A number of us are heading to PETS (July 11–13, 2012 in Vigo, Spain) after the summer development meeting. The rough plan is below.

  • July 7th - relax and travel to the country home of a friendly Italian hacker.
  • July 8th - social time, hacking, relaxing.
  • July 9th - take a train to Vigo, Spain for PETS at a leisurely pace.
  • July 10th - arrive in Spain and find our way to Vigo.
  • July 11th - Attend PETS on time, relaxed and overjoyed.

If you'd like to join us - please put your name below:

hellais home travel details

I will come down by car and pick up a maximum of 3-4 people (depending on luggage size), the rest can take the train.

The closest train station is S. Piero a Sieve

Once you arrive in that station it takes 15 minutes by car to reach the house. We have two cars and we can organize to come and pick people up.

The exact geocordinates will be provided upon request.


Update 2012-09-21: Since the train seems too painful, some people are considering finding a flight instead. Flying out of Florence on the 9th (Monday) has been mentioned.

  • TAP (Portuguese) is flying FCO-OPO at noon every day (~200 euro) but the 9th is "almost fully booked". 8th and 10th have more seats.
