This, except i made a mistake of moving to London. They pay is basically minimum wage and brits don't tip. The only people who tip without fail are the burgers.

But, being able to find a job in a day, take the time off whenever as I'm paid hourly and know that I can pack my backpack again and move wherever is nice. Plus I actually enjoy the work. Free coffee and beer is also nice, and the staff and management where I work is really relaxed, so I don't mind the pay.

Alright folks,
Spending next week in San Francisco and we just received our schedule.
Among other workshops, meet-ups and seminars it turns out we'll be taken to a Baseball Game on tuesday evening.
Google tells me the Giants will meet the Rockies.
Thing is, I'm french and never ever watched a game, still I'm pretty happy to get to experience an actual time at a stadium (in all honesty I would have enjoyed a basket ball game a whole lot more but eh).
So I'm already picturing myself with a hot dog in one hand and a glove in the other, but realistically what am I to expect? What would you advise to get the "best" out of it?
Also any tips about the city are welcome (yes I know, needles, homeless people, human feces and all of that, but since I'm going anyway I just want to have the best time possible).
Thanks all!

Don't bring a glove, it's cringe as fuck if you're over 13

Have some beers before the stadium, then maintain buzz at the game (beers are probably $15 at the game)

Sit upper deck infield, you'll see pitching and batting and most of the fielding, and tickets are generally cheapest up there


Don't be afraid to explore around the stadium, just because you have a seat doesn't mean you have to sit there the whole time. I haven't been to the Giants Stadium but I bet you can walk along the outfield wall by McCovey cove and check out the view from there

Baseball is a long and patient game. some call it boring. Fuck it, it IS boring most times. There is some strategy to it and if you are with someone who knows the rules of the game, they can explain some of the set up's a little. It's always exciting to see a home run, or a stolen base but the game is just 5% of that. It's a complicated game to explain in few sentences, but you'll figure most of it out around the 4th or 5th inning (round/period). There are nine innings. Games usually last a little over 2 hours.

As far as fan customs in general, baseball games are very relaxed and quieter than other sports because of the many periods of downtime. You'll hear people just randomly conversation about whatever and not even pay attention to the game. In-between innings, you'll usually see swarms of people make their way to the concessions to fuel up/restroom/etc. Hot Dogs are the custom food, but you'll find all types of food served at the stadium. Baseball is also a poor spectator sport. I found that most women who are there were either dragged there by their family (husband, son), or there just to hang. they spend 90% of the game on their phone.

Baseball is the U.S.'s only major summer sport so it also serves as an excuse to go out and just relax and take in the sun and not get too caught up in the game. It's very passive.

Depending on where you sit in the stadium, you may have a change to catch a "foul ball" (a baseball hit into the stands), or even a "Home run ball". This is why people (mainly kids) bring a glove to the game. You DO have to be aware of your surroundings though as sometimes these balls are hit hard into the foul territory and can hit you. Many fans have been hit by balls and some of them were even killed. It's a rare occurrence, but if you just pay attention to the immediate surroundings, you'll see it a mile away.

There is ONE U.S. tradition among all ballparks across the land: the 7th Inning stretch. In the middle of the 7th inning, most people get out of their seat to ..well... stretch. It's a custom that goes back over a hundred years and most parks sing a popular baseball anthem called "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" (the song can be learned here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxyMsHnlhIs ). Sometimes, this is replaced "God Bless America" in remembrance of September 11th, 2001.

Enjoy the game and GO ROCKIES (fuck the Giants). Enjoy San Fran and the baseball game.

So I'll be spending about two weeks in Romania and Moldova this August with a few friends. We're flying in to Bucharest and renting a car for the entire duration. We also plan to visit Transnistra, even if only for a single day, just to say we did. At the moment we don't have much of a plan besides that. I wasn't the one to decide on these countries but that's where we're going. Has anon been before? I recently learned that Moldova is the least visited country in Europe and I am sure there is a reason for that. But how bad is it? Is there actually nothing to do? What about nature? Scenic drives or nice hikes? All of us are very interested in history and are interested in seeing the sights of the German legacy in Romania. I've done a bit of research on my own but would be interested in some first hand accounts of these 2 (and a half) countries.

Like most countries in the area, all of the city centers are built on old Roman fortresses. It's pretty lively during the later parts of the day and night. Once you get past the city centers, it can feel quite "poor". They have a decent standard of living, but it's not a rich country.

As you might already know, you'd probably be making a fraction of what you'd be earning in the US. Most college graduates will try to work in the western european countries for that reason. As a result, there is a population shrink.

As far as what you're missing. Beautify women and cheap drinks. However besides that, it's not a particularly exciting country to live in.

I am from California, and I'm broke, but i'll be getting a job soon. Hopefully I'll save up $2,000 by the beginning of August.

My gf lives around Pougkeepsie New York and she is constantly abused by the people she lives with. She asked me to take her away from there, so my plan is to find a way to get over there, and bring her back here to cali to live with me and my family.

What is the best way to do this? And I might have to stay for a while in the Pougkeepsie area just to deal with her parents before I whisk her away.

Please help me with some methods to travel there and live there like a hobo, but so that both of us can survive the trip back.

What is stopping you from buying a plane ticket in her name and telling her to get on with a full suit case?

If she is abused, then there shouldn't be anything that couldn't be replaced she is leaving behind, except a pet, which you can simply buy a second ticket for.

