    • End of June - July

      New York City Sep 22, 2015 at 12:56 AM

    • 3 days in or near Athens. What to d?

      Greece Sep 24, 2015 at 10:47 AM

      Our cruise ends in Athens on 10/13 this year. We were in Athens for one day several years ago and obviously visited Acropolis. We also took a city tour but it did not impress us at all.
      We also visited Santorini and Kusadasi (Ephesus).
      This time the cruise will stop at Igoumenitsa, Itea, Olympia (Katakolon), Ephesus, Patmos and will arrive to Athens on 10/12.
      Our flight out is on 10/15 from Athens. So we will have several days there. Our friends recommended Mykonos and Delphi.
      Please come up with recommendations of what to do in or not far from Athens.

      New York City 17 hours ago

      Hi Kiwigirl travelling to NYC for 10days over Christmas and New Year! Xmas day I don't know anyone so any suggestions for Xmas day? Also New Years. Is Rosie's recommended on my own for ball drop? I'm well travelled and happy to do things on my own.... I hear there are shows on Xmas day or maybe I could help out at a homeless shelter to serve meals?
      Hoping to get own room somewhere (it's pretty expensive) but maybe a backpackers so can meet other travellers. Is there forums meet people travelling over same time?

      ( is 10 days too long and should I stay in Brooklyn and Manhatten to break up stay).

      We have rented a house in Queens for a few days' visit to the Apple City next month. As we don't have the car, we shall mainly rely on public transport. What should we do to cover the main attractions in a relaxed way as we are seniors. We need your advice. Thank you

    • LGA to Waldorf Astoria

      New York City Sep 21, 2015 at 2:59 PM

      Will be arriving LGA on a Friday late October around 1:30 p.m. Traveling with 2 other ladies and we need to know best way to get to Waldorf at 301 Park Avenue. Have heard of Q70 but then would need to take a subway line and not sure how close we can get...hoping we can all pack lightly and be able to manage our suitcases easily, a bit concerned about lots of stairs to navigate. My question is would it be easier/better to take M60 over the Q70 Ltd. express and for either of these busses what stops are closest to Waldorf, with least amount of walking?

      Thanks in advance for your help!

    • Winery suggestions

      by orlandoglobetrotter Online Now Jun 26, 2011 at 11:43 PM

      My wife and I are making our first (and probably only) visit to the Finger Lakes area. Since we may never make it back, we want to hit the really good wineries instead of wondering around looking for whichever ones we come across. And we thought the savvy VT members would have good suggestions. What we're looking for particularly is wineries on Seneca Lake. We'll be leaving from Watkins Glen heading toward I-90. We don't care which side we go up but want to only go up one side. Thus, if you suggest more than one (which we appreciate), please make them both on either the east or west side. We are also looking for wineries that would be especially good for "newbies" since we've never done other words, those that won't act like wine snobs but will instead have the patience to show us the drill. Finally, we are looking for wineries that have something more than wine to them such as a georgeous home, building, grounds or view or something else that sets that winery apart from the many others that dot Lake Seneca. Thanks for any and all help.
