plan european adventures

18 March 2002

i’ve been looking for an online european driving directions site since the beginning of forever. i’m glad to have found one at last. i think the times it gives are decidedly dodgy since it seems to assume that you can always travel at 70mph, but the actual routes seem pretty sound on territory i know. i’m hoping it’s equally sound on unknown territory.

a useful feature for this kind of site would be the ability to search for hotels etc along the route as well as at the end of it. it’d be nice to see all the travelodge motel type of places about halfway from a to b, or to be able to find a nice place off the motorway to stop for lunch.

update: i’ve realised that the shell service discussed above is actually a branded version of maporama who provide the same directions coupled with a different set of services.
