    we set off on our hols friday, motorhome's packed just food to go in and im all excited 1st stop dover marine parade then from calais we will stop just north of stuttgart, after there we head for italy balzano (spelling) we meet up with lisas mum there and stay for a few days before we head to garda, after the stop at garda we head to venice for a few days then on to croatia where we will have a beach type holiday for a week or so.
    we then head back up to austria to leogang where i meet up with some of the guys from cyclejunkies and ride at the kona bike park, we then head to munich for a few days, after munich we go to disneyland then back to calais and home, we are away for a month so have a lot to squeeze in, i will try and post some updates of our trip with some pics.

    thanks for all the info i got off you all for our trip:thumb:

    we went last year brian and it was so beautiful we decided to go back this year but via italy because we have never been,

    where else can you have this type of holiday, city,lake and beach holiday all in 1 and you get to see all the real parts of the places you visit.
    i do love having a motorhome::bigsmile:

    You can't say more than that about a place.

    Two best trips on Garda, IMHO, walk around Sirmione and go to Malchesini and take the cable car.

    If you have balls of steel, take your bike up the cable car and come down the hard way.

    When were at the top of Mt Baldo we saw a car arrive with 10/15 bikes, filled the car. Now I don't know if this was club organised or maybe one car a day. But you can walk or cycle down. There is a road too, we saw delivery vans.

    No FBP probs in Bath Brian... you can buy them at any respectable grocery outlet... France, Germany and Italy more tricky...

    Hope you have good time, we did almost same trip in 2002.
    Landed in Ostend, through Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, then back through Germany and France.

    Nice place in Austria was Faaker see, beautiful lake, we went to Mosenicka Draga in Croatia, lovely beach, back into italy to Trieste were I have relatives for a few days, then Lake Garda (Malcesne) lovely little town with cobbled streets, and you must go upto Monte Baldo in the cable car, then onto Venice, used plenty of aires along the way.

    have a safe trip

    Hi Tommy

    Bring the sun cream as its roasting in Garda just now. If you are going via Innsbruck id recommend natter see camp site and also you can go up to 3000m with cable car from city centre and cycle down if your daft enough you can cycle up:ROFLMAO:

    Have a great time might pass you we leave here on monday going back germany way.

    Gerry
