You've not said when you are thinking of going? I off in the spring to this place for a month.

Dubrovnik, Croatia - Google Maps


So would be looking at the back end of summer. I'm OK about the road's. The toll road's can eat in to the money. What I do is make the crossing at Dover early morning. Staying at a camp site in dover. £10 a night. It's has room's you can use for that price. So one good night with a roof over your head. Let's you get a good start. The next thing is an eye ball, so we can talk about it a bit better. Usually pick a main tesco half way between you and me. Can get a bit to eat at the same time. Week end are usually good. Let me know what you think.
