comment How to visit Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and Stanley Park from Vancouver Airport?
@Love: note that this is really a lot to do in a 10 hour layover - you want to be back at the airport 2 hours early to be safe, and I'd say that 8 hours is not enough to do all of the above (especially walking around Stanley Park) and still have time to eat. Better pay attention to the clock and have a safety margin for unexpected problems - when I visited Stanley Park and wanted to go back, I found that all buses were cancelled due to the Canada Day parade.

comment Places worth visiting by train from Munich to Berlin
Is your total time in Germany 7 days, or do you have 7 days for the trip, i.e. excluding time spent in Munich and Berlin?

comment European countries “shut down” in August?
@unit3000-21: I'm not sure about how "closed down" it gets, but at least you won't have as severe traffic jams since summer holidays are different between the Cantons (same as in Germany).

comment European countries “shut down” in August?
It's absolutely not true that such things don't happen in northern Europe. From what I've heard, Sweden and Finland are very similar in this regard.

comment Do I need a towel in saunas in Germany?
@Alex: maybe there is a misunderstanding, or people just politely ignored your faux pas. The rule is often posted as "no sweat on the wood". If you sit on the bottom bench and put your feet on the floor, that would be fine. But if you sit higher and put your feet on the lower benches, there should be a towel underneath.

comment Reliability of prepaids for foreign calls such as Lebara, Ortel… what to take into account?
I think "Netz belegt" means "network overloaded", not "recipient already talking".

comment What is the shortest layover in Istanbul that would let me visit The Blue Mosque?
@Kate Gregory: The Hagia Sophia is currently a museum, not an active mosque. It is closed on Mondays.

If the Blue Mosque is closed due to prayers, the Hagia Sophia is right next to it. If that is closed as well (happened to me), the Topkapi palace is in 10 minutes' walking distance. Both these alternatives are IMO worth seeing as much as the Mosque.
