Buy sim cards (data) before travel or at the location? Preferred companies?

Buy the SIM card there -- much cheaper.  Just find a cell phone store or kiosk anywhere (but ideally not the airport as it can be a bit more expensive); I've gone to ones in grocery stores, little shops on the street as I'm walking around, etc.   Just make sure... See More

What are some ways to go on safari responsibly?

This question is strange -- why would wild animals be "looked after"?  It's not a zoo!  :)   A true safari really brings you in touch with wild animals -- if anyone is in a cage, it's you the safari-goer who has to be very careful to leave the safety... See More

Loire Valley: 4 or 5 day escorted tour of Loire Valley?

Why do you want to take an escorted tour?  Just rent a car and drive yourself!   The Loire is so gorgeous with vineyards, cute towns, and lovely castles everywhere.  Last time we stayed at Chateau d'Artigny which is cool to be staying at a mini-castle yourself.  It's... See More

Paris: Should I stay near Eiffel Tower or city center (Notre Dame area)?

Definitely the city center!  So many more things to do as far as cafes, shops, and just excitement walking around.  More metro stops too.  Near the Eiffel Tower it's a lot quieter and while safe, the streets are much more empty.  Personally I felt a little less... See More

Milan: Milan to Dubrovnik- which route should we take?

We did this last year as part of a 2+ week Tuscany/Croatia trip.   Our itinerary was: - Flew into Milan​.  Stayed 1 night.  Rented a car & swung by Florence to pick up some others in our party.  Then drove down to Tuscany and stayed 7 night... See More

Kaua'i: Kauai or Oahu?

Both are great and with such a long trip, you should visit both -- maybe a week on each island.  If you're going for longer than two weeks, then highly recommend visiting the Big Island as well. My favorite island is O'ahu​ -- by far the best... See More

You want me to eat what?!?

Beijing​, China:  From a Beijing street food stall we ordered a skewer of LIVE squirming scorpions.   Being Asian, live is the key to ensure freshness  :)   The guy tossed them in a big hot wok (which killed them), sprinkled some mystery spice on,... See More

Florence: Quaint cities to visit between Florence and Rome?

Lots of quaint small hill towns on the way -- San Gimignano​, Volterra​, Siena​, Monteriggioni, etc.  Siena is lovely and the largest of the hill towns of the area, and if you like wine & food,... See More

Croatia: Honeymoon in Croatia for adventurers.

We went on a 9-day trip to Croatia earlier this year.  Ours was super packed since we drove the whole length from Rovinj​ in the north to Dubrovnik​ in the south.  Your 2 week trip is a good length but you're missing out on... See More

Loire Valley: If money were no object, where would you go?

My favorite place in the world is the Loire Valley​​, France -- gorgeous countryside, fairy tale castles (you can stay in some of them!), great food and wine!   However if someone else was footing the tab, I'd go somewhere a little more expensive... See More
