AAfrica: What non-essential items to bring on safari?

I've been on safari in Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Botswana. There are a few non-essentials that have come in extremely handy for each of these adventures: Headlamp and/or miniature flashlight. The nights are very dark and even in luxury camps, there will be hours... See More

ALas Vegas: Neon Museum in Vegas -- night tour or day tour?

I understand the temptation of the night tour since I waffled when I purchased tickets, and am sure the day and night tours each have advantages. Ultimately though, I took a late afternoon tour in early January and appreciated being able to get the full impact of the... See More

AVenice: Restaurants in Venice?

Ah, Venice - I love the contrast between buildings in varying states of decay, rebuild, splendor and everything in between. To me, Venice feels as though it teems with ghosts, secrets and whispered stories. You can also eat quite well and off the tourist track while you're... See More

AWhistler: What are your must-eat, drink, do recommendations in Whistler/Vancouver?

There are two Vancouver​ must-eats that immediately come to mind. In fact, I'd fly from Portland just for dinner at either of these spots at any indication of a decent plane fare. Vij’s​ remains crave-worthy even months after a... See More

ASouth Africa: Is five days too ambitious to complete a road trip from Durban to Cape Town?

It's certainly doable, although not ideal. Five days could be well spent in Cape Town​ alone. If all you have is five days though, you'll simply have to prioritize. Do you enjoy wine and art? If so, one day of your adventure would be well... See More

QHavana: Restaurant Recommendations in Havana?

Hi, I'm going to be staying in Havana for a week and would love to hear about your favorite, recommended restaurants or paladares. I booked this adventure well before the travel restrictions were eased, so the majority of our meals will be with the people-to-people tour... See More

AYellowstone National Park: Glacier to Yellowstone Road Trip: Have you done this road trip?

I haven't done the trip between Glacier and Yellowstone, but I have done the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park​ road trip from Portland during the month of August. Since you're spending time in Yellowstone, I would strongly encourage you... See More

AItaly: Renting car in Florence and dropping off in Munich... Are we nuts?

We recently rented a car from Hertz in Florence and drove to Monaco for a week in the French Riviera (dropped off the car in Nice), so I know the pain of the unique expenses of renting in Italy. We were at least able to avoid the additional drop-off fees by renting a vehicle... See More

AFrance: 4 days in Southern France

Although I cannot speak to conditions during the month of March, I was in the French Riviera following a visit to Italy just a few months ago. My husband and I drove in from Florence and used Monaco​ as a home base to explore the coastline and medieval... See More

ALas Vegas: What else is there to do in Las Vegas besides going out on the strip?

It looks as though we all agree the Hoover Dam​ is a great off-strip adventure. I would also advocate for the one-hour dam tour. Although you can learn a ton in the Exhibit Gallery and enjoy stunning views from the Observation Deck or on top of the dam,... See More
