what are the highlights of quebec and montreal and other cool things/places to check out. food, history, museums and other interesting spot suggestions?
Go to La Banquise in Montreal, apparently it's the best poutine place there is. Always a line to get in. But I think you can make reservations?
I don't know about reservations but the wait is usually manageable, and it is one of the best poutines I've had. Old Montréal is very nice, walking around is pretty cool. The Mont Royal lookout gives you a good view as well, especially at night I find.
Relax dude. No need to bring violence into all this.
Yes this is a travel board not /pol/
when in québec, the parc national de la jacques-cartier is a great outdoor opportunity, both in winter or summer, that you will not have in montréal.
Anybody else collect up the nice soaps but never use them, promising yourself instead that you'd save it for when you'd really need a nice soap?
You paid for those.
Only the lube, for a friend.
I end up using them eventually.. some hotels actually have some really nice stuff
You know a hotel is top tier is they use L'occitane. Personally I'm happy with Asprey Purple Water that they give out at the Ritz-Carlton

going to berlin in two weeks. What should I see? I enjoy history, museums, off the beaten path neighborhoods, live music and dive bars. Best place for currywrust? good day trips from berlin?general recommendations? I'll take whatever never been before
>>2337346 >How easy will it be to be there without speaking German, only English?
You will have no problems, certain places used to better English than German.
>On that note, is it worth to try and learn any German before I go?
Learn these two phrases:
- "Guten Morgen/Tag/Abend", "Hallo" - "Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening", "Hello" (less formal)
- "Sprechen Sie Englisch?" - "Do you speak English?"
Very likely you won't need to use the second one, people will switch to English after noticing an accent in the greeting.
>>2337346 >How easy will it be to be there without speaking German, only English? On that note, is it worth to try and learn any German before I go?
people will be cold to you if you just talk at them in english, always try german first, they won't make you suffer and will switch to english, but will be happy you made the effort. You have a few months before you're going which is more than enough to do some casual learning through something like duolingo. If in doubt pick up a phrasebook, they're useful in a pinch and can be a good conversation starter, and once again it shows you're making an effort.
best things to see on the east side of berlin?
They're tearing down more and more socialist stuff, so just walking through Lichtenberg and the like will feel very different in one or two decades.
So as an American on a tourist visa, I can tragically only stay on the Schengen zone for 90 days every 90 days. I know I can go to Croatia, but I'm curious about UK & Ireland.
What are the best spots to live in with good access to amenities? Bonus for good hookup culture and women without STDs.
Don’t go to Ireland or the UK, both are overrun with migrants and globohomo centres
>t. Irishman living in Ireland
lol buddy I'm from the American south. You merely adopted to the diversity. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see a white community until I was already a man.
>>2338405 >best places to live abroad in UK/Ireland?
I know this might shock you lad, but most people's criteria for travelling to a place isn't how "globohomo" it is
What are some good careers that allow you to travel to many countries for extended periods of time (6+ months)? I don't have much to look forward to in life, and I have always wanted to visit many countries, so I figure having a concrete goal would help me.
What is your career? How can you afford to travel, both in terms of time and money?
IT, graphic design, digital marketing, programming. Take your pick and find a remote worker.
I am a remote worker. Upper management type of work. When you get to a certain threshold of income it’s like living in an apartment but on the road through Airbnb. Hotels are a bit expensive, but if you save you can splurge. It’s nice having a free breakfast.
traveling prostitute. not even kidding.
tell me about your experience as a roving whore
might wanna think about a backup job for when you get back. shits looking like it'll hit the fan in the banking world, so having a plan B would be a good idea (just in case)
I think the guy below is mainly right, but it prob depends on where you're from (easier if in EU vs elsewhere). I do a version of programming, and It's been relatively easy for me to live in different countries for about a year+ at a time if I want simply by switching jobs. If you want to go remote, that will afford you some extra flexibility but you'll be limited in some respects by working timezones and where you'd be able to get a visa. Not sure how young you are, but it might take you a bit of time to build up experience before international companies will look at you due to how the majority of companies make visa requirements. I've lived in 4 (soon to be 5) countries by doing this, and now I feel fairly confident I could get a job and move to most places without too much hassle on my end (as a US citizen).
Something also worth considering is consulting, but the hours are shit and obviously you don't get to choose where you travel, but it's not an awful way to start your career if your don't know what you want to do since most jobs seem willing to give ex-consultants a shot for whatever reason.
Are they really that bad?

