comment Is it legal for a US citizen to travel to Cuba?
The next question, of course, is: what happens if you do anyway?

VIA Rail no longer sells bicycle boxes. I finally got my box at Greyhound. Will confirm dimensions later.

Their policy might have changed. I have the forture of living in a large city so I can try both Via and Greyhound.

Hmm, why is that baggage policy linked on a 4 year old blog post in Portuguese and not on VIA Rail itself...? Anyway, I'll go by the station tomorrow and ask.

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.

comment Is there secure bicycle parking at the Reading train station?
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.

@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.
