comment What to do without underwear on a 4 day trip?
If someone else bought 4 pairs of underwear, as part of your barter offer to wash a pair for them so they only need 3.

comment I am interested in visiting a refugee camp. What would be a good place to do so in Europe?
@JonathanReez There is substantially more to getting someone into a refugee camp than just opening the door and saying "go talk to people". For starters they have to make sure you aren't a drug seller, human trafficer etc. Every time someone does this a refugee worker has to take time off helping the refugees to deal with the 'tourist'. I absolutely back up what the others have said - if you are really interested in learning more about this situation, talk first to the organizations on the ground.

comment Weather to expect first half of September, British Columbia,Canada
I would also bet good money that one of your excursions in Jasper will be to the Columbia Ice Fields - essentially a walk on a glacier. A warm jacket will be useful there too,

comment How do I purchase and book a round trip ticket for someone living in Ghana to come to U.S.?
It's none of my business, and hopefully I'm totally off base, but there are people out there who try to use 'romantic involvement' with Americans as a means to get entry to the country. Have you considered going to visit her in Ghana?

comment How soon can I re-enter the USA having stayed for 90 days under the Visa waiver programme? I am a UK citizen
@MarkMayo I would edit that last comment into the answer. It's very important that the OP understands it. If they go to Canada for "a short time" and try to come back, they are very likely to be refused.

comment What are potential dangers of putting a copy of one's boarding pass online?
Theoretically someone could reproduce your boarding card and use it to get on the flight instead of you (assuming they had other convincing IDs). But to pull this off they would also need to prevent you getting on the flight. That second part sounds more complicated than the first.

comment How to reach the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region with maximum hitchhiking and minimum expenditure from Guangzhou?
If I follow the links from Wikitravel to the official websites of the crossing points, several explicitly talk about crossing on foot. However it very much reads as if you are expected to then take public transport to Hong Kong 'proper'. They all have notes saying (for example) "Lo Wu Control Point is located inside the Frontier Closed Area. Cross-boundary visitor should possess a valid travel document. Non-cross-boundary travelers should possess a valid Closed Area Permit.". Presumably the Frontier Closed area is closed only to those not crossing the border (at least legally).
