comment How can I travel flexibly around the US?
I also cast a reopen vote. The marked duplicate is quite similar and possible helpful, but in no way does it answer this specific question and neither is the question the same at all.

However, it seems that there is valuable information available in the blog. @MonacoAddit: could you please summarize this info in your answer here?

comment Why do Indian citizens need many visas?
Because a lot of nationalities need an expensive visa to enter India. Payback time!

They just said that they're sorry and they will try to avoid it in future.

comment Is it usual to leave luggage out in the rain at an airport?
Unfortunately this seems to be at least not unusual. My backpack was once on the top of a luggage truck and right before it could be loaded into the aircraft, they had to stop, since a major thunderstorm hit Buenos Aires. We had to wait at the airport for a couple of hours and my luggage was still out there. When I finally got it back a 13 hours flight later, everything in my backpack was socking wet. I was really pissed off and complained about it.

comment Where is this picture taken from (in Taiwan)?
So what's the problem? It seems that TinEye is better in this case than Google.

How does this answer the question? I can't find a way to search for more than two places.

comment How much time should I allow for getting a Swiss Railways “Junior Travelcard” at Zurich Airport?
That's very difficult to answer. If seen queues there that looked insane, but on other times, the counters were almost deserted.

comment Hiking trip without car in Central Europe?
What kind of hiking are you interested in? Mountains or shouldn't their be a lot of altitude differences? What do you want to see? Glaciers? Lakes? Villages? Cities? Castles?

@nl-x I know. What made you think that I might have missed that?

@AdityaSomani Yes, it was a domestic flight. I thought it's because of religious reasons or things like that.

comment Is it legal to drink your own alcohol onboard a plane over international waters?
Strange, that's the first time I even hear that you might not be allowed to do so. Obviously, if the airline does not permit to drink alcohol on their flights, e.g. Air India, then you shouldn't do that. But other airlines, e.g. Swiss even gives you alcohol for free on their flights, so then I should be able to also bring my own alcohol. At least I always thought that way.
