Is 1200e salary enough for living in Bratislava? I've got job offer and thinking about moving there
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Is cost of living cheaper in Slovakia?
Do you know anyone there?
Slovakia looks like a poorer but friendlier Austria haha, everything I've seen from the country makes it look really "comfy".

Anyway, another free bump for you because this is a more interesting thread than 90% of what this board sees on a daily basis, hopefully you get some help from someone from Slovakia anon.
Bratislava is like backup vienna. Housing prices exploded in the last few years and any local "ok salary" preety much got priced out of the city. People from Vienna with a Vienna salary went there in masses and guess what with 1.2k€ salary you're good in terms of food and stuff but on the housing market you belong to the rock bottom lower class.
I was going to say when I went there, it was a good exchange on the dollar for food and all even though it was in euros, but the housing I now see is crazy expensive in contrast.
Basically this, if you want to live near Bratislava, Id suggest some southern hungarian-bordering village. Housing in the inner city, or even in one of the neighbourhoods rivals in price that of Vienna, like the other anon said.
One thing to keep in mind however, is travel. Bratislava is known for daily and lasting traffic jams, never-ending street repairs and restrictions.
€1200 may well be an above-average salary for the rest of SK, hell, a rich man in the eastern part, but in the capital, about the median, or lower.
Thanks for reply. Well, I've been couple of times in Slovakia but I was only hiking on the mountains so I slept in the tent and mostly eat burgers from fire pit. As I sam prices in shops are pretty similar to Polish but yeah it was village side so no Idea how it works is capital. I've made some research and I have a chance with my experience to go up with starting salary of 1600-1800e so Im gonna negotiate. I've got an offer from DELL so its in the city center. No way I will live out of the city. Also it have my interest cause its backup Vienna as you said. A lot of nice things and similar yet different culture close to each other. I have some friends in hungary and croatia and I love their vibe

hello , me and my friend are going to visit Albania , Macedonia , Kosovo , Montenegro , Bosnia , Croatia and Slovenia this summer. we want to do mostly hiking, any good places to visit in one of these countries?
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
do yourself&us a favour and don't.

be careful about your organs, they like to steal them there
Bal, korchula and Split are amazing. The short hike to Zlatny Ray is gorgeous!
Hiking in Slovenia I recommend: Češka Koča (moderate difficulty with nice views), Kamniško Sedlo (quite hard if you aren't in good shape with amazing view), Velika Planina (very easy and touristy but beautiful)

Avoid Lake Bled in the summer it's overcrowded with tourists. Unless you really want to see it, it's not worth the hassle.

Leaving next week to bike from Boston to Philly. Can you recommend me regional dishes and or places to eat that won't break the bank?

Major cities that I'm spending time in are: Boston, Providence, Hartford, New Haven, New York, and Philadelphia

I'll post some of the things I intend to go see below if you feel like suggesting something or have similar interests. I like architecture, bridges, street art, and city life/culture. There is a large gap between Providence and New Haven where it seems like there is very little to see for 3 days of biking.

Omg, thank you so much. >>1543560
>Did u go yet
Leaving later this week, but I'm taking my time and spending at least a day in most major cities so I won't make it to Philly until the beginning on March.

I am going to to my absolute best to find that amish person, that's awesome. I'll be there for two and a half days so I hope to try almost everything on your list.

One thing I'm always amazed at is how cheap the food is in the states compared to Canada. That sandwich is the same as if you would buy a footlong from subway accounting for currency, so not really *very* pricy.
Like other people said, you have to get the pizza in New Haven, Frank Pepe's a classic. Also Federal Hill in Providence is a must for Italian food. If you have access to a kitchen, get the fresh cheese ravioli at Venda Ravioli. Some of the best in America and even compared to Italy for that matter.
this is very close but the best sandwich in boston is actually the combo from sam lagrassa's.
In Connecticut - skip Hartford (it's cute, but really not much there) and hug the coast instead - New London, Niantic (boardwalk), Old Sayville (arts center), Guilfford (check out Bishop's Orchard)
I second this.
Hartford is a city well past its prime - though I'd also swap out New London for Westerly.

Ive never been on a real vacation and i have lately been thinking about going on a bikepacking trip.
Anyone here have any experience?
Pretty sure you'll get more results on /n/, and you might want to stop in a newbie camping thead in /out/ for advice there as well.

Are you on the west coast by any chance? Planning a tour this summer.
Grew up in california. Im in colorado now.

/n/ isn't all that much into bikepacking. The board is more about cycling as a sport.

