Walk like an Egyptian

Looking to take a cruise and see all the sites in January or February. It’s for my 40th birthday so I want it to be special. I travel a lot and would prefer to this time pay someone else to organize everything except my flight. Food, excursions, getting to/from airport. I don’t want to think about it. Questions about if this particular tour company is ok and other assorted first time Egypt questions. [more inside]

Car free asphalt cycling paths in Europe

I am looking for car free cycling paths in Europe, that have smooth asphalt. It should be worth traveling to, so minimum length about 50 kilometers. It's okay if the cycling path crosses regular roads every once in a while, or if there is a small portion that is not asphalt, but at least 95% should be great asphalt, no cars. Two examples of what I'm looking for are the Flaeming-Skate in Germany, near Berlin and the Klarälvsbanan in Sweden, near Karlstad.

Offbeat fun for a day in Philadelphia

I asked this question last year about cool and quirky things to do with older teens in NYC for a week. Now we're going to hang out in Philly - but just for a day. I've only been to Philadelphia a handful of times so I'm kind of stumped for ideas. Hence this question! [more inside]

Adventures in the smoky Northwest

My partner and I have been excitedly awaiting this weekend for a weeklong-ish backpacking trip around the Three Sisters Loop in central Oregon...except that we're not so sure about it now due to the smoky air and possible hindered views. We'll take a last minute look tomorrow and decide whether we do the loop or not. We're looking for alternative suggestions for outdoor fun so we don't sit at home moping for a week! Details within...

Atlanta navigation tips needed

I will be in Atlanta next Thursday for the day. Driving down from NC. My question is, should I pick a MARTA park & ride station on the outskirts or drive all the way in to the convention center? I'll be arriving early afternoon & leaving around 9pm. Last time I was there I flew in & took MARTA train to the GWCC in 2010.

Capitol Hill cafe with a view

I will be visiting Seattle this weekend and want to visit bookshops and cafes. I am still missing the beautiful space that used to be Vivace’s old location overlooking the reservoir. Where else on Capitol Hill can I get coffee with a pleasant view or (if view is not possible) a nice environment to linger and read?

New Orleans with Kids

My wife and I are taking our three year old and our 6 month old Baby to New Orleans for this weekend. We want to do some activities / tours to see the city. We are especially interested in short bus/walking tours that are fun & interesting for adults but could keep our 3 year old entertained enough to not drive everyone else crazy. Kid-friendly Foodie and/or ghost tours would be amazing. There’s several websites that list kid tours but they are hard to differentiate. I’m hoping for some first hand recommendations. Any suggestions or tips on NOLA with kids in general?

Getting to the Appalachian Trail from DC

We're hiking a 100-mile section of the Appalachian Trail. We're flying in and out of DC, but our section hike starts way out at Big Meadows in Shenandoah National Park. We're taking the Amtrak from Harper's Ferry to get back to DC, so our return trip is covered. How do we get to our starting point? From Google maps, it looks as though there are buses and trains all through the area. DC-area MeFites, what combo of public transit, ride-share services, and walking/hitching can get us to the trail head?

Where can I store my luggage in Berlin?

On Saturday I’ll fly from Berlin to Australia with a large suitcase - I need somewhere to store it between approx 9 am and 7pm. I can’t store it at my accommodation and don’t have any friends who can help in Berlin. Do you know of luggage lockers or a luggage storage service in Berlin? Should ideally be accessible by public transport or cheap taxi (from Reinickendorf) Thank you!!
