    Is Budapest as safe place to be alone for a female solo traveler?

    Budapest is a very safe city overall. Every city will have its problem areas but we spent 4 days in Budapest and would consider it a very safe place to be. There are several free walking tours and public transit is very easy to manage as well. Plus, the city is very walkable and bike rentals are affordable and easy to come by. about 3 years ago

    Is Jamaica safe now?

    We've been to Jamaica 3 times in the last 7 years and just returned from our last trip this past weekend. We've thoroughly enjoyed each of our Jamaica trips and enjoy going back each time. We've stayed in two different resorts in Montego Bay and another in Ocho Rios. If you are only spending your time at the resort, you'll have no problem in terms of safety. The staff will be super friendly and you'll have some great food. If you decide to leave the resort and visit the markets and other parts of town, you should be smart about things, like you would be in any foreign country. There is a lot of bad stuff happening in Jamaica, like many other countries out there, but most of the people are good. Just be smart and watch what you're doing. Go on tours with reputable groups, don't flaunt money or objects around and if someone offers you something too good to be true, it probably is. Enjoy! about 4 years ago

    I Will be spending a weekend in Budapest, I would like to know what are he must see there?

    Definitely agree on the free walking tours. We did them in every major city in Europe. We also rented bikes and went to Lukas baths and enjoyed a stroll through Margitsziget Park on the way where we enjoyed the largest cotton candy we've ever seen (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=436875306334959&set=a.338587989497025.76318.327706030585221&type=1&theater) about 4 years ago

    Best things to see & dining, 4 days in Budapest, married couple

    This is a little late but the baths are definitely great. We, married couple too, rented bikes and went to Lukas baths and enjoyed a stroll through Margitsziget Park on the way where we enjoyed the largest cotton candy we've ever seen (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=436875306334959&set=a.338587989497025.76318.327706030585221&type=1&theater) Definitely do one of the many free walking tours in the city as it's a great way to learn about the city and it's history. about 4 years ago

    We will be in USA for 12 months , what are the absolutely must sees and dos. We enjoy national parks and history.

    Ran out of space! - so much other history to the US...we haven't done much on the east coast but a lot of great things to see or do right along that coast - of course, Mount Rushmore in South Dakota is another site to see - Niagara Falls as well - New York City isn't a great place for an RV, but you can always take the train in for the day - so many parks to mention all across the country - and if you can fit it in, make a trip through Canada...Montreal has a great culture with a tonne of museums - I haven't been to eastern Canada but look forward to that road trip one day 12 months is a good amount of time, but it won't be enough, depending on if you want to travel slowly or see as many sites as possible. Any specific questions, just ask as there are too many places to put into one broad answer, but this is a start :) about 4 years ago

    We will be in USA for 12 months , what are the absolutely must sees and dos. We enjoy national parks and history.

    There are so many things you can put on this list. We are from Vancouver, Canada, but have had the opportunity to road trip across both the US and Canada on many occasions. You'll find 12 months won't be enough time for you but here's a few things to get the list started. Starting from the West Coast: - so much to see in California but the coastal highway is amazing. We went from San Francisco to the Oregon border, but even going from LA or San Diego all the way up would be great. So many quaint towns along the way - in Northern California near the Oregon border is the great Redwood forest with some of the biggest trees in the world. There's one you can drive a car through, but that won't work for your RV. The trees are amazing to see though - Once you cross the Oregon border, at the coast, there are the sand dunes that run for miles. An amazing natural site - San Francisco, Portland and Seattle are great cities to visit as well...each have their own beauty - Las Vegas is a place that just needs to be visited, even if you don't gamble. It's a uniqueness all on it's own - From there you can do the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon - though I don't recommend doing them on the same day. Spending a couple of days at the Grand Canyon is something to consider. - We drove from LA to Vegas and all the way to Nashville. There are some great National Parks there. You can get a pass for 1 year to visit all the parks in the US...I would recommend it - If you have an iPad, invest $20 a month and get a 3G sim card for it. We found it a great way to research things and learn about the areas we were visiting - Albuquerque, New Mexico has a Hot Air Balloon festival each year - Oklahoma City has done a great job honouring the memory of those who died in the 1996 Federal building bombing - If you make it down to Louisiana, New Orleans has a great culture to it - Haven't spent much time in Texas but Texas is like it's own country so you probably don't want to miss it - Memphis is home to Graceland, whether you're an Elvis fan or not, I've heard it's good - Nashville is home to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Tennessee has a lot of good history to it about 4 years ago

    Am travelling to London this weekend and need to know where to get SIM cards for phone and I pad. Am staying in central London Please help

    We were there last July and found O2 to be the best company for a short term plan. We didn't require a lot of minutes but wanted something to be able to make some calls and texts and have data on the iPad. I think we spent about 20 pounds or so. It wasn't a lot over 4 years ago

    What are the costs involved in walking El Camino de Santiago?

    Not much. You register for the camino when you arrive at no cost and then it's just food and lodging as you go. The camino hostels are just for those on the camino so they are much cheaper than elsewhere. Unless things have changed since 2006. I'm sure you can find more information with Google searches too. over 4 years ago
