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 the Helsinki-Vantaa airport into Helsinki city centre?
I've actually never tried the Finnair shuttle myself, but it probably is a slightly more comfortable choice. Key advantage of 615 (besides being cheaper) is that you can continue your trip in the city with the same ticket.

comment LAX to Anaheim - how much slower is the Super Shuttle than a cab?
+1. This left me wondering: why can't you catch taxis on the street in Southern California? Are they not allowed to stop, or are there so few of them or what?

comment Is Norway significantly more expensive than other European destinations?
Btw, if anyone wonders why Norway is even more expensive than its Nordic neighbours, well, largely it stems from the fact that it is an oil-rich country, with one of the biggest reserves per capita.

comment What are important characteristics of a reliable and safe parabolic flight company?
@VMAtm: What do you mean by "safe aircraft" exactly? I'm not claiming the IL-76 would be particularly unsafe, but it has been involved in several incidents and accidents even in recent years.
