>>1057862 we have a Japan general up where that answer might get answered quicker, but generally speaking it's a very nice city. Relatively big, good food, nice temperature and some great natural places to visit. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask
Theoretically, if you gave in to that itch late at night to just get in your car and start driving, just to see what happens, where would you go?
I'm in the American South so I guess the cliche thing to do would be to go west until I hit the Pacific Coast, and then live like a hobo for a bit in LA or San Francisco until I came to my senses. Or maybe break down in the desert and die?
Does Europe have anything like that?
Does anyone know where they would go if they just packed their shit and left their life behind one day?
You ever been doing something boring and the thought just strikes you of wondering what it would be like to just pack your shit and move somewhere without telling anyone? A whole new life just to see what it would be like?
I'll be staying in a city that has recently seen a couple of foreigners murdered which have been claimed by IS. Any basic counter-intelligence kind of tips? I'll take different routes to and from my residence and try and wear a hood when I can, I'm a little paranoid.
I'm trying to save up enough money so I can go live and teach in a foreign country.
I've been sort of doing jack shit since graduating half a year ago and feel fucking lost in my home town.
I have about a thousand in cash. I was thinking of working really hard for a year while taking TEFL or TESOL classes. Doing odd jobs, working, and tutoring would hopefully let me be saved up after a year, I think.
I was wondering on how realistic this plan would be. I am thinking of moving to Taiwan or South Korea to go teach.

>>1057812 ESLfag here, was in Korea before, now in Japan. Biggest piece of advice is to not worry about a TEFL/TESOL/CELTA... Generally speaking you won't need it just to get your foot in the door. A bachelor's degree in any discipline is pretty much all it takes. You DO have to do a 100hr TEFL course to teach in Korean public schools now, but online is good enough--definitely don't waste your time or money on in-class TEFL shit or anything more intensive than a 100hr online class.

I want to move to Quebec for a few months and practice my French.
Where is a good place to stay and if it is possible work for a short time? Do they have hostels like Europe? Is it pretty expensive? I figure if I want to immerse myself, Quebec would be easiest since I live in the US and Haiti speaks Creole.
I've spent a year in Egypt (what a horrible country) and visit Mexico pretty often. What is Canada like and Quebec in particular?
If you're serious about learning French stay outside Montréal. People there switch to English the moment they think you're not comfortable speaking French. Go live in Québec city, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivière, Rimouski or if you realy have balls one of the towns further north. You will learn in no time.
If you absolutely must stay in Montréal go for the eastern side of the city. The west if just another boring version of Toronto.
Don't worry mate, I have a full proof system that I used in Egypt. I simply pretend not to know English and that I only know Spanish. Egyptians always switch to broken English but I got around it. It also helps that I'm brown.
What is wrong with the towns up north that I need balls for it?
>>1057670 >In my opinion, Angkor is massively overrated. Most ruins are like that. You'll find people disappointed by all of them. Get yourself really psyched up in history and archaeology, maybe even some fiction, so you can feel it come alive. It aint gonna be like in Indiana Jones, that's for sure.
Thats subjectivity for you because I thought Banteay Srei was the most boring and disappointing. Especially after the tuktuk took about an hour to get there and it bumped the cost of the day tour up to about $30
>>1057613 >booked a flight to Budapest on a whim. leaving tomorrow. Make a reservation at Spinoza to dine for the awesome music, a reservation for one evening at the Hospital in the Rock tour and maybe a restaurant there in the Castle, plan for 4 hours at Terror House, have a pastry at the cafe of your choice, book the reservation for a massage at one of the spas (fills up a couple days in advance) and pack something to make the spas easier (water shoes, beach towel, gym bag, padlock).

>Do you have jobs? Yes >How do you take so much time off? Had a lot of time stored up, but even if not, most European countries guarantee ~20 days paid leave. I took my leave during "off-easons" in mid-October, usually a lot of people can't be off at the same time, but I was alone in my office that wanted leave, so it was p. easy

Even though I have zero proof to back this claim, I would hazard to guess that /trv/ has one of the highest average age of all the boards.
I see a lot of people around age 18-20 posting here about WANTING to travel far more than really any other age (Note that I said WANTING to travel). I think what needs to be understood by those wanting to travel is that you (generally) need a bit of a foundation at home. Unless you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi all, I'm an Aussie looking to work in Canada sometime in 2016 and am trying to gather as much accurate info (and funds) as I can. My problem is all the info I'm finding is pretty conflicting. Some sources say to go with a company like Global Work & Travel Co, whereas some say they're a total scam and you're better off organising it yourself. Some sources also say applying for a working visa can take up to 4-5 years and you'll only be approved if you have savings of around $15,000 and a University Degree... Whereas.. my friend works in...

>>1057506 Also, if so, how did a classmate of mine get a job in Canada being a bricklayer with no further education after Year 12 (apart from his brickie apprenticeship), at the age of 19?? He's been living there for 3 years now working on construction sites...
Howdy All. Just moved to Virginia from New Mexico a few months ago, and I want someone to give me the low down of the east coast. I have a full six days off for christmas, and wanted to take a road trip with the lady. Anyone got some points of interested? any and all suggestions are welcome, but natural features preferred.
