I’ll be traveling overseas soon, and am wondering if a smart phone would be secure enough (instead of hauling around a laptop) for things like booking a hostel, etc. and maybe doing some minimal online banking. Granted, I would be taking all of the normal precautions such as using a VPN app, password manager, long password on my phone, etc.
My gut tells me that the inherent/default security of a smart phone would be a lot less than a laptop.
Let's get real, why are there people who think they have to go Sweden or Finland to experience lakes and woods while Brandenburg (Germany) looks the same, is more comfy, cheaper and can be combined with visiting Berlin, the Spreewald or Poland?
These people do this solely because they are faggots, right?
This question is especially relevant regarding German people and others who live closer to Berlin than to Sweden. I started to think this is yet another instance of German self-hate in action.
I'm off to live in Ras Tanura in Saudi, working through a contractor for Aramco as an ITC Teacher. I did 2 years in Kuwait, which was no big deal, so I should be able to get by alright here.
Still, I'm wondering if there are any tips people can give me. Has anyone lived here? What's worth seeing while I have the opportunity? Any advice? I have to find my own accommodation, so does anyone know about the process?
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 didn't you warm me that this is a complete shithole? No one speaks English, German, Dutch, French for that matter. I don't know any more languages but they only know Hungarian. How nice in a Tourist city. So far the food I've ordered has always been cold and just plain disgusting. The Zoo was nice. Besides that I haven't found any fun or interesting things to do here. Stay away, everyone! This isn't even bait but 1) a honest warning 2) hoping for an anon to help me out since I'll be here until Saturday.
