Georgia is safe but use safety precautions, like you would anywhere. Don't try to go to Abkhasia or Ossetia, even the Georgians don't go there...visit my FB page Menu Voyage, it will give you an idea of the wonderful land of Sakartvelo.. Have fun! almost 7 years ago
What is the best take a taxi or private hire car from CDG Airport into Paris? any companies recommended?
Take the RER. you can depend on it, it 9€ and it only takes 20 minutes. You can also take the Air France bus, but it takes longer and only goes to certains spots. The RER is your best, safest, fastest bet. almost 7 years ago
Im going to be living in Paris for 3 months in April next year - what is the approx daily living costs? How much should a budget per day?
Try going to the cheaper neighborhood outdoor markets, and compare prices with stores. The veggies can be cheaper, but beware of things like honey, or local products, they are more expensive. Carry your own water, that will save you money too. You can count on a minimum of 15€ per day per person if you cook at home. France is expensive, and Paris is really expensive..as most larger cities are.. almost 7 years ago
We'll be in Istanbul Aug 27-Sep 3. Is this a good time? Also, any problems for two gay men traveling together?
I would recommend you play it "low-key", the Turks are not as open-minded as they claim to be. The food there is fantastic, enjoy! almost 7 years ago
I will be in Paris in July by train from London what's the best transportation from the train station?
The métro is the best bet. Keep in mind that even a suitcase with wheels will have to be carried down the many staircases, so only take what you can carry alone. If you do a search on "metro paris", you will find an interactive map to guide your journey. If you are going on the outskirts of Paris, try "map RER Paris". If you are going out of Paris, you need to look up the SNCF site for the rest of France. Bon voyage! almost 7 years ago
Does anyone have experience in crossing the border between Turkey and Georgia, especially at Türkgözü? How to get in? Where to stay?
Don't bring anything electrical new into Turkey! You will send hours in their customs office. If you are a woman, do not cross alone, as women are not even given the time of day in Turkey. In Georgia, declare anything upon entering. They are more efficient there, and courteous. They also speak English, whereas the Turks will and do not.. almost 7 years ago

Friend wants to visit an Indian reserve in November/December is that possible? Can he hire a local to show non touristy areas?
The Native-Americans are not "on display" in reservations, they happen to live on reservations. Be diplomatic about your intentions. I would go to the local tourist office first,if there is one, and state your wishes. almost 7 years ago
