ANew York City: Safe neighborhood in NYC for Mother-Daughter trip

Hi Amanda! Most of Manhattan is extremely safe, especially if you're interested in seeing the usual tourist attractions. I would recommend getting an Airbnb apartment, because hotels can be insanely expensive (I would plan on spending no less than 200 per night if you... See More


QHavana: Tips for a U.S. citizen applying for journalism license to go to Cuba?

How difficult is it for a US citizen to get a journalism license to enter Cuba? My friend and I are doing an epic trip around Latin America this year but we were hoping to make a stop in Havana before we come back up to Miami and then back NYC. We own a website (http://dayjoboptional.com)... See More


ABrooklyn: Is Brooklyn a good place to base myself when visiting NYC?

Absolutely - find an Airbnb in Williamsburg, Greenpoint or Bushwick. All of these neighborhoods have pretty easy access to the city and are away from the craziness of Manhattan but still have lots to do -- and better places to go, in my humble opinion, but I come from a... See More


ANew York City: NYC in January, good idea?

Hi Kim! Yes, in general we have a decent amount of snow in January, however it's very rare that there is so much snow that it prevents anyone from having fun. Maybe a foot or two, never as much as upstate. There are rare freak snow storms that pile it on, but it melts... See More


ANew York City: Non-touristy "must do's" in Manhattan over the week of July 4th

My favorite place to be on a Thursday night is Mehanata Bulgarian Bar​. It's fun, eccentric and definitely non-pretentious. Live music, DJs + dance party as well as a bar with swings (when is the last time you were on a swing?!) and loft with... See More


APeru: SAFE transportation for a solo female traveller in between cities Peru?

I would recommend booking a seat on an overnight bus-cama to travel between cities. Book the VIP service (about 80 soles) through a company like Cromotex ​. Plenty of security as you board and during the ride, and your luggage is guarded while you wait to pick it up once... See More


ALima (Peru): Best way to go from Lima to Cusco, Peru

I'm a huge advocate of the overnight bus-cama. I believe the trip is about 12 hours. You spend about 80 soles for a fully reclining fat mattress-like seat on a bus. They show a movie, serve dinner, tea, etc. You fall asleep and wake up winding through the Andes as you... See More


ANew York City: First thing to do after landing in NYC?

If you want to dive right into the artistic heart of the city, go straight to the Lower East Side​ (L.E.S.). Plan your larger tour attractions (Empire State Building​, Times Square​, etc) on off-hours so the volume... See More


QLima (Peru): Hidden Gems in Lima?

Stoked to be heading to Lima for the second time in mid-September. I'm looking for amazing, possibly uncharted emolienterias and cevicherias near Miraflores, Jesús María, and Barranco. Also open to any other gems... See More
