comment What do I have to take into account when buying an urban backpack?
I'm not primarily concerned with biking. I just want a functionally optimal back pack. It is a mere side constraint that it should be bike-transportable.

@Dirty-flow: On the contrary, it is not! Please (re-)read what this community considers good and bad shopping questions.

@MarcelC.: It's about urban travel to some extend, but I do get your point. Would it make sense to move it to "The Great Outdoors"?

@AnkurBanerjee: The question was intended to address legal things and paperwork, etc., which is covered by the FAQ at the first bullet point: "customs & immigration, border crossing, visas and other travel documents such as permits". I too think, btw. that the ESTA rumour was rubbish, but better safe than sorry :)

Thanks a lot for sharing these infos! Regarding the credit card thing; I only have Master Card. I trust I can pay with it normally everywhere and use the ATMs? As of French ... well I know merci and bonjour, school is a while ago -- I thought English would be the only thing I need (I hope that's not a sore point!), but that means I should probably pack a fr-de or fr-en dictionary, right? (I will most definitely not watch TV while I'm there.)
