Here’s a video I put together — mostly for my family and close in-person friends — but thought I’d go ahead and post it on the blog. Plus, there is at least a reference to “Primal driving.” It was created from about a half dozen clips my wife took with the iPhone while on the drive from Rome to Monterosso totaling 18 minutes, which I combined and edited down to about 9. It was done 100% on the new iPhone 4 — video, editing and publishing to YouTube — using the $5 iMovie app. rudimentary capabilities, but for a phone, pretty impressive in my book.
Another reason to toss it up is perhaps to encourage world travel in general for those who haven’t, yet, and to really get in there and travel, and to do so by car when you can. Trains are fine for getting from A to B, but with a car you can get to and see many surprising places off the beaten path that you might not otherwise see.
I should also probably mention that I wasn’t being snobby in the video when I mentioned not being able to get 1st class seats on the train, in case anyone is unaware. 1st class is just a small supplemental charge on the trains in Europe, like 10E, not multiples of the regular price such as the airlines.
