Hi there, Can anyone recommend a good resort for a family with kids. We don't mind which island but don't want Blackpool in the Sun. We went to Castillo Caleta de Fuste on Fuerteventura last year and really enjoyed it, so some where similar on another island. We have mostly gone to Greece before and liked resorts like Scala in Kefalonia and Archavari in Corfu, a resort with enough places to eat and drink different every night but not to commercialised. Any recommendations gratefully received.
We are travelling from Rome to Sorrento in August. Any advice on the best way to get there ? It looks like fly Naples then bus Sorrento
Planning on a trip to this area in late Spring and while bus transportation on Lux and Eco Lines is pretty good in the area there are limited options between the Vilnius and Warsaw. Three of the four options involve overnight trips on the bus.
Are there any options currently available, that I am missing, that get you from Warsaw (please identify station) into Vilinus in the late afternoon or very early evening? Thanks !
My husband and i will be visiting St Petersburg and Moscow for the first time in August. We are extremely excited. Unfortunately when we told friends and family the response was that we would not be welcome or safe in Russia. I don't feel this is true but I guess I am looking for reassurance. I also am on a medication ordered by my Doctor called escitalopram. I need to know that this is a legal medication in Russia. I would like to dress in a manner that is respectful to the Russian people while we are there. Is there anything I need to know to do this. Any help with theses questions will be greatly appreciated, especially the medication question.
Hey guys Can someone please explain me the easiest way to get to train station that goes to Strasbourg from Baden Airpark? I had been looking trains on www.thetrainline-europe.com, but I didn't find where is train station in Baden Baden, so I don't want to buy tickets for a wrong station if there is more than one station in Baden Baden. Also, is there easier way to get to Strasbourg, cause this seems really confusing to me. Thank you in advance for your answers! Anja
We are going to Amsterdam May 1st for 14 days. Then a stop in Istanbul for 2 days. We are from Texas and it will be warm when we leave home but I'm reading that it is much cooler there. I am hoping to pack very light with only the essentials..which is going to be a challenge for this Texas girl!
Also, no white tennis shoes??? I read they stand out and you will be spotted as an American tourist immediately.
Any helpful packing tips would be greatly appreciated as well.
I am planning a tourist trip to Germany, hoping to get a good look at all Germany has to offer. There is 6 of us in the group, all fairly active people.
I'm planning on visiting 3-4 places and staying there each for a few days. Traveling between each one with an interrail pass. Could someone suggest areas to visit, that are within a few hours of each other. I cannot decide where to go, and what are the 'must see' areas of Germany for our first trip. Or where to stay! We would like to see cities, zoos, castles and cultural Germany..can we do this all within 7-9 days?
Thanks in advance!
My wife and I are traveling to the Netherlands and Belgium this summer. We will rent a car to drive around, so we will not be able to sample beer during the day. I use my credit card to cover the CDW on the rental and there is a 0 tolerance clause with using it.
Our goal is to see the country, the major cities, and a good selection of Trappist and other breweries as possible. Figure 2 weeks just in Belgium, including Brussels.
Now comes the hard part. How to generate an itinerary such that we can see as many Trappist breweries, and others as possible and sample the beer.
So we need to find accommodations near these places, and limit them to possibly one per day.
Any and all input on breweries to see, and places to say nearby (that is within walking distance, say max of 2 km.) would be helpful.
Hi, I´m starting to plan my trip for this June, i´m not sure yet about my destination as haven´t bought my air tkts yet. I´m considering London - 5 days then Dublin+Belfast 3 or 4 days(?) . My initial questions: Should I rent a car in Dublin to explore around and drive to Belfast? Is it enough time to have a look at these two cities? Where is it better to look for accommodations? Thanks, your inputs will help me to start!
Can anybody update on the current status of ice on Lake Baikal? Has cars started travelling on the frozen lake?
