Hey /trv/, I have a question regarding a move I might be making
Recently, i've been seriously considering moving to Alaska, specifically Juneau or Anchorage. I've only been to Alaska once back when I was 10 and i'm now 29. I live in southern California and i'm just tired of living here, I mean I was born and raised here and I really want a change of scenery. I really feel like Alaska suits me, I love the scenery, the weather and the remoteness that comes with being in a state so far attached from the rest of the country.
Does anyone here live in Alaska? Can you offer me any advice? Is it generally expensive? Or cheap? What kind of work can I hope to secure?
Any help would be appreciated

My friend and I decided to go on a trip to Netherlands and England at August 2016.
Now, it's going to be my first time abroad without my parent, and first time to be in those countries.
So, we're planning to stay at my friend's family not far from Amsterdam for 4/5 days, and then London for 3 days, and a weekend in Reading Festival.
Now, I want to know how much money, (not include flights), should we bring?
We'd like to eat some street food in Amsterdam, go to a musical in London, and nothing more.
But, we need cheap hostels to stay in for 2 nights at least around London.
I would like to hear about the transport in London (is it cheap?)
And transport from Amsterdam to London, too.

Newb here, what are some basic but essential /trv/ protips that you've learned?
>When looking for a place to eat, the best bet is almost always somewhere that appears to have a lot of locals eating
>Avoid places that have a lot of tourists eating like the plague, it's not uncommon for tour guides to get paid off by restaurants in exchange for bringing their groups there (actually, where I live, eating out at the highest bidder is standard practice for guides). Going to a place with a lot of tourists will almost guarantee you at-best-mediocre, and ridiculously overpriced food.
>Avoid tourist zones like the plague, this also guarentees shitty, ridiculously overpriced food
>If you can speak the local language, always address your waiter in it and never ask for a menu in English/your native language. Many restaurants deliberately jack up prices on these.

I'm spending August-December in either Canberra, Australia or Salzburg, Austria for college. No one from my school has ever done Salzburg, and the people who visited Canberra just partied on the beach. Anyone have advice? I want to do Austria, but everyone at my college pushes Canberra. My room, board, and plane tickets are fully funded either way.
Any helpful info on:
Cost (local pricing/expenditures for visiting sites/exploring)
Ease of regional travel
Cheap/free things to do/explore
Any other helpful info?
