Then, in May, we’re taking in the London sights including a trip on the Eye, views from the Shard, the London Dungeon and a show, namely Les Miserable. Then it’s a hop onto a plane and a week in Lake Como, Italy.
The Italian trip will include a lot of sightseeing as well and I’m particularly looking forward to the Bernina Express trip into the Swiss mountains because the views should be pretty spectacular. So, in order to record all this and hopefully produce a couple of tour guides I’m taking enough camera gear to sink a ship and a notebook and pen to record my thoughts… well, actually, I’m going to try and go a little more hi-tech than just pen and paper. I’m going to use Google Voice Typing on my mobile phone. So far my experiments have been quite good. The app has recognised “good morning” and an inadvertent “do you want a cup of tea” as my wife woke up mid-tinkering with the app. Pretty good for a first attempt.
If the resulting guides are full of yoodling & cows mooing, you’ll know I’m in the Swiss alps. If the guide is full of shrieks and swearing then it’s Australia and I’ve seen a big spider!
Isn’t technology wonderful?
