Sup guys. So, I've been to D.C. before, and I've visited various museums and certain locations, but I was looking for something new, or out of the normal. My question for you guys is have you been to any places that particularly stuck out to you? Any places that you would recommend (especially during an acid trip, to make the experience more enjoyable)?
I'm traveling internationally and I was wondering if I could bring powdered caffeine on a plane with me? I'm asking because it looks sketchy 'cause it's just white powder in a plain little baggie. Should I call ahead and ask? Maybe go a little earlier since I might get delayed? Flying out of LAX btw.
Is there anyone here who uses portable transportation like folding bikes, roller blades, scooters, and skateboards to get around foreign cities?
I've always thought it would be a good idea to pack something like a folding bike or roller blades into your airplane luggage and use it to see a city. It looks very convenient and cheap to have transportation like this instead of having to walk, take the bus, or rent a car.
>>1072459 Kathmandu as a city with how shitty its infrastructure and how many unfinished buildings that are around the place, you'd never know there was earthquake there if someone didn't tell you.
That said, in Kathmandu Durbur square there is fairly significant Earthquake Damage on the Heritage Buildings some dating back a fucking long time.
I never got around to Bhatkapor but I hear it's still fairly nice to see. Another good place is Pokhora, probably nicer than Khatmandu by a fair margin.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1072483 I was planning to fly into kathmandu and see sites there, at patan and bhaktapur, and still considering pokhara, nagarkot and annapurna.
I'm more into history, culture and architecture than natural scenery, but for the himalayas i'd made an exception to get a good view of them, such as nagarkot i've heard is good. But i'm not going to climb it or even go to base camp which i heard takes like 16 days of hiking. Not into treking, even if you take out the time and cost of it.
There is literally nothing in Mongolia but rocks, water and sand. And horse milk. That's really it, I don't know how you guys are going to be bro-ing it up, but don't expect much. Mandatory: Return to your previous mongolia.
Let me ask you something. My friend is obsessed with going to japan and find work there (any work) and live there. He's from central america and he is learning japanese. Does he have a chance?, or it's just another weeboo fag with an impossible dream?
Hi /trv/. Polish 20 y.o here. I would like to start some journey around May, but i don't know where to go, i just want to go far away from here, for ex.on 2-3 months. Can you give me some advice, where to go if i don't have a lot of money, what to see, where meet some interesting people, or something? Mainly, i think about Central-Eastern Europe, but if you know some cheap ways to get to for ex Asians countries, feel free to share the idea.I have a valid passport but i don't have any visas.
>What are your interests? vidya, history, music (create and listen), politics, philosophy, military, writing, anime (i want to start learing how to draw) >Are you looking for cities or nature? I want to get to know new cultures, and travell across the countries, doesn't matter is that city or nature area if it's interesting place. Generally all my foreign travels was to western Ukraine because they have cheaper petrol, so I suspect that a lot of places may seem interesting to me. >Do... Comment too long.

I can give you a few suggestions. I personally visited Slovakia and CZ and loved both countries. I think they're slightly cheaper than Poland (except Prague which was geared towards tourists). There's so much to see there, a lot of historical sites. Kutna Hora is my recommendation, you must go there if you're in CZ.
My cousins recently went to Serbia, Macedonia and Albania. They said that Macedonia has a lot to see (nature... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What languages have you found most useful when traveling the world? Like which ones have come in handy in the most places? One day I plan to go, particulary to places like Egypt or Kenya, maybe some of Europe or whatever, but I figure it's best if I start learning a language earlier rather than in the few months before I leave. I already know English because I'm from NZ. Thinking about maybe picking up French as I took it as a class like 7 years ago.
Yeah there's no clean answer to this question, OP. I would argue French for two reasons: it's the co-official language of 29 countries, and it's widely understood in many more (the only meaningful conversation I had with any locals in Vietnam was in French, not English). Second reason is that it gives you a toehold onto Romance languages in general, and Spanish of course is the other most widely spoken language. Speaking French you won't necessarily be able to have a convo with a Spanish speaker, but you'll be able to understand road signs, menus,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi, I am a Canadian and I will be travelling to India, there are some electronics that I want to take aboard, which includes my PS3, laptop, PSP and a phone. My main concern is my PS3, I plan on taking it on a carry-on bag, I've heard people saying that the PS3 is treated same as a laptop, but the other thing is I have this massive arcade controller as well, would I put the controllers and PS3 together for the X-ray screening during the security check or I can put it in my other luggage bag which goes straight to the plane? Also HDMI wires and other wires should I keep... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm trying to help my friend from Morocco come to America to either study or work. He basically grew up in a slum and has no way to obtain money; he'd have to get a job in the States to pay for school here. I can lend him enough for a plane ticket. What's the easiest way to get into America from a non-Western country? Do any of you have experience with this? He's got a Moroccan degree in electrical engineering.
>>1072281 He'll need to get a visa to either work or study in the U.S., he'll have to fill out a form and pay a fee, it's not too expensive but it's not a guarantee that his application will be accepted.
Here's a link with more info and on obtaining a student visa
>>1072328 Thanks for the link. I guess I knew the basics, but I also know it gets complicated real fast. For instance I assume as part of the visa application he'll have to prove he has enough money to live/pay tuition, when that's impossible unless he can enter America and start working. Also he's a devout Muslim and I won't lie, he looks like Osama bin Laden. Gotta wonder if that's gonna be an obstacle.
>>1072332 lol, yeah with the current political climate it will probably be harder to get a visa if you're from an Arab country. But the fact that he already has a degree will help.
Alternatively, he could attempt to get a greencard instead of a visa, it will give him permanent residence in the U.S., but is a bit more difficult to acquire. It would be best to do this by finding an employer willing to hire him here, then having them petition for a greencard for him. Again, his engineering degree will come in very... Comment too long.

>>1072288 It's not fake. Pictured is a 1966 50cent piece, which was the first year decimal currency was issued. The 1966 50cent piece is 80% silver, and has an actual silver weight of 1/3 of a troy ounce. At current spot price that makes this particular coin worth 6-7AUD.

Hey everyone, In a few months I am traveling to Saigon for a teaching job, I am very excited about it but as the date for me to leave comes closer and closer I am feeling a growing sense of anxiety. The anxiety isn't really coming from the job part, but mostly the part about traveling on a plane for 20 hours to a country that I am not familiar with and where I don't know anyone. I should point out that this is not the first time I am traveling outside the U.S, my parents use to take me to Europe when I was a kid and teenager, but this is the first time I am going somewhere...

>>1072238 Well it's a big change. Weird would it be if you were completely relaxed. I don't know how to overcome this. I recently changed continents myself and I was pretty nervous too. But in the end, change is good anon. Accept it. Enjoy it. You're going to have fun.
Transfer is easy, especially if you have time. Airports are structured well plus there are signs everywhere.
When you land go find the connecting gate, then check time and explore the airport and eat. You already know where it is. If you get lost just ask. But it's gonna be easy.
Always important is research how to get from saigon airport to your first bed. Check wiki gravel and lonely planet to and from airport. You'll then know what to do, just make a plan. Like landing then taxi stand at arrival hall. Or train or whatever. Keep the address... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1072238 I remember the first time I traveled alone on a plane to a foreign country, I was 8. It was the most terrifying thing ever and the idea of living in another country was even worse. I guess it's kind of a similar experience. Next time I did it, I even made friends on the plane and we still talk to each other. Don't worry, you'll be fine. You'll be use to it before you realize. Have fun.
