    Things to see on a road trip of East Coast of the United States?

    Just to report, the summer trip was fantastic. Went slightly north to our friends in New Haven, CT Then headed back to New York Then Philadelphia ,Washington ,Virginia Beach, VI ,Wilmington, NC ,Charleston, SC ,Savannah, GA ,Gainsville, FL ,Tampa, FL (for a 5 day cruise) ,Fort Lauderdale, FL ,Miami, FL This was all over a period of 1 month, so we got to see some places very well and some were a bit rushed. Most of the time it was stinking hot and the air conditioning was always freezing. Favourite towns/cities were Philly, Savannah and Miami and Washington gets a thumbs up for the awesome and free musuems. Most surprising was how green the whole coast was. I never imagined the US to have so many broad leafed trees, I though it was much more urban sprawl. almost 9 years ago

    Just to note from me. This is quite true for Australians as well. As the countries you are travelling through still have heavy border control make sure you take every precaution. http://www.smartraveller.gov.au should tell you about any country you are planning to go to. Border controls can be very scary and there are some strong prejudices against particular countries, these are usually between borders there though. I remember passing from Croatia (non-EU) to Slovenia (EU) and several policeman came into my cabin on a train and they started harassing a poor Serbian guy who lived in Italy and they really made very sure that he was not an illegal immigrant sneaking in. I had a Finnish friend who also experienced a bit of prejudice against her South American friends who were travelling with her through that area. Anyway I'm sure it will be fine. Sounds like a great trip and I hope you have fun. :) over 10 years ago

    What's the best way to carry money in Myanmar?

    If you are not a fan of money belts then try putting your money in a soft sun glasses case/bag tied onto the top of your pants and then dropping it down your pants. This trick saved me a lot of money when being basically robbed in South America, they didn't get our cards or our cash. almost 9 years ago
