comment Update Facebook and/or Twitter via SMS while travelling
IMO it's not quite about Web Applications - because there's still that added twist of how to get access to the web when travelling - availability of SMS, WiFi and internet coffee shops can vary widely from country to country...

comment Self-service options in Amsterdam
@RobertAtkins - are you sure? I just checked out amsterdam.citymundo.com, and it appears to be current - the reviews page has recently added items. The company is also listed on the official Amsterdam Tourism site, iamsterdam.com/en/placestogo/amsterdam-citymundo/…

comment Cheapest trip from Canada to anywhere for visa purposes
There's a regular city bus that goes from Windsor, Canada, to Detroit - the Tunnel Bus, and costs a whopping $4.50CDN, but it's not a ticket you can buy in advance, so likely not useful for your purpose. But the Windsor/Detroit crossing might also be worth a look to see if there's other transit you can prepay there to act as an 'exit guarantee'.

comment What truly cross-continental train trips still exist?
The Amtrak Sunset Limited from LA to New Orleans is perhaps the closest to cross-continent, in that it at least goes from the Pacific coast to Gulf Of Mexico, which is really just an extension of the Atlantic anyhow :) FWIW, there are some other passenger trains in the US, but they are mostly suburban/commuter services - eg. METRA in Chicago, Long Island Railroad and Metro North in NYC, and a few others. Amtrak is the only long-distance provider, though.

comment Cross-country landmarks/tourist spots near I-40
In addition to Road Trip America, also suggest Roadside America which focuses more on quirky / Americana items. Lots o' fun stuff there!

comment How to travel between castles in the Loire valley?
Most of the castles aren't accessible by public transport at all, so it's either coach/tour, or car. (Or, if you want a more active vacation, bicycle! - though you'll only be able to catch about one chateau per day this way though, there's about 3 reachable from Tours, so you'd need to train-hop to different base towns. Car is your best bet otherwise.)

comment New York airports: JFK or Newark Liberty International?
+1 for the airport vs terminal issue. Seems Lufthansa is JFK T1, which is at least not the dreaded Delta terminal.

comment New York airports: JFK or Newark Liberty International?
One issue not mentioned below is the customs/immigration experience; any commenters know whether JFK vs Newark has shorter/faster lines for incoming international arrivals processing?
