ABaltimore to New York City: How far to drive from Baltimore to New York City

Like others say, totally depends on traffic. But Baltimore​ to outskirts of New York City​ is about 3.5/4 hours on an easy drive. Once you get actually into the city....a mile could take 30 minutes. See More

ABarcelona: Best part of city to stay in.

I love El Poble-sec​ mostly because the pinchos are so good and cheap. I don't mind walking and would walk to the sea and everywhere from here. It is a bit hilly, diverse, residential, yet still lively in the evening and easy to grab a taxi.  See More

QCrete: Where to stay in Crete for Holiday

AMilan: Shengen Visa - how does it work, exactly?

Very Quick answer is- 90 days in, 90 days out. So you could do SCHENGEN countries for 90 days then UK for 90 days and go back and forth. Gotta love the grey areas like....what if you go to Switzerland for 90 days out because it is an open border how do you prove it? Keep... See More

AItaly: What is the best way to get 4G Sim card for 10 days in Italy?

Hi! Go into a vodafone, Tim, or Wind store and say you have moved to Italy and want to get a sim card to pay every month. I paid 10euro a month when I lived there and never ran out of data or minutes/texts.  You will need to pay 10euro one time for sim. I would not pay... See More

AItaly: How can I spend my 3 days in Italy?

Hi! I understand wanting to see all the beautiful places in Italy but you don't want to spend all your time on a train! This really depends where you are flying into. My recommendations are.... 1. Rome​. It is insanely amazing and ancient and beautiful... See More

AItaly: Cost effective way to travel from Italy to Athens, Greece
