comment Whose laws should I obey in no man's land
@phoog: I am quite sure it is not. An airborne aircraft is under the jurisdiction of the country of registration and not the country of the airspace, in which it currently is.

comment Whose laws should I obey in no man's land
Your theoretical theory is wrong. Where does the widespread presumption come from, that you are in 'no man's land' if you are e.g. in the transit area of an airport or between border checkpoints at a land border?

comment China intercity travel by taxi or minivan
There are quite a few places in China called Nantong. Perhaps you could explain which Nantong you mean?

comment Where is 佐賀線偲橋, a bridge on a railway line reconverted into a bicycle path?
I was also beaten on this one while searching. You can find a list of the old stations along the line and their locations on Wikipedia, the first stop after Saga (Saga South) is located here: 33°14'22.7"N+130°19'05.7"E and you can easily spot where the old line has branched of to the south, just east of Saga station. The pedestrian/bicycle path starts just north of Saga South station.

comment How can you buy train tickets at Oslo Airport?
@JonStory The 'S' in Norwegian railway station names (I think the only stations ussing the suffix are 'Oslo S' and 'Trondheim S') does not mean 'Sentrum'. It's an abbreviation for 'Sentralstasjon' and means exactly central or main station.

comment Why does the Cook Islands issue entry permits, not visas?
Some countries call it a 'visa', some call it an 'entry permit' and USA and Canada call it a 'travel authorization'. For most travellers, the practical impact is exactly the same: They have to go through a more or less tedious application or audit process and perhaps pay a fee to get a conditional pre-clearance to visit a country.

comment Would a non-business traveler ever benefit from collecting air miles, as compared to simply buying the cheapest ticket available?
Once again: Can you specify which 'some airlines' you are talking about? To give a specific example of the opposite: Lufthansa credits you with about 1,900 miles for the cheapest transatlantic roundtrip fare and charges you at least 33,000 miles for a free domestic flight within Germany (taxes inclusive).

comment Is 1hr layover in Rome enough for a flight from South America to Paris?
Yes, but even if the airline is responsible to find you a ticket for a later flight (it does not have to be the next flight), it's your own pity if you miss a planned appointment or have to spend parts of your holiday in an airport terminal waiting for the replacement flight.

comment Passport control when flying from Romania to Italy
@vsz I am not sure why that should be misunderstood. It is also not relevant to the question asked, wether Romanian citizens can use their national id card as a travel document when entering Italy.

comment Do stateless Green Card holders need schengen visa?
@blackbird57 Not necessarily. Even if it worked out for most Ex-Soviet citizens, the former Soviet countries now have so different nationality laws, that many persons fell out of the system and did not have a possibility to obtain a new citizenship. Assume that A and B are two former Soviet countries, you are ethnic A, but were resident in B. If after the Soviet breakup, A award citizenship based on residency and B award citizenship based on ethnicity, you would not get citizenship of either country.

comment Do stateless Green Card holders need schengen visa?
@blackbird57 As most countries, former Soviet union countries usually only issue passports to their own citizens. If the OP is stateless, he can't simply go to a former Soviet consulate and expect to be issued a passport.

comment I have two UK passports. Do US CBP know of both passports or just one i show?
@CMaster Why would UK authorities be aware of the visit to Sudan? Even if passports contain some high-tech magic, it's not like that they are automatically transmitting stamps put into them by foreign immigration officers to the issuing country.

comment To obtain a schengen a visa to Europe
Your income is not necessarily relevant when applying for a Schengen visa. What matters is how much funds (e.g. also savings) you dispose of.

And just to be clear what you have guaranteed: Have you signed a 'dichiarazione di ospitalità' for this visit? questure.poliziadistato.it/file/4520_4938.pdf

comment Cancel a Tourist (C) visa issued for all schengen states
Which Schengen country has issued the visa? There might be slight differences in national legislation, but it is usually not possible to revoke a guarantee letter.

comment holiday from Munich
Sorry, but an answer to your question or preference would be primarly opinion based. There is an almost endless list of smaller town near Munich, which all fit your requirements.
