    Grand Mercure - Docklands

    I stayed in the towers when my aunt was renting there. It is a pretty nice location and a very good building. The docklands tram basically comes just in front of the towers. Walking to the CBD takes about 15-30 minutes depending on where you want to go. The tram is faster if you want to go to Flinders St. Station or something further into the CBD quickly. Even though it has probably been said on Tripadvisor the Mecca Bah in the docklands is great (right on the waterside of the Mecure) I think (now) there should be plenty happening in the Docklands shopping centre. (it was being built when I was there) Cheers, Niko over 9 years ago

    Cost of getting to Versailles from Paris?

    You can catch the metro/train from various places throughout the city. If you just have the normal Zone 1 metro pass then you will need to buy a single or return Zone 4 metro pass to get to Versailles and back. This should cost something like €5.30 When we did it we went to Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel and bought the tickets there. There are other more cost effective options if you want to visit other places. http://www.ratp.info/orienter/cv/carteparis.php - interactive Paris metro map http://www.ratp.info/touristes/index.php?langue=en&rub=decouvrir - all the different metro ticket types you can buy about 9 years ago

    What are things I can not miss while in Tassie this summer?

    Well starting off from the North (Devonport - where the ferry will probably land your van) and heading south (via the east coast) you should see: - The Gorge (Launceston -pronounced Lon-ses-ton) - Bay of Fires (Binalong Bay) - Freycinet National Park (Bicheno) - Tasman Peninsular (Port Arthur) - Mount Wellington (Hobart) - Bruny Island Then heading back North via the West Coast - Lake St Clair (do not miss http://www.thewalltasmania.com/ ) - Strahan - Cradle Mountain - Stanley - Then back to Devonport if that is where your van departs -- This is just some guide for the best route to take. You have 6 weeks so take your time. Talk to locals in each place you decide to stay and find out the little things big overviews like this miss. I know a few but I wouldn't want to spoil the challenge :) about 10 years ago

    I've heard the latin quarter in Paris is relatively inexpensive... Where are the best places to go out here on a budget?

    George's Cafe on Rue de la Huchette is a pretty awesome place to go out. http://www.pariszoomtv.com/place.asp?P=Georges+Café Paris however isn't a place to go if you are on a tight budget. Going out in Paris is probably one of the most expensive places in Europe to drink. over 10 years ago

    What would be another alternative for accommodation, that may be cheap and more safe than backpackers in Sao Paolo & Rio de Janeiro?

    Well you can rent apartments but I wouldn't consider this much of a safer option. Then there is always hotels but they are usually much more expensive and where the rich tourists go is where the darker side of Rio will go too. Backpackers are actually quite safe, if you see the place I recommended on the question below you will be in an enclosed and guarded area that you feel very secure in. http://travellr.com/questions/brazil/27/where-is-the-best-place-to-stay-in-rio-de-janeiro almost 9 years ago

    Headed to Nürburgring, Germany for a music festival in July perhaps - any hints on what else to do around that time?

    Well it is a popular time to be travelling around Europe. You are in a good region to find plenty of tourist attractions. One of the biggest attractions in the area is the Neuschwanstein Castle. It is pretty spectacular. If you want to do more low key stuff, you will be in some of the best brewing country in the world so touring a brewery would be a thing to do http://www.europeanbeerguide.net/nurnpubs.htm --- If you can and want to travel a bit more. One thing that is very close is Slovenia and a little town called Bled. The gorge there is fantastic in the summer and the lake is beautiful aswell almost 10 years ago

    Luggage lockers in Milan Malpensa Airport?

    http://www.sea-aeroportimilano.it/en/malpensa/index.phtml?mod=servizi_utili&to=servizi_sea There is a left luggage service in Terminal 1 but I don't think there is anything in Terminal 2. There is a shuttle service that connects the two terminals but they are not particularly close. almost 10 years ago
