You basically have three options: Amtrak. Take the Cascades train from Vancouver to Seattle in about four hours. The big benefit here is that the train isn't nearly as affected by car traffic at the border, which can be very lengthy especially going into the US. This is because you actually clear US immigration at the train station in Vancouver before ...

In addition to Michael's answer: it's (in theory) also possible to hitch-hike. You could hitch to the border, walk across (or journey with the kind soul who picked you up), and continue on. If you're worried about walking across the border - I've done it myself in the past and while you may get some additional questions, it's entirely possible - there's ...

The T3 Terminal is open throughout the night and you should easily be able to move around anywhere publicly accessible inside it. If you have a visa, you can just as easily go out. Since you mentioned you have a domestic flight, I'll assume you do have a visa. Unfortunately though, there is a lot of hustle and bustle due to international flight departures in ...

There is no DART that serves the airport (at least there wasn't 2 years ago). You'll have to take a bus or a taxi to get to Dublin center. As to where to take your oldies, it is kind of hard to suggest without knowing them or what sort of activities they like to do. Usually old people tend to be more religious, so perhaps, showing them the St Patricks ...

The Guide to Sleeping in Airports has an entry on DEL.

Here are two hotel bars where you can find quality cocktails (fresh ingredients, top shelf liquor, skilled bar staff): Soaked at the Mondrian Soho hotel - they have a great punch program Gallow Green is a rooftop bar at the McKittrick Hotel. They have a serious classic cocktail program and occasionally the servers will take on characters from a bygone era ...

SAMS SNOOZE AT MY SPACE may be what you are looking for. Be advised though. IGI Airport like all airports in India restricts passenger movement. Some areas are strictly meant for international transfers only. Also, check out IGI's Aiport Hotel.

Abelour - Craigellachie is kind of the heart of the matter as you'll likely want to go to the "major" items like Macallan. For another view, don't forget Scotland is both bonnie and pretty compact ... you could very much just stay in Aberdeen. It's only an hour or two drive. (Stunningly beautiful, of course.) It's perfectly commonplace to go to Speyside ...

Rossio / Chiado area are both very good options. And so is near Parque Eduardo VII though I have some comments here: If it's near the Rotund (Marquês), it's practicaly downtown, it's perfectly walkable. It's no longer than 10 min for Bairro Alto. You have the begining of Avenida da Liberdade right there and right after starts Rossio. You can find many ...

Generally speaking, in the winter, the further north you go, the shorter the days are so Bruges is even worse than Vienna in this respect (night might fall a bit earlier in Vienna because it is in the same time zone as Bruges, despite being much further east, but the sun also rises earlier and the days are definitely longer). In coastal northern cities like ...

There's a great view trail at the superfund site (Pritchard Park) and Rockaway Beach but really most of the trails do not give a view of Seattle.

Assuming you want to see some of the city's highlights, but don't want to walk too much, then I'd say your best bet is a hop-on, hop-off bus tour. This will let you see much of the city, learn about it (there's a guide on board giving commentary), and will let you get between the tourist destinations you might want to visit. I've heard good things about the ...

It might not fit in the timing of your weekend visit, given the route you are planning. Were it me, I'd rather go to Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples before Etna, although I'd even consider both. Actually, I'd probably head to Etna, then down to Agrigento. I'd see the Valley, and then relax on the Southerly coast and see what the waves are doing.
