Help me plan a long-weekend getaway in the Southwest. I don't have enough time to make it a road trip, but would like to drive down some scenic roads. I don't want to camp in the wilderness, but would like see a national park. I don't want a full native-american experience, but would love to buy some native american jewelry. Some shopping/dining would be cool. I want to take more photographs than I'll ever have time to upload to flickr. [more inside]

I'm in Wayne, PA until Monday for a wedding. I've never been to this town--what can I do/see around here? Where are the best places to eat?
Tips for things to do in the Philadelphia area would also be very appreciated!

I moved to US and Florida (Miami) recently and I am leaving this weekend (Friday after work, so 7PM-ish) for a small roadtrip. We are planning to sleep somewhere along the road (probably on a motel), staying saturday night somewhere nice, and returning on sunday.
I will be traveling with my wife and we love getting to know different places, small towns, good food and some shopping too.
We'd love to have an interesting road to drive, but I guess my options are either I-75 or I-95, right?
So here's my question: between somewhere in GA (maybe even getting to Atlanta?) and somewhere in NC (any advice is welcome), and something else, what would you pick? Why?

I have a friend who will be travelling in Europe this summer. She'll be in Iceland for a few days, then Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and finally Stockholm. She'll be travelling with an unlocked iphone 3GS. What are her best options for prepaid cellphone service? There wouldn't happen to be a single company that could cover her for most of northern europe, would there?

The RER B trains which go to the Paris airport were severely delayed on the morning of June 6, causing me to miss my flight. I have travel delay insurance, but the insurance company requires evidence of the train delay before I can make a claim. How would I get this evidence?

A friend and I are planning a trip to Wales (we're both in the UK). The only thing she really wants to do is go to Snowdonia and do a bit of hiking, and the only thing I really want to do is go to Milford Haven
, the town where my grandmother grew up. We also might want to visit a castle. How can we do this, without a car? [more inside]

Renter's insurance and travel, special libelous snowflake edition: I live in New York City and want renter's insurance that (a) covers libel and (b) will cover my wife's nice (~$2k with lenses) camera *when she is travelling*. I can't get a straight answer out of any insurance companies on what their policies actually cover. Can anyone recommend a company? [more inside]

My girlfriend recently got a job in Bolivia teaching for a private school in Cochabamba. This is great and everything except I have no clue what to do in terms of planning for our move, how to get a job in Bolivia or what needs to happen in the two months before we leave. Snowflake goodness after the jump. [more inside]

Help me pack in a nice 3 day weekend in DFW with my wife. I've got Rangers tickets for Sunday's game 5/29. I think I want to stay at a Hilton with a nice pool situation. (I've got a boatload of points, so can likely stay at deep discount) I want to do a 5 mile run somewhere scenic on Saturday and maybe Monday morning. Other than that, I love to eat, drink, and spend money. [more inside]

I booked a flight from Stockholm to San Francisco, connecting in Frankfurt, through Continental Airlines website. However the flight from Stockholm to Frankfurt is operated by SAS, and from Frankfurt to SFO by United. Which airline should I check in with in Stockholm: SAS, United, or Continental? Will they give me tickets for both flights when I check in in Stockholm? Will they check my luggage all the way through to SFO? I can't find any info online, thanks for any help!

Can'tFindThisVideoAgainFilter: YouTube, perhaps; within last 6 months. A couple of guys go back in time (!) and keep a diary. They return to the present and assert that birds are just dinosaurs. Pretty sure the punchline was something close to my tagline above. Much better than as described...
