comment Ferrying Icelandic rental car vs renting on Faroe Islands
There are far too many unknown variables here, making it difficult or impossible to give you an advice. When are you going? How long are you staying in Iceland before and after the trip to the Faroe Islands? How long are you staying on the Faroe Islands? What kind of car (length and height is relevant for the cost of the ferry ticket)?

comment Is hitchhiking permitted in the Faroe Islands?
I sincerely doubt that there are any legal regulations on hitchhiking, neither in Denmark nor on the Faroe Islands. Motorways in Denmark are not accessible to pedestrians and it is illegal to stop when driving a vehicle (unless required by the traffic situation), so it is rather the requirements (a vehicle stops to pick up a pedestrian) for hitchhiking which are prohibited and not hitchhiking itself.

comment Traveling to Germany before using a type D visa for Belgium
@Karlson: But why should he? It will only bring potential problems, which weren't there without the short-term visa.

comment Traveling to Germany before using a type D visa for Belgium
@Karlson: Not really. Your question relates to the potential problems having both a national long-term visa and a generic Schengen short-term tourist visa. Here, the question is: Is it at all necessary to obtain a Schengen-wide visa to visit other countries if you already have a national long-term visa. Since the national long-term visa gives you more rights in the other Schengen countries than a short-term tourist visa, you'll just run into unnecessary problems if you try to travel using a combination of two such visas.

comment Are medical doctors legally doctors wherever they are?
@Michael: It is a large difference between handling with "gross negligence" and that "something goes wrong".

I wrote that avoiding self-injury is not necessarily an exclusion criteria. You pointing out that no one demands you to obviously put your life in danger and take up a fight with an armed mad-man does not disqualify my statement. Merely the fear of getting infected by contact with body fluids or performing CPR or refusal to exit your own vehicle to help in a traffic accident (even if you are safer in the car) may not free you from the duty to help.

comment Are medical doctors legally doctors wherever they are?
You cannot make such a detailed description of the legal obligation to help without limiting yourself to a specific legislation. In German law, the duty to aid help is even extended to the protection of material property and not at all restricted to life-threatening medical emergencies. The required scope of the help may be defined by the helper's experience and education. A medical doctor may be required to aid help in situations, where a lay-man is not. Risking a self-injury is not necessarily an exclusion criteria from the requirement to aid help.

comment Do you get passport checked on a round trip to Antarctica from Ushuaia, Argentina?
Why do you think that your passport needs to be valid for six months when entering Argentina (there seem to be no such requirement) and why do you even assume that there will be no passport control when reentering Argentina the second time (no matter where you actually come from)?

comment Lesovo, Bulgaria to Hamzabeyli, Turkey with bike
The border crossing close to Malko Tarnavo might indeed have less traffic than at Lesovo, but it would be a substantial detour from my planned route and other online sources claim the Malko Tarnavo crossing to be very busy due to its serving of the larger cities along the Black Sea coast. But since it seems possible to get through at Lesovo, everything is ok. Thank you very much!

comment Lesovo, Bulgaria to Hamzabeyli, Turkey with bike
There are several online references claiming that the border crossing between Kapitan Andreevo and Kapıkule is closed for pedestrians. The Bulgarian Wikiedpia article mentions that it has been closed since 2005 for pedestrians.

comment Lesovo, Bulgaria to Hamzabeyli, Turkey with bike
I read somewhere that the border crossing is almost exclusively used by lorries and commercial vehicles due to the sparse population in central Bulgaria. Even if there is not much non-commercial traffic there, I've not seen any indications that only commercial traffic is let through. The last article you're linking to is however written by a motor-cyclist. I am planning to cross with an old-fashioned bicycle with thigh propulsion.