You got what you paid for.

I imagine that on routes to Ibiza that is an issue sometimes?
This is the business model used by most discount/budget carriers. Use secondary airports, furthest boarding gate and tarmac boarding. Also very restrictive check in and boarding times. That way they pay the lowest possible fees to the airport and can get away with charging lower fares.
Boeing hired $5 an hour pajeets to program the software for the 737 MAX. No wonder the thing fell out of the sky.
It will be callable, just outside of his included minutes due to being a premium rate sex line number, and poorfag doesn’t want to pay
The contract of my work phone blocks premium numbers by default, so I need to use a different phone to call if they don't offer some other way of contact, e.g. a foreign phone number.
Oh yes my man, same here.
Paid less than 80 pounds for 2 way tickets from London to Barcelona on easy-jet during July . Sure the seats are very close of each other. But for a 2 hour flight who the fuck cares . I actually manage to even fall a sleep
Talk about vietnam I guess
How the fuck so I find good apartments/houses/villas for rent in Vietnam. I've gone through 5 different websites and I just keep finding the same shitty tower hotels with no balconies.
you won't, unless you want pay a lot
just go to Thailand
Only want one for two weeks and I ser them fucking everywhere.
DS comp is terrible starting out (what I did). Sticking to SW eng fundamentals is more valuable and a safer path to high $
If you are looking for a DS role because you're actually more interested in it, I'd recommend looking for industries that are a bit more dated in technology but need these roles -- defense, real estate, traditional engineering, etc. Your projects will be more impactful (bonus points for having a real resume later on), you'll have more freedom to use the tools you want, and more opportunity to grow your skill set broad rather than narrow
Best area to stay in Saigon, District 1?
>One carry on and one personal item.
Maybe she was refused. How funny would that be.
"Refusing" just means they'll force the big bags to be checked in to the hold.

The rankings are a joke. Fucking Calgary is 4th for livability. Anons who have lived in many cities, show us a real list.

Chengdu is probably my favorite city.
Loved in China for 5 years in various parts, 2 of those in Sichuan’s capital, and man, I kinda wish all 5 were spent there. Massive city but super easy to get around. 3 major rivers snaking through the urban landscape providing much needed green space. Top tier food culture, tea houses everywhere, and enough expats to make it manageable when China overload occurs. And the weekend trips you can do are some of the best in all of China.

You don't say... you just found out now?
>>2336529 >DUDE I LOVE THE BUZZ OF THE CITYRINO!
/trv/ is worse than /int/, it's on par with redit.
Cities have all the big events, nice parties are a must, you'll regret it in your old age if you didn't have them.
Just ignore them, they're sour grapes fags, unfortunately on 4chan it comes with the territory. Most people on this board are more or less normal and capable of having getting ahead in life and just plain having fun, which is why young people move to cities in the first place.
Which travel destination has the best bird watching? I'm looking for a place that has unique birds not found much in California, my home state. Anyone see interesting birds while traveling?
If you get to Batumi right now, you'll still catch the tail end of the raptor migration. It's birdwatching on crack. Over 100k birds of prey on good days.

Keoladeo Park is pretty good

and that's a good thing. Thank you. I didn't know so many anons also like watching birds.
(rainf)orests are notoriously difficult to see anything in. Car park at the edge of the forest is where you'll see most birds
