Mrs Flying.Scotland and I are considering a one week canal boat holiday next August / September. We will both be 70, are reasonably fit, and want a trip that goes through small towns and villages with good canalside pubs and nice countryside too. Can anyone suggest what is their favourite canal trips and also any pointers for first time canal boaters. Thanks for any help you can give us. Bruce
Hi ! I m going alone in Corralejo from the 13th to 20th december. I took some kitecourses but i also want to visit or to do some activities there. Is anyone also there during this time ?
I will be visiting London for 3 days in March. I would like to take a day to visit Stonehenge and Glastonbury Tor (both in the same day).
I saw there was a tour offered that included them both, but they are only on Fridays, and unfortunately I will not be there at that time.
What is the best way to travel from London to these two sites? Rail? Bus? Some other way?
Thank you for any information.
I'm planning a trip to Nottingham where I will show my friends the sandstone beauty, the City of Caves. Since we may spend there a lot of time, I need some recommendations on good cafes/restaurants/pubs near this attraction to have a dinner at. Where would you go? =) The cuisine doesn't matter, but the distance does (it should be near the City of Caves). I've found a list of restaurants at alltheviews.com/restaurants-... but still can't decide on a place to visit. Is Ibérico World Tapas really great?
We're looking to travel Europe for a few weeks in the summer, the plan is to fly into Berlin and use public transport/trains to get from country to country or city to city! Anyone done this before and can help me find the best / most flexible / cost efficient methods of travelling, including moving through countries! Haven't had this type of holiday before and willing to spend money but would like to see how far we can get on a budget! Thanks in advance
I'm new here and I hope you can help me with advice:
Being studying various restaurant comparing sites (Tripadvisor, Michelin, Alltheviews...), I decided to try out Ye Olde Mitre Yelp and Tripadvisor estimate it pretty high (as I can judge from alltheviews.com/Ye-Olde-Mitr...), but I want a real person opinionб who has been there recently. I forgot to mention the reason - why I'm choosing a place to go out: we want to celebrate my father's bithday and he likes bars a lot. So, we need one with a good atmosphere.
So, is Ye Olde Mitre a good place to go to for a celebration?
I'm going to London and Scotland next week for 2 weeks, and I need the prepaid sim card that supported 3G/4G internet data, actually I need the most for data / internet. Does anyone can help me which one is the best prepaid sim card for internet data with good coverage during my stay in London and Scotland (Edinburgh, Hihgland and Isle of Skye)? Can I get it at the Heathrow airport or any recommended shop that I can buy for that prepaid sim card? Thanks.
HI 5 Girls are coming to Chania next summer and I'm trying to search were to base them.
I don't want them driving as they are young, and I prefer they get ferries or boats to go to
Balos Beach, Elafonissi , and wherever else they want. Is chania the only place to be based for no Transport ?
They will go clubbing to PLatanias and Agai Marina. Is transport to and from there easy at Night ?

Thank you for those who had advice about Christmas Eve in Zurich.
So just a few more questions...
1. I can't seem to find info online about a mass on Christmas Eve. We are Catholic and only speak English, but would be fine attending any denomination church service on Christmas Eve that is not in English. Perhaps some singing, or a midnight mass, I just need help finding any info.
2. We arrive at 11 am in Zurich, by train from Lucerne. Will be flying out of Zurich at 7 am on Christmas morning.
I want Christmas Eve to feel like the most special day of our trip, and therefore this is not a budget day. So I have looked at many hotels, and have narrowed it down to
Hotel St. Gotthard,
Hotel Arlene Bein Hauptbahnhof,
Zurich Marriott and
Any input or suggestions about which to choose for one night would be appreciated.
3. I am wondering if all of the shops and restaurants on the shopping streets and old town will be closed since Christmas Eve is a day for families to be together at home?
4. What restaurant would have a very nice dinner on Christmas Eve?
With just one short day in Zurich, and trying to fit in a nice dinner and mass, and a little walking around town shopping, I am having a very hard time narrowing down where to stay and to have dinner on Christmas Eve.
Thank you for suggestions in advance!
My wife and I are getting down to site seeing while in Iceland. Arriving in Iceland on the 16th of May for 9 full days of traveling. We are looking for suggestions as we plan to travel in a camper.
will be in port in civitavecchia may 1. wanting to get to rome to tour on our own using the rick steves "heart of rome walk" as a guide. the best and least expensive option is for us to take the train in to rome and then use the metro and walking as a way to accomplish just a bit of sight seeing. my question: is using the train/ metro a viable option on this holiday day or should we spend way more money and use the ship's transport in to rome (which guarantees we will arrive back at the ship for departure). we will be in port for about 10 hrs and i realize it takes an hour or more to get in to the city from civitavecchia. opinions? we know most all the big tourist spots are closed this day.
Can anyone give me a travel trip like what things to do in Luzern?
- Recommend restaurants
- Nice budget hotel
Hi Paris expert friends - Would someone know the transportation options from the Gare de Lyon to Orly Airport? Thanks, Jean
I am heading to Paris in January. On my last day I do not need to be at the airport until about 5 o'clock to catch my plane to Sydney. I obviously want to make the most of this as a sight-seeing day(possibly Disnayland) but will have my luggage with me. Does anybody know of any storage lockers or something I would be able to take my big bag to? Does the airport have lockers for rent? Or does Disneyland have big storage cubes? Or would some hotels offer baggage holding even when you have checked out?

