Re: How do you buy your travel?

PortMoresby ·
There's been no mention, that I noticed, of consolidators for multi-segment air travel.

They use airlines with which they have contracts for the lowest fares so, short of a spectacular sale, will, as far as I can...

Re: Replacing iPhone Abroad

HistoryDigger ·
I do expect a tax. If it's terrible, my husband will do without a phone.

It was cheaper to ship our own car to Germany than to buy or rent one for two years. But, back to to phone...We will update this post with relevant news.

Is there enough cooperation among Apple stores that if the phone arrives in London after you've left that they could express-ship it to Apple at your next stop?

All A’board - Pick a Cabin, Any Cabin!

Vikas Bhatnagar ·
Let me just say, straight up, that no one really cares what kind of cabin you are in. By the time you are friends and meeting up for drinks and dinner, where you sleep is not really going to be much of a concern. And if the potential new friends do have some sort of an issue, are they really the sort of people that you are likely to hang out with? Generally speaking though, every cabin has its advantages and disadvantages. But when it comes down to it, it’s all about size. When it comes to...

Concerns about the rising number of cruise visitors to the Arctic

Louder ·
Cruise lines sell the chance to see Arctic wildlife and claim they can do so without causing harm. However, many Inuit and other indigenous people who have inhabited the Arctic for millennia are deeply worried. Tourists buy souvenirs and bring income but also a growing threat of sewage and heavy fuel oil pollution as well as the disturbance and destruction of wildlife, such as ships striking whales in narrow channels. Shrinking sea ice is allowing larger cruise ships to venture farther into...

Re: 5 Places for a Romantic Journey to the Virgin Gordas

Southernboho ·
I have to agree with your recommendations! Stunning beauty in every direction and the best snorkeling I've ever experienced. One of the smartest decisions we made on our trip was taking the ferry from Trellis Bay to Virgin Gorda and renting a car for the day. It was very freeing to explore the island on our own and take our time. I have to say, the BVI was the most romantic, most memorable trips we've ever taken. It definitely took us out of the box of our normal travel and helped us see...
