I've been backpacking around the globe for the past three years and reflecting on that whole experience I have come to realize that I enjoyed the times when I was staying/working at one place for a longer period of time and got to experience and live the day to day lifestyle of the locals, make friends and get to know them on a deeper level and find my way around the place I have enjoyed my time a lot more than rushing in and out of 2 hostels a week, meeting people for a day or two and then moving on.
Therefore I would like to try to do more of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to be operating Airbnbs in downtown Vancouver. I have a few questions for some experienced hosts who take Airbnb seriously and use it as a significant source of income.
1 - Do you meet your guests or let make them pick up keys at key holding services?
2 - How do you deal with neighbors/security/property mangers, and how do you make your airbnb as discrete as possible?
3 - Do you offer your guests parking? New strange cars in the apartments parkade every couple days seems like a dead giveaway for those investigating possible Airbnbs in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1135248 1) I meet them if possible, if i'm not around, they can pick the keys at a shop in the same street. 2) I don't deal with it. Nver had any problem. 3) I live in the middle of Strasbourg. My street is closed for car. Parkings are outside of the city. 4) Depends on where you live. I don't really rise my price during holidays. 5) Never. I don't have a building manager. 6) Depends of what you want. I don't rent to people 30+, lifestyle too different. On phone, i just check if i have... Comment too long.

>>1135248 Hosting in Venice, Italy 1) I always meet my guests and talk to them, I explain where the places of interest are, where to buy groceries, where to eat and reply to anything they ask about 2) nosy neighbours are easily silenced if you have all the authorizations, same goes for homeowners. If you intend on doing this illegally forget it. No matter what precautions you take, guests will end up making themselves obvious and you'll be in trouble. Couch surfing might be a better option if this is how you roll 3)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1135316 >if the guest asks for discount, pay in cash, asks to see the house beforehand
These seem like reasonable requests, you had bad experiences with people making them? Also any other group of people in addition to mainland Chinese which are trouble? I was doing student exchange with Spaniards and don't think I'll ever let group of them into my property.

I'll be on the road for about a month and I'm looking mostly into clubbing, partying, drinking all kinds of shit and getting shitfaced mostly. I'm 21 and will be the first time I'll be out of the country.

Me and my friend were traveling. He was the one who directly rented the flat and he and our host left a review on each other's page. Can I review my host as well? My host's review for me and my friend (on her account) automatically appears on my Airbnb page

First time posting on /trv/. Please forgive me if this is too off subject.
Hubby and I are wanting to eventually end up somewhere in Oregon or Washington (most likely Oregon near Portland or right on the coast).
We currently live in Tennessee, at least 2500 miles away from where we'd want to move to. I wanted to know if anyone had any long-distance moving advice, or any advice on living in Oregon or Washington. Are they not nearly as nice to live in as they seem (we haven't seen either in person yet)? What are the best suburbs to live in? We're not... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1134781 Heya, my wife and I moved from Canada to Texas last year. In our case it lead to us tripling our annual income, allowed us to buy a house, and got us away from shit tier winters.
Stuff to look at, in order: >why do you want to move? More money? Better work-life balance? Have you been there before so you know you'll actually like it? Is there another place closer by that would give you similar benefits?

>>1134781 >>1134793 Having a good plan will really make everything work itself out, so don't worry too much about the actual move. I actually had a job offer in Bellingham Washington but running the numbers, Texas won out handily.
>>1134781 I live in washington, albeit not on the coast.
I take most of my vacations going to either Portland or down the Oregon coast somewhere. Its all super beautiful, and if you love clam chowder and other seafood thats fresh, even better.
Really the western sides of both the states are basically the same, rainy, trees, beaches, Mountains, liberals, hipsters, etc. So where you want to move will not be as dificult as where you can get a job doing what ever it is you do.
The eastern sides while great... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What is Kos like? I'm looking at visiting. I've done a lot of the Greek Islands, namely Crete (fantastic, endless things to do/see), Skiathos (small but picturesque), Corfu (stunning), Santorini (quirky and has it's unique charm) and Rhodes (full of history but very tourist pandering).
What's Kos like? Given it's proximity and it's history, is there a huge Turkish influence there like in Rhodes?
And if there's any /pol/weenies here wanting to post "hurr Mudslime rapefugees durr", you can get the fuck out.
>>1134663 Lots of stray dogs, some mountains you can hike up or drive up on a moped. It's not that big you can see it in like 3-4 days. It's not top tier but has some nice places, like the dried salt lake with the shitload of birds.
It's SUPPOSED to have a lot of refugees there, but I haven't been recently.
I am going to travel down to Albania for a week or two. Will probably visit the capital Tirana and look around the beaches. Any other cities worth checking out that are near Tirana? What are some must see things in Albania? How is the safety, are they like Romanians that steal everything? And where can you get cheap weed in Albania, I heard they have lots of tobacco and marijuana plantages.
Hello /trv/, I booked a 2 day trip to Toronto which is in 4 days. First time visiting Canada and I Literally have nothing planned for it and I'm nervous because I have no idea on what to do there. Any suggestions would be great, just not into bars. Want to make the most of the these two days.
>>1134020 I think there are other threads still floating around with what to do.

I've never been to St. Petersburg, but I can tell you that you don't have to bump a thread on /trv/ three minutes after you start it, and certainly not one more time not even an hour after that again. It's a slow board. In the last thread in the catalogue, the last reply was three days ago. Just be patient and people will answer you, if not, bump it in a few days.
Has anyone here been to Namibia? If so, what could you tell me about traveling there? Renting my own car isn't an option, but I was considering taking a guided tour on the Desert Express or something similar, or barring that, I've heard that you can see Namibia via hitchhiking. Is the former rewarding, and is the latter really viable?
I don't want to get into too many specifics, but the car issue isn't a matter of me not knowing where to rent/not having the money/whatever, it's a matter of me not being able to drive due to a disability (I'm fine in most regards, and have traveled independently multiple times before, but driving is the one major thing I continue to struggle with).
>Also, if you don't have your own car, how are you supposed to get around Etosha??
