I'm going to Jordan for a week to ten days in March. Firstly, I am interested to hear what length of trip people recommend. I am mainly interested in hiking. I'd like to spend a while in Wadi Rum and at Petra. I'm also interested to know if anyone else who is going around the 5th -15th March would be interested in car-sharing and hiking together.
I saw a reportage some weeks ago about a meeting where people wear fancy hats somewhere in a castle in Bayern, I think.
however, I didn't write the name of the place (it took place during the summer)
would someone know the place of this event.
My wife and are going to take a pre-baby "honeymoon" trip to Antigua in January. We are not used to sitting and relaxing but are going to try our best to take those days to not run around like maniacs like we normally do. Anyone have affordable places to stay that are not in a resort? Also, are there traditional dishes to Antigua that we can look for?
Im traveling from Merida to Maracaibo next week to get a bus in to Colombia. I had planned to stop just in the two cities, but I was wondering if there are any places in between that are easy to access and worth taking a day or two to visit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Viajo de Merida a Maracaibo la otra semana para luego seguir a COlombia. Iba pararme no màs en las dos ciuadades, pero quiesiera saber sa hay sitios en el camino que valen la pena hacer una escalita. Les agredezco cualquier ayuda.
One of our connections in Andalucia in May is from Arcos de la Frontera to Olvera by bus (with bikes underneath). If we take a mid-morning bus, we can make a 4 hour layover partway (just to see another village). The options for layover are Bornos, Villamartin, Algodonales or Puerto Serrano (may be there briefly another day - cycling the Via Verde from Olvera), We would have time to cycle just a bit outside the village as well, if that would be worthwhile. They all have a mid-afternoon bus to Olvera. If you had just 4 hours in one of these villages, which would you choose and why?
I have been fighting for several months for compensation from Iberia Airlines (my candidate for world's worst airline) due to their improperly refusing to let me board a flight. I finally gave up talking to them and filed a complaint with the Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aerea. It has been over six weeks since I received notice that they had requested a report from Iberia. Does anyone have experience with filing such a complaint? Isn't this a long time to wait for a response? Am I wasting my time?
Thanks for any help you can give.
As part of our holiday in May, we plan to spend four nights in Vicenza, Padova or Verona and have day trips to see the others (and possibly Mantova or Bassano del Grappa as well). We realise that that doesn't give us a lot of time in each and we may in fact not end of seeing all of these towns. We're not expecting an in-depth experience. Note that we are visiting Venice separately.
I'm interested in your opinion as to which would be the most appealing town to base ourselves in. And any comments about the towns would also be appreciated. I've got the guidebooks out and will read through them in the coming weeks.
I've been traveling around Vietnam for 3 weeks and am now hooked on South East Asia, I love everything about Vietnam but I've a funny feeling both Laos and Cambodia will have their own beauty and would be good to explore.
I know this is an open ended questions but would you suggest Laos or Cambodia to travel to for 2/3 weeks?
I love the outdoors and would prefer to be in the country talking to the locals and then just spend 2 days max in a city.
I would really appreciate it if you had some suggestions! :)
If anyone needs any tips/ideas re travel in Vietnam - please ask me!
Thank you :)
