>>1067902 It completely depends where you travel to. I would say about half the places I've visited are as you described, and they are all places with a significantly lower cost of living/travel and are often considered "third world." Travel to more developed places, and you see less of this shit. It's usually more expensive but not always.
First, it depends on your nationality. I'm from EU so I don't really need any of these because of Schengen. If you're from abroad, then the first step is to check your embassy's website, they might have tips for expats. Enjoy, Prague is a wonder !
I have about $4000 CAD. I would be leaving from Toronto. I just want to get away from it all. Someplace warmish but I want to avoid like parasites, infected stuff, basically I don't wanna come home and deal with illness or in extreme case be dead. Somewhere safe and politically stable.
Trying to get the most amount of days away. Umm beach, resort? Hotel? Sights to see? I'm not sure. I just want to relax and enjoy before I have to start university in the fall.
Canadian Male, 18, of South Asian descent. In case that helps with areas and how friendly they are known to be.
Sorry, but last post I will make until replies. I also have a name of middle eastern origin even though I don't identify with it. I don't really wanna go someplace filled with Donald Trump minded people ruining my vacation and filling it with negativity.
>It's only a week until your big trip, anon! Why aren't you more excited? Because it's going to be a clusterfuck and an expensive yet weak distraction from the fundamental problems in my life which cause me to insulate myself from reality ...sorry, I mean: Oh, I guess I haven't really thought about it much! It should be pretty fun!
I started this thread on the wrong board, so hopefully I have been redirected to the proper place for this post. So here is a copypasta of the OP.
Now, without going too off topic, allow me to explain what I want, know, and wish to know. And there will be a tl;dr I promise. Currently I am a 25 y/o War vet who was discharged from the military for marijuana use/Medically Disabled (went through a lot of dark periods after deployment). I have bad credit, no job (worth mentioning), and no land. Most of my close family is either deceased or out of state. I have no kids, pets,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I chose it because I think I would enjoy the work ethic, group mentality, structure, and culture (always been a electronic/video game addict. Techy devices and such that may just be a waste of money are my favorite things to discover. I enjoy the compact living spaces and subsequently shorter travel distances to get to anything. i enjoy the idea of city lights, lighted streets and sidewalks to navigate at 3am when I need something late. On top of that, I feel safer in their economy than I do here (leave this one be, it's not a political debate). I want to do it, I want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>I think I would enjoy the work ethic, group mentality, structure HAHAHA no you won't. there's nothing to enjoy in there. the work culture is about refusing any change, follow along the way things are, a lot of peer pressure, and overtime. Most Japanese are actually very bad at technology, it's baffling. I know many who first saw a computer upon entering university. Japanese economy is crumbling, but the US's too so heh, it might be safer there, okay.
You think a lot about yourself though, but I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1067848 I was in the military. The work ethic is right up my alley. I enjoy the structure and responsibility attached to it. And I'm more interested in finding stupid gimmicky devices for myself in relation to tech. And I fail to see what you mean that I think a lot of myself. As in I talk more than I walk? The amount of effort and work I put into my military career, and to get through combat, is evidence I am capable of more and better. However, I need to remain humble, especially asking to be at the mercy of another... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I wouldn't expect to get a hostel for less that 10 euro a night, and you would probably want to spend about 20 euro a night
flights are expensive as shit, consider flying to the country with the best exchange rate then busing to your destination
I was super shady when I traveled, but I wouldn't recomend it
the real struggle is booking a return flight, booking one in advance is essencial for saving money, but that means your budget has to be pretty solid
best ways to save money are staying at hostels with cooking facilities, because after a few weeks you'l be sick of picnic food bring your own cereal everywhere, scrambled eggs will keep you going wash your shit in the sink/shower
the czech republic is cool, I liked poland personally; france was really expensive turkey was the cheapest, but their exchange rate is less than stable
I'm taking a trip this summer with my friend, and this is the path we've decided to take, and will take and add to the list as we see fit. We're big hikers and fishers, so we've got some of the big spots on the list.
So, a few questions to any residents/frequent visitors of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico >Any good local dives/restaurants to check out? >Any good ghost towns in northern New Mexico/Arizona? >Any general suggestions of things to check out/do?
I just booked some last minute flights to Helsinki. Anybody got any suggestions for stuff to do there? Don't have time to really research so would love the input of people who live there or have been before. I'm happy to do anything, stuff unique to Finland/Helsinki would be preferable. Is there anything cool to do whilst the snow is down?
Will be leaving London for Washington in a few days. Staying for about a month, got a place to stay in Olympia.
Generally speaking, this will be my first visit to the evergreen state. Been to California plenty of times. I've got a few ideas of things I want to do, but I'm more concerned with making the most of my stay.
It's difficult to feel like you've been to a place without a couple of local contacts, and I'd regret leaving without having a memorable experience.
Any suggestions for things to do and see? I'm interested in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A month in Olympia, did you think this through all the way? Olympia is a relatively small town, granted it's a fun little town but it's just small. It has some cool nightlife I guess, there's lots of students so you might be able to meet some cool people, it's even more liberal than Seattle though so they are mostly all the SJW type. There have a pretty cool market in the bay harbor on weekends and nice fountain thingy that kids like to run around in.
There is lots of nature around that area especially in the Olympic peninsula. You've got that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you have the time take the 101 highway up to Port Angeles, and do a loop back to Olympia through Aberdeen. If you're into forests, you'll like the Olympic peninsula. Lots of hiking there, the trails will be muddy, but if you're English it wont be anything new.
Try to ride a ferry or two. There's ferries in the San Juan Islands.
Have you been to a ski mountain? There's a cluster of them to the east of Seattle. Even if it's just snowshoeing it's not something you could normally do in London.
Might want to look into some... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /trv/ I live in Antwerp (although I'm not from here, or from Europe) and I have from monday night to sunday free. I'm desperate for a little of peace of mind and to get away from a few things for a while, but i'm drawing a blank as to where to go in that time. Can you give me suggestions of calm, relaxed places to visit? I can spend 200eur in transport, I'd rather pick a train or a bus than a plane. The places doesn't need to be desolate, but no metropolis like Paris, Amsterdan or London. It can be more than one place, like a few small towns... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1067514 Just get a B&B with proximity to the ocean (or a lake). Walk on the beach or along the shore dawn and sunset. You'll be rejuvenated in no time. Our brains really need to look at water, part of some survival instinct to stay hydrated, rofl, or something. Park a camping folding chair right there and open a book, immerse, ignore your technology for the weekend.
Try to make it fun by posting pictures from places that are distinguishable enough to recognize rather than having to blindly guess (ie. not a generic photo of a beach w/ palm trees that could be taken in 30 different countries) yet not too obvious, like a telephone booth from London.
