Your question falls apart in several bits. First of all, you can start your photo series at home, getting ready for the travel, getting packed, things loaded in the transport that gets you to the airport, the parts of the airport where you can take photos and so on. You can take photos with other people in them, at least in Ireland and the UK, as long as you ...

There's an airport in the german city of Memmingen that is often referred to as "Munich West". The issue is that it is just 120km away from Munich.

Important nuance here: taking photos with people in them might be problematic as pictures can be considered personal data under GDPR So if you're taking pictures on the street, you have to ask for consent to feature someone in a shot. GDPR does not allow consent to be asked AFTER the photograph is made, only before. You might not have super big issues if ...

This example doesn't really count, but it's amusing. Avelo Airlines recently announced service to the Northern Colorado Regional Airport (FNL), which was known until a few years ago as the "Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport". No problem so far - the airport really is in Northern Colorado, 8 km from the city center of Loveland and 17 km from ...

In the United States, the Chicago Rockford International Airport (RFD) is a strong contender. It is located four miles south of Rockford, IL. It is about 90 miles (144 km) from downtown Chicago and about 70 miles (112 km) from ORD. Luckily there is a shuttle from RFD to ORD that runs every 2 hours, which is a trip that takes about 70 minutes. While ...

A US LPR returning to the US is exactly the same as a US citizen returning except the LPR will scan their I-551 (green card) in the machine rather than their foreign passport. Whether or not anyone returning via Global Entry will need to speak to someone seems pretty random. The most common conversation I've personally had is asking about the food items I'm ...

Money orders are not very useful in international travel. Technically, you may be able to deposit them at a foreign bank, but even then it will taken some time for them to clear. If you are looking for an option similar to money orders, travellers cheques could be somewhat better. In principle, they could be used for purchases or exchanged for cash in the ...

This doesn't really add much to chx's excellent answer. But... How can you possibly be in a situation where showing a money order is the only way to prove you have funds? Let's examine the possibilities? If you have good finances, but you've been dealing entirely on the basis of cash and have no statements, then stop travelling; open a bank account, get a ...

When you actually enter into the Schengen area, you have to show (on demand, not always) that you have the funds for subsistence during your stay. Usually that means a form which hotels, or supermarkets, or restaurants are going to accept as payment. There are countries which accept telegraphic money orders. And others which do not. But I agree with the ...

In short: we don't know as we are not border control and this is at their discretion but I have a suspicion. You didn't specify a country but you don't need to. The answer is no, no, no, no. People, you want to be boring at the border. We see saw many of these questions trying to outsmart border control, regulations -- but the border guard have already seen ...

They are more likely to make "last call" announcements if you have checked luggage, as they need to take if off the plane if you don't board and that usually takes even longer. Full-service airlines also usually make calls, especially if you're a frequent flyer or premium class passenger and/or they somehow know you are in the airport (e.g. you ...

No, they are not mandatory. These calls are nothing but reminder calls, you know the time and you know the limits and that's what counts. You most likely have checked a "I agree to terms" checkbox during your reservation which means you agreed on the following: Boarding closes 20 minutes before departure. Please have your valid travel document and ...

To answer the question, as others have said, No, you generally can't do international-to-international transit in the U.S. without clearing entry immigration inspection and, thus, entering the United States. (There have existed a handful of narrow exceptions to this over the years, such as for passengers continuing on a fifth-freedom flight to another third ...
