comment Is there a good website to plan a trip via trains in Europe?
@RichardGadsden I know. A three day pass covering England and Scotland might be less than 200 pounds. It compares well to advance tickets and insanely well to last minute tickets

comment First time travelling alone, and on a connecting flight, I have a few questions
If I thought they were dupes, I would have voted to close. What they are is related. They make good starting points - there are probably dozens of questions on the matter of currency exchange (including whether to get cash or use plastic, where to get the cash, how to get the best price, how to carry it and much more) and arriving at the airport/gate/parkinglot early enough but not too early. Searching is your friend. Those two were easy for me to find and will doubtless lead to others even more useful.

@user568458 try travel.stackexchange.com/questions/10/… and travel.stackexchange.com/questions/25320/… and all the "related" questions each has listed on the right side when you read them. Also explore their tags for similar questions

These three questions should not be in a single question. (2) has been asked here before, as has (3), so you should probably remove those from your question

comment Will my B1/B2 visa allow me to enter the US?
these people you know who claim you won't be let in - did they give you some reason for believing the USA routinely issues visas to people and then doesn't let them in? That is a rather strange belief unless there is something those people know that you have not included in your question.

comment Will I need a converter for my USA laptop in Botswana?
@blackbird57 I mentioned the voltage so the OP would understand how I could possibly know for sure that this particular laptop doesn't need a transformer. This way the OP, and others who read this question later, will all have what they need to answer the "do I need a transformer" part themselves.

@blackbird57 that's why the first sentence of the answer ends "you do not need a transformer"

comment Will I need a converter for my USA laptop in Botswana?
Yes, I just chose a random one, but the fact is the universals generally don't cover all of Africa despite their name. So the OP may have to buy an adapter on site, as I mentioned.

comment Recommended VPN in China
@DavidZ I have a loved one there right now who is using a VPN we set up from here. It is not blocked. Many have said it depends on the city you are in so perhaps that is why your experience was different
