comment What is the LONGEST Tour operated by travel companies?
I heard back in 2006 or so that companies were starting up some round-the-world cruises. I don't know if they actually did them, but that might be interesting to look into.

comment How safe is travelling on European rail networks for solo travellers?
Just a bit of my personally experience. I've ridden overnight trains quite a bit and never had anything bad happen. Worse thing that ever happened to me was someone nicked my rail pass and I had to pan-handle to get enough cash for a bus to the nearest ATM. I have, however, had several problems on trains in the good ol' USA.

comment Can I side-step discrimination against foreigners in Japan?
My advice: Find a place that is foreigner friendly. Generally, it doesn't matter where you are from. People that hate you because you're X will also hate Y. Unless of course someone says, "I hate Americans/Dutch/Ethiopians." In that case, just be "Canadian/German/Kenyan." If someone tells you foreigners aren't allowed here at all, or after a certain time, just go elsewhere. Japan is a nice place, but there is quite a bit of discrimination. Don't let that get you down.

comment Why exactly is it so important not to forget my towel when hitchhiking?
@Roflcoptr The better parts of American culture are sometimes lost in translation. Here (long... but a classic part of American cinema): youtube.com/watch?v=HFtxLh6Ij9c

I have some buddies who did it for 6,000US each. It was a lot of camping and eating of rice.

comment Which of these airports is the most interesting for a pilot?
I voted to reopen. I think it can be objectively answered via airport attractiveness or as the author mentioned, views. For example, I would say Lakla or Kensai with justifications.

Agree with the other edits, but 'quick' doesn't need to be changed.
