comment Why police didn't even block me once at the airport arrivals?
@Aluminum I still don't get it why the should. As far as I know the police in Italy does not stop random people if they don't strongly believe that someone is suspicious. So maybe you just do not look like a drug dealer :)

@Aluminum Imho drugs are only very rarely carried by passengers on normal flights. There much safer ways to do so.

comment Will I get into trouble at customs if I take electronic devices for thousands of dollars into India?
Just as a follow up: I took all these devices with me and no one even asked me any question about them.

comment Can I drive into Ukraine with my car?
I want to know if I can just get into my car and drive over there or if somebody will stop me at the border and ask for any other documents than the passport.

comment What cities are close to Zurich that have great history around WWII?
If you really want to see WWII sights, I would go to Dachau or you could visit some fortress in the Swiss Alps if you're ok with staying in Switzerland. (I have seen that you want to go outside of Switzerland, but if you only have maybe half a day, that would be an option)

comment How can I travel flexibly around the US?
I also cast a reopen vote. The marked duplicate is quite similar and possible helpful, but in no way does it answer this specific question and neither is the question the same at all.

However, it seems that there is valuable information available in the blog. @MonacoAddit: could you please summarize this info in your answer here?

They just said that they're sorry and they will try to avoid it in future.

comment Is it usual to leave luggage out in the rain at an airport?
Unfortunately this seems to be at least not unusual. My backpack was once on the top of a luggage truck and right before it could be loaded into the aircraft, they had to stop, since a major thunderstorm hit Buenos Aires. We had to wait at the airport for a couple of hours and my luggage was still out there. When I finally got it back a 13 hours flight later, everything in my backpack was socking wet. I was really pissed off and complained about it.

So what's the problem? It seems that TinEye is better in this case than Google.
