comment How far can you realistically travel across potentially rough water in an inflatable dinghy?
+1 for the last paragraph. It isn't what OP asked, but it's exactly what he needs to consider.

@STTLCU: "In Milan, a stop light is an order. In Rome, it is a suggestion. In Naples, it is a decoration."

comment US employer suggests two 90 day contract periods instead of work visa. Is this okay?
@MarkMayo: Clueless lawyers who give advice are by definition dodgy (the phrase wilful carelessness comes to mind from court reports).

comment Who pays for the return ticket when a country refuses entry?
@happybuddha Don't follow your question. If you are denied entry for any reason the airline has to take you back rather than leaving you unable to stay, unable to go on and unable to go back. Airlines try to minimise the chances of this, but the final decision is not theirs.

@gerrit: There are no conventions covering bus/train, as there is no need; you disembark at the border, and can use a return ticket, walk back, or stay there as you wish. Ferries are IIRC not strictly liable, but if you aren't allowed in they will perforce have to take you back, and argue about the fare later.

comment Legal documents and formalities required to sail far out to sea/ocean?
@Annoyed: this is a travel website. Certainly regimes such as North Korea will physically stop you from leaving; whether they have the right to do so is a philosophical question. (It's also not technically the same question as whether they will stop you travelling to international waters.)

comment What should I expect when I stay in a hotel?
All hotels should have a safe for valuables; often this is in the manager's office, and only accessible through the reception clerk. That makes it too much trouble for most of us, but OP may wish to keep his passport secure, for example.
