Dipping toe into deeper water!
Well we have had Buffy for 3 months now and have, with her and a previous loan MH, had a few weeks on and off touring the UK (West Coast Scotland, Northumberland, Yorkshire Coast, Cornwall and Devon). We are now planning our first tour on mainland Europe.
We are looking to jump on the Chunnel in mid-April. Initially we are looking to tour the Burgundy/Alsace Regions of France. Then dependant upon the a number of things we are contemplating driving to Crete via ferry from Piraeus.
Which brings me to our dilemma! How to get to Athens?
I'm sure there are many amongst you who will have an opinion as to the best route to be taken.
So do we travel through Italy and jump on a ferry to Patras or Ignoumenitsa? Or take a more land based route via Slovenia, Croatia and down the East coast of the Adriatic.
Time is not really an issue as we will be away for nearly three months, during a window between birthdays of Grandchildren (11-Apr to 18-Jul).
Any opinions, ideas, insights or experiences would be gratefully appreciated.
