Backpacking since Christmas Day, 1989. Hitchhiking since mid 2010.

I've just returned home after hitchhiking around Asia for the last 9.5 months.

comment How to take a cold shower
Flexing those worked out muscles in the shower also helps steel them against the cold water.

comment Is it typical to provide a lot of information for public transport systems in Japan?
Australia is very far from having "a metro system". Almost every bus, light rail, train, tram system is independent and even varies vehicle to vehicle. This is true also in Japan but in Japan the standards are very much higher. Newer vehicles and newer systems tend to have better, more detailed, clearer info.

comment Do Australian citizens still get visa-free entry for 360 days in Georgia (the country)?
Apparently Georgia is about to change its visa rules in September 2014 to a 90/180 system similar to the systems in use in the Schengen area and in Turkey. I don't think full details are available yet: agenda.ge/news/18614/eng

comment Where in the Balkans is free camping permitted?
"despite there being no camping there" - do you mean there was a sign saying "co camping" or just that nobody else was camping there? Or is it just EuroEnglish for there being no official campground there? (-:
