comment During a SNCF strike, how can I check what trains will run without going to the station?
Note that if your train has been canceled due to a strike, you can use it without any prior formality on any train the day before, the same day or the day after. Which isn't to say that turning up early at the station is a good idea, but you don't need to exchange your ticket. You can also get a full refund if you choose not to travel. This holds for all ticket types, even ones that do not otherwise allow modifications or cancellation.

comment Trains in Vietnam
As it stands, your question is very broad. I suggest that you read the Seat 61 page; then, if you have remaining questions, ask something more specific.

comment Sufficient Identification for Intra Schengen flights
@Karlson IIRC, as an EU/etc citizen, you have a fundamental right to be there, and you are merely required to demonstrate that you have this right, with an official document being the only guaranteed mean but not an absolute requirement. Whereas as a non-EU/etc citizen, you must be able to produce an official travel document.

comment Sufficient Identification for Intra Schengen flights
Your source directly contradicts your opening statement. Quoting the previous sentence from the source: “If you are an EU national, you do not need to show your national ID card or passport when you are travelling from one border-free Schengen EU country to another”. A valid passport, ID card or other travel document is recommended, but any means of proving your EU citizenship to the requester's satisfaction is legally sufficient. The recommendation of official ID is because of the inherent uncertainty of the requester's satisfaction. Airlines may have their own, more restrictive conditions.

comment Hong Kong Airport – Macau – Hong Kong
@uncovery Oh? I thought it was possible to collect your luggage at the airport and then take the ferry exit. Turbojet even mentions a possibility of “baggage reclaim at Air/Sea Transfer Desk”. Do you have a reference?

comment Navigo Decouverte at Orly airport - opening time
If Orly and Versailles are as far out as you'll go, zones 1–4 are enough. Note that the weekly pass runs from Monday to Sunday, not an arbitrary 7-day period.
