I live in the UK and have done a fair bit of hiking over the
past couple of years and was looking at tackling the south
west coastal path all at once in the next comming months.

The path itself is roughly 650 miles and I wanted to ask if
anyone has already done this or done something similar and
what was their experience like ?

I have been doing some research regarding where would be the
safest and easiest places to travel, and have even talked to
a travel agent. But believe I can get some better advice from
my fellow travelers.

I am a 22yo female, I currently live in Honolulu, and will
most likely be leaving from here. I do not really have a
budget as I have been saving for a long time for something
like this. But I will most likely be staying in hostels and
cheaper living situations. I am not sure where to go exactly
but I have started a list. I am a very experienced traveler
and have been to many different countries, but have never
traveled alone, and would greatly appreciate any advice you
can give me.

I’m aware that airfare will be my largest cost, but I am
ready to commit to places that will give me the best
experiences and potential for growth as a person. Any advice
on locations, or places that I can skip are greatly
appreciated. Thank you!!

Also I plan on traveling around May or later of next year

Here is my list so far: Question marks are my
uncertainties… Sydney, Australia. Aukland, New Zealand (?).
Kyoto, Japan. Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand (?). Greece.
Vienna, Austria (?). Croatia. Italy (?). Dublin, Ireland.
Quebec City, Canada

The Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth, Germany just reopened its doors after 6 years of renovations.

Has anyone had experience with China Southern? They lost my
bag and cannot locate it. I live abroad and (almost)
everything I own was in that bag. Now they’re basically
saying maybe we can find it and maybe we can get it back to
you, but they haven’t mentioned any kind of clear answer on
how to handle this if they dont locate it. Also absolutely no
mention of compensation, which doesnt surprise me but it
concerns me. What do I do now? I dont have receipts for the
clothes and items in my bag. Am I screwed?

I’m going to Europe for the first time this summer in late
July/early August. It’s for 16 days total. The first 7 days are
for a conference in Copenhagen, but the other 9 days are
entirely for me to play tourist. While Europe will be new to
me, I’ve traveled fairly extensively in Central America and the
Caribbean for various reasons – research, vacation, etc.

  • Day 1: land in
    Copenhagen, get settled in hotel/network

  • Day 2 – 6:
    conferencing + a few half-days spent being touristy

  • Day 7: bus to
    Hamburg, evening in Hamburg

  • Day 8: tourist in
    Hamburg

  • Day 9: train to
    Amsterdam, evening in Amsterdam

  • Day 10: tourist in
    Amsterdam’s museum district (for sure hitting the Van Gogh
    Museum and Hollandsche Manege)

  • Day 11: tourist in
    Amsterdam’s Jewish Cultural Quarter and possibly hit the
    zoo

  • Day 12: train to
    Berlin, evening in Berlin

  • Day 13 – 15:
    tourist in Berlin

  • Day 16: fly out of
    Berlin

The start and the end are set – I have to be in Copenhagen for
6 nights for the conference and I’m flying out of Berlin
because I got a cheap ticket there.

The middle portion is flexible; I have hostel reservations, but
all of them can be cancelled. Amsterdam was the one city I
chose for myself, because I’ve always wanted to go to the Van
Gogh Museum. Hamburg happened to be conveniently located to
break up the journey and several German friends spoke highly of
it, so I added it in.

Questions:

  • Anything seem horribly off about my plan?

  • Any sites I should make sure to see? I have ridiculously
    long lists for every city, especially Berlin, so heartfelt
    recommendations would be very helpful in paring down my
    plans.

  • Best wine experience in Berlin? I plan on bringing home a
    bottle for my folks, preferably from Berlin as it’s my last
    stop.

  • Anyone got tips for efficiently packing both business
    attire and vacation clothes? This is new territory for me –
    all my packing tricks involve getting scuba gear into the
    smallest bag possible.

If you bought a non-refundable ticket, you won’t get a
refund.

If your travel plans are likely to change, you can buy
reufndable tickets from the get-go but those tend to cost a
lot more so not many people do it.

Depending on the terms of the ticket/airline (note, cheapo
doesn’t control any of this, they’re just the reseller), for
a fee you can often change the flight dates or cancel the
ticket and get its value deposited into a “wallet account”
with the airline. $125 per person per flight is a pretty
common fee.

Hi all!

My boyfriend and I are going to the Balkans for 3 weeks in
September (we are in our mid 20s, and love to explore nature,
culture, food, and music) and would love your help on our
itinerary. This is what we have so far in order of where we
will go first, again if you think order should be different,
let me know:

Dubrovik – 2 nights I’ve already been
here and other places in Croatia before before so don’t need
that much time, also starting here is a must due to flight
costs

Kotor, Montenegro – 2 nights

Budva, Montenegro – 2 nights

Mostar, Bosnia – 1 night

Sarajevo, Bosnia – 2 or 3 nights?

Over to Romania:

Bucharest – 2 nights

Transylvania region – 5 nights

We have an extra 2-3 days, would it make sense to stop in
Bulgaria – either Sofia or Varna? Or should we spend extra
days in one of those cities, or even add some cities in the
above countries that we didn’t plan on before?

Thanks all!

Ronda, Spain
