I think you should look for the disabled metro map, which is easily to find on google. I would explain more but I think the image says pretty much all. You will have to zoom to read which stations have "annoying stairs" and stations with elevator. About the steps that separate the ticket barriers and the platform, you can't really know, but I highly ...

Which Stations Are Accessible? TMB says that all the Metro network is wheelchair accessible, except for a few stations (15 out of 156). These tend to be the older/non-recently-refurbished stations. The Barcelona Metro map lists them: This website lists all the stations with lifts. Locating Lifts TMB also says that you can locate accessible stations ...

My answer might be treated as humorous but like a half-full half-empty glass there is a grain of seriousness. Rule #1: If you have money then spend it wisely. Of course if you don't have any funds it's a bit more difficult to travel but if you throw money away that doesn't help either. A very good example of what should be avoided (I do apologise to ...

From what I've been able to locate in Czech Republic, the closest model to Ryanair's standards is the "March Ypsilon Small": CABIN APPROVED Small 55 X 38 X 20 cm / 2.6 kg / 44 L At the time of the posting, the price of this piece of hand luggage was 90EUR.

Selling something I live in Indonesia so I get it a lot. When they come at me I banter with them. I tell them (the taxi drivers) to find the taxi "over there". I tell them "besok" (tomorrow). Until they get confused and give up in disgust because their friends are laughing at them. My wife hates it but I have fun with them (nicely, with a smile). It avoids ...

I haven't carried silver film for a decade but back when I did the best solution I found was some clear plastic tubes meant for making film easy to hand inspect without having to open anything. Below is a picture of one such tube: The tube can hold 5 rolls but I only put 4 so one can see the ends of the rolls without taking a cap off.

Kodak (people more familiar with film than most) have this handy page which they last updated in 2003(!) on film and x-ray machines: X-ray equipment used to inspect carry-on baggage uses a very low level of x-radiation that will not cause noticeable damage to most films. Of course, the obvious: Note: X rays from airport scanners don't affect ...

Not sure this is so much a travel question as a meteorology\astronomy one, but I'll bite :-) I know more of the meteorological side than the astronomical. I've learned little bits and pieces at university and through websites, but honestly, I'm not anywhere near an astronomy expert. So I'll just tell you what I've learned and put together from the ...

Incredibly, rather than my usual long philosophical discussion, I have exactly the answer for you: http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk sign up for the alerts: http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk/alerts It's probably the best aurora watch/planning service. But find the competitors using google and entering "aurora watch". Hope it helps.

I have been on Iceland September/October 2015, based in Reykjavic and doing tours of the Golden Circle and the south coast (basically what you plan to do in two days done in one day.) Any place the coach tours stop has toilets, often more than one group. That is one near to the sight and one at the restaurant for the area. Even with the big numbers of ...

Restrooms appear with adequate frequency along the way. A few years ago, I drove around the whole island. While I was told the ring road was around 1400km, my car clocked in 3400km when I returned to to the rental place, since I kept taking detours and looping around to see the sights. Sometimes the sights were so beatuful that I decided not to stop the ...

My girlfriend and I did this drive about 3 years ago, and we went all the way through Vik and up to EgilsstaĆ°ir. We never struggled to find petrol stations, small coffee shops and guesthouses where we could stop on the drive. The longest distance we had to go was a couple of hours (say 3-4 at worst). From our experience, you should really not worry about ...

The leave no trace principles provide excellent guidelines for doing your business in the wild. As the name suggests, the general memento is leave no trace. In other words, whatever you carry in you carry out of where you are. This applies to human waste too. If you have to urinate or defecate, make sure you do so at least 100m away from water sources, ...

There are obviously a lot of gas stations along this road too, some of which have restrooms you can pay a little to use. See hours on the linked page as well. These are frequently treated as public facilities, rather than for paying customers only. You can also pay a little at hostels / guesthouses along the way to use their facilities.

I've provided some answers in your other question, so here I'll try to explain the road-specific risks. If you're going to use a rental car in Russia, you probably need this sign to be put on the car: This is a warning sign for telling other drivers that there is a novice driver in the car. I suggest you use this sign because the Russian driving style ...
