comment How does the US know that I left?
When I re-entered the US after a cruise, the only question the officer had on seeing my passport was whether I was flying home (to Canada) or driving. Flying? OK have a nice day. I was told later it was because they know when you leave if you fly, and if I had said driving I would have been given a form to hand in when I left.

comment Needing help booking a trip
You need to be a lot more specific, probably in a number of separate questions. What is it that you want to know about booking to Mexico, about booking to Bali, and so on?

comment Using Chip-and-Pin credit cards in the US?
the magnetic strip that today is a backup was once the cool new thing not all terminals could handle, which is why our cards still have raised numbers across the front for scrunchswiping the carbon imprinter across. And our new tap-only cards have chip-and-pin for backup when tap doesn't work.

comment Renting a Manual Car in the US
I can't speak to the US, but in Canada neither buying nor repairing manual transmission cars has been difficult. (However not all dealership employees can drive them, sometimes they have to get someone else to bring the car around to the front.) However buying a used one might be a different story.
