  3. DianneT added a post in a topic Thinking of going to Italy in August   

    Hi Sorry to be late in answering your post.  We have been to Italy a few times.  Have a look at my website 
    www.joysofeuropeacaravanning.co.uk   you might find some useful info.  We have been to southern Italy with an 8 metre, twin axle,  caravan and never had a problem.  I can give you a route if you like to email me with your address to dvphillips14@hotmail.com  I have already done one with campsites en route with map for someone going to Garda from Rotterdam.in a MHome.
    It seems a long way to go for just 8 nights it will take 2 night halts to get to Garda or Venice area's.and 2 coming back at least.
    Any questions please ask will be pleased to help.
    Cheers DianneT

  4. DianneT added a topic in Austria   

    Info for Western Austria 2017.
    Next year on April 24th 2017 the Arlberg Tunnel in the West of Austria will be closed  to all traffic, night and day till the 2nd of October 2017.  This is due to major work to get the Tunnel up to date.  Some work was completed in 2015 when the Tunnel was closed for a similar period.
    As this Tunnel is the major route from the Tyrol to the Voralburg and then into Germany and the Bodensee it will be inconvenient for Travellers.  ASFING will allow Cars towing Caravans over the Arlberg Pass during the closure of Tunnel.  This pass is very steep in parts and after travelling it in June 2015 with our large caravan would not attempt it again.  It is a very steep and twisty route from St Anton to the top with no laybys till near the top.  It was very busy in 2015 with lorry's and buses and it is a normal two way road.  
     
    ASFINAG the authority in charge of Austrian Roads and Tunnels, who also collect the Vignette Monies which is solely used for the purpose, does give an alternative route which I have put the link for this here.   htpp://www.joysofeuropeancaravanning.co.uk/latestnewsinfo.htm
    I hope this will help anyone who contemplates visiting the wonderful Country of Austria this coming year.  There is loads more information on Austria with Site reviews and Places to visit.  Any questions just ask will be pleased to help.

    Hi mattandkirsty we have visited Italy many times and have stopped near to Sorrento plus on Lake Braciano to visit Rome.  The last year we were there we went right down to the heel of Italy to the Bari area to visit Arberobello to visit the Trulli Houses. You will find most of the Campsites we use are in the ACSI Camping Card Scheme .  Are you going before the end of June?  Any more help please ask will be pleased to help. Routes are also on my website.

  19. DianneT added a post in a topic Ferry and Tunnel prices   

    We are booked on Eurotunnel mid April coming home mid June. For Kia Sorento and 8 metre caravan through the Caravan Club cost £219.52 Pence booked end of January. I think it is a good price for the convenience of the tunnel crossing.

    I have an iPad and would not want any other Tablet I have a WiFi HP Printer,Copier Scanner and a HP Windows 8 Laptop but with Windows 7 loaded on it. Together with the Huawei Smart Phone I am covered with everything I need. They all work well together too.

    Did you look at pics on last years trip on my website as in the link in my signature?
    For the Rhine look at ACSI Campsite at Geisenheim have not topped there but have visited it to have a look. Site is not near the Railways so not noisy from Trains running all day and night as you get on some sites on the river both sides. This site is not too far outside Rudesheim and handy for touring the Rhine Area there are two other sites mentioned on my website we have stopped at St Goar which has train noise or one nearer to Wiesbaden at Hattenheim not near the trains but not ACSI All these sites are oon Page 1 and 3 in Euro Site Reviews Germany.
    Hope this helps sonjaf

  24. DianneT added a post in a topic Dartford Tunnel crossing - new payment methods   

    We only use the Dartford Crossing once a year and as we go over from North to South at around 2am there is no charge so I will pay for 1 use on line before we leave home for return journey in 2 months at £2.50 which is good value. We have never paid extra for the caravan in 11 years.
