About Me

I've visited 35+ countries over the past 14 years or so, many more than once, and almost always as solo traveller. I usually organise my trips entirely by myself and generally use public transport to explore. :-)

Places I Follow

Mary's Activity

London: Nell Gwynn Hotel Apartments - clean?

I haven't stayed in this place but I'm from the UK and have stayed in  London​ many times. It's an exceptionally expensive city and, when it comes to accommodation, you get what you pay for. You'll find conflicting reviews about almost... See More

New Zealand: Visa Inquiry

Your age is irrelevant, other than at 36 you can't take advantage of the 'working holidaymaker' visa available for younger people.  What actually matters is the skills you can offer. Have a look at the official New Zealand government website. It lists and... See More

Tuscany: Getting around Tuscany without a rental car?

Hotel Le Fontanelle​ is about 15 miles from Siena​ and, as it was once part of a country estate, is neither in or near a village. The nearest bus stop is about 1.5 miles away, along the lane which leads down from the hotel on top of... See More

Iceland: Best tours?

Reykjavik​ is very small, very safe and very walkable so there really isn't a 'best' location in the city centre (called 'downtown' in the US). Iceland isn't a cheap country and accommodation costs are high, so your opinion of... See More

Barcelona: How to travel from Madrid airport to Barcelona

1. Take the line 203 airport bus (safe, comfortable, room for bags, no need to book in advance) or an official white taxi (obviously more expensive) from Madrid Barajas ​ to Atocha ​... See More

Europe: What is the best place to vacation in Europe?

'Europe​ is a continent made up of 45+ countries. But perhaps by 'Europe' you mean the 28 European Union countries? Each European country has its own culture, history, foods and (usually) language. All have long histories, with thousands... See More

Switzerland: 3.5 days in Switzerland

I almost always travel alone and have visited 30+ countries.Travelling as a solo female is just as safe (and probably safer) in European countries than it is in the US. The real risk is of pickpocketing and opportunistic petty theft rather than anything more serious... See More

Do you say Seville or Sevilla? Italy or Italia?

I live in the UK and when  am in the UK or any English-first-language country I use the British English pronunciation/name of a country, city etc e.g. Germany,  Florence, Munich, Prague, Seville, Vienna and so on. When I am in the relevant country I generally use the... See More

Italy: Meeting daughter in Florence, want to go to Naples/Sorrento end in Rome

Your itinerary is both possible and perfectly feasible  and, frankly, using the train is by far the best idea. The historical centres of almost all Italian cities and towns, and many villages too, have ZTLs (restricted traffic zones) which are increasingly monitored by... See More

Rotterdam: Gas & Electricity Bills Approx. for House of 4ppl

Obviously how much your gas and electricity will cost depends on a) how much you use and b) what the weather is like so any figure can only be very approximate. Numbeo gives accurate and regularly-updated cost-of-living info (including average monthly utility costs i.e.... See More
