Messages: 252 - Threads: 98
hi guys, please checkout my latest travel blog
I am kind of new to the Lonely Planet community, but I wanted to pass along our new travel blog call Wheels Up In 30. It is geared towards adventurous travelers who use wheelchairs. Please pass it along to anyone you think might benefit from seeing it!
Wheels Up In 30!
Finally received my passport in the mail. I'm ready to get out of the country so I've been looking at travel blogs to see what would be appealing to my eye. There are so many choices. I slipped and fell on this site called culturalxchangegroup.com (don't know how LOL). But they had some interesting activities on there. I think the Costa Rica zipline sounded awesome so I'm looking for prices on how to get to Costa Rica and zipline throught the "jungle" LOL.
At this link you can see the new Royal Caribbean room service menu http://www.shipcruise.org/royal-caribbean-menu-room-service/ and also the new food menu in the main dining rooms on Royal Caribbean ships. RCL started the implementation of their new menu in August 2012 with the Freedom of the Seas, and now only 3 ships still operate with the old menu. The new menu has some strange but interesting options - some complimentary, some cost extra. Complimentary alternative options (available each day of the cruise) are the "Chef’s Inspiration" and the "Classics", and at additional charge are the dishes from the "Celebrate Cravings" - lobster $25, surf and turf $35 and steak for $15. And this is the link to the Royal Caribbean bar menu prices http://www.shipcruise.org/royal-caribbean-alcohol-policy-drink-prices/ (the cocktail menu) if you are interested in how much are the Royal Caribbean ... more »
If I'd realised this was here during my trip to Laos I'd have copied my blogposts into this forum. As it is, I'll have to make do with signposting my little ebook of the trip:
(This is the Amazon.com link - it's easy enough to find from other sources.)
Just finished posting my Hong Kong trip report, including:
Big Buddha + Ngong Ping 360 cable car

I'm 20 and live in the UK and I am planning on taking a year out after I graduate (July 2014) to go travelling. Some of the places on the top of my list would be Argentina and Brazil though I'm not quite sure how I would go about planning this. I will most likely be travelling alone and if you had any advice as to the best way to do this it would be a great help! Thanks.
3rd of June, I visited a village called Giethoorn. Before this, I had not heard of it, nor did many of dutch people. The most enchanting encounter happened to me in that small village.
I met a decent boy that day. He generously showed my friend and I around the canal on his boat. We chatted and laughed, definitely shared a good moment. The final bus was at 6:20 pm, so we had to say goodbye before we had chance to spend more time together.
It was a brief, yet a lovely day for me. I wouldn't wanna have it become just a memory. However, he doesn't have facebook or skype. And I forgot to ask for e-mail address. I try to ask around if anyone knows someone from Giethoorn. But so far it's still a dead-end.
Holla if you have some leads or information for me!
p.s. I have his first name but I don't know how to spell it. It sort of pronounce like "Dreman". more »
A few new posts in our blog! We've stayed fairly close to home lately as we are in the midst of moving to our own apartment together! In the meantime over the past month, we've enjoyed the sights of the cherry blossoms in bloom in Toronto, as well as enjoying some Caribbean vegetarian cuisine! Check it out:
We're also looking for some like-minded travel bloggers to exchange links with - we'll post a link to your blog on ours, and vice versa! Please contact us through the blog if you're interested!

I did a trip to the Batad rice terraces from Manila last week. Quite a lot of info on my blog about how to get there, tour costs, using a guide, what to see, where to stay and eat etc.
In short, if you are in Manila, this is definitely worth going to see, even if you only have a short time, it is worth the 9 hour journey.
My husband and I traveled to Jamaica and we both wrote about the experience in our blog here:
It was our very first trip to Jamaica and it really opened our eyes. We had a rocky start, but over time we fell in love with the Island. You can see the trip from both of our perspectives and it was truly life changing for us. Negril, Jamaica is absolutely beautiful. The people are warm, the beaches are stunning. If you've ever thought about going to Jamaica or you're planning a trip there... you'll hopefully enjoy this trip report and find it helpful.
we develop a facebook page about cities, villages, and all the places in the
We are looking for contributors to send us photos of their town or village with
just one or two sentences to explain what they like in their city, their
village, or to tell what great event they lived here.
Thanks very much at all
