Is this a good use for a travel agent, and if so, can you recommend one?

I'm planning to fly to Peru this summer with my late 60's mother. She isn't comfortable flying alone, so I need to meet up with her in Dallas or Houston to fly the rest of the way. She lives in Texas. I live in NYC. I am considering whether it would be worth it to use a travel agent. [more inside]

Things to do in Rhodes (ideally including dancing)

We are going to Rhodes for a week in June. What should we do and see?

Any particularly lovely spots for swimming would also be wonderful. We would love to hear about a wide range of options, though. [more inside]

When is a layover stop too short?

I was booked via Travelocity to fly through Washington Regan with about 36 minutes between flights...same airline, same terminal, different aircraft. I thought that was cutting it close. Since then the airline has changed flight times and now there would be only 30 minutes between flights. Do I stand any chance asking for an earlier first leg? They have a flight every hour. Complication: Non-refundable ticket.

Yellowstone in July -- A Bad Idea?

We have an opportunity to visit Yellowstone National Park and/or environs, and Mt Rushmore, etc. BUT, the window is limited to the first 2 weeks of July. Is that a horrible time to visit, given that I hate crowds and 85+ degree temps without relief (breaks in air conditioned spaces)? In terms of potential crowds of people, are there places nearby YNP that are less crowded and just as interesting/beautiful to visit? (We'd be driving between Colorado and Minnesota.)

Which cities in Africa speak the most French?

Things to do in Newport Beach CA

Looking for suggestions for cool/quirky places to see in an afternoon at Newport Beach (history, nerdy, technology, walks/views, etc.). I'll probably head down towards the beach, and take it from there. Bike rental is a possibility. Cheap-ish (non-fancy) seafood and Asian places would be appreciated. I could also stand a $20-25 cab ride each way to somewhere interesting. Thank you! [more inside]

Relatively contemporary preferred. Thanks!

High-speed think-on-your-feet logistical-planning vacation?

A friend and I take a trip once a year together. Usually it's been something like a national park, but last year we said "screw it, let's go to Disney World" - and had so much fun; not so much because "Disney" but because of the challenges of high-speed navigating a complex ecosystem of timing and logistics and transportation and reservations. What can we do next year that would scratch the same kind of itch? Anywhere in the world is fine. [more inside]
