comment Iceland over Christmas period
Thanks for a detailed answer! Coming back to point (1), did I understand correctly that if the weather is favourable then you are guaranteed to see the northern lights? What time of night does it usually happen (e.g. hour)?

comment Are there any cafes serving breakfast in Bakewell / Peak District that are open around 8 AM on Sundays?
After checking in person, I can confirm that all the cafe's seem to open at 9:00 AM. There is quite a few of them, so everyone should find something suitable.

comment What's the preferable option to book a flight?
@AnkurBanerjee, true, but Opodo charged me £25pp on top. I did clarify it with them, and this is their fee for calling the airline basically.

What kind of information are you expecting to find in this guide that is not in the normal guidebooks?

comment What's the preferable option to book a flight?
@fog, you would most probably get the same terms and conditions from the airline directly. Don't stress too much about it though, just enjoy your trip!

comment What's the preferable option to book a flight?
@fog, you might be fine then! I definitely had to pay something like £25 per person to Opodo a few years ago. More annoyingly, this was not covered by the travel insurance, because they only covered cancellation and not associated agency fees...

comment Safety tips when leaving luggage and papers behind
Never consult a map in public? I don't think this particular advice is practical. Am I supposed to learn the map and guidebook by heart before setting out? I am not Jason Bourne :)

comment Least stressful method of travelling around Paris
Re. your example with London, it is actually much better to get an prepaid Oyster card - the amount they will charge you daily is capped at the daily travel card rate. So you will never spend more than the daily travel card price.

Aussies already have electronic visas (only for some nationalities). Probably other nations will follow...

comment Hong Kong Airport - restricted/non-restricted areas
You can do it, yes. You will just get a stamp in your passport. You just need to reserve enough time to get back through security.
