Can we talk about hostels for a moment?

>Cramped, always too hot or too cold
>usually filled with chinks and other inconsiderates having full volume coversations at 3am
>ALWAYS at least ONE chronic snorer
>get tired of the "so where are you from, how long have you been here etc" after about 3 days

Anyone else? Would never stay in a hostel again if I was rich enough to pay for hotels

He could be a contractor or non US person, companies are required to pay for travel if required. Or his company gives him X amount per day, he stays in shit place, lives bare bones and pockets the rest

Im thinking of going to the Ukraine to see Chernobyl and the Odessa catacombs. What's the safest and most efficient way to get from Kiev to Odessa? Preferably cost friendly.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
What are some other cool things to see in Odessa besides the catacombs
Yes. If you're autistic about it then book a lower bunk where your bags are under you're mattress. But it doesn't matter
fly to Odessa from Kyiv to and fro, 2-hour flight.
sleeper trains were comfy as
Cheapest way --> Train (sleeper train for Odesa)
Most efficient way --> Plane (only use it with Odesa)

You can make a long day trip out of Chernobyl if necessary.

that kind of sudden CAT (clear air turbulence) is in no way the fault of the flight crew.
Pretty sure if the pilots were expecting turbulence they would have turned on the fasten seatbelt sign and told the FAs to sit their asses down.

If the documents were that important he would have backed them up....you know even before cloud storage you can still email yourself right?
damn that is fuuuucked uuuup
>GF's passport was valid for 5 months (needed to be 6), so we were told in MEX that we couldn't continue our trip
Without pointing any fingers at anyone, I could've sworn that most if not all countries clearly indicate minimum validity requirements on passports right next to their visa requirements.

I got a job in Warren, Michigan, in the northern suburbs of Detroit. Never been to Michigan (or the Midwest) before and have no idea what area I should live in. Warren itself doesn't seem too appealing. I've heard that Troy and Rochester Hills are nice. What areas would you recommend? Any places to avoid at all costs?

Detroit proper, Pontiac, and Inkster are trash.

Dearborn is okay but not spectacularly so. All of the other suburbs, so far as I'm aware, are decent. Livonia has some nice areas, as do Southfield, Westland, and Garden City.

Troy, Rochester Hills, Bloomfield, Birmingham, etc, are all rather upscale. Some of Detroit's satellite cities are among the most exclusive ZIP codes in the country.
Wtf job did you get in Warren? Boarding up abandoned houses?
I grew up in Warren, moved away 10 years ago when shit started getting worse.
I would say Clinton twp, novi or troy are "good" places to go. If you have money, Bloomfeild is the best, lots off rich people over there. Rochester hills is too.

not necessarily. a lot of dealers mix it ("rebajar") with other shit.

>Don't use street hookers, they have AIDS. Go to a proper strip club and use a condom.

I'm Colombian. I've fugged prostitutes for over a decade, never caught anything. Prostitutes inside the red light district, be it street or club hookers, get checked constantly by health authorities. At least in Bogota, where I go.

AIDS has a low prevalence in Colombia as in pretty much all of the Americas
>follow a intensive Spanish course.

Toucan Spanish School
>At least in Bogota, where I go.
When I was in Bogotá the hookers looked very unappealing to me. They look much better in Europe.

Thanks, anon. I'm seeing a few more nice options. Seems like I'll probably have to spend more like 14,000 or 15,000 yen for a room, but I guess I can live with that. Hoping it will be a nice break from hostels.

If you want to leave and travel the world for a year. How much money would be adviced?

I spend on average 200-250,000b/month in BKK and $5000/month in PP. Not everyone wants to live like a pleb.
London and Bumfuck E Europe are 2 different price tiers.

Moscow and Bumfuck Omsk are 2 different price tiers

Less price difference

yeah same

You get my idea. It depends on how much you want to see and do. Round the world trip without experience and free/cheap accommodation should not be attempted with less than $10,000.

Sure i do, but you get what i mean, a round trip. That means a bit of everything, naturally staying in the less expensive parts for longer periods.

Also being from Inverness I must add that although Aviemore is comfy the number of tourists and English ruin it for me. That act as if they own the place. For true tranquility and comfy you must go north to the fishing villages or remote lochs. If the Chinese are not using it as a staging area for invasion, the green lochin at the base of Shepard’s hill is very Comfy.

Because... ÂżWhy not?
Seems like the cheapest country to experience the nordic culture. Is Helsinki as expensive as other european capitals? Where would you stay for more than 2 weeks? I don't trust at all those airbnb things, looks strange to literally live in someones house.
How are the bars/pubs there? Live music is common? Until what time are their open?

Or Kalle on Thursdays.
>What about a week on Helsinki?
There's 2 days worth of stuff to see/do in Helsinki itself, but you can do day trips to Tallinn, Nuuksio national park, etc. if you want to go out at night that's up to you but drinks are fucking expensive in clubs and bars (around 7 eur for the cheap local lager) so most young people just get drunk on supermarket beer before going out.
Spent a weekend in Helsinki in June and I feel like you could do most of the main sight seeing with an extra day or maybe two. Granted I tried to do all while going to a festival each evening so I expect you could do everything in the weekend. That being said I loved Helsinki. It was a fecking lovely city. More or less as expensive as the other Scandinavian cities,maybe a little cheaper than some but not majorly.
Like the other anon said, Taillin is worth at least a day trip and its cheaper than Helsinki.
In Helsinki I'd really recommend going out to Suomenlinna island, only a twenty minute ferry from the city and you'd easily spend a day there if the weather is good. The market at the harbour is also worth checking out beforehand,
While I'm here I might hijack the thread slightly.

The alcohol law changed just now and bars and nightclubs are open longer. They have to stop serving alcohol at 4 am but can stay open longer and some nightclubs will be open to 6 am now.

If you want to stay in Helsinki I suggest you visit Vartiosaari. It is a old military fortress island that was opened to public a few years ago. It has some very cool sights.

You idiot never heard about noise cancellation headphones? They are standard in every C class.

North Bulgaria should have many, especially the Northwest which is literally the poorest and most stagnated region of the whole EU
Also the Strandzha mountains next to South Bulgaria's Black Sea coast are pretty much abandoned, though be careful as the roads are probably the worst that i have seen in Europe
Why are those gypsies dangerous?
Idk about elsewhere in the Balkans, but in Bulgarian villages with only old people left, the gypsies are very dangerous, they rob, beat and kill old people and the police don't do anything

So I don't know much about this whole travel thing so I'll ask you nerds. What's the cheapest way to travel in the US? I want to go from Florida to New York one of these days but it would be applicable to other places as well.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
In order of price:
Nigger bus
Normal tier airlines

This guy gets it.

Value travel as much as you value yourself.
Buses are fine as a cheap option for short trips but going for long distances it's miserable (not just boring but downright uncomfortable and scary at times) and it's not actually all that cheap.
Budget airlines are better, cheaper and shorter. They're still boring and uncomfortable but your only in it for a few hours to a half day at most.
Also if you shop in advance, are flexible with dates and airports and set up fare alerts you can get pretty good deals on regular airlines, too.
Flying is just the most efficient way to go long distances in the US.
> it's not actually all that cheap.

This, a round trip greyhound bus trip is about the same as a flight when you factor in time/cost/food. I do it from Phoenix to LA all the time but it's 20 bucks, over 8 hours on a bus I would be like lol no
Buses used to be the cheapest way to get around, but since outfits like Allegiant and Spirit came around the only people who take long distance buses are people who can't get on an airplane.
Think about how fucked up a person has to be to not be allowed on an airplane.
Now imagine being stuck sitting next to that person for two days.
