    How hard is it to get a Visa when travelling to Brazil?

    I am an Australian who travelled to Brasil after 1 year in Italy. I found it to be pretty easy. In Italy the Brasilians there wanted all sorts of complicated stuff, like proof of studying in Italy etc. etc. So instead I went to the embassy in Lisbon, Portugal and the Brasilians there were much more relaxed and I got a visa within 2 weeks without any form of proof of why I was in Portugal about 9 years ago

    Can Australians do a working holiday at the snow?

    http://www.italy.embassy.gov.au/rome/new.html Basically you have to apply to your local consulate in Melbourne for a working holiday visa. Then when you enter Italy you have 8 days to go to the Questura (one of the police forces in Italy) and apply for your Permesso di Soggiorno (basically "permission to stay") - this will take a while, I never got mine and I was there for 12 months! ... you only need to keep the receipt from the Questura and you will be fine Then you can find a job and the employer has to apply for a work permit for you. I was in Bolzano which is in one of the valleys in the mountains. Absolutely beautiful place. I know a few people if you need somewhere to stay ;) If you do go there. Pop into Temple Bar and say hello to Steve and Tanya and grab a Guiness while you are there. :) over 10 years ago

    What is a good, central location to stay at in Paris, in terms of ease of access to tourist destinations, decency, cheap eateries, etc?

    Depends when you intend to go there. In the summer it gets packed out and the only cheap places you will find are not walking distance. However this is not much of a problem because public transport is great in Paris and doesn't cost a lot. My advice is just hop on HostelWorld whenever you know when you want to be there and look for some cheap options. The ratings on hostelworld will usually give you some good idea about how central and what sort of district the place is in. Last time I was in Paris I stayed in Oops hostel. It is quite nice with 4 bed dorms, cheap (or maybe free now according to hostelworld) internet access and free croissants for breakfast. It is pretty central, Place d’Italie, walking distance from town, but also very close to a metro station over 10 years ago

    Is it easy enough to travel by hire car through Switzerland and Austria in June-July?

    I would recommend going through Bozen-Bolzano in the North of Italy into Austria and then go West toward Switzerland (via Bodensee - Lake Constance). This way is pretty spectacular and you can stop off in a lot of locations on the way. over 10 years ago
