Recently my family decided to go on a trip abroad, and we are currently going over possible destinations.
Since the people going are my aunts (2), my uncle, possibly a cousin or two and my father, I started thinking about going places that are both a little less known but also family friendly; Full of sights and places to see and visit.
After a little research, I decided on northern Europe and Baltic Sea area; More specifically, Latvia, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Denmark, Greenland, Norway and Sweden.
I would like to hear your opinions... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Afternoon op. I'm from England and have been to bc once and plan to travel back next May however I'll be heading north to Alaska "anchorage and Fairbanks" I found the scenery around bc very plentiful however staying in the busy cities of bc are bloody expensive. Stay away from Vancouver not much to see there. Are you interested in snow sports ? If so bc is great place for said activities. If you are just looking for long walks/backpacking on tails them just hit up national parks they have so many in bc and have trails that you can follow via map and marked... Comment too long.

Vastly superior to a hotel but the good ones are not cheap. Look for a host that has time to hang out. Find one that seems to have similar interests. The host is far more important than the actual room. Ladies if a host seems to be single and male with no mention of a GF, that means you probably can hook up if the chemistry is good. Guys do not really hook up with female hosts. Sorry , thats not how it works.
Cons: asshole neighbors force your host to threaten you to kick you out
Hongdae in Seoul, we were playing music at a moderate volume before going out and immediately our host texted us we should keep the noise down. A few days later an apartment two stories up does a house party with blaring music, laughter and screams for hours.
>>1055639 Mexianon here. U will be cool unless u seek for troubles mate. Never trust anyone. Can u speak spanish? Which cities will u visit?

Take into account since December 12th many mexican eople start holidays in this failed shitholish country
We (my gf and I, both early 30s) are staying at the Aria. Should I even bother trying to tip the check in clerk in an effort to get a complimentary upgrade? I've read that the check in line at Aria is long and slow, and then they have an online checkin system that moves much faster. We land at 12:05, and the fighter weigh ins are at 3pm, so we're going to be in a bit of a rush.
I've read that California medical marijuana users can use their recommendation in Vegas, but I've yet to read solid instructions on how to go about it. Can someone please explain... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It might be different for you, but I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in December 2012 and that weekend after I graduated me and a buddy drove out to Vegas for a roadtrip. Pretty much right at the same time you'll be there.
I was shocked at how empty Vegas was in December.
I know they throw big Christmas and New Years parties but early to mid December the city was almost a ghost town.
Of course you're going for a specific event so things might be different.
Also, we were both expecting to see girls our age a fair bit, but for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1055572 How long are you going to be in the area for? Going anywhere else in Indonesia?
I don't have too much advice that I can give you for Bali unfortunately. I went there with my parents for a few days, and we were definitely on the main tourist path. Some of the big draws are the temples like the one you posted, and it really shouldn't be hard to get that organized.
If you've got 4-5 days to spare and you're the more outdoorsy type, I'd really recommend hiking Mt. Rinjani. It's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I returned from my first ever trip a few days ago. I spent 2 months in Thailand and Cambodia. It was very tough emotionally at times as I'm a massive introvert. But overall, it was a great experience and the main thing I have learnt from it is that if you commit to something, you can absolutely make it happen. I know its a cliche thing to say but it really does feel like it was all a dream now. I got up this morning and saw my backpack and daypack lying empty on my bedroom floor and I can't believe it actually happened. I lived out of them for 2 whole months. All the... Comment too long.

