Recommendations on where to go (no Schengen)


by @jaunis |  | 4 comments

Hello everyone! This is Juan from Argentina.

I am currently based in Cluj (Romania) and looking for options once my tourist visa runs out of days, the Schengen area is not an option due to the same reason. My current options are either the Balkans (Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia), Bulgaria, Turkey or Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia). Timeframe: between JAN/FEB18 to MAR/APR18.

The criteria would include:

  • Rent below or around 600 EUR / mo
  • Reliable and fast internet connection
  • Safe
  • Gay friendly

By โ€œgay friendlyโ€ I mean that you can have a personal/romantic/sexual life without fearing for your personal safety.

Thoughts?
PS. My โ€œgo toโ€ websites for deciding stuff like this are Numbeo and Nomadlist, if you got any other data aggregator alike please let me know! :smiley:

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo |  | 672 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, whereโ€™ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

    Bucharest is a lovely, calm and joyful city. I was staying at ICANSEE villa, a family stay place and Iโ€™ve just had everything I needed. The streets are safe, people are nice, nice clubs, terraces. It has a good vibe, I love it!

  • Oslo

    I've been there in summer. I don't understand why the rate of walkability is bad, that is ridiculous. People are friendly and polite, if you want to find a job is easy, although opening a bank account to get your salary can take two months. There are plenty of coffees, restaurants and bars, often you need to book in advance (more if the weather is good), and they will rip you off. I knew this, and I went there with the plan of no-eating out, no coffee-out and no-party, but even the supermarket i

  • Berlin

    Berlin is overall a great city to be. Food is cheap and everywhere, easy to go out and have fun/meet for business. Rent has crept up but still far better value than where I came from. Internet: 36 EUR/month get me 450/40 mbps (cable -> DOCSIS 3.0) Public transport is 2.70 EUR/ticket. No woman I know has said they felt unsafe. Some really odd, xenophobic sounding comments on here. Biggest downsides IMO: service quality at restaurants - not that people are rude, but they don't seem to particular

  • Cluj

    Everybody was speaking so positive about Cluj so I tried it for 2 months there. In the end it was rather disappointing, the vibe of the city is somewhat uninspiring, even a bit depressing the longer you stay. The old town is cute with bars and restaurants, but after a few days there's nothing new to discover. Very ugly that there's to much car traffic for such a small city, there are literally cars everywhere. It might be a good choice for couples enjoying to live a traditional life, but for nom
