I have been planning to spend the winter in Baja camping on the beach drinking horchata in my hippie van. How can I even show my face down there now? Will I be killed or burned out of my van? Is everything really just going to stay the same? I was literally packing yesterday ;_;
Every country accept solo foreign women in SE Asia, maybe Brunei would bother you, and barely.
For a retreat, there are islands cut off from everything in Cambodia (like 2h/day of electricity, no Internet, no mobile network). Koh Rong used to be like that but apparently, they are not as remote as before (they have internet and are connected to the electric grid now). I guess... Comment too long.

So uh, I don't know what board to put this one but I think this is the best place for it, you guys seem to get around a lot. Im American, and if, hypothetically, I had to get away from something or someone quickly and I chose Mexico, how and where would I go without raising much attention? And, I don't know how else to put it, what's the most English speaking white person friendly part of Mexico? Sorry for not being more worldly, I know you guys are probably much more knowledgable than me. I basically know nothin about the country..
Go to the concierge's desk, ask for activities, they hand you activities catalog, you pick your activities/sights/tours, you pay for said things, you schedule said things and then you go do those said things.
Hello /trv/ I am thinking of visiting Czech Republic on January. Before I book anything I have few major questions: 1. Is it worth visit the country at this cold? 2. How long should I stay and where if my options are: 7 days, 14 days and 17 days. 3. Is there any Czech bro who are willing to show me around once I visit? If so, we can exchange emails. 4. I might visit Poland as well, so my questions apply to Poland as well.
>>1179565 Pic actually kinda related, people love "hirołsy" here. Last few winters were pretty mild with barely any snow, but early nightfall and late sunrise are guaranteed. It can get pretty depressing. Length of stay largely depends on how much you want to move around. Main cities won't take more than a couple days, but touring the country will.eat up time.
>>1179539 Only place I've been in that image is D.R, never stayed anywhere else but Resorts though. The Hard Rock Resort in Punta Cana for example was the best experience I've ever had in travelling, except the price.
Hey /trv/, challenge mode: 5 days in San Francisco, no car, fairly limited funds, no friends/family there that I know of. Going in early January, flight and hotel are already paid for. What are the must-sees of the city, best places to eat, etc.? I'm not totally opposed to tourist trap type stuff (I'll go look at seals and that fucking bridge), but this is my first time in CA and I wanna make it count. Please assist.
>>1179277 I'm living in the UK for the next few years for work, so I'm planning on living within my means and doing it when I'm done. Fairly new traveler thoigh, so I plan on going with a GPS for most parts, taking my time, saving cash by camping when I can, stuff like that.
I don't plan on doing the official route because I can't afford to donate that much to charity, but I still regularly donate over time to the Combined Federal Campaign so that's how I justify it.

im thinking about doing it with some friends next some, but also not the official one, because we would sell our car there, what the mongol rally guys object to for some reasons
we would probably go through the balkan, turkey and then spend most of our time in iran and the stans, because they are the most appealing to us and we dont have unlimited time, as we are university students right now
>>1179310 Yeah I heard about how Mongol Rally discourages car sale and scrap, is there any 'real-traveler-approved' way of dealing with cars? Mongolia is a beautiful country, I don't want my beater car to be another pile of rust seeping into Ulan Bator's water.
So far I figure I could contact Steppe Riders tours and ask what I should do, maybe even donate it to them.
Going to Brazil from late November until Christmas, looking for suggestions.
I'm coming in on a boat from Peru, so I'll be in Manaus for a few days at least (I hear the girls have a massive gringo fetish there too). After that, I definitely want to hang out in São Paulo and Rio for a while.
*Is Iguazú falls worth it?
*Any other cities that are particularly cool to experience, other than São Paulo and Rio? I don't particularly give a shit about nice beaches, I just really want to experience the culture.

Manaus is a hellhole, as in, its hot as shit, since its right on the middle of the rainforest.
Don't know about Iguazu Falls, check a few videos and if its seem like something you want to experience, sure, go there.
São Paulo and Rio are cultural hotspots , if you want for some history go to ouro preto, but only if you really want to and have the time for it, other than that, you won't miss much going to these two places if you are not looking for beaches.

