Right next to Piedmont is Lombardy, where you'll also find many paddy fields. Indeed the province of Pavia and the geographical area known as Lomellina contain the most productive rice farmlands in Italy, according to this site (in Italian). Seeing the paddy fields is easy: all you have to do is drive along the A7 from Milan to Serravalle (no point going ...

I would call ahead before bringing Euro notes into a random branch on a non-major USA bank. I see Bank of America accepts foreign currency at full-service branches. A small local bank, only at the two largest offices. The USA is an exception to the general rule that you do best to get Country X's currency while in Country X. The rates are bad, and the fees ...

Best bet is to close out the German account and then deposit the Euros in your USA account. Most major US banks will accept deposits in Euros. You can exchange them at the Dallas airport, but airport rates are usually pretty poor in the USA. You could buy dollars in Europe, but again buying is never the best rate. You could use the ATM card, but that ...

Passing (as being described by ...

To drive a motor cycle in Europe you need a motor cycle driving license, and an International Driving Permit, which is a translation of your Chinese license. Your friend might have rented a moped or scooter, which is 50 cc maximum and does not require a motor license but which you can drive with any driving license as well as with a special '50 cc max' ...

The "gotchas" are mainly centered around import costs. The price of shipping won't be cheap, but will be determined by a couple different factors: distance, type of vehicle, time of year, company, etc. The other main thing to look out for are import taxes. They can vary quite a bit between countries and significantly affect the overall cost. I've worked ...

In the UK, there are exchange companies that will sell you overseas money with the option to pay a small charge so they will buy it back at the same rate. I therefore get a lot more cash then I would do so otherwise, on the last day of the trip, I count up my cash and get enough out of a local ATM (at a much better rate) so that I can exchange back nearly ...
