Tit for tat....some years ago, friends of ours were on a South America cruise which sailed into Rio. There were TV News helicopters buzzing around and they only found out later why that was. The...

I think the disappearing beach might be typical. It comes back. I have seen Dickensen beach so narrow the water was up to the wall at Sandals. The sand gets sucked out, but not very far. It gets...

Beachlimerz is on Ft. James beach - right beside Ft. James. It's probably the closest beach to the cruise port.

Make your trip before September. I believe the exhibition moves to the new V & A in Dundee in September. Or else - jings! - go and see it in Dundee.....

If you have an older car, it will start. New ones have so much going on, even while parked, that the battery is being run down all the time. I have seen cases where two weeks will flatten the...

Another good reason to like Washington State, thank you for that. We'll enjoy on our next visit.

You make a bloody Mary with tomato juice. A bloody Caesar is the same thing but with clamato juice instead (i.e. tomato juice with added clam juice). Usually abbreviated to a 'Caesar'. With...

It may depend on the fare you paid. Don't know about Air Canada but I have been on airlines where you cannot select a seat. Even at check-in. You had to go to the gate and got a seat 45 mins...

Cruise ships tie up right in St.John's. Check Google maps and you'll see Heritage Quay and Redcliffe Quay side by side. Satellite view shows a cruise ship in port.

Good point. I think that's true of all airlines, short haul and long haul can be very different once you're in the air.

Main attractions in town? None. Get out of town. I did the sting rays when I was on island for a couple of weeks. Entrance fee was $50. You also have to get there and it's on the opposite side...

I know Antigua really well. It's possible but don't try. You'll get lost. The roads are narrow and have no sidewalks so it's not that safe. The locals are friendly, that's not the issue.

The badmouthing of Air Canada comes from Canadians. It's almost a national religion to profess hatred of Air Canada. Full disclosure: I'm an AC frequent flier. I have also flown on many foreign...

You'll be fine. In the last ten years, we have had three cruises that we booked and paid for and then had to cancel with less than a week to go. Family emergencies. I can't believe the bad luck...

Wow! I think that is fantastic! Well done. I retired after a career in accounting and IT, have never done a music degree but have wondered if I could/should. I really admire your determination...

Actually, too popular. We just did Jewel from Rome to San Juan. M & M was huge. The two things you couldn't do were meet and mingle. Then they had a raffle and that took far too long while making...
