I am looking to go to USA for a 5-6 week holiday around March/April. I have always wanted to go to New Orleans because from what I've been told it used to be an awesome place to go drinking and party. I've been told that you could hire a marching band to follow you around as you drank down Bourbon street.
The only problem is it's out of the way from most of the other places I want to go.
I just want to know if it's still a worthwhile destination if you want to experience the nightlife, or whether it is still recovering from Katrina. Google... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1066431 New Orleans has some interesting history, but I would only spend 3-4 days there at most. If you can rent a car and go upriver some, there are cool historic plantations you can tour. Otherwise, spend a night on Bourbon St, tour St Louis Cemetery #1, take a river boat ride, hear some excellent music both on the street and in the bars, and eat all the good food. People are pleasant for the most part, and extremely proud of their dirty little city.
It's absolutely worth it to go. Katrina irreversibly changed the city and some parts are still recovering, but I love New Orleans.
Go to the WWII museum if that interests you at all. You can spend an entire day in there easily if you're into history. At night, Bourbon street is fun to do for exactly one day. Any more than that and you've seen it all. I'd recommend a night or two out on Frenchman street as well. Probably 3-ish days and nights and you've spent plenty in New Orleans.
Where else are you planning to go in the US? I'm pretty... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ok /trv/ help me out. Here's the story first. A couple years ago I met a German girl who was visiting some friends here in America. She speaks very good english and we stayed in touch. She came back again this summer. She's invited me to visit her in Germany a couple of times and I accepted, so I'll be going this summer. I'll be staying at her apartment so no cost there. She's even offered to book the flight in Germany to save money. I don't know why it would be cheaper than me booking it here in the states but sure. She has planned things to do... Comment too long.

>>1064922 Personally always thought Sweden to be rather boring if you're not into nature vacation, e.g. camping etc. Czech Republic is very cheap compares to the others and has one or two more things to offer than just Prague. Austria and Switzerland are extremely beautiful with the backdrop of the Alps. Between the two I'd suggest Austria as it's cheaper (Switzerland is eytremely expensive), you don't have to exchange money (both Germany and Austria have Euro), and cities such as Salzburg and Vienna...

