Re: Greenland from six miles high!

Racing_snake ·
I agree it's a spectacular sight not to be missed and that there's more to Greenland that just the ice sheet. 2014 will see me on my 7th month-long visit in the last 9 years. I will again hike alone from Sisimiut on the west coast to a location north east of Kangerlussuaq (something like 110 - 120 miles) and then join colleagues doing wild goose research. By all means aim to set foot on the ground there and enjoy camping in the remote arctic landscape - being alone out there is a unique...

Re: Capital of Culture Series: Liverpool

DrFumblefinger ·
I'm ready for a visit. The Beatles history alone is worth the trip! Liverpool has a "reputation" as being a "dirty, industrial" city. I presume that was not the Liverpool you experienced, Rob?

Re: Capital of Culture Series: Liverpool

Travel Rob ·
Not only is Liverpool a great city to visit,but it has so many great places for daytrips that make staying there an excellent base. And to me it seems prices are half the cost of London. One thing Garry might expand on in the thousands of European tourists that are coming there for the day or weekend ,thanks to the budget flights. It has a very international feel to it.

I like GarryRF's spunk. Listen, whatever it's history, I have to admit that I'm intrigued to go visit Liverpool. I think it's an interesting and worthwhile travel destination. And the first ice cold pint will be on me, GarryRF!

Re: Where in North America is the Euro the official currency?

PHeymont ·
Well, here's a bit to add, about the largest place in South America where the Euro is in use: French Guiana, which is technically a part of Metropolitan France (even Presidential candidates visit to drum up the vote!). Therefore, the bridge completed in 2011 and scheduled to open for traffic next month over the Oyapock River, will be the first permanent road connection between France and Brazil!

Re: Family Friendly Attractions in Malta

GarryRF ·
On my first visit to Malta I was exploring the Megalithic Monuments when a group and their guide arrived. She was explaining to the folks the stones where blood sacrifices were made. So I stayed within earshot for a free tour - at a discreet distance. Then she turned and pointed at me ! " where that couple are standing is a Fertility Temple! " Whoooa !! We moved away quickly ! But too late - we had been chosen by the Goddess of Fertility ! That was on the 29 December - and on the 29...

Hello Jason and thanks for the interesting and informative post about family Malta. I am resident here myself and I agree with the family attraction side of the island. It's a fun place to visit and I do notice many families enjoying their time together.

Re: Ryanair: Sell the Extras, Give Away the Tickets?

PHeymont ·
I certainly remember People Express...the only reason I became familiar with Newark Airport. We used to fly to Buffalo ($19, $29, $39) and then rent a car to visit family in Toronto. Then we snagged $49 specials from NY to SFO...and while we were sitting on the plane realized we could have gone to London for the same price! Which we did the next year, but it cost us a bit more. PE didn't always make its schedule, and other things could go wrong, but the staff were unfailingly friendly and...

Re: British Parents Prosecuted For Taking Vacation During School Time

PHeymont ·
As an educator, I've always found this a difficult issue. Teachers are often frustrated when students disappear for family vacations when they need to be completing their studies or taking final examinations, but I doubt that prosecuting parents is the solution. That is especially so when parents are not given a choice by employers: if this is the only time the family can take time (especially for immigrant families who use the time to visit families "back home"), it is understandable that...

Re: Rome bars tourist buses from center

I sympathise with the authorities in Rome. On a recent visit to Berlin we found the constant stream of sight-seeing buses a real nuisance. Whether the ban might have unintended consequences, such as an increase in car traffic, is another question.

Re: Jama Masjid, Delhi (Where Gumbo was #256)

Professorabe ·
Delhi has a lot to offer in terms of interesting sites. HOWEVER, the air pollution is appalling, particularly in the winter. We will be in Delhi in March - when things should start to get a little better - but we have cut our stay there to a mere 24 hours. We would have liked to re-visit some places like Humayun's Tomb or the Jama Mosque, but in the end decided that we could not face the atrocious smog again. We will now leave on the earliest convenient train south.

