comment Travelling within the US as a British citizen without a passport
+1 on the bars. I was always able to talk my way in using just the pink EU licence, but a lot of places seemed unhappy and would ask for passport instead.

comment Can I go from Paris to London by train on a one-day trip?
It's possible, I have done it (in reverse) to go to job interviews. Check @MarkMayo's comment though - I wouldn't recommend it.

comment Am I expected to tip wait staff in Europe?
"the kind of places that accept credit cards" - to be honest, it would need to be a REALLY small place to not accept credit cards. Just about any business with it's own address is likely to accept cards, if we're only thinking of western Europe.

comment Accidentally travelling with a large amount of cash - epic fail!
While it doesn't apply to this case (I don't think opening a new bank account is a good idea just for this), I've actually found the banks to be one of the simplest things about France! The week I arrived I went into LCL and made an appointment, spoke to an adviser within a week, and opened an account there and then. Card sent by mail. <2 weeks to open a new account is not bad.

comment Is there a cheapest city / airline / season to fly one-way from anywhere in Europe to Australia?
+1 just for mentioning Flightfox - this is new to me too. :)

comment Travelling with beach sand in carry-on
Nor does he mention bringing 999,999 friends. While @MarkMayo makes an interesting point, I really doubt taking a pinch of sand is going to have a measurable environmental impact.

comment What truly cross-continental train trips still exist?
Sounds great @rlesko. I've never been to India, but lately I've been reading a lot, and am still inspired by the sheer size. I guess these railways really epitomise that idea for me. :)
