This summer my husband and I will be backpacking around Central Europe (Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, and back to Austria). Our plane tickets are booked from July 2nd to September 5th, which gives us a little over 2 months.
My interests include ancient sites, architecture, and art, while my husband enjoys the outdoors and relaxing. I've tried to mix the two, and while it seems like a lot, the only place I think I will feel rushed is in Greece, but I'm ok with that. It is worth it to me to be able to see all the sites. We are both young and athletic.
We are flying into and out of Vienna and plan on using public transport, staying in hostels and camping, and eating like locals.
I have already subtracted the time spent for traveling, so these times are for purely exploring the cities.
Please let me know if... more »
Maybe somebody knows or maybe even the mods can help (if they have the time for). There are members here who, after the last reopening of TT cannot write in here even if they used their old and new account. A second question: Why I need to sign in each time I open this site?
Thanks for any help.
Cuban tourism and its future challenges

HAVANA â€“ The emblematic beach at Varadero, Cuba's premier resort, hosted the 33rd International Tourism Fair (FitCuba2013) May 7 to 11. The grand event, at the Plaza AmÃ©rica Convention Center, featured Brazil as its guest country and invited representatives from 53 countries to its 40 display stands.
Present were tour operators, airline officials, and more than 100 journalists and tourism specialists, among them several tourism ministers. The presence of Brazil's Tourism Minister GastÃ£o Vieira should be highlighted.
The event, more than just a routine annual event, has become a gauge that allows us to predict the future of Cuba's tourism sector, successfully managed during the 1990s after the collapse of the Eastern Bloc and the arrival of th... more »

I'm leasing a car through Renault USA for about 160 days and driving through Europe. Since I'm insanely spur of the moment spontaneous type, I haven't developed a detailed itinerary. I'm picking up the car on Jul 17th in Paris and returning it Dec 20th at the same spot. Now, from Paris I can make my way north towards Poland and then go south towards the mediterranean or I can go south first and head down to Spain/Portugal. I'd like to be able to cover Italy, Spain, Greece, Croatia, Austria, and Turkey at the very least. Your opinions and suggestions are appreciated.
I'm looking for some advice - I want to go from Valencia to Carcasonne the quickest, most comfortable way possible. I want to leave Valencia on a sat morning and get to Carcasonne as son as I can the same day. Ive done a bit of research and flight don't seems to work. Train from Valencia to Narbonne seems to be the best option and then change train to get from Narbonne to Carcasonne. I don't fancy the bus for such a long trip but maybe from Narbonne to Carcasonne if times were better - I cant seem to find a bus from Narbonne to Carcasonne.
Hey all, wanted to ask for some tips in planning my trip. Before someone tells me it's a lot in 2 weeks, please know that the ticket is already purchased (it was much cheaper) and we will have to deal with it.

Finally doing a trip of a lifetime..having spent 9 months in the himalayas over twenty years ago now I am taking my daughter out to show how the wonders (and sometimes pains) of India. We travelling on a budget unfortunately and was wondering wethar its worth taking a laptop. My daughter would like to start blogging and posting pictures so would like toknow wethar wifi is available in budget accomodation. Were possibly travelling up from Amritsar to Srinigar-Leh-Manali-Dharamsala-Delhi. Or would it just be better to use the internet cafes?
And is it possible to do Independent treks up in Ladakh or Spitti? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Planning to camp our way all across Quebec from Gatineau to Labrador City. I have the regional tourist guides from the Province of Quebec and have been on their camping website too.
But I am confused. They have a 5-star ranking system, but it doesn't really answer the question that is most important to us - and that's "What's the mood of this campground". I'm feeling that a Quebec '5-star' campground means more 'amenities' (and noise) and less nature and quiet. But maybe I'm wrong?
In the USA, we can look for 'public' rather than 'private' and that pretty much eliminates the places with mini-golf, playgrounds, and so on.
But in Quebec?
Not for me, but for a younger relative, who is thinking of being a English teaching assistant in China for a few months during her gap year.
Does anyone have information about this? I think her family would prefer something organised and legit - does the British Council or similar organisations do anything like that? I'm concerned about private companies who will charge a large fee, and then basically stick her in a class or 40+ kids as the actual teacher rather than the assistant.
So, if anyone has done this type of job, or has any extra information it would be appreciated.
