Re: Boston in the fall - suggestions please!

PHeymont ·
That's good news, Mac! OK...the leaves start turning first in the north, moving south as the weather changes...but timing is always tricky because it depends on each year's combination of temperature and humidity. Here's a link to a site I've found useful in the past...it's from Yankee magazine, and includes a live map of the progress of the leaves as well as itineraries and more. http://www.yankeefoliage.com/ We haven't had a good leaf-peeping piece on Gumbo yet, so I'm looking forward to...

Re: Crashing the geocache

Janine ·
Hello TatToo, I live in Europe especially Germany. I do know Geocaching and of course the game is known here. If you don't have a GPS device with a European card in it you can use your mobile phone as long you have the geocaching app. Before your son goes to Europe just with that mobile phone, make sure he looks for geocaches in areas he will be first and download the map and the cache itself. Even if you don't have an Internet connection they can use it via GPS. I did it in USA and it has...

Re: How'd We Live Without Travel Apps?

Sunny ·
I love Yelp as well, and there is a app called Happy Hours. It shows me restaurants with their own happy hours and happy hour menu. I also like hiking trail apps. Those apps tells me hiking trails in the cities I am traveling in (in the US). I recently tried Wishbeen. It is a web application though. It's a travel planning and sharing web. I like it a lot because it helps me browse travel itineraries made by other travelers, and I can easily modify them for my own trip. It also has a map...

Re: Renting an apartment in Europe

PHeymont ·
John mentioned the Google street maps...really a very good way to check out a neighborhood, since it has more than just the maps! On top of the zoom scale on the map, you'll see a little orange man. Drag him onto a street on the map, and you'll see photos of the street. It takes a couple of moments to get used to maneuvering, but you can go up and down the streeet, turn and face the opposite direction, "walk" around corners, and zoom in and out. You can use the Windows snipping tool or other...

Re: Renting an apartment in Europe

PortMoresby ·
Armed with the street address, online maps and Streeview you can certainly see all you need to know about a neighborhood. If it looks spiffy and interesting it's a safe neighborhood. If, on the map it's in close proximity to something you'd rather not be near then look on. See well dressed residents on the sidewalk and inviting bistros? Good neighborhood. Auto repair shops and shady-looking characters? Maybe not. It's not difficult.

Looking for a multi-destination map program

PHeymont ·
I'm trying to find a program that will let me plot out, and eventually print, a map of upcoming trips. I've looked at a number, and each has a problem, the most common ones being limited number of destinations, and no ability to make one stretch off the route car/rail and another by air. For example, I will be arriving in Rome, flying to Palermo, driving around Sicily, taking a train to Naples and then flying to Nürnberg, and continuing onward with more stops. Obviously, Rome to Palermo and...

Re: Flight Attendants favorite foods

Some of those are clearly front-of-the-plane choices! In economy, I've taken to describing the meals as sharing an important characteristic with school lunches: Everyone complains, but they're really not bad at all. Just recently, though, we had upgrades on Qatar that put us in a different food world. A la carte meals, nicely-plated and served (no plasticware!) and it may have spoiled me.

Re: Flight Attendants favorite foods

I've spent a few flights at the front of the plane, and they clearly care to do a decent job with food up there. But if you're paying a thousand dollars extra for that seat (not counting upgrades), you're better of using that money to buy a bunch of great meals on your vacation in my humble opinion. I've had some pretty bad airline food at the back of the plane, PHeymont. On a recent flight from Amsterdam, the food was so bad my wife and I couldn't eat it (we keep some Protein bars at hand...
