Me and two friends wish to travel to Germany in March for a week. All three are 20-25 .
Our current plan stands at 4 nights at Berlin, 3 nights at Hamburg and one day at Kiel.
We wanted to visit one of us' relatives that lives in Kiel.
We contracted them and they told about the current situation in Germany not being... well.. safe.
We received a lot of stories about rape, murder and other kinds of violence.
I made a quick check (google), and got a nice result. pic related.
Any chance someone who lives there can share a little bit of opinion on the situation there?
Also, while i'm at it - our plan is as follows:
Berlin to Hamburg by train.
Hamburg to Kiel by Rental Car.
Any comment on our choice?
Anyone knows the price range, especially for the rental?
My google pages turned pink yet again searching for an answer.

Anyone here did birthright "Free 10 day trip to Israel?" My mother is pressuring me to go since I turn 27 by next summer and its the last chance I can do it.
My main worry is that I will be completely and utterly miserable due to sleep deprivation. In high school I went to some weekend or 3 day retreats with Jewish youth groups like USY and BBYO, and barely got any sleep because of people fucking around in the room all night long. The result being in zombie mode super tired for most of the trip and couldn't handle it. And if its a fast paced traveling trip its not like I can go back to the room and nap during the day if I need to. How is the sleeping arrangement, and do people actually get to sleep 7 hours a night or does everyone party all the time and barely sleep?
I also noted groups for aspergers and special needs, which claim to be slower paced and more relaxed. I have aspergers, but would be worried that the trip would be more for the full retard type of autists, and its not available in summer anyway as I just checked. I really would like to just go on a regular trip, one with local residents I can stay in touch with after, but am genuinely worried I'll be stuck with party people who don't mind sleeping 4 hours a day for 10 days, while I'm having microsleeps and no energy to socialize or enjoy myself. Give me your experiences please.
Also, how does the air travel work, and are there options to explore other places/extended travel plan as well?

Welp, I've dun goofd.
Got to Bangkok, thought about touring for three days and then heading to Vietnam.
For that I need a Visa.
Problem is that the embassy in Bangkok is closed from the 8-12th, and then there's a weekend. Thus, the next working day is the 15th. A problem when I fly out of bkk the 22nd to get home.
Options are as follow.
1- go to Myanmar instead, even though nam was to be the highlight of my trip.
2- hope for a one day processing the 15th and fly out instantly.
3- get a pre approval online with an urgent service that promises to work on holidays for 200bucks. (Are they legit?)
What would you do?
