Planning on getting a one way ticket to germany in april. Hoping to be as spontaneous as possible, couchsurfing, being a cheap ass, etc. I'm confused on where I find out customs info. I know I'm good for 90 days in the Schengen region, but I might want to go pretty east. Will re-entry into the Schengen region be difficult? Can I apply for visas while I'm already in europe? Where is this info? I just want to make all preparations to be as flexible as possible. The most important question though is how might I be denied at the border? Do I need a "rail pass"...

Then you should know that it's much cheaper to buy a return ticket than two one way tickets. Trying to be spontaneous is expensive. Have a look for yourself. Search for the cost of a one way ticket from, say, Munich or Paris to wherever it is you will be flying from a few days from now and compare that with the cost of a return ticket.
>>1060008 Can I apply for visas to places outside the Schengen region like Ireland or Ukraine? What if I go to Ireland and want to be able to come back into the region? Is that possible with the "90 day" rule or with a visa?
From my research it looks like one ways are the Way to go. I might only be saving a hundred bucks and would be sacrificing the flexibility.
Is there any good resource to check price changes for a route? What are they usually based off of? I feel like since gas is so low plane tickets... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1059529 possible yes if you have a maestro/visa/mastercard card but not in a single transaction and most likely not not in a single day as there're limitations on daily withdrawals abroad from your card, from your bank and most countries have a daily limit per foreign card.
I just agreed to travel to Peru next summer as part of an international program through my University. I was curious to any thoughts ya'll had, whether you have been to the area or not.
Details: 4 wks working with rural citizens near Cusco After that I plan to stay another two weeks in Cusco and Lima and stay in hostels. Never been outside the U.S. 25 y/o white male Thinking I should visit Machu Piccu. Lost otherwise.
I'm from Lima and there's a lot of stuff to do in Lima, at least. Be sure to visit Barranco, it's beautiful and really has a "hipster" vibe to it. Miraflores and San Isidro are wealthier districts where you'll most likely avoid getting mugged and could easily lose yourself walking around the city without being too scared.
Okay, so, I just turned 20 years old & I've lived in the same small-town in the USA all my life. Of course, I'm in a desperate need of travel. I'm trying to think of the best places in the world to go.
What I think I'm most interested in is Montreal, Tel Aviv, Copenhagen, and Helsinki.
How's my list? Bad? Sucks? where, in your opinion, is better and why?
>>1059505 Why those cities in particular? Usually my bucket list involves some sort of activity. Lately I'm into hiking and enjoy traveling for the outdoors more than the cities so currently I really want to see some national parks and world heritage sites that emphasize nature.
Copenhagen is my favorite city in your list. I haven't been to Tel Aviv though. I will someday but I don't think it's my type of place.
However, while Copenhagen can be a nice start, don't simply project your whole traveler ambition on one single city. For example, why not visiting Denmark in general, take a cruise to Oslo, or another Scandinavian destination? If I were you, I'd do that, start from Copenhagen and go all up north, to Tromso, for example. There are many ideas to be made. Be creative, I mean, if you come from the US, you wouldn't...

Copenhagen is nice. If you can, try to see Helsingör too for Kronborg Slot (also known as Elsinore Castle). If you feel like visiting Sweden then Helsingborg is just 20 minutes away by ferry from Helsingör.
From Kastrup airport you can take the train all the way to Gothenburg, as it makes stops in the bigger cities along the coast.
>>1059424 I would love to. I'm going to be kicking myself for the rest of my life for not knowing that Palmyra even existed. I blame the history teacher of my youth.
If I tried to go now my family would have an intervention to keep me from leaving, and considering that it would be suicide, I can't blame them. I supposed if I got caught I could always say I came to join ISIS then sneak away later, but then I'd risk being caught by the FBI upon my return which could potentially be worse as they won't...

