comment Is there secure bicycle parking at the Reading train station?
@Gagravarr I'll probably go with Readybike the first time, and/or buy a foldable bike as I'm going to need to do this many times. On my upcoming trip I'm transferring to Eurostar so taking the bicycle is a somewhat involved/pricey alternative.

Ah well, looks like they don't want to encourage cycling in the UK... They're a bit behind the 12,500 bicycle station being constructed in Utrecht, Netherlands. I'll have to find another way to get to the station.

comment Free camping in Uk, Belgium, Netherlands - is it legal?
Fortunately a UK landowner is unlikely to have a US interpretation of "reasonable force", so it shouldn't be too dangerous.

comment Is there secure bicycle parking at the Reading train station?
@Gagravarr Hmm, considering the large number of people commuting from Reading to London, I'd expect there should be a market for something more secure than that...

comment Thalys surcharge with “Any Dutch Station” ticket
@Gagravarr It's Eurostar. I forgot to state, but isn't that implied by the fact that I mention the train from Brussels to Amsterdam? Rail+Sail connects to Hoek van Holland so Thalys wouldn't help that much in getting anywhere.

comment Thalys surcharge with “Any Dutch Station” ticket
@nicholaschris I know there are regular intercity trains. I was wondering if it was possible to buy a Thalys surcharge without buying the full ticket.

Right, I asked lake in my question because it was claimed to be in Colorado...

comment Deutsche Bahn: Reliable wifi on train?
Considering the rate at which European night trains have been shut down in recent years, I would not assume EuroNight continues to exist at all.

comment Is it still allowed to travel to the US without booking hotels in advance?
I've used the name of a forestry road as an address when I was going on a backpacking trip.
