Not that anyone cares but...

So im going to europe in February with some friends and we have the autobahn driving all planned out. Im fucking pumped.

we fly to italy....skip a few days. then dublin...skip some more, except the day with the guinness factory...we fly to berlin, rent a BMW drive to Drezdig(spelling) for a concert. Then drive to Frankfurt.



FTW.
anyone in germany know if the roads are any good between those cities? I mean...I know its 100% better then CA roads...but any input would be good.

also i pikced up my international license from AAA. So incase i get pulled over(god help me) i should be fine.

Italy is crowded on the Autostrada, specially from the half of the boot on up. Best time to move around with a vehicle is from 1PM-4PM (siesta time)Germany, if you're on the 'bahn and see a speed sign, SLOW DOWN or you'll look at the flash from the corner of your eye. Weather is so-so with rain and clouds but right now it's in the low to mid 40's. Have fun.

EDIT: Don't go any fast in Italy
if you go over 11 kph over the limit, they can charge you up to 450 Euro.
Screw Italian carabinieri they're just not fair

I have to quote you!

In our highway speed limit is 130 km/h!
But from few time, for a new law, the speed cameras have to be indicated not max. of 400 m.

Enjoy your holidays!
