    Is it safe to travel to Egypt in mid to late February 2015?

    I was there in 2007 and toured around on my own as American without any problems. Did get a lot of stares since I am very big and look like a Marine. Would not travel there now unless I was escorted by a travel agency. about 4 years ago

    Travel through Europe

    I love Friendly Planet. I used them for a tour in India & Nepal and another in China. Good luck finding anything cheaper (you can't even do it cheaper if you arranged it yourself). They do take you to stores that you don't want to go to during the trip because they get commission off everything you buy. This is how they keep their prices so low on their packages. So if your on a budget and have free time to burn, I would go with FriendlyPlanet.com about 4 years ago

    Can anyone who has been to Poland and uses a wheelchair tell me about access there?

    Poland and the people are real nice. Unfortunately there is not a lot of accommodations for people in wheelchairs. Now I'm sure hotels and tourist attractions you will not have a problem, but public works you will run into some road barriers. Overall, it is comparable to any other well to do country in Europe, and people are always willing to help. about 4 years ago

    If traveling to Petra(Jordan)from Eilat Israel is safe, and if so how ?and approx how much please or is it better from Jerusalem via Amman ?

    When I went in 2009, I crossed in Elat and got a taxi to take me through the buffer zone as you cannot walk it (for Israels safety.) When across, the taxi driver had a friend that he called who took me to Petra. The drive was almost 2 hours long and the ride was around ~100 USD. Getting a better price on the way back was easy. Just asked people in my hotel and restaurants if they knew anybody. My friend who is Israeli had no problems with anyone when he was there either. about 4 years ago

    How safe is Jordan?

    I think it is safe for Americans and Israelis. But I personally did not go into any big cities. Crossed over from Elat and got a taxi to Petra. about 4 years ago

    Istanbul - is it safe to go for New Year's eve?

    I lived there working as an expat for an American Oil company in 2010 . Did not have any problems. Would stay away from Eastern Turkey right now, but that is personally just me. As for bombs going off, well you have a better chance of getting shot in America than you do getting blown up by a bomb in Istanbul. about 4 years ago

    Istanbul Safe for a Single Young American Woman?

    I think it is very safe for women. If you are there, you will notice many Russian women there who come down looking for a nice muslim man who does not drink or beat them. about 4 years ago
