comment How to get from Antwerp to Breskens by bus (or other transport) but not train?
Anyway there exists a direct train from Antwerpen to Brugge, and from there the bus to Breskens. If you want to avoid the train, I wouldn't be surprised if a tram and three buses is the best you can do.

Amusingly, if I try to find "Antwerpen to Breskens, via Brugge" on 9292.nl, it takes that train to Vlissingen and the ferry to Breskens... then it goes to Brugge by bus, and then back to Breskens!

comment Best way to physically move monetary value around
@Relaxed: I don't mean that as a bitcoin fan (I'm not), just seems to me that a $450k gold bar more or less the opposite of what I think of when I read "convenience + ease of access". Where would you be able to sell it?

@Alex: why would a gold bar of all things be easier to access than bitcoins?

comment What disadvantages in not queueing early to board Ryanair flight?
Also, if you do get to keep your carry-on luggage, it still happens that there isn't enough space left for it in the overhead storage room in the cabin, and you have to keep it at your feet or so. Still helps to be first.

I've been to Bromo but I've only seen pictures of Ijen, it does seem very different.

comment Is a train reservation required or optional on ICE in the Netherlands and Germany?
There should be plenty of space in the train, and you have a lot of time in Utrecht, won't be a problem at all.

I'm not sure, I'm always in 1. klasse and don't have a good idea of how full the train is in 2. What time of day are you travelling? Commuters are an issue during rush hour only, mostly the train leaving Utrecht at 17:02.

Inside Schengen? The border is almost invisible.

comment How significant are advance purchase discounts on Dutch and Belgian railways?
I think that generally speaking the long term idea is to make Dutch trains resemble subways as much as possible, e.g. there is a plan to do away with scheduled times and just have Intercity trains roughly every 10 minutes on the busiest stretches. Things like seat reservations and advance purchase discounts are from another age.

"EU citizenship" doesn't really exist, and the answer may differ depending on whether your father is French or has the nationality of a different EU country.

comment What on earth has yet to be explored?
@Dirty-flow: I don't know if this question belongs here, but it's definitely not GIS. GIS is about working with geographical data on computers.
