Note that many Western Europeans will eat a "Ready Meal" rather than going out for food, if they are trying to avoid cooking but save money. Eating out tends to be relatively expensive: remember that wages, taxes and energy prices in Western Europe don't really lend themselves to cheap food. Most Ready Meals are pre-prepared and can be cooked in under 5 ...

As the poop drops in the commode it splashes dirty water on the private parts from the commode below which normally doesn't happen in an Indian toilet.... Squatting while ...

You can often rent snow chains from automobile clubs (e.g. ADAC in Germany, or ÖAMTC in Austria). So if you know that you will not need them again it might be cheaper to rent than to buy. This assumes of course that you will return in order to give them back.

In Germany, it's only mandatory to have winter tires (or all-season tires with the “M+S” symbol) if there is snow or ice on the road, not during the whole winter season. In France, there is no general obligation to have winter tires but on some (mountain) roads snow chains or winter tires might be mandatory in case of snow (in this case there would be a ...

If you have such a license plate, you will need have a country-identifying sticker if driving abroad with that car. Someone already posted a Wikipedia link to the Vienna conventions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vienna_Convention_on_Road_Traffic It is quite clearly stated (in this summary) that "A distinguishing sign of the country of registration must be ...

I also found this tool from Continental, allowing you to mouse-hover over different countries to check for regulation.

EU Licence Plates The EU countries now have new registration plates incorporating the country code and the EU flag on the left. This voids the need for the former oval sticker, enforced by the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic. Quoting from the "Council Regulation (EC) No 2411/98 of 3 November 1998 on the recognition in intra-Community traffic of the ...

I think that you don't need such a sticker in Europe if the sign of the country is incorporated into the registration plate. The Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, Article 37 says: Every motor vehicle in international traffic shall display at the rear, in addition to its registration number, the distinguishing sign of the State in which it is ...

There is no common legal standard and in most countries also no common obligation to have them with you - provided that you do not drive on a road that explicitly requires them. Those however are normally only mountain passes, not highways. There is generally a rule that you are only allowed to drive with chains on 100% snow-covered roads so you do not ...

Not anymore. Now you'd have to sell a blue auto... Nowadays you can buy a heck of jeans of various quality everywhere, from marketplaces to supermarkets. The prices in, for example, Poland, are much lower than in Germany, so you'd have more luck selling your jeans in Germany... Before the 1990s the situation was completely different. Almost everything was ...

The only airline with regular scheduled flights to the Faroe Islands is Atlantic Airways, the flag carrier. There are daily flights to/from Copenhagen and less frequently to/from Keflavik, Bergen and Billund. However, they are probably already fully booked for the days near the eclipse ... Your best bet may be to find a dedicated eclipse tour with a ...

Wikipedia reports that the system is currently in use in Germany, the Netherlands and in the UK. So your TSA-locked luggage can possibly be opened with the master key/code at Heathrow. But like Mark and Rory explained, I am not aware of any requirement to leave your luggage open (or to use a special system to make sure it can be opened for inspection) so a ...

The key limit is three months. It has nothing to do with Schengen but is part of general EU law. As such, it also applies outside the Schengen area (i.e. to the UK, Ireland, Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia – and to Switzerland through a distinct agreement that was implemented even before the country became part of the Schengen area). Even in countries ...

In general as a EEA national, you have the right to stay in all EEA countries, no matter how long if fulfilling certain conditions. However some countries ask you to report your stay, even if it is shorter than 3 months. As a general rule in the EU the same requirements apply to citizens of those countries as well. These countries according to the EU job ...

A T2 entry clearance (or colloquially, visa) is not recognized outside of the UK. Instead, the person's nationality is used as the determining factor. You wrote that you are Turkish... Turkish nationals are listed in the EU Council Regulation (EC) No 539/2001 as requiring a visa to enter the Schengen zone. See ...
