comment A resource for multi-country SIM providers
The cost of roaming is dropping a lot in Europe, so are you sure you need to pay the premium for multiple numbers?

comment What is a good resource for walks in the Peak District?
The Peak District is quite large, and has a huge number of possible walks (combining the paths in different ways), so for a comprehensive set you might be best off just learning to read OS maps and make your own!

comment Half day in Tallinn
Tallin isn't that big, you can probably manage most of the main tourist spots in an afternoon!

comment Can I renew my US passport by mail while I'm outside the country?
On a related note, the Expatriates SE site should be starting any day now, you might want to join that when it does and ask there about how to get Brazilian residency status based on your marriage!

comment Travelling with infant who stops being an infant during the trip (turns 2)
On BA a child who's 2 or more needs their own seat, but if they start the trip as an infant that seat is free (but you have to phone up to book as it's a special case). Other airlines may do the same, best check with your airline

comment Travelling with infant who stops being an infant during the trip (turns 2)
For many airlines, the rules on age apply based on the age at the time of the first flight. Have you tried asking the airline in question what their rules are?

comment Places to ski in Ireland (or UK)
I think for the UK and Ireland, it's Scotland or nothing if you want real snow on a mountain with a choice of "proper" runs

comment Should Paris museums be booked online?
Paris Pass only makes sense if you visit a lot of places. Also, IIRC, it lets you skip the queue to buy a ticket, which can certainly help at some places, but doesn't normally get you a special entrance if the queue is after the ticket office

comment Transportation from St Pancras station to ExCel convention center
Northern Line to Bank then DLR should be quite a bit quicker than Circle then DLR. Northern / Jubilee / DLR might be slightly quicker again, check the TFL Journey Planner to be sure

comment Dual Citizen (US/UK) Cuba Travel
Why would you show your UK passport on return to the US? Surely you'll just show your US one, since that's what you must use to enter the US as a US citizen?

comment Qantas Carbon offsets are different in different directions - why?
Do the flight times differ? i.e. is it scheduled to take longer to go one way than the other? (Perhaps due to winds, perhaps due to typical airport hold delays)
