I wouldn't expect to get a hostel for less that 10 euro a night, and you would probably want to spend about 20 euro a night
flights are expensive as shit, consider flying to the country with the best exchange rate then busing to your destination
I was super shady when I traveled, but I wouldn't recomend it
the real struggle is booking a return flight, booking one in advance is essencial for saving money, but that means your budget has to be pretty solid
best ways to save money are staying at hostels with cooking facilities, because after a few weeks you'l be sick of picnic food bring your own cereal everywhere, scrambled eggs will keep you going wash your shit in the sink/shower
the czech republic is cool, I liked poland personally; france was really expensive turkey was the cheapest, but their exchange rate is less than stable
My dad is planning on paying for (presumeably) most of my vacation for my 30th birthday. Id like to go somewhere other than vegas (like my brother) to go and just relax, wonder around take in the sites and indulge in my usual sexual degredation. Any suggestions where to go? Not portland or tahoe because ill be going there anyway within the next few weeks. Granted im not sure of the budget im alloted, but i can split the difference. I live in california so something in a neighboring state area would be apreciated
Do you hike? Do you dine out? Do you like museums? What kind of sites would you personally be passionate about when you tell your Dad your biggest desire for a trip? Do you want to see San Francisco? Do you want to rent a car and drive up a coast? Do you want to tour estates? Seattle's underground city? Natural wonders? Redwoods (prolly gonna die soon), but maybe you want to go hear music every night in New Orleans and stuff your face all day. Where in CA do you live? Why don't... Comment too long.

>>1067527 I live pretty close to San Francisco, yes I hike and dine, i'd love to check out museums, but no personal passions, I live by the coast so probably not that or tour estates. I've been to the underground city, I live right by armstrong woods. And maybe something out of state. I'm pretty centralized in Cali (in the north bay) so i'm pretty close to just about everything
Going to mexico in a momth, will be staying in a fairly nice resort. Would it be a stupid idea to try and buy weed in mexico, or will nobody really give a shit since their supreme court is trying to decriminalize it?
I'm considering traveling to Copenhagen in March or April. I've never been to Copenhagen or anywhere else in Denmark for that matter, so any tips would be useful. Best hostel to stay in, restaurants, sights, bars and so on. I have spent some time in norway before, is the price range in Copenhagen as high as in oslo for example?
Check out Tivoli Gardens in the center of the city.
It's one of the oldest amusement parks on Earth and its wood coaster is the oldest in Europe. It's so old in fact that a park employee has to ride each train and manually brake the train at key points in the ride. The park was also one of the inspirations for the design of the original Disneyland.
Spontaneous trip time!!! Alright guys I was just sitting here and suddenly I said fuck it and decided to start planning a spontaneous trip. I need your help for suggestions and planning. First a little background info: I’m a 25 year old American Male based in Italy. Really open-minded, like trying new things, open for anything really, not a picky person, adapts well, loves food, cultures, chatting with people, meeting new people, getting to know new places, exploring the world, learning from people, having fun and relaxing. Here’s my idea so far: I’ve been to Denmark... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
CONTINUED: So I’m a bit confused and clueless on how many days I should spend in each place. I am traveling on a tight budget (Scandinavia is very expensive from what I hear) and I plan to do Couchsurfing the whole time, so I must keep that in mind when choosing which places to go to. I prefer to avoid museums because they eat up a lot of time and cash. I prefer to get out there meet locals really get a feel the place, its people and culture. I’d rather spend my money on food then museums, but if there’s a must do or must see things, then I’ll consider it. So what do... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm from Sweden and I can honest to god not say what people are looking for here, but if you like our culture, go ahead.
I haven't been much in Norway so I can't comment on that, but you will not need much more time than you have planned out for Sweden. I will say that you need to go to museaums, many of them are subsidized by the state and thus aren't that expensive to visit.
Connecting with locals could be hard. As you may already know, swedes and scandinavians in general are notoriously bad at socializing with strangers and hard to reach.
>>1066082 How many days should I stay in Stockholm and Gothenburg? I'm think of allocating 10 days in Sweden, can add a few more if needed. What museum do you recommend or what do you recommend doing in Stockholm? I know Scandinavians can be hard to break, but I'm a really easy going guy and I'm good at making people feel comfortable, so I'm sure I'll manage something. Also I will do Couchsurfing, so I'll try to get in touch with a few locals at least. And like most people around the world, give them a few drinks and they open. When I was in Finland it was the same thing. Hard to get people to open up, but once they did everything was fine.
Going to be visiting family in Poland this summer. I plan on being with family for about a week and then dedicating the rest of my trip to visiting Budapest, Prague and Vienna. I've never visited any European cities besides Krakow so doen't really know what to expect. How many days should I dedicate to spend in each city. How much should I be looking to spend for transport? Any recommendations for good spots to visit?
>>1065966 Been to Prague and Vienna. I'd say around 5 days for each city would be a good amount. I think Budapest is more of a 3 day city but I haven't been yet.
From Poland to Prague take Polskibus. You can get really cheap fares. I took it from Prague to Wroclaw for something like 20zl. From Prague to Vienna and then to Budapest just take trains. They're all fairly cheap.
>good spots to visit Uhh, there's a ton in each city. Just look up on wikivoyage on what... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Budapest needs more than Prague i'd say, went to both of them last year, 5 days in Prague was fine and 7 days in Budapest didn't feel like enough. also visited Vienna for a day and i wish i'd had like 3-4
>>1066003 >Been to Prague and Vienna. I'd say around 5 days for each city would be a good amount. I think Budapest is more of a 3 day city but I haven't been yet
what makes you say that Budapest is a 3 day city if you haven't even been there yet?
OP, I'd say spend 3 days in Vienna, 3 or 4 days in Prague, then the rest of your vacation in Budapest. 3 days is just a really short time for a city so lively, so diverse (not in people but in atmosphere, architecture,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
To be fair, Poland and the Czech Republic are central Europe. Why not see more countries? Russia is the epitome of Eastern Europe, Moscow or Saint Petersburg would definitely be something interesting to see. It's hard to suggest anything because you didn't state a budget or other restrictions or say what you enjoy doing. For example based on how much you like hiking you could extend your stay in Zakopane to three days or reduce it to one if you don't plan on walking up the mountains or just doing the basic tourist trail.

hello. i am sick of my own country and looking to migrate to a far more developed country such as US or Canada. I am thinking of becoming a police officer and living in peace until the day I die.
What are my options? I graduated from law school in my country and have no skills whatsoever. I have no intention of studying again and working as a lawyer. I would settle for a peaceful, average salary job. What should I do?
>>1065411 Well for job prospects, the US is going to be needing police. They're quitting/retiring in droves. All the guys I went to HS with are hitting their 20yr marks and getting the heck out (racial tensions). It's just not the rewarding job it could be.
Where you come from is important as to who is going to take you with open arms with your immigrant idea. The law degree means nothing in either country because there's an abundance of them, so your degree itself isn't a ticket. If you could get... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you don't mind traveling outside the city, about an hour south of Amsterdam in Kaatsheuvel is a place called Efteling, the best amusement park in the Netherlands and one of the best in Europe. The park is independently owned (not part of a chain), but it has a God-tier appreciation to themeing and detail on par with Disney Parks. They have a respectable roller coaster assortment, too.
I don't know too much about Eastern Europe, but I have been to Krakow. I would absolutely go there. It's got a lot of culture. There's a neat castle and town square. It has decent nightlife if you're into that. The famous salt mines are really close too. I liked Krakow much more than Warsaw for what it's worth.
