comment Eating cat meat as a tourist in Switzerland
I had to slightly correct my comment from above. Your best chance is probably Ticino.

comment Eating cat meat as a tourist in Switzerland
It's definitively quite uncommon in Switzerland and you won't find it in any restaurant. Your best chance is probably when you try to get invited for dinner by a local farmer family in Appenzell. It's quite a open secret that they sometimes eat dogs, and very rarely probably also cats. Other than that, I see no options to get cat meat in Switzerland.

comment In the US, what is the difference between a national park and a national monument?
I think this question fits both sites and since it was asked here, I'm going to cast the missing reopen vote.

comment Teletext Subtitles on Romanian Television
I'm going to reopen this question, because it is a real problem you can face during traveling.

Since OP hasn't returned for a couple of month to answer the important question about his citizenship, I'm going to close this one.

comment From Italy to Austria during winter, by car
But what for example if you rent a car in Bozen in January? Clearly you should use winter tires then. I'm not sure if it's just not the car rental agency's problem. They have to provide you with a car that is safe to operate and without winter tires it is clearly not safe.

comment How do I print a boarding pass from the Spirit Airlines website?
Since OP did not return for any clarification for more almost 3 months now, I'm putting this one on hold.

comment Dubai immigration problem
I think he is asking if he will get in trouble when he travels to Dubai, because his brother, who has the same surname, is in trouble for owning banks some money.

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.

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)
