Bring a towel or blanket, some baby wipes, and optionally a small trowel or a stick you picked up along the way. A few small plastic bags are also helpful. If someone (especially a small child) can't wait until you can exit, pull over at a safe spot. A safe spot has a shoulder significantly wider than the car, and you pull as far off as you can without ...

Let me first state that I've lived in Dubai for a solid 19 years (years 0 to 19). In these 19 years, I have done almost everything there is to do in Dubai and been almost every place there is to go (including going to night clubs even though I was under age). At the outset, let me clarify this: I'd wish to visit Dubai with my girlfriend, but after ...

It does indeed appear that your question is asking for opinions, but as an experienced cabin crewmember I can say that in this case there definitely is a best setup: The best option would be 3 + 2, the two seats are from the adjacent row, not the one behind or front: Here's why: If behind/font, it's actually harder to communicate visually, standing up is ...

Some do some don't. Most larger hotel chains (Marriott, IHG, Hilton, etc.) will offer this. Typically you either get a room with two double/queen beds or a single large bed with added "rollaway" bed(s) for the kids. Rollaway is often charged extra. Pretty much every Internet hotel search engine allows you to search for 1 room/4 persons. Easy enough !

The likelihood here is that you are getting scammed. Your narrative fits a well-known profile. In comments you wrote... Actually My solicitor wants to take administrative review he said everything is okay we just need to show bank statement with administrative review where is clearly salary transactions we dont need to reapply , I am not getting ...

Various online sources (Lonely Planet, Tripadvisor, USA Today, Dubai FAQ) seem to agree that as long as you don't start making out in public and telling people that you're not married, or attract the attention of the police in other ways, you'll be breaking the law but are very unlikely to get into trouble. People in general, and hotel staff especially ...

I stayed a long time in rural Aceh, so here are my tips: First of all, do not think of Indonesians as very religious. They are usually traditionalist (some may say conformist). This is different. Cover yourself You should both wear pants below the knees and real shirt (no tank top), no cleavage, no belly button displayed. Nobody will throw rocks at you if ...

If you are travelling together, I suggest always staying together as a family. Hand the immigration officer all your passports, and he or she will probably ask "Are you a family?" before opening them. Say yes of course, and they should have no problem processing you all together. Since you are a US citizen, you and your family can use the line for US ...

A well prepared fighter pilot driver will be equipped with a Urine Collection Device (UCD) A typical UCD consists of a small container with a dehydrated sponge inside, connected to a tube which in turn is connected to a funnel-like orifice that is adapted to the user's anatomy (different designs are used for men as compared to women). The user ...

There is no minimum age threshold where a child can be exempt from the requirements. Malagasy people are visa nationals and so each child must have an entry clearance in their own passport. In the pre 9/11 era, children could travel with an amendment in their parent's passport, but it is no longer allowed. As a knock-on effect to requiring separate ...

Your mother-in-law (American) applied for entry clearance as a visitor and was refused. In her previous visit she applied to live here permanently {FLR(O)} and was refused and likely was issued removal paperwork. Her current refusal cites 4.2 (b), they use this if someone has spent more time in the UK than in their own country... will not live in the ...

Each person (including children) needs to file a separate application. Based upon your text, the recommended strategy is... Your wife applies first and records her GWF number. She schedules her biometrics enrolment on a day that appears totally open. You apply second and put your wife's GWF number in the remarks section of the application and explain that ...

Huh. I traveled with my wife and two kids throughout Europe and Asia. It never occurred to me that a hotel might object to the level of occupancy, and none ever did. Some hotels charge for extra guests, but those are adult guests. I was never asked to pay extra for kids, even in their mid-teens.

Maybe you know it already, but might be helpful for other readers, too: wheelmap.org It's an OpenStreetMap where users can mark if places/buildings are wheelchair accessible. You can filter the map to only show places related to tourism. Also, at least in Germany, some cities/areas have accessibility guides that list accessible hotels, free time activities ...

Given what you have described, the refusal notice is not altogether unreasonable. Your wife is settled in the UK with ILR and you have a child born there who acquired British citizenship from her mother. Your employment situation is not the best and you haven't been paid regularly. I assume that you and your wife cannot meet the financial hurdles in ...

I think you'd be pleasantly surprised by the museums - they're VERY interesting and not at all dry, especially the new Darwin Center at the Natural History Museum. People tend to be quite polarised about the London Eye - but the ability to go up high above central London in a glass ball is fun for all. Richmond Park (if walking is ok) is a great trip just ...

I live in east Java and have been to Sumatra before, though I traveled alone so I have no direct experience traveling as an unmarried couple. However I have heard of foreigners being asked if they were married and even of people being denied a room together, but it's rare. Usually they are more lax when it concerns tourists, especially so in the touristic ...

Further to earlier answers, the information given so far is bit vague and so might mislead. The EU spouse has very strong rights to travel freely within the whole of the EU (Schengen is irrelevant to this) with their spouse and children. These rights include the right for the Third Country national to live indefinitely and work in the member state ...

A Chevy Suburban is an absurdly large truck. It won't handle like a car, it won't fit in some parking spaces, and there may even be a few people left in America who will look at you funny for driving such a monster. Let's start from the smaller end and work our way up, shall we? I'm looking the Hertz offerings because it's one of the most major rental ...

Honestly, adult incontinence products are inexpensive, highly effective, comfortable and hygienic. For example, a packet of 15 iD Slip Maxi all-in-one briefs (essentially adult diapers) costs £10 (66 p each), holds about 3-4 litres of urine, is dermatologically tested, safe, discrete, and comfortable. Glider and fighter pilots use such products, as do ...

Lisbon is known as the "City of the Seven hills". That means its kind of up and down a lot of the time. The most flat areas are near the river. I'm born and raised in Lisbon and it was until I went around with my own children that I realised some possible problems that are worth sharing here. To compensate for these "down sides" I should say also that ...

I have travelled a lot in various parts of the world, and from experience I can add to the other points - wear wedding rings. Most people will assume you are married anyway if you are sharing a room. Never admit to being unmarried among older people, or you may get treated badly. Again, I speak from experience. Among younger people you can tell them you are ...

The Google Map of the Red Light Disrict is a bit misleading. It highlights the De Wallen district but in reality the majority of the "windows" are in a smaller area inside this district hugging Oudezijds Voorburgwal along the canal and in and around the De Oude Kerk church. It can be hard to visit Amsterdam and not see the "sights" of legalised ...

An English male friend of mine always has several small milk bottles in the car, neck of which are big enough to allow them to be used as 'hospital bottles' and the tops are closing well enough to keep the contents in when done properly. Store them top up when used to make double sure. Select the size of the milk bottles based on need. Me, a female, ...

Take the Docklands Light Railway from the Bank. The trip is scenic past some very modern buildings built around the old docks of London. It is also cool with driver free trains for the technically interested. Get off at Island Gardens and walk west along the water to Greenwich foot tunnel. An old tunnel under the Thames with elevators or stairs in both ...

Places selling cannabis (“coffeshops“) aren't restricted to a particular part of town and can't be avoided entirely (to be accurate, their locations are in fact regulated through a permit system and they are required, e.g., not to be too close from a school, but they are not restricted to one specific neighbourhood). On the other hand, there is not much to ...

Your sister will not be visiting the UK for your birthday this year, and quite likely next year also. The first paragraph of your refusal explains that while your sister nominally submitted the correct documents, their quality was such that they had no evidential value. He noted that an endorsement from a chartered accountant is of no value if the tax ...
