I was roaming around the Eurail website the other day and found a recommendation for a telephone. The company, Call in Europe, is located on the East Coast. Their phones are pretty affordable and the cost-per-minute is the lowest I've seen. So now I've got a phone and a mini-PC. I feel like I'm pretty well connected, and plan to call Jennifer, my kids and some other friends from Europe as I wander around the continent.
A friend of mine is going to France later this year and bought a Lingo language translator. I happened to see it work and decided to get one myself. So, it was off to Amazon.com for a quick look. I've gotten that in the mail also and have practiced with it a bit. I think it'll help me get around. It covers 5 language (English, Spanish, French, Italian and German) and will "talk" for me!! How's that for cool?
Well, that about it for now. More later....
