comment Is it safe to visit Cairo in 2014?
@Flimzy my question goes behond that. Even if the political situation is stable enough to visit Cairo, the civil support systems may not be. I just want to know if, as a individual foreigner individual what my chances are.

@Flimzy I understand your point, but aren't you being a bit too analytical? Cairo has been through a rough time. I want to know if there is risk and what kind of risk it is for an average person. Than I can evaluate my chances. If I was a "rambo" I would mention it.

I have around 4 hours. It would be a short visit, and mostly by night.

comment Is it ok to use a virtual credit card to buy an airplane ticket?
Definitly, but those virtual cards give you a level o guarantee by contract that some of the physical ones don't. Most of them are specificaly tailored for the web.

"gather a huge amount of personal data are probably safe enough bets to simply use your real card number". I wouldn't bet on that. There are plenty of examples of large websites related with technology companys beeing hacked.

comment How far is the sea from Bruges and how easy is it to reach it?
I have to disagree. That probably seems obvious for you that know the region. I can easily see in google maps that the city is close to the sea. I even mentioned that, but knowing what I will find there, if it's worth the trip (I know this is a bit subjective) or what kind of transport there is, is not so straight forward. Some "local" knowledge definitly helps.

@Liam your sugestion sounds intersting but I would classify that more as "Hercule Poirot" thing than MacGuyver. In any case if you know something like that go ahead and post it as an answer.

comment Is there a website or resource with tips of places where to leave luggage?
No doubt it's a big business. Thanks for the tip, but I am looking for more out of the usual schemes. Sometimes those places are just too expensive to leave luggage for half an hour or so.

comment Is there a website or resource with tips of places where to leave luggage?
You raise a good point . For now I seek a guide with examples, like the one in the linked answer. I don't expect leave it at place X (though that's a good idea too) but more of - "ask in a shop, etc." But I expect a bit more ingenious ideas.

comment Is it illegal to purchase fake designer handbags from street sellers in Spain?
@jwenting probably you're right, but I don't know how it is in detail. I just told what I knew. It's very uncommon to see those in Spain and if the sellers are usually worried to be caught I never saw a buyer running away :)

comment Aerosol cans in the checked luggage?
I read somewhere that (at least in Europe) companies now travel with the luggage compartment pressurized. I am not sure how accurate this information is though.

comment Walk from San Sebastian to Picos de Europa in 3 days with some hitch-hiking?
At a first glance I would say it's unrealistic. For the same path hitchhiking I have taken 1h and around 6 hours. It's simply very hard to know how long it will take to move by hitchhiking. I don't know that area particulary but if you try it (and it sounds like great fun :) ) I would definitly try to have a plan B

comment What is the rule regarding tips in Czech Republic?
I don't know what you consider the center of Prague, but I was definitly not in District 1. I was actually in a street near Legerova and I chose the restaurant for the fact that most people seemed locals. I also had the same issue with the "wrong" change.
