Switzerland is bordered by Germany, Austria and Italy. Switzerland has open borders with those countries after the inclusion in Schengen Agreement. Switzerland is not an European Union (EU) member.

What documentation you ask? Registration of the vehicle in EU to be specific.
Austria, Germany or Italy, all EU countries, don’t allow vehicles to enter their territory without being registered in EU zone, even if you drive for tourist, sightseeing or personal reasons.

Often times we lose our smartphones while traveling and there are those great samaritans who go out of their way to return it back to us. And the easiest way to let them know is to have your mailing address or email address mentioned handy to them, especially if you’re like me who keeps a passcode on their phone.
There are ways you can track your smartphone and try and get in touch with someone on the other side, but if your phone is not in a persons hand, yet, then good luck getting it back.
Here’s a tip making it simple and easy to for someone trying to reach your loved one in case of emergency or for someone who wants to return your lost smartphone back to you:
Thousands of websites online let you book hotels and also compete for the lowest rate. But Stayful determines the lowest price you can use to bid on unbooked rooms at independent and boutique hotels.

After increasing visa fees and imposing ‘development tax’ in the last two months, Egyptian authorities have now decided to levy a new airport tax on travelers leaving the country.
The government started applying the roughly $25 fee on ticket purchases through airline companies last month, which means that the airline companies have been passing the charge directly on to customers buying tickets to and from the country, with it appearing as an additional tax on the ticket price.
Egypt’s tourism industry has been hit hard by the three years of turmoil since the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
Seasoned travelers and alike remind you to get travel insurance before the getaway that covers missed connections, delays, lost bags, medical and more. Although a lot of government/airline laws & regulations offer compensation, they are limited to lost bags or longer delays, but for most of them, you’re on your own.
For example, there’s no government or airline compensation if you suffer a long tarmac delay or a missed connection, although the airline might get fined if they don’t offer to deplane you after three hours, but none of that sees its way into your pocket. With all the loopholes and “conditions apply” policies, you have to fill out forms, make calls and all you get in return is peanuts!
But a new company from the people who started TravelGuard travel insurance (now part of AIG insurance), is trying to cover everything that is not covered elsewhere, with minimal effort on the part of the insured.

Last year in October, Mr. Jay Shah narrated his ordeal in dealing with Air France and his experience with their Paris staff, and now Snigdha Jain outlines her experience in London where British Airways staff behaved rudely and perhaps racially in handling their tickets for a flight from London to Mumbai.
Flying out of New York to London, Snigdha’s flight was delayed because of a staff error at LHR that prevented the plane at the gate to depart. This lead to her plane not being able to park on time making her miss the connecting flight to Mumbai.

The Argonne Anti-Jet-Lag Diet is helping travelers quickly adjust their bodies’ internal clocks to new time zones. It is also being used to speed the adjustment of shiftworkers, such as power plant operators, to periodically rotating work hours.
The diet was developed by Dr. Charles F. Ehret of Argonne’s Division of Biological and Medical Research as an application of his fundamental studies of the daily biological rhythms of animals. Argonne National Laboratory is one of the US Department of Energy’s major centers of research in energy and the fundamental sciences.

Best way to travel you ask? The oldest means of locomotion, also the most organic & natural way, is limbs down the most superior method. That is assuming that you are not just looking to go from point A to point B, but also interested in watching & imbibing everything in between.
To me personally walking is more than that. It is a form of non-still meditation. In a steady state it can even soothe frayed nerves & calm tormented psyches. But the benefits extend to other spheres too. I can’t think of a better way to build up an appetite than a slightly strenuous yet not punishing amble. Doing the same in a contrived room-size fishtank is not what I am talking about.
