With eSIMs, how does calling home internationally work at all?

I'm looking into a prepaid phone+data SIM plan for my Uncle who is visiting Canada. This is the first I've heard of eSIM apps on Android and iPhone. Are eSIMs worth using? Moreover, are they a dealbreaker if my elderly uncle might need to make calls back home internationally, in case of a rare personal exigency? [more inside]

Passenger door won't open!

I have a 2019 Ford Ecosport and suddenly out of nowhere, the driver-side passenger door will not open. It will unlatch, and I can force it open an inch or so, but it's behaving like the car was in an accident, and it was not. The other doors are all fine. Window rolls up and down fine. This happened after it was sitting in a public parking lot for 2 hours. Careful visual inspection shows nothing awry. I suppose I could get in the back seat and apply a ton of force by pushing with my legs but I'm leery of breaking it (more). Any ideas or sharing of experiences with this issue much appreciated!

August a good month to travel to Netherlands or Belgium?

I'm looking to travel to the Netherlands and Belgium in (late) August. Am I going to have any issues with most of the country being on holiday at that time? I don't know when the main summer holiday period is in those countries (though I've heard it's July for Belgium at least).

Charming seaside towns in Northern Spain with a train station?

My husband and I are thinking of renting a place in Northern Spain for a month next summer -- and we love trains! We'd love to be in a charming, walkable village, ideally close to the sea, which also has a transit train stop so that we can get to Barcelona/farther-flung locations fairly easily without having to drive ourselves/use the bus system. Which towns do you recommend?

Reno, baby

What's fun to do and where's fun to stay in Reno? We are a middle aged mom and young adult child; queers, nerds, enjoy history, fun facts, stuff that we won't see at home.

Road Trip Tampa to NYC - 5 days in June (difficulty: no major cities)

Please give me your suggestions of places to stop and spend anywhere between 2-6 hours, places to spend the night. We're looking for awesome nature, hiking with a view, picturesque areas. Cute unique towns are good too. No beaches unless there's unique nature stuff to explore. Happy to venture away from I95 and explore more inland than along the coast even if the drive takes longer. So if you have favorite places anywhere along the way, please suggest them. [more inside]

On The Road and Need Trolley Bag Wheel Repair

I'm in Bangkok traveling and have noticed a wheel on my trusty 15 y/o North Face 35l roller is damaged. I don't have a Thai phone number so can't buy replacement wheels on Lazada, I can buy these ones on US Amazon and get them shipped from China, or maybe I can fill the gap with a strong glue - is that worth a shot?

Help a family see the Northern Lights tmrw eve (pdx area)

Hi pals, my family and I (6 adults) would like to go see the Northern Lights (or have a good shot at it) tomorrow evening somewhere 1-2 hours in pretty much any direction from Portland, Oregon. We would need it to be accessible by car, as a couple folks in our party aren't able to hike. Where would you go for this, PNW explorers? Thank you!

Maritimes cruise minus brochures and gift shops?

Over an extended Memorial Day vacation, we're cruising up the eastern seaboard through Canada. The cruise "excursions" are yawn-worthy or cheesy, so we're rolling our own. Help us figure out the best places to BE for our particular combination of dates and stops. Snowflakey details inside. [more inside]

Noise cancel culture me

I used to travel very frequently, but then I changed careers and there was that whole pandemic thing, so I'm going on a proper trip for the first time since 2020, and I want to make the experience as non-awful as possible. My beloved Sennheiser noise-canceling headset has seen better days, plus my devices now don't have headphone receptacles. I'm seeking suggestions for what's good for travel noise canceling in the modern era. Snowflakes within. [more inside]
