comment Is a European Union (Slovakia) driver's licence valid in the US?
What language(s) is your drivers license in? I believe a big thing about whether your license is valid on its own is what language it's written in

comment Schengen visa for non-EU spouse with ILR
Do you have a passport from an EU country (eg the UK)? That will make a big difference to the situation for your wife when travelling with you in the EU

comment Can I travel in Croatia using only Euro?
There are plenty of ATMs about, as long as you have a sensible card for use overseas you shouldn't have any issue withdrawing a little bit to use

comment Unexpected hospitalization in the EU without EHIC, am I covered?
I think we'd be much better off leaving this one closed, and someone starting a new one eg "What is an EHIC, and why should an EU Citizen get one before travelling within Europe?" or something like that

comment Unexpected hospitalization in the EU without EHIC, am I covered?
@Annoyed Without more info from the OP, I'm not sure your edits are quite correct. We know they had some sort of travel insurance with a health component, but we don't know if they live in an EU country and hence if they are covered by an EU national health system. Also, note that NHS = National Health Service, not which isn't much like a US style Health Insurance scheme as it's universal and free at the point of use

Wikipedia has all the basics on EHIC cards - you might be confused by having dropped the I (=Insurance) from the acronym

comment Can I use a Prepaid Tmn sim from Portugal, outside Portugal (e.g. Spain, Italy)?
Before buying the SIM, did you check with the provider/salesperson that it would work (roam) outside of Portugal? If required, did you activate roaming on the SIMs? Also, 60 euros sounds like a massive amount to spend on a PAYG sim.... Did you buy a lot of minutes or something? (€5-€10 is a much more typical purchase+activation amount)

comment How to pick a walking tour group, when there's a choice?
This question is inspired by me wanting to work out what the "best" walking tour will be for where I'm going this coming weekend, but knowing that asking a question for the "best walking tour in X" will be too subjective!
