comment Does condition 8115 mean you can't check your work email?
@badp: In that case you should mention in the question, that they've got business visas, not tourist ones.

@HaLaBi: also seems that working remotely full-time for employer outside of Australia would be illegal too: "An applicant who wishes to continue to work online, basically full-time may be of concern in terms of the genuine visitor requirement and should be considered carefully."

@HaLaBi: not necessarily, for example if you'd travel as consultant to work with client on behalf of your company, you'd wouldn't find job locally in Australia, but you'd be still working in Australia. This is legal gray issue, AFAIK, generally not acted upon. Another similarly gray-zone example are mother-companies sending their representatives/auditors/etc to local subsidiaries.

comment Is it safe to visit Peru?
Safety is always relative. Generally as a European I'd consider both US and Peru unsafe. OTOH, San Francisco area (OP's location) - 13 murders per 100K, Peru - 10 murders per 100K.

comment How can roadside cafe quality be measured in Greece or Turkey?
Depends on your definition of "quality", there seems to be correlation with how elaborated the food is, but a simple grilled shashlik served with bread and cabbage salad might be better quality, than some more elaborated food.

For sure safer than US, where US citizens actually do get kidnapped.

AFAIK, smile is allowed, as long as it's not grinning. Rule of thumb is that the mouth cannot be open.

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
From financial point of view it's logical that they'd charge more for dorms rooms where they discriminate against big part of potential clients, be it "women-only", "whites-only", "muslim-only" or whatever. OTOH, for example in Europe "women-only" rooms would be either illegal or in the grey zone. You cannot discriminate based on sex.

comment Can I put Kensington lock in my hand luggage?
Problem in Poland is that until recently security screening in international airports was handled by the Border Guard. But since 2013 it's no longer their duty, thus airports had to hire private security contractors. Their training (or lack of thereof) leaves much to be desired.
