comment Can I take a two pin travel adapter plug in my hand luggage?
many people do - they can be vital to using the power plugs in the airport, after all.

comment Entering the US with US citizenship pending
agreed. But one of the things they assess when deciding to let you in as a visitor is whether you're a "stay risk" or not. And anyone with pending paperwork that will allow them to move to the US is a stay risk when they visit. So you bring paperwork to reassure them that you really will leave when you say you will.

comment What is the best way to travel from IST to Istanbul?
if you have a layover and are planning a little self-guided touring, your best bet may be the free tour the airport provides. It's well described in other Istanbul questions here.

comment I am a UK state pensioner (dual citizenship) now living in Canada returning for a 3 week visit to UK - will NHS cover me?
same reason I do - born in the UK, lived in Canada since 1969, use a Canadian passport for everything. Perfectly legit.
