Places I Follow

Polly's Activity

AJapan: Where should I visit outside of Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo?

Where will you and your friends be meeting? If you're starting in Tokyo, Nikko​ and Hakone​ are great. If you're starting in Kyoto, it would make sense to visit Hiroshima​ and Miyajima​,... See More

AUnited States: Good iPhone app?

Trover ​ sounds like a good fit for what you're looking for. It essentially functions as a Pinterest for travel photography. Once you upload a photo you've taken, it marks that spot on a map ​. If you'd like to mark places to visit "someday", you... See More

AMaine: Trips from maine

I concur with Phil's ranking! New Brunswick has the Bay of Fundy​ and Hopewell Rocks​, but is a little meh otherwise (at least in comparison to the surrounding states and provinces). However, unless you take the ferry from Portland,... See More

AColorado: Colorado, Wyoming, Montana (20 days in Summer)

What a treat for your daughter! Do you have a basic route in mind already? Take full advantage of the National Parks - I would go ahead and buy a full-year pass, as it will save you money if you visit three or more parks. Lodging within the parks, however, will probably... See More

AMexico City: Three Weeks In Mexico City

I'm keeping an eye on this question, as I have an upcoming trip planned to Mexico City​ as well! As far as extended day trips go, I only have time for one, but I'm torn between Puebla​ and Cholula​ or Taxco​.... See More

ASouth Africa: Venues and locations for a South Africa destination wedding

Oh man, I would go for a Cape Winelands​ wedding in a heartbeat, especially since a lot of vineyards are used to hosting weddings and could help you out loads when planning from a distance. End of this year would be late spring/early summer there... See More

AUnited States: finding best airline prices

Use comparison sites to research prices as Maria mentioned, but do so in a "private" window on your browser. Otherwise, your computer may store cookies which then alerts the site to jack up the price next time you visit. Once I find a price I like, I head over to... See More

AWhat is your favorite type of hotel and why?

It depends on the type of trip I'm on. On road trips within the United States​, any clean chain hotel with a decent rate will do. Sometimes we'll take a chance on a local place, after checking the ratings on tripadvisor, etc. When I'm staying... See More

AItaly: Italy in a week, is it possible?!

I'm going to say no, especially if there's family to visit. Even my high school euro-trip, the sort infamous for spending only a few days in each place, took seven days to do *just* Venice, Florence, and Rome.You've got a city a day listed... See More

ATexas: Texas Trip in May

From the description of your "likes", you'll find Texas to be right up your alley! I've only driven through Houston, but I have a few suggestions for the other cities on your list. Probably the coolest, most "Texas"y thing I did in or near Dallas... See More
