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.
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.
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.
