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?

Having a power adapter + plug adapters is mandatory, powerbank was a lifesaver for me so def a good choice there. Always pack a towel, trust me. Flip flops are highly recomended but i didnt have them for majority of my trip since i lost mine. Honestly i cant think of anything else that is essential..
I did enjoy having a cheap ~$10 bluetooth speaker with me. Playing music off my phone while biking around amsterdam or hiking in ireland with other travelers l just met made me the fucking man for having it, everyone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
How much do I need to travel around the world? If I save up £10 000, is that enough to live around the world for at least a year? I just turned 18. Before I start wage cuckery, I want to travel the world and get some life experience. I don't want memery either, I'd work on farms and shit but the £10 000 would just for me to get there and if I ever run into trouble and want to get out I'd be able to afford a ticket home. I have 2 years of college paid for but Idk if I should go. I don't really want to go because there's no point. I'm currently... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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 really doubt you'll be able to monetize any sort of computer skill you don't have yet in the next 18 months

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.
The plane tickets are bought, I have a visa/passport, and have yet to get immunizations. All that's left to find is stuff to do.
Has anyone been to Shanghai before and know of some fun stuff to do over this three-week stretch?
Alright lads. I'm off to fucking Norway in August next year. Give me some ideas to do while I'm there for three weeks. Sorta planned to hop in and out of coastal and inland towns and go back to Oslo at the end to get home. I've got like 5k AUD to spend. I don't want tours or group bullshit, I want some solo/another person adventures.
>>1188142 I won't be spending all that, thats just how much i'll have by that time at the rate I'm saving. I don't want to be a backpacker essentially, I wanna be in half decent places other than Hostels. But its good knowing my money won't be short.
Make sure you get yourself a Canadian national park pass if you are planning to visit Canada in 2017.
Right now they are free through a government site: http://www.commandesparcs-parksorders.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=53407&categoryId=216870&productId=524527&errorViewName=ProductDisplayErrorView&urlLangId=-1&langId=-1&top_category=216870&parent_category_rn=216870&storeId=22953
In america you can camp for free in most parks if you stay out of the improved campgrounds. Is this true in canada as well? I hope to drive my van up there this summer and cruise around enjoying the exchange rate.
I want to study abroad in an East Asian metropolis for the waifus and cyberpunk vibes. Only requirement is I must be able to take engineering classes in English and not it can't cost much more than US tuition at a state school (~7k USD/semester)
So far I've looked at Hong Kong, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur.
>>1188007 I thought Kuala Lumpur is already on the borderline of what would be considered "East Asian", so wouldn't Penang be even more so? I want neon lights and gook food, not hijabis and poor people.
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 just got a statefarm one because they're my bank and car insurance. Pretty great insurance and all, but I feel like I could be racking up miles. Any recommendations? I have 700+ credit rating and good credit history for a 25 year old.

I have the option of doing a stopover in Los Angeles next week (land on Thursday afternoon, leave on Saturday afternoon), but I am not sure if so little time is actually worth it. But then on the other hand, I'd like to complete San Andreas, and Los Santos is the only city I'm still missing. What I am especially worried, is getting around, since that city is fuckin huge, but seemingly has the public transport infrastructure of a small european village. also, I am not too sure about what I'd even do there, apart from wandering around to see a bit of hollywood...

People say LA doesn't have a public transportation infrastructure because it's more bus-based than subway based and New Yorkers hate taking the bus. Don't fall for the meme.
It would be pretty difficult to do all of what you mentioned in a day, at least because of the sheer transportation times. I would limit it to the west side - maybe start at Walk of Fame and move to Rodeo Drive. Knock out MOCA and CSS, you can do Getty Center and Venice beach or instead just Getty Villa (my personal favorite LA museum). and a Malibu beach, which I won't help you... Comment too long.

Hey /trv/, my family is going on a trip to NYC, and my gf purchased a ticket for the same day but a different flight. Is there any way to try and see if someone from my flight wants to switch with my gf's ticket? Different carrier, only an hour apart. Is there some sort of ticket swapping community that I can hit up?
>>1187412 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1187290 >No snow guaranteed? Right now there isn't any snow. We got a lot of snow in november but it has all melted already. There's probably gonna be snow by christmas but it's hard to tell. We haven't really had proper winters in the last few years.
I'm Canadian and have only been in 2 Canadian provinces, 2 states in the US, and Cuba. I haven't travelled much. I'm thinking of travelling to Japan, and then if I travel again I imagine checking out Europe.
so I've decided to save up some money then quit my job and live in my car until I'm down to my last $1000. I'm tired of living like I have been. waking up day after day to go to work and coming home tired and unmotivated. I want to find something that makes life worth living, get out of my comfort zone, meet people, and I don't know what else. what would you guys do if you had time off from work? travel, I'm assuming. where to? what else?
>>1187047 How much money do you have saved up? This isnt a terribly smart idea but its your decision to make, not ours. There are plenty of places you could live very comfortably for a fraction of what youre used to. You could stretch out that money just as far in much of southeast asia with a comfortable place to stay as you could living in your car stateside, assuming youre American.
>>1187048 Donate Plasma and volunteer for clinical drug studies at Quintiles.
Make bank and chill for the rest of your life playing vidya and traveling. The experiments are not as scary as they sound, just make sure you ask questions first. They are required to tell you everything by law, but that doesn't mean they volunteer the information if it isn't requested. This is how I paid for my private pilot's license.
>>1186930 If by "is it still a thing" you mean does it still exist, yes. The communities are very secretive and speak in code. I found one as a proof of concept as recent as about 2 months ago but it was on a route I didnt have any desire to fly. I have never flown on a fuel dump actually, but they are still out there.
>>1186835 Bachelors degree minimum. Usually 2-5 years experience at home working in industry. No criminal record obv The tax free loophole that made Dubai so profitable to work as a foreigner has now been closed.
I've never booked a trip on a whim before, but less than two hours ago I'd never even considered going to Senegal; now I have my tickets booked for April. Only for 12 days. What do? Apparently I'll be there for the dry season. That's good for hiking and wildlife spotting, right? My interests: -Local music (any good venues in Dakar?) -Nature (where are some good hikes?) -Food (tell me everything you know about food)

One a day, start a few days before the trip, take until a week after the trip. Lightest sides of any antimalarial, but may lead to light sensitivity and sunburns. I didn't have any sides at all.

>>1186761 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 >legal weed & prostitutes
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?
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1185903 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
>>1186004 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.
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.
