So basically in december i want to travel to Englang first to london from where i live, then i wan't to go visit a friend down in PLYMOUTH and i'm not sure what would be the best way to get down there because i'm a little nervous cus it's my first time traveling alone.
>>1170076 Bulgaria fits the bill. Like the other anon says, $500 is a decent budget there. $1500 will get you a great life. Of course, that's liable to change as more and more long-distance workers and outsourced companies seem to discover that particular part of the world.
I want to go to South East Asia for the first time in February (a little over two weeks) but I'm not sure which country I should visit.
Originally, I was planning on going to the Philippines but I'm not quite sure about that with the political situation over there. Plus, since there is no direct flight there from my country, I would have to do a layover somewhere and then another one if I want to get to Palawan.
My other thought was Thailand as it seems to be the most easy-mode country and there are direct flights there but I heard it's a bit overrated... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1170033 >I would have to do a layover somewhere and then another one if I want to get to Palawan. FYI domestic flights in Philippines are like 50 usd max. Where else did you want to go there besides Palawan?
>>1171655 These days vans are seen more as pedomobiles than something that a cool young man drives. However I'm sure you could still travel around in a van/motorhome if you wanted, in fact there is a guy who occasionally makes threads here about how he does that.
>>1171655 There are loads of folks tricking out vans, campers, trailers and school busses. These hipster fucks are traveling the country in this converted bus that looks like a west elm catalog, just in case you didn't have enough shit to envy for your house you can now live the minimal chic life on the road as well.
>>1171567 I actually had the chance to climb it a few years ago on a school trip. We were dropped off at it and given an hour to do what we want and I assumed we'd come back and climb it as a group. Never happened. Still mad with myself

>>1171382 So she got cold feet or a last minute change of heart, big deal. If you're struggling to meet people book a bed at a decent hostel. There is at least a few days worth of sightseeing just in paris, if you find yourself running out of places after a few days you could always take a short trip to somewhere outside the city.
I live in Houston. I have only spent a little time in Jacksonville. The climate is going to be very similar, in fact the cities are going to be about the same. I like Texas because of the gun laws and attitude of the people here. I have not researched it recently, but property in Texas was much more affordable compared to Florida.
You'll be just fine in Montreal without any French skills. People there are pretty social so it's fairly easy to meet people just walking around/in bars. The food is great, and there are plenty of cool neighborhoods to visit.
Protips: Be in the frequent cruiser club and enjoy 1-2 predrinking drinks per night at the captains cocktail party/other event for members only. Get utterly wasted in the ports. Enjoy one bottle of duty free your last night on the ship.
I suggest figuring out how to drink less, really. If that's the whole center of your vacation, you probably should suck up the cost, or not cruise.
I'm 18 and going on my first holiday alone this year, thinking of going to Japan. 22nd of December-2nd of January. Since I'm spending so long, I don't want to just stay in Tokyo. Where else in Japan would you guys recommend? I'm interested in everything from the culture, nature and parties. Should I book hostels in advance? Any other tips on visiting would be great too
>>1170004 >I'm 18 and going on my first holiday alone this year
Japan might be a big step for going alone especially when you are 18 man. If you really are going make sure your phone has enough mobile data as google maps will tell you how to get to places and which trains to take.

