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

For the first time I managed to save enough travel funds in less than six months in Australia.

I've been hitchhiking around Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, and now Cambodia, and will continue hitchhiking around Asia for the next nine or ten months.

comment Is my social security number from a previous temporary work visa still valid?
If the SSN is related to validity of travel documents then it's related to travel. If it's not then asking whether it is is still on topic I say.

comment Claustrophobic - travelling for the first time long RSA to USA
I'm removing the USA and South Africa tags, they seem quite tangential to the actual problem of claustrophobia sufferers on aircraft.

I'm not sure what Going of James bond mode could mean so I couldn't edit it into something I thought makes sense. Want to have a try yourself? (-:

comment Can you search for a job when using a tourist visa (B-2) in the US
So they tell you how long you can stay when you arrive or when you get the visa? How does this affect booking your return ticket?

comment Is it wise to pretend to be Christian to safely travel through the US?
Yes it does sound a bit ridiculous, but if you have travelled outside the tourist zones in the US you might find it less surprising that somebody would find the need to ask a ridiculous sounding question like this.

It's true I don't have any sources to cite. So there's definitely room for another answer to back up what I've said with the actual facts. It might even be worth putting a bounty on the question to encourage somebody dig up some references.

comment Is there a museum in South Korea about defectors and refugees who escaped North Korea?
Hmm I'm not sure. How did you come to be pretty sure? Maybe this is a problem worth discussing on meta?

comment Getting from Mexico City airport to downtown easily and safely
In my experience Mexico City is a place where you can try to look confident or tough and it will discourage people from messing with you. In other places this will attract more dodgy attention. Still I knew a large muscly American guy who got pickpocketed or robbed on the Mexico City subway.
