I’ve spent a lot of time over the years reading and writing on forums, blogs, and tourism websites. I find there to be so many interesting and knowledgeable people out there exploring the world and taking the time to contribute to these websites. They’re a major part of what makes the travel community so unique and special.
After I relocated to Auckland, New Zealand for a new job back in February, I started to wonder whether there was anywhere for travelers, expats, backpackers, study abroad students, and vacationers to find local information while being in a new country. The forums, blogs, and tourism sites were all excellent resources for planning and research, but seemed to be missing…
1) A way for travelers to connect with others nearby
2) A place for travelers to share local information
3) An easy way to discover new places to go and things to do in your area
To solve this problem, a group of friends and I decided to start a notice board for travelers in New Zealand called HerePin - http://forum.herepin.com
We recognise that most people fly in and out of Auckland for all the obvious reasons, but very few take the time to stop and appreciate all the cool things the city has to offer. If any of you are in Auckland at the moment or going to be passing through anytime soon, we’d love to meet up and share some ideas of awesome things to do that are a little off the beaten path. Safe travels!
Hey, I am on business trip and while returning will be in Amsterdam Sep 18-20 (check out) ; well this will be my personal trip and not paid by company:) .
I was looking for someone who are travelling to join so that we can afford good place to stay at least and share the accommodation expense. I have seen some places on line but the cost is high, hence if someone is travelling on those dates we can get together and at least stay in better hotel near central station or centre of city. Looking forward for a companion. I understand the world is not that sweet however I am ok to share personal details and expect same if able to find someone.
We are planning a day trip to Da Nang tomorrow and would like to know a good shopping center to visit, not necessary though for souvenirs. We would then like to spend a couple of hours traveling around to see some of the city. What would be the best means of transport.
My daughter is flying in to Terminal 4 and then taking the Flight Connections free bus to Terminal 3 where her flight takes off 3 hours later. Am I right in assuming I will be able to meet her in Departures at T3 for a while before she then has to go back through security and flies back to the USA?
My daughter and my grandson will be taking the bus and train ( no car )from Kerteminde to Copenhagen airport in mid September. Their flight is in the early evening, so they will have time to stop on their way. They would like to visit a Viking site, since the Vikings are a big subject in Kindergarden right now.
We've read about the Viking ship in Kerteminde and of course about the National Museum in Copenhagen.Is there any other Viking site on the way from Kerteminde to Copenhagen? Maybe a outdoor museum like a Viking village?
I read about the Trelleborg Fortress, but it seems you nee a car to get there and it's only open for the festival.
Thank you for any information.
We will arrive in Ponta Delgada on a Monday afternoon, 15:15. We'd like to go right away to Pico, but can't seem to figure out how since the flights seem to leave earlier in the day. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide!
In the October I'll be in Iquitos. From there I'd like to get to Equador through Pantoja in Peru. So, could anyone tell me how often cargo boats leave from Iquitos to Pantoja? I've heard 3 times per month, but any schedule? And how long is the trip?
I have also some information about speed boat but the problem is the price, as some resource gave me the price 200$ (Lonely Planet for example) and the other 200 S (sol peruano), so the difference is huge... Any help from anyone? :)
At the end of November, from Colombia we'll get along the Carribean coast to Puerto Obaldia in Panama. From there I'd like to get to Carti or El Porvenir (or maybe there is different intesresting location there??). Could anyone tell me how often (if any) boats from Puerto Obaldia leaves to that direction? What can be the price of that journey? We're two people, so the cost is per person or per boat? There are a lot of different information in the net, different prices and most of them are quite old :)
We go to USA in Nov. But not sure what to do in ways of money. Will it be best to take all cash or some cash like 1/2 then the rest on card. I have a normal debit keycard plus also a commonwealth bank travel visa debit card.
Usually when we travel i take half cash and the rest on card. But i havent been to USA before and will be having a bit more money with me.
I'm planning on visiting Key West (for the first time) next April (4-8). Will there still be spring breakers around (college students)?
Wondering if anyone has experienced a river trip, probably from Bangkok to maybe north to Ayutthaya. I am not talking about the river cruises, which go to the same place. I am talking long tail, 2-3-4 day event. stop and stay along the way and back again. Hot all the places and markets, side trips etc...
Anyone ever done anything like this??? One of the big reasons I have not done this yet is all I can find are the expensive, touristy river cruises. That does not appeal to us at all. Been going to Thailand for over 35 years and it's about time I explored the river and it's many tributaries, like the old Thailand used to be.