Hi /trv/ I live in Antwerp (although I'm not from here, or from Europe) and I have from monday night to sunday free. I'm desperate for a little of peace of mind and to get away from a few things for a while, but i'm drawing a blank as to where to go in that time. Can you give me suggestions of calm, relaxed places to visit? I can spend 200eur in transport, I'd rather pick a train or a bus than a plane. The places doesn't need to be desolate, but no metropolis like Paris, Amsterdan or London. It can be more than one place, like a few small towns... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1067514 Just get a B&B with proximity to the ocean (or a lake). Walk on the beach or along the shore dawn and sunset. You'll be rejuvenated in no time. Our brains really need to look at water, part of some survival instinct to stay hydrated, rofl, or something. Park a camping folding chair right there and open a book, immerse, ignore your technology for the weekend.
What do the locals do in Amsterdam? I'm going to be there for a week, and it will be my second time visiting there. I just want to do a bunch of non-touristy stuff. Any good recommendations on brothels that are not in the RLD?
What are some good places to shoot some guns? At first i was thinking 'murica cause you guys apparently shoot each other all day. But when i look up places like http://www.battlefieldvegas.com/ that shit is all expensive as fuck. As long as its reasonably safe and i can just shoot some shit without any license etc. im fine. Any good reviews? Doesnt really matter where in the world.
Hi /trv/, I'm going to be moving to Hamburg Germany soon, and staying for 4 years to complete my BA.
I need tips and advice on how to go about getting a job, any medical advice (especially related to adult ADD/ADHD and how that's handled there, since the info regarding that is surprisingly sparse) along with anything else that might be important (like: areas to avoid)
>>1067365 I have no uni, just a high school degree.
I've chosen Hamburg for many reasons, one being the Liberal Arts degree that's entirely in English (as well as the cost of the tuition. Very cheap compared to here), and two, due to wanting to leave my country, home, and gain a new perspective.
Basically I'm not in a good situation here and I need to leave.
I am open to suggestions though, if there are other uni's in Germany that have English classes. I do know some German, but not... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Finally managed to save up enough money for a small vacation. I have narrowed it down to Mexico or Costa Rica. Any recommendations? It looks like I will have to go alone since my friends are either in school or have no money. How can I travel to these places alone, be safe and still enjoy myself?
>>1067356 The "fun" of costa rica costs a little bit of money, because of the hiking, moving around between sites, national parks. I'd absolutely snorkel, cloud walk, river raft, and other stuff there. The food is deliciously more caribbean, than say mexican (think s.american quality steaks, and rice with delicious Lizano steak sauce) vs salsa and more low end chopped up meat of mexico.
The only thing going for mexico would be prix fixe, where you're going to get the most competitive airfare, resort... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My girlfriend wants to go on a shitton of vacations this year and I figured the best way to save money is by earning frequent flyer miles.
She wants to go to Portland where her family lives, and the closest airport for us is BWI in Baltimore, so this trip is going clear across the country (what I equate to as being most expensive.) She also wants to go to Disney World in Florida at some point in the year too, and I know plane tickets aren't exactly cheap for there too.
So I'm wondering how worth it would it be to get a credit card that offers miles for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1066896 That's not how miles work. They're for frequent flyer that do at least 30+ continental flights per year to get some rewards/more comfort. For anyone else it's just to get a cheap upgrade once upon time or buy some gadgets.. If you want to start collecting miles there're only two real options, Miles&More and OneWorld (for the US Delta is also an option)
I use Miles&More as example With the basic credit card you earn 0.5 premium miles per USD spent and the cheapest flights... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
1. Get the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card. It gives 50k AA miles when you spend $3k in the first 3 months. They fly between BWI and PDX though not directly. The annual fee is waived for the first year, cancel the card within 11 months and you'll pay no fees. You won't lose your miles.
2. Get the Chase Southwest Premier card. It gives 50k Southwest points for $2k spend in the first 3 months. You'll pay a $99 annual fee the first month, you can't waive this one. It's worth it for 2 free RT flights. Cancel as soon as your points post if... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1067461 this Another fun tidbit of information worth knowing is that there are only a few actual "flight companies" or whatever you want to call them. Think of it like how Sierra Mist, Gatorade, and Lays are all different brands, but Pepsico is their parent company. It;s the same way with flights.
What I mean by that is some points are transferable to other airlines on your CC's website, i.e. Delta to British Air (I'm not sure if that is a real trade you can do, just for the sake of the example).... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Eurofag here. I was planning with a companion on taking a 3-4 week trip to USA. Mainly a road trip from Washington Seattle to San Diego California.
I've never been to the US before and I'm having doubts if I can afford it, I've saved up about 3k. I know flying can be expensive. I'm guessing if I find cheaper flights to New York it's cheap to fly within the USA?
My questions are:
How easy is it to rent a car?
How much money (on average) does it cost to sleep in a motel per night or it is better to get a tent and stick to camping... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>I'm guessing if I find cheaper flights to New York it's cheap to fly within the USA? not really. we don't really have cheap hop around flights like europe.

>>1064843 >How much money (on average) does it cost to sleep in a motel per night or it is better to get a tent and stick to camping sites? It's expensive these days. But if you look around long enough you can still find deals. You can find places for around $45 that are decent enough, not great but also no blood stains on the floors either.
Camping sites might be a better option but you'd need to bring your tent.

February is pretty iffy; you'll need chains on your tires to go on a lot of the Sierra roads. With that said, Yosemite (the main area only, i.e. the Valley) will be open, but I'm not sure how much you can do there as there will be a lot of snow. I suppose a few of the day-tourist bus-tour "trails" will have been plowed out, but these are generally a 10-minute-long "hike" only.
I'd stick to the coast all the way up to SF (and beyond, it's pretty nice). You might want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
