I don't know shit about credit cards other than I have a basic discover card for cash back and building "credit". I want to rack up miles or whatever I can passively do to make every penny count. I treat my card like a debit card so I never miss a payment and never pay interest. What do yall use?
If you're going to get a credit card for travel rewards, make sure you get one that offers a good bonus for spending a certain amount of money in the first few months, and that you can spend that much.
Also make sure it offers no foreign transaction fees and no annual fee, unless your spending is high enough to warrant a card with an annual fee.
You might be better off simply using a card that gives you cash back and using that money for travel, but it depends on your spending habits.
>>1061110 Hrm, well, say a Delta SkyMiles or gold/platinum gets you free checked bags, that's worth quite a bit more at $150 a pop than a free upgrade worth only $50-75. Combine it with free travel insurance when you use it to book, waivers on CDW, added insurance or lengthed warranties when purchasing electronics, or checking bags that might get loss, and really the perks are wayyy more valuable than any kind of free travel you think you'll get.

I've been many places, but now my feet are sore. I'd like to go some place and stay for a while. I hoping to get residency somewhere, and I'm hoping it helps that I have a PhD. It is from a fairly good school, but not in an area with high demand (psychology). I know generally the regular immigration laws of countries and which are easier, but would anyone know of countries where my PhD might help me get in?
>>1060987 >but would anyone know of countries where my PhD might help me get in? Most countries care more about where you are from now as your citizenship, more than anything else. As a well-traveled person, it's surprising to me you don't know that already.
>>1061182 I think you're looking at it wrong. I think you need to find the reason to go to a country first, then go to that country. The reason is going to be that there was some sort of fellowship that you applied for from your hom e country. I live in Thailand and my doctor here has had fellowships in both Germany and the US.
OK I'm in DC for 7 more day, I don't have a lot of money, but I'm looking for things to do that are educational, fun, and relatively inexpensive. What should I do while I am here, what should I go and see?
- The Smithsonians are free - Adams Morgan is cool for food - Vintage consignment stores
everything is really expensive. There is a little pop up Christmas market right near the Spy Museum though, mostly shitty native american jewelry and overpriced leather goods, but cool to check out nonetheless.
I was planning a trip in August for my birthday, and i was wondering where to go. I keep thinking japan or Canada but i don't think either are what i want, i was thinking of Germany but idk, would like a recommendation for a location to do some solo sightseeing or some kind of soul-searching, possibly even some kind of prostitute hunt. I really don't know but I have to give myself something to look forward to
Is this trip possible? My plan would be to fly in, buy a car (one I can sleep in) in Portugal, and then sell it in Russia. I'm mostly curious if I could pull off buying in Portugal and selling in Russia at a reasonable rate of return.
>>1060957 The trip itself is easily doable up to the belarussian border. Belarus is very restrictive with visa but i suppose it's possible to get one, same thing in russia though less extreme. i doubt that you will be able to sell the car in russia and if you intend to leave it there you will have to get a lot of permits etc., work through tons of paperwork, possibly corruption and bribes to be able to import it to the country.
>>1060959 I would go through Latvia and Estonia I think because I wouldn't need a visa for either. Is there a particular country closer to my destination I could sell it in? I was thinking I could sell it in Poland and then just take a train after that, but then again, couldn't I just sell it off for cheap in Russia too?
From what I've heard on /trv/, most ESL teachers return after a year or two as the pay is not that good. Based on this article the pay seems pretty good though: http://www.besudesuabroad.com/2014/06/teaching-english-in-hong-kong/
Your cited article is mostly bullshit, a best-case scenario with at least one significant omission. You'll notice that she claims utilities cost nothing (bullshit), spends only US$10/day on food (bullshit, unless you plan on eating the cheapest, unhealthiest crap every day), doesn't drink or go out at all (YMMV), and doesn't pay to commute (YMMV). She also conveniently ignores income tax, which does exist in Hong Kong. If you have a normal lifestyle and don't live like a monk (if you do, might... Comment too long.

Yes, you can, but if you want to make a career of it, you have to approach it with a professional mindset, as you would if you were a teacher at home. The rewards and possibilities in some ways can be greater internationally though.
So what I mean is - yes, first, jump in, get what experience you can get, even if everything about your first postings aren't great. But consider professional advancement - maybe get a proper high-level teaching (and not just TESL/TEFL) qualification in your own country later on - and when you're more experienced be discriminating...

So I'm getting conflicting information on the topic of bringing girls back to your hotel room in Vietnam.
I'm not talking about prostitutes, but regular girls. I had a friend tell me it's illegal to have a girl spend the night in your hotel room. Now I'm reading through some forums about the subject, and some are saying it's illegal while others say it's a thing of the past.
Does anyone here know if this is true or not? I couldn't find any concrete evidence.
Sup /trv/ So i am planing to go and study english on Australia (My boyfriend lives there) I presonally think i have a medium-hig/hig level of english. So gonna travel there to study. Now how's the economical situation there? I bet i have to start working there along with my studies.
>Image non related. But wonder if anyone else have noticed this shit on an airplane?
>>1060885 Expensive as fuck. Pretty much everything is stupidly expensive but rent and alcohol most of all. On the other hand, local wages are pretty high (minimum wage of $21/hour, higher on weekends etc) and it's easy to find work if you've got even basic skills. I did some bar work when I was over there and it was great, good culture in most venues and almost $30/hour pay.
>>1060895 Mainly studying english and getting experience on my main career (Gastronomist) Also visiting my boyfriend for a long period of time. >>1060894 You realized there's an ash holder right underneath the sign right?
Hey /trv/ I just applied to do a language assistanchy in spain next year, I put andalucia as my first choice, aragon as my second and navarre as the third. I'm only now realising that I should've asked here first, what do you guys think of my choices? any one who has done this sort of thing before have any tips? just general questions i suppose?
Do you have any advice for a 19 year old hoping to make money off his laptop and to travel a lot of the time? Or am I just being unrealistic with myself. Is it better to just go place to place finding jobs?
Is it too expensive to maintain the "travel life" and work online, should it just be a cheap place like SEA and go from there?
Has anyone managed to achieve this dream of mine? I'm not materialistic, i'd rather spend the time I have on earth to see as much as I can. I'd only settle down when i'm older (around 26-30) I've lived... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Wish I could offer you something more substantial OP, but when I was traveling through SE Asia, I hung out with a German guy who had been doing this for 6 years. He was really fucking bizarre, but he worked remotely in either programming or IT and relocated every 3-4 months. Your area of study is definitely useful here.
All my survival experiences have been good. Better than my death experiences.
My brother and I were rock climbing at Red Rock Canyon. Hung around on the top for a bit, took pictures, viewed what little of the Strip you can see from up top. It was nice. Getting down wasn't as nice however. We were never in any serious trouble, but going up is always easier than going down. There were a few spots were we had to kinda convince ourselves to jump down, or I'd have to carefully get down, and then help him.
I didn't hear it, but my parents just hung... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
