comment I have a passport stamp with the wrong date. What problems could this cause?
If you are accused of a crime committed in Canada during the time you say you didn't stay there, with witnesses claiming they saw you, you might have a hard time claiming that you weren't in Canada at all.

comment If you had only two full days to visit Venice Italy for the first time, what would you see and do?
Take a vaporeti, the public transport ferries that go through the whole canale grande for cheap. It's better than sitting in an overpriced gondola.

comment Meeting young people in Mongolia, especially outside UB
There's little to do anywhere outside UB, except enjoy the countryside. So, also few occasions to meet anyone. And, unless you speak Mongolian, it's going to be hard. But, if you do, striking up a conversation with anyone, anywhere, will be enjoyed by pretty much everyone.

comment What is the purpose of the odd sticker in a new British passport?
I suspect that the sticker should have been removed before it was handed over by the passport service.

comment Can you currently get from Turkey to Egypt by ferry?
As far as I know, yes. The turkey to Egypt ferry has never, to my knowledge, been consistently available to 'regular' people, though (as opposed to for ferrying goods).

comment I need to buy a good quality bicycle in or near Amsterdam
That car would have. It survived nearly 30 years in Africa. That makes it pretty much indestructible.

@gerrit: OMG. Bikes that cost more than what I paid for my last car.

comment In which countries can I find spiders as traditional dishes?
Indeed, Edmund. :) keep in mind that you can pretty much eat anything anywhere. But not everywhere is everything considered a delicacy.

comment What's the most cost effective way to bike (motorcycles) from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok?
Bonus suggestion: cut up your question in three different questions.

comment Airbnb alternative that doesn't require id verification
I'm surprised this needs to be said: Very few individuals will be willing to rent out their place to someone who has not been verified beforehand. If you don't want to verify yourself, you are not too likely to find a place to stay through services where the majority does verify itself.

comment Airbnb alternative that doesn't require id verification
It doesn't sound like a good idea to run such a service. Alternatives are wimdu and 9flats. They probably also require you to identify yourself.

comment Is it possible to play with Tigers in Thailand?
Hm. So, I suppose they have a presence in Phuket as well.

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

comment How to track my travels nicely?
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. :)

The info you need is here: evisa.gov.tr/en

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.
