comment Istanbul - Bosphorus at night
As you're probably flying Turkish, you probably can claim a free city tour, or possibly even a hotel.

I played around with that, but OpenID turned out to be quite buggy when implemented. Let me commit to adding a provider when I have some time on my hands. :)

You prefer Google over Facebook or Twitter. Interesting. I'll keep that in mind. (email/password logins are less likely to happen, it requires much more overhead and security precautions than using a third party provider for identification.)

Hey, use dopplr.org! :) The problem with dopplr.com was that Nokia bought them but never did anything with it, having other priorities that needed serving first.

Fog of World is a very, very clever app. I don't immediately see a way of getting your data out of their app, though (but, I have not installed it).

I like Moves. It's a pity there's fairly little integration with other services.

comment Iquitos or Puerto Maldonado, for jungle adventures in Peru?
It better look good at those prices :) I'm quite sure the southern Amazon is much less frequented, so it would be interesting for its exclusivity alone. But, you'll probably also pay for that exclusivity.

comment Do I need a transit visa for layover in Luanda?
One ticket or multiple tickets? Your nationality? If the latter you typically will have to pick up your luggage before boarding again, which typically means going through customs. If the former, you typically would be able to stay in the airport. You can check visa requirements at cibtvisas.com. And you should really ask your airline what the transfer entails.

comment Why has it become a formidable task to book an affordable hotel in Vancouver BC two weeks in advance?
Several of the hostels seem to provide single-occupancy rooms at reasonable enough prices. And, you know, beggars can't be choosers. Anyway, speculating on the reason the prices are high, is this not simply due to most hotels being full or nearly full, possibly because... it's the middle of high season? If you search for accommodation several months away, prices are much lower.
