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.

comment What are the standard border checks when traveling between Warsaw and Berlin by various types of transit
@MichaelHampton no, I've written, when you go for the sandwitch. Inside you're usually safe ;) Actually, I haven't noticed it in Germany, but in Poland, before afternoon, the police often stop random people, they have probably a kind of number of people to control on daily basis...

@MichaelHampton if they stop you, of course you must show it.

comment Combining Regio-Ticket Bayern with “Grossraum” tickets?
You mean: "nur für Fahrten, die außerhalb eines Verkehrsverbundes beginnen oder enden"? Should I understand it "outside any VV" or "outside this/given VV"? The text being in German makes it not easier to understand :)

comment Combining Regio-Ticket Bayern with “Grossraum” tickets?
Sorry, but I don't understand. I thought that Regio Ticket is for travelling by train between any cities in Bavaria with distance less that 50 km. But from your answer, it's not the case, when both of them are withing Verkehrsverbundes (even if within different one). So can I use them when either the target or the start is outside VV? Or only if both target and start are outside VV?

comment Combining Regio-Ticket Bayern with “Grossraum” tickets?
So the problem here is, that my trip will start in one Verbund (VGN) and will end in the other (RW)? Travelling from, for example, Augsburg to Ingolstadt would not be a problem?

comment Using an Amazon Kindle onboard a flight?
@Jonathan if you compare kindle to some of those dancing-with-vampires-romances-for-teenies that yes, but a typical book weights much more than a kindle. And their corners can be much harder. Probably people won't take it on board because of weight limitation, but a book is a book anyway. A solid dictionary or encyclopedia could even kill you.

comment How much cash can you carry in a European Union domestic flight?
I can't imagine someone giving up a large amount of money as main luggage, so better to calculate regular luggage, and every possible pocket.

comment What should I do if I feel the pilot is guiding the flight in the wrong direction?
You should also note, that your notion of the wrong direction may be completely, well, wrong. A plane may fly in the direction considered opposite in order to catch air current, or opposite, to omit air current blowing in the direction opposite to desired etc.

@Karlson exactly, Expatriates should be launched that week, so it's a last moment to sign up for private beta.

comment Renting apartaments for less than month in Europe?
@Annoyed the problem is that any possible answer would be probably adapted to single (in best case 2 or 3) countries and useless for other. So either there will be no way to select correct one or the answer would be too long, including all possibilites.

comment Renting apartaments for less than month in Europe?
It's practically link-only answer. It should provide much more details, like for what areas they are targeting, how does payment look like etc. Link with short sentence is good, but in comment.
