Visited Houston, live in Seattle now. (Used to live in New Orleans.)

+ Still no income tax.
- more hipsters than Austin
- no oil money
+ lots of tech money.
+ Summer is way nicer than Houston.
- Winter way worse than Houston.
+ Seattle winter better than in the midwest.
+? Instead of Latinos, Seattle has Asians
-- Hard to make friends in Seattle.
+ No god damn mosquitoes, termites and cockroaches.

Is there a cheap location that's warm and has a lot of beaches where's it's easy to start a life near or in a big city

Is South America "American," or do you mean the USA? If the former, look into the area along Colombia's Caribbean coast, if Cartagena is big enough to qualify as a big city.

I'm going to assume you already know that moving to another country is a bit more complicated than to another state, and that you understand that if you have no employable skillz and/or are poor, it may not be easy...

I have a dream that one day i will be able to travel through the world with one bike. I want to work hard and make the money that it needs so after that leave for 1 year and see all the world. Is anyone out there that have done that before in his life? What were your experience about that? I believe there is no such a thing and an experience like this that a man can have in his life.

Haven't done it but I ride motorcycles and have done a few trips in my country on them.

1. This mode of transport is more expensive than pretty much all except solo car travel.

2. Learn how to make repairs on your bike. You don't have to be a full fledged mechanic but you better know how to do some minor tune ups and repairs.

3. If you don't currently ride, get your license now and even if it takes you 5 years to afford a long trip you'll be an experienced rider when you go....

1. yeah i am thinking about that too but i love to ride so much, hope to have that much money to do not worry about that :)
2. i sure have to learn about this yeah..
3. i ride for like 7 years, that won't be a problem
4. never tried something like that before. the longest ride that i have done was like 500 kh but yeah you are right, i need to start from something shorter
5. which bike do you think is right one? I believe every bike above 600cc is capable for something like that.

thanks for the reply!
>>
>>1068854
Yeah I agree anything above 600cc will be good. People have done it on smaller bikes but I think 600cc+ will be comfortable enough and powerful enough to handle all roads. I'm thinking of getting an f650gs this year for a longer trip myself.

On pages like Urlaubspiraten (german website) there are often rather cheap offers and bargeins being broadcasted:

http://www.urlaubspiraten.de/

I'm considering, if I should give it a try for a spontaneous trip. But i wonder, if there are any risks involved that I don't see or know about.

Are spontanous long distance trips a smart decision at all? I wonder...

Has anyone here booked bargains trough such pages at all so far? Or is it mostly scamstuff?

I am not familiar with that particular site, but there are a number of scams out there.

By scams, I mean they will sell you a legitimate ticket, usually, but if anything at all goes wrong (and with air travel, things sometimes go wrong) the customer service is non-existent and the airline just refers you back to the sit e that sold you the ticket. Do your due-diligence on the site you buy tickets from -- and recall the thing about deals that are too good to be true.

I just booked a trip to Lissabon for three nights.
The price was OK.
First time making experience with urlaubsguru.
Give it a try!

Also you can search for hotel ratings on pages likr TripAdvisor if you are not sure.

No idea about the websites you mentioned.
But spontaneous trips always turned out great for me. They always reminded me what life is about.

I'm in the U.S., currently taking a gap year. I've always, for many years, wanted to visit the arctic north, like Svalbard, or Greenland, whether with some kind of expedition/tour group or alone.

I'm fascinated by remote places and arctic landscapes, and I want to ride around a snowmobile in one of these places.

What's are my best options for doing this? I've never traveled intentionally before, so that doesn't help. But assume money isn't really a critical issue here.

Out of all these places what's the best place to study abroad?

I would really like to hook up with local women 2bh brehs. It's like around $10k for most programs and I'll get grants and shit.

Thoughts?

Help me, /trv/. I need to find a destination to go with my GF this February for a whole month. Not sure were should we go. Any suggestions? The only thing is that we don't want it to be only beaches. Our budget is of around 3k for the whole month.

If you want to go to Europe, that doesn't leave you many options. Eastern Europe might be your best bet. Southern Europe in the less expensive spots, maybe.

Other than that just go to SEA. It's cheap, exotic, touristy, you name it.

Why not check icelandair website on the way over the pond and use them for the layover. Their flights are priced lower than other airlines in order to entice you to visit.

Hongkongfag here. I went to an international school and I am pretty sure all locals here know about the existence of international schools. I get the impression that most Americans don't know what international schools are though. A while ago, I did some part-time work at an American company. My American coworkers said that my English is good and asked me how I learned to talk with an American accent. I told them I went to an international school yet they didn't seem to know what international schools are. I also mentioned international schools on other boards of 4chan...

No they aren't. Even foreigners that live in the USA just go to the regular schools. The only ones who would be aware are those that have lived abroad. IME, International Schools pretty much mean "Western education in a non-Western country" and all typically follow US/Can/UK/Aus curriculum. So no need for an international school here.

>>1067914
There are some around. Google and see.

"International schools" are just really good private schools. Every private and expensive school will give you the same education.

Hi, I'm planningto make a trip (2 or 3 weeks) to South Korea (I'm from Europe).

What's the best period of the year? Besides visiting Seoul what can one do there (DMZ etc.)? Are 2 weeks enough or should I stay for 3 weeks?

How about hotels/money etc? Other suggestions? I am a bit of a lazy person so I plan to visit some places, but nothing too "active"...

Also SK-general thread I guess

I want to teach English/find work in a bar or something in France. Which cities should I consider moving to? I'm currently in Paris, but I'm seriously thinking about moving elsewhere for a variety of reasons. One of which is that there's already too much English being spoken here. Things that are important to me: literature, cinema, walking/hiking, good food, mountainous/hilly geography, maybe close to the sea? Someplace cheaper would be better too. I'm an educated white EU citizen, in case that matters.

Yeah, I'm going to pass on Marseille, thanks. Really didn't care for it when I was visiting. Probably one of the few cities in Europe where I generally felt unsafe walking around at night. Didn't really seem like there was much to do there either, even though it's the second largest city in the country.
