“The Ugly House (Ty Hyll) should be included in the food section. The food is better than its sister cafe at Llanwrst (Ty Hwnt). The most major omission is surely Ffin y Parc, the Country House Art Gallery about 1 mile south of Llanwrst. Not only is it a major Gallery with new exhibitions each month, but it serves superb food (try the quiche) and coffee in a magnificent setting.”

“Hi, I will be taking a trip to Costa Rica with a friend in June. We are only 19 so we can't rent a car. We would like to stay for 7-10 days. I was looking at all the wonderful parks And locations you wrote about hoping to narrow down to a few places we can visit. It's to hard and overwhelming. I was hoping you had a small list of recommendations of locations. We aren't very experienced travelers yet so we are hoping to come up with a organized planned trip.”

“Bonne Fete! Yes, Sala Rossa in Plateau has reasonable Spanish eats and a really intimate live music space -there is a band Thursday only $9. Metropolis has Animal Collective Friday about $25. Then just go bar hopping! Crescent St downtown is very touristy but tons of bars/lounges/restos. In Plateau near Sala Rossa along St. Laurent Blvd, St Denis St. and Mont Royal Ave - tons of bars, cafes, specialty shops - just stroll. Lots of eats on Duluth Prince Arthur.

I would explore the Embarcadero, Crissy Field and drive to the Golden Gate Bridge (can you park in a handicapped spot?) - all the major indoor destinations are wheelchair friendly, and many other as well.

“We blew our only Saturday night in Havana on the Bolero night, which turned out to be hideous Euro-schlock karaoke (!?!) at ear splitting volume. UNEAC might consider the irony of promoting karaoke, given the quality of under-employed musicians in the city. Avoid.”
“That sucks. Sorry you had this experience. For others reading this: it always pays to call ahead to see if a function is actually happening (I showed up for a jazz concert last week that had been cancelled) and what it is. Cubans LOVE karaoke by the way and for locals, this is probably a stellar night out.”

“This is an excellent practical question. Overall, spring and autumn in San Francisco can be glorious, warm, and sunny. The summer, as Mark Twain observed, can be chilly due to the fog. His famous comment was, "The coldest winter I ever spent was my first summer in San Francisco." Winter can be overcast and rainy, but may be clear and sunny, depending on the year.

For inexpensive food, eat ethnic in Chinatown, Koreatown, Little Italy. I list recommended spots for each. Cafe Edison, Eisenberg's, Corner Bistro, Fanelli Cafe, Shake Shack, Gray's Papaya offer good value as does pizza at Grimaldi's, John's, Lombardi's.

“Hi Connor,
Thanks for such a great app. It's been so helpful in planning our trip to Havanna in a few weeks (soooo excited!!). Just wanted to ask you a quick question, how much can you expect to pay for a private tour guide per day in Havana? And also do you know any good ones you can recommend? :)
Thanks again!”
“Hi there! You should be able to get a good guide/translator for $50/day. Some tips include testing their level of English skills before contracting, specifying how many hours you’d like them for a day, and paying as you go – not for an entire week, say, beforehand. I do not have anyone to rec’d unfortunately: all the best folks I know are booked up. Good luck!”

“I love this app and can't wait to use it again during my next visit to Rome. Suggestion: perhaps a drop down for spots good for solo diners?”
“Thanks! Actually, every single place in the app is fine for single diners. I often dine alone for work and never feel out of place.”

“You are right about this little coffee shop, I will have to tell those at home who told me to prepare for a couple of weeks of mediocre coffee to drop in here when in Chiang mai. Beautiful macchiato and very friendly atmosphere, happens to be about 8 or 10 minutes walk from my room. Good spot to catch up with what's happening in the world, it's just a shame Australia is getting thrashed in the cricket! The staff here will know me by name before I go home!!”

“Feb, 2013
Just tried to visit the Forbidden City today to find out it is closed on Monday's in the winter.”
“Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I hadn't heard about this. Have just doubled checked and this is the deal: From Jan 1st to March 31st this year (2013) the Forbidden City will be closed for maintenance every Monday afternoon. So if you have no choice but to see the Forbidden City on a Monday, make sure you go in the morning.”

“I travelled with my 14month old to stock up and try the coffee,it was worth the taxi ride. Went away happy beans with plenty of fresh ground coffee too.”

“I stayed here a couple nights recently. Jesus is a sweet person but I felt like I was staying at a hostel not a Casa particular. If you want to be in habana vieja and don't mind sharing a gritty bathroom with working chicas, this might be the place for you.”
“Ugh. Working chicas and all that entails can put a damper on all sorts of things – including peaceful sleep. Plus gritty/grotty bano? Sucks double. Sorry you had this experience and I very much appreciate you writing in with it.”

“We loved this place! Tried all of your suggestions: cafe arabe, lamb Ararat, hummus, all were excellent. The chicken dish with honey was very good too. They now do mehndi on your hands or other body parts. Cool place for a special occasion!”
