What is there to do in this city? I'm from buffalo and I'm going to Toronto, Canada in a couple weeks to see a Yankees game. Ironically Toronto is considerably closer than New York City so I'm going to cross the border to see a game.
I'm coming with my brother and our girlfriends, we're considering staying a night or 2 and maybe stay for the whole series.
What's some stuff to do in Toronto? I've looked at basic tourist websites but I want some first hand info

Is the CN tower worth seeing? The aquarium? The brewery? Bars and night...

CN tower is expensive but it's something to do I guess. If you make a reservation at the 360 restaurant getting up is free. The restaurant rotates around so you get a 360 view. If you want to shell out for something thrilling do the edge walk. Its a good adrenalin rush
Rogers centre is pretty underwhelming, the aquarium is cool, I'd say on par with the one in Chicago. Night life would be King Street west area
Also Toronto doesn't have many shitty hotels, even the 3 stars are nice

Where have you taught? Was it worth it?

I'm currently thinking of chilling in the Philippines for a month or two before going to teach in South Korea. My problem though, is that I want to just up and do it when I'm done my vacay but I hear it's a stupidly long process, like up to 4 months. This seems insane. Anyone have experience with hiring processes? How long did it take?

It varies.

Apply for job that starts around the time you want your holiday to end. Bring all the shit you may need for the job on holiday.

I heard Korea is a lot of bother to get in to these days... I know people who are US-based that are having to get FBI background checks for their schools. (Maybe that's only the international schools though and no-one cares for hagwons?)

Check that you don't need to do it at the Korean embassy in your country, too. It would be shit if you had to fly back home just to get the visa.

I'm going to go to the Korean embassy where I live and report back on what they say.

My big goal here was to just leave whimsically and stay floating around travelling for a longass time, but that can only be possible if it doesn't take a big long hassle to get into new countries while I'm abroad

I taught in sk. Pretty much all schools require an fbi background check and it has been that way for a while now. Make sure you dont get a shitty school. Do your research and ask to email a teacher before taking any job.

Hello /trv/

Is there anywhere to live without contributing to evil? By evil I'm speaking of:

>War
>Exploitation of poor people and other countries
>Killing/harming of animals
>Contributing to pollution

Both direct and indirect contributions count (i.e. taxes going to war is contributing to the war).

Basically, is there some Tolstoyan utopian community I'm not aware of?

I've been there in 2005, 4 days each capital, and I've been in Saint Petersburg twice. Here are my thoguts:

- Vilnius and Tallinn are really beautiful, but 4 days are too much. 2, max 3 days are enough.
- Once in Vilnius, pass in Trakai.
- Riga is boring. 2 days max.
- In Saint Petersburg, spare a day only to Hermitage and another only to Peterhoff.

It depends what you're doing. If you're hiking, or cycling and camping in the countryside that's fine, but if your just visiting the cities it too much unless you add Russia; the capitals of each Baltic country are nice but as the other anon said, two days max. Russia is a hassle to get a visa for; so look into it well in advance.

What do you want to see and do while in Europe? What kind of travel do you prefer? When you aay you're planning to rough it out, what do you have in mind specifically?

I've travelled all western europe usually without money, so I know what I think as roughing it out, but on a 800€ monthly budget I think your anticipation and forethought on rough might be a little different than mine.

Quite impossible, senpai.

Travel costs alone (planes, buses, trains) will bleed you dry. Then comes a roof above your head. Then comes food. Then comes basic necessities and toiletries. And this is in a scenario where you can't afford to buy a pack of gum.

If you want more detailed info, post your itinerary/travel wishlist.

Well, there's a reason all the Poles leave Poland. There's enough money to satisfy whatever basic needs you have, but not much left for luxuries. Imagine all the fun things back at home costing three, four times as much and you have a good comparison for the purchasing power you'll have with your remaining money. Of course if you get paid an American or whatever foreign wage while living in Poland, you'll live like a king. Traveling isn't a problem - if I can do it, so can you. Don't expect...

Hey /trv/.

So I've spent the last 4-ish months in Mexico teaching kids english. I have to leave the country to renew my US tourist visa and get another 6 months of permitted time in Mexico.

I need to leave early july, and can only get a few (4-5) days off teaching. Having a hard time finding round trip flights to my home state (Indiana) for less than $375-400. This seems rather steeper than normal.

Anyone recommend some search tools or strategies to get cheaper flights? I am willing to deal with ridiculously early flight departures/arrivals.

Imperial War Museum North is very good; the People's Museum is good too, but takes a very left-wing view (although seeing as it's on the site of the Peterloo Massacre...)

