I want to go back to romania.


yoghurt  said about 2 years ago:

I know Im heading to Cairns and Hamilton island in late March. Nothing to grand or exciting.

The other plan is to get to Europe, Morocco and West Africa later in the year, but we will see how we go with that one.


chickenchops  said about 2 years ago:

Somewhere close to home that can be done in two weeks. Frontrunner is Japan.


untold/animals  said about 2 years ago:

NZ? Indonesia?


yoghurt  said about 2 years ago:

NZ would be a good 2 week one. Depends what sort of holiday you want I guess.

Melbourne

Bundoora, Glen Iris, Fitzroy. Really wanting to explore some exotic locales. Really stretch myself. And with a family this is going to be tough.

Any tips?

chrowens  said about 2 years ago:

Long shot but here it goes: This year I'm studying abroad in the US, and beforehand I'm doing a couple of cheap tours, first around NY and then down to the Grand Canyon, San Fran. Some of which will involve camping.

Obviously I need my laptop for uni once it starts, but I really don't want to carry it around for the tours. Has anyone had a similar issue?

Is it reliable and cheap to have someone later send the laptop to my college address from Australia? Or is there a way to store the laptop in a safe box or something and pick it up after the tours? Any other better ways?


rawr  said about 2 years ago:

where are you studying, chrowens? i'm heading stateside to study too. Sounds like there are a couple of other chats doing/have done the same.


rawr  said about 2 years ago:

(no idea about the laptop thing though)


chrowens  said about 2 years ago:

That's great rawr, I'm off to the University of Texas in Austin. Where are you studying?


hsdfauof  said about 2 years ago:

I don't know how you guys afford studying abroad, unless it's some kind of exchange program your'e going on.


rawr  said about 2 years ago:

Nice one! I'm going to SUNY at Buffalo, NY.

I think Nabila is on exchange at Columbia in NYC at the moment too?


hsdfauof  said about 2 years ago:

This thread is depressing.


chrowens  said about 2 years ago:

Yeah I'm on an exchange program, so no extra uni fees or anything. Accommodation is a little expensive but it's definitely manageable. And from all reports should be a great experience


ashtray  said about 2 years ago:

I'm thinking a trip to Chicago in November. Start in LA, bus to San Fran, bus to Portland and then fly to Chicago. Logical series of travel, yeah?


rawr  said about 2 years ago:

And from all reports should be a great experience

Totally. All the texans I've met have been lovely people, for what it's worth.

I'll be a very poor international student, but cost of living in buffalo is pretty cheap from what I can gather. I should start a thread for OS/exchange students on here...


chickenchops  said about 2 years ago:

Fuckit, I'm going to sneak off to Beijing in November for a week with an expat mate. Seems cheap as and will also include a year of Chinee dog-eating jokes from my dad.


HEB  said about 1 year ago:

Melbourne

*again

Hey ashtray, this might be ancient news for you but I did this trip, in reverse order, the last time I was Stateside.. Instead of buses, however, I took rideshares from Craigslist. I paid $30-$40 in gas for each trip, met some kinda kooky people and managed to avail of homestays in both cases. I've also done this I-5 route before on the Greyhound bus and it's fine, but I've heard it's getting expensive. My flight from Chicago to Portland was around $200.


dimestorehood  said about 1 year ago:

In answer to your question, yes a good 1-2-3-4.
