comment Understanding Greek road signs
Thanks for your advice. However I don't know where I'll be going. We decide on the day where to go. If we pick a town/city in the morning, I don't really have time to learn it.

comment Understanding Greek road signs
Looking at Google Maps or online is no good for me. I'll be driving, and if I see a sign, I don't want to have to stop and pull over and Google it. Also I don't have roaming data. I'd much rather learn a bit.

comment Ireland castle hotel options
Just a heads up: there are many things in Ireland that are called a "castle", but could be more accuratly called a "stately home". If you want a castle castle (with turrets and big walls), be sure to check out the photos of the place first.

comment What are the restrictions imposed by the Sharia law in Aceh, Sumatra?
an unmarried Western couple can simply claim to be married, and they'll most likely be just fine. I presume you mean an unmarried different sex Western couple? Or are they OK with 2 men married to each other.,

comment Any travel site for medium/long distance multimodal comparison? (Train then plane etc.)
Thanks, and yes I know it can't show everything. Just something more than "planes only"

comment Getting passport stamps inside Schengen Area
EU ≠ Schengen. Ireland & UK are in EU but not Schengen. Norway is in Schengen but not EU.

comment Family Hotels in Ireland?
Where are you going in Meath? What are you going to see? Are you hiring a car (I presume so). Meath is beside Dublin city, so you can include that in your search.

comment Is it cheaper to book Dutch train tickets online in advance compared to paying on the day?
@Gagravarr I don't care what sort of train, so long as it doesn't really take more than 1½ hrs.

comment How to understand the registration rules in Serbia?
I've never been to Serbia, but I was in nearby Macedonia with similar rules. When we got out accomodation (we rented an apartment for 2 nights), the owner just asked the details and filled in the forms. We only had to do that once at the start (even though we were there for ~ 3 days)/

comment Why would you wrap your luggage in plastic?
I really doubt the TSA is legally allowed to steal any and all property that is checked in. Sure it happens, but it's not legal.

comment Taking large amounts of strong medications on holiday
Are there any mental health support groups near you? Someone there might have experienced the same problem and have some tips.

comment What's the best way for foreigners outside of the UK to get to an English Premier League game?
This is definitly an on-topic question. There are loads of people who travel to see sporting events in foreign countries with teams that aren't from their country. If the question was "How do I book a safari in South Africa?" it would be on topic, so I can't see "How do I book a football match in England" can't be.

comment Pick-up Soccer in Dublin
I don't play football much, but you could try going down to a football pitch and asking people currently playing if you can join in? People are often willing to meet new people

comment How long does it take for Google Maps to include a newly opened highway in its driving directions?
If you want to see up to date maps, you could try openstreetmap, a wiki base map.

comment Is there an EU law that a hotel can't kick you out if you're sick?
Yes, OK, this is a pedantic argument. So when I ask "Is there an EU law…" I'm really asking "Is there an EU Regulation or Directive…"

comment Is there an EU law that a hotel can't kick you out if you're sick?
Yes there are no "EU laws" per se, but an EU directive is de facto (eventually) a law, and is commonly called "EU Law"

comment Is it possible to draw out USD from an ATM in Zambia?
Zimbabwe has de facto changed to USD though, so it's a special case.

comment Are there any inhabited condominiums (joint sovereignties) apart from Brčko District?
I recently traveled around Bosnia, and one would often pass between RS and FBH. They aren't really different countries per se.
