I currently live in Toronto, Canada as a fresh college graduate with my mother downtown and I am debating if I should start my career here or in San Jose, California.
The career I am pursuing is a police officer. Cops in Toronto start off at 58k CAD which is 44k USD. Cops in San Jose start off at 84k USD which is 110k CAD.
If I were to join Toronto Police, I would have to stay 6 years to reach 110k CAD when San Jose starts at that salary (84k USD). If I were to stay 6 years in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Things to think of. If you are a police officer they may require you to live in the city you serve, the city I live in in us requires this, though there are ways around it. Also Canada is much safer with less violence possibly why they make less money. Also have you thought about competition? I didn't think it was that easy to just get a police position in a large city, but if you are qualified then go for it. Also, the Bay Area/San Jose have many many towns and suburbs, Mayb keep checking the job postings/city websites of all of them as well.

Hello guys, from past lack of money or friends I never traveled in my life, always delaying it for a better time. I live in Israel and it was always my dream to visit places like Venice, Rome, Prague, Amsterdam, Berlin and a couple others that don't currently come to mind. (yeah I know, entry level places, but its a start) Suddenly one of my friends decided to get married and have the ceremony in two months in Bled, Slovenia. Now as beautiful and interesting this place seems, it's nowhere near my list of destinations. Plus the flight there is about 1.5x more expensive... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Fist off, thank you so much for the reply, I'll check out the sites and the cities. Trieste and koper sound like a solid midway destination, but as for milano from what I see it doesn't matter as much if I fly there or Venice, will look more into it.
>>1118143 As a first time traveler, a paranoid one at that, you should go ahead and book all the transport, if not all your accommodation. It'll help you to relax about it all hanging over you. Summer is THE time to be a tourist in these major cities as every school kid is out of school, so expect it to be hot and annoyingly hot with high prices and high occupancy and crowds. I wouldn't go to Rome or Venice in the summer (but you could).
Is price an issue or just going to hit off your biggest favorite dreams... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/. I made this thread on /pol/ yesterday and it went about how you would expect from pol.
You see, 2 years ago when I got my job I told myself i'd try to save $5000 to begin my dream of going to Japan. I picked up a second job in 2015 and worked relentlessly, about 40 hours a week. I didn't buy a car, walked home (i'm 90 minutes from work walk-wise) and cut my spending to just food and bus tickets.
Now, 2 years later, i'm finally at my $5000 personal goal. What a ride.
So, now I want to "begin" my journey. I'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1117713 >*Join the navy/military and hope to get stationed in japan. If not, they'll pay for your 4 year bachelor's degree when you get out You could try this. Seems kinda like a waste of the past 2 years though. Maybe if you took a vacation there with the money then joined the military after you knew for sure you were making the right choice?

However. Do you think I will go to japan for 14 days, spend $3000, come back, and say "Holy crap that was awesome and totally worth 2 years of suffering. Now let's do 2 more years of suffering to make our 5k back"
Probably not. I'll probably be exhausted, give up my dream, and buy a car and settle down. Right now, this might actually be a "once in a lifetime chance" to reach... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
so I'm planning my first trip to europe, hopefully to happen late august-december of this year. I'll be backpacking and mostly taking trains/public transport or short flights. I'd like some outside perspective because honestly the route looks like kind of a mess right now (to be fair this mapping program is shit) and also I have no idea what i'm doing. so, if this were your trip, what would you add/cut from it? also just general advice for backpacking europe I guess.
>>1117291 - I'd spend less time in England on this trip, London'll be enough - Paris is largely an Arab/Gipsy tourist trap these days, just saying. (I seriously thought I woke up in Kabul last time I got off the bus in Montmartre) - Skip Luxembourgh, nothing to see there - For the love of god skip Brussels, any Belgian will concur, have Antwerp as your base instead, and see Bruges and Ghent, and the coast from there - Amsterdam is fun, go to Haarlem or up north in the province to see something else of Holland,...

Dublin is a good starting point and 2-3 days are okay. And in general there is nothing wrong with the places you want to visit. But you make the same mistake as most "first trip to Europe" guys. You rush it. You want to spend 2 days "in a region". Sounds good. But you will end up spending one day to arrive and one day to depart and have no day left to actually see something. So better slow down a bit and at cut half of your targets from your list. Or more. Think about your priorities. Where do you really want to go? What is essential? What is just... Comment too long.

Visiting the towers is a must, though the climb up is precarious. Also, you should take a train to Faenza, it's gorgeous, I went there with my grandad to locate the nearby war memorial and I fell in love with that little town.
I am going on a road trip with one of my best friends this summer.
We take my Ford Sierra to a distance of max 3000km from Holland. We will stay at campings and hostels along the way thus the travel itself is already cool. . Just missing: a destination.
/trv/ I need a place that holds dark secrets or is haunted or whatsoever. I need a place that leaves impressions like Pripyat or catacombs of Paris has left me. . I asked around, most of the suggestions I get are very touristic and have no real excitement like I search for. It's is kinda hard... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm planning on bike touring Europe in October (around 40 days). I'm taking the Rhine Cycle Route up to Switzerland from Rotterdam, then going down to Marseille via the Rhone. I'll be doing it in a shoestring budget, camping/couchsurfing when possible and cooking most of my meals. I have a question though, that will have a deep impact on my planning:
Are Germany and France safe to wander around with the ongoing refugee/migrant crisis? I'm not just talking about getting pick pocketed by Romanians in tourist traps. I'm talking about accidentally... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Amsterdam, well - if you must. Rotterdam is interesting, just chain up your bike. Arnhem is boring as fuck and literally without any significant landmarks or anything to view or do. Swap it out for The Hague.
Finn here. It would be easier to answer the work question if you would tell where you are from/what is your nationality. So if you're an EU citizen, then you can work,study etc. At least by legal issues, because then we get to the other point: language.
Finnish is weird, unique language, found to be very hard to learn by everyone (except estonians, their language is pretty much the same) If you work as a cook/cleaner and jobs where you're not excepted to serve customers, english will do fine. And there is quite a few english speaking bartenders in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1118532 Honestly, I don't think there are any noteworthy amusement parks in the area. Best you'll get is a decent coaster or two and than a bunch of generic rides in the vein of top spins etc You either satisfy yourself with meh parks like Energylandia in Zator or Vidampark in Budapest, or aim higher and make your way to western Germany to visit Europapark or Heidepark.
