Family-friendly travel suggestions for India or points nearby

I'll be traveling with my wife and our 2.5 year old daughter from the USA to India in early November for a very good friend's wedding in Pune. We'd like to get there 3-4 days early and decompress/adjust to jet lag/settle in. I'd love suggestions for a place to stay! [more inside]

Nashville, Friday night on Broadway for the less rowdy

Travelling to Nashville this weekend for the first time. We are seeing a show in the early evening, I think it’ll be done around 9:30. We want to see live music at bar afterwards and are considering hitting the Broadway strip. Difficulty level – amongst our group are some non-drinking 60yr olds who will not be very comfortable with college kid rowdiness. [more inside]

Plane transfer timeline for international flights through Toronto

My wife and I are planning a trip to the UK in August/September. We're looking at flying out of Minneapolis/St. Paul on Air Canada, with a stop at Toronto before continuing on to Heathrow, with the same itinerary reversed on the way back. Will an hour and a half be enough time in Toronto between flights? Since both our flights are international, will we be required to go through any kind of customs screening in Toronto on either leg, or will we be in the international terminal/area the whole time?

Tips for a first-time music festival attendee?

I've never been to a multi-day music festival, but this fall's Basilica Soundscape in Hudson, NY looks like it might be perfect- the price is right for camping, it's not terribly far away or hard to get to by Amtrak, and it won't interfere with my school schedule. What would experienced festival-goers recommend? Has anyone been to previous Basilica Soundscapes? [more inside]

One Week Tour

I'm planning to take a solo vacation the first week of August, and would like to go on an all-inclusive organized tour. I enjoy learning and trying new things and would really like the tour to be friendly/sociable. Cheaper is better (total budget: under $1000). I'm in good shape but am a city girl and not very into nature. I'll be leaving from Washington, DC. Where should I go? What should I do? What tours do you recommend? [more inside]

What's the best way to live in Vienna for 6-9 months?

My SO will be doing research in Vienna from September-June 2016, and we've decided our child will stay in Vienna as well, and I'm thinking about joining them. I have a good job in the US that I can not take with me, but I might be able to cobble together enough freelancing work (I'm a programmer) so that it's not a complete financial bloodbath. What should I look out for in terms of laws about taxes and working in the EU/Austria? (nb: US citizen) [more inside]

ideas for a short exciting vacation?

I have a week of unspoken-for vacation coming up in October. I'm going to be somewhere in Europe at the start of this time. I'd like to do something memorable and exciting. I have bucket-list items like rafting the Futaleufu in Chile, trekking in Nepal, touring Mongolia, going to Antarctica, ..., but they all seem to require around 3 weeks. Any ideas for what I can do along these outdoorsy, thrillseek-y lines in one week? Willing to travel wherever in theory, but again, time is the main constraint. [more inside]
