Hey, i'm from belgium and have the opportunity to go study for half a year in pamplona, Spain, i wanna know how life is there... it seems like a very small city and i'm afraid i'll get bored. Looking for an active nightlife and fun student community, anyone familiar with this city? thanks
>>1065829 You can't actually. Zermatt is a car free village. So basically you have to drive to Täsch and then take a shuttle that is 12min long, and there is one every 20 minutes. You can also take a cab from there. You won't be able to drive to Zermatt but that is not a problem

Oh, now the other one went in. Despite the fact there is literally the same fucking shower in the hallway.
I fucking hate Asians, I'm never coming back to this shithole again. Fucking disrespectful bastards, I've been to so many third world countries and never been this consistently annoyed by a demographic
>>1065803 >>1065805 You could tell them to shut up if they bother you that much. Or invest in ear plugs.
That shit doesn't bother me too much actually. I realize it's bound to happen and I specifically go to hostels that look like they're not part oriented plus never go for dorm rooms bigger than 8 beds but usually try to stay in ones with 6 beds or fewer.
Hey guys, first time posting on this board (/n/ says hello). Anyways I have booked my ticket to Europe for the summer before my last semester at college and I was looking for a way to get around the continent. A British friend of mine who studied abroad in France told me about the Eurail pass and said it was great. My question to you, is it "great?" To generalize my trip I was planning on taking trains from;

Eurail pass is great if you're looking for more spontaneous type of travel. It's nice to be able to hop on a train at any time and take it anywhere. With that being said it's somewhat expensive but if you use it a lot you'll get your moneys worth.
Reservations are only really relevant in France, Spain and Italy. You have to pay about 10 Euros or so(might have changed since I was last over there) to get a seat on your train. If you don't they WILL NOT kick you off the train you will just have to keep moving seats all the time because someone else... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's a bit on the expensive side in my opinion, but you'll probably end up paying even more without it if you don't want to spend hours scouring the web for cheap last minute tickets, so i'd say go for it.
>>1065801 Did it this summer, but as an european citizen, so interrail. Its fucking awesome. You are free to go wherever the fuck you want, you see europe passing by in a comfy chair you can sleep in the trains instead of going in hostels.
Do you plan to go in winter? I've been in Latvia for 10 days, Riga is very intersting, be sure to visit the outskirts to see not only the touristy parts. In clubs and bars most staff will speak English, young people will know English, although in Jurmala or Tukums I was lucky to know even a little bit of Russian to communicate. Especially scenic are the castles around Sigulda and Turaida, if you like to hike.
To be fair, Poland and the Czech Republic are central Europe. Why not see more countries? Russia is the epitome of Eastern Europe, Moscow or Saint Petersburg would definitely be something interesting to see. It's hard to suggest anything because you didn't state a budget or other restrictions or say what you enjoy doing. For example based on how much you like hiking you could extend your stay in Zakopane to three days or reduce it to one if you don't plan on walking up the mountains or just doing the basic tourist trail.

Of all places, why Bastrop? My first job out of college was down there and I did not think it was a fun place. It's about 30 miles outside of Austin, which is very fun, but the road there is always extremely congested because of commuter traffic.
I seriously hope you have access to a car because there's no public transportation.
The one nice thing about the town was the state park, and that burned almost completely to the ground in 2011.

How are eurocucks so good at spotting Americans? I am never called out for being American despite my terrible French accent and people ask if I am Spanish or Italian because I am a little dark from being a quarter Mexican and a little Sicilian, but my white American friends who are white instantaneously get mocked and harassed wherever they go.
I typically wear sambas and slightly more fitted clothes than what Americans do but what makes them stick out like such sore thumbs?
-Americans usually have straight white teeth (this applies more to the younger generation) -Americans are loud talkers -Americans have a distinct accent and way of speaking English (Around the world everyone grows up hearing it in music, movies, tv etc) -Americans have more bland facial features because they're usually mixed-up Europeans genetically (I don't mean this in a negative way, Americans are often better looking) -Americans usually dress more casually and wear bigger sized clothing for their...

Got a job offer to work a season in the oil rigs in Alberta, Canada. The pay is a little less than I get here but I would like it for the experience.
My question is, are there a lot of ethnics in Alberta? Like I want to hang out with my own people mostly, how bad is the muslim problem there? Is it full of chinese and indians? What are good towns to hang out in that are going to be mostly whites?
Sorry but if I wanted to be around ethnics I'd go to Bali
>tfw you taught english abroad for a year and travelled all over europe and north africa and posted and participated in /trv/ all the time and took megabus trips around the U.S. in college then came back to America got a real job and now never travel because you only get 3 weeks off a year and it seems so horribly expensive
Did this happen to anyone else? Back then I didn't mind having only a couple g in the bank and spending it all traveling, but now even though I have like 50k, dropping 1k to go to europe for a week just doesn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1065535 Travel like a normal fag and use your 3 weeks.
I wish I saved the pic, but there is a meme floating around FB that equates purchases of an iphone, another item, and a hoverboard to plane tickets to Europe, and places in the USA. I think maybe the Carribean/S. America, too. And it closes with collect memories not things, or something like that.
>>1065517 As long as you stay out of playa del ingles and maspalomas it's actually pretty good. Las Palmas is decent, the nature in the center of the island is gorgeous and the small towns also offer nice food. Rent a car, drive around, go hiking or diving...
It's not really a place with individual incredible attractions. Stay away from the blatantly tourist stuff and have a good time. Just bring a book and some swimming trunks and enjoy yourself drinking, eating, relaxing, hiking, and shit on your parents dime. It might seem lame but its always nice to get away.
It's all relative and you should get in the right mindset. I know to an English person the canaries are kind of boring but to an American it'd be quite enticing.
