I am in Houston, and it would be a little warmer than Dallas for sure, but similar on culture.

Honestly it wa a very big disappointment.

you won't find anything in Rome in a great shape which connects to the roman empire, only the pantheon.

There are nice churches, that is all. Everything else looks like rotten and they don't care. They don't care about their heritage.

found a sort of cheap flight to Guatemala.

Kinda want to go but a bit scared of being mugged or worse.

Did some research, and it seems violent crimes against tourists are not uncommon. Yet there appears to be quite a lot of tourism - without armed guards.

should i go ?

I'm quite well-travelled and speak spanish, but this seems like it'd be the most risky destination for me so far.

you could hitchhike most of the way, but ride greyhound down to Kamloops so you can get on the transcanada in civilization to head east

take advantage of the internet instead of just standing on the side of the road. all of the classified sites like craigslist, used_.ca and kijiji have rideshare boards, there's some sites like poparide.com that have people doing the major intercity routes

in some places there's public transit that runs between cities, I can ride a bctransit bus 100km for 2.50 between two cities, takes a lot of research to peace together many of those

Is touching allowed in strip clubs? How about sucking nipples? I went to a strip club in Toronto sububrbs last year where they allowed all that shit, but it was a far cry from Vegas and may have been way more lax.

In my opinion strip clubs are the ultimate waste of money a man could ever invest in, no matter where you are. They’re made for men who have no game and who are easily suckered. The thought of slipping a $10 bill, let alone $600, into the g-string of a second-level whore is beyond me.

But you’re an adult with your own money, so onward..

I'm from BR hue and I'll be backpacking through Europe from December to March with a couple of friends! I've never done it before, so I'm literally having multiple feelings ranging from anxiety to orgasmic-on-the-road-happiness.

First of all, this polish film I watched, "All These Sleepless Nights" got me inspired as hell. All the nightlife and living and spontanous scenes got me going. And now I'm thirsty for this.

So I have some questions:

1. What books should I take? (Walden and The Catcher in The Rye is already in my bag)
2.What albums/bands should I take in my iPod?
3.What parties should I go? I'd really like to know the true nightlife from every single place I visit.
4.What drugs should I try, in which places they are trustable? Because why not trip while you trip
5.Company? Let's backpack together! Or maybe we could hang out wherever city I'm visiting.

I'll be visiting France, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria and maybe Poland.

Peace out

Absolutely. I went to Egypt in February and the weather was really nice. Rarely too hot. The only hot stretch was a mini bus to Abu Simbel through the desert with no AC. Contrary to what you may think too, anywhere well south of Cairo, the Nile is very clean and you can actually drink the water right from the river. Take a felucca trip if you can. I recommend only a few days in Cairo, gtfo as quick as you can. I know nothing about traveling from Jordan.

alright /trv/ i'm a total travel noob so I figured I'd ask the internet for some help.

the gf and i are looking to end 2016 or start 2017 with an all inclusive vacation. that being said we can't really decide where to go.

We are leaning towards Mexico because she's never been. Keep in mind we don't want to do much other than to drink our asses off and eat. We don't party so it doesn't have to have great night life. I've been to Cancun and kind of hated it so she doesn't seem to want to visit that side.

I would recommend Punta Cana.
Personally I have been to hotel Occidental Punta Cana, which is cool because there's a night club attached to the resort, and all the people from other resorts go there (there's only like 2-3 night clubs in Punta Cana).
Food and drinks are great, rooms are decent, beach is superb. Anyway you can check prices as they're pretty straight-forward; more luxurious = more expensive.
The only thing that sucks about Punta Cana is you won't want to leave the hotel. As soon as you step out of the gates and venture into the city,...

They are all the same. You won't get out of the hotel territory anyway, and inside it is no different from any other resort anywhere in the world.

Do you by any chance have a flowchart like this for the German language? I've looked in the /int/ wiki without success.

Sorry, not here to answer your question. But is Russian an easy language to learn if you're an English speaker?
>>
>>1186894
Why would it be an easy language if it's completely unrelated? I'm Slavic and Russian is still pretty incomprehensible to me, I'd have easy time learning its grammar and pronunciation isn't a problem, but still would have to learn vocab.

