- How's night life?
- Which state should i live?
And finally if you can give me any advice that would be fantastic.
Thanks!

Can't answer your questions, but you may want to ask /int/. A lot of Australians are on around this time, and they're usually pretty helpful when it comes to this kind of stuff.

What are you studying, and what is your budget?

Vancouver is the most expensive city in NA. Like Manhattan is more expensive, but it's not an actual city itself. I grew up around the red circle, new houses there sell for 3 million +.

There's only 3 big carriers in Canada, they're all kind of shitty, bring your own phone and local calling for $40. Not much of a difference between prices and quality. You're best off using whatsapp and skype a lot on wifi. If you can, get shaw cable...

how do I get into traveling? I want to solo travel somewhere in Europe for a few weeks (I was thinking about starting in the Netherlands and move on from there), but I don't really know how to start approaching this.
For example, how much money should I prepare? Are there any shots I'm supposed to take or something? Should I worried about something like Insurance? I have zero knowledge in any of this.

Even the most complex projects or endeavors can be simple if you break them down into their most simple parts anon. Also, Europe is basically easy mode for traveling, the infrastructure is so good. Just be prepared for everything to be insanely expensive unless you're in E. Europe.

I'm almost done planning a 5 month trip around Asia starting in late July and easily the most difficult/frustrating factor has been the level of indecision from my travel companions.

Hey /trv/, I am looking for advice from anyone who has experience with name discrepancies on different documents in regards to immigration procedures.

I am from the UK, I have a French father and British mother. I have a French first name which is spelled with an e with an accute accent (é). On my British passport, I was unable to have the é in my name, so instead had to spell my name with a standard e. On my French passport I obviously have the é, likewise on my French record of overseas birth. Strangely I also have the é on my British birth certificate as well.

>>However I am worried as apparently immigration authorities often want the name on your diploma to directly match the name on your passport.

Then use your French passport for that?

>>1110157
I can't as I want to teach English abroad. Many countries, like South Korea where I want to go, require that you apply for the visa using a passport from a native English speaking country.

I eventually plan on settling in Canada, but even though my conversational French is pretty good, I wouldn't feel comfortable doing a visa application in French.
>>
>>1110160
Never had this problem so I can't help.
My suggestion is to get in touch with the immigration office of the country you want to apply, explain your situation and ask how to proceed. Probably better than getting advice from /trv/
Or check if you really can't get a UK passport with your name written with é

I'm going to Norway with family in the summer, specifically a sojourn in Oslo followed by a couple of weeks in the western fjords.

What can I expect? Any tips for getting the best out of Norway?

If you want to get the best out of the country, you should visit the north as well.

Also, there's no need to spend any more than a day in Oslo. There's really not much to see except for the Vigeland park, the royal palace and maybe the opera.

You can also expect very unpredictable weather. Especially on the west coast. Don't be surprised if it rains the whole time. That's why I'm glad I live in Norway, as I can travel whenever the weather is nice.

Oslo is a expensive city. I was there for two days and spent over $150 USD on 4 meals (no alcohol).

TusenFryd is the only legit amusement park in Norway and is in the Oslo area. I'd check that out if I was there.

If you can get to the Isle of Skye it is very beautiful. There is a bridge leading to it from the mainland in the west of Scotland, so you can drive there.
Amazing mountains, cliffs and coasts. Nice drives and hikes.
Other than that there is loads of stuff to see in the Highlands but that's all I know really!
Good luck with the weather anon, hope you enjoy.

Has anybody lived in New Mexico? I live in Chicago, and I am interested in moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have only been there once for a hiking trip, and I thought it was beautiful.

I've also heard it's pretty depressing from others though. I do a lot of /out/ stuff, so I find it interesting in that way. Anybody have any experiences they can share?

If you can't afford the sky-high Orlando theme park tickets at their regular price, I recommend not going. The heavyweight theme park resorts here are very slowly turning into places reserved for the rich, through pricing out the middle class. If you're going to be on a budget, you'll be miserable.

Na I've done it all before anyway, it's just since the last time I went tickets have gone up and I've heard they are strict with ticket resellers. Not going on a budget just trying to save where I can.
>>
>>1109948
The only real way to save money without dealing with shady 3rd-party park ticket sellers is to stay at a hotel not on resort property. Even those are still expensive, but at least you'll be able to afford it. Don't go too cheap with the hotel, though. We did that once and we were the only guests that spoke English.

Hello guys, I just saw that there's now cheap flights from my location to the island of MALTA - I'm considering to go for a week.

Has anyone been? What did you think of the place?

I'm mostly interested in places that have a strong local culture, maybe some interesting nature, not TOO touristy (not Venice/Ibiza/Magaluf-level). I'm interested in good local food, churches and a historical/archaeological backdrop.

Would you recommend MALTA to me? I'm mostly concerned that it might be some hyper-touristy resort-town place (see pic)

I was there last year july/august and it was superb. Just mind the weather, its super hot in there that time, rest of the year should be warm and sunny too.

Its perfect place to visit for you if you like that kind of things and im sure you wont be dissapointed. Cant reccomend much about the food cause i had all inclusive option bought and mosty i ate in hotel.

what you HAVE to see in Malta/Gozo :

Mdina - I reccomend going during the day and in the evening, yopu will see why.

Plenty to see in Valletta only, barraka gardens, harbour, grandmasters palace.....
