What are some East Coast/West Coast stereotypes?

West is chill. Oregon is fit and outdoorsy. Washington is super hipster. Northern Cali is more chill/less superficial. Southern Cali is faster paced.

East coast is all about time in the bigger cities. Machismo is a bigger deal. Jersey has the bros. Massachusetts and around have the grungy fishermen/blue collar workers.

Is Albania and Bosnia a good place for a summer trip ? I went to Serbia and Slovenia last year and liked them both a lot.

Slovenia is amazing! Bosnia is supposed to be quite good too. But why not combine it with Croatia?

I'd avoid Albania like the fucking plague.

In Istria and Split you'd be right. But I thought it wasn't too bad in Zadar and along the south-western shore.

Hey anons. I have never been out of the United States and this summer I am going to the land down under. Specifically, Melbourne, Victoria.

Any advice on how to do this with a budget in mind?

Any tips on how to travel more cheaply?

Been looking into hostels.. but I have a bit of social anxiety.

Thanks/trv/.

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...

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.

Hi,

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...

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

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...

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!

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,...

I'm not sure /trv/ is a great place to try and enlist a more-or-less personal army for a great crusade to save couch surfing. If for no other reason, there are so few users here.

But to discuss things, what have they replaced the old color code with? Something that will be fine once you get used to it?

Also, what's your stake in this? You seem pretty intense about something that seems a minor matter.

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...

Can /trv/ recommend me some fun stuff to do in Budapest?

I just watched Rick Steves' episode on Budapest and it looks like a beautiful city with amazing buildings, but I was really only interested in two things; the House of Terror museum and statue park.

What else is there to do in Budapest? I'm 24 years old and I will travel there with my girlfriend during July. She is not interested in nightlife stuff such as clubbing or drinking at all.

Maybe we should go somewhere else?

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.
