Poll : A Dilemma

As we’re heading to Krakow, we have the opportunity to visit Auschwitz, something that any right minded person should consider. It’s something I think everyone should experience if they get the chance.

Thing is, well, I’ll let the¬†Auschwitz website describe the dilemma:

3. On the Museum grounds, visitors should behave with the appropriate solemnity and respect. Dress should be appropriate for a place of this nature.

Which, of course, is entirely appropriate.

The question is, does turning up in a 2 tonne lego brick constitute behaviour of solemnity and respect? Obviously, we’d mean no disrespect by doing so and our own dress would be sombre as befitting our age and general dullness – but what about the car?

You will notice a wee poll on the right of the page, we seek your thoughts!

The Start Approaches

Not long until we leave for Budapest now. A few points to note.

We’ll keep the Trackr going as much as we can – but data roaming ain’t what it should be – we hope to be wi-fi’d up in the car if we can get a good deal on a SIM.

We’ll post here and also tweet from @teamgi but things have moved on a lot since we last did this and we all have a lot more individual Twitter followers than the team twitter account (except Dougie, he’s pants) so we may tweet from our own accounts too as more people will see the tweets, they are:

Scott: @scottmliddell

David: @gordonwd

Andrew: @aigwilson

Dougie: @dougier

Similarly, there is a team Foursquare account but we may just use our own accounts.

Also, with photos, it’s not quite as easy to get them embedded in posts as it was previously (although we should manage). We’ll use our PicPlz accounts quite a bit, so keep checking the Latest Photos page for those.

The Name of the Car – Revealed!

Yes, the car is called Bricktop. As a tribute to everyone’s favourite gangster and for reasons that will become apparent in due course.

It may also be related to the fact that we were watching this video while booking our travel. Caution : contains *very* strong NSFW language.