Oh, sure. I completely get where you're coming from, and I'm sure that a lot of other people on this board would, too.
Like the folks above me said, what you need to do is this: save more money, buy another ticket, and go some place new.
Traveling helped me build my confidence, social skills, and a soft network of friends across the world. I've wound up working here and there overseas and will be completing university at home in another two semesters. I've worked a lot to afford... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Going to be headed to Portland, Oregon next month with friend. Anticipate spending some of the time outside/wandering around until we get set up with jobs. Was looking for something like in picture but for $30 or less. Also, any tips regarding traveling and temporarily living on the streets welcomed. Can't really find anything online that isn't just a plain canvas duffel bag for cheap.
Sort of off topic, but just want to warn you that you and your friend will be one of a few thousand homeless already looking for a job. It's not an easy city to find work, because it's a prime destination for people who are trying to do exactly what you're doing. It's a great city with a lot to do, but come with some emergency money so you don't get into serious trouble.
Many women teach ESL abroad. For younger kids/kindergarten, etc. you will be actually favored over men. I worked for AEON (a big language school company in Japan) for a year. The other foreign teacher at my school was a woman. Most Japanese English teachers in Japan are women. You are creating things to worry about.
You are only 20. Do you have a bachelor's degree? If not, that will be the biggest impediment to you being hired rather than being a woman.
>>1055418 I will also say be careful with the job offers you have coming in. You may or may not know, but ESL can be a very scummy industry. People are often exploited and taken advantage of. This is not so much the case in Japan, but it happens often in Korea, China and elsewhere. If you don't mind where you are placed, I'd highly recommend trying to get a public elementary school job in Korea (The public school jobs are great--if you keep an open mind and just smile and play the dumb, interested foreigner card always--everything should go smoothly). The public school foreign teacher program was scaled back massively a couple years ago, but I think it still exists in some capacity. There are only elementary school jobs available. Bluntly speaking-- single white women are the most in demand for elementary school jobs. They will be more competitive than they used to be, because of the cutbacks in positions, but if you can get a job they are quite good. You get a free apartment, a decent paycheck. Basically very comfortable and you can save lots of money. Especially if you are not a go out and party kind of person. I was in Korea in a public junior high before Japan, and it was great.
>>1055422 I have an associates in communications (in which I plan on further completing online) and a certificate from the Harvard Extension School, also took 2 years of Arabic at a language school in my city.
Guys, russian here, i'm asking would it be interesting for you as foreigners now to visit some rare places in Russia with guides in company of me and my friend? We could help with translating, visas, defense, weed and guidance. Our rouble is fallen so everything is very cheap for europeans and americans. It would be enough of 500-600 dollars for example to have nice trip without jet ticket price for 2 weeks. How do you rate this idea? Would you try this?
In 6h you can see all of the main sights and get back to the CBS. Take U2 subway line to Alexanderplatz, then walk -> Nikolaiviertel -> Museumsinsel -> Babelplatz -> Gendarmenmarkt -> Checkpoint Charlie -> Potsdamer Platz -> Tiergarten -> Reichstag -> Brandenburger Tor
Noob here who has never really done much travelling.
Wanting to head to the US for my first trip to get a taste for it. There are a few main things I'd like to see, but I'm struggling on finding things to fill in the gaps. I'll have about 3 weeks free in June where I'll be in the US east coast and I'd like to do as much as possible. Is this enough time? Any recommendations?
I've heard that Niagra Falls is best viewed from the Canadian side... How easy is it to go from the US into Canada and then back to the US?
Can you clarify whether you are looking for additional cities/stops between the three you show or things to do at the three locations you are planning to visit?
I've only ever seen the falls from the US side, and an excursion boat in the middle, and they are pretty impressive whether or not you go into Canada. Since I've never crossed the border there, I have no info on how the process works. I would guess it is as easy there as anywhere, given the number f folks visiting the falls and wanting to see it from all sides.
If you have citizenship in one of the right countries, it is pretty easy. The US allows citizens of the 38 visa waiver countries to make short trips to Canada or Mexico, counting the time spent as part of the allotted 90 days. Canada lets citizens of many countries visit without a visa, if visiting by land
On the other hand, if your citizenship is from, say India, things may be more difficult.
I last visited about 30 years ago.. At the time, the crossing was easy for a US citizen, and the view from Canada was superior. Things could have changed since then.
So me and my friend want to travel around UK. Destinations: London->Glasgow->Belfast->Dublin->Cork We have many places we wnat to visit but can someone recommend us some places in Central england we should visit?
I'd look into Derry (Londonderry, or in recent PR stuff Legend-Derry) in addition to or instead of Belfast. You get the same sense of the history of The Troubles, in a smaller and I thought more enjoyable setting.
