    What are some of the better places to start a trip off in?

    Knowing from your other question that you're interested in lifestyle/long term travel, I'd suggest starting somewhere like Bangkok which is a hub for travel throughout SE Asia. Once you're there, it's easy to take buses, cheap flights elsewhere. I'm sure there's similar hubs in South and Central America, but I'm not so familiar with those places. over 4 years ago

    Second US passport - Leaving one at Spanish Consulate while study visa is in process.

    Hi Alan, thanks for the link. I should have qualified what I said - I've never heard of anyone having 2 valid passports for the *same* country at the same time. Until now. Good luck with this. It's certainly not common. over 4 years ago

    Lookin for lifestyle travelers to tell me how you make money enough to eat sleep and get around comfortably. Does blogging help a lot?/eBay?

    Hi Lea, Last time I went backpacking, I met a couple who had successfully used ebay whilst travelling to earn small amounts of cash and keep going. They were based in India and went to the markets once a week, took photos of items they thought were unique and desirable to a Western consumer and created an auction page for each. Only if the auction was successful, did they go to the markets, buy the item and then ship it to the winner. Biggest issues they said were picking the stuff people wanted to bid on (turned out to be jeans, not hand made sitars) and trusting the postal service to deliver it. The last point is a big risk. Also start really looking at the travel bloggers who say they make money. How do they do it? Does it really support them on the road? Nomadic Matt has some eBooks on the topic: http://www.nomadicmatt.com/travel-resources/ Don't be fooled! There's NO easy cash in travel blogging. And finally, for a really good look into the philosophy and musings of a Lifestyle traveller, I can't go past Solbeam. Dig around and you'll find some practical tips on how to financially manage it.

    What are some common gluten free meals in Cambodia?

    Lots of the meals come with rice... but you'll need to check for soy sauce in the dishes themselves. Most of the Noodle soups are made with rice noodles too. over 4 years ago

    What is the best transport option for getting from Charles de Gaulle airport to Paris (9th arr)?

    I travelled *out* to Charles de Gaulle airport from the Gare Du Nord train station... very easy. Bought metro tickets, hopped on the Blue line (RER Blue) and got off at the other end. I imagine it's just as easy in reverse. I don't know the 9th Arr, but my experience of the Paris Metro was that transfers between lines were easy, and the stations easy enough to get around. I found this useful page: http://parisbytrain.com/rer-train-from-paris-to-roissy-charles-de-gaulle-cdg-airport/ Particularly the link to the RER map at the bottom over 4 years ago
