Hitchhiking europe for ~40 days with 350-400€. We’ll be only paying for food and occasionally some entrance fees. I’m 19 and my companion is 20 (also male). We don't know the exact route yet (especially back from Paris) but pic related is close. Maybe fast trains from Paris to Milan, then hitchhike to Ljubljana and Zagreb.

Couchsurfing + tent/sleeping bag. Buying Osprey Farpoint 40 in few days, any better options?

There's plenty of free stuff in every bigger and small city. Lot of art galleries, museums, events and I'm happy with just that....

10 euro per day is nothing. It's doable for food if you stick to groceries instead of restaurants, but not when it's also your budget for entry fees. Museums generally aren't free.
>>
We definitely don't plan to eat at restaurants. It will all be at supermarkets or some cheap street junk food. Of course, I will plan out museums/free places to visit in town before hand.

Is there anything we might forget for this trip?

I will have:
>waterproof backpack cover
>raincoat
>tent
>sleeping bag
>bug repellent
anything else?
>>
>>1127306
Good luck when every sight costs you 10 euro+ for the ticket.
You're mostly looking at a trip where you don't enter anything, just walk the streets. Bear that in mind and either find more money or be sure you're ok with that.

I will stay with a host family. They are a couple with no kids. Is this a red flag? I find it odd how they are taking in young travelers when they have no kids themselves.

Yes, they are going to lure you into some deeply bizarre sex and then drug, kill, and eat you. Obviously.

Maybe they themselves, having no kids, are very active world travelers, like those gray-haired Scandinavians one meets in hostels, and hosting keeps them feeling in touch with the world. Maybe they like young travelers because they couldn't...

Only place I've been to in SC is Charleston which is really nice desu. Other than that SC is kind of a dump honestly. The heat will be unbearable for someone who has never left Europe their whole life, let alone a Brit. As for the gun, no, non-citizens can't cc and I wouldn't really worry about it either. As for money, depends how much you plan on relying on your friend and the duration of your stay.

Generally friendly and chatty, though secretly judging you too. I suspect the majority of folks will, for a Brit, almost certainly come off conservative, religious and (let's not beat around the bush) sort of stupid and simple. Don't expect people to know anything much about what happens beyond the region, much less Ol' Blightly. Talk of church, social circles revolving around church, and which church you go to is standard. People shouldn't...

Hello guys.
I want to visit Czech Rep. Slovenia and Hungary on my summer break. I'm looking for some tips, about which places One need to see, what food & drinkd i have to try, form peaople tah actually live there, not tourist guide bullshit. Im uni student so i don't have shitload of money, also im travelling with my gf. Also stories about this particular countries are very welcome/

Don't really know much about Slovenia, but I like their balkan-style barbecue.
Hungary is a culinary paradise, at least for my European taste buds. Wine, fresh vegetables, langos, salamis, all kind of stews, fish soup, really good.
In Czechia definitely beer and Kofola, that's what locals drink...if you want some local spirits then Becherovka or Fernet or Slivovice. For food, definitely try all kind of sauces with knedle, or schnitzels or soups. Typical fast food is fried cheese with fries or in a burger.

For cheap travelling - the cheapest international connection is probably by buses, but there are some good offers for Budapest-Czechia trains as well and they are definitely much more comfortable. For getting around Czechia it mostly depends, but in some directions trains are very fast and cheap. There are private train operators running on the main line from Prague thru Pardubice and Olomouc to Ostrava (and further to Slovakia to Žilina and Košice) and the tickets can get ridiculously cheap. I like to say that this line gives you the best budget train traveling you will ever find in Europe.

I'm also visiting Budapest, and I was wondering if any locals know any good sneaker stores. I know of Nike official and Footlocker on Vaci Utca. Also, if there are any cool thrift shops or local designer shops I'd definitely give those a try. I know what to visit, but I don't know what stores to hit.

Strahovský Klášter (Strahov Monastery) near Prague Castle if you love beer.

food left something to be desired, imo-everything is lemongrass+palm sugar+fish oil. it was delicious for 3 days, then utterly disgusted by it.

if you pick cambodia take the betelnut tour to phnom tamao wildlife reserve. i shill the fuck out of it every cambodia thread i see because it was the highlight of a trip of highlights (and they provide a fucking phenomenal homecooked...

I enjoyed the food overall in Vietnam much more than Cambodia. However the food by the beach in Cambodia was some of the best I've had. I recommend Vietnam though as far as food goes. Cambodia if you want drugs, sex, and tourism with some temples here and there.

I've been doing TEFL in Japan for the past four years and, let's be honest, seem to have fucked myself out of anything else. Have decent Japanese (N2), but other than that, my resume is all TEFL.

Most people I see that seem to be getting into TEFL are only doing it temporarily. Can it be a long-term career? I've heard of university jobs, but assume I will have to move out of Japan for this, since university jobs here in Japan are all contract or part-time only.

So, I'm a bit lost. Any advice?

Nope. Your 4 years of teaching and living abroad can't be applied to anything in the real world.
>>
>>1125308
TEFL can be parlayed to a career as a legit school teacher, at international schools especially. But I don't think Japan has a market that. I think it's pretty much restricted to third world countries where people with money want their kids to have a quality Western education. Like the Middle East and South East Asia.

not everyone does.

but japanese like simple things, generally.

for a while it was illegal for kids to have smartphones, and t's still illegal for japanese stores to have communication apps for kids under 18.

until a kid reaches high schools it's uncommon for them to have a phone that can call more than their parents, school, or emergency.

Hi /trv/!

I'll be kicking off a two month European vacation in February with 4 days in Copenhagen. Any recommendations on what and what not to see & do?
How are the locals?
How is the nightlife?
I know the food is consistently lauded but opinions on that and anything about Copenhagen I'd love to hear.

I'm a local and I'm nice.
Expect February to be cold, wet and dark, but don't let that hinder you from seeing things.
I suppose you want to see the mermaid and the other historical sights. You could walk from Langelinje to the city center and stop along the way for the sights.
For food you could check out Papiroen, but stay away from Nyhavn, it's a tourist trap.
>>
>>1124732
Seconding papiroen.
Nightlife is fun and active, maybe a little less accessible then the rest of Europe.

I fucking love Copenhagen in winter. Only downside is, as soon as it gets dark, it's a little dead, but it's so comfy under the snow.

Food is good, especially for high end dining. In general, I didn't get disgusted by anything, as I love seafood.
