Wheelchairs at the Airport

My fiancé just got his appendix removed and now we're flying to his sister's wedding. (It's been an exciting week.) We leave tomorrow from JFK on Jet Blue and I'm look for advice on navigating the airport with a wheelchair. Will they just have one at the curb? Will I be able to push him or will they insist on having an employee? Any good tricks? Things I might not have though of? Thanks!

Where to get UTI treatment in the USA

My fabulous new spouse and I are about to jet off from the UK on our honeymoon in the southern US (GA, AL, MS, TN). I'm in good health and have full travel insurance but tend to get 2-3 urinary tract infections in the course of an average year. I'm a little paranoid about getting one while I'm over there and would rather not end up accessing unduly expensive treatment for this very routine minor ailment and having to claim it on insurance etc. Where do I go for treatment?

Advanced Istanbul

I'll be spending 2 full days in Istanbul at the end of this month. It's my 5th time in this city; I think I've done all the touristy, central Istanbul things over the past three years. So what have I missed? What's worth a visit out in the suburbs? What about a day trip somewhere by train/coach? [more inside]

Risks of shipping in lieu of packing it on a plane?

Asking for Gnik Nus. Flying across the country to go rock climbing, a sport which relies on lots of heavy (and need I say pricey) gear. Will also be taking a bus from the airport to the destination. So, in an attempt to avoid lugging all the equipment, thinking about using USPS flat rate shipping boxes to have the stuff go to the house that's been rented specifically for this trip. [more inside]

Greencard - Change in citizenship (non-US)

I am a greencard holder. When I applied for my greencard I was a citizen of an EU country. It seems that I am not not a citizen of this country anymore, but am still a citizen of another country (non-EU) in West Europe. What happens if I want to leave/re-enter the USA using my greencard with a passport I have not used to enter/leave the US before. Does anyone have a good contact to get a solid answer about this? Or - even more basic - what happens when I try to leave the US with a passport I have not used to enter it?

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]

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.)

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.
