I had a cousin who was born and raised in Chicago and is currently having her holiday here in the Philippines. I got the chance to have a conversation with her just now; and asked her about this posted question in the forum related to where she is residing. I was told that there are three famous dishes in the city. These are the Chicago-style pizza, ...

I bought the Microwave and we use it on long trips. It was a little tricky getting the connection to the battery, but once that was done, it works very well. It also can be used in motels when you stop. I went back to find a link for you guys, but the AC/DC model is now marked as discontinued. They still sell the DC only model. Here is the link. ...

The Conad grocery chain operates on a cooperative business model, and has arguably the most established organic food retail market in central Italy. They are based in Bologna, and have stores in Florence and Perugia (113 km and 96 km from San Quirico respectively). They offer a mobile app for ordering on-line and they may be able to special order any of ...

You can find sea cucumber in markets near harbor or hotel restaurant. The price is around NT$400/600g in port markets, but it depends on some factors. In hotel restaurant, a set of sea cucumber in Evergreen Hotel is about NT$2000. I think there are meals of sea cucumber in most 5-star hotel. If you can read Chinese, have a check on this website for this ...

Dianping is a food and restaurant guide website in China. It lists out most of the vegetarian restaurant in Guangzhou. The website is written in Chinese only. Use baidu translate and baidu map to find out more information about the restaurant. In addition, although they claim they are vegetarian restaurants but no certification is done. And not every ...

I think the consumables in the rooms are well covered in the other answers. The thing I miss in most of them is the food at breakfast (and maybe other buffets.) In Norway there are extensive breakfast buffets in hostels, when I was there most of those had a notice that you could eat as much as you liked but were not allowed to take food out of the room. ...

You can take away daily consumables, which you have used and which cannot be used again or given to others like soap, shampoos, shaving kit, sponges etc. and you can also take pens, magazines and note pads. I do suggest to take away towels if it's necessary during your travel, because some of the hotels consider it as scrap. They won't mind taking that with ...

I found the above answers to be unclear. So: 1) You can and should take as many pairs of the cheap slippers as you can grab (the single-use ones with a logo, wrapped in plastic). These are really handy and cool! 2) You can and should (if for some reason you want to) take all the toiletries: that is to say the small bottles of shampoo, etc., and similarly ...

No, it's simply done to make it more convenient, more "elegant" if you will. Just as they might, say, pull the stems from apples or polish apples. Some joints actually start to pull the banana skin down for you, to make it even easier! :)

The places where children have easy access to dentists and toothbrushes are generally the places where children have easy access to candy and don't need or particularly want any from you. If you came to Canada to see Niagara Falls or the Rocky Mountains and were handing candy to any Canadian children you saw, people wouldn't think you were being at all ...

It's not uncommon, so you can buy them in any traditional market. There are, however, the real one and the "fake" one. I will recommend going to a decent restaurant and order a dish with it. Most fancier Chinese restaurants should have it.

Liquid in the Can Makes the Whole Can Liquid The issue with canned food is not the food itself but rather the liquid suspension in which it is preserved - brine, oil, sauce, water, etc. Because the can contains some liquid, the whole item will understandably be treated as a liquid container. Your canned food will therefore be subject to the 100ml rule ...

Yes, but not everywhere. This shows an image of what is claimed to be a water fountain at the airport. I was not totally convinced that this picture was taken at CDG - apparently, the fountains are used in other airports - but I found another mention of it in this video, which also attributes it to CDG. It is a side view, but it matches up. I also found ...

Liquids and paste-like substances are prohibited, meaning that anything moist or canned in oil, brine, fruit juice, syrup, water or any other liquid will be prohibited too.

I tend to just use rough estimations when I travel to the US. On a holiday, you rarely need the exact equivalent: 1l = 0.25 gallons 1m = 1 yard 100ml = 4 fluid ounces (same goes for grams to ounces) 1.5km = 1 mile 1kg = 2 pounds For temperature, subtract 30 from the Fahrenheit and divide by 2 - not 100% accurate, but it'll certainly help you dress ...

Something I haven't seen in the other answers: There's a conversion for prices you need to think about. Each state (and city) sets its own sales tax. The prices shown in a store do not include this tax. Tax rates can be as low as 0 or as high as 10%. gasoline prices shown do include the tax.

The only conversion that seems to me that you should really know is the currency conversion. Other than that: I am German and I lived a year in the USA and I went to High School there and if you'd asked me about how big a person who is 6 foot tall is in meters I'd now by instinct somehow know that this is rather big for a person and since big persons are ...