Hi, guys! I'm glad you like the post and the city, too. Yes, it's really beautiful! @Travel Luver, it's a tough question. Depending on what would you like to do there? Visiting the city only or perhaps paying a visit to its surrounding area (which I highly recommend)?

If you're a sightseer and don't want to be in a constant hurry, I recommend 5-6 days for the first visit. Split is, actually, not a very large city, but has a plenty of historic sights and nice places to offer. You'll have enough time to explore the city in a relaxed tempo and doing it on foot would be the best, use taxi/bus only for longer distances. Including the daytrip to the area, round it up to 7 days. Also, Trogir is a charming small town pretty near Split so don't hesitate to take a...

Re: New Orleans—Museum Highlights Young Voices of Resilience

PHeymont ·
Thanks for, in a way, welcoming me back. My last visit was a grim one, working as a volunteer preparing flooded houses for rebuilding (or demolition) a year after Katrina. In many ways, I've put off coming back, in part in anger at how little was done and how long it took, and in part a fear of finding something like New-Orleansland. While I know nothing can ever be the same...and many things shouldn't be...I see, both through the report and through the children, reason to return!

This...I don't know what to call it. "List" is too small a word. Visual manifesto? Fascinating, the way a car wreck is fascinating. Japan was the first place I wanted to travel when I had a childhood friend from Japan. As an adult, I've had any number of opportunities to visit and haven't. I realized recently that what was stopping me was fear of giving offense. Kyoto has been the place that I thought I might brave my fears to see but this piece of municipal propaganda has wiped that thought...

Re: July 22, 2017: Comic statues, Bratislava, Slovakia

Professorabe ·
When my wife and I revisited Bratislava a couple of years ago, our last visit there had been some 30 years previously. What a difference! Our memories were of a drab, grey place and what we found this time was a pleasant, vibrant city with lots of interesting corners. We are going to Vienna in a couple of weeks' time. There is a good (and very cheap) train link from there to Bratislava and we will probably go back.

Re: Nov. 13, 2017: Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris

Hi DrFumblefinger, Monet is my favorite impressionist artist and loved this museum. We actually had to go back to Paris 3 times to be able to visit It was closed for renovations when we were there in 1999, and 2001. It wasn't until 2006 that we were able to see it. FINALLY. Happily I can say photography wasn't prohibited then, so I was able to take the attached picture of us. It was truly amazing and your post brought back many wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Nov. 13, 2017: Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris

Actually, you're both right...it just depends on when the visit was. French museums in recent years have shifted photography rules; at one time Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre were on opposite ends of the issue. Eventually, in 2014, the Ministry of Culture and a group of museum officials worked out a charter that encourages visitors to respectfully take pictures in museums and monuments, but allows measures such as banning selfie sticks, or pictures on loan from owners or museums who refuse...

Re: The Lure of Stonehenge

I've never written a review and used the opening paragraph to criticise a few idiots I may have encountered. Of which there have been many. Nor have I needed to draw on the bad experience of another to make a critical point. I've never heard it called "Boring" and I've been here for 60 years. I suppose this will add to the list of "Warm Beer" questions I find boring whenever I visit my American Family. Nice photo's.

Re: November 26, 2017: Ranakpur: The Most Delicate Jain Temple

You are absolutely right. Not only is Ranakpur a convenient stopping-off point between Jodhpur and Udaipur, it is also one of Rajasthan's gems. We spent several hours there last year exploring both the main temple and the adjoining one. There were a few other tourists there, but it seems that most tours bypass the site completely.

My wife and I visited this very attractive zoo with pleasing fountains and gardens. I don't recall hearing the roar of sea lions, but I did get a candid photo when a pelican snapped his bill at my wife Diane when she ventured to close to their property. While many attractions can be closed on Sundays, we always looked for a chance to visit a European zoo.
