comment British citizen, why does my South-African wife need a visa to visit me in the UK?
I withdraw my comment! Having just visited SA, I can understand why it's in the top 10. I'll delete my comments.

comment How to behave in a museum?
As someone who often goes "against the flow" (partially I think because I'm left-handed), I would be quite offended if anyone but a museum guard/employee asked me to change direction. If it was very crowded or a special exhibit, then I'd mind it more excusable.

comment Bringing carseat on flight
@Ida thanks! I debated the CARES and decided to try without. Some struggles, but we would have had that with the CARES too!

comment Bringing carseat on flight
Lufthansa specifically states "Child restraint systems that only consist of straps which fasten over and/or around the back of the seat cannot be utilised on board." Would that include the CARES system?

comment Bringing carseat on flight
I just went through 30+ hrs each way with 2 3yo. I understand! We had some issues with keeping seat belts fastened, so very good point. Car seats will have to be put in the inside seats, so I'm worried about the arms/drink holders overlapping.

comment Bringing carseat on flight
My first impression--it's going to be too wide AND too heavy to drag around. Go to Wal-Mart or K-Mart or somewhere and look for a lightweight, narrow, simple, inexpensive car seat and take those with you instead. OTOH, The 3 yo should be able go without a car seat on the plane, so check one, and carry one onboard. That might fit. Usually airlines will check car seats or strollers and not count it against your luggage allowance although I could not confirm that on Lufthansa's site.

comment Getting a very short visitor visa for the US as an Indian citizen
She's fleeing an abusive relationship? So, no access to funds but she does have access to her passport? Because otherwise, how is she going to leave the country?

comment Traveling via Dubai without Visa
If you run the IATA visa app on the Emirates.com website, it says that you can transit without a visa: Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours. However, there is other information returned that makes it unclear whether that is true or not.
