Apologies in advance for doing your heads in with this visa query. My brain is fried! It's a question about the Schengen zone ’90 days in 180 days’ rules. I've read everything on it and it's still making no sense. The online Schengen zone calculator is not helping. Informal advice from my workplace (Int. Org.) is don’t worry about it, nobody checks. But I’m worried! And the Australian embassy gave me nothing. This is about a family member, let’s say M (Australian citizen). If anyone is an expert of, or interested in, visa enquiries, please help!
M first arrived in France 28 April 2017, and she returned to Aus. 11 June 2017. That’s 45 days. (Assuming the 180 day period begins when she arrived on 28 April 2017, that means that this 180 day period ends 28 October 2017).
Then, M returned to France 26 August (so still within that 180 day period) and will leave 5 November (So technically that is illegal. It is a little more than 90 days, and over the 180 days).
Does this mean, that M should return to Australia on 9 October? That would make it 45 days from the start of her second arrival on 26 August (totalling 90 days in 180 days, and still within the 180 day period).Does this also mean that she can technically return on 29 October 2017? Because then the 180 days will be reset?
If this is correct, the stupid online Schengen zone calculator doesn't work!

Hi guys :) I only have 6 weeks left in Bucharest and I'm trying to understand what I still need to see. I'm making a Bucket List with unique cafes, museums, sights, parks and I was hoping I could get some recommendations from you. I was hoping for places that are not too touristy :) as I think I have already seen all of those. Any suggestion is welcome and I will try to see every place you recommend. Thanks!!

I remember traveling with my parents in the 70s (when flying was much more of a luxury and privilege than it is these days), and remember there was a hold luggage check restriction - although the check in clerk would often not bat an eye for a kilo or 2 overweight.

But I don't remember the humiliation of having to force whatever hand luggage we were carrying into a metal frame to be permitted to take it on-board!

Does anyone know when this came into being, and any of the history behind it?

We are planning to take a year to live in Chiangmai. We would like to live in the city in close proximity to shopping etc. We are from the U.S. and are in our early 50's. We plan to spend 50-70 % of our time in Chiangmai and to travel to other places ( China, Cambodia, Vietnam etc) the remaining time. We are planning to come over early 2018 and intend to stay about 1 year initially. I'm sure I will ask a lot of questions but here are a few to start. Accommodations - would it be better to buy or rent? Planning to stay for 1 year however we will consider a longer more permanent stay depending on how we like it Pets - we have a small 7 lb toy poodle. Any challenges bringing a pet? How about vets? Boarding if we travel? Retired Visa - how hard is it to get the over 50 visa? Is the process hard from the states? Is it better to come to Chiangmai to do paperwork and to find a condo or apartment? Healthcare - any thoughts on healthcare insurance? Pay as you go? Traveling - any problems going to surrounding countries for short visits? Thank you I advance and sorry for so many questions.

I'm looking at moving to the Gulf. Advice needed. From what I can see these two; Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the ones in closest contention for me. I'm into arts and food; so I'm thinking the more laid back approach of Abu Dhabi maybe suit me better. There are more flights from where I live to Dubai, but from what I read is that Dubai will run out of oil in maybe 10 years, whereas they will keep pumping in Abu Dhabi until long after I'm gone. This will likely have an impact on property values in the near future? I don't know how reliant Dubai still is on it's oil - I'd guess a lot? What does the future hold?
