comment How to locate a bucolic camp site when on the road in the EU?
@Tor-EinarJarnbjo I don't think so, campsite owners are not aiming for as few visitors as possible. At the same time I have the impression most people prefer a 4 star camp site with all sorts of luxury.

comment Can chartering a private plane be an affordable alternative to scheduled flights?
We spent two days searching for alternatives when we stumbled on the cessna offer. This was in French Guyana just before a launch of the Arianne rocket by ESA. The next affordable flight out was in three weeks.

comment Is the European driving license valid as ID in Europe?
Well I guess when you get a "stempas", it means you status has already been cleared. I have used my Belgian license on many occasions as proof of ID, even for getting from the UK to France. However my license has also been denied as ID on many other occasions as well. On the frequent border controls by the Dutch military police, both your license and ID are required.

comment Is the European driving license valid as ID in Europe?
Your example for the Netherlands is not completely true. In the Netherlands a Dutch license of EU format for a Dutch citizen/resident (here I am not sure which apply's) is a valid form of ID. Simply because the authorities have the means to check additional info. For other EU licenses you need additional id proof. Even if you are a Dutch Citizen with a license from another EU country

@mouviciel technically both the Netherlands and St Maarten are separate countries, both part of the kingdom of the Netherlands.

comment What are the two closest countries that do not share a border?
What do you consider a "short" overland distance? Both the Netherlands/France and Croatia/Italy are separated by a country less then 50 km at some point.

comment Are medical doctors legally doctors wherever they are?
@annoyed no it is not about practicing, but really about traveling. In this specific case the guy actually refrained from assisting only exposing himself as a medical doctor when I tried to help (not being a doctor). When asked why he didn't respond in the first place, I got the answer above.

comment Why do countries require validity of 6 months for passports?
I am not so sure if this is the correct answer. In case of friendly relationships between countries any diplomatic mission is able to provide valid documents. Renewing a passport abroad is not such an issue, other then that it costs a lot.

comment Can passengers visit the flight attendants' sleeping quarters?
No offense, but I rather fly with airlines where flight attendents see the passengers as equal and as a resilt don't need a rest from them.
