Avanti

Despite being told, that it had not snowed all winter, as I left the Hotel, it was trying to. I caught the Arlanda Express out to the airport and checked in to Rome via Munich. My last experience of changing flights to make a connection had not been good, and I wasn't looking forward to it, as I needed to change flights at Munich.

Plane today, train tomorrow

I arrived in Denver last night for the first time in five years and travelled up to Broomfield. I am attending Sun's Data Management Ambassador's conference for the first time.

On the plane, I finished yesterday's Guardian Travel section. This is celebrating the opening of St. Pancras Euro\* Terminal, which reduces the train time to travel to a number of western european cities. I am expecting to visit Brussels more frequently over the next couple of months, so thier hints about Brussels should be useful, it's a shame that St. Pancras is two hours away from where I live.

Inspirations for travel

I have just changed the wallpaper on my computers.

 

A Casteljo evening...

 

This is taken and linked to a flickr correspondent called "acampm1", and I have marked it as one of my favourites. It certainly makes me want to go there, and it looks great on a large screen. Other ideas for my holidays were suggested by the Guardian over the weekend and I have tagged them at delicious:holiday. They suggest as an environmentally friendly traveller, that one can go by train to Berlin, Andalusia or Venice. The journey from Paris to Madrid using the TrainHotel sounds both fun and comfortable.
