ASan Francisco: What to see along Highway 1?

If you are traveling in the winter months, be sure to stop at either Piedras Blancas (near Hearst Castle) or Año Nuevo (North of Santa Cruz) to see the elephant seals. Amazing. Instead of the 17 mile drive, I'd go to Carmel River state beach (sea otters), or Ocean... See More

ASan Jose: Where can I find the best Pad Thai between San Jose, CA and Seattle?

I've had good luck at ​Shana Thai at 311 Moffett Blvd​ in Mountain View. And I second the recommendation of Pok Pok in Portland. DEEE-licious, although you should not settle for just Pad Thai there! See More

AWhich Middle Eastern countries are the safest to go as a female traveler?

My wife and I recently travelled to Egypt, Jordan, and Israel, and of the three I would say that Jordan easily felt the safest and the most enlightened, especially w.r.t. women. Women there have the right to vote, drive, get education, hold public office, etc. We were traveling... See More

QSan Francisco: Terribly Romantic Ocean View near SF?

My wife loves the ocean. I'd like to take her someplace wonderful and romantic for our 10th anniversary. Has to have a wonderful view of the ocean and nice beaches to walk. Less crowded is better. I'm not concerned about price, but we aren't really into unnecessary... See More

AWhat's a story from your travels that helped restore your faith in humanity

Years ago my wife and I decided to move to New Zealand​ for a few months, just to see if we wanted to live there permanently. A friend told us she had a friend who lived in New Zealand, so she put us in contact with him. He picked us up at the airport.... See More

AIceland: Which are the locations you cannot miss? Any suggested itinerary?

The only thing I would add to the other comments is that you should visit as many hot springs as you can. Every town has at least one, and there are several in Reykjavik​. Actually, our *least* favorite one was the Blue Lagoon -- definitely an overpriced... See More

AMost Impressive Pools in the World?

My favorite pools? The Devil's pool, right on the edge of Victoria Falls​. You can swim there only when the water level is low. Look over the edge -- 100 meters straight down! Saline... See More

AWhat is the best city in the world when you're hungry?

Portland OR. The food cart scene there is second to none. What's even more amazing is that the food there used to be boring, and there was hardly any ethnic food to speak of. But all that has changed in the last 15 years. See More

AWhat are the most underrated travel destinations?

I try to make a habit of visiting places that are underrated. Here are a few I love: Almost anywhere in Latin America. Most Americans don't get past Mexico or maybe Central America, which is a shame. I've been to Cuba​​ twice and loved it... See More
