These days you may also consider tossing a bluetooth tracker in your bags; when the bag gets in or out of range an alert will pop up on your phone. There are devices custom built for this, such as this one.

Many companies use a tag that you keep with your ticket, to prove you own the luggage. If this service is available, make sure to use it. If not, then some (Greyhound) provide a name ticket you can put your details on. Sure it doesn't prevent someone from taking it, but if anyone's suspicious it's easy to ask for ID and show it doesn't match the thief's ...

Step-Free Access Research Just for kicks I used tfl's journey planner, and selected the option no stairs or escalators. I could not use your planned date (10th December 2014) because you can only plan ahead one month (so it'll have to wait for tomorrow. Here is the link to the suggested route. Below is a screenshot: The no stairs or escalators is a fancy ...

Unfortunately, the online site doens't have all the features that a phone booking or in-person booking does. Perhaps one day. It's not however, a duplicate of their functionality. Most common bookings can indeed be done online, and the assumption is travellers likely have similar discounts, if any. You have two options: Book two separate transactions, ...

Valenca is right next to Morro, so it should not be a surprise that trip will be much cheaper. I'm convinced you'd be able to get local transport to Valenca through Feira, but it's likely to be cumbersome and time consuming. Typically, for out of the way destinations, local public transport might only be available a few times per day. As an alternative, ...

Tube, every time. (see below) Balham has escalators. http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tube/stop/940GZZLUBLM/balham-underground-station?lineId=northern Victoria has escalators: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tube/stop/940GZZLUVIC/victoria-underground-station/ All deep-level tube stations have lifts or escalators, except in cases of mechanical failure which are super-rare. ...

I found a website where the bus connection is shown. But obviously it isn't such a good route as the person stated it would be, so probably I will take a bus to Salvador and then a transfer via boat to Morro de Sao Paulo. Seems to be the fastest and cheapest alternative, though I didn't expect it to be...

No, your name in kana is not really required, it's just that the booking systems for both sites are 100% geared for Japanese people. But instead of making something up, just punch your name into Google Translate and let it do the work: James Smith → ジェームス·スミス. That said, I wouldn't bother booking at all, the buses are virtually never full. Just show ...

Pack for carry-on. If you're willing to live with having a day-pack in your lap or under your feet, you don't need to check luggage. You can (and arguably should) certainly do that with anything small and valuable. Remember, watching may not be enough. There was a case a few years ago where a team was packing a thief into a large piece of luggage, so he ...

According to Buses Fernández they run 8 buses a day from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales "todos los días del año" (ie every day): Incidentally Turismo Condor operate full day trips from Puerto Natales to Perito Moreno (via El Calafate) every day (but have a 4 person minimum).
