Not long ago there was a thread about Bernkastel-Kues in Germany. I'm actually going to Frankfurt this weekend, and have a car and some free time. So I plan to drive there and take a picture of the town sign with a Bernkastel printout for the nice people of /trv/ and post it! I dunno which kind of picture to use, though, so you can give me suggestions. I've seen previous pictures and they all had an evil Bernkastel. I'd prefer something more cute.
Yes, I really plan on doing this. If you have any suggestions on what picture of Bernkastel to print and display next to the sign I'll try it.

I'm going to China for a year as an exchange student, but I'm not sure where to go.
Hello, I'm a european studying Chinese as my major and I will go to China for one year as an exchange student starting next summer. I was in Taiwan last summer but I've never been in the mainland, so I'm wondering if some people here can help me make a decison on to which chinese university to go study at.
I am pretty much clueless and I have to make a decision in 2 weeks. Any help/tip/advice is very welcome..
These are the universities I can go to (The one that are partnered with my home university)
Hunan Normal University
Central University for nationalities Beijing
South Central University for nationalities Wuhan
Zhongnan University of economics and law
Institut Lingnan de l’Université Sun Yat-sen
Beijing language and culture University
MIN ZU University of China
University Sun Yat Sen Guangdong (Canton)
I can also go in Taiwan (Taida, Tamkang, TsingHua, Shida), but since I was there last summer I think I want to change up and go to the mainland. (not definitive..)
Please share your experience if you have ever been to one of these universities, or if you are/were/will be a exchange student in China,
Thanks in advance, I can't wait to get there!

I'm going to travel around Europe (and in the future probably outside as well) using my car. It's an easy way to get around, I can bring more luggage ánd I have a place to sleep in case I can't find cheap accomodations.
I'm a big lover of Couchsurfing.com and similar sites, but now I'm looking for ways to make money while I'm on the road. I've got a freetime job as a Graphic Designer which allows me to work online from various wi-fi spots in the bigger cities, but I don't want to be stuck behind my computer for too long, and the work that they offer is limited.
What are some easy ways to earn money? Any kind of information is welcome, I'm trying to soak it all in and learn as much as possible! Thanks in advance.

So after lurking /trv/ for a while to see what type of jobs are good for someone who wants to travel, one thing I have seen mentioned fairly frequently is working on an oil rig. I have also seen people mention working rotations of 3 months on, 3 off, 6 months on 6 months off. As I research these jobs outside /trv/, most seem to mention rotations of 2 weeks on, 2 off, or a month on month off. So can anyone share some info on how to get these jobs with longer rotations, or perhaps share ideas for other jobs where you can work very hard for a few months and then have a few months to travel?

Planning a Japan trip in early april next year.

2, Any suggestions for no touristy stuff? I'm looking for interesting experiences and don't mind standing out.
3, Touristy suggestions welcome.
4, Looking for a baller resturant. Again, not a touristy joint. Price isn't an issue.
Thanks in advance!
