comment What is the best way to travel from IST to Istanbul?
if you have a layover and are planning a little self-guided touring, your best bet may be the free tour the airport provides. It's well described in other Istanbul questions here.

comment I am a UK state pensioner (dual citizenship) now living in Canada returning for a 3 week visit to UK - will NHS cover me?
same reason I do - born in the UK, lived in Canada since 1969, use a Canadian passport for everything. Perfectly legit.

comment Park accessible by public transport in Eastern Canada in October
I didn't even read the column headings because I thought the bus only served Algonquin. It's great news for me that it also serves Killarney though it's a bummer you can't use it for an October Algonquin hike.

Go to the Cook Islands! One way awards and pay for the one-ways back.

comment What to do with a small number of United miles, starting in New Zealand?
Most frequent flier miles have two kinds of expiry: your entire balance will go if you have no activity on a year, for example, or these particular miles will expire 8 years after you earn them. If you are facing the first, just earning some more miles will keep these alive long enough for you to add some more with the aim of earning a particular reward.

comment What hotels will prepare dinner as specified by the customer?
I'm not sure what the question is - do you want to order dinner at non-dinner times, or control precisely what food is in your dinner?
