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 When visiting urban areas in Australia, do I need to be worried about deadly insects / animals?
Besides redbacks, in the Sydney area at least you have to worry about funnelweb spiders which also like urban habitats. But really the risk of drowning at our beaches is what foreign travellers should be wary of.

My dad is also anosmic. Never met another person with the condition but Dr Karl says it's common in surfers.

comment What do you do when you're on-the-road and you cannot shower?
This happened to me on Ometepe in Nicaragua. Every place I stayed over a period of some days in sweaty tropical heat had ran out of water, had a broken shower, or some similar issue. My solution was to let the skank build up until I got back to the mainland and then have the world's longest shower.

comment Budget for traveling in Eastern Europe?
The pretty much standard price for a dorm bed in Eastern Europe is €10 +/- €1. In Greece expect to pay at least twice as much, and hostels are very hard to find but exist in at least Thessaloniki.

comment To which country in Europe should I travel to if I want to see a lot of lighthouses?
I immediately think of Scotland. At least for old interesting lighthouses in large numbers and amazing locations.
