Best 2 night side trips from Rome?

I'm taking my mom, who is Italian-Canadian and in her sixties, to Italy for 9 days as a birthday present. She has never been to Italy (or Europe for that matter). I've travelled around Europe a fair bit, but have somehow missed Italy, despite the heritage connection. We're flying in and out of Rome and, while we know we could spend 9 days there and never run out of things to see, we would still like to take a side trip and see a bit more of the country. But where to? [more inside]

touring about architecture

I'm in search of a NYC architecture or photography tour -- or some other experience I'm not thinking of -- for a serious hobby photographer who is interested in architecture. I am avoiding tours that focus on pointing out landmarks, or anything that assumes unfamiliarity with a city. [more inside]

Vancouver end of December/early January

I'll be meeting a friend from the UK in Vancouver during the last week of December/first week of January. It's their first time to Canada, and I'm not overly familiar with Vancouver. Interests include music, kink, environment, pescatarian diet. They're extroverted and I'm not, so I'd appreciate offerings of unique things to do for NYE. [more inside]

How best to handle parking during Manhattan vacation?

We’re trying to figure out cheapest options. We’re driving to Manhattan (from Maryland) on Dec. 22 and leaving Christmas morning. We’re driving a small SUV with 5 people and luggage. Does it make the most sense to 1. Hope we can find a space in Manhattan near our hotel. 2. Find or reserve a garage and pay for 3 days of parking. 3. Park in Jersey City/Hoboken/Weehawken and cab/Uber in. Any suggestions appreciated.

Reasonable amount of time to spend in NYC?

We are possibly taking a trip to NYC to see a Broadway show - the timing will depend on when we can get tickets, but likely April-ish. We've never been before, and would love to do some sightseeing - how long is long enough for a quick trip to actually see things? Recommendations welcome! [more inside]

Where to go to escape winter

Hi. I’m looking for somewhere to go that is WARM (at least 70 degrees) and CHEAP for a long weekend in January. Preferably somewhere with a short travel time from Maryland. Budget is ~$1000 for me, a friend, flights, and 2 hotel rooms. The only goal is to sit outside and soak in heat and synthesize vitamin D. We looked at Vegas and Miami but they were too pricey and we don't really care about amenities (beyond a pool) or stuff to do.

Vegas hotel

We are going to Vegas to see a particular concert over the weekend. We might do some slots but don't plan on gambling much. We will go out to eat. We might go dancing. We will likely tack on some other shows. I don't enjoy Vegas-y drunken crowds. Where should we stay?

Where to vacation with jerk doggo within driving distance of the PNW?

I need to find a five day low-cost trip that needs to be driving distance (6-10 hours okay) of Seattle. However, my dog is a jerk that hates all people. I can keep him muzzled when around people, but we need a cabin or someplace that will let us be separate from humans and accept dogs. [more inside]

What actually happens when a plane crashes?

When an airplane crashes, what logistically happens for the next of kin? How are they informed? How are they kept up-to-date? I'm interested in any anecdotal information or articles/books that explain and detail what it is actually like for those left waiting and wondering what has happened.

Which SteriPen should I get for my trip to Cote d'Ivoire?

Going to be in Cote d'Ivoire for a few months for public health work. Will primarily be in Abidjan and am not too concerned about water there, but work will entail some fieldwork where I will probably leave Abidjan and go to less developed areas. I've read up on my water sanitation options, and I think I'd like to go with a SteriPen, as I do think I need a purifier, and a filter. 1. Which steripen to get? 2. Which filter to get to go with it? More details below. [more inside]
