comment What is the actual (not official) size of the Ryanair “baggage sizer”?
@PeterPerháč I get your point but the size allowed by Ryanair is really small. Expecially during winter/autumn, when you really need to bring with you clothes that occupy more space having such a small luggage means you will surely have to board an extra luggage.

"insinuate"? I guess you are taking it a little bit too seriously but I will quit here since I don't like this flame-like things.

Let's put it this way: I was suggesting other users what I would like to be in other answers to be better than this one.

@Karlson mine was just an example to explain why I would wait for another reply before marking the answer as accepted.

I was thinking about something more "Ireland/UK related". The site you provided is probably very complete when it comes to the USA but, for example, the number of italian resorts listed is not comparable to the one you have here: dovesciare.it (a specialized italian site, you can see the list of places opening the drop down list "scegli una località" on the right).

The blue box has always been bigger than the allowed size (I guess 90% of the carry on luggages I've seen wouldn't pass a strict control). Now it is just "less bigger" than before.

comment Which is the best city to stay around Milan for trips to different cities around?
Could you tell us if you are the kind of traveller interested also in minor places (I mean cities around 50000 inhabitants) or if you only like the big cities?

comment How do you drive a British car? Is it with the left hand and foot or right?
"People differ in regards to whether one should use the left or the right foot to control the clutch": controlling the clutch with the right foot? Really?! I can't figure out how they can!

comment Cockroaches in the hotel, what can I do and what are my rights
thank you for the reply. I know that you can report the problem to the hotel (anyway in this case they clearly already knew it) but what I would like to understand is if you are expecting something in turn when you report it since in the end you spent money to sleep there.

If you want to go east you should also consider the 5 terre: they are only 90 km from Genova.

comment What times do hostels allow you to check in?
I agree with @Vince: every hostel has its own check in time. Moreover, usually every web site specifies the allowed check-in time in the description of every hostel.

@RoryAlsop, it is subjective but I guess that an objective answer could be given taking into considerations some profesional wine guide.

comment Rent a car in United States (Las Vegas) paying cash
I mark your answer as accepted and I improve it with what I was replied to by Alamo when I asked them the same question. "Cash payment will only be accepted upon return of the rental vehicle. In order for you to pick up you must provide the rental agent with a valid credit card or debit card in the renter's name.". So, it really seems to be hardly possible to rent a car without having a credit card

comment Rent a car in United States (Las Vegas) paying cash
Yes Gagravarr, probably your comment could be part of a response. I found out that some agencies require additional 30 $ per day as deposit if you want to pay cash, other people tell about 1000 $ deposit. What I'm looking for is real experiences in this field or, even better, somebody employed in this field willing to explain the policy without using "maybe", "it could be", "if you are lucky" and so on.

comment Ryanair: Wearable luggage, where's the limit?
@feklee, there is a missunderstanding: I was replying to the comment of Russel McMahon who stated that Ryanair is usually unfair and unreasonable in any possible situation just because it doesn't close an eye when a person wants to bring on board a (let's say) 15 kg bag. For what concerns your question, I agree there is a gray area. In my opinion you should check if these pouches on a pals webbing could be "legally" classified as a bag. I would say so but I'm not a lawyer, so it is just guessing.

Or you could simply respect the "contract" you agreed to when you bought the ticket and you won't spend an euro more than their normal cheap price. The fact that other companies usually close an eye (or both) doesn't mean Ryanair is unfair.

comment How do you choose a restaurant when travelling?
@mindcorrosive, I don't agree that much with avoiding the places with the highest number of positive reviews. Usually they really are the best choice and you can always book a table in advance. For what concerns the restaurants here in Italy I would add this rule of thumb: try to avoid the restaurants with a big illustrated menu translated in english outside the door, they are usually tourist traps.
