Hi people we are new to this so as much help as possible would be great!

We have booked a month off work in july and have very very roughly planned a trip to drive and camp through part of europe. So far we have decided on leaving Cornwall UK and going straight to catch the Euro Tunnel over to france.
This would be stage one of the trip, where we would only spend about 3 days, but being summer, would love to go somewhere green, picturesque, with good camping, but within reason on route to mount blanc.
We then want to concentrate mainly on traveling from mont blanc, east across Switzerland and into western Austria. Summer Skiing :) But as we have never done anything like this before, we dont want to miss somewhere that is really worth visiting! Any ideas at all will be a massive help as we want to start booking campsites soon.

Also a route home from Austria, maybe the german boarder?

Thanks all :)

Me and a few mates drove from wales to sardinia last summer.
Was an incredible experience, but expensive.

Im not sure i can be much help with any routes as we pretty much headed straight down through france, through mont blanc and down to geona.
But if you have any questions ill do my best.

Dan :)

Thanks Dan,

Even just little things like how much of it you can drive, or where you leave your car when climbing mont blanc, just silly little things like that will help lol

Cheers :)
