Well Mrs K and I are back from our Grand Tour and before plunging back into my virtual travels I thought I'd share a few piccies with you.
Our first stop was at Arras, in Northern France:
We then moved on to Colmar, in Alsace:
The building in the middle, Le Maison Des Tetes, was our hotel for the night. Cool, huh?
We then drove across Germany and into the Czech Republic, and Cesky Krumlov, a little jewel of a place:
On the return leg we stayed overnight in a charming hotel, the oddly named Palmspring, in the back of beyond in the Black Forest - where it rained:
Our final overnight stop was Bruges (or Brugge, depending on your point of view):
A hectic week: 2250 miles; 43hrs actually spent on the road... but it was great fun, and we saw some amazing places.
And in other news... I picked up a snippet on the IBM Second Life guidelines:
...restrictions could come in the form of such guidelines as the one IBM has put in place for its employees utilizing Second Life. The Associated Press story said that employees do not have an online dress code, but must be “especially sensitive to the appropriateness of your avatar or persona’s appearance when you are meeting with IBM clients or conducting IBM business.”
According to the story, IBM also states that “dramatically altering, splitting, or abandoning your digital persona may be a violation of…trust… In the case of a digital persona used for IBM business purposes, it may violate your obligations to IBM.”
And am left to consider: "What does this mean for my chum, Epredator Potato?"
UPDATE: Epredator has provided some interesting comments to this post. For information, here is the link to the IBM guidelines webpage.
