>>1076277 My friend had an agreement with his employer in the UK to work 3 days onsite and 2 days remote. He lived in Poland and then France, Germany, Italy for 4 out of 7 days a week. It was amazing, I visited him at Poland - awesome place and he paid like 10-20 pound for the tickets.
>>1076277 I do 2 day trips all the time. Doing it in one day is usually more stress than fun unless you can get the first flight out departing not later than 7:00 and return with a flight that won't depart before 21:30.
Hostels or a Ibis room for a night are usually around 30€ so it won't add much to the bill and you can enjoy a nice dinner in the evening and get a taste of the nightlife.
>>1076206 I'm about to leave Australia, one of the reasons being how difficult it is to get employment here. There are many other reasons. This country is totally shit and it's government would have been laughed at in the 40s, don't come here. You will regret it.
I'm in Australia with my WHV. It's not the eldorado,at some place find a work must very very hard (all the east coast).
I'm in Perth now I just found a work in a cattle station(free food/accomodation and 100$ per day) for at least 3mounth (or more if I want to). My advice is fligth to Western Australia or Northern Territory (Darwin).
After it's depend on your english (where you from anon ?).

Moving from Chicago to Fort Collins in June and me and the gf aren't renting a moving truck. I drive a small car so we are really downsizing and throwing everything away beforehand, which is okay since all we own is fucking trash. We're planning on renting a small Uhaul trailer for some of the larger things that don't fit into the back of a small hatchback.
As for renting an apartment before hand, you have to call and ask around if they'll accept applications from someone so far away. Depending on the location... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I have up to 12 days and $6000 to spend in a foreign country. I am 18/m from US and will be spending a month in Kazakhstan. After that I can fly anywhere I want and really enjoy myself (though distance should be noted considering I have limited time). So I'm not interested in prostitutes (I feel inclined to note this considering so many on this board are) though I'm up for anything else. All I want to do is have a ton of fun and money really isn't a problem. I'm up for outdoors activities or eating or partying (though I don't look rich and I'm... Comment too long.

Well I was travelling through India for 4 months. I understand you about that: me and my bro wasn't weren't interested in hookers as well. We mostly wanted to experience culture and learn about it.
In touristic cities described in guidebooks you will always find some guesthouses full of backpackers. They are mostly opened people willing to talk, to exchange views, listen to stories from former travels. I loved that! Locals love white people. In the beginning it was nice (everybody wants to have photo with you) but later I realized... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1076129 Yeah I always thought that Canada seems a little boring and not worth it considering the cost but now it's looking a lot more attractive. If the rates get any better I'll just say fuck off to Israel and go skiing in Alberta.
For all the Mexicans who complain about the cost of coming to the US, have you ever considered Russia? >1 Mexican Peso equals 4.18 Russian Ruble
I (m,23) want to travel to sweden with a group of boyscouts. ages will be like 14-whatever. I once have been to tiveden for 2 weeks and enjoyed the countryside very much. As we are going to hike, I'd like to ask you some questions:
what are desireble places to visit? we start in germany, will travel then to sweden either by train or train+ferry. we are looking for beautiful landscapes, loads of forest and some civilisation to buy food ;)
is camping in regular forests legal / will it get us into problems? we most likely will have campfires... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
for camping/fire google allemansrätten (doesnt apply to national parks though).
campfires are not generally forbidden, it depends on the forest-fire-danger.
camping for groups on private land requires permition of the owner, if you are alone you can camp everywhere as long as its not in sight of a house.
As for destinations there are just so many to choose from, depends on whether you want to hike completely through the wilderness or on an established trail http://www.visitsweden.com/sweden/Things-to-do/Adventure--Sports/Hiking/

