10 days, 3 cities, 4 talks, 6 flights and 6 hotels

I’m off today for Europe, on the longest trip I’ve taken for Red Gate. It’s stretching me a bit, but it should be fun. It will be a whirlwind as well. I’m flying to London (2 flights) and then driving to Cambridge for a couple days (1 hotel) at the Red Gate office. Then I head back down to London on a bus for SQL Bits (3 days, 2 hotels).

On Saturday, I return to Heathrow (1 hotel) as I have an early Sunday flight (1 plane) to Dublin. There I get a day off, and I booked my hotel (1 hotel) near some of Dublin’s sights. I’m hoping for good weather to rent a bike and wander around. It’s only one day, and them I move (1 hotel) near the DLM Workshop seminar that I’ll be delivering in Dublin on Tuesday, along with a visit to the user group there.

Then I head back to London (1 flight) early Wednesday morning, changing planes and heading back to the US (2 flights) and home.

It’s a bit of a crazy trip, and with my costume for the event at SQL Bits, I’ll be checking a larger bag than I ‘m usually do.

I’m looking forward to it, and while I’m sure I’ll be tired, it will be great to see so many #sqlfamily in the UK.

    I’m thinking of visiting my relatives in Europe for the first time in over 5 years. How much are the tickets these days?

      Prices vary dramatically, depending on when you fly. When I have to go in the summer, tickets are usually $2k+. However if I can move times to spring/fall, I’ve gotten tickets at, or slightly below, $1k.

      Might to better looking for deals, especially if you can be flexible on dates/times.
