Places I Follow

Rory's Activity

ANew Zealand: What is the weather like in New Zealand in June/July?

It's winter, so obviously it's not going to be hot and sunny. Having said that, there aren't many places in New Zealand​ that get really cold, it's more wind and rain you'll get unless you go up a mountain. As a local, I actually... See More

AScotland: Where to go with a 1.5 year old while in Scotland?

There are a fair few places in Edinburgh​ that are good for kids - definitely take a trip to Edinburgh Zoo​ for the penguins and the giant pandas. Our Dynamic Earth​ is also well worth a trip when in Edinburgh... See More

ANew Zealand: Aukland or Queenstown?

Three nights is not a long time to visit. I'm assuming you're flying into Auckland Airport​, so bear in mind that you'll have to get to Queenstown​ and back in that time, and that flights don't go into Queenstown... See More

ANew Zealand: South Island w/ Car for 8 Days, Fishing/Camping Wanted

AWhere are the Best Cities to Celebrate Christmas?

Lapland​ is awesome, although I went in February rather than at Christmas. We stayed in a log cabin at Sallatunturi​ which was really cool, right next to a small ski field, frozen lake for ice fishing and a reindeer park. Christmas... See More

ANew Zealand: Hotels or Campervan in New Zealand?

Campervans are a great way to see the best of New Zealand​. There are quite a lot of people out and about in their RVs in both islands, especially in summer. The best brands to go for are Britz, Maui and Kea, and a range of sizes are available - from... See More

AWhat is your favorite capital city you've ever traveled to?

Edinburgh​ has some of the best architecture, great pubs and history (Edinburgh Castle​, The Royal Mile​, St.Giles Cathedral​ for example) and is easy to get around on foot or using public transport.... See More

AEdinburgh: Edinburgh - Affordable hotels in the city center?

Try the Travelodge chain, there are a number around the city center. This time of year is peak season, so things will be expensive. August / September always expensive because of the Festival and Fringe. See More

ASydney: What's the best place to see a kangaroo in or around Sydney?

Go to Taronga Zoo See More
