Where to stay near Minneapolis airport (MSP) before very-early flight?

Next Thursday I have a 515a flight (on American née US Air, so Terminal 1 is my point of departure) out of MSP. Assuming I'll go through security at around 400-415, it seems silly to stay at a hotel the night before. The airport is open 24 hours. What I'm curious about is if I can I go through security around midnight and try to catch a few ZZZs in the terminal? If not, can I sleep safely outside of security, or will local law enforcement tell me to move along? [more inside]

How can we be an excellent foreign exchange host family?

We're in the U.S. and will have an 11th grader from France with us for the upcoming school year. Never hosted before or been exchange students ourselves. We have 2 kids, one of them the same age as the student. We've done the agency's orientation, but what tips do you have for making our young man feel at home and helping him get the most out of his time with us?

What to do with passport when traveling internationally?

For a long time, I have been under the impression that it was the law in (most? all?) countries that a foreign visitor must carry one's passport on or about one's person at all times while in the country. Recently, someone challenged this view, and I am having trouble finding definitive answers on the Internet, and am hoping you all can help nail this down. (I do realize that the letter of the law and actual common practice often differ, but for the purpose of this question, I am interested in the actual law, not in common practice.)

I'm in Munich for three days this summer (around the last of week of June) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for hostels? I'd prefer a social atmosphere but nothing too party-oriented. Also, what are some must-see and must-do things for a short visit to Munich?

Confusingly expensive hotels in San Francisco

So after a lifetime of wanting to visit the US, I've been invited to a conference in Pasadena in September, and so am tagging on a week of holiday at the end. I really want to go to San Francisco and explore the surrounding area, however looking at hotels, ones that are in guides or previous AskMeFi posts as being around $100-150 per night are coming up as $300-400 per night, so 4-5 nights of stay is around $1000.

Help me cope with my anxiety about my wife's anxiety!

My wife struggles with anxiety and paranoid thoughts about our marriage. She'll often start asking questions of me about where I've been, if I'm seeing anyone else, whether I want to leave her and whether I think I'd be better off without her. I'm used to this, and I know that these are just intrusive thoughts rather than what she rationally believes, but I'm about to go away for work and I can't stop feeling anxious about what might happen whilst I'm away.

Yet another travel rec question!

We're looking for advice on where to go this summer! We have narrowed it down to two options: Malta & Cyprus or Central Europe (some combination of Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland). We've seen a lot of Europe, but not any of these places (I was sick in Munich for a couple days a decade ago, but that's it). Obviously it's kind of silly to ask which of these trips is "better", so we're looking for feedback based on our preferences & parameters, listed below the fold. [more inside]
