A few random thoughts on travels

I think that I probably mentioned before that I'm thinking of trying to make it to Europe sometime in June. Thus far, here's what I'm thinking:

  1. Fly direct to Paris
  2. Grab Eurail pass
  3. Fly back from Rome to Montreal
  4. Get on a flight from Montreal back hom^H^H^H to my unofficial residence.

The reason for steps 3 and 4 is that I can get a relatively cheap flights between North America and Europe on a charter that a few of my coworkers have used before. They fly direct to Paris from where I live, but they only fly from Rome to Montreal and Toronto. Even with an upgrade from a 31" seat pitch to a 36" seat pitch for a couple hundred $$$ (I figure that being over 6 feet tall I could use the extra room) - it's about $1100 for the flights. I looked at other airlines, and they were charging something like $3000 for the round trip... somehow I think that I can find a flight back from Montreal for less than $2000.


What countries do you plan to visit between France and Italy?

Not 100% sure yet. Would like to end up in Switzerland, and I'd also like to see Prague (Hungary). Maybe one of Germany or the Netherlands...

Interested in going?

I'm interested to go to Europe, but I don't know what my work schedule is going to be like.
