    Traveling on a US cruise ship in Europe. Do I tip in euros or US dollars?

    Given the Euro is still stronger than the USD, I'd tip in Euro. Staff on the ship I'd expect would be used to receiving both as well as having to convert where required at exchange sites for each port of call. over 8 years ago

    Vacation place in July.

    Agree with Original Nomad, it's a big question, but from experience Vietnam & Cambodia are stunning, not just the landscapes but the amazing and warm people, particularly in the rural areas, provide a rich experience for any photographer. over 8 years ago

    Does the volcanic eruption in Chile make it dangerous to travel to Sydney from Thailand?

    Hi Belinda, Unfortunately as you know, we do not provide cancellation cover as a result of a natural disaster. This is something that has 'never' been part of our coverage for Australian & New Zealand travellers, it's not a benefit that we're choosing to refuse payment against. We are talking to our insurers to see whether we can add this as part of new product release, but please note that we always ask our customers to take the time to read their policy wording to make sure the cover is right for them. There is a cooling off period should you wish to change your mind and our customer service team are always at hand to answer any questions you might have around your coverage. For those looking to better understand our coverage around natural disasters - please have a read over here - http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/73860/Worldwide/Natural-Disasters-Am-I-covered Kind Regards Chris Noble General Manager WorldNomads.com over 8 years ago

    Why and how did everyone start traveling?

    My father did his PHD in Wales when I was 4, so he basically carried me on his shoulders around Europe and I still have vivid recollections about the places I visited. It was pretty much from there that I always knew I wanted to see more of the world. The hardest part for me now is juggling a family, work and that continual burning desire to get out on the road. Whenever I travel for work, I always, always make time, no matter how short the stay might be to connect as locally as I can, get a sense of what it is to be part of the culture, not just stand on the outside looking in. I hope to continue to be blessed by being part of a world community, and continue my passion for travel and being a nomad. It's in the blood now mate ! over 8 years ago

    Mosquitoes in Singapore?

    I lived in Singapore for two years and did not really notice Mosquito's as being a major issue. I would however as Jarred has pointed out above to take every precaution against them, be it using a repellent such as DEET and dressing to cover up as much as possible. Here's a few excellent articles in relation to staying safe and healthy in Asia Preparing the perfect travel medi-kit - http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/65884/Worldwide/Preparing-the-perfect-travel-medi-kit Dengue Fever Rise: Travel Alert - http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/62568/Worldwide/Dengue-Fever-Rise-Travel-Alert Travel Immunizations - What you Really Need in Asia - http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/33418/Worldwide/Travel-Immunizations-What-you-Really-Need-in-Asia Cheers over 8 years ago

    4WD/car rental in Cairns?

    Jayphen, although I don't think they offer 4WD rentals, ask the lads over at http://www.travellers-autobarn.com.au ( we used them for the Van-Tastic / Ambassador programs) as they'll put you in contact with the right (reliable) bunch up there. over 8 years ago
