[Debconf-discuss] Trains to Debconf from Munich, Koeln, Paris, London, Cambridge

This is a reminder about booking horizons.  It is much better to book
trains immediately when the bookings open.

If you are intending to travel out by train you should be thinking
about confirming your plans now.  

It would be very helpful if locals or DC organisers could confirm that
it will be reasonably possible to get from Zagreb to Banja Luka if
arriving on the sleeper at 08:40 on Saturday morning.

It would also be helpful if the DC organisers could confirm what
arrangements might be available to travel from Banja Luka to either
Zagreb or Okucani on the 31st of July.

I am willing to book for others for the return trains marked ***
above.  See http://wiki.earth.li/DebconfTravel2011/Train for my
planned itinerary.  (I'll be on my own for the outward journey.)

If you would like me to book you a ticket on those trains please let
me know by Monday 25th April (to give time for me to confirm and ask
you any questions).

So far I have one person (Joachim Breitner) who would like a place on
the sleeper from Zagreb to Munich, departing 20:09 from Zagreb on
Sunday.  Depending on consultations with the railway, and with DC
locals, we may travel from Okucani instead.

[0] It is wise to book the Eurostar at the same time as the other
tickets, in case of timetable changes.
