We are thinking of going via France, Belgium Germany, Austria, Slovenia, and a bit of Italy in September; and then on through Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Greece and then home to the Valley of the Roses. It will be more about the journey rather than getting to Bulgaria quickly as you've probably guessed!
Having driven 2000 miles around BG and Romania recently, an up to date satnav will be an absolute must backed up with maps for the southern leg of the journey. Just hope we are still part of Europe when we do it.
You can get cheap unbranded sat navs off Ebay with free map updates for less than £30, i just got a new one after the battery failed on my old unit, double checked on Google maps to see if the new roads are on, and its ok.
