Things to do in Amsterdam?

P5080116_exp01

All goes well, I would be in Amsterdam next weekend. I newer been to Amsterdam (besides Schiphol and scaled copy in Legoland). Can you suggest, what should I do, where should I go, what is 'must see' in Amsterdam? I would have three full days and coming by car. I'm photographer, interested in history, architecture and good food.

Budget tips?

I'm looking for some budgeting tips, and wondering if anyone could help. I'm referencing a book I've used for Europe before on suggested daily budgets, but as it's now a few years out of date and I'm getting mixed answers searching, I thought I'd come here and ask.

What would be a decent daily budget for:
-Prague
-Bratislava
-Lviv
-Kiev
-Chisinau
-Bucharest

I'm not including hostels or travel between cities in my daily budget, and am hoping around 50€ a day will cover food, some museums and picking up a small souvenir here and there. I'm not a drinker and generally eat fairly cheaply when I travel.

Also, if anyone who knows what the average train ticket would cost from city to city to give me an idea, that would be cool as well! :)

Thank you so much!

Gdansk

I am heading to Poland November 24th and will visit Gdansk. If anyone knows of oddball small museums, armor museums or antique markets; please let me know of their location.

tips for Paris?

We've rented an apartment in Paris for a week later this fall, and I'm interested to hear about your favorite places to visit and things to eat. :-)

In particular, I have a sensitivity to milk protein, so have to avoid cream sauces, cheese, etc.. I know that's kind of a big component of French food :-( (my loss!), but I think stopping at the market for beautiful ingredients to cook for myself will help.

Anyone know if non-dairy milks (soy, almond, rice, etc.) are readily available, or will they think I've dropped in from Mars? I managed quite well in Rome a couple of years ago, by dumping loads of sugar in my espresso because I couldn't use the steamed milk.

Bucharest is beautifull!!



In Bucharest you can find the second largest building in the world, Palace of Parliament.

Olso the are a few hotels near Palace of Parliament.

Black Forest

Hi everyone!

I am going to be in Germany in about a week and a half. I know that I will be visiting Rothenberg ob der Tauber as well as Frankfurt. I really want to see the Black Forest while in Germany, and this is the only tour I can find: http://www.viator.com/tours/Frankfurt/Black-Forest-and-Strasbourg-Day-Trip-from-Frankfurt/d489-5326STRASBOURG

I was looking for something with a bit of a hike or walk in the forest itself with a bunch of stops for black forest cake. Are there any towns you recommend or other tours that you know of for a really good Black Forest experience?

Thank you so much; truly appreciate all your advice!

København (Copenhagen)

P5120019_exp02

Since somebody was recently asking about Copenhagen, here are some street pictures from last weekend.

I dislike the English name - Copenhagen, it just sounds strange, København makes much more historical sense and sounds better.

Hiking in Madeira

Monte Palace, Madeira

Can you recommend books (in English) describing walking routes on Madeira island? Do you know a good English-speaking guide? Do you live on Madeira and would care to show me the mountains?

I was there almost ten years ago and only have basic knowledge of Portuguese. I will have a car, so traveling is not a problem.

Hi!

I've just got a quick question - I'm planning a trip to Norway, Denmark and Sweden next year. Googling it, I've found most resources say $100-$150 a day is a decent budget, but I thought I'd check here anyway. We'd mainly be in Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm with maybe a couple other cities added if we have time/budget allowing.

I'm wondering if $125 a day per person (not including flights between cities) would be a decent budget for someone who doesn't drink/go to clubs, and who is okay with staying in a group/dorm room in a hostel. Food-wise, I usually just pick up a quick bite to eat here or there, I don't really go to "sit down"/pricier restaurants.

Any help is appreciated! :)

recommendations?

Hi,

I need suggestions for the second half of a trip coming up in about 2 weeks. I'm staying in Belgium for the first week (there's tons of stuff I want to see, plus I can use it as a home base to take day trips to Paris or Amsterdam if there's time). I'll have three or four days left at the end -- enough time to see one other city. I could take the overnight train to Prague, or spend more days in Paris or Amsterdam, or...?

Do you have any suggestions? If you had 3-4 days to visit one city in Europe, what would it be?

Thanks in advance.
