So, I have a friend that's going to college in Brooklyn and he thinks he's going to hate and get depressed because he thinks it will be just as pack and busy as NYC. So my question is: is Brooklyn just as busy as NYC?
Anything goo stuff to do in Manchester? I will be going there to attend an HR conference but will be only for one day. Any other things to check out in Manchester while there? Besides visiting Old Trafford, although I'm not a huge football fan.
Visit the Manchester Museum of Science & Industry on the west side of town. They have a working replica of a locomotive built in 1830 for the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, the world's first modern railway (the museum building is its former terminus). They have other neat things, too.
>never really traveled before >going to NYC alone for 8 days >staying at a hostel, just so I have more opportunities to meet people how do i have a good time?

things I plan on doing: >hiking breakneck ridge (never really hiked before though) >restaurants, places without waiters, so you can go alone: >>halal guys stand >>shake shack would like to go to others (like sit in restaurants like ninja new york), but afraid of waiting in long lines by myself or sitting at tables meant for groups by myself >attractions >>museum of modern art >>central park >>empire state and/or the rock >>highline park >>brooklyn bridge
i'm thinking of going to bars. but i don't go to them here at home (no friends to go with). i don't know what to wear, or even what to say to complete strangers at bars.

>>1114825 I just can speak for Basel: If your Master is Pharmacology related or anything close it might be your best bet as you can easily score a job there if you want and the university is funded by all the big players in the industry.

Finland has lots of nature available everywhere and it's a huge part of local interaction and probably the greatest part of experiencing the country, but other than that I wouldn't recommend spending two years if you don't have anything solid to do here.
And I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for when you say 'cool', but Finland at summer isn't anywhere as cold as people seem to think. It can and will be as high as 35 degrees Celsius, and at most sunny days it'll be around 25.
My travel/backpacking clothes tend to start stinking after a few weeks out on the road. I know everyone recommends merino wool but it is both expensive and too heavy in terms of packing weight and hotness in the heat. Polyesters/Nylons are cooling, lightweight, and dry fast but they start smelling like absolute death. Cotton is completely shunned by the travel community but I wonder if I took a bunch of solid white cotton t-shirts I could just bleach them in the sink every few days to avoid the stink and get rid of stains?
>>1114771 Cotton isn't smartly shunned as travel clothing entirely, it just doesn't help against hypothermia when wet/damp if that is an issue for your travels ("death picks cotton"). It's comfortable, breathable and healthy on the skin so it has its purpose, and is alright in a wool blend, but it can take more than overnight if airdrying.
It's the poly and non-gortex nylon that smells, because I think down on the microscopic level it's pretty porous with little exchange like the plumping that happens with natural stuff, so soap doesn't really wash it out..memory. It's why they dry fast too, though.
Try a brand called Ibex or look to Patagonia. You could also pack some of the Sport Tide or a washing bag that scrubs the hell out of it. Or just pay for some hotel laundry, and skip the sink and air dry. Heat drying kills bacteria too, and resets those fibers and wrinkles.
so i think i kinda wanna make this road trip (solo i guess) in the next few weeks.
google says its a 30hr drive, but im only 12hr from denver so i think i might try to stop there too (if i follow through with this which is the point of this thread) but is there another cool spot between denver and oregon that i could/should stop at as well?
this is all something im kinda just coming up with as i go but im thinking;
drive to denver stay the night hang out there for a day head out stop at second town, hang out there a day head to oregon stay... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
not sure what you're into, but from an /out/ perspective: yellowstone>salt lake city. coming home i'd jam south down i5 out of portland, maybe hit crater lake if time for the detour, swing west from sacramento to san francisco then take 120 east through tuolumne (hit yosemite valley while in the area) to 395 south through the owens valley to i40 east. stop at grand canyon for sure.
havent calculated money yet but ill be keeping it pretty tight. and i dont work so i can have as much or as little time as i need. and ive got a high school friend that lives in denver so i imagine i can stay there while im in town and then the rest of the places ill either camp or airbnb i assume. im new to camping so i dunno how well that would go.
that sounds like a great route back though, im gonna map it out and see what the time difference would be.
Almost the same, but >Dozens of locals warn you that you can't send mail internationally from the post boxes that you're about to use >They refuse to sell you stamps for the same reason >Drop post cards in the post box with no stamps >A few weeks later family says thanks for the cards
I'd like some advice about work and live abroad. /adv/ does not work, so I decided make thread here.
Finished highschool with Information technology course. Couldn't afford go to university since lack of money and family personal problems. Father died couple months ago. Besides Portuguese, I do speak spanish and english fluently. Know a little of Italian and German, still can't speak in a fluent way. I've no problem to work in other areas that's not related with computers.
I did some research about some countries that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Me and 4 buddies were looking to stay in spain a couple of days. Any EU-bros know the regulations of what you can carry in your hand luggage? I've read you're not supposed to bring any kind of liquid? Is a deodorant stick falling under that category?
Any liquids, gels and pastes need to be in containers 100ml or under and presented to security in a clear ziploc bag separate from your luggage. Your ziploc bag can be up to 20cm x 20cm and you can have up to 10 items in the bag. You just take it out before the security checkpoint and put it back in afterwards.
>>1114636 Advice... yes and no. If you can get into shearing (well, technically rousing, which is a fancy word for picking up wool) you'll be onto a pretty good wicket. Very hard work, but easy enough to pick up. I make about $1,000 a week doing that, most of the work is over summer. You usually get fed as part of the deal, and a lot of the shearers follow the work so there's always somewhere you can stay. Generally farmwork in Aus, at least where I'm from Victoria) is over the summer, so Dec-Apr, the rest... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I need some holiday advice, kindof. I was thinking about taking my partner on a holiday for a week or so to a place in Brisbane in about a month and a half, but we broke up recently and I kind of still want to go but I feel weird going myself. Nobody I know can go, and the few that could I don't talk to anymore > 2015 was the year for losing friends I don't like going to pubs and clubs alone, and I feel like I would maybe see the city and do some shopping one day, then just sit in the hotel room bored getting stoned, drunk and...

>>1114594 I'd look up if there are any things like festivals (food, film, music, whatever) going on, check out places to eat, try to find any cool nature spots... those are all the ideas I have I think. I'd go for it, it might get lonely but idk. It'd still be a break from your regular life. Which city are you from, out of curiosity? I'm melb
>>1114631 I've looked up a couple things that will be going on at around that time, but there's not really a lot I actually want to do. One of my biggest concerns is simply that; start off doing things I want, get lonely and bored and waste all my time doing nothing. I was going to pay for a friend of mine to come down so I'd have someone to go to clubs/shows with but he couldn't get any time off work. This will realistically be my first holiday since I was a child so I'm pretty keen, and after the last... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't suppose any of you have ever done this, but I just recently joined the military. I figure I'm going to save my cash, and before I go into college, I'll finish the journey with either a friend or a stranger. Any tips?
