Ferry services have stopped. And I do not know if you are still interested in the look out for nearby airports but there is one at Madurai which operates flights to Colombo once or twice a week. http://cheapfaresindia.makemytrip.com/international/raw/index.html?l=exIndia&t=OW&i=IXM-CMB-D-27Jul2016&p=A-1&c=E&userID=90311469514968251&...

If you don't have a navigator in the car or a Smartphone where you can launch Google Maps, Waze, and a whole bunch of other possible software, then consider this: The clearest way to get to Lake Placid is from I-87, where you take an exit toward Lake Placid which would be NY-73 and stay on it until you hit downtown Lake Placid.

I plugged "Mexico, anywhere" to "China, anywhere" for a random Friday in August into Skyscanner, and it only throws up one-stop connections - no direct flights.

I concur that it might be possible. It is possible to upgrade your class: if you have platzkart, you may upgrade to kupe while on board. Therefore, they do know on board which seats are empty and which are available. So, you might be able to do that, seek out the "director of the train" (yeah that's a hilarious title). It might also be available ...

According to their website, in 2016 Salamis Cruise Lines operates an occasional roundtrip cruise from Limassol, Cyprus to Haifa, Israel and back. You would need to contact them to see exactly what happens if you decided not to get back on the ship (assuming you want to visit Israel for more than a day), and it's probably substantially more expensive than ...
