I'm going to Amsterdam on the 12th of july with my cousin. We're both 21 and from Norway. I've booked five nights at " The flying pig downtown" hostel as I've read a lot of good things about them and it is relatively cheap.
I'm still kind of a noob when it comes to travelling in big cities and I'm usually not much of a party guy (introverted), but I want to let loose and come out of my shell when I'm here, have some fun and hopefully get some friends, and if I'm super lucky, maybe even a girl for a night.

The subway gets you everywhere pretty easily. And in the inner city you can reach a lot by foot. The 'Reeperbahn' is a famous street and quarter mostly known for its nightlife with casinos, clubs, restaurants, political activists, gangs, brothels, music/concert places and all kinds of things in a mix. Nice to have seen it at night but be very careful not to get robbed or scammed, don't let anyone talk to you and so on. Last time I've been there I noticed a lot of immigrants like to spend their time there too as they have nothing else to and might assimilate... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do not go to Bremen and don't even mention Bremen to any local. There is some serious rivalry going on, especially when it comes to Premier League Soccer. :)
If you need a break from the city, go to the Baltic Sea, not far away, city of Lübeck is especially beautiful, entire old town is Unesco heritage.
Well, Hamburg has a lot to offer, yet it is small enough to be able to be comfortable here.
Public transportation is expensive, but gets you everywhere safe and on a great schedule. You can also rent city bikes (www.stadtrad.hamburg.de) which is pretty cool, because first 30 minutes are free, so I always use it to get me from a to b, then drop it off and grab another one later.
Taking a Sunday walk around the big inner city lake (Aussenalster) is a Hamburg tradition.
Reeperbahn, as mentioned before, is the main party district with some strip joints and sex shops left, but is transforming more into a clubbing scene with bars, restaurants, musicals & theaters. On weekends the crowd can be somewhat agressive when drunk, but it is very well police enforced, so only real issue for a normal visitor is getting your wallet stolen when drunk.
Visit Hafencity (the newly built neighborhood at the river Elbe) with the new soon to be opened Elbphilharmonie.
Get yourself to Övelgönne (by bus or car or even bike) and walk along the river towards Blankenese, really beautiful. Famous bar for a sundowner for locals is called "Strandperle". Further up river another one is called "Kajüte"!
Do you need recommendations for overnight stay? Motel One is a chain that offers cheap room rates, standard, modern, clean. Nothing fancy but good value for price.
Food: Cafe Leonar, located in the jewish area of town with nice atmosphere.
Anyhow, if you are still around and have more questions, ask away, I shall check back periodically.
>>1106426 Yeah dude a week would be decent. There are some cool pubs. the blind beggar is where apparently Jack the Ripper would hang out, also the kray twins shot someone in that pub. It's close to Shoreditch which is a decent night out. If you like smoking weed/hash there is a cafe you can buy/smoke at, maybe find some young locals/students and ask them. The cafe is just behind the hospital.
Bare in mind the whole area is very Muslim and if you are white you will be a minority, but it's ok and mainly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, I´ll be living in Thai for around 9 months at the province of chonburi. And got some questions:
Any advice abou thai and the sorroundings of chonburi? Any advice on Thai ppl customs and manners? How´s internet in Thailand? It is cheap to travel through the country? Are there things I should avoid beside traps? Best Thai food dishes I should try?
Any adv is welcome, I just know the basic things about thailand.
Check out Sriracha, home namesake of the sauce, don't let Pattaya's rep scare you away. It's the biggest city in the province and has more going for it than the infamous Walking Street. Especially as an expat. Don't worry about avoiding traps. It's a non issue. Try all of the food, even the bugs. You're there for months.
I envy you, OP. That's a dream for me, move there for sometime. As you see, i never lived there but i know a lot about "the land of smiles". I can't answer all the questions actually but i will try to help you.
>any advice on Thai ppl customs and manners? As i told, Thai is the land of the smiles. Everyone smiles for everything, even if they are sad. But be careful, not every time it can be a positive smile, try not be persuated by it. Also, Thais don't like people yelling. Don't touch thais head for no... Comment too long.

I always told myself that I wouldn't become a wagecuck after I graduate and live in America for the rest of my life. But now I'm starting to fear that it may become a reality. I always wanted to live in Berlin. People always told me to make these kinds of transitions soon after you graduate, or else it will be too late. Maybe I can work for a few years, master German and then move?
>>1105477 I visited auschwitz three weeks back. Although I'd really recommend it, please keep in mind that it is very popular and will be very crowded. In my opinion that really diminished the experience.
In Birkenau we were the only ones apart from a group of orthodox jews, though, as it was the end of the day. Maybe you could try to time your visit towards the end of the day. They only let you in for a certain amount of time (about 3-4 hours) so keep that in mind.
>>1105477 don't ask pesky questions, they don't like that
especially about the 'gas chambers'
you can also tell that a lot of the buildings have been rebuilt or are newer construction than WW2. if you ask them about this they will relent a little but say it was for the purpose of tourist safety
>>1105331 From my experience, a lot of party hostels have a maximum age of 35.
Honestly, with hostels the cliché of 'you're only as old as you feel' does come into play. I've partied with people who were literally twice my age when I was 17/18. I've also hung-out with people who were 70+ years old and staying at the same hostel.
>people that come to visit temporarily and spend their money in your country with minimal impact on your sense of culture are less preferable than people who want to stay permanently uninvited with no skills, completely different morality, religion, language, inability to integrate, and unable to contribute anything whilst being a permanent burden to your state and people
I do what I want, within reason. I make an effort to respect local cultures and customs without forfeiting my own. I basically just try to stay true to myself while opening up to foreign experiences. For example, I'm not going to wear a lungi in India to "fit in," as some people do, because I'm used to wearing pants and that's what I like having over my legs. However, I'm not going to do what I saw a lot of folks doing in Thailand, which is blatantly disrespect signs suggesting a certain... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Me and my friend are planning on moving to Colorado by the end of July this year.
If there are any locals here I would greatly appreciate some pointers on looking for a good spot to live in. We would like to be in a suburban or even more rural area but within a reasonable driving distance to Denver. Some areas that I've been told to look at are Alma, Evergreen, Conifer, Superior, and I have a friend in Crested Butte who might be able to get me a job.
>>1104368 As bad as it can get with the homeless in most major cities in America I've never been to anywhere else in America where such a large percentage of the population just looked poor (not homeless) when I was in Denver. You go inside a place and its nice, but you walk around the city and everyone outside of it just looks so poor
>>1104368 prepar for the cost of living and what you should be ecpexted to pay. have enough money to last till you get a job and finally hope your not banking on a mmj job that is about 2 years late to the party. if that is the case just grow from current location unless surrounding state.
