You shouldn't notice much impact on the actual getting around part of travel. Public transport, as well as things like highway maintenance and management are all done at the state level, and are unaffected by short term federal government shutdowns. Similarly, the TSA, FAA, and Border Patrol are all continuing to operate, with their employees being paid on ...

No. It does not make you stateless. The United States government still exists and is recognized by foreign governments. The US government has only closed down some non-essential operations. None of that affects its relationship with other countries or US citizens ability to travel with valid US passports (it may make it harder to get/renew a US passport ...

Get on any form of transportation out of the affected area. If you stay you need to share the limited options with a lot of people. The more peripheral you can get the better. It doesn't matter what direction. I was once in a situation where the trapped travelers flocked together. I chose to jump at the first intercity bus out of the region. I didn't even ...

Number one strategy is to get out ahead of it. For example a number of people I know were going to fly Monday of this week from the East Coast. Some changed their flights (for free in some cases, at significant expense in others) to get out Sunday, thus avoiding all the hassles. Earthquakes, volcanoes, and the like don't come with prior warning but storms ...

The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office note that night time curfews still exist in many areas but can change at short notice. You are advised to make inquiries locally about any existing curfews. A night-time curfew remains in place in parts of central and northern Rakhine State, including Sittwe and Mrauk U, between 10pm and 5am. Timings of the curfew ...

The first thing to decide is if you actually need to travel? With a lot of disruptions and cancellations, there's a lot of demand for the limited transport there is. You might be better off checking with your airline / travel insurance about covering hotels, finding a hotel before they all go, and settling down to wait it out. It won't work for all cases, ...

The definition of Statelessness is: Statelessness is a legal concept describing the lack of any nationality. It denotes the absence of a recognized link between an individual and any state. A de jure stateless person is someone who is "not considered as a national by any state under the operation of its law". A de facto stateless person is ...

Fot his specific strike, my answer is too late, but since the Belgian railways are prone for strikes (sometimes even instant strikes) I can still answer. The bus connection google mentions is not worth a try, especially if there are strikes. You mention 3 connections, meaning in practice your travel time will be doubled due to at least one missed ...

Using google maps directions I found this option using the bus network: Google map link. It involves four buses: 821 to Merchtem, 245 onwards to Dendermonde, 28 to Wetteren and finally number 34 to Gent. It seems that the latest option for this route starts at 18:16 making it hard to catch with a flight arriving 17:55. (If I remember correctly Brussels is ...

In big cities like Yangon,Bagan and Mandalay, I don't see any night-time curfew. But since electricity is limited, most of lights are off.

Ok, so the reality uncovered: You can take any train it seems, at least on board of both trains I took they said that any ticket for this or the previous day is valid. However, nobody checked anyone in any of these trains, and I got similar experiences from other people I met in the last couple days. At all the stations, the boarding was a complete chaos; ...

Officially, no, you cannot take a non-idTGV train with an idTGV ticket, even on a strike day. The official answer about what happens if your idTGV train is canceled due to the strike is Nothing! idTGV handles everything! You will automatically receive an email with your compensation in the form of two vouchers for 100% and 20% of the price of your ...

If you can afford it the best option is to rent a car. This is what I ended up doing. I was a bit worried that there would be no cars left due to the strike but I guess people need to get to the airport then too. Anyway I booked one in advance and found it in the midst of an ocean of other rentals.
