    • Visiting Kona for Ironman Oct 2017

      Kailua-Kona Jan 8, 2017 at 1:39 AM

      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Can anyone please suggest/recommend good location to stay (and possible condos/hotels/airB&B) within easy reach of start and transitions.

    • Long term parking in Laredo, then taxi to Quetzalcoatl Airport in Nuevo Laredo

      Laredo Dec 25, 2016 at 7:23 PM

      I'm searching for information on long term parking in Laredo, Tx near the border. Having a hard time finding information on where to park and how much it's likely to cost. Surely someone has done it! Can you give me some info?

      Need to take a taxi from the border to Quetzalcoatl Airport (Nuevo Laredo International). Is that do-able?

      Final question: any idea how long this likely to take? I've got a flight out from Nuevo Laredo International late afternoon and don't know exactly how to plan it, timewise.

      Thank you so much for anything you can tell me!

Is it advisable to take the ferry back and forth to see (walk/ taxi) some of the mainland sites? Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, perhaps, Balboa Park (Zoo), etc.? How about if we want dinner on the mainland? Or should we drive to most places? Itinerary not set yet.

      Between Tallahassee Florida and Summerville SC

      United States of America Jan 8, 2017 at 5:57 PM

      I have a gap of about 4 days between my grandson's graduation in Tallahassee on Friday or Saturday and my granddaughter's wedding in Summerville SC on the following Saturday. Where can I go and stay for four days that is somewhat between Tallahassee and Summerville. I thought of Jekyll Island, St. Simons' Island, or St. Augustine, but I have been to all those places a couple of times. I've also stayed in Hilton Head for a week (hated it), and visited Savannah. I'd rather be in a small place than a big city.

    • Specific Location

      Los Angeles Jan 6, 2017 at 6:48 AM

      Hi. I posted another question about where to stay but am now more specific with areas. We will be going to Universal one day, Warner Brothers tour, doing things near Hollywood Blvd area, and then exploring other tourist things.

      Which area/hotel is better...near Universal City (Studio City hotel) or Hollywood Blvd (Hollywood Celebrity hotel), near but off Hollywood Blvd a bit (Days Inn) or Thai Town (Dixie Hotel)? We will have a car but am thinking one of those.
      Have narrowed it down to one of those based on budget and not being too far from Universal and Hollywood Blvd area. We have Hollywood Celebrity booked (but we can cancel).

      Hello. In August of 2017 we will be traveling from Raleigh Durham Airport, NC to Clark Lake in Door County, WI. We are frequent Southwest Airlines fliers, so we would like to use our Southwest earned miles, but are not sure of the best airport to fly to. We know we will be renting a car to reach Door County from whatever airline we select. We are thinking Green Bay or Milwaukee, but are not sure whether SWA travels to Green Bay, or if the difference in cost would make it more economical to drive a rental from Milwaukee. Looks like a 2 1/2 hr drive from there to Door county. Thanks in advance for any help

      Fall Trip 2017 Quaint with Appalchian Trail Access

      Vermont Dec 22, 2016 at 12:35 PM

      Mary and I are skipping our way along the AT this fall "doing" Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine by doing day hikes with lodging in quaint towns that have short drives to AT access points. Besides hiking we love to stroll and poke our noses into quaint little spots for shopping, eating and relaxing. Seeking a mix of remote spots with maybe a nice farm house or cabin as well as a populated small town with a quaint B&B or Inn.

      Blue Highways are preferred for travel between stops which are usually 3 days.

      So far these places seem to jump out - Grafton, Woodstock and a rural area outside of Rutland. We have no clues yet about Southern Vermont in the Green Mountain area. Comments about neighboring Delaware are welcomed!

      Routes as well as lodging tips welcomed!

      PHX Car Rental transfers, eating and shopping.

      Phoenix Dec 28, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      i am flying out of Phoenix which is an airport I've not been through previously. Can anyone advise ease of transfer from dropping off (Alamo) car hire and navigating through to Departures Terminal 3? I think it may involve a shuttle - if so how regularly do they run (6:30 - 7:30 am. Travelling alone so no one to share luggage humping with. Potentially I could check in car the night previous and use an airport hotel (would need transfer for that though?) but hoping that traffic will be reasonable at that hour in the morning on a Wednesday even if I had to navigate short stretch of I10 over Salt River? Also too early for breakfast at hotel so any suggestions in Terminal? Guessing that the shopping will be the usual gift oriented and duty free goodies - or should I save back some dollars - wishful thinking that I'll have any!

