    WOW - we've got another one with a brain.

    How are you going to get lost without a sat nav ???

    I once shuddered when we worked out that one day on French toll roads cost us the same in tolls as fuel. Now that is plain greedy. Not only that you should have seen the price of fuel, even we weren't stupid enough to buy on the MW.

    Coming from Cornwall you could go Newhaven Dieppe for a change, it may be quite a bit less mileage this side and is 50 miles nearer Paris on the other. :Cool:

    I'm a bit prejudiced as this is our local ferry (though it is a 4 hour crossing) and its not on a motorway as East Sussex does not have even a single mile of motorway.

    I find www.mappy.co.uk pretty good for pre-planning routes through France.

    Always do it as a backup to print in case anything goes wrong with the sat nav.
