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 Where is the closest free beach where free camping is permitted to Georgia, the country?
Yeah sorry Mark I tried to make it clear that I wanted both in some of the early comments and also in the bounty notes.

Are you sure that camping free of charge is possible at Neptun and Costineşti? The former is now totally overdeveloped and the latter is now totally overrun - but maybe there are parts at the furthest ends of these beaches. None of your links seem to say anything about it though. I know it's possible at 2 Mai and Vama Veche though at the latter it's theoretically not allowed it turns out you can't camp at all in the centre, then further down you must pay and supposedly receive some security and/or amenities, and further still the police will warn you it might not be secure but it's free.

comment Transport Melbourne to Byron bay via Gold Coast Airport
I've just done a quick Google search which reveals there are indeed shuttle services from the Gold Coast airport to Byron Bay. But the Gold Coast is a huge area. Would a shuttle from the airport be OK? Otherwise I know at least and probably both of Greyhound and Premier bus/coach companies will also service that route from town centre to town centre. The train station in Byron Bay has been unused for some time.

"Best" is a word that can mean many things. Cheapest? Fastest? Most reliable? I might say the best way is in a Ferarri convertible driven by a blonde in a swimsuit (-; But if this is not your idea of best then please add your requirements to the question to make it objective. Be aware that subjective questions do risk being closed.

Are we using 3-letter tags for currency codes as well as airport codes now? CAD is the IATA airport code for Wexford County Airport in Cadillac, Michigan, United States ...

comment Seeing Penguins “in the wild” in Sydney
I found some more information about a tiny colony near Sydney but I bet tourists won't be able to access them and the site doesn't mention it.
