Ultimate-European-Road-Trip-1

Dr. Randall S. Olson is a Senior Data Scientist at the University of Pennsylvania Institute for Biomedical Informatics with a passion for all things data. He’s used this love to compute optimal road trips. Already done is the best drives in the USA, and now you can check out his latest creation—the ultimate European road trip. Olson’s road trip across Europe covered more than 16,000 miles of pavement through Austria, Germany, Croatia, Italy, Malta, Croatia, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Poland, Denmark and a good portion of the rest of Western and Central Europe. The itinerary was built to check off as many locations as possible from the Business Insider “50 Places In Europe You Need to Visit In Your Lifetime” list, so expect to dedicate at least three months to the total trip because it includes a solid two weeks of driving. Olson also put the code up with an open source license so you can customize your trip as you see fit.

Forget plastic building bricks that can only be used with specific mats and upgrade your conference call and boring meeting building with this 1:12 scale mini cinder block pallet set. With 24 miniature cinder blocks and one pallet per set, this has everything you need to build a great foundation for the big box creation of your dreams. Whether you’re making a small creation of your own devising with the 24 pieces that come with it, or adding multiples to build something more grandiose, this is the best way to build when you’re not using plastic.
