Hello /trv/! I am asking you a favour. Anyone who's living (or traveling) in Wien could send me a photo of the house at Kaiserstraße 34? I am doing a reasearch about a famous scientist who lived there. Thank you in advance.
I am supposed to be traveling to Copenhagen for a month but I am unable to find any accommodation that fits within my budget... Roomster and airbnb are pretty useless. Would honestly love to just rent a place for a month. Literally scoured the internet and cant find anything. Hotels are just too expensive for that length of time. Help me guys, i don't know what to do :'(
>>1147244 Student living in Cph here. Sorry m8, but you're very unlikely to find a place to live. The housing situation is completely fucked right now. This is also one of the worst times to be looking for accommodation because all the new students are doing the same.
Try Facebook groups, sometimes people rent their places(often illegaly) for a month or so when they go on holiday.
It's probably really cheap but it's a country packing 160 million people into a territory the size of Iowa, and it apparently has a really widespread sex slavery problem as well as an unstable political situation.
How safe is Mexico right now? I plan on going to Mexico in 2 weeks for a week, with some of my friends to the city. And, visit one of the enthic states, maybe Jalisco, Guerrero, Port Veracruz. One of those, anyone been to one of those recently? Is it safe to travel or hold off?
Went to Cancun last summer, wanna explore more of the city, and stuff.
Going to Montreal this week from Thursday to Sunday. Looking for any sort of tips on how to spend the time.
We're staying Outremont and plan on buying a 3-day metro pass to get around. We'll also have a car, but I figured it would make sense just to park it and forget about it since I imagine it would be a hassle to park everywhere. Is getting around the city doable on the public transit from Outremont?

>>1145455 Le Robin Square in Old Montreal is the best meal I've ever had. Everything is decadent. Go there. You will not regret it. Juliette et Chocolat for alcoholic hot chocolate Schwartz's for smoked meat Chez Paree for titties Restaurant L'Original for local game meat
>>1145455 Don't bother with the underground city, it's a tourist trap. Jean-talon market is ok, the oyster bar there is kinda nice. If you want to have a good time: just bar hop on st-denis, or st-laurent. There is enough stuff on both streets to keep you occupied for a month.
I've seen a bunch of questions here and there about the hostel experience, so I thought I would write you some info because you've obviously never heard of Google.
> What is a hostel? Hostels provide budget accommodation in shared dormitories - you pay for the bed rather than the room. Usually this means you share bathroom facilities (some rooms have sinks in the dorms), often a lounge area, and sometimes a kitchen.
Dormitories can be divided between mixed or single-sex, and at some hostels you can also... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
> Ok, but do I have to book? Can't I just turn up? It depends. When are you going? Is there something going on at a time (a big concert, a city-wide festival, a sport event like a marathon, royal visit etc)? Is it high season? Is it a really popular destination/particular district thereof?
Often, if you're staying a week or so, you can do yourself a favour and book yourself two nights. That way you settle, get a feel for the place, and if you really hate it you can look for something/where else.
This isn't always... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
> How do I choose which one's the right one? As I say, you can use various booking sites as well as the usual TripAdvisor to look for reviews. Prices can vary hugely. I've stayed in hostels that were about £50 a night (around 65USD) in a mixed dorm, and I've had private double bedrooms for about a fiver (~6USD). It all depends where in the world it is, as well as other factors like how many facilities it offers etc.
While I would say to read reviews, take them with a pinch of salt. I've gone to well-rated places that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
> How do I keep safe? LOCK. YOUR. BELONGINGS. Most places are safe, usually you're with a bunch of other travellers who are all in the same boat as you, so you're not going to get dickheads.
Occasionally dickheads exist. A room of 7 of us in a 12 bed dorm got their wallets, phones, phone chargers, and expensive cameras stolen during the night while they were sleeping because they didn't secure their shit in the lockers provided. They're there for a reason, use them.
Having said that, you may also want to just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Alright /trv/ I've got 35k saved up and am ready to start a new life abroad. Il be using the money to continue to live off poker. I need to know the best place to live on $1500-2000 a month where there is also a thriving casino scene.
>>1141450 Yes I was looking at prague but what worries me is that city centre apartments may be too much for my 1.5-2k budget. And if I lived far away from the casinos/city centre I would need some kind of transportation method.
Alright since my last thread died without much of a reply, I'm gonna try again, this time a bit more concrete:
Going to Cyprus next week (Arriving on August 11th at night, departing on August 16th in the afternoon) and looking for input on my itinerary/suggestions on things to do/see. Here's what I have so far:

