Though I've always lived in Finland, I have travelled a fair bit in Europe (about 28 countries*) and a little elsewhere too (namely in Cuba, Costa Rica, Panama, Argentina, Australia, Thailand, Mexico, and USA).

*If you count Georgia and the European part of Turkey as Europe :-)

Most of the time, I'm into a style of travel that involves backpacking / making few plans in advance / staying in hostels or couchsurfing.

Btw, Helsinki is cool and you should visit it.

comment How to get from Gatwick airport to Paddington?
I tend to agree with @Gagravarr. Btw, you might want to clarify "£66.50 this journey currently costs", which seems misleading. I mean, I paid about £20 last year for the Gatwick—Paddington trip (£14.40 to Victoria, plus tube).

comment How to collect Oneworld frequent flyer benefits from an RTW trip?
Paid RTW ticket. And yes, this was about the possibility of getting benefits (free or cheaper flights) from past RTW flights. Specificially, if it's possible to get benefits from Oneworld, instead of dealing with every individual airline. Well, seems like no. [For me this question certainly is resolved by now; I'll buy my next RTW trip normally with money just like that one back in 2011.]

comment Caribbean cruise for the backpacker?
Cool! But that's only about accommodation. Can you add some info/experiences about cruises or backpacker-friendly options for getting from one island to another?

comment Truth about Georgian tap water (aka. can you trust canidrinkthewater.org?)
Looks like canidrinkthewater.org is gone, so that part of the question is no longer relevant.