I did pic related last summer. Been doing bike trips in Europe for years. No experience on other continents though but feel free to ask questions.
I've only been in Colorado in the winter, but with the elevation, does it ever get warm there? Since you're in a western state though, at least there's plenty of campsites.

I don't have any advice, since I'm still in the planning stage of my first trip, but you might want to check out a movie. "A survey of open space." It follows a bikepacking trip from Texas to the tip of Washington state and also a bit of Alaska.

Long term I've always dreamed of cycling from here in Oregon all the way to the east coast, but I wouldn't want to do it alone, and finding people who are willing to commit a whole summer to that kind of adventure isn't easy.

I am going to the United States for a couple of months, and have gotten a B1/B2 visa. It says that it is valid for 10 years, with multiple entries.

As far as I understand it, my visa allows me to stay for a maximum of 6 months.

But, after I leave, can I then wait a while, and then re-enter for another 6 months? Not that I plan to, but with a visa that's valid for 10 years, that's 5 fucking years (if I wait 6 months in between each trip).

Seems a bit much, I dunno. Seems like I'm missing something.
Most likely it is up to the immigration officer's decision. If he feels you are trying to be in the US too much repeatedly he will deny you entry.
Yes, you can *try to* enter as many times as you want within the 10 years your visa is valid.
It's totally okay to enter many times if you stay for a short time on every trip (for example, if you're a businessman who travels to the US for work often).
If you stay for the whole 6 months, it's another story. It's pretty hard to invent a reason to stay 6 months in the US which is not illegal work so prepare to be questioned hard when you try to enter next time.

question to people who have been in poland
what was your biggest suprise regarding poland?
186 replies and 13 images omitted. Click here to view.
saved haha
This is Russian. The words are in Russian and the website at the end is .ru

Really Poland like all the other slav places are the same, gloomy people, drunk men and big tatas.
THE FUCKING BUREAUCRATS. You want to know the worst thing about Poland? The thing that's killing it? Bureaucracy.
After leaving communism, the bureaucrats stayed on. All they do is continue to add paperwork on top of paperwork simply to keep their jobs. They hate the common man and think they're beneath him in ever way, shape and form. Applications for simple documents cost exorbitant amounts. You can wait 25 days just to stand in line for a single document only to find out you need another document and wait another 25 days for it. They like to criticise every single little mistake you make in your paperwork too.
I have a Polish friend living in England. He can't speak Polish anymore (I don't know if it's some sort of mental illness or he just never spoke it and forgot). He needed to renew his passport so booked an appointment with the consulate (a whole hassle by its self). Thankfully renewing a passport should be a rather simple matter. All you need is your old passport, a new photo and a form you need to write all your details in. This form is in Polish and I was with him at the time just to help out so translated it for him. His number was called so he went up. The bureaucrat at the till, however, refused to speak English with him for some unknown reason. He waved me over and I helped him out. This bitch said he didn't look anything like his photo (no shit it was ten years ago and he lost weight). He managed to get his passport through but not until she got £20 "to get it through safely". Renewing a passport is free, the bitch just wanted a bribe.
If you see a bureaucrat, punch it in the face and spit on it. These things don't deserve to live. They're the rats of humanity.
Was this at the embassy in England? You should report her for corruption.
ukraine and russia have more corrupted bureucracy tho

What are some gross misconceptions you've found out when traveling
>Assumed: Canadians are nice polite people
Found out they are just more quiet assholes, oh what's that you absolutely hated everything about the trip? Why the fuck didn't you speak up about easily fixable things during it?
>Germans have great beer and you won't out drink one
Yet then never seem to drink any of it. Every one I meet either goes for some cheap alternative or what not but never drinks the stuff they brag on
>Japs/Koreans/Chinese are really smart
Aside from some heavily skewed book knowledge depending on their government, they really are boring people.
>You can't get laid in Japan without knowing the locals
Convinced this is a actual belief weebs have to make up for the excuse they couldn't get laid
>British people are great people to meet abroad
Most either fall into 2 specturms, either easily offended by everything or alcoholics
>France is really great it's a gorgeous place
>Florida is a good place for foreigners to visit
Never again going to florida, hot rains a lot and full of weirdos

americans are smarter on average than euros if you take out blacks and hispanics

the smiling thing is true though. they get inculcated into a cult mindset regarding jobs, and if they're not smiling at the job, they'll get fired for having a poor attitude/cooperation/team spirit

