You may want to specify which type o meditation center you want. Should it be affiliated with some religion?

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 cheapest way of geting from Rhodes to Turkey?
@Gagravarr yes, but I was expecting for someone to have another sugestion. The ferrys that I saw charge around 42euro both ways and 40 for one way tickets. Maybe there are other companies, maybe there are sailors looking for a crew. Maybe there are some LCC that I didnt find,

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.

comment Secondhand/antique book shops in Lisbon
@iyoossaev you're welcome :) . Some shops might be a bit more expensive since they sell those as "antiques" and not old books. The difference is very subtle sometimes ;) but mainly it's just the angle of selling. But that depends a lot of the shops. In any case you might get better prices in the markets.

comment How up to date is the Man from seat 61?
@MastaBaba I am wondering about the resource itself. Since it's a very interesting starting point I am interested in knowing how much I can rely on it without double checking other sources. About the specific route I am looking I will either ask here and/or try to inquire the train company if possible.

@AndréPeseur I don't understand your comment. If I wanted to know about a specific connection I would ask. I am interested in knowing about the resource itself.

comment Is it safe to check in a telescope in its original packaging?
@Calchas You're probably right, but it's not that costly to put the sticker. Maybe there are still some conscious luggage handlers out there :)

comment Is there a website or resource that list places in Europe where you can ride a steam locomotive?
I never thought this was so popular and with so many options. I changed the question to know of resources listing places.

comment How do airlines determine ticket prices?
@Liiam But still, there is software that does that, and there are persons that do it. What is your point?
