For the past 2 years I've had the pleasure to canoe and portage in Algonquin Park. I really like the idea of this kind of an outdoor trip. I'm currently looking for a good outdoor trip idea for this upcoming summer. I would like it if there weren't too many people around (like in the interior of Algonquin). Basically I'm looking for a relatively secluded place where we could hike and/or canoe/portage with unforgettable scenery in Ontario or Southern Quebec. Preferably, if canoeing is involved I would like the canoe rental service to be available at our starting point (we don't have a canoe or a rack for the car).
Thanks to everyone for your help!
Please be warned that travelling by bus between Arequipa and Lima is posible but will have delays. There is a point 4 hours from Arequipa called Pescaderos where police will block the road in the early mornings due to high water level. Water will enter the bus so make sure your belongings are not on the floor but on your lap or in the overhead compartment! Yesterday the bus of Cial got stuck and swept sideways by the current,Passengers were ferried out by JCB and then the bus was pulled free after 2 hours. Traffic is very slow and hundreds of cars waiting on both sides is a normal sight at the moment.

Me and my Boyfriend are going to Morocco for three weeks very soon, from Feb 18th to March 10th.
We just have a rough plan- to start in Marrakech and head South, visiting towns and villages on the Atlantic Coast (Sidi Ifni, Mirleft, maybe Taghazout). We also want to go to the Ameln Valley and see Tafraoute, rent some bikes and spend a few days cycling around this area. We want to see the almond bolossom. I think we will visit Taroudannt too. And maybe head back to Marrakech via the Dades Valley. Although I've read quite a lot about South Morocco and the Anti Atlas we haven't actually planned a route yet. We will be travelling on a budget- by grand taxi and bus.
Anyway, I have three questions about the trip.
The first is that we thought it would be fun to cook a bit whilst we are there. And that that might also save us some money. But of course we can't take camp... more »
My husband and I are travelling to Nadi on 19 Feb for a week, and hoping to visit some of the nearby islands. I know the airport is open, but can anyone tell me the state of Nadi Town itself since the flooding, the shops, restaurants, tourist places? Is the water subsided and things back to normal? It is very difficult to get up to date information, but I can see it's still raining there. Also, are the tourist operators still running day trips to the islands, I believe they stopped them for a few days during the height of the floods? Thanks! Denise
What is the best way to get from Mount Manganui by public transport from where cruise ships dock in Tauranga?
I have emailed the local tourist authority, but they haven't replied.
Can someone can help?
I used to buy cotton material at Khadi in Delhi, to make kurta and salwar, but Khadi has become costly.
Can you suggest some shop and its location with reasonable price , I need 2 sets. Better ask for which bazaar sells material clothing and its location.
I'll be going to Prague early March and have been scouting for suitable accomodation. We've decided to stay at Old Town, since that's where most of the attractions are? It's a budget trip so I was quite happy to have found this accomodation, Jilska Apartment at http://www.citybreaksprague.com/index.html
The thing is, for a 3 night stay the price quoted via email is about 42 euros for a whole apartment. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this accomodation before? It seems a bit too good to be true?
Thanks for any help!
I just wanted to double check if there are REGULAR buses to and from Jinka to either Yabelo or at least Arba Minch...
I am on my way down to the Moyale border and wanted to see the market in Jinka for a day... but can't risk getting stuck there (something I heard from many people visiting Omo region but I think Jinka might be easier?).
Thanks for your help.. :)
I did search some other threads for information but still didn't really get a clear answer.
I'm arriving in Tokyo 24th of March, and figured out that given our plans (return Tokyo to Kyoto, day trips, etc) it makes more sense for us to get a 7 day JR pass.
I live in Melbourne Aus, and in 2 weeks I'm out of here.. So was wondering how is best to get this pass.
Do I buy it online and print a ticket then take that to the JR office at a station/Narita airport when we arrive?
Can I buy it just on arrival at Narita airport on the spot?
Hats the easiest way to go about it.. Just don't want to leave it too late and potentially miss out..
Thanks in advance!
I'll be arriving (mid to late afternoon) at the international airport in Managua and want to go straight to Grenada.
What is the safest and easiest way to do this without having to go into Managua?
If suggestion is by taxi, are there "safer" taxis than others?
I have been to Mexico City and we took a safer taxi that we prepaid before leaving the terminal.
Wondering if Managua has anything similar.
my friends and i have paid for 5 nights in salvador for carnival. this being our first and possibly only carnival experience, we want to be able to relax and cut loose with the partying. unfortunately due to the current situation in salvador we feel that its not possible to fully enjoy ourselves there. apart from rio due to most places being booked out and above our budget seem we might already forfeit a large sum to the hostel in salvador, are there any other places that will be enjoyable for carnivale. colombia was our next destination, are there any good week long parties there.
