But who’s counting?

Search On

In a sea of tacky, misogynistic Super Bowl ads, Google’s message stood apart.

Runner ups: Kia and Coke.

I’ve added a new thingamajig to this blog’s sidebar which I’m calling a Microfeed (a.k.a. an “activity stream”). It’s a simple linked list of all the stuff I’m creating or enjoying around the web. There are blog posts, tweets, photos, links, favorites, and various other odds and ends. And it’s all powered by the same gizmo that makes m.iwalt.com tick. Check it out!

Vernazza → Venice

From my vacation notebook from last year…

07:00 Repack Bags
09:30 Withdraw €60+
09:45 Check-out of Hotel
10:27 Leave Vernazza
10:55 Leave Monterosso
13:55 Arrive Milan
14:35 Depart Milan
17:10 Arrive Venice

Naturally, the Cinque Terre trains went off the rails (metaphorically and possibly literally) and we wound up leaving Monterosso much later than we expected but (for reasons that are still unclear to me) we got to Venice in plenty of time to get completely lost and still find our hotel before dark.
