- Day 6 - Ebisu & Shibuya What can I tell you about today? Ebisu. Fucking Ebisu. Well Ben found this article saying it was a ‘hip’ place to go, and my Lonely Planet Guide said it was one of the districts to visit - so we went. Ebisu is just outside of the center, so a longer tube ride and more money for the journey. We got off the Ebisu station and it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. Ben wasn’t sure where to find these 'hip’ places and my Lonely Planet Guide had only the Museum as a real landmark to the area. So we set off on about an 40minute trek through Ebisu before finding civilization. When we realized the museum wasn’t interesting we decided to go back to Shibuya to spend the evening - which took us about three changes on the tube to get back to. We were hungry so stuck to what we knew - Genki - the conveyer belt sushi place. Had some dinner and then tried to find some cool shops in the area. Shibuya 106 (

- We were sad to leave Edinburgh, but I was excited to visit the Shetland Islands. Our ferry was leaving from Aberdeen, so that was where we were headed. On the way, we drove by a sign that read Cairin Mega Maze, and I got way more excited than a 32 year old man should be when they read the words “Mega Maze” should get. Aberdeen could wait. The ferry wasn’t until the evening, and I had a maze to conquer.When we got there, we discovered that it was also a strawberry picking farm. The day was getting better and better! And they had sweets! And cheesecake! I was in Heaven! Thankfully, Doris was there with me to be the responsible adult in the situation, and we opted not to pay the 6 pounds to enter the children’s play area, which is where the maze was found. This, despite the fact that the children’s play area–which was packed with children playing, and did not include any fully grown men playing anywhere–also featured trampolines. Trampolines, people! Kids have all the fun, dammit.We picked and ate strawberries to our hearts’ and bellies’ content, then stuffed our faces with food and cheesecake before continuing on to Aberdeen. By the time we got to Aberdeen, though, we didn’t have much time before we had to be at the ferry terminal, so we took a quick stroll through a botanic garden and visited a nearby cathedral. On to Shetland!The Travelling Trooper Picks StrawberriesWe were sad to leave Edinburgh, but I was excited to visit the Shetland Islands.

Shetland Islands among best places to visit, says Lonely Planet guide
What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent?
Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil.
One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
looking for the best London Guide book!!!?
Lonely Planet is pretty good. There is also a great deal of information about London on
They also publish a book guide
looking for the best London Guide book!!!?
With London changing so rapidly, it's worth making sure that you buy not only a well written guide but also one that's been newly published / updated.
Lonely Planet's London guidebook is one of several I have for friends who come to stay and it's usually the one which comes up with the best information about interesting districts and individual places. But it is quite a heavy book to carry, so I've got an order in for the new edition of the pocket guide which is coming out this week:
The latest version of the full-sized edition was published in February, so if you don't mind the extra weight, it's a good option:
The other London guide my visiting friends always find really good is Time Out's London guide. They produce several - plus the iconic weekly magazine which is also worth buying while you're here for last-minute information on events.
Time Out is one of the official sponsors of the London 2012 Oympics, so the 2012 London guide also includes information about the games and the huge programme of festivities surrounding them. There'll be lots going on while you'll be here, so I'd recommend that one as well.
Time Out also produces London visitor apps. These aren't free of course, but they are reliable in terms both of their information and also the security of your smartphone.
What's the best Countries/Cities to visit?
I'm nearly 24 and i'm single and I like meeting new people and really want to visit lots of different places. Not even to party like a normal 24yr old. Just to visit cool attractions an stuff
So whats some good places to visit, City breaks would be a quick way to explore.
I've been Toronto, Canada...
Can anyone from Scotland help me think up some Scottish names for my new Shetaland Sheepdog puppies?
You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
Is the JR pass worth the expense?
JR+Shinkansen pass gets you to any city in Japan.
My suggestion would be to grab the Lonely Planet Guide to Japan ASAP.
A seasoned traveler, would create an itinerary based on a 7 day pass. For example, if you were to go to Osaka, you would stay there 3 days and explore Kyoto, Nara and Osaka without activating the pass. To get to Miyajima, Hiroshima, Iga, etc. that are a little farther away (including a hot spring resort that I've forgotten the name where everyone walks around in robes visiting 7 different spas), use that pass so that you can still use Nara or Kyoto as a base and then head to Tokyo where you may want to visit Mt. Fuji, Nagano, Hakone or just use the JR system to get around the city (which is far more extensive in Tokyo than Kansai). A shinkansen ticket is usually around $100+ one way so a day trip from Kyoto to Miyajima or Hiroshima pays for the passes already.
The way to evaluate is assume you are making a day trip from let's say Kyoto to Nara -- you can walk most of the city and sites so your only cost would be round trip tickets from Kyoto to Nara station via Kintetsu or JR ($8?). Unless you are spending $30 per day per person riding local JR trains or plan to use the Shinkansen 9 of 14 days, you won't get your money's worth from a 14 day pass.
BUT There is definitely something to be said for having the luxury of travelling anywhere you want, whenever you want, as often as you want without having to worry about always having to buy tickets for the entire vacation -- especially if you are a MUST SEE IT ALL type of traveler. This is kind of a once in a lifetime thing so this kind of freedom to some is worth the extra $150-$200. For example, what if someone in your group gets sick in the middle of the pass activation or there is a festival you MUST go to in Nagano on the 1st Day of the trip....
Create your itinerary and then decide...and don't forget that Lonely Planet Guide.
[EDIT: I forgot to mention, these JR + Shinkansen passes are only available outside of Japan and are usually purchased from a travel agency -- look for one specializing in Japan travel)]
'Edmonton like a local': Scathing Lonely Planet review inspires insider's guide to city When Vikki Wiercinski heard Edmonton described as a "frigidly cold" government town in a less-than flattering Lonely Planet review, she decided to stick up for her city with a new guidebook. The graphic designer has produced and printed a crowd-sourced insider's guide of the city called Edmonton, It's Fine here! 45 Ways to Edmonton Like a Local. Wiercinski said the guide is a cheeky, yet practical reaction to a snarky Lonely Planet review which sparked outrage in the city when it was published in April.

Why is the Lonely Planet Mongolian phrasebook so small?
Lonely Planet's Mongolian Phrasebook & Dictionary has only 212 pages, while Japanese has 272 pages, and Chinese has 256 pages. Also, the Mongolian phrasebook does not have some sections that other phrasebooks have. (In fairness, the phrasebook also has some sections that are specifically about Mongolian topics)Is this because Mongolian phrasebooks are less commonly purchased than other languages, and they deal with the reduced revenue by creating less content?Am I likely to encounter this with other Lonely Planet phrasebooks about less popular languages, and/or with other publishers' phrasebooks about Mongolian?
