Oddly enough I wasn't able to find any information on this online, I'll continue to search in case I'm able to find something. Meanwhile, I'll tell you the general rules. As you would expect, it is entirely dependent on the policy of the country in which the airline is registered. Considering that, since the drinking age in Iceland is 20, the drinking age ...

I just spoke to my Romanian friend, who confirmed that this is technically legal. Having said that, it's not the safest thing ever, as Romania is known for high crime/theft rate against campers. If you're in the wild somewhere, it may be that much more difficult to get help if needed. There's some discussion of wild camping in Romania at this thread - ...

My Italian office-mate of long ago used to show his Italian license when stopped for speeding, which was often. Usually the cop didn't bother.
