Just got back from traveling Germany in a rental car, but received a parking ticket (10 euro) along the way. Think it was for not using some kind of window-displayed clock(?) while parked (no signs or notifications about this anywhere, so can't figure out why I got the ticket). However, i also have no idea how to pay it. They gave me a bank account where the money can be transferred, but I obviously don't have a Euro bank account. The rental company is useless because they want to me to have pay their "administrative fee" ($50 to pay the ticket for me) rather... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Seems like a really strange way to do parking. There literally wasn't a single sign anywhere in the town about it. Regardless, how would I pay it? I don't have a bank account in Euros and an international wire transfer would cost many times what the actual fee is.
>>1047190 Tour package was like 950$ or something. it was 4 days 5 nights. Had to get in via Tumen in northeast China, so I booked a flight from USA to Yanji that was about 900$ or so. You can get there cheaper, but I'm on holiday from work so I can't be flexible with the days, therefore flight was the easiest and quickest option. There are a few souvenir shops, but I spent no more than about 60-80$. There is not much to buy. I tried to get a Korean at the art gallery to sell me a propaganda painting, but she said...

ITT: we convince people to travel to metro areas that most would be reluctant to visit.
Family-friendly places: Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village: largest indoor-outdoor museum complex in the USA (emphasis on US industrial history in late 1800s-early 1900s). From there, you can also get tours of the nearby Ford Motor Company River Rouge Plant, where you can see cars being made on an assembly line.

>>1047148 Detroit is nicknamed the Motor City. You need a car to get everywhere, just like most places in the USA. There are millions of places where you can easily rent cars, including at Detroit International Airport.
They do have an elevated people mover in downtown, though, and they will be opening a light rail route up the length of Woodward Avenue, the city's main street, in a few years.
im hoping to move to washington (state) at the end of this year. im looking particularly for urban areas, dont have to be huge though. id consider more of a smaller town if it was really unique and cute and artsy and naturey. so, basically im looking for just unique, interesting, creative cities/towns, with beautiful nature around. i definitely DEFINITELY dont want anything suburbian and cookie cutter. yuck. i want a place with a great personality that will match mine. i really want seattle, but of course im broke af and cant afford it. here are some other places i want to research,...

>>1046947 Depends on from where to where you want to go. surprisingly, for my last few inner-european flights, lufthansa was always the cheapest option. The infomaous ryanair does indeed offer some really, really cheap tickets, but if you got to spend 100€ and half a day to actually get to your shitty airport in bumfuck nowhere to start, and the same to get from your destination airport to your real destination, their ticked aint so cheap anymore.
Any advice on traveling through Ethiopia? I have a flight booked next Saturday to Addis. I have family that I will meet for the first time in Bahir Dar. What are some other cities to visit? Things to do?
Ill be there for 3 months. I'm interested in hiking, camping, wildlife, eating kitfo and tibbs and smoking pot.
I would consider myself a budget traveler. How much can you expect to spend a day on food and accommodation?
>>1046933 If you're a darkie, I guess it will be easier to blend in. White folks stand out, for better and worse. On the other hand, once people realize you're a "rich" westerner, it'll be the same expectation that you give them money. Often, 'white' = rich, western, regardless of skin colour.
Overall it's a poor shite country desu, but one of the better ones in the region in terms of stability and economic growth (for what that's worth). Don't need to tell you to stay... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1046714 >Anyone have experience with the i-to-i online TEFL course? Perhaps commiting to CELTA. will be more favourably looked upon by employer?
Funnily enough I have done both. I Did The i-to-i Online in the UK but wasn't entirely happy with it so did the CELTA in Bangkok with International House.
The i-to-i Certificate isnt worth the paper its written on and It would be better for you to buy a couple of good books, read some free online lesson plan guides and forge the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'll also add that with the i-to-i you do get a one day training thing in person, but it is very basic. I asked the i-to-i trainer about her thoughts on the CELTA and she recommended it to me whole heartedly.
>>1046714 Online TEFL courses are always absolute garbage, and every employer worth their salt knows it. You cannot learn TEFL online, it's impossible, you need class experience and at least some in-person coaching, which is what something like CELTA does. Online courses only exist to take money from the naive and gullible. Some bottom-of-the-barrel employers may accept it in China, but otherwise all that kind of trash will get you nowhere.
Obviously, in desperate places, they'll accept whoever and whatever... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So lets talk about booze and travel. What's your favorite drink when traveling? Do you guys seek out locally made alcohol or drinks that are popular in the given region when you travel there? What drinks have you tried abroad for the first time and then started drinking them when you got back home?
I don't usually drink sweet alcohol drinks, pretty much drink beer 90% of the times I drink any alcohol but when I went to the Caribbean I totally loved all the mixed drinks they made there. The mojitos there were so much better than the ones I have back here, maybe... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Real absinthe in Spain. I usually smuggle a few bottles back stateside. Porto wine I had in Lisbon was awesome. Wines in Italy were great, and there was this crazy wine in Italy, I think it was homemade, it was at some dude's house. You'd be stuffed, drink it, then be read for the next course. Ate for hours.
>>1046772 Also, for Thailand, though Chang seems to be the farang beer of choice, I much prefer Singha. My first time having a Strongbow was in Spain, but too sweet for me to drink regularly. Only have drunken it when abroad, though not just Europe. I'm American, if I haven't mentioned. I drank Dahl's beer in Norway and took a Dahl's glass home from the bar/club. Which is another habit I have. I have a Strongbow glass as well. In fact, almost every glass I have either came from a bar, restaurant, liquor gift... Comment too long.

>>1046772 >>1046776 I think Blue Frog is my favorite thing I come across. Long Island Ice Tea has nothing on this. This is a very popular club drink in the Middle East, at least in the countries that allow alcohol (Bahrain/UAE). The youtube video saus it's from Serbia, but I don;t know the actual origins. There is another variation called Red Frog. Bluw frog is essentially a bunch of liquors mixed together, but you can't tast the alcohol so you get pretty fucked off... Comment too long.

But I can't find anything documenting their hygine habits online anywhere.. I figure it'd be interesting to know how much these people bathe, what soaps they use if any.. toothpaste, shampoo, if it's common in those areas to clean your pooper with water rather than toilet paper. If they use mouthwash or any other products... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Kiwi here. You will definitely want to check out Kaikoura, which is in the South Island. Amazing little town with so much to do. The biggest city in the South Island is Christchurch and it's a shit hole. Spend as little time there as possible.
What would be the best time to visit in between May and August? I'm thinking of getting married there and spending a week or two there on a honeymoon, and we really want our anniversary to be in late spring or summer.
Not really. I've been to several dozen countries. While there were places I enjoyed significantly more than others, I don't think I have any major regrets or complaints. I was incredibly disappointed by Athens - it was such a filthy and rotten city, and that's coming from somebody who's enjoyed a lot of countries less developed than Greece.
But I wouldn't "take back" that excursion if I could. Likewise, while Iceland was beautiful, I don't view it as being a very memorable place. Again, though, I'm happy I went and still have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I read heaps about the history and fell in love with it. The country, however, felt like it lacked a certain sense of adventure since the gov wants you to stick to the main tourist sites and having to register at your hotel every night. It also surprised me how done up all the cities were for tourists. It was pretty easy mode to travel. Uzbeks are sound though and I like vokda and shashlyk, so I made the most out of it.
Unless you have a raging hard on for Islam architecture, I don't know if the $150 visa is justified.