seriously though, americans are a good deal smarter than euros. the only person I've ever been able to have a technical conversation regarding advanced physics outside of my job has been an american. euros are clueless and their stem programs are a joke.
Why are people on this board so negative about travel? Like if travel is a hobby, you're really doing yourself a diservice by referring to cities and countries as "shitholes". I'm able to find something I enjoy about every place I travel because I'm not going to waste my time and money going to a place just to write it off as beneath me.
How do you expect a German to drink a German beer while traveling, you just can't get it anywhere.
If you're talking about Germans within the Vaterland, they usually drink the good beer, and if not, the shit beer is still better than a lot of the piss you can get around the world

anyone wanna guess this edgelord's nationality and skin color?
I think he's the mentally ill aussie to be fair, he has some weird thing against Euros

Hopefully I'll get used to it someday, Thank you very much for all the advice.

You will need an international driver's license/permit to drive in SA along with your US license. Otherwise you're gonna have to drop R1000 to bribe the cop.

I've looked at plenty of "top 25 medieval cities", "best places to explore medieval europe" etc articles for one day.

I'm trying to immerse myself in the medieval world. Firstly it's cuisine and then the architecture of it's castles. Besides what I've learned from these sites I'd like to know from some anons who are well traveled, what points on the European map you recommend to find these things?

Canterbury has a medieval obsession. It's unusual to walk down the high street without hearing lute players or morris dancers or larpers fighting with swords.
Try Bruges, and kutna hora

You can add Lüneburg, Landshut, Duderstedt, Wolfenbüttel, Bamberg, Dinkelsbühl and Passau in Germany
And Troyes andStraßburg in France

/trv/, what sort of jobs can you get while traveling that don't involve teaching English?

Basically, I mean jobs with international companies that don't care where your permanent residence is, or location independent jobs. Maybe also short-term jobs such as bartending, working at a hotel or resort, or serving as as English speaking guide for tourists.

My experience of the working world is pretty limited, so I don't even know what the possibilities are, but what I want is to live here and there for in three or six month stretches, doing different things that don't involve small children.

Depends on the country. Getting work in Hospitality is always a surefire way. Anywhere where there's tourists needs people to work in hotels, hostels, restaurants and bars.
I did housekeeping while traveling around because nearly every hostel/hotel is hiring housekeepers all the time. Made it really easy to get a job within 3 or 4 hours of being in a new town.
Could you do this on a tourist visa?

Tour guide work mostly goes to English (Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, etc.) speaking locals--they know wherever better than you do. I have known some third-country tour guides, but these are mostly academics or otherwise highly qualified people nowadays. And it's not really transient/casual/flexible work--these were all folks that lived somewhere else and had a set contract to do some number of tours per year according to a predefined schedule.

I agree with the posters above that hospitality offers quite a few options, but the people I've known have either been barely employed at all (essentially helping out in hostels in exchange for free rooms and maybe some food/booze--this was a big thing in Southeast Asia some years back; I actually don't know if the backpackers I have met doing this were getting paid anything), or professional/not flexible--I know more than one person who has moved around internationally in service of 5-star hotel chains. But they liked it. Similar is cruise ship work--mobility, some flexibility, free time between contracts, but grueling long days and negligible time off while fulfilling those contracts--seriously, perhaps 90 days of 6.5 day, 14 hour/day weeks. Sounded foul to me, but living expenses were mostly taken care of, so it is an easy way to save. And my friend who did this for a few years enjoyed getting picked up in Amsterdam and dropped off in Cartagena or wherever for his stints.

I'm a little confused about what you're looking for--do you want casual work to do intermittently while backpacking, or real/permanent jobs that will offer migration opportunities/location flexibility?

If you are from outside the EU, no, you can't do it legally. Of course you can work illegally, but that is a really, really bad idea.

oh, and I forgot, Flin Flon - the town is partially in two different provinces

Drumheller sounds cool too, except its the Canadian version of a small town in Nevada

I like Caroline.
Not "cool" but nice.

Also, yes.
Drumheller is cool.

Don't know what other board to post this on but I was planning a trip from Los Angeles to Paris via cargo ship container across the pacific and then taking the trans-siberian railroad from Vladivostok to Moscow then a train from Moscow to Paris. After Paris I would book another ship across the Atlantic to New York then take a rent a car across the US back to LA via the american south. Where would I even start with trying to book this?
I know the trip would take a little over 3 months total (give or take)
Thanks lads.

>cargo ship container
Why? You can take a cruise ship and it will be cheaper.
