So I am a Brit wishing to live and work in Argentina. At the moment my Spanish is non-existent, but I'm starting to take up a language course.
Anyway, I was wondering what opportunities are there for Brits. I have a Bachelor's degree, and currently work in Banking. I don't have much experience with regards to travelling, but as a country Argentina has always appealed to me.
>>1070785 Argentinians don't like British much -- that whole Falklands thing. Unless you're a real masochist (or an idiot, which you may be judging by your post) Argentina probably isn't the smartest idea.
Hello everybody, I've been thinking for a while now about walking the Route of Santiago de Compostela from my city, Toulouse. I've never done anything that challenging, I'm only 19 y.o, but I am in good physical shape, love walking, and even speak enough Spanish. So I'd like to know if anyone here has already done it, and to ask for any advice concerning...well pretty much everything. Which season would be best, should I book rooms for the nights between my walks or is it possible to camp most of the time, what kind of equipment I'd need... Also... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That said I know there's a lot of different accomodation along the way, camping at a site with showers is about 8-10€ a night, where hostels and bunkbeds are likely to be around 15-20€ per night.
Sleeping in the woods are great from late april throughout summer, you would just need a sleeping bag that can dry quickly, then if it rain a little or there is a heavy dew you just dry it in the sun around noon.
Travelling outdoors in France and Spain is nice from the end of april until late october... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1066436 Thanks for the answer I was thinking about maybe leaving in May, in order to be right between the chills of the end of winter and before the heat of summer. Also spring is beautiful so... I'll look for informations concerning shelter in the Pyrenees, I want to be outside as much as possible but need to know more about the crossing of the Pyrenees (Nights are cold in the mountains and I'm still unexperienced) I'm still undecided concerning bringing a tent or not, it sounds reasonnable in case...

I really wanted to see it on Easter of this year, but was wondering what the cheapest flights were. Google is saying everything is $2,500, but I can't see spending that much just to stay for 2 or 3 days tops to see the celebrations.
Is there a snowball's chance in hell that I'll be able to catch a standby?
>>1073055 Bumping, I figured a lot of you guys would be in Ireland or Northern Ireland to see the Easter Rising centenary. I expect most will fly into Dublin, so going to Belfast might increase my chances of flying standby.
>>1073376 Just keep a regular wallet with not a lot of cash in it so if they take it you won't lose much. I don't know about you guys but when I wear pants and a shirt I don't tuck the shirt into the pants so it actually hangs over the pockets. Makes it a lot more difficult to both see if there's anything in them and put your hand in there.
If you're taking night trains or buses just wear a money belt under your clothes so that if someone tries to jack your shit they won't get to the money.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I went to Heraklion a few years ago and it was nice city. Drink a ton but mostly at cafes and bars. Someone told me while we there that it's a known for its nightlife along the beaches, I guess in Hersonissos and Malia, which are nearby the city. I was there in January though, so it wasn't peak season.
I would. But this thread will probably be deleted. The only stamps I'm missing on my pussy passport are East African and East Indian, for similar reasons. Here is a Muzzy I fucked, but would only do anal to preserve her purity.
I've got 7 days off (sort of outta the blue), and I'm gonna buy a plane ticket and head to Costa Rica in like 72 hours. I'm a little rusty, but I was once an expat and backpacker for a couple of years, and I'm fairly certain that I can wing this in a way that ends up successfully, but I'd love some solid tips.
I've done little research outside of calling a friend who has been there and availing myself of Google for the past 2hrs, but the following seems worthwhile from what I've read:

I'm looking to go on exchange for a semester in America this year, starting in August through to December. Currently living and studying in Melbourne and would do the exchange through the university. What cities would you guys recommend as the best places to live for about 6 months to get the best experience? I'm mostly looking to meet some people and have a good time experiencing the culture, not so fussed about the quality of universities.
There are plenty of decent college towns out there in America's heartland where you'd get a good feel for the culture. It all depends on what you're into hobby-wise, sports-wise, drinking/drug use, etc.
OP is going to travel SEA with a friend for 2 months. We've got pretty much everything covered and ready to go. Any extra advice /trv/ can give before we head out? Anything from food, places to stay, places to see.
Sorry OP, I don't have any advice but have a question for this /SEA/ thread:
Is it possible to have a quiet relaxing, month long trip in Phuket? I'd like to get an airbnb house next to a beach and basically just hangout there for the entire time. Like I just want to hang out on the beach, read, sleep and maybe once in a while head to a market for food. Is phuket a good island for this or should I look elsewhere?
>>1073479 I personally feel Phuket is shit. Is it beautiful? Yes, it some places it is extremely beautiful. However it is overpriced and full of some of the worst people you will meet in the Kingdom. Be ok with the fact that you will be overcharged for being a tourist, hell even if you live there they will try it. Some places go as far as listing Thai numbers for prices that are lower than the Arabic ones. Taxi and transprt are corrupt, police are corrupt (well this is true in the whole country, just worse here) But all of those... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was going to say Rome, i live there. Everything else will be a bit of a letdown after that. Istanbul is not Europe btw. If you go there and are a pretty girl as your picture suggests then expect to get harassed by shitskins wanting "jiggy jiggy" and learing at you and touching you. If you are with a male they will leave you alone. Munich, Vienna, Brugge, are nice, not too touristy but very nice.
I can't imagine you would NOT get your passport back --the two are not the same thing. Two ways to find out for sure -- at a post-office or something near you is a passport office. Call or stop by and ask them. Or contact the e-mail or phone contact info available online.
Starting the Camino de Santiago in early March. The French Way. Does anyone have any tips or anecdotes? Also how much did it cost? I've packed as well as I have for any other trip but feel like I'm missing something.
There's a thread here: >>1066260 with answers to most of your questions. Reading through it would probably help.
But to start off with, make sure you didn't pack too much. You don't need much to walk to Camino. At all. If your backpack is over 40-45 liters, it's probably too big, and if you're carrying more than 10kg, you could cut some stuff out.
It doesn't cost very much. Basically the Camino costs as much as you want it to. Most of the time, you can find... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to be flying to Australia next month, and I need a bag that will be able to fit my huge ass PC case (21x9x19) and I've been struggling to find something on anything on the internet that looks like it'd fit it. If anyone else has been in this situation I'd appreciate a recommendation, I'd really hate to invest in one and then find out it won't fit.
