comment Flights - Direct in one direction, but with at least 1 stopover on the other?
If you read the linked question that you cite, top answer specifically addresses answers to 2 and 3. Sometimes it's cheaper, sometimes it's not.

comment In what countries are tea towels available as souvenirs?
Isn't this like....most countries? Seems massively broad, and you're basically asking for a list. And a quick google search for japanese tea towel souvenir certainly shows that they do exist for Japan as well.

comment Can I legally drive a motorcycle in California with a New Zealand motorcycle license?
A friend had a UK motorcycle license of sorts, it changes when you come to Aus. Similarly with NZ licenses - weirdly if you convert a restricted license in Aus it comes out as a full one. People are using this as a loophole to avoid sitting the final NZ driving test(!).
