), booked through the Car­a­van and Mo­torhome Club (www.car­a­van­club. co.uk), at a re­turn cost of £200, and had planned for two stopovers on our re­turn jour­ney.

We vis­ited Italy on our way back from the is­land of Cres, in Croa­tia – a jour­ney of 300 miles to Camp­ing For­nella on Lake Garda.

We used ma­jor routes through­out Italy, Aus­tria, Ger­many, Lux­em­bourg, Bel­gium and France.

We found even the mi­nor roads in Lux­em­bourg per­fectly ac­cept­able for tow­ing, and this made a nice change from the mo­tor­ways, with some re­ally beau­ti­ful scenery.
