Budget: Australia is expensive. Not as expensive as Norway, but about as expensive as Japan. I wouldn't recommend hitch-hiking (it's not impossible but not very common either). Enjoy the beaches, but either do you research unless you want to only find the crowded tourist-trap beaches or go during the weekdays when they're much less busy (unless it's a particularly hot day, then it will always be busy).
In about two weeks i will be going to papua new guinea for work (geologist, mining exploration). I will probably be there for about 50 days +/-. Will fly into port moresby, then take a small plane into the highlands. Will be living in a field camp which has been built by the client (with showers, cooks, cots, a fuckton of aussies etc).
The study will involve hiking for most od the day every day, and we will have local help to haul equipment (way cheaper than bringing field techs from the usa).

>>1068813 Information I've got from friends who have been there - one of them multiple times.
After a few days hiking, everything will be wet. Everything. Also, don't expect paths or wildlife. Local guides/porters may try to catch and eat any wildlife you do come across. There's rebels - but they might be chill (moreso than the military) depending on your ties. But, given that you're in the mining business, I'd avoid them - the mining industry has only brought them misery. Indigenous population... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I need /trv/'s view on the world, I'm an average American civilian that doesn't know a whole lot about the world but only in history, but I want to know what things outside of the US can be allowed and what customs I have to follow and what major points in history made the country what it is like today, and a thing that the country allows that the US does not allow and which country that doesn't have a problem with Americans and which are the most peaceful to live in. I love the USA but I want to know what the other half of the world is like, so If you can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I have 14 hours to spend in Budapest and almost no money. What are some cool free things to do there? Of course I want to walk around the city and see the architecture, but are there any free museums?
>>1067904 The thermae maiores under the overpass leading up to Árpád bridge in Buda is free to visit, a pretty under the radar sight but well worth the fifteen minutes of travel from downtown Budapest.
Also, there's two open air amphitheatres nearby, one at Aquincum and the other in Nagyszombati utca.
Anyways there are a couple of threads about Eastern Europe and Budapest up on this board right now, look them up and see if there's anything to your liking.

So obviously you would need a student visa to do a memster's abroad. Now say for example I wanted to get into policing in the UK, would I be able to get a work visa? Looked up the requirements for policing, commonwealth citizens are allowed as long as they have have a visa. End goal would be to become a citizen.

On a £6000 budget (roughly $8646) how long could I go backpacking around south-east Asia/India kind of area in hostels and such? I've heard you can live off £5 a day in Vietnam. Everyone in the UK seems to be going either SE Asia or Australia, are they worth the hype? Is it actually better travelling alone and is it easy to meet friends in hostels and such?
I went there with 4kÂ£, sure you can live off 5Â£ a day but you better count on 10/15Â£ average. Even eating local food (1Â£ meal) and camping, something is gonna go wrong so plan it ahead. Get your own motorbike make everything cheaper if that's your concern. But it also make everything more exiting and unique (here was my concern). Alone is ok, I went to cities went I wanted to meet english speakers, but I'm happy to be on my own for days. If you can't handle it, forget about Asia. The all country side is quiet and awesome if you enjoy that.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I live in a small town in the US with no jobs. I have $500 to my name. I have no job experience, have never worked. I want to start traveling. Would it be possible? I figure I have nothing to lose. What are some places with good job prospects?
There is nothing more liberating than having nothing to lose. Of course you could lose your life so your statement isn't completely true. My advice is catch a greyhound bus to your nearest major city whether it's Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta or New York. Stay in a cheap hostel while you search for an apartment. Use the hostel to make connections for jobs or roommates. McDonalds will hire you if all else fails. $500 will buy you maybe 3 weeks. Good luck.
>Have a 12 hour layover in Amsterdam at Schiphol Airport I've never traveled via plane before, but I think 12 hours gives me enough time to leave the airport for a while and do some fun stuff in Amsterdam, r-right?
Can /trv/ offer some suggestions?
I thought that I could maybe fuck a hooker and see Anne Frank's house, but I'd like to do other stuff as well.
Should be plenty of time to do both plus more. Train from Schiphol takes 15 minutes to the centraal station. Budget an hour waiting in line for tickets to Anne Frank if you can't reserve them online. You can fit in the Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum visit where that picture was taken.
>>1069568 Take a bus to Museumplein (which is the open field in your uploaded pic, plein means square) which is the southern most part of the inner city, where there's still stuff to do.
From there you can walk north to the National Museum, Leidsepllein, Rembrandtplein on the east). Further up north are the streets with all the shops (mainly Kalverstraat), eventually Damplein and Damrak and at the end of Damrak is the Central Station. From there, take a train back to Schiphol.

It depends where you're coming from. If it's a long haul flight (from the US or Australia) then forget it; you'll be too tired and once you sleep you won't have enough time.
Don't forget that most airports are outside the main part of the city so factor travel time to and from in to your plans, plus you'll need to plan to get back to the airport at least a couple of hours before your flight leaves, just in case you experience any delays.
Hey, I arrive in Bratislava tomorrow and am wondering where else I should I travel in the country. I'll be in Bratislava for 4-5 days (I like to travel slowly) before heading east. Where would you guys recommend?
I was thinking maybe to choose 2 from Poprad, Kosice, Banska Bystrica or Banska Stiavnica but I'm open to other suggestions.
Where would be good at this time of year? I want somewhere cheap and fairly easy/accessible to travel to and around. Thanks!
While you're still in the Bratislava area I recommend checking out Vienna - it's only about 50km away.
If you like mountains then it doesn't get more comfy than the Poprad area. As far as Tatra Mountains go, they're cheaper and less crowded than the Polish side, though this time of the year I'd expect that snow may distrupt navigation at least partially. Still, if you don't wanna go hiking (which would require preparation), I definitely recommend checking it out if you like aquaparks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Check out the Northern areas around the Polish border with the Tatra mountains if you're into skiing or mild hiking (the serious hikes/climbs are currently closed afaik but it's still pretty nice there).
Don't have much time but will write a more detailed post later
>>1068229 >I've been thinking of having a coast to caost roadtrip in the states No one does that (with any sense). You tour the west coast, or the east coast, or you explore a region like the southwest, or the South, or New England, but you don't enjoy cutting cross-country. Fact.
Hi /trv/ im about to move for a backpacking tour in morocco. Does anyone know nice place to visit and the cost of meal and hostels? I got no high expectation (hotel, expensive meals, etc...) Any help will be appreciate.
>>1067964 >Marrakech is a must. The winding souks with all their sights and smells are incredible. Just be careful not to get lost. >Go into the Atlas Mountains at night if you can. I never did but apparently its one of the best ways to see the stars with 0 light pollution

>>1067968 Thank you for the fast response. Im currently in canary island. I will take the airplane to marrakech and later i will go on the atlas. You actually know maybe how much it cost food and other stuff?
