There is no direct train from Warsaw to Riga or Tallinn. It is possible to do the journey by train, but it's cumbersome. It takes two days and you would be traveling on local trains, mainly soviet-style Elektrichkas. You have to travel from Warsaw to Vilnius and then from Vilnius to Riga, and finally from Riga to Tallinn. Note that this route does not ...

There is a train station within walking distance of the terminal, if you're going to take the train into the city, but last time I was there it was not easy to find: the signage was not very clear, basically. If you start walking along the airport access road you've gone too far. Other than this I think it is very simple and easy. WAW is a good airport.

The possibility and inconveniences of using a local SIM in your home phone The costs of buying a new phone.

You can use special bus "Modlin Bus" - http://www.modlinbus.com/ It has a bus stop in front of airport terminal and goes directly to the center of Warsaw. Maybe it is the best option for you, because you don't need to change from bus to train like in case of "Koleje Mazowieckie". You can also use trains provided by "Koleje Mazowieckie" company.

The trains do run from Tallinn and Riga to Warsaw same as the other way around. The easiest way to find them would be actually via Polish Rail site and schedule, which will allow you to search destinations in either direction and will provide you the changes needed to complete your journey. Strangely enough (or may be not) the number of changes is actually ...

If you rent an appartment using real estate agency, there's de facto standard fee - 1 month rent, which is splitted 50/50 between the owner and the tenant. Because the owner will be charged too, it's unlikely somebody will be interesting in such short-term rental through the agency, so you should look for direct offers (pl: bezpośredni).

If you're on a budget: 24h city transportation ticket is really cheaper than buy short-tern tickets each time. Check foursquare, soup can be found in ~5zl, quite good lunch in 15zl if not on budget - city taxi must have price displayed at the door, so you'll know what you'll have to pay before you get that car. Check weather forecast - it's almost cold ...

As the normal transfer time is one hour(plus delay over 30mins), deduct time for taxiing and gate close time, actually you have <30mins for transit. Prepare your passport and take out you computer/mobile before landing for faster security check. Choose a seat as front as possible. Pack your stuff and prepare to leave before the flight landing to leave ...

Traditionally, Praga is considered the most dangerous districts. There are many dramatical stories, like that one that an estate agent have told me, after going there to see an appartment, he had to pay ransom to leave the staircase. But it don't apply to the whole Praga, only to a few streets. As for general statistics, see here: ...

I would not personally consider your permanent residence as Frankfurt under the circumstances. Assuming that, as in your second year at college, you are between 17 and 79 then an interview is required (except is some cases for renewals). The U.S. State Department's Visitor Visas page mentions that and includes: You must schedule an appointment for your ...
