comment Who is at fault in this scenario?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about travel but about a car accident.

comment Romantic destination in north america
rather than "of these hundreds or thousands of cities, which are romantic?" why not find some candidates and ask if they're vibrant, near nature, full of history, and so on? (This is likely to require several questions.) As written this is just too broad and opinion-seeking.

comment What makes vaccinations “recommended”? (for Philippines)
Call your family doctor for this advice. They may refer you to a specialized "vaccination clinic" that can recommend and perform the vaccinations. Since such clinics specialize in the subject, they generally give the vest advice. The list you have above is essentially the list the CDC gives for every country in the world, so it's rather information-free. See for example wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/… which differs only in the omission of Typhoid.

comment Meaning of the “Have you ever been refused entry or deported from any country, including Singapore?” question
When you are turned away you need to ask if you are being denied entry. Often when people are not allowed into Canada they are "allowed to withdraw their application" which means they can truthfully say no, they have not been denied. The people who refused your visa can tell you if that constituted denying you entry.

comment US visa from Bangkok, Thailand and wish to visit another country
Canada is not a European country. Not that it's relevant, since I don't any countries that will let you in with a visa for the US, but can you edit so that the body and title don't contradict each other?

comment Do electronics bought airside have to be fully charged?
I believe the rule is they need to be charged to take them through security. If you buy them after security, this is not an issue. However, if you have a connection that might require you to clear security again, you should plan how to charge them before that time.

comment Cruising with an infant
equipped how? Is your issue where the baby will sleep? Do you want to know if they will provide food or are you nursing? Do you need facilities to wash diapers? Please elaborate on what you need to know about the ship.

comment Is there a resource for crime statistics in Spain - especially robbery
the question specifically asks for statistics, not personal experience of one individual. When you have a little more reputation you can add this sort of response as a comment.

comment Can I really finance a Silk Road trip, from India to the UK, by importing and selling the motorcycle?
@Gagravarr duties could be significant, but running costs, fuel, and places to stay over the trip would presumably be covered by the $10,000 price difference postulated in the question. Even if the duty is 30% of the UK value, if the price difference is real there is certainly room to cover a lot of expenses.

comment How much money do I need to show I have to visit the UK from Egpyt?
you know the reason they ask for 6 months worth is so you can't just temporarily deposit however you much think they want to see? So are you asking us what numbers to forge onto your five-months-ago statements? Your statements are what they are; send them and see if you're approved.

comment How can I estimate how much sunscreen I need to pack?
I think 12 hours a day in a bikini is an overestimate:-)

comment How can I estimate how much sunscreen I need to pack?
@MeNoTalk I disagree. Obviously a usage in ml or oz is fine for an answer; I can divide to get number of tubes. The tube that ran out in the Bahamas was opened last summer so you learn nothing from the fact it ran out. As for average hours in the sun and number of days spent in the sun vs not, those are the heuristics I refer to when I say there's more to this than how much sunscreen we use in a single application. Sure, people will vary, but I am trying to work all this out. I don't know yet, having not done such a trip before, those sorts of things.

comment How can I estimate how much sunscreen I need to pack?
@RoryAlsop I don't go out in the sun for days on end, so I never noticed my rate of consumption. I buy it when I see it, and there's always lots around. Using up a tube while away was a new experience and one I don't want to repeat

comment Can I take a bicycle when boarding a VIA Rail train at a small (flag) stop?
@Huangism I disagree. The web site talks about whether the train has checked baggage service (eg a baggage car) not the station - you're the one concluding it depends on the station and I'm asking you where you see anything to indicate that.

comment Is a regulation baggie required for carryon liquids in Toronto Pearson Airport?
it's not a baggie, @verve, it's a thing with a zipper that is opaque on one side and clear on the other. It might be roughly a litre, but I don't think they care.

comment How much can I claim in damages for a missed connection, on an EU airline flying through the EU?
My credit cards provide a benefit that covers this. Check your coverage because it will be much easier than dealing with an airline you're already irritated with.

comment Immigration rules when connecting though Toronto Pearson to another Canadian airport
Must have either been two planes, or not enough customs staff. I got Nexus so I don't wait any more, unless I'm traveling with a non Nexus companion. Even then 20 minutes has been my longest wait (though it often feels a whole lot longer.)
