Hi /trv/ first time poster.

My girlfriend and I are going to NZ in a week, and we need a way to get from Takaka to Dunedin in a day. Is it drivable? Is there a train or bus? Or are we gonna need to fly it?

Can we make this a New Zealand general?

I'm also travelling to NZ and have a pretty rough itinerary:

- Home/Aukland
- Waiheke
- Waitomo (Waitomo Adventures - 7hour epic? worth it? and suggestions?)
- Rotorua (drive by)
- Tongariro Alpine crossing (12-hour walk)
- Wellington (stop over)
- Kaikoura (whales for a day)
- Marlborough (any good vineyards? nice places to stay that don't break the bank?)
- Abel Tasman (3 days trekking)
- Nelson/Home

Please any NZ top...

Hey /trv/

I saw the British guy that commuted from Sheffield to Essex via Berlin because it was cheaper than a direct train.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-35424393

It kind of inspired me into trying out one-day excursions.

I guess this applies mostly to Eurofags because of the distance involved for anyone outside.

Ryanair has £9.99 flights to lots of Euro countries. Was wondering if anyone else has tried something similar?

Basically flying out in the morning to somewhere, and flying back at night, all within a single day seeing...

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.

OP here.

Ended up buying flights from London to Copenhagen.

£9.99 there
£7.02 back

Opted for an over nighter - hotel was £42, but sharing cost with GF.

So total cost £38.01 each.

For comparison I just bought a pizza for £12.

I'm in the same boat OP.

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...

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...

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 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.

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.

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...

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.

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