I'm trying to get rid of my mindset for travelling where I try to have the best experience possible, causing me to overthink a lot of things and have a worse experience. Ie: should I go to this hostel? Or maybe this one would be better and I'd meet some cooler people. It's really nice in this town, should I stay another day or move on? But then I won't have enough time to do xxx and so on.
Just realize that rigid planning is boring. Don't be a slave to your vacation. Do whatever the fuck you want. (Don't get arrested, but yeah) Make a general plan and then just wing it. You will figure out some things along the way and alter your plans, and that's great. Plan to change your plans.
>>1059391 Maybe you are living beyond your means, and this is just part of it.
As you travel more and more, this kind of overplanning kind of goes away. You have to realize not to have much in the way of expectations, and that any choices you make is simply giving you tools to make better choices in the coming years. This isn't the last and only time you'll get to leave your country, and you're only entertaining yourself not trying to impress future inlaws or a dying cancer kid making a wish. Relax.

Anyone from Pennsylvania here, or anyone that has spent some time there? I am considering moving to PA, but I don't actually know anyone there that can provide me with information, only what I'm able to toss into Google. A lot of the important information I can find, but you're more than free to throw anything out there that you think might be of importance.
What I'd like to know is nothing fixed however, as I'm mostly curious about the people themselves. Community wise and such. So, I'm looking for purely subjective answers; Do you like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1059365 Bucks County native here who has travelled all around the state. If you love history and wildlife, Pennsylvania is quite the state for that. Our weather in the summer does tend to get quite humid (at least here in SE PA), and our weather depending on where you are in the state can be moderately intense in the winter time. People being nice really varies as to where you are in the state. I've found up in northern Pennsylvania (Wilkes-Barre area) tend to be pretty friendly. Those in the general Lancaster area...

>>1059304 Going to steal this thread as a qtddtot now. Im planning on visiting the baltic states to meet up with some friends who comprise of foreigners and want me to bring some American snacks and candy with me but Idk wtf to bring since most things here can be found elsewhere. What snack items CANT be found over there that would be appreciated?1
I'm getting tattooed in berlin the 26 and 27 of January. Thinking about staying in Berlin for 3-4 weeks. Is this too much? Unfortunately I'm going to be there in January/February so it's going to be pretty cold. Any suggestions? Should I do this or should I travel a bit through Europe?
>>1059138 >Thinking about staying in Berlin for 3-4 weeks. Is this too much? Prolly too much for any european city. So easy to move around, might as well add some different sized towns in Germany or head over to your other interests in europe.
>>1058204 Don't go out at night alone. Don't wear anything expensive. Don't try to adventure on places that you don't know. Be careful with the taxi drivers, they will try to scam you, by using longer routes.
I'm trying to save up enough money so I can go live and teach in a foreign country.
I've been sort of doing jack shit since graduating half a year ago and feel fucking lost in my home town.
I have about a thousand in cash. I was thinking of working really hard for a year while taking TEFL or TESOL classes. Doing odd jobs, working, and tutoring would hopefully let me be saved up after a year, I think.
I was wondering on how realistic this plan would be. I am thinking of moving to Taiwan or South Korea to go teach.
If this fails I was considering... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1057812 ESLfag here, was in Korea before, now in Japan. Biggest piece of advice is to not worry about a TEFL/TESOL/CELTA... Generally speaking you won't need it just to get your foot in the door. A bachelor's degree in any discipline is pretty much all it takes. You DO have to do a 100hr TEFL course to teach in Korean public schools now, but online is good enough--definitely don't waste your time or money on in-class TEFL shit or anything more intensive than a 100hr online class.

>>1061129 if you're going to rent out your apartment, be very careful to screen the renters. I've had multiple bad experiences with renters (including family) that ended up costing me more money in repairs and cleanup costs then I made in rent. Basically you want to make sure that if they damage your place or property that you will have viable recourse against them. Its one thing to have a piece of paper that says they owe you "X" amount of money, but its an entirely different matter to actually GET "X"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1061129 Used it once over a holiday, renting family was super chill, because the grill that was coming to stay with me was there 2 days earlier, and they were going out of town, she just straight up left me the key and told me to come whenever since she wouldn't be around. Left their number if I needed assistance they had someone in the neighborhood who would lend a hand and they'd pay him later. As for renting my own place, never tried it.

>>1061749 >How's becoming a flight attendant if I want to travel? Pick an airline that goes places you wish to go, or start with some commuter stuff. Realize the biggest airlines will have seniority (years of service) as the reason for the most desired flights such as trans-atlantic, and their promotions.
