Forty-five European cities, 14 days of driving and several months of sightseeing: That’s the optimised plan created by an algorithm, a followup to the data-driven perfect US road trip we saw earlier this month. Randal Olson used the same drive-time-minimising algorithm to compute this road trip, but based the cities on Business Insider’s selection of 50 must-see places in Europe.
Adventuring alone sounds exciting, but it’s also scary. Like most people, I’ve done the majority of my travelling with friends and family.
