Thanks for all the replies
We are in our late 50's and have two adult children Niall 36 and Shauna 34 who now lives in Australia she is Married to Mark who is Scottish they live in Brisbane.
We usually drive to Rosslare take the ferry to Fish guard drive up through England take the Channel tunnel to Calais We find that using this route we avoid Paris and a good deal of France where there are a lot of tolls We usually drive to Frankfort then to Segre b In Croatia then we usually drive from Zagreb in one journey through Serbia through to Sofia and then the last leg from Sofia to Varna and then to Balchik It is the longest section of the journey and takes sometimes, depending on the traffic in Belgrade,it will take 15//17 hours.
The journey takes three days minimum but it depends on the time of day we arrive in France.
We have traveled through Hungry and Romania but the Romanian Mountains through Transylvania are to bee avoided if you can especially if you are driving a RHD Vehicle, which we did for three years it can be quite scarey to have a large Turkish lorry very close to you as you try to negotiate the winding roads of Romania
Going back takes longer as we need to visit a vet in Calais to comply with the requirements of 'Pet Travel' We purchased a LHD estate two years ago and it definitely makes the driving easier but as you know the Bulgarian drivers are very much in your face and it is prudent to give way at all times
So again thanks for all the replies we can be contacted by email at email@example.com
