I fancied something different for the return leg though and suggested the Baltic Route to my wife.

I didn't realise that the E67 wasn't motorway though. Do people know what the speed limits/driving conditions are like on it?

Thanks
E67 through Baltic's is OK. Lithuania has a few kilometers of motorway there, rest of it is is one lane in each direction but bypasses almost every town on route. In Latvia the whole E67 has been reconstructed in the last 10 years, it's mostly 1,5 lane road (like this) in each direction, and bypass most of the towns on route. Some minor repaving works are going on this summer, but it shouldn't take up much more time than usual. The parts around Riga could be a little bit congested during rush hour though.

Don't know about Lithuania and Estonia in summer, but in Latvia the E67's speed limit is 90 km/h, except for A1 (north of Riga) which has a speed limit of 100 km/h. In populated places - 50 km/h.

But why not go to all places, Poland is a small country and it is only some short hour to go from one place to the other, as long as you don't get stuck in a queue to give 9 zl at the toll booth. If you follow the Vistula or DK 79 between Warsaw and Krakow you can visit beautiful and historical Sandomierz

There are some places near the city centre, with many parkings available but they require payment:
On the waterfront
Near the railway station (multi-storey)
Near the court (underground)
"Giulia" shopping centre (multi-storey)
You can find a free space by just driving around streets but it requires time and luck.
Or park in Opicina and take the tram.

Thank you You really have cheered me up. I think I will look up for an empty place and if I did not succeed, I will take the place on the waterfront. Opicina tramway is one of the most essential sights to me

If you take the tram both ways you can avoid parking in Trieste at all. Opicina is a small town and you can find plenty of free parking space. If you want to go to Trieste by car and you don't mind walking a bit, you can park your car somewhere around Via Commerciale (the road that leads into Trieste centre if you come from Fernetti), it's 1 or 2 km from the city centre.

If you need to know something else about Trieste and surroundings feel free to ask. For some reasons it's a sort of my second residence, and just a hour away from where I actually reside, so I know a lot about the city. Unfortunately I won't be in Trieste next weekend.

it is not contradictory with Italy I think to Sarti at Sidonia peninsula, but I don't know the exact date so far. It depends on my PhD. defending term and my fiancée's graduation event date. We don't know any of them by now.

I don't know if that's true in every country, but out of all the times I've been stopped 50% of the time I was let go with a warning. Here this is quite common.

Iit is Europe. And especially Eastern Europe where bribing policemen was some years ago quite usual, and in some countries it is usual even now. In Hungary in the 90's bribing a policemen was, I can say, a matter of course. I myself bribed policemen (it's alredy barred :-)).
So if the police stops you and let you go without paying a fine, the main reason for that is bribe. That's why is it in some European nations compulsory for police officers to charge every one who broke the rule, without the possibility of measuring whether it was really dangerous or not.
Additionally, in Europe it is quite usual that the police has an amount of money which they are orderd to get from fines, any way. So they must get the money, doesn't matter whether you drove too fast or not. Sometimes they put a very new speed limit sign somewhere and then charge every drivers who drive there every day and are driving with the usual speed without noticing the new sign.

it is like the old joke, at the Policeman's Ball when they award prizes to the participants of the raffle -
3rd prize - trip to Crimea
2nd prize - new Lada
1st prize - portable STOP sign
