    We have 3+ weeks to drive the Pacific coast from Portland to as far as we can get, with detours to Crater Lake NP and Yosemite NP.

    Luck you! A fab part of the world to loiter in a car. And its beer & wine country (but don't drink & drive)! I've done the trip several times, always prefering the "inland" route from the Bay Area (vs the beautiful coastal route through Redwoods, Humboldt & Arcata). Yes, you are starting in Portland, so just reverse the below! I like going up 80 toward Sacramento and at Vacaville taking 505 to connect with Highway 5 (stopping at Winters, CA for a good feed at the Putah Creek Cafe or Preserve. Depending on the time of day, Berryessa Brewing Co two miles west of Winters is a great place to sit outside on a hot day amidst the agricultural country.) Further up 5, a nice western town in the Trinity Alps is Weaverville. Great hiking and camping. Redding, nice farmers market on the Saturday nestled on the Sacramento Rive (and Calatrava designed bridge). Dunsmuir is a good overnight stop-you can sleep in an old train car! This is Shasta and Lassen volcano country, so if you like a good hike, take them on, or do a smaller day hike in Lassen's Bumpass hell to see boiling mud craters and geothermal activity. Further east is Lava Beds national Monument, chocka with old lave tubes and lunar territory. While staying on 5 takes you to Ashland (Shakespeare festival country) & Medford (gateway to the Rogue River valley read: good wine, beer), I like the turn off onto highway 97 to Klamath falls. Small town, but has a brewery and plenty of hotels/motels. From here, you can reach Crater lake but approaching it from the east. From here you can either go from 97 to 59 towards Eugene-great college town. or stay on 97 towards Bend- popular high desert outdoor town. If you stop in Madras, you MUST eat at Mi Casa. Yes, it looks dodgy, but its the real deal. As for the Yosemite bit, head south on 5 towards Sacramento. Either stay on 5 and head to Yosemite from 120. OR, better is go to Lake Tahoe (hike parts of the Pacific crest Trail), & take highway 395 south through gorgeous high desert/hot spring country. Bodie is a great ghost town near Bridgeport; well worth seeing an old silver boom town. Approach Yosemite from the less crowded eastern entrance. Enjoy! over 1 year ago

    I'm going to Peru in August and want to travel from Lima to Cuzco by train. Is this possible? Has anyone else got experience of this?

    Don't think there's a train. Most folks take a bus; it's a very long journey in one shot, approx 22 hours) but if course, you can break it up over a few days to see the Nazca lines on the coast before heading east inland to Cusco. If you are pressed for time, just fly, but it can be expensive. Alternative is to rent a car and explore at your own pace. You'd go through Pisco country south of Lima where there are lots of places to see how pisco is made and coastal towns to explore. Best bet for train experiences are between Cusco & Aguascalientes to get to Macchu Pichu. I actually preferred taking a micro bus from Cusco to Ollataytambo through the Sacred Vslley (about 3-4 hours), staying the night in Ollataytambo to explore the ruins there, then taking the train to Macchu Pichu. over 3 years ago

    How safe is it for a middle aged female to be out & about alone in Sao Paulo?

    Hello! I have been there a few times as a solo female business traveler and shared the same concerns for my first trip. I am assuming you are staying in a decent neighborhood (Jardins paulista, Itaim Bibi, HigienĂ³polis, Moema, Jardins Europa...) During the day i found it quite safe, with the usual big city precautions: no big flashy bag, flashy jewelery or designer clothing, no watch etc. I also made sure to ask the front desk about the immediate area to make sure it was safe as well. I used preprinted detailed sections of map from Google with the POIs I need to get to, and also used the free map from the hotel for a larger perspectove and lay of the land. I kept these in my clothign pocket or an easy pocket of my bag for quick discreet reference. In a pinch, I used pre-snapped screen grabbed photos of the neighborhoods, but tried to avoid whipping out my iphone in public unless I was at a nice restaurant/cafe. I always walked looking at who seemd to be walking along or just ahead of me or loitering and if I felt somethng fishy, i'd cross the street. i was there for work, so I did dress like a ot of the SP commuters and offcie workers, so I didnt easily scream "tourist', that helps i think. taxis: lots of Ponto taxis all over the city. When not taking the cab from the hotel or restaurant, these ponto taxis are safe and reliable-especially in the busienss districts. i never flagged one driving in the street. ATM: i had my PIN copied and someone started to have a field day with my ATM number-after i left the country! So, next gfo round, i made sure to only get $ from the airport ATM at arrival, then inside the bank lobby during banking hours. i think also the ATMs in the swanky shopping areas are likely targets of funny business, so i avoided going to the ATMs there. Oscar Freire area for example. Credit cards: OK to use in better restaurants and shops. they always have the processor table side and NEVER take the card away to process. Parks: safe during the day.and om weekends they oftem close roads for all the cyclists to enjoy car-free bike routes. Night time: i always took cans pint ot point. Oscar Freire area I felt very safe in walkign at ni about 4 years ago
