West Coast Vacation Ideas

West Coast Vacation Ideas

Travel
My husband and I are looking to book a trip after we’re both fully vaccinated and would love to spend some time on the west coast as we live in Charlotte, NC and don’t get to travel out there much. Since flights are still relatively cheap, we’re hoping to go sometime in May or June. I love Southern California but my husband is hoping to go somewhere farther north this time around. We’re both in our early 30s and love spending time outdoors hiking, biking, kayaking, general adventuring and being in Nature. But we also dig just lounging, dining, drinking wine, exploring local cultures. We’re wanting to find somewhere that offers us a mix of adventure and relaxation. We’re open to visiting a couple of different places and are planning to spend about a week to possibly 10 days depending on h...
Important Passport Application Question

Important Passport Application Question

Travel
I just noticed that the mailing address is filled out on both my mom and my brother's DS11s but they're both missing the permanent adress. Will this get the applications denied? They were already sent in over a week ago, I'm just looking at the digital versions the were printed. I asked this in the USCIS Reddit but I'm not expecting any answers considering they typically ignore anything I post there. This was the only other place I could think of asking seeing how I've been on hold with the actual USCIS for an hour now. submitted by /u/GoatYear [link] [comments]
Mountain Getaway for older parents

Mountain Getaway for older parents

Travel
I wanted to surprise my parents with a mountain getaway. They used to love to hike but they’re older and have some health issues and can’t really do that much activity anymore. Does anyone have any good destinations in the middle/east side of the US where they could see some beautiful views without hiking more than a couple easy miles? Preferably something nature or history related, not too touristy like Gatlinburg. Thanks! submitted by /u/Dragonfly2919 [link] [comments]
Layover in London

Layover in London

Travel
The trip I'm planning for during the summer involves a long connection in London (24 hours). It is my understanding that because I will not be arriving from a UK Red List country I do not need to stay in a government-mandated quarantine hotel, but apparently I must remain in quarantine for the period of time I am in London. Does this mean I won't be able to leave my hotel room at all during the 24 hours I have in London? submitted by /u/lainjahno [link] [comments]
First trip to Europe, Slavic over Mediterranean?

First trip to Europe, Slavic over Mediterranean?

Travel
If everything goes right, we (me +friends ) are traveling to Europe in July-August (25 days aprox), the thing is that nobody has been before in Europe except one guy, who kinda settled the whole itinerary, leaving behind Italy and Croatia, but keeping places like St. Petersburg or Tallin. Are these good destinations for a first time Europe? Also we have 1 day in Paris, and that’s all from France. We want to party but also good tourism. This is the itinerary (cities we sleep that day): Barcelona Barcelona Barcelona Paris St. Petersburg St. Petersburg St. Petersburg St. Petersburg Tallin Tallin Berlin Berlin Berlin Prague Prague Prague Budapest Budapest Budapest Amsterdam Amsterdam Amsterdam Madrid What do you think for a first time? submitted by /u/betterman13 [link] ...
First Trip to Europe

First Trip to Europe

Hello everyone! First, thank you to all who reply. I have no idea what I am doing and I decided to consult the experts here to try and learn more. Myself and 3 friends (Budgeting around 3-4k USD per person) are working on planning our first trip to Europe July 6-24th 2022 (We are not pressed on the dates, just picked something to work from). We would like to visit 7 cities on this trip (London, Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Rome, and Athens. I would like to stop in Nuremberg too but don't plan on staying long, more of a pass through). Is this a fools errand? In doing some basic research before posing, I read an article where an individual recommended no more than 3-4 cities in that time frame. I think that travel is different for everyone, however, I want to avoid rookie mistakes. ...
