What's a lower-end daily budget including travel between cities in Scandinavia? I've traveled like a hobo in Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe before so I'm used to roughing it, but I'd really like to spend some time in the more expensive countries of Finland, Sweden and Norway. Is $100 a day (excluding my flight into and out of the region) enough to stay in hostels, eat from grocery stores, and travel around?

Hard to say, but I think that would be fine. Take me as a swede, when in Japan I usually spend around $94 a day excluding accommodations but felt like I was living like a king with the cheap food, restaurant food will be pricey in Sweden but groceries are fine.
Check out SJ for some travelprices by train, busses are a little cheaper but trains are worth it, rail isn't monopolized any longer so there are other companies too for intercity travel, I usually go with SJ though.

>>1109781
$100 per day is enough to visit the cities if you stay in hostels, but in the countryside (in Norway anyway) there are no hostels and price-wise a lot of stuff is tailored for older European and American with money. If you want to travel in rural Norway on the cheap you gotta bring a tent and hitchhike or take local buses.

Is camping free in a lot of spots like it is in the United States? I'd be there in summer so sleeping outside would be doable, but then there's the obvious problem of having a tent and transporting it around the country.

Hostel culture is not the same in the US as abroad, admittedly I am not a hostel fan, period, but I definitely don't recommend it in the US. I am pretty sure you can get into Disney World by yourself, I know you can get into Disney Land in California by yourself. Long Weekends are enough for me with kids, but solo, I'm not sure, but there is nothing to say you can't visit again. You don't have to see everything in one trip.

Week long Cities:
NYC
D.C.
Boston

Hampton Roads...

If you have any interest in going, I'd recommend taking the plunge and hopping on over. India is a magnificent country with a lot to offer, so far as cultural and natural diversity are concerned. Having said that, I will throw in this caveat - it's not for everyone, and I can understand why. As a presumably white tourist, you will meet people day in and day out who try to cheat you, scam...

Vancouver is the most expensive city in NA. Like Manhattan is more expensive, but it's not an actual city itself. I grew up around the red circle, new houses there sell for 3 million +.

If you want to get the best out of the country, you should visit the north as well.

Also, there's no need to spend any more than a day in Oslo. There's really not much to see except for the Vigeland park, the royal palace and maybe the opera.

You can also expect very unpredictable weather. Especially on the west coast. Don't be surprised if it rains the whole time. That's why I'm glad I live in Norway, as I can travel whenever the weather is nice.

If you can't afford the sky-high Orlando theme park tickets at their regular price, I recommend not going. The heavyweight theme park resorts here are very slowly turning into places reserved for the rich, through pricing out the middle class. If you're going to be on a budget, you'll be miserable.

The only real way to save money without dealing with shady 3rd-party park ticket sellers is to stay at a hotel not on resort property. Even those are still expensive, but at least you'll be able to afford it. Don't go too cheap with the hotel, though. We did that once and we were the only guests that spoke English.

Hello guys, I just saw that there's now cheap flights from my location to the island of MALTA - I'm considering to go for a week.

Has anyone been? What did you think of the place?

I'm mostly interested in places that have a strong local culture, maybe some interesting nature, not TOO touristy (not Venice/Ibiza/Magaluf-level). I'm interested in good local food, churches and a historical/archaeological backdrop.

Would you recommend MALTA to me? I'm mostly concerned that it might be some hyper-touristy resort-town place (see pic)

It's a hit or miss.
The kids you host may be extremely shy, some conceited bastards shitholes, borderline hyperactive, just dumbass stupid pieces of down syndrome or the best kids in the world.
And there's also the hit or miss about whether they'll connect with your kids and have a nice interaction.
Some programs, I believe, allow you to choose between some kids (they give you the profile of the brat and you pick one), others may just send you a random one.
It really depends and you should seek information with the program organizers.

Go there and find out.
Worst case scenario, you'll be arrested, charged for illegal possession and rot in an awesome jail with all your expenses paid by citizens of another country that will hate you 4ever and ever.

0 B,
Hello /trv/. I'm an American who's traveling to Europe this summer, and I have a concern. I'm 19 years old and a freshman in college, and this summer, I'll be going to Croatia with my best friend from high school. My friend is of Croatian descent, and as such, he has family over there, and thus, he will actually arrive in Croatia a few days before me. Also, since I'm a starving college student, I couldn't afford a direct flight to Croatia. Instead, I booked a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, and I plan to take a train into Zagreb.

However,...

Don't even worry about it. So long as you're not in France, the trains won't be an issue.

Would I buy my tickets online or wait until I'm already at the train station in Frankfurt?

online might be a safe bet.

OK, so firs you have to understand that the US transit system is all built off of the Interstate Highway System -- supplemented with airports, so the best ways o get around the country are by car or plane. If you can't do a car, and what you want is to hit certain cities, look into air travel between cities.

If that doesn't work for you, your choices are bus or train or hitching. Our train system is OK on commuter routes between cities in the NE corridor and I am told along the west coast. Not so much...

19 KB,
Has anyone here been to Albania? After visiting Japan, I really want to travel more and look for possible places to move to out of the United States. The Albanian language has always interested me.
How would you fellows who've traveled to Albania describe it? Is it nice there? Easy/hard to get around for someone who doesn't know Albanian?

Had a very nice few weeks backpacking through. Very friendly open people. Very pleasant hitchhiking. Not a ton of infrastructure. There are no real bus or train lines, only taxies. Interesting roads as well.

I would happily spend the rest of my life there and never look back. Beautiful country, amazing people.

I'm sure the people were very friendly and open to you, but I'm afraid that's only because they wanted your money. Albania is a very backwards country where blood law is still practiced and organized crime is rampant.

"Not a ton of infrastructure" and "interesting roads" are both very shit ways of saying that infrastructure is basically nonexistent.

Overall, it's a nice place to visit if you enjoy nature and hiking and stuff like that, the mountains to the north...

Spent several weeks. Spent little money, was never asked for any. Given much rakia and cigarets.

If your prone to stupidity, you stand a good chance of being killed, or more likely severely beaten and robbed. It is a different world. However, if your not a fucking dipshit you will be fine.

Thinking of meeting up with my friends on their trip to Paris in November or December. Probably gonna be doing my own thing for a few days cuz they're a couple, and I want to give them their alone time.

Also what are my chances with the French girls if I'm American?
