Programs that will let me travel to Europe

Hello folks! I am looking for a way to spend the next 4-6 months travelling around Europe (I have some money saved up). Does anyone know ways to work for money or volunteer in Europe, preferably with a group of others? I don't have EU citizenship. Has anyone had any positive or negative experiences doing this? Thank you, and Happy (upcoming) New Year!

A long walk in Philadelphia and New York: Where should I be going?

Last year around the holiday, there was a trip to Chicago that ended up having an awesome walk down Clark Street for five or six miles. My boyfriend and I had a great time and want to replicate the experience in Philadelphia and Manhattan/ possibly the other boroughs. So, Philadelphia and New York people, what route would you recommend? Route preferences: between 5-7 miles, photogenic architecture, relatively safe neighborhoods, and not exclusively through highly touristed areas. We will be staying in Philadelphia and traveling by train to NYC so somewhere near a commuter train station would also be great but not absolutely necessary. I like snobby coffee, book stores, and craft beer, so any walk that incorporates some of those along the way would be great. Also open to suggestions for activities, shows, or other interesting things to do between Jan 9 and 13 in either city.

Facebook etiquette for what is basically, a year-long vacation?

After years of saving and planning, I've been able to realize my dream of traveling the world for a year. I'm 6 months into my trip and I've been posting photos or updates about where I am in the world on facebook about 2 or 3 times a week. While many people have expressed appreciation for the updates or interest in what I'm doing, I've noticed about 7-10 friends who used to interact with me all the time on FB and real life have totally stopped liking/commenting/sending messages although they're still very active on the site. I kind of suspect some of them have blocked me from their timelines. I know not everyone will have an opportunity like this and I try to be sensitive to that. I'm not preachy about "the importance of travel", or posting pics of 5 star hotel rooms and fancy restaurants (I'm doing this as cheaply as possible, mostly hostels in developing countries and couchsurfing.) At the same time I LOVE seeing others' travel pics and, well, want to share some of the exciting, amazing things I'm experiencing with people in my life. But some people seem put off by this, so I'm wondering - am I being a jerk? What's the etiquette here?

What to do in Albany on a weekday in January.

I have to take a crash solo trip to Albany, NY in mid-January for a (very short) business meeting on a Wednesday morning and another meeting the next day. I will be staying in a hotel near the SUNY campus, and my meetings are downtown. I'm looking for suggestions of things to do afterwards on Wednesday, as I will have the whole day and evening to kill, as well as a bit of time on Thursday morning. I will not have a car or bike, but am perfectly happy to walk sizable distances or take public transit, and though I plan on dressing appropriately for the weather, I'd prefer activities that involve at least some amount of indoor time, are open on a weekday, and are on the cheaper end. Suggestions on places to eat are also welcome! Oh, and though I have driven through it, I have never actually been there before. Thanks!

Taking frozen cookie dough on a cross country trip - bad idea?

I'm planning to spend Christmas at the family home, but apparently the task of Christmas baking falls to me when I get there. I was hoping to get started early and wondered if I could make these icebox-style gingersnaps, and tuck the frozen cookie dough logs into a ziplock bag in my suitcase. Gate to gate is roughly nine hours, though at this time of year, it seems best to consider potential weather delays too.

How I made my first million?

About 10 years ago I inherited my grandmas small fortune of paper and coin currency she amassed during the 70's and 80's while visiting nearly 100 world countries. The shoebox-collection contains maybe 200 coins and 100 paper notes, and some of them are really quite impressive! I've been lugging this box around for years and the time has come to finally part with it (sorry grandma). I'm not a coin collector and really don't know much about any of it, but with the help of a few books I researched a handful of coins and notes only to find out they're not worth diddly (<$1, if that). I have a feeling most of the collection is like this except for a few gold Rand coins and some notes that were previously appraised. Hivemind: what are some ways to liquidate my collection?
