I have a seven hour layover in Amsterdam. Anyone familiar with how far the hubs are from the airport? Anything niche that I might miss looking around online (in reference to food, sights, etc.)?

I don't have any interest in legal marijuana.

I literally just came back from a trip with two very long layovers in Schipol Airport.

It's extremely easy to get from the airport to the city center on a very nice and relaxing train ride.

Here's a tip: DON'T PAY FOR THE TRAIN. Literally nobody checks those tickets so it's a total waste of money.
I paid for mine and I regretted it, especially since I ended up hating Amsterdam.

Anyways, seven hours is not too long of a layover, so I would recommend either walking around and going on a canal cruise, or finding just one museum of interest...

I wanted to add that the train station is inside the airport and goes to Amsterdam Centraal station.

So just pay attention to Schipol and Amsterdam Centraal when going back and forth.

Drivers can be fairly reckless. So be extra careful if you rent a car and always assume there's some cretin trying his hardest to crash into you. Still, it's nothing compared to what you'd see further east or outside of Europe.

We will do this in 4 weeks of time. But my question is what is the best way to travel in Tokyo and the rest of Japan? They told me I should buy a JR railpass, especially for the Shinkansen... But is there also something for the subway since our hotel is close to a subway and no JR trains? Or is it cheaper to buy individual tickets for subway and trains? There are so many cards and...

I spent 6 weeks travelling across Japan in 2014, and I found the best (cheapest) way of travelling is by overnight bus, such as Willerexpress. JR Rail passes are also super good (used up to 3 weeks) and are super easy to use. Bullet trains are by far the fastest way of getting around.

However, Hiroshima, Osaka, Kyoto are all easily accessible by simple day buses.

When using the subway, Tokyo is broken down in 2-3 route. One public, two private, so it'll cost you differently dependant on route and locality. But I'm pretty sure that doesnt including JR...

Now here's something i can't stand about Americans.

When an Aussie, Brit, Canadian, ANYONE but Americans asks a question on here, they state what country they're talking about, where they're from, where they're headed.

So is there any really interesting place in Mallorca when it comes to nightlife/partying/bars?

(Or other things to see/do there?)

Or is everything too exploited by middle-aged tourists and families?

My experience from Thailand is though, that even those kinds of places have a quite interesting underground party scene if you know the right people.

Any ideas or experiences?

But! Mallorca is totally awesome for everything else! Just do the following:

- rent a car, they are dirt cheap there, use record go

Main points of travel are landscape and architecture, secondly the experience and people, was told the party scene in Prague is unreal. 4500 is the budget for the whole trip, where 1400 is towards cost of flight, Eurail and passport, leaving 3100 for food and travel fair.

10 hour layover in Kuala Lumpur. Hoping to get into see the towers, eat lunch, and leave.

As far as my research can tell, you can take a train from the airport to KL Central station but theres no train or MRT that'll get you near the towers.

It appears the only viable method is to use a taxi, or am I mistaken? Is there another, easier and cheaper way, to get there? if I have to use a taxi I'll probably just skip the entire thing and chill at the airport.

Also, it would take enough time getting out of the airport, into the city, to the towers,...

You're going to have to take a taxi, and it'll be way more expensive than a taxi in most of Southeast Asia. KL is alright but unfortunately I think it'd be a total waste for you to spend like $30 in transportation alone just to get lunch in the towers

We walked, but fuck its a lot bigger than it looks on a map. Also the roads and footpath system is a bit chaotic and confusing.

My suggestion would be take a taxi to the Chinatown (night) market, have some lunch there, then walk to the towers from there. You get to walk down a number of nice streets and pass the KL tower too.
Kuala Lumpur is an ugly city with shitty weather. Don't go.

What is a "hidden gem"?

Is it supposed to mean some off the beaten path, unheard of place?

I googled some "hidden gems" and it's just people posting what I figured were major tourist destinations like Meteora, Santorini, CInque Terre, Tioman Island, etc.

Most places are documented in one way or another, such as on Wikitravel. So how is any thing or place "hidden"?

That's the whole point of hidden gems, they're hidden and off the beaten path. They stay that way because it's not as easy to find them.
>Hidden Gems
In terms of destinations, mostly places that are less known or visited by your peer group (that can be as small as friends and as large as nationalities or entire continents)

Cinque Terre is a prime example, it's a weekend go to destination for Austrian, French, German and Swiss (to narrow it down: the entire alps and pre alps area) people mostly 25years and up that go there:

What we've established so far is that we will start off in New Orleans, and due to reasons I won't bother listing she would drive towards Nashville from there.

Now comes the question: Where should we go from there?

