I live in Cambridge.

Peterborough has a massive amount of Eastern European pussy. I think either that or Boston are tied as the highest percentage of Eastern European immigrants (Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian) in the UK.

Hit on them, they are hotter, trust me.
Run, run... U.K. is a trap. Go to ....?..
cheap countres... Where plp r nice. Spain... Philiphines... Thailand... Poland... or ? Venezuela
Pretty crazy dude as I live in rushden.
Never thought I'd see the town "wellingborough" pop up on /trv/
Rushden is about 4 miles away when traveling into London of get a bus to Bedford and then catch the train to London as it's so much cheaper fare. Also check out irchester country park in the village/town of irchester it's only a few miles from wellingborough
Happy /trv/ling

Pho for breakfast at Cai Rang floating market
by the time the meal is ready, i can't think of taking photos anymore... this is the closest probably, it's only the rice and the marinated meat missing, the sides are almost all set. busan, the restaurant where we saw most locals go in. no fish there.

the best food pics on my phone are wechat uploads from random nanning kids in china. they upload all these chickens beheaded in dusty backyards all the time, gotta love them.

This is a photo of a Torta Guacamaya.

Tortas are just sandwiches made in Mexico. I had them all over the place. I've seen a few different versions but the one with roasted pork meat was probably most common. They were all awesome. Until I made it to Guanajuato and tried this one. This one wasn't just awesome, it was one of the best things I've ever eaten.

First of all, they person just made a regular sandwich with some roasted pork head meat. Lots of fatty bits in there. Then they started putting in pieces of chicharron in there. They just kept stuffing...

I don't think there's anything really special about Warsaw. The only reason I would come here specifically is if you're interested in WW2 stuff. Old town isn't that great compared to Krakow, downtown Warsaw is depressing and gray in the Winter.
Some parts of Warsaw are nice and interesting to walk in and enjoy the architecture, albeit I wouldn't really...

I'm gonna second the vote for Krakow, the most underrated city in Europe in my opinion.
I lived in Warsaw for six months, though I am not Polish.

If you are coming to Poland for fun, I strongly recommend going to Wroclaw (my fave), Krakow or Gdansk instead of Warsaw.

During summer even Warsaw is okay, but winter is pretty brutal there or I guess everywhere in Poland. Weather changes can be insane when Spring rolls along.

To me Warsaw is just a big city. I didn't feel it has a soul and specific atmosphere like Krakow for instance. It's quite crowded, hecktic and folks are running around busy just like in other metropolises.

What might shock you the most (and not in a good way) is the sheer amount of poverty, homelessness, and crime. San Francisco is the homeless illegal immigrant crime capitol of the world. That said there is still a lot of fun to be had in SF, plenty of things to do.
Be prepared to casually see some fags walking their boyfriends on leashes wearing leather chaps and ball gags on your way to work.

hey /trv/ my gf and I want to travel to Amsterdam next week and we're looking for a cheap housing. As i expected, this wouldn't be available in Amsterdam but airbnb gives out some neat looking places in "zaandam", which looks quite near to Amsterdam.

My questions are:
How are the landscapes around Zaandam? Could we catch some beautiful sights bicycling to Amsterdam?
How far is it actually away from Amsterdam?
What would it cost riding from there to Amsterdam and back with public transport for 5 days?
6 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
Use 9292.nl for planning all public transport in the entire country. Don't know about the site but the app has an English option. Zaandam to Amsterdam Central station is 2,70 euro one way. To Leidseplein also 2,70.
Amsterdam is a zoo with drugs and prostitutes. If the landscape and other tame stuff are what you're after, you might as well just stay somewhere relatively far away from Amsterdam and then just spend ~1.5 hours going there by train to check out the museums and stuff. Personally, I wouldn't spend more than 2 days in Amsterdam anyway since the city really isn't that big.
If you're not Dutch or Nordic, you won't want to bike next week here. The wind is no joke.

Zaanse Schans is something people take the bus to from Amsterdam, and is nice by bike if there's no wind. Windmills and stuff.

That green building is basically the only interesting looking one in Zaandam besides Zaanse Schans. I warned you. Amsterdammers go there for like... Primark.
It is definitely doable riding the train every day to Amsterdam, if you don't mind the extra time and blandness.

I have a question regarding US visas. I have a criminal record for getting caught with weed, which violates my right to the visa waiver programme. According to visa rules I'd have to schedule an interview with the US embassy to apply for a visa, which in itself isn't much of a problem. The problem is that since I got my criminal record, I've been gambling and visited the US twice without getting rejected at the customs and immigration.

If i were to schedule an interview, could they reject me a visa on the basis that I've already cheated the rules twice?...

Gambling as in taking a general risk, not necessarily with money.
Whilst I can't say conclusively what would happen, I would just enter the US again and hope for the best. Yes, America is the only country fucked up enough to scan other country's criminal files, but there's no way theyd do an international criminal record check for every single entrant.
Sounds good, though I'm way more inclined to apply for a visa properly. I'm in some sort of a catch-22, what ever I do I run the risk of getting barred from entering the US ever again.

I've never been on a long distance Amtrak but I'm posting because I'm hoping to go on the California Zephyr this summer and wondering if /trv/ had any advice as well.
I have heard though that Amtrak in the south is pretty boring in terms of scenery.
Just fly you fedora toting faggot.

Amtrak is expensive, slow, and pointless. You're not going to be sitting there reading the paper and smoking a pipe like weird fantasy you've undoubtedly built up in your head. You're going to be watching hours of fields and swamps go by while you tap at your phone.
Gas is cheap as hell. Just drive. Honestly, who takes the train in America?

Universal Studios and Disney World installed metal detectors for "safety" reasons.
Only problem? You have dozens, if not hundreds of people lined up to go through the detectors at a time, in a small bottle necked area. Hopefully anyone who plans on shooting up an amusement park will want to only shoot people INSIDE the park and not be content shooting all of the unarmed tourists stuck outside the park, waiting to get in.

I know this is just 'pretend to be jihadi' trolling, but I have, believe it or not, actually visited Grozny. It's more normal than you probably expect. Small post-Soviet (ie, slightly dismal) city, with an atypically gleaming, newly constructed center (since the original city center was, of course razed). Apart from that and a couple of prominent mosques, it doesn't look much different than other minor provincial centers in greater Russia. There is very little visible evidence of support for the...
