myWind IT AppBefore I go ahead and talk a bit about mobile access while abroad, I thought I would start off with the technology fails of the trip. Some were completely avoidable, and some, not so much. I guess first I will tackle the issue of power.The last time I vacationed I only vacationed with one device: my smartphone. It was also a non-connected phone so the battery lasted a long
Vacation look back: Greece
Roman Era Bathtub, Museum of PatraIn the last part of the vacation wrap-up we have Greece, where we spent the most time during this vacation. I guess if I had to give an elevator (or Doogie Howser journal blurb) to this it would be "seeing old things with new eyes, and meeting new people."I guess the first thing to tackle is my Greek citizenship. After many years, and lots of back and forth about what
Halo 2 | Done
It's not often that I go back to older xbox games (original xbox) to play a game that doesn't exist on the 360, but Halo 2 was an exception. I had started off with Halo 3, which was a little confusing (given that I didn't have the storyline established), moved on ODST and then to the prequel (Halo: Reach), which gave me some more information, and then to the Anniversary remaster. For reviews of those
Vacation lookback: Italy (Part III)
Romulus and RemusLast, but not least, in the Italian leg of our trip: Rome, and where we spent most of our time in Italy. My first impression was that Rome (unlike Naples) is a place that I would gladly live in, and I would definitely would like to visit again!We stayed at a hotel called Villa Tassoni, where out hotel room had a small kitchenette. This made is possible to not eat out a lot and
Vacation lookback: Italy (Part II)
Pompeii No EntryIn Italy we stayed a few days in Naples, so that we could explore the region and go visit the ancient sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the Villa Poppaea in Oplontis. I have to admit that I was really excited about going to Naples and visiting all the ancient sites! I guess when you're excited about something it can only let you down LOL :-) So, where to begin? How about
Vacation lookback: Italy (Part I)
Part II of my little lookback on this year's vacation. I was wondering whether I should write about Greece first, or whether I should write about Italy. I thought that I should write about Italy first, since it was the somewhere in-between the Netherlands and Greece, rather than try to tackle Greece first (4 weeks), and then the shorter duration (13 days) in Italy.We got to Italy by way of ship.

It's been a week or so since we came back from our vacation. Now that the jetlag has subsided and I am back to normal, I thought it would be good to have a concise overview of the highlights and lowlights of the trip. I guess I will be starting with the Netherlands since it was both the beginning and the end of the trip.I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into when I decided to stay in the
