Planning my first NAM trip with gf and possibly another friend. got 2 weeks. Is a motorbike trip doable? Where should i go? Getting down and dirty isnt a problem for me. ADVICE ME PLEEZ. I dont know much about the country aside from the visa entry.
>>1135728 → Legally? Yes. Ilegally? Also yes. Better if you have experience with bikes because biking in Vietnam is not easy and not for inexperienced bikers. Also, depends from where to where you wanna go in those 2 weeks. I reckon you should be able to cross from north to south without a problem in 2 weeks, but you won't have so much time to enjoy the places.
I tackled biking in 'Nam with zero prior experience and had a good time. I didn't try to go on any busy freeways, though; that shit is dangerous. Two weeks is a very, very short time for a country with infrastructure as shitty as Nam's. It's not a problem as long as you don't try to bite off more than you can chew. If you fly into saigon, only visit places in the south. Ditto for Hanoi in the north.
We didn't buy a motorbike, we just rented for one or two days at a time. You can rent a motorbike from anyone on the street (be prepared to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am moving From North Ridgeville, Ohio (Near Cleveland) to Wolf Creek, Oregon July 6th, everything is planned for me but driving that far alone is punishing. Where should I go to find someone to make the journey with. All of my friends are not busy/not interested or already out of state. Also any advice for someone moving cross country.
I'm a musician and the guy I write songs with just up and left one day without saying anything and he later called me and said he was working on a pot farm and that he had a job guaranteed for me in august. That and the fact that I can't afford to go to Le Cordon Bleu.
I checked the sticky, but it looks like all the working abroad stuff is for low skill work. I don't mean to sound entitled, but what about getting jobs abroad that are higher paying? Like, an actual career? I'm a senior and an EE major, and would really like the opportunity to work overseas, but I actually want to do work related to what I study. Do any of you have any advice/tips for getting jobs overseas? Has anyone ever applied for post-grad school overseas? Is it easier/harder getting into certain countries for a doctorates?

>>1134735 >I imagine this question is dependent on where you live, and where you're trying to go, Indeed, that's why you might start by sharing your own.
Electrical engineering is a pretty broad field. Do you have any specialization yet? As you might imagine, industry in 'foreign' countries tends to work in the language of that country. You're dealing with people on a daily basis who may not have ever taken much language courses. So YOU will be learning their language.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's certainly dependent on where you come from and where you want to go. For me I'm a business student (finance) in Canada, and I want to go out to work in Asia. I am not fluent in any Asian language, so that will automatically close many doors, and basically shut out many more opportunities for me. That being said Singapore or Hong Kong will be my best bet.
I've spoken with more people working in Singapore (as they are typically less stringent in their language requirements) and have learned a lot of it is about either networking, experience, or both.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /trv/! I'm doing this august a 2 weeks roadtrip around Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria with a camping-car. I know that we will visit Sofia, Varna, Bucarest and Constanţa. I think we'll hang 2-3 days to each cities, and some days in Serbia (we will visit a friend home village). We're specially interested in beautiful landscape and historical / cultural places.
A friend wanted to go in Transylvania, is it possible with our 2weeks ? I don't think so but it would be cool. So thanks for the informations!
Hey, anon. Romanian here. I would say to definitely include Transylvania, if you're mainly looking to see beautiful & history rich places. Maybe ditch Constanta - it's not very interesting. If you really want to go to seaside in Romania, there are some resorts that are better. And then there's the Danube Delta, but that's another story.
I'm currently at work, but I will come back later with more info if you're interested.
I'm heartbroken. I have some time off work coming up soon and think getting away may help. I'm planning on just booking a flight somewhere and walking around and drinking in a foreign city for a few days.
I'm in the UK, so somewhere in Europe would be practical. Where would you suggest?
Solo traveller here, will be on the Canuck side in a little while, staying at a nice hotel but want to do some interesting shit at night - ie steer clear of tourist traps, is it worth heading over to St Catharines or Niagara-on-the-Lake to drink / meet people at night?
>>1132811 some people take a motorbike around the island
you can see the rice terraces (that doesn' take long though)
the best thing about bali is the traditional architechture. even peasants live in these richly decortated pagan stone edifice buildings, so you can head into the central island to see that.
go to some of the temples.
a month might be a bit long for just bali, imo. depends on what you want. south kuta has pretty low waves. no one would wnat to surf those for a mnth straight, you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1132811 You can do the typical Mount Batur early morning/sunrise "trek". It's pretty nice, but I'm sure there are some less frequented volcanoes to climb that will give you a nice view of the sunrise.
I'd recommend motorbike around the island. Bali is a beautiful island, and taking it easy by driving around is a lot of fun.
