With beauty in cities, mountains, beaches and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, Thailand's tourism continues to bustle, a little over a year after the tsunami.
Greetings from freezing cold Canada (brrr!). Last week we left off in Sydney, Australia where it was summer. What a contrast, huh? It's amazing what a country can do to you. Sydney is where my dad and I finished up our incredible father-son vacation that also took us to Fiji. After a few days relaxing in L.A. my dad went back to the cold (and snow) of the East Coast. I followed shortly, to the cold of Canada.
Jason Sheftell highlights new offerings from Gate1, Picasso Tours and Go-Today that feature northern European capitals at surprisingly affordable prices.
It is true to say that no trip to Peru would be complete without a trip to the famed Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, located high in the Andes. But for many visitors, this and perhaps a short stay in Cuzco and Lima is the extent of their adventure to Peru. What they are missing out on is a Peru that is full of cultural, historical and environmental wonders, from the rainforests to the arid landscapes of the Colca Canyon, the Amazon jungle to the cultural centers like Arequipa.

From diana143: "I am hoping to convince my husband that we can afford a trip to Europe in the near furture but I need a little help. Since he is a left brainer (analytical) and I am a right brainer(not even close to analytical), a breakdown of the actual costs would be the best approach for him. Does anyone have or know of a spreadsheet that has a list of the standard or common costs incurred when travelling abroad?"
From rc: "I hate to bring up such a sensitive topic, but clearly its one that would apply to India. I had wholeheartly began planning a 2-week luxury trip to Northern India for this November/December having read the many posts here and having seen some of the wonderful looking hotel/palaces that can be stayed at along the way. Then I saw a film that illustrated the extensive poverty, begging and disgusting filth found around. In particular it showed dead bodies floating in the Ganges near Varanasi. This made me question whether I was nuts to even subject myself and my wife to this. It's not that we're prudish and have travelled throughout Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Morocco which too, reflect these qualities. I am now question however, whether India is just a place that is too extreme. While I know this may be a relative thing, nevertheless we are looking for a cultural, yet luxury trip. Thoughts and feedback would be very much appreciated."
From achtungx: "Why is the city of Kilkenny so often overlooked? I spent 3 weeks touring Ireland back in '98 and Kilkenny was a major highlight of the trip. The town is home to a great beer, is reknowned for the # of pubs it has per capita, has a wonderful storybook town feel to it, and has a centuries old castle in the middle of town."
From jackjack: "We plan to visit Phoenix, Sedona & the Grand Canyon in late March/early April. We have 2 children ages 13 & 10. Is the mule trip a good idea? Any lodging recommendations in Phoenix, Flagstaff or Sedona or Grand Canyon plus favorite things to do will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!"
From awaywego: "I haven't traveled in a while and am curious about the latest in airline domestic change fees for same-day travel. I hear a $25 fee is pretty standard now that stand-by is no longer an option -- is this realistic, or is there fine print involved?"