      Best site for renting house or Condo Short term?

      Figured I had better ask this now, as can't later. My husband and I generally travel with a 5-th wheel trailer, but are considering maybe trying out staying in a condo, apartment, house, etc. short term instead in the coming years. This would be for a 2 - 3 week stay in the US. So far I have found HomeAway and VRBO as possible helpful sources. I would appreciate any advice as to if these are the best ones, and/or are there others that are also valuable sources.

      United States of America Jan 12, 2017 at 8:09 AM

      We will rent a car in fall 2017 in the USA for about 3 Weeks.

      I noticed that all the rental companies want to charge arount 150-500$ for a Navigation System. This is really much, compared to the 1500$ rental cost!!

      They will use these standart "window mount" navigation devices i guess.
      We don't want to pay that much, so i was looking for options.

      Would you reccomend buying a GPS in an eletronic store?
      I saw a lot of them for like 80-120$, and if you once have one, you can use it on all your future travels in us

      Since where not from us, a device that tells us the current speed limit would be nice!:)

    • Passport/Airline Ticket Name Mismatch

      Chicago Nov 9, 2015 at 6:55 PM

      I'm traveling from Chicago to Paris via Turkish Airlines this Thursday night, with a 3 hour layover in Turkey.

      My girlfriend originally booked the ticket under my diminutive name, Nick, while my passport and Wisconsin ID display my full name, Nicholas. The ticket was booked through a travel agency, which was kind enough to get Turkish to cancel the original ticket and book the same flight and itinerary under my full name. However, that flight has now gone up in price considerably, so the only option I have left is keeping the original ticket (which wasn't cancelled after the agency realized the price went up).

      Is this going to be major cause for concern? Turkish has repeatedly told me that they do not allow name corrections on tickets purchased electronically. Right now I'm thinking my best bet is to arrive at the airport way ahead of time and bring any and all supporting documents I can and talk to the ticket counter. Here's to hoping I come across a Turkish rep and TSA agent in great moods... Should I be losing sleep?

Once you enter on the 1st one you had to pay an entrance fee, then they gave you a wristlet which you could use to get into any of the blues clubs on the same street/area, as many clubs as you wanted. Now I'm going to visit the windy city again and I wonder if anyone knows which is the place/street/area I'm talking about. Is it still exists? Thanks for your help! I'd appreciate it very much

      Traveling to and around Chicago for the first time :)

      Chicago Aug 9, 2015 at 12:18 PM

      Hi. I'm coming into Chicago this week for the first time. I've never navigated public transportation before. I'm headed from O'Hare, to my airbnb downtown, to Soldier Field. I'm petrifield of missing a stop, or not finding the spots I need to go to for the bus/eL. Are they easily navigated by newbies?

      Also, I have to take the UPN (is that right? lol) to Great Lakes the next day.

      Any tips would be appreciated.

      Thanks in advace.

      Swimming Pools for Visitors

      Chicago Aug 6, 2015 at 7:43 AM

      Here am I, a Chicagoan, Asking this question: where can my visiting grandkids go to swim in a pool? They've been to the beach, of course, since we live on this big lake. However, their father would like to take them to a pool--and we can't find one that admits people without a membership! The park district requires proof of residence, and for many reasons too long to explain, neither my husband nor I can go with. So.........anybody know of a pool where they can just pay to get in for a few hours?

      The park district, unfortunately, has mostly indoor pools that are extremely regulated. The one near us, for example, closes the pool most of the day for water aerobics, day camp, etc., so that's out.

      Public order and safety

      Chicago Jul 31, 2015 at 8:35 AM

      Hi dear fellow travelers and especially citizens of Chicago,

      As far as I remember last celebration of July 4 was, let me say, noisy in Chicago. The butcher’s bill was seven shot dead including seven years boy whose father has been arrested forty three times but was never imprisoned and who probably was the real target, plus forty wounded. So, my question is, what areas, blocks of Chicago are safe and what dangerous. What areas white European should never enter, should no enter during dark time and so on.
      I hope central part of the city including area with Chicago Institute of fine arts is relatively safe as any European city.

      Thank you in advance.
