From galan98: "You've taken that trip to your dream destination. You've seen the sights, hit the highlights. You're getting around on the local transportation, eating, drinking and shopping off the well-beaten tourist track, to the point that you're starting to feel almost like a local yourself, except for one thing. You haven't met anybody. Great, but how to do that?"
From Bruce Burns: "Noting the tragic fire in Paris this week, I was reminded of attending a show at the Follies Bergere in that same city. This very old theatre was full to the extent that they opened up fold down seats at the end of each row effectively blocking egress for a panicked crowd should an emergency arise. Here are some tips for surviving a fire while traveling."
From CEL: "Hi! Just got back from Bali the beginning of April and it was fantastic! Wonderful people that were so welcoming and gracious. We saw many lone women travelers & it seemed like a very safe place with very little crime. My boyfriend & I stayed in Ubud but wanted to do some diving so we just took the 2-3/4-hour drive by the dive shuttle both times, and it was well worth it!"
From Gina Piero: "A friend and I traveled to Italy - first time for us both. We are size 16 and size 18, 5'10" and 5'11". We are fashionable, well groomed and hip. Some of the stuff we read on this site before departure left us expecting that the Europeans would be throwing stones at us because of our weight. As it happened, many of the men were throwing themselves at us."
From Gail54: "We are landing in Denver on a Sunday and leaving Denver on Friday, so we have four full days to visit this great state. Any suggestions on what is a must to see and what we realistically can see in four days? I am trying to put a driving itinerary together but everything seems to be such great distances from each other."
