I'm planning to drive from Marseille, France to Tours (Loire Valley) later this fall. Drivealive.com shows it to be about 450 miles and should take about 6.5 hours. That seems optimistic to average 70+ miles per hour over mountainous roads and through several towns and cities. Has anyone done something like this who can comment on what the time is likely to be? I'd appreciate any help for my planning.
Does anyone have recent experience of car camping in Sicily ?
Any advice on sites you enjoyed and sites to miss.
Also cost of camping at the site would be helpful.
We (2 persons) will be driving from the north in a small car and using a small 2 person tent.
We plan on being there in May/June time.
Any help will be appreciated.
I plan to go to Myanmar in August. I would like to fly from Kunming to Mandalay and leave the country from Yangon to Bangkok. Is this possible or do I have to enter and leave the country from the same city? I kind of read something like that, but can't remember where I found this information.
Thanks a lot!
yesterday I was taking the bus from siem reap to bangkok (the trip was $10, and absolutely awful) and just before i walked through the thai immigration, I saw a beggar on the street.
I think he was a victim of a napalm bomb. his face had been burnt off- he had no eye brows or eyelids, just eyeballs sticking out of his face. the cartilage of his nose wasn't there- he only had slits where they used to be as nostrils. likewise, his mouth was just a gaping slit without lips. you can't miss him.
My strange request: if anybody is travelling the same way, could they take a photo of him and send it to me? I know it sounds silly but for me, this guy gave me the strongest impression and memory of all my travels in Cambodia. Watching this guy gingerly pick up the 5 usd note I left him, and hold it out for a few seconds staring at it before he recognised what it was, was just everything i... more »

I am not sure how up-to-date this website is, but perhaps some of you will find the timetables useful:
I came across this article by coincidence and wonder whether anybody has any further information on it since i can't find anything on the offical park page or other sources:
The article basically states that Khao Yai introduced or at least plans to introduce a limit of visitors (whatever that limit may be) and that private cars can no longer be taken into the huge park in favor of electric cars provided by the park (whatever they may cost or how the logistics work). We plan to visit Khao Yai in march for a couple of days, but with uncertain means of transport and the knowledge that you might be sent back at the gate it's maybe no longer the best choice for a family visit.

Just trying to book some accomodation over the holidays in Roatan. I don't mind basic but we would like to stay somewhere SAFE.
we are deciding between a few:
Roatan B&B, my concern is the dark road at night from town towards the forest
West Bay B&B.
your feedback or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
this summer during our holiday in Iceland, I am going to propose to my girlfriend.
For this reason I want to arrange a big firework display for her.
As I won't be able to do so myself - and certainly not take the firework stuff secretly with me in the plane - I could use some help finding a provider in advance.
I am thankful for any helpful comment.
So, Alexandria Library has a very very strange policy regarding bags.
You can walk in with cameras, wallets, bottles of water, the kitchen sink..... but not in a bag. Of any size.
I recommend you carry a pashmina with you so you can check in your bag (outside) and throw everything into a sling.
Silly non-sensical policy that it is!
Oh, and it seems to be opening at 11am now.
I’ll be in Europe this summer for about 3 months and i’m planning on buying an iPad to bring with me on my journey. I read in a book (I was browsing) that when you buy train tickets from a rail company’s website, you can send the tickets to your smartphone … and the same goes with buying tickets online for sites like the Eiffel Tower etc. (which is great for helping you avoid long lines at popular attractions) … so you don’t need to actually print the tickets because they can simply scan the barcodes off your device.
So my question is: Have any of you used an iPhone or iPad in Europe and successfully scanned tickets that you’ve bought online for either trains or for admission to various sites/attractions? I’m wondering … if this works for an iPhone, does that mean it will work for an iPad as well?
