Austin Texas at Easter time  (3 Answers)

Hi
My husband and I are travelling to the USA in April of 2011 and would love to check out the music scene in Austin but the only dates we have available at this stage is over the Easter 2011 long weekend so I was just wondering if it would still be worth while going then?
In Australia everything is completely closed on Good Friday,
Easter Saturday runs as per normal
Easter Sunday runs as per normal (Sunday trading) and
Easter Monday runs as per Sunday trading
Is this the same in the USA?
We would just hate to travel there and only really have Saturday to check out the live music. Any advice be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Travel to US/Canada on a one-way ticket  (2 Answers)

Hey, i'm from Singapore. i'll be travelling to Montreal for a student exchange program in August. I'm contemplating stopping over at france or london first, then proceed to nyc from where i'll take greyhound toward montreal. I'm looking to buy 3 one-way tickets, 1 from singapore to london, 1 from london to nyc, and 1 from nyc back to singapore.
I understand that there are some concerns regarding one-way tickets over at US borders, especially with the heightened security checks in recent times. I'd just like to enquire if i would run into any problems? If the concern is whether i'll be illegally staying over in the US, is it sufficient if i have proof of exit (the itinerary of nyc-singapore) to show to the guards?
I won't have student visa because canada doesn't need one.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

Campervan around USA...HELP!!!!  (7 Answers)

Hello!
I am planning to travel around USA with my boyfriend for a year in a campervan from April '10. We were hoping to buy one and then have the company buy it back when the year is over, and found the website- which is called 'Ruedis Auto Vermittlung'. The only thing is I found a very bad review from a couple of separate people who used them both saying they were crooks and cost them a lot of money in repairs. Does anybody have any first hand information on them or any other information that might be useful? We're both from England so unfortunately really need to have something sorted for when we arrive!
Thankyou very much!!! :)

Are there any interesting places out of the ordinary and guidelines to motels. Is there a listing of motel prices which I can draw from the Internet?

Hi, I'm spanish. I'm looking for a city I've seen just in pics. It's a city that must be in USA (or maybe in Canada, but I think it's USA). The city have got some lakes near (not necessary the Great Lakes) and there's a hospital whose building is circular. I would be pleased if anybody could tell me if know a city similar like that. It's important for me to find a person who lives there. Thanks

Hola, soy español. Estoy buscando una ciudad que sólo he visto en fotos. Es una ciudad que debe estar en USA (o quizás en Canadá, pero creo que es de USA). Tiene algunos lagos cerca (no necesariamente los GRandes Lagos), y hay un hospital cuyo edificio es circular. Agradecería que alguien pudiera decirme si conoce una ciudad parecida a esta. Es importante que encuentre a una persona que vive allí. Gracias.

coast/coast USA  (4 Answers)

Hi, a couple of years ago my wife and I bought a Hiace at Kings Cross market in Sydney Oz while we were travelling over there, and drove the Eastern Circle, 17000 kms then flogged it on our return. Is it poss. to do the same in USA, ie buy a wagon and then flog it 2 months later (in the States), bearing in mind I'd be a British holiday maker and going to be in USA for about 2 months. Also if it is poss. how does the insurance work out? Many thanks for any advice.

Question about USA / Canada Travel from Australia  (4 Answers)

I have a flight booked from here in Australia to the USA for April 16th. It's a return flight due back on the 15th of June. The trip at the moment is on a regular Visa waiver and I probably only have about5000 with me to make it.. ( which is plenty as I know a lot of people in the US who will take care of me while I'm there for food, lodging etc..) It's a holiday so I don't plan to work on the trip legally or otherwise. I also have friends in Canada and wouldn't mind crossing into there also to see them. What would I need to do to be able to do that and is there any Visa or anything I have to apply for?

Secondly I'd like to spend as much time as possible overseas as I can.. Is there a legal way of not taking my plane home in June as planned but instead going over to Canada and taking a new flight back to Australia which I pay for when I'm there whenever the time is up? How long can I stay in Canada without having to go home? Anyway if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. I don't really know any of the rules. Cheers.

Dan

First Time Travel Advice  (5 Answers)

Hello, I’m Paul.....

Im planning a coast to coast trip to the USA between 31/05/08 and 12/07/08 starting in New York and finishing in LA, with my girlfriend and would really be grateful for any advice given. I have a few questions....

Is six weeks long enough to travel?
Is £3000 excluding flights for 2 people enough cash?
What accommodation would you recommend?
What methods of travel are best?
Does anyone know a fairly pleasant but cheap hotel in New York?

We were looking at Greyhound and Amtrack but not sure which is the best option, kinda worried about the accommodation situation too. Another thing is my girlfriend is 20 and is able to drive, is this possible in the USA? She would only drive for around 2 weeks.

Thinking of visting New York, Niagra Falls, Chicago, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon.... do you recommend any other places?

Any general advice?

Thank you very much, any replies would be grateful.

Paul
