comment “Mudflat hiking” (wadlopen in Dutch) in the Frisian Islands, where and how?
@Willeke yes. Unfortunatly I was not able to do it. These happen mostly at Friday and Saturday and there was none where I was. Later I discovered a few others, but it was too late. Regardin dht mud flat where you walk. I saw those and they seem amazing. Beautiful, full of live. Must be great not only for the walk but for what you see. There are some with explanations which sound really interesting. Unfortunatly these tours are mostly thought for Dutch and German speakers.

comment Is it possible to skip some legs of a cruise?
@SpaceDog your question as strong similarities. I was about to think it would be the same up until the last moment where you ask if you can split the trip with someone else.

You're right. I dont want any refund for the "lost leg". The price is already promotional. This is a package deal, all or nothing I doubt they can sell one or two nights to someone else :) .

@him and since its Schengen space it should not be a problem from a VISA/imigration perspective. But I wonder if this involved different countries with stricter policies between them.

@him I don't know the consequences, but I sure don't want people waiting or looking for me thinking I disappeared.

comment Would Ryanair tolerate a 15.6" laptop case as a second hand luggage?
Dont trust that only. My luggage was once measured with a ruler and that dimension was off by 2cm (I think even less) and had to pay extra. Having this said, they are currently a bit more layed back and it has become even nice to travel with them. Still I would advise not to abuse too much.

comment How much cash should I give my daughter for month long Japan trip?
I agree that this is opinion based, depends on the spending profile, etc. but maybe some help can be given. The average price meal in an average restaurant or even at known international chains. The cost of some reference products at the supermarket or the price of transport. These are objective values that may help the OP.

@Blackbird57 yes, I know. But I was expecting some solid pointers here. The pages I found were from people who did that. Its not clear how to do it. If itś possible to do it everyday. Who organizes. Where they depart from.

comment Is there a website that lists last minute opportunities?
How does that work? I tried it, but in the end it asks to pay. I though those were last minute oportunities.

comment Rental car insurance - Portugal (EU resident)
As far as I know it's a package deal. You may try to call the company where you want to hire directly and ask. There used to be a low cost company that had the prices announced without insurance. Maybe that's possible. They closed though.

comment Is there a website that lists last minute opportunities?
@OrangeDog I did some research, but "last minute travel opportunities" is definitly a very appetizing search term for blogs and travel agencies. In other words, you get lots of unwanted stuff. Some "inside knowledge" or expert knowledge, like the one provided here, might give way better results.

comment Is there a website or resource that lists specific traffic rules or specific signs for each country?
@LindaJeanne, I am just posting it as an example of sign that you may not know if you drive mostly in a country without snow.

comment What does this road sign mean? (Germany; red circle and X on a blue background, with a right-pointing arrow.)
That means it's forbidden to stop or park, from the point you see the signal. Since it's an intersection and it has an arrow it means it's forbidden to stop or park to the right or left, depending on the arrow.

comment Why do (a lot of) people book airline ticket through agencies?
@Calchas I read that before, but... everything depends on the size of the business, not?

comment Why do (a lot of) people book airline ticket through agencies?
@reirab I can't tell either. I find cheaper tickets often in on line travel agents. I assume they must earn something. Not that long ago I knew a travel agent in Europe that simply bought tickets in advance since they could sell them later, when the overall prices raised, cheaper but still with good profit margins. I don't know the details though. I know this market changed a lot on the business model.

comment Where to find ferry flights and empty leg flights?
@GayotFow for now I am looking to know more about it. When I do I can evaluate if these fit any purpose to me or not. In principle they would be for Europe, but not necessarily. The price of something is different from its value. Cheap / expensive are relative depending on departure or destination and time you have.

comment What is the safest way to pack syrup on a long-haul flight?
You might want to add if you take it in hand luggage or not. If yes, quantities also matter.

comment Which options are there to travel from Budapest to Sarajevo by ground?
@Blackbird57 I don't know if you get that option. If I click the close I can see what the reason was. Yes, it is about the WANTA - This is not a question about the best route, or most touristic route. I need to get from A to B. I state that if there are stops in between it's fine.

Can someone that voted to close explain why this is off topic?
