Boston to Brattleboro: Scenic routes/suggestions?

We are planning a quick 2-night getaway trip to Brattleboro, leaving from North of Boston. I'd love your help choosing a route that will be scenic to drive, but not too too long, and also your recommendations for interesting, quirky, fun stops between here and there, and/or things to do while based there. We enjoy history, food, drink, farming, music, vintage/flea stuff, Americana, hiking, canoeing, etc. We've never spent time in the town before and will be staying right downtown. Thank you!

Short trip to Guatemala: Tikal or Lake Atitlan? Or both?

Hi! I am traveling to Guatemala City for work and will have three (well, maybe 2.75) days to myself. I definitely want to visit Antigua. I'm worried that cramming in expeditions to Lake Atitlan AND Tikal on the other two days will keep me busier than I'd like to be...but I also don't want to regret not seeing such amazing places. (I have bad travel FOMO.) [more inside]

Travel Ennui

I am midway through a Round the World trip, which I have had to put on hold for the most unexpected of reasons: I don't care where I travel to next. I have dropped anchor for a while to address this situation, but having done so, I now wake up every day and look inside to find, well, nothing. So do I call it a day and head home, or roll the dice and carry on regardless? [more inside]

Architectural salvage tourism?

I have a Victorian house in Southern California and am interested in restoring it using period-appropriate house parts. These are in short supply in my area and most architectural salvage places are not so internet-savvy, so I'm wondering if there might be a part of the country within road trip distance where the pickings are better.

Up-to-date travel advice: Germany, Austria, Czech Republic

we're leaving next week for a US to Germany [Munich] to Austria to Czech Republic [Prague]. Our plan was to use train travel--how difficult is this with current events and great numbers of people seeking refuge across Europe? Are there English language websites that would provide us with reliable information? Any other advice for us? Hitch-hiking is not an option. thank you

Help Me Gift Myself

I escaped a long-term abusive marriage homeless with a lot of hermit like attributes. It's been about three years of clawing and crawling out of that hole, and while I'm not completely out, I do have an apartment, job, friends, and enough money to feed me and my kid three squares a day. That deserves a celebration and I'm determined that I'm going to spend a long weekend with my best friend in London in December as a combo birthday/holiday gift to myself. I want to see Hyde Park done up for the holidays, do a Jack the Ripper tour, eat in a pub, and visit a museum [more inside]
