      10 Day Trip - Algarve & Seville

      Alaska Dec 22, 2016 at 7:53 AM

      My wife and I are spending 10 days in the Algarve area next April. We fly in and out of Faro. I'm thinking of staying in three or four different locations and would like to do a circular tour in our hire car. It seems sensible to take in Seville. Any ideas for towns where a couple of nights would be a pleasant experience? Our interests are history, culture and moderate walking. Phil C

    • Suggestions while in Alaska

      Alaska Jan 6, 2017 at 1:05 AM

      Planning a trip to Alaska on 18feb for about 1week. Planning to catch the northern lights. Do you think its the right time? Will fly into Anchorage and will take the train to Fairbank. Will spend a few days there. Any recommended place to visit? Thought of renting a car to move around, is it a good idea? Or good to just join any tours? Will spend a few days too in Anchorage after Fairbank. Any suggestions where and its a must to visit while in Alaska? Top priority is to try catch the northern lights. Recommended place to be? Thanks and hear from all of you.

      Is the Eagle Preserve Jetboat likely to be fun for boys ages 7 and 10 in June, or are they liable to get bored?

      Thanks!

      getting around Haines

      by firefly2010 Online Now Apr 16, 2010 at 5:11 PM

      Can you walk to town from the cruise ship? Is it best to do an excursion from the ship or can you find and book one on your own? Any suggestions on what to see there for the day.

    • scenic drive from Haines to BC in March?

      by jodiNYnjCO Online Now Mar 4, 2010 at 12:03 PM

      We are arriving in Haines, AK around March 15th, and intend to take the scenic drive into BC sometime that week. Can anyone tell me that the Pass/road is definitely open during this time of year? Also, does anyone know of some easy-access backcountry skiing along this drive? Or have a weblink to information on backcountry skiing this area? Any info is greatly appreciated!

      haines or skagway

      by 9tigers Online Now Apr 28, 2008 at 6:34 AM

      I will be fly into haines and stay there and rent a car and drive up to haines junciton, I think it is beautiful...
      I was originally thinking of take the water taxi the next day to skagway and take a bus tour to white pass, then take the ferry back to Juneau, but is it all worth it to go over skagway? or haines is just as beautiful?

      thanks
