comment Are there restrictions on Greyhound Australia's “hop on hop off” tickets?
@jpatokal Other bus companies actually manage to offer all passengers a guaranteed seat, even without prior reservation. NOR-WAY Bussekspress is one example. They use stand-by coaches able to step in on short notice if the regular capacity is exceeded.

Well, the terms and conditions actually specify that Greyhound Australia is only obliged to transport you if you have a reservation. This could be interpreted to mean that you are only allowed to use your Hop On Hop Off pass if there are free seats in the bus you intend to travel with.

comment Personal item size on a United Airlines flight to Asia
This probably apply to "traditional" airlines, which are usually not very concerned about carry-on luggage. At least several European low-cost airlines (and I am especially thinking about a particular Irish airline named after its founder Ryan) are however extremely picky with applying horrendous charges for anything slightly beyond their terms and conditions.

comment Canadian overstayed a US visit by one year what is the penality and when can he return to the US?
@CarrieZiegler: Unless you provide a detailed description of the situation, noone will be able to give you any senseful answer. If he (or she?) actually overstayed his visa once, the first violation would impose at least a three year ban from entering the US again. If he still did so, he has not only overstayed, but violated an entry ban, which may cause a permanent ban from reentering the US. What of all this is actually on record by the US authorities?

Did he overstay with more or less than one year (here, the exact duration of the overstay is relevant). When did he overstay? Did he leave the US voluntarily before the institution of removal proceedings?

comment Italy schengen visa: Ticket reservations for flights
From where do you have the visa requirement that a confirmed flight reservation is required? The EU regulations covering the Schengen agreement have no such requirement.

comment What can you do about being forced to sit next to a very large passenger?
@NateKerkhofs "Logical" is unfortunately not an objective criteria. I am sure that you'll find enough people finding it completely logical that they won't be driven by a female taxi driver or treated by a black doctor.

@Berhard: Like a cage at the gate? "All passengers must be able to fit within this cage to be allowed boarding!" That would be very convenient. Or how would you define passenger size? (sarcasm intended)

comment Motorcycle tour of Sweden and Norway
I don't understand why motorcyclists shouldn't be able to cook and prepare food themselves. Even without cooking, there's no need to go out for cold meals (bread, cheese, ham, marmalade) and it's no problem in Sweden to go out and have a proper warm meal well below 100 SEK.

comment Motorcycle tour of Sweden and Norway
It is completely nonsense, that you need at least 400 SEK/day for food not to starve. Being on a tight budget and not going out for food, it should be absolutely no problem to survive with 50 SEK/day or even less.

comment Does an app exists that tells me if I am in the correct train in Belgium?
@Aditya: "Just ask someone who knows" is very unlikely a good answer to many of the questions here, since it simply raises a new question: "Where can I find someone who knows?", to which the answer may very well be "On travel.stackexchange.com". In this case, according to the question, the questioner is very likely within close vicinity of several other people able to help. But I've written a longer explanation in the meta post, hopefully that will contribute to something.
