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 eight or nine months.

comment Do you need to submit an itinerary to get a Chinese visa? And do you have to stick to it?
That's interesting. I had a Catalan friend a few years ago who told me he travelled freely in the Tibetan areas which were not part of the "official Tibet" specifically to avoid having to obtain a special permit. Should I ask a question specifically about that?

comment Japan's crumbling temples and shrines — How can I find them?
@jake9115: Are you only interested in older/traditional religious ruins? Japan seems to have a good few ruined castles and lots of abandoned buildings from the 20th century. Are those within the scope of what you're looking for?

comment Do I need to apply for two separate visas for Australia and New Zealand?
But Australia and New Zealand are only 1,300km apart - are you sure they're different countries?

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
@AndrewGrimm: There's plenty of females using hostels in Georgia. I'd say close to 50% actually.

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
I've never come across this before and I've stayed and worked in lots of hostels, including in Tbilisi. What you do see however is higher prices for smaller dorms and lower prices for larger dorms. If the women-only dorm had fewer beds in it then that would naturally lead to a higher price. Room sizes are dictated by the building you have and it's far more common for women to want to avoid mixed dorms than it is for men though I have had a couple of men specify they only want a single-sex dorm.
