Swiss is very good!

Swiss is good, Zurich is so easy to transit in. Yes you need transit visa for Canada but didn’t see that was the case with LH or LX

OP, I am not sure if you know this already, but if traveling via connecting Swiss, Lufthansa or Air Canada flights and transiting via some soecific airports, your parents will require a prior transit visa. This requirement is typically hidden in the T&C so please read up on it. Many folks are turned away at the check in counter for not meeting this requirement

For airports within EU, historically we have not needed a transit visa. I'll still double check though, thanks

My dad is a bit financially strict (borderline financially abusive) to my mom, so I want to set up a way to give her allowance money regularly on the DL. Would this be best done by setting up a credit card account for her? Or a separate checking account to which I deposit money every month? How would you do it? TIA!

Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it? No, just me? Are there any true indicators for knowing whether you did well in an interview or nah?
