>>1071880 Honestly the only bad thing about Australia is Australians. Incredible nature, breathtaking scenery, incredible beaches and big beautiful clear skies. What will amaze and astound you, they consider pests. If you like wildlife prepare to have your mind blown.
The people however are unfathomably stupid, violently aggressive, boneheadedly arrogant, and thick as all get out. You'll have an incredibly difficult time to find anyone who can speak or reason beyond a third grade level. Add some ridiculous slang... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1071983 Melbourne guy here. You basically summed up what I hate about my own country, which amuses me because I can list the same sort of obnoxious shit about other countries. Melbourne is a lot better than any of the other major cities for this reason, a lot less bogans if you stay away from the shitty suburbs.
I'm looking at maybe becoming a language assistant in Spain with the British Council at some point in the next few years, one of those jobs where you get like 800 euros or so for 12 hours a week work.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it fairly easy to get onto? I'm self taught and don't have any Spanish qualifications, will this hold me back? I'm okay at the language, will be a year or two before I apply anyway so I have time to improve.
It looks like a lot of fun and I've got some money saved up so if anyone has... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Have a week off in October lads and I wouldn't mind getting away for a bit. Is there any point in even trying to visit more than one or two cities? Any highly concentrated areas in Europe where there is plenty to see in such a short time? I'm thinking maybe Netherlands or Germany
>>1073895 If you stay in The Netherlands or Belgium, you can easily go to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Brugge, Ghent, Antwerp or Brussels. They're all well-connected by public transport and the distances are quite short. So take your pick. You could even do a city a day, but then you'd definitely miss a lot.
An alternative would be seeing Vienna and Bratislava or maybe Vienna and Budapest.
Ljubljana and Zagreb is also an option.
Munich and Salzberg can be done as well.
That's all... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073923 Sounds good. I'm not really tempted by Belgium 2bh, leaning more towards Central Europe. What's the party scene like in Vienna? I like the sound of Bratislava and Budapest but I don't know much about Vienna. I do know it's a beautiful city though so it will certainly be on the shortlist. Would Prague-Vienna-Bratislava sound like a viable trip? Or Vienna-Bratislava-Budapest? I also like the sound of Krakow.
>>1073939 I wouldn't discard Belgium. Brugge, Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp are very nice and Belgium quite simply has the best beer in the world.
I've only been to Vienna by day, so I don't know the party scene. I was staying in Bratislava and from there Vienna is just an hou by train. So we took a day trip. Bratislava does have a nice party scene, and Budapest an even better one. Cheap as well.
I spent some time in Krakow last summer. Great place!
Alright /trv/ lads. Planning going on a lads vacation to Burgas in may 2016. Could anyone here please describe how the weather, nightlife etc is there usually around that time ?! Anymore things we need to consider before booking the tickets. Any help or advice is appreciated.
Bulgarian here, not much experience with our sea side cuz' I consider it grossly overpriced and tourist-ridden. This is how I'd put things. >Partying and beaches at: Burgas, Slanchev Bryag (Sunny Beach) and Pomorie. These are meme party locations though, shit music (chalga), easy girls and what have you. You can clearly bonk off to the city to find a club with alternative music, but the beachfront is shit. >Laid back at Sveti Vlas >Sight-seeing in Nesebar and Sozopol Good... Comment too long.

Recently CS has made many changes that I think are for the worse. For starters is the recent update to the reference system, which took away the old system of Positive, Neutral and Negative. Under the old system References were clear, straightforward, organized into what I consider an almost universally understandable language, i.e. Green means go, good, positive and everything is alright, Grey means neutral, Red means STOP, Attention, warning, caution and negative. I think we can all agree that pretty much anyone could understand that. So why remove that? Not only was it intuitive,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073941 Well if you use CS it's a pretty big deal. The changes they made basically made it, so no one can leave negative feedback anymore, so basically now the only way you can tell if someone had a bad experience is to read every single reference they have.
Gf and I won a cruise. Cruise goes from barcelona, cartegena, gibraltr, genoa, florence, rome. Get 1 day in each. We have to pay for "excursions", we are not sure what to do in each city or if we should just go it alone and not be part of a tour group. We don't have any experience with cruises. Its this july, the height of EU tourist season I assume... Are the excursions worth it? Any other cruise tips?
I've found it possible to book "excursions" based on what I want to see and do, rather than on what the ship thinks many people will want to see and do, online a few weeks ut, rather than go through the ship's purser, notably cheaper. Sometimes I have discovered it is the same tour, they pick up the group on the ship that paid too much, then pick me up a block or two away.
And, of course, doing your research and just doing your own thing in port is fine.
The sole real advantage of booking through the ship is that they guarantee to get you back... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073668 Well yeah you'll see a lot of blacks/arabs and the city has a reputation for crimes but it's like pretty much everywhere just don't go in the bad parts and be smart. Do you speak French ? As for the things to see in Marseille, the port, the old town, the cathedral and the basilica, eating the famous "bouillabaisse" (sort of fish soup), and other stuff but I've been there once only Then you have the whole Provence region around which you should 100% check out. There's the Calanques... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073506 Maybe throw in Prague and Krakow? I am 26 and my wife and myself just visited Prague and Krakow for a week, it was the perfect amount of time for those two cities, we wanted to get to budapest however time constraints would not allow. I am pretty sure I saw a train in the station that went from Krakow>Prague>Budapest. Even if it didnt I am sure it would be simple to organize.
>I should mention neither of us are into the Clubbing/bar scene either, mostly just old shit
to do list if you end up going: go to a spa (széchenyi is the biggest, veli bej is the coziest) get rose-shaped ice cream at basilica lunch at a market hall (any market hall except the main market hall, which would be a full-on tourist trap if it wasn't for the nice architecture. hold utcai market hall maybe?) it's just a social place in general, so even during the day you'll find plenty of nice cafés, tea houses, you name it, places where you don't have to consume alcohol. oh and in july they...

I plan on spending some time enjoying the argentine country side and getting a better grip on spanish in general (which I have a rudimentary understanding of from 4 years in high school) I'm still trying to decide a price point outside of plane tickets and basic daily expenses for food, shelter etc. I'm already getting travel insurance to help make me more eligigble to work on a farm and I'm leaving in july which I think may be a less popular time of year for WWOOF so I can get a better pick of farms. Outside of this I plan to spend a month and was wondering if... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1072288 It's not fake. Pictured is a 1966 50cent piece, which was the first year decimal currency was issued. The 1966 50cent piece is 80% silver, and has an actual silver weight of 1/3 of a troy ounce. At current spot price that makes this particular coin worth 6-7AUD.

Sup /trv/, how does one up and away to the other end of the globe and start over? I'm talking about traveling to the Maldives and get a job in a beach bar, or move to Hong Kong and become an English teacher, that kind of stuff.
Save just enough money for the flight and a couple weeks of food and a roof. You'll figure that shit out when you're there.
Don't be like the Germans with waiting to have kids; Waiting until they're 40 and out of 3 different universities with a "stable job" to finally decide now is the right time, only then to realize your newborn child is now autistic because of your gnarly ass old man sperm.
