After umming and ahhing for a week as to whether to go North and tour Scotland and Northern Ireland again, or head south to Dover once more a decision has been made.(y)

It's south to Dover, nothing booked but the ferry, for our 4 week trip. Our very loose itinerary is Calais to Chamonix (maybe via Belgium & Luxembourg).
We may divert before Chamonix to visit friends who have just moved into a new house at Eymoutiers, which is not far from Oradour sur Glane which we would also like to visit.

After Chamonix, then possibly using the Mont Blanc Tunnel, it will be Northern Italy then east to the south of Lake Garda to Venice, then maybe popping into Slovenia and Rijeka in Croatia then back North through Austria and Germany.

Any good Aires, campsites or must see's along that route would be appreciated.
Thanks.::bigsmile:

I can safely say that Oradour Sur Glane will move you, it did me! You would need a heart of steel not to find the place deeply moving and very sad. It is also a very erie place, I can't recall hearing any bird song while there.
