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"

comment What's the highest price a country charges citizens of another country for tourist visa?
Oh yes I suppose. But "health insurance" is not required to enter the USA, only a "nice to have".

comment How best to prevent data loss while travelling?
Agreed 100%. It is not feisable to rely on local internet cafés or wifi. People seem to be hung up on "Will there be a FTP Client?" when the real problem is that the whole town is on dialup. Uploading is not possible.

comment Where can I buy a “roaming” or “international” SIM card — one with attached phone numbers in multiple countries?
Sounds like something of limited benefit. Having roaming and/or 2 different sim cards would solve just about all your travel needs?

comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
Yes all "cider" in the UK & Ireland is as alcoholic as beer. I always thought it strange to see Ned Flanders enthusiastically talking about cider on the Simpsons.

Correct. Offensive slang, like "faggot".
