That’s a wonderful time to visit England. I’ve visited the area in April-May several years ago and did a similar trip to what you’re describing (southern England, Wales and spent a week in London itself), and it was awesome. Note that this year you shouldn’t be in London in July-September, unless you’re interested in Olympics. […]

Is late May into Early June a good time to avoid the summer rush in London?

I’d like to go to London for two weeks and take a few side trips in England and Wales. It’s looking like from about May 21st to June 4th is when I can go. Is that ahead of the Summer travel season, students partying, etc., or will I get caught up in that? When is […]

It’s definitely safe, even with kids. With some basic street smart you should be fine. Ignore people that come up to you on the street and offer tours and only get them from places in established buildings. There are guards with big guns in some places but those are more for show than anything. If […]

Since I’m very interested in the type of aircraft as well as the destination, I would like to identify the flights that I have taken pictures of. So how can I identify […]

It turned out that while there were separate areas for men and women for the indoor spas, outdoors, there was only a mixed section, and a section for women only. So being in the mixed section was not so much permitted as mandatory! There is a slang term for males who only go to mixed […]

A rail pass, like the Eurail, is not always cheaper than buying tickets separately. It depends on your age and on how much and how far you want to travel. If you book in advance you can get more or less important discounts. The drawback is that you have to commit to an itinerary in […]

What is preferable, Eurail Pass or Buying Pass on the spot?

I plan to visit 3 countries in Europe during May: Paris, Italy and England ( in that order). I will be staying in each country for 1 week; at the end of the week I will be moving on from a country to another. Edit: Here are more updates on my research. This is my […]

Been there! It is a really nice exhibition, but I would have expected a bit more to see. It’s not scary at all, more exiting and entertaining in a ‘1950’s amazement’ kind of way. You wont see any “death and destruction” there, the worst thing is probably the Declassified U.S. Nuclear Test Film #55. I […]
