>>1074480 Whats your plan there op? Rent a car and drive around? Use the ferry? take flights? use the long distance buses? Any plans for the 3 weeks beside BsAs and probably MVD like going to Iguazu or Bariloche? 3 weeks are pretty long for 1 and a half city.
>>1074480 i would recomen walking 8 hours a day with 2 hours of pause, sit down and rest in a bar; the drinks are cheap; also dont go out with a huge bypack , you look ridicoulos adn very easy to rob. avoid the donw and souther districts; too much crime. walk around every where,the same block or just a srting of blocks. all the houses and buildings in buenos aires are differetn from one another in architectural style
I lived in Medoza (near the Chilean border) for 6 months and I had the chance to make a 1 week trip in BB.AA. As said above, 3 weeks are quite long for a city, even for a big one as Buenos Aires so you'd better consider going to other places during your stay. I'd be you I'll stay few days after my arrival in Buenos Aires and then head up to Iguazu because it is something worth to see according to every people I met who's been there (I did not). I heard Bariloche is a nice place for siteseeing but it's apart from Argentinia in the way that there are a lot of tourists and rich people over there. Personally, I'd rather go to Patagonia or visit cities such as Salta and Cordoba before going to Bariloche. If you're rich eough you could do a trip BB.AA-Cordoba-Salta-Mendoza-Bariloche-BB.AA. You might even have time for one more stop-over in Chile for example, or in the south of Argentina.
Argentinians mainly use long distance buses since they don't have trains over there. Buses are cheap and confortable, the only "problem" is the lengh of the trip but as you're there for 3 weeks that should be okay. If I remember well it took me 12 hours to travel to BB.AA and 12 hours to come back to Mendoza.
I totally agree with >>1075250 regarding the precautions for not being targeted as a tourist. I remember going to the Bombonera in the district of La Boca...if you walk few streets away from the most frequented area you quickly enter "dangerous" places where the atmosphere is a bit gloomy: There, you can be easily spotted. That is the reason why people offered them to guide me to the bus stop on my way back because it was getting dark. North of the city tends to be safer, plus it is nice: there are places and local markets. Don't miss Argentinian meats and ice creams, taste their wine as well!!! Would definitelly go there again!
Going out there to decide if im going to move there, or wichita KS.
Anyone visited or lived in the city or area?
Want to get the best impression i can from the city while i visit, what are things to do? And i would like to try to meet new people to hang out and smoke with... im guessing at the bar? Are people open to outsiders there?
And is it really as bad as everyone makes it seem?
Should i be afraid to walk around at night by my self?
never been to wichita but i have been to chi abot 5 times. Chicago has an awesome down town you can spend days within the loop area, miracle mile, river front/navy peir (u will prob freeze) All types of stuff to do in downtonw area.
I like to visit the neighborhoods try taking the public transit to wicker park its an awesome neighborhood cool bars and stuff to do all day, prob a good chance of finding people to smoke with or a hook up. Check out the Revolution Brewery they also have a tap house/resturant but i liked all rev brewery beers.
Hi /trv/ going to india in march/april, and looking for some advice, i plan to start from goa, and end up in delhi, possilby going through the following places (mumbai, ahmedabad, udaipur, pushkar, tordi sagar, jaipur, agra) I have a budget of about 40,000 rupees (excluding flight fees) for about a months worth of travelling, just any general advice on places to go, best way to get around etc would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
>>1074137 The Delhi Belly meme is really exaggerated. Don't eat off the street if it wasn't cooked right before your eyes, and don't eat at really dingy looking restaurants. Guts need time to acclimatize it's true, but having some fucking standards of hygiene goes a long way.
Anyway, I'd not visit more than one city in Rajasthan/Gujarat. They're all the same ... desert scrub scenery, camels, skinny Indians with turbans.

I'm looking at maybe becoming a language assistant in Spain with the British Council at some point in the next few years, one of those jobs where you get like 800 euros or so for 12 hours a week work.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it fairly easy to get onto? I'm self taught and don't have any Spanish qualifications, will this hold me back? I'm okay at the language, will be a year or two before I apply anyway so I have time to improve.
