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 Do I need an ESTA for changing airplanes in Puerto Rico?
Not exactly a duplicate imho. In most places in the world you don't need anything for just changing planes (never leaving airport transit area). PR may be different as it's US territory. Good question.

comment How to get from Gatwick airport to Paddington?
I didn't find it too difficult at all to navigate the tube with a backpack and a carry-on size suitcase. Both company office and hotel being located next to Paddington station is one reason to go there. :)

comment How to get from Gatwick airport to Paddington?
Sorry for delay. One correction: it is possible to buy one ticket for both the train & tube, according to personnel at Gatwick airport train station. (At that point I'd already purchased train-only ticket from a vending machine, so I didn't try it myself.) Other than that, accepted.

comment Truth about Georgian tap water (aka. can you trust canidrinkthewater.org?)
Hmm, I wonder why my experience in Tbilisi was so different: people at the hostel were drinking tap water and I didn't hear of any problems due to that. I suspect there's a lot of regional variation in Georgian water quality.
