I have something on my mind.

I have been travelling for a while now. The constant hassle and scam attempts are starting to get to me.

Massage, Taxi, whatever and everybody tries to rip you off. I had a bad experience months ago in Delhi on my first day and got out of it without damages, still it got to me bad.

If you travel to tourist destinations these people are the only locals i seem to encounter. In rural areas there isnt that much to do, so I end up spending most of my time in more touristy locations.

I got to a point where i walk most of my...

There's lots to do outside cities, come on, man. I know that feel 110%, and you have my sympathy, but there's an obvious solution, just gtfo of the cities.
Or go to another country, hell.
Or find a travel buddy; it's nice when somebody has your back while you're trying to haggle.
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.

Hey there, i have been in Munich, Prague, Poland, since 2 months ago, but i wanna stay longer, any advise to be able to stay more time, or trick to get a residense/job permit?

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 !
In general for non-EU citzens you are only allowed to stain 90 days within 6 months with a tourist visa.

Well played, Europe.

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.

Any help is much appreciated!

Of course, I'd like to make the most of it for the least. But with safety kept into account. Thanks for the help everyone! Really appreciate it! :D
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.
Go to an all inclusive resort. Maybe a cruise. Look on Groupon, or for vacation/flight packages offered by airlines like Delta.

Getting to Rio 2016 Olympics with 53,000 AA miles.

Is it possible? Have never flown, but I churned out 53,000 miles. I already have tickets to a couple events, so it's just a matter of getting out there.

How does this shit work? Even if I can't afford the full ticket with the miles, I can still use them for a fat discount, right?

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,...

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).

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.

You think a lot about yourself though, but I don't...

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...

Any Australian travelers here? Have you done Eastern Europe?

How long do you reckon 5000 AUD would last you in eastern europe? That is excluding flights.

I plan to spend as little as possible, but not to the point of camping or eating from garbage bins.
18 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

USD to AUD is about 1 to .7 right now, so multiply those numbers by about 1.4

If you stick to the cheaper cities in Eastern Europe, you can spend $30 AUD a day and have a decent amount of fun in addition to subsistence food and shelter
I did the same thing 6 months ago

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
Thank you! This site looks super useful. I'mma dig into it.

That's one of my concerns, really, whether to book my return flight or not. I think I will be able to save a bit of money if I can couchsurf or get good airbnb deals.

Part of me wants to plan and make a booking for every place so I'm secured, and stretch out my budget for 2-3 months, then return home to my job.

The other part of me wants to just wing it. Buy a...

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?

Winter sucks but there is stuff to do in cities. Go to Kallio for cheaper drinks and nightlife, have walks in southern neighboirhoods for beautiful architecture. Stay inside.

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...

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...

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...

I'll be getting a rental. I have a license out here, just not in the US. I always heard that it takes a day to pass your test and get your license in the US, or maybe that's just Hicktown states.

Whether that's the case or not, I'll be seeing a lot of the state. I'll check out Seattle a few times, and I might go up to Vancouver. That sort of thing.

As for the people, I'm very cut and dry, say it how it is Southerner. If I encounter any harsh tones, I'm confident...

Havent seen that one.

But i raise you rev runs around the world.

Basically they go to amazing places and act mildly disfunctional and highly annoying.

The one i just watched they go to Switzerland and rev run decides to go on a diet as the whole family visits choclate shops and eats fine cheese and meats.

Also they are late for a boat ride and the boat takes off without them. Best part
That dude on the right looks so fucking unhappy to be there lol.

Oh, btw, I don't suppose you know where I could get this image but without the words? I need a new dub-check pic and this looks perfect.

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...

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.
That's a good idea. Any suggestions?

Looks Mediterranean, but hard to pinpoint. The architecture could help if someone recognized it.
