1. Is there direct transport from the airport to Padova
2. How can I best get from the airport to the various train stations (Ospedale, Asseggiano, Carpenedo, Mestre and Porto Marghera)?

I don't recommend staying in Macedonia for more than a day or two.
You'll exhaust things to see and do very, very fast. Macedonia is just a region of Bulgaria both ethnically and culturally and anything there- Bulgaria has it bigger, better.

Here's my quick recommendation, note that I can only give you details about Bulgaria:

Tell me about Kathmandu, /trv/. It's in the 3 places that I'm considering going to next summer and I realized I have enough Hyatt points to basically spend 2 weeks there for free. I doubt that I will need that much time there but I know next to nothing about it, it's just always been a place I've been fascinated with.

Basically, my questions are:
-How long is the ideal trip to Kathmandu and Nepal in general?
-Is there any tour that takes me as close to Everest as possible without needing any climbing gear or acclimatizing?
-What are some...

I just returned from Kathmandu last week. Spent 7 days there. In my opinion going only Katmandu isn't worth it.
The city doesn't really have that much to see. The earthquakes damage is still very visible. There are many temples and religious monuments etc but they're all fairly similar and they get kinda boring after seeing a few of them. Only a couple days in Kathmandu was enough for me to see everything there was to see. My advice would be to avoid the cities.
Also I wouldn't recommend traveling to Nepal in the summer months. In the monsoon season...

Even though the everest trek is very nice, I'd prefer the Annapurna circuit trek which starts from the Pokhara area. It's about 200km long and goes around the Annapurna massif. The lenght is from 2 to 3 weeks. Here's a great video from the region.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQy8rDxEdRU

>What are some must see things in Kathmandu/Nepal?
I really enjoyed Phaktapur. Definitely worth the day trip from Kathmandu. The Peacock Shop had some amazing wooden handcrafts. The owner showed us his massive house with almost every wall covered in wood carvings.

Also, can't remember the name but the area by the lake in Kathmandu where the hindu people do the crematation. The area was quite interesting. The monkey temple offers some nice views of the city if it's a clear day.

>Food recommendations?
Everything in general is cheap and good. Try the momo's. I personally prefered the vegetarian food in Nepal. Nepalese people don't eat beef or pork but chicken is very common. A notable thing is that beer is very expensive atleast in Kathmandu. Expect to pay up to 5 euros a beer. They're big bottles but still very expensive considering how poor the country is.

>Common scams to look out for?
Same as any other developing country I guess. Use common sense and watch your pockets especially in crowded areas. Taxis and merchants will always try to rip you off. Negotiate the price before you get in the cab.

I can answer other questions if I can.

I haven't been, but going in December and my impression is GTFO of Kathmandu ASAP and go to Pokhara or something.

I have another general question - I'm planning on doing the Annapurna circuit. I hope to just bring boots and hire literally everything else (jackets, thermals etc) as I'm going to Sri Lanka after and don't want to be lugging winter gear. Is this a stupid plan? I know lots of people hire down jackets etc but it's harder to get info about other gear.

The right way to do hawker centres is to visit a specific targeted place, not just "ooh I saw the one you haven't heard of". The great thing about it is that even though some obscure specialties might be in some random subdivision far from train service the incredibly low cost of the meal basically makes up for it, so you can basically take taxis around the island trying different things and not stress too hard about wasting money.

Hi all,

Next week I will be going on a 1,5 month backpacking trip through Peru (I'm from the Netherlands), from Aug 16 - Sept 27

I will be visiting Lima for a couple of days, then will probably do the Gringo tour starting at Pisco and visiting Islas de Ballestas, then going to Ica / Huacachina, Arequipa, Puno, and Cusco. I have no real itinerary but am roughly planning on going with the flow as I go.

However, I would like to stay in Arequipa or Cuzco for about a week to follow Spanish classes for a day or 4 or something. After Cusco, I would probably...

We were in Peru for a month (overstayed a little because we loved it so much). Your itinerary looks doable during that time, just remember that distances are large and so you could use up days travelling between destinations.

I would definitely recommend staying in Arequipa for your Spanish lessons. It's got great wool shopping (better than Cusco) and accommodation is alot cheaper. It's also got excursions to El Misti, a hikeable volcano.

You don't have to book the hike in advance, there are loads of operators doing them. Which hike will you be...

The distances are one of the reasons why I won't be picking up Bolivia as well. I'm mentally preparing for 10+ hour bus rides, already got my car sickness pills.

Good idea for staying longer in Arequipa. I feel that since Cuzco is much more touristic, the prices there are more expensive as well.

I don't have any idea of the different tours that there are to be booked there, although I heard as much tours ranging from 2D3N (which have my preference), other than the Inca trail.

Hey all, the family and I are planning on making a trip to Europe this winter (approximately December 26 through early January, maybe a week and a half).

Anybody have any general pointers in the right direction? We're thinking Germany/Austria and maybe Switzerland, but the latter is rather expensive, prohibitively so. Interests include the typical shit: food, museums, outdoorsy stuff like hiking, attractive cities to walk around in, etc.

My thought is that typically summer-friendly vacation spots like Croatia, Greece, Portugal, etc. won't be as appealing...

I recommend the czech republic and especially Prague. In summer the city is extremely crowded, so i guess as a family its way more comfortable to travel there in winter. czech mountains are very nice, accommodation is cheap (at least cheaper than in any of the three you mentioned) and its great if youre a beginner with skiing. Cross-country-skiing is a nice replacement for hiking also.