Hi VTers, I'm finding it hard to research nice restaurants and bars to visit in Cascais. I'm looking for recommendations for a group of about 20 people to gather for a pre-wedding celebration. Ideally somewhere a little more upmarket without being crazy expensive and with a view for some food & nice drinks so maybe a terrace/patio/roof deck - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My next question is that it will be midweek, early September...is it typically quiet in this area midweek or still lively?
Thanks in advance! K.
Traveling to Chicago from Columbus Ohio with a 16 and 6 year old for Labor Day Weekend and looking for a suburb suggestion for safe, nice area to stay with about a half hour rail commute into the city? Thanks in advance for any suggestions :)
All the hotels around the Zimbabwe side are conveniently priced.
Is there a way to beat the trend? Maybe stay in a guest house in the city itself.
Hi may I know where is the best place to watch others bungy jump in Queenstown?
Hi, my boyfriend and I are from NYC and looking to vacation in Istanbul around the end of August. Some friends of ours say August is unbearable around this time of the year. Is it really that hot, or is it the humidity? Or both? Another important question, I am a slender tall female, (not very curvaceous) that likes to wear shorts or even skirts above the knee with tank tops exposing the arms when it's warm. I would describe my style as basic but elegant. Would this look still be distasteful or make locals feel uncomfortable? I am not at all familiar with their customs and don't want to be viewed as ignorant.
Thanks so much! Any other tips about customs would be greatly appreciated as well!
We are going to be in Dublin for 5 days in September. We are planning on doing a hop on and off bus tour on our first day; the second day a trip out of Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher; the 3rd day spent back in Dublin, 4th day another trip out to the countryside and the 5th day free to decide when we are there. We would like suggestions of anything you think are musts for us to see or do? We love the pictures of Kylemore Abbey and wondering if that trip would be good to take?
Any suggestions of tour companies for day trips?
Thanks in advance. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
hello I am travelling to Hurghada soon, will be staying for 2 weeks with wife and son.
could anyone give me a rough idea of spending money needed?
we are staying all inclusive but will not remain in the hotel for the full 2 weeks.
Also I understand that we can only take £5000 LE each in to the country so guessing the country is relatively cheap.
thanks for your time.
A friend and I are talking about going to Puerto Rico. He doesn't do well in the heat and sun, and he doesn't want to swim. He is not a shopper either. What are some fun activities that will make a three or four night trip worthwhile?
He loves music, especially blues, and he loves to dance, Latin, blues and freestyle.
Thank you for any input you can offer!!

How is the real estate in Monteverde? I have searched online and have not found a lot of real estate properties there? Where can I find out more information on that?
Do you know any route planner for the bus transportation inside Weimar city?
Do you know when the station does open?
After a lot more reading and research my plans have totally changed. I think I have covered all parts of Thailand in my head now. So Northern Thailand is where I want to explore in my little time in Thailand from October 5th to 23rd.
I am thinking of one night in Bangkok next night train to Chiang Mai. I don’t want to fly. I have picked out a couple more destinations Chiang Dao ,Chiang Rai, Fang + Tha Ton or Mae Salong then Chian Khong to cross the border and do some Zip lining then work my way back stopping once maybe on the way back somewhere like Nan. I have read up on these places. I hope the weather won’t be too bad.
I like the outdoors. It would be great to see the Mekong. In general, I would be happy to see some rural type areas with nice scenery lakes, rice paddies etc. Maybe meet some Village People the areas I have picked sounded like some of the areas where I might find some of them. What do ye think? Is it a workable itinerary? Only a Couple of nights in each place! Does it sound manageable?
Does anyone know a reliable site to book a night train to Chiang Mai from Bangkok On?
Can anyone give me info on the best violin stores in Milan please, thanks in advance.

Is it safe to drive and visit in Cannalonga, Campania, Italy?
This is in continuation to my earlier question answered by you. My airlines says that I need to check in the baggage again(though I will be having hand baggage only).
So the facts are that
1. I am Indian citizen having a valid canada visa
2. will need to change terminals 2 to 4 for taking the connecting air canada flight. (Air india and air canada flight tickets booked on same ticket with a time gap of 3 hrs)
3. Airlines say that I need to check in the baggage again (though I will be having hand baggage only).
So what do you suggest should I get the transit visa and which type
