comment What to do about my US iPhone while traveling around Europe?
nano SIM is cut down (yes, physically cut) version of normal SIM. Cutters cost peanuts. For example one for $3 on Amazon. Many places where they sell SIMs will cut it for you.

comment EU: Medical insurance mandatory at border control?
@mouviciel: eh? "anyone who is insured by or covered by a statutory social security scheme of the EEA countries and Switzerland". Why would you say that it doesn't apply for non-citizen residents? The part of the article you linked to only talks of Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

comment Is it possible to get a Russian visa with a Dutch passport while holding the Russian nationality?
I was under the impression that Dutch have anti-double nationality laws, thus you cannot legally have Dutch and any other nationality (except very short list of circumstances).
