From LOTRHP: "Hi All, Please recommend your favorite place in Montreal to get delicious crepes. Your insight is appreciated!"
From Tom Trevor: "I have generally been an independent traveler; however, with Egypt, I decided to play it a little bit safe. I booked an '8 Day Super Saver with 3 Day Nile River Cruise' with www.gate1travel.com, and I was very pleased."
From alohaft: "In July 2004 my husband and I used United miles for two tickets on Aloha Air to fly from Honolulu to Rarotonga. At the end of December, Aloha cancelled all it's South Pacific flights. When I called United, I was told that the miles would be added back to our account, that the taxes we paid would be refunded and that the $100 processing fee per ticket would be waived, as the flights were cancelled by Aloha. The miles were indeed added back to the account but the taxes weren't refunded, and we were charged $100 processing fee per ticket."
From time2travel: "We rented a houseboat for a week and went around the 1,000 Islands area between the US and Canada. We had a fantastic time. Our first time, we went with our 2 boys who were 13 at the time and the second time we went with adult friends. Both times were great."
From kmccourt: "What is the best way to call home while in Europe? When I was in France five years ago, I remember not being able to use the calling card I had because I kept getting a recording that my call 'could not be completed as dialed' -- both my travel companion and I read and followed the directions but couldn't get it to work. Luckily, she had a different card that worked. I will be travelling to England, Belgium, Germany and France in May."
