comment Does Venice smell?
It's true, every water, with exception of distilled one, smells. For many people that smell (if the water is not contaminated) is pleasant, but some who are not used to water may find it unpleasant as well.

They are partially blocking their own search engine? hmm?

comment How to prevent the passenger in front of you from reclining without notice?
Why do you need to recline to get rest? Can't you rest in sitting position, without crashing the passanger behind? Doesn't an individual have the right not to be crashed in the first line?

comment Which airlines ban the use of Knee Defenders during flight?
Could the flight attendants ban reclining as well, if the crushed passenger complains?

comment Languages spoken in the Netherlands
@Relaxed Polish dubbing is so loud, you can't understand the original even if you know the language relatively good. It's even more annoying if it jams the soundtrack and any other sounds as well

comment What is the country of residence under the rules of the InterRail?
Hmmm it's a bit helpful, but still answers my concerns, I could prove both addresses. Polish one is more obvious, because I have it on my ID card. If they check my identity, they have my Polish address of registration. It could appear from your answer, I can freely choose before German and Polish residence, but Polish will be easier to prove, but it's not clear if they would want me to give as my address the shipping address... Sorry for prolonged discussion in comments

comment What is the country of residence under the rules of the InterRail?
I've clarified my question. It's not about what is my country of residence, but how the InterRail determine the country of residence.

comment What is the country of residence under the rules of the InterRail?
Yes, but once again, I'm not required to wear them. As I have written, I have a proof that I live in Poland as well (personal ID with registration address). The question is, if InterRail can ask me for additional documents or anything like that... I suppose, when I buy it, I give my Personal ID, which is Polish.

comment What is the country of residence under the rules of the InterRail?
But I've asked, how do they actually proof that? I'm not required to travel with anything else than my Personal ID, which states my country of residence in Poland. In case of control, I could have problems, actually, proving that my country of residence is not Poland.

comment What is the country of residence under the rules of the InterRail?
OK, but in that case, in which countries would I be able to use the InterRail? They write it won't work in my country of residence.

comment What is the country of residence under the rules of the InterRail?
It's not about lawyering. It's about how InterRail interpret their own rules about it. People constantly forget expatriates are a special case where not everything is obvious.

A related question, why India requires Visa from so many other citizens, for example Europeans?

comment Geocaching with GPS device in Belarus?
Some geocachers got interrogated by special security in Georgia, on the same geocache I've made in botanical garden in Tbilisi. Because the cache was near (about half a kilometer) from prime minister's residence. The cache was regular. Quite small as for potential atomic bomb :D

comment Do I actually need an EHIC?
+ for UK, but I don't understand, why do you need a separate card at all, one (your national) should be enough...

comment Searching for internal bus connections in Germany
Maybe both should be added to travel.stackexchange.com/questions/11648/…. I haven't found it because it's not tagged [buses] and initially targeted for inter-city transport, maybe it should be splitted to 2 canonical answers. I've enriched it for Polish bus planner, by occasion.

comment Does anyone make a single device that does GPS navigation and tracking?
Because smartphones are not designed as GPS devices. I have experience mostly with Androids, iPhones are said to be better when it comes to battery life. I'm not aware of any Garmin model that would upload to server life via wifi.

comment Map about hiking routes in the Polish Tatras?
What do you need to be in English and why? The legend is usually in English too, and with the geographic names, translation doesn't make sense.

comment Long-life SIM cards in Europe
@drat I've addressed that issues, however for the Germany I can only say my T-Mobile prepaid still functioned after a few months in the drawer. As for Polish sims, I'm sure it doesn't matter if they are used or not, you pay to prolong and the validity-termin is well defined and available to check.

comment How to allow my wife to stay in Poland for more than 90 days
A nice idea. It's only 2 days overtime, which can be spent, for example, in Lviv. A nice city near the Polish border.

Maybe it was a kiosk on the railway/bus station?
