Going to Europe!

August 21st, 2005 by Jason · 2 Comments

In just a couple weeks Nance and I will be heading off to Europe for three weeks. Being a geek I decided to see if I could find a google maps implementation which would allow me to plot our trip on a map. I found Gmaps Pedometer which allows you to plot a map of your run/walk. Obviously, we’re not walking the trip (it came out to approximately 8,179 miles), but the app did allow me to map out our trip. Here’s the map and itinerary:

Our Trip to Europe

We’re flying out of Los Angeles with Virgin Atlantic from whom we got a great deal that gets us to London. The day after touching down in London we fly out with a small European airline (EasyJet) to take us down to Rome (another great deal at $50 a person). After hanging out in Rome for a few days we’ll take the train up to Cinque Terra. Then over to Venice for a weekend (even though Isaac swears no one actually lives in the town and its not worth the visit!). Next, we’ll take the train to Bolzano, and from there a bus up to Castelrotto, a small town in the Dolomites. After hiking around there for a bit we’ll take an overnight train to Budapest, Hungary for something a little more off the beaten path. Finally, we’ll fly back up to London for a few days. Should be a blast! If you have any good places to stay/eat/stay in any of the locations we’re visiting let us know.

    Do you think i could fit in your backpack? I try to cut down on the icecream so i might be an easier fit. Hey, what reading materials are you and nancy taking? Don’t underestimate that decision. I know i loved my euro trip all the more when i was reading Potok’s The Gift of Asher Lev.

    Do you think you could parachute out of your plane flying over Germany and visit us?
