comment Birth while traveling on-board an airplane
Their strictness is to attempt to reduce the number of "medical diversions" where a plane has to land early to take someone off for medical attention. Since most labours last much longer than most flights, in-air delivery must be extraordinarily rare

comment When and where do I have the highest chance of seeing auroras?
If they're dim, you can whistle to bring them closer. fortsmith.ca/cms/attractions/aurora-borealis-northern-lights But don't overdo it or you might breathe them, and die ece.gov.nt.ca/Divisions/kindergarten_g12/curriculum/…

You're right, sorry. I'll leave the answer though, because a searcher might be interested in the other direction

comment My passport will expire a few months after I start travelling - problem?
It's more complicated than that: for example the US demands 6 month validity, but certain countries (including Canada) they exempt. Without knowing both countries involved, it's very hard to answer the question.

it depends on where you are traveling to. Each country has its own rules.

comment What is traveling for work to Saudi Arabia like?
I'm not following you. As a woman, should I shake hands with a Saudi man? Point 2 says yes. Should I sit in the singles section when I am alone? Point 17 says yes. Should I avoid talking to other women? Point 5 says yes. I think if I actually went to Jeddah and followed this advice, I would regret it. You have edited to clarify about Saudi men vs Saudi women, but still assume the traveller is a man.

comment What is traveling for work to Saudi Arabia like?
I think this answer carried a giant implied "if you are a man" at the start of it. Perhaps you could clarify which pieces of advice apply to everyone and which only to men? For example a woman alone would go to the family side of a restaurant, no?
