Been on a great vacation or location recently? Share with us your travels, your tips, great places to stay, and whatever else you can think of.

  1. Where is your favourite holiday place, and why ?

    As a child I used to go on holiday regularly, to Bexhill-on-Sea in Sussex, England. My grandmother lived there and she used to rent a beach hut for us. We were able to stay for 3 or more weeks, and it was wonderful ! I have brilliantly fond memories of that place. It has changed now, with...

  2. Disaster Tourism at the Chernobyl Nuclear Accident Site

    I didn't realize Pripyat had been given the all clear for visitation but according to this article it's well on its way to becoming a tourist mecca. There's no doubt it would be interesting but I'm not convinced on the safety of the radiation levels regardless of the information spouted by the...

  3. Eurail tickets

    I am trying to make sure how the Eurail Pass works these days? Back in the late 90s I went to Europe to do some product training with IBM. I had to travel to various Cities to meet with Support reps. I found that using Eurail was more practical that flying. I spent 400 USD to buy a month long...

  5. Costa Rica in mid-November, which coast first?

    Hello all :) We'll be travelling to Costa Rica (first trip to the Americas, yay) next November for a 3-week trip. Since we have a fair amount of time, for the first time my main questions are not about what to see but in which order. We are flying in and out from SJO, so logistically speaking...

  8. Vehemus interuptus

    Our travels seem to have been put on hold. A Windstorm managed to cause a seam on the Dancer to pop loose, allowing water to get in, just in time for Monsoon Rains to bring plenty of water. Turns out that the plywood they use in these things is NOT made to deal well with being wet. It...

  9. Cruising

    I am thinking of booking a cruise for 14-15 months out. That gives me plenty of time to get passports which I have never had, my husband's expired years ago. (and cruises aren't too pricey where I live, I can save that moola) Have you ever been a cruise? Was it a positive experience and loads...

  10. Fredericksburg, Virginia

    Virginia was one of the secession states, if I recall. Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy. Fredericksburg hosted a couple of battles and there were two more not far out of town. I've been reeding The Free Lance-Star, Fredericksburg, Va., Tuesday, April 29, 1947 and I wondered how...

  11. has that GPS ever caused you problems?

    The GPS system has been a boon to the wanderer, these last couple of decades. I love having mine. My favorite game when in a strange area is to start from my hotel, or family/friends' home, and mark that place n my GPS, and then turn it off, then take off exploring, until I get good and lost. I...

  13. Burkhini?

    So, been reading about these new swimsuits designed by and for Arab/Muslim women who want to maintain proper modesty when bathing. I don't get it. Some beaches have banned them, and people in some very civilized regions have become rather enthusiastic about their opinions of them. What's...

His torch is at thy temple door. Maryland! My Maryland! Avenge the patriotic gore that flecked the streets of Baltimore and be...
