Notes for Episode 22 - Planes, trains and automobiles

A quick synopsis of my new Episode -- Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Planes -- about 8 - 15 hours from US depending upon location, stops, etc. Generally overnight flights. Fairs now $800 - $1200 in season. I wouldn't bother using Planes to travel within Italy. Use the trains. Itakes a long time with planes because of security. Cost about $200-$450 depending upon season.

Trains -- Highly recommended. Fast, efficient, relatively inexpensive, go almost everywhere, comfortable if you get a 6-person birth. You can buy a reserved ticket for a small added price to guarantee a seat. Great place to meet other travelers. Trains may be a bit late, because Italians can be a bit late.

Automobiles -- Good for traveling to small towns, wineries, etc. Fast especially when using Autostrade. But, very expensive. $500 - $1200/week depending upon size. Also must purchase insurance. Gas is about $6/gallon now. Tolls on Autostrade are expensive. Price is OK if you're traveling with several people.

Busses -- Busses are, well, bussess. Go everywhere, but take longer. Intracity busses are great to get around, and you buy tickets at Bars and Tabacchis - sounds weird, but true.

  • My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
