So I am pondering a trip to Scotland. I know nothing at all other than that I think it is beautiful. If I were trying to find some place to go that possibly included the following desires (listed after the general questions) A.) Are there any good websites to explore for booking purposes B.) Have you dealt with any companies that you really enjoyed... Desire list: B&B style accommodations, in the country, the greener the scenery-the better, horses are good & preferred, water for swimming is cool- but not absolutely needed, booze must be easily found, good food huge plus Any words or links of wisdom?

I am an American living in overseas, and do not have access to computer stores. In addition, shipping here is prohibitively expensive (shipping a laptop via DHL's lowest cost option would be just over $500, and no retailer I have found ships here directly anyway.). I will be in Canada (Toronto) for two days, starting tomorrow, and need a new Thinkpad. Is this possible? I had no warning on this trip, and obviously cannot wait two+ weeks for delivery as the Lenovo website states. [more inside]

Help me find a beach getaway in Texas that's cheap and easy enough to let me do it a few times a year when the mood strikes me.

I've got about $20k saved up and no real responsibilities. I'm quitting my job soon, and before heading to grad school sometime in the next year or two, I'd like to do some serious traveling. I haven't really been anywhere in the world, but I'm interested in everywhere. Where are the cheapest countries/regions to go to now, and how long can $20k last me there? The experience of traveling is what I'm after, so I really will be making my decision based on where my money will go the furthest.
