It's possible to have several visas in the same passport (e.g. an expired visa and a new one), even two unused visas with different periods of validity or back-to-back visas valid over a long period. On the other hand, I don't think consulates would generally issue overlapping visas but none of this is relevant to your travel plans. Whether you have one or ...

Unless the consulate specifically asked for a credit report (and I would be very surprised if they did), they won't actively seek this information (and they would have to pay for it, too). There is just not enough time and resources for this level of diligence on each visa application. In your case, since you are the spouse of an EU citizen and traveling ...

Exiting Schengen and reentering does not seem to be a requirement to make your stay valid. As other answers show it, it is possible to spend up to 90 days inside the Schengen area for tourism purpose even if you had a long-stay visa before. This is only experience and is not an authoritative source, but a friend (who does not need a visa for short stay) ...

I cannot provide a comprehensive answer or comparison between Schengen countries but I can add a few bits of relevant information: There are no firm rules at the EU level about that. Schengen countries honor each other's bans through a database called the SIS but they did not agree on the exact circumstances under which people should be banned. EU ...

I would definitely point out the visa part, especially if you are not a US citizen, it might be a bit tricky - the Schengen area has its own visa type (partly covers the EU, but not completely, for example Romania is part of EU but not part of the Schengen area, and Switzerland is the same story but the other way around), and Russia also. Might be also that ...

The device may or may not work, but in any case it is not a good idea to try to use it. As greyshade already mentioned, the print on the device states that it operates with 230 Volts at 50Hz, and the US power net does not provide that. Even a transformer would formally not help as the US power system operates on 60Hz, and a transformer will not change that. ...

The fourth line of text on the device (counting those two lines on the top right) says: EINGANG 230V~50Hz 4W where 'Eingang' is German for 'input', '230V~50Hz' means '230Volts AC at 50Hz' and 4W is the maximum power. Since the US mains have a voltage of 120V and a frequency of 60Hz, you will need a transformer, but then the device will work.

I seriously doubt there will be any work to unify the signs. The benefits are questionable (looking at the Wikipedia article you linked) - it is really easy to understand the signs in different countries - and the cost of changing all the signs in even one country is huge.

Traveling is a personal experience and the things you will need really depend on what you want to do. If you are going on holiday where you will be doing a bunch of things, I will pack all the necessary things I need at home and not worry too much about my trip. To cut to the chase, here's my list of essentials: Shades or sunglasses, don't forget them. If ...

Sea and party immediately reminds me of Barcelona. 2-3 weeks may be too long to stay just in Barcelona. You could take a train or drive to Marseille in under 5 hours and thereafter end your journey with the pleasant summer weather in Nice. Not a party place though.
