Basically the part of Cancun that most people see is the resort area. So the whole beach area is just built up with resorts, restaurants, shopping malls, activities that focus on tourists and so on. Basically everyone except the cleaning ladies speaks English there. The restaurants are all either American chains or serve Americanized food (think senor frogs). They're all there to serve American, Canadian, or European tourists.

Then there's the other side of Cancun. The actual city where people live....

Its pretty self explanatory. Youll be getting a junk phone but since its a burner thats to be expected. You can find a gorillian of them at any walmart, 7/11, most gas stations, etc etc. From what ive been reading about how europe does things, it seems its more or less the same.

The only caveat i can think of is possible roaming charges, but if youll be in the same area the whole trip that wont apply to you. Things like data and the like will be blatantly marked on the packaging.

Typically you buy a cheap phone at wal-mart or kmart, buy cards in certain dollar amounts, and call some phone number to activate it. Maybe if lucky, some person at a register and counter in the electronics dept will help you get it charged up and ready to use. There are many choices and each store sells whatever brand they deal with, from cricket to whatever.

Moving from Spain to the UK will depress the shit out of you. So many Brits are leaving the UK for Spain to escape the dull mediocrity of life in a grey, highly taxed shithole.

I left to move to Cyprus myself, and every time I go back to visit I just want to leave again after I see my family and friends.

But that's just me, everybody is different. Cypriots here are flocking to London when they leave high school because it's cool.

Hey /trv/ planning to drive from Connecticut to New Orleans this May. We may end up stopping briefly in Washington D.C on the way down as well, but New Orleans is our main destination. Any recommendations for stops on the way? And what are things to do and avoid doing in New Orleans? Also, is it feasible to camp out somewhere, campgrounds etc. instead of renting a room? Thanks.

Stop in Charleston and Savannah on the way there.

>And what are things to do and avoid doing in New Orleans?
I dunno, what are your interests? What I may find fun and what you find fun may be two different things. As for shit to avoid, stay in the CBD, FQ, Marigny, Treme, and the Garden District. The area around the huge park in mid-city (or is it uptown?) isn't that sketchy and is okay.

As for campgrounds, there are a few national parks nearby, don't know the rules for those though.

depending on which route you take, you could stop in atlanta and see the coke factory and an awesome aquarium, the dixie stampede in pigeon forge, tn, obviously the smithsonian in DC is the best side trip, but other than that id probably advise you to vacate the south asap

new orleans is fucking great tho. but you end up eating a lot.

Excluding flights I want to spend about £2500 for a trip of 8-12 days in Tokyo for 2 people. I am not sure how to get the most for my money. I want a relatively nice hotel, but think I would prefer to have more spending money while there. I've currently booked a hotel which I can cancel the reservation for at no charge for a while and have calculated for the 9 day trip my girlfriend and I would have about £200 a day as spending money. We both love food (not necessarily expensive food). Any tips on what kind of hotel/spending money trade off should be? Also any recommendations...

Hey guys,

Travelling to Italy in June with my GF. We plan on staying 11 days total and visiting mostly Rome and the Amalfi Coast.

Questions:

1.Is a car worth it? Specifically in Amalfi?
2. How reliable are the trains? Are they on point like Germany?
3. How safe is Italy? My gf is worried but I assure her it's fine
4. Anything specific to do in Rome/Amalfi besides the obvious things
5. Is 11 days over kill? I throw in a few days for travel and what not, fearing trains are late or slow.

Id recommend getting a better taste in video games.

Trains are pretty reliable.
Whats 'normal'?

11 days might be too much for just those two places. I'd go to florence at least a couple days, venice for a day.

Go see pompeii/vesuvio while down near amalfi.
Ride the chair thing to the top of anacapri.

I am a RPG guy and I found Witcher 3 to be one of the better games of 2015 along with a host of others.

I was thinking Florence too. I have been Europe a few time and I speak fluent German so I am familiar with mostly Western European trains. Because of this I was conservative with time not knowing if there will be delays or slow downs because obviously the area is unfamiliar.

Pretty easy to get by just with English?
>>
>>1091291
1. In Rome, no. Amalfi is doable on foot, but it's pretty far away from everything.
2. All Italians like to bitch about them, and they're nowhere near German tidiness or puncuality, but they're alright. Keep in mind, though, that the train station closest to Amalfi is still 20kms away.
3. Rome has some bad areas, but they're far from the city centre. There will be rubbish on the streets and a lot of hawkers, but that's just part of Rome.
4. I'll leave that to people who were there...

Language depends on the country (Swahili for Kenya, Afrikaans for SA, etc.) English becomes less and less valuable the further into the bush you go. I hate to generalize Africa, since it's an enormous continent and what I'm about to say will vary immensely from location to location- but a sizable chunk of the continent is not as bad as most Americans will assume. There tends to be significantly more petty strife and small-scale fighting than developed nations, but I've traveled and lived here for almost 2 years now (Mozambique) and feel quite safe most of the...

Hey /trv/

I'm planning on going to the Florida Keys in a few months and wondering if anyone has some recommendations for a nature/beach bum vacation.

I'll probably be going for 5 days so I won't be there for long enough to go to all the keys but I can probably visit a couple. I can stay in a decent hotel for the entire time but I'd like to camp once or twice also.

I'm trying to do some hiking, take some nature photos and maybe get wasted and bone a chick back at the hotel a couple times.

Is there a specific area with a nice...

The Keys don't have many beaches desu. It's loaded with mangroves though. Key Largo is a nice area to visit, and is a great place to go diving/snorkeling. The coral reefs off the coast are a must see, and there are many charters that can take you out there.

The Everglades are more fun than people would think.

Key West is your typical tourist hotspot, but there you many find some beaches, bitches, as well as good food. There is a strong Cuban influence in the focal food scene. Great Mojitos btw....

Thanks that all sounds great.

Do you recommend renting a car or can I wander about either w public transport or on foot?

Key west seems like a good place to do some drinking and beach lounging though I'm usually not one for touristy places. I def want to get into some snorkeling too, it's too bad the two keys you mentioned are on completely opposite sides of the islands.

I can get free hotel stay at a Marriott or Hilton, need to check to see where I can make home base first, I suppose.
>>
>>1091175
Were you planning on flying into Key West or Miami? I'm sure of Key West having big name hotels like Marriott and Hilton. There are many inexpensive options as far as lodging goes.

You can get around on Key West via foot, but if you plan on doing more I would suggest a car. I recall there being beaches just south of Islamadora.

There are reefs all over the Keys, so I'm sure you can find a charter close to where you are staying. Key Largo is just one of the more popular areas to snorkel.

maybe not for people without a teaching degree. But I have had multiple friends leave Thailand for Malaysia. They actually teach other teachers. They get a good salary, housing, gas, cell phone, and I think food stipend each month too.

Thailand is great fun, but yeah the money sucks, especially when its 35THB/1USD. The high paying international schools are damn competitive since everyone wants to be there.