Vienna is simply an outstanding Christmas destination, as is Prague. Sometimes the city markets, are a destination unto themselves, look them up. You want to balance a city stay with smaller towns to get better prices, but realize the wealthy are off, kids are out of school, and anywhere with ski weather will have higher occupancy.

If price is the biggest concern, get into eastern europe, Budapest, Romania....there's a delicate balance between religious holiday countries and actually having things open...

Traveling: Guam is not so interesting in and of itself. You can cover pretty much everything in 2 days. Guam however is good as a staging point to go to other Micronesian islands.

Moving to: Cost of living is fairly low, and jobs (especially in the tourism industry) are easy to get. But there's not a lot to do there, so it's easy to get island fever.

if you're hell bent on studying in munich or other similiar expensive cities that's probably true but cost of living in the eastern parts of Germany are significantly lower.

MAA in English, and I've been working as a script/copywriter these past few years. I do have experience working in hospitality, but it's been a while. I do have a ton of freelance clients who don't give a fuck where I am as long as I have an internet connection and meet my deadlines so I don't need a job NOW NOW NOW, but... y'know. I've worked as a baker, in sales and a few other things.

I was also in the army for a while, but I'm not sure how applications that might have.

Not the first poster, but do you have any qualifications, anything at all regarding German? Considering your English degree, if you add onto that a German qualification (IIRC the Goethe institute does certifications for foreigners), you could start branching out into plurilingual copywriting (and translation, if you're feeling up to snuff). Knowing more languages usually lends you better-paying contracts.

Me and a friend will go to Harz for 2 days this Saturday/Sunday, having booked an airbnb room in a town at the north-western part of the Harz.

Can you guys recommend two easy hiking routes (around 6-8 hours) for two days?

Also on our way back to Hamburg we will visit Hanover for about 2-3 hours. Is there anything exciting in that city?

Hanover has a nice train station with good mettbrötchen, but other than that, it's pretty much a non-place. (im a southerner though...)

Thus, I don't know too much about the Harz, but the Oker valley is absolutely worth seeing! I'd guess that the bizarre rock formations there are probably fascinating even for a non climber.

Other than that, there should be a few nice, small, old towns. And the Brocken might be nice, both, landscape wise, as well as historically.

Don't know about hiking routes, but I think the Barbarossadenkmal is worth visiting

Depends on the city in NZ senpai. Auckland would a bit more expensive to live as it is a major city, Wellington 2nd then Dunedin third. Think $200 a week for rent, 70 for food 50 - 80 for utilities and another 100 for miscellaneous as a rough guideline for NZ. multiply the quantity over 104 and you have a figure about how much you need to save.

I heard sometimes there are things called jobs where people will give you actual money to do tasks for them.

Its kind of a weird concept but surprisingly alot of people do it. Something to look into at least.

That pic looks like La Paz, Bolivia. Entering the city via bus you can get a panoramic view just like that because it's built into the mountains.

Pic related is from the National Geographic insta of La Paz.

There is a whole percent thing of the price in your order but I tip on how the waiter treats and also don't be cheap!
>>
Typically tip 15-20% I think it is. But 15% is standard. So add about 1/10 of your cost and then a few dollars more.
It's shitty and most Americans don't even like it but it literally keeps food on their tables, as places like restaurants pay below minimum wage.
>>
When the fuck did 15% become the standard??? The standard is 10%. Just because restaurants print out receipts with tip suggestions starting at 15% doesn't mean you're obligated to tip that. 10% is fine OP. More if your server was very attentive.

Norfolk is a pretty decent small city, lots going on, very lively arts scene, Traffic in the area can be brutal for its size, since tunnels are choke-points. Lots of decent restaurants. Summers are hot/humid, and due to low-lying area, street-flooding is common when there are thunderstorms. There is a good Pokemon spot down by the pagoda.

thanks senpai

I've recently graduated from high school, and have been suffering from major depressive disorder for the past two years. I'm sick of my life, and can't stand to spend anymore time in the situation I'm currently in. Before I spend another 4 years of my life studying at a University, I want a few months of freedom. I want to travel to somewhere I've never been, and experience something new.

I've got ~$7,000AUD saved up. What can this get me? I was hoping to possibly going to Japan. I should also mention, that I'm most likely going to...

well no weed but japan is cool. if you really want somewhere alone and beautiful and secluded go up to tohoku or hokkaido. if you've just graduated high school there's no rush mate.
>>

Thanks.

I know that I probably shouldn't be rushing, but I feel like if I spend anymore time having to deal with the issues I've got in my current situation, I'm going to end up killing myself. And I can't handle a bunch more stress from university so soon after high school.

I also live with a pretty strict and religious family, so I also really want to be able to drink alcohol/do drugs/whatever, without any repercussions.

Keep in mind you will go to jail for drugs in japan, its not like Australia where if you are caught its a fine.
7k will get you about 90 days or a bit more which is the length of a visa. Eat out of combinis ,sight see with your legs, spend a good amount of time in each location. Learn essential phrases if you dont really care about the language, if you do try to learn as much as possible before you leave aus.
What state you in?

301 KB,
Hey /trv/. /lit/izen reporting in, first time on your board. A friend and I are going to drive over to Centralia PA tomrrow, get high as fuck, eat shrooms and camp there the night. The initial idea was to camp in Centralia, but I'm a little worried that we won't find a safe/legal place to park the car. Wouldn't want my friend to get tickets and/or towed for some stupid bullshit. So I figured we might rent a camp site in a state park 30 min east of Centralia (for when we get tired of exploring the town), leave our car there, hike out into the park and set up camp...
