I'm going to visit my friends in Athens, Georgia and we are thinking of doing a daytrip to Savannah. I am definitely seeing the Historic District and Forsyth Park, but is there anything more specific that we can see or do? Any places where we can eat, see music etc? Obviously time is a factor so we can't do too much but I'm still interested in exploring the historic parts and grabbing a bite to eat.
Savannahian here. Savannah is great for drinking, eating, and just strollin' around. I'd do something roughly like this: park in a garage, walk to bull street, and then walk down bull street to Forsyth. Enjoy the sights. There's a decent coffee shop called sentient bean, on the southern edge of the park. Get caffeinated. Then walk back to downtown via bull. There's some places along the way where you can eat or drink, but I'd wait until you're truly downtown for the most options. Following bull you'll hit Broughton street (shopping and eating) and college Street (tons of drinking). It's worth continuing all the way to River Street for the river views, but the bars and restaurants are really touristy there.
You can do that in whatever order makes sense. But my main point is: eat and drink according to your tastes, and treat walking from place to place as an activity. Obviously there are museums and historical sites and a few small music venues too.
Been in Savannah 3 years now. Sly’s is one of the best places to grab something to eat. The menu consists of sliders with different meats and little hot dogs, so lots of different kinds to try! I go there often with friends. Green Truck is another place with great food too, amazing ingredients. If you go to Below Zero for desserts, go to the one on. ay Street and Barnard Street. Downtown is where you will want to go for bars, there are SO many and honestly change every few years because owning a bar here is difficult. SCAD is pretty much the main reason why there’s money being pumped into the area, I suggest visiting their museum to view some cool stuff.

Sorry meant to type “Bay Street and Barnard Street”
So this summer, I'm going to be in Munich, Germany for a couple of days, as part of an extended vacation from a cruise.
What are some things to do and see in Munich? I wanted to see Neuschwanstein castle, but I've heard that you'd have to spend a whole day to see it. Is it worth it?
If you want to go the Augustiner go here: Landsberger Str. 19, 80339 München, Deutschland
Its a bit off the tourist track and i like it more than the central ones. The hop smell is awesome too
Munich is a famous surfing location due to several streams having standing waves. The Eisbachwelle is the most famous wave there, but there are other ones as well. Munich is propably the best public place to see surfers in a close distance
What's the best way for transportation in there city though?
I really like the food in Germany, especially with the sausages, their really delicious.
Is this for Augustiner-Keller, or for Augustiner Bräustuben? Because I'm seeing several places with the name Augustiner.
I have never flown anything other than economy, but maybe some anon with more experience could enlighten me:
Are any of the upgrades worth the cost?
Business class seems expensive but maybe economy plus? And what about memberships?
I'm not a fucking Saudi prince. People on /trv/ can't afford a fucking suite on a long haul

Unless you want to flirt with the stewardesses, which is probably illegal now anyways, why would you bother paying more?
Qatar is actually constantly offering pretty good fares for their new QSuite business class.

What's your favourite American big city?
In what way is any city "fun" in ways that other cities are not? When any city gets to a certain size it's going to have the ethnic groups, food, activities, jobs and neigjborhoods that make cities fun. Your retarded question could be asked about any city that some untraveled rube wants to disparage.
To visit: NYC, DC
To live: Minneapolis/St. Paul
>very white and low crime for a metro this size >comfy city neighborhoods full of well-maintained craftsman homes >great parks and lakes everywhere >low cost of living, very good public schools, good university system >super nice people everywhere >still gets a real winter with tons of comfy snowstorms
You have to live in a major US city. It must have good public transit or walkability. You also have to realistically be able to afford it. Which do you pick?
I love NYC but I don't love the rent. Probably go with Seattle, Portland, Boston, Miami, or maybe Denver.
Sounds like oklahoma, The Bible Belt State.
So Chicago is fun because it has ethnic groups? lmao
Many cities have unique things that distinguish them from others. Usually this has to do with laws that allow certain activities that are banned elsewhere (24 hour bars etc.). Chicago isn't anything special if you've been to any other American cities. Not worth a visit tbqh.
Flying down to San Francisco for my Pop's 60th. He said to choose either North Cali or Socal. Which would you suggest? Where would you go? Why?

