    Can or should a tourist female even if within husband company wear a skirt, dress ou shorts while getting to know the city?

    Can and should are two very different words when it comes to this question. Simply put, you CAN wear whatever you want when you are in Istanbul and nobody will say anything. We were in Turkey for 3 weeks earlier this year and spent 6 days in Turkey. You will see tourists, especially female tourists, wearing super short shorts or skirts or shirts that could pass for rags as well. What you SHOULD do is be respective of the local Muslim culture. Not just in Istanbul but any Muslim country. Wearing shorts or skirts that cover your knees or at least get close to the top of your knees is recommended. Carry a scarf to use when visiting places too, specifically mosques. When visiting mosques, they will often provide wraps for people who are underdressed,but who knows how often those are cleaned, do you really want them touching you. So the key is to be smart and respect the local culture and you're fine about 8 years ago

    We want to stay in a gay friendly hotel, in the centre of town? Any recommendation? I heard Continental Zara was good??

    This is a question I normally could not answer but I was just checking AirBNB for places for my wife and I as we are visiting Budapest in a few days. In my search, a place came up for a Gay friendly apartment in Budapest. You might want to check it out if you're open to something different than a hotel. If you're not on airBNB yet, you can register here http://bit.ly/airBNBtravel and we'll both get a referral bonus about 8 years ago

    What type of electrical adaptor do I need to bring to Tanzania, coming from Spain?

    They use the same outlet as the UK but the European plug will work fine as well. You just need a thin solid object to push into the third grounding hole to pus the European plug in. Probably won't need an adapter but if is the UK style. about 8 years ago

    We have 1 1/2 hours to make an international connection in the Toronto airport. Will that be enough time?

    You should be fine....if it is the same airline you are traveling with, they should take care of you, but in most cases you shouldn't have a problem. over 8 years ago

    Is there a ferry from Istanbul to Varna on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria?

    Yes buses are better in Turkey and easy to book. Their train line is being improved at the moment. I know we looked into one from Istanbul to Bourgas but didn't end up taking it an went to Plovdiv first over 8 years ago

    Istanbul to Thessaloniki. Any links to train or bus info? Worth taking a bus and stopping in Alexandrapouli or Xanthi?

    We didn't go that direction from Istanbul but spent 3 weeks exploring Turkey and bus travel is great over there. Easy to get tickets as well. For international trips you might need to book at the train station near Eminonu (can't remember spelling). We went from there to Bulgaria border by bus and then a train from the Bulgaria border. Buses within Turkey to other Turkish cities are the best I've been on and after wifi, snacks and drinks! over 8 years ago

    Where is the best place to look for a share house in Vancouver

    The universities might also have a room share website if you can find it. Search UBC housing and see what you get. Housing is easy to find in Vancouver, I've rented there for 8 years and often find a place easily, even after the students have started school. Staying in Burnaby, near Metrotown can actually be much cheaper than the city and the SkyTrain can get you there in 30 minutes over 8 years ago
