Grandpa was a POW in Spain and I just found my passport.

The sum total of my international traveling experience has been to take day trips into Baja (while I lived in LA) and day trips into Windsor (when I lived near Detroit,) two days in Toronto for my brother's wedding, and, oh yes, three hours walking around Niagara Falls last week because I was so happy I found my passport. Now I want to go to Europe, by myself, before my parents (who have been everywhere else first) beat me (they're going in September of 2011.) [more inside]

What might life be like if the Old World had never discovered the New?

Can anyone recommend fiction set in a world where the New World (i.e. the Americas) had never been discovered by the Old World? I am trying to envision what Native American culture might have evolved into, and what a present-day Europe might be like sans American cultural influences and with much greater population pressure.

One possibility is to have the surgery in Holland or Denmark where, as I understand it, the rates for HAI's is low compared to elsewhere. How do hospitals in these countries compare with those in the U.S. with respect to HAI and prices for services? [more inside]

Ticketing/reservation help for a Euro-rail novice

This summer I'm taking a trip to Europe that includes taking a train from Krakow to Hamburg (with a connection in Berlin) and then Kiel to Prague (also connecting in Berlin). Just booked the tickets online through bahn.de, but for the first stretch of the trip (Krakow to Berlin) it could not book me a reservation. What do I do now? The train is a Euro City (EC), so I'm pretty sure I need a reservation. Or do I? I'm used to taking Amtrak, so of course I have to plead ignorance on this. Please help a Euro-rail novice!
