I was planning for this summer to make a trip in there but since there has been in the last months an escalation of violence between the PKK and the turkish army I'm starting to think it's not a so great idea Anyone has been there? is it really "so dangerous"? is it worth?
Why the fuck? I usually don't like when people tell people not to go South America, the Middle East, Africa, etc because of "violence" but my understanding is that Kurdistan is literally a warzone right now. What possible enjoyment could you get as a tourist? Might as well go to Aleppo or some shit right now
I am visitng South Lake Tahoe for snowboard in 3 weeks. As I am from Europe I have no idea how skipasses work there. My friend just got back from there saying that she had to pay 250$/day, that just sounds riddiculous! Whole process seems just way more complicated than in Europe.
Can anyone tell me how to do it efficiently? Thanks for all your help!
St P and Moscow are ok, but that's it. Lots of Russia is very dull, and hardly exciting stuff. If you're a Slav-boo I can recommend the Baltics and eastern Europe in general, but unless there's anything especially about Russia, I don't hugely endorse it. t. been to russia twice
I'm going to Japan again for 12 days. From there, I'm in a situation - I want to go to either Austria or Switzerland for 10 days. From all the reviews and recommendations I have read, they are basically on par with each other - Switzerland being more expensive but beautiful, and Austria cheaper and friendlier to tourists.
Which nation would you recommend I try out (for a first time Europe visitor), and what do you recommend I do in said nation?
Hey guys, doing this trip in August, flying into LA and driving round. Planning on doing the usual touristy stuff (Hollywood, Universal Studios, gambling in Vegas, San Diego Zoo) but does anyone have any recommendations for anything that may be a bit less known?
Personally, I'd skip San Diego & Palm Springs (although if you stick with Palm Springs you should visit Joshua Tree NP nearby). I'd use the extra time to go up to Lassen NP in northern California. If you go to Death Valley, be prepared for extreme, extreme heat -- carry plenty of water and make sure your car is in good shape.
yosemite's gonna be hot as fuck, too, but not absolute death like those two. if you're planning on camping in yosemite expect to get your reservations in 6 months early, or be prepared to camp 40-60 minutes outside the park.
Spontaneous trip time!!! Alright guys I was just sitting here and suddenly I said fuck it and decided to start planning a spontaneous trip. I need your help for suggestions and planning. First a little background info: I’m a 25 year old American Male based in Italy. Really open-minded, like trying new things, open for anything really, not a picky person, adapts well, loves food, cultures, chatting with people, meeting new people, getting to know new places, exploring the world, learning from people, having fun and relaxing. Here’s my idea so far: I’ve been to Denmark... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
CONTINUED: So I’m a bit confused and clueless on how many days I should spend in each place. I am traveling on a tight budget (Scandinavia is very expensive from what I hear) and I plan to do Couchsurfing the whole time, so I must keep that in mind when choosing which places to go to. I prefer to avoid museums because they eat up a lot of time and cash. I prefer to get out there meet locals really get a feel the place, its people and culture. I’d rather spend my money on food then museums, but if there’s a must do or must see things, then I’ll consider it. So what do... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm from Sweden and I can honest to god not say what people are looking for here, but if you like our culture, go ahead.
I haven't been much in Norway so I can't comment on that, but you will not need much more time than you have planned out for Sweden. I will say that you need to go to museaums, many of them are subsidized by the state and thus aren't that expensive to visit.
Connecting with locals could be hard. As you may already know, swedes and scandinavians in general are notoriously bad at socializing with strangers and hard to reach.
>>1066082 How many days should I stay in Stockholm and Gothenburg? I'm think of allocating 10 days in Sweden, can add a few more if needed. What museum do you recommend or what do you recommend doing in Stockholm? I know Scandinavians can be hard to break, but I'm a really easy going guy and I'm good at making people feel comfortable, so I'm sure I'll manage something. Also I will do Couchsurfing, so I'll try to get in touch with a few locals at least. And like most people around the world, give them a few drinks and they open. When I was in Finland it was the same thing. Hard to get people to open up, but once they did everything was fine.
Going to be visiting family in Poland this summer. I plan on being with family for about a week and then dedicating the rest of my trip to visiting Budapest, Prague and Vienna. I've never visited any European cities besides Krakow so doen't really know what to expect. How many days should I dedicate to spend in each city. How much should I be looking to spend for transport? Any recommendations for good spots to visit?
>>1065966 Been to Prague and Vienna. I'd say around 5 days for each city would be a good amount. I think Budapest is more of a 3 day city but I haven't been yet.
From Poland to Prague take Polskibus. You can get really cheap fares. I took it from Prague to Wroclaw for something like 20zl. From Prague to Vienna and then to Budapest just take trains. They're all fairly cheap.
>good spots to visit Uhh, there's a ton in each city. Just look up on wikivoyage on what... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Budapest needs more than Prague i'd say, went to both of them last year, 5 days in Prague was fine and 7 days in Budapest didn't feel like enough. also visited Vienna for a day and i wish i'd had like 3-4
>>1066003 >Been to Prague and Vienna. I'd say around 5 days for each city would be a good amount. I think Budapest is more of a 3 day city but I haven't been yet
what makes you say that Budapest is a 3 day city if you haven't even been there yet?
OP, I'd say spend 3 days in Vienna, 3 or 4 days in Prague, then the rest of your vacation in Budapest. 3 days is just a really short time for a city so lively, so diverse (not in people but in atmosphere, architecture,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Most of you will have heard of "Paris Syndrome" where Japanese tourists in Paris have a mental breakdown when they realize that the reality of the city doesn't match the idealized fantasy in their heads. I think the media is primarily to blame for this. Paris is always portrayed as a sophisticated culture capital where beautiful models sip wine by the banks of the Seine in between shopping sprees in Louis Vuitton, with views of the Eiffel tower in the background.
What I want to know is what exactly is it about Paris that triggers such an extreme reaction... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Because for whatever reason a lot of Japanese people are Frenchaboos. The same thing happens to tons weebs that go to Japan. It's not as common with other countries because there's no other bizarrely common belief that one developed area is a fantasy-land compared to their homeland like Japan--->France and White people land---->Japan.
The same thing happens to tons of weebs that go to Japan, it's why you can find pages and pages of people screaming about micro-aggressions and racism among other people claiming "this was more fun than I thought... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1065965 >there's no "white-jin-ron" Actually let me rephrase this: There is, but most of the time it's built on racist overtones so most people don't take it seriously. Also google nihonjinron if you don't know what I'm talking about (though I'm sure if you're asking about paris syndrome you must already know)
Hello /trv/ I'm planning a short trip to Reykjavík this August in celebration of graduating University. As I'll be going there alone, I was wondering if any of you knew of websites where I can talk to people who live there already, and potentially meet up with them. Any other general suggestions on what to do whilst there would also be appreciated.
