5 Mailbag Monday: March 1, 2010

We love answering questions and doling out advice, but we are no experts. Six months of travel gave us lots of great experiences, but there are still so so many places we've never been! Lots of people email us questions that we have no idea how to answer. So we thought we'd turn a few of these over to our travel-savvy readers for advice...feel free to provide answers in the comments section!

I have the opportunity to spend two days in Luxor this spring. With only 48 hours, what are the must-see sights?
-Bill S., Oregon USA

My husband and I are planning a trip to France and found your posts on Paris helpful in our planning. Do you have any suggestions for the Bordeaux region? Particularly can you recommend any wine estates to spend a few nights? -Christine, Ardmore PA USA

Send questions for the mailbag to


  1. Christine, I would def. recommend the Chateau Franc Mayne. Everything about this estate is awesome--the rooms, the grounds, and most importantly the wine! It's a working vineyard. It was my and my girlfriend's favorite place to stay in all of France.

  2. anyone would be a fool to try to fit luxor into two days

  3. I disagree. There is much to see in Luxor but two days planned correctly could be very satisfying. On the first day visit the Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple and perhaps the Luxor Museum. On the second day visit the Colossi, Ramses Temple and the Valley of the Dead. The sights are spread out so plan accordingly with taxi or bicycle.

  4. A hot-air balloon ride in Luxor is a must

  5. Thanks for the input on Luxor folks...can't wait!
