New Map

Posted: April 10th, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Life & Travels, Route | 2 Comments »

There’s a new map that gives a better overview where I’m currently at and of my last journey.

If you wanna see the old map with the details of my walk by foot, follow this link.

This is the link to the new Google map.

    And interestingly enoguh there is a $1,000 contribution made by Tempel Smith, Jr. Trust on September 20, 2011 to the Suzi Schmidt Campaign. Again that’s according to the Illinois Board of Elections.Is Lake County serious? How do I get a piece of this action?

    I would recommend both. You could fly into Milan take the train to Venice, pick up a reantl car leaving Venice and drop it off when you arrive Rome. For visiting Florence enroute you can’t really drive in and park, most of Florence is limited to vehicles with permit only and there’s traffic cameras to catch the offenders. Best is probably staying somewhere on the outskirts of Florence along a train line and daytrip. For all the rest of traveling about the countryside in Italy is best done with a car, the roads are good, generally well marked, you won’t get lost but yes bring a good map. The Touring Club Italiano (TCI) regional maps are the best, you can order them online. Rental cars in Italy aren’t cheap, primarily because of the mandatory insurance. Many times its as much as the reantl itself. Gas is expensive though most reantl cars are very efficient. Tolls are expensive as well. Certainly driving is in no way an economical thing to do but the freedom of your own wheels outweighs cost for many.I would add that do not necessarily listen to those who tell you not to drive in Italy. It depends on the type of driver you are. I live in a major metropolitan area and am used to traffic, congestion, and people doing crazy stuff. Its no different in Italy other than the latter is practiced not just in major cities but done all over in rural areas as well. Passing up the middle with oncoming traffic and around blind corners, etc is commonplace. If you are used to driving in rural, quiet, well disciplined areas then you may find driving in Italy a frazzling experience. Its all relative.
