comment Self-defense and sensible areas on Germany?
@Freedo: If you had read the statistics I've linked to, you would have seen that the factors I quote are already corrected for the difference in population count. In absolute numbers, there are 11 times as many rapes and 19 times as many homicides in the US as in Germany. The German rape statistics have been stable for the last 20 years even if many refugees have settled in that period. I don't see why it is obvious to expect any significant change in the next 10 years.

comment Self-defense and sensible areas on Germany?
There are 3 times as many rapes reported and 6 times as many homicides in the US as in Germany. If you care about your sister's safety, you should advice her to flee your extremely violent home country and apply for asylum as a refugee in a European country like Germany.

comment Transferring between airports in Oslo (Norway)
The prices are very inaccurate. Both train and bus is about US$ 30.

comment Transferring between airports in Oslo (Norway)
When do you have to be at Gardermoen? If budget is a priority, why are you asking for the quickest transfer?

comment Transferring between airports in Oslo (Norway)
You have to provide more details. You can transfer fast and expensive by taxi, or slow and cheaper by bus or train. Bus and train schedules depends on which weekday and time you intend to travel.

comment Can I take a sex-toy on plane through UAE?
@user568458 The IATA information page on customs rules for Saudi Arabia lists especially alcohol and pork products as prohibited for transit passengers. I am not sure why you expect transit passengers to be exempt from general laws in the country they are transiting? iatatravelcentre.com/…

comment Can I take a sex-toy on plane through UAE?
@user568458 Even when you are in transit and haven't passed immigration or customs, you are still on UAE soil and must expect to be subject to most UAE laws. A similar situation would be if you fly between two locations, in which cannabis is legalized, but transit through a third location where cannabis is illegal. Even if you for the purpose of immigration or customs don't enter the transit country, you would still be breaking the local laws by being in posession of an illegal substance.

comment How to make dining alone less awkward?
Is the awkwardness in eating alone some kind of cultural phenomenon? I often eat out alone (both when travelling and when at home) and have never thought of that being odd. BTW, very closely related: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/48051/eating-alone-in-london

comment Customs and immigration procedures for flights to/from Tijuana Airport (airport with terminals in two different countries)
Isn't the CBX just a regular border crossing dedicated for passenger flying to and from Tijuana airport? There's nothing on their web site indicating or suggesting anything else: 'CBX is an international border crossing and all standard international requirements apply.'

comment Obtaining visas while travelling
I think asking for visa rules for Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, Laos and Vietnam in one question is too broad. In general, many countries require you to apply for a visa at the consulate in charge at the place of your permanent residence. Many countries also only allows you to apply for a visa within a relatively short period before your intended visit (e.g. for the Schengen area only three months in advance). If you plan a longer trip, these two requirements may conflict with eachother and actually require you to go back to your place of residence to solve visa issues.

comment Benefit cards combination for Berlin
Honestly, without knowing exactly which museums you are planning to visit, it is impossible for us as well to tell you which offer is the cheapest. When it comes to transportation, Berlin is a relatively large city and unless you intend to spend most of the day walking, you will most likely need a ticket for public transportation.
