comment Traveling from Anaklia Georgia to Greece?
When I was last in Greece just over six months ago all international trains had been stopped as part of the austerity measures. National trains were still running and international buses were running. It would be best to check if international rail service has been reinstated.

comment Traveling from Anaklia Georgia to Greece?
Even though Anaklia is close to Batumi as the crow flies, it isn't so close as the car drives because there is a national park between the two without a road going through. I'm in Batumi now and was in Anaklia less than a week ago. You would have to go up to Zugdidi, which surely has an airport, then back down the other way to Batumi. It's actually still not far since Georgia is a small country, and Batumi surely has a much better connected airport than Zugdidi does.

comment Traveling from Anaklia Georgia to Greece?
Actually the Lonely Planet for Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan is pretty poor by their usual standards. Anaklia is not in there at all. I believe a new edition will soon be out but I would be surprised if Anaklia is in it either. They're building a resort there but I just came from there and it's not ready for anyone other people who like to see quirky places nobody goes to (-:

comment What is the fastest theoretical route for the London “Tube Challenge”?
Do you have to travel using the tube? When you say "given you can also travel overground", does that mean overground trains? Foot? Or Porsche?

revised Resources to find overseas volunteer opportunities with technical skills?
copyedit; describe the links rather than just plonking them in raw; the first site had a more specific link for volunteer spots

"here" and "this" in links is bad UX

Why shouldn't we use the word 'here' in a textlink (applies also to "this")
