comment What sort of computer / electronic device would you take on a backpack trip around Europe to allow you to keep in touch?
I'm currently using a 256GB SSD drive via a USB3 interface to boot into Linux or a Windows Server 2012R2. While I don't see to many PC with USB3 around, most recent hostels had PCs with 64bit and boot from USB. Even using USB2 it feels faster than using a hard drive and the SSD is very light. Some hostel owner or staff look a bit funny but I always explain to them that I need something more secure and it doesn't change anything on their PC. I don't have a regular job, but sometimes spend hour on the PC. I use Hyper-V with several VMs and can VPN into my home network to do additional work.

comment Roughly how long does the Pamir Highway take to do?
It's on the M41 highway a few hours north of Khorog. It's the Tajik site of the Panj river, the green in the back is an Afghan village on the other side of the river. I have more photos at flickr.com/photos/tweenet/sets/72157647531664434

@MarkMayo - Considering the accepted answer doesn't answer the question and says you can't do the highway by yourself , I had to write something. This was a fantastic trip and you should go back

comment Are there actually any hostels in Macau?
Not sure, that's not normal in Macau. And the official hostels in China all have a single price for everybody. It seems the Macau hostels are meant for the local youth.

All my Colombian entry stamps have a hand-written number below DIAS. Do you have that number? It always counts from the latest entry.

comment Are there any drive-in restaurants in Central Europe?
I don't think even the Germans don't have a law to distinguish a drive-in from a drive-thru, but there is a big different. In a drive-through you order in your car, drive around the corner and receive your food in your car usually in a (take-away)bag, then you drive off and eat later, or maybe eat in their parking lot. At a drive-in, you drive onto a parking space on the facility, they come to you to take your order and the food is served to you on a tray which is affixed to your car door. You eat the food while in Do you still these types of restaurants exist in Europe?
