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…"

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.

comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
The USA seems to have a steryotype of "British Bad Teeth", but I don't think that's a stereyotype that the British are aware of it, so you might get confused looks if you joke about it. Some countries are aware of the steryotypes of themselves (e.g. Irish & drinking), and might understand if you are making a joke, but the "British Bad Teeth" seems to be a USA idea. Joking about food as a USAian would be odd, since the USA isn't exactly known for it's culinary excellence (compared to say, France)

comment Where can I go with an Irish visa but without a Schengen visa?
Yes there is amibiguity over the term "Ireland", however it's quite common to refer to the Republic of Ireland as "Ireland", that is it's official name! The Government there says that Ireland has a border! (And not all of the Province of Ulster is in Northern Ireland, 3 counties (Donegal, Cavan & Monaghan) are in Ulster, but in (Republic of) Ireland.

comment Hot Springs around Bulgaria?
Thanks that's quite informative. I've updated the question with details. with roads, motorbikes can usually go to more places than cars. :)

comment Kindle version of WikiTravel?
Yeah that's an easy and quick way, but oftentimes there are numerous pages per region (e.g. a different page per city/area), so I'd like to have them all.

Oh. I did not know. Maybe you're right. (Scratch that up to another 'I thought everyone did that'). Any USAians care to comment?