Hi, I have never been to Greece, so this is new territory for me. I am hoping to visit Greece at the beginning of April this year. I have very limited time (8 days in total) and my arrival and departure dates are inflexible. However, I am hoping to build in some flexibility during the eight days.
So, what I would like to know is, taking into account that it is April i.e. low season, how much flexibility is there with booking ferries and accommodation a day or two before going out to one of the islands like Santorini?
My thinking at the moment is to arrive in Athens and to spend one day/two nights there, and then to get an idea of what the weather is going to be like for the next couple of days. If the weather is quite OK, I would like to book/get on a ferry and head out to an island for a few days. I will need to book accommodation as well, which I would need to do in Athens.
My tentative itinerary looks something like this, but it depends on the weather:
- Tuesday: Arrive late afternoon / overnight Athens
- Wednesday: Day in Athens / overnight Athens
- Thursday: Travel to an island, preferably Santorini, using Blue Star Ferries
- Friday: Santorini / overnight Santorini
- Saturday: Santorini / overnight Santorini
- Sunday: Travel to Athens using Blue Star Ferries / overnight Athens
- Monday: Open day / flexi day
- Tuesday: Open day / flexi day
- Wednesday: Day in Athens / overnight Athens
- Thursday: Depart Athens am
What I am certain of, no matter the weather, is to be in Athens the Wednesday, because I depart Thursday morning. I do not want to be on an island on the Wednesday only to find myself stuck becaue of bad weather.
I would appreciate any advice on this matter.
So I saw this awesome bag while I was in Engelberg and decided I'd purchase it after I came home online. Well, I have been unable to find it anywhere online and was wondering if anyone knew where I might be able to purchase the bag and has international shipping to the US available. If anyone can help me I'd be extremely greatful!
We've been planning a trip for a while to include the Netherlands, Belgium including Brussels, and Luxembourg. Traveling some time this summer.
Given the recent terrorists attacks in Paris with connections to Brussels, I'm reconsidering this part of our trip. From folks who live there or nearby, what are your thoughts/inputs? Yes, I understand that if I let the terrorists influence my decision, then they have won. But ...
Can anyone reccommend a good road map of Albania? We will be hiring a car to get around, and we are not keen on GPS systems.
Thanks in advance!
So it's, been about a month since my last question, and now I'm curious if anyone has recommendations for a company that would book lodging for us? I usually enjoy the planning bit of trips, but I'm over it on this one! I think I'd rather pay a little more and have someone who knows what they are doing plan where we will be sleeping.
I've spent the morning searching for sites, and all seem pretty similar in their offerings. Looks like the "self guided tour" is what I'd have to end up going with. But I do already have the book and a map, and we don't want luggage transport, really just the lodging booked and in case it's needed, transport to get there. (The rest of the group has decided unless dorms have a quad room, they are a no go).
So just wondering if anyone has a service they'd recommend? (Trying to stay under $1600/person)

Where can I buy steel tipped darts from in Poznan. I can't take them in my hand luggage can I ?
I just joined, and can't find how to do a search.
I am flying to Greenland in July, from Toronto, and from what I see, the routes are through Iceland. This is good because after GL I will be going to IL for 2 weeks.
Hoping you folks can give me suggestions on cheapest airlines, or if I should use travel agent?
What is good approximation of US dollars to get there?
Thanks so much.
(Also, where do I find a search tool in VT?)
I assume yes for these months, but want to double check...thx
Hi, we are 4 girls from which three are 17 years old and one 18 years old. Im looking for a greek island to go to during the summer with intense nightlife and nice hotels. What do you suggest? Also i would like to be informed about other european holiday destinations for 17 years old. Thanks:)
We're two active, mid 50's who like a relaxing holiday is small, local places by the sea. Crete is our plan for 2016. Ideally, somewhere with some bars and restaurants and a lack of nightclubs! We plan to travel in September, and go self catering if possible. We're not high maintenance, so long as the place is clean, comfortable and close to amenities, we're good to go. We like to walk, cycle, use local transport and generally explore. We've had a couple of suggestions, Sissi being one. Most of the reviews I read, though, are quite a few years old. Anyone visited recently, got any suggestions?
