UK for the first time!

Jump to last reply

Hello all!

I did some searching on here, but I thought I'd just ask my questions as they come:

I'm traveling to Europe and leaving North America for the first time.

-I've seen COUNTLESS electronic adapters online. Are there ones that are better than others?

-On the plane, I got coach tickets cause first class was WAY too expensive. Are these seats like the ones you'd sit in to fly cross-country in USA? If so, that's not gonna fun...

-What did you guys do on the plane for 8 hours? I have awful ADD lol

-What are some things you wish someone had mentioned to you about air traveling to Europe for the first time before you went?

-I have a 6 hour layover in Dublin. Is it a nice airport?

-While I was in Canada, i learned the debit card system was much different than America's. Is it the same in Europe? Can I just use my debit card as a plain ole credit card?


Thanks so much for any help!
