Amtrak without eTicket?

We just purchased Amtrak tickets for our in-laws, making the selection "pick up from ticket agent." We were sent eTickets. In-laws do not have the technical savvy to receive or print eTickets. One faq I found says that you can pick up tickets from an agent if you have ID and the credit card. If that's true, the credit card will be a problem, since it was ours. Anyone know for sure?

Headed to Tokyo around New Year, what's closed and what can't I miss?

I am going on vacation! To Tokyo! I will be there from Christmas to a few days after the new year, and I've seen a lot of people saying their office is closed for that week. As a first timer and tourist, what can I expect to be disrupted by the New Year's holidays? Transit? Restaurants? Museums? Is there anything going on I positively must see?

Driving the Coquihalla in winter

In two weeks I need to drive from Vancouver to Vernon, I've rented a car, as I don't have all season tires, it's cheaper to rent, plus if a car ends up in a ditch it won't be mine. My question is what site should I check for current road conditions aside from Drive BC? Also, how do I determine whether to go north through Kamloops or South through Kelowna? Who has the best real time updates? [more inside]

August travel?

We never travel in August, because that's when everyone else travels. But next year we have a big birthday to celebrate in August, and want to take a nice trip somewhere. What's a good place to go (anywhere in the world) that is at its best in August? 30-something couple, no kids, experienced travellers.

Christmas Sights and Doin's in Boston

My family will be joining me in the Boston area for Christmas this year, for the first time, for only a few days surrounding the 25th. If we were in NYC, near where I grew up, I'd know exactly what to do - see the windows, Rockefeller Ctr, St. Patrick's, the Grand Central train show...but I don't know what the Boston equivalents of these sightseeing traditions are. One caveat: Boston seems big on performing arts events for the holidays, and we probably aren't going to be able to coordinate schedules for ticketed events. I'm looking for things you can just drop in to. [more inside]

Two Weeks in Spain, how to divide up the time between cities?

We're going to Spain for two weeks in January. I've been told Barcelona is very fun and Madrid is dull but has great museums. How many days should we devote to each city? We like fine food, queer events, second hand clothes shopping, fancy bars, historical sites, and things you don't need a car to see. Would love to go out into the countryside if we can on public transportation. Is there a great reason to stay in Bracelona and just day trip to Madrid? Or vice versa? [more inside]

Self guided hikes in Japan?

Next summer, a friend of mine and I will be traveling in Japan. We would like to do a combination of cultural tourism and hiking, so our preference would be to choose bases from which it would be easy to do day hikes. Our preference is for longer and/or more strenuous day hikes. Where should we go? [more inside]
