To Italy for gaming - here's what happened.
This year, things were different. Since my family is currently traveling, I seized the opportunity and took a week of vacation, so I could travel further south and see some more of Italy than the partly German speaking part in the north. Ever since high school (about 25 years ago), when my ingenious arts teacher had shown me slides of a certain church interior in Rome, I had wanted to go and see it in person - but my wife had been to Rome before she had met me, so when thinking about traveling, we had chosen different destinations. But this time I was going to go!
Some Italian friends helped me book some train tickets within Italy, plus some cheap accomodation. ArtMaySound was going to be on the 9th/10th/11th of May, so my plan was roughly like this:
4th: Göttingen - Bolzano (eight hour trip, dropping off my gaming suitcase so I could go on with only light luggage)
5th: Bolzano - Rome (4.5 hour ride in the early morning). Two days of sightseeing!
7th: Rome - Verona (3 hour ride in the morning) A day and a half of wandering around.
8th: Verona - Bolzano (1.5 hour ride in the evening) Back in time for the festival
9th-11th: Bolzano (Selling games to tourists, plus some fun with friends in the evenings)
12th: Bolzano - Göttingen (eight hours, starting around noon).
Places to see? Plenty.
But what to do in the evenings? I am not the kind of person to enjoy sitting around in a cafe alone, staring into my coffee (I don't even like coffee). So I had to find people for gaming... so I wrote this thread: Two nights in Rome, one in Verona - anyone want to play with me?. I had some friendly replies, so it looked like I was all set.
And here's what happened...
