Me and my gf decided to visit Reykjavík for 4 days in mid-January.

hey /trv

so im going to India in 2017. The plan is to go to mumbai, fly to varanasi, stay in varanasi for +- 3-4 weeks, and visit neighbouring Allahabad. Then go to guwahati for a week or two, then back to varanasi for a few days up to a week and back to mumbai and home.

The purpose is both touristic and (yeah you probably guessed it) spiritual. not sure bout this board but going to india in search of spirituality has to be a meme here.

My search is a bit specific. Im searching to learn more about Aghora tantra. this has been something ive been obsessed...

Is it worth risking taking my Macbook with me to Istanbul, or should I just bring my iPad?

This isn't really a Turkey-specific question, I'd be wary of any hotel where staff are in the room when I'm not.

Should any reputable hotel have like a safe locker or something? It's a Radisson Blu.

>Is it worth risking taking my Macbook with me to Istanbul, or should I just bring my iPad?
Personally, despite occasional horror stories I've read, I think it's less a question of security than of convenience/luggage volume. Do you expect to need your computer? Then bring it. I've traveled with laptops to dozens of countries, including some much poorer and more theft-prone than Turkey, and have never had an incident.
>This isn't really a Turkey-specific question, I'd be wary of any hotel where staff are in the room when I'm not.
Again, this is not an entirely unwarranted fear, and I have read about people getting stuff stolen from hotel rooms, but it's never happened to me, and in business hotels I will often just leave my laptop just sitting out, plugged in, on the desk in the room. I figure most hotel employees would rather keep their jobs, so they're not going to steal.
>Should any reputable hotel have like a safe locker or something? It's a Radisson Blu.
Almost without question. Any international chain/business hotel/four star and up venue will probably have a little safe in the closet; places that don't may let you lock stuff up in a safe deposit box behind the reception (get an itemized receipt). Sometimes I will leave money and my passport in them.

Radisson Blu will certainly have a safe

How much should I expect to spend on a plane ticket from Atlanta to Paris for a trip in 5 months?

Prices are about $1,000 direct, even less if I want to take Turkroach airlines with one layover ($820)

Should I anticipate them going down?

So I'm about to finish up a 2 year teaching gig in Vietnam and plan on using the money I saved to travel.

Teaching was fun at first and I became pretty proficient, but after 2 years I'm done with it.

I'll have enough to travel for around 6-9 months but I'm thinking ahead and don't plan on returning home (UK) to work.

I'm wondering what other alternatives there are to English teaching in regards to working abroad and travelling.

I'll always have ESL to fall back on but I'd rather explore other jobs. Preferably...

What course did you do?

>>1068356
If you are proficient at teaching, design lessons for schools. If you are proficient at teaching, teach incoming teachers. If you are proficient at teaching, do something related to teaching. ESL is what enabled you to reach Vietnam. Do you think you could have shown up[spoiler]I actually out loud as I began to type this[/spoiler]looking for work as a scuba instructing in Ho Chi Minh City? Be realistic, you autist.

If you want to make enough money you'll need to diversify.

Start writing. Blogs on travel or ESL teaching. Help guides for ESL teachers. Lesson plans.

Do freelance translations or write legal documents for foreign companies.

Buy/sell shit you can find locally to places where it's more expensive.

If none of those things work cruise ship jobs are a good way to save up money but the jobs will likely suck and you'll be working 10+ hour shifts 6 or 7 days a week for months. Some people are cool with that but others burn out quickly. As...

You're more than likely to encounter difficulties with China, they are difficult. Do the research, check the general threads at least.

Hi /trv/, I'm going to visit Vienna and Budapest in mid february. I'll stay 4 days in Vienna and 3 in Budapest. How much of a budget would we need? We already booked the planes and hotels for the stay.

Also, what places do you recommend me to see? Thanks!

Bump for interest, I want to go to Budapest in March.

I think, personally, you're going to have to budget harder for Vienna, as it's really a more expensive city than Budapest. Budapest being a central/eastern European city in terms of development, and not costing as much as most western cities.

I've heard of that, we are on a tight budget but we are used to go to an expensive city like Barcelona so I don't think that would be much of a problem.

About Budapest, avoid exchanging your money in the airport, they will try to scam you. There are exchange shops all over the place in the city with much better rates.

Hey /trv/
Last year I got engaged and brought a house and something came over me and i realised I had locked myself into something long term and I hadn't seen the world yet.

And then travelling on from there with no direction. I have been to Thailand...

With some good sense, you could stretch that $20 to two or three years. More if you do some English teaching.

Be aware that using the same bike in all countries is probably not possible. They probably won't let you bring a foreign bike into Vietnam and I think one of the others has a similar issue. I've heard of it being done with a fuckload of trouble and permits.

Hi /trv/, looking for some advice from people who have used this website.

I'm getting itchy travel feet. Ideally I'd want to go somewhere to be immersed in the real culture of the country, so I'd want to be working and living with local residents for a couple of months, however money is fairly limited and I'd be going alone. I'm female too, so obviously I wouldn't go to certain parts of the world but I thought I should mention it because of possible safety concerns even in more modern countries.

I've done something similar once...

I am flying Lufthansa from South Africa to Chicago. From there I am taking American Airlines as domestic from Chicago to Indianapolis. I bought a bottle of wine for my dad and I am wanting to bring it back. The only problem is that I am 20 years old.

How do I pack this bottle of wine? Should I make it carry on or in my luggage? I am not really concerned with Lufthansa, but American Airlines domestic might be another story.Any advice with underage wine traveling?

you cant carry it on bc the liquids are too big.

however if its checked american will charge $25 for you if youre on a purely domestic ticket for the ord-ind portion.

Si, do it but don't book a tour. Tours are just extra money and last a couple hours a day, you could easily just get a cab anywhere in a few minutes, or rent a bike if you're fit enough. Whole place is like 60 square miles, you only need to book a hotel ahead of time and be aware that the internet on the island is agonizingly slow.

There's so many historic sites there, just make a list of 10 and do them over a few days. Or ask the hotel reception if there's a shuttle, even though a taxi will do.

Hola. Soy Uruguayo y quiero viajar a chile con mi novia (solos , sin agencia de viaje). El vuelo es muy barato 125u$s (ida y vuelta en avion c/u) y estadías en hoteles también.

I understand your request but my written Spanish sucks, so I hope you speak english.
Puerto Montt is really awesome, if you don't have the money for a flight take a night bus they're really cheap in chile and top tier quality about 50k CLP for a return trip. (pullman or turbus)
Else Santiago and the surrounding area is pretty cool, Valpo/Vina is awesome (4k CLP for the bus trip) else kinda expensive but worth it.

Santiago es buen destino como centro histórico y para conocer algo de la cultura chilena, pero como atractivo turístico es mejor viña/valparaiso. Por suerte éste destino queda cerca de Santiago, como ya lo dijeron, pero al ser atractivo turístico los precios suben. No puedo dar una opinión concreta respecto a Puerto Mont.

Hey everyone. Since there seems to be alot of interest on this board about living abroad teaching English, I made a thread devoted to it and questions related to it.

I am a English teacher living in Vietnam,I have been living here for 3 years. I am getting married soon and will be living here the rest of my life. I primarily teach children but also tutor college kids on the weekend. I also lived and taught in Japan for one year before moving here. So if anyone has any questions about teaching in Vietnam or Japan let me know and I will do my best to answer your questions.
