on next years trip:BigGrin:. I like a bit of planning, gives us something to do on those cold winter nights. We will be going across europe to Italy, at a lesiurly pace. We'll head down to Bari,after plenty of sightseeing, and get the ferry across to Dubrovnik. We will then head up toward the istrian penninsular, taking in the sights and revisting places we have been to before, then head for Germany and France prior to home.
