Yes, he probably can - with leeway for the fact sometimes some guards may refuse (the probably is 'more yesses than noes', not 'never no'). Higher chances of getting through happen with food leaning towards solid, visible, identifiable. My parents travel a lot, and often carry homemade food for the same reasons (health, preference, vegetarian). They have ...

I have found this post about it. It is in French but I'll translate the general idea behind it : http://www.disneylandparis.fr/faq/restaurants/alimentation-boissons-exterieur/ So it isn't allowed to bring with you large bags full of food to organize a group picnic inside the park. They don't explicitly say that it is allowed to bring some water or ...

It sounds like you're looking for raclette: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raclette The dish originates from the Swiss canton of Valais, not far from Geneva, which means the dish is quite common there. For the locals it's a winter dish, but there are quite a few (somewhat touristy) restaurants that serve it all year round, like this: http://www....

There are "extra" meals so you can certainly ask. If you are say, a first class passenger, the extra meal will be given to you almost as a matter of course if requested. You have "first dibs" on this (and other) privileges. If you are "coach" class, your request will be granted more often than not. A problem might arise if first class, or other coach ...

Nothing wrong with asking - treating cabin crew as humans (be nice, be polite, don't stress them if you see they are busy, wait for your turn) will get you a long way. You'd be amazed what is possible. One nice passenger offsets many rude ones - be the nice one!

A cabin crew member here... In general, flight attendants will be happy to give you the extra meal after the service is done, because they know it will be thrown after landing anyway. Out of experience, there are always some extra meals, at least one or two. Sometimes passengers simply do not take a meal, some other times there's just an extra meal or two ...

Yes you can ask. And I have successfully asked for extra food in the past (i.e. over the last five years). I also typically ask for two beverages and never had that refused. Of course they have no obligation to give you extra food but on a full service airline they are usually happy to. (Since you mention a first meal I assume you are on a full service ...

I live in Lima, Peru and you can easily find any kind of specialties in Lima from the Andes and also from the jungle. I would suggest you ask in your hotel and emphasize the fact that you are looking for a normal restaurant and not a top one, also you can go to markets that are on the street where they sell menus for a really cheap price however I doubt you ...

According to La Fourchette, which is a website where you can find all the restaurants in France, the only Vegan restaurant in the 5th arrondissement of Paris is "Le Puits de Légumes". I leave it to you to use La Fourchette to find others! Around the 5th, you have the 6th, the 4th and the 13th arrondissements.

Short answer to your question: Can one easily find highland specialties in the capital ? Yes. Explanation: Perú is well known, apart from Cuzco, for it's cuisine. There are plenty of local dishes in the diferents regions and you can find most of them in Lima (can't say the same on other cities). Why in Lima? Because Perú is a centralized country, ...

Sharing my personal experience on the flight from Venice to Gdansk with three legs and thus three security checks (Ryanair uses cheap small airports where you can't transfer) in Treviso (Italy), Beauvais (France) and Modlin (Poland). I have got a small watermelon (15cm in diameter) in my backpack, which I took as a cabin baggage. During baggage scans in ...

Watermelons can easily be loaded up with other liquids including potently explosive liquids and as such would likely be prohibited as carry on items. Perhaps folks in the UK would not be familiar with this aspect, but in parts of the USA the process of spiking watermelons with a bottle or two of whiskey is commonly done to get alcohol into venues like ...

There are two potential issues here: Airport security and customs. For airport security: In the UK, "Liquids include liquid or semi-liquid foods, eg soup, jam, honey and syrups" and "Liquids in containers larger than 100ml generally can’t go through security even if the container is only part full." Exemptions (e.g. essential medical purposes) don't seem ...

To add to all the "No" responses the "21" limit also applies to US flagged vessels including both domestic and international Airlines. I have seen Australians of your age denied drinks on international flights leaving the US and headed to Oz.

Yes! According to the ProCon link mentioned in comments and other answers, drinking over the age of 18 is permitted with parental consent and without parental presence in some states, and without parental consent in others. As mentioned in other answers, it's not legal to buy alcohol under 21 or have someone else buy it for you. The problem to overcome then, ...
