We would be tres sad to eat expensive frou frou food that is not also surprising and good. Or to stand in line at Disneyfied tourist attractions. Or to stay in town the whole time if there's something not to miss if you have a rental car. [more inside]

My brother has saved up enough to take a six-month round the world trip. I'd like to give him a gift pack of stuff for the trip. Things I already have: a lounge access membership, some packing cubes, a travel journal. I'd love to find something more creative, too. [more inside]

Our hospital is having a couple of Sri Lankan visitors for two weeks to observe and take notes around improving their hospital back home. We've volunteered to host one of them.

For the first time in my life I'm in former british colony countries that drive on the left side of the road. I find some things a lot easier now. And I'm wondering if there's any study or facts that say which side of the road IS better to drive on. Like our eyes reading left to right. Or reaction time for non dominant hands on wheels. Is there any math that says one side is better than the other?

So we booked a flight from San Jose, CA to Washington DC for a friend's wedding this April with Frontier Air. We just got an email from Frontier saying that the first leg of our trip (San Jose to Denver) was rescheduled up by 24 hours. This means we need to take an extra day off work to sit in Denver's airport over night, which is not awesome. They don't seem to be very interested in finding us an alternate or much compensation. What can we do? [more inside]
Mrs Ashtray Elvis and myself have some time to spend in Downtown Orlando...by ourselves. We need a place to stay, cool paces to eat and stuff to do. We have 48 hours, no car and would preferably like to walk where possible but are open to stuff further afield. There seems to be some information out there but most centers around the theme parks.
I am super allergic to seafood as far as allergy testing has shown. I'm in the US and avoid it religiously, with yet to get a reaction. (Thankfully!) Let's just say it's probably epi-pen bad. I'm planning to travel to Korea and Japan in a year. I went to Korea for a month and was okay. I mostly ate rice, meat and desserts. I want to know if anyone with similar allergies and travel experiences have tips to stay safe. Locals who know about Japanese or Korean food would be appreciated too. [more inside]
