re: AT&T International Day Pass - hungryone
Verizon has a similar option...I just used it a few days ago. I simply turned on my phone, enabled cellular roaming data, and it connected. Verizon also very helpfully sent me a text an hour before the 24-hour pass expired....

re: Luggage on a long road trip-storage in vehicle issue - hungryone
Car topper (turtle) is the way to go. Also, edit the hell out of your packed items. Plan to spend an hour at the laundromat midway thru the trip, and don't drag half the house with you....

re: Banana Blossom moving closer to the Old Gretna area - hungryone
That location change makes me happy. It was a PITA to go there before, and I would usually forget about it being an option. OGretna is a bit more on my regular radar....

re: Ideas/Suggestions for restaurants/bars/lesser known things to do in D.C. - hungryone
Union Station has bag/luggage storage for a fee. Union Market is an indoor food hall w/various vendors, near Gallaudet U, on 5th St NE near Brentwood Parkway. Expands to include some outdoor vendors on weekends. [link=(http://unionmarketdc.com/market/)]LINK[/link] Folks often overlook the Bo...

re: Help Deciding Where to Go in Europe - hungryone
I'd never try to cram so much terrain into a relatively short trip. Why not do London, Edinburgh, Paris & northern France (Normandy--D-Day beaches, Mont St Michel, etc). Going all the way to Barca or Madrid for just two days is a waste of transit time. Take your time, enjoy a few places and start...

re: Things to do in San Diego - hungryone
Why are they restricted to walking distance from the hotel? A cab or Uber will take them anywhere they want to go....and San Diego has easily the best zoo in the nation. It is a beautifully designed place, large enough to spend an entire day wandering around; it has a chairlift, bus around the gro...

re: 13 yo girl in Rome - hungryone
Hmm, a 13 y o girl....when I was that age, I would have thought the basilica of Saint Clement really cool: it's a Norman church circa 1100 built atop a 4th century church, built atop a first century villa, and way way down at the bottom is a pagan temple (mithraeum) and a subterranean stream. My t...

re: Must do's in D.C., Including restaurants - hungryone
Of course, museums around the Mall....but if you're into aircraft, the National Air & Space Museum has a branch at Dulles Airport. You can see the space shuttle Discovery, the Concorde, spy planes, etc (a bunch of cool stuff too big to fit inside the Air & Space museum on the Mall). Well worth the...

re: My annual plea to parents of kids starting to think about college - hungryone
Points about curriculum structure and major changes are valid....one way to hedge against these & have more flexibility/freedom in college is to earn college credit before leaving high school. Many HS now have dual-enrollment courses; you can earn college credit in biology, English, or applied clas...

re: San Fran, Chicago, Canada, or something better? - hungryone
SF gets my vote: the Museum of Asian Art is wonderful, the SFMuseum of Modern Art always has fascinating changing exhibits & a totally cool museum store, the DeYoung museum in Golden Gate Park has a great American collection...plus fantastic food & a great, scenic setting beside the bay. You can m...

re: Electronics ban expanding... - hungryone
I haven't taken a real paper book (or guidebook) on a plane in years and years....and I used to travel w/a separate bag just for books. Reading in e-form is ideal for travel (whether business or pleasure). This ban will suck for those of us who never check a bag. Guess I'll have to get used to re...

re: Italy in Wintertime/Christmas - hungryone
Forgot to add in my original post: I'd go to Bavaria for Christmas over Italy (and I really love Italy). Sure, southern Italy has the amazing nativity scene figure tradition, and yes, Rome has the Pope...but a southern German Christmas is pretty much every storybook tradition come to life. The ope...

re: Italy in Wintertime/Christmas - hungryone
Italy in the vicinity of Rome isn't any colder than the Deep South in winter. I've never been there for Christmas/New Year's, but Rome will be full of religious tourists at Christmas. Not as big as Easter, but still plenty of them milling around....

re: What's your favorite beach meal? - hungryone
I like dishes w/lots of water/crunch/salady things. Like a big Greek salad w/grilled shrimp, or a chopped salad w/blue cheese, or one of those southwestern-ish chilled corn/bean/avocado things. A Thai style papaya salad, or vietnamese goi ga would also hit the spot....
