Looking for a place with snow in the near future close to the Gulf Coast (TX) to take toddlers for their first snow experience!

Travel
I live in Houston, TX and I would love to take my toddlers to experience snow anytime between now and early next year. Preferably somewhere we can drive to, dont mind a long drive. I currently work remotely so if its a place with decent tmobile coverage or good solid speed internet that would be a great added bonus. I am thinking Colorado may be the closest place but is there anything closer than that with a good amount of snow and maybe some sort of cabin? Thanks for any ideas! submitted by /u/AntIis [link] [comments]
Domestic flight without valid ID – help!

Domestic flight without valid ID – help!

Travel
On an overnight business trip and somehow between checking into my hotel room and running out to grab takeout, I lost my driver's license. I'm going to try and retrace my steps in the morning but I have no idea where it could be - I think it probably fell out of my pocket somewhere. I have to get on a flight to go back home tomorrow without proper ID. What I do have: An expired passport (very expired, but you can still see all the details) A bunch of credit/debit cards Insurance card Electronic color copy of my current passport Electronic copy of my temporary license (just requested from my DMV) Ironically I have my current passport on me, but the whole reason I'm here is for a visa application appointment, so I have to turn that in with my visa application tomorrow befo...
Vehicle Adventure Holiday Suggestions

Vehicle Adventure Holiday Suggestions

Travel
Hey everyone, I am not sure if I worded this correctly, however I am after any suggestions for a country or trip that has a unique/enjoyable form of transport at the heart of it. Last year a friend and I did a self-guided loop of Sri Lanka in a hired tuk-tuk, and the freedom and enjoyment provided by having our own local form of transport is something I'd like to recreate when (if) we can get out and travel again. Currently other options that come to mind are motorbikes in Vietnam, campervans in NZ South Island, and overlanding in various places. Interested to see what you all have experienced or have on your bucket lists! submitted by /u/DeskFireBrigade [link] [comments]
PCR tests required for my flight?

PCR tests required for my flight?

Travel
I am going from America to Lima. Now i heard both PCR and antigen are acceptable, but i also heard of people not being able to board because only having antigen for some reason. The problem that scares me with PCR test is you are told between 2-5 days the results(maybe even longer) and then you only have 72 hours from when you get the results to take the flight. How the hell is this possible? This seems like the most anxiety inducing thing. Anyways have any of you successfully taken the PCR for a flight? and any tips on doing it right? submitted by /u/dazomeone [link] [comments]
Want to travel by airplane but not old enough to rent a car once at destination

Want to travel by airplane but not old enough to rent a car once at destination

Travel
Hi- my friends and I are taking a senior trip to Florida at the start of next year and we really want to fly. We’ve tried looking into ways of getting a car but there’s no way that we know of. For most states you have to be 25 years old to rent. We have also looked into other options such as Uber but we all decided that would be too expensive. This means we would have to drive 24ish hours from where we live to Florida. It would be cool if we could fly and rent a car to cut down on travel time. Does anyone have any ideas on how we could possibly get a car? All responses are greatly appreciated. Thanks! submitted by /u/CookieGoat [link] [comments]
Help with passport

Help with passport

Travel
Hey everyone! I need to get a passport for the first time and was getting all of my documents together. My problem is that my dmv made a mistake and stated that my gender was male when I am a female on my drivers license. I am not transgender and have had an incredibly difficult time trying to get this fixed. When I go to apply for my passport and my gender doesn’t match up on my license as it does on my birth certificate, do you think that this will cause me any issues? submitted by /u/aaudreye [link] [comments]
Extending stay in Europe(USA Citizen), should i get travel insurance, if yes which one do you recommend?

Extending stay in Europe(USA Citizen), should i get travel insurance, if yes which one do you recommend?

Travel
Hi all I bought insurance with Travelex for 40$ for stay in UK, however i decided to extend the stay till january 25ish. Now travelex is asking for 130$... I was wondering is it worth getting the travel insurance as what it really offers is basically all but nothing much, as if you do this sport or this activity they don't cover, I might as well stay home and do nothing and this way they will cover because probability something happen will be 0.01%. For example some articles i found, looks like having health insurance for Europe is sort of pointless since you can receive free health care even as a foreigner? Article about medical care in europe Can anyone advise me on this whether i should get travel insurance for my extended stay and if yes then which companies you would recommend me ...

Living Abroad- Mexico

Hi Friends, My husband and I are planning on moving out of our SF apartment and living/working abroad in San Miguel De Allende. We love Mexico and I speak Spanish so we are totally flexible with any location. We have plans to travel to Oaxaca later in the trip (getting married there!) Does anyone have any other recommendations on Magical Cities they recommend or places where we could stay for about a month? Thanks! submitted by /u/bgarciamares [link] [comments]
