Hey friends, let me introduce myself a little bit first. I'm a 22 year old Belgian student. I've been to some decent amount of different countries. (A hike with friends in scandinavia was by far the best)

I am now at a point in life where I realise how important it is to start saving money as soon as you can.

A friend of mine is currently staying in vancouver, Canada. I have the chance to go to him. So I only have to pay for the flight and ofcourse the money I spent there. Flight is around 700 and I'll think I will spend another 300 there in the...

Are you talking about Euros, or Dollars? Vancouver on $20 a day isn't going to be very good, especially in February or April. What part of town does your friend live in? If they're a student, they might be busy in April with finals

Vancouver is a ok city, in a setting that's great for the 4-5 months of summer. If you're going to go, pick April. There could easily be 20 days of rain in February, but you're probably used to that.

Unless you're friend is buying you stuff, you...

Hello everyone. I just want to preface this with how fucking glad I am that I remembered that this board exists.

Anyway, I'm a 19 year old college dropout (still living on residence, left school because it just wasn't what I thought it was going to be) and my lease expires in late August. I'll try not to bore you with the details here, but basically I've had a really fucked up life and instead of helping, college just sent me into a brief but brutal relapse. I've quit just about everything at this point, I don't even smoke cigarettes anymore,...

I think about this a lot. I'd skip Russia if I did it. I'd go through Turkey instead, through Georgia and Azerbaijan and take a boat across the Black Sea. The Azerbaijani visa is apparently a motherfucker but on a bike you could probably do the country quickly with an easy transit visa. Once across the Caspian I'd land in Kazakhstan. As an American I can travel through Kazakhistan visa-free. Then I'd see Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan before entering China (which is another pain in the ass visa-wise, I dunno why you're singling out Russia)

2 MB,
What languages have you found most useful when traveling the world? Like which ones have come in handy in the most places? One day I plan to go, particulary to places like Egypt or Kenya, maybe some of Europe or whatever, but I figure it's best if I start learning a language earlier rather than in the few months before I leave. I already know English because I'm from NZ. Thinking about maybe picking up French as I took it as a class like 7 years ago.

Yeah there's no clean answer to this question, OP. I would argue French for two reasons: it's the co-official language of 29 countries, and it's widely understood in many more (the only meaningful conversation I had with any locals in Vietnam was in French, not English).
Second reason is that it gives you a toehold onto Romance languages in general, and Spanish of course is the other most widely spoken language. Speaking French you won't necessarily be able to have a convo with a Spanish speaker, but you'll be able to understand road signs, menus,...

I got stuck with someone whose interests were limited to drinking and room service; literally the same shit you can do at home in any hotel. You can avoid this by discussing plans prior.

Wel the reason I wanted to visit the coast is because I have an uncle that went there once and only said amazing things about it. Second reason is thet the trip is actually 2 trips: One to spend 6 days on Italy, on the coast of the Adriatic sea, and the 8 days on the balkans. I tough that having the Blakan destination on the coast would make it faster and easier to get too.

What is Sofia like? With the 4 day per location limit I cant visit the whole of Bulgaria, but im sure I can see the capital fine.

Hey guys, I got some questions about moving to the States, mainly about which cities would be best to move to. Looking to avoid the more common places to go like new york and LA.

I am in the language teaching industry and looking to get into a managers position, so the city has to be large enough or diverse enough to have quite a lot of language schools.

But at the same time I want to be in a short drive of good skiing mountains, less that an hour and a half would be ideal.

So any advice on that would be great, but i have some questions about a few cities...

Protip: Don't ever just flag a taxi and get in. You look stupid that way, and will be treated like all the other stupid idiots that driver once drove. Use other transport to/from trains and airports, there should be kiosks where you pay first, and then a queue of taxi drivers receive a voucher from you and can't size you up or choose you as the passenger.

It's a regulated industry in the US. Union-negotiated fares are marked on stickers on windows, drivers are reported by 800 number, and you can reverse a credit card charge. On top of that, there will be competitively stated rates for all services to/from airports, and to/from ports, such as in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, New York, and transits such as that. It's posted and companies can't veer from...
