I heard you guys know a thing or two about countries and stuff, so I'll just ask away.
I live in the prosperous land of Croatia, and I would like to attend university elsewhere in Europe.
Now seriously, I want to become independent and live by myself, but the problem is, you guessed it, money. Croatia is pretty corrupt regarding well, everything, including the universities, so I'd like to move.
Now, with all the religious crap going down in the Europe, where could I move and actually get some financial aid during my studies, to pay for the rent,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1075784 >Next I thought Germany, but then again they have the same thing going on as Sweden.
Stop reading so much /int/, basement dweller. DAAD is fairly generous if you reach a certain level of German. No one has anything about Balkans people, bro, as long as you're not muslim. And no, Germany is not as bad as Sweden, by far.
I'd avoid Austria only because it's so small. You've got Vienna, and... Graz? Salzburg? Honestly, there's not much going on in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>and I would like to attend university elsewhere in Europe Unless you get a scholarship or do some form of student exchange, which naturally requires straight A's and shit, you need to be pretty wealthy to do this. Which i know you aren't, fellow croatian
Do you know the language? Did you consider specific universities? Which ones? Or do you just plan to throw a fucking dart on the map? Your school ends in 5 months, and you need to know this shit well in advance. Why don't you go to Germany, if you know german like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1075777 If you're willing to stay in a hostel dormitory, accommodations in both countries can be had starting at around $5, although most are a bit more than that. Private rooms start around $15 but will likely be grim. Basic but decent 2-3 star places can be had for as low as $25 or so. Street food is in my experience slightly cheaper in Thailand than in Cambodia unless you speak Khmer and can access the local places (and even then you're going to be charged more than a local would be). Sticking to street stalls... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1075867 Pretty much this. I mean, there is some variation - in bkk and some smaller cambodian villages you can get a private room for $5 but good luck finding a dorm under $20 on koh phi phi, generallly though this guy's prices are on the ball.
Hey, first time here, figured someone here might have some experience with this. I was thinking about studying abroad some point in my college career, good idea or not?
I was thinking of England since I have a friend who lived there who said he liked it, and they speak English, also I've lived in Ireland a few years of my life so I know a bit about Weatern European functions. Good idea or bad?
Any advice, tips, comments, anything at ALL would be really appreciated!!
Always a good idea, and probbably an amazing experience regardless also nice to have on your CV. concidering you have enough money that is.
i have been studying abroad for about a year now, from Norway to New Zealand. its been an amazing experience and it feels really nice to be in a new place with little or no ties to Norway for me. mostly because of the +12 hours difference.
Not sure what the prosess is where you are from but check the requirements ASAP. i had to begin preperation 1 year in advance.
I studied in Thailand, 1 semester abroad covered 3 levels of language, or 9 credits and I forget if it was another 6 or 9 credits of sociology and other credits. Don't go to a place that speaks your language, branch out.
>>1075759 conveniently i'm english and gonna be studying abroad in america next year our universities are a bit more self directed learning oriented from what i can tell, you don't normally get homework apart from one or two essays and an exam, and you don't get that many contact hours, you're expected to do most of your studying in your own time.
i'd reccomend brighton, bournemouth, cardiff, edinburgh or manchester, don't go to london its expensive and shit
So I just interviewed for an ESL job, and during the interview the recruiter (who is Japanese) mentioned that Japanese men can be quite the pigs with harassment and all that, and told me to watch myself if I ever went to dinner or drinking with coworkers.
I was pretty surprised, she even said they were worse than Western guys. Anyone have any experience with this? I know about Japan's misogyny and the like, but this was actually surprising to hear.
So im 20 yo virgin eastern europeanfag and I want to un-alive myself but I wont die fuckless and before death I want have some adventures for week or two. In bank account I have 3000 euros. Any advice for travelling? It should be cheap 3rd world country with good hooker industry. Im thinking about Vietnam, Thailand or Philippines.
>>1075707 Nah fag i just wanted to say that i dont need ticket back so some extra money, and that i dont care about safety like aids, criminals and etc (but still wont die in very first day) so u fags could give me better advice
So I am in a SF going to this techno party tmr and I am just wondering where I could get some pills or molly here. Are there any guys standing outside of clubs dealing with it or this stuff doesnt happen here. Any suggestions in this matter /trv? Cheers!
Hey /trv/ let's talk about Japanese Encephalitis. I'm planning a trip across Western Europe (2 wk), Eastern Europe (2 wk), Japan (3 wk), South Korea (1 wk), China (7 wk), Vietnam (2 wk), Thailand (2 wk), Laos (1 wk) and Cambodia (1 wk) from July 1st until December 20th of this year. I finished all my other vaccines today, but this JE vaccine has been a thorn in my side, and wanted to know what others have done. People seem to fall about 20% in favor of being vaccinated and the other 80% do without. My doctor said it wasn't necessary, as well as most people online,... Comment too long.

>>1075590 Above poster is right that the risk of JE is almost vanishingly small. But the disease does still exist in rural Southeast Asia, and it has a roughly 25% fatality rate. So you almost certainly won't get it. But if you are profoundly unlucky and DO get it, you have a one in four chance of dying from it.

>>1075590 Honestly, since there is a vaccine, I'd get it. There isn't much treatment they do for encephalitis (whatever the cause), and high likelihood of dying. I'd consider 25% damn high. In my locality (Miami), people die from this all the time throughout the year from basic viral encephalitis. They even go to the E.R., get sent home, and die in a few hours. It's just that insane, probably witness about 3 deaths every few months, like kids in high schools. Yet, at the same time, as a Florida native, I... Comment too long.

Has anyone here ever gone through post-travel depression? If so, how did you shake it?
I spent a year and a half travelling through Australia and New Zealand by myself and had the time of my life. Now I've returned home, and I'm really having a difficult time becoming a functioning member of society again. Even before I came home, I had big plans of getting a job right away, joining a gym and getting back into good shape. But I've been back for nearly 3 months already, and I haven't done jack shit but smoke weed and sit on my ass. I'm living with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Starting this Saturday, non-residents will be able to stay in China for a whole six days without a visa, according to a ruling by China's Ministry of Public Security.
The policy decrees that foreigners entering China via Shanghai, Hangzhou (Xiaoshan International Airport), Nanjing (Lukou International Airport) can take advantage of the new 144-hour visa scheme, providing they're transiting to another country afterwards. They can also depart China from any of these ports of entry.
Oh, but you have to be from one of the following 51 countries:

>>1075545 >So I'm planning on using the trans siberian railroad and finishing in Beijing. So if I do that I only got three days to fuck around? That is lame Assuming you're heading into Beijing from Vladivostok by rail, no, you don't even have three days. The 72hr program is only valid if you're entering Beijing by air. You'll need to buy a visa anyway.
South African passports get fucked again for no reason. We can travel visa free to Hong Kong, Ireland, Singapore, New Zealand, all of South America etc. but we can't be trusted on mainland China. So much for BRICS!
I have time off of work in the middle of Feb to the beginning of March and I would like to use this time to visit somewhere in Australia. Departing from Sydney with about a $1000AUD budget. I have been to the usual (Gold Coast, Melb, etc) so I would like to go somewhere different and remote.
Hey everyone. For the longest time possible, I've been wanting to leave this shithole of a country (United States) and move to Saudi Arabia. I am a young Muslim with socialist and traditional values and I need some advice to live in Saudi Arabia. Any thoughts?
Pick just about any other Muslim country but Saudi Arabia. If you insist on Saudi Arabia then move to Dammam. It's close to the border with Bahrain, so when you realized how bad you fucked up you can drive across the causeway for some respite
