    I am traveling to Africa for 6months in August, would love any helpful tips and suggestions as am traveling as a solo female.

    There is a really lovely cheetah farm in northern Namibia called "Otjitotongwe Cheetah Farm". I dont know if you can volunteer there, but may be worth contacting and asking. Nearby is also a Himba orphanage, but again, I dont know if you can volunteer. As a sole female, you may want to find a group to start out with and gain some confidence travelling through those countries, especially if starting in Morocco. Remember to be sensitive to the culture and not to draw too much attention to yourself. over 7 years ago

    Trekking Langtang Region

    Oh Yes Yes yes! This was my first ever Nepal trek (about 18years ago now - gulp) and it was my favourite. We went when there was a festival on, so we had to go the alternate route and it was quite difficult. We started at Chisapani then onto Kutumsang, Tharepati, Gosainkund (that was the hard part), Sin Gompa, Lama Hotel, Gora Tabela, Langtang, Kyangin Gompa, Langtang, and then back to Kathmandu via Dhunche. From memory it was about 5weeks all up with a week in Kathmandu either side. An amazing trek, absolutely stunning. You can do the tea house trek which saves you carrying a lot of gear, or you can go with guides and camp like we did. almost 7 years ago

    Bali (Indonesia) Multiple Entry Visa for Australians Query

    Thanks Travel Sheikh. I should have been more specific, I am an Australian passport holder. Its slightly different than for US passport holders. I know many years ago you could purchase a 7 or 30 day visa, but you could not depart and reenter Bali within this time. I can only assume this has become stricter since the Bali bombings. over 7 years ago

    Is it safe for an american to travel around europe in a few weeks in light of the worldwide travel alert?

    The travel alerts at the moment are more related to Northern Africa and the Middle East. You should be fine in Europe. about 6 years ago

    How safe is Bali at the moment from Terrorist attacks? We are booked to go in July, 2011. We are not nightclubbers and won't be in Kuta!

    Feeling sorry for you Steeliepete69. You obviously didnt venture outside the tourist traps of Kuta. I'm quite the discerning traveller and absolutely love Bali. I never go to the bogan haunts in the Kuta region, just like I steer clear from the bogan areas of Sydney. over 7 years ago

    I really want to spend may holiday in tropical-exotic island. Can you recommend me best places to see in some tropical island?

    If you want to go to Indonesia - strongly recommend the north west part of Bali. Pemuteran is a stunning little place, quiet and some beautiful beaches there. Or - Nusa Penida just off Bali. Or - my other new favourite place in the world, Flores. Fly into Labuan Bajo and take a boat to Kawana Island. Absolutely heaven. over 7 years ago

    I am planning my honeymoon and am thinking of a great deal. Currently I am thinking of Santorini, Fiji, Bali or Maldives. Please recommend??

    Currently in Bali - I could think of no better place for a honeymoon than a quiet private villa by the beach in Bali or Lombok (one of the Gili's) or even Nusa Penida. over 7 years ago

    png infos please

    Hi Jacques, My only advice about your trip would be to get some planning and booking done first. PNG is not really the place to turn up and hope for the best. I assume you'll be flying into POM first and then a flight to Vanimo? Rather than wander the streets finding an agent, do an internet search before you leave and make contact. Maybe even ask them to collect you from the airport and drive to the agency in town so you can sign your paperwork. I really love PNG, despite a horrific experience there in 2010. The people of PNG are genuinely beautiful caring and very sincere people. In saying this, I also felt a little scared there, I have a wealth of travel under my belt and PNG was probably the scariest, most tense place I have ever been to. Be cautious while you're there - don't drop your guard just because you're on holidays. I just can't stress this enough in PNG. If your country has the service, register with the consulate as well to let them know you're there. (Australia service is through DFAT and Smarttraveller) and also make sure you have a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Enjoy your trip! Lisa about 7 years ago
