Yes, "Köpenhamn Ingerslevsgade DGI" is Copenhagen (and Göteborg is of course Gothenburg). Ingerslevsgade is where most long-distance buses from Copenhagen leave. It's near the central station, just around the corner from the outer end of the S-train platforms. There are frequent train services from the airport to the central station -- continue straight ...

There's a train leaving from the Copenhagen Airport terminal at 13:38 next Thursday and you can book direct to Gothenburg. Travel time is about 3 hours. Regarding the 'tips-and-tricks' part of your question... Alternatively, to take in some local culture, you can catch the train from Copenhagen to Helsingør and check out Kronborg Castle, the traditional ...

In Australia the etiquette is slightly different from the above mentioned. Uber operates very similar to Taxis. You are expected to approach the Taxi/Uber and open the door for yourself, then you'll lean over if you have luggage and ask the driver if they will pop the boot. Then you'll go back and put your luggage in the boot and close it yourself. At this ...

There is no set rules for the Uber/Lyft/Gett, etc driver to do any of these things. The driver normally would open the trunk for you but getting the door for you may be unlikely. The thing of it is you have the ability to rate the driver for Uber and Lyft and leave comments on their performance. The only thing that you have to worry about is that they can ...

I understand that many Muslims believe that if a dog touches your clothes, it is forbidden to pray in those clothes until they have been washed three times. This can be very ...

This is a guess rather than something I know, but it may be worth checking if it's possible to request to be searched by means other than a sniffer dog. They may be willing to have a human (or maybe even trained bees) search you instead.

Getting sniffed by a dog is not prohibited in Islam. See this if you want the relevant discussion. In fact, dogs can be kept as pets as long as they are for defence, herding etc. and not as recreational animals. You may also want to post this separately in islam.stackexchange.com. Even if you ignore the above - dogs at airports don't sniff people, they ...

I have met the "fruit sniffing" dog several times and am aware (from watching Border Security) of currency-sniffing and firearms-sniffing dogs in addition to the classic drug-sniffers. Generally, these dogs sniff people's bags more than people. (The Canadian beagle that met my flight from the Caribbean once sat [the dog's signal] about my bag, but the ...

My suggestion is to take a multi-prise of your current country, open it up and change the plug to a European (that you should be able to find in stores in Toronto, or in the worst case buy one in Paris). The new plug should look like this: Ungrouned, and a three-pin for grounded. Both use the same voltage, so there should be no problem in that region.
