Here's the deal /trv/,

I'm an aspiring zoologist looking to get a volunteer/internship position for my eventual resume. While I've already sent emails to hundreds of organizations and projects across the globe, I haven't had much luck. Does anyone here know of some good opportunities to **shudder** work abroad? Yes, I know the phrase is cringy beyond measurement, but I need a good resume.

My checklist is simple:

1. The less "white", the better. I ain't no elephant orphanage faggot.

2. Has to involve hands-on work...

My ex and I really enjoyed working with Free The Bears in Phnom Penh. Probably not what you're looking for though (I'm guess it would be too white)

She was a vet student and I'm a med student so we got to do some cool hands-on work (assisting the evaluation, investigation and management of a bear with a fractured hip, minor dental work) but most of it was unskillled labour (sweeping up shit, preparing enrichment activities, preparing meals etc). Really did feel like you were significantly helping...

I'll be staying in Germany for a few days with my bf after attending Wacken Open Air. Where in Germany should we stay considering we've never been before and will only have 2 full days? No car so preferably somewhere close/ easily accessible by train from Hamburg (arriving/ leaving from Hamburg airport).
We're interested in historical sites like castles, ruins, mountains/hiking/ cool nature views, and food. bonus points for non touristy explorable castle ruins/ old military bunkers.

You have to go further down south to see those. Maybe a day trip to saxony (especially Dresden) would be something for your consideration.

Do you think five and a half hours is enough time to leave Sciphol International, see some of Amsterdam, and return for an international, non-Schengen Area flight? I'm flying from Chicago to Amsterdam and then Amsterdam to New Delhi. I'll be arriving at AMS around 7:15am and leaving again at 12:45pm. I've passed through AMS quite a few times but have never had the chance to see the city.

I won't have checked bags and am a US citizen, so visas aren't necessary.

Does this sound workable?

I've been to Schipol / Amsterdam many times and think this is definitely doable. You could probably even stay in the city for 2.5 hours. But you should take a taxi, at least in to the city -- since you're short on time, if your ideal starting point for your city tour isn't close to the train station (and it's unlikely to be, as that area is shit tourist tier level) it's a lot more efficient (time-saving) to take a taxi. IIRC, fare is about 50 or 60 Euro,well worth it if this is an infrequent opportunity for you.
>>
>>1060413

Unfortunately I don't think I'd be willing to pay quite that much for a taxi. Is the train station in a particularly bad or boring area? I'm not at all familiar with the layout of Amsterdam city and only started toying with the idea of leaving the airport today.

I'm not planning on participating in any organized services. I'd be happy just walking around, soaking in some architecture and sights, maybe getting breakfast, and heading back to carry on with my next flight.

Thanks...

I am currently working in China and the government is supporting World Language Week. A few years ago they began teaching World Language (Esperanto) in a few schools. There are children all over the newspapers, radios, and televsion. It's quite odd.

I looked it up on google and found this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5dEhATFcDs

Is Esperanto a good language to travel with if you already know English?
Anyone ever heard of it? I am not sure why Beijing is pushing this on us. (I am in Shanghai)

It's more like a "meme" language because they are running out of ideas. Beinjingese like to teach odd stuff to their kids.

They still play that in Hong Kong. But unlike Esperanto, only a few people actually bother learning it in some obscure universities.

Easiest visa in the scenario you are describing would be as an investor or business owner. That requires you to prove you would have some net positive impact on the economy and not just a kid with a laptop doing oddjobs. However, that can be expensive to demonstrate and document in order to secure said visa.


Have you thought about job hunting for a british/American/ canadian firm that will:
1. sponsor your visa
2. May assist with relocation costs
3, pay for benefits such as insurance

i'm looking for a part-time translator/teacher job, a couple of UK students told me they got such kinds of jobs through classifieds on thebeijinger.com

Hello,
I want to travel europe in the summer, I have about 5 weeks of free time. I'm Russian-Canadian and will be starting my trip in moscow.

I also need to spend atleast 3 weeeks in London for family reasons.

I'm not very outgoing but I like beer, technincal stuff, casual outdoor stuff and bicycles.

I'm shit scared of airplanes so I'd like to stick to buses or preferably trains.

I'm not on high budget so I'd like to use hostels.

Please advise how I can make the most of the trip.
I'll be going in June-July

Well Moscow is preeettyy far away from the rest of the continent so you're probably going to have to take a plane.
Also, since you only really practically have 2 weeks and spend some of that in Moscow, I suggest you just pick one general region where the cities you want to visit aren't too far away from each other and stick to that for the Rest of your trip. E.g. Northern/Central Italy or Southern France or Northern Germany+Holland, orSouthern/Eastern Germany + Czech Republic and Southern Poland.
>>
>>1059356
No, I don't really need more times in Moscow.
I meant 5 weeks from the day I leave moscow.
Thank you for the advice though.

Bars can have induvidual age-limits, some may not accept people under 21, some even as high as 25, depending what clientele they want. But yes the legal minimum is 18.

Also they can and will throw you out if you look too drunk. They are very tough with serving license here, and the rules says they can't serve to someone who is "visibly intoxicated". So don't be surprised if that happens.
