comment Getting a passport stamp while walking across a EU border
@Gilles: You are no longer stopping at the border normally, but you can always stop and go talk to the border guard in case you have goods to declare, for example.

comment At what age an infant can start flying?
All my three kids took their first flight between 2 and 3 months of age. No issues at all (make sure you book the flight early enough so you still get a baby bed, if possible, though).

comment How to declare value of checked in luggage?
@Annoyed: Agreed. Ground personnel seems to have quite some discretion - I negotiated a decent compensation for a ripped-off bag handle in Beijing, for example.

comment Biometric passport: How can I know if the chip is still working? Does it matter?
@jpatokal: That's not a smudge. The spot of Elbonian mud is a security feature.