>>1146708 I have only been there for work, so my time for "touristy" things was somewhat limited. However, I had to work right in the middle of the Troodos mountains, which I would deem very much worth seeing! Its quite a nice landscape, and the fact that you can find such high, almost alpine mountais that close to the sea is fascinating. I was there in spring, and there was skiing going on on Mt. Olympos in the morning, and you could go swimming in the sea on the afternoon. Also, the geology is fantastic! Kykkos... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1146722 yeah I think I will certainly enjoy my time there if I go, it's just that my grandparents live in the mountains and I oftentimes visit them, whereas I live in a landlocked country so I don't get to see the ocean that much. >And you should probably be able to find some cheap, rather rustic hotels in the mountains. seems like most stuff is booked out unfortunately. Got a slightly overpriced shitty hotel but that's fine I guess
>>1146789 >it's just that my grandparents live in the mountains and I oftentimes visit them, whereas I live in a landlocked country so I don't get to see the ocean that much. Fair enough. Same for me. Still, the combination of "real" (ie. almost 2000 m asl) mountains AND the ocean was absolutely fascinating. since its literally a 1 hour drive from the Olympos skiing club to the beach in Limmasol, you wont loose to much time.
Near Taipei you have Jiufen, Yilan, and Hualien. Jiufen is the surreal oceanside village Spirited Away was based on. Yilan has the Kavalan Whiskey distillery for a tour. Hualien has Taroko Gorge and nature galore.
So /trv/, I really want to go on a bike trip through Europe, but I'm not sure what bike I will need.
Been looking at Surly bikes, and I'm thinking Surly Troll. Looks like a bike that goes as well on the road as in the woods. That and the ECR. The Long Haul Trucker and the Disc Trucker also seems very good, but looks like it is mainly a road bike, and I want to have the possibility of going "wild".
What bike would you reccommend for a trip like this?
Does anyone have any experience with interrail? I'm leaving on my first interrail the 7th of August from Denmark. My first stop is in Hamburg. I am meeting my friends in Budapest, so i need to get to Budapest from Hamburg and desu i'm pretty overwhelmed.
I'm not that old and i have never travelled by myself. Does anyone have some good advice?
I am planning on moving to East Asia in 8-10 years, but I want to start planning now. In particular I've been looking at Hong Kong and Singapore as I like the way those places are run and don't particularly mind the weather(also interested in Japan, but I'll ask about that in the General).
How does one go about starting the process? Are there any /trv/-approved guides? I've looked through the ones I could find, but most don't go too in-depth. I'm also interested in how one gets naturalised and whether immigrants are allowed to work in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi Op I have lived in HK but on European company payroll. As such I was just considered as a tourist and had to renew my permit every 90 days (a day trip across the border to Shenzhen was enough to get a new stamp). This was enough to rent a serviced apartment, purchase a phone card and so on. But this wouldn't grant you anything that would be based on citizenship. Most expats I knew where there on work visas, and that's probably the easiest way to gain citizenship: being hired by a local company that sponsors your visa. Then you are more legit in regards...

