    What are some things to see in Buenos Aires?

    Yes. The Milhouse Hostel is the place to stay if you don't need sleep. What a place! The staff are very friendly and there is daily tours, language lessions, nightclub tours... the list goes on. almost 10 years ago

    Is Buenos Aires a good place to visit to get a feel for Argentina? Are there lots of things to do and see locally?

    As a place to base yourself, definitely. There are so many things to do and see: food, history, music, walks (be careful), there are parts of the city where I felt like I was in a movie about Paris in the 1920s..... I don't think you can bet bored in BsAs. about 10 years ago

    What is the best way to cross the Andes?

    I crossed from Bariloche to Osorno in the middle of winter 05 I had to wait for a window when the road was open, but it was the most spectacular bus trip I've ever taken!

    Two weeks in Buenos Aires, what shall we do?

    Visit the Cemetery at Ricoleta Go to the markets in San Telmo Take Tango Lessons Eat Empanadas Grab the Lonely Planet Guidebook for some more ideas. My stay in a hostel sorted a lot of these things out, either with guided tours or other travellers simply walking to the local sites & activities. about 10 years ago

    what are some good beaches that aren't so crowded..?

    The north shelf of Mckenzie's bay next to Tamarama rarely has people on it, even in the peak of summer. South of Sydney in the National Park is Garie Beach: http://bit.ly/N3lWl There is also a YHA there: http://bit.ly/H4N49 about 10 years ago

    what is the best / cheapest way to get from sydney airport to the CBD? and rough prices for public transport tickets?

    If you are travelling to Bondi Junction/eastern suburbs, you can get a 400 bus from both the international & domestic terminals. This is a normal bus i.e. normal every day prices rather than rip off airport prices. Type in "400" at http://www.131500.com.au/ about 10 years ago

    When does the ski season start and finish? Do they have season passes at Gulmarg area : cost?

    Mark, I was there in 05 for approx 5 weeks, and there was no season pass as such, you just bought a single ticket on the gondola base. At that time however the gondola didn't go all the way to the top, and half the time, the ticket sellers had no change or tickets (!). Last year however (2008), I was riding at Broken River NZ and one of the staff ski patrollers had worked there the previous year and told me that some days he did in excess of 10 runs per day. At the end of the day, it's Kashmir, so you can probably haggle a deal or something. I found it best to discard traditional "concepts" when I was staying there. The infrastructure is pretty loose. I'm sure it has changed a bit since my visit. It was the snowboarding experience of my life for sure. A lot of the time, we would bootpack/snowshoe hike all around the area if the gondola was closed. about 10 years ago
