So my wife and I are heading out west late may/early june and I was wondering if anyone had any tips regarding trails/camping/general good stuff to see related to Yellowstone/Tetons?
>>
>where to stay
Jackson Hole is the big tourist area so there's tons of hotels, byt they're all expensive. Personally I always camp outside when I'm there. You can find campsites online but they fill up fast, especially in the summer. The farther out you reserve the better, unless you like living on the edge. Cheaper campsites are usually more in the Teton area and away from Yellowstone.
If you're rich there's cabins for rent but they fill up quick. Idk how far back you need to reserve since I've never done it. The more people you have the more it's worth it, imo.
>what to do
Go see Old Faithful like the 10 million chinese people who show up every summer. After that check out West Thumb. The park is pretty big and you can find stuff to do by just driving around, pretty much. Check out Upper Falls too, if they've reopened - when I was there last summer there was some kind of construction going on there.
Teton wise, I recommend the Table Rock trail if you're fit - the view is awesome and it's a decent day hike, whether you take the short but steep route or the longer flatter route. The Alaska Basin trail is cool too but a lot longer - if you're up for it you can do a 3 day hiking trip all the way through. On the east side of the mountains there's lots of lakes and stuff to see, and Mormon Row if you want instagram pictures.
Driggs, ID is a recent place to eat out/buy food/get expensive boat rentals. I recommend visiting Corner Drug while you're there and getting a lime freeze if they're in season.
Google this stuff and take a look at surrounding features of both parks. You could spend a month in that area and not see everything.
>>

Be prepared for enourmous crowds in Yellowstone. Because of the cost of hotels I'd plan on camping most of the way. Id also plan out your route and where you will stay for each night. Grand Tetons are beautiful I wanna go back this summer. Yellowstone is too but it's very crowded.

Where do you guys get your money to travel? Where do you work?

What do you think about this roadtrip? I will be travelling by buses/trains. Itinerary is as follows:

Kiev - 3 nights
Odessa - 5 nights (to chill by the beach)
Chisinau (Moldova) - 2 nights
Bucharest - 2 nights
Brasov - 2 nights
Cluj Napoca - 2 nights
Budapest - 1 night (but I was already there, just needed a place to stay before heading back to Poland)
Krakow - 2 nights

I know many of those places need more time to get a real experience, but I have limited time and wanted to make a bigger trip rather then choosing 1 or 2 spots.
I've been to Lviv before, that's why it's out.

I'm travelling in August. I usually like just wandering through cities, going on a tour, learning about the culture and just getting the feel of another country. That's why I'd like to travel by bus/train with locals. I also like nature and hiking, but on this trip I'm focusing on cities.
I travel with my fiancee, so I'm not into clubbing, whores and such. We want to visit the cities, go to the pubs, meet some locals, try local cuisine and chill out.

>>1542829
Oh, I was actually planning to visit Bran Castle (like everyone I guess...). Thanks for suggestions, Sinaia looks very cool.

Assuming you are not really tight on money, cut out the buses as much as possible and replace them with trains and rideshares. Price disparity between trains and buses isn't as high as in western yurope. Trains are more comfortable for travel and the cabin layout in some wagons is conductive to striking up conversations. Rideshares are the same in this regard, you are already travelling with someone who wants to get to know strangers.

Cannot say much about the rest, but regarding H to I leg of trip I sure hope you are visiting a spa and taking at least one day to hike in Tatras. Actually it's the best to park in hot water after a day spent hiking the mountains. Visiting a cave may not be a bad idea either.

And as other anons said, 5 days at the beach is too much.

Hello /trv/,

I'm taking a 10 day trip to Germany this summer while also stopping in Salzburg (as well as Berchtesgaden nearby) and Prague. We'll be renting a car and splitting up the driving on the Autobahn. We are starting in Frankfurt going counterclockwise. We are flying out from Frankfurt so that creates the loop.

What do you guys think about this route? Anything on here that we should skip, something not here that we should go see? Where do you think we should spend more time in than others? Anything in these cities you recommend? etc.

I've tried googling my problem but I'm just getting a wide range of conflicting answers.

I'm visiting Australia at the end of March for a few weeks. I've bought my travel insurance which covers medical expenses, however the terms and conditions are confusing. One part says you should sign up to Medicare on arrival, another part suggests that it's optional.

So my question is do I have to sign up Medicare or will my insurance cover it? Are they just trying to mitigate their losses by suggesting I sign up to Medicare? I don't fancy spending a day of my holiday sat in a government office filing an application

>>1543835
That's what I saw as well. It sounds like if you need non-emergency medical care you should apply for Medicare first or you should pay and then apply afterwards. I've read a few stories online where people needed emergency care and all they had to do was say they were from the UK and they were covered

I've just never had the desire to drink it.

I just thought it was the raspberries/lemons making it so bitter.

Has anyone on trv traveled to shenzen by the visa you can get in HK? If so can you get the visa again if you just go back to HK for a weekend?
>>
>>1543572

China Travel Service?
Visa on Arrival?


You can be denied entry if you're not a citizen.
You can also be denied a visa.

Get a proper multi-visit/high duration visa in advance to avoid disappointment.
>>
Sometimes you can get a visa at the Consulate General in Hong Kong, but they like to change the rules all the time so don't count on it. The easiest way is to go through a visa service, and get a double or multiple entry visa.

He shouldnt look for publics school for children. He should look for private organizations that teach young people and adult professionals alike, there are plenty of those. He could also look into universities.
>The 1% private schools that theoretically could hire a foreigner are all located in Moscow.
>Your only chance would be private tutoring, but it doesn't pay much outside of Moscow.
Wrong on both accounts.

Not lower than 60k rubles per month but it depends on the hours.

And walk along the coast, heading south from the city centre, alongside Park Shevchenko, down to the stations of the fountain. Even in winter, even in snow, it's a great walk. Maybe pick up a tram down there to get to the open air.military museum on the outskirts.

Also, get Odessans who can.speak.English.to.tell you "anecdotes" (ie short witty stories or subtle jokes). They are an immense part of the city's culture and how it sees itself.

>>1543356
Secondments are incredibly rare. Multinationals are all talk and rarely sent people over. It’s much easier to apply for jobs in the country you want to live.

Singapore and Hong Kong are extremely competitive so I suggest you have 5 years+ of strong experience.

All are about the same if you marry a local, however you will never really be 'local' except if you live in the country side.

With the right connections you can buy Cambodian citizenship for between $45,000-$75,000 USD but jesus christ who wants it?

Yes, I know they are completely different countries, but I'm thinking of visiting one of them and I can't decide which one.
