Trip Plans

We leave this Friday for Europe!  We’ll be in Eindhoven, The Netherlands from Sunday June 23 to Tuesday July 2 for Robocup 2013.  Katie’s team, Austin Villa, will be defending their 1st place finish from Robocup 2012 in the standard platform league.

The we’ll spend July 2nd and 3rd in Amsterdam before taking an overnight train to Prague.  We’ll spend three days in Prague, including a day trip to Karlstejn Castle and Svaty Jan Pod Skalou.  Then we’ll spend a day hiking in Saxon Switzerland National Park before seeing Dresden (and maybe Leipzig) on the way to Berlin.  We’ll spend two full days in Berlin before taking a night train to Munich.  We’ll spend 2.5 days in Munich, including a day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle and Fussen as well as a half-day trip to Dachau.  Finally, we’ll travel up to Dortmund to pick up our robots, and we’ll depart out of Dusseldorf.  However, before making our way back home, we’ll enjoy a 14.5 hour layover in Istanbul, Turkey.
