Hey, /trv/, any advice on how to secure a job in France, OR other similar European countries? Assuming that visas etc. aren't an issue.
I'd be grateful for any advice on cultural differences in preparing an application/résumé/CV/letter to the employer and interview etiquette, for example.
Also, how well are foreign employees in low-level service positions expected to be able to speak the language?

I'm heading to Taiwan in a week for 1 month, specifically Taipei, and I'm wondering how much I'm looking at spending per day over there for a decent holiday. I have friends who I'm staying with so I won't be spending anything on accomodation, and I have enough friends over there to show me around for free.
Honestly most of my money will be spend on drinking and food, and I'm not planning to buy much in the way of goods (clothes, electronics, etc) So far I've budged about NT$2000 per day, and from basic googlefu it seems that should be plenty considering there'll be days I won't be spending anything. Can you guys give me some advice/experience as far as spending in Taipei goes?

I live in a small city near SE MI. I dont make a habit of traveling often as it never really appealed to me before.
Although I have been out to places such as Chicago, LA, Orlando and Niagara Falls, it was always with at lease one friend and never as a lets see what happens kind of deal.
I have several weeks of vacation time that I need to put in before Dec 31 and thought I might try and take such a trip.
Where does /trv think I should go? I would love to hear suggestions and related rational.
If one strikes my fancy, Id be willing to share photos of said excursion.
