Hi /trv/
Honestly my first time here but I figured that this would be a good place to ask.
After some recent drama innmy own life I've decided to finally go on my worldwide wander.

I plan on travelling from Australia (where I live) to South East Asia then buying a car and travelling east before turning north and travelling through the himalayas towards Eastern Europe and then over to Ireland and spend time with my family there.

I'm asking for any advice, I plan on travelling alone or at least not with anyone I know currently. I'm not an extremely...

First of all, buy spare parts for car.
Second of all, get a compass, because I'm pretty sure travelling east from South East Asia won't get you to Europe.

Thanks spare parts is a good idea, Im not just heading east I do plan to map it out a bit more.

Definitely plan to avoid the - stans as much as possible. Also I'm going to be well equipped for this trek I don't even plan on having the car the whole way so I'm going to be equipped enough as if I was planning on walking the trip so yeah I'll have a compass haha.

I've been saving up for a bit and I think I've made my decision on going away for a while, and that decision is Austria. I originally thought of it after seeing pictures of Hallstat, but there's a lot to do there. Also apparently I have family in Germany which is pretty close.

Hey. My gf is from Vienna and I've been to Austria four times since the start of the year.

Hallstat is turning into a bit of a tourist trap and I think spending a day there would be sufficient. It looks beautiful in the winter (especially after snow) but it's completely overrun with Chinese tourists. My gf's mother also said that the town has the highest suicide rate in Austria, which is peculiar.

Vienna is a fantastic city with great nightlife, culinary cuisine, and loads of activities....

Awesome, thanks for replying. Curious about the suicide rate but I kind of expected it to be touristy, 1 day is plenty. Vienna is likely where I'd stay, I don't know any German at all currently so the larger the city the more English speakers which is fine with me. I would like to learn some German so I don't seem like a douchebag tourist though. Also what is the Danube river, just a cool place to go or anything special there? Also I would love to check out Salzburg, sounds up my alley.

Born and raised Austrian here

There's stuff like that everywhere in Tyrol and Vorarlberg, also in Salzkammergut region (which is between Upper Austria, Salzburg and Styria).

If you want to do some hiking, I guess you could just go to Innsbruck and see from there, there's beautiful landscapes all around. Or go to Hohe Tauern national park.

English will be fine practically everywhere in Austria.

Feel free to ask anything, I don't actually know very much though

I'm not from Scotland but took a trip there, the highlands are beautiful and I would recommend going there. The area towards the middle (around Ben Nevis and Loch Ness if I remember correctly) was beautiful. I would highly recommend the isle of Skye, it's remote and scenic and a place that I feel everybody who goes to Scotland should see if possible. And Edinburgh if you've never been, of course.

I am thinking about walking from Inverness to Loch Ness and then to the Cairngorms, wild camping most or all of the way. Is this retarded and/or ambitious?

I'd make sure to pass through towns every day so that I can buy food. Thoughts?

When would you plan to go? How would you get from Loch Ness to the Cairngorms? The most direct route would most likely be a mindless trudge over moorland, which would get pretty boring pretty quickly.

I would personally walk down the Moray coast from Inverness, and then take the Speyside Way to get from Spey Bay to Nethy Bridge (avoiding Aviemore), and then entering the Cairngorms that way via Lairig an Laoigh.

You could walk down that, taking in closeby mountains, and link with the Lairig Ghru, walking...

Did you fall for the "no speed limits in Germany" meme? Germans take their speed laws very seriously. They'll go exactly 80km/h in an 80 zone and then floor it to 260km/h once in a limitless zone and then back to 120km/h within a second once the speed limit is back.

If you had a German license you'd get a hundred and something Euro fine and several month ban. Since you're a brit you'll probably just get the fine in the mail. Should have left the EU sooner.

I'm heading to Iceland with my girlfriend in the first week of December. We are planning to stay 5 to 6 days.

I would love some recommendations on prices of Hostels/guesthouses (will we find few outside Reykjavik?).

Also, car rental recommendations.

Your weather may vary. December isn't tourist season, and the kids are all out at the boarding schools (which are hotels in summer). I don't know what hostels would be open outside of the city, you'd have to check each on individually, but might need to skip the travel around if the weather required you to have a snorkel or other special equipment on your car.

You might even find a guide for some of your activities. So you know, Blue lagoon is 25 minutes south of the Keflavik airport, which is...

I went to Iceland in January. To answer on your questions I would say: be sure you have a decent car. There was a lot of snow when i was there . I rented my car from Hertz, because there are a lot of car rentals who are a bit shady. I would also suggest to rent an airbnb. It will be cold so wanna have your privacy with your girlfriend. If you go south go visit Vik beach ;)
If you have to pay your car, tours, food,... 1200 won't be enough for 2 I think
And very important: don't forget your thermal underwear ;)

One week in Amsterdam is too much time desu.

At any rate, you should budget 100 - 120 euros/day between hostels, food, weed, and museums.

Transportation might be another factor in that, though it's easy enough to walk around the city.
Think about getting a bike rather than using public transportation if you feel confident.

Hey /trv/,

me and a friend want to go backpacking for two or three weeks in december. When I was looking for possible destinations I stumbled upon Sri Lanka. It looks like a really nice island that should have enough stuff to do in our time span. But why is it that I hardly ever read on /trv/ about it? Apparently it has to offer a lot of culture, nature and nice beaches. Is there something that makes the often recommended SEA countries superior?

