The serial blast which occurred in Mahabodhi temple in Gaya today is a frame of shame to all of us. We should think and do some needful through Tourism keeping in mind that " TOURISM FOR UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD - STOP TERRORISM AND SPREAD TOURISM" Hope all we can think a better tomorrow for us and for our next generation through TOURISM...
We are a group of 4 (2 man, 2 women) that went to UAE (4 days), Yemen (9days) and Oman (days). We traveled from May 10th until June 2nd. Here is the trip report for the Oman portion. Please see other forums for the others countries report.
We hired a Landcruiser and went directly to Nizwa to have a good night sleep as we had an overnight in Duabi airport on our way from Sana'a. Before going to bed early, we visited Nizwa fort. We slept at Maja guesthouse, it was clean and reasonably priced for Oman standard. (all hotel in Oman have excessive price.) The next day, we drove to the rim of Jebel sham. All way up there are spectacular landscape, and at the rim, standing at the edge of a one kilometer cliff, it's quite something amazing and scary at the same time. We then headed our way toward Masirah island and stopped at Mahout Guesthouse since it was late. Huge mista... more »
I'm planning a trip and I'll go from Liverpool to Dublin, the only thing is, I'm not quite sure how I'm going to do that. Do any of you have done this or have an idea of a cheap way to do it, wether it is by train, bus, ferry, airplane, whatever ? Thank you !
have read earlier posts about car rentals, but didn't get a clear picture of whether or not this is a good idea...traveling in September and wanting to rent a car after visiting fes, to go to erg chebbie and then through the high atlas mountains ending the car rental at Marrakech. and what's the insurance situation--can I just make sure I have coverage with my own insurance or do I need to, or is it required to, purchase some kind of local insurance?
I am a volueer English teacher here in Trongsa, Bhutan. A recent lightening storm blew up my MacBook 85w MagSafe power adaptor. It cannot be fixed and finding a replacement here is almost impossible.
Is anyone coming this way who may be able to bring one my way?
Thanks in advance -
We would like to organize a private jeep tour from San Pedro de Atacama in Chile to the salt flats of Uyuni at the end of month, specifically July 29/30 to August 1/2. Tours are usually of 4 days. We are already a party of 2 (male, female in our 30's, not a couple) and are looking for another 2 (or more) to join to offset jeep costs and possibly have a larger group to enter Bolivia (safer?). We are flexible as to which language is spoken.
Please reply to thread if interested.
Hello... we - a family with two kids aged 6 and 8 - will be driving from Gdansk to Riga late July/early august. We'll be entring Latvia on the coastal road going north from Klaipeda, heading for Liepaja. Then we have five days to spend in Latvia, and are basically looking for suggestions for fun stuff to do/go with the children... e.g. zoos, water parks, tivolis, good beaches, etc, primarily in the southern parts (south of Riga). Any pointers appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

FYI: there are shops in the backpacker areas of Hanoi and Saigon that sell new guide books for $5.00 and upwards. These guidebooks are identical to guidebooks published by a very well known publisher. The only difference is that the photographs are not in colour, only black and white. In every other respect (except the price), the guidebooks are identical.
Hi, Two of us female 60-somethings, seasoned world travelers are looking to find a great Ugandan tour and share it with others for more fun and cost-savings both. We're interested in gorillas, chimps, wildlife, birds, trekking, mountains and water, tribal culture, ethnic music and dance, handicraft-making, eco-travel and wilderness sites....less so in bungee jumping, white water rafting, and too much time in cities. Hoping to find and share a great budget-minded trip with a great guide. Any hints, tips or interest in joining? Our window is 9/6/13 - 9/21/13; hoping to share 1 to 2 weeks....
Hope to hear possibilities!

We plan to travel the Copper Canyon next April. I've always travelled budget and always felt that I'd not enjoy more expensive travel any more. Ok I'm now 60 years old but still physically very active (still think I'm 25) so I want to get off the train here and there at any place that takes my fancy when I'm there and stay for as long as I feel and do what seems a good idea at the time.
Going through some websites suggest that doing that sort of thing wouldn't be wise there, but others give me the idea that it'd be fine. That's what I want to hear but am I being realistic? I did a lot of "shoestring" travelling in Asia back in the seventies and to some extent I actually did that in Russia (Siberia) in 2005 although somewhat restricted by the visa.
I guess I want to know from younger more recently experienced travellers what is available to suit my tastes in the Copper Canyon of M... more »
We would like to spend a day in the Geiranger fjord. Could you please tell us how to get there from Oslo or Bergen by public transportation?
Is is possible to take a domestic flight (round trip), then a bus, and finally a cruise on the fjord? We would like to do all this in one day, and return to either Oslo or Bergen in the evening.
What is the nearest airport? How can we book and find out about schedule and fares?
Thanks a lot for your efforts> :)
