What sort of destinations do you like?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 17:30:19 GMT

Curious what other people look for in a destination. Like beaches, party spots, nature, landmarks, museums etc? I always tend to go towards historical places. Anywhere with a bit of history to it attracts me. Especially military history. Other things that interest me are cycle trails and local culture. Nature and nice natural sites I also enjoy. Beaches I can take or leave. A place with no or bad beaches wouldn't put me off, but if there's a nice beach it's ... [Posted by Muffintherabbit - Aug 15, 09:30]

Your next destination?

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 17:08:51 GMT

Like it says on the destination. Where is everyone off too next? My next destination is Busan in Korea. My dad's coming to visit in Taiwan and when he comes over we always try to visit somewhere. Last year was Okinawa. This year, we've decided on Busan and a day trip into Seoul. Should be good, looks a really nice place. So, where's everyone else off too? :) ...

Where wouldn't you go again?

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 15:45:49 GMT

For me, Kuala Lumpur. I went there last year and found it to be a very boring city with little warmth or charm. The taxis were expensive, food bland and even though we were only there a few days we still found ourselves struggling to find things to do. I also have little interest in going to Paris again. Just seemed a really rude, unfriendly city. ... [Posted by Muffintherabbit - Aug 02, 07:45]

Flight Route maps

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 12:16:35 GMT

This is for people who like maps & have not seen it before. Google maps flight directions from Toronto to Beijing gives the expected route I would envisage by looking at a map. By using the 'measure distance' tool, another line shows the shortest distance between the two points which is what I assume to be the route a plane would take .. the Great Circle route. Cute .. I like it. Good to know if I am looking at lay-ove ... [Posted by hasbeen - Aug 02, 04:16]

'Local' SIM card/data/talk/terxt deals?

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 11:23:13 GMT

Hi all I've never purchased a 'local' SIM card/data/call/text 'deal'. Now I got into trouble on this forum the other day by naming a credit card (quite innocently, I might add) so for the love of all that is holy, without naming names, al I want to ask here is how do they work? (Whatever you do, don't or even hint at an actual product or I will be sent back to Purgatory)... Can I assume for example that you pay, say, $10 ... [Posted by Dave_C57 - Jul 30, 03:23]

Taking your smart phone and money management

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 16:59:22 GMT

Hi all Phone: I'm desperate to take my iphone 6+ but I'm concerned about theft. If i take a cheaper/older Android essentially the same threat applies. I last backpacked (for almost 5 straight years in 1987-1992) and I got by just fine with no phone and far fewer plans than I'm making this time around. (Back then, no one could threaten me for a PIN or fingerprint like they could today - so much for progress!) So I either hide my 6+ or Android ... [Posted by Dave_C57 - Jul 25, 08:59]

How has your travel style changed?

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 17:16:21 GMT

After reading over and thinking about the thread on What Travel Style You Can't Wrap Your Head Around , I realize that I have had different travel styles at different times in my life and that it also varies a bit by the reason for the travel. Is this the same for you? Giving examples: As a child, I went where my parents took me. No planning whatever on my part. We sometimes drove around the western US and camped, and ...

Giving Advice

If I want to know the best way to drive from Baltimore to Dallas TX, I go to good old Google maps. I look at the routes they suggest, and figure out where we will want to stop for the night - I look for hotels and then I call the hotels and book. I'm currently participating on a website which is a spin-off of VT where people ask those kinds of questions - [i]How can I drive from Point ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Jul 15, 13:20]
