>>1131777 France is famous for good food and whine so you picked a good starting point. Germany is famous for beer and got food as well. So this should be easy. You will also fine art and architecture on your way. Outdoors depends on weather.
Visiting Europe this winter (Dec 16-Jan 16) with a friend. This is a superset of places we want to visit, minus small trips to neighboring towns/cities. Any suggestions to add/remove?
Our interests: -art (Siena, Florence, Vatican, also some architecture -- German cathedrals, Mantua, Pienza, etc), -history (everywhere) -philosophy/logic (Vienna, Gottingen, Ljubljana (ayyy zizek), Athens/Delphi/etc) -literature (not sure about this one) -computer science/math (maybe visit some universities in Athens?)
So, after saving up lots of money and getting the approvals, I'm interested in Studying Abroad for a full year to finish college with a bang and I was looking to do it in France. I do speak French, its my minor actually. I have been to France a few times (Twice in Paris, once in Nice) so I have a bit of an idea what I'm getting into.
However, due to some recent things going on within the news, I'm not sure if I should study abroad in France. I had the opportunity to study Business in Paris and was very excited but I'm not sure now. I can also study... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1131552 Paris is going to cost you a whole lot more than Nice. Don't underestimate the impact of monthly living costs.
>is it safe I'm assuming you're American: yes, it is. Don't worry. Certainly don't cancel your plans if your options are in France! If your options were Karachi and Baghdad I'd reconsider, but you'll be fine. Remember: there are millions of people living there every day without any problems. /pol/ is not reality.

I was thinking about a family trip to Europe with my father and brother. I havent been to anywhere especially exotic.We have all been to a few big cities like paris and Barcelona and london prague etc... What I want to ask is about special places that normal tourists usally dont know about in Europe. I dont want to go to yet another famous big city... I wanna go someplace interesting but in a none touristy way.
Any hidden gems? Bonus points if its cheap there..
>>1131479 Beaune and Lutzelbourg, they're pretty comfy and the food is good. The closer you get to Germany the better the network of bike paths is too, you can easily travel most of eastern France by bike without going on major roads.
>>1131479 >Any hidden gems? >Bonus points if its cheap there.. with the pound dropping UK suddenly became a lot cheaper for American tourists, rent a car explore the countryside, some villages look like open air museums
I'm travelling from Sydney to Helsinki but have a 5:30AM - 2PM layover in Haneda, and was hoping to spend a couple of hours in Akihabara to pass the time.
Is this doable? Is it possible to leave the airport to just have a quick view of Japan? How much yen should I have to enjoy a decent meal and possibly buy a non-animu souvenir? Any recommendations on where to eat and what to get (maybe a daruma doll)?
>>1131344 From Haneda to Akihabara is just a few minutes driving. By taxi, at 6:30AM (considering you'll be able to leave the airport just 1 hour after the plane landed) it shouldn't take you any longer than 20 minutes. By train it'll take a little longer because there are a reasonable number of stations in between. The only problem is that most of the commerce in Japan starts working at 10AM, sometimes 11AM. And it seems like Akihabara is not that different. Considering you should ideally be at the airport... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1131460 Damn. You're right. I didn't factor in the traffic... Is there any other place closer to the airport that you'd recommend checking out instead? I need to get food, at least, and not from the airport.
Also, which consulate do you mean - Japanese or Australian? Sorry I don't know much about this.
>>1131482 You're better off asking in the Japan general. If food price is your concern about eating in the airport, remember that you'll spend to leave and return to the airport plus the trouble of having to go out, find a place and return in time.
Also, consult with the consulate of the country you're traveling to. The country's consulate will say what citizens from other nationalities can and cannot do in their country, not the opposite.
I'm going to Manchester, UK for 4 weeks in July/August. It will be a "study holiday" because I will be attending an advanced English course, but I have the afternoon and evening free. What are some things to do/see in this city, or nearby? I enjoy sightseeing, museums, eating local food... Any input would be appreciated.
I don't know Manchester very well but perhaps if you let us know your budget that might be a good start.
Where are you from?
One thing I can say is that "local food" is largely meaningless in the UK. One thing I love is how we have so much variety in different restaurants. Of course, you should go somewhere and have a Full English Breakfast (most places do them all day so it's not an issue if you aren't able to in the morning).
A tour of Old Trafford might be interesting since they're one of the biggest football teams in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1130089 I am Italian, I've been to England before (London) as a tourist, but never for so long and never on my own. I don'have a set budget yet, I was thinking around 1000 euro, since I already paid for flights and lodgings all I need is a public transport card and living expenses. Will definitely go see Old Trafford, which is the only thing I know about Manchester.
Hi /trv/, never posted here before. Not sure if this is the right board, but didn't know who else to ask.
Are there any sites or services you know of or recommend when it comes to finding cheap apartments, or places to live in general?
I know of many apartment-finding services, but they seem to only list more expensive listings, with prohibitive move-in costs and fees, and I know there are cheaper options out there, but I can't seem to find them. Craigslist seems to yield the same results.
Sorry if this question doesn't pertain, just looking for advice.
The country and city you both live in is obviously needed to give you any help whatsoever. Someone who lives in Tokyo obviously isn't going to be able to give you advice to find a cheap appartment in Orlando
