    Where can I Learn Spanish in Guatemala?

    Antigua has a number of renowned Spanish schools - it's one of the towns main sources of income. I spent a couple of months there staying with a family for the fully immersive experience and learnt very rapidly, but I guess you could just as easily take an apartment relatively cheaply. It's also a very pleasant place to visit. ¡Buena suerte over 8 years ago

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

    Another consideration would be that your attitude to travel may change over time. Before/during university I was much happier to rough it, stay anywhere, and try anything which led to far more unique adventures. After working for a few years it became a little more important to be able to occasionally find a decent meal or a comfortable bed at the end of the day, but the extra finances opened up many destinations which I couldn't fund before. Your responsibilities, perspectives and travel style may constantly evolve, so start travelling early in life and make the most of all the different stages. Regarding travelling on limited funds, consider volunteering. You'll spend the weeks working alongside like-minded people and have the (long) weekends free to visit your surroundings. For me Costa Rica was a great place to volunteer as it was possible to visit a wide variety of regions and even surrounding countries. I did unpaid construction work through Habitat for Humanity, but there are also fully paid TEFL teaching positions, which can be quite lucrative in Singapore, Korea or China. over 8 years ago

    Is it possible to sleep in seats on Japanese trains?

    It's possible, but they're not especially comfortable and don't recline. Make sure to book in advance to reserve a seat. Dedicated sleeper trains are considerably more expensive, so if you're flexible on time it's much cheaper to just stay overnight in a cheap/pod hotel. over 8 years ago

    Any information about reasonably priced accomodation in central London for a couple.

    Unless you're planning on staying for 3 months or more you may not find much decent short-let accommodation in Central London in that price range. Possibly your best option for a short stay is a budget hotel - a Premier Inn or Travelodge is generally clean/comfortable and can be found next to most major stations for £69/night. If you are staying longer then have a look at http://www.nestoria.co.uk/embankment/property/rent#dyn:/embankment/property/rent/maxprice-375 over 8 years ago

    Can I find a chocolate tour in Zurich?

    Chocolat Frey is about 30 minutes outside of Zurich and offers free factory tours (and tastings). Lindt have stopped their factory tours, but still have an outlet shop which sells for cheaper than other stores. over 8 years ago
