Paris, we will miss you.

Begin/end the day in: Paris, FR / Phoenix, AZ, US Transportation: Paris to Phoenix via London on BA. BA in-flight service was a bit better than the last time we did the LHR-PHX route. One certainly wouldn’t confuse the service Read more…

Less than 2 and still a few Q’s

Still playing with the best way to do the Dalmatian coast/islands. The plan has been to dump the car in Split; take the ferry to Korcula and spend a couple of days there and then do a bus/ferry trip to Dubrovnik. Read more…


Less than 3 weeks to Euro 2012

Planning for Euro 2012 is just about wrapped up. In retrospect, we probably should have done all the transportation stuff first, but that didn’t happen and now we’re working on a little complexity with getting from Split to Dubrobnick via Read more…
