While you have ample time between landing at O'Hare Airport in the morning to get to Milwaukee Intermodal Station for the evening Indian Trails departure, you might want to save yourself traveling the wrong direction into downtown Chicago to the main Greyhound station or train station. Coach USA buses go directly from O'Hare Airport to Milwaukee Intermodal ...

Upon revisiting this question some hours later, I think the real problem is that you are selecting the "wrong" Houghton. Greyhound's search engine recognizes three possible Indian Trails stops: Houghton, MI, Houghton City Center, MI, and Houghton Little Caesars, MI. I didn't look at the trip details closely enough in my initial search, either. If you do ...

I book most of my accommodation on hotels.com because of their rewards scheme. Most of the time the hotel will list the different types of rooms which may be priced accordingly. These booking systems might have pre-booked the rooms in bulk and are on-selling them to you, and you will be allocated a room with the room type you book. However, it is still ...

You are making a mistake in booking your work travel on booking.com. Booking.com takes a cut out of the rate and therefore the hotel is not really interested in helping you. The best way is to book directly with chain hotels. (Almost all the chain hotels guarantee that the rate they offer directly cannot be beaten by buying the same room elsewhere.) The ...

I always stick on one or two blank pages a small paper with the written mention " PLEASE DO NOT STAMP ON THIS PAGE !! " And it works fine, never had any trouble and have kept my passport valid till the end.

Rent a (Solo) Music Studio Since you mention the need to be alone, a dedicated music studio comes to mind. A quick google search revealed Studio Luna Rossa in the 13th Arrondissement and Maison de la Musique in Neuilly-Sur-Seine 92200. Both of these offer small solo studios for something around 6-7EUR per hour, during both weekdays (off-peak and peak hours) ...

Look for unmanned automatic laundry places. Since the washers/dryers there are usually coin-operated, you'll find a coin dispensing machine to convert your notes into shrapnel. You're likely to also find similar machines at self-service car-washes, or in any other business providing coin-operated services. They usually look something like this: Cassa per ...

Enter a bar or supermarket and ask if they can change your 10€ bill into 1€ / 2€ coins for the parking. Repeat again in some other place. Probably they will stare badly at you. You're not obliged to consume or buy anything. Be warned that some cashiers may refuse your request. This is a common behaviour even for italians. This site reports that parking ...

I don't recall any peculiar rule. You are supposed to walk on the sidewalk and to cross streets only when the pedestrian sign is green (unlike the UK, if that's where you come from). You can receive a small fine for failing to do so. It's not as bad as Amsterdam but do beware of bike lanes and treat them like streets (look right and left before crossing, ...

There is no train, S-Bahn or Metro station at Tegel airport. The most convenient option is to take a bus to Berlin Hauptbahnhof (central station) and to catch there the train to Göttingen. http://www.berlin-airport.de/en/travellers-txl/to-and-from/buses-and-trains/long-distance-transport/index.php Trains to and from Göttingen also call at Berlin-Spandau, ...

The trains from Berlin to Göttingen are ICE (fast train) running from Berlin Hauptbahnhof (i.e. Berlin main station) and going through Berlin Spandau. You can find an example of the itinerary here. Starting your trip from Tegel airport, you will need to first take a bus (TXL) to Berlin Hauptbahnhof (thanks @Gagravarr for the comment) and there does not seem ...
