I am a student from Austria. A week ago, two girls from Portugal visited our school ans talked about how there is a program which allows you to work in another European countey for a year. It seems really cool and they give you a bit of money for financial support.
I am kind of interested in doing a gap year in France as I know some French. I have no idea what I will major in - maybe Translation or something like that. Should I go on a gap year?

My general advice for foreign data is have an unlocked smart phone and a good mobile data plan. Use your phone to tether/WiFi Hotspot when necessary.

I researched a whole bunch and I ended up closing between eConnect and Global Advanced. Depending on the speeds you want and how much you use though? Any estimates on how much you'd be using?

I'm going on a trip and I want a small, portable, cheap camera for attaching somewhere, like on a car, to record stuff while I travel. Has to auto-focus etc.

My main thing is I am renting a truck and driving through the Atacama desert, including Salar de Atacama (pic related). I want to put the camera there to record my shit while I drive.

I was thinking of a gopro. Is there a better option?

I have the opertunity to go work on a farm in southern Iceland for a few months. Everything about the location and farm seems perfect, I've just never done a work stay program before and wanted to know if anybody who has done something similar can tell me about there experience. I dont want to be in over my head because I thought the work would be easy but can things that sound too good to be true, be real?

Suppose I should note the work is with cows,sheep,horses. Just light farm work and stable cleaning it said.

Shoveling shit is not as easy for those not used to it as it might seem to a farmer who does it all the time.

Still, it won't kill you. And if it does, at least you got to go to Iceland.

I could write up all the best examples of church architecture for you, but won't waste the time unless you are into that.

In the unlikely chance that you do not want to spend your time looking at churches, maybe somebody here knows about just wast you are looking for, if you give them a few hints about your interests.

OK, so I just booked a trip to thailand recently and I'll be going in less than a week, but I initially checked the government site and it said I'd only need yellow fever vaccination from a country that is prone to it but now I'm afraid I've read it incorrectly, can someone help me out?

Do you need vaccinations before you go to thailand?

Chill OP. You don't need yellow fever if you're sticking to Thailand. Go to the hospital for tropical disease when you get to Bangkok, it's just off from Monument square. They're a modern professional hospital and do cheap vaccines (it's recommended to get hep a and b as well as update your tetanus/diphtheria if you haven't already. Japanese encephalitis is something they'll offer too, it's nasty but really rare unless you plan to sit in a rice paddy for 6 months. Only issue is hep a and b take 3 shots spread out over a month. I'm...

No, but if you have the time get all the shots you think you'l ever need in Bangkok. I did at some hospital attached to a snake farm.

p.s. I had my vaccination book stolen since then, including my yellow fever which I had done some time before, but I have pictures of it all. Fucking sucks.

...BTW the reason I went was to get typhoid booster, which is really the important one if you have your Hep shots which you probably already do.

I'm heading over to Vanuatu in a couple of weeks, never seen anyone talk about that place here before, anyone been there? And if so, I'm especially curious about budget and more tribal oriented traveling instead of a more touristic approach to the place. I keep reading about the amazing diving opportunities and similar stuff which I'll never be able to afford.

Can't really help with budget stuff sorry, but from memory it's not too expensive? Internal flights are where most of your money will go

Head to pentecost for the tribal stuff, and make sure you climb that volcano on tanna. There's some decent off-the-beach snorkelling on tanna and ok stuff on that tiny island in Port villa. Probs nothing like the diving though I guess

Hey /trv/.

A friend of mine is staying at Liverpool for a few weeks. I was thinking of going as well for a week or so. My friend told me to not pay for a room and stay with him in the hotel he stays. It is a single room. Will there be issues if i sleepover?

Also, any good things to do/visit around liverpool?

if you hike into the canyon remember its like hiking a mountain in reverse. it will take you twice as long to walk out then it did to walk down so plan accordingly.

Me and a friend want to meet up in Vancouver, or somewhere nearby in BC if its cheaper. They're from the US, taking advantage of the weak Canadian dollar for a trip. I'm from further up in BC, rural shithole.

They want the stay to be at least 2 weeks long, at the minimum, flexible. No set dates yet, just sometime in 2016.
How would you guys recommend finding a place to stay for that long for the two of us without paying out the ass for a decent hotel room? They want to pay for the room, I just think we can find a better deal than that.

Should we look...

Vancouver is in a "housing crisis" right now. The vacancy rate is close to zero so landlords get twenty or more applications for every available unit. Somebody who only wants it for a month will be at the very bottom of the list. Your best bet is checking Airbnb.

Hey, /trv/. I come to you with a request, and thanks in advance.
In a few months (February or March, if I recall), my mother will be taking a midlife crisis bike trip from our home in Denmark to see her family in Latvia, and see some sights along the way (primarily Kaliningrad). She's unsubtly hinted she wants some help as a Christmas present, which is nice because I'm broke, and I'm finding maps and travel guides to compile for the present.
This is where you come in, /trv/. Wikitravel and travelogue sites are nice, but there are some tips you just have...

Just to mention it, she's going to be lugging around a tent and sleeping at camping sites, but I know her (and Latvians) well enough to know that camping sites are only a formality, and she'll probably end up pitching tent in the woods if she can't find any.
If anyone's going to suggest talking her out of it (I'm not sure if you'd consider it dangerous, but it is a bit impulsive), I can say that it would result in casualties. Arguing with a Latvian ends in blood.

And I'll just bump this, since it's relatively important.

Consider a night in Dakar if you're staying long enough. Apart from that be prepared for cold water.

First of all it all depends on what island you going to. Im not sure what moron is saying regarding cold water but most of the hotels have hot water. Theres many things to do.

1 - Volcano Climb (Fogo)
2 - Beatiful beaches - (Sal or Boavista)
3 - Try going to Tarrafal - (Santiago)
4 - Food - Kebra Canela - Small restaurant by the beach - Santiago (Praia)
5 - Clubs (Sao Vicente, Santiago, Sal, Boavista)
