The only thing that's made me happy recently is travelling to exciting places and having 'adventures'. Nothing too crazy/dangerous, but just something that distracts me from normal life enough to make me feel like I'm actually living, rather than just getting by. There are just a couple of problems at the moment:
1) I'm trying to work towards a 'real job' right now, so I don't have much time/money. This summer might be my last chance in a while for prolonged travelling, so I want to make the most of it even if I am poor. Does anyone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Also forgot to say - if anyone's interested in posting about their budget adventures in general (i.e. not specific to UK/Europe), I'd be interested in reading about it. I try to learn from anybody who lives the sort of life I want to live.

Me and my ex spent at least 3 months every year for the past 4 years hiking through the Himalays, backpacking through S America or island-hopping in Thailand and now we've split up Ican't for the life of me find someone to replace her. That's the one fucking thing I miss.

>>1061301 If you want to be in times Square for that shit, you'll need to do some major planning. I'd personally suggest looking for a restraunt that has a view of the ball, and getting tickets for their NYE party.
From what I've heard on /trv/, most ESL teachers return after a year or two as the pay is not that good. Based on this article the pay seems pretty good though: http://www.besudesuabroad.com/2014/06/teaching-english-in-hong-kong/
Your cited article is mostly bullshit, a best-case scenario with at least one significant omission. You'll notice that she claims utilities cost nothing (bullshit), spends only US$10/day on food (bullshit, unless you plan on eating the cheapest, unhealthiest crap every day), doesn't drink or go out at all (YMMV), and doesn't pay to commute (YMMV). She also conveniently ignores income tax, which does exist in Hong Kong. If you have a normal lifestyle and don't live like a monk (if you do, might... Comment too long.

Yes, you can, but if you want to make a career of it, you have to approach it with a professional mindset, as you would if you were a teacher at home. The rewards and possibilities in some ways can be greater internationally though.
So what I mean is - yes, first, jump in, get what experience you can get, even if everything about your first postings aren't great. But consider professional advancement - maybe get a proper high-level teaching (and not just TESL/TEFL) qualification in your own country later on - and when you're more experienced be discriminating...

I do not know any German and my parents want me to study in Germany because its cheap (this idea is being pushed by monetary reasons). Does anyone have any sort of advice, experience, or knowledge with this?

I have a dream, /trv/. My dream is to fly to America. Specifically, to eat. I've watched lot of clips on youtube of people in America eating massive meals that you can order in random restaurants throughout the US. There seems to be hundreds of places you can do it, here in Australia, there's hardly any. I've been following Randy Santel on youtube and watched a few Man vs Food episodes, I think it would be sick to do. My problem is that I don't know how I could begin setting something like this up. I think I should also do stuff other than just go and eat... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1060108 Ive always wanted to do a roadtrip and do all the foood challenges. unfortunately im broke unifag.
i would love to help you my friend but i dont think i can. what i can tell you is this
get on couchsurfing.com
lots of good people who like putting up random strangers (done this a few times, its pretty sweet and totally free)

Those big meals are an interesting novelty but you wouldn't want to do more than one a week. Hell, I wouldn't want to do more than one a month. Tbh, the portions in American restaurants are huge already even for me a Canadian.
If you do end up going to the States just pre-plan a few restaurants that serve big portions and visit them along the way. Just don't make this the focus of your trip.
>>1060108 The US is a big country. Decide where you want to fly to, and then research what foods/restaurants you want to try while you are in that city. Many different places have their own regional flares, or specific items they are known for, and deciding what you want to try most can help you.
My friends and I decided to do a Deep-dish pizza tour of Chicago, where we went to the different pizzerias and got a pizza from each place. We planned on going to 4 but we only finished 2 before we got full and had to take massive shits.
So I'm getting conflicting information on the topic of bringing girls back to your hotel room in Vietnam.
I'm not talking about prostitutes, but regular girls. I had a friend tell me it's illegal to have a girl spend the night in your hotel room. Now I'm reading through some forums about the subject, and some are saying it's illegal while others say it's a thing of the past.
Does anyone here know if this is true or not? I couldn't find any concrete evidence.
Allright yanks. Gonna take my first trip to the states next spring w/ my gf. Gonna stay in NYC for a week or so, then spend 1 or 1,5 weeks on the road and fly back to the old continent from Miami. Around 3 weeks long trip.
What do you recommend for the road trip? What should we see? What should we avoid? Best cities? Sports to see (baseball)? etc. etc.
I read that is wise to take a train from NYC to Philadelphia and rent the car there (cheaper and easier traffic). Is this true?