The Manchester Art Gallery has some nice local boy Lowry paintings. The Science & Industry is pretty cool too, if you're into machines and engineering.

There are free buses all through the centre of the city, so no excuse not to get around.

Finland has lots of nature available everywhere and it's a huge part of local interaction and probably the greatest part of experiencing the country, but other than that I wouldn't recommend spending two years if you don't have anything solid to do here.

And I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for when you say 'cool', but Finland at summer isn't anywhere as cold as people seem to think. It can and will be as high as 35 degrees Celsius, and at most sunny days it'll be around 25.

I plan to study design. The place seems like a dream, sans the money aspect

>>1114838
My studies would take up most of my time. Do you think I would run out of things to do there?

My travel/backpacking clothes tend to start stinking after a few weeks out on the road. I know everyone recommends merino wool but it is both expensive and too heavy in terms of packing weight and hotness in the heat. Polyesters/Nylons are cooling, lightweight, and dry fast but they start smelling like absolute death.
Cotton is completely shunned by the travel community but I wonder if I took a bunch of solid white cotton t-shirts I could just bleach them in the sink every few days to avoid the stink and get rid of stains?

Does this sound like a good idea?

Cotton a shit, wool a best. Look for lightweight merino t-shirts. Merino blends have acceptable smell resistance.

Or you could, you know, wash the clothes. Don't they make a detergent concentrate?
>>
>>1114773
I do wash them, they smell regardless

I mainly use cotton/poly blends. If I go full poly they smell like absolute death even after washing.

Merino is great but at $40/pop it's a hard pill to swallow. Also, wool wears out pretty fast, especially with a backpack on and you've got to wash it like the baby jesus
>>
>>1114771
Cotton isn't smartly shunned as travel clothing entirely, it just doesn't help against hypothermia when wet/damp if that is an issue for your travels ("death picks cotton"). It's comfortable, breathable and healthy on the skin so it has its purpose, and is alright in a wool blend, but it can take more than overnight if airdrying.

It's the poly and non-gortex nylon that smells, because I think down on the microscopic level it's pretty porous with little exchange like the plumping that happens with natural stuff, so soap doesn't really wash it out..memory. It's why they dry fast too, though.

Try a brand called Ibex or look to Patagonia. You could also pack some of the Sport Tide or a washing bag that scrubs the hell out of it. Or just pay for some hotel laundry, and skip the sink and air dry. Heat drying kills bacteria too, and resets those fibers and wrinkles.

so i think i kinda wanna make this road trip (solo i guess) in the next few weeks.

google says its a 30hr drive, but im only 12hr from denver so i think i might try to stop there too (if i follow through with this which is the point of this thread) but is there another cool spot between denver and oregon that i could/should stop at as well?

Advice... yes and no. If you can get into shearing (well, technically rousing, which is a fancy word for picking up wool) you'll be onto a pretty good wicket. Very hard work, but easy enough to pick up. I make about $1,000 a week doing that, most of the work is over summer. You usually get fed as part of the deal, and a lot of the shearers follow the work so there's always somewhere you can stay.
Generally farmwork in Aus, at least where I'm from Victoria) is over the summer, so Dec-Apr, the rest...

I don't like going to pubs and clubs alone, and I feel like I would maybe see the city and do some shopping one day, then just sit in the hotel room bored getting stoned, drunk and...

I'd look up if there are any things like festivals (food, film, music, whatever) going on, check out places to eat, try to find any cool nature spots... those are all the ideas I have I think.
I'd go for it, it might get lonely but idk. It'd still be a break from your regular life. Which city are you from, out of curiosity? I'm melb

I've looked up a couple things that will be going on at around that time, but there's not really a lot I actually want to do. One of my biggest concerns is simply that; start off doing things I want, get lonely and bored and waste all my time doing nothing. I was going to pay for a friend of mine to come down so I'd have someone to go to clubs/shows with but he couldn't get any time off work. This will realistically be my first holiday since I was a child so I'm pretty keen, and after the last...

I don't suppose any of you have ever done this, but I just recently joined the military. I figure I'm going to save my cash, and before I go into college, I'll finish the journey with either a friend or a stranger. Any tips?

>drive through eastern Ukraine

How long do you think this will take? How much do you think it would cost?

Cause I'd be totally game to do this with you, depending on the time of year/timeline.

When I say stranger, I mean someone I barely know, like an acquaintance from high school or something. Sorry for the vagueness.

From what I've seen about it online, it can get dangerous in parts.

I am over the age of 18. If I use my own money for a trip and decide to meet an online friend when I am there without telling my parents, does my parents have the right to be angry if they find out?

