I'll be doing a visa run in Malaysia soon.

I have plenty of time to idle around, so, what does the place have that recommends itself?
Local food, landscapes, architecture?

Budget: low, but staying in private rooms.

I'll be entering by land from Thailand, and thinking of dropping in to Singapore, so basically the whole rail route from Padang Besar to Singapore. Indian Ocean coast.
I'll be there two weeks minimum, but three weeks is likely and a month is possible.

After a few months, you revert to your normal life, just in a new location. But it's a great way to travel all over and get some money, if you have a year to blow on not advancing your career or education.

When do the majority of tefl jobs start in China and Korea? Is it August/September the start of a new term? Or are they always hiring?

I am going to finnish university in May and should have around £5000 (about $7500 US) saved up by then. After graduation in July I plan on doing a trip through Eastern Europe, the Balkans and then the Middle East. After this I would like to go to China, or possibly Korea, to do TEFL. By the time I finnish my trip around Europe and the Middle East it could well be October. Should I be able to find start dates in November for TEFL?

Hey, /trv/, I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience or at least insights about teaching English in the Middle East? I've done the ESL thing in Korea and Japan, and I'm interested in trying it out there. I have a Bachelor's (of course) and combined 3 years of experience. Do you think it would be possible for me to get a job? At first glance it appears that most of the jobs seem to require a Master's and/or State License. Are there jobs out there for people with just a BA and experience? I have a small suspicion that the surfeit of qualifications...

Which country did you prefer? Japan or Korea?

ESL isn't as big a thing in the Middle East as just straight out teaching. Most of the people in the Gulf States speak English anyway. There is a greater demand for teachers that speak English, rather than teachers to teach English.

>>1049686
Japan for sure, although I liked Korea.

>>1049689
Sure, I can see that. Are you sure most of the NATIVE population can speak English in the Gulf States? In most cases, a majority of the population in the Gulf States are expatriates, but what about the natives? But yeah, do you think it would be possible for me to get a job at like an international school or something, not as an ESL teacher necessarily, with no master's or state cert?

Would you advise for or against bringing a compact laptop when you travel? I see a lot of people at hostels with them, but surely most of what you'd use it for you could just do on a nice smartphone?

How does /trv/ afford exuberant air costs? It's about $1,000 roundtrip to Europe and 1,500 for Asia. Maybe I just have a skewed view of money, being a dirt poor college student. It's frustrating because I have wanderlust bad.

You probably just don't know how to find affordable flight tickets. Return to Europe can be found from around €270,-. Don't know about USA-Asia, but return Europe-Asia starts at around €300,-.

Okay. First, it is very interesting to follow certain websites that post cheap flights and stuff on their website. I don't know any American websites for this but I am sure they exist. This is a British example: http://www.holidaypirates.com/flights. Of course this will not help you directly so a few options:
- Norwegian Air Shuttle. Dirt cheap flights from Boston, New York, Orlando, Miami, and some west coast cities to Europe (mainly Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm and London). Just a quick look shows me a $299,20...

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I figured it's a good place to try.

I was on vacation for a month and MAY have gotten a girl pregnant. She seems adamant that it's mine. Since she is in Europe and I'm in America, can I just ignore this? If it is in fact my child is there such a thing as international child support? If so, would it go by the laws of my country or hers? Does anyone have any experience with anything like this? The baby won't be born until June.

Do you think he/she is yours? If you think he/she is then man up, get a paternity test, then marry her. Which country is she from? I doubt that she can claim child support from across borders. But if you go back to her country then maybe you can be arrested at the border? I'm not sure

Hello /trv/, /fit/ here

I do not consider myself to be a traveller at all.
I go to Cuba twice a year and stay in resorts and have sex with people I meet at the lobby bar.

Anyway long story short, I just turned 30 and look faily godo. I don't want to buy a house, have children and etc... I feel like travelling around the world.

Can I expect to get laid with other tourists as easily as I do in Cuba if I'm travelling to other parts of the world ?

f the places I have been, I'd mark the Galapagos Islands, Iceland and Cambodia as the DO NOT DIE BEFORE GOING THERE spots.

The Galapagos for the scientific significance coupled with the scenery and wildlife, Iceland is the most beautiful place I have ever been, Cambodia, between the Khmer temples and conversations with people who survived the Khmer Rouge genocide just made for a really powerful travel experience.

Slightly next tier -- Rome/Venice/Istanbul if you know and are interested in the history of the places, Yellowstone in the winter and Japan/China...

Indigenous peoples of the Americas crossed it when it was frozen over over 10,000 years ago.
This is a pipe dream.

Assuming your car gets 350 mpg and its a 13000 mile drive you would have to refill your tank at least 37 times. If your car holds 18 gallons per tank and the average price of gas is $2.50, you would spend $1665 on 666 gallons of gas.
But, you would definitely have to have an offroad vehicle that can operate in various harsh conditions as well as a boat to cross the ocean at the strait. Also you will easily be spending large sums of money at once to...

I've visited.

The university is known for partying, although I've never been. The downtown is really interesting - cool ancient colonial houses slowly being gentrified by rich white people whose great-great-grandfathers probably owned the block once.

Outside of the historical area, its dirty and downtrodden. Probably has a high crime rate, although I haven't lived there long enough to notice. Outside of Wilmington are lots of beach towns - nice neighborhoods, but probably expensive.

Feels kind of like the grime of NY with the colonial background of DC.

So I want to visit some city in central or eastern Europe and for now I'm wondering between Prague and Budapest. I'd love to hear some first-hand reviews and I'd be grateful if you can reccomend me some cheap and neat hotels in those towns.

Also any other suggestions for towns in the region with a lot of history that usually stay under the radar are welcomed.

Never been to Budapest, but you can't go wrong with Prague. Fairly cheap and incredibly beautiful.

I'd also consider Krakow in Poland and Vienna in Austria. Ljubljana in Slovenia too. You'll be sure to have an amazing time in any of them. Krakow and Ljubljana are a little smaller than for example Vienna or Prague. Not sure how long your trip will be though.

Been to both, and I greatly prefer Budapest, but they are kind of different types of capital cities. Budapest is all (slightly faded, but only slightly) imperial glory, elegance, high culture and charm. And the baths (especially Szecheny) are a must - at any time of year.

Prague is a bit more overtly "urban" and industrial and maybe a bit too tourist-orientated, although the historic parts have charm too. I suspect it is rather better to visit in summertime though - Charles Bridge and the area around it are at their best of a summer evening. It has better beer...
