I went to the town in Sweden where the first ikea was opened up and ate a meal there lol.. Honestly, I try mcdonald's in every country I go to and I consider myself a foodie. It's a good way of getting a taste for what the local everyday culture sort of eats (not true in a countries though)
I live in Charleston. I can tell you about some things to try and some things to avoid.
Things to avoid: Hymen's Seafood Restaurant. It's a tourist trap of the most foul levels. Avoid America street unless you like getting mugged.
Do your research and ask the locals, they are really friendly and willingly to point you towards whatever food you are in the mood for. I recommend Basil for Thai food, Poogan's Porch for southern cuisine, Edmond's Oast for craft beer and food ( they have a brewery in the restaraunt) , and the Tattooed Moose... Comment too long.

>>1069210 Plenty of options. Last time I checked, MetroPCS was about the cheapest, and they're famously flexible (no contracts). I don't actually use them (like many cellphone customers, I'm lazy and have stayed with my current company for many years just out of inertia), but my brother does and loves them. Dunno how good their coverage is in Chicago, but it's fine in other metro areas (I live in San Francisco and my brother lives in Boston, and his phone has been fine, and cheap, in both).
>>1069166 >Is it worth risking taking my Macbook with me to Istanbul, or should I just bring my iPad? Personally, despite occasional horror stories I've read, I think it's less a question of security than of convenience/luggage volume. Do you expect to need your computer? Then bring it. I've traveled with laptops to dozens of countries, including some much poorer and more theft-prone than Turkey, and have never had an incident. >This isn't really a Turkey-specific question, I'd be wary of any hotel where staff are in the room when I'm not. Again, this is not an entirely unwarranted fear, and I have read about people getting stuff stolen from hotel rooms, but it's never happened to me, and in business hotels I will often just leave my laptop just sitting out, plugged in, on the desk in the room. I figure most hotel employees would rather keep their jobs, so they're not going to steal. >Should any reputable hotel have like a safe locker or something? It's a Radisson Blu. Almost without question. Any international chain/business hotel/four star and up venue will probably have a little safe in the closet; places that don't may let you lock stuff up in a safe deposit box behind the reception (get an itemized receipt). Sometimes I will leave money and my passport in them.
I want to go to one of these cities with my girlfriend for a week in February but I'm having trouble choosing. We're on a rather tight budget and we'd stick to sleeping in a cheap hostel or airbnb room and mainly eating cheap stuff from supermarkets. We plan on eating out somewhere not too expensive a few times and getting coffee at cafes.

>>1069133 I am actually heading to Lisbon in february with my girlfriend. I chose that city, because it is well known that Lisbon is a beautiful city. A few years ago we have been in the south of Portugal and we did not regret it! Really nice coast! But I think tourist spots are always expensive.. in the west.
Hey, I arrive in Bratislava tomorrow and am wondering where else I should I travel in the country. I'll be in Bratislava for 4-5 days (I like to travel slowly) before heading east. Where would you guys recommend?
I was thinking maybe to choose 2 from Poprad, Kosice, Banska Bystrica or Banska Stiavnica but I'm open to other suggestions.
Where would be good at this time of year? I want somewhere cheap and fairly easy/accessible to travel to and around. Thanks!
While you're still in the Bratislava area I recommend checking out Vienna - it's only about 50km away.
If you like mountains then it doesn't get more comfy than the Poprad area. As far as Tatra Mountains go, they're cheaper and less crowded than the Polish side, though this time of the year I'd expect that snow may distrupt navigation at least partially. Still, if you don't wanna go hiking (which would require preparation), I definitely recommend checking it out if you like aquaparks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Check out the Northern areas around the Polish border with the Tatra mountains if you're into skiing or mild hiking (the serious hikes/climbs are currently closed afaik but it's still pretty nice there).
Don't have much time but will write a more detailed post later
What's up /trv/, I am planning a trip to Japan at some point in the future. During this trip, my hope is to bang several so-called "KHawaii" Japanese girls with the intent of knocking them up with my superior American seed. Really plow that Pearl Harbour Poon-Tang, if you catch my drift. So, I want to hear your best sex/ dating stories from while you were overseas. It doesn't have to be about an explicit encounter if you don't want. Stories taking place in Japan are the theme of this thread, but you can stories from anywhere.

You're definitely right about the Phillipines, Malaysia, even Thailand etc... all having the stereotype of being places where it's extremely easy to get pussy, but it's not hard in Japan, either. Japanese bitches love gaijin dick, especially the ones that speak English. I hear they love to get their nihongo nipples pulled.

Hi guys (I already correct my mistakes, it was the cellphone xD) I'm a Colombian man and this is the first time I post here, I have decided that I'm gonna try all I can to do what I want to do. I'm a student of INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS in Ibague - Colombia, and i'm in the search of a internship in a company located in USA or any other country abroad, that way I can finish my studies and get my degree. I I really need help, need contacts, phone numbers, emails etc. If you can help me it would be amazing. Thanks
Hey dude! Funny to read this here because im just about to relocate to ibague to teach english! Im arriving 23rd of this month and im trying to look for a room or an apartment to stay in for a year. Perhaps you know something?
-Walk through the casino/hotel when possible to reduce the time outside, as it gets rather warm (but then again, I'm basing it on March and Summer weather) -try catching some of the free shows (such as the fountains, the Sirens of Treasure Island, and Circus Circus) -do the buffets
I live in a small town in the US with no jobs. I have $500 to my name. I have no job experience, have never worked. I want to start traveling. Would it be possible? I figure I have nothing to lose. What are some places with good job prospects?
There is nothing more liberating than having nothing to lose. Of course you could lose your life so your statement isn't completely true. My advice is catch a greyhound bus to your nearest major city whether it's Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta or New York. Stay in a cheap hostel while you search for an apartment. Use the hostel to make connections for jobs or roommates. McDonalds will hire you if all else fails. $500 will buy you maybe 3 weeks. Good luck.
Amerikaner here. I'm thinking of getting my masters (philosophy) from a German-speaking university, since its much cheaper than getting one in the US. Its looking right now to be between Vienna or Berlin. I'm in to old shit, so I'm leaning more toward Vienna atm, but I've heard that Vienna nice for tourists but not for living. Any advice or thoughts on the subject? My German is ok, btw (B2-C1)
tl;dr should I spend two years in Vienna or Berlin.
Hi /trv/, looking for some advice from people who have used this website.
I'm getting itchy travel feet. Ideally I'd want to go somewhere to be immersed in the real culture of the country, so I'd want to be working and living with local residents for a couple of months, however money is fairly limited and I'd be going alone. I'm female too, so obviously I wouldn't go to certain parts of the world but I thought I should mention it because of possible safety concerns even in more modern countries.
I've done something similar once... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1068890 Your sister could get hit by a car walking down the street. Or hit by a falling meteor. Or murdered in the supermarket. Anywhere can be considered dangerous. If you live in fear, you'll end up wasting your life playing it safe and not doing anything at all. Maybe she has been doing research? It's not for you to decide.
Also, Central America is a pretty broad term. I'll assume you can't name a country their either, and seems stupidity runs in your family.
>>1068890 Does she speak any spanish? If she doesnt she will need to be very careful and shouldnt stray too far off the tourist trails, since shes alone. If she is outgoing (or good looking) she will probably meet people in hostels that will look out for her, women and men
Anyway, my sister felt the same way about me when i wanted to travel thru mexico. I didnt listen to her and we had a big fight about it.
I went anyway and it turned out to be the best trip of my life.
My spanish then was 4 years of high... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
