    Has anyone been to Iceland? We are looking into an October trip, and probably one that would not include the Iceland Airwaves Festival.

    It will probably be cold.

    It's no Iceland, but the Kid-tineraries are all set for first family road trip up North.

    Yeah I have been to Iceland. October probably isn't a great month to go-daylight will be down to a few hours. The temperature will be pretty stable around that time, there isn't much daylight so temperatures will be around freezing. Amazing country to visit with vast landscapes, but you won't be outside Reykjavik much. Everything is comparatively expensive.
    It will be an adventure, but you need to adjust to the idea that it will be almost night all the time. I lived in Finland for two years and I never adjusted to that.

    Now we might not do Spain. We may do Bestival instead. But if we do Spain, we'll do Madrid instead of Barcelona.

    Tripit is genius. I would invest it that company if I could. I have been using it for my Thailand scheduling.

    It's not the planning that it helps with, it just makes organization easier. Tripit does for me stuff I used to do by hand -- getting all the itinerary info in one place. Flights, car, hotel, driving directions, etc. Plus then it can feed the flight stuff to FlightTracker, which I also used to load manually.

    Was there last year. It's great and all but 3 weeks seems a long time, I would consider moving around some of the islands.

    I did a week there 5 years ago. I'd agree 3 weeks seems a long time unless you like routines of all-inclusive/beach vacations. If you like the beach and drinking most of the day then its a winner. Personally a week was enough, but I don't like beach/resort vacations.
    My favorite excursion was Harrison's Cave. They do a pretty good 3-4 hour tour.

    It kind of depends on what you like to do (obviously) If you really like just relaxing at beautiful beaches for days on end ( which I personally am well equipped to do ) then there are worse places to do it.

    We did some very cool things on Barbados & some of the other islands - little submarine trips, parasailing, ziplining through the jungle canopy, ATV tours, - there are all sorts of cool things to waste the days away. We found the local adventure operators to be largely amazing hosts & very professional.

    You could always just drink rum, listen to steel drum reggae and remind yourself over & over that you are in the Caribbean - how long you can do this for is really up to you.

    I am going to New York for the first time in early May! My family and I are going for the Five Boroughs bike ride. Does anyone have any recommendations for good food places? I have a big thing for Anthony Bourdain and he has shown a bunch of neat restaurants in New York. I would love to experience really high end cheeses, and sadly I am vegetarian so I can't go to any neat steakhouses.

    Jen,

    what the hell is wrong with your operations people at PHX? I mean were they dropped on their heads as children? There is no legitimate reason why an arriving flight should have to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes waiting for a gate to open. Not on a sunny Saturday morning. Not one single possible legitimate excuse. Just bufoonery and incompetence. Do those people not have any professional pride?

    Trying to be helpful,

    Tom

    Charlie? yes.

    Definitely do Oistin's Friday Night Fish Fry. Snorkel or scuba dive if you get the chance. Soup Bowl is cool. Mount gay rum tour.

    I just got back from trip hell. First my luggage got lost at ORD. Then they didn't deliver it within the specified time frame. Then on my return flight the checkin line at the airport was 90+ minutes long and I missed my flight. And it was the last flight of the day so I ended up having to extend my travel by a day. And then a flight attendant spilled coffee all over my lap.

    I swear. This shit isn't even funny anymore.

    Our group was going to do a drive from Regina, Saskatchewan, down through Montana, Idaho and Arizona. Stop in Las Vegas, and finally down to Indio.. but money's looking a little bit too tight. So, I think we're just going to fly to Las Vegas or Los Angeles, rent a car and drive to Indio from there. Not a huge loss for me as I'm quite well travelled and have been to Vegas and Los Angeles a few times now. But my buddy who is joining me for Coachella has never left Canada, so unfortunately she will be missing out on a lot of sightseeing.

    A really good cheese store is Murray's which is on Bleecker St between West Village and Greenwhich village. YELP LINK <-link

    Another recommendation would be Num Pang near Union Sq which is a Cambodian Sandwich shop. It isn't fine dining but really tasty for the price. Great for lunch. They have vegetarian options. YELP LINK <-link

    Depends. Were all the gates full? Or was there no one to meet the gate?

    Sometimes a gate is occupied when it shouldn't be because the FAA has a gate-sitting plane on a delay so they are required to sit because of ground traffic. Or it could be that the pilots discovered something in the pre-flight check that is preventing them from leaving. And the arriving plane can't pull into what seems to be an empty gate because a) it's reserved for another arriving flight and/or b) there isn't the right kind of equipment to receive that particular kind of aircraft.

    If the plane sat on the tarmac because there was no one available to receive the flight, that's probably scheduling's fault.
