comment Where do I find really fast internet access in Auckland, New Zealand?
How big is "ton of data"? The city library has a daily traffic limit of 200MB per device as far as i know. It wont be fast, but you can read books while you wait :)

comment Cheap bus lines in Germany, something like Orangeways?
Deutsche Bahn prices are confusing, and you can get at least to 3 different prices for the same route, depending on which ticket you choose. You could try either the weekend ticket for EUR 44 or the saver fare for EUR 29 (up to 250km) if you don't find a bus.

Getting an insurance for it might be the tricky part if you don't rent it from an agency...

comment Is there any mobile app with public transportation routes for Vitória, Brazil?
What would you do with an offline version? It wouldn't be very useful if they couldn't update the timetables in case of some unexpected disruptions like accidents, roads closed etc.

You mean the car model is not guaranteed, even if you have a reservation?

comment Are these guys real or scammers? canadianvisaexpert.com
From what i have read in other forums, the fee they charge is only an "assessment fee". The fees for the official application are not even included.

comment How to access the internet during a road trip in the USA?
Some of the overland busses in the US have free wifi on board (and advertised on the outside of the bus). Check the schedules, then follow the bus as he leaves the station. Your Co-pilot and your passengers can now enjoy free wifi as long as you stay behind the bus. Cruise control is your friend :)

comment How to find cheap accomodation in Sydney
"late this/early next year" sounds like you're hitting the peak season between Christmas and New Year when everything is booked out. Don't expect cheap during this time of the year.

comment Safest way to send an international check or wire transfer?
@Karlson: In theory yes, but a quick search shows that quite a few people have been screwed by PayPal itself and lost a lot of money to them. I would not use "PayPal" and "secure payments" in the same sentence.

comment Crashing a rental car abroad
I disagree. If you have driven on the left side of the road, it's very hard to suddenly drive on the other side. Particular tricky are intersections when no other car is around. Quite often you find yourself turning into the wrong lane just out of habit. It took me at least 3 months to really get used to driving on the other side. It is a bit easier in a city, because then at least are plenty other cars around so you can just follow them.

comment Rent a car in United States (Las Vegas) paying cash
I am pretty sure you HAVE to pay by credit card so they can still charge you in case of any damage discovered after you brought the car back, or to pay for tickets the rental company receive for the time when you had the car. The credit card is the "insurance" that the company can still get money from you after you walked out of the door.

Buy a 3G stick for $50. More reliable and you don't have to walk across town each time to get internet access...

comment What are safe uses of non-potable water?
Agree with Rory. Tap water in most western countries is required to be acceptable for drinking, since it's also used for cooking. The bottled water they sell in supermarkets there is just a rip-off.

I'm sorry. Getting robbed at walmart is surely a more economic and interesting experience to recommend than staying at nice place... ಠ_ಠ

I have to disagree: Walmart car parks are possibly the worst places to stay overnight. link

comment What's a good way to generate solar electricity while driving?
@hippietrail: The engine might not "know" (and doesn't need to) via electronics how much energy is taken from the Alternator. However the more power you drain from the Alternator, the harder the engine has to work turning the Alternator, using more petrol. So yes, there is a (mechanical) feedback from the Alternator for the engine to work harder. I thought there was a physics.se to discus this very topic; no?
