Up In The Air / starpoints question
« on: July 22, 2008, 01:37:46 PM »
if somebody besides myself stays at a starwood property would it work if they put my spg number? do they check to make sure the name on the reservation matches the name on the spg account or do they just give the points to whatever numbers in the reservation?

How do you transfer mileage on Matmid, from one account to another Matmid account? Can I do it on the web or do I have to call them?
i dont think you could transfer from one acoount to another. you could however redeem miles from your account in somebody elses name

Check out the Israeli charter websites such as issta.co.il daka90.com eshet-tours.com http://www.gulliver.co.il/gulnet/index.html. These work best closer to the date of departure. The cheapest flights will be to Turkey and Greece. You could get lucky to more traditional places as well.
do such websites exist for american departures?

I heard that the Sistine Chapel is just a room. Even though they elect the pope from that room doesn't meant that they pray in it. Either way we skipped it, but I see no issur in going in. It's a big room with a bunch of art.
there are poskim who assur it

sherry casks is not a problem. if you look in the shulchan oruch (i dont have it in front of me but if you want i will find it for you) it is only nosen ta'am lshvach for wine. for any other liquid wine in the walls of the barrel is nosen ta'am lifgam. when i learnt smicha i was told this clearly by the rosh machon smicha
i think that there are prominant poskim who permit sherry casks

I also thought that I needed to book rail tickets in advance, but once we got there we realized it was no big deal. Every train station has a booth with a live agent to help you, and many self serve machines for you to buy tickets. The machines have English as an option and are very straightforward. We never had a problem.

Anti-Semitism did not seem to be a problem. We wore caps the whole time, but I can assure you that even with that, people knew we were Jewish.

I remember now that we also did the Louve in Paris, and on Friday in Venice we went to St. Marks Square and to the Doji Palace (which is spelled "dolce" I think).
did you go on the super fast eurostar at all? i understand that for that particular train you need a res

It's not called a converter, it's called an adapter. A converter will convert the voltage from 220-240 to 110-120. You just need an adapter that will make the plug the right size to fit, since basically every laptop charger is rated for 110-240 although you should check just to be sure.
thanks thats what i meant, for 3 shekel you cant get a converter

Anyone here know how to charge an American laptop in Israel? Can I just use a converter or do I need one of those fancy transformer things???
Thanks :)
usually just  a 3 shekel converter  to be sure check the cord and make sure it says 100v-240v

We bought them there, there are self service machines (in english)
even for the fast eurostar where you need a reservation with a seat?
