Today's volcanic ash forecast is giving me hope that we might actually make it to Europe tomorrow. Thank you all for the comments, thoughts, prayers, fairy dust, etc. that we'll make it! Yay!
In preparation for our Europe Trip we made one big purchase...
That's right, an iPad.
Now I know there are a lot of iPad haters out there, and some of their points are valid, but for a two week trip to Europe I couldn't imagine a better device. It's size, weight (~1 lb), and usability make it the ultimate travel tool.
In fact, this will be the only technology that we'll be using for two weeks -- we're not bringing laptops or cell phones, just an iPad. So after we get back, I'll give a full review of how we survived on it for two weeks.
We should have free wi-fi in most of the hotels we're staying at -- so I may even do some Twitter and Blog updates via the iPad. And if a volcano erupts again, I may be working from the iPad if we're stuck in Europe (but hopefully not).
Are there any other iPad users out there? Are there any iPad apps that you think we should get for our trip?
