Two Weeks in Spain, how to divide up the time between cities?

We're going to Spain for two weeks in January. I've been told Barcelona is very fun and Madrid is dull but has great museums. How many days should we devote to each city? We like fine food, queer events, second hand clothes shopping, fancy bars, historical sites, and things you don't need a car to see. Would love to go out into the countryside if we can on public transportation. Is there a great reason to stay in Bracelona and just day trip to Madrid? Or vice versa? [more inside]

Help us get to Zurich

We are heading to Switzerland next spring and are researching the most efficient method of moving our bodies from Orlando to Zurich. In this case the word efficient means the melding of economy, few transfers and speed (ie: we don;t want to spend 24 hours making this journey). We found a direct flight from Tampa (point on transfers & speed, debits for economy) but there's no direct flight back. Options involving a single transfer that gets us close is optimum, as is flying out of Tampa or Jacksonville (we try to avoid the mess that is International travel through Miami).

Tips for online dating in the UK

I'm wondering what forms of online dating are most popular in the UK. I joined OKCupid but have only gotten copy-and-paste messages from creepy dudes and I get the impression that maybe this website is not as popular here as it is in the US (though I haven't used it in the US). Have dating websites become outdated? Is everyone on Tinder? Is Tinder only used for hooking up? Any thoughts or experiences with the current online dating scene would be appreciated.

Up-to-date travel advice: Germany, Austria, Czech Republic

we're leaving next week for a US to Germany [Munich] to Austria to Czech Republic [Prague]. Our plan was to use train travel--how difficult is this with current events and great numbers of people seeking refuge across Europe? Are there English language websites that would provide us with reliable information? Any other advice for us? Hitch-hiking is not an option. thank you

Europe-filter: Finding somewhere to settle down at 30

I've moved towns seven times in three years and I'm tired of it! I'd like to settle down in a place, make a life there - build a community, make friends, form relationships, get involved in things and become a genuine part of a community rather than just a transient person moving from town to town because of an overheated, insecure housing market. I'm currently based in the UK and looking at the UK and the rest of the EU only. [more inside]

Can debt chase you across European countries?

Don't get me wrong, I DO want to pay this debt, I just need to take care of some other things first. Say, if you have a smallish unpaid debt (2k euros back then, I don't want to think about how much it must be 9 years later) in Spain, and now you're starting new in Sweden, can this debt bite you in the ass before you've used your small savings to rent a house, buy groceries, etc. while you get a job that will help you pay said debt? Could your new Swedish bank account or other assets be frozen? [more inside]

Help me find English-language Zen Centers in (Eastern) Europe.

I've spent time in and around Zen centers before, though I'm really a complete beginner when it comes to Buddhism. I would like to spend a week (or more?) staying in a Zen center with a program tailored for beginners. Where can I find a center in Eastern Europe that has a program in English that would suit me? I'm willing to travel to Western Europe but would prefer to find something closer to home.

Pan-European Mobile Phone?

I need a mobile phone/SIM plan that will allow me to cross an international border every day. Someone told me that she paid €100/month for a plan with unlimited data, no roaming within the area encompassing the EU and Schengen, calls and texts all included. Unfortunately I can't find this mythical plan online. Does anyone know of an inclusive plan that allows users to cross borders within the region(s) without going to roaming?

Professional C-Print lab in Europe?

I'm an NYC-based photographer who has been asked about sending a print to Norway. My regular printer doesn't offer this option and USPS will cost perhaps $40 (I didn't check yet, just spitballing), so I was thinking that I might find a good lab there and send along my digital file, hopefully saving the client some cash in the process? I'm looking for a great lab that offers C-Prints at 16x20 and larger, and specifically 30x40. My ideal paper is Kodak Professional Endura Metallic, and my ideal language is English, though I could swing some common Romance languages in a pinch, maybe with Google Translate. [more inside]