For what? you to explore?
nature, small towns, and stuff Northern cali. Cities and stuff Southern Cali
Anyone else moving to new places all the time?
I grew up in a terrible rust belt city in New York and didn't permanently move out till I was 21. Since then (4 years) I've lived in 7 places (one being all around the South Island of NZ for 11 months), usually intending for the place to become my permanent residence but it never ends that way. Within one month of living in my current locale I am again thinking about leaving once I finish my education. I'd like to get my Italian citizenship and travel to Europe. I don't know if I should be concerned with my inability to remain stable or if I should continually pursue my wanderlust until I find a place to call home.
Moving all the time comes with the inability to make long term friends, and with me being pretty introverted it's not exactly easy to meet anybody while out. The only people I talk to are the few family members who care enough to ask about my life.
Who has been traveling this way for a while now that can give me some /adv/? I'm stuck between my desire to see and experience new places and have lasting relationships, as I haven't had the latter in so long and I know how important they are in terms of happiness.
How do you not get depressed with literally 0 (zero) friends?
Here's a tip. Stop posting on 4chan and go out to a bar or a meetup or where you have to actually interact with people.
Uprooting your life and moving is going to get rid of most of your friendships, that's inevitable. And I think it takes at minimum like a year to build an authentic friendship, so if you are moving more often than that you're not going to have much luck.
This is not exactly /trv/, but I think there's no other adequate place to ask.
I'm from "lower than average" Portugal, the land of booming tourism and shitty economy. I feel the need to expand horizons and so I've decided to get my second degree (most likely graphic design) abroad. I really need to get the fuck away from this country.
However, I have a couple of restrictions:
I should have only about 5k saved up by the end of the year, which is not nearly enough for most school's tuitions. I have been researching about scholarships, but the prospects are not good for someone my age (27). Erasmus is out of the picture.
I need to know if I can get a job easily while I study on the locations I consider.
This one is disputable, but for some reason, dark and rainy weather really puts me down like nothing else can. I need to see the sun, if I'm gonna spend 3 or 4 years living there. This is more of a guideline rather than a restriction.
What I really need to ask here is, given those restrictions and considering the local culture and social environment, how well would I fare on some of these locations?
>Mexico (ayy drug lords lmao)
>Brasil (yeah I know)
>[any other south or central american country that I can consider]
I don't think I'd thrive in the USA's current political and economical turmoil, but let me know what you think.
I would avoid it, but I want to hear your opinion.
maybe, but the language barrier is a problem.
Chile? No, They are getting flooded by Venezuelans, haitians (living on welfare) and some peruvians... I'ts becoming the new Europe , you know...mass inmigration. Is expensive to live there and finding a job is hard.
I preffer france because Europe..And I'm already learning french. The education in france is cheap and has quality.
>>1375229 >The Netherlands and getting a job will probably be very hard.
Can anyone confirm? I (Irish) was considering studying here but would need to work 16 hours a week to get residency and therefore student loans
unless you have some real marketable skills that could land you a job at a big international company somehow, the odds of you getting a job in the Netherlands are slim to none. I dont wanna sound rude, but its the truth. All student jobs i've ever heard from require fluency in dutch. and even if thats not required, it is highly preferred which means dutch natives will have a big advantage. After all, student jobs here are easy jobs like a waitress in a restaurant or behind the counter in a shop. Student jobs are very popular here, so you'll naturally have a lot of competition.
>>1378187 >The education in france is cheap and has quality.
7k€ a year isn't cheap
>>1374779 >I don't think I'd thrive in the USA's current political and economical turmoil
What? You couldn't possibly notice "political turmoil" without specifically looking for it on tv or the internet or something. And the economy is doing great.
I'm a 23 years old uni dropout that absolutely hates his life and future prospects.
I have no marketable skills, but I can speak native Spanish and English.
What can I do? Is going to South East Asia to be an English/Spanish teacher a good plan? I've heard you don't really need academic qualifications to be a teacher there.
What kind of work can I find there? Those islands are in Puerto Rico so I guess everybody already speaks the two languages I know, and that leaves me on a terrible position.
>>1379141 >What kind of work can I find there?
hospitality, food service, landscaping, advertising, airport, boat tours,.
>Those islands are in Puerto Rico so I guess everybody already speaks the two languages I know, and that leaves me on a terrible position.
no that makes you really useful in hospitality . you can help bridge the gap between staff and tourists. you would be shocked at how many people only speak one of the two. it is not uncommon for a lot of workers to only speak spanish on there.

Join the foreign legion it's 5yrs pay is good don't need anything just knock on the door and be motivated to pass. One thing is you will probably do some fuck up things but it will help you grow up or kys

Just got back from Azerbaijan/Georgia. Awesome places, great food, pretty cheap, would go again; my only regret is the weather not being warmer, if I'd gone a month later it'd be nicer and the cities would look a lot better.
Tbilisi had more tourist things to do than Baku, although Baku definitely seemed cleaner and more modern. Crowds of tourists weren't a problem at all, if you go in summer there'll probably be lots more in Tbilisi.
Tell us about West Africa?
It should just be a borderless map overlaid with a grid. Fill in the squares you've been to. Wouldn't be biased by political boundaries and makes more sense than coloring in your trip to Cambodia one tiny hamlet at a time.
Just found out I have enough time this summer to travel, so I can go to thailand laos and vietnam. I'm real excited
I'll be there next month. Any of you fags been there?
he might be a radical leftist though
before you idiots tried to meme anyone not completely in support of muslim suicide bombers as being hitler incarnate, leftists hated israel more than even fucking "ebil neonahtsees"
as a moderate, I'd say visiting israel is a crime. undeniable israel is more functional than palestine, and the people probably nicer too. the problem is that israel is interfering in american elections, destroying entire cities full of palestinians, the global CENTER of human trafficking of living slaves for medical parts, trying to use the u.s. military against iran (no threat to us) and so on.
they're even trying to make private boycotts of israel an imprisonable felony
israel needs a complete remake if it is permitted to continue to be a country. stopping their political manipulation of OUR senate needs to be the first condition for not getting utterly leveled
the rohingya population doubled in the last decade. there is no genocide.
on the other hand, the rohingya in india are, like in myanmar, continuing to burn entire cities, capture children, and sell them into slavery NGOs have a bad habit of preventing victims from fighting back, merely encouraging slave traders if you track countries by if the UN entered or not, the countries the UN entered NEVER recover. like somalia consider this your yearly dose of reality, you barely literate libarts major idiots that get your info from facebook
>>1378120 >the global CENTER of human trafficking of living slaves for medical parts

check out the crazy guy everyone
gas yourself nigger, just be happy they were able to remove kebab before it got more out of hand. Its almost like you want a low level war that lasts decades and kills thousands instead of a swift but painful relocation.
