Im looking to go to the states for about a month at the end of this year / start of 2017. I'm looking for somewhere thats not to touristy with relatively cheap lift passes and accommodation. What are some good mountains / areas that would suit? Where are the local hangouts?
I think this is your problem. If it's a good place to ski, it's going to be popular. If it isn't so good, then it won't be popular but then why would you want to go? My advice is to plan your trip based on time, and then destination -- usually the first week after the New Year holiday has good deals at major resorts. So, if I were you I'd look at packages for the week of Jan. 9, 2017, maybe at Copper Mountain (Colorado)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What do? I'm a Belgian guy, 24 and have been living in South-Africa for 2 years now on a volunteering visa (3 years term) without actually volunteering. Back then I thought that was the easiest way to stay for so long. Came here for adventure and live independent and met a wonderful south african girl. She is still studying (second year law) so her immigrating to Belgium is not an option for now and I don't want to do long distance.
Next year my visa is going to expire and laws have changed and the maximum term you can get now is 1 year... This is not long... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm from Belgium, region of Ghent! Where are you from?
First of all, good luck on trying to get a ticket for Tomorrowland, it's sold out in a few seconds every year. You'll have a great time but pack enough money because food, drinks, ... everything is really expensive at the festival site. Are you sure you want to go there? Dour Festival is way cheaper and my personal favourite, but expect some basic stuff and zero decoration BUT good music! Pukkelpop is also a nice alternative to TML and has superb organization. I went twice to those festivals next to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you're interested in beer (which you should be), you should go to 't Waagstuk and Kulminator in Antwerp. Both bars are pretty famous worldwide. They both have a ginormous range of beers on offer. You could check out Delirium in Brussels, but there's an ungodly amount of drunk tourists in there, most of the time.
Hola. Soy Uruguayo y quiero viajar a chile con mi novia (solos , sin agencia de viaje). El vuelo es muy barato 125u$s (ida y vuelta en avion c/u) y estadías en hoteles también. Planeábamos ir a santiago pero no tenemos mucha idea de que hay para visitar. Nos dijeron Puerto Mont, pero el precio sube a 300 u$sd... alguna recomendación? alguien que nos de hospedaje gratis o nos saque a pasear? jaja
>>1066687 I understand your request but my written Spanish sucks, so I hope you speak english. Puerto Montt is really awesome, if you don't have the money for a flight take a night bus they're really cheap in chile and top tier quality about 50k CLP for a return trip. (pullman or turbus) Else Santiago and the surrounding area is pretty cool, Valpo/Vina is awesome (4k CLP for the bus trip) else kinda expensive but worth it.
>>1066687 Santiago es buen destino como centro histórico y para conocer algo de la cultura chilena, pero como atractivo turístico es mejor viña/valparaiso. Por suerte éste destino queda cerca de Santiago, como ya lo dijeron, pero al ser atractivo turístico los precios suben. No puedo dar una opinión concreta respecto a Puerto Mont.
Spring break is coming up and I nabbed tickets for $315 round trip. I do have a 19hr layover in Panama city giving me time for a quick tour of the city, I might even stay and do a land crossing into Costa Rica. I was thinking of doing a loop from San Jose to Arenal then maybe off to Liberia and west along the coast and back. I would like to do this on a motorcycle if I could. I know I can rent bikes there and I am legal to ride. Anyone have any experience riding in Costa Rica? Or just have some places for me to check out, even if they are not on the loop I mentioned?
>>1066660 Went to both Panama and CR last year. The road between Panama City and Costa Rica is long, it will take up a whole day. If you have a day to waste then go ahead, otherwise fly.
Arenal is pretty great, I stayed in La Fortuna and there's a lot of things to see and do there. Didn't go to Liberia but it's just a resort town, I wouldn't recommend it much. Instead you should go to Manuel Antonio and possibly Jaco if you want a beach town.
I didn't ride in CR but wish I could have. Didn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1066660 f you want to visit the Arenal area, I would recommend that you head to Alajuela and not San Jose after you arrive in Costa Rica. Alajuela is much closer to the airport and also closer to Arenal/La Fortuna. It is literally like five minutes from the airport to Alajuela while San Jose is over 30 minutes away.
From the Arenal area you can go to the cloud forests of Monteverde using a "bus-boat-bus" trip: You'll get picked up at your hotel in La Fortuna by a minibus that'll take you to the Arenal... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /trv/, I'm going to visit Vienna and Budapest in mid february. I'll stay 4 days in Vienna and 3 in Budapest. How much of a budget would we need? We already booked the planes and hotels for the stay.
Also, what places do you recommend me to see? Thanks!
Bump for interest, I want to go to Budapest in March.
I think, personally, you're going to have to budget harder for Vienna, as it's really a more expensive city than Budapest. Budapest being a central/eastern European city in terms of development, and not costing as much as most western cities.
I'm considering traveling to Copenhagen in March or April. I've never been to Copenhagen or anywhere else in Denmark for that matter, so any tips would be useful. Best hostel to stay in, restaurants, sights, bars and so on. I have spent some time in norway before, is the price range in Copenhagen as high as in oslo for example?
Check out Tivoli Gardens in the center of the city.
It's one of the oldest amusement parks on Earth and its wood coaster is the oldest in Europe. It's so old in fact that a park employee has to ride each train and manually brake the train at key points in the ride. The park was also one of the inspirations for the design of the original Disneyland.
Hey fellow travellers, I've recently inherited a small piece of land and without going into details, I've considered converting it into an off the grid travel destination.
My goal is to have a couple dozen tiny homes / cottages, scattered over 30 acres of land with a focus on communal vacationing. All of the cottages would be basically cabins, no running water, limited electricity but augers for heat and outdoor natural showers / toilets at at least half the spots.
I know I'd go if somebody offered this, but I can't help but wonder if I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well I have always loved that idea. But keep in mind people won't want to pay to be somewhere without running water. Depending on the state the location is in you could collect rain water and naturally filter the water. Every cabin should have its own toilet and stand up shower at least.
>>1066604 Okay I understand a little bit more now by what you mean. Like a campground. I thought you meant like a self sustaining outdoor motel kind of thing. I'm sure that will work if there are other camping spots around that fill up fast, not a shabby idea :)
