This spring Cynthia and I are going to Europe for 3 weeks.

We fly into Amsterdam for a few days before catching a train to Bruges, Belgium. From there we move on to Paris for four days. Then it’s the overnight sleeper train to Venice. From there on to Florence and exit via Rome.

The planning has gone well. We have plane tickets, rail passes and accommodations in each city.

What’s killing me right now is a solution for digital picture storage. 3 weeks of pictures is going to take up a lot of space. I won’t be bringing a laptop as we want to travel very light.

I am exploring card readers. Looks like $200 will get me a 20 gig device and that should be plenty. There are several brands out there so I need to do my research.

    That sounds really exciting! Alex and I have a planned a three week visit to Europe, too… maybe around late July. I use a Nikon 5400 and would love to hear what card reader you end up choosing (if I remember right, yours is a Nikon8500?). I have two memory cards of 512 MB each, but I fill them quite easily within 10 days or so while on vacation. So, I have been thinking of buying something for photo storage, too.

    I have the Sony DSC F828 camera. It’s not a full on SLR but it’s close.
    Keep an eye on this blog to see what I come up with.

    Where are you going when you go to Europe?

    We’re just doing Paris and London. I have visited both, Alex has visited neither. So, a ten day stay in Paris, then the Eurostar to London, where we stay another ten days. Very exciting!

    Awesome! Our trip to the UK two years ago was amazing.

    This one has us quite excited.
