This is bit long winded but please bear with me. We are planning a trip to Llfranc which is in the Costa Brava. We have two weeks holiday and are finding it difficult to plan our journey so that we have a reasonable amount of time at our destinition. It all seems to be just driving which isn't what we want. We live in Birkenhead on the Wirrral, google tells me that it will take 5-1/2 hours to Dover, this means 8 hours driving at 55MPH. If we leave Thursday morning 8am we will be in Dover for 4pm, room for error 5pm. Take a 6pm crossing and arrive at Calais 7pm approx. By this time we will need sleep but will have to find somewhere to sleep and not having been to Calais before we dont know where to go. We will likley get lost. Get a nights sleep around Calais on Thursday night and on the road Friday morning bright and early. Drive for 6 hours and book in to a site on Friday night for more sleep. Possibley stay over on Saturday to rest up. On the road Sunday and drive to the Costa Brava. Arrive Sunday night and go to bed. Monday we are at our destination and starting our holiday which really should have started when we left our house in the m/h but because we have just been driving to a destination and have been tired it hasn't been possible. We have the same thing to do on return, 4 days of travel to get home, 8 days of just travel within our 14 day holiday period. Is this all a bridge to far. Whats the poit of a m/h holiday if we are forever driving and tired. Would it be better to limit ourselves to somwhere in France that we can reach by Friday/Saturday. I know most of you guys have been about in France and Spain so Please Help.
