well, it’s done! the eurail saver pass is on its way. five countries 8 days of travel and many reservations to go. some of the trip will depend on bargains as we go; short rail trips bought at the counter.
at 7 p.m. today the euro was at $1.53 which is a decent drop, considering it was pushing past $1.60 a few weeks back. i was beginning to worry that the price of the rail pass would go up to match the rising cost of fuel, though most of europe runs on nuclear power or hydro…you never know, so i plunged.
