comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
Oh. I did not know. Maybe you're right. (Scratch that up to another 'I thought everyone did that'). Any USAians care to comment?

US, UK & Ireland all have the "2 fingers" insult (right?) so I'd presume an american wouldn't have this problem.

comment Last minute reservation of hostels in France
I'm not sure, I never stayed in a hostel in France. I stayed in a hostel in Switzerland and turned up that day aswell. Twas fine. However it might be different in August.

I want something easier and quicker than a dictionary. Also I plan to go to several countries and do not want to carry several dictionaries, nor try to figure out what language someone speaks.

To correct one point, tap water is nearly always always freely available in restaurants in Ireland.

comment Is Norway significantly more expensive than other European destinations?
FTR this Norwegian guy said that lots of things that would affect travelers are more expensive in Norway, e.g. drinks in a bar are more expensive in Norway.

comment Update Facebook and/or Twitter via SMS while travelling
I will be travelling around Southeastern Europe. I will be camping or staying in hostels, I do not think free or non-free wifi will be that available, so I don't want to rely on it. I shall only be travelling around several countries for 3 weeks, so don't want to buy a local SIM card, esp. if I'll only be in a country for a few days. Ergo, I require some number that works with roaming.

comment Where to find free printable road maps/atlases online?
@Flimzy yes nearly all map data (excl. USA mostly) is copyrighted, but some, like OSM, is released in an open source/creative commons like licence making it "free as in beer"
