I'm not a big fan of ferries, but I'll report if we take it.

But it isn't such a big detour from Venice to San Marino. Or did you choose the route over the Brenner? Or the Gotthard?

comment Roadtrip in Southeastern Europe: too much for 4 weeks?
I'm living in Liechtenstein. My driving experience is not so bad I think. I've only 8 years experience but I did some 5000 - 10000 km roadtrip in the last years and I already drove in the following countries: Gibraltar, Portugal, Spain, Andorra, France, Monaco, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia. I hope I didn't miss something.

Thanks, taking the ferry is a really good idea.

He Mark. Thanks for your hints. But I skipped some cities on purpose. I was already in Venice and also in Plitivce National Park and Dubrovnik I was also in my roadtrip 2007. Generally I enjoy driving in foreign countries a lot. I did a 10'000 km roadtrip in Spain and France 2009 in 29 days, but I'm not sure if the streets have the same quality in southeastern europe.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions! The detour to San Marino can easily be skipped. I just included it here since I've never been there. Zürich -> Villach or also the Brenner Autobahn I drove already a lot of times. Concerning the last leg. Yes it is really a long trip, but I also did Andorra -> Toulouse -> Liechtenstein in one day and this time we are two drivers. But maybe you're right and one overnight stop in Budapest is a good idea.

comment Romantic restaurants in ski area in Austria
Austria has a lot of ski resorts. Can you bit a little bit more specific on the region? Or do you really want to cover whole Austria?

comment Vomitorium: Only common in the German-speaking world?
I'm not sure if this is really a vomitorium. To me the sink looks quite narrow and also the flushing seems not to be extra strong. For me it looks more like a place where you can empty a transportable toilet. I've seen this quite often on camping grounds.

comment Maps with road drivability grading
There are special maps for trcuks/vans. They indicate if there are narrow streets or very tight curves. Maybe you can consult these maps. If it is suitable for a truck, you will be able to drive there too ;)

comment Temporary exhibitions in Helsinki before christmas
I think the question is absolutely fine even in the original version. Otherwise we would have to close questions concerning for example solar eclipses to because they are very localized.

comment Why do there seem to be no long distance buses in France?
Ok I should have mentioned that I compared the train ticket prices only to Switzerland. And then it is really low. But if you're lucky you get some special offer. In 2006 I took a TGV from Basel to Paris for just 12 Swiss Francs!

comment Why do there seem to be no long distance buses in France?
I just guess that there are no long distance buses because the railway system is established quite well. And with the TGV the connections in France and also international connections are really fast. Additionally the train ticket prices seem quite low to me so that buses will probably not be able to compete.
