Be sure to hydrate, take emergen-c or something similar, saline for the nasal passages, bring a bandana or dust mask, and get some rest at night to lower your chances. Would suck to have an amazing vacation planned like that only to spend it wishing you were dead.
    Haha I feel like Coachella is one of the least dusty festivals I have ever been to.

    I have 48 hrs in Chicago before I head to Austin for SXSW. What is essential? GO!

    virtually nothing in chicago is essential*. It is a good city to get drunk in though.


    * - ok the architecture is pretty cool, yes, I will agree to that.

    Go on one of those Architectural River tours. We did it late afternoon, so you could see the buildings in daylight, but by the time you get back to the dock, the sun is setting and the city lights are coming up. Beautiful. We loved it.

    Have a drink in the Signature Lounge of the Hancock Tower (don't pay for the elevator to the observation deck - a drink in the lounge costs the same, and you might as well have the alcohol). Same extraordinary views. Have your wife go into the women's restroom; there is a bank of windows(!) with more amazing views. The guys don't have windows, hehe.

    Isn't it de rigueur while in Chicago to go find one of those places that serves a giant cake with cheese, sauce and meat on it? (aka deep dish pizza)

    Just turned in my application. I'll be studying abroad in Utrecht, The Netherlands beginning next August. Already planning on attending Primavera and hopefully Bestival or ATP. Would love to do Roskilde but I'm not sure if it'll work out or not. LPM me if you're looking for a buddy to see some shows/fests with because I should have lots of free time! Any other venues, music festivals, or music scenes in certain cities that I shouldn't miss? (Already planning on London for a show/festival and Berlin for the infamous electronic scene.)

    My favorite city in Spain....Bilbao. The Guggenheim.

    Train trip to Guernica. Train travel cheap, easy, very fun.

    Spent Thanksgiving there this past year.

    I bought espadrilles and berets for all my friends.

    Watch for the pickpockets while you eat outside on La Ramblas is more like it. I saw some dude get jacked right before his own eyes. Some idiot had the bright idea of putting his wallet ON THE TABLE at the place he was eating at. So one of those magician/comedian type dudes goes up to the table. And he puts this picture IN FRONT of the wallet. He does his whole little bit, and people laugh and everything. So hetgot a couple of euros for it. After he left, the wallet was gone. Dude didnt realize til a few mins after it happened, and then tried to run after him but to no avail.

    Washington D.C. this weekend! it's my first time there and I'm really excited

    it dawned on me that it's super bowl sunday this weekend and that Baltimore is playing. I'm hoping that the museums are going to be empty so that I can squeeze as many in as possible.

    Finally got my visa mailed to me. I leave Sunday night for Brazil so will catch the game at the airport bar.

    I've always stayed at hotels but trying my first ever hostel in Ipanema. Voted world's sexiest beach so I have to see for myself. Then find a costume for the Carnival parties.

    I saw it snow for the first time ever yesterday. Up until then, I just thought people woke up one morning and snow was already on the ground. all together now... WHO CARES BETH?!

    DC is pretty great. yesterday I only went inside the archives and the rest of the day was just walking around the mall and the basin being an architecture slut. today I'm going to check out the American History Museum, the Natural History Museum and 1 or 2 others. then Tomorrow I'm back to Philly again for a quick overnight visit before flying back home.

    Anyone done Mauritius island? Looks pretty interesting and there are waves (the local "white shorts" surf clan are notorious cocks though). Sister just got a job with Emirates Airlines, so I get 90% off tickets twice a year.

    I found Mauritius to be underwhelming. The beaches and resorts are beautiful but there isn't a great deal to do and the food was pretty terrible due to the lack of primary production on the island ( turkey bacon !?! ) . I have been told that we stayed on the wrong part of the island ( North ) I can see the appeal for honeymooners but if you like to get out and about then it isn't that special. Not sure about the surf though.

    My opinion may be bias due to the fact that it just seemed like a fucking long way to fly for stuff I can find a lot closer to home.

    cheers for the feedback. And I'm agreeing with this "fucking long way to fly for stuff I can find a lot closer to home" with Hawaii or Cabo ($200 or less RT with Spirit Airlines FYI) in range. Going to sort something else out.

    I will be in Paris for several days in July, including Bastille Day. What are some of the things to do/avoid in Paris on that day? I am definitely not going to wait in line for the free admission to the Louvre, but I welcome other suggestions.

    You have 20 days to spend in France and a neighboring country or two in September/October. Moderate budget and likely to have a car to drive around. Aside from eating and drinking everything in sight, what would you do?
