How to do it? Probably almost as many possible answers as there are travelers. My approach may not work for others, or they may find it distasteful: Pay off all debts including late wife's medical bills. Get rid of TV and car; learn to bicycle or walk everywhere. (Bus/train/car rental/plane only when time is a problem.) Get medical care from the U.S. ...

Great question and answers. In terms of accommodation, I didn't see house/pet sitting option listed yet. It may be a new(wer) thing since the question was posted. There are several sites where you pay an annual fee and have access to housesits all over the world. The owners of the home leave to travel themselves and sometimes even leave a car. You have a ...

It can save you a few bucks, but it's probably not nearly as good a deal for you as they claim (note that there are other similar passes with different offers as well, those should be evaluated separately). The CityPASS folks promise 40% savings, which sounds pretty good, but there are some caveats. Significantly, that two of the included attractions (the ...

I found this and this. So, I think these are the best prices you can get in Denmark with a subscription. Though, the prices maytham-ɯɐɥʇʎɐɯ has mentioned for CBB are pretty good. I just cannot find them anywhere.

I found myself in the same situation: my girlfriend is away from me and we try to travel often. So I've built a tool to search for flights to a common destination: http://destination.smoogly.ru/

There is a good collection of sites, however be aware that these are mostly in German, so Google translate might be useful. Here are some examples but there's more. At least travel-dealz is somewhat transparent about their sources so check where they get their inspiration from and follow these as well. Also they typically publish vacation/hotel deals as well ...

The answers posted are in line with my experience. I recently traveled in a 2014 Audi A6 3.0 TDI on a trip to pick up my daughter at college. Round trip was about 800 miles. On the roof was a Rhino Rack with oval shaped cross beams and on the rack was a mountain bike and Yakima box filled with items such as duffle bags, books, etc. Inside the car were ...

Google flights can do this, you can select airports, places, countries, continents or just "Everywhere", you can also select interests (eg, Outdoor, food, etc) You can set a price range, and then see on the map where you can go. I spent a day in Copenhagen for about £20-30 thanks to this. (and it also used to have a really nice bar chart for each ...

I am a fan of Adioso, it allows you do all of what you've asked for, the only catch is you have to specify at least a city in the departure field, but any other field is capable of accepting broad values. You can specify a time, or chose "any time". For the destination, you can specify a city, a country, etc. You can then sort the results according to the ...

WhichAirline has a similar functionality to whichbudget as far as I can see. You can enter countries but it might give you an error that this search is too broad, in that case it might help to search to "Anywhere" and then sort the results by country. Also Skypicker might be useful. You can do countries or draw circles on a map for departure/destination ...

Skyscanner allows what you're looking for. Just type the country of origin and destination. It even allows you to set the destination as all the world instead of country. In Skyscanner you will also be allowed to make broad searches regarding time. You can specify the time windows of your flight as specific days, but also as a month (eg.: departing in ...

Far and away: rent a car. The rental market in the DC area is very competitive. Last time I was there, in March, I paid $12 a day for a Hyundai. Gas in Virginia is as low as $1.30 a gallon. Don't let them sell you add-ons, that's where they getcha!

You might want to check out Rome2Rio, which is often useful for this type of query. The cheapest itinerary they show is: DC Metro (buses & trains) from Dulles to Union Station MegaBus from Union Station to Hampton, changing buses in Richmond, and Hampton Roads Transit from Hampton to Virginia Beach, transferring in Norfolk. The MegaBus will cost ...

I think your question is too broad to be answered well but this has already been discussed on meta and apparently I was in a Christmas mood back then. However I think your question is not well-posed. First, climbing crags (national parks and parking fees apart) are openly accessible as part of climbing philosophy. I have heard of some cases in SE Asia ...

From this article from 2012: The [Brazilian state] defines those in the middle class as people who live in households with a per capita monthly income of between R$291 (US$145) and R$1,019 (US$500) and have a low probability of becoming poor in the near future. Today, those dollar amounts are closer to double the reais mentioned in the quote ...

The best solution would be to search for transportation to Indiana University so for example: Go Express Chicago Catch a Ride Rome2Rio Rural Transit Hoosier Ride Given the number of options now it is also worth mentioning that you could simply drive to Chicago meet your friend and drive back.

The conditions for the Charles Schwab card remain almost as good as indicated in @holden's answer from 2011. There are still no fees, and still total reimbursement of ATM fees. However, the fine print says that the conversion rate will be between 0.10% and 1.0% in their favor relative to some benchmark, depending on amount and currency. This is my primary ...

No, you can't, because no such airlines exist. [Transport Canada] requires domestic air services operators [...] to be majority-owned and controlled by Canadians. [ref] You could book a flight from Vancouver to LA on a US airline, of course. And might be able to book a flight to LA from Toronto via Vancouver through a US airline (through codesharing) ...

You can buy the ticket from United, and it will be on "United Stock" (the e-ticket will start with their numbers, once upon a time it would literally have been printed on paper with their logo) even though it will be on "Air Canada metal" for the first and possibly second leg. It will be called something like United 4321 operated by Air Canada. This is how ...
