I often do the exact same thing, the best solution I've found is Google Flights You can search destination by continent such as Europe or North America. Put in your dates, Friday departure and Sunday Return. Then under the Times drop-down filter, change the sliders for an appropriate time, like 6pm outbound and whatever time for inbound. This will then ...

There is a new iPhone and iPad app that calculates tolls for all road, tunnels and bridges across the US and Canada. It's called Tolls Calculator USA & Canada and you can download it for free in iTunes.

Have you tried Adioso? It is the most flexible search engine I have seen lately. First you choose the departing airport, then the destination, which is very flexible. It can be from a specific city or airport to a state, a region, continent or even anywhere. Then for the date, you can choose a specific date, an entire month, or a date range. You can also ...

Yes, kayak can do this, to some extent. It works well if you have say, a top few destinations you can select from, but not 'anywhere'. It's slightly limited in that you can only do 4 source or destination airports at once, but it's pretty decent. I quite often look for trans-Tasman flights this way. So for example, say I want a one-way flight from NZ to ...

There are a few coworking spaces for rent on Sharedesk for around 20EUR for the whole day. It may be possible to work at a cafe or the airport, but these spaces are more reliable in terms of comfort for getting work done and internet connection as well.

(Note: I am not connected to this company either as a client or employee, I simply found them via Google) It appears that Regus has some space available in Brussels for rent by the hour. There were several listed as Day Offices, Fully Equipped. Most were listed at either ~15 Euro or ~25 Euro.

http://www.edreams.com/offers/flights/airline/ has some user reviews of airlines, but also check-in and baggage information for the major companies. Another site with such information is SeatGuru: http://www.seatguru.com/browseairlines/browseairlines.php http://www.airline-baggage-fees.com has useful information, but only for baggages. The most reliable ...

Actually TurkishAirlines started a similar program this year; What if you could celebrate the New Year twice? https://www.facebook.com/TurkishAirlinesCDN/posts/610252629081383 https://apps.facebook.com/doublenewyear/ However It's too late for this year but you could give it a shot for next Christmas! ;)

This asks for a personal opinion, really, which is not ideal, here. But, something can be said about your planned destinations anyway. If you have two weeks, it's enough to get a good idea about Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Krabi. I'm personally not a big fan of the Thai beaches, but that's personal. Many people love it. More importantly, Chiang Mai, Bangkok ...

A fairly simple way (unless I'm misunderstanding the question) to get three celebrations would be to go to Cameron Corner in Australia, on the border of New South Wales, South Australia, and Queensland: https://maps.google.com.au/maps?ll=-28.99948,141.000102&spn=0.009421,0.014269&t=m&z=17 You would have your first midnight in NSW (in Australian ...

Personally since you have limited time, I would blow off Bangkok all together and add those days to your Chiang Mai and Krabi stops. While Bangkok is different than say Frankfurt, it is still another big city like every other big city. Chiang Mai is also a fairly big city, but has a small town feel to it when you are in the historical center. And armed ...

A quick google search indicates there was an offer of doing this by private jet from Sydney Australia (not Nova Scotia) to Los Angeles California, if one happens to have 130,000 quids (sic) burning a hole in one's pocket. The timing is rather tight for commercial flights to be successful from the other suggestions, and usually flights don't take off after ...

Visit the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station, and walk around the South Pole in 24 hours such that the South Pole is always between you and the sun. Now, Amundsen-Scott normally operates under New Zealand Daylight Saving Time (Time in Antarctica). However, for the purpose of New Year celebrations, use Solar time instead. As you move around he pole in the ...

I believe there was a visit to the North Pole via icebreaker a few years ago. Don't think it was available over New Year though. But if available standing near to the pole it would be trivial to walk round and catch every time zone. Just make sure your partying doesn't involve large quantities of alcohol. 2 minutes on google found this ...

The most realistic option might be visiting the village of Tripartito, right where Bolivia, Chile and Peru meet. The three countries are in different timezones in the southern summer (when Chile observes DST but Bolivia doesn't), and at Google Maps it looks like there are roads crossing the borders right at the triple point, so you can simply leave one ...

There are four ways you could celebrate New Year's multiple times, but the TL;DR is that no, there's no practical way to celebrate New Year's more than twice... although there are a few theoretical possibilities if you're willing to spend a lot of money on this! The best way is to cross the International Date Line, so you get an entire day or more to ...
