Katie's Activity

QManchester: Couple of hours to kill in Manchester city centre - recommendations?

Hi - In a couple of weeks, I'm going to be in Manchester for around 2 hours on a Saturday morning. I don't really want to go shopping - I'd rather see / do something interesting. Either a big attraction, or something a bit more off the beaten path.  Any suggestions? ... See More

AEurope: Next flight in...8 hours! What to do during a long layover?

If you have enough time, and if visas aren't a problem, it's always worth heading out of the airport to look around. Feels like you're getting an extra holiday! I have an 8 hour layover in Brussels Airport​ in January, and I'm actually... See More

ALondon: What's the Best Theatre show in London currently playing?

It depends what you're after. There are some fantastic musicals showing as always - personally I'm a huge fan of Wicked, so if you want to come away smiling and humming show tunes, maybe go for that. Les Mis is also a must-see. However, if you're up for some... See More

AAmsterdam: Hotel & attractions for family with 11 year old kid

Don't have any hotel recommendations I'm afraid, but I can suggest a couple of attractions, as I was about 12 when I went to Amsterdam​. (So admittedly some years ago, but lots of the big attractions have stayed the same.) ​I would definitely... See More

ALondon: 2 week itinerary for London, Spain, and Germany?

Sounds like a really interesting mix of places. I guess you need to decide whether you're going to fly between them, or spend time travelling by car or train and see the landscape on the way - in which case, be aware of how long it will take you to travel between the... See More

AParis: Honeymoon through Paris, Strasbourg, & Munich -- Suggestions?

Hi Theresa, I've only ever spent a few hours in Strasbourg and Munich, so not much help there I'm afraid. But Paris​ is such a romantic place for a honeymoon! Of course they are the obvious 'must-do' items like the Eiffel... See More

AItaly: Can I bring my backpack in museums?

This is true, unfortunately - it's a security measure. Most places will allow you to take a small bag, but not anything as big as a day pack. Museums / galleries will usually have somewhere secure you can leave it at the entrance, though, often for a small fee. Lots... See More

ANew Zealand: New Zealand mountain climbing and hiking spots?

Don't know about rock climbing, but the Tongariro Alpine Crossing​ is a must for hiking! Or if you fancy swapping volcanos for the sea, there's some great coastal hiking in Abel Tasman National Park​. You can choose to do... See More

AParis: Is it comfortable for solo Indian in Paris?

Hi Sunita - I've been to Paris​ a number of times, both with friends and family, and on my own, and never encountered any problems. Parisians have a reputation of being unfriendly, but last time I was there, I found everyone to be incredibly helpful.... See More
