I'm in a bad way right now. I'm really depressed, I have no motivation and I'm just fucking miserable. The last thing I did that I actually felt happy was when I vacationed to Italy in December. I think I want to work abroad for some time. I did some googling and found this website. Does anybody know if this is a credible program? Has anyone done it?

Please give me advice /trv/

Bump! Not op but I'm interested to hear Anons's opinions on this one too.

Never heard of this particular one before, but it just seem like an easy way to get hardly-paid foreigners to come do shitty work. Probably not a "scam" per se, but when they say 'minimum 200€ per month', they probably really mean 'maximum 200€ per month'. If you have the money, go for it, if not, don't expect to make something close to minimum wage.

So my wife and me love traveling and we already did a lot of it. Now we have a child and of course do not want to finish traveling. We think about doing a SEA trip because it's not too hard to get along with a kid there.

Who can share some experiences? Not necessarily SEA-related, but rather about traveling with a child in general?

I travel a lot with my wife and our two kids (6 daughter and 4 son). It can be everything from fun to absolute shit tier.

What I can tell you forget about the "real traveler" thing with a baby at least my wife was always up for adventures and doing crazy things, once we had our first daughter that changed not because of her but "we have to plan, we have to get x,y,z..." and most hostels are out of the equation.

Get together all the toys your child would need to be entertained and then use them to entertain the child in your home until they're at least 10.

Bringing babies on a plane is incredibly disrespectful to other travelers and you're wasting your money dragging a kid to places he won't appreciate while he's too young. It's fantastic parenting to travel a lot with an older child/teenager but it's better off for everyone involved if you just leave him with grandma or something while...

Do you have more than 5 years of experience? (Alternatively at least a bachelor's), and currently make over $70k? Just find a job and you have a good chance of a EU blue card, in Sweden at least. Which is the Nordic country you want to live in if you work in tech.

This Russian Visa process is confusing me....

I'll be visiting Russia after 3 months of Europe travel, but apparently the visa is only valid from 3 months after getting it?

Also, I have to make an itinary of everywhere i'll be staying, but I'll be spending about half my nights on the train?

Has anyone else worked out an easy way to get a russian visa in my situation? I'm australian btw, even just a link to sites that work out the visas for you would be fine thanks.

try http://waytorussia.net/Travel/VisaSupport.html as it has alot of hotels listed in many cities. When going to your friendly local russian embassy you need to fill out the name of this company that has the website as the entity as the inviting part.

I suggest you write an email to the embassy and ask, as I only did a few flights and a road trip to one city. I think if you spend more than 24hrs in one city that you need to put it in your itinerary

only that it takes years of experience to do something of that magnitude, people literally die trying to cross the pacific or atlantic in a sailboat

do you own a boat?
if not, a good boat is very expensive

if you really want to do this your first step should be joining a sailing club, learn the skill, partake in competitions and such

I wish you all the luck in the world but this is not something to be taken lightly, nor is it a matter of practicing for a few weeks

Hey /trv/, what do you think of Cyprus?

Having finally been to the North, I must say I greatly prefer it to the south (which I visited several years ago). In particular, I liked the Dipkarpaz peninsula, with its natural vulgarity over the extremely tourist leaning south (I won't profess to being a REAL TRAVELLER TM). I found some of the most beautiful beaches on the entire Med in the Karpaz peninsula, all naturally occuring - warmer water than Spain, France, Italy, and Greece whilst being almost entirely devoid of human life.

Scotsman living down south here, can I ask what part of the south you visited while you were here?

I wont deny the entire economy relies on tourism down here, particularly Agia Napa. But when it comes to getting shitfaced and dancing til you get heatstroke surrounded by 6/10 essex girls, there's no better place for it. Anywhere, I think.

Of course, that's probably not your thing if your favorite beach is devoid of human life. Did you visit the beach where you can look into the dead zone?...

I hope you don't mind if I ask a second time.

So I'm thinking of travelling a vague route like in pic related.

Start out in Tokyo, go down to Osaka/Kyoto (Is Hiroshima worth visiting?) and then going upwards towards sapporo via the other side of Japan, hopefully seeing some nice countryside, going for a hike and visiting an onsen on the way. What are some places that I should definitely visit on my way up to sapporo (and on the way down back to Tokyo)?

The whole trip will be a bit less than a month.

So I am 25, and I never experienced a real adventure in my life. This year I started to work, so I get a little money to spend, and I found an intresting offer from a travel agency. 26 day long journey from China to Tibet, Nepal, and India.

I am very tempted by this offer, basically the program would be following in a tldr version:
China - Beijing, great wall of china, forbidden palace, shanghai, terracota army, pandas in sechuan
Tibet - Lhasa, buddhist temples, flight around mount everest
Nepal - Kathmandu, durbar square, rafting, travelling and observing rhinos...

It's all good mane, we all start somewhere. The general consensus (from a current thread about solo travelling) is that it's orders of magnitude more meaningful and fulfilling.

On one side it's prolly worth it because navigating Asia for yourself might be hell, on the other side it isn't because you're doing memes and nothing else and it's guided, not really an adventure there.

Alternative suggestion: plan ahead and meet people from the countries/cities which you can meet, you can still do the memes and then find some interesting...

Keeping Belgium's main airport closed for that long would likely have a bad effect on the country's economy.

That said, it'll probably be filled with armed guards and things like the security check will take 3x as long.

I came here to ask that.
My mother is coming on friday and we are travelling together on sunday.
I wonder how much time it will stay closed. Belgium pretty much only has zaventem and charleroi, the rest of the airports are so small

Yeah, it'd be massive economic shutdown if they kept it closed for more than a few days. Don't worry OP.

Maybe worry a little bit. You can always call your airline for more info.

Anyone here travelled with an equipped bus ?

With a friend we're getting our bus licence, we should be able to buy able for the end of the year and then start working on.

We're 8 people (possibly 10 by this time) and we were wondering if a 2-floor bus would be a good idea.

Is there country where bus cannot go ? Not place like jungle but country where for some stupid reason bus would be forbidden.
Also bus general.

>8 people (possibly 10)

You would want to be REALLY good friends.

How long are you going for? It would want to be for a while to make it worth it but the longer it is, the harder it will be to bear all those people in an inescapable space.

Two floors might be better because you could break up the group a bit and people could avoid the people they're sick of.

It was super easy, but we got a bit worried when our plane was 'full' a few minutes before we boarded.
Saved us a fuck ton of cash though.
