I'm visiting Vienna next week with the gf but I've heard alot of people say its overrated without being able to give me a good explanation. Any advice on the pittfalls and/or must do's? I've visited the ski areas of Austria before and speak some German.
I had a nice time there, I saw loads of egon shiele paintings, beetoven's grave, little hedgehogs on the street and there's this crazy theme park called Prater that runs 24 hrs, theres a roller coaster that is a pitch dark room with these flashy lights, it felt like and lsd trip or something.
Hey /trv/, me and my girl are wanting to head to an all inclusive over Christmas/new years. Leaving on the 27th of dec.
Whats the cheapest/most bang for your buck option? We're coming from Canada and would pref something in the Caribbean. Cuba would be ideal, but would prefer wherever is cheapest. What would you all recommended? Also what sites are the best to purchase from? Or would we be better off booking flights and hotel rooms ourselves and not going through something like sunwing. Thanks!
Fellow canadianbro here, I travel to Cuba 2-3 times a year. Christmas/NYE is definately one the most expensive time of the year to go there, so try to go right after NYE or before xmas if your budget is tight. I won't even talk about the other destinatipns such as Cancun or Punta Cana, since Cuba is always cheaper. You can directly shop on Sunwing, you won't find a lower price anywhere else.
What kind of place are you looking for? How old are you? Do you want a peaceful secluded resort? Do you wanna go out to nightclubs every day? What's your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have about ~$5000 saved up and plan on backpacking across Vietnam, and maybe Cambodia if I get that far. I don't plan on staying in 5 star hotels and eating at high end restaurants everyday, but is this enough for, say, a month of wandering the country and seeing what kind of wacky adventures I can stumble into?
That is enough for a month. Rent a nice scooter and you're good to go. You will find decent hotels for $15 - $20 a night. You could find them for less too, Ive stayed in places for as little as $6/night.
You can eat 3 meals for $5. I found really good pho for $1.60 usd. When I realized how cheap food was I was paying $15/day for good food rather than double portions of street food.
>>1169047 Pretty much this. I'm slightly more optimistic though and like the idea of building a new world and branch of human culture.....but even if the thing just fucking explodes and kills everyone a minute after liftoff, those few who attempt will achieve immortality in a sense. If you've got a comfy life, career , and are happy with your current and lokley prospects for the future I can see why you would be afraid, resentful, or just apathetic about this notion though.
Planning to take a roadtrip from socal up to Seattle at the end of October. I'll probably spend a day or two in seattle then wind back down through the forest roads to see all the small backwoods towns.
any recommendations on things to do and see along the way?
I was actually going to post a thread. Similar situation as you lad.
__________OG TEXT__________________ Hey Anons, is doing a road trip from SF to Vancouver during November a bad idea? I'm asking because I hear the weather is shit there and it is almost always raining. Thinking about taking 4 days off to do so.
One day to drive to Portland and rest. Next day to get to know the place and drive to Seattle.
Second day same deal, get to know Seattle and drive to Vancouver and spend the night there.
Third day, get to know Vancouver and drive back... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was in the Tehran in April and best advice is don't respond to woman in street that flash you
Hard to explain but in street covered Muslim Iranian woman will flash gringos/foreigner and ask you to follow them for sex.
It happened to me and I almost was killed. I follow her she wasn't really covered just head scarf she was maybe 20? I went with her to her house and we start to kiss and I got her naked and I was in underwear. Her brother or cousin or i don't maybe 30 years old came in and start to choke me.. Lucky...

>>1168188 >>1168195 WTF are you guys on about? It's a /trv/ story about a woman, at 90 years, instead of trying eke out a few more years, made the most of the time she had left with an endless road trip.
It should be inspiring that it's never too late, but also at the same time inspire you to not wait until you are 90 to seize the day.
Your best bet would be to couch surf or AirBnB in the DC area, somewhere within distance of a Metro. Most of the National Monuments and Museums are free. If you have more cash and time you could take a train/plane/bus to NYC, find alternate lodging and look at the buildings and places you have seen on TV.
i'm very interested in the German language and hope to visit someday. i plan on going to school for it in Cleveland and it would help to get some insight from anyone that speaks it or even some some native people from Germany.
A lot of people are trying to learn German in order to go to a University for free. I self studied before going to my local university to sign up for an advanced German course. I started off using apps to learn words such as Memrise, then I started reading and translating childrens books starting from books you would read as a small child first starting school. Then goosebumps from R.L. Stein, and then Harry Potter and Eragon. By the time I started reading popular novels I had a pretty decent vocabulary. I started speaking it using Google Translate voice option and it picked... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1167876 Man, I can't express my thanks for this site. I have been wanting to pursue a master's degree and live in Germany but the fear of costs and difficulty of admission have kept me from spending much time researching the possibility. With this, the misconceptions I held were cleared so thank you. Do you know anything about the chance of finding work in Germany after the program is complete?
I've been really interested in going to Morocco lately. I'm interested in Northen Africa in general and Morocco seems to be the safest and most stable country to go to right now. Problem is I know very little french and no Arabic. Would it be terribly difficult to travel around anyway? Also I can fly directly to either Agadir or Marrakech which city is the best base if I want to travel around a bit in the country?
Morocco is a really nice country, I went there about a year ago and it inspired me to go all around the Middle East
You'll be fine with just English in the major cities and tourist areas, but it wouldn't hurt to learn a little bit of French. Even the basics would be really helpful. Don't bother with Arabic, the Moroccan accent is so strong even other Arabs can't understand it, so you'd have no chance.
For Agadir/Marrakesh, it depends on what you want to see. Marrakesh would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>I definitely want to check out the mountains That's so nice to hear instead of the usual >is $600 a good deal for a one-night camel trek? I've only got 36 hours in the country. I go hiking in the Atlas every year so I could answer any of your questions in that regard. Definitely learn as much French as you possibly can. It'll make the difference between you only being able to communicate with 90% of Moroccans, or only with people who want your money. Michel Thomas+Duolingo+LP phrasebook... Comment too long.

