comment Is there a money machine in the Tel Aviv airport?
ATM's are pretty much ubiquitous in Tel Aviv and surrounding areas. And that include within Ben Gurion where you'll find plenty of them within the arrivals hall and elsewhere.

comment Why do some boarding passes fail to mention when gates close?
As a general rule, posting a copy of your boarding pass - including eticket number and/or booking reference - on a public website is normally not a good idea.

comment What are the lightest travel adapters/converters available for France?
Anything that adjusts voltage is going to be heavier than an equivalent device that doesn't, so by definition this isn't going to be the lightest as requested. Voltage conversion also almost certainly isn't needed for phone charging - basically all chargers are multi-voltage.

comment Can I cross the US/Canadian border with a copy of my US passport?
In a situation like this Canada allows you to withdraw your request for entry, which doesn't count against you in the future as you were never actually refused entry. A US citizen can never be refused entry into the US, regardless of a lack of documentation. The issues becomes proving you are a citizen, which can be done but takes time.

comment What does it mean to be in the fast lane in California?
You are mis-reading this section of the code. This is referring to the fact that on a two-lane road you must drive on the right-hand side of the road. It explicitly states that it does not apply "(d) Upon a roadway restricted to one-way traffic.", which is normally going to be the case for highways which are one-way on either side of some form of divider. California law does NOT generally require you to drive in the right-hand most lane as in some other countries, and in fact the driving handbook recommends against driving in the far right-hand lane on multi-lane highways in many cases.

comment Collecting luggage and checking them in again?
Automated Passport Control kiosks can only be used by people from ESTA countries that have entered the US at least once since 2008. As this is Angela's first time to the US, that won't be the case. The Mobile Passport App is not available for ESTA.

comment Car rental insurance in US with Canadian hired car
Do you have an American Express card? If so, check if you can get their "Premium" rental car insurance. $16-25/rental (NOT per day!). You probably won't be able to get it mid-rental, but at your next 30 day period.

comment Travelling after E3 Visa
The processing time is NOT a factor! Once you have received confirmation that the application to change status has been received then you can legally remain in the country. If it is approved, then you're good. If it is rejected, then you've still had 2.5 months (or more) of legal status!

Nope. Driver didn't charge me for the part of the trip where we were lost!

comment Is there a way to find an aircraft's statistics?
Find yourself a nice brick wall and repeatedly bang your head against it. It'll be more fun and far more productive than attempting to prove that an aircraft had a pre-existing problem causing your delay.

comment Hitchhike from Montreal to San Francisco
I know this isn't what you're asking, but you can fly from Montreal to SF anytime from next Thursday for C$278 (and probably even less if you make your way to the US and fly from there). Is 10 days of travel really worth more than C$278?

comment 70 minutes Layover at LAX
Definitely no security, no walking outside (T4-T8 are all connected airside now!). United do NOT use TBIT other than for a very small number of early-morning international arrivals before their own immigration hall in T7 opens. The return MEL-LAX IS one of the flights that uses TBIT 6 days a week, but not on the outbound.

comment Are there countries where people of a particular religion are refused entry?
Although it is not currently stated on their website, the official Saudi Government Tourism website has previously explicitely stated that visas would not be issues to "Jewish People" - web.archive.org/web/20030925131342/http:/…

comment Do I get a free checked-in luggage item on this flight?
Sorry, but as a general answer ('always') this is COMPLETELY WRONG. For some airlines it's the marketing carrier, for others it's the operating carrier.

comment What currencies can I use in Istanbul?
Having been to Turkey many times, most recently only a few weeks ago, LP has this wrong. Or at least, if not wrong, they are ignoring the fact that any shop accepting USD/Euro will do it at such a shocking rate that it's simply a stupid thing to do.

comment Computer/Technology oriented tourist attractions
In the "nearby" category is Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria. I found it great, but perhaps I'm biased due to having some of my work on display there :)
