    • Advice and an open invite

      Europe 29 minutes ago

      Hey guys,

      A little about me.. I am currently 23 working in London. I left school at 15 before finishing my exams with the view that I needed to be 'successful' at all costs. I started a company with a few hundred pound I had saved working in a local pub kitchen. A few businesses and jobs later I was fortunate enough to land a job earning over 70K+ a year...and I am leaving it behind.

      In the last 6/7 months I have realised that 'success' isn't about money, it's not about the car you drive or the clothes you wear. It's about enjoying your life and meeting great people along the way. I have traveled in the past, mainly weekends here and there (couldn't take a week off work) and love exploring different city's and cultures.

      I have just bought a 8 year old VW Passat (She's called Matilda)On the 1st January 2016 I will be jumping in my car and driving from London to Dover and across to France.

      From then on I will seeing how much of Europe I can see. Although I am putting together a loose plan I'm pretty open to where life takes me. I speak fluent Spanish & English (Although I am English it's hard to tell from my awful grammar)

      This is an open message to anybody that would like to tag along or meet me on my way around Europe. I'd love to speak to anybody with suggestions on good places to go and maybe a few idea's on the best hostel's etc.

      I have no plan, a diesel family car which is questionably reliable and some money saved.

      Let's the worst that can happen.

    • Turks & Caicos or not?

      Turks and Caicos Islands 6 hours ago

      My boyfriend and I (mid-30's)are looking for a fun all inclusive vacation that offers a variety of things to do, daily activities, shows, entertainment, excursions, etc..... Turks & Caicos is on his list but from what I am hearing, it doesn't have a lot of what we are looking for. We aren't looking for nightclubs or anything like that, but would enjoy dinner shows, live entertainment, swimming with aquatic life, jet skiing, maybe dune buggying, ziplining, etc.... Can anyone weigh in on whether or not Turks & Caicos has these things? Should we be looking elsewhere?

      old writers club in Little France

      Strasbourg 11 hours ago

      As you walk towards Little France ( from ? NW) and just before the half timbered houses begin there is a vegetarian olde worlde cafe. There were pictures of some famous writers on the wall of the stairway leading to an upper floor. Apparently some rich benefactor had put forward money for a writers club to have its meetings there. I think this was in the 1800s or early 1900s but could be earlier. I can't remember the name of the place or the full history. Anyone help?

    • Accommodation on Perhentian islands

      Malaysia 20 hours ago

      Hi all,
      We're a couple that has been around southeast asia backpacking for years, however we've been back in the UK for awhile so now when we're going back we'd like to relax a bit more. We have a tight budget as we've decided to go in to full-time studies as mature students so need any help available to find comfortable accommodation at a good price on the Perhenthian. We had our first valentine together on Kecil and want relive that feeling a bit but don't mind if it's there or on Besar. As we're going in high season this time we're not sure if we dare turning up without booking, first holiday in three years and sleeping under a tree does not sound ideal...

      We would appreciate any help, advice, recommendations and thoughts on if we'd be playing Russian roulette by not booking in advance

      Many Thanks

      Elin

    • Driving route to/from Bremerhaven (smaller roads from Westerdtede) & ferry or tunnel?

      Land Niedersachsen Yesterday

      MapQuest wanted to route me on autobans that appeared to take me a little out of the way, so I elected smaller roads for part of the route -- but I need local knowledge if this is a smart choice. Essentially from Westerstede to Bremerhaven I travel on smaller roads. Also I take the tunnel - should I opt for the ferry?
      Leaving - I go pretty much straight across to Gluckstadt - again smart move?

      Important information regarding using money in Greece

      Greece 5 hours ago

      a lot of visitors worry about the status of the ATM/cash situation. I'll try to keep them updated here on regular base.
      at the moment (june 30, 2015):
      -officially banks will be closed until monday 6 of july, but of course this could be extended
      -ATMs are fully fuctional, they work properly and when they get empty they refill them
      -greeks (actually those who have cards issued in greece) can withdraw 60e per card per day
      -visitors (those who have cards issued away from greece, hence every tourist) can withdraw with no limitations

      -we can still use our credit cards with no problem, all the stores that accepted cards in the past still do but obviously you'll need cash for smaller places (there was an issue with some gas stations yesterday that only cash was accepted) but have in mind credit cards are not so widespreaded in Greece (eg.you need cash for the acropolis) although most big hotels, many restaurants, super markets, car rental do accept like they always did

      -in some cases there are long lines at the ATMs, but I saw many others that didnt have more than 5-6 people waiting -transportation in athens is free this week

      -It's highly advisable to bring some cash with you to be on the safe side and/or avoid the long lines. You dont have to carry around the cash and be stressed, use the safety box in your hotel.
      -when I say cash I mean euros, this is the official currency so dont expect stores to get paid with dollars or anything else

    • Travelling to Algiers alone

      Algeria 10 hours ago

      Hey! Im planning in travelling to Algiers to meet my boyfriend (i know him well so thats not a concern). I am 18 and im going to stay at a hotel with my boyfriend (not the same room of course), we are not planning on going out too much, only in the day time and mainly just to buy food.

      Will it be safe? I feel like it will because its not like i'll ever be alone, but considering what just happened in Tunisia, and also in general since i am a girl and so young, what do you think? And if i go should i wear hijab just in case, or will it be fine as long as i cover my body well?

      Is Sharm safe (concerns after Tunisia attack)

      Hi, I am travelling to Sharm in 3 weeks with friends and our young children. We are staying at the Coral Sea Aqua resort and have been excited for some time. We are slightly concerned following Fridays horrible attack in Tunisia and are looking for some assurance that the area is safe. I understand that the hotel in Tunisia had a private beach and was frequently used by British tourists so although its is many miles away, is not dissimilar. I would never put my family at risk at any cost so hoping someone could assure us as to the safety measure of the hotel and resort.

The criterion is: reliable public transport connection (not once a day))) and the way shouldn't take more than 1 - 1,5 hours by train (bus) from (to) Spoleto. As i have made detailed search in internet already, I'd appreciate advices of people who had been there and able to base opinions on their own impressions:-) Thank you in advance, Elenasmiley

      Grexit - EU exit - validity of tickets, bookings , survival of businesses that we need to deal with

      Greece 18 hours ago

      The market is starting to assume the referendum next week will take Greece out of EU. If not the alternative sounds even worse.

      • Are banks prepared - will VISA be functioning as normal.
      • Will planes cross freely over borders - with fuel ?
      • Will Greek airlines be treated as solvent.
      • Will bank pressure on car rent companies not cause an asset freeze - or will the staff not start taking such assets to get it out bank hands ?
      • Will stores be stocked with enough food items
      • These questions seem simple and one would like to assume that a country with a long history will handle any problem without a blip. ? But maybe we are just to complacent and assuming that the authorities have prepared for every eventuality. History suggests that a little chaos will no doubt occur ???
      • Locals not allowed to move assets over borders ? Would they be considering exchanging their current money for gold ?
