Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Turelj, Mongolia
Just 90 km outside of Ulaanbaatar, the Turelj valley offers travelers the first opportunity to see the real Mongolia.  The valley is breathtakingly beautiful, with large rocky mountains littered with boulders balanced in precarious stacks along ridgelines that look like they have been designed for a Hollywood fantasy.  The valley is not untouched, but it is genuine. The nomadic culture o…

Very cheap "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Bangkok, Thailand
I think this is the name of the place--either way, you've got to find it! Here, a dessert is a toasted bread slathered in the most amazing butter you've ever had and drizzled with a topping of condensed milk, sugar, yucca root, pumpkin, etc. I bought some off the streets, but this place is absolutely amazing. It must be a local joint as nobody inside was non-thai and it is kind of off the beaten p…

Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in San Diego, California, USA
First my rant. For many years this event was called "Christmas on the Prado", but now to mollify all the PC people, this event is called "December Nights". But to me it will always be "Christmas on the Prado"!!!  There, rant over. The following event description is shamelessly lifted from the event web site: Balboa Park December Nights presented by Barona, San Diego's favorite kick-off to t…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in San Jose, California, USA
The story of the mansion was an incredible one.  Sara Winchester, upon the death of her husband, was told by a medium to move west and build a home for the spirits of the deceased, that had died from the Winchester Weapons.  The Spirit of her deceased husband had informed her that there was a curse on the family, wrought by the Winchester Fortune, and that the only way to stave off her o…

Average priced "General Tips & Advice" in London, England, UK
I'm writing this review to cover a very few items not covered in one I just read. My experience with this wonderful train ride was during our Spring 2005 trip.  It was a part of the Globus Tour we were on so I don't really know what the price was.  I do know that they were having trouble with some of their equipment the day we were traveling so it was necessary to go in on an individual basis an…

Cheap "General Tips & Advice" in Serengeti, Tanzania
One thing I would strongly advise anyone visiting Serengeti is to have a fully charged mobile phone with a pre-paid sim card with enough call credit (US$10-20) with you before you embark on the journey. And DO NOT allow your driver to go off the marked road. We were on our amazing Safari trip and for some reason following the Cheetah, we went offroad and in the middle of nowhere the Landrover bat…

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…
