Since I don't get there as often or for as long, I DO eat in restaurants
most of the time there.

Yes, I had a very reasonably priced travel medical policy with American
Express when I was traveling - it covered everything, including
repatriation and even a travel companion in the event of REALLY serious
illness. However, it only covered a trip of six months or less.

When I was teaching German, I used to take some German Christmas cookies to
school for my students. Some of them wanted recipes, so I shared those,
too. I only knew one whose mother tried one, but he said they didn't taste
like mine. She hadn't had any marjoram, which those cookies needed. I know
there are some Scandinavian baked goods use that, too. Norwegian, I think,
because at least one I learned came from a family with Norwegian ancestry.

In UK state issued I/D cards don't exist. UK passports for adults are valid for
ten years.

Only because you didn't try to buy bread and because you stayed in cheap ****
hostels/hotels. I've never had bad bread in France.

That's what they want the customers to believe. Dutch CA tests on so called
organic wines showed more chemicals added than are added to most normal wines.

There is no such thing as "German" bread. Each region has different
kinds of bread. In Bavaria bread often contains a lot of caraway, an
acquired taste for me.

German bread is a collective term. It includes all types of German bread from
all regions.

No, there just many kinds that vary locally for my definition of "German"

It was a group tour. The places we stayed were generally nice. The second
time they had this weiners and beans stuff as main course, I went back to
my hotel and skipped supper. Thin fish soup was even worse.