Looked into Buenos Aires before and I swear it's actually pretty expensive.
From that thread I concluded Ukraine or Serbia for a well-rounded place to have a good time. Thailand isn't cheao anymore but I would gladly play that premium to have everything the country has to offer that accessible. There's a reason it's such a hot spot
>>1156572 She loves it. She is in Central China. ESL at a University. Whihc I believe she was placed at from whatever ESL program she underwent sent her there. It's not her first time out of the country, she was in the Navy. Also has a Masters in Education. This is her first teaching job. More or less went Navy-Bachelors-Masters-Teaching House-China.
How should you go with flirting with a girl from a different country? She's from China and taking college here in the US. I tried flirting with her through text but she kinda backfired. She said sorry, not for me (we were texting btw). She did call me a handsome tall guy and we are planning to improve her english this weekend. She still wants to meet up and also this is our first time meeting up. I met her on Yik Yak. I'm 6'5 for those of you who are wondering and she's 5'2. What should I do? Should I even try to flirt with her more and see how it goes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1169674 >>1169674 Is that Brenda Song? Anyways, just do classical nice guy romantic stuff that is usually trash with Western women these days. Then get her in a situation to make a move, but in a manner that's not obvious, even though you bot know it's going to go down. But so she can feel like it "just happened" and she's a good girl.
I have a little excess in my bank account and would like to travel somewhere interesting.
Things you should know about me. I speak conversational Spanish and Arabic (Shami dialect). I'm not planning to shop a ton in any of these locations. I'm interested in both exploring a city and venturing out to different sights in the countryside.
Here are a few places I'd be interested to visit that seem to have consistent fares between $600 - $900 round trip Bangkok Bogota Beirut Beijing Shanghai Moscow

>>1169465 go to Hong Kong instead of Shanghai or Beijing. You can tour HK for two days, ferry to Macau and gamble/fuck for two days, then transit to Beijing. Nonetheless, HK and Macau are better and more tourist-friendly
>>1169518 Not looking to fuck abroad. I'm not that thirsty. I'm not opposed to it, I just don't care to pursue women I don't speak the language of. Plus, night life is a good way to drain funds extremely quickly.
>>1169542 Can you do air plus Hong Kong for a week on $1600. I've seen air cost upwards of $1200 for Hong Kong. I'd love to go there though.
Anyone from New Zealand? Specifically Auckland area? I'm lookinf for punk, metal, indie, alt. scenes/shows or something of the sorts around december-january as I'll be there on vacation. Any cool clubs or bars like that?
>>1169219 Like, "I am afraid of Earthquakes so I won't go to Japan?" No.
Japan experiences a lot of minor quakes that do little or no damage, and a very few larger ones that do some damage in a limited area, and an occasional big ass monster that causes a lot of destruction over a somewhat larger area and kills some people. Experiencing a minor quake gives you an interesting travel story. The odds against having trouble with a major one a pretty long: would you be afraid to go to California?

I saw similar thread about guy asking about permanent relocation from USA to EU.
I answered him as best as I could. What bothers me, im total oposite, I still see USA as an land of oportunityand new starts are possible. I even come from country that most people choose as dream paradise vacation destintion in EU.

In the US, the south is more slow tempo. But you don't want methland, racial tension, fat ass, deep south. I'd say consider Austin, Texas, but you'd be very late to the party. Maybe someplace in North Carolina. (The better of the Carolinas from what I gather. Other anons feel free to weigh in on that.)
>>1168872 croatia, small country (honestly,some cities in US are bigger than whole country)that has from snowy mountains to grassy flat planes and whole south is basically one huge beach. We had an war ~20 years ago and people were so feed up with weapons, violence and bad shit in general theyll do anything to avoid anything bad. Its really peaceful.

So you have 26 days of: >preparing, researching, learning some language for the trip >waking up at 6:00am and making the most of each day >going to bed at 10:00pm >learning how to cook some good basic food >going out and exercising
Sounds like you've got nearly a month of good, solid, and healthy fun/growing ahead of you. Who knows, that might even help you get more out of your travels and more out of your life.
