comment Visa requirements for Indian Nationals transiting through Schengen to the UK, by train/ferry?
Correct. Colleagues of mine in London had UK Work Visas but certainly due to their passports were required to get Schengen visas as well (South African, Indian etc)

Wiki claims that "The term ZIP code was originally registered as a servicemark (a type of trademark) by the U.S. Postal Service, but its registration has since expired." :/

Yup, paddleboarding and hiking aren't as easy in the winter, what with the frozen lakes and all ;) I'll update the question though.

comment Is it possible to drive to Hawaii?
so essentially, you're asking how to ship your car to Hawaii, or to travel by ferry or similar with your car to Hawaii?

comment Best town to live and work over the Internet in Sicily / Italy
@hippietrail's right - it's subjective. "Which city would you choose?" is always going to be subjective. What constitutes friendly people? You may be 29, but do you want 29 year olds, or do you want younger people? Do you like sand or stone beaches, swimming or sunbathing beaches? Anyway, it's certainly something that will do well on the immigration beta, and hopefully it starts up soon! :)

Could you please add detail to this about WHY you recommend it etc, rather than just giving a link.
