If you missed fasting few days in the month of Ramadan, due to your menstrual period or due to traveling, you just need to keep Qadha fast for every missed day and there is no Kaffara of feeding sixty poor believers. Kaffara is obligatory on those who deliberately leave fasting not because of illness or menstrual period, or traveling.

No impact on you where ever you live but when you travel, you should take the end of the boarder of the city or town where you live to start counting the distance of your travel. If you live in a big city which has suburbs, you start counting from the end of suburbs.

If you reach there before noon,bayou can have the intention of fasting that day of arrival and your fast will be valid as far as you reached their before noon and you intend to stay there for ten or more days.

In Shi'i fiqh, it is ok for women to travel without a mahram.

In Sunni fiqh, there is some variety of opinion, so if any of you are following the rullings of Sunni schools of thought, you should discuss your plans with an expert or look into the different views.

If you go on your trip, have fun and be careful!

You have to perform your obligatory Prayers within its time in the best way that you can. If you can not stand up for Prayers, you can pray in sitting situation. You need to face the Qibla as much as you can.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

There is no issue to travel to Muslim or non-Muslim countries provided one knows that they would not fall into sins or do haram actions there. Yes, if going to a particular location would make the person think there is a very high chance of them doing haram then they should avoid travelling there. 
 

May Allah grant you success

Bismillah

Thank you for your question. With many of the issues in the sections on worship in Islamic law we do not necessarily understand the logic of the rulings as Islamic law is not derived that way (through independent rational speculation). It is derived from an examination of the scriptural sources according to methods that are discussed extensively in the science of the principles of jurisprudence. Sometimes, we can have an idea of the wisdom behind certain rulings, but in many cases, our actions are based on the purport of those sources.

This is one such case in which the logic is not known, but it could be rationally inferred that perhaps the wisdom behind it is that since the time of travel is earlier, and since God doesn't want the traveller to go through too much difficulty, they are required to break their fast, whereas if a person travels after zuhur the time till breaking fast is less and so it is not so difficult for them to complete it and therefore they are required to do so.

May you always be successful

Yes, we are allowed to perform recommended prayers while traveling in a bus or train etc. Being recommended prayers performed in moving, it will not be compulsory to face the Qibla during the move.

Obligatory Prayers require us to be steady and not moving, unless there is no way that we can stop the train or the bus etc and the time of the prayer can finish during the journey before we stop, then it will be allowed to perform the obligatory prayers while traveling, but we need to face the Qibla as far as we can.

1. Salatul Jum'a is not obligatory on the traveler.

2. Even if you are not a traveler, but do not know the place of Salatul Jum'a, you just pray Dhuhr prayer as soon as the time of it starts.

3. If Salatul Jum'a is far away from you, it will not be obligatory on you but to pray Dhuhr.

Wassalam.
