China is on the cards again but this time for only 8 weeks, starting in very early April and finishing early June.
We want to see Xian on the way and finish the trip in Beijing but don't know the start point. Guilin or Chongqing?
This is all assuming we'll get a 2 month visa in Perth come January.
The hills are many and long, and think the weather should be on our side by heading north.
Is it too much?
Sorry for the broad question, but we are hoping to travel this November with our 15 month old and I am pregnant.
We're hoping to choose a location that is:
1) reachable by a reasonably short flight, we live in the east
2) mostly non malarial
3) safe (relative, I know)
4) has some culture
5) and some nature
6) and is pretty quiet
We're open to beaches, cities, mountains, hot, cold, really anything. We've traveled in the past but mostly very far away and never abroad with kids. Does anyone have any ideas? I'd be so grateful for your opinions. Thanks much!!
Mama and Papaboutworld arrive for their annual trip to see me on Friday 31st August - Monday 17th August 2012. I'm currently working in Kuala Lumpur and will be off work for the entire time except from Friday 7th (evening)and Saturday 8th (morning till evening). when I unfortunately must be in KL.
I've been in Malaysia a while now but would rather appreciate anyone's handy tips and offerings on where they have been and how good it was etc. I want them to have a holiday to remember.
Last year Mama and Papaboutworld got hauled around Indonesia for 2 weeks straight (Jakarta - Flores - Gili - Bali - home), sleeping on boat floors and such like and although they had a lovely time I think a slower pace is required this time.
This will be their second time to Asia. Papaboutworld has been to the US but apart from that it's usually somewhere safe in Europ... more »
I am a recently college graduate with a BA in English Creative Writing and am wanting to teach English abroad, but I am curious about a few items.
First, do I need any certification outside of my English Degree, if not, will additional certification be redundant, or act as resume padding, allowing me to find better jobs?
Second, I have a felony drug conviction on my record. I was arrested 5 years ago, convicted 4 years ago, and finished my supervision and drug classes 3 years ago. Since I was arrested, I have gone back to school and graduated with honors. I have not been convicted of a crime, not event a parking ticket, since that time. How will this effect my employment opportunities? Are there ways to mitigate the stigma that comes along with this conviction? Will gaining more certification help my cause?
Third, my girlfriend recently bought a groupon for an online accredi... more »

Part of the evolution of the English language? Or just a stunt?
I'm 27/f and will be traveling solo to SOMEWHERE in May/June 2012. I've got 2-4 weeks. I'm looking for suggestions on where to go for roughly 3000 USD. I'm a beginning photographer and want to go somewhere to practice. A combination of outstanding nature and culture would be ideal. Somewhere where English is widely spoken, although I can get by in Spanish too.
If I can find a guided group tour, I would love to consider some place where English is not spoken.
I am an environmental scientist so I geek out with volcanoes and things like that. I am also down to rough it, camp, whatever. I would like to do a moderate amount of physical activity. Safety of course is a mild concern since I am traveling alone.
Some places I have considered are Iceland, Mongolia, Peru, Ireland...If I were to go to Iceland I would probably check out Ireland too since I would be so clo... more »
I'm a single parent to 5 and 6 year old children. I am selling my house, and will have about £25,000 (and an income of £400 a month on top of this) and want to take my children travelling for about 6 months.
I have travelled around the UK with the children, and from the UK into France/Belgium using trains/buses and planes. I am new to travelling, but not new to being a single parent, so managing on my own with two children doesn't worry me from a practical point of view. We often travel around the UK for time away, with a few changes of clothes and some colouring books
I'm looking for some advice from other people who have travelled with their children. Where have you been? Did you have much experience of travelling before you went?
I am planning on a train/ferry trip over to Germany with backpacks and the bare minimum to see how we get on, before I set off. I am a... more »
We are planning to travel to Egypt in Dcember for 3-4 weeks with two kids (1,5 and 4 years old). What is the security situation on the roads and in the places like Luxor and Abu Simbel?
We want to go south from Cairo to Aswan by train and then back by bus stopping in a few places.
Ho wabout renting a car with a driver in Egypt? Is it expensive?
Thank a lot,
I've been lead to believe that several major airports are always trying to sell the last couple of seats on flights all over the world for absolute rock-bottom prices. I can't find anything on Google so can anyone confirm, please?
I'm planning a six month trip and am toying with the idea of just turning up up at LHR/LGW with a backpack and buying a last-minute ticket to a tropical destination... Is this feasible?

I am going South East Asia for 6 months next April but there may, or may not, be a family commitment (which grandad is expected to attend) if on the extreamly unlikely event I decide to come home early (UK) can I change my ticket without too much stress or do I have to buy another ticket, thanks J.
Hello just looking for advice on traveling to the Domincan with my 8 month old. Will she need bug repellant? Will the water at the resort be safe to bathe her in? Are the kiddie pools safe for her to swim in as far as the chlorine content? Any advice will be helpful! She is eating few solids and drinking breast milk only. Not sure how or if I'm going to continue to make her food while I'm there or take some ready-made jar food.
