comment Changing money for Ethiopia. Where can I get the best rates?
Almost everywhere with ATMs and non currency controls, your cheapest way is (as detailed in the other questions) to get a no-fx-fee card, and withdraw money using it.

comment Flybe just cancelled my return flight. Will they refund that part of the trip?
Since the flights are all within the EU, EU-261 will also dictate the very minimum they have to offer in this situation

Can you clarify what about this situation makes it different from the many other "where should I change my money" questions we have on the site?

The Seven Mountains will still be there, so if nothing else you can enjoy some stunning hikes!

comment Does the new Doha Hamad International still offer “alcoholic left luggage”, and how does it work?
That page says you're not allowed to bring alcohol into Qatar, which I'm already aware of. The old airport used to let you leave alcohol "before entering" Qatar, for collection "after leaving", which was a strange and unusual but helpful setup, with the booze staying inside the airport

That would seem to imply that the new airport doesn't support holding+claiming of alcohol for tourists on a layover like the old airport did, but ideally I'd like to find something that explicitly references that case either way to be sure!

comment Does the new Doha Hamad International still offer “alcoholic left luggage”, and how does it work?
Apparently, the old airport offered a service to look after your alcohol for you before customs, with a claim on departure, I'm trying to find out if the new one does too or not. (I explicitly don't want to try to take it with me into Doha, I'm trying to see if I can leave the alcohol "air side" while I visit Qatar for a bit)

Ideally I'd like to bring stuff with me that's not easily available beyond the region it's made in, so wouldn't be available in Doha duty free, if that's possible

comment How far can you realistically travel across potentially rough water in an inflatable dinghy?
I think your big variable could be currents and tides. What's fine on one stretch of water could be lethal on a different one, especially one with strong tidal flows and currents. Sadly for you, many of the scottish islands are well enough known for those that they're piloting tidal electric power generation off some of them!
