My top question - Tactics to avoid getting harassed by corrupt police

My top answer - When I travel next, I want to reach the point on the earth that is exactly opposite my home, how can I discover where that is?

comment Covering Letter for Europe stay
Welcome! Which visa are you applying for? What citizenship do you have? The more detail you can include, and the clearer you can make your question (please edit it, don't answer this in comments), the more likely someone here can help you. It's quite hard to read at the moment...

Bizarre, same search and I'm getting the Unofficial link at the top, and the rai.ir doesn't even appear. Joy of custom google search results? Thanks! Now to investigate translation of it.

comment Where to stay in South Wales (UK)
Generally asking for recommendations is off-topic here which is why it was put on hold - it's also rather broad (see help center). Each person is different - some love the city, some want quiet at night, etc, even with kids. As a result we can't write an objective answer to the question unless the scope is narrowed quite a bit :/

Also sue - what's your citizenship? Very important when it comes to visas.

Unless it refers to FJ, the prefix of all ICAO airport codes in British Indian Ocean Territory (eg FJDG - Diego Garcia)
