Perfect notebook for travellers

ACER   Aspire 1410

If I’d travel a lot I’d buy the ACER Aspire 1410 notebook. It looks like netbook and costs the same. But instead of Atom processor it’s equiped with stronger Intel Celeron. The rest spec includes 11.6-inch LCD display with 1366 x 768 resolution, GMA 4500MHD graphics, a 6-cell battery, 250 GB hard drive, and up to 4GB of RAM. The Acer Aspire 1410 offers a bunch of communication options – 802.11b/g/Draft-N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet. Additionally it sports HDMI out (can be connected to the TV in hotel), integrated webcam (video chat with family, relatives and friends), 5-in-1 card reader and Dolby-optimized surround sound system with two built-in stereo speakers (have relax after meeting). It just misses optical drive but it isn’t so big deal I think.

The wight of the the Acer Aspire 1410 is just 1.35 kg, battery life is up to 6 hours and the price is €383. All of this makes that notebook the perfect choice for web workers who should travel a lot.

Trip to Italy

View Larger Map

At the beginning of that month we had a vacation in Italy. It was really nice trip. We flew to Roma at 4th August and stayed there three nights. During that time we visited Pompei, Napoli and had full day in Rome. After that we went to Florence and passed Siena and Pisa. Next day we spent in beautiful Florence and next morning we went to Venice. On that way we visited Sirmione and the place where lived Romeo and Juliet Verona. The last day we walked in small city Padua near Venice and at the evening flew back to Larnaca.

For the 8 days we passed about 1500 kilometers! Sure we tired a bit but the we enjoyed the trip very much. Italy is a beautiful place. There are a lot of amazing, legendary places. But Venice is something special! I cannot describe our filling when we walked there or glided in a gondola. It was like a dream. We’d like to return back and spend more time in Rome and Venice.

We made about 1000 photos during our trip. So, I need a time to process them. After that I’ll upload to Picasa the best ones.

Came back from London

Yesterday we came back from our four days holiday in London. We had amazing time. Big Ben, The Houses Of Parliament, London Eye, Tower Bridge … We walked by morning London and saw Buckingham palace without crowd surrounded it. The St James park is also amazing in the morning time.

The weather was nice – it was sunny for two days and just a bit raining in the third day of our holiday. We took a bus excursion around city center and boated by Thames. And walked, walked and walked. We’re tired a bit but we got a lot of impressions. Sure, we make a lot of shots. I need a time to process them and upload to web.
