I'm thinking about taking myself off on a tour of western Europe a
bit later in the year, France, Spain, Germany, Belgium etc.
Can anyone point me at useful sources of info regarding driving
requirements and cheap places to stay?
Any pointers to potential pitfalls would be useful as well.As you probably know I have spent a large chunk of my life driving
to every country in Europe, The Middle East and North Africa, I
could give you a lot of useful information however as you are known
to troll and the details of your proposed trip are vague I am
reluctant to spout volumes of advice.
Some bits of general advice, becoming more obvious the further you
get from Dover,
1, Learn the phrase "I don't have any money" in as many languages

bill, don't rely on credit/debit card service being available in

3. Some places the secondary currency is cigarettes, find out the

No, it wasn't.
Brimstone did say "Western Europe", then "France, Spain, Germany,
Belgium" for a start. I'd love to see NM try and bribe a German copper
with cigarettes or small change. His advice was tosh. It might have
worked 40 years ago...
Here is as good a place to start as any
As he hadn't detailed any specific journey then I posted general advice,
I did qualify it by saying it becomes more valid the further you get
from Dover, Brimstone, being a sensible chap, will not assume that I was
advocating bribing German Border Guards (if you can find one these
As driving in Western Eurpoe, regardless of actual country, is very
similar one country from another I thought it unnecessary to post such
You seem to have found this offensive, tough shit clever cunt.
You've taken 3 paragraphs to say "I posted a load of shit"
Why did you?
