>>1152871 >BERLIN 3 days/4 nights Renting bikes a good idea? If you enjoy cycling sure. Berlin is a fairly bike-friendly city and there's a lot of a green areas in Berlin. Generally good to explore by bike. Consider cycling around Lake Wannsee maybe. Might as well see Potsdam this way which is worth spending a day in in its own right. If you or the gf enjoys botanical garden try Gärten der Welt in Marzahn.

So I want to go to Los Angeles. Specifically the Burbank area. I have a friend out there on internship so having a place to stay won't be a problem. I've traveled a few times w/ parents but never alone or with another friend who might come. I'm currently living in Cincinnati.
Is Los Angeles a good city? Never been more west than Indiana. I love the sun and don't mind warm weather.
Also, I'm in college but got some cash lined up. Would a good budget be around $600? I want to leave in mid October during fall break. Is it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you book a cheap reliable flight then i think, you can make do with 600 depending on how long you stay here but always try coming with MORE than youll actually need. Burbank is mostly a suburban family neighborhood, but youll be next to North Hollywood so youll have plenty to do...if you have a car Besides traffic, and homeless id say LAs a good city. Im a native, though, so im pretty biased.
What kinda more information do you want, by the way?
>>1152827 >>1152850 Thanks for the tips! Cool to here it from natives. It'll only be for 3 or 4 days I'd stay. I know I'm not getting the most money from my flight but only time I could go the rest of the year.
Just got talked to my friend and he's got a car down there. So besides air fare and throwing him some money I'm good. I'm really excited to go to the beaches near there. Are they good? my buddy hasn't gone yet. Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/, I'm going to be in Atlanta for a few days and want to take some time at the end to visit New Orleans. I've been before but really enjoyed the city.
One thing I noticed - there's an Amtrak route straight from one city to the other that takes most of the day. Has anyone taken this route, and was it nice in terms of views and scenery? More to the point, what are Amtrak trains like? I know you can get little cabins, but that seems a bit antisocial - are trains in the USA full of crazy homeless people like the buses are?

>>1152775 Amtrak is pretty comfy in my experience. I took it from NYC to Charleston, SC and was impressed. This was back in maybe 2007, and they had outlets, I had never seen that on a plane at that time, and that wasn't a thing on busses either. The windows are large and the legroom is mich more than you'd get on a plane. Baggage was much less of a hassel as well. There was a dining car, but the options were pretty limited. It was nice just go be able to walk around, really. So if the price is right, I'd recommend... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

getting over this kind of thing is worth it. trust me. If you told me sth like youre in a crime riddled shitshow like Mexico, i'd say go home, but you'll get used to it. Also, you're not a chick, so i guess India is not a rape promise for you. Go learn some yoga or musical instrument, any dumb chick in their mid-20 will suck your dick if you play the "i was in India" card well enough.
I currently live in Japan and I've done most of South East Asia. Really want to be somewhere tropical in January and I'm considering Hawaii - for the sake of something different and considering it's relatively cheap from Tokyo.
I'm not sure what it's like on a budget/backpacker style budget. I could, for instance, give Vietnam a second go instead. Any impressions? Also, being surrounded by Americans on vacation... is that a plus or a con? (It might generally be annoying but on the other hand I could try to use my British accent on girls who speak...

I'm really tired of Colorado for a number of reasons after growing up here.
Most of my friends have felt the same and jumped ship already. Cities like LA, New York, and Portland are all kind of the next logical step for people from Denver/Boulder and Coloradans seem to be flocking there.
I'm curious if anyone has recently moved to a lesser-known city recently and been pleasantly surprised. I've heard Montana is really nice, smaller towns in Oregon, and Vermont all have similar feels.
>>1152650 I'm from Denver. Most towns you'd want to live in Montana, e.g. Bozeman, Missoula, are basically Colorado style enclaves. Seen similar things in Idaho. I'm in NW Wyoming now, but it's a bit too cowboy. I'm thinking of heading down to Prescott, AZ
of course in general less islamic than arab countries. but like every other countries, there are conservative cities and more seculer cities. and it can be change even in the city.
for example, as a tourist probably you will visit to istanbul/sultanahmet, fatih. fatih is most conservative district in istanbul. but if you take a tram from sultanahmet and go to ortaköy, everything change.

Neighboring Reunion Island here. We go to Mauritius when we need a nearby holiday break, it's a 45mn flight (expensive as balls tho, between 200~500 EUR, one of the most expensive on a flight time to price ratio). Been there 4 times, we mainly go to Mauritius for cheap luxury lifestyle. You stay at 5* hotels and eat out every meal for the budget of a 2* hotel and sandwiches budget in Reunion.

>>1152702 Great hikes, breathtaking views of the pitons, french lifestyle with a tropical twist. Quite expensive, service is poor compared to Mauritius or other touristic destinations, but we loved it enough to move here, and everybody I know who visited enjoyed the place a lot. Do you have any specific topics of interest?

