Suggest we make this a community wiki answer, and people can add links for each country that they find?

comment Where can I find archived traffic information for Swedish trains?
@ptzon - welcome to Travel.SE. We do recommend you read our faq before posting. One thing we focus on in particular (and on all SE sites) is: "Be careful, because the community frowns on overt self-promotion and tends to vote it down and flag it as spam. Post good, relevant answers, and if some (but not all) happen to be about your product or website, so be it...". It's already been flagged, and your answer doesn't seem to add much aside from self promotion. I'd consider rewording it to be more useful to avoid further downvotes.

comment Cheap Airfare to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from California
Can you reword? Currently our faq states not to ask questions about " cheapest [things, places] in [country, town, ...] ". Perhaps just asking about the airlines to Santo Domingo instead...

Yeah, that's why I just linked. Otherwise I'd have marked it as a duplicate ;)

Hi and welcome to Travel.Se. Great question, but I believe this has been asked before. I'll add this as a duplicate. Enjoy it, it's a great country, even with little Spanish skills you'll find it fine to get around.

comment Passo Giau parking fee
Hi Nathan, Welcome to Travel.Se. We appreciate you answering, but could you give detail? Is there a parking lot? Any area? Or is the entire place free? Etc. Your post was flagged as a low-quality answer for length and content, so if you could flesh it out a bit with some detail, that'd be great. Welcome to the site!

comment Is there a site that gives travelling opportunities in Europe if you don't care about the destination or the date?
I don't really get it. Do you want notifications of flight sales? Or trains/buses?
