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.

comment What would a month holiday to Australia from Amsterdam/Brussels roughly cost to a family of four?
Also budget wise, you should decide what you want to see before you buy your flight tickets - it is often much cheaper to buy all the internal flights together with the intercontinental ones.

comment What would a month holiday to Australia from Amsterdam/Brussels roughly cost to a family of four?
It really depends on what you want to do I guess. (1) you might want to book some internal flights, because it is not fun to drive thousands of km in a desert with kids (2) there are basically no historical things to see in Australia, there are many "attractions", but these seem rather expensive.

Thanks for the details! How can I get to the other venues using public transport? Do you know if they offer bouldering/sport climbing/both?

In Poland money exchange offices will often give you better exchange rate than a credit card.

comment What is the cheapest way to get tickets for weekly scheduled flights?
I don't think there are any readily available options, but you have a fair chance to negotiate something with the airline. It would help if you had a alternative though.

comment How to buy for ticket from Heathrow terminal 5 to Canterbury east train station?
I don't think the places are numbered on these local trains. If you manage to squeeze in and physically get on the train then it will be fine. Also I am sure it will be half empty at this time.
