Well it is over 150 miles. How long were you expecting it to take?

You could work out which Köppen climate classification you like, and then search Wikipedia for places that have it...

comment Compare train ticket prices in Britain
@trg but I can buy them on eg londonmidland.com, right? I keep harping on this point because I'm reasonably certain that it's a requirement of the post-privatisation landscape that anyone who can sell tickets must sell them all

Excellent definitive answer candidate, by the way. Maybe add a link to Seat61's effort ?

comment Compare train ticket prices in Britain
"There are occasionally discounted tickets sold by a train company on their own website and not available elsewhere" - this is a new one on me. I've seen specific discounts on tickets for travel on that TOC only, but I've never seen specific tickets. Eg Southern keep emailing me a 15% discount for their website, but I can always buy the same tickets through SWT, if I want.

weatherspark.com does location -> climate very nicely (IMO), but doesn't do a search in reverse, I think.

Hi Peter. Without some information from you on stuff such as interests, budget, activity level, etc etc, this question comes dangerously close to being off topic - see also The WANTA debate. Please edit your question to include details about what you want and what you need.

I'm really not sure how you're getting that idea from that map - Gare Montparnasse isn't even on that map!

comment Which city has the greatest religious diversity?
The question isn't about countries; it's about cities. So your information about India as a country is not relevant.

comment What should I do if I feel the pilot is guiding the flight in the wrong direction?
From IATA I learn there were "2.98 billion [passengers] carried in 2012". From Aviation Safety Network I learn there were 475 accident fatalities that year. 475 out of 3 billion makes for a pretty safe activity, I'd say.
