What should two older foodies from Pacific Northwest see/do in Vienna?

Gifts that say 'world traveller'

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]

How to make a Sri Lankan guest welcome?

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. What I know: he's male, a manager of an emergency department, so I assume middle class, Tamil and Hindu. What can we do to make his stay as comfortable as possible? [more inside]

Which is - objectively - the better side of the road to drive on?

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?

What events/festivals/gatherings/spectacles are worth experiencing?

I love to travel, I love diversity, I love celebrations, and I love spectacle. My mission in the coming years: to regularly combine these into a melange of awesome. I'm looking for events that are unusual and full of people. They're probably extremely reflective of local culture, or of a particular sub-culture. A few examples: [more inside]

Reverse Flight Bump

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]

Adult Fun In Downtown Orlando

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.

Safely eating in Korea and Japan with seafood allergies

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]
