as Ivan said did you book both flights together because as specified in an other post and also on this website if it is not the case then it becomes your problem and you won't have any right to pretend to any kind of compensation: My connecting flights were booked separately. If my first flight is cancelled am I entitled to a refund for my other ...

As vclaw said you can use OpenStreetMap Data to find postboxes. An easy way to achieve this would be to use the Overpass API to download a GPX file and to add this to you GPSr. I prepared a sample query for Vienna and postboxes here. As you can see, you can export the data in different formats, one of them is GPX. Change the coordinates for other cities ...

There are a lot of postboxes and post offices mapped in OpenStreetMap. Coverage and accuracy may vary, but I think it is generally pretty good for most of Western Europe. Considering just how many postboxes there are, and how spread out they can be in rural areas, there will be some missing from OSM. Depending on what sort of GPS device you are using, you ...

No special visa for the purpose of studying required. Of course, you're not able to get a job and work officially. The purpose of a visa is necessary in the case of a long-term (over 90 days) visa. From my experience, I had a 90-day EU visa and was able to visit a 6-week intensive language course. After that I was travelling to EU several times without the ...

One thing visa are for is to ensure people do not overstay and restrict the frame of the stay. This is linked to the probability of people returning to their country after the stay. I suppose countries are rated by the risk of not returning to it. Having a residence permit in a country with lower risk most likely matters in the visa requirements. It ...

There is a bit of confusion here because the rules are not simple: If you have a simple US visa or are returning from one, you can transit (airside) in a Schengen airport even if citizens from your country usually need to get an airport transit visa (with some limits regarding connection times and other details). That's article 3(5) (c) of the Schengen ...
