I'm headed for Riga, Latvia for work for the second time. On the first go-round, I had very little time off, so this time I wised up and tacked a couple vacation days onto the end of my trip so I can do some traveling. But where should I go, and how?! I'm overwhelmed with the possibilities. [more inside]

If things go well, I will be moving to Prague in the spring. I do have a friend there, however, I am trying to not bug them very much now as I am still in research stage. (I have a notebook filling up with info about the visa process, zivno, metro, all that. ) What I'm currently trying to figure out is the best way to go out about finding a place to live since I plan on staying and working after the course.

Flying into Munich for work and planning on visiting Salzburg for a day trip and Prague for 2 days. Would love to know recommended places but also if places are going to be closed around this time.
Going to Prague soon. Will be careful about all of the usual perils that tourists face when they are sight-seeing in a different country -- keeping an eye on my possessions, trying to avoid becoming an easy or inviting mark for pickpockets, generally staying aware of my surroundings. Are there any non-obvious words of caution that the Hive can offer? [more inside]
When I went to Copenhagen back in May, I went to the Louisiana Museum and the Viking Ship museum, both not too far from the city and incredibly awesome.

Recommend me awesome day trips for my trip that commences Friday night! [more inside]

I've just been watching the fascinating BBC documentary on stag weekends and prostitution. Whilst quite comprehensive with its conclusions, It got me wondering about how legal prostitution in the UK would be perceived. My question, then, is: what is the public opinion of prostitution in Amsterdam (and other such places). I remember during my time in Amsterdam asking the owner of a flower shop where the red light district was and receiving the most disgusted look I've ever had in my life. I sort of suspect that many people may share this sentiment, but please add your thoughts and experiences! Thanks.

Later this month, my boyfriend will be going to Prague on business for two weeks. Instead of packing two weeks worth of clean clothes, he'd like to take less and do laundry while he's over there. The big question is how? Are there public laundry facilities there? How do you find them? Specifically, he'll be at the Corinthia Towers Hotel. And, hey, as long as you're here: Got any general travel tips for the area? He travels internationally so there's no "OMG! I'm leaving American soil!" freak-out going on. This just happens to be a place he's never been so: should he get a phrase book, is it relatively easy for foreigners to get around, what should he make time to see, etc?
