How is sex seen in your culture? Only after marriage? If not, do people start having sex earlier or later than in Western culture?

Edit: does marriage even exist in traditional culture?

I bet he uses his mom's meatloaf to test new toilets.

And the fact that this will make you a potential target to be annexed by a different larger country

What exactly are you expecting? Italy just annexing catalonia? This would be met with absolutely humongous backlash and in my mind it's unthinkable.

Eurorail has some advantages though. You can arrive 5 minutes before the train leaves. This makes travelling a bit more relaxed. The actual travelling time might be longer, but the fact that you don't have to be at an airport an hour or two beforehand can cut travel time drastically!

Airports are often also located outside of the city. Get off the train in any city and you're right at the heart of it. Getting of central station in Amsterdam for example is fantastic (and the station itself is also a work of art).

You can also bring more luggage with you on trains. A big backpack might be too big for what ryanair allows on the flight without having to pay extra.

Trains also tend to have normal departure times. Want to leave at 9 or 11 in the morning? No problem. Ryanair might have times at 5 in the morning, which can suck.

Also, traveling by train is beautiful. I traveled from Austria to Italy by train. The landscapes were fantastic, and me and my buddies had a booth to ourselves with seats that slides down to form a kind of bed.

Biggest pro of all: adaptability. Were you planning on leaving a city tomorrow morning but you suddenly meet some awesome people who you want to hang out with? No problem, take the train a day or two later! With an airliner you might already have your ticket booked..

Good question! I'm in Seoul at the moment for a semester and before I left my parents gave me a Korea book by the Lonely Planet. Only browsed through it a bit before I left. For everything here I've just used the internet as it's a lot more convenient.
