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 ...

(A few years late, but) My favourite travelling hats are these squashy hats that roll up into a supplied bag, with a sprung coil around the edge, made of suede, leather, kangaroo or canvas, by Barmah of Australia. I think this UK distributor has a better website than the manufacturer. Prices are something like £33 (canvas), £40-50 (leather), £65 (kangaroo). ...

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 ...

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.

If you want to go trekking close to Oslo, I recommend Nordmarka, often just called Marka. Have a look at the official website here, for some information. There are many good starting points in Marka, including Holmenkollen, Frognerseteren, Sørkedalen, and Sognsvann. Many of which are easily accessible by tram or bus. Once in Marka, you can stay at some ...

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 ...
