Having lived in the Western United States my whole life, I have found the example of the European traveler to be quite informative. I believe that when Europeans travel to the United States they actually see more of the country than we residents do. But, my blogs are not really supposed to be about me and my issues. My blogs are supposed to be about information that other moms need to keep their families safe and healthy. I just wanted to share about Chris and let everyone know what a great guy he was and that without him there would be no Mom at the Meat Counter.
Train wise, you can experience travel at about 300 km/h as far as Munich on the TGV and then a couple of classic sleepers between Munich, Budapest and Bucharest. There is great joy to be had sleeping on a train arriving ready for a new day in a fresh city. I have yet to try the Belgrade route, I understand while slightly faster, the sleepers are not quite as good.
Law is very very unsettled in most places about searches and compulsion to decrypt, and I do not wish to make any claims about what any country’s laws are and their consequences, but I will point out that in some jurisdictions governments have more power to conduct searches at boarders then they might elsewhere. So not having the data with you at a border may be of value.
Scarves are fabulous for travel. I have several scarves and depending on the weather, I choose one that I can use in the beach over my bathing suit, use another to enhance a dress in the beach for a very nice dinner, or keep me warm in the are so light that I can easily put them in my purse. If I have 5 silk scarves, they occupy almost zero space rolled up and it gives me 5 outfits with 1 dress.

If you’ll be traveling all over the world, you obviously can’t be expected to know the language and customs of every place you visit. As far as language goes, it helps to at least be able to read some phrases in the local language, and it’s usually considered polite to at least greet people in their native language, so its’ a good idea to learn at least that much.