Are there any boats (public or commercial) that cover the stretch from Naples to Sorrento?
My husband and I will this year spend Christmas in Zurich. After Christmas we would like to spend 2-3 days near Zurich enjoying the beautiful Swiss nature, before departing from Zurich airport on December 29.
We are looking for something in the mountain where we can enjoy the picturesque landscape and the snow. We don't ski but we would like to be able to go for some walks and enjoy the nature.
We are therefore looking for some advise of which areas we should look for and might even a hotel recommendation?
We would prefer a nice small hotel in the nature, maybe even with a spa where we can relax.
Our budget is somewhere around CHF 150-300 per night.
My sister and I are heading to London in January for a week before starting a tour through Europe. We have never been to London before so we want to see as much as we can eg. West End, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, British Musuem. Just wondering what suburbs would be the best to stay in- close to the action and/or close to public transport?
We would be wanting to stay in hotels (but not super expensive ones).
Thanks for your help!
On Dec. 13-15d. I'm planning to visit Milan. One of the main museums I'd like to visit is Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese region. According to giromilano.atm.it's journey planner, I should take the M1 metro and then at the nearby Rho rail station, I should catch a 561 line bus and then get off at the Via Aldo Moro street, with a few hundred metres left to reach my destination.
My question is: if I buy a 2-day ATM ticket (which cost 8.25 €), does it still mean it's valid around Arese area or is it only around Milan center (in other words: will I have to buy additional bus tickets to get there)?
Thanks in advance
I am heading to Riga in January and am wondering if anyone has any experience with buying amber? Of course I want a decent deal but I am also told that there is synthetic amber as well. What should I look for or watch out for? Does anyone have any suggestions on where to buy it? The Central Market keeps coming up as a place where they sell it, is this a good option? Please advise! I don't want to come back with plastic! Thanks!
We want to travel from Trier on Saturday 10 December to Bernkastel and back to Trier. Would like to be in Bernkastel around 13.00 hrs and leave at about 19.00. We shall be visiting the Christmas Market and hope to see the Advent Calendar at 17.30. I have found a return journey using just one bus (No 333) but that only seems to give us 2 -3 hours there. Other journeys seem to involve train, coach, and bus with various changes from one mode of transport to another. Would appreciate any advice and suggestions. Thank you!
Are there any 24 hour bars in Barcelona, hopefully easy to find. when I was last there there was one, Velodroma but I'm not sure now.
I am keen to go to Jostedalsbreen Glacier, or another glacier if there is a better option in the same region of Norway.
On Jostedalsbreen Glacier it seems there are a few choices of places to go to, such as Briksdalsbreen and Nigardsbreen, and there are also different options such as just look or do a guided walk.
I found a bus which goes from Stryn, Loen and Olden to the Briksdalsbreen Glacier, so I can do a day trip this way.
This means I can get to the bottom of a glacier, and I have 2 1/2 hours to walk around, and it is a very reasonable price.
But what are my other options?
Are there any other accessible glaciers in the region which I should consider?
How much would a guided walk cost, where would I have to go to do the walk, and who offers these walks?
I won't have a car, so I am limited by where buses or tours go to.
Any guidance on this would be very much appreciated.

Helooouuu everyone. At the beginning of January I´m going to visit a cousin of mine who lives in Utrecht. We´ll probably meet in Amsterdam, spend a day there, and in the evening head to Utrecht. Initially the idea was to spend a day in Utrecht and then fly back home, but I´ve noticed Rotterdam isn´t that far. Now, should I be staying in Utrecht on Friday and spend the Saturday in Rotterdam, or is it too little time for 2 cities?
Thanks in advance :D
