I just uploaded a GoPro montage.
Just trying to get it some views :)
Not trying to spam but I really do think it has some quality footage. You might like it. Show it some love.

Also, this is the "travel" thread.

It was filmed in:
Turks and Caicos
Puerto Rico
St. Maarten
St. Kitts

Feel free to share ;)

You ever travel with your dog /trv/?
I'm wanting to spend about a month to two months in one location (maybe vancouver), and I want to take my dog with me. i'm not sure how to work it out.

I board them in a kennel when I travel.

Honestly, having pets isn't a great idea if you like to travel. It's expensive to house them and it's not very fair to your beloved pet.

Pets are good to have when you're just starting a family and are planning on basically staying near your home for the next 10 years.

However, there's plenty of hotels around the country/world that allow pets. You just have to do a lot of research ahead of time.
Moving around with animals can be hell.

A lot of regulation that change from country to country, some even have forced quarantine time of 14 days up to 3 months, other force you to fill out a shitload of paperwork, need of a special insurance for the time your pet is in the country etc...

Unless you're traveling with a service animal or it's a invitational sport competition (show jumping, dog agility, polo...) where you get special permissions it really sucks.
A dog that goes under the seat in front of you in the cabin is one thing (less than 20lbs). Checking a dog is russian roulette with their life. Even the most frequent flier dogs (show dogs) are hurt, lost and killed far more than you'd know. Airlines don't advertise that, because it wouldn't make sense to talk about it. If you can declare your dog a "therapy" or guide dog officially, you can buy them a seat in the cabin. Could have some other special exceptions crossing borders with this type...

78 KB,
I am going to be visiting the Philippines in 10 days for 2 weeks and am looking for general ideas of what to do. I've looked up touristy things on various websites and so far think I will visit The Banaue Rice Terraces, go diving and to the beaches in Palawan, and possibly seeing the Chocolate Hills in Bohol. Some questions:
Should I even bother with Manila?
Any other places of interest?
Will I get by speaking English?
Good places to stay?
Any other advice?

IMHO Manila is not worth it unless you are into decadent shitholes (I actually am into shitty megalopolis so I kinda enjoyed it) then Cordillera (banaue, batad and sagada) and Palawan are musts. I didn't enjoy Bohol and I think in two weeks you should focus on the other two areas. Only if it matches your itinerary you can visit the things in Bohol but they might disappoint you
If you have the time to get away a bit, go to Boracay. Absolutely great gem of a beach.
For diving the visayas are way better then palawan. Bohol has amazing diving in the south. In the north of cebu island there is a island called malapascua island. It's hard to reach but the thresher sharks are definitely worth it.

Probably won't be able to find any information if you think it's in any way historical. Looks like a contemporary take on the traditional woodblock style.
It's a modern imitation of Yamato-e.

The only places in Canada ever worth visiting are the areas within an hour or two of the USA border.
Depends what is "interesting" for you.

Anyone ridden it before? I've always wanted to go from one end to the other.

How is the opinion of tourists on it? Is it difficult to navigate without speaking a lick of russian or chinese?

and how about the visa system? i have heard you would need a visa in one or more of the countries to full-ride it, but do you REALLY?

Locals will see you as a oddity, but there's tourists on every train now. They ride the train for a few stops because they can't fly to where they want to go. They don't see why someone would want to do it.

If you're traveling by yourself, it's difficult without any Russian. Try riding Amtrak only speaking Russian, see how far it gets you.

You need a visa. It's an extra cost to going to Russia, but unless you're interested in people smuggling you need a visa.

Try riding a train closer to where you are first, see if you...

How cool is it to go along the railway but not in a straight shot? Many stops and detours along the way. I'm planning on doing this this summer, but I'm not sure what I'm doing yet. I study Russian btw

what's wrong with aeroflot?
Their prices are great, but their service falls flot.
i dont understand why people care how bad the service is...
at least it's not domestic air china.
the seats still have ashtrays and the plane rattles and flexes in slight turbulence. All you really need is a seat and a functioning bathroom.
Im pretty sure they give you free booze on board. i could be wrong.

