>>1190736 Definitely Austria. I'm not sure how into /out/ you are but I've heard Austria's Kalkalpen park is great for hiking/camping/climbing. In fact, the entire country is beautiful. Innsbruck and Saltzburg are really nice, as well as the lakes near Saltzburg. (saltzburg in particular has decent nightlife and a younger population). Depending on how much you'd want to spend, you could go skiing also. I've never been to Vienna but, again, I hear nice things.

>>1190742 I'll check it out! Is Austria better in summer though?
For Ireland, google the Wild Atlantic Way (it's the tourism marketing drive for the entire west coast, which is where the nature/mountains/best landscapes are). You need a car to enjoy Ireland properly, be warned.
>>1190743 >Is Austria better in summer though? Probably, but it depends on your tastes desu. Skiing is a huge draw. Not to mention I don't really know of a place in Europe that wouldn't be cold in January for outdoorsy stuff. However, I can still vouch for Saltzburg being good.
hey all. long time lurker and occasional shitposter.
so in a section of my nine months traveling this year my gf and i walked the 500 odd km of the way of st francis from florence to rome via the appennine mountains. i/we enjoyed seeing rural tuscany, abruzzo and Lazio and having had so much entertainment on this forum this is my AMA in return.
we're 29 yo australians with passable italian. we walked over 28 days in september/october. the walk has more altitude gain and loss than the semi comparible camino de santiago (done in 2010). there is a mixture of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
hey /trv/ im about to spend the next two years in japan and i have no idea what to expect. i am VERY excited about the prospect of living in a foreign country seeing as ive only lived in the us for the 24 years that ive been alive.
as i said before i dont really know what im walking into so im doing a little bit of asking around. so what kind of things should i expect?
if you could could provide me with what youve learned from your experiences and also help me in some fact checking in the research that ive done so far i would be immensely grateful.

