>>1047636 I wanna go early next year, I'm think of going late January/early February for 3 months. Looking to spend less than $1000 a month. Was going to fly into Chennai and travel north. I'm definitely interested in Kerala/Tamil Nadu and I want to see some northern sites as well, I love hiking/mountains/nature etc.
Just got back from traveling Germany in a rental car, but received a parking ticket (10 euro) along the way. Think it was for not using some kind of window-displayed clock(?) while parked (no signs or notifications about this anywhere, so can't figure out why I got the ticket). However, i also have no idea how to pay it. They gave me a bank account where the money can be transferred, but I obviously don't have a Euro bank account. The rental company is useless because they want to me to have pay their "administrative fee" ($50 to pay the ticket for me) rather... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Seems like a really strange way to do parking. There literally wasn't a single sign anywhere in the town about it. Regardless, how would I pay it? I don't have a bank account in Euros and an international wire transfer would cost many times what the actual fee is.
>>1047190 Tour package was like 950$ or something. it was 4 days 5 nights. Had to get in via Tumen in northeast China, so I booked a flight from USA to Yanji that was about 900$ or so. You can get there cheaper, but I'm on holiday from work so I can't be flexible with the days, therefore flight was the easiest and quickest option. There are a few souvenir shops, but I spent no more than about 60-80$. There is not much to buy. I tried to get a Korean at the art gallery to sell me a propaganda painting, but she said...

ITT: we convince people to travel to metro areas that most would be reluctant to visit.
Family-friendly places: Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village: largest indoor-outdoor museum complex in the USA (emphasis on US industrial history in late 1800s-early 1900s). From there, you can also get tours of the nearby Ford Motor Company River Rouge Plant, where you can see cars being made on an assembly line. Detroit Institute of Arts: one of the top six art collections in the USA. Ford Piquette Avenue Plant: oldest former car factory building... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1047148 Detroit is nicknamed the Motor City. You need a car to get everywhere, just like most places in the USA. There are millions of places where you can easily rent cars, including at Detroit International Airport.
They do have an elevated people mover in downtown, though, and they will be opening a light rail route up the length of Woodward Avenue, the city's main street, in a few years.
>>1046714 >Anyone have experience with the i-to-i online TEFL course? Perhaps commiting to CELTA. will be more favourably looked upon by employer?
Funnily enough I have done both. I Did The i-to-i Online in the UK but wasn't entirely happy with it so did the CELTA in Bangkok with International House.
The i-to-i Certificate isnt worth the paper its written on and It would be better for you to buy a couple of good books, read some free online lesson plan guides and forge the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'll also add that with the i-to-i you do get a one day training thing in person, but it is very basic. I asked the i-to-i trainer about her thoughts on the CELTA and she recommended it to me whole heartedly.
>>1046714 Online TEFL courses are always absolute garbage, and every employer worth their salt knows it. You cannot learn TEFL online, it's impossible, you need class experience and at least some in-person coaching, which is what something like CELTA does. Online courses only exist to take money from the naive and gullible. Some bottom-of-the-barrel employers may accept it in China, but otherwise all that kind of trash will get you nowhere.
Obviously, in desperate places, they'll accept whoever and whatever... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Kiwi here. You will definitely want to check out Kaikoura, which is in the South Island. Amazing little town with so much to do. The biggest city in the South Island is Christchurch and it's a shit hole. Spend as little time there as possible.
What would be the best time to visit in between May and August? I'm thinking of getting married there and spending a week or two there on a honeymoon, and we really want our anniversary to be in late spring or summer.
Not really. I've been to several dozen countries. While there were places I enjoyed significantly more than others, I don't think I have any major regrets or complaints. I was incredibly disappointed by Athens - it was such a filthy and rotten city, and that's coming from somebody who's enjoyed a lot of countries less developed than Greece.
But I wouldn't "take back" that excursion if I could. Likewise, while Iceland was beautiful, I don't view it as being a very memorable place. Again, though, I'm happy I went and still have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I read heaps about the history and fell in love with it. The country, however, felt like it lacked a certain sense of adventure since the gov wants you to stick to the main tourist sites and having to register at your hotel every night. It also surprised me how done up all the cities were for tourists. It was pretty easy mode to travel. Uzbeks are sound though and I like vokda and shashlyk, so I made the most out of it.
Unless you have a raging hard on for Islam architecture, I don't know if the $150 visa is justified.
Greetings /trv/, I have 2.5 months to travel and I'm flying to Kuwait first, then taking a boat to Khorramshahr, travelling around Iran, visiting Herat and surrounding areas in Afghanistan, going back to Iran, then crossing to Pakistan.
Asking advice from people who've been there before about cool things to do or see. I've been to Iran before so I've seen most of the major attractions, but any lesser known points of interest would be good to know about. I know very little about Pakistan so any insider tips there would be appreciated.
>>1046458 Excellent, thanks for the info. How long ago were you in Pakistan? Is it possible to visit the Swat Valley without prior arrangements? Yeah I was already planning on venturing up to Gilgit, I'll put Peshawar on the list as well as that sounds interesting.
And did you visit Herat yourself? I'd like to hear more about that if you did. I speak enough Persian to get around so I'm pretty keen to get outside the city a bit and visit some rural areas, of course I'd ask around concerning the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I saved some info from a thread about Pakistan from september 2013, so this might be outdated. But here goes. But first a question from me: can you make yourself understood in Pakistan with Persian?
Baltistan seems to be good.
>Islamabad is a constructed city, sort like brazilia. Its not very nice and not much to do. If you are going to stay there, stay in rawalpindi, which is where most people who work in islamabad live. Also, go to fucking Peshawar, you will not regret it. >Dat frontier/Kiplingesque/wartorn feel.

Okay so I recently got a job in a larger european airline, which means when I have time of, I can can get plane tickets (Star Alliance) cheap as hell, and get pretty good discounts on some of the major hotels and car rentals.
So I was wondering if you guys could recommend me some good travel destinations for traveling alone. I just want to see the world and get some perspective.
Pic related, rly enjoy my own company, though I have nothing against being social.
I've been round in most of Europe, when traveling with my family, when i was a boy. Well, art, culture, nature, literature, architecture, food, people, music, most things interest me rly. My bad, it was a little vague, but I really don't know where to start.
