I hadn't intended to ask this question quite yet, but I am thinking of flying into Amsterdam in 2018 and staying there a couple of days to see the city and get over jet lag before we fly to Kilimanjaro for a safari. I will be with my granddaughter who is a tiny little girl. I am currently using a scooter to get around, but I don't think my granddaughter will be able to pick up the scooter which weighs about 60 lbs. I can walk a short distance, but I cannot stand for more than about a minute without back pain and once my back starts to hurt I am finished for the day. That means that even standing in an elevator can be a problem.
I don't think that a scooter will be useful on safari and I am hoping that I can get along with just a cane that I can sit on. We will have a car and driver so most of my walking will be in the safari camps. I think I can do from the car to the room and from the room to dinner.
Also I thought we would take the hopon-hopoff canal boat trip and I don't think the scooter will be that useful there and I would be using the cane. The problem would come in getting to and from the canal boat.
Is there a hotel where I could stay there and then leave the scooter in storage while we go on the safari? Or is there any kind of rental place where I could rent one when i got there? I have stayed at a hotel where they had a wheelchair, but Bob had to push and I don't think my granddaughter will have enough mass to be able to wrangle me in a wheelchair (her two siblings also had a problem with this).
And what would be the best hotel/location to be able to see Amsterdam. Are there hotels with airport pick-up?
Do you have any other suggestions
I am travelling to Naxos in September -How many ferries are there a day -my flight arrives in Mykonos at 13:35
Thanks in advance
I need to get from Tehran to Tabriz mid April. I wonder how safe the overnight train is for an older woman travelling on her own? What would be an alternative to the train, it seems the flights are very expensive.
We are planning on taking a ferry from mainland Italy to Olbia. From Olbia, we have to get to Palau, which is 45 minutes away.
I was "strongly recommended" to rent a car. Does anyone know if we'd be better off renting a car in Olbia, or bringing one on the ferry from mainland Italy?
I looked into renting a car in Olbia, and the prices were outrageous (we need one for 5 days.) Does anyone know which rental company I should look into, and how much we can expect to pay?
We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.
We have been invited to join a couple of family members on a holiday in Austria based in St Anton am Arlberg. They are farmers and keen to see the Almabtrieb Cow Festival that takes place in the area.
I have always wanted to visit this part of Austrian Tyrol again after faint memories of a school trip to Innsbruck many moons ago.
I have not found much about Almabtrieb on the Internet and would welcome personal advice and information.
What would be the best way to go from Chinon to Chambord Chateau? I will only have an afternoon.
I will be ending a tour of southern France on a Thursday - end of Sept 2017. The tour will include: Pont du Gard, Arles, Les Baux, and Nice. I will have 7 days (following Thursday night) to get back to Paris for return flight.
What would be a good trip? I have not seen Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Vaison la Romaine. I would not mind going to Orange again. Prefer TGV rail over driving, but could rent a car for short trips.

We're planning a road trip to Washington (State) in July and I'd be interested in your views about the timing. Are we likely to encounter more crowds if we go immediately after July 4th rather than a bit later in the month, or is it just going to get busier if we leave it till the second half of the month? I do already know we should avoid Mount Rainier NP at weekends so we'll factor that into our planning.
Hi, i want to go jungle treking on a long multiple day camping trip; around, to, or from Munnar.

I would like to spend some time hiking around the Stelvio National Park in summer. Which town would be the best to use as a base to access the park. I do not drive and need to be able to rely on public transport. thank you
Figured I had better ask this now, as can't later. My husband and I generally travel with a 5-th wheel trailer, but are considering maybe trying out staying in a condo, apartment, house, etc. short term instead in the coming years. This would be for a 2 - 3 week stay in the US. So far I have found HomeAway and VRBO as possible helpful sources. I would appreciate any advice as to if these are the best ones, and/or are there others that are also valuable sources.
Hello Paris experts ;-)
We'll be attending the U2 show in Paris on July 25 and want to add a couple of extra days in and around the city.
I don't yet know where we'll be staying.
Our boys - who will be 9 and 11 by then - will be joining us. In fact it was their idea go along to a show and then our oldest one decided he wanted to see the Eiffeltower ... And what's a mum to do then but to buy tickets for the Stade de France then ... anything to keep the young ones happy (and now I can 'blame' them for the trip ;-) ).
We'll likely arrive there around noon on friday 21st and leave for home again on wednesday 26th.
Do any of you have a suggestion as on what kids might enjoy doing. The Eiffeltower is a must. Besides that: they don't mind a museum (as long as it doesn't take an entire day), they like history and they're not fussy about walking.
I've read something about the sewers tour ... do you think that's worth doing with kids?
As always: thanks for your input!

We will be visiting Amsterdam Nov 25 till Dec 3. That is 8 nights. I think 4 nights in Amsterdam will do and thinking of doing the other 4 in Belgium since it's easy to get to by train. Am interested in Brugge. But perhaps just 2 nights there? Any other place in Belgium? Ghent or Brussels?
Would they all be too similar (canals and more canals)? Really need your input..
