Hey /trv/, 22 yr old amerifag here. A relative of mine works for an airline and I have the privilege of flying to a handful of different international cities for a great discount. I have done a fair amount of traveling but I am being a plebfag and being committed to a job and various artistic/musical projects at home. I should probably go see the world before shit hits the fan. Considering doing wooff/workaway/etc. so I can work on music while I travel. What should I make a priority? Interests include: music, art, field recording, abandoned places, food >Beijing,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
welp im probably going to be homeless soon. I guess my plan is to live out of my car for a while and just travel around working odd jobs as I go to pay for gas/food. Im planning on staying towards the southwest maybe up along the west coast where its warm. By the summer I might try and go east coast because ive got a lot of family up there. Any tips? Where can I sleep in my car and not have some fuck sneak up on me, or have any cops bother me?
>>1070000 Going to assume you're in the US. Put things (flags or blankets work well) over your windows at night. I assume some of the desert areas of the southwest and probably some parts of the northwest go on for miles with very little human interaction (although there may be that one asshole rancher who says you're on his lawn). Buy camping gear.
Hello, I want to learn french abroad (France or Belgium). Somebody told me there are some schools for immigrants that are ridiculous cheaper than the schools you find on the internet when looking for language exchange. Do anybody knows about a good one in Paris, Marseille, Bruxelles or any other major city, any recommendation will grand.
Your levels of stress will decrease, and you'll save a ton of money given how much cheaper rent is. More affordable. More open spaces. Better cafe culture. Better beer culture.
One weird thing is how far from the city people commute. A lot of people have a rural life, but commute to center city. It's sprawled out pretty bad. It's also a bit younger as uni kids make up a large portion of people who live in the city.
Seedy areas are a little less predictable than they are in NYC. There are pockets all over the place.
I went to Heraklion a few years ago and it was nice city. Drink a ton but mostly at cafes and bars. Someone told me while we there that it's a known for its nightlife along the beaches, I guess in Hersonissos and Malia, which are nearby the city. I was there in January though, so it wasn't peak season.
Hi /trv/, I really like Brutalist architecture and Cold War ruins Anyone got some cool 'off the beaten path' recommendations in these areas? Also, what is the current status on Skrunda and Irbene in Latvia?
At the moment I am looking at: Rummu Patarei Prison Imperial Russian Forts in Liepaja Karosta Plokštinė missile base some Soviet museum near Vilnius
any recommendations outside sights are welcome too Cheers
>>1069827 If you want to be REALLY off the beaten path, there is a humongously big Soviet barracks in Berlin, a 15-minute walk from the overground station "Bernau-Friedenstal" (I realise that this technically isn't Berlin anymore). I've never met anyone there. You can find old soviet newspapers, I regularly find buttons and other stuff. It has a big watchtower and lots of dilapidated stuff.
Has anyone spent 5+months driving and tent camping in the USA at KOAs (or whatever)?
It seems all I do is work minimum wage canadian jobs, and then read at home until my next shift. It seems like I could spend $30/day for my campsite, and just drive from site to site as I feel/the weather changes for an entire year for about 10000 + peanutbutter and water. and read and just not work for a year.
>>1069820 KOAs are expensive as fuck. Stay in them only once in a while. Otherwise just stay in national and state parks which usually charge $10-15 per night in camp sites. You can also camp anywhere on BLM land for free, just won't have amenities.
That way you won't have to just eat peanut butter all year long. Get yourself a stove and cook as you go along. Yeah it's probably doable on $10k a year depending how much you spend on gas and what else you do.
You could also go into the woods for a longer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What's the best way, booking in advance or looking through local companies?
I'm 23 and in the past I booked in advance and both times it didn't go well. Either they had loads of hidden fees which I had to pay after making a non-refundable payment or pick up from airport didn't turn up.
>>1069953 Well there'd be a point in the duration of your stay where it'd be cheaper to buy a cheap car then to rent one. Obviously that point depends on the price of the used car you purchase but rentals are rarely cheap in first world countries so you wouldn't have to be using it for too long to justify buying. The longest I've rented a car for was about a week in the US, I've never bought but I imagine buying a car in another country where you don't have an address could be a hassle, that...

On a £6000 budget (roughly $8646) how long could I go backpacking around south-east Asia/India kind of area in hostels and such? I've heard you can live off £5 a day in Vietnam. Everyone in the UK seems to be going either SE Asia or Australia, are they worth the hype? Is it actually better travelling alone and is it easy to meet friends in hostels and such?
I went there with 4kÂ£, sure you can live off 5Â£ a day but you better count on 10/15Â£ average. Even eating local food (1Â£ meal) and camping, something is gonna go wrong so plan it ahead. Get your own motorbike make everything cheaper if that's your concern. But it also make everything more exiting and unique (here was my concern). Alone is ok, I went to cities went I wanted to meet english speakers, but I'm happy to be on my own for days. If you can't handle it, forget about Asia. The all country side is quiet and awesome if you enjoy that.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
- Visit Skye, it's amazing. I've been to almost anywhere in Scotland and it's my favourite part. The scenery is amazing - Drive the coastal route from Oban to Fort Williams (Ben Nevis) to Mallaig. From Mallaig you can also take the ferry to Skye. - See Cairngorms National Park. It has a lot to offer. Hiking, cycling, skying or just driving around - See Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park - Try to visit at least Islay, Jura, Arran or Mull. Google them to find which interests you the most - Drive from Inverness to Brora, and possibly onwards... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1069764 Castle Doune. It was most of the castle in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and if you stop in the gift shop on the way in they have "loaner coconuts" so you can gallop around in style.
This is a great stop to surprise fellow travelers with. Didn't tell people I was with why we were stopping at Doune, just that it was a castle I particularly wanted to see because of "its history," which was technically true. My power level went to over 9,000 in their eyes for the rest of the trip.
Hello /trv/. I am thinking of visiting Beirut, but I was wondering if the conflicts that happened in the past years are still going on. How safe would the city be? Also, how does visa-on-arrival work? Is there anything I should be aware of other than what the name implies? And lastly, is there any other cities worth visiting in Lebanon? Would crossing to Jordan be worth it? How much would that cost me in addition?
oh, one question I forgot: If there is a Israel stamp on your passport, you can't enter Lebanon. So I was wondering if the opposite is enforced too. Would I still be able to travel to Israel some time later with a Lebanon stamp?
Hey /trv/, ill be going to Vientiane, Laos for a week tomorrow to visit a group of friends 4-5, any suggestions on what to do? in vientiane and near vientiane. Rather not go to other cities overnight due to circumstances of the people in the group that does not let me so
However, does anyone know any good places near vientiane such as waterfalls or nature treks that would make good day trips? Thanks!
>>1069751 It's not natural, but the area around Nam Ngum (I) dam, including the gigantic Aang Nam Ngum reservoir, is quite beautiful and fairly interesting. Roughly 70km from Vientiane. Plenty of good riverside walks/bikes/boats in the city, too.
