Newfag here, looking for travel tip.

I'd like to pend some time in New York to visit my family, but I live in the Southwestern side of Florida, along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. I'm looking for relatively inexpensive ways to go to New York. Preferably bus.

Hey guys, so I'm from middle europe but I don't want to stay here forever. I have a vitamin d deficiency and the winters are just to long for me so I may want to leave this cold place after completing my studies. I'm getting a bachelor's (=undergratuate) dregee in Corporate Communication.

So until I find a place to stay, do you think I could earn enough money through the internet to fund my travels (mosly southeast asia)?
i.e. be a freelance copywriter or something similar?
Has anyone here done this before?

I plan to go to japan and work there for a few months. I'm doing this because I grew up on anime. I've spent all my teen years escaping into slice of life anime and now that I'm out of highschool I kinda miss it. No I'm not a weeb, but fuck I miss it. I'm 18 therefore can't go to highschool :(. So I was thinking of teaching english there. I'll save up £10 000 in the mean time. I have no job.

Can you guys give me step by step guide?

10,000 quid for one year? It's doable with a little budgeting and a lot of wwoofing. I don't think you'd even need to work unless you want a buffer for when you return home.
Say you visit 12 countries in 12 months, average price of a one-way ticket these days is ~£300-£400, that leaves you around £500/month to live on. Easy enough in countries like Thailand and Morocco, but an obstacle for countries like NZ and Aus which won't allow you in unless you can prove you have enough to stay off the streets.
>>
you can get work visas in canada, australia, new zealand

you're a lot better off getting actual jobs in these countries than just woofing, traveling between countries costs money, and to get work visas you have to show proof of funds that you can go back instead of get deported

if you get a tefl you can get accommodation by volunteering at a language school in some countries

I will be in Shanghai for 3 weeks this winter to practice the language and learn about the culture, and plan to stay in hostels. I am currently about HSK 4/5 or so and can converse somewhat and read many characters.

Has anyone been to Shanghai before and know of some fun stuff to do over this three-week stretch?

for canada's 150 anniversary there's a collector free parks pass

it's kind of misleading, parks are usually cheap ($5) or free to enter, but then parking and tent fees cost more

you don't need the pass ether, the fees are waived because it's 2017

I find it odd how many people come to Canada to see the stupid cities that other than 3-4 aren't any different than any other ones, and not see any nature but on the plane

Are you basing yourself in Christchurch while you are boarding? I would recommend Mt Hutt Skifield as it is within driving distance of the city (a couple of hours each way)
Make sure you visit lake tekapo in winter, it is a dark sky reserve so the stars are fantastic.Check out the west coast of the island, lots of native bush and awesome views, see the glaciers in franz josef, and the Nelson/Malborough region is beautiful as well. let me know if you have any more questions!

I would recommend either heading down through the high country in the centre of the island to Queenstown and back up the west coast, or vice versa. The Canterbury plains and the coastal road south to Dunedin are fairly boring, just a lot of farmland and small towns.

I'm reading up on the Gold Delta Skymiles card. 30,000 bonus miles if you spend at least $1,000 within the first three months sounds too good to be true for a free first year and $95 annual fee after.

Neat idea, but hard to accomplish. Almost all airline tickets are non-transferable, which means explicitly that you can't give them to someone else. Really expensive fares, the fully refundable kind, might be more flexible on that front (never tried to transfer one, but know from experience that they're easy and cheap to rebook), but I feel confident in guessing you didn't buy fully refundable tickets.

And for security and other purposes, the airlines expect the people sitting in their planes...

the best time imo is like late spring/early summer, from april to july basically, not dutch but been there a lot and it seems like de wallen is the only option for postitution.
also your interests? i used to love the other dutch cities around (each of them actually) but i guess they would seem boring to you if comparing to amsterdam

I decided to make an Ecuador thread since I haven't seen one yet and would like to discuss it.

I went there in 2014 for about a week and loved it. I stayed in Guayaquil, Cuenca, and Montanita, and I saw the countryside as well.

Some observations:

The cities look pretty developed in my opinion, especially Cuenca. Cuenca doesn't even seem like a "third world" city to me.

Everywhere I want was pretty clean.

The countryside looks pretty impoverished, by Guayaquil at least. Lots of tin roof shacks, many of them poorly built....

That's pretty cool op. Did you like the mountains more than the coast? I would love to go there and Colombia. How doable is it to tour around by bus/rented car? What are the costs like for food/lodging/entertainment?

You forgot to talk abour the most important /trv/ topic;
Can you get laid easily in Ecuador :^)

Can't speak for renting a car but getting through both countries via bus is incredibly easy and pretty cheap. Every once in a while it's nice to splurge on a comfy sleeper though.

Both countries are also fairly inexpensive with Medellin and Cartagena being some exceptions but still not outrageous by any means. I can't recall every spending more than $10 per night for a bed in a hostel, eating like a local can be as cheap as $3 a meal, and domestic beers are usually $2 - 4 a bottle.

How do I get a somewhat short term job in pic related that isn't teaching?

Don't mention the UN. That's a rabbithole that goes nowhere. I'm trying to find non-profit jobs or jobs with security firms but so many need an advanced degree. No way I can get into a good graduate school because I fell for the "college grades aren't important" meme and have 2.7 GPA.

Africa has a lack of jobs as it is and thus basically all of the lower kind of unskilled work is taken up by locals.

If you were in the military or had special skills you could maybe get a job in the security industry, but you would need to be pretty damn skilled as local workers are much cheaper to pay than some westerner, also a lot less to pay to the family if your wounded/killed.

You best chance is to maybe go with one of those volunteer companies that are everywhere online, although its mainly...

Few questions, feel free to answer the ones you know. Thanks in advance.

Anyone flown Icelandair before? Any hidden things I should know about that is not immediately obvious? (e.g. charging for carryon)

Any estimates on how much per day the following cities would cost? (Hostels, non-fancy restaurants):
Reykjavik
Milan
Florence
Rome

While in Italy, staying north of Rome, is there any city/area (excluding Venice) that is worth adding a stop at?
I'm considering Portofino/Cinque Terre or Pisa, but I'm open to others. Already been to...

Pisa and Lucca made a good day trip by rail from Florence when I visited ten years ago or so. I hear good things about Sienna, but I haven't been there.

Icelandair has delicious water and the leather seats feel a little plus for coach...ki dnof the early jet blue quality of comfort on the business commuter flights. No complaints whatsoever ans in fact the plane's have been retrofitted beyond manufacturer specs to safer in cold. The crews are schooled engineering types not just Pilots.
Any low faresbis govt tourism support in hopes you use them and layover

So Pisa can be done in a day without missing much you think? I may just make my stop in Cinque Terre then and do Pisa on my way to Florence.

>>1186050
yea if my Iceland segment had been able to fit into 7 nights, it would have been $480 round trip from the US to Europe using the IcelandAir Stopover thing. I have to be there for 11 days though, so I can't take advantage of it.
Thanks for the info.

Don't have a pic, but I have a story.

Stopped for breakfast in WV small town. Walk into diner past open bible on a podium at the door. About ten locals sitting there go quiet and stare with that "stranger coming" look. One asks, "Where are you from?"
"Brooklyn," I respond.
"What are you doing in the heart of West Virginia?"
"Driving to New Orleans" The seem impressed.
Another local pipes up, "I know a lot of people from Brooklyn."
"Around...

The folks were nice, but there was really nothing going on there, and the food wasn't good. When the locals went back to talking among themselves the conversation seemed to be mostly about who had cancer and who had just died of cancer. Not really all that comfy.
