re: Day trips from Lyon - TigerTaco
Is 2.5 hours away too far? Eurail app shows a 2.5 hour train ride to Cassis. From there, you can take a boat ride to calanques. Awesome area in the summer. [img]http://ttfn.com.au/cms/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/calanques-de-cassis.jpg[/img]...

Look for the entrance ...

re: Where to Stay at Olympic NP - TigerTaco
I went to Olympic this past summer. Assuming you are driving in from Seattle, I recommend hitting up Hurricane Ridge on the way in to the park then staying in Forks. We did that and made it to La Push/Second Beach, just outside Forks, for the sunset. Forks is more centrally located to the beaches a...

re: Milford's on Third - TigerTaco
I went last week and got a Reuben. It wasn't bad, but not the best I've had in BR. The Reuben, chips and tea was $15 and change. Unfortunately, I was hoping for more. I don't see going there too often. ...

re: cucuzza - what do you do with this? - TigerTaco
All I've tried is dicing it in about 1/4" size and sautéing in olive oil, butter, Italian sausage and garlic. I added dry Italian seasonings once soft. Serve it over pasta with Parmesan added. It's pretty good. ...

Two years ago, my wife and I used AT&T passport in France and Spain for two weeks. We let everyone know to text us and we disabled incoming calling and only downloaded emails using wifi back in the hotel at night. With the unlimited text and using gps sparingly, we didn't go over the data limit. The...