It looks like a lot of fun and I've got some money saved up so if anyone has... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Cancun... aka Mancun during springbreak. There's 2-3 man for each female and guys hit on girls 24/7. Don't go there thinking you're gonna swim in pussy 24/7, just go there and get shitfaced for a whole week
>Got ass? >She got no ass If you can't get laid where you are now you won't get laid there. >>1074517 >just go there and get shitfaced for a whole week Yea this is good advice. If you get laid it's a bonus.
>>1073986 I have a masters and have seen plenty of job offers for managerial positions for recent graduates. Also I'm an american citizen, I just wasn't born there and have never lived there. So it isn't going to be that difficult, I already live outside of the country I grew up in.
>>1073957 French southerner reporting in. I'll assume you have a car or will use our efficent, when not on strike railway, so i'll pick locations from all over the south.
-High mountains: The Pyrenees are pretty amazing but I know the Alps better. The nationals parks of the Écrins and of the Vanoise (pic related) are beautiful. The Aiguille du Midi is pretty cool, with its James Bond villain like base at the top. -Lower mountains: The pre-Alps, a.k.a the Vercors mostly is rocky... Comment too long.

Recently CS has made many changes that I think are for the worse. For starters is the recent update to the reference system, which took away the old system of Positive, Neutral and Negative. Under the old system References were clear, straightforward, organized into what I consider an almost universally understandable language, i.e. Green means go, good, positive and everything is alright, Grey means neutral, Red means STOP, Attention, warning, caution and negative. I think we can all agree that pretty much anyone could understand that. So why remove that? Not only was it intuitive,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073941 Well if you use CS it's a pretty big deal. The changes they made basically made it, so no one can leave negative feedback anymore, so basically now the only way you can tell if someone had a bad experience is to read every single reference they have.
Gf and I won a cruise. Cruise goes from barcelona, cartegena, gibraltr, genoa, florence, rome. Get 1 day in each. We have to pay for "excursions", we are not sure what to do in each city or if we should just go it alone and not be part of a tour group. We don't have any experience with cruises. Its this july, the height of EU tourist season I assume... Are the excursions worth it? Any other cruise tips?
I've found it possible to book "excursions" based on what I want to see and do, rather than on what the ship thinks many people will want to see and do, online a few weeks ut, rather than go through the ship's purser, notably cheaper. Sometimes I have discovered it is the same tour, they pick up the group on the ship that paid too much, then pick me up a block or two away.
And, of course, doing your research and just doing your own thing in port is fine.
The sole real advantage of booking through the ship is that they guarantee to get you back... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Have a week off in October lads and I wouldn't mind getting away for a bit. Is there any point in even trying to visit more than one or two cities? Any highly concentrated areas in Europe where there is plenty to see in such a short time? I'm thinking maybe Netherlands or Germany
>>1073895 If you stay in The Netherlands or Belgium, you can easily go to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Brugge, Ghent, Antwerp or Brussels. They're all well-connected by public transport and the distances are quite short. So take your pick. You could even do a city a day, but then you'd definitely miss a lot.
An alternative would be seeing Vienna and Bratislava or maybe Vienna and Budapest.
Ljubljana and Zagreb is also an option.
Munich and Salzberg can be done as well.
That's all... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073923 Sounds good. I'm not really tempted by Belgium 2bh, leaning more towards Central Europe. What's the party scene like in Vienna? I like the sound of Bratislava and Budapest but I don't know much about Vienna. I do know it's a beautiful city though so it will certainly be on the shortlist. Would Prague-Vienna-Bratislava sound like a viable trip? Or Vienna-Bratislava-Budapest? I also like the sound of Krakow.
>>1073939 I wouldn't discard Belgium. Brugge, Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp are very nice and Belgium quite simply has the best beer in the world.
I've only been to Vienna by day, so I don't know the party scene. I was staying in Bratislava and from there Vienna is just an hou by train. So we took a day trip. Bratislava does have a nice party scene, and Budapest an even better one. Cheap as well.
I spent some time in Krakow last summer. Great place!
I plan on spending some time enjoying the argentine country side and getting a better grip on spanish in general (which I have a rudimentary understanding of from 4 years in high school) I'm still trying to decide a price point outside of plane tickets and basic daily expenses for food, shelter etc. I'm already getting travel insurance to help make me more eligigble to work on a farm and I'm leaving in july which I think may be a less popular time of year for WWOOF so I can get a better pick of farms. Outside of this I plan to spend a month and was wondering if... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
