SinE – Day 2: Rome

Before I begin, an update on photos: I’ve uploaded panoramas to Google+ so that you can interact with them in “3D”! Simply click on the link in the captions. The last post has been updated as well.

I’ve been pretty slow on posting because of studies (at this rate it might take a year to complete), but the semester’s nearly up so I expect to be able to post more frequently in June/July.

Not only that, Chrome crashed twice when writing this post (because of Flickr!) before WordPress saved my changes, so I’m getting into the habit of saving more often.

 


Day 2/February 3: Rome

Wet.

It was mostly showers on-off all day which put a damper on things, so Day 2 was spent going slower than I had the previous day and ended up going to far fewer places than expected.

SinE – Day 1: Rome

Update: Now with photo sphere links for panoramas (15 May)

After going through a couple of weeks of hectic university projects (of which the last week I have now nicknamed the “Assignment Week from Hell” because teachers must be colluding to make everything due in that week,) I have finally been able to resume organising and posting!

Images for the entire trip will be available on my Flickr album – they’ll be incrementally released once I finish their respective blog posts, so right now you’ll only see photos relevant to the first day or so. Continue reading SinE – Day 1: Rome

SinE – Day -1: Europe?

There are probably a handful of people who actually know I’m going to Europe… (or for that matter, that I’ve been in Auckland for a bit.)

So here I am at Auckland Airport, with the plane sitting outside which means I don’t get to use an airbridge (boo!)

CX 197/198 plane sits on tarmac at Auckland International Airport
Shuttle buses instead of airbridges? How dare they!

I’ll be in Hong Kong via. CX198 in roughly 12 hours and then another 12 hours to a destination in Europe, adding to a combined +1 day difference from the date of departure (hence “Day -1”.) Any guesses to where the destination is?

I’ll be there for just over three weeks, going in roughly a semicircular sweeping travel path within Europe before returning with a brief 2 night stopover in Hong Kong.

This has also been probably the most last minute travel trip ever. Plane tickets purchased less than a week ago, and only the first week of accommodation reserved. But that adds to the excitement doesn’t it?

I’ll be going over travel plans as I go, so suggestions would also be nice to hear!

I’m going solo – and “Solo in Europe” just so happens to share the “SinE” acronym that people from Robogals would know. (No trademark was infringed right? :P)

Anyway, boarding is about to begin. Wi-Fi is everywhere so I should be able to catch up a little over the trip.

See you in Hong Kong (while transiting!)
