    What is the best way to get from San Francisco to Vegas?

    9-10 hours (without traffic), and not an interesting drive. I would fly and rent another car in Vegas. Or break the trip... Drive down the coast (gorgeous) to Santa Barbara (lovely town) or L.A. (loads to see and do) for a few days, and then drive the rest. over 6 years ago

    what is the cheapest way to send ski bag from Geneva to Atlanta?

    We're looking into this the other way... from L.A. to Geneva. Take it on the plane and they'll probably charge $25-50 each way. We're going on several flights though... so we may buy used equipment when we arrive. over 8 years ago

    Good group or place to practice conversational French?

    http://www.wice-paris.org/conversation-group. I also took day trips and classes in English) with WICE. A conversation-based French class would be good...I took classes at France Langue--a small school with small classes and most of it was conversation using film, tv, news, etc., and they had group outings. Teachers were great. Learned a lot--more than at Alliance Francaise, which was mostly book learning. over 8 years ago

    There's an Amtrak train station in Anaheim. It's a 2 hour ride by train. You can get all the information you need, and plan the entire trip on www.mta.net. --Patty over 8 years ago

    Is there a restaurant chain with good food at reasonable prices in switzerland?

    Manora is a cafeteria-type place that's clean and has reliable food very inexpensively (and decent coffee). If you're looking to save money, this place is all over the country (at least the French-speaking area, which I know a lot more about because I go every year). There is usually one inside the Manor department store, but sometimes they're separate. A cheap way to eat is also to grab the kebab sandwiches at outside kiosks...cheap and yummy. Also crepe and sandwich kiosks are a good bet. over 8 years ago

    Buying a snowboard (new/used) near Lausanne

    I'm going to answer my own question here 'cuz I asked some Swiss friends about it, and they said to try www.ricardo.ch. It's kinda like craiglist.org for Switzerland (they have craigslist there, but not many folks use it). Haven't found the right size snowboard yet, but still looking! over 8 years ago

    The 10 Best non tourist things to do when in Paris

    Go to rue Montorgueil -- it's a market street near Les Halles and the St. Eustache cathedral. All the tourists go to rue Mouffetard and rue de Buci, but Montorgueil is locals. L'Escargot restaurant is famous, but pricey. But don't miss Stohrer Bakery up the street...awesome pastries and croissants...especially love the canele' pastry. They used to make the croissants for the kings--sign out front. over 8 years ago
