Taipei as seen from the Taipei 101 Building
Q. I’m flying home (LAX) From Australia on June 12, and I booked a flight that has a layover in Taipei. I arrive at 6am and my flight home leaves at 4:20pm, so if I’m lucky I’ll have 8 hours to get into the city and back to the airport. Any advice? How long does it take to get into the city from the airport? What’s the best way to go, train, bus? Once there, what should I do/see?

Swimming in the clear waters of the Kouang Si waterfall in Luang Prabang, Laos
Q. I'm going to be in China and Korea for a school consulting project in May, but have about 12 days to travel on the back end and want to go to SE Asia for a bit. I just wanted your thoughts on how to best spend my relatively short amount of time and money.

Bikes lined up at a Velib station in downtown Paris
You've probably seen it before, bicycles for rent from a machine, randomly setup around a city. It's not unique to Paris, but its a cheap, quick, and cool way to find your way around the city. You'll need to buy a ticket for the day for 1€, then trips less than 30 minutes are free, the next half hour is 1€, the following half hour is 2€, and from then on it costs 4€ per 30 minutes. You're then free to bike through Paris for as long as you like, and drop it off at any other station when you're done. Be warned that if your credit card doesn't use the chip and pin system, you won't be able to use it for Velib.

A view of Monte Louro, Lagoa de Xalfas and the Atlantic Ocean outside of Muros, Spain
Monte Louro is a small peninsular mountain wedged between the Atlantic Ocean and a small lagoon, Lagoa Xalfas, in Galicia, Spain. The Monte Louro Nature Preserve is accessible from AC-550, just north of the town of Muros. It’s a great day trip from Santiago de Compostela, just 45 miles if you take the coastal route, or if you want to stay the night campsites are available.

Cornmarket, a nice place to start your walking tour of Ballinrobe, Ireland
Ballinrobe (Baile an Róba), located in County Mayo, Ireland, is a small historical town about 45km North of Galway. You can take the N84 by car, or try to catch one of the few buses that make a stop in the town. The bus is a local bus, so be prepared to make frequent stops. Also, the road the bus takes is narrow and windy, and unless you have iron guts or are capable of vomiting a controlled stream into a Pringles can like the girl sitting across from me, you should drive yourself. The town makes for a nice stop, but everything it has to offer can be seen in a leisurely hour or two.

The front of the Plough and Harrow pub
If you find yourself in Cardiff, and you have access to a car, take the ride about 20 miles west to the town of Monknash where you'll find a nice little pub with a cool history. Sample their fine Welsh ales and be sure to try their food. Read about their history from the menu and you’ll find the Plough and Hammer has been around for over 600 years, and has become home to a handful of ghosts over this time.

View of Andorra La Vella
If you're trying to figure out how to get from France to Spain during or around summer, then here's the answer. Rent a car and drive through the Pyrenees. If you enjoy driving, rent something sporty for the mountain roads. Stop and spend a few hours in the highest capital in Europe, Andorra La Vella. Enjoy the fresh mountain air, snap some photos, buy some novelty size bottles of alcohol for cheap, then continue on the pleasant mountain drive. Keep your eye out for castle ruins spread throughout, especially between Andorra and Spain. Expect steep tolls when driving the roads in France.
