      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.

    • Experience Kodiak Island on your own?

      by nightwolf0215 Online Now Apr 24, 2015 at 3:07 PM

      I'd like to do some bear viewing, hiking, fishing, and other fun stuff while on Kodiak Island. Most of those activities are quite costly with a guide. Is it possible to experience what Kodiak has to offer in term of wildlife viewing without a guide on my own? I appreciate any info. Thanks.

    • July 2009 trip to Kodiak...need some answers

      by pogopat Online Now Jun 7, 2009 at 1:59 PM

      We are coming to go a mission trip--vbs for a small church there. Most days will be working with the children from 1-4. I would like to go kayaking, but do not want to go with a group tour type thing. Is there anyone who does kayaking around this area more one on one?

      Also...might be interested in hiking.

      Husband will probably be want to do something more to my interests.

      flying from Anchorage and back

      by a96m97 Online Now May 16, 2006 at 6:47 AM

      We have booked a 3-night bear viewing tour in Uyak Bay from Aug. 23 to 26.
      First, we will have to fly to Kodiak from Anchorage. Then we will reach Uyak Bay by floatplane.
      I have heard the weather is often rainy and/or foggy in Kodiak Island.
      I think the floatplane trips' schedule may easily change.
      But what about the flights from/to Anchorage?
      Does it often happen that they are cancelled or delayed because of bad weather?
      There are several daily flights and I don't know whether I should book much in advance or later on or ... ?
      When a flight is cancelled because of weather, does the airline usually try to move people to the next available flight automatically?
      Many thanks for any suggestions about this subject.
