      Cheapest possible visa support for U.S. citizens?

      Russia 5 hours ago

      Looking for the lowest-bottom price.

      - Earlier "Express To Russia" was good with $18.

      - Today ordered one from iVisa for $15.59 or 1000 Rub

      There is one from http://5cd.ru/reception/index.php which is 900 Rub, but they have silly limitation (7 days) which should not apply to U.S. citizens, so I rather paid 100 Rub more.

      Anyone has a cheaper idea? Need for my wife + kids.

      Not very urgent, but within a week or so will apply.

      Thanks.

    • looking for Feb / Beg March Warm Swimming Water, ocean or lake

      Australia and Oceania 18 hours ago

      during our NZ trip in Feb / March we would like to incorporate regular swimming into our sight seeing plans. Used to swim in the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Mexico, Italy in summer and some lakes in Canada in mid summer when they are warm enough. Won't swim in cold water and can't imagine wearing a wet suit being enjoyable. So far I have planned stays in the Bay of Islands, Coromadel on E coast , Rotorua, Hawke Bay, Abel Tasman Bay, Akaroa / Children's Bay. How are water temps there ? Should we forget about Akaroa? Can change plans if need be.

      Would appreciate specific recommendations in above areas, or others if not too far off our route.

      Was trying to find a guide to warm water swimming online, all I get are beautiful surfing beaches.... am I the only one disliking frigid water ?
      Need help please.

    • 2 week itinerary for Gaspesie tour

      Gaspé 18 hours ago

      Hello,

      We are planning a visit to the Gaspesie region next summer - end of Aug/beginning of Sept. If we go in the beginning of September, will everything still be open? We will have our 2 year old son with us so we want to break up the driving into smaller chunks. We would also prefer to spend a few days in one place in Gaspe instead of moving from motel to motel. Can you please comment on this itinerary? Thanks!

      Day 1: Leave from Quebec City. Visit Kamouraska. Stopover for the night in Matane.

      Day 2: Visit Sainte-Anne-de-Monts. Arrive in Gaspé.

      Day 3: Stay in Gaspé. Hiking in Forillon National Park.

      Day 4: Stay in Gaspé. Visit Percé and Bonaventure Island. (Is one day enough time to visit the town of Percé and go out to Bonaventure Island or should I visit Percé one day and go out to Bonaventure Island on a second day?)

      Day 5: Stay in Gaspé. Whale watching (Where near Gaspé is good for whale watching?)

      Day 6: Stay in Gaspé. Beach (Which beaches are recommended?)

      Day 7: Stopover in Chaleur Bay (What is a good town to stay in Chaleur Bay that is about halfway to Rimouski with lodging, restaurants, and beaches? Carleton-sur-Mer or Bonventure?)

      Day 8: Stopover in Rimouski. Visit Bic National Park (Do I need a second day at Bic National Park?)

      Day 9: Arrive in Quebec City

      Day 10: Quebec City

      Day 11: Return home.

    • All-Inclusive Honeymoon

      Caribbean and Central America Sep 25, 2016 at 7:36 PM

      What all-inclusive resort should we go to for our honeymoon at the end of February to beat our last vacation? We are open to any city, country, and continent.

      We recently went to the Sandos Eco-Caracol in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and loved it! We are trying to top it to make our honeymoon special. We really liked the adventure-oriented opportunities at Sandos (bike-riding, cenote-swimming, hiking trails, hammocks, and animals) in addition to the traditional beach-and-poolside vacation elements, and we are struggling to find another resort that combines the two. Our must-haves are a variety of food options (big resort style) and unlimited liquor (not simply beer and wine; we're cocktail people). Thanks for your help!

    • terror warning

      Worlds End State Park 7 minutes ago

      Hallo,
      well actually i`m in india traveling the country. through some circumstances i met some people like travelers and whats happening there is horrible. Some get connected with some kind of sattelite technique.
      I informed myself and its about mind control, many infos about this like on mindcontrol.se, electronic harrassment, elf waves... They can somehow remotecorntol brains with some magnetic field resonance technique they really simply sent through low frequency microwave technique like its also used in radar just more specific.
      Some time ago they also contacted me and they really can transfer emotions, actions and simply words to one`s head or body and or record them for resending. They tried to drive me to burn some things even houses and they nearly made it that far. They also tried to push me to throw molotiv coctails into a kindergarden, driven by headace attacks and verbal confusion from their side i really bought dome petrol but then stopped doing anything even while having this pain.
      Also it seems to be possible to connect settings like "something new appears" with an specific mind or body reactions.
      Since some time i heard from many victims that they just get tormented every day. Me they told they are the biggest organisation in this field so there is no reason for fear for them and they just gonna do until they get catched what seems to be impossible for them.
      Well, they really forced some people to print the chineese president giving obama a blowjob, print this and put it on wall where many people are, at least at one big touristic place it was hanging for one month until some people from military took it down.
      Also the russian president shall be posted disgraced in front of dalai lamas temple in his home village, i dont know if this had been done.
      These are just some examples, many actions like this shall exist and also many victims and like i saw they really got treaten horribly to do things like this and even more horrible when they stopped.
      Actually!!!, and i know this because they are also contacting me more and more often they are forcing, and pushing people to really send poisoned!!! anonymous letters to worlds governments and other places, specially they mention russia, china and usa, also europe !!!
      Also they are pushing to motivate others, many postings according to this shall exist already, also they are now pushing to build small bombs somehow and to send them - i dont know where...
      ABSOLUTELY CRACY !!!
      Also they are trying to push me to do this even with tortoures painfull attacks!

