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 Travel from Nassau (Bahamas) airport to Paradise Island with an Infant
Would this be from "Lynden Pindling International Airport, NAS? Seems the most likely though there are several airports in the Bahamas.

comment Avoiding human trafficking when getting a massage in Japan
There could be a clue / code that local people know. For instance in South Korea there is something about the number and/or rotation of red/white striped barber poles which indicates that the place provides sex services. And no I'm not making this up!

comment Travelling from Germany to Iran
@iHaveacomputer: You shouldn't assume that two seemingly opposed requirements have a direct inverse relationship such that comfort decreases at a constant rate as cost increases. Questions of this nature are seeking what is called a "sweet spot". There is a problem though, in that such questions are always subjective because we don't know how much weight the asker gives to each requirement. But this should only lead to multiple good answers offering different "tradeoffs". This principle can be applied to many questions here - not just this one (-:

@Gigili: Further it seems that you mention the duration of your trip in a comment somewhere rather than in your question. If this is a defining requirement of your question you really must include it.

comment Travelling from Germany to Iran
@Gigili: Are you asking purely about finding the cheap/comfortable sweet spot? Or do you also care about travel time? I ask because some of the answers are focussing on the latter and I'd like to decide if they are off topic or if you should add more requirements to your question.
