"The Australian mainland is the largest landmass with its antipodes entirely in ocean." :(

comment Can you be detained for not paying for your hotel in Pretoria?
Africa is a very big place so I'd suggest adding exactly what country you're interested in, but in general yes, you can be detained for not paying your hotel bill. This is a worldwide thing.

comment What is a good way how to get list of sights for a road trip (e.g. for a roadtrip from Chicago to Niagara falls?)
Seconding guidebooks and regional tourism sites. The other option I use are TripAdvisor's regional pages, for example going through Indiana you can look up cities you'll pass by. These region and city-based pages can include attractions quite some distance away from the actual CBD, so explore widely. :)

@choster It doesn't mean it's automatic. My first thought was that it'd flag up the departure from state, and then either an operator would determine an appropriate time to shut off the car or the next time the car stops it won't restart.

For the convenience of US Senators.

comment Are trains stopping between stations to let passengers board/alight just a Canadian thing?
Flag stops definitely exist in both Australia and the UK as well, and probably elsewhere.

comment With a Lille Pass Pass smart ticket, what happens if the wrong ticket type is selected by the validator?
I'm going to go out on a limb and say the only person that can answer that question is the Lille transport customer service, so you definitely check with them while still there, and then report back as an answer to your own question. As for the bad touch screens, you're inevitably screwed there. :(

comment Do I not need to supply passport details when booking through websites?
@choster Yeah, I do - we're only flying with a single airline and Expedia's email/booking page has a clear Expedia booking number (which I've used successfully) and a separate airline booking number (which I haven't).

The flight is in June, and we only booked about a fortnight ago.

I did try the airline page, as that seemed the most logical place, but the booking reference didn't call up any flight. Thanks for the info though.
