I'm planning to do a trip to L.A for the next E3.
It's my first time going to the united states and my first time getting out of my country.
My plan is to go a few days before the event and stay a few days after it ends, maybe like 10 days.
I'll pack 3K dollars and a few things for those 10 days (travel and hotel are not included in the 3K budget, it's all for my personal use)

It's the money enough to stay that much time (10 days)?
What things (aside from the main event, the E3) are there in L.A to do?
Any tips?
I'm from Argentina.

I'm from Argentina, I literally speak spanish so there's no problem.

Also I love spicy food, IIRC LA isn't in the pacific ocean side? is the seafood good?

thank you for your advice, I feel a little nervous because it's my first time going this far, I don't know what to do.

You'll do fine. You'll sound like a stuck up asshole to the locals, but you'll be fine.

Since you're on 4chan, I'm going to bet you have a weaboo power level. Try visiting the Jungle in little tokyo.

Vidia: There's a couple of bar arcade combinations near downtown. I'm going to suggest that you take the extra effort to visit Round one, in lakewood, near where Snoop Dog grew up. It's the closest thing to an authentic japanese arcade on the continent.
Santa Monica Pier. Touristy as fuck, but does have an arcade, a ferris wheel, some pop culture vinyl toy stores. If you go there, a food idea: Joe's pizza, a NY style pizza translplant. More importantly, it's not worth the extra time to go all the way to fucking redondo beach with no car just to avoid tourists.

>Food
Ranges from superb hole in the wall places, to garbage, to hipster shit to fucking 3 star michelin experiences. Yes there is great seafood. But the places I know are out of range or weird. I'd try to get sushi and ramen.

Lol, there is one hotel that costs $1000 per night and 10 that cost $100, the average is $200. Only the minimal price matters, and the minimal in LA would be around $50, unless you stay in a hostel dorm.

Hey OP, check out Alberta. Your two major cities are Edmonton and Calgary. There's nothing really spectacular about either, but I do prefer Calgary.

If you're graduating with a degree that could be related to the oil and gas business, I would look into Fort Mac. You would make quite a lot of money. There's the possibilities of find a place to live in the city, living in the camp (don't do this it's awful) or getting a Fly-In, Fly-Out job.

For British Columbia, I recommend Chilliwack. It's a large city about an hour away from Vancouver and is a much nicer and cheaper area to live in. Just go to Vancouver on the weekends.

There's fuck all in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Ontario can be nice as long you avoid Toronto.

Quebec is nice but it's full of the French.

New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland are just full of fish fuckers. Go there if you want to sodomize a cod.

I'm 25, from the US, $40,000 in student debt and the last of my family (my mother) just died. I hate my life and would like to start anew, rather than kill myself.

I'd like to travel to an English speaking nation somewhere in Europe and attempt to build a new life. Any suggestions on countries that would take me in, and how difficult would it be getting a work VISA and finding a job as an expat. I have no connections abroad and would be starting from scratch. I have a liberal arts degree and teaching seems like something I could do.

I have good credit so I have about 10k to work with before I leave that debt behind as well.

I really really want to call you a dumb fucking cunt that brought it upon yourself but I feel bad about your mother so I'll take a pass for this one

I felt the same way you do. I dropped out of college because my scholarship ended and I wasn't about to pay $30,000/yr for school and I was fed up with living with my parents and in America and I just generally hated life. So I sold my car, packed up everything I could fit into two suitcases, and moved to Germany. It was the best 3 months of my life followed by the most miserable 21 months of my life before I eventually ran out of money and options and had to return home.

Moral of the story: don't move abroad with no plans and do as you go. It's a bad idea and is how you run out of money.

I'll be spending a couple months traveling around Europe in late January. I just finished my degree and have postponed my serious job searching for it.

I was thinking this might be a good opportunity to get some exposure to the international community in my field. I study natural resources management and am specifically interested in water. Do you have any tips on how to do some professional networking while abroad? It would be fun to have some kind of informational interview and maybe make a connection across the world. Language barrier is obviously going to be a challenge depending on where I am.

