I think this is what you are looking for : http://en.ardennes-etape.be/tourism-in-the-ardennes. I have used the site mainly in the past to book cottages, but it contains a lot of information about activities.

12go asia has it all, stops and maps. you can hop off anywhere, but hop on mostly in provincial centers or large towns. unless you solve local logistic, there is no point in this kind of hops. how do you want to go from the provincial bus station, and where? they don't rent motorbikes there on every corner, actually don't rent at all. no taxis. no tuk tuk ...

At least for peak services, you can visit http://www.thameslinkrailway.com/your-journey/planning/gn-seats/ which has, for most stations, a table of peak-time trains showing the number of carriages and how crowded they are predicted to be.

This list is not complete, as I know there are more religious places you can stay overnight, but it is a start: http://www.monasterystays.com/ http://www.douaiabbey.org.uk/ http://www.women-on-the-road.com/stay-in-a-monastery.html I have stayed in several Benedictine monasteries in the past, one of the group had written one of the monasteries in the ...

Google Maps actually can be a good resource for this, though you'll have to do some manual searching. The key is to look for light green spaces in the map view (not the earth view...and this could be a problem if you're colorblind). When you zoom in sufficiently, in most of these the name of that area will appear. You can then click on the name to get more ...

Basically you are asking about the outdoor activities in a region spanning half a country, where outdoor activities are the main tourist attraction. That is rather broad and you certainly won't find an exhaustive list. A starting point would be the Commissariat Général Au Tourisme of Wallonia: http://www.tourismewallonie.be. The site is in French and I ...

Booking.com won't charge you. The hotel might. They would have to send you a bill using the contact information Booking.com provides and convince you to pay it.

Google.com/flights is a good alternative to see fast where are current flight carries to one city.

I use itasoftware.com, when you put in your city there is a button beside it that you can use to expand to airports within a certain number of miles and you can deselect the ones that are not of interest. To find closest international airport I use TravelMath.com

Let me explain TPM is ticketed point mileage which are the actual miles flown an a non-stop sector route from airport to airport in great circle distance. MPM is the maximum mileage permitted in fare calculation.MPMs are published in the IATA mileage once a year. This means that the TPMs must not exceed the MPM for a fare to apply with no surcharge. CUM ...

would have to agree with the above answer. Gumtree is a good place to start your search for a camper or travel van purchase in that price range. Listings from private and commercial sales yards. They have created a very thorough guide to campervan purchases as well, to avoid a dud; http://blog.gumtree.com.au/backpacker-guide-buying-van-aussie-road-trip/ ...

According to their website, they only release some tickets online, so "Sold Out" doesn't actually mean you can't go, only that the tickets released online have been sold out. From the website they suggest their tickets may be bought out by scalpers: Resellers of our entrance tickets are active on the internet. They buy up our entrance tickets online, ...

I recently put together a simple website to do exactly this. It's called Moment Mapper. It uses instagram photos that have been "added to the photo map". You log in with instagram and slowly your location enabled photos will trickle in and start appearing on the map. Any new photos you post on instagram will show up immediately. I'd love to have some ...

I have not found a site concentrating them into a list, but that is because the reductions are so common. Everywhere I have traveled in Europe people over 65 get reductions on museums and often on attractions. The age limit can be as low as 55 in some countries. Most of the time you have to proof your age, with a passport or with a dedicated '65+' pass. ...

If you are using the Google system of applications and mobile tools; it will automatically create a nice collection of related photos for you. If all you want is a nice "storybook" of your travels, this is another options that is available for free and (most importantly for me) does not require any input from you. It just happens in the background ...

Try the Fog of World app for iOS. This displays satellite imagery of the world shrouded in fog; as you travel, the “fog” dissipates from your path, showing you where you’ve been. I believe you can also add photos to the map, although I’ve never tried that. I find it fun to keep track of my travels this way. Some caveats for this app: it uses your device’s ...

It also took me some time to find a viable provider but after tedious searching I found Travelog. Features Plan your future trips and look at popular destinations Log your planned trips on the go using their app Upload travel albums follow/get followed by other travellers It's a very good service except it lacks one fundamental feature; the ability to ...

Moves is a very good app to track where you have been. It gives you a daily overview of your route on a map, the places you have visited and the distance you covered. I use it when on a city trip, so I can look up again the places I've visited. It does not drain your battery at all (at least not on my iPhone 5S), so definitely worth a try. edit: It also ...

This was exactly what dopplr.com used to do. When they went under, I threw together http://dopplr.org to allow for pretty much the same thing. It doesn't allow you to take notes, though. But I'm very open to suggestions on how to increase usability :) Edit: dopplr.org has a basic API that allows you to use your past and future travels in other places.

As far as I've ever found there's not something exactly like what you want, but there are a few workarounds. Previously I used WorldMate, it's more of an upcoming trip tracker rather than a where I've been but it does show you some of where you've been. There's also TripIt which is similar. But they're both heavily skewed for planning and tracking future ...

There cannot be a correct way to determine the relative cost of living, simply because each person has a different "basket" of needs. If you like it cool and damp, your HVAC costs are going to be a lot higher in Scottsdale than Seattle; if you like it hot and dry, it will be the other way around. But you did not ask for the correct way; you asked for a ...

If you want to travel within one country in Europe you can often use the train planner to get a combination of train and bus, like the Bahn site for Germany and Belgianrail for Belgium. In the UK you can use traveline for train, coach and buses, I am not sure about flights but it might work. Non of those keeps being that helpful when crossing national ...

I found my own answer shortly after posting. Although it's not immediately obvious how to do it, instructions are available from hotels.com customer service: Sign in to your Hotels.com account, go to Find bookings, fill out the form and Submit. Select View your reservation. Scroll to the Hotels.com™ Rewards box and select Sign in and attach this booking ...

out of my experience with Booking.com you have to pay only if the website asked you to provide your credit card number otherwise you will have the option of free cancellation

Booking.com asks for pre-payment in cases where they can deduct the cancellation fees if you fail to show up on that day or cancel the ticket. In other cases where they do not ask for pre-payment, then it is a free cancellation booking.

Since the closing of Railtime (the API used for NMBS/SNCB by among other Google Maps), now all public transport in Belgium searched with Google Maps will only feature buses and trams.

When I lived in Berlin a few years ago, I used to play basketball with the sport club of the Technical University https://www.tu-sport.de/index.php?id=31. It is open to people outside the university, too, and the costs are very low. Be sure to book in advance when the new semester starts/ends, because some activities tend to become booked out quickly.
