comment Exceed visa by a day Argentina (90 day tourist visa)
Are you leaving by plane or by land? Which border crossing? Either way, you will technically have to pay a fine. Whether you actually will be required to do will depend on a bunch of small factors, including the mood of the person doing immigration control.

comment How up to date is the Man from seat 61?
@nsn: You specifically refer to 'planning a trip' and 'comments about bus connections'. Therefore, you're wondering about connections in specific countries. Most likely, that's what André Peseur is referring to.

comment Why is renting a car so expensive in Iceland?
@phoog: On the face of it, that's of course true. I didn't want to write up a long treatise about how shipping to underpopulated small island nations is relatively expensive as shipping large volumes means keeping stock for extended periods of times, meaning an effective price increase of the final product.

Are you saying you drove 4000km in Iceland? How many times did you go around the island? :)

comment I have a 12-hour layover in Istanbul. Will I be able to leave the airport to do some sightseeing in the city?
You've got a 12-hour layover and the half-day tours don't work for you? That sounds like you might be able to get a free hotel stay.

comment Do Mongolians still prefer receiving hard copy photos?
I think this is a fair question, if hard to answer. Outside of the few cities, the nomadic lifestyle still means access to electricity is limited for many. On the steppes, many will have a phone, but not many will have a smartphone with easy internet access.

If there's a desk for this, it's very likely that some tickets do not have departure tax included.

comment Wearing makeup in the amazon (Ecuador)?
I'm not totally sure, but I think that animals in more temperate climes also don't wear makeup.

comment Travelling through Ecuador by train
I think you're out of luck. Train travel has only recently become a priority in Ecuador. Though several tracks have recently been refurbished, services are not yet ready for the masses.
