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 Does AirBaltic require you to print boarding pass before arriving at airport to avoid extra costs?
Ah, good point. They indeed use a QR reader (so forget my previous comment). From airBaltic mobile check-in FAQs: "Any mobile phone with an enabled internet connection (3G/4G/Wi-Fi) can be used to check in online. The device should be able to display a full size mobile boarding pass (QR code)."

The mobile site (airbalticmobi.com) looks like it works even on some crappier devices ("dumb phones" with simple web browser). If in doubt, just try it with your device when online checkin becomes possible about two days before the flight. In case it doesn't work, do online checkin on a computer and get the boarding pass at airport check-in desk (or print it yourself).

got a twitter reply: If you've checked in online, you can get a boarding pass at the check-in desk free of charge.

Ryanair, at least when I last used it some years ago. Probably some other low-cost carriers.

(Accidentally created [air-baltic] tag with hyphen, though it should be [airbaltic]. Can someone rename it, because I can't?)

revised How to get from Buenos Aires to Santiago de Chile by land
Update all prices for Nov 2014. Switch to using USD more because of heavy $AR inflation.

revised What is the most time and cost efficient way to get from Buenos Aires to Iguazu falls?
Update prices and connection details for 2014. Add prices in USD because $AR figures get out of date fast due to inflation.

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.]