Use memrise and Duolingo
>>1178939 I've never been to Panama City myself so feel free to completely disregard my post, but I've heard it's pretty awful. Why go there for scuba anyway? There's way better places to do so in Latin Aerica.
>>1178939 Panama City is dull as fuck. Spent 2 days 3 nights there. Run out of stuff on the second day. Canals are mildly interesting (much smaller than I imagined). Stay in the old town, Go eat in the Seafood market (Mercado de Mariscos). Shit loads of civeche on the cheap. Get drunk by the sea side because there is nothing to do.
The north has Jiufen, the oceanside town that Spirted Away was based on. For sights, Taipei has 101, Elephant Mountain, Taiwan Democracy Memorial Park, and Tamshui. For art, it has Huashan 1914 Creative Park, Songshan Creative Park & MajiMaji. If you like Myanmarian food, go to Huaxin rd aka "Little Burma". Night Marketwise, Raohe & Linjiang have tons of good food.
The east coast is a nature lovers paradise, you have Yilan / Hualien / Taidong. Yilan I've yet to go to, but have heard the scenery's good, and it has the Kavalan Whiskey... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1179436 The Taiwanese are also quite fond of taking pics of everything as well, pretty much any food you get at a cafe / resttaurant will be pretty, and some will even help you take pictures.
From Taipei, your best bets for beautiful places are Tamshui, Jiufen and Taroko. The latter two will take a few hrs by train/bus, Tamshui is on the MRT line, and will take bout a 1/2 hr depending on where you're starting from.
Dude don't... They can freeze money on your bank account up til 10 working days. I requested to book a place for 1600 when i was out traveling and it got cancelled last minute. The money was then freezed on my bank account for legit two weeks so i had to live like a peasant
Gutter oil is a pretty rare thing, you wont run into it.
1. Its not often 'gutter oil', its normally just recycled oil from various factories where oil is a byproduct, the pics you see of people in gutters are trying to tap the waste produced by these factories, normal waste doesn't contain very much oil at all, it needs to be in high enough quantities for it to be worth collecting.
2. Its very rarely used for cooking, its mainly used in other applications such as lubricants for mechanics... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to buy a van (for small accomadations in the back) to begin living in and travelling and to get away from an abusive family, how do I go about doing this with only $3,000 to spare? I need help guys real bad
>>1177505 OP, you can't buy any decent used car whatsoever for under $8k, of any type. Trucks and vans are more in demand because of the ability to haul shit, so blue collar values them and keeps their resell value higher.

I think it could be a combination of that and me being sick.
I don't know. I've never had a "travel overdose" before, and I've been in worse situations than the one I'm in now. All the plans and enthusiasm I had last week have vanished down the drain. Instead of considering where I might go once I'm better, I'm researching campsites in my home state and imagining motorcycling Alaska, stopping at roadside bars, and eating hamburgers.

It happens. We all go through it in one form or another. Doesn't even have to be travel related. I call it a rut. You're in a rut right now. It will go in due time. Wish I had better advice, but I don't.
I get you, though. I haven't travelled with other people yet, but I can perfectly understand the ramifications of it. Seriously though, if you have local sim cards or any way of communicating, just find each other later or arrange a meeting at X spot at Y time.
>>1180355 Really? That's interesting, I didn't know that about Buenos Aires. I was looking into Peru but it's really cliche, Patagonia is really expensive, Easter Island/Santiago trip might be fun, not really interested in the gelapagos islands since tourism is destroying the environment there. I really want to go to Brazil but am nervous because of stories I've heard.
The rail system is definitely worth trying out in case you haven't considered it. It isn't super easy to figure things out, but getting around shouldn't be a serious issue if you're not an idiot. Food in Sibiu and Brasov was amazing. Sighisoara is small, but very charming. I stayed for a night when I was there and definitely enjoyed my stay. Are you planning on staying in hostels?
>>1179990 burning man isn't a rave you fucking idiot. im really tired of people thinking that it is another corporate funded cattle herded big stage watch kanye and skrillex and blast loud noises kind of shit show.
burning man is what festivals should be (though it has changed quite a bit in recent years)
>>1180024 >burning man isn't a rave you fucking idiot. Clam down. It is a festival that got away from the origin in a fast way. It's over. Now it's just destructive to the environment and stupid.
OP, there are festivals all over the world that are highly attended of all types, from funky Bonaroo to hipster and hippes at Sasquatch and Ultra Miami (where you should go early and do events at Winter Music Conference first) to the Electric Love Festival to the must-see Jazz and...

Can anyone who has recently flown with JAL tell me if this is normal?
Check the field that reads "Name on your passport".
Let's pretend that my name is John Smith. Instead of "SMITH JOHN", it reads "SMITH JOHNMR". I assume that they meant to say that I'm Mr. John Smith, but they put the "MR" right next to my first name, without any spaces.
Does anyone know if it's normal for your title to be stuck to the end of your first name like that? Will it cause trouble when I try to board my flight?
>>1179358 Every single airline does that on every ticket since ever... LASTNAME/FIRSTNAMEMR or LASTNAME/FIRSTNAMEMS I could probably pull out a Air New Zealand ticket from 1995 and it has the same wording.
>>1179305 >>1179526 It's not that cold there, or do you come from Africa or something? . >The average winter temperature in Oslo is only about minus 4 degrees Celsius (around 23 °Fahrenheit), which is a bit warmer than the winter temperatures of most American and European cities. Visitors however should be prepared for frost from late October until late March/early April. Only occasionally there is deep frost below minus 15 °C (4 °F).
Why San Andres of all places? It's the beach place for rich Colombians. Try the other island that you can get to from there with a short flight - can't remember the name - it's much better. Less family tourism more adventure.
I want to travel from Portland to Chicago in mid-November without getting on an airpline. Needless to say, the US isn't easy to get around in without a car or license, so I'll probably be dependent on buses. The blue and green routes in my image are my two options. I'd be stopping along the way, obviously, but without my own car I'm not sure I'll be able to enjoy the parks and scenery of the American West much. I'd appreciate it if anyone had any advice to spare on getting the most out of these states while transportation is fairly limited.

Waiting to start my new job here in California, bored, long story short got the idea to save up money and travel to and live in Sweden for around 6mon-1yr in the future. Have fun, engage in Swedish nightlife, and most importantly mingle with gorgeous Swedish women. Anyway.
I have access to a euro passport, (Italy), so I figure that might make things easier. What I want to know, is if anyone else has done something similar and could share their experiences, and enlighten me as to how feasible such a thing is.