I learned French and German both in the same year. I've been trying Russian two years now and can barely read and write it

Never traveled before and thinking about going to Hawaii on a whim sometime this December or January, is it worth it if only for about 3-4 days and on a budget of a couple hundred dollars tops (not including airfare)? My plans, or lack thereof, basically consist of just showing up, pitching camp at some site, and visiting whatever beaches or trails that're within walking distance. Needless to say, open to any and all suggestions or advice.

Do it! Hawaii is amazing for whatever you do! Maybe add another day for 5 days and it will definitely be worth it
>>
>>1186874

OP, it will help if you tell us which Hawaiian island you will stay in. I've been to the main island and Maui.

Yes, several hundred dollars (not including airfare) will be enough for three to four days, as long as you really count your pennies. Everything is imported there so it's an expensive place.

Why are you going for only three or four days? I'd highly recommend going longer. Stay in a hostel. The wildlife and beaches are beautiful. Also, Hawaii is not for partying and getting...

Thank you for the encouragement, glad to hear it's nice!

Planned on doing the big island but I'll definitely take your recommendation between the two. 3-4 days is just about all I manage as is thanks to work, but if 5-7 or some such is real difference maker, I'd definitely say fuck it and take the plunge. Luckily relaxing and sightseeing are exactly all that I plan on doing. I'm quite shy and only 19 anyways, so no worries about any...

Has anyone faked being Jewish to go on a birthright trip? I'd like to attempt it. I just have to prove that at least one of my parents is Jewish. How would I go about doing that?

I'll be in sydney for a week in december (10th to 18th) and I wonder if there is some cool places or events where I can meet some other LGBTQ+ people.
I'd love to go to some underground clubs if you know some.

I might be in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago Iowa and Indiana during December/January.

How will the weather be?

What are some things to do?

Any cities I should skip or include any nearby places? Restaurants that I should try?

Siberia tier cold with lots of snow.

>What are some things to do?
Too general. There's tons of stuff to do.

I'd skip Iowa. There's nothing in Iowa m8. Unless you have to go.

Personally, I'd add Madison to your Wisconsin trip or skip Milwaukee and just do Madison if you can't do both.

If youre a craft beer drinker Toppling Goliath (the second or arguably top brewery in the world) is in Iowa, and they are releasing KBBS (#2 on beer advocates best 250 beers in the world) in January. You have to win a lottery to be able to buy your 1 bottle limit. It costs like 20ish USD a bottle and it sells aftermarket for like 1200-1600 USD per bottle. But like I said, IF you are a craft beer drinker its like a pilgrimage to Mecca.

I have a credit with Westjet of $600. I would like to go somewhere to do a lot of diving (snorkeling/scuba). Everyone I know goes to Mexico or Cuba, so I would like to avoid those and go somewhere a little less travelled. I don't care for night life or shopping. I would like somewhere that is good for photography as well as the diving. Where would you suggest?

I don't speak any other language than English unfortunately and I'm female, so somewhere safe and less chance of me getting zika.

I've looked on Lonely Planet and while I really want...

I've been diving in New Caledonia. It's good so long as you don't dive in touristy locations. Duck Island in Noumea is a place you shouldn't bother paying for SCUBA gear, snorkelling is good enough.
Diving around the light house is good if you're looking to see fish. Lot of cool stuff like Barracuda and Sharks.

There are wrecks you can see if you go further north because of the islands involvement in the Pacific campaign.

>>1186692
Lovely! I've been with nurse sharks before. New Caledonia isn't one of the WestJet destinations. I'm stuck with the places they go to - pictured above.

I have been happy diving in
- Fort Lauderdale FL
- Key Largo FL
- Bocas del Toro, Panama. Rather safe and as far as I know, Zika free.
I have heard great things about
- Roatan, Honduras. May not be safe as a lone female, and Zika.
- Thailand
- Cocos Island liveabord, Costa Rica
- El Gouna, Egypt. According to an Egyptian friend of mine it's a very safe area (basically a resort city), and it looks very cheap because people are scared of Egypt right now. Like, $75 a night at a 4-star hotel cheap.
