Well done Peter, it's a long old drive, but I would love to do it again. The last time was about fifteen years ago as I had been invited to a wedding in Brasov, Romania. I drove to France first and stopped off at my sister's in Eastern France for a few days and to collect her. We spent several days over the trip, stopping off in Salzburg, Budapest another town on the Great Hungarian plain, the name of which I cannot remember, then on into Romania. A wander around Western Romania, where I hadn't been before, then on to Brasov. We had booked a hotel in Poiana Brasov where I had stayed many time before and had a pleasant week with friends in that area culminating in the wedding. Then on into Northern Romania to visit the painted monasteries, then to Mara Mures, a region full of Romanian folk lore and custom. Crossing the border into Hungary, we found the biggest Tesco we had ever seen, complete with Skoda car dealership, on across Northern Hungary then back through southern Germany and spending a few days around Lake Constance, watching the airships flying out of Friedrichshafen. Then back to my sister's chateau in the Jura. It was a lovely holiday, even though the roads in Romania ruined the suspension on my car. How I wish I could do it again. I envy you Peter and the very best of luck. Postscript. The marriage broke up a couple of months ago.
