Slim chance, but I gotta try: I've been tasked by the boss to to find a private jet charter, saving as much cash as possible. Without going into specific details: Western USA to North Africa to Middle East, back to Western USA. 5-7 passengers, 1500kg cargo. Amenities not important, just the travel. I'm mostly curious if anyone here can recommend a charter service or re-seller.
Working Holiday in Austraila

Starting in mid June or early July, my boyfriend and I are going to Australia for a year on the working holiday visas. I've looked around a lot online, but I still have some things that it'd be nice to have some more input on, especially from people with personal experience.
1. We're planning to earn most of our money by working on farms, does anyone have experience with this or have recommendations about how to find this work?
We will be doing WWOOF stuff in between places that pay, in order to avoid hostels as much as possible (they add up quickly when it comes to staying somewhere a week).
2. Any recommendations for gear? I'm talking about sleeping bags and tents that would work well for a year in different places around australia. We'll be using them at campsites in between places if we can't find anywhere to stay, or on a paying farm if they dont have anywhere to sleep and we will have to carry them in our backpacks so weight and size when stored is a big deal.
3. Personal stories? I'd love to hear some
4. I'm a professional photographer and I'm looking for a netbook or something that can run Adobe Lightroom so I can keep up with all the pictures I'll be taking. .It should be lightweight and we're open to the option of buying it in australia if it would be less expensive that way, any recommendations?
We are in Belgium and will be traveling to Istanbul and flying from there to Australia. Upon arriving we shoul
I'll be around to respond to stuff and answer questions if any more information is needed, thank you.

Weaboo currently in JET here. So apparently from my location in Japan (western Japan, nice and rural), we have a cheap ferry service to Vladivostok, Russia. I've never been to Russia, or any ex-communist country for that matter, much less far eastern Russia. Is Vladivostok worth visiting or is it just depressing commie blocks everywhere?

Am I crazy, /trv/?
I'm 18, and just finished my first year of college, living in NYC with my father. Now, I live in NJ with my mother, but I'm transferring to a university in Oregon. I'm inheriting $3000 or so, which I kind of want to spend on a trip, but I just don't know where. So then I figured, what about driving across the country when I move to Oregon? It'd mean that I wouldn't have to spend the money shipping stuff over, and I'd be able to have a fun fucking trip getting there.
But, I'm only 18, and I don't have a car. I could rent a car, but I know that insurance for people under 25 is ridiculous. I could buy a cheap car, but then I'll have to worry the whole trip that something is going to break on me. So I'm not really sure if a trip like this is feasible for me. I definitely do not want to do trains or buses or something either, I just really like the idea of a solo road trip across the US, since I'm moving across the country. So tell me, how can I go about this trip. And how can I convince my mother that I'm responsible enough to do this? She barely wanted me moving across the country, and is definitely against me doing stuff on my own. I'm pretty well-traveled for someone my age, and I've spent the past year essentially living on my own. Am I crazy for wanting to do a simple road trip?
