European Road Trip

Jump to last reply

Hi all.

We have had some excellent advice in the past...and in need of some help with planning our next trip.

My girlfiend and I have just purchased a Volkswagen Van, kitted out with a bed, ready to travel around Europe for 3 weeks this Summer. We will be attending a wedding in Orleans at the end of August before heading home - the rest is a blank canvas.

We want an itinerary that involves a bit of city sightseeing, mountain biking (we'll be taking our own) and the outdoors. We would also like some chill out time at the beach/lakes.

We have a rough plan but we need help piecing together the route - to ensure we make the most of the trip.

We are in our late 20's and have a budget of around £2,000. My girlfiend is also fluent in French!

We haven't booked the ferry, campsites or anything for that matter yet - so we need your help.

Here's the route we're thinking:

Cardiff - Dover (Ferry or Tunnel) - travel onto
Belgium - Brussels, then onto
Germany - Black Forest (biking), then onto
Switzerland (maybe Berne) - onto
Italy - Como and Garda - Verona - Pisa - onto
France - Cote d'Azur (Nice & Monaco) before going on to see family in Toulouse and then the wedding in Orleans before returning home.

We appreciate that this is a huge undertaking - 3,000 miles in 3 weeks, but am open to advice and suggestions.

Any help with planning our trip or with any suggested destinations to visit on-route would be invaluable to us!!!

Many thanks
