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.

comment Preparing for Greece to Exit the EU (Grexit)
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).

comment Am I allowed to take a GPU in my carry-on luggage?
But then you'll probably have to pay import taxes or potentially get into customs trouble if they catch the shipment.

comment Driving a rental car from east to west coast of the USA as a visitor
Most of the time, you'll need a credit card and your driver's license. Which country are you / your papers from?

comment Visiting Monaco as an EU citizen — what to think about?
This really depends on cost vs. risk. I'm not aware of how much travel insurance costs for Monaco but it may be costly too. And seriously, all travelers to Monaco I know of do not take travel insurance just for a few hours/days in Monaco, with France at most at 1 km. But YMMV.

comment Can I bring an anti-religious book into Saudi Arabia?
"Drug smuggling is punishable by the local laws" = "Drug smuggling carries the death penalty, regardless of you being a foreigner or not"

comment Biometric passport: How can I know if the chip is still working? Does it matter?
Same for the automated entry lanes in France: you'll need a working ePassport or a passport (even non-biometric) previously registered at a PARAFE booth (you'll find them in big airports e.g. CDG and ORY).

comment What to do about my US iPhone while traveling around Europe?
And most carriers' stores (in France, Orange and SFR at least, probably Bouygues too) do have prepaid nano-SIMs too.

comment How do you pack your dirty clothing when moving from hotel to hotel?
I was always told that plastic bags are wrong, and cloth/cotton bags are way better to avoid moisture from staying in the dirty clothes. Afaik, moisture stimulates the bad odours and helps mould form; dry clothes stink less and can't be damaged by mould.

comment Is it common that hostels charge more for woman only dorm rooms?
This is at least unheard of in Western countries, as that would probably qualify as sex-based discrimination. And while I do travel quite often and outside Western paths, that's the first time I hear of such a thing!

comment Are there ways to keep long-distance land transport costs down in France when not planning in advance?
Now you can (but the change is recent); before, national passenger travel was a monopoly for the SNCF.

Or put them in a Unicef box at one of the participating airports.

comment Why do there seem to be no long distance buses in France?
Yes, the SNCF had a monopoly on both rail travel and national city-to-city travel since 1937... other operators had to get permission from the SNCF to open travel lines, and long-distance bus travel was seen as a direct competitor by the SNCF so never allowed.
