My very basic loose plan atm is:
out - Dunkirk - Germany - Austria - slovenia - Croatia - Bosnia - Montenegro - Albania - Greece
back - Bulgaria - Romania - Hungary - Slovakia - Poland - Germany - France - Home
as i said looking at 6 month and i know about the insurance, anything else you can give tips/advice on?
It's a few years since we were there but I think it is still the case that you have to stay on campsites (or at least somewhere that can give you a receipt) in Croatia. Some enterprising people put up signs offering an overnight pitch on their driveway or field but much of the rocky coastline has commercial campsites where it is viable. It is said that the police can stop you and ask to see receipts. I don't have first hand knowledge of that, though. You will see iron boxes with smoke coming out outside some restaurants, they are roasting whole pigs! We met people who stayed overnight in the carpark of places like this, with their agreement, had a meal and got the necessary receipt. My only other advice would be to take your time. On reflection, I think we rather rushed it. Which is why we are going back. Have a great trip.
PS I think you'll find lots more info in forums on here and on Fun.