Visit Kyoto and book a hotel there, from kyoto you can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Any restaurant at a big plaza or square which has a flags thing going on. Worse if the menu is translated in more than 2 languages and has flag pictograms on it, covered in some shitty cellofane wrapping which looks like it has last been replaced a decade ago. Chicken & fries as the first thing on the menu obviously, desaturated picture of the actual dish is mandatory.
I've been lurking here for quite a while, dreaming of sweet places while I was sitting here in my meh-tier ol' city in east-southern France.
Well lads, I finally moved to my fiancée's place in Lozère. This French department is god-tier for nature lovers; it has beautiful valleys, rivers and mountains everywhere, and aside from the city of Mende (which is a pretty comfy location), there's practically nothing except small villages with a warm atmosphere. The people are exceptionally nice compared to the average French once... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Bosa, Sardinia. The first day I ever saw the Mediterranean, I ended up in Bosa. It was raining torrents but the sun was still shining. It was a picture-book image of Italy. I watched the sun set from the castle and camped that night in a patch of sweet fennel.
Ok. So we are travelling around Europe in a group of three and we are soon running out of cash. We are in Croatia(Krk specifically) right now and we are kind of grasping for straws here, but is there any chance any of you guys know a guy who knows a guy or simply have some suggestions on how to get some money here for English speaking travelers that doesn't involve sucking dick or selling our body parts?
>>1168998 I would probably go to New Orleans, because I've never been. I would look at old stuff, eat, see some kind of live music, and probably do some public drinking just because I could. If a week seemed too long, I'd probably tack on some kind of swampy/bayou side trip. Savannah, GA might be another contender, although it doesn't have the same food or nightlife reputation.
I've traveled quite extensively in the Northeast, Midwest, and West, and although I lived in North Carolina for a few years... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1169007 I would either go to Utah to see the Rocky Mountains, the canyons, the Great Salt Lake, the forests and national parks etc.
Or go to Louisiana because the French presence there intrigue me. My first language is French and I'd really love to meet French Cajuns just to talk with them and see how they live their lives in French. I would also really love to visit New Orleans for its food and its music , and visit the surrounding swamps as well.
Train hopping seems cool enough for the experience, but 90% of the people who do it are absolute scum and that alone fucks me off to the idea.
Honestly if a bunch of sketchy homeless runaway able bodied beggar hipsters to decide you're cool enough (i.e. if you buy them beer), they'll probably bring you along for a ride, and I guess it's cool the first time but you won't want to do it again. You move at like 25mph and it's windy, rain sucks. If the weather's good, it's sort of relaxing but not a practical way to get around.

I am taking my wife to Thailand. This will be her first long haul international flight. She will be flying back by herself, as I will remain in Thailand for about 2 weeks beyond her. Is it a satisfactory airline, will she have any issues, esepcially as a first time non-direct flight flyng back, ike crazy dealys that would cause her to miss a flight leg? Should I stick to something like Delta/Skyteam? I am close to a Delta hub so sky team is the cheapest big name carries but cost about $500 more.
If it was me, I'd just go for the lowest price. It's her birthday, as well.
>>1167152 If you care about your spouse's comfort level with foreign travel, I'd stick to at least an American flagship carrier. The staff will be english speaking and care about customer service for all patrons, male and female alike. She'll have the best treatment overall. Will there be any layovers between Thailand and home? You can also take care of a pass to the delta lounge if that's a concern for $50 or so with your credit card. If you think you can take your $500 and get her into business on the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been living in New York City all my life. The ennui is hitting hard. I want to live in another US city for at least a few years while I'm still young and not tied down. I'm a software engineer and my girlfriend's a nurse so our options are pretty flexible. Currently considering Boston and LA. Any other cities I should consider? What are the pros/cons?
Well it's exactly what it sounds like; 5 days of conferences, events and parties in pretty much every music related venue in Amsterdam. I personally wouldn't do all 5 days just for the sake of it, just pick the ones you'd actually like to attend. During the day there are lots of free talks/workshops/exhibitions, don't forget to check that out. Also keep in mind that friday and saturday night will be busy as fuck and you might already be too late to buy tickets for some events. I'd personally skip these since the crowd is more fun and laid back during... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1163875 Thanks for the info. Is it like most concerts/events that when they release the tickets some dude comes up and buy 100 of them and then stands outside of the club selling them for twice the price? Alot is already sold out
So how does teaching English abroad actually work?
What's it like? The average day? Do you shout at foreign kids for a few hours a week then go spend your money, or do you actually have to do some seirous back breaking work that reuqires marking and stress etc?
How easy is it to get work on the side in places like Asia? Would I need to lug my degree certificate around with me or just bring a copy?
What happens when you go back home? Are you fucked with regards toe employment/ pensions/savings etc?
I'd love to do it, I'm 22, graduated... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I actually am in the process of getting my invitation to China. Seems easy enough. I think you could make better money if you were American. Also, if you want to save more money go to a third tier city. Places like Shanghai and Bejing are way more expensive in every aspect.
I have a related question and don't want to make my own post. Going to Thailand in a couple of months. Wife has been reading the Lonely Planet Thailand book on Kindle. Is that a reliable, up to date, resource? Or old, dated, inaccurate info?
>>1156505 bangkok is pretty cool. there's a actually a lot more cultural wealth in bangkok and thailand in general than you might think.
the thai are basically a southern minority chinese tribe that was driven out of china in waves for a few hundred years. the thais invaded modern thailand and displaced the khmer people into vietnam, cambodia, etc.
a lot of what you see is actually pretty new. the unity that came from the fact that thailand was a diaspora created a bit of a cultural renaissance in the area... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
