I just joined the forum, glad to do it and to bring ENGLISH subject..
So straight to the point, I am planing to drive from Malmö to Rome, Italy during this summer, and I have some questions for you those with experience in traveling around...
1- I hold a non-EU driving license, which I am driving with it now during my study time here in Malmö. Is there any special regulations when I cross different countries!! I mean should I apply for international driving license, which i personally think useless as any travel agent can do it.!!
2- I will drive an american coupe sport car , and we need some extra cargo space, We usually use cargo carrier in (my home country) that attached to the back trailer hitch. and since I never saw one in Sweden, so I am wondering if it is legal or not to have it in Europe . !! it looks like one of those.
3- since my car is USA imported, and Swedish registered but have white plates, without the blue strap and "S" indicate "Sweden".. Should I consider anything.
4- According to the primary plan, we will do it in this way: Start point form Malmö..... Dusseldorf, Germany....... 2 nights Paris, France,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.... 5 nights Geneva, Switzerland........ 2 nights Rome, Italy..................... 4 nights Venice, Italy.................... 2 nights Milan, Italy...................... 2 nights Interlaken, Switzerland..... 2 night Rust, Germany................ 4/5 nights.. we will visit europa park, black forest area Frankfort, Germany........... 2 night Hambourg, Germany......... 2 night Ends point at Malmö............
What is the best option to go from Sweden to Germany,,!!
In your opinion, Is there any places recommended to bring to the list, also any places I should remove from my list!!
Is there any specific routes I should avoid for a wise reason!! Any routes i must take, that is fun to drive (for both driver and passengers)
Is there any good places as resting points (in case we had to stop in between)
I am flexible with timing, routes and destination.. your suggestions are really appreciated.
The most important question, Should I book accommodation from here, or just drop in (in case we are late on schedule), what are the chances that it would be fully booked in the small cities in that time of the year!!
Extra info: Travelers: me, my wife, 6 year daughter and 2 year son. Car engine: Benzene, V6 Time available: 30 days. (mid june-mid July) Goal 1: Disney Land in Paris and europa park in Germany for the kids. Goal 2: Italy, my wife dream, which I want to make true. Standards of living: 3 stars hotel around (1000 SEK/night)
I think I keep the rest of the questions for a later stage, and I hope I find some interactions and good inputs to the plan
