    how can I get to soobasan in khalkhal.

    I thought Soobatan and Khalkhal were both cities? Khalkhal is about a five hour drive from Tehran from memory. about 2 years ago

    Dallas to Havana, Cuba

    You're going to struggle with that. I don't think any direct route exists yet. Probably going to have to go Dallas - Mexico City/Cancun - Havana. Keep an eye on Skyscanner and CheapAir.com, as well as a couple of specific airlines like Aeromexico and Cubana. about 2 years ago

    There's heaps. Look into Skyscanner, Google Flights, and Kayak. There are some smaller ones out there as well like Hipmunk, Skiplagged, DoHop, Faregeek and Routehappy. about 2 years ago

    The Bridge Climb over Sydney Harbor has been highly recommended. I am a fairly fit 66 year old female. Is that doable?

    It's a 2 hour walk over 1.75km. If you think you're up to that you'll be fine! I think the oldest person to do it is 100, if they managed it I can't imagine you'd have too much trouble. about 2 years ago

    Is it safe to go and live in nigeria now? Because of the boko haram in different parts of naija...

    Without wanting to get into the Boko Haram question too deeply, I'll be here for hours otherwise, the broad brushstrokes are that Nigeria is divided into three large sections - the Muslim/Hausa North, the Christian/Igbo South, and the Yoruba West. Boko Haram have largely been operating out of the north, attacking Igbo Christians - a not dissimilar situation to how the Janjaweed operated in Darfur and Southern Sudan. Over the last couple of days it's begun to emerge that they seem to have a new leader who's willing to negotiate with the government - an encouraging sign. At the same time, Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buharihas, given his new army chiefs three months to defeat Boko Haram. Is it safe? Well... Depends. On where you want to live, what your work is, all kinds of things. If Nigeria, and surrounding governments, decide to amp up their action against Boko Haram then things could get nasty for a while. Since '09 you're looking at around 19,000 people killed. It's not an insignificant number, but it is out of a population of 170-odd million. I'd be careful of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau and Yobe, as well as pretty much all the Riverine areas. about 2 years ago

    Does Sabah, Malaysia have any nice and reasonable accommodation that is by the sea?

    What were you aiming to do in Sabah? It's a reasonably big state. Thinking of Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, somewhere else? about 2 years ago

    Has anyone trekked the Rwenzori Mountains? How difficult it is to summit Mount Margherita?

    The climb to the summit proper can be a bit tricky. It's a fixed rope climb, and you might need crampons up on the glacier. Generally classified as a difficult scramble. You'll want to be fit and have a decent head for heights, but if you've got them you'll be fine. about 2 years ago