>>1190047 Post this in the Japan general and delete this. You will always be seen as a foreigner. Sushi is slightly better than the rest of the world. Liking anime is childish but a lot of people do, it's like playing video games.
I'm traveling to Switzerland for work. For the first week I'm there, I'll be in Grancia near Lugano I think. After, I'll be in Zurich for 4 days, Geneva for 3 days then I fly out of Milan. Any suggestions as to what to do? I like museums and history stuff, but nature is cool too.
I finally have a sizable amount (11000 usd) saved and can travel starting in January.
There are a lot of places I want to go but at the moment I'm in need of a fresh perspective, new start, whatever. I know I'm not the only one browsing /trv/ with that vague concept in mind so lets throw some ideas and experiences around.
Been recently to the USA. Most of them are overweight and unarmed. Most were white and very polite. A chubby TSA qt even started chatting me up while there was some hold up at security.
Unfortunately she didn't want to take me in for a random search.
The border/passport control dudes are fucking wack though. Depending on your luck mostly, be prepared to get harassed for 20min of them asking you the dumbest and strangest questions to make sure you're not some jihad bomber and can keep your cool.
TSA are people with a lot of authority, who wouldn't have it in other work. But their job requires it, being a jerk is enough to catch many problematic people. One of the worst things to say to them is you aren't currently employed.
If you're Norwegian you probably have enough money and a good enough life in your country that you aren't considered much of a risk.
Usually customs agents are friendly to people from their country, and mean to others.
I'm gonna be flying for the first time by myself, and it's gonna be with this airline. Does anyone have any experience and tips for flying with them? I'm gonna have a 15 hour layover overnight, how do you pass the time? Thanks in advance.
I'm staying in Frankfurt for 9 hours tomorrow while waiting for my plane. What is a good place to go in a small amount of time? Preferrably not too far away from the airport and something that involves food.
>>1188988 The city center is about 20min by train from the airport.
Got 3 suggestions: 1. Buffalo Steak House at the Kaiserhofstrasse 2. Kabuki at the Kaiserstrasse, Asian grill (next to the mainstation) 3. Kleinmarkthalle, Hasengasse, for typical local food and snacks
>>1188777 I stayed overnight at a Berber camp in the Sahara a few years ago. These days they're less nomadic than maintaining the camp as a kind of tourist attraction. Still cooler than most tourist attractions I've seen. And yes, I did the camel ride there and back.
Okay you guys must be experts so answer me this question:
I've only flown once before so i don't really know what I'm doing. Anyway, I live in Ontario, Canada and I'm planning on going to New Zealand for 2 weeks in April. I'm taking my vacation time from work to do this.
My issue is I don't really know much about jet lag. If I get back to Canada on a Saturday night, is Sunday enough recovery time for me to go back to work on Monday? Or is that insane. .
>>1188212 Does anyone know where to get Kamado parts? It's a large egg shaped smoker grill thing. Mine are green and I'm looking for another top or any other accessories that will fit really. Google photo related, it's too dark to take pictures of mine which are older but probably the same.
>watching a couple getting increasingly frustrated trying to get the perfect picture but other tourists are getting in the way
Put the damn cameras away and enjoy the view! You're stressing yourself out for no reason. I always have to laugh at tourists complaining about how crowded an attraction is. You are part of the problem. Like a driver stuck in a traffic jam complaining about the traffic. You ARE the traffic.
>>1188116 Why? Have you never witnessed the scene described? Unless you're butthurt because you're the hipster girl I saw at the top of the hiking trail today screaming at her beta boyfriend to take the photo again and again until he got one that didn't make her look fat.
I'm relunctant about USA because it's way too far from my home & culture. Life so goddamn expensive in SF that it's impossible to establish a family there. Hence why I'm more tempted by EU countries, although I'd make less money (the US job is 6 figures).
>>1184694 I was actually going to reccomend SF, as best fitting your criteria, as long as you were compensated for the highcost of living, which you would at 6 figures. BS about being impossible to start a family, prior to kids you will be fine on that salary, and when you have them there are plenty of reasonable areas within the bay in commuting distance of SF. Also, educated employed single women, it's not likely you will be the sole breadwinner. Asians are easy to come by there, too, if that's your thing. In addition,... Comment too long.

>>1184701 You're right, but the more I think about it, the more I can't imagine myself marrying/having kids with an American girl. Don't get me wrong, I love this country, but the idea of raising a kid so far from my culture is a bit scary. It would mean I'm "stuck" on the other side of the word far from my family/friends.. I'm not even mentionning the possibility of a divorce and how much that would suck (I know some guys who did that and they're now stuck in Australia where their... Comment too long.

>>1189489 It's sad how much has changed in just a few years. I went in November 2014 and it was fine. Obviously some of those issues existed at that time, but it all seems to have escalated considerably
>>1189449 >move back and forth between the same tourist sights over and over again >all while herding a bunch of walking stereotypes on a package tour who try their hardest to get lost and piss you off in some manner Thanks, I'll pass.
>>1189297 Well Afghanistan is mostly peaceful and has some beautiful landscapes, I've considered going there as a tourist. Hell, as part of the military you might get some of the great mountain views near the Pakistani border (Khyber Pass, etc...) where you pretty much can't go unless you are military. Iraq is still fairly dangerous and looks more like a boring desert.
>>1189297 How do you even get to pick? What service are you in. I would personally say Afghan becausr as sketchy as the people are, its beautiful. If you are not combat arms though basically your deployment will consist of sitting on a base and never seeing the country at all.
How does one find a list of concerts/show etc happening in a city during a set period. I am travelling through europe in May/June 2017 and would love to go to a concert/comedy shows etc but finding it really difficult to find.
>>1189024 That's great you need to be more specific. Such as what star hotel you want, when you're planning to be in Vegas (almost all bargain deals depend on when you're going), how long you're staying (this will determine how much money you should bring), what your budget is, etc.
