    • 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!

      Planning a Possible Road Trip

      Texas Dec 10, 2016 at 6:22 AM

      Need to get from Fort Worth to SE Arizona early March with probably 1 overnight stop but want to break up the driving into maybe approx. 4 hour stretches. Any suggestions for "must see" locations? Would prefer to avoid too much Interstate driving but conscious I am travelling alone so not wishing to go too far off track. My preferences are for scenery, science and nature as opposed to cities and shopping. Clean budget motel about half way?

    • Hostel accommodation

      Austin Nov 11, 2016 at 2:12 PM

      Hi all, this will be the 2nd time I've been to Austin. I would like a hostel that is located near/nearish where the main nightlife is. I like 6th Street, Rainy St & West Street (I think thats correct). So far it seems 'Firehouse hostel' is my best bet re: location. Is this right? or are there any other options?
      Many thanks

    • Vehicle crossing into US

      Laredo Aug 25, 2016 at 9:04 PM

      I would like to take a Mexican car into the US at the Laredo border crossing. What paperwork do I need to complete? Any handy hints? The car is not currently registered and is for export from Galveston within 30 days of crossing into the US, which I think is OK under the US temporary import rules.

      Also, can I hire a trailer and car in the US and cross into Mexico and back out again to the US, or is this just asking for a world of hurt? I'm not even sure US hire companies would even allow their cars to exit the country, even temporarily!

    • Is it safe to walk round Dallas Downtown

      Dallas Apr 29, 2016 at 12:40 AM

      Hi My friend and I are coming to Dallas in 2 weeks and we are staying on Elm Street, I have googled some bars close to our hotel such the Iron Cactus and the Press Box. It says its a 7 minute walk from our hotel, now we are coming from England and live in a City and do walk about of an evening. But I was wondering how safe it is for 2 women to walk back to their hotel from Main St to Elm St on their own late evening. Would it be safer to get an Uber home?
      Thanks in advance

      small trip ideas

      Dallas Apr 28, 2016 at 3:47 PM

      i am asking this on behave of my elderly parents(quite fit though)-- they will be going to little elm, texas in May to visit relatives for two weeks-- i am thinking that a small trip away in that time might be a good idea for them.They dont want to put out the relatives too much with trips out and about -- can anyone tell me about public transport out of little elm --buses/trains to anywhere interesting ?
      I was also thinking that there might be a short bus trip tour from dallas to san antonio or somewhere else interesting -- just lasting up to 4 days or so.As i said they are quite fit so lots of walking would be okay-- but not very confident in another country(from Australia)-- thank you

    • Texans game

      Houston Apr 23, 2016 at 10:48 AM

      Going to chargers/Texans game late November. Should I stay near stadium or downtown? If downtown what area?

      I'm in my 40's traveling with buddy. We like to cab it from airport when we can because we like to drink during our stay and don't want to drive. Hou airport seems close enough to go that route. Sometimes we pick a hotel in walking distance to stadium but if downtown us better scene we would go that route instead. Prefer nice hotels with amenities like bar, restaurant, fitness center, etc. 3+ stars would be preferable.

      If you recommended downtown what part? Seems to be rather spread out. If downtown would like a place close to public transportation to game. What form would you recommend for getting to game? Train, bus, cab?

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      Temperature in Texas/South-East in the spring?

      Texas Dec 30, 2015 at 8:48 AM

      Hi there! I am planning my second road trip in the US, which me and my travel buddy are thinking about doing either in march/april or in april/may this year (I am doing all the planing, he kinda just tags along and trusts my decision). So I am wondering which one of these two alternatives are the best to do, considering the temperatures and the amount of tourist? (We are not too fund of a bunch of tourists..).

      I would prefer it not to be too hot (I've heard there's quite a bit of humidity in the south), but we don't want to be walking around in jackets and sweaters either.


      The route we are planing on doing is starting in Houston, TX, then drive through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, along the Florida Coastline down to Orlando, before taking the coastal road up to Myrtle Beach, where we'll be spending 3-4+ nights before hopping on the plane and head back home again.


      Also tips about do's and don'ts will be welcomed! The route isn't set in stone yet, changes can be done if any one has got any super tips about another/the route, it will be considered as well!


      Thanks! laugh
