      We are looking far a ski venue + nearby accomodation .... at a ski venue in Poland.
      Preferably Eastern Poland.
      With reasonable snow till late in March ... hopefully early April.

      Is there still any snow at that time ? Or will one need to go to Estonia or Latvia for that

      Petition here: change.org/p/tripadvisor-sav...

      In short it reads: For nearly 18 years VirtualTourist.com has served as our home for sharing our travel adventures and advice, and for connecting with other travelers. TripAdvisor, which owns the website, has said it will close the doors on VT in February and delete millions of tips, reviews, photos and videos from the site. Many of us have used VT as a way to preserve our experiences to share with our friends, our children, our grandchildren and other travelers. We believe there is a way for Trip Advisor to keep our content. Simply keep the member pages, which we know are not indexed by google, turn off the travel guides and forums, and freeze new postings and new memberships but please let us keep and preserve our memories…many of which have been well over a decade in the making! We would even be open to paying a small fee to have our pages saved as part of this library! Steve Kaufer, we implore you to please reconsider deleting decades of memories from existence and keeping our pages intact!! Thank you for your consideration!

      Travelling to Lisbon with children in April

      Portugal Jan 7, 2017 at 6:54 PM

      My last attempt to go to Lisbon was in 2005, with my ageing mother. I had collected great tips from reading fellow VT'ers tips and assembled an array of ideas. The day before departure my mother keeled over with a stroke and did not regained sufficient strength to travel anymore. So now with the kids, trying again:
      Question 1: 3 things to do with children that need to be challenged, not entertained, aged 8-11 in Lisbon?
      Question 2: choice of 3 places to stay (towns, not necessarily hotels) on the Algarve coast between the Spanish border and the south-west cape, keeping kids in mind?

      - Yes, indeed, I am reading all relevant info on the Portugal VT pages, but a little help would be good to cut through the jungle...

      Thank you for any responses to what is probably one of my last questions before VT closes down...

    • Getting to the Airport

      Molde Jan 1, 2017 at 4:26 PM

      I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how best to get to the airport, or to the Hertz dealership near or at the airport. I'll be arriving where the cruise ships bring their passengers, so I assume I'll be able to walk to the trafikterminalen bus station to catch a bus. I found the schedule for the Eide bus (I think) and it looks like a bus goes there about once or twice an hour in the morning on weekdays.

      Are there any other alternatives? About how much would a cab cost to go from the center of Molde to the airport, and are they readily available near the bus terminal and/or where the cruise ships dock (or bring their passengers)?

      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      Also considering Italy and Greece, I'll post over there too.

      hotel location

      Amsterdam Yesterday

      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

      Hi there,
      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?

      Paris with kids

      Paris Jan 13, 2017 at 6:23 AM

      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!

      Am planning to travel from Cluj to Piatra Neamt to check out that monastery region and admittedly it's a fair distance between the 2 places
      Can someone advise me if there is a bus service running for this route? And if not, what would be a recommended jumping off point for a night along the way to break up the journey?
      Thanks everyone in advance for all your help!
      DG

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a little old town within walking distance.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      We'd love to visit Italy, also considering Greece and France, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

      Specialist advice re coach holidays

      United Kingdom Jan 9, 2017 at 2:58 PM

      We have a long established local company that organises local day trips, theatre trips as well as short and longer holiday breaks in the UK and Europe..
      We have, so far, only used them to take us to and from events in the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
      They have an excellent reputation amongst local people who have used then for longer holidays in the UK and overseas.
      . We are considering a coach and Eurotunnel trip to the Austrian Tyrol. 8 days in all.
      Can you please advise me if we should see any particular details of affiliation to any travel authorising associations ABTA - that sort of thing.
      They are www.europeanheritagetours.com
      We usually travel independently with full Travel Insurance but now octogenarians like the idea of sitting back and enjoying the view with somebody else at the wheel
      I would be very grateful for any advice you can give.
      Thanks