Anybody who travels for business have some insight? This isn't the same as a study abroad program but it would be cool to have something interesting to discuss for an interview after the trip.

depends where you go in africa. Victoria Island, Nigeria venues are pretty awesome that's where the upper/middle class Nigerians hang out. Zambia is pretty cool too, and Sierra Leone beach parties around Freetown are awesome. If you want to experience the most safest city in the world it's Asmara which is the North Korea of Africa.

I don't pass for white at all. I did an ancestry test and had a bit more native american than European. I usually get mistaken for a native in places or for a common non white minority like Turkish or Malaysian. People really exaggerate being white. Some classic white features are liked like height and not having super Han Chinese features but this can apply to so many non whites too (not tall either I am 5'8 last I checked). Being exotic is almost always a plus

I'm currently in India for the eighth time. Lived in Delhi for about two years in total and traveled a fair amount all across the north. I'm more than happy to answer any questions about the National Capital Region as well as the other places I've been around India.

What I can't answer, hopefully others can.

My job is making me take a flight to another country and the thing is it has multiple planes I must change and the last time I took a flight was when I was 10 years old and I am scared that I might go to the wrong plane so what way is there to make sure I change to the correct planes?

>I am scared that I might go to the wrong plane
It actually sounds like you think it is possible to get on the wrong plane. The planes are not situated together like on a fucking bus stop.

You have a gate you go to where all people taking the same plane are sitting. It is not humanly possible to get on the wrong plane.

How can a grown person not know this?

It can happen, I work for an airline that serves a city that happens to share the exact same name as another, more popular city. So they book online not realizing, and end up in the complete opposite place they intended on going.

It happens a few times a year. Not our fault, but you're SOL.
>>
>>1336798

That's not at all the same thing as getting on the wrong plane though. That's booking a plane ticket to the wrong destination.
>>
>>1335859
Don't be afraid to ask the person at the information desk. Also, you typically get plane tickets via phone these days, so just make sure you have your phone turned on. These tickets will typically say the terminal and gate number. You can better yet ask other travelers if they are headed the same way you are. If so, then you can mention its your first time flying and that you could just follow them.

Try to allow the most amount of time to get to the gate needed.

Don't try to stop for anything unless you really have time. Sometimes airports/monorails/buses between terminals can be crowded, especially this time of year. Once you settled in the gate of your next flight, be sure to check with the ticket person at the counter of the gate to make sure you are at the right place before doing anything.

Do This
> just make sure you have your phone turned on. These tickets will typically say the terminal and gate number.
Do not do this.
Unless you mean boarding pass, An e-ticket is different, but they are frequently and incorrectly used by travelers and airline employees. Etickets (VCRs) dont display gate information.
Still a good idea to double check in case their was a last minute gate change, which happens a lot on delay days.

These. Populated places in California are neat to visit, but I would never want to live there. Too expensive, too many natural disasters (see: wildfires ravaging all corners of the state this year), and way too blue politically in the places that matter, especially San Fran.

Agreed. My personal philosophy is that if you have to pay to park your car or need a parking permit where you live, it's God's way of saying this place has too many people and you should live elsewhere.

>the amount of white trash in tampa florida is astounding. Do not go there.
There's White trash in every corner of the country. Tampa's no different. As long as you don't have to live in a trailer park or shop at a Wal-Mart Supercenter regularly, it's a non-issue.

Tampa is actually a pretty unusual melting pot of political affiliations. For every White trash guy you see on the road with a Confederate flag flying in back, there will be a hipster on the road with a coexist or rainbow bumper sticker.

There is in the suburbs. There are "gangs" (militias) who take pot shots at each other daily and bombings happen. Mainly Shia VS Sunni gangs.

There are also dangerous border regions where ISIS was kidnapping people and hurling bombs very recently. You will also likely witness a gunfight in a nightclub as that's how all Lebanese men resolve disputes at places like Sky Bar, handguns come out and one might go off. True it's nothing like Iraq/Yemen/Syria but still, need to keep your wits about you and avoid those suburbs.
