    • Alexander Pushkin in Brussels

      Brussels Feb 9, 2017 at 4:04 AM

      Hi, if there is anybody still there...
      I am going to Brussels in May, just read today - it's exactly 180 years since he was killed by a fellow from these places - that there is a statue, a street and even a bus stop in Brussels named after our poet Alexander Pushkin (Pouchkine).
      I have found the statue in Laeken (wonder where this is), between metro stations Belgica and Bockstael. No sign of any street.
      Any idea how I get to this Laeken from Avenue des Merles, 9 à Woluwé Saint Pierre. The good old Google says it should take about an hour on two buses (or maybe they are metro lines). Does it look feasible?
      I do not know much about Brussels, have got a Home Exchange arrangment there - helps to travel economically...

      Hey, I am struggling on how to get to Split and I've got interrail pass. It seem a long journey as I am aware that we could waste our travel time on journey. We are going to Italy first from Monaco and then after Italy (Venice aka last stop of Italy) we are going to Split.. We want simple and short journey. We are student, and do anything for cheap prices.... We also plan to go to Austria in Tirol, Berlin, Europa Park in Germany and Krakow (Auschwitz Camp) but Paris got to be last stop, all in 2 week. Any advise?? Thanks

    • why did taxi driver rip us off

      Charleroi Aug 20, 2014 at 2:21 AM

      after reading comments party of six took symptax taxi to brusells from chaleroi which was fab. sadly on our return to the airport after wonderful sight seeing and tired I stopped at noodle bar and young man kindly phoned for a taxi for Charleroi airport from brusells central he asked the taxi company the price and we where told 50 euro but we would have to take 2 taxis total 100 this seemed good so we booked them. on the way to the airport the taxi driver took the wrong road and we took a huge detour. he assured us the price would not alter it was his error time was pushing on as we had connecting flight to catch. when we arrived at the airport the meter read 155 euro and including his detour he insited that we pay. the quote of 5o euro had been to the main airport after much arguing we had to pay as we had a flight to catch. when I met up witht he rest of my party three young males 23 they had been on the same detour with their taxi but had been forced to pay 250 euro as the taxi driver he insisted on the extra for his return to Brussels town as he would not have a fare returning. after much arguing the young men felt very intimidated buy the taxi and took the money from an atm a great proportionate of their holiday spends. what a truly disappointing experience to a lovely city. can I report this or should I just get over being ripped off we took the details the registration of one of the taxii's

Ideally we would like to avoid busy places and prefer instead more quiet ones where we can grill some food, go for nice hikes, etc. This is my first camping trip and I really want to make it memorable!

      Airport to Trainstation (Charleroi)

      Hello! i'm arriving in Charleroi at 23h00 and i want to take the Train from the Charleroi Station at 7h00 to Paris, booking a hotel room for 4-5 hours seems a bad choice considering the price i am going to pay, my question is simple, is the train station open 24h? because i was thinking of just spending those 5-6 hours at the train station, if not what do you propose?

      PS.IF the train station is 24h open, is it safe for me to stay there the whole night? thanks in advance!!!
