European roadtrip 2

Two years ago we did a late summer road trip through Slovenia and Croatia, starting in the Czech Republic. We enjoyed it so much that this summer we are taking another road trip, this time south to Cinque Terre and Cote d’Azur in France. We’re keen to see some of the famously beautiful towns of Germany that we haven’t visited yet, such as Freiburg and Heidelburg.

I thought I’d share our itinerary so you can see where we’re off to – photos courtesy of others who have been there already, except for the one above of Tübingen which I took myself a few years ago.
