Topic: Old english case systems
June 25, 2019 / By Tucker Question:
I love world culture and I'm thinking to travel in a few years to Japan,Italy and China.
I love anime and everything, I just love Japan and same with chine and Italy because they're all beautiful places and i like different cultures. I can speak fluent Italian and Partial Japanese, but I'm not that good. I want to know:
~Do they speak English there?
~Will i need to get more fluent in Japanese and Italian?
~Are basic things expensive?
~How's the money currency?
~What should I bring?

Of these places I have been to Japan and China
Everyone in Japan learns English, but in my experience, few speak it well enough to actually converse, though in touristy areas most shopkeepers at least speak enough to sell you stuff. I have never been to Japan that I did not speak Japanese, however I do believe it would be challenging to navigate if you did not speak the language. The more of the language you speak, the more you will be able to enjoy your trip in my opinion. Japan is generally more expensive than the United States and Canada are, especially food. When I go, I typically budget $50-60 a day for food if I'm eating out. It is a little overkill, as some places (noodle shops, etc) will be cheaper, however no one ever hurt for over budgeting. Public transit there is also more expensive than most places I have been in the United States. You pay more depending on how far you are going (with trains and subways) and if you accidently overpay you don't get that money back (so be careful). The best advice I can offer anyone travelling in Japan is to bring 2 suitcases, one big and one small. There are several train stations that do not have escalators or elevators but do have a lot of stairs. Whenever I go to Japan, and I am travelling to different locations in Japan, I will pack my small bag with 1-2 days of clothes and ship my big bag to where ever I am going next. There is a service in Japan called Takkyuubin (the symbol is a little black cat, not to be confused with the normal post office). They are in Narita Airport and you can call them to come to your hotel and get your bag. They will ship any package, any weight, anywhere in Japan for $20-$30. (at least this was the case the last time I was in Japan, which was 2009). This way you are not hauling all your luggage all over the country, because the transit system really is not designed for that. On your way home you'll want to ship the bag to the airport 2 days in advance, (they won't do it if your flight is the next day, though the packages almost always arrive the next day).
I have not traveled in China as much as I have Japan, and I was in China in 2004, and was in a more remote area. (Guangxi, a province in southern China). In my experience China is MUCH cheaper than the US, and educated people (and I have heard shopkeepers in touristy areas) do speak English. However, where I was there were more people who did not speak English than did (In the area I was in some of the older people did not even speak Mandarin!). One issue I can think of though is people will see you're not Chinese and jack up the prices to rip you off. If there is no posted price, do not be afraid to haggle.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Hope it helps

You need - Health certificate , another letter within 10 days of flight from Vet saying cat is healthy to fly - Must be within 10 days of flight. The cat will be needing a micro chip for most airlines . It an airline rule not Mexico.
It getting hot and some airlines will not fly pets in hot weather - Check !
The cat hes to be current on all shots. Immigration Will check !
Go to Delta and Continentals web sites as they have the best info for pet travel. If you have questions and need a person call Continental , Deltas people are hard to get a hold of . Airline rules dont vary that much beteewn carriers, they are pretty standard beteen all.
Even if the cat is going on the plane in a cage below your seat , you will still have to clear customs and immigration and its a pain...................You probably will have about $200 in some crappy fees they charge. Check and make sure the special pet/animal customs officers will be on duty at the time you land. Chance are past 5 pm they will be off work and closed and your screwed.
This is not an ease task. Homework...............Do your homework.
Link over to me and give me your e mail if you need and more help.

I would say, be sure to take all the cats latest Vet. records along, most likely they won't even check or ask if you travel by car, and if asked say he will be kept caged.
Once I see these "do you travel" or "what country would you seek advice from" variety questions, I comprehend how much my existence is unique from the typical man or woman. At final rely, there were about 320 countries in the world... And i have been in OVER 1/2 OF THEM... Precisely what number of countries i have been in.. I could not bet... I quit counting after a hundred due to the fact that it appeared as an alternative pointless. I do not journey as so much now as I did before I retired. I still have my condominium in Valencia, Spain... My boat in Antigua and a pair of houses in the U.S. And, for the period of the course of the yr, I manage to live in all of them for a minimum of a few months. It's been my experience that most effective about 5 percentage of AmeriKans have ever been outside their own country... Europeans and Brits rating much greater.. But not a entire lot.
Some Chinese people can speak English,but a lot of them afraid to speak English because they think they speak it fluently and do not have a correct pronounciation.
