comment Arriving at night before Schengen visa valid date?
Yeah, I thought about suggesting that, but that might be much harder than it might appear. Plus, it's anyone's guess whether they'll honor that at checkin.

Agreed. Though even contacting them on their policy might still mean you're left to the whims of those that check you in.

So, I think it's an interesting question, but not really one for here.

comment Longest journey required to travel between two points on the globe?
The answer to this question is one of those travel time maps. Creating one for the world is a bit of a chore, but it's theoretically possible. Here are a few examples.

comment What gesture to make when hitchhiking in Iran?
I suspect that 'hitchhiking' in Iran is not expected to be free to the hitchhiker.

That link isn't working for me, but I suppose. This might be the other one: www2.baanchangelephantpark.com

comment Place with well-treated elephants in Ko Samui/Chiang Mai?
I remember there are at least two elephant parks close to Chiang Mai where previously maltreated elephants are pampered. You can wash and pet them. I don't remember the names of these places.

comment Colombian entering Colombia on day of Colombian passport expiry date, could I be refused entry?
The point is not when your passport expires, but that an expired passport doesn't mean you lose citizenship as Colombians without a passport are still Colombians.

comment Does Ryanair serve alcohol on short flights?
Enlist your neighbours and have them ask for drinks too (when the drinks are free).

Also, keep in mind that you can, legally, bring 100ml bottles of liquid on board. In fact, you can bring 10 100ml bottles of liquid on board... Save the little bottles you buy!

This is the crux of the question. Confirmation?

comment Where can I travel for prolonged periods of time while legally working remotely for a company in my home country?
I think it's the latter. Business trips on tourist visas are tolerated. Here's what a Schengen tourist visa allows: "... with the sole purpose of traveling in the designated Schengen country/countries for pleasure or on a visit to their relatives living in the Schengen Zone."

Well, shows what I know. Do you actually pay with the driver, or do you pay a machine at the bus stop?

comment Do I need a Chilean identification number just to buy a bus ticket?
@Vince: can't say I remember. I took a few busses in Chile last year but couldn't book all of them online without a RUT. I also remember that, last year, I had the same issue with a few Brazilian bus companies (with their CPF).

As OP found, some online systems might not be designed for individuals without a RUT.
