comment In which European countries do I have to have a country indicator on my car?
@DCTLib only countries using the "common" EU design have the national identifier printed on the plates. Liechtenstein is not part of the EU, nor is Switzerland.

comment Website to arrange rides with trucks
you wrote "if it wasn't, you wouldn't meet people doing it". Which implies it's inherently safe.

comment Website to arrange rides with trucks
and hitchhiking is not always safe. It all depends on the people you meet, which you can't control. And of course it's not always safe either for the person picking up hitchhikers for the same reason.

comment Is tap water drinkable in Massachusetts (and elsewhere in USA)?
complete nonsense. Tap water in the US, except where people have their own wells (and then it's their own responsibility) is highly regulated by the government. If it were not safe to drink, the water company could face massive fines, even have their business license retracted. And that's after the multi-billion dollar lawsuits they'd be subjected to. If anything, I'd trust US tapwater over that in countries where there are fewer litigation lawyers constantly looking for reasons to sue companies.

comment What kind of things can you take from a hotel?
and there's usually instructions on how to get them to send you one in the book.

comment What kind of things can you take from a hotel?
@keshlam seen similar things in some hotels, often a nice display case in the lobby with items for sale to guests including price tags. Those often include towels, bath robes, and slippers.

comment What kind of things can you take from a hotel?
yes, I'd never take slippers from a hotel unless they look cheap and I've already used them myself... Bathrobes, towels, etc., never (unless in an emergency to pack something breakable maybe, and then I'd if at all possible ask them for something to package it in). Pens, notepads, shampoo bottles, nice mementos and if there's a hotel name and phone number on it they're meant to be taken...

comment Can we carry three new smart phones in hand luggage to India?
@JoErNanO yes, he's doing something illegal because he's cheap, too cheap to stay within the law. Just as is a gasoline thief, a shoplifter, someone who doesn't pay for his train ticket, or walks out of a restaurant without paying.

comment May I re-enter UK on a marriage visa that is about to expire?
impossible to tell, depends on the terms of the visa... You'll probably have to be married before it expires for example, which sounds like it's not going to happen. In all, your story sounds pretty much like you want to abuse your visa to gain entry into the country to stay without getting married, a massive red flag for immigration officers.

@CGCampbell yes, and he's violated that stay...

comment Can I travel within the US with an expired visa?
@CGCampbell no, your visa defines the length of your legal stay. After that you're in the country illegally and subject to deportation. If that weren't the case, why have a maximum duration of stay at all in a visa? Makes no sense, doesn't it?

are you even allowed to be in the country with an expired visa? Almost certainly not. You're not an illegal alien.

comment Mattresses are too soft: how can I get a better night's sleep in a hotel?
@JoErNanO of course, it's personal. But at least for me, a harder sleep is beneficial (and I've over a decade of experience with chronic back problems).

comment Is iPad counted as a second Laptop?
@tohecz that's not the general rule. In many countries (including the US, the Netherlands, etc.) you have to pay import duties on gifts. And you certainly have to pay import duties when bringing things across international boundaries from abroad you don't intent to take with you back out of the country.

comment Are these guys real or scammers? canadianvisaexpert.com
work on sunday? many small businesses will, and in many countries it's very common as well. Ask about diplomas? Why not? Do you expect everyone worldwide to know the exact requirements for your specific job? Last two sound fishy, first two not so much.

@Vince of course, hence my earlier comment. Though there are many rather shady "visa consultants". Just think of all the H1b and green card scams related to US visa and residence permit applications.
