*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

Going to take a trip on my own for the first time. I'm quite a disorganized mess so i would really appreciate some help from more experienced travelers like you guys.
Currently living in Amsterdam, thinking about going to Paris for a few days, alone, to clear my mind up a bit. Just got done working for like 10 straight months, 60+ hours a week, so money ain't really a issue.
What i would like some help with is mostly a place to sleep for a few days, thinking about going for a nice hotel, anyone got any tips?
Any nice tips for cool things to do in city would also be nice, nice restaurants and stuff. Got some things i already want to do like going to a cognac farm, and the usual touristy things.

/trv/, I'm allergic to mosquitos, though not severely, and I travel a lot in the third world.
Can you recommend a mosquito net? Most of them seem to be made of polyester, and I'm concerned they'll trap too much heat and moisture at night.
And while we're at it, what anti-mosquito measures do you take?
I usually just wear long pants, long sleeves, and desert boots. I tried sandals, but they went right for my ankles, and socks with sandals would be a sacrilege.
