Advance warning: I may not be around much for the next month or so. After not going anywhere for the first half of the year, I'm about to have three foreign trips in very quick succession:
- Sun 23 to Sat 29 August: a railway meander from Santiago de Compostela to Strasbourg, via Madrid, Barcelona, southern France and hopefully a bit of Italy
- Thu 3 - Mon 7 September: Sardinia, trying to see the bits that were omitted from the tour I went on last October
- Thu 17 - Wed 23 September: another meander, through the Balkans this time, from Kosovo via Macedonia and Thessaloniki to Athens (or that's the intention)
As you might guess, much of my free time when I'm not on holiday will be taken up organising bits of holiday - booking planes, trains and hotels.

Yes, the film title was going through my head as I wrote the words. I'm hoping that automobiles will not need to feature in any part of these trips: I don't drive, taxis are expensive, and any other unexpected interaction with a car is likely to be painful.

Have fun, keep us updated when you can, and make sure you tell us about it all when you get back :) Particularly interested to know what you think of Thessaloniki!

I really want to travel the old Egnatian Way sometime - Durres to Istanbul via Thessaloniki...

I'm in South Carolina until Monday so posting will probably be sporadic.

Christmas tomorrow, so I'm going to my parents house for a few days to catch up with them and steal some of my dads supply of Leffe Brown.
They have internet, but I'll be posting a bit less.

No, it's not bad. Belgian beer is a somewhat obscure field of knowledge (albeit one I've rather enjoyed exploring over the last 20 years) - I wouldn't expect you to know it, any more than I'm familiar with most late Byzantine history.

I'm leaving for North Carolina and Washington, D.C. today. Be gone until next Friday but I'm sure I'll find time to post. :)
