    ...you mean you're sitting in a traffic jam WITHOUT a single guitar?

    Sitting on a train on the way to the airport. Without a single guitar.

    I've considered a travel guitar but it's quite a lot of money...

    Thanks!

    Nope, right smack in the middle of Germany. Within spitting distance of the Thomann warehouse. I've been there many times before but never had a chance to visit the place. Maybe this time...

    Personal observation only...
    In my mind...
    Being in Europe is cool...
    Because
    In a week end you can travel to two or three countries...
    Here
    the same mileage would only get me to
    Guitar center
    And
    Home Depot..

    That depends...

    I've had quite a few pleasant road trips on warm Sunday afternoons after a late breakfast, following roof blowing Saturday night gigs.

    Yep. Sweden is about the size of California with a population slightly larger than that in NY.

    Transport strikes have grounded me today. I was supposed to go see Mark Lanegan in Paris but no trains, and traffic jams, not to mention trying to park in Pigalle, kept me home.

    That sucks :(

    I think I have been to almost every European country but I've somehow missed all the major capitals. I've never been to Paris, London or Berlin. I'm thinking about taking the family to Paris towards the spring when I turn 40 :eek: I have this romantic idea of Paris in spring time and figured I'd be allowed to choose destination, given the occassion.

    No. What's the point in bringing a can when there's no customs to check you? It'd be so great if they opened a can :D

    It's Germans we're talking about, I bet they wouldn't mind it.
