comment How to take my belongings when moving to a new country?
Since it's about shipping your stuff, which travellers don't have to do on such a scale, but expats regularly have to do, it's better on the expats site. I've been travelling since 1989 to sixty countries and never tried to bring a desktop computer with me (-:

comment Secondhand/antique book shops in Lisbon
I have acquired more than my fair share of dictionaries on my travels too! I found Lisbon to be one of the easiest cities in Europe to find used book shops when I was there a good fourteen years ago just by randomly wandering around the central area pretty much. But the surprising thing for me was that even used books there were much more expensive than in most other countries.

comment Driving from UK to Turkey, is a French Schengen visa sufficient?
I've crossed the border from Turkey to Bulgaria with Turks (who spoke both languages) and the guards on the Bulgarian side gave them a lot of grief. I don't know how normal this is.

This technique works great for skidmarks but doesn't have much effect on "soaked with sweat".

comment What to do without underwear on a 4 day trip?
@phoog: That depends on how damp they are, what the weather conditions are, what activity will be undertaken, how vigorous and long lasting that activity will be, and what material they are made from. If you're unlucky the result can be very uncomfortable chafing, which I've experienced many times as an international hitchhiker. The moral is if you forget to take enough pairs of undies, don't also forget to take talcum powder!

Another way to dry something in a hurry is to put it between two or more dry layers of towel and press firmly. This won't get the last bit so do it after washing and wringing but before leaving it for the heater or aircon. If you find the first time that despite your best efforts it does not dry enough then next day try the drying part without the washing part. (Oh and four days is nothing you big baby!)
