Travels

During 2008 I was given the opportunity to spend a month in India for my then employer, AOL. Myself and a colleague were asked to train team leaders in call centres that worked with our company, one based in Mumbai and the other in Bangalore.
Along with the research and planning I did before (long before) I left, I also spent some time exploring the world of iPhone apps. I have an iPhone 4, the main advantage being an electronic compass which tells you what direction the iPhone is pointing in.

Day 1

The journey from Milan to Venice was uneventful. I travelled 2nd class this time because it the journey time was much shorter than from Paris to Milan, a little under three hours this time. It was very overcast and rained most of the way, but the scenery didn't look much to write home about anyway.

Day 1

Caught the TGV from Gare de Lyon, which through cunning planning was about 8 minutes walk from the hotel. The station is hard to miss, what with the huge clock tower jutting out of it. Since it was still dark when I arrived, the illuminated clock was a handy beacon, though the plentiful signage was also helpful. I only needed to check the iPhone map when I left the hotel.

Day 1

Flew out from Cork today (26th Feb 2011), lovely easy airport to start off the trip. In fact I was the only person going through security at 8.40 am or so.
In just under 3 weeks I'll be off on my European sojourn, so I thought I'd share some of the research I've done inĀ  advance, and some of the sites I hope to visit.
