The most important part is the mindset of wanting to get up and go, so you have that sorted at least. Next for the details. Well where are you from? Age/sex? How long are you looking to go away for? Just a long vacation or permananetly?

Okay are you employed at the moment? If so what do you do? Have any savings? What education do you have? Whats important to you in a place where you move? What about yourself, what are your hobbies and interests? Do you want to stay in the US or move to another country? I'm asking so many questions cause your first post was quite vague. I'm guessing from your first post that you haven't travelled much?

I feel you in any case bro, I am about to graduate and I am going to move abroad afterward but...

I have 36 hours in the Chicago Loop at the Palmer House (late night Fri-Sun morn), layover really. I've been to the city many times, however, never really downtown, always suburbs for business and not in about 8 years. Impromptu trip...and ironically just got done reading Devil in the White City.
I just figured out the St. Patricks Parade and river dyeing will happen this Saturday. Any tips on the parade without a chair? Short? Must See? Skippable? Has anyone attended the whole days events? Any tips for navigating the Art Institute with limited time? Any safety concerns...

Hiking? /out/. Bring more water than you think, either sneaks or boots depending on terrain, bring food. Make sure the boots are pre-broken in. An extra pair of socks never hurts.
>>
>>1089327
Where do you live? Pretty much every continent has a great location to do some hiking. I suggest starting locally (in your country if you can or a nearby one).

Don't invest a lot into gear until you're really into it, there's a lot of douches who wear $1000 outdoorsy jackets in my city who have never been outside of the city proper. I do recommend getting a good pair of hiking shoes or boots (depending where you want to go hiking). You can get those for $100.

Just take nice pictures of cool and pretty places around the world, be a girl and get a gorillion likes on facey-b. That's a career.

It's really not viable, mate. Unless you're one top-top tier author, you're just going to have to face it.
Here are some points to consider:

1. Find a niche and start a Kickstarter/Indie Gogo
Like documenting X obscure activity around the world and some people might throw money at you. But this requires to be expert on at least 2 subjects (writing+niche)

2. Being a "digital nomad" and working a freelance writer job while living in cheap countries

There's a thread about this right now, check it.

>>1089241

If you're a decent writer, you can probably sustain yourself in the cheaper parts of the world doing freelance work.

hi /trv/

ITT: show off your bags

tempted to buy a new everyday backpack, to start with. namely the fjällräven kånken, but I haven't settled on which variety to get.

my other bags include:
* a targus laptop backpack I never cared much for and which the kånken would replace
* two no-brand questionable-quality travelling bags (one ~50L for hand-luggage and a considerably larger 100+ litre one I use for roadtrips and checked-in luggage)
* the Lowepro NOVA 160 AW I've come to realise was never very ideal for me
* the Jack Wolfskin ACS...

Oh my friend. Bakan diaspora. Well fast, the best way is to snoop around YouTube for lessons. Find a complete series and go by the title, it will describe what is covered. After that surround yourself with media in the language you want to learn. Movies, music and something that's written down.

People who live in the UK or have travelled around it: What are some good cities in the UK to work in as a waiter? I've tried Leeds for a week but I didn't like the city and couldn't find anything full time and I decided to switch cities. Could I get some recommendations?

brighton is a nice city, their entire economy is service based so there should be a good job market

Could try Liverpool? It's much nicer than Leeds, which I dislike too, and every other business opening is a hotel or restaurant. Plenty of signs in windows for waiting staff etc. I like the vibe but I live here and don't know your likes etc.

Manchester too? Like Liverpool in terms of amount of service businesses but bigger. It's like Leeds in some ways too, but far prettier and interesting.

Then there is London, it speaks for itself.

I use https://www.hipmunk.com/ which checks pretty much every website out there.

If you're dates/locations are flexible, http://www.skyscanner.com/ is great because it allows you to pick a US --> Eu and it will tell you the cheapest cities.

Cheapoair.com is also nice because it gives you the price when you're looking at the calendar to pick the date, so you can see which days are cheapest.

Errrgghh. It'd be tight. Not impossible, but, luck would have to be on your side. If everything ran exactly on time, you had all your papers ready to go, and you RAN, you'd probably make it. Wouldn't reccomend it, though. Especially if you're near the back of the plane and have to wait around in customs.

Good luck. You'll need it.

It's an EU flight so I won't have customs. Depends on the luggage if I have any, gonna be a small plane Canada Regionaljet 900, so does that mean that the luggage will get off the plane faster than if it was a 737 or something.

Anyhow, anybody that's used the Helsinki Airport Train Station would be useful, because when I used it arriving. It must have taken at least 15 minutes from leaving the plane, to arriving at the terminal front. But I hear they have a new entrance direct from the terminal?...

using this thread to ask a quick question relevant to passing of time. I'm going to go on a 7-8 hour road trip alone up California (LA->Chico) and I'm wondering what the best method of doing this is.
Should I be making stops every 2 hours? Should I get an audio book or make a playlist of music?

driving so long alone will be my first time and seems really daunting. I'm nervous of getting half way and realizing how long this drive is taking and getting uncomfortable

How hard is it for an international student to get in a French university? I've applied this year for the next fall, I got a DELF B2 and good grades. I'm not talking about Grandes Écoles, just normal French universities. From what I know it's really easy to get in if you have a decent French level, but I recently got a full scholarship from a top-tier university here in my home country. I'm getting an answer from the French university next month, what would it be?

anyone ever get approved for a Private/Homestay visa to Russia before?

I'm an unemployed US citizen with about $3,000 to my name. I got an official invitation to Russia for a 3 year multi entry personal visa for free, but Im not sure if they'll actually approve it.

I don't really have strong ties to my home, nor do I have a lot of money. I figure they'll accuse me of attempting illegal immigration or something, but then again who actually moves to Russia?
