This does not really answer the question. If you have a different question, you can ask it by clicking Ask Question. You can also add a bounty to draw more attention to this question once you have enough reputation.

Removed your second half, as multiple questions should be separated, and it was also asking for recommended (See help center - these are not usually on topic)

comment Buenos Aires to Patagonia
Saying that, if you have specific questions about Patagonia, transport, El Calafate, Perito Morena glacier and so on, please do ask them as I'd be keen to share what I did and saw.

comment Buenos Aires to Patagonia
Welcome to the site. I recommend a read of the help center - asking for recommendations is generally considered off topic - as they're too subjective.

comment What is the duty-free allowance limit when purchasing electronics in Hong Kong?
I highly recommend you have a read of the help center. Asking multiple questions in one is generally frowned upon, and likely to get closed as too broad.

comment Am I legaly entitled to my share of the tips jar
Generally you need to clarify these things with your manager, there's no direct law, AFAIK about these things. But the customers are tipping for your service, so yeah, I'd be complaining.

comment Gatwick airport to London by Oyster card
Crud, I'd put that bit about buses in and then realised it was wrong, removed most of it and left the key sentence in. Sigh. Editing it out now.

comment Gatwick airport to London by Oyster card
@SztupY Thameslink? I just said take a train. I plugged it into national rail and it clearly showed just one change at London Bridge.

comment Time between multiple flights for transferring
Perhaps you could indicate which airports, what passport you're on, which airlines? It definitely makes a difference. Eg Christchurch Airport in NZ, both international/domestic are minutes from each other, while in Auckland you have to catch a bus or walk about 2/3 of a mile to the other terminal.
