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]

Europe-filter: Finding somewhere to settle down at 30

I've moved towns seven times in three years and I'm tired of it! I'd like to settle down in a place, make a life there - build a community, make friends, form relationships, get involved in things and become a genuine part of a community rather than just a transient person moving from town to town because of an overheated, insecure housing market. I'm currently based in the UK and looking at the UK and the rest of the EU only. [more inside]

Airport highlights for Doha, Mumbai, and Delhi?

Any particular highlights inside these airports? I'm looking for unusual things to do, interesting views of outside or airport-workings, particularly good people-watching, food? If my best option is to park myself with a book and a snack, where should I get the snack, and where should I sit? [more inside]

is 3.5 hrs enough time to do anything with in/near Brussels airport?

I'm changing planes in Brussels, on a Monday later in Sept. One flight lands at 11:55, the other takes off at 15:35. My feeling is that I won't have enough time to do anything worthwhile, and I should just bring a book and wait it out. Is that correct? Bonus question: is there anywhere you'd recommend to sit & wait, in or near the airport?

What's the least stressful way to get from Western Mass to Boston?

Tomorrow I have a meeting on Beacon St. in the mid-afternoon. I'm coming from Western Mass. I have a car and I'm happy to drive most of the way but I really hate and fear driving in downtown Boston. What are my best options for avoiding that? I'm looking for good park-and-ride locations, mostly, preferrably cheap, that I can take the T from.
