    What's the best way to learn Italian without spending $500 on a weekend "immersion" course? Program or website recommendations for a week ?

    Have you tried Duolingo? It's an app for iPhone or iPad and is the best by far. Or, if it's just casual travelers phrases, try the World Nomads Italian language guide. about 4 years ago

    Does anybody know any hidden gems or must see's in Japan?

    I should also add, if your can't get to Kyoto, 90 minutes out of Tokyo there is the temple complex of Kamakura which is the next best thing. Makes a great day trip. about 4 years ago

    Does anybody know any hidden gems or must see's in Japan?

    Definitely buy the Japan Rail Pass - you'll save the price of it in one trip. Couple of suggestions: - Miyajima, just south of Hiroshima makes a good (long) day trip. Take the cable car to the top Of the mountain and walk back down last the temples - soak in the Spirited Away Onsen in the city of Matsuyama on Shikoku. - climb the 1300 steps to the top of Kompira temple also on Shikoku - Shinkansen down to Kagoshima on the ridiculously fast train and the hire a car and drive around Sakurajima. Soak in the outdoor volcanic onsen temple overlooking the ocean. - past Kyoto, head to the inland sea and the Ninja temple of Kanazawa. And that's just getting started! Have a great trip! about 4 years ago

    Can I bicycle through Iran ?

    Iran is a fantastic destination with a wonderfully hospitable people. I would recommend a guide, as you'll get more from the trip. We used houman.najafi@gmail.com but even if you don't he'll be able to answer your questions far better than I - highly recommended about 4 years ago

    itinerary help - SE Asia

    Well. If I had only 4 weeks: - explore HCMC for a couple of days - explore a Mekong delta town like Cantho - I'd explore more of Vietnam myself, but if you aren't that fussed, fly to Hanoi and consider a trip up to Sapa. - fly to Luang Prabang in Laos - you've got to try to see Angkor Wat in Cambodia but PP is very missable. - I'd skip the Thai islands of the south as they were nice enough 30 years ago but are now well over-rated. If you want islands, try Ko Chang on the Burmese border. over 4 years ago

    What are some of your favorite off-the-beaten-path places to visit/things to do in Bali?

    While nowhere is off the beaten track indeed, head east to Amed (very unspoilt) then across the top to Munduk in the mountains. (Try to find the Sanak Reyreat if you can). The south around Seninyak and Ubud is long over trodden. Avoid. over 4 years ago

    Can I camp in Central America?

    Definitely not recommended, certainly not in Guatemala. At best you might just get robbed at knifepoint ... While different set of behaviors so be careful. over 4 years ago
