The South region characterizes a mild weather, with its beautiful mountains, fields and prairies, it is an invitation to go and be welcomed by a people descent from Europeans but with its true Brazilian identity, known for their hospitality and eternal joy.

For my uni me and 4 others are organizing a trip next may. We're busy with working out where to go now. We've got 5 potential destinations so far, and each of us has got the job to find out some stuff about one of them so we can pick the definitive destination next monday.
I've been given the task to find out some things about Corsica.
Any of you have any experience with it?
We're expecting about 40 people to come. All of them students, between ages 18 and 25ish. Male and female. Do you think Corsica would be a place where we can have fun for 5-7 days next may?
We're looking for a nice balance between relaxing, partying (nightlife) but also seeing some museums or other historic landmarks. Can you guys tell me something about Corsica? Specifically with the eye on those three things.
As I said, we're all students. This means that money can be quite tight for some people. Do you think Corsica is very expensive? Ryanair flies directly from our city to Marseille so maybe we can find a very cheap flight, so I'm talking hostels and food and all that jazz, what to expect for expenses there?
Cheers in advance.

here's the thing (hi),
I'm travelling through South America, and my backpacking is pretty neat until I get to Cuzco. From there, I can't figure what to do. Thing is: I want to get to Santiago, Chile, but first I would like to make a Salar de Uyuni 3-day tour. And I thought of 2 ways for it:
- first is getting a bus from Cuzco to Arequipa (stay there for a couple days, see the canyons) and then go to La Paz, where I'd find some agency that could get me to Uyuni (saw something around U$30,00/day). Then I'd go back to La Paz and get a flight (U$250,00, cheaper than from Arequipa and Lima) to Santiago.
- or, from Arequipa, get buses until I get to Calama, then to San Pedro de Atacama (where I would be able to get a tour to the Moon Valley as well) and then get a tour to the Salar de Uyuni. Back to San Pedro, I'd get a straight bus to Santiago (if that's possible), or come back to Calama and get this bus (and yes, spend more than a day in a bus). Or, go back to Calama and get a flight to Santiago (U$200,00).
I'm more inclined to go with the second option, and get the flight from Calama to Santiago.
Can someone help me with tips and opinions?
Thanks a lot.

Hello, /trv/! I feel like this is the chan the most related for the incoming post, so sorry in advance if this kind of threads is not welcome here.
I'm currently raising money with a group of 10 to go on a humanitarian trip in Dominican Republic. I will post a link to a website where you can donate to help us.
I have lived in Canada since birth, and only left my country once. In fact, I went in Dominican Republic on another humanitarian trip a few years ago. That year, we had to sell 150+ bags of oranges in a month to win a place on that trip, it was a lot of work, but it paid off. We left for 2 weeks to live in poor families and share their lifestyle, while building a house for a family of 3 very poor elder siblings who could barely eat and get dressed. Overall, it was a very enriching experience, and I am willing to share more details if anyone is interested.
I would really want to go back, but the fundraising is hard in my little suburban town. We found out about this website just recently and we’re trying our luck on this website. Here is the link if anyone feels generous tonight. Even one-dollar donations are welcome!
I will be back tomorrow to answer any questions, share my previous experience, or give more details about my incoming trip!
Have a good night /trv/, and thanks in advance for any donator.