I've still got 3 weeks of holiday left for this year but none of my friends are able to come anywhere with me for various reasons. Either no one has any money or are not able to take time off work.
I've got the money to go pretty much anywhere in Europe without too much worry for a week but I don't know if there's any point going alone. Then again, the alternative is to just sit at home which I already did with my other week.
Is this even a question? Option 1: Sit at home, watch tv, masturbate, be bored, wash rinse repeat for the rest of your life. Option c: Go to any city in Europe, go outside, go to museums, do stuff, be active, maybe meet people, maybe don't meet people, be happy to have spent a week abroad.
Just go, faggot.
Take something to entertain you while on your trip, if you're afraid of being alone.
Hi, I'm travelling to America for the first time in a month or so.

>>1151862 You'll fill out a customs declaration while on the plane, nothing to it, you'll have nothing to declare (right?). Just don't lie. You'll arrive at the International terminal and go through immigration first, they'll ask you what is the purpose of your visit, and as long as you don't spill your spaghetti, they'll stamp you in (30 day visa free I think). You pick up your bags at baggage claim, then go through customs. I don't remember if everyone's bags get scanned or only... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1151862 You sound exactly the type to overtalk. No one wants illegal immigration, so act like the tourist you are without as little detail as possible, not someone would overstay, and there ya go. (Protip, you should have a return ticket, and not be broke. You're staying with a friend, not a girlfriend, because obviously that looks suspicious as shit, you two being committed and all, yet live in different countries.....)
>>1151862 Clearing customs anywhere is a bit of a crap shoot. Unless you either scream "SEARCH MY SHIT I AM AN ONVIOUS SMUGGLER, " --OR -- get randomly selected for a search, you just get waved through. If you get searched, you do not want to be smuggling shit or bringing illegal shit into the country. If you are not, then I just takes 15 minutes or so extra time for them to look through your stuff. (Googleing what is allowed will take you a few minutes.)

So I just booked flights for me an my girlfriend to see Paris. How bad did I fuck up?
For the record we both went to India/Nepal last year (and enjoyed it) so we're not super sensitive to a little bit of hassle. But is it really a city full of gypsy pick pockets and brown people? The architecture and food is still nice right?
rent a bike ride to wreck beach, third beach, jericho beach- take the sea wall. hike the baden powell, eagle bluffs, the chief check out some nearby towns like deep cove and white rock party wherever you want man there's bars everywhere but the best are just all-day beach parties at wreck or third getting a bike makes it a lot of fun though avoid granville street
If it's a full two weeks, I'd recommend going to at least one nearby place. Whistler has a lot of partying during summer. Gulf Islands are really nice this time of year. Victoria is a long day trip, or a easy overnight.
What is the artistic hub of Paris? The place where struggling artists and writers live and work and meet? I'm moving to the 5th Arrondissement for 6 months to work on my novel and I'd love to meet other like-minded people there.
>>1151332 Shakespeare & Co. is still alive and kicking, as your choice of arrondissement suggests you already know, although it's a bit more commercial and less communitarian than it was in the 60s, per my beatnik aunt who slept there for a while fifty years ago. Still hosts many good readings and gatherings for expat writers and pretentious bohos of various stripes.
Lots of artists in and around Montmartre, too, but it's crazy expensive.
Hello there, first time poster on /trv/. I'm going to visit England, specifically Bristol. Are there any interesting places for sightseeing, bars, cheap but good restaurants? I'm a student, so I won't have a huge amount of money when I get there, so try to think of more..cheaper options, thanks! BTW: do you have any tips on how to get from London to Bristol? The train is pretty expensive, is coach the way to do it?
The Megabus is usually much cheaper, with fares going as low as a few pounds if you book a few weeks in advance. Their adverts say they go as low as 50p, but I've never seen that in real life, but who knows you may get lucky. I've taken it a couple of times before and it's not really that much worse than a train, but a bit slower.
>>1151270 100% what that guy said, much cheaper than trains in this country.
Sightseeing on a budget? The Bristol museum and gallery is free and is pretty good for a wide range of interests, otherwise check out "Mshed" which is a museum of just bristol history and is also free.
Obviously go check out the suspension bridge, its free, pretty impressive and has awesome views over the Avon gorge and Liegh woods.

For the most part, I have some places planned out to visit, some places to eat and some neighborhoods to avoid, buy can anyone that lives or has travelled there, give me any additional advice or places I should see?
>>1150829 Avoiding neighborhoods is a meme. You aren't gonna get shot just by going into homewood or the hill, and those places are pretty interesting. Ride an incline, look at the view from mount Washington, eat at primanti brothers, check out some of the neighborhoods. I would suggest Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, and Oakland.

Lived there for 3 years. I would say: Les Arenes rooftop La Rambla and the Boqueria's market. La Pedrera Parc Güell Carmel's bunkers Diamant's square and the nearby streets And then you have all the obvious attractions like Sagrada Familia and so on... I guess it depends on what kind of things are you most interested in. Feel free to ask.
