This is the year I have decided to hit Japan with my better half, looking at 3 weeks, flying from the UK.... Just after some advice from people who have been or go regular on places to stay and what to see etc and getting around?
We'd like to move around the country as much as possible over the 3 weeks. We're not doing it on a budget nor looking to use hostels (those days are over) but at the same time we're not looking to blow cash on Raddisons and Holiday inns.... We're not fussy but obviously would prefer more traditional... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
After years of lurking , I make my first entry: I will travel to San Diego, California (especially pic related), for 3 weeks. I have a place to sleep, and maybe a car. Could You recommend me some places and programs, that's not in the travel guides? something authentic, something special. (25yo man, middle europe <not slavic> ) I am not interested in drugs, hookers, and parties. Some of my interests: -Whale watching (Have I any chance to see whales, or it's just an overpriced sailing?) -SAnDiego Zoo and safari -shitton... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Needless bump,but some less specific question: How do you transfer money on journey? I dont want handel 1,500 bucks in cash. I know, its not so much,but what about the other /trv/ers, who backpacks through the whole far east region,through months?
Hello /trv/, I wanted to know if someone has any tips for me how to get to Gdansk from Riga. I have an offer to work there and I have some things i would like to bring with me besides clothing so what i would prefer is to travel by buss since flight will be expensive as hell.
I have tried to search the Latvian buss company pages for Riga-Gdansk and as far i can see there is direct buss connection. Maybe someone here can share something that i might be missing. Thanks
Hi /trv/ Im looking at doing a month long snowboarding holiday 12 months from now and am interested in Colorado. 2 years ago I did Canada, specifically Whistler and Banff. I'm looking for an experience closer to Banff. Main town with busses that shuttle you to and from mountains via all the lodges. Anyone have any experience in Colorado? Initial searching suggested Telluride as being a little quieter with nice beginner and intermediate slopes. Other suggested spots were Vail and Breckenridge. Any and all info/advice welcome. Where is busiest, has the best... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I think a lot depends on your budget. Telluride and (especially) Vail are rather expensive. If this is OK with you, I'd suggest either (in Telluride you don't need shuttle buses as trails end in the middle of town). Vail probably has the edge in nightlife but is more expensive. If cost is a consideration I'd suggest Sun Valley in Idaho -- the mountain is really nice, there's a beginner mountain nearby (Dollar Mountain), and the main town (Ketchum) has a lot to do at night.
Alright /trv/ lads. Planning going on a lads vacation to Burgas in may 2016. Could anyone here please describe how the weather, nightlife etc is there usually around that time ?! Anymore things we need to consider before booking the tickets. Any help or advice is appreciated.
Bulgarian here, not much experience with our sea side cuz' I consider it grossly overpriced and tourist-ridden. This is how I'd put things. >Partying and beaches at: Burgas, Slanchev Bryag (Sunny Beach) and Pomorie. These are meme party locations though, shit music (chalga), easy girls and what have you. You can clearly bonk off to the city to find a club with alternative music, but the beachfront is shit. >Laid back at Sveti Vlas >Sight-seeing in Nesebar and Sozopol Good... Comment too long.

It's alright, I spent a couple of weeks there but only because I scored a temp girlfriend with tinder. Eat delicious food, ride around on scooters, have sex, drink beers on rooftop bars. Pretty good times.
I'm meeting my gf abroad. She left a week earlier to see family in Thailand. I'm meeting her in Bangkok.
Her bag was lost in the airport, and she lost most of her Lipitor, and has maybe six doses remaining. She asked me to bring her some, and since we are staying for three months, it might look like a suspicious amount of boxes with pills. Will I have any trouble?
>>1072570 I have been to Thailand with lots of pharmaceuticals (including syringes) dozens of times. Nobody has ever asked questions. But I'm surprised that your girlfriend can't get statins in Thailand. Bangkok pays a little more attention to scripts than the rest of the country, but I'd be surprised if she couldn't just buy it over the counter from most pharmacies.
I did on my last trip to Nepal which was my first long solo trip.
I find it pretty therapeutic, getting thoughts and feelings out on paper and I read through it last week in anticipation of the trip I'm on now around South America. Yes it kept a nice record and reminded me of things I had forgotten, both written and not.
Have the same journal with me now and keeping wary of having it just be an event recorder. I find the best entries are the ones that give a clear view of my mind set instead of just saying what I did.
I tend to keep a journal anyway... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My Girlfriend and I are travelling to Japan for the first time. A lot of friends keep asking me why we're travelling in the summer as if its a bad idea. Mainly asking for general tips and if anyone has had experience with the summer festivals. We're mainly going to be around Tokyo and one week in Osaka.
That depends entirely on what you want to get out of the trip. Either way is valid, there is no One True Way. There is no "should."
One thing to watch out for is the idea that staying on one side of a border means you got more "in depth" into an area -- sometimes, to get the "in depth" experience it might even be helpful to cross that border.
I have 15 days, starting in Bangkok, before I start an internship in the UK.
I was thinking about checking out northern Thailand, then heading to Vietnam, and finally Burma. Thing is I saw a thread today where an anon was discussing the same itinerary (minus Burma) in a little less time, and I though that there is a lot to see.
Bangkok already is a huge city with a lot to offer. Not only that, but Chian Mai is close by. Same with Vietnam. Theres Saigon, and Hanoi to see.
>>1072535 I've done both very quick trips to many locations and slower paced visits to just a few, and although I usually prefer fewer places for longer duration, each style has certain advantages. If, for example, you won't be able to travel again for a long time, or you're unlikely to be in a region again, a higher-speed, drive-by sort of travel obviously offers tiny samples of a lot of places. But feeling rushed may make the whole thing less enjoyable.
All other things being equal, I very rarely want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1072540 well there isn't really much of a story to tell, I'm just giving a simple caution
travel was on my resume as an interest, and I was bombarded with questions about ow long I was planning to stay in the position, whether I would request time off, whether I was committed to the role. mentioning I traveled in an islamic country provoked a visibly poor response as well
I found it rude and offensive, but it's something that must be expected to some degree
