My husband and I are arriving into Edinburgh on July 8th. We spend 2 nights there - and then rent a car and the plan is to drive to Skye on the 10th. We have 3 nights booked in Skye at the Rowan Cottage Tree House. We then have a flight out from Inverness to London on the 13th at 2PM.
My question is do you think we should do 3 nights in Skye or should we spend the last night in Inverness since we have a flight out from there on the 13th afternoon.
Also any suggestions on good routes from Edinburgh to Skye and any recommendations for what distilleries to visit perhaps on the way to Skye? My husband really enjoys Scotch where as I can be the designated driver.
Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!
Flying into Heathrow in early October for a 14-day roundtrip cruise from Southampton. My friend and I will need a good decently priced hotel for a night or two and also a good transportation company to and from Heathrow to Southampton and return trip.
Has anyone ever rented a economy car in Dublin, Ireland? I have checked some of the rental companies but they come up with such ridiculous rental fees that I can't take them serious. Can you believe 5 or 6,7. or 8 euros a day.
Let me know if these rental companies are correct, that is if you have any information, please fill me in.
When I applied for a Schengen visa in India, I was told I had to apply from the US since I had been living in the US for over 6 months and was in India for only 2 months. Now I am in the US for over 8 months, will be going to India in July and would like to apply for a UK visa, stopping at London for a week.
Can I apply for the UK visa in USA (because I am a Permanent Resident of USA) or must I compulsorily apply from India as I have an Indian Passport?
Hello VTers - it's been a while!
I'm beginning to plan our first adventure for 2 years and I'm so excited that the choice seems quite overwhelming!
It's just a 3-weeker, but I want an exciting, varied and beautiful itinerary.
We want to visit somewhere new and I'm looking for help with ideas.
Currently, Israel & Rwanda are top runners, but Mongolia was a hot favourite for a while, but was dropped because I decided we'd need longer than 3 weeks.
I love rivers and jungle. I like to walk. My favourite countries are Turkey and Nepal.
I love little, beautiful lodges without electricity sat in the middle of nowhere.
I like to cross borders by land.
Could anyone please give me some ideas for itineraries for Rwanda, Israel or share your favourite travel adventure if it sounds like it might fit the bill? I'm looking for inspiration!
Big thanks and happy travels :-)

Tossing around the idea of picking up a pair of tickets to the Monty Python show at the O2 in July, most probably on the 20th. My son (27) and I (57) would be attending together, and spending 4 or 5 days in London, arriving by air to either Heathrow or Gatwick. Looking for suggestions for accommodations - easy access from/to the airport would be nice, easy access to the O2 (tube okay) even better; room doesn't need to be 5 star, just clean and safe - hotel, hostel, b&b all okay. Thanks!
44 years ago when I was 9 I lived in Cockfosters and was taken out for the day with my neighbours family to Hemel. After about 10 miles driving (I think I was told it was 10 miles at the time) we turned right, and immediately over a little bridge across a canal where some canal boats were tied up to the right. In front of us was a massive gravel car park, on the left of which was a large public house or café. That's all I remember. There were a lot of young hippies hanging around with motorbikes. My friends dad went home to get the spare car key as he had locked them in the car. While he was away the hippies helped us to get back in the car with a wire coat hanger, so we sat by the river and waited for the dad to return. He was fuming that he had gone 10 miles home on a bus for nothing! We had a lovely day by the river though. Can't find it on a map now, and I live in Hull but am coming to the area in few weeks and thought I might take a look there.
Me and my wife are looking for our first vacation in London at the start of may.
We are currently debating on how long should the trip be, and what should we expect the daily expenses to be about (so we can see how much the trip will approximately cost us).
Currently, the flight will cost about 1500$ - 1700$ (i need extra room for my legs).
The hotel is about 255$ per night (it's near the London bridge area and has an 8.8 booking rating), and that was the cheapest i found for may that is in the city and has good reviews.
The trip is somewhere between 3.5 to 7 full days (excluding flights).
Our main concern is the price and length of the trip. We would like the trip to be:
a. not running around all day long.
b. to get a good feel of London. (i.e. we would like to walk in the parks, weather permitting, go to 1 or 2 theater plays and we like some culture and museums but not artsy fartsy ones)
c. not go overboard spending-wise. (yet not skimp on essential parts of the experience).
d. hopefully enjoy just the right amount of time :)
Would love to hear your input.
I'm looking at the logistics for a Harwich - Copenhagen cruise. It's been some time since I've been in London, but never found the trains too difficult. Any suggestions my thoughts of staying a few days in London, then taking the train to Harwich in the AM to board the ship? Or would it be better to travel the day before and overnight in Harwich just to be on the safe side of the trip?
At the end I'm debating on taking Easyjet (or other) from Copenhagen back to London to attempt at some round trip savings on air fare from SAN in the US as opposed to two one-way trips. Thoughts from those that travel Europe frequently?
I thought i would explore my neighbourhood as a tourist desination, not the big city that is London, but that smaller univers called Finchley, have others tried this? What do people think of my efforts?
