>>1065484 >I want to travel to London in March with a friend. We will stay a week or two. Is it safe in and around London? It's simply too big of a city to feel statistically worried. The usual advice is staying tuned to the news for any published threats (if they publish them), avoiding certain areas that would seem like a target (oh, I'd skip any major soccer games, anything public like a demonstration, or national holiday gatherings). That's just me, playing it extra safe.
>>1065488 Yea that's true. Tho we are going to see some of the sights like the big ben, the tower bridge etc. But avoiding anything public seems like a good idea. We dont know where to stay yet. Are there any areas around london that tend to be more dangerous and we should not stay?
>>1065471 >>1065471 Get yourself a Milepost, even a used one on ebay or something and plan it out. There will be issues getting a room in some locations at some times of year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Milepost http://www.themilepost.com/ The digital version might not have the great photos and local ads that aid your ideas for stopping, such as for restaurants. The best part of the book is that it identifies mile by mile, what the heck you're looking at,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1065685 I would expect that any hotel that is discovered to have infestations would be shut down by the government until it can show the infestation is gone. If it puts the place out of business, so be it.
>>1065455 If you have a pin and can withdraw money from ATMs in the US it will work everywhere in europe the same way. insert the card, enter your pin, done. If you have a newer card it will have paypass where you can pay up to 40€ by just putting your card on the reader without entering a pin (great to quickly buy tickets or other small stuff.)
Some older machines in restaurants will print the signature receipt.
American here traveling through the UK right now. I have had no problems using my credit cards with a chip at all (I have chase and as well as a west coast credit union). I do have some cards without a smart chip, and although most cashier's are confused by the old act of swiping, since America is lagging in this technology, it has worked in every single instance I have used it. Hope that helps some.
>>1065455 Make sure you have a longer PIN, not just the 4 digit kind in the US.
The swiping still works, of course, as does imprinting and reading the numbers manually into a machine. So, though an unmanned ATM or train station machine could conceivably have an issue, you can still go into your bank (Citi), and get money. Having 2 cards is great of course, gives you a backup when one is having an issue. And, in my experience, issues do happen and they're unavoidable, from temporary zip code alerts even if you told...

hello. i am sick of my own country and looking to migrate to a far more developed country such as US or Canada. I am thinking of becoming a police officer and living in peace until the day I die.
What are my options? I graduated from law school in my country and have no skills whatsoever. I have no intention of studying again and working as a lawyer. I would settle for a peaceful, average salary job. What should I do?
>>1065411 Well for job prospects, the US is going to be needing police. They're quitting/retiring in droves. All the guys I went to HS with are hitting their 20yr marks and getting the heck out (racial tensions). It's just not the rewarding job it could be.
Where you come from is important as to who is going to take you with open arms with your immigrant idea. The law degree means nothing in either country because there's an abundance of them, so your degree itself isn't a ticket. If you could get... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1065408 You are very good at considering your FOV as well as pivoting speed and you work well within your boundaries. Very nice music selection too, really helped with the vibe of the location and whatnot and is much better than the electronica trash that so many european video makes use in their stuff regardless of subject matter. My only suggestion as that you not let the blackness at the end linger so much >On a personal note, did you help the ducky?
Hey all, I live in (well JUST outside) Paris, and if you have any questions regarding culture, things to see, misconceptions, traditions, norms, stereotypes, or anything else feel free to ask away (pic related as fuck because I can't be bothered to drop down to reddit)
>>1065374 Sounds cold. The right socks to wear will be a blend that contains wool. Think hiking/skiing/boot sock that contains some ability to make your feet last hours for walking in your shoes, and also not get cold if you perspire or get some snow in there. There's a saying in colder climates that "if it's cotton, you're dead."
>>1065374 I'm from Miami, anon. When I plan my packing, I tend to go high-tech brands suited for my needs. So, not sure if you have that access or disposable income, either or. I know, even in my great city, that it's really hard to find a 3-in-1 shell at a local store that isn't $$$ at like a Burlington or ski shop, and that you can land in Anchorage, and get one at the local Wal-Mart for $25 or hit up some great gear stores in D.C. before an overseas flight and get like a Eastern Mountain sports shell and nice...

