comment Reachability map generator?
My latest attempt was a combination of How far can I travel (HFCIT) and Google Earth. HFCIT accepts one starting point and a max travel time, so I used it four times and each time then exported a KML file that I fed into Google Earth to get a visual overlap. As a workaround, this works OK, although with 4 layers of different color, it gets pretty hard to identify the overlap area. The bigger problem though is the low quality of the data that HFCIT generates in the first place - if anyone knows a better tool for this, let me know :-)

comment Are there any small towns near Edinburgh with good access to rural hiking routes?
+1 for the Kingdom of Fife - very picturesque fishing villages and a nice trail along the water all the way to St. Andrews.

comment Good locations in Spain for hiking, nature, architecture, and photo opportunities?
@VMAtm I know it's quite broad, but I'm only in the first stage of planning (i.e. I know next to nothing about Spain's sights and regions). Also, compare my question to this one which seems to be perfectly legit although having similar scope...

comment Online resources/communities especially for travelling to remote islands
Thanks for your answer! This information is certainly going to be helpful if I want to plan my trip to St Helena, but currently I'm really more on the lookout for sites with like-minded people to get inspired...

comment Online resources/communities especially for travelling to remote islands
Thanks for your comments, and I agree that this community should eventually be able to answer all my questions. However, I'm also interested in reading and exchanging stories about past experiences and such just to get inspired, and that's quite hard to come by on a Q&A site such as this one.

I know this is relatively easy for voice/text, but how well does this work for data connections? Have providers caught up?

My favorite Cyrillic word so far is PECTOPAH. Which is nothing else than a restaurant (lit. RESTORAN) :-)

Nope, Germany. This shouldn't really influence the answers though...
