    Where's a fun and memorable place to have lunch/dinner on Christmas Day in New York?

    New York City is magical any time of year but Christmas especially so. Depends on your style of place and neighborhood. One of my fave spots is Casa Mono (on Irving Street) or Blue Water Grill, both off Union Square. Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill always delivers if you fancy a southwestern/mexican touch-beautiful spot near the shopping on the bottom end of 5th Ave. For a classic NYC experience, Rockefeller Plaza can't be beat and I recently enjoyed Jean Gorges on Columbus Circle in a Trump building-lost of glass and light (and lots of $$!) For something you will definitely not find in Sydney is the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station...buzzing with locals and commuters alike, old school waiters and gorgeous oysters. Grand Central has a few good higher end restaurants, but the Oyster Bar IS New York. about 9 years ago

    How do you tell someone you want to go traveling for an extended period?

    Hmmm...very tricky question and without knowing you or the full dynamics of all involved, but if you have been together for ages, then there must be a solid basis of trust and understanding of who you each are as people and as a couple. He should understand that this is part of not just your professional aspirations but personal too, and one can only support that in the ones we love,no? My boyfriend went away for 4 months; while it seemed interminable, I knew he'd be back before we knew it, he was going to have amazing adventures and life experiences and that he would come back an enriched and happier person for having done it. Six weeks is no time at all really. Skype, Facebook, emails etc will keep you connected and able to share your adventures with him as you go, perhaps even lay the groundwork for when you two go to Europe together one day. Given that he can't go for six weeks, perhaps he can take a week or two to join you for part of the trip and not feel so left out. about 9 years ago

    what is the best hostel in lima, peru?

    The Miraflores neighborhood is lovely and has lots of options. I noted the Hostal Torreblanca and more in the heart of the action was Hotel Mariel (http://www.mariel-hotel.com/aboutus.php), which may be on the pricier side. Calle San Martin also had a few blocks of secure and nice looking hostals. Here's a link: http://www.travellerspoint.com/budget-accommodation-es-ci-689.html, which also lists the Gallery House mentioned above. Barranco is a lovely lovely bohemian neighborhood on the cliff top overlooking the Pacific. Great bars and restaurants. about 9 years ago

    Off the map in Madrid

    I used to spend childhood summers there and always remember the Estadio Bernabeo where Real Madrid play. If yo are there when is a match is on, definitely go to that, otherwise take a saunter to it and if they allow people in for a look around in the off-season, that would be a treat. If it is hot, and you fancy a swim and a day out with the locals, look at the municipal pool clubs that team with locals. Pack towels, empanadas, chorizo, fresh bread, tortilla espanola; enjoy your picnic lunch with a sangria that most places serve in their refreshments stands/comedores and you're golden! here's a list to start with, I went to Casa de Campo as a child: http://www.madaboutmadrid.com/guide/2004/07/open_air_swimmi.html El Escorial is also well worth the trip just outside of Madrid. over 8 years ago

    How best to take buses from Buenos Aires to Cordoba?

    I went to Cordoba by bus but was coming from Uruguay so my route went through Santa Fe, but there would most certainly be direct buses between BA and Cordoba. http://www.omnilineas.com/argentina/bus/retiro/cordoba/ has some details. It Takes 10-11 hours, so I highly recommend getting a bus/seat that is comfy and may even recline; it's worth the price in my view. I found the best way to get the full picture of who goes where and when was to go to the bus terminal a day or two before. Te terminal in BA is Retiro-huge bus terminal by the train station. I was surprised to learn of how many routes and companies offered services to places that I could not find info for online. Have fun! about 9 years ago

    I'm looking for vegetarian options in Argentina - Buenos Aires seems to have many, but what about outside major cities?

    I too am heading to Argentina with my veggie boyfriend so have researched this recently. Check out happycow.net. It's a great directory for vegetarian and vegetarian friendly restaurants all over the world. I also got this tip for a place in Cachi is Ashpamanta. It’s real artisan cooking, specialising in pastas: http://ashpamantarestaurante.com/ Also, many places in Argentina have pasta on the menu and further toward the mountains and country, trout will be on a lot of menus. about 10 years ago

    Any suggestions? Bars? Restaurants? Sites? ANYTHING! (we're all 25-31 year old if that helps) Thanks ya'll

    I loved watching sunset at Buza-everyone claps when it sets and if it's warm you can camp out with your beach towel on the rocks below and have a steady flow of drinks/nibbles. Walk the rampart walls, beautiful views all round, including the vestiges of bullet holes and bomb shrapnell on some of the buildings. There are also stops on hte walls where you can have a civilized drink. I also went to Trogir up the coast which is gorgeous: cobbled streets, large stone enclosed town, farmers market and LOTS of bars/restaurants on the waterfront. I agree with above to try to go to Montenegro.Herceg Novi is an exquisite walled city and the area in the Kotor Bay is stunning-mountains that drop right into the water with midieval town nestled in the nooks along the water. about 10 years ago
