comment What to do without underwear on a 4 day trip?
@sgroves Not true. I follow a checklist to pack my bag. If it is not on the packlist, I will forget it. But then, I use my own checklist.

comment 5-hour wait for a bus at Frankfurt airport
@CGCampbell And in the end you have the same lunch that you could have had in the airport, but then without rushing in and out of the city. Bring a good book to kill the time

@DavidRicherby Fair enough, but as a light sleeper myself it might actually work for me...

comment Most respectful way to set alarm when sharing the room
What about the alarms that get louder in time? I think this increasing volume alarm is quite standard on modern phones. I guess it might help?

No worries, in my opinion this is perfectly on topic for this SE!

comment How significant are advance purchase discounts on Dutch and Belgian railways?
If you are from the UK, you may be surprised that there is no advance purchase discount at all (at least on local trains in the Netherlands, not sure about Thalys). So there is no difference between 2 and 3. I can't help you on the other options though.

comment How much cash am I supposed to prepay at gas station in the US?
@AndreasBonini Here in the Netherlands there are also gas stations where you enter your PIN code upfront, and the precise amount is determined after you finish. You don't need to do anything else.

comment Why do trucks pass each other on the highway?
That is exactly why you should drive 100kph with 5m apart ;) I think this is enough for here. Notify me at chat if you want to discuss further.

comment Why do trucks pass each other on the highway?
@The111 Be aware that in Europe, we do not have the keep your lane principle. The truck drivers are not allowed to overtake you again on the right. Of course, in rush hour all this is not really relevant anymore. And traffic waves can be prevented by keeping more space, but that will sooner initiate traffic jams as well.