Anyone here have any experiences with different national parks in the US and Canada?? Which ones are so exquisitely breathtaking that they're worth traveling across the country for? Which ones are just kind of mediocre? The only one I've been to is Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and it doesn't really seem like much compared to the photos of the other national parks I've seen.

Hrm, might need to change your question as to what about it that constitutes a national park appeals to you, because they all had a purpose at the time of their creation...whether some kind of set aside wilderness to protect some natural wonders and species, soaring peaks vs mediocre hills, huge waterfalls....it quite varies. After all, Biscayne national park is to protect a reef and some mangroves, and you need a boat to visit. and the Everglades have a few access points and pretty amazing or pretty boring, depends...

Hi /trv/, I'm in year 11 and am going on a 10 month student exchange to Japan in August. My host school is in Kyoto and my home stay will most likely be located around that area. My Japanese is only basic (probably JLPT N5). Any advice or pointers, things to do, etc? Would be much appreciated, thanks.

It is so low you probably cant communicate there

N5 can be passed within a month of studying Japanese most days. Its ridiculously basic.
Make sure you take Japanese classes while there and spend as much time away from other foreigners as you can stand to help improve your Japanese.

I just got to know that my workplace is sending me to Malta, where I'll spend 3 months, September-October-November and will work in a full-time job in La Valletta.
However my work can't even suggest me an accomodation, and even if it could I'd still would like to get all kinda info about this country.
So please if you know anything share it, if you can suggest something it's even better. I've got about 1000 eur a month for everything so have to keep it cheap.

I have detailed knowledge of the area and I can answer any question you might have.
I can also help you find suitable accomodation in a good area, or steer you in the right direction on things like hiring a car.

If you want my help, post a throwaway and I will get back to you.

So a friend of mine met a chick after moving to Argentina like 2 months ago and is now getting married. He invited me to the wedding. I'm considering going, as I have a few months off this summer, but flights are fucking expensive from North America. So I need some feedback.

Argentina: Yea or nay? How long to stay? Are there other places nearby that are cheap/easily reachable?

I'm assuming you'll come to Buenos Aires (Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires), so... you should start looking for motels at Microcentro, you can find some good affordable places there (from the most cheap shitholes to fucking expensive ones). Pretty much everything is around that area (bus, subway, taxi, restaurants, party hard, etc).
Also I suggest to use a Payoneer prepaid card just in case, it's useful.

Me and my friend are planning a trip to Vietnam and Laos on motorbikes. We're planning to buy them in HCMC and sell them in Vientiane. I read it's possible to cross border from VN to Laos somewhere in the north.

Does anyone have any experience with it?
How expensive it is to get the papers?
How difficult is to sell the bike in Vientiane?
Isn't it easier in some other city in Laos?
How much time do you think is enough for the trip? Three weeks, four weeks?
Any tips for must sees on the way?

We also want to visit Hang Sơn Đoòng...

I bought a bike in Hanoi and rode down to HCMC, buying it is relatively easy, it's selling it that can get awkward.
Officially you need a licence to be able to buy a bike and get it properly registered but what a lot of people do is just laminate the bike reg form and just pass that on with the sale of the bike. This is your documentation and everyone I've met said if they got stopped by the police they showed them this form and didn't get into any trouble (sometimes they will keep asking you for documents, just keep showing them the form saying THIS is it),...

I don't mean to hijack the thread but is a 2-week trip somewhere in SEA enough? where would you recommend i go if so?
>>
>>1114642
Is it enough? No. Should you go? Yes.
You won't see everything but that would take a good few months, pick a region (north/south of somewhere) and do that, don't rush it and try to see everything or you'll never really experience it.
My personal recommendation would be north Vietnam, Hanoi City, Ha Long Bay, Sapa, lots of places to explore in 2 weeks and it's not too touristy.

I've known this one guy off and on for 6 years via various console's onlines and pc, played 1000s of hours with him, voice chatted, vidoe chatted. I got fuck all to do this summer besides a two planned trips with family to two different parts of the US, I have a car, have plenty of money for gas.

He plans on going to Colorado in like July or August to meet another guy we have known for way less time, apparently he was gonna go anyways even if not for that.

Is this a recipe for getting shanked or could it be alright?

Should be fine, sounds kinda homo desu though. People meet and fuck on tinder and whatnot all the time. Don't always so no, people who say no all the time are boring.

I think it's a great idea. To be honest, he's probably a fairly normal guy. Sounds like you're basically bros already.

I'm with the other guy though - I would say yes just to add some fucking excitement into my life. I'm always down for excitement
