comment Can you tell a cabbie which route to take?
@Karlson In NYC, the only fixed price airport route is between JFK and Manhattan. To other boroughs or other airports is by meter (unless you're going outside city limits, in which case you negotiate a fixed fare in advance). nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/passenger/taxicab_rate.shtml

comment How to find farm type stays / internships / volunteering other than via WWOOF?
Thanks for asking this as a separate question. I don't have any information about this type of program other than WWOOF, so I'm definitely interested if anyone else can share!

comment How to get from Bodrum to Datça when ferry isn't running?
You mention that the ferry will probably be available in September, but I'm going in October - is there any way to confirm whether the ferries will run then? If I take a bus from Marmaris or Mugla, is it necessary to book in advance at that time of year?

comment Are there small group day trips from NYC to Boston?
Yup, that works, just wanted to make sure I was understanding you properly. Would you be willing to consider separate tours in New York & Boston (as opposed to one tour guide who arranged the whole thing), or is the convenience of one planner essential?

comment Are there small group day trips from NYC to Boston?
Are you looking for a trip that includes transportation and all of your activities? Or just transportation? Or just a guide in Boston? Some more details would be helpful, as there are a lot of transit options, and it's easy to put together your own itinerary for Boston.

comment What's the most comfortable way to travel with 2 backpacks or bags and a DSLR camera?
I also have a Deuter pack with the extra breathing room. It's awesome. +1 for a pretty comprehensive list of options.

comment What is the shortest commercial passenger flight (with a flight number) in the world?
@Doc the Guinness Book of Records stamp in the screenshot says "shortest scheduled flight" and the Wikipedia excerpt has the flight number.

comment What can I use instead of a corkscrew?
+1 for just buying wine with screw tops. I just got back from South Africa, and almost every bottle I encountered was screw top. There are wine traditionalists who probably abhor that, but it's definitely becoming more common.
