American searching American cities: I'm searching for programming jobs right now. There's plenty, but I want to pick a city where I can live within a 25 minute walk of my job and a 5-10 minute walk of a grocery store. Also affordable, doesn't have to be particularly beautiful. What cities would be good?
I had an internship in Detroit that fit these criteria and loved it, but I'd rather not go back for personal reasons. Also, Chicago seems to fit the criteria but I'm from the area and wanted to try living somewhere new.
>>1137264 Me and few of my friends were driving a car from Finland to Italy moth ago. We stopped at Worthersee, looking for place to swim because we were dirty as shit. I accidentally drove us into middle of fucking Velden. Which is the most disgusting thing imaginable. Also the whole lake is fenced off/private property. We managed to snuck in and go down through very thick forest. It was complete shit and the lake itself was muddy and cold.
What are some must see/do things in San Francisco, and some fun things to do in Santa Barbara for a day? I'm going to California on July 28th until the 10th of August. I'll be staying in Santa Barbara for a day or two and spending the rest of my time in San Francisco with family. I'd like to see the golden gate bridge, fisherman's wharf, and Lombard street, but other than that I don't have anything on the itinerary.
If you have the opportunity, take Route 1 from Santa Barbara to SF. One of the most beautiful drives in the country. Stay on 101 until you hit San Luis Obispo.
I'm don't have a ton for SF, but walking around neighborhoods and seeing the crazy angle of some of the streets is neat. You can do that around the Russian Hill neighborhood where Lombard St is. Seeing some painted ladies are cool, neat architecture. Hiking to the top of Twin Peaks is good too.
If you have access to a car, there's a ton in the surrounding bay area that's great. Muir Woods,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1137251 If the weather is good, a climb up the Filbert Steps to Coit Tower is seriously picturesque--both the climb itself and views from the the top at the base of the tower are really beautiful. You can then walk down Telegraph Hill into North Beach for some further quality sightseeing, there and in adjacent Chinatown. Climbing the tower gives you still a greater view, but it's optional and not free.
Most locals will discourage Fisherman's Wharf as a tacky, inauthentic tourist trap. It is. But if you're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
* definitely visit Strasbourg. I'm maybe a little biased because it's my city, but it's one of the finest cities in France. The city center and the Petite France neighborhood are really nice (pic related), and the cathedral is something special.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do you already know where and how long to stay ? Colmar would be one of the comfiest places in Alsace, lovely in itself and quite close to other major Alsatian cities. Among the usual touristic spots be sure to at least not miss Strasbourg's cathedral and European Parliament, the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle and Ribeauvillé. Mulhouse might interest you for its zoo and Train and Automobile museums, which are actually pretty cool for such an all-around shitty city. According to me, the best trip you could have in Alsace in summer would be to just drive/cycle to random villages... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1137195 (2/2) * Check Colmar, it's a neat little city with ancient architecture and canals, and their art museum (Unterlinden) is worth a visit. However, Colmar gets boring quickly and I would not advise to stay there for more than a day.
* Go to the Vosges if you like outdoors. There are some gorgeous sceneries in the hautes Vosges, which can be easily reached from Colmar (20-30 minutes drive, there are also buses and trains). I recommend hiking near the Hohneck mountain or near the gazon du Faing / lac des... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How difficult is it to find a job teaching at an international school if you are not a native English speaker? I am Latino and I moved to the States at a really young age and I speak English with a slight accent even though I speak it fluently. Is it a deal breaker for most employers if I am not planning to teach the English subject?
I've also heard that many international schools in Asia prefer white teachers. I am mestizo. Will it be really difficult to find a job because of my race?

Also anyone knowledge about schogen area visa protocol? As I said before have been in europe, mostly france for almost 6 months, most of that time in legion. Any ideas how that impacts the 90 day visa that us citizens auto recieve in schogen area? I have release paper from legion reflecting the length of my stay there and only one stamp on my passport from iceland during my connecting flight. Can I simply say my I left and returned both times without a stamp as was the case with mu intial arrival in france, should i tell them the truth, should i just lose my passport and get...