      What is also cracy is that they are trying to cultivate a fable for pedophilic behavior in peoples minds with really strange and strong effects...
      WHAT TO DO ? HELP !!!

      Corfu Island 10 hours ago

      Hi there,

      Hoping for your opinions on which area to stay in Corfu!

      We have 4 nights in Corfu (July 9th - July 13th 2017).

      We have 5 adults and 2 children (6 and 8 years old).

      I have done lots of research but can't work which area to stay - it looks like there are many beautiful palces!!

      What we would like:

      - close to a beach

      - close to tavernas

      - 3-4 bedroom villa with private pool

      We would also like to have a little explore of Corfu old town.

      We don't need to be close to night clubs or late night bars.

      Which town / area would be best, in your opinion for a group of 7 with a nice beach and nice village / tavernas?

      I am wondering after a LOT of reading about Kassiopi...?

      Thanks!!

      Mead - any experience?

      Vladimirskaya Oblast' 13 hours ago

      Is being sold here and as far as I did see, ONLY here in Russia.
      The strength seem to be below expectation, the price is above expectation - and it seems. they add things to mead which do not belong there.

      Just bought 1l for 150 R or slightly under $3. After many tries so far the best was one for ca. 10 Sfr in Zürich at X'mas market (and it's stronger than Suzdalian). The strongest ever is sold in Ukraine, it's 40-proof, but I suspect from the taste it is not real.

      Any comments, experiences, where and what to buy locally?

      Patagonia travel

      Punta Arenas 20 hours ago

      My friend and I are planning a trip in January to Patagonia--unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding a guidebook that focuses on this region and does it well. The initial plan (not yet booked) is to start in Punta Arenas, but is that the best idea? I would be coming from Ushuaia (following an Antarctic cruise) and my friend would be coming from the US, so she's able to fly anywhere. If we do start in Punta Arenas, I'll probably take the bus there from Ushuaia, but maybe we should start somewhere in Argentina?

      We are interested in scenery, mild hiking (i.e. not climbing), and wildlife. To be honest I'm not particularly educated about what there is to do down there, how best to organize logistics, possibilities of including both countries in a reasonable time frame, etc. Any assistance is welcome!

    • Iceland in Late October?

      Iceland Yesterday

      Hello all,

      I have just stumbled across this fantastic board and am excited to read pages and pages of posts while I research!

      It looks like I may be taking a solo journey to Iceland towards the end of October (around the 18th or so for about a week). I know that I'm pretty far into the shoulder season, but I was hoping to drive the ring road (or at least a good portion of it, as I know it is recommended to take longer). My main goal will be to just be out on the road driving, seeing Iceland, and filling up as many memory cards as I can. Unfortunately, my budget precludes group tours so I'll just have to see what is there on my own! I'm hoping that there may be some fall colors in the ground cover to bring a different look to my images as well. So maybe some clear nights, maybe some fall colors, but hopefully some solitude and travel.

      With that in mind, are there any specific things I should be aware of? I'm generally a camping type of person, but realize that that is most likely not an option at that time of year. Might it be best to find hostels? Are many hostels open at that time of year? I'm a confident winter driver here in the States but realize that winter in Iceland is a different beast all together. Between possibility of snow and high winds, are there areas that you might suggest I avoid?

      Any tips, pointers, thoughts, links to threads I may have overlooked would be much appreciated! Thanks.

      Ferry Tickets

      Greece Yesterday

      I arrive at the Athens airport around 10 am and I see that a lot of the ferries leave at 7 am for the islands. There are others that sail around 2 pm for Santorini but would get into destination port late at night which I would prefer to avoid. I therefore figured that I would stay the first night in Athens and then take the 7 am ferry the next day. My question is, can I purchase ferry tickets at the airport or can they only be purchased at Piraeus? I thought I saw on the website that you may be able to purchase online but you still need to have the tickets printed off at the port. True?
