Q  May 12, 2014

Romania: Top picks for travels around Romania, Bulgaria, and Serbia?

May be taking a few weeks-month or so to kick around Romania, Bulgaria, and Serbia starting in June. Thinking Bucharest, Brasov, Bran Castle, Sibiu, Transylvanian Alps...likely Veliko Tarnovo, Nessebar, Plovdiv, Melnik..Belgrade, Subotica. In this (very) preliminary mulling.... See More

Thessaloniki: Train/bus between Thessaloniki & Skopje

Any recommendations for--and links to the schedules of--train and/or bus companies with routes that run from Thessaloniki, Greece to Macedonia stopping in Gradsko, Negotino, Kavadarci, or Veles (ie, any town in the general vicinity of the Stobi archaeological site)?... See More

Montreal: Best places and local gem to see during weekend in Montreal

I agree re having a stroll along Boulevard Saint-Laurent​.. A lot of the most interesting, hip-but-low-key places are to be found in the Mile-End​ and Le Plateau​neighbourhoods. Like with its restos, there are... See More

Cusco: Sights in/near Cusco

First, in Cusco proper there is an Inca temple Templo del Qorikancha​ pretty centrally located and easy to strool to. But right outside the city there are four more main sites: the already mentioned Sacsayhuaman​but also Q'enko​, Puca... See More

New York City: Best "sit at the bar and eat solo" restaurants?

A spot at the The Spotted Pig​ usually requires a long wait or a small miracle but those burgers (and everything else, really) are worth the wait. For future reference, the Frankies are always serving up fabulous fare too: Frankies 570​... See More

Paris: Need opinions about calling abroad from Paris

To add to Aaron's answer.. Bear in mind that, like with eschewing the far more sensible metric system, the US doesn't align with everywhere else (again) re cell phone technology either.. Your unlocked AT&T or T-Mobile (read: GSM) phone will work...Verizon and... See More

Easter Island: How to get to Easter Island and what to see

Just to clarify, you can go from either Santiago​ -or- Lima (Peru)​ to Easter Island​. (But yes, only on LAN and it won't be cheap.) Actually, this is one of the world's most isolated islands so bear in mind... See More

Iceland: when is better to visit iceland to explore the country by yourself?

In case you do head that way in a more wintry month, this is a good map to have on-hand: See More

Sweden: The best of the best in Scandinavian countries?

Every city is lovely, but Stockholm​ is probably my favorite--a gorgeous mix of islands and waterways. Gamla Stan​area is lovely...and there's always lots of places to pop into along Götgatan​ street. Take... See More

Alaska: Best cruise company and time of year for Alaska cruise

As someone who grew up in Southeast Alaska, it's my duty to strongly advise against taking a cruise. Instead, I wholeheartedly second Tony's suggestion for taking the ferry. So... If you're game for that route, you can tailor your own trip based on where you'd... See More
