Planning an adventure

No.1291735 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey /trv/. I want to go to pic related in 678 days. I've got a little less than 2 years to plan.

I don't make tons of money, but I'm guesstimating it'll be about 5 to 7k USD, and I can probably come up with that by then. Not enough to hire a travel agency, but maybe enough to DIY it.

I figure I'll need to know
-some spanish
-Ocean navigation
-ocean meterorology
-how to drive a boat
-types of boats good for ocean journeys

What else am I overlooking? From around Chicago btw.

Hi /trv/,
I'll visit Amsterdam for a weekend with a few friends at the end of August.
What are the nicest places to visit, which are overrated?
Preferably it should all stay relatively cheap.
Thanks in advance.

Why so many eastern euro girls working at the beach over the summer?

In Ocean City, Delaware this week. Every surf shop has a hot, white euro (I assume eastern euro from the accent) chick at the counter. Why?

I need some advice on surviving Russian winter.

Next month I'm beginning a teaching contract in St. Petersburg. I grew up on the gulf coast and winter is little to nothing here, it'll snow maybe once a decade. I bought a down insulated coat and know I should get some gloves. Otherwise I need advice on the various particulars of living in the cold and any other suggestions you guys might have.

I found a job living and working on a ski resort in Germany. I am planning on saving up as much as I can for a time to build up a financial cushion, get a tax number, and then look for another job.

I'm an American with a BA and no real marketable skills. I think I am a fine writer, and I know Latin and Chinese, but these don't go far without other specifications it seems.

Am I doomed to teach English? If so, I am wondering about all of the fulltime kindergarten offerings I am seeing. They say they want a degree in education along with relevant work experience. My degree is in Classics, but all I have is some experience teaching English to adults in China when I studied there abroad. I am wondering if that kind of stuff is negotiable. I imagine native English teachers are more of a rarity in Germany because of what seems to be a higher barrier of entry compared to a place like China. In my mind this gives me hope that I might land such a position, but I don't know much about the red tape that might be lurking to trip me up.

I don't mean to dwell so much on that option however. I am looking for any ideas that would be feasible for a recent grad. I am willing to work anywhere, and I anticipate my German would be pretty good by the time I begin to look for jobs (I took two semesters at college). Am I dreaming too big? Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.
