This looks like a fantastic trip and any reason to go by train is good one to me. Wondering if the place names (Adelaide, Alice, Katherine) recall days of too few settler women for the number of men?

Your photo reminds me of a cruise we just did a few months ago in the Chilean fjordland. When we approached cape Horn, famous for its stormy seas, we were in constant winds of 100 knots, with gusts of 160 knots. The deck was even emptier than your photo above would indicate! Nice photos, Islandman. Thanks for taking all of us aboard the Queen Mary.

Re: Calling Marie Antoinette: Your $75G-a-night suite is ready!

Travel Rob ·
When I saw this, I coudn't help but think of think of a teen who used to post on Frommers about luxury travel. I'll bet he'd love to stay at one of these rooms. I'm wondering also if some in the middle class aren't choosing to stay at lower end places and save their travel budget?

Re: Calling Marie Antoinette: Your $75G-a-night suite is ready!

PHeymont ·
I have to say that although I could afford to go up a bit, I always look first at the low-end because while the rooms tend to be small, they have the needed facilities, and are more likely to have the wifi and breakfast free. Why pay more; it looks the same in the dark. Different for a resort, I guess... Never been unhappy with an Ibis in Europe, or the Motel 6/Super 8/Comfort Inn type here. I'd rather spend the difference on good food...

Re: 7 Reasons to Book a Luxury Hotel for Your Next Travel

I cannot agree with some of your statements. For instance, I remember a trip to Southern India where we met another couple who had booked the same private tour, but they had gone for the significantly more expensive luxury option whereas we had chosen home-stays. They were actually envious because our guesthouses tended to be in lovely spots right in the middle of the action, while their 5-star concrete bunkers were often in sterile out-of-town locations - and lacked any character. We...

Re: 6 Things you must consider when hiring Luxury car rental for Delhi Tour

Does it actually make sense to hire a car for travelling around Delhi itself? Taxis, tuk-tuks, or the metro might often be more sensible choices. The latter obviously has limitations in terms of the places you can reach easily, but at least you don't get stuck in Delhi's horrendous traffic!

Transform Your House into a Luxury Home

Vikas Bhatnagar ·
Houses can be funny things. When you move into a new home, it can feel alien to you. You have yet to claim your mark on the place making it difficult to feel entirely at ease. On the other end of the scale after years of living in the same dwelling, the old feelings of love can be replaced by boredom and disappointment. It takes a lot of hard work and determination to create a luxury home that feels truly like it’s your own, but it is worth it. The Personal Side of Design You’ll know when...
