we usually travel in out of season- it saves on hotels. in italy in november is still warm (obviously italians would disagree),but for us it is like stretched summer :))

we are trying to travel out of season too, unda - but its difficult with a schoolgirl. so we travel mostly in may/june. i don't like the heat in august when all the italians are in holiday. beaches are full... in may you can see flowers, the fields and gras are not burnt like in summer. you can visit a town at midday. in summer you are looking for shadow... this year we got a very cheap adress in portugal -we rent a house with pool for 2 families (with friends). 250 euro a week - great. yes, understanding to strech summer into november is saving money and it is a good feeling to catch some sun... while wheather in Scotland is rainy and grey...

when it is classed as out of season in bavaria? i was surprised to find out that june is not in season in france. and how about winter ?- is possible drive with wee car on small roads?

the summer holidays will be over coming monday (bavaria and baden-württemberg). this year they have holidays from 03.08. to 14.09.2009. driving with car in winter: in germany it is law to change from normal to snow tire in winter. in the mountains ov bavaria you have to use snow chains. winter service is very good - but - small streets or heavy snowfall....
