Hello all! This forum has been very useful so far. I'd like some advice for those experienced in driving in Europe. I'm envisioning a total time away from home of maybe 10-12 days.
In general, I don't enjoy driving, but I do enjoy seeing the world, and having a delivery date confirmed for mid-May, plan to take advantage of the insurance coverage to do the European road trip. My travel style is to minimize stays in larger cities, for the most part, and to stay at least 3 days or more in one location. The friend that is going with me will share the driving. We are looking at either a Western Europe or Eastern Europe itinerary.
I've always been interested in Prague, so the Eastern Itinerary option would focus on going to Prague, and perhaps Vienna, and then doing a drop-off in Munich.
On the otherhand, we'd like to see a show and attend the Chelsea flower show in London, and so the Western Itinerary option would have us mainly on a route that would end up with us dropping the car off in Amsterdam, Antwerp or London.
Can anyone comment on which itinerary, overall, would be easier to drive, and might have more options for stops in less populated areas en route? We like to keep each day's travel time to no more than 5 hours.
Thanks for any input!
