I'll be in the states this winter and i got a few questions.
I'm not looking for any kind of tourism stuff, just some info about the airport in Philadelphia.
My problem is, i'll arrive at Terminal A and the connecting flight goes from Terminal B.
I googled it but didnt find anything that could help me.
So i'd like to get some info about directions or ways to get from A to B, cause i've found something
about some kind of Shuttle-service but also read that it takes quite some time.
I'll be there for two hours between flights and well, i like to plan things ahead so that i wont
have to worry about it later.
The next thing is, i'm not so sure about the baggage. I traveled by plane quite a few times already
but never had a connecting flight from the same airport so i honestly dont know if i have to pick up my stuff
and check it in again for the connecting flight since ... more »
In August, I went on a road trip from Alaska to Florida. Since BlogSherpa is down, I thought I would share my blog in this forum!
We would love to hear any feedback which may be helpful as we shape the blog for other adventures!
I believe someone just recently posted an inquiry about seeing lava flow at Volcanoes National Park (The Big Island, Hawaii) and until a few days ago, it had been nearly a year since active flow could be seen.
However it appears the lava-drought has ended and if anyone has been planning a trip in the near future to TBI, you are in luck. I personally am sad cause I just returned from there 2 weeks ago so just missed the show. I am sure the best views are via helicopter, perhaps by boat if they are being allowed.
Here's a link with some details:
I am planning a driving trip from San Francisco to The University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in December. I would like to break the drive up into 2 days. What is the best place to stop midway for an overnight going and returning? Should I take I-5 the entire route or will I miss a lot of scenery that route?
I've read through as many previous questions relating to tourist visas however couldn't find any information relating to my issue.
I am travelling to the US for a holiday next year, however believe that I am unable to under the visa waiver programme.
Around 6/7 years ago I was arrested for what I believe was a Section 5 public order offence (possibly drunk and disorderly). I have received my certificate from ACPO and this states 'no trace' - meaning that I have no convictions, warnings etc on record on the PNC. I know however that I was given a fixed penalty fine after spending the night in the cells.
I understand that the embassy website says th... more »
Just booked our holiday of a life time to the USA, leaving the U.K in October 2013
Looking for some help in the transportation department, What is the best way to travel in the U.S?
We don't want to rent a car!! so what are the other forms of transport that would get us around the cities we are visiting
we are spending 5 nights in New York (time square area)
4 nights in San Francisco ( union square area)
4 nights in L.A (hollywood area)
4 nights in Vegas (on the strip)
so my questions are: what are the costs?
is it better by bus or taxi or subway?
what is it like to travel on public transport in the U.S?
would we be able to get to most tourist destinations via public transport?

Planning to to Seattle - LA next year Sep/Oct. 14 guys, all around 30.
- Want to visit a few places on the way that are good for (i) adventure (trekking, kayak, caves, biking) (ii) surfing/beach (iii) party towns (could be 'just' SF but also a cool festival).
- We'd want to rent a few big vans and self drive and would probably pre book accommodation as it's a large group.
- We'd prefer to avid tourist traps and rather do as much off the beaten track as possible. Don't want to drive every day, so we'd love to stick to 4 or 5 places as a base.
- Trip just needs to be epic...
Where (not) to go?
Hi everyone my girlfriend and I are planning a trip to the US in June 2013. I have already done the east coast, west coast and grand canyon area roadtrips. So I wanted us to do something different. We have 14 days and the plan so far is this:
Chicago (2 days) I like to see the building and she wants to shop
Memphis or Nashville ? (1 night)
New Orleans ( how much time would you need?)
Houston or the Texas coastline (we want some sun and beaches)
( we will fly back to chicago and home)
Is there any scenic roads and is there any sites that we can't miss?
I'm a student from Singapore who's going to Montreal on exchange this coming semester. I'm planning to take a plane to New York and spend a few days there before taking the Amtrak rail to Montreal. Problem is apparently they don't allow checked baggage service on the train and their carry-on baggage restrictions is quite tight; and I have quite a lot of baggage with me as it usually the case for exchange students. So what should I do?
I and my girlfriend are gonna go to Boston for 28/12 to 01/01.
Where can we celebrate New Year? Not so expensive, up to $200 per person. Maybe night club for 23-27 years old?
Thanks a lot!
I am a British citizen who has a girlfriend in the states.
I met her in October 2011 whilst I was working on a H2B visa as a soccer coach in Chicago. We spent little more than a month together before I had to leave. I left for Australia to visit family before returning to the UK and by way of huge coincidence, she was in Melbourne at the exact same time as me so we got another month together. Then after a long and grueling 9 months apart, I have finally, just got back to the states to see her again. I quit my job, put nearly 2 grand in to the trip and am halfway in to my 2 month stay with her. I am currently on an ESTA visa and have no intention of working here but now I'm back with this girl, I can't be without her.
My issue is this; As I went through customs and immigration on this visit, the intended length of stay (2 months) raised concerns and I was taken to secondary screening... more »
I'm helping a friend plan a surprise getaway for his wife's 30th birthday and we're looking to do a couples trip up to wine country. The women are fans of wine but are not technical connoisseurs so we aren't looking for any advanced tastings, just some casual fun. We chose wine country because of the scenery and for something different than what we're use to here in Southern California. We'd like an area with some vineyards nearby but don't plan on having that be the basis of the journey. We're definitely interested in nightlife, maybe some dancing for the ladies, and any ole' rag with cold beer is good for the guys. For daylight activities, some casual wine rooms and/or vineyards along with some shopping and good eats ought to cover anything the girls would like to do.
This is what I've gathered from my research, let me know if I'm off base.

I would like to know which stopover is more preferable in the SIN-NYC route and which airline is better...
British Airways Business Class
After 3.45HR Connection,
Also British Airways
Singapore Airlines Business Class
3HR Connection then,
Which airline's business class is better?
And which airport is more preferable?
Are there any other routes(not one way, etc.SIN-CDG-NYC or SIN-AMS-NYC?)
How is the value for price?
Will the connection time be enough for the check-in?
Hi Friendly LP folks,
Calling all those familiar with Yellowstone in winter....some friends and I are planning on taking a 10-day backpacking+xcountry ski trip through yellowstone. We're more familiar with wintry conditions in NH's White mountains (Mt. Washington area), and are familiar hiking in zero farenheit temps.
What we are not as familiar with is Yellowstone! Given our dates, it appears the roads into the park are closed. So, our general idea was to drive to fly from the east coast to SLC, rent a car, head to the park, and trek on out via skis and week-long camping packs.
We'd like to see some wildlife, some landmarks of the park, and enjoy tackling some elevation gain for the sheer fun of it, and for the views.
