I've been working as a teacher for international schools in Asia for a couple of years. It's been ok so far, but I won't do it forever. The problem is that I'm an only child and my parents have a farm and basically disapprove of me teaching and especially being abroad. So I agreed to get more into farming (when I was younger, I wanted to have nothing to do with it, which is why I now know basically nothing). Before I really get serious about it, I thought I'd try to combine it with traveling by doing WWOOF.
From what I've understood so far,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1070690 You would get some practical experience and knowledge if you were on a larger farm in Australia or the US. I'm from rural Australia where the farmers have year long crop rotations so it would be beneficial if you stayed an entire year (or maybe two) working on one farm.
WWOOFing rarely last for a year but it might be a good place to start as your host would have contacts on larger farms.

I have been abroad for two months now, so a friend from home said that i must have lots of stories. While there are interesting things i can talk about, i dont have any actual stories. My days consist of me finding food, watching sights, reading the news online, and getting back before dark. How do i make my travels more exciting without having to socialize with other westerners? (im not very social) Dont get me wrong, i am having fun. Pic unrelated. Im in Peru.

Is it because they can't get used to the local culture? People say that the pay is not that good, but surely it is better than working in retail/fast food restaurants in the west? A lot of art majors can't find jobs related to their degrees after graduation. Surely teaching English abroad is better than office work? Don't most ESL schools pay for your accommodation and flight tickets?
A lot of people just do it because it allows them to move to a different country for a while. If you ***actually like teaching*** you can do it for as long as you want.
>People say that the pay is not that good, but surely it is better than working in retail/fast food restaurants in the west? It depends what you like... Some people don't want to leave their friends, family, and familiar places. Some people want to experience something different for a while and then go back. Others want to get out of their country and never return.

>>1066395 >Some people don't want to leave their friends, family, and familiar places. It adds up to visit home on holidays, and most international salaries that aren't executive are for local cost of living, and locals don't really take round the world trips twice a year. If you fly nowhere, you might save a little money, but other than that, you only really get by.
I wouldn't say it isn't a desired job. I am simply saying that it's fine for asocial, single,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Where to go these days? Planning on 2 weeks of vacation in March or April. Where should we go? I was in Kenya once and was very impressed. Which countries are worth seeing, too? Flight (from Europe) and accommodation shouldn't be very expensive.
Stay the fuck away. I was in (North) Africa once and vowed never to go in Sub-saharan Africa without a personal AK. It's not even a joke, there are literally no laws, warlords, aids, civil wars, kidnappings and all forms of torture. Locals get by because they are locals. I don't think even US blacks will fit there. Yeah, there are whites that get by, but most likely from hotel lobby to work area and that's it. Fuck that place.
I went to the town in Sweden where the first ikea was opened up and ate a meal there lol.. Honestly, I try mcdonald's in every country I go to and I consider myself a foodie. It's a good way of getting a taste for what the local everyday culture sort of eats (not true in a countries though)
>>1070984 My best friend and I are going, neither or us drink but we want to see a show or two. Neither of us have been to vegas but don't get much time off work so two days/nights is all we can go but we don't want to waste our time or be rushed.
Hi all, I have always wanted to visit Rome, and in the summer, I will finally get to.
In order to prepare for the visit, I would like to hear from any of you fine people, where one should go or not. I would love to find some more off the beaten track, in order to immerse myself into the true atmosphere and culture of the capitol. The only places I know for sure, that I'm definitely going to visit are the Pantheon, St. Peter's Basilica, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Roman Forum and the Sistine Chapel. Additionally, if any of you know of some fantastic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi anon, I studied in Rome for 5 months 2 years ago and I recommend it, but I didn't have much money and can't really recommend you good restaurants.
However, of the places that you mentioned, I'd add Villa Borghese for a picnic if the weather is nice, Campo de Fiori for dinner and drinks, and the Vittoriano/Altar of the fatherland for a great view of the town for free. Finally, the Spannish Steps may not be a nice sight these days, since there was an incident were some hooligans completely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
