    If I was going to Croatia I would not leave from Calais. No really how long do you want to take and do you want to use toll roads?

    I can't imagine Croatia in relation to any of the "main" European countries ... (I know I could google to find it, but where's the fun in that?:Rofl1:) any pointers?

    OK, so I resorted to boring old Google!!:RollEyes:

    You could go down through France, cross northern Italy, then drop down through Slovenia and then into Croatia.

    Or do Germany, Austria, Slovenia and into Croatia.

    Hi,

    I have tried to find a thread where i am sure i read that at one entry point into Croatia you may have to cross a non-EEC member country and that insurance for that crossing can be a problem ??

    perhaps i dreamt it ?? is Don Madge about as i think he was one of the contributors to the thread

    hope that makes sense ??

    Croatia Trip

    Use Norfolk Lines, (usually cheap) then go through Valkenberg Rudesheim, Nuremburg, (Nice campsites at all these places) Pass Munich And another campsite at Traunstein and then to Lake Bled.
    We have gone this way, more or less, twice as there is free motorway most of the way if your time is limited. Beware of the motorway tolls in Austria if you are driving a big motor home. Small ones are not expensive. Bit slow getting through the Slovenian border but no problems. If you go down to Dubrovnik you have to travel through about 10 miles of Bosnia. They try to sell you insurance but it is a good straight road and nobody bothers!
    Hope this helps! Enjoy:BigGrin:

    Think it was Don posting about this & I think it was on the other side or possibly on the Yahoo Mlist. I will see if I can find it I think he may have done a Travelogue.
