comment How to receive goods ordered on the internet, while in the USA
You'll need to check with the hotel, but many are happy to have a package arrive a week before you do, and hold it for you until checkin. Some are fine with just your name on the pakcage, others want "Your Name, Guest XXX to YYY, <hotel name and address>". Ask and find out! (Expect to pay a few dollars fee though to the hotel)

comment Do I need to show amount of money at airport in France?
I think you've answered a different point - the OP isn't worried about it from the customs point of view, they're worried they might have to show proof of funds to the immigration officer deciding about letting them in or not

comment What's the best money option for US travelling?
Different Credit Cards can also charge different overseas fees, so it can also be worth looking into getting one with lower / no fees before you go (assuming they exist in your country of residency)

comment Where to rent a non-city bike in Amsterdam for a reasonable price?
IIRC, racing bikes are not really the "done thing" for getting about town in the Netherlands. You'll see them out in the countryside and on long distance cycle routes, but not usually in the city, which may well explain why you're struggling to find a cheap rental as it isn't common

comment Which country to leave the Schengen area for 90 days and come back?
My reading of that is you could have 90 days in a non-Nordic Schengen country, then 90 days in Denmark (assuming you're from the right country), but because Denmark is Schengen you still need to spend 90 days outside Schengen after that before you can head back to any Schengen country (inc Denmark)

comment How to book and stay several days at transit point
To book the ticket, try your favourite travel agent, or online booking system. No issues what so ever, most will happily sell you it as a Multi-City trip

comment A flight I booked months ago just got rescheduled dramatically, into a time that is not possible for me, what can I do?
Rules are likely to depend on what country you're departing from, what country you're flying to, what country your airline is based in, and how much notice they have given you. Some jurisdictions offer more protection in this sort of situation than others

comment How to buy one airplane seat and reserve adjacent ones?
BA will sell you a second seat, for either yourself or for your bulky hand luggage (up to you!), but you have to ring to book as you can't do it online. It's pretty cheap, as they don't charges taxes / fees / surcharges, which on an economy ticket can be a large part of the cost!

comment Is it possible to sit at a seat of higher class, for free, after boarding a flight?
I believe the term commonly used is "Self Upgraders", and they are normally spotted and ejected back to their normal seats...

comment Prepaid data on an unlocked iPhone 5s for a visit to Spain
I'd hazard a guess that there's at least half a dozen suitable providers, assuming you buy on or just after arrival. What have you looked into so far?

Assuming the flight isn't late that is!
