QBelfast: Irish Itinerary? arrive Belfast, go to Republic & return to Belfast

Our upcoming trip to Ireland goes opposite to most I suppose. Icelandic air goes only to Belfast so we'll arrive to Belfast, drive immediately South to the Republic, probably Dublin.  My wife wants to go to the Famine Museum, I want to see sites in Dublin. We have... See More

ANew Zealand: Hanmer Springs or Arthur's Pass

I concur with Yaniv.  Hanmer Springs​ seems like a good way to go if you are interested in Hot Springs.  There is the main resort and a Japanese style onsen.  Otherwise, Arthur's Pass offers greater spectacle. See More

ANew Zealand: Good Rental Service in New Zealand?

You mean lodging?  Air bnb often has great listings!  If you mean vehicle, consider a camping van.  I rented one in the off season for less than a car and stayed in campgrounds for $2 up /night.  Be REALLY careful about insurance though.  The cheap rental rate is kind... See More

ASuggestions of places to go for a gap year?

Australia and, I think, New Zealand offer "working holiday" visas.  You know about Australia, lots of surfing there- but it is not cheap.  That is where the "working " part comes in.  You don't have to work full time or for your whole visit.  The... See More

QCancun: Specific instructions bussing from CanCun Airport to Merida?

It would be very much appreciated if someone could provide very specific instructions on taking "the bus" from the CanCun International Airport to MERIDA, MX city center.  We will travel later this month (October) and would like to minimize confusion as we'll... See More

AShoes and Bags for Travel?

I concur with the advice on shoes.  Flats, with an arch.  Something not yet mentioned is security.  Have a look at .  They have a line of good looking anti-theft bags, purses, wallets and the like.  The shoulder bags have re-enforced straps... See More

QWhat is the best coat for 3 season travel?

We faced a packing problem on our recent travel to Japan.  Anticipating Rain, Snow, Sun all in one trip I packed a fleece jacket, long underwear and Gortex raincoat.  The problem is the fleece is really bulky and wind cuts right through it.  The raincoat was nerdy and... See More

AWhat's the 1 (or even 3) item that you absolutely can't travel without?

a small flashlite (torch).  Even a tiny keychain type is useful.  Having this has saved me more than once.  I honestly couldn't find the keyhole on a super dark night in Barbados on my loaner car.  I was stone sober, it was just dark and unfamiliar.  Without that... See More