This sounds like a shitty situation and I don't know all the details, but most girls "needing a rescue" are going to leave you once they are clear of any distractions of her actual feelings towards you. My first girlfriend did this shit to me because her family was legitimately abusing her psychologically to the point CPS had to get involved. Soon as she was clear of her parents, she told me to fuck off as she no longer needed a shoulder to cry on. Thought my heart was broken, then I realized she was trash for doing that so at least I learned my lesson. You should be ready for a bad break up after dumping an unreasonable amount of money into this situation.

My mom had a flight with them to Puerto Rico and the entire trip had to be cancelled because of the hurricane. They refused to refund at first.

>>
>>1620306
This may come off as a bold statement, but I feel that many negative flying experiences that travelers face are a result of user error more than the airline's. Doesn't matter whether it's a low-cost airline or a major airline. I think a large chunk of it is due to a lack of understanding on the passenger's part.
>>
>>1620673
Quality first world customer service depends on taking care of the customer regardless of what the fine print says though. It's the biggest difference in interacting with large corporations that you'll notice between living in first and third world countries, sometimes even the same fucking company. If you call up and have a problem with their services for some reason they should at least attempt to make it right. If you live in a third world country they will treat you like you're trying to scam them.

By some freak chance I find myself in California for the first time. I don't know anyone and don't have much money. I was planning to drive for Lyft but Cali law requires Cali plates on all for hire driving services so it looks like my stay will be very short. What to do here?

Unfortunately, I can't put in any more details, so I'll just ask. Approximately, how much will travelling in Japan for 3 weeks cost in dollars. I'm talking about tickets, travelling with trains, eating out every day and buying souvenirs? I don't mind staying at capsule hotels and such, so feel free to tell me that too! Thanks.
>>
>>1620600
Use the Japan general but overall
>JR pass is a golden ticket google it, 2 week pass will do you well 1 week is good for other shit, niigata nagano pass good for mountain shit
3 weeks about 1800 bucks should do you well if you are doing hostels daily

75-100 USD/day is living like a king
50-75 USD/Day living well doing most anything
35-50/USD watch out for bar costs but overall fine

Average cost for a museum is 600-800 yen 6-8 bucks
Shrines are mostly free unless you want a show or museum
Food is usually 1000 yen for a good big meal, most are 600-800 yen
Day train passes for most big cities are 600-1000 yen
Hostels are better than capsule hotels, use GRIDS. Capsule hotels are focused for business men not tourists

Hey guys! Anyone from Rome here?

I'm going to study in Rome for half a year and I'm looking for a room to rent (preferably with Italians).

Anyone knows where I can find nice, cheap room?
>>
it's gonna be hard, most Italians either live in the same apartment their family has owned for generations, or rent, so they live pretty tightly packed. your best bet would probably be airbnb, and look out for long stay discounts. i got 50% off of the hosts cost for staying somewhere for a month (still had to pay airbnbs fare in full though), and maybe you'll get even better for half a year. you can also stay with a host whose looking for long stays for a while, and cut a deal with them so you don't need to pay Airbnb anything.

I have a connecting flight in el prat air port, barcelona.
My plain lands in terminal 1 and the other one departures from terminal 2, and i have 2.5 hours between.
Is that enough time to go through the whole check in process and move from one terminal to another or should i look for a new flight?

>different tickets
aaaand that's where you fucked up. check online about the check-in policies for the airline and see if they have a hard cutoff time for checking in. I've never flown into Barcelona before so I may be completely wrong but 2.5 hours seems like a boatload of time unless I'm missing something here.

Worst case scenario you just be THAT guy and ask to barge in front of people. Like others have said, check in online, use the kiosks to get your boarding pass if you dont use your phone, gg. I don't even know why people stand in those long ass lines anymore unless there is no separate bag drop off counter
>>
>>1620501
Yes. Worry if you have less of 45 minutes.

Op here, the thing is that in barcelona you have to go through immigrations if you change terminals, thats my main concern, ive never done that in barcelona, so i dont know how much time that would take.

I've had to wait about an hour for immigration once coming from Russia, and that's having a schengen passport, because all the fucking ruskies were using the line for European, and those fucktard asshole spanish cops were to fucking cowardly to tell them to fuck off and go to the proper line. If you're coming from an international flight where most people will not be schengen citizens it could take an hour, hour and a half or even more, depends, like if people are civilized or not like in my case. Also spanish government hates catalonia to death right now so it's common for Barcelona airport to be understaffed in matters of spanish govt workers. Then you may be unlucky and your baggage may be delayed, it takes a while already, could be a strike or something, I once waited two hours on my baggage coming from Mexico, I thought it was lost then suddenly it appeared. Not the norm, but it happens.
With an hour left you can still easily make it, half could get dangerous. If push comes to shove grab a taxi to the other terminal so you don't have to wait on the bus, have some euros ready just in case. By cab it's like 10 minutes at most, usually no wait for taxi as most people arriving are budget tourists. Unless there's a taxi strike which is most likely to happen during holiday season because fuck our main source of income t. taxi drivers.

tl;dr you should be fine, but there murphy's law could fuck you up bigtime if you're unlucky. Sorry if I'm making you worried, just telling it as it is. That's why I absolutely fucking hate that airport.

Is it even possible to travel somewhere with just a week vacation from work?

Ive traveled a bit around europe and flown from the states, so I know its like 2 days flying to and from, and then you lose a half/full day getting situated, so you can maybe squeeze one city out of the trip before its over

I couldt think of a few cities I could make a day or 2 out of, but I dont want to pay all that money just for one place
