comment Is it safer to travel with another person when hitchhiking in western Europe?
@JoErNanO yeah for me it was the definition of safety that bothered me. I tried to restrict safety to "abduction risk". Feel free to change it if that's too specific/makes too little sense

You ask if it is safer with another person, that's subjective to me. The size of samples is probably not big enough to make a serious comparison between abduction among lone hitch hikers and among groups of hitch hikers.

This question is likely to be closed because "safety" is all relative. Maybe if you change your question to specifically ask the statistics of abduction of hitchhikers it might not be subjective any more. To give you hints of answers, I can remember such a story in the news a couple years ago in France. This one incident is to be compared with the thousands of deaths due to "simple driving" in France. So objectively, you have more chances to have a car accident while hitch hiking than being abducted - no matter how many people you are.

I suppose, or maybe the name of the station just does not match the name of the town (there does not seem to be any town called Sant Marti de Centelles)

Actually, it looks like Sant Marti de Centelles station is 200m from Aiguafreda.

comment Western Europe Lonely Planet Travel Guide for a trip from Paris to Milan for Expo Milano
@jpatokal yeah it's just a suggestion on the format of the guidebooks. From what I saw before, the Lonely Planet offers any level of details one wishes (e.g. taking the Northern Italy chapter, the Lombardy chapter, the Milan and area chapter, the Milan chapter). So it is possible to mix and match chapters of different books (France, Eastern France, Northern Italy) to find all the information for the whole trip.

Note that the Lonely Planet sells ebooks by the chapter, so you can buy the Paris chapter of France guidebook and the Milan chapter of Italy guidebook. That's cheaper and lighter

comment No email from abu dhabi
Hi, welcome to the website. This is a bit confused. Could you tell us where you want to go, what visa you are seeking, who you emailed, what your nationality is? My guess would be that you applied for a visa to go to UK through the UK embassy in Abu Dhabi, but that is not very clear. Also, what is your question? As it stands, if your visa is refused, that means your visa is refused. You cannot enter the UK (if that's your target). period.
