Give us your tired, your poor, your... addresses

If you want postcards from Europe, send us your address and, if you care, what city you want it from. No promises, but we'll do our best.

Let the "Nice" puns commence!

First night of the trip has been taken care of! We'll be staying at the Villa Saint Exupery Hostel in Nice. Decided that it was well worth it to know where we were gonna crash at 11:00pm on our first night in Europe. Patrick has been doing a lot of the day-to-day city workups, but has pushed it back to me so that he can concentrate on graduating. I've updated the Nice, Genova, and Vernazza pages, and I'll plow further through over the next few days. Suggestions from all you globetrotters out there on things to do in each of the cities are MORE than welcome! Hit us up on aim, or just log-in if you can get the password from the hint at the bottom of the page.

We've been agonizing over tweaks to the itinerary, such as adding in Kandersteg International Scout Centre and trying to figure out what that bounced out. I'm STILL fiddling with what to do from Paris on into Bretagne and Normandie. I'll be talking to our mutual friend Kat who just returned from her month-long Gallic sojourn. I'm hoping she can jog my memory and add ideas of her own. I feel like a kid in a Very Big Candystore.

Thanks to Patrick's Wiki Fu, we now have an editable Itinerary, accessible via the side bar.

Also, Patrick thinks this map needs more airtime, so he's posting it on the front page.

City pages started

Trying to make sure we can do Giverny, I ran across a great train->bike route for getting there. Looks like it beats the heck out of a bus, so I created a Paris page and slapped it in there, the first of our Cities pages. I'll create some sort of cities/day-by-day schedule later, but this is a start.

Also, the WikiStyle page is a good quick reference to make the wiki do most common tricks.

Flights by next week, REI raid imminent

As expected, both of our birthday gifts this year had this trip as a focal point. Wicking REI pants and shirt for Patrick, and a travel book, bottle of wine, and Stewart shirt for me. We're not only gonna do this, we're gonna make this *look* good.

Added a To Do page and a Flight Info page.

Currently trying to find a good solution for handling photo dumps, perhaps as large as 100MB at a time, in an orderly and reliable fashion. Of course, gotta buy the camera before then, too.
