I want to get from Venice's Treviso Airport to Padova. I know I can catch several trains from the train stations that are ~15km from the airport, but I want to know: 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 am thinking about taking a trip to Macedonia next year, and was wondering if anyone got any suggestions on where to go, how to travel or some general heads up. My main priority is to vist Ohrid, and maybe Skopje, but are open to vist nearby countries such as Albania, Serbia and Greece. Should I travel with train or bus?
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:
-Vidin, the Vidin-Calafat bridge connects BG and RO, a day to see the fortress by the Danube river, some monuments... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1148024 The reason I am so keen going to Macedonia is because of the diverse culture and hidden gems such as the city of Ohrid. I am not that interested in Bulgaria, but rather Montenegro og Albania. Thanks for the tips tho!
I'm visiting Cuba in few weeks and i'm very excited, but besides little abuot their history i don't know shit about Cuba. Can someone provide me with some valuable informations about Cuba. Internet connection in cuba? What food should i try, should i be aware of something while i'm there etc... I'm visiting Havana and Varadero. Have you been to Cuba and what are your impressions of that cunt??
>>1148128 Never been to Cuba I see? Just because it is a poor third world country doesn't make it cheap like Mexico or the DR. Shoestring budget is not particularly easy and the Cuban government takes great pains to make it difficult for "backpacker" types
Be prepared for a rude shock when you get there if you believed otherwise
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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 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.
Ok I'm traveling tomorrow from Europe to San Francisco, and I'm kinda going paranoid for the Customs and shit like that. I fear they are gonna take hours going throu my Laptop and all my fucking possession. I don't even have anything illegal (except for torrents and shit like that) and I'm gettin pretty scared
>I don't have anything illegal >tells us about the illegal stuff he has
USA is THE land of litigious copyright owners, lad. Torrenting there can fuck you up for life depending on severity of offence. But I don't think they actually check contents of passenger personal devices, so dw about that. If you aren't bringing in/taking out more than 1 brand new/in box device, just go through "nothing to declare".
>>1147966 Use any decent HDD wiper that actually fill the disk with garbage data multiple times. Not even the NSA+FBI combined can find traces after a successful wipe. If you want to be extra sure, buy a new HDD and use the wiper on it before installing anything. Also, take just a carry-on. That way they can scan through every singe shit you're carrying faster and you won't have to waste hours of your life in customs. If you can't fit everything you need in a carry-on only, consider aborting the trip or... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am going for three days to Singapore. I am planning to visit Gardens at the Bay and Orchard Road plus Balester Food Hawkers. Anything else I should see? Any recommendations? Are there ladyboys in Singapore? Is prostitution legal or should I avoid prostitutes?
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.

>>1147948 I want to go to Singapore because it is clean and orderly, I live in London which is incredibly dirty and actually the trip is sort of like scouting mission to see if I could move there to work.

>>1147926 What lonelyness? As an introvert human contact isn't nearly as necessary as it is for other people. I've travelled a fair few times by myself now, almost all of it on my own, and I can't say I've been lonely at 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1147917 Grab a drink at the various unique bars, you'll meet people. Speaking of bars and people, some of them are great to WATCH people, all kinds of weirdos, tourists, rich and poor, first timers and repeat offenders. Food is great, you should do a buffet once and never again, Mandarin Oriental is amazing for food and if you can afford it hotel. It's a cool town to just wander around. There are also museums, tourist traps, and shops to look at, and you can relax at the various pools. If you get bored of that you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1147908 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.
>>1147908 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Live in Belgium myself, want a short 2-3 day trip within Europe to party and (if) possible play poker.
Best would be if there is also a hostel nearby that does pubcrawls. I thought about
- London, - Manchester (dont know if the poker scene is good there) - Newcastle (dont know if the poker scene is good there) - Vienna ( dont know if the party scene is good there) - Berlin (dont know anything

If all goes well I'll be living in Tokyo for 3 months next year. Unemployed, can just chill for the entire time with a budget for food and rent etc paid in advance.
I'd love to stay in an apartment like pic related. I've got an image in my head of staying up all night with neon lights outside. Is there a particular area of tokyo/name of this style of apartment? I'm trawling airbnb but there's a lot of listings and it's hard to tell. Thanks in advance.
>>1147774 I'm not too fazed if it's not exactly the same. I'd like to visit tokyo anyway. I'm going to Moscow again for a few months, then across America for like 4 months, then tokyo, and I'll probably go back across America after.
I'm sure most of you know maps.me. I have a question to those who use it. I don't like the new update they've had since a few weeks. There are various issues I have with it, but there is one thing in particular that annoys me.
The navigation. I don't use it, but for some reason the app insists on putting a marker on my location and constantly zooms towards it. It makes looking at other parts of the world quite annoying. And since I only rely on wifi for internet and don't have 3G or 4G or how do you call it, the marker... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'll be in SF for a few months under a J1 visa. How easy is it to get part time work under the table? Last time I was there, noticed many vacancies in Asian restaurants in the cities between SF and San Jose. Do you think it's easy to persuade them to give me a cash in hand job without the work visa?
I want to attend university in Germany/Austria, and I'm in eastern Europe right now. As you can probably tell from my place of origin, I'm not very well off. I have a choice, I can stay and attend university here, or I can try and move to Germany or Austria, attend university there, adapt to the life there during my studies and be prepared to immediately work there.
I think I'd rather choose Germany/Austria over a country that is ran by politicians who don't care how their people live and where there are literally no jobs. There is basically a huge... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>working part time won't pay the bills from what I've read 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. The 200-300€ you have to pay to the university every semester usually includes public transportation and access to government subsidised meals in the mensa. You could also try to get a place in a "studentenwohnheim" (which means super cheap rent but it's hard to get). Bear in mind... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1147580 I thought they abolished university fees? >>1147587 Well my mum makes a shit salary so we agreed she would pay the living costs for one semester max, until I can somehow get some income going, be it a scholarship or a grant or whatever. Basically I'll have enough to live for a semester, and from there I'm on my own. Wouldn't a part time in eastern Germany yield less since the cost of everything is basically cheaper?
>have EU citizenship >not UK, so no Brexit issues >am white as the purest snow
For years, moving to Germany has been rattling around my head. No idea why, it's just on of those things that's been gnawing at me. One downside, I do not speak German. At all.

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.
>>1147401 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.
>>1147217 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.
gf and i have been on a road trip across the US for the past 4 months. unemployment just ended tho so we're now looking for ethical or unethical ways to make money. not tryna get into anything sexual. both in our mid 20s... any ideas?
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.
>>1146943 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.
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 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?
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...