Well trains aren't cheap in Germany. Flights are cheap if you choose the right airline and book at the right time. Taking the expensive fast trains of course is expensive. A cheaper way of traveling is using buses. I just checked and I can get from Hamburg to Paris for example (3x the distance) for 80 Euro for 2 people (by plane)
>>1076022 You definitely did something wrong, stupid burgerclap. I've done that exact route several times when my then-gf was doing an internship in Brussels (hurr durr cuckjokes go here). It always took 3.5 hours, and though I don't recall exact prices now several years later, I know never paid more than 80-90€ or so one way, and that's for peak hours. I can clearly recall paying in the 40-60€ range a few times.
You booked at the last minute, and chose a shitty connection.
>>1076032 I literally go to bahn.de, query tickets a month out, and go for the cheapest thing they have, which is usually 1.5x longer than the more expensive routes. Let me know if there's a better way to do it.
I did the same to go from Wiesbaden to Strasbourg (210 km) and back. It cost me 50 euros, and would have cost me 30 more but I got a "discount" by opting to depart at something like 5 in the goddamn morning.
>>1075777 If you're willing to stay in a hostel dormitory, accommodations in both countries can be had starting at around $5, although most are a bit more than that. Private rooms start around $15 but will likely be grim. Basic but decent 2-3 star places can be had for as low as $25 or so. Street food is in my experience slightly cheaper in Thailand than in Cambodia unless you speak Khmer and can access the local places (and even then you're going to be charged more than a local would be). Sticking to street stalls... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1075867 Pretty much this. I mean, there is some variation - in bkk and some smaller cambodian villages you can get a private room for $5 but good luck finding a dorm under $20 on koh phi phi, generallly though this guy's prices are on the ball.
Hey, first time here, figured someone here might have some experience with this. I was thinking about studying abroad some point in my college career, good idea or not?
I was thinking of England since I have a friend who lived there who said he liked it, and they speak English, also I've lived in Ireland a few years of my life so I know a bit about Weatern European functions. Good idea or bad?
Any advice, tips, comments, anything at ALL would be really appreciated!!
Always a good idea, and probbably an amazing experience regardless also nice to have on your CV. concidering you have enough money that is.
i have been studying abroad for about a year now, from Norway to New Zealand. its been an amazing experience and it feels really nice to be in a new place with little or no ties to Norway for me. mostly because of the +12 hours difference.
Not sure what the prosess is where you are from but check the requirements ASAP. i had to begin preperation 1 year in advance.
I studied in Thailand, 1 semester abroad covered 3 levels of language, or 9 credits and I forget if it was another 6 or 9 credits of sociology and other credits. Don't go to a place that speaks your language, branch out.
>>1075759 conveniently i'm english and gonna be studying abroad in america next year our universities are a bit more self directed learning oriented from what i can tell, you don't normally get homework apart from one or two essays and an exam, and you don't get that many contact hours, you're expected to do most of your studying in your own time.
i'd reccomend brighton, bournemouth, cardiff, edinburgh or manchester, don't go to london its expensive and shit
So I am in a SF going to this techno party tmr and I am just wondering where I could get some pills or molly here. Are there any guys standing outside of clubs dealing with it or this stuff doesnt happen here. Any suggestions in this matter /trv? Cheers!
Where can I find statistics about luggage room pricing and places? What countries it is common in them (most Europe I know)? How much they charge? Is there big companies or just hostels and hotels that charge?
I'm going to be in china for the next few months (leaving in feb) and I want to visit a friend in India while I'm there. I'm on a tightish budget, what is the most effective way of getting to India from China (I'll be in Sichuan province)?
I'm travelling to Ecuador and Peru in February and since my Canadian money is weak I am wondering if instead of exchanging my money into USD I could bring rolls of Canadian quarters instead. Would store owners, bus drivers and taxi drivers accept this instead of American dollar bills?
Why does everybody deem it necessary to take 20 pictures of everything they encounter? And worse yet, why do they always have to pose? I don't get it, and it annoys me. Get your vain ass out of my picture! Am i the only one who feels like this?
I like to take pictures of things, but don't like people in them. First time I realized that it may be odd was when my mom saw some pictures I took during a trip in high school, and she said "Looking at these no one would know you were there". I responded with I would know. But that's what made me realize that people pose in pics mail to show other people they were someplace, not to actually a picture of the place for themselves
I would much rather look at a picture of myself and/or friends/family in front of some shit 5, 10, 20 years down the line than to look at the same picture i could look at on google with no one in it. Its fun to see what you looked like and how you were acting back in the day. Most of my pictures hardly anyone is even going to see other than myself.
Thats not too say you cant take dope pictures without anyone you know or yourself in them. But those are usually odd photos that captured... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
