comment How to register while wild camping in the Balkans?
You've got like 5 questions in this one post. Could you rephrase to show what your actual question is, and possible split off the other questions into separate posts? Otherwise I worry it'll garner more close votes (I see it already has one)

No worries, that's why I pointed out the faq for you :) You've come to the right place for travel questions, although you may also consider The Great Outdoors for camping-type questions.

comment Biking tour in Russia
Welcome to the site. As per the faq, we usually try for one question per post, and to not have ones that can be subjectively answered (eg "is it reasonable?"). Could you please edit your post and ask new questions if need be - so that you have just one question per post. Otherwise it's going to risk being closed, which would be a shame on an interesting question like this!

comment Is it possible to legally visit uninhabited islands in the Pacific for a couple of days/weeks like Robinson Crusoe
do you have to be the ONLY person on the island, or if there are some budget backpackers on the other side of it, is that ok?
