I'd like to go to Cuba sometime in the not so distant future, but I don't know when yet. Should I go as soon as possible? Or do you think Cuba won't change much between now and a few years time? I don't want to risk seeing the propaganda replaced by advertisement, and the old timers replaced by modern cars.
Also, should I go in the summer, when it's amazingly hot, or in the winter when it's peak season?
I don't mind hot temperatures thát much, but of course, 25 is more pleasant than 35. I've been in various hot places in the middle of summer (Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Yerevan) and I found it bearable.
How about the peak season? Naturally prices inflate. But also those of casas particulares?
Also, can I easily exchange Euros or CUCs to CUPs?
I will likely go alone, but casas generally rent rooms at full price, right? So I'd still pay as if there were two of us? Are there also casas who do this differently?
Also general Cuba thread!

Tomorrow I travel from Chile to England for 8 months. I'll be a Spanish Language Assistant at a school there.
I have never taken an airplane, and I have never left this country.
Would you appease my nerves by wishing a good trip and telling me things that I should know from my destination.
I have the visa, sponsorship letter, school letter, passport, boarding pass and did the check in, so I should be good to go.

Hello, I come from a group of international folks that enjoy chatting about international things including travel, cultural differences, history, video games, international politics, life, sports etc. and we are looking for a few new members of specific origin: we could use more germans, black people, asians, and eastern europeans: regardless of gender. we all met through 4chan and we have a blast chatting and bullshitting with eachother on skype: as a heads up we are openly racist towards each other in a joking matter, so if you can't handle racism, it's not the chat for you, though it's all in fun. if you are interested, drop your skype handle below and ethnicity / nation of origin and we will add you to the chat.

I need to do an 3 months internship in computer science. I have two choices : Mainz in germany, or Montreal in Quebec. I'm French.
On one hand, Germany is nice for the language (english will be the working language) and I kinda want to work in English, also the content of the internship will be interesting (it would be in a research laboratory). I don't know where to find somewhere to sleep though.
On the other hand, Montreal is great for the distance and for the culture, but there wouldn't be the fun of speaking a language I don't know. Finding a place to sleep wouldn't be a problem there as a college would do it for me. The content of the job is unknown.
The budget is not a problem.
What do you think is the best ? Have you lived there ? I know those are two complete opposite choices, but that's the reason why it's hard to choose.

I need an answer quickly, basically I'm about to attempt hidden city for the first time and from what I'm seeing in online articles is that they'll cancel the rest of my trip and I don't care, I'm on my return trip, stopping over in my home town and connecting onward only to have to drive back to my home town. Since I'm already checked in, it checked me in for both flights, first and second leg. Should I just no show for the second leg or be polite and tell them I won't be boarding? I'm worried that since I'm checked in for the second leg they'll hold the plane for passengers that are already having beers at a bar in their home town.

This idea seems to produce good threads on the porn boards, let's try it here.
Post a travel pic that has something in common with the last one posted. Let us know if you've been there, and if it's your pic.
Because /trv/ is more than just a picture board, share a tip, fact or observation if you can.
Pic related. Avebury, England, my pic. Near Stonehenge, a much larger monument, and unlike Stonehenge you're still allowed to wander among the stones and get up close. In fact, part of the small town is within the ditch-and-mound of the monument. Decent pub for lunch there.
Moving to Croatia

I don't even know where to post this, haven't been on 4chan for a while.
Anyway, I'm in deep trouble. Long story short, I fell in love with a croatian girl last year. Not gonna go into detail otherwise I'd be here all night long.
I gotta move there, pretty much.
I have a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering and I'm enrolled in a Masters of Industrial Engineering atm. Thing is, we're talking about Croatia, so finding a job there as a foreigner isn't gonna happen (in engineering, at least). Plus I only have ~2 years of work experience, so meh.
You guys are all knowledgeable about surviving abroad and stuff, how feaseable is it for me to try and find a job there (like at a hostel or something, just enough to get by) and continue my studies there?
Or other tourism jobs, though right now I doubt that would work as well. I just need enough money to survive while studying / looking for a proper job.
Hungary would work as well. I've been sending like 10 CV's a day to Croatia/Hungary but I'm kinda desperate, so yeah.
If you guys can give any pointers that'd be great. Thanks.

I'm looking to travel to Finland, possibly permanently. I'd love to learn more about the culture, the people, even the sights to see and food to eat, from people who have experienced it first-hand. Hell if there's even any Finnish "Pen pal"s out there, it'd be fantastic to have that kind of connection.
Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou

So, thanks to a price war between Cathay Pacific and United Airlines, I am going to Hong Kong at the end of April for 7 days. I'm looking at spending the most time in Hong Kong, but with a day or so in Macau and Guangzhou. I've got plenty of time to research things and figure out where to go, already got the Lonely Planet guide. But I figure there are a hand full of folks here that have been there before and wonder if anyone has any suggestions on things to do, places to go, what to see. I do plan to abuse the ferries, since I love that shit. The girlfriend wants to go see some of the temples, which is fine by me.
