comment How to safely transport external hard drives during air travel?
@Valentin - Of course, it is less needed but it mostly depends on the casing. Some are made of metal, while others are entirely plastic with the rubber padding between the disk and case. The latter would not need an anti-static bag.

comment Can I go out of LA airport during a layover without a visa?
It depends on your citizenship which you have not disclosed. The luggage will usually be tagged to your final destination, so you would normally not have access to it in L.A.

comment Which side of the Zagreb - Ljubljana Train has more scenic views?
Indeed, the left side was much nicer. Just an oddity though, some train cars had all the seats on the left, others on the right, so we have to make sure to choose the right car.

You beat me to it! That's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to.

comment Mosquitoes in Plitvice National Park
No mosquitoes today or yesterday. Lots of other harmless bugs but nothing that bites yet and they usually find me easily!

comment Mosquitoes in Plitvice National Park
Yes, we will be carrying bug spray but when there are bugs, I usually adjust my clothes to be more covered because that is more efficient than repellent in my experience which of course has to be balanced with how hot it will be. For forecast if for rather high temperatures when we get there next week.

Do Europe trains allow travelers on the roof? I did it in South America, it gives very nice views. I haven't travel by train in Europe for over 30 years but I don't remember seeing that.

Seriously? This is a legitimate question and there are similar ones for Kunas in Croatia and Euros in Gibraltar. Forints are hard to come by here, they must be ordered, so I was wondering if I can just get by with Euros considering most things I looked for (boats, boats, hotels, etc) are quote in Euros already!

Good to know! Did you buy any transit tickets? Is it possible with Euros?

comment Where is the Asia-Europe divide and where can we cross it?
@JoeBlow - They're official enough that we learn about these continents in grade school. I've been taught this and my children too. It's also in official education book! I don't think you analogies hold up, those are comparisons while Europe and Asia are distinct continents in a huge number of publications.
