Free! "General Tips & Advice" in Dublin, Ireland
Hi, I personally loved the road up the Wicklow Mountains.. only 30 minutes out of Dublin but a complete different world. A windy road takes you over to the mountains, you do pass the famous Johnnie Fox's Pub (highest pub in Ireland).. If I remember correct (i was there in 2003), Once you pass the pub, you see the amazing views. What I personally liked about Wicklow is that despite be…

Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Bangkok, Thailand
One of the greatest experiences of my life was going to The Grand Palace in Bangkok.  Ironically, I almost missed this amazing afternoon; there are two parts to the palace, a sort of outer section, and then the inner section you pay to get into.  From outside, you really can't tell what magic awaits you, and we almost didn't go.  What a HUGE mistake!!  Make sure to go in! This…

Average priced "Hotels & Accommodations" in Pai, Thailand
The Soppong River Inn is a nice, fairly remote set of bungalows perched over the river in Soppong Thailand.  Set in a lush garden setting, there are a variety of different bungalows and even a complete house to rent, each uniquely decorated and very comfortable.  We really liked ours (the River Rim Bungalow) which had a balcony hanging over the river and a nice, clean, roofless bathroom …

Free! "General Tips & Advice" in London, England, UK
I totally stole this from "puddles_mcgee" on the Lonely Planet website, AND it has nothing to do with London specifically, but I wanted to share it, because it made me feel less stressed out about traveling. It was called, "Travel Pleasures to Stop Feeling Guilty About": Missing the Star Attraction You went to Paris and skipped the Louvre. Never saw the Eiffel tower. Who cares? Visi…

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Saint George, Utah, USA
My parents took some friends who claimed to be sushi connoisseur but if that’s the case then apparently I’ve never had really good sushi and I never want it, I'll stick with the sushi I've been eating. The place was packed with a line out the door, but considering it was Saturday night and therefore date night in St. George that didn't say much. The sushi was clearly frozen and not fresh (not …

Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in New York, New York, USA
An execellent Greek restaurant on the upper west side. It's in the basement of a building, and its entrance is easy to miss. The food is execellent. All the dishes were tasty (but not all the photos came out, so only a few photos). The fava soup was one of the best soups I have had. The lamb main dish was just right. The dessert I had was something I have never had (or heard of), a "rose sampler",…

Free! "Sights & Attractions" in World
MARK'S NIFTY NINE LISTS Everybody on TravBuddy is a travel expert; just ask any of us :-) In the same way that my travel blog, "Mark's Miscellaneous Madcap Maneuvers", is a collection of random photos from my adventures, this review will be a compilation of my best-loved havens.  I have purposely omitted the United States from these postings because it's my native land. As Dorothy…

Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Mykonos, Greece
MYKONOS According to mythology, this Greek island owes its existence to Hercules. In one of his 12 tasks, Hercules killed giants and then threw them into the sea. The giants petrified and turned into huge rocks, forming Mykonos. This dry, arid Greek island is situated in the middle of the Aegean and covers an area of only 85 square kilometers. However, its landscape has accurately been des…

Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Sydney, Australia
If you are coming to Aus, the one thing you have to make sure you do is the Harbour Bridge Climb.  I'm not being biased just because I'm from Sydney.  I work right in the city and see it every day, but after doing the bridge climb it puts another whole perspective on the way you look at things...It's amazing!  And so worth it for $170!  The Opera house looks fab from its steps …

Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Phoenix, Arizona, USA
With accolades such as Best Mexican Restaurant 2005, Best of the Valley 2005, Best of the Southwest, Fodor's, and Zagat's top Restaurant Guide, the Barrio Cafe is a hidden jewel in one the many barrios of Phoenix. Open since 2002, when I first visited the place, I was struck by the uniqueness and flavors of the foods.  Southern Mexican cuisine, strongly influenced by mole…
