Places I Follow

Julie's Activity

AAndalucía: 4 days in Andalucia before 3 day work trip in Marbella

Hi Edwin Some great recommendations here, and I'd also add Ronda​ into the mix. It's a pretty town with plenty of amenities for visitors, and you can easily spend a few nights there. It's also not too far from the coast - you could do it... See More

ABologna: must see places in Bologna, Italy

Hi Janet As others have said, Bologna is wonderful! You can also walk to the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca,​ (which Paul mentioned in his response) through the city's famous porticoes. They run the full 4km from the centre to the Sanctuary.... See More

AItaly: 3wk in Italy 9/3/16-9/24

Hi John, Italy is a wonderful country full of architectural and historical riches. As previous responders have said, it's also easy to travel by train. I'd agree with previous replies about Sorrento / Christianity. However, if you're into history/architecture,... See More

ALondon: How to get from Heathrow to Liverpool

Hi Liane, You can take the Piccadilly Line tube (subway) from Heathrow to Green Park (about 50 mins duration). Change there for the Victoria Line to London Euston (another 5 mins). Virgin trains to Liverpool depart from London Euston. Have a wonderful trip :) Julie... See More

QMexico: Language school recommendations in Mexico? (Mazatlan?)

Hi everyone, My boyfriend and I have booked a three-week trip to Mexico in October/November, and want to start with a week of language school. I have conversational Spanish skills already, he has a few words. We've been looking at the Mazatlan area. Any recommendations... See More

ABudapest: Restaurants, Café, Pubs, Bars in Budapest

Hi Christie I echo Miklos's answer about the markets. The main market hall in Budapest has loads of cheap eateries, plenty of locals eat there. One of the street foods is langos - battered and deep fried potato - try it locals' style, which is smothered with sour... See More

ACancun to Tulum: Cancun Airport to Tulum: Rent a car or take a shuttle?

Hi Jillian Another option is the inter-city bus from Cancun's bus station (there is a shuttle from the airport to the bus station) to Tulum. It takes about 2 hrs. Waaaay cheaper than a taxi :) Have fun, Mexico is one of my fave countries (just booked my third trip... See More

AThailand: Acceptable dress code in Thailand?

Hi Jenn, Thailand is a wonderful country. My recommendation would be to do as the local women do - shorts for the beach, not for the cities. I felt far more comfortable to "blend in" at least a little bit (giant height aside!).  Knee length skirts are absolutely... See More

AWhere is the perfect hiking base town?

Hi Robert You can walk straight into The Alps from Solden​ in Austria. Walks are well signed, and accommodation is far cheaper in the summer than in the ski season. Have fun! Julie See More

ABarcelona: Top sites in Barcelona and Mallorca?

Hi Robert Barcelona is an incredible city - you can't miss the Gaudi architecture, which many of the previous respondents have mentioned. There's also loads to see and do in the surrounds as well. For a day trip, how about the monastery in the mountains at Montserrat​.... See More
