Hey /trv/, I've always to travel to Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn, but I've not gone beyond the US before. Luckily, I've saved up about 3k for this trip. Anyone been there? Any idea on the costs? Hidden experiences?
so, it looks like i'm going to have the opportunity to take at least a month off this coming summer. i live in nyc, but would like to pick up and move to a foreign city for the month of (let's call it) august, which i realize poses some timing issues. i'd like to to be relatively easy to navigate using english, but i'm also trying to make up my mind early so i have time to try and learn some of the local language. i've thought about eastern europe; maybe budapest, krakow, or something like that. suggestions??
Hunanon here, not overly familiar with budapest tho. Tell me about your interests a bit more, and I could help.
Things I think you would appreciate: -Hungarian cousine is damn fine, but its hard to catch in a big city, fisherman's soup, anything from pork, and Tokaji wine, or something heavier: pálinka. -Hungary is well-known about its thermal water, if you are in Budapest, try out Széchenyi fürdő or Gellért fürdő. -If you would like to meet new people and have a beer, look...

I am an accountant from Canada. The main reason why I picked this career was because my parents wanted me to pick it.
I want to become an ESL teacher teaching overseas in the long run. In the past, I did some tutoring and I loved it. I am asexual, so I am not interested in having kids. I can earn enough to live comfortably in another country.
However, my parents do not want me to become an ESL teacher. They want me continue being an accountant. They said that if I decide to teach English abroad, they will not let me inherit their house. (I am... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1061304 >You live overseas now anyway Things may not work out though. For example, I may not get used to the culture there or I may be sacked and unable to find a new job. If that happens, I am broke.
>>1061300 See a therapist. Something you need to work out or get medication....
If you interrupt the accountant career, yea, you royally screw up and mess up all that you've worked hard to do. Why not put your time into getting a second degree that transitions you into a) more income/portability for this travel abroad idea, and b) appeases parents concerns for your future (because yah, you can't affording the upkeep on a house/taxes with loser prospects) and c) stimulates your mind a bit more than teaching english...

>>1063167 If you want one of these try searching eBay for "sea bags", it's what we called them. They're durable as Fuck. They also tend to have a water proof flap inside and you can fold the top over to attach a lock or the built in carabiner type clip. Only downside in my opinion is the lack of cushion in the straps but with some effort you might be able to attach something more comfortable.
So I'm the classic 18yr old, post hs wanna do something epic with my life story. I'm Brazilian, male and Italian white, if that matters.
I'm here asking for tips on where I should go, it'd most likely be a solo backpacking travel, I have no real time table but 2-4 months would be ideal I think. I'm looking for some place with active night life, I want to drink and party and meet and talk with strangers. I value the experiences and learning the culture more than the nature and beauty of the place, not that doesn't matter, just trying to help you guys help me.
Anyone had a similar experience? How was it? Other than that, any overall advice?
my girlfriend got a job as a flight attendant for lufthansa. she will begin in february and i am wondering about the dicounts we can get. anybody has experience with that? i heard stand by ticket are the cheapest way to fly but there is a high risk of not getting a place.
I've been traveling for the past 2 and a half years and I just don't feel up for it anymore. Does anyone else feel this way? Maybe too much of a good thing? I used to feel excited getting on a bus/train/plane to a new place but now I just feel like I'm wasting time and money. I've been working in Australia the past 5 months and booked my flight back to the states for late January. Has anyone else felt this way but continued to travel after some time back home? I feel like I'm just getting old and tired. Pic is unrelated but it's Ned Kelly's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1062977 Travelling is primarily a hedonistic endeavor, no different to any other. It's shallow and vapid and after the thrill is gone, you are left mostly empty.
I mean I love travel, I really do. I went to Japan and Taiwan this year and planning South America next year. But people who travel as a 'lifestyle' have be the most uninteresting, pretentious sods you can meet. Usually they have a chip on their shoulder about high school, or their hometown or something. People think because they work an entry... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1063002 Lol not op but I'd like to think I'm not uninteresting.
OP, the first time it hit me, I booked a ticket home. I realized I wasn't homesick - I just needed to be in one place for long enough.
I have a friend who's been traveling for about 10 years and she's close to tapping out because she's tired of doing it alone.
I was lucky enough to have a girlfriend who traveled with me this year (broke up, though)... But this is my 4th year of lifestyle traveling and I see... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi, dont post here often though i lurk a bit, I have the 2nd week of february free, I'm from portugal and would like to travel somewhere, id like to keep it pretty cheap so within europe where there are low cost flights avaliable, also id like to keep away from capital cities, as much as I like culture and museums Id like to go to a place where I can walk about and sightsee and dont want the worry of having to see everything. Any more details just ask. Also dont know if this fits /trv/ or /adv/ please redirect me as you see fit
>>1063031 Well you could just look at ryanair & similar companies routes maybe you'll get some ideas, assuming you live near a low cost hub. My gf and I lived in Marseille until recently and we used to do that when we were looking for qpme short trip destinations, never had regrets. We actually went to Lisbon last year, was pretty good.
>>1063047 Thats what i've been doing, the fare to bremen is pretty cheap so im considering it, just worried abour the cold, never really been anywhere with snow as i dont usually travel during this time so not sure if I own apropriate clothing. Lisbon is pretty nice, currently living there for my degree
After some research bremen seems like a good place considering my goals. Probably going to stay there for like 4 days. Any advice on that? Do I need more/less time. Any other place great in february i'm not considering?
