Going to be in both Pago Pago and Apia next week. Has anybody been to either?
I like eating local food, and I don't know if either of these places eat coconut crab, but if they do I'm down.
bump. also I spelt Samoa right and wrong in the same sentence.

So fuck them on here then.
Ok /trv/, my gf and I have just booked a 6-day trip to Cancun. The only things we have in our minds is swim with the dolphins (her) and go to Chichén Itzá (me). Other than that, what must see stuffs would you recommend for a budget couple? I speak Spanish (she doesn't) and it's her first international travel.
So I'm a Finn mysef but I've lived in other countries for 10+ years. I've lived in Japan for 2 yrs now.
Out of all the places I've traveled to / lived in, only the Japanese are even remotely as socially autistic as the finns. I would even say that compred to finland, japan has a larger general proportion of turbo autists, while that seems more limited in scope in finland
Prove me wrong /trv/
Definitely Rovanniemi and northern parts are nice, both summer and winter time.
I forget where but in Karelia-ish area you can still visit old WW2 trenches.
Besides that Turku is pretty sweet and åland is beautiful in the summer
Yes but slavs can carry a conversation a little better and arent afraid to call you out on your bs
Yeah, I guess that's true.
I think the Japanese are the Englishmen of Asia. Stuck up, they think they are better than everyone, and in some cases they are, but mostly their shit just stinks the same as shit in other places.
I'm planning on spending the majority of one day in the Louvre, another day I'm going to walk past the Eiffel tower (afaik a tourist trap, still want to see it). Apart from that I don't have any major plans. Just want to experience the city, visit a few used book shops, eat good food.
Any recommendations for a ~4 day solo trip this winter?
Yeah you gotta do some touristy shit but it doesn't all have to be cliche. When you go to the Eiffel Tower, I recommend you go to a restaurant not too far away called La Camponella. I've been there twice on separate trips to Paris and it's one of the few restaurants in the area that isn't a tourist trap. Both groups of my friends loved it and the food was quite good. I would recommend the roast duck with the honey balsamic glaze. The nice thing about that place also was that we were sitting next to actual Parisians hanging out with friends. You get a genuine feel of that Parisian style cafe life so I particularly liked that place for that as well.
Also, there's a a pretty good nightlife scene in the area around Notre Dame so look up some bars and see what you like. Also, I found the metro to be very easy to navigate so I would also recommend using that as a means of transportation
Thanks for the advice, and that restaurant looks fantastic! Yeah, my main goal is to enjoy my time, experience the city, don't be in a rush, go shopping if I want to, whatever.
I don't need to see the best things Paris has to offer, I want to get to know the city.
Any bakeries you'd recommend? I've read that there're basically supposed to be two good ones in every single street, but even those have to have differences.
Last time I went I stayed at an airbnb right on Reu Surcouf just around the corner from the Alexander III bridge, which is a pretty good jump off to walk around the city. The Louvre is a nice walk along the river not terribly far away. There was this pink bakery a couple blocks away from where we were staying with a beautiful French girl working there now that I think about it, but I forget the name of the place. But basically like you said it was just a random bakery on a small side street that was amazing. I'm convinced no bakery can survive if they're not at least amazing because all of them are. If I lived in France I would eat so much bread all the time, I hate the bread we have here in America, it's not even close. But yeah, just walk around and you'll see a bakery eventually that looks legit and it almost definitely will be.
That being said, I'd recommend you do exactly what you have planned out, my buddies and I did the same. We would walk around the city for hours and just get to know the city, maybe do like one or two touristy things a day and then in between we'd stop and eat something or just get beers after Notre Dame cause we could. There's a lot to see in Paris and if you try to cram it all in on a short trip it's gonna be like you're working or something. Check out a few touristy things and then just drink wine whenever you want and eat great.
>>1495658 >Yeah, I thought about the catacombs, but it would probably just be something I'd do because it's an attraction you should do when in Paris, not something I'd particularly want to do, you know?
Oh, for sure. Paris was my first traveling experience and I realized pretty quickly that I wasn't that into going to places just because you're "supposed to" go to them. Not sure where you're from, but being American, the architecture and layout of the city was so novel and interesting that I had a lot of fun doing what the other anon is describing, visiting a few planned locations each day but spending the rest of the time roaming around.

