    Where are some of the best views of Loch Ness?

    The beach at the Dores Inn (head southwest of Inverness on the B862) has a spectacular view of Loch Ness. The Inn has excellent food, and if the weather's nice, you can hang out outside and play with the stones on the beach. about 7 years ago

    Which places can't i miss while in scotland for 2 weeks?

    We stayed on Loch Ness (rented a house) and drove around - Inverness has a lot to offer, Culloden (LOVE IT!), Cawdor castle, Clava Cairns, watching dolphins at Chanonry Point. Definitely drive around Glen Affric. Follow the Caledonian Canal. We loved Glencoe - and Mallaig. The Islands (Skye, Eigg, etc.) are incredible. One great website is TravelingSavage.com - beautiful photos, great advice, focused a lot on whisky ;) There are so many great places - 2 weeks is short!! over 7 years ago

    Must do with children in Ireland?

    SO many things! Where are you headed? And there's a great website, called Ireland with Kids. You can also check out IrishFireside.com. We loved staying on the Ring of Kerry - climbing around Staigue Fort, getting chocolate from the Skellig Chocolate Factory, seeing history at Derrynane house. Definitely tour the Gap of Dunloe. I wrote about free things to do on the Ring of Kerry: http://www.wanderingeducators.com/best/traveling/10-free-or-almost-free-things-do-ring-kerry.html Our daughter was also entranced with Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. Worth a visit! over 7 years ago

    A friend & I are planning on traveling to Fiji to explore & island hop for the summer. Any tips? Cheap extended stay/camping/hostels? Thanks

    The first resource you should look into is Moon Guides: Fiji. It's the most comprehensive travel guide I've seen, and author David Stanley (southpacific.org) is an incredible resource. Find him on g+ and get some direct answers, too! over 7 years ago

    What is there to do in Michigan?

    Oh! There is so much to do in Michigan. In Grand Rapids, head to the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park - it's an incredible experience (eat at One Stop Coney Shop). Along the Sunset Coast (west side, Lake Michigan), there are many beautiful beaches and small towns worth discovering (my favorite is Saugatuck). Up in Traverse City, there are tons of cultural events, beaches,wineries, great food, family fun. Both Ann Arbor (UM) and East Lansing (MSU) have great college campuses, sporting and cultural events, and of course good food. Visiting Mackinac Island (right off the top of the lower peninsula) is an out-of-time experience. Great jazz at the Grand Hotel, no cars, ride bikes around the island, eat fudge! In the Upper Peninsula, you probably won't swim as much (cold water!) but the scenery (and smoked fish) are delightful. And then there is Detroit - so many great museums, cultural events, excellent food, shopping. Where are you headed? over 7 years ago
