comment How to use sink with separate hot/cold taps?
Great question! When I stumbled into these weird things in the UK, my reaction was "WTF? Worst usability ever." You either get too hot or cold water, and the taps were too far apart to use both simultaneously...

Some organising and formatting; e.g. putting prices under each section (air/train/bus). Hope you don't mind!

comment What is the connecting time to consider for International to International Transfers in US Airports?
Oh yeah, @Laura Ψ's answer has a very good point about checking in luggage! (Again, this wasn't an issue for me, as I travelled with hand luggage only. :-)

comment What's the absolute cheapest accommodation in Ioannina Greece?
I did some searching on CS while in Ioannina, and I think there were relatively few active users there. But you should try, of course, at least if you know a few days earlier you're going there. (In my case, I didn't try to get last minute couch; just contacted some people about going for drinks – got even some replies but that particular night was no good for them and next day I was off to Albania.)

comment Getting from Skövde to Jönköping?
Oh, prices quoted are one-way. I didn't check if buying a two-way ticket gets you a discount.

comment Sydney–Melbourne by other means than flying
Here's some info I came up with. For Greyhound, travel time is 12h (night) / 14h (day) for direct buses, according to their website. For CountryLink trains, it's either 10h 55m (night) or 11h 14m (day). (Pretty slow, for a train! I guess one reason is that the rail line is 960 km long while shortest road distance is 870 km.) By plane, according to my rough estimate, it could be 1.25-1.5 h flight time + ~1-2 h to/from airport by shuttle + 0.5-1h waiting = 3 to 4.5 hours total.

Thanks! One thing I was still wondering after reading this: what's the approximate travel time (downtown to downtown) for each option?

Nice, thanks! Any idea how much a trip w/ sleeping berth would generally cost? What are they like? If booking one place, you'd share a small cabin with another passenger?

(Also, I understand OP's frustration, but I'm not sure if this is a useful, answerable travel question per se.)