My wish list (but realise I can't have everything) is: Clean, self catering apartment, sea/harbour view, local/small town/village, bars/tavernas, supermarket, local restaurants.
Myself and 2 girl friends will be travelling to Munich 3rd-5th March 2016.
Is there anything we must see in our time there? We like a mix of sight seeing, and bars/restaurants in the evening. We like quirky or hidden places that some tourists may not know about.
Where is best to stay? Particular areas etc?
Any other tips or hints?
Thinking of driving to Trondheim and maybe Bergen by car in August.
We are two adults and a pet. Recommendations where to stay in Trondheim?
How are the roads in August from Trondheim to Bergen? Lots of head spinning cliffs and narrow roads? I'm scared of heights.
We are thinking of taking the ferry from Wasa to Umeå (Sweden), then drive through Sweden and end up to Trondheim. We are trying to avoid Stockholm. According to map I suppose there is a green valley and road to drive to Trondheim?
Hi Will the problem of schengen visa be sorted ? ..would it impact tourists ?
We will be in Norway for a week in late April after a week in Netherlands, where we will have spent a week in Amsterdam. We are a family of 6 with children ages 21, 18, 15, 13. We are reasonably adventurous and primarily are wanting to see the beauty of Norway, other than our time in Oslo.
Our plan is:
-2 nights in Oslo, primarily to visit our ancestral villages in the area; we aren't planning on spending as much time in the city (1.5 days)
--Norway in Nutshell Oslo-Bergen (all day)
-2 nights in Bergen (one full day to see the city)
-1 night (2 days) UNKNOWN
-2 nights Stavanger (hike Preikestolen)
First off, do the known parts of this itinerary seem doable? I know that we aren't spending much time in Oslo, but with all the beauty out west, it seemed the more efficient thing to do. NIN would give us the chance to see a beautiful section of the country while travelling west. Is one day enough in Bergen? I assume the Preikestolen hike takes most of the day? What will the travelling, weather, and scenery be like in late April? I understand that some things are still closed in April.
The primary thing I would like advice on is how to handle the undetermined 2 days and 1 night between Bergen and Stavanger. I am thinking of renting a van and possibly taking two days to get down to Stavanger, staying somewhere along the way to break up the trip and see the country. Was thinking of seeing Hardangerfjord and travelling south from there. Any recommendations on this? Where would be the place to stay, and primary things to see? Another option could be to spend 2 nights somewhere, and only spend 1 night in Stavanger, after the Preikestolen hike. Or should we stay in the Bergen area or the Sognefjord area and maximize our time there, taking the Kystbussen bus down to Stavanger or fly. (I have heard that there no longer is an express boat from Bergen to Stavanger).
Keep in mind that Stavanger is a must because we fly out from there, are Preikestolen is a priority.
Thanks for your help!
I will be arriving Liege from Maastricht and connecting on Thalys to Paris Nord. I arrive in Liege 20 minutes before the Thalys departs. In the past this has never been an issue but I understand the Thalys boarding platform is now restricted to ticket holders only for security reasons. Should I be concerned about a massive line trying to pass thru some sort of security screening and face the possibility of 20 minutes not being enough time to clear the security screening and miss my Thalys connection? Much thanks in advance

I will be in Minori (Amalfi Coast) for 5 weeks. I have read up on all the tourist cities and want to know out of the way cities. I will be by myself a lot of the time. A day trip to a nearby town (away from the coast) would be great. I also hope to find local eateries where the Italians go.
I will be there April 23 to May 30.
Hi. I went to Ponta Delgada in late 2014 on a cruise. Great place. I am trying to find out the name (and contact info) for a store right near the port that sold souvenirs, food, wine, etc. It was on the main street that goes along the water. They have a large cow statue outside of their store. They also gave out tasting samples of jam/jellies. I purchased several and would like to get more. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
