Every Traveler Has a Story

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 07:38:32 GMT

I worked in a lounge at the Airport. It was a time when I realised that every traveler has a story. Everyone in the lounge near me was having a story. One person is travelling to another city for interview, One couple wants their honeymoon to be the best, One mother is on her way to attend the funeral of her beloved son etc. I have heard so many stories and every time I felt that I can't be rude to ...

Weirdest Travel Experience

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 15:20:23 GMT

What is the weirdest travel experience you have had? Not thinking about losing luggage or having terrible problems - just kind of weird. Mine was in Belize in 1998. We had been to the Belize zoo and I had used the bathroom there - my checkbook with a credit card and some cash in it had fallen out of my pocket. I did not discover it until four hours down the road when we stopped for gas and ... [Posted by greatgrandmaR - Apr 13, 07:20]

I made a Dutch language group

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 13:39:47 GMT

Not sure why I hadn't thought of this before, but the groups feature would be a nice way to allow non-English discussions. So I created the "Nederlanders" group because that's the only language I could manage this for myself :) Please join if you're Dutch and want to help out. I'll do my best to converse in Dutch in there even though it's pretty rusty these days and takes a fair bit of mental power for me to not mix ... [Posted by Peter - Apr 13, 05:39]

First time creating a Blog . not so hard

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 20:53:52 GMT

I can see from this thread that there is a bit of a mystique surrounding blogs so here is my take on them. Like many people, I arrived on TP without a clue about how to start a blog or what I could do with one. But I knew wanted to show my sister photos of my trips & sending 5 at a time by E mail was fast becoming tiresome. So the first thing I did on TP, without ... [Posted by hasbeen - Apr 11, 12:53]

Has anyone ever used a car sharing service

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 03:41:03 GMT

Hey folks - I was wondering if people have heard of, ever used or considered using one of those car services where you can leave your car at the airport and then rent it out for other travelers to use while you yourself are on vacation. If you've done it, did you get your car back in the shape it was left? If you've heard of it, but have never done it, what is the hesitation? Thanks ... [Posted by usctwin - Mar 08, 19:41]

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 23:12:02 GMT

When I was a kid, I would listen to my Gran tell me stories about how she could buy a weeks groceries & get change out of a shilling.

Inclusion of links in travel advise

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 22:48:54 GMT

Jambo! Greetings Admin: Question: As a fairly active travel advisor on VT, I frequently wrote lengthy travel advise to folks in various world destinations and I usually added links to activities and some recommended vendors who I knew and used and some I knew to be good. No promotions, and no personal touting of vendor friends. Just liked to include complete information that was researchable. Also, if that is OK, will the links be "clickable" or will a cut/paste be ... [Posted by Odinnthor - Mar 02, 14:48]

Move your travel back one day with the same airline ( not an option due to circumstances unable to change) 2. Spend a full 24 hours in stop over country 3.
