comment Is it rude to tell the ice cream man in Istanbul not to mess with me?
From my experience, the ice cream sellers don't speak English, so unless you are able to communicate in Turkish (or whatever other language the seller speaks), he won't understand you anyway.

comment 10 pieces of checked luggage on a flight instead of a shipping service - crazy?
@CMaster The charge is US$ 425 for "10 extra suitcases of max. 23 kg", so it must be safe to assume that each suitcase can weigh 23 kg. Basically, the fee is US$ 20 for the first suitcase and US$ 45 for each further suitcase.

comment From Dusseldorf airport to Bochum Ruhr University by public transport
@cdkMoose Google's coverage of public transport is in Germany unfortunately not very good. In this case, Google does not seem to know the subway line in Bochum and suggests to take a taxi from the main station to the university.

comment Waiting in transit zone until Schengen visa is valid
We have a very similar question regarding flying to Frankfurt. Even if some of the response is specific for Frankfurt, the issue with the airline also apply to you. Even if you might have the option to wait in Paris, you are likely to be denied boarding by the airline since you don't have a valid visa for your destination. travel.stackexchange.com/questions/46211/…

comment Can I travel with my video game to Germany?
@ThorstenS. That's because there is no legal difference between 'consumable' and 'non-consumable' items in the German or EU customs regulations. Strictly speaking are 'personal effects reasonably required for the journey' unless 'subject to a prohibition or restriction or to any other special formality' covered by the regulations, see EEC 2454/93, article 232, 235, 236 and 563. There is no strict exception for consumable items.

comment Disposable Cellphone SIM Card for Germany
I am not quite sure how to deal with this question. Greg is correct, that this is a duplicate of the question he is referring to. The almost 3 years old answer is however severely outdated.

comment Does the sufficiency of an ID-card for travelling abroad depend on the airline?
Of course they can. The airline's terms and conditions are not necessarily related to the requirements for immigration in your destination country.

comment Is it possible to pay with euros in Eastern Europe?
Using the ING-Diba credit card outside the euro area is not free of charge as you state, but incur a 1.75% fee. Why do you recommend not to use exchange offices? They often or mostly offer better exchange rates and/or lower fees than banks.

comment How long would it take to hike from Hamar to Lillehammer?
Weather next year is of course also impossible to predict, but you are not likely to find snow in that area in May.

comment Is it possible to pay with euros in Eastern Europe?
We also have a very recent question about the situation in Hungary. I would say that most of what I wrote in my answer there apply to Serbia as well, although shops in Serbia are perhaps even less likely to accept euros at all.
