      Most Recommended Hiking Trails?

      Waterton Lakes National Park Yesterday

      Hi there, I was wondering what are the most recommended hiking trails in Waterton Lakes NP, (let's say for July through September)--particularly, I was thinking in terms of the most scenic views and/or the safest (in terms of having a good flow of other hikers at this time of year & not isolated) trails.

      Thanks, Joe

    • Best Cell / Mobile Phone to use in Banff / Sunshine / Lake Louise area of Canada

      Banff May 15, 2015 at 2:45 AM

      I will be in the Banff area for a number of months and would like some advice on what is the most cost effective and useful cell / mobile service provider to use. My uk issued smartphone is quad band so should work for calls but the 3G frequency will be wrong for internet service. Internet service in Canada seems relatively expensive compared to UK so I am wondering if it would be better to use wifi hotspots where possible. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Are there any good coffee shops in Fort Lauderdale other than Starbucks?

      Fort Lauderdale May 7, 2015 at 1:30 PM

      Hello,

      I am from Tampa and will be heading to Fort Lauderdale in a couple of weeks. I usually enjoy independent coffee shops that offer fresh roasted small batch coffee brewed through a French press. I have done some research on yelp and came up with a few local places. If anyone else knows of a good spot please let me know. Here is what I found:

      Sip Java Co - (formally Brew Urban Café) @ 638 N Federal Highway Fort Lauderdale FL. I heard that they carry Intelligentsia, Anodyne and Wells Coffee (all small roasted batches from around the world and you can brew them with a few different methods). Free wifi and good snacks or all day food offerings, tons of seating indoors and outdoors. Very quiet with free parking out front.

      Brew Urban Café - 537 NW 1st Avenue in the art district. They are located in an art studio called C&I studios. Quiet and good locally roasted coffee too.

      Warsaw Coffee Company - 245 E 13th St Fort Lauderdale FL. New coffee shop with lots of seating. They also offer locally roasted coffee from Argyle and have a bakery which pumps out some original and unique pastries. A little more on the pricey side of things and parking is limited.

      The Alchemist - They are located in Wilton Manors which is about a 15 minute drive from Fort Lauderdale. They have a good variety of coffee and pump out some good sandwiches.

      These are some of the best places to enjoy coffee. If you all have any additional info please reply!

    • Travelling from LAX to San Diego at night!

      San Diego May 25, 2015 at 7:12 AM

      Hello,

      Would anyone be able to give some advice? Two 22 year old Irish students are heading for Lucky D's hostel on 8th Ave, San Diego on a Monday night. Our flight is scheduled to arrive in LAX (Terminal 2) at 19.15. We want to get to our hostel in the cheapest way possible, we have already told them we will most likely arrive late at night.

      Our plan so far was to get a Fly Away shuttle bus from the airport to Union Station in LA.

      If we arrive on time we could get the Amtrak train to Old Town San Diego, the last service leaves at 10.10pm. According to google maps it is about a 10 minute drive from the Old Town train station to our hostel, so we would get a cab. However, this is more expensive than a bus, it costs 74 dollars for 2 tickets, whereas the greyhound bus is under 30 dollars for two tickets! Ideally we would like to get the bus, but are having problems with the greyhound website - we can't figure out which stations in LA/ San Diego the LA to San Diego service serves! As in we're not sure which bus station to catch the bus at in LA, or where it will stop in San Diego.

      If getting the bus, we would get a cab from Union Station to the Greyhound bus station in LA. I think the closest one is on East 7th street? And then get the greyhound express bus to San Diego at 11pm. It is hard to tell from the Greyhound website which bus station the service goes to, has anybody taken this route before? Ideally we want to end up at the bus station on 1313 National Ave, San Diego, as this is only a 15 min walk or 5 min cab ride from our hostel.

      We have never travelled in America before so are very unfamiliar with the transport system. Any advice would be appreciated regarding which bus stations the Greyhound bus stops at in LA and in San Diego, and how easy/safe getting the bus is. Finally, anybody who has flown to LAX and gotten a Flyaway shuttle bus to Union station - how easy is it to find the Fly Away bus terminal? We are flying to Terminal 2!

      Thank you :)

    • Where do I leave my clothes when going to the wreck beach

      Vancouver May 24, 2015 at 1:34 AM

      hi, this is a question that came to my head and I was surprised that no website answers the question of where to put the clothes when on the wreck beach. I haven't been to the Wreck beach before. I plan to visit there soon next month and stroll the beach in the nude. If I drive, is it fine to leave them in the car and be naked during the walk to the beach? What do folks who take the public transport do? Are there lockers to rent? Should I be worried that they can get stolen if I just leave them on the beach and stroll from end to end?

      May be I am concerned over nothing and there may a practical solution to it but I rather be prepared than sorry.

      Thank you,
      Annie

      Memphis May 20, 2015 at 11:23 AM

      I dont know if my last text appeared or not, cant find it. I considered visiting memphis but now reading about the crime, some one asked Sun records could they walk around there at night, their reply, not unless you have a hang gun. most of us Londoners dont even own a gun, let alone knowing how to even us or load one up. reading about Graceland also being unsafe I was taken back. When I visited Florida years ago Orlando it was safe there and the part we were in crime seemed very low. about the same as London I guess. If Memphis is heavily policed as I read I would have thought it to be safe then, unless certain roads are left out. We have beggers and drug addicts in London but they are not running around with guns and rarely do we get shootings here. I wanted to visit memphis some time for the music. Now I feel that I would be extremely naive going there not knowing what to expect.

      It looks like the northern most point on the road (a badly weathered sign frame sits at the end of the road) is about 10 miles away from the airport. If I go in July can I walk there? I heard taxis are sketchy at best. Rental cars are nearly impossible to get. I've already inquired into 2016 with few available. I guess my only concern besides weather would be wildlife? If anyone could shed any light on this is,it would be greatly appreciated!

      Transportation South Beach to Miami Seaquarium?

      Miami May 19, 2015 at 4:57 PM

      I will be staying in South Beach Miami next Friday and Saturday morning. Originally I was planning on just hanging out at the beach, Lincoln Road Mall, Ocean Drive, etc. but now I think a change of pace might be nice. I was doing some reading and I'm thinking about visiting Miami Seaquarium. I know there are some mixed reviews of the place, but I think it's mostly from people comparing it to SeaWorld and I haven't been anywhere like that before so I think I'll enjoy it. :)

      The problem is it /is/ a little expensive at $42/ticket, so I'm only going to do it if there's a cheaper public transportation option I can take there. It looks like a cab ride would be $24-30 each way and I'd rather not make this a $100 excursion. Is there like a bus route or something I could take? If so, how much would it cost and how long would it take? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
