My girlfriend and I want to go ski the Canadian rockies. Preferably starting in Calgary, and finishing in Vancouver. What are the best resorts to hit along the way?
Fly into Calgary on Friday morning at 7am, rent a car, drive out to Sunshine Village for the day, and stay overnight in Canmore.
Saturday we would be at Lake Louise, then back to Canmore for the night.
On Sunday we would spend the morning in Banff, then drive to Revelstoke in the afternoon, and stay there to ski the next day on Monday.
Monday after Revelstoke, we would drive to Big White in Kelowna, and ski Tuesday and Wednesday.
Drive to Vancouver on Thursday, spend the evening there, drive to Whistler on Friday and ski for two days.
Back to Vancouver on Sunday to return the car and fly home.
pic related, it's Revelstoke.

Good evening, /trv/! Britfag here, with some experience of living in France, and also Switzerland (german part).
Tomorrow morning I am going to Linz for one night (job interview), and then to Vienna for the weekend.
I guess this is a dual-purpose thread. What can you guys tell me about Linz? I was there last summer and thought it was a bit boring... but I've read about techno raves and it was apparently European Capital of Culture at some point (but then again, so was Liverpool, so I'm not sure how prestigious that award is). I might end up living there if I get this job.
As for Vienna, I've been there a few times and know it a little bit (pic related), but I'm taking a girl there this time... anything we can do that girls like?
Thank you, Austriafags, in advance! :)

Hi /trv/lers, first time posting. i'll try to make this as general as possible so more people can gain ideas from this.
Me and 2 friends are organizing a roadtrip from the netherlands, across france and spain to portugal. i was wondering if anyone knew of any places in Belgium, France, Spain or Portugal that are absolutely must see spots.
Naturally beautiful spots, nice cities, impressive geology, good food. anything you can think of.
I've looked around a bit and found a couple national parks in spain at least. are these worth going to? and are they easy to drive through or to and away from without adding too much time to the whole trip?
Thanks a lot for any answers

Anyone here from LA? I live with my mom right now, and I am completely penniless, but I'm also totally miserable and I frustrated with myself. I know what I want to do, which is move out there and get myself together. I haven't spoken to her about this, and I'm sure she would give me a little support because she wouldn't want me to be homeless. The truth is, I kind of want to be, at least for awhile. If I sell off all my possesions, including my car, I imagine I'll get somewhere around 2k total.
Has anyone done something similar with more or less money? For those of you in LA, what is the area like, is there a place to stay for the night that is relatively safe? I don't plan on leaving until the beginning of March, and even then I'm not sure which method of travel I'll take, bus or plane. I want to drop everything when I do, which isn't much, but that would include my computer, my phone, everything. So I want to get as much information as possible before I finally do it.

I'm graduating in July, but where I live all the jobs for my area start in March. As such, I'm looking into going travelling/backpacking around Europe for about 4 months, August-November.
I've never been there before, so I figured I'd come ask you guys. Where would you go? What were the highlights from your travels there? What are the must do's, must go places, and the stuff I should avoid?
Currently looking at hitting all the main places, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, but is there anywhere else I should go to as well?

So, good people of the land of /trv/, what are your favorite airlines?
What airlines would you suggest to avoid?
Of course i know about skytrax, but i'd rather talk about some personal experiences. do you know an airline where you'd say the skytrax rating is wrong?
Maybe also mention how much you have been flying. An anon that has only flown twice in his life might not neccessarily be able to judge who might be the worlds bestest airline, but of course it would still be an interesting view on the comfort/service/performance of an airline, especially since it would come with an "outside" view.
