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 Is it practical to live in Stockholm's inner city while studying in Kista?
This is probably not even on-topic for the Immigration Stack Exchange proposal, but you might be interested in taking a look at it anyway.

comment Unlimited Greyhound or Amtrak trips in US/Canada?
Would this work better as two separate questions? Especially to stand the test of time bringing people here via Google etc?

comment Are some airline routings unbookable?
Did you try asking a travel agent to book this route for you? They have access to a lower-level booking system than most websites offer.

comment Which European cities have bike rental stations for tourists?
Yes we tried several times with a US friend's Visa card and my local Georgian mobile phone number, at two separate bike stations - the one at one end near the port and the one near the musical fountain and tourist information box on the Boulevard. Too bad because 75 tetri per 15 minutes is cheap enough to say walk all the way to the far end of the Boulevard and take a bike back again.

comment Which European cities have bike rental stations for tourists?
It's a bit tricky to work out. The stations claim to accept credit cards, which also requires a phone number, but we could never get this to work. Some stations seemed not to have control panels that just didn't work. At the tourist information we were told we needed to buy a special card for 20 GEL (about 10 EUR) but we thought that was too expensive for the short bit of riding we actually wanted to do. All the bikes did seem to be in very good condition though and we saw other people using them.

comment Are there ticket offices for Georgian Railways in Tbilisi?
@Giorgi: Mainly for people that don't have credit cards. (It was a question asked by another traveller in my hostel in Tbilisi.)
