    It’s all Greek to me

    by  • 5 January, 2003 • Travel • 0 Comments

    The grounds on which the boat terminal is located had a definite Greek look to it already. I couldn’t see the boats from the road. There was no indication that I was indeed at the passengers ferry terminal. The roads on the grounds were full of holes, now filled with water. I could see...

    Coldrerio to Venice

    by  • 5 January, 2003 • Travel • 0 Comments

    Sunday morning woke me up at the break of day. There was something rattling in the hallway just outside my room. It turned out to be an open window which was being swung open and shut by the blizzard that was targeting the motel with snow and hail. The thick carpet in the hallway...

    Pas à pas, on va loin

    From Bilzen to Luxemburg was easy enough, the road was clear and dry and the outside temperature was around zero degrees centigrade at 8 o’clock in the morning when I left our house. Approaching Luxemburg, snow started to fall, very lightly at first, then as Metz came closer, the snow got thicker. I never...

    This is it. I’m al set to leave. Well, I think I am. At least I am as set as I can be. Let’s just say that this is the settest I will ever be. This means that in a few moments I will disconnect my laptop, pack it and store it in the...

    Countdown has started

    by  • 2 January, 2003 • Travel • 0 Comments

    Less than 24 hours before the train leaves the station. I do not exactly have the feeling that I’m fully prepared, what with a whole list of people I still have to contact, my stuff (laptop, camera, scanner, and the assorted cables that go with that, let’s not forget the cables!) still largely unpacked,...

    A picture worth a thousand words

    Don’t worry, I’m not trying to sell you these tires. I just happen to have a picture of them on my desktop, and it as good as any other picture to test this feature in MovableType. After all you do want to see pictures once I’m started on my trip, don’t you? For now,...

    It’s all in the box

    by  • 30 December, 2002 • Travel • 0 Comments

    Today was spent running around the house and measuring things up. The point came up because Yvonne and I realized that sooner or later we had to arrange for transport of our possessions to Iraklio. When moving stuff across two seas, one had better plan these things a bit more carefully. Fortunately we never...

    The problem with standards…

    by  • 28 December, 2002 • Tech • 1 Comment

    … is that there are so many. Take for example HTML. Boy, I’ve been strugling with getting my blog page (Cretan Chronicles) present itself nicely in the same way as my main entry page, but unsuccessfully so far. The problem is that the graphics in the main page still rely heavily on tables for...

    If you’ve come here, you probably read my last entry in Radio Userland’s blog. From now on this will be the place were we will chronicle our adventures in Crete. I still have some work to do to bring the layout of this section in line with the main layout, but I’ll figure that...
