comment Are there any issues with using credit cards in Germany?
@DCShannon: Sorry, I read your comment and the actual question a bit too fast. You're right, this answer should say "In short: yes (there are issues)."

comment Are there any issues with using credit cards in Germany?
@DCShannon: Debit cards (EC, standing for "electronic cash" cards) are generally accepted. Not credit cards, because of the fees mainly and also because debit cards work like wire transfers which are a common way to pay (bills but also goods delivered to your door) in Germany.

comment Can I enter and exit a country immediately?
@Panzercrisis This is in the Schengen area, so no border checks today. It may have been different a few decades ago.

comment Advice for flying with a 6 month old infant?
There are special baby seat belts on some airlines (e.g. on all of them in Europe), that you buckle around your seat belt. A lot less dangerous that sharing the same belt, with the plus of having the kid not go loose and a better protection in case of a plane crash.

comment Why do hostels require you to 'rent' bedding?
A silk travelsheet can be not that expensive – you can find for example these in France (19 €).

comment Can I take a big jar of Nutella in my cabin luggage on a European flight?
@R..: Well, at least you wouldn't get drunk as this woman did, but your digestive system might not appreciate a pound or two of Nutella all at once… ;-)

comment Can I take a big jar of Nutella in my cabin luggage on a European flight?
You will have to throw it away at the security check. I saw it several times already, all across Europe: be it industrial and sealed Nutella or homemade jam from grandma, that's a gel and prohibited in cabin luggage (apart if you bought it from the duty-free shops). The only exception to the rule is baby food if you have a baby (it will only get scanned in a mass spectrometer and you may have to taste it) – but you'd have to convince the officer that you feed your baby with Nutella (good luck!).

You might want to ride a bike: it's flat and it will take you a little less than taking the buses (4h) but more than the train and ferry (3h).

comment Preparing for Greece to Exit the EU (Grexit)
You could also take some amount of money in another hard currency if you're really worried about the Euro and not only about Greece.

Be aware that cards are not very widely accepted in Greece.

comment Why is the departures level always above the arrivals level?
It may also be a security feature for immigration: it's more difficult to jump to the upper level than from the upper level to try to enter illegally. In some airports the immigration queues of arrivals and the waiting lounges of departures are in the same hallway but on different levels (e.g. RUH).