Transnistria is super safe. No issues at all in Tiraspol. It's also cheap. If you stay at the "Tiraspol hostel" say hi to the owner Tim (American). Just mind the 24hr limit and get out in time, remembering it can take a long time to get a bus. Also remember that if you go in to Transnistria from Ukraine and out in Moldova they won't like it and possibly give you headaches at the Moldovan border.

Minsk is also very safe. No issues at all. Remember that you need a visa in advance though which takes some work to get.

But...Odds are low anyone would ask you about your prescriptions unless you threw them into a bottle with 15 other unmarked drugs which many people do to save space, but they can flip open a book, or google a website and read that number and shape into their website to identify.
Since they are Class scheduled drugs and not even relevant for the flight itself, (like a valium would be) why do you...

I'm getting married next month and haven't planned a honeymoon.

We're both untraveled and in the US. I'm eyeing something like a 9 night Mediterranean cruise for $4k for everything.

Pros to using a "travel agency" for travel. Comprehensive travel insurance (in case of weather, illness or some other cancellation). The airfare plus a cruise is tricky. Make sure you have a day ahead of your cruise at your destination, imho, esp for such a long cruise.

Cons of booking with a travel agency, the cruise lines paid a commission...

What is it with people and cruises?
Overpriced alcohol and being stuck on a shitty boat for 10 days is not fun.

Aren't there any nice beaches or getaways where you can calm down, have a drink and fuck?

Has somebody had experience with working with the cannabis harvest in California?

How is it for non-Americans?
Is it worthwhile?

I'm not so much after the money, it would be sufficient if the stay was self-sustaining

Depends on what you want to do. If you want to be a trimmer, you will start off around $12-15 an hour, which depending where you live, isn't much in California. It is a tedious job. People envision it's just sitting around all day 420blazin it but that's far from the truth. It's just like any other job. Would you like to work on a farm? Because that is what it is.

You have to have a medical card, or at least everywhere I know of, you have to have one.

Western Hemisphere = Spanish

Asia = don't bother for travel, if working/expat then your country of residence. English is fine

Europe: From a business perspective, probably German. But English is fine

Hi /trv/,

My job lets me work remotely. My lease is almost up here in the pacific northwest of the US (end of January).

I was thinking of throwing my stuff in storage and working remotely from various asian cities for the better part of 2017 using airbnb. I went to college in Japan and worked there for a few years, so I'd love to head back.

Proposed itinerary

Feb: Japan
Mar: Japan
April: Taiwan
May: Hong Kong

Where else should I consider /trv/?

I assume that you earn a good wage and need a good internet connection. I would go to places like Singapore and Kuala Lumpur for a month each. People rag on Singapore for being boring but it really isn't if you actually live there. Kuala Lumpur is a good mix of modern and wild.

>I assume that you earn a good wage
I do, but frankly the cost of traveling isn't too much more than what i pay now for a place in the US. Most places on airbnb seem to be 1000-1500 USD--less than my rent.

definitely

Not that anno but KL is 100% safe. Also I agree with him on Singapore, it's a good expat city/country. It's hard to give proper advice tho OP. What are you looking for, could you name a few attributes?

I lived in Indonesia for a while, it's insanely hectic but Yogya is a really laid back place. Although the cities you named in your itinerary make me think you might like Jakarta, there's a big expat scene there.

What about China/Korea? Are you also looking for chill out beach places to work from?

I feel like I have literally nowhere else to turn to, but I'm really worried I am about to loose 500$ to this thing. I am trying to move to an apartment in NYC and I found a place that had a very nice price for where it was and what it included, but theres so many confusing things about this listing that I can't tell if its legitimate or not.

So when I first started communicating with this person about the apartment for rent they asked me for a photo of my drivers license because they needed to send it to the agent to confirm I am a real person, but they also...

Then there’s the thing that’s so crazy that I can’t help but think something is wrong here. The payment method that they specified on the email is through itunes gift cards. They host claims it’s because you need an id card to make the purchase of the gift cards, and that “a lot of properties are reserved this way now”, because they say someone once paid with a stolen credit card and it messed up their ability to host on airbnb for a while. The website to upload the codes is very odd as well, it doesn’t have security on it as well but it has one of those little...

Can you elaborate on that a little more? I mean I feel it is, but there's so many things that make me thing it might now be, I sent a message to airbnb directly through the main website with the invoice number and receipt number attached, and mentioned how I thought the url was weird. I'm hoping they get back to me really soon about it but I don't know how reliable their message center is.

Post your travel shoes.
I found this combination pretty good, they're both very comfortable for longer walks and even easy hikes, also the Nikes are very light and dry fast. However I can't do proper treks in them, especially mountainous ones.
So any recommendation on comfy hiking sneakers (is that a thing?) is welcome

>Comfy hiking sneakers

Tbh it does depend on where you're trekking/hiking, but since it usually involves waddling through streams and rivers, humid growth and the weather can go sour, sneakers are not the best option. I know hiking boots are not really fashionable but they are always the best option (goretex).

Tbh proper hiking boots are just too heavy for me to carry around when I'm only hiking every two weeks or so

Serbia, mainly the capital Belgrade (Beograd). I'm here right now, originally from Australia and these women are fucking beautiful.
But they won't pay attention to you unless they see you're a foreigner with money, which shouldn't be a problem since the RSD (dinar) is utter filth compared to the Euro, AUD, USD and GBP. You can live like a king for 2 months with roughly $2000 dollars.
