Going to Lisbon for 2 weeks next month. Any advice for what to do over there e.g things to see, place to go, good places to eat and drink at etc. Also is there any place near Lisbon which would be worth going to? Thanks.

I haven't been in the country for the past year but last time I checked it was like 24€. You can probably get a better price and faster tavel taking a Ryanair flight from Lisbon to Porto honestly.

Are you allowed to sleep in airports? I'm going to be transferring airports in Tokyo and have about 14 hours to kill. Was wondering if I could spend some time in the city, then head to the terminal at about midnight and just sleep in a chair until I have to get up for my 7am flight.

Yes. It's very, very common and I've done it on my first flights, too.

I'd recommend checking out the airport you're flying into on this website:

The obvious things are to find a comfy bench that's not occupied in a well populated area, secure your valuables and don't oversleep for your flight in the morning. That's it really.

Are there any ways of getting to Africa from SEA that will cost me about 600 return, which is what I usually pay to get to SEA from Europe and then back.

I would consder any of these destinations: South Africa, Mocambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia.

Question.

What is the most friendly country for hunters to move to in europe. (Also the most gun friendly.) American here curious to see what the most gun friendly and hunting friendly country there is.

When I think hunting we are talking practical animals and varmints... hare, raccoons (do they exist in europe?), boar, deer, pheasant. Anything beyond that is stupid to hunt (bear, moose, etc...waste of time and endangering species.)

For practicality i can give you an idea what it is in the states. Midwestern states around the corn belt are very loose about...

Pole here and I can't say I'm surprised. There's quite a few hunters here, but more importantly, it's a hobby ridiculously overrepresented among politicians. This results in a strong lobby with a keen interest in keeping the law hunter-friendly.

Most interesting nature is in the north east, but that's not really accessible so I suggest you spend your time in the southern parts.

Almaty is the best for a mix of nature, city and night life and a good point to do day trips from.

Check out the mountains behind the city (pic related) just a short bus trip from the city center, make a trip to Charyn Canyon, (the Grand Canyon Jr) , visit some of the lakes, eat some horse and drink some kumyz at the green bazaar and get drunk with some Kazakh men...

I, too, think you have the wrong board nigga.

Is there a website that allows you to view airfare prices for a certain ticket, depending on what country you live in? Or is that practice just a myth?

For example: I live in NYC. I want to buy a roundtrip ticket from NYC to London. When I go to a website like Expedia, the website logs that I have a NYC IP address and therefore gives me the rate of $1300 roundtrip. However, I get on a Argentina proxy, go back to Expedia, which logs my IP from Argentina and the airfare is now only $900

I hitched to Nouakchott last year. Hippies do it on a weekly basis, judging from all the French names I saw in hotel guestbooks who give their occupation as 'Artiste'
Check out this badass girl's blog. She's giving it a better write-up than I could.

Is it dangerous? Not even slightly. Is it adventurous? Depends on your perspective. It's certainly unforgettable. I'd love to do it again and get to Dakar.

It's pretty necessary that you speak French. Otherwise the only thing I'd say is don't let anyone in morocco sell you cigarettes to smuggle south. Tobacco is actually cheaper the further south you go.

Guys I need some advice and I just get shit on in /int/.
I'm thinking of transferring from my PhD program to another overseas. The countries I'm interested in (largely due to a high HDI and good research/science dev.) are:
Norway, Japan, Australia, South Korea.
Does anyone have experiences, pros/cons of living there as an English speaker (I would of course learn the language over time) but this is a 6-7 year commitment to finish my degree.

I assume you're from the USA? I can give advice on Australia; it won't be 6-7 years, they will want you done in 4. The PhD programs don't have the same amount of coursework or exams as the North American system because the bachelor degrees are more concentrated. You obviously need to study up more on the differences in the programs. You can get a medium term residence permit once you graduate, that's one reason why Australia is so popular with international students, but investment in science is...

If you want to learn the language well, then don't do an asian country unless you plan on working as hard on that as you will your PhD.

Bro you are setting yourself up so hard for being one of those 45 year olds who gets to the end of his final post-doc contract @ 40k a year and then begins working at a grocery store when he can't get into industry.

Seriously re-evaluate your educational...

>What are the best places?
Cabo probably, but I spent all my time in Mexico City, Matamoros, and the Yucatan

>How is nightlife and girls there?
The night life will probably end in some indirect danger for you
>the girls
Regular girls either don't speak english, are in a relationship, or aren't interested in you unless you're...

>best places
Depends if you're interested in cultural places with pyramids, festivals, food; or tourist places with nightlife, beach. Some places offer both, like Mexico City or Yucatan. Oaxaca and Chiapas are amazing, and coastal cities like Puerto Vallarta or Isla Xolbox are also cool.
San Miguel allende and Guanajuato have pretty good night life with good girls, same for Queretaro and Puebla.

24 KB,
So yeah I basically lost my mind for a girl that I met in Italy, she's from Astana so I thought 'hell, why not going actually there?' . So there is still no plan, I dont know If while Im there I want to hop on a train and visit a bit more of the Country. Anyone been there? Any tips ? What should I expect? I read that if you fuck up even slightly you can easily get kicked off the country. Welp.
[Also the girl looks 98% as pic]

Have a backup plan bro if it doesn't work out you will be sad and fly home. Had a similar case I went to see a girl and made a huge trip out of it so I didn't care after I was rejected and had a great time
>>
Don't chase the pussy bro. Been there, done that, just don't.

That being said, Karakhstan is probably a pretty cool country to visit in summer so go for it and just make meeting the girl a side priority
>>
you are both right, I will try to change my mindset and try to create a cool schedule of things to do, the girl will be (eventually) the cherry on the top. Ive read around that the capital its a pretty new city in his economical boom, so hopefully in the summer there will be party and stuff