As for the route to Nashville from New Orleans, I wouldn't suggest driving through Mississippi and Alabama. There is absolutely nothing to see and nothing to do. Since you are from Belgium I would suggest driving over to Pensacola Beach, Florida on your way to Nashville so you can experience the beaches. The sand is pure white and the water is an emerald colour and the area has history dating all the way back to the 1500s...

The closer you are to the Mississippi river, the worse the cities are, as a general rule, but eastern Tennessee and the Appalachians are very beautiful.
If you -have- to go from New Orleans to Nashville, I would recommend taking I-10 to Baton Rouge, and taking the Natchez Trace from there. Decent bit of history, and lots of little things to see and do. Make sure to take a detour to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge if you can. Lots of amusement parks and attractions there.

Your excuse for not crossing properly is paperwork? I don't believe it, and the police won't believe it either once you inevitably get caught. Enjoy your time in whatever fuckmeintheassistani jail you eventually end up in.

>>Any other tips on living a nomadic lifestyle are also welcome.

There's a big difference between traveling frugally and being a skinflint miser.
Fuck's sake OP just get an international drivers license and cross borders at border crossings. You can do whatever Real Traveler (TM) shit you like during the 99% of your trip when you're not with police and customs agents but if you ignore the law for long enough you're going to end up in a third world gulag
It's much easier than you might think. Just use common sense and a dash of creativity.

To follow up on that, my ideal situation would be having a seperate card, where I can log onto my current account online, transfer money into it, without fees or very little. And then once money is on that card, I am able to use that card at ATMs or any stores without receiving a transaction fee. Is there anything that provides this? Or even anything better?
Get a Qantas Cash card, if you're already a Frequent Flyer member all you need to do is go online and request one. I currently have a couple thousand dollars between a few different currencies.
You fucked up man - left it too late.


No fees for foreign exchange or CitiBank fees. Only thing it costs you is the local atm fee. The exchange rate is good too - pretty much identical to XE.com and no account keeping fee. Best option there is. But you won't get approved in time.

Ever since I was a small lad I've had the goal in life to visit every country in the world. How realistic is this how is it really possible?

Every country? Crazy. It's been done, if a lot of countries you only more or less pass through.

A better goal is to visit every country in the world you can name, or in general just countries that are significant in history, culture, population, or in some common meaningful way.

Even so, visiting dozens and dozens of countries is much more realistic if you vagabond it or are wealthy.

I would just take it one trip at a time. They add up over the years.
Many people have done this. One guy is currently attempting to be the first person to visit every country twice. And he's counting all the random-ass places like Pitcairn as countries.
Since most cultures and languages don't adhere to national boundaries, wouldn't it make more sense to draw a grid over all the earth's landmasses, and visit each box in the grid? Makes more sense than saying "I've been to Beijing, I've seen China."

anyone else been traveling for so long you can't relate to your old friends anymore and dont stay anywhere long enough to meet new real friends?

been happening to me. i finished school at 18 and been traveling for the last 4 years. I also earn my living online so i dont make any real life work contacts either. also have mildish social anxiety and struggle to make friends, not just casual chat buddies. kinda taking a toll on me now, decided to move somewhere and actually settle down for a bit now.

It's very common not to associate with your high school friends by the time you're 4 years into adulthood

Looks like you've got that whole thing down, minus the adulthood part
hell then I guess I'm the minority, I'm still friends with all of my close circle of friends from high school. I even rent 2 of my rooms to 2 of them. One moved away for college and were still close to, Skype a good amount of days a week as a group.

I can see how your nomadic life style could cause some strain on friend ships but if you actually wanted to be thier friend you would kept in contact or made an effort to catch up every now and then. If you want to make new friends you need a hobby, it...

Oh god, those feels.

I am going to Paris this Winter to meet up with some good French friends that I met in Berlin 2 years ago. Will the French people get offended if I sometimes refer to them as Frenchies?

Nah, they're all Algerians anyway.
I don't think they will. I wouldn't (Frenchie here). Is that term supposed to be offensive?

Good luck avoiding our current #1 export - terrorists.
No dude.
Sorry it's not funny.

I found out this weekend that a coworker of mine died on her trip. Apparently it was on a jet-ski. They were on 2, one chasing another, my coworker fell off hers and was ran over by the chaser. Not a pretty sight apparently. She was only in her 20s as well which makes it even more sad.

Kinda got me thinking about travel and safety. I had an accident on my trip recently, nothing much happened to me but scared the living shit out of me.

Where is the border between black populations and non-black population ?

Don't tell me a vague answer like the Sahara, it's vast. Tell me where is the border along the Nile River, the Atlantic Coast and through Sahara.
