If Istanbul is not the easiest city to discover and explore than I don't know what is. Its like a blend of Paris and Rome for me, and my wife and I enjoyed the city's offerings so much, we never left, yes, 10 days of eating, drinking, shopping, museums, churches, mosques, ferries, trains, taxi's and always a nice sweet dessert and tea or coffee to relax with. The rich culture, long history, and friendly locals, make Istanbul one the best cities we have visited, and we will return to Turkey in the warm months for more exploration along the coast, and also ruins and natural wonders.
We arrived from Chicago on a Swiss Air flight via Zurich, we bought for $511PP R/T, returning on Lufthansa via Munich. That was a steal, and it was over the American holiday weekend of Thanksgiving as well. We stayed at 3 different Hotels, though all on managed by the same people. The first 3 nights we h... more »

I am travelling solo and I am not too tight on budget, the most important thing for me being the reputation of the agency.
For the moment I have received a quote from an agency for $886 (1 person solo) which sounds quite a lot. What do you think? Any good agency/guide to recommend?

5 years ago I bought 400 postcards from Australia Post. They were pre-stamped and had lovely pictures of Australian wildlife on them. I couldn't buy them online but had someone purchase them for me, so that when I arrived a month later with 20 students, we were able to pick them up and send them off (we used this as a money-raiser for our student exchange trip). Does anyone know if they are still available? Once again, I can find nothing online! They were around $1.50 each I believe. Anyone know about this? Comments much appreciated.
I am planning to hike in the Simien Mountains (5 days / 4 nights) with the trek beginning morning of Dec 15. I'm traveling solo. Anyone already doing this who would welcome me to their group? Or would like to form a group?

I'm going to Argentina at the end of the month and will be spending about a week in Buenos Aires to start.
I'm confused about this blue market thing...I've read a bit about it but I'm trying to figure out if there's a reliable way I can exchange my money for the better blue market rate. I don't speak much Spanish and am not familiar with the currency so I don't want to do anything too risky.
Does anyone have any advice on where to go to change my money safely at blue market rates?
Could you recommend me a place to stay in central Siem Reap while volunteering there for 2 weeks? I'm fine with a clean and nice dorm room, but would like to avoid the party places and rather go for more peaceful options. Thanks in advance.
It was strange. This wasn't in the city where it's busy and crazy. This was about 8 miles south just north of the lake. It's where they are building that 2 lane divided road. Only one side is really being used right now. The other side has barricades to keep cars and buses from going in. So I picked that side to bike on. The road was basically empty. I was riding on the right side and I hear this motorcycle coming up behind me. Then out of the corner of my eye I see him right before he hits me. I thought I was going to go down but I ended up bumping into the divider which held me up. I turn around and the motorcyclist is down. I ask if he's OK. He doesn't respond as he gets back up. His buddy is there by that point and yells at him. The motorcyclist then says "sorry" to me. I ask if he's OK again. He's buddy asks if I'm "good". I say I'm fine. I ask him if his frien... more »
My boyfriend and I are going to Honduras in Feb, and we have some friends who are coming to meet us for a week. They are flying into San Pedro Sula and want to leave straight from the airport by bus to La Ceiba. So basically my question is...
Is there a bus line that travels directly from San Pedro Sula to La Ceiba and vise versa?
