Hints for travel planning

Between US and Debconf:

  • Kayak finds quite cheap Iceland Express flights, BOS to SXF, departing Wed Jul 20
  • I can get to Paris for the same price
  • It's $100ish by train to get to Marseille, about 3.5h on TGV
  • To get to Debconf, I could (?)

Between Debconf and Berlin:

  • Germany is geographically between Debconf and Western Europe, so it doesn't make oodles of sense to go somewhere on Western Europe in between

About Marseille

  • Easy to get there from Prague, supposedly
