Heading to Brazil for a week in the beginning of March. Already plan on visiting São Paulo and Rio....Just wondering what other locations would be worth visiting on that side of the country?

If you like old, extremely beautiful made architecture, you can visit "ouro preto", state of "Minas Gerais".

However i don't recall if that's in the way between Rio de janeiro and São Paulo.

Check your map. However, if you're going to stay just a week, i recommend 3-4 days in Rio and 3 days in São Paulo. Take a coffee, hire a hooker if you're single, enjoy the view;

Minas Gerais, specially Ouro Preto is too far from Rio/São Paulo. If you like beaches you can go to Angra dos Reis, Paraty, Ubatuba, those are nice beaches between Rio and São Paulo.

Or if you like trails you can go to Morro Saboó in São Roque, it's 70km from São Paulo.

But my advice is, enjoy both cities as much as you can since you only have one week.

I'm bored of everything in Switzerland especially the weather so I'm going to drop everything and leave with a bit more than 20k$.

Leaving by train in May, going to Greece, then north in the Balkans, crossing Russia in summer and meet some family in China, then I don't know where to go. I should have like 10k left.

I need some ideas of comfy places that are cheap, I have some ideas but can't find infos on how to find beaches that aren't expensive resorts for rich tourists when I reach south asia.

How do I find places let's say...

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,...

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.

If you're interested in animals, there are a number of cattle and sheep stations in South Australia, New...

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.

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.

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,...

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.

So there are plenty of sites for finding air travel options and prices. You see them advertised everywhere all the time.

But are there any similar sites for finding bus and train routes and fares? Us poor people and those of us on the no fly list or with flying phobia need our options too.

>>1071015

In my (admittedly limited) experience with trains you don't generally have an option for carrier, so these kinds of sites are not necessary

The price is usually the same no matter the time of day you go, sometimes there is a first class or whatever, but usually it's a flat cost

You just go to the website of the train line you need and book the fare, what exactly are you trying to compare with?
>>
>>1071015

Busbud. Megabus is not included but it will show you cheaper fares than the official websites.

Thanks. But why is Megabus literally half the price of the other buses?

Depends on budget and what you hope to do.

Help us help you. Elaborate.

My personal recommendation is no more and no less than five days. Long enough to see what it has to offer but not too long because it gets surprisingly boring very quickly. And expensive as all fuck.

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.
>>
>>1070985
See the fountains once during the day and once at night (make the night display the last thing you see before going home). See a show. Go for one really nice meal.

Go up the Stratosphere, preferably at night but it does cost considerably more.

Explore one or two hotels during the day that appeal to you.

Hey guys,

Flying into Bangkok Feb 2, leaving March 17. (from US)

My return flight is outside of the 30 day visa free window.

I am planning on checking out Cambodia, and possibly Laos (and re-setting my visa time) but I want to just buy a bus/rail ticket in country whenever I get bored with Thailand.

I can vaguely remember a thread on this board in which someone posted a pdf/info graphic on how to create a "ticket" which satisfies the Thai proof of forward travel requirement.

Any of you real travelers™ know what I'm talking...

Just edit an existing boarding pass that you have. Use a real flight number and time.

If you are from a rich white country the odds of Thai immigration asking for proof of onward travel are close to zero though.

Or just edit the HTML in firefox and print it.

Most likely, it wouldn't be a problem anyway.

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...

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...

So my apartment lease is up in april, and I'd like to move to New York, but I'd really like to move to Tokyo.

Only problems (dumb excuses?) I don't speak Japanese very fluently, though I have some comprehension of it and can learn quickly if I'm there.

I'm a designer, and could easily get a six figure job in New York, but it'd be more exciting to go to another country, and I think it could be fun to work at a bar.

I also have a cat and need to bring him with me. I know it's possible but not sure how or how long it takes....

You can't just move to Japan and work in a bar. They don't want you unless you ply a proper skill, start a business or marry a local.

Everyone thinks that.

>I also have a cat and need to bring him with me.
Holy fuck, this special snowflake stuff is a red flag. Japan will grind you down into a fine powder.

Don't move to Japan. You wouldn't make it out here with that mindset.

Either you make 6 figures in New York or barely make 2,400,000 yen a year (20K-24K USD). Which is the average salary for someone living in Tokyo.

Just work your 6 fig job in New York and come out to Tokyo for vacation till you get your fill.