Shakespeare and Company is actually quite old, but since it's so close to Notre dame it adapted to the environment.
If you want to wander through the city a ballad on the Quai de seine is almost always worth it. that and the Quartier Latin are always good for a walk. Stop at the Arenes de Lutèce (old roman ruins converted into a park.) if you want a quiet, cozy park to chill a few minutes in. Should you have gotten there in summer you'd have seen poeples playing pétanque and kids around but hey, still good to visit.
Came back there to pass some entry exams. Avoid gare du nord at all costs,especially during rush hour as it somehow got worse. im not even sure how they managed that
Looking to take a train ride to Seattle at the end of March/early April. Never been there before so i ask what the weather will be like then, and if there's enough for a single guy to do there if i;m not tryng to be a hipster. Will I need to rent a car to see the mountains or can i do everything in the city on foot? Probably will be there 4-5 days
You'll probably have to rent a car to see the mountains. I'd recommend going on a hike such as Big Si or rattle snake ridge. Big Si will give you good mountain views.
For good views of the city i'd recommend Alki Beach. There are popular bars and restaurants all along the road and you have a very good view Seattle. For bar hopping everyone goes to Capital Hill. You could also go to bars around the UW area depending on how old you are.
Seems like the general thought is that late march would still be a bit too cold to go, Saving money on train tickets might not be worth it If I'm going to be cold all the time. It's just going to be me, and I;m really interested in the architectural sights no so much the bars
March is very unpredictable in the PNW. Could be nice, could be shitty. Also as other anons have mentioned a lot of the mountains will still be snowed in. It's not uncommon for parts of the Cascades to remain snowed in until April or even May.
If you go in the early fall you'll still have the same odds with rain and cold but the mountains will be a lot more accessible.
well shit, guess I'll try for the fall then
the underground tour is kind of interesting, some cool dive bars in fremont if youre into that.
So me and the gf have about 10 days for vacation this spring, and we want to check out somewhere in Central Europe. We're thinking of separating the time between Prague and Bavaria
I have a few questions on both.
First, is that time frame doable for both regions? I was figuring about 3-4 days in Prague, with the rest in Bavaria. I was thinking of taking either a train or a bus from Prague to Munich and then using Munich as a home base.
Prague seems like a meme to me. Is flying into there a nightmare? What's there to do that isn't filled with con artists and pickpockets? Is it a particularly gf friendly destination or is it as scummy as I've read on here?
Is it better to rent a car in Germany or will public transport suffice if I want to get around, especially for those smaller alpine towns? What are must experiences in that part of Germany? Also, is Munich worth spending time in or would it be better to go to a smaller town like Nuremberg or Bamberg?
Not OP but is U Fleku a meme? That black lager looks super comfy
Bamberg is a cozy student city with beautiful architecture and lots of small breweries. In the summer we often do beer hikes around there, where we hike from brewery to brewery and have a beer and some food at each stop. The scenery is nice, but the Alps in the south are obviously more impressive. Everything is going to be cheaper there as well. You could grab a local meal with a beer for 8-9 Euros in a traditional restaurant. It might be hard to get around without speaking German though
would like to know about the rental car thing as well. I assume as all these countries are part of 'Schengen' it is possible. Perhaps you may even drop the car in another country.
I know both countries are Schengen, but I’ve heard German car rental places won’t let you take cars into countries like Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland etc. On the other hand, I know Czech Republic is a little more run down than Germany, so I’m worried about the quality and price of renting a car there.
What are the roads like in the Alps? The last time I rented a car was in Ireland a few years back and if the roads are anything like that, I’d rather avoid it
bumping for car rental info
Anyone here ever been to Pakistan?

Old thread is long gone.
I mean senior medical doctor in major hospitals.
I'm sure it's different in tier 1 cities but here, they end up making about 20k/month after all the 'gifts' and things are included, it's complicated because salary is only part of it and there are a lot of red packets and things like surgeries are kind of billed to the hospital and paid separately. They often donate their surgery work either out of charity for very poor families or guanxi.
I have a few doctors in my in-laws.
no, at most 1 week
