Journeying back to Ume

Here's a map of my planned trip back to Umeå to see the degree show and talks at the Design Institute. It's been three years since I left the Introduction to Industrial Design (IID) course, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see the graduation work of my far more talented class mates and friends who stayed on for their Masters courses.

I just though I'd share my planning map since I've tried to follow a more interesting route than just flying direct. This was partly due taking the train is greener, but mainly because this journey seemed so much cooler & interesting (anything to not use Ryanair again :). Hopefully I'll feel the same way after all the hours on the tracks.

I managed to fit in a trip to Twickenham on the way, just couldn't pass up a chance to see the IRB Sevens tournament. Hopefully Wales will do me proud - annoyingly I couldn't make the first competition day (especially since so many friends will be there then) but hopefully Wales will get through in the main competition on Sunday. It would be so annoying to be stuck there alone with smug English people all around if that didn't happen!

Hopefully I can put my neat new camera into good use and post plenty of pics along the way. I'll have no excuse to get plenty of reading done either.

Ps. Thanks to 'The Man in Seat 61' for the much needed travel advice.
