comment Can my mother meet my BF in T5 first class lounge even though she flies to/from T2 & T3?
Also, your BF can't guest someone into any BA lounge who doesn't have a same-day OneWorld flight, so even if she could make it to the terminal (which she can't), she wouldn't be allowed in the lounge!

Another possible problem for you - Terminal 2 closed several years ago, and doesn't re-open until June 2014...

comment Student train discounts in Germany without BahnCard?
You used to be able to buy a BahnCard 25 valid for just 3 months, at a decent discount, if that's still available could that be an option?

comment Two Weeks in Cambridge (England), practicing sport in group
You just need to wrap up warm, and maybe take a thermos of warm winter pimms rather than normal pimms + lemonade, but other than that it's still fun!

comment Is it possible to get a VAT refund on goods I purchased in the UK if I'm departing Europe from Paris?
Surely you'll be leaving the UK at some point to get to France? So can't you claim it then?

comment How do you call a local service number, when abroad?
For the UK, you can use SayNoTo0870 to look up the regular number in place of the special and/or premium numbers. For UK freephone numbers, you can call those from Skype at no charge. Those are fairly UK specific though, so I'm not sure there is a general answer

comment How can I get boarding card in UK Gatwick airport with Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV)?
BA normally offer online checkin, along with printing your boarding pass, 24 hours before departure. Could you not do this, and print your boarding pass before setting off from home?

Does the answer in this question on Indian holders of US F1 visas and the UK not cover you?

comment Wrong ID proof selected for UK train ticket
UK rail ticket machines normally need a chip to buy a ticket, but are you sure they need one when just collecting one bought online?

Did you try ringing them? They tend to have a few days delay on replying to emails

comment Is there a map or resource that represents the distance in terms of time instead of Km or Miles?
Won't it depend a lot of what modes of travel you consider? eg if Private Jet is allowed, then everywhere is pretty linear other than distance to nearest small airport, while if you limit to Public Transport it'll look rather different to limiting to car, while cycling is different again!

comment Renting a van for 6-7 people in Australia
What are you hoping to see on your tour? Countryside? Coast? Cities? Sydney/Canberra/Melbourne/Adelaide would be very different to one sticking inland, or one preferring the coast

But why would you ever want one for anywhere else? ;-)

comment Are the Bodleian Library's Magna Cartas on show?
If you're lucky enough to be able to get a Readers Card, it's an amazing collection of buildings filled with great things! It is possible to get access, but if you're not a current or ex Oxford student, it will involve forms and a very good reason...

I've just tried Mapnificent with Brisbane (Australia), and it seems to be missing large amounts of the public transport options! I fear it's not yet ready for prime time use, though it's a nice idea...

comment At what kind of eateries can you have a lamb roast in Australia?
My hunch is a pub, hotel or club would be your best bet. More high end places tend to opt for more "interesting" (or fancy or unusual) ways to cook the same meat