In an attempt to live a location independent live, we (a bunch of explorers) created a “blogmap” of Europe. This map is packed with the most unique things to do and see across the European continent. I may only hope that this map is an inspiration for the more adventurous traveler among us, I bet there’s plenty of things you didn’t knew about yet. Would love to hear what you think about it or if something is missing :D http://broscene.com/unique-travel-inspiration/
If you don't mind traveling outside the city, about an hour south of Amsterdam in Kaatsheuvel is a place called Efteling, the best amusement park in the Netherlands and one of the best in Europe. The park is independently owned (not part of a chain), but it has a God-tier appreciation to themeing and detail on par with Disney Parks. They have a respectable roller coaster assortment, too.
borange county here, boyfriend got a gig in san fran and we're making it a long weekend. His show is on fri the 15th and we're staying till the 17th. Anything cool going on? Anyone wanna rent us out their place airbnb style for $$? Also I don't eat fruit but strict vegan due to my foodallergies(fucking kill me pls), anyone know any bomb restaurants to visit? Or museums or stuff? If not we're just gonna get drunk and explore the city, we've both been there before, but him only during gigs and me only during my lolistage
I've lived in the bay area for 10+ years and go into SF to screw around and get good food all the time. What kind of stuff are you guys into? Off the top of my head there is a LOT of good coffee and some good pastries/bakeries if you're into that, and at least 4 really cool museums. Do you want to know the touristy stuff, or have you guys already done that?
>>1065349 Hi from SF, and welcome. As far as vegan food is concerned, you will have no problems at all--we have more than a few all-veg restaurants, most all- or mostly-vegan, and nearly everywhere will have at least one vegan thing to eat. Herbivore, on either Divisadero in the Western Addition (between the Haight and Alamo Square, basically) or the Mission (Valencia and... 18th? 20somethingth? Between the 16th St and 24th St BART stations somewhere), is popular, reasonably tasty, all-vegan, and cheap. Valencia is also a major... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /trv/, eurofag here. Me and my gf would like to go somewhere warm in February for a week or so. As our budget is limited to roughly 400 € p.p. we cant fly to tropical destinations. So far we came up with two possibilities:
Egypt/Red Sea: You can get really cheap flights + hotels now but I figured theres not much to do besides swimming/snorkeling and for that the weather is probably a bit cold.
Marrakesh: Seems to be a very interessting city, but flights are a quite expensive.
Lisbon: City looks nice, flights are cheap but no t-shirt weather.

>>1065412 >You won't be able to get into the Sinai peninsula depending on your nationally. Not sure if it's completely locked down anymore but Brits aren't allowed yet. It's following the soviet jet crash. Things are completely cancelled for travel in and out of this red sea idea.
Tshirt weather is tough. But, you could enjoy some greek seaside or something with warm water, right?
New Japan general, guys. Sorry I messed up, here is the old thread. >>1060767
Note that I have tweaked the top page a bit, adding information about the JR rail pass. Please try to use this version if you make the new thread after this one.

Hey everyone, I know that these threads get posted about 100 times a day but I need some advice. I'm considering traveling to tokyonext summer for about 10 day. I can read hiragana, some katakana and some kanji. My main problem is getting lost and such. Has anybody that has traveled to Tokyo or Japan in general ever gotten lost or how did you get around? Did the taxi drivers speak some English? We're there signs located? P.s: not related but is it true that Japanese women love foreigner?
Check out the courthouse, the mission, the botanic garden, the museum of natural history if you want. Check out some hiking trails if you're into it. Walk along the beach and the pier. Rent one of those bikes with four wheels and multiple seats and ride along the beach. Walk along state street and shop/ eat at restaurants. Eat at La Super Rica.
Basically just explore and walk around. Enjoy the beach and the mountains and the landmarks. Wine tasting exists but I don't know anything about it. Check out Freebirds if you're in Goleta.
