Thailand travel planning: trying to get from chiang mai to krabi to Denapasar,Bali as effectively as possible. So far I found these options: use Air Asia to phuket from chiang mai and take a cab for a couple hours to krabi. (to and and back) Use discover thailand fares from thai airways, but they dont have direct flight to krabi, so travel takes like almost the entire day :( Suggestions? travel time would be cnx to krabi 02/22 and krabi to bali 02/25.

I need to travel from Boston, MA to Detroit, MI to visit my family this Christmas break. I'm faced with three options - fly, bus, or drive. I have a severe peanut allergy, so I'm trying to choose the safest option for me (with a preference for shorter travel times). In particular, how safe might Greyhound bus and United Airlines be for the peanut-allergic? Fellow allergics, would wearing a surgical mask help? Personal stories welcome. [more inside]

Exchange student in Germany with Europe visa, passport stuck in UK visa office, wanna travel to France. Can this be done?
My friend, currently in Germany as an exchange student, applied for a UK visa about 15 days ago. The expected time of arrival of the visa was estimated at 10 days. However, the visa and the passport have yet not been returned from the UK. In the meanwhile, my friend needs to travel to France two days from now. Can she do so, carrying a copy of her passport/Europe visa and a letter from the UK visa office stating that the passport is currently in their possession? We understand that French authorities often ask people for their identification papers at random points in time - so will the documents in lieu of the passport hold water?

Mrs. COD and myself are headed to VA Beach this weekend, and my efforts to secure a nice hotel cheap via Hotwire / Priceline have not panned out. We are visiting with friends on Chick's beach, so staying somewhere around the Norfolk Airport keeps us within 15 minutes of their place, which is fine. Has anybody stayed at a Norfolk Airport hotel recently? The reviews on the travel sites are kind of scary, but I'm hoping it's just Internet trolling and it's not really that bad. Cheap is good - we just need a place to crash Saturday night. Any recommendations from recent personal experience?

I am flying into London Stansted later this week. I'll be meeting a friend who works in Central London, and then driving with them to South Yorkshire. We'd like to meet somewhere in far North London/Beds/Herts that is as least somewhat on the way from Stansted to the M1, probably somewhere off the M25, and ideally a relatively small, uncomplicated town (I haven't driven manual or on the left for a couple of years and this is going to be during rush hour!). It should also be easy to get to on the train from Kings Cross or Euston. I don't know the area, so I'm going by Google Maps at the moment. Our current plan is Potters Bar station. Any better ideas?
