comment What do you do when you're on-the-road and you cannot shower?
Pro-tip if you are a man and therefore don't carry anti-bacterial handwash around: Vodka has pretty much the same effect :)

If the water is freezing then you use the plug, let some cold water in and add some hot water from the kettle until the temperature is ok. Did you never go camping?

comment What are the fake police checkpoints in Mexico looking for?
Please don't call them "Fake Police" - "Freelance Police" is the preferred term!

they give you the false impression that the airline would actually care about your luggage. Search "baggage handler" on youtube :|

comment How does the scuba diving compare between Coffs Harbour and Byron Bay?
Disagree on the price. Byron bay is a tourist trap and get's much more backpackers and travellers, and everything i bought there (accommodation, food, tours) was way more expensive than in Coffs Harbor.

comment Backpacking in Europe for the first time
You're living on the edge, Mark :) I would not expect to find a 20 EUR hostel in each town. Even if so, all the cheap rooms might be booked out; especially during high season.

comment Car rental vs. buying a car for 1 month
Yeah; i think the insurance and registration when buying would be a dealbreaker for me. Didn't expect it to be so difficult; could get a car, registration and insurance done in AUS and NZ in 3h an then i'm on the road...

comment How can I travel between US towns without flying
I don't think you would save on hotels. The average hotel costs about $60-100/night, but an RV will probably cost you $150/day. Plus you don't want to drive a RV inside the city where parking is a nightmare.

comment Getting from the Frankfurt-Hahn airport to Saarbrücken (Germany)
He is right about the "cheap flights" option into Frankfurt-Hahn. It's certainly not so cheap anymore if you also factor in the price for the other required transport options that get you where you really want to go; plus it usually takes you much longer than taking the direct route.

comment Is all of Afghanistan dangerous for travellers?
i wouldn't use this picture to promote travels to Afghanistan, because quite honest, it looks as charming and inviting as an stone quarry or open pit coal mine. Just sayin'...

comment Are there any guarded parking lots anywhere in or near Berlin, Germany?
@Gilles: there is no minimum wage in germany; but yeah, of course they try to keep it as cheap as possible and use cameras and a single guy watching ~40 monitors :|

comment TrueCrypt Volumes: Will it cause any trouble?
What are the chances? At least half the people boarding planes carry a laptop, and unless they have a bad day or you look very suspicious they wont care about you. Hint: wear a suit and a tie or something that makes you look like you are important or have money, and you are much less likely to get any hassle.
