>>1073668 Well yeah you'll see a lot of blacks/arabs and the city has a reputation for crimes but it's like pretty much everywhere just don't go in the bad parts and be smart. Do you speak French ? As for the things to see in Marseille, the port, the old town, the cathedral and the basilica, eating the famous "bouillabaisse" (sort of fish soup), and other stuff but I've been there once only Then you have the whole Provence region around which you should 100% check out. There's the Calanques... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello everyone. I just want to preface this with how fucking glad I am that I remembered that this board exists.
Anyway, I'm a 19 year old college dropout (still living on residence, left school because it just wasn't what I thought it was going to be) and my lease expires in late August. I'll try not to bore you with the details here, but basically I've had a really fucked up life and instead of helping, college just sent me into a brief but brutal relapse. I've quit just about everything at this point, I don't even smoke cigarettes anymore,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1073677 Contrary to popular belief, I'm not planning on living with wolves. I mean if they're friendly enough and they offer me the scraps of a deer carcass it would be rude to turn it down, but I'm not going to be actively looking for them.
>>1073590 Jordan is easing visa restrictions, bolstering security for tourist spots and obviously prices are shooting down. Realistically if you're government is letting you fly to a country the you should be alright. Even when a country is in difficulty, road blocks will stop you from entering the hot areas..
I can't imagine you would NOT get your passport back --the two are not the same thing. Two ways to find out for sure -- at a post-office or something near you is a passport office. Call or stop by and ask them. Or contact the e-mail or phone contact info available online.
>>1073506 Maybe throw in Prague and Krakow? I am 26 and my wife and myself just visited Prague and Krakow for a week, it was the perfect amount of time for those two cities, we wanted to get to budapest however time constraints would not allow. I am pretty sure I saw a train in the station that went from Krakow>Prague>Budapest. Even if it didnt I am sure it would be simple to organize.
>I should mention neither of us are into the Clubbing/bar scene either, mostly just old shit
to do list if you end up going: go to a spa (széchenyi is the biggest, veli bej is the coziest) get rose-shaped ice cream at basilica lunch at a market hall (any market hall except the main market hall, which would be a full-on tourist trap if it wasn't for the nice architecture. hold utcai market hall maybe?) it's just a social place in general, so even during the day you'll find plenty of nice cafés, tea houses, you name it, places where you don't have to consume alcohol. oh and in july they...

So my friends and I were thinking of having a road trip through Europe (we live in the Uk) and thought about driving from England to Istanbul and back. However, one of our party is Sikh and we were wondering if he'd face any significant discrimination in the Balkans (greater than what he gets in the UK anyway).
Would it be significant or do people not give that much of a shit?
>>1073482 Anyone that wears headwear is going to be confusing as WTF are they. This is a known problem with Sikh's everywhere they go. I would think they are most understood and accepted in the UK, for the locals education and understanding far outweighs the rest of europe.
Leave him at home, or get him to clean up his appearance in order to enjoy the once in a lifetime trip. Understandably, he may have religious reasons not to do that, and so you'll deal with the trouble if it arises. What else could you do?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there a single fucking city/country where Taxi drivers don't try to rip you off? I live in the South East US so I have never dealt with them in the states but every city in Europe or Asia I have been to they try to overcharge you in anyway possible.
>>1073470 Protip: Don't ever just flag a taxi and get in. You look stupid that way, and will be treated like all the other stupid idiots that driver once drove. Use other transport to/from trains and airports, there should be kiosks where you pay first, and then a queue of taxi drivers receive a voucher from you and can't size you up or choose you as the passenger. Have your hotel send a car for you, a limo is never that much more money when affiliated with your hotel, and the hotel trusts them/vetted them and... Comment too long.

>>1073470 >I live in the South East US so I have never dealt with them in the states It's a regulated industry in the US. Union-negotiated fares are marked on stickers on windows, drivers are reported by 800 number, and you can reverse a credit card charge. On top of that, there will be competitively stated rates for all services to/from airports, and to/from ports, such as in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, New York, and transits such as that.

Starting the Camino de Santiago in early March. The French Way. Does anyone have any tips or anecdotes? Also how much did it cost? I've packed as well as I have for any other trip but feel like I'm missing something.
There's a thread here: >>1066260 with answers to most of your questions. Reading through it would probably help.
But to start off with, make sure you didn't pack too much. You don't need much to walk to Camino. At all. If your backpack is over 40-45 liters, it's probably too big, and if you're carrying more than 10kg, you could cut some stuff out.
It doesn't cost very much. Basically the Camino costs as much as you want it to. Most of the time, you can find... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to be flying to Australia next month, and I need a bag that will be able to fit my huge ass PC case (21x9x19) and I've been struggling to find something on anything on the internet that looks like it'd fit it. If anyone else has been in this situation I'd appreciate a recommendation, I'd really hate to invest in one and then find out it won't fit.
figured it would be cool to share some of the neato things around us that a lot of tourists miss
out in the middle of the dessert sort of near louth there is this monument/pillar called the "fire stone". a man built it so that on it cast a reflection on his wifes grave some distance away on her birthday
nobody really knows how he worked out the angles, or how he got all the stone that way out, they think maybe paddle steamer and horse drawn cart
it's very Australian, but people miss it because it's in the middle of nowhere, (at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm interested in travelling through Latin America (Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile) volunteering for people and living with them along the way but in doing research I keep reading different accounts of the safety in this region. Some say they've hitchhiked from Colombia to Chile and encountered no problems while the Canadian and American government's websites state that one should not travel close to the border of Colombia and Ecuador and Ecuador and Peru for instance.
How safe is South America and will I encounter many problems if I stick to taking buses... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
