comment What are the two closest capital cities in the world?
Good point, and in this case, what about Jerusalem, claimed as a capital by Israelians and Palestinians? I guess since neither state is widely recognized internationally, that would be the disqualifying point.

comment “Tropical beach” in continental Europe?
I think you can add Portugal, Spain and France. On the French rivera, there are even palm trees (for the tropical spirit), even though beaches are tiny.

comment Portable Wifi Hotspot for Italy
What you are saying (that 3 UK offers unlimited data for cheaper) just means getting a plan in Italy might be more expensive. That is not surprising, the national markets in Europe are very different (Italian providers market to Italians, UK providers to UK people so they are not competing), it is common to have such price discrepancies (for example, if you had a plan in France, roaming for up to 35 days per year - the length of holidays for most people - is now included in some plans when travelling to some European countries)

comment Portable Wifi Hotspot for Italy
So, to repeat, a portable hotspot is a device, like this offered by Wind. You will put a SIM card in that device instead of putting it in your phone. The plan you pay for does not depend on the device. In other words, no matter whether you use a phone or portable hotspot,the plan is the same.

comment Portable Wifi Hotspot for Italy
OK I see, so you want a package Internet plan + WiFi device. If your phone has data (3G/4G/LTE), you can just pay for the plan and if you need to share the connection, most smartphones can do that.

comment Portable Wifi Hotspot for Italy
What do you call a portable wifi hotspot? a device that you can connect to through wifi (and connecting to the Internet through 3G/4G, but in this case it requires a SIM card anyway)? a plan that allows you to connect to WiFi networks of providers (if there are any available on your way)? I am a bit confused by your question.

comment Is there a map/list of all regional trains departing from Paris?
@O.R.Mapper It depends what you mean by "train traffic system". Regions only decide which are the train lines and when they run. SNCF operates them and they use the same tools nationally. Trains are bought with multi-region contracts. So all I imagine is that to get the map for a train line, I have to go on a regional SNCF website.

comment Can I search for European train connections avoiding certain stations?
Avoiding Paris itself or avoiding Paris area? e.g. you do not want to arrive in Gare du Nord and leave from Gare de Lyon or even stopping for half an hour in Massy is out of question? Anyway, given the structure of the French network, it will be hard to avoid, you might be better off doing it manually

comment Direct travel from Dublin to Reykjavik
@Calchas I see how this question does not seem so hard to answer as using the right tool is enough. But many (most?) questions can be answered with little search on the web, that does not make them uninteresting/unclear. And the constraint of not flying through specific countries for visa reason is quite common, even though flight search engines do not provide convenient tools for that (direct flight option is usually an advanced setting, and not all search engines offer to avoid a specific country/airport).
