It certainly exists in "various EU regions", however, locations to buy it directly won't be easy to find. Some food wholesalers and various companies in the chemical field are probably your best bet. Some (not all) of the ones producing it are willing to sell small amounts directly on-site. However, finding a local company and calling first would be ...

A quick google search found me an 'what is on' magic site. And in the list there I recognized a show in London, which was recently mentioned on BBC TV. Here is a link to a booking site where you can book tickets for that show. An other way in might be finding a magician you would like to see and go to his/her website and see where they perform. Like the ...

Speaking for France, The majority of payment cards that are issued are debit cards. Car rental agencies would be quickly out of business if they refused them.

Adding to Henning Makholm's answer, which gives the EU directive, that directive is not necessarily helpful if the UK interprets it poorly. Here's what the UK has to say on the matter, according to the guidance on EEA nationals: EUN1.13 Alternative evidence of nationality and identity Regulation 29A allows ECOs to accept alternative evidence of ...

In principle you should be able to use your expired passport as evidence that you're a citizen of Portugal and therefore enjoy free movement within the EU. Directive 2004/38/EC states in article 5: Where a Union citizen, or a family member who is not a national of a Member State, does not have the necessary travel documents or, if required, the ...

Probably a question of insurances. Major credit cards (visa, MC, AMEX) are internationally recognized compared to your local bank debit card. (after a quick google regarding US rental with a debit card) When renting with a debit card, most agencies will do a credit check and that might not be possible when renting in Europe (even from a international ...

A non-visa national, such as Argentine nationals, can pass in and out of the zone as long as the 90/180 rule is observed AND the person satisfies the landing interview with a valid premise. As a general rule, all interaction with border officials is governed by personal impact and articulation skills (along with demonstrating an understanding of the rules), ...

As for your first question: There's no requirement to have an Austrian number in order to connect to WiFs - at least at all of the places in Austria I've been to recently. I'm connecting without trouble with a UK number. I would expect that any international SIM would work, as there's nothing that ties WiFi with the SIM card. As for your second question, ...

While in theory there may be some sort of a tax levied on a used projector, in practice nobody is going to care about it even if the customs inspector stops your friend. A single used projector is simply too low of a value for the inspection to bother. If you want to be on the safe side, have your friend declare it. At the very most he will have to pay 5% ...

In early January 2016, I was flying from France to The Netherlands (so an intra-Schengen flight), as as a non-EU citizen, had my passport checked when leaving France, and stamped with a Schengen exit stamp. I was a bit confused what happened, so didn't have time to ask why this happened. In any case, I left the Schengen area from The Netherlands on a ...

The location is here on google maps. The name is Il porticciolo di Nervi. A page with an alternate image can be seen on ilmeteo.it. The location is near to Genoa. How I found it. I came to the same conclusion as @mts that it was South facing. It looked like nobody was around with the sun fairly low and shadows cast from the East. There was also a green ...

The long way around: It may be possible to get to Israel overland from Europe via a ridiculously circuitous route that avoids the current (2016) trouble spots in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and Saharan Africa. The first step is to get to Iran, by one of the following routes: From mainland Europe to Turkey, thence west to Iran, crossing the border into Iran ...

According to their website, in 2016 Salamis Cruise Lines operates an occasional roundtrip cruise from Limassol, Cyprus to Haifa, Israel and back. You would need to contact them to see exactly what happens if you decided not to get back on the ship (assuming you want to visit Israel for more than a day), and it's probably substantially more expensive than ...

Especially if your visa is single-entry, using it for a completely different purpose than the one you applied for will be risky. The visa is legally valid for entering Spain, but the border guards will (as they are supposed to) question you about your plans when you enter, and that's when you're at risk of getting the visa annulled pursuant to the Visa Code,...

If your visa is only valid for Germany, and is only valid for one entry - then you will need to apply for a different visa. Here is a picture of what a visa sticker looks like (from this page), which is annotated by me: This is the area for which your visa is valid. If it says "Schengen Staten" (as in the picture), then it is valid for the entire ...

The accepted answer is not working anymore as the city night line trains are taken out of the timetables. So now your best bet will be to travel fast by day and/or travel by ferry at night. Seat 61 suggests that you might use the Harwich to Hook of Holland ferry overnight, taking a day train to Hamburg, take a train the next day via Copenhagen to Stockholm ...

According to the European Aviation Safety Agency, a FAQ on child car seats for flights states the following: Regarding the use of a car seat as an acceptable child restraint device, this is regulated under the Regulation on Air Operations, through Annex IV (Part CAT), specifically CAT.IDE.A.205. The basis for the provision on child restraint ...

This answer is assuming you have a through ticket from St. Pancras to your final destination in France/Belgium/Germany/whereever. I am not certain whether this also applies to a journey made up of two separate tickets unrelated to each other. For trains that operate within the European Union under the directive 95/18/EC (that is basically any train except ...

At the time of writing all the countries you list (UK - France - Belgium - Netherlands - Germany - Austria - Hungary - Romania) are part of the EU. This means that the regulations for travelling with pets are uniform amongst them. Since you are travelling with less than 5 animals you will have to follow the EU rules for non-commercial movement. Therefore, ...

The best I can recommend to you is to become a member of the German Alpine Club (Deutscher Alpenverein, DAV) or the Austrian Alpine Club (├ľAV, all links in German). Membership costs varies depending on the "Sektion" you choose to become a member of (you can choose freely and I know many people who choose one purely based on cost) but is in the range of EUR50 ...

I just noticed that you originally asked about EU countries in general, and not only about the Schengen area. You have to distinguish between different situations. Inside the Schengen area I doubt it's possible to get a stamp when traveling between Schengen countries. I cannot guarantee that it never ever happens and I realize it's not a very satisfying ...

I am a non-EU non-UK citizen who has traveled within the Schengen zone. I have stamps in my passport, but these the entry/exit stamps at the airport. I have made two journeys - which has resulted in 4 stamps in my passport. During my transits within the zone, I was never asked for my passport; as that's part of the entire Schengen concept - visa free ...
