/diy/ was little help, so I thought I'd put it on this board. If this shouldn't be here, please let me know, thanks!
Hey, /trv/ Planning to take several semesters off from college and live the life of a traveling vagabond. The purpose of this is several fold.
1) Explore a much greater scope than what I've had the opportunity. Also spend more time in areas I did enjoy.living next to a city for more than half of your life (13 years) gets old.
2) Spend more time with mother nature.
3) Have the opportunity to experience this before I develop strong obligations, or become physically incapable or unwilling to try these things.
Any general ideas to help me with this idea?
I have a (paid for) 2007 Chevy Colorado, about $1600 in savings and my minimum monthly obligations (insurance/cell phone/basic food bills) are $450 a month.
For income I plan to:
Do side work on people's computers/networks etc.
possible internship for a season. >https://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/internships/
Maybe even find a nice situation where I can plant roots.
I'm a very likeable person and it's managed to get me to where I am today, so I should have no problems, but any help or experience you guys have is welcome!

I have a simple question for you, but first some background story. :)
Me and a friend are planning a trip to Canada. We will be going from Calgary, and to where ever we damn well please.
I just need to know one thing:
At the age of 18, with a valid drivers license, from Denmark, will i be able to rent a car in Calgary, and how much should i expect it to cost?

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?
