  1. I think we had a topic like this before, but had a quick search and looks like its been pruned. I was discussing this with my mate last weekend who said by February he would be ticking off countries 49 and 50 when he visits Macedonia and Kosovo (is that recognised officially?). It made me think about myself and disappointingly my total stands at 31. I attribute this to going back to countries multiple times recently that I know I will like (Egypt 4 times and Thailand 4 times for example). So what is your number, and what countries are they (if you keep a list). I know there are some very

    Favourite airlines

    As per title... Flying long haul, I can't really look past Emirates at the moment. Took 5 flights with them recently... 4 Economy class on the B777-300ERs and 1 Business class on the A380. The staff were very good, the food was very decent for a plane (still not wonderful mind, but better than the usual cardboard meal you get) and the IFE system was superb. Especially the ones that have been upgraded to HD Widescreen systems. The choice of films was outstanding and they had fairly recent cinema releases available to watch (Lincoln and Wreck It Ralph for example). Another bonus was

    2016 Holiday Plans

    Well, its that time again for my annual thread So, what has everyone got planned for 2016? I'm not going to make any bold predictions this year as best laid plans of mice and men often go awry I would like to keep up my tradition of doing at least one new country per year as a minimum but aside form that, I'm not sure. Japan is still on the list as is Vienna for a weekend away, but we'll see.

    Anyone ever been?
  5. Where are three places you want to visit at least once before you die? Places previously visited are fine! Oh, I can't wait to see what you all post!!!!!!! As of now, mine are: South-central India. I'm still undecided about the exact location, but there are some parks south of Hyderabad that really interest me --- although, on the coast, Goa also fascinates me. Carpathian mountains. I've been interested in some of the quieter regions of eastern Europe for a long time. There are still bears and wolves in the Carpathians. Bewdley, England. Personal reasons. Obsessed.

    Riga - Latvia

    Anyone ever been? I think I'm going for a stag do. 2 nights £150 inc return flights/hotels. What is there to do there? I don't know anything about it other than it's the capital of Latvia

    My holiday plans are starting to take shape a bit more now... Belgium/Luxembourg in December and Madrid in November. Now looking at where to go in September for a long weekend with the lads. Istanbul is looking favourite at the minute... So, good people, any experiences? Biggest question is logistics. Where in such a vast city do you recommend staying? We'll be doing the sights during the day but we want to be based fairly close to a lively area for nightlife. Doesn't have to be the glitzy high end bars and clubs, i'm quite used to a bit of danger and sleaze Cheers folks

    2015 Holiday Plans

    The start of December seems a good time as any to launch this annual thread. So, what has everyone got planned for 2015? Last couple of years have been a bit poor for me due to various reasons from buying a place of my own to good mates becoming parents and not having the time to go away. Want to try and remedy that in 2015. Want a few more city breaks... really fancy Reykjavik and Vienna. Also Budapest in tentatively pencilled in for March. For a main holiday then Japan and/or South Korea is high on the list (again!).
  9. Right, Had a crappy couple of days - the wifes nan died this morning after a pretty arduous 18 months of her slowly decaying in bed -it's actually quite a relief. Got a boy due in 6 days too, so thinking somewhere not too far on a plane upto 3 hours say. Somewhere warm for the wife, but not too hot >30c for me - I got the choice on honeymoon destinations, chose Vegas, Chicago, Toronto & NYC. Was thinking somewhere new, but I'd go back to Italy as we only visited there once and that was for a skiing resort, so not really too Italian. Seen Sorrento and that looks nice
  10. Gents and the occasional lady I'm going to be in the 'Bourg for a day at some point in the near future... midday to midday. So, who has been (looking at you Tony) and what can I expect and what can I do in the time? I'll be in the main Luxembourg City. From quick glances online, it seems to be very pretty (the Old Town at least) and the nightlife sounds pretty decent, if a little pricy. Cheers

    2013 Holiday Plans

    So what are your 2013 holiday plans? There have been quite a few threads about your favourite cities and travel experiences but what does the year ahead bring? For me.. off to Thailand and Hong Kong in 10 days. Only a whistle stop break though... 5 days in each as i'm meeting up with a mate who is travelling around Asia. Not sure about the rest of the year. Got lots of ideas but I'm at the age now where lots of my mates are settling down and having kids so I may have to start going away on my own! I'd like to see Japan this year. Also fancy the idea of a train journey across Europe. P

    Has anybody been to this part of the world before? I'm here right now, weather is beautiful, just not sure where the best parts are, any tips?
  13. Good Day fellow VTers!! My name is Brendan and I'm a regular reader of the forums. I wanted to take a minute and let you all know about some travel plans that a few people and myself will be executing. This is NOT a commercial advertisement, think of it more like an open invitation. In January 2014 I will be driving my van from Portland, Oregon, to Sao Paulo, Brazil. I plan on spending 6 months on the road and getting to Brazil in time for the World Cup (I've been to the last 2 WC's and I'm definitely not missing the Brazilian WC!). I knew I would be doing this trip the moment a CouchSurf
  14. Hi all. Next month as of the 9th June, I'll be starting on an interrailing tour of mid/West Europe. I'm starting in Berlin -> Prague -> Vienna -> Bratislava -> Ljubljana -> Milan -> Nice -> Paris Youth hostelling and all in the respective cities all booked and whatnot. But just thought I'd ask for peoples recommendations for interrailing travel, their experiences, how much kit/travelling stuff they took and the best things to do in said cities without spending too much. Cheers!
  15. So I'm off on my 'big' tour of SE Asia and Australasia next year, and am looking for some advice on travelling south through the Andaman coast. I will have 14 days to get from Bankok to Kuala Lumpur, and my provisional plans are as follows: Khao Lak - Use this as a base to visit the Similan Islands and Khao Sok National Park. Krabi - Relaxation, Kayaking into the mangrove forests and a bit of rock climbing. Ko Phi Phi - Monkey Beach, Bamboo Island. Ko Lanta - Relaxation and a bit more scuba diving. Then onwards on the train to Kuala Lumpur. Would really like to visit Tu
