    Should one wait to travel until you have some sort of degree?

    I travelled for 4 years.. I earnt good money (not like if I went over with my current work experience), but earned enough to live, travel and have fun. I worked hard, and travelled when I could. most people I know worked hard and alot, then travelled, and back to work again. ideally if u have a degree you will earn more in London or elsewhere and have more money to travel on. either finish uni and travel... perhaps take some smaller trips until then... or leave now.. and come back when u are ready and finish uni. I did half a degree and travelled for 4 years, and came back and changed degrees and now am in my final year, and work. but make sure i take holidays... and plan my next trips... about 8 years ago

    My wife and I will be touring Central Europe this April 2011 for 30 days. Please advise on do's & don'ts

    as the other mentioned.. minimal jewellery ( i wear 1 ring and wear the stone facing the wrong way). mum was mugged in naples recently - the guy ripped her necklace off her neck. i told her not to bring any thing. take minimal clothing - make sure it all matches, always take swimwear and a jumper. make sure clothes are mix and match.. comfortable shoes are a must look like u have no money..i dont mean travel like u are poor... but travel carefully so you dont attract any attention. I have never travelled with a pacsafe.. too much weight.. but all my valuables are on my person at all times, and if they are not they are insured. keep your wits about yourself, and always beware. have a bag that slings over your shoulder, so you can hold the bag infront of you, or a day pack that is on your front. holding a strap doesnt do much. if people want to steal what you have they will regardless what you do, as the police said in naples they will cut your finger off if they want your ring. Dos do enjoy, take in everything, take time to sit and watch the world go by, try the wonderful food in each location walk the cities at day and night see something unique in each place. find local produce markets buy shoes in spain / italy try pastries in france red light district in amsterdam / sex museum venice seafood markets, and all the windy roads, gondola ride ENjoy! about 8 years ago
