    Is it safe to travel to Egypt in August?

    Some World Nomads information that may be helpful: http://adventures.worldnomads.com/destinations/64/Egypt.aspx http://www.is-egypt-safe.com/ I think tourism means too much to their economy to jeopardize tourists with domestic political turmoil. I'd be OK with going. about 8 years ago

    I live in suburban Chicago. I have 1 week vacation in august. Staying in the USA. I'm middle aged. How to spend that week. Any suggestions?

    A very broad question Johnny! What do you like to do? Outdoors? Food? History? Art? Road trips? City/country? Etc I'm in the Bay area, so biased, but there is a lot to do here from the architecture of the Painted Ladies, the gorgeous Golden Gate Park, Presidio & Golden Gate Bridge, food options galore (see other San Francisco type questions and answers), wine country, Sausalito by Ferry, Alcatraz, Hiking in Marin's Mt Tamalpais etc Other USA spots I could easily spend a week are: Portland Or and the Oregon coast and wine country I just got back from the Denver area, no shortage of outdoor places to enjoy in the Rockies including Boulder, the school of mines in Golden, Aspen, catch a baseball game, A road trip around Savannah, Ga and Charlestown, with a dip over to Atlanta The DC area and including visits to Baltimore and it's revived harbor ( watchman Orioles game in the Camden Yards stadium!), side trips to Fredericksburg, naval academy in Annapolis, drive around the Chesapeake and enjoy great seafood (soft shell crabs!) Boston area ( Lexington, Arlington, Concord), water trips in the Cape, side trips to Portsmouth New Hampshire and Portland Maine. Or dip to Cape ( though it'll be crowded!) Lots of places depending on what you like doing! Hope this helps inspire ideas. about 8 years ago

    How friendly are the nighttime streets in Paris?

    Do you mean for walking around? Like any city, it depends on the neighborhood, but I've never had an issue ambling about many of the central neighborhoods circling the Seine, both as a solo female and as a 2+. Below are two links on Paris safety. One is written by World Nomads editorial staff, and the other is link to a similar question in this forum: http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/73442/France/Crime-in-France http://answers.worldnomads.com/questions/france/3310/how-do-you-avoid-pickpockets-in-paris about 8 years ago

    We're traveling to Paris in August and have been told the French don't like tourists who don't speak their language. Is this correct?

    I do think that is more a stereotype than reality. I've never had an issue with my efforts. World Nomads has free language guides in MP3 and for iPhone that can help you beef up on same basic phrases before you go and while you are there: http://journals.worldnomads.com/language-guides/ about 8 years ago

    Is it worth climbing the Eiffel Tower?

    I agree, as touristy as it is, it's iconic and a wonderful view of the city. It would be a pity to go all the way there only to stand at the base looking up! about 8 years ago
