European Trip Journal - Final Entry
Hello friends. We did get back and have had almost two full days trying to get back in the swing of things. Our travel day on Friday was long. We arrived into Newark on time at 1:30PM EST after a 9 1/2 hour plane flight from Milan. We had a scheduled 5 hour layover that turned into a 9 hour layover because our plane was held up on Tampa due to bad weather. We finally stepped foot in our house at 2AM on Saturday morning after a 27 112 hour travel day.My reflections on the trip have been noted in ...

European Trip Journal - Day 9 - 11
Buon giorno from Milano (Milan), Italy! I write this sitting down in an Internet Cafe close to the hotel at 5:00PM local time (10AM Houston Time). Today is Thursday and is our last full day on our trip before heading back tomorrow. We are both exhausted and ready to come home for some rest.You have probably worried that I haven't heard from me in three days. While in Cannes, it was very expensive to use the Internet as I originally thought it was free. We traveled most of the day yesterday and w...

European Trip Journal - Day 7 & 8
Greetings from Cannes, France. As I write this it is Monday evening at 10:57 PM local time in Cannes. The last I wrote we were preparing to leave Venice for our trip to Cannes. Well, I must say we had the most difficult travel day of our trip yesterday.The main reason we made this trip was due to a business appointment I needed to make. ACAD-Plus (the company for which I work) is one of the top software resellers for a Dutch company called Cyco Software (pronounced See'Ko, NOT Psyco). Our new ti...

European Trip Journal - Day 5 & 6
Hello to all from Venice. I type this at about 7:15PM local time (GMT+l). Sorry I could not post an entry yesterday. We were in transit all day from Salzburg. I did not think I would be able to post today because the hotel does not have Internet. I am sitting in a "Cyber Cafe" in Venice. Very romantic.Lots to tell, but I will be brief because this is costing me 2.50€ for each quarter hour. The train ride was interesting because we went through a blizzard on the way. You don't think of snow ...

European Trip Journal - Day 4
Before I get started on today's entry, I thought I would tell you the first city stop from yesterday. The name of the city is St. Gilgen. This is the city where Mozart's mother was born. In fact, I took a picture of the house.Back on today. This morning we took the Salzburg city tour which lasted only an hour. After the Sound of Music tour this was a waste of time and money. There was very little new information and the guide was not very good, except she spoke 5 languages. We had folks from Ita...
