they're only the really really bad in europe, would be perfectly fine for a domestic south sudan flight. not every airline has to be good. if you didn't have bad experiences with them, good for you, keep going. i just had enough of the 6-8 hr delays and waiting in a tent to be carried with a bus to the aircraft to meet the clueless stewards sort of deal.
The most notable things that would interest outsiders would be the beaches (frequently rated best in the continental US) as well as Busch Gardens (theme park with roller coasters) and the Dali Museum (largest private collection of Salvador Dali artwork).
Have you lived in Barcelona? If so, tell me about it.
I just accepted a job offer there, starting in late March. I can speak Spanish well enough, unlike German in my current city of Berlin. Despite the fact that it's of course it's part of Catalonia, I'm kind of pumped up to move to a city where I won't feel like an alien.
How is/was it to live there? How did you find a place to rent? I'm interested in whatever stories you have.
Going to kuala lumpur then singapore on June for 1 week, any ideas for places to go? I'm not the party kind of traveler not really into drinking and stuff, more on scenic shit like, temples, shrines museum, food trips and other shit.
Any travel tips, warnings, suggestions would be appreciated.
If you want to check the Kuala Lumpur skyline out from above, go to the top of the petronas twin towers and not the tower; Since there are two towers its very unique that you get to see the building you are in next to you from the top.
In Singapore i would also recommend going up the marina bay sands at dusk. Its spectacular.
Ony went to the singapore state museum. Pretty interesting exhibition on the history of singapore.
I finally saved up 2 weeks worth of vacation time at work so I'll be traveling for the first time outside the US and Mexico in July 2016. Where should I go?
Originally, my number one destination was New Zealand. Mainly because of all the outdoor activities I hear you can do, for example Zorbing, cave rafting with the glow worms, and bungie jumping. But at the same time I wanted to visit as many places as possible. Aside from New Zealand I wanted to visit areas like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia are next down the list. And eventually Japan and Australia.

>>1064456 Remember the flights are a long time. Then you have the time differences. You will be exhausted when you arrive more likely than not.
>New Zealand and Thailand/Cambodia/Singapore doable in 2 weeks You will get about 2 full days in each country. It would be one of the worst trips I could imagine.
If you only have 2 weeks, I'd recommend picking one country and staying there. In SEA, Singapore doesn't really need more than a few days, so you could go somewhere else... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064456 go NZ and australia and go to different states in Oz, though Im not sure if activities are still available because July will be winter season in Nz and Oz, though skiing and snowboarding will be available.
hmm thats a good point about, not just flight time but the time it takes to get to the airport and waiting/security checks for the actual plane ride and then the time it takes to get to next destination coming out of airport. Yea so definitely not NZ/Australia + SEA.
>>1064477 That is also a good point about being Winter time. If I'm not interested in skiing or snowboarding is it even worth visiting in July for any other activities?

yo trv, I got like six thousand bucks and I just got laid off from my job and also my car just shit the bed. Where the hell should I go? I don't mind living in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-tier conditions, I just wanna get the hell out and go experience something besides the murican bullshit I'm buried in. I'm willing to do basically whatever at this point. Just gimme some food, a bed to sleep on, and some booze and smokes. Also some human interaction might be nice. Also I'm willing to work my ass off to subside, after all I'm not a lazy faggot. What place would be... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064453 If you want to get a job and don't mind settling somewhere a pint of beer costs $9, consider Australia or New Zealand. If you're less than 30 you can go on a 'working holiday' visa. Otherwise, it sounds like you'd enjoy southeast Asia for the social scene.
SoCal fag here. Traveling to Indiana in February, specifically to South Bend (Notre Dame) and might stay in Chicago for a few days. Never been outside of the west coast and sun belt ever before. What's the weather like in the Great Lakes state during February? Do I need to bring parkas and shit, or will a thick sweater do? Also, what should I expect in Indiana?
>>1064425 Indiana sucks generally and Northern Indiana is burnt the fuck out. South Bend is Notre Dame and NOTHING ELSE. Terre Haute is executions and a dot on a map. Gary has industrial history, a HUGE SKY BLUE BUILDING and Michael Jackson. It's feels like coal soot: more than 36 hours would be depressing, especially with Chicago so close and so much similar history all around the Great Lakes. If anything you'll realize how fucked up "Reconstuction" was.
The lakeside marshes and portages offer a lot... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064433 Not OP, but this is actually interesting to some of us. I've done travel to look for fossils and rocks and stuff. Hiddenite, NC has some very unusual minerals that you can only find there, and Utah has some awesome fossils. Herkimer is so cool because the Herkimer crystals form so slowly that they're usually more transparent and double-terminated, and some of them may even have petrol inclusions inside of them.
All up and down the east coast are places to find cool treasures like this. It's a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I saw that there was a tour operator going to Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site as a part of a tour of the former USSR, but it was lumped in with things like old prison camps and monuments. The tour was expensive and lasted about a week.
Is there any tour group that would take me directly there, possibly spend a night, and then head back? I'm short on time and would be fine with no more than 4 days in Kazakhstan.
Has /trv/ been there? I'm thinking of doing a spontaneous trip to Israel in a few days. It's a very unique country so I figure it will be quite an experience to visit it. I'd also like to go to Jordan and visit Petra while I'm at it. Also if possible, take the bus to Cairo and see pyramids and then take the plane home. I wonder if all this is achievable or too dangerous, especially considering the situation in Sinai.
Do you guys have any suggestions or experience advice you'd like share? Still not 100% if I want to go or not.
yes, but not since '96, so not a lot of up-to-date info. haifa was beautiful, as were the golan heights/galilee, diving in eilat was awesome. border with egypt was locked down at that point, no idea now.
All right so I'm looking for cities with a very specific type of climate, and I'm looking with the intent of actually settling down and living there so keep that in mind.
Anyways, the climate I'm looking for is a climate where summers rarely go above 30C (86F) and winters rarely below 20C (68F), although some slight deviation from this would be acceptable. Ideally it should be coastal/by the sea, including islands. Lastly, it should be as dry as possible. The closer to 0mm precipitation per year the better, and the highest I will settle for is 150mm / year.
So in other words, some type of moderately warm coastal dry desert climate with relatively little yearly variation in temperature is what I'm looking for. The Canary Islands fit the bill almost perfectly in terms of temperature, and Antofagasta (Chile) is very much ideal in terms of precipitation, however I don't speak a fucking lick of spanish (Norwegianfag here) but I would be willing to learn it. If it's in the middle east / anywhere muslim don't bother, but beyond that I'm open to pretty much anything (again, I'll be wanting to settle down there, not get beheaded).
If anyone would bother to suggest some cities I would greatly appreciate it.
>>1064372 Here's a pic containing climate data for Antofagasta, Chile. Close to ideal in terms of what I'm looking for although winters could be a bit warmer. Also, not trying to offend anyone, but I've heard Antofagasta is a somewhat gritty-looking city.
>>1064374 I've thought about SoCal and the english-speaking bit is very tempting, in addition to temperature being close to perfect, but I feel like there would be just a little bit too much precipitation for me to accept with LA being at 300-400mm / year, SF at a whopping 600mm / year and San Diego at a more acceptable 250mm / year.
Let me put my situation into context: I grew up on the norwegian west coast, where there's about 3000 - 4000 mm of rain / year, in addition to horrible temperatures at around 0 - 15C year round. I hate the rain so god damn much it literally gives me severe depression and anxiety. The less the better.
That being said, I'm not completely against the idea of San Diego. Do you have any other, drier suggestions? If not, thanks for your reply anyways, really appreciate it.
