comment New device checking rules for flights to/from USA
@CGCampbell: Poor coverage, lack of international roaming agreements and being in foreign countries with cellular networks not supported by your cell phone are just some of the reasons why it's not necessarily possible to make a call with a genuine phone. Modern cell phones are perhaps too small, but I would also assume that it's a manageable problem to embed enough explosives in a laptop to take down a plane and still leave enough of the laptop intact for it to be working normally.

comment Withdrawing money in an ATM in Poland, is there a bes network?
In most cases, both fees and the exchange rate is set by the card issuer. Were you charged extra by the ATM operator as well?

comment Buying Interrail pass abroad without passport
I am not sure what exactly you find confusing and how this is related to Norway's relationship with the EU, but a foreigner is at least defined by Merriam-Webster as a person from a different country. To be specific, foreigners must for example in Germany be in possession of a valid id. It does not matter if it is a person from an EU country like Austria, someone from Norway or someone from any other non-EU country.

@AdityaSomani: Eh, yes. At least for all reasonable definitions of "foreigner". Why would you assume anything else?

comment Is it legal to stay in a wild camping in Romania?
Your answer is just about the opposite of what I've found searching through forums and information pages. I have no legal reference either, but from the information I've found, wild camping is allegedly not allowed in Romania, but tolerated almost everywhere and commonly practiced by Romanians. As long as you practice common sense, it is not supposed to be anymore dangerous or unsafe than wild camping anywhere else.

comment Buying Interrail pass abroad without passport
It is a common misconception in Norway that you can travel through the Schengen area without a passport. Even if there are no regular immigration control at the borders anymore, many Schengen countries require foreigners to be able to present a passport or id card when being in the country. Since there are no national id cards in Norway, this leaves you with the passport as your only option. In addition to offical requirements, many air lines requires an id for check-in and many hotels/accomodations also require an id if you are planning to sleep somewhere.

What exactly are you missing? It states that the ticket can only be canceled within 4 hours after booking.

comment Can a US physician give a MRI referral that is valid in France?
@Relaxed: That's an odd argumentation. I am not saying that questions about XY are off topic because someone could go shopping after doing XY. I am just saying that not all subjects are on topic, just because you could or do travel before doing XY.

comment Can a US physician give a MRI referral that is valid in France?
Perhaps my gut feeling is wrong, but I would draw an on/off topic line between questions about getting medical help while traveling and traveling for medical purposes. The other questions clearly falls into the first category and I have no doubt that it is on topic. Although the reasoning behind this question is quite vague, I would put it in the second category. If it is about saving money because the MRI is cheaper in France, the question could just as well categorized as a "shopping suggestion" question.
