@MarkMayo, we need more choices for close reasons. 'Unclear' is not perfect, but a close enough match for 'silly' :)

To quote the Telegraph: "An estimated 1,200 people - mainly Eritreans, Sudanese and Afghans - are currently squatting in disused factories in the city, or living in tents and beneath tarpaulins in scrubland by the port terminal. Almost all of them hope to sneak onto a lorry and travel to Britain."

comment What's the best way to go to Barcelona from Madrid?
Hi, 'best way' evokes opinions and we're not very good at opinions. Please edit your question so that it specifies cheap, fast, or practical and so on. Even time of day makes a difference in the best way of getting from Madrid to Barcelona. Try to be as specific as possible and you will get some high quality answers. Thanks

This is nonsense. Someone may need a Schengen to transit the Schengen zone or a Russian transit in order to arrive in Kazakhstan, but it's lunacy to think Kazakhstan requires three visas. Close voting as 'unclear'.

comment How do I explore the Black Sea Coast between Georgia and Istanbul?
Just to clarify, you want to take a bus from Tbilisi to Batumi, and then cruise from there to Istanbul, is that right? And presumably you want to consider a driver to make the land route to Istanbul? Or just the Batumi leg? Please clarify, at the moment your question is attracting close votes as 'unclear what you are asking'. Thanks
