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

ALisbon to Cascais: Is it wise to plan a day trip to Cascais and then to Belem on the same day?

It makes sense to combine the two places on one daytrip but imo it isn't 'wise' to visit Cascais​ and then go to Belém​. I think you should visit the other way round. Most people visit Belem to... See More

ALisbon to Sintra: Day trip to Sintra from Lisbon

Getting from Lisbon​ to Sintra​ by train is very easy indeed. Although you won't be able to see everything in'd need more than one day to do that...... you'll certainly (and easily) be able to see a... See More

AIreland: I am interested in a tour of Ireland, looking for good local tour operator?

>Prefer to see castles. The term 'castle' is often misleading. I suspect you are thinking of Medieval stone castles (1100s > 14/1500s) but both Iron Age fortified settlements and large private houses built in the 1700s/1800s (often with towers, battlements... See More

ANashville: Grand ol opry

After using several smaller venues from the time it first started (1925) in 1943 the Grand Old Opry made its permanent home in Ryman Auditorium​ in Nashville. The auditorium is used from November to January but, since 1974 ... See More

AMontalcino: 2015 Brunello

The 2015 vintage will be released next year and by 'celebrate' I assume you mean the 'Benvenuto Brunello' festival which is usually held in Montalcino​ in mid-February? The 2020 dates may not yet be set but, as the festival is organised... See More

ATaos to Albuquerque: Direct transportation from taos to albuquerque

Sorry to hear about your 'friend'. Some ideas: See More

ARome: Rome in late November?

'Cold' is a matter of what you're used to. You can reassure your parents that frost or snow in November is very, very unlikely anywhere in Italy​ other than the highest mountains. It'll be chilly in the mornings and after sunset... See More

ABologna to Split: where is the best place to stay over night on the way from Bologna to Split

If you're taking the ferry to Split​ then Ancona​ is the obvious overnight stop and is an interesting historical city in its own right. If you're planning on driving all the way then Trieste​... See More

ALondon: Do i need UK transit visa?

> Do i need pick up my luggage at London and go through the custom or not?  If you have booked flights with 2 separate airlines you must go through border control (immigration), collect your bags, go through Customs... See More

AGeneva to Venice: Looking for a beautiful drive along the way

You don't say how long you have to make this trip. At its fastest it's going to take at least 6.5+ hours by the most direct route (and probably more). Frankly, doing the journey in one day ....or even two....won't give you time to see anywhere in a 'leisurely'... See More