Hey /trv/, I have a flight to Bangkok on January 5th. I will be in Thailand (mostly north), Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China. I plan to spend about a month in each, maybe less for Laos and Cambodia. The flight back to my home country is on May 24th.

1. I read in travelfish.org that lonely planet's regional guides are "hardly worth using" compared to country-specific books. Should I leave my new copy of "vietnam cambodia laos & northern thailand travel guide" at home and buy a 2nd hand copy of each country's guide when I enter it?

2. I plan to buy sandals in Bangkok (Something lighter and more suitable than my hiking boots for everyday non-trekking activities). Travelfish recommended Teva's brand. What are your opinions? And where should I buy it?

3. I've been told I don't need to buy a new camera since Iphone 4s's one is good enough. Is it true?

Thanks a lot!

Only worry I'd have for using you phone for pictures is that you migjt not be able to have it juiced up on power when you need to take your great scenic pictures, where a camera doesn't dies out of battery in the same way.
>Iphone 4s
If you had an android, you could just pack some spare batteries.

A battery pack for an iphone is bulky but probably a sound investment. Also get the extended battery case as well, couldn't hurt.
Thanks guys. Any insights about the first two questions?

Also: any ideas for where to see local music/culture in SE Asia? Authentic stuff I mean, and without it being in an expensive theater or too tourist-oriented.

did you guys ever do some backpacking in SEA?

if so, i have a few questions for you:

1) is it possible to reach the interesting parts of the national parks with public transportation or do you need to have your own vehicle?

2) how to find cheap hostels there? i found some via various apps, but they appeared to be just as expensive as most ones in the western world

3) is it wise to camp outside in the wilderness or sleep on the streets, in case you dont get a hostel in time?

thanks guise

Alright /trv/, so there's an idea going on in the back of my head. I'd really love to travel around the world, but I'm not that rich and I want to save as far as I can and earn money whenever possible.
I'm an amateur astronomer and I know quite a lot about telescopes, so I thought that it'd be a great idea to pack a telescope small enough to fit in my backpack and travel from place to place and show people various objects on the sky and ask for a small, optional donation for it. Basically, I'd explain people stuff about the things they're...

I don't think it would work. Unless you're showing sun spots you're dependent on doing all of your work at night. People are more into food and drink in cities at that time. I guess plazas would be a good place to do this.

I wouldn't give you money to look at your telescope. Where I live there's astronomy clubs that let you do that for free. In most of Europe I'd think it would be the same.

If you're into astronomy take your telescope with you. You could try doing it...

If you do this your telescope is going to get busted or stolen.
Let me get this straight, you are going to pack a portable telescope that is easy to travel with which means shit tier optics. Then you are going to set up in the middle of a city with limited field of view, light pollution, and drink assholes? Then you expect said drink assholes to pay you to look at... What, the moon? Someone undressing on th fifth floor?

75 KB,
So this is a lengthy one, but any help would be great. I'm an illegal immigrant from Honduras living in Texas, brought here at the age of 4(21now) and lived illegally until I received DACA in 2012. All that means is that I'm not going to be deported and can work for a living. SO I look at my situation as a sort of limbo state where I am not a US citizen/Resident, and I am not prepared to live in Honduras because I have no paperwork or knowledge of the history and the entire country in general. I want to leave the US, but where can I go? How could a person in my situation...

The other 200k people on immigrant visas would love an answer too. I wanna go to Scotland and bang all the redhead qt3.14's already.
OP here, do you have DACA too?
Can you obtain a passport from Honduras? This should be possible in the embassy. Then apply for university in a European country where studying is free (Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, etc.). With a student visa you can stay in said country for as long as you study and work too whilst you get a degree. With the degree it should be easier for you to go live places.