>>1137064 If you read there you will see that I state I have release papers from the legion which I would think one would be able to infer from this statement that I went through the necessary avenues in order to reobtain my passport.
You are not guaranteed citizenship after 5 years in legion. Its complicated however for most countries 7 years is a more realistic estimate.
>>1137014 subway is great; i live in nyc and take it every day. i get a monthly pass, so i'm not sure of cost, but googling that is really goddamned simple. you're likely going to find a 7 day pass cheaper, if you plan to use the subway a bunch. where are you staying?
>>1137014 7 day pass is the way to go if you're moving around a lot. It will take you north south anywhere in Manhattan fast. Anything east-west in Manhattan is walkable for an able bodied person. Subway will also take you to any worthwhile place in the outer boroughs.
Hey /trv/, im going on a trip to the Balkans and im thinking about going with this route (pic related). I will be travelling by bus. However, there are some things i wonder about which i hope you can answer: Do you have to register your stay at a police station in Serbia/Macedonia? Is Kosovo worth the effort? Would you skip going deep south into Albania?
And also i would like to know about gems or other top tier sights that you may know of (that is not too far away from the designated route). Im well sure about what i can do in Croatia, BAH and Montenegro but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1136993 Haven't ever been to Serbia (sadly). But Zadar is worth a visit, if you're going there. Second, surely it's easer to visit Podgorica when you're visiting the Montenegrin coast already? Going from Kosovo to Montenegro to Serbia seems like a huge hassle.
I would add pics from Zadar. But I was an idiot and did not make back-ups before hard-drive failure. :(
I'm obviously not sure about the southern part of my route but things will turn out when I go there. I'll just let it happen. I advise you to do the same. Don't plan every top tier sight you want to see. If they're close to your designated route you'll find about it anyway.
Also: all of these countries are pretty small, you can just roam around the region
I will bring a tent with me. Will I be able to go wild camping or do I have to stick to camping sites?
>>1136996 I suppose i could visit Zadar if i wanted to because it would not be out of the way. It's just that i am abit worried that spending too much time on the croatian riviera will blow my budget, i heard it's a little expensive. Reason to go from Kosovo to Montenegro again is because, if i understood right, i can't cross from Kosovo in to Serbia.
I think you're better off spending your time and money elsewhere; you're not going to see anything spectacular
I went to Liechtenstein on a day trip from Zurich; there's nothing to see in Liechtenstein really, I wouldn't be bothered visiting it's just a basic little town with a mediocre castle. I honestly just went for the sake of saying I've been to Liechtenstein
I decided to have a 4 day holiday in Luxembourg City. I seen pretty much the entire city in 6 hours. The next day I went to Vianden Castle which was nice. The other two days... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I did that drive a few years ago. Buy an annual national park pass for sure. It'll get you into any national park or national monument for free. Make sure to stop in the badlands for a day in South Dakota. I reccomend staying in Cody Wyoming on the way into Yellowstone. Also, if you have time, drive down to Jackson Wyoming and stay there for a few days if you have the time. It's one of the best little cities in the US. If you have money to splurge, go do a whitewater rafting trip or take a horse ride in jackson.
It depends on how many national parks you plan on visiting in the next year. If you're only visiting a couple national parks/monuments just pay the regular entrance fee, it's good for 7 days at national parks.

I am starting to look into a trip to Nepal and Bhutan, perhaps sometime in October 2017 to co-inside with Kukur Tihar, the dog appreciation day Festival.
I am thinking of spending a week or two in Kathmandu and around Nepal, mainly staying in Air BNB accommodation, with a 5-day visit to Bhutan in the middle.
My wife is not very adventurous, but I have heard that the Nepalese and Bhutanese are very friendly, and both countries are quite safe. I have also heard that sanitation and facilities are what you would expect.

I don't think fruit juices need sugar either, but if you're talking Aqua Frescas, they're hit with the brightness of lime juice, so it balances that out. Some tropical drinks are kind of pasty filmy almost bitter, such as mamey or guanabana. Of course it counters underripe fruit in packaged juice brands, or bitterness from peels.
So I want to travel somewhere in February 2017, I live in Australia and I would like to go somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. My problem with travelling to Europe at this time is the lack of daylight hours and wet weather/snow may detract from the experience. Canada and the US East Coast will be freezing and snowing as well I presume. Been to Japan twice and travelled most of Asia so I'm not interested there (hence why I've been looking at the US)
I've been told the best place in this case may be the west coast US, I will be travelling for a month and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1136479 It will be cloudy, rainy and 40 degrees F in Seattle pretty much all the way down to California. It will be cloudy and 50s down through the San Francisco area.
The further south you go, the more sun youll get. I love the PNW and the west coast in general, but if you are looking for someplace warm you will need to revisit this idea. Even Los Angeles will only be about 65F during the day and could be in the 40s at night.

I've road tripped the west coast in February several times and it is actually pretty awesome. If you like raging pacific storms, crashing waves and horizontal rain it is actually a lot of fun. I actually enjoy that environment and there are brief periods where it is not pouring rain and the beaches are deserted and perfect for beach combing. Prices are low and you don't need reservations anywhere.
Then there is terrific skiing and winter sports in the Sierras.

if you want warm, and I'm not saying you do or you should, but coming from your summer to that area's winter ...
LA to San Diego along the I-8 thru Yuma to Tucson to Phoenix then go home whichever way you want
However i dunno the kinda stuff you wanna see when you travel or how dedicated you are to avoiding the cold and the wet
I personally love the rain, but I have lived in Miami, Boston, Texas, Baghdad, Georgia and DC so the extremes of heat, cold, humidity, and dry have worn me out like your mother's box. I can deal with clouds and drizzle... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