>also extremely into fighter jets You've probably already had this in mind but USS Intrepid and try visiting the many decommissioned/reserve supercarriers in dock along the coast. Can't go on obviously, but just seeing them is amazing.
>>1060739 >Washington D.C. and Kennedy space centre (also extremely into fighter jets, because autism). Well, make sure while in D.C. you do both air and space museums. The original is on the Mall with the other smithsonians, but the newer one is near Dulles airport (and a little trek to get to) and still I hear only 5-10% of the total smithsonian hangar'd plane collection is on display given space limitations.

I'll be leaving to NOLA in a few days and just wanted to inquire about any good spots to hit, hidden gems, or neat hotels. Planning on being there for 6 days and will be with my girlfriend and money is really no issue. Thanks guys!
>>1059172 Ignore >>1059273 Bourbon Street is cool enough, go if you've never been. Sure it's touristy and shit, but whatever, if that's your type of thing, you'll still have fun. But by all means, see more than the French Quarter, because there's so much hit. Hit the World War II museum, City Park, etc. Don't be one of those lame tourists who only comes in NOLA to get drunk. You can get drunk anywhere.
I'm going on vacations to Cancun tomorrow. I have already planned to go to Chichen Itza and Tulum as the highlight of my trip, and I'm staying at the Grand Parnassus hotel. I'll be over there for about 6 days, which isn't that much, but I'd like to make my trip a little bit more exciting... Any tips?
While I have an interest in Mexican items, I'm also interested in shopping for American merchandise while I'm there, since the dollar is so high importing anything to Latin America's become a bitch, and Cancun... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Recently my family decided to go on a trip abroad, and we are currently going over possible destinations.
Since the people going are my aunts (2), my uncle, possibly a cousin or two and my father, I started thinking about going places that are both a little less known but also family friendly; Full of sights and places to see and visit.
After a little research, I decided on northern Europe and Baltic Sea area; More specifically, Latvia, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Denmark, Greenland, Norway and Sweden.
I would like to hear your opinions... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can anyone recommend some plastic surgeons abroad ? I was hoping to get the surgery done locally but $8500 is a bit goddamn much for me. I've also never been out of the country before so this would be killing two birds with one stone for me. I was aiming for something under 3k total. Sorry if this isn't the right board , I was torn between /fit/ and here.
So I'm in the early stages of planning a 4-6 week trip to Scotland, and I'd like practical information that I may overlook in the process.
I'm not big on culture, and my grand plan is to do several of the longer hikes through the country with breaks to distilleries and towns in between. I also don't want to carry a ton of hiking gear so I'll probably do the old man thing and sleep at hostels, bothies, or B&Bs.
So far I have 2 trails that I am definitely doing: 1) West Highland Way (94 miles) 2) Great Glen Way (73 miles) The... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In the West Highlands, maybe visit Oban. It's a much more interesting town (cathedrals, big folly on the hill overlooking the place) than Fort William, where the two trails join. The train journey between Fort William and Oban (there are usually three trains a day, and you have to change at Crianlarich) is often described as one of the most scenic in the world - so try to do that in daylight hours. From Oban you could cross by ferry to the Isle of Mull , and then maybe on to other islands (eg Iona)
I love the route from Loch Lomond to Oban to Fort William (Ben Nevis) to Mallaig to Skye. It's absolutely stunning. And Skye itself has fantastic hikes. There are some great hiking options in Cairngorms National Park too. The shorelines of the Orkney Islands are very dramatic as well.
Just off the west highland way you'll find a distillery called Aberlour in the village of Aberlour, highly recommend this and the mash tun inn is an excellentp lace to stay, a little expensive but worth it. also Dewars world of whisky in Perthshire and springbank distillery in campbeltown are a must see.