>>1146264 >A lot of the online job postings seem to require Cantonese Hongkonger here. This is true. Most of the jobs that do not require Cantonese are "expat" jobs (eg. ESL teacher, vet, pilot, business manager/executive, professor, etc) Where are you from?
>>1145908 Don't listen to this guy, he's trolling. Prague, Budapest and Krakow are all beautiful places but they're completely full of plebs and you'll see lots of British people vomiting everywhere and being rude to local people and thinking they can sleep with everyone.
But, that said, according to what you said I would recommend Poland. It's cheap, there is good beer in the big cities, Poland (obviously) has a very interesting history and it's easy to get around. For a place which is slightly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'll be in Panama City for Spring Break next year and my buddy and I will have access to more money than we know what to do with.
Need recommendations for places to turn up and things to do while there. If anyone can tell me of a couple good clubs that play American-style music that'd be great too. We both speak Spanish fluently, for what it's worth. Good places to pick up chicks would be much appreciated as well.
Hey, this is first time I post here. I am planning to travel to Iceland with a friend, although we've seen minor stuff about Iceland we still don't know how to move from a place to another place since we don't drive. Are bycicles an option then?
Also we heared that it's expensive out there so how does one not spend fortune.
Is it better to camp rather than staying hostels? Are there any other tips you can offer me about Island.
From place to place you mean between cities far from Reykjavík? If so, there are some buses and planes but I wouldn't trust on those, I'd recommend to rent a cheap car if you plan to visit other cities/waterfalls/ringroad shit or try to hitchhike which many people do. If you mean moving within the city it is pretty small so I think you can either walk or rent a bike.
It is pretty expensive especially in the summer, outside of high season the price drops quite a bit but it's still expensive compared to many places. If you want to save money I'd recommend... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You're quite lucky because Varese is located in an ideal spot to see many beauties of northern Italy. First of all, you're surrounded by many lakes that are often chosen as tourist destinations, such as Lake of Varese, Lake Maggiore, Lake of Orta, Lake of Lugano, Lake of Como, Lake of Iseo and others.
I highly suggest you to take a trip to Lake of Orta, on the bank of which you will find Orta San Giulio, a small graceful village. From here you can reach San Giulio Island by boat, which is the one you can see in the right-hand corner of picture... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you like tiny old villages, you could plan a trip to Castiglione Olona (9 kilometers from you), Arcumeggia, Gromo, Pagazzano, Camerata Cornello and all the ones on the coast of Lake of Iseo. An absolute gem, included in UNESCO's cultural heritage list, is Crespi d'Adda, an incredible industrial village of the late 19th century, near Bergamo. It's a weird masterpiece of urban engineering, probably unique in the world.
Last but not least, you can visit the Sacri Monti (Holy Mounts), again... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1145244 Thanks! I've been a bit reluctant to really travel on my own because my Italian is pretty bad, but the places seem too nice to not go to. I'll try to drag a coworker to follow me so I have someone who can talk Italian to people for me.
Any tips on getting to them? Or just use the trains?
(Also, if you know of any good bars/clubs in Varese or Milan that would be great. This Friday, I have to be in Milan at night for a horrifyingly early morning flight anyway)
In a scale of 1-10, where 1 is airport level with the country's passport in hand and 10 is impossiburu, how hard is it for foreigners to cross by train (read: by land, not by plane) between Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam?
>>1146761 There's a thread dedicated to meeting qts from around the world on /int/. It's slow, and you don't need to take part in it, but you're welcome to. You'll find a link to the website and a pastebin answering most of the question you'll ask. It's a penpal website, but many people use it as an international dating website. It's buggy, but it's the best of its kind. You can find the thread on /int/ by looking for "Culture Pals". Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In most cities gyppos are confined to ghettos and they aren't as dangerous as you'd think. They deal with petty crime (low risk/low reward). They'd rarely try to swindle/rob you outright. Only if you're in their area and you look vulnerable.
Depends on how much time you have, Serbia is entirely skippable in terms of culture, architecture and anything actually to see. Macedonia is also safe to skip.
Other than that, in terms of recommendations:
Croatia first, Montenegro is a hidden gem Albania is nice Bulgaria would be very interesting Romania... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I can only speak from my one 2-week experience in Ohrid, but I found Macedonia to be absolutely stunning both with regard to nature and culture. I'm interested to hear what made you form your particular opinion. Could you elaborate?
just walk around the city, it feels really imperial. Go check out museum quarter.
The Schönbrunn Schloss is beautiful and Unesco heritage iirc, I recommend going on your most sunny day.
If you're staying for a long while, you can catch a bus in the morning to Bratislava, do the city & come back in the evening (or stay sleeping in the Blues Hostel, which is one of the best I've been too).

I am from Hong Kong. I have Kiwi citizenship and am thinking about relocating there. However, I have never really lived there and have only traveled briefly around NZ when I was young. The longest I have been in one western country is a month. I really like the way of life there but I understand that traveling around a country for a month is different from living there for years. I cannot just quit my job and stay in NZ for a couple of months just to see whether I will like it or not.

>>1146377 >I cannot just quit my job and stay in NZ for a couple of months just to see whether I will like it or not. Then it sounds like you don't have enough money in the bank to even consider relocating at this juncture in your life. When you are more secure financially to take some risk, say if you ended up unemployed for a year, and/or had to relocate a second time without income, then you could be ready.
In the meantime, you should immerse yourself in whatever you can find in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1146406 It's not that I have no money. It's more like quitting a job before finding another one seems a bit too risky. I guess I can surirve until I make new friends. I have been been that far away from my family but I guess I will be fine. So, no answers to my questions about cultural shock?
>>1146412 >So, no answers to my questions about cultural shock? It depends on you: your age (did you live in british HK?), your previous travel, social class and so forth. Most people like NZ, but will a non-anglo feel awesome? I honestly don't know with how it compares to say AU.
Hey /trv/ My bf and I are travelling through Europe later this month. Wanting to download a maps app/gps maps which we can make use of, whilst offline.

Moved to the UK and been living in Bristol for the last month. I don't know exactly why, but I don't like Bristol at all. I don't like it's layout (look at the google maps of Bristol City Centre for example), the suburbs are depressing as fuck, the weather is shit, lots of old buildings and old houses everywhere, which I dislike, dreary and depressing atmosphere everywhere. In short, I'm just not feeling it. Is all of the UK the same? Is there a city with a more modern feel and where the weather is a at least a little bit better? For reference... Comment too long.

OP here, also, residential areas are SO FUCKING QUIET. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm a loud troglodyte or anything like that, but man, they feel like ghost towns. I walk around the suburbs and rarely hear a single sound, everywhere feels so lonely and depressing.