If you want something else to do you can ferry over to Lombok and kill some time over there (once again doing beaches, trails, and such) or relax for a few nights... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just got back from a month long trip to indonesia, stayed in bali for 1 week of the trip. Definitely rent out a scooter for the time you are there. (Honda Beat or Scoopy if you can Vario's are bad) Ride up to see NungNung waterfall, huge waterfall at the bottom of 500 stairs, surrounded by jungle and forrestry. Pic related Kuta beach/ Kuta general if you are club scene and ready to see a bunch of rowdy australians. Plenty of hindu temples to see, would reccomend Tanah Lot, Goa Gajah, Garuda Wisnu. Ubud monkey forest is a great time. Monkeys everywhere and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hey guys So I'm traveling to Brazil to visit my relatives soon. My mother says it's very dangerous there. Have any of you travelled to Brazil and where? How dangerous is it really? I'm traveling to Sao Paulo which isn't extremely dangerous but we're considering Salvador too. I heard it's really dangerous there.. Have any of you been in some of these places or just Brazil?
>>1131782 We're going there for three weeks in December. No we don't have a budget in mind, but I doubt it's more expensive than Southern Europe, is it? We're also considering traveling more south and maybe to the Iguazu waterfalls because it should be safer there than in the north.
My friend and I are heading to Taiwan next month. Looking to find some interesting or exciting to do that wouldn't be as obvious or just for particular recommendations from people who have been to Taiwan. We are particularly interested in trying anything new and unique, something I couldn't do anywhere else. We are also interested in history and seeing some of the nature outside of Taipei, but din't really know where specifically to go.
In terms of history/culture there is the Palace Museum. It has many artifacts related to Taiwanese/Chinese history. Currently, I think they have some terracotta soldiers on loan from China. One of the things the Palace Museum is best known for is the Jade Cabbage. You will probably have to wait in line to see it. Aside from the Palace Museum there is the Chiang kai shek (not sure if that's how it's spelled) memorial hall. I don't really remember much about it since I haven't visited it for years....

My fiancee and I will also will be traveling there for a few days next month... I'm planning to go to Green Island for at least two nights... We'd really like to make room for Jiufen but aren't sure how much time should be spent there. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
So far Itinerary looks like this:
Day one: Arrive Taoyuan Int. around 17:00 By some fucking miracle get transportation to my cheap hotel in Taipei and grab dinner at a night market.
Day two: Get to Shulin Train Station (New Taipei City) and take 4 hour train ride to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Going to Madagascar tomorrow, any last minute tips you guys have? I've learned a little Malagasy, just some basics to be able to thank and address people properly, and stocked up on anti-malaria drugs.
I've read about fady, their local taboos, but is that really something to take into account or is it exaggerated?
>>1135703 >stocked up on anti-malaria drugs You should always buy anti-malaria drugs at the place. There are different strains across the world and different medications. Don't count on the drugs to really protect you, lately there has been high resistance and not only against malaria drugs.
just so you can double check op.... malarone should be fine. remember to take once daily, if you vomit 1 hr after taking pill take another one and IMPORTANT to go to the doctor and inform him of your venture whenever you get sick 1year from visiting a malaria infested region. safe travels
I'm interviewing at a place in Georgia on Friday. I'm from the midwest and have never been to GA before, and have 5-6 hours of free time after the interview until I need to be at the airport for the return flight. What are some things I should do/see when I'm down there? I'll be interviewing about an hour northeast of Atlanta, but have a rental car with unlimited miles.
Also Dirty South general I guess: if anyone lives/has lived down there, info about the good/bad areas, weather, etc. would be much appreciated.
I'm in Atlanta frequently. Definitely do Underground Atlanta if you're into the history of the area -- one of the oldest areas of Atlanta, under the city of course. Little Five Points for food (Tijuana Garage), bookstores, etc. It's going to be hot as the nine circles of hell; there's no other worthy description of July in Hotlanta.
>>1135518 Thanks for the info. I've been checking out houses/apts online for a while now so I'm only gonna spend maybe 30 min to an hour checking out some neighborhoods. The rest of the time I'll probably checking out Atlanta. I might even have some time Thursday since my flight gets in at like 4. Might stop by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area on my way back to Atlanta too.
>>1135519 Unfortunately it's like 4 hours from Savannah, but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/ here is one I figured would be good to ask.I have a ticket to Europe already, and am planning a several month Trip. I dont have an exact plan for returning but do want to plan a return, once I kinda figure this out. With your Experience, what has been some of the cheapest Airports for you to fly out of? Keep in Mind, Just about anywhere Western Europe will do. I will be in France, Spain, Germany and most likely stop in the UK too. If an Airport is another Country near these, I will certainly consider it.
>>1135367 Some of the busiest are, perhaps obviously, Frankfurt and Amsterdam Schipol. I have had relatively cheap transatlantic flights from both of these (I am assuming despite your Strange Use of Capital Letters that you are American). Heathrow may offer deals too, or at least a lot of options, although I've only recently realized, to my embarrassment, that the busiest airports are not necessarily the cheapest.
Norwegian Airlines is supposedly a budget carrier, presumably operating out of Oslo--they not long ago... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
