On a main street south of these you can a place where you can go down to a cistern that was used by the Greeks/Romans to hold water. Turks don't use it cause Islam says non-running water is unclean. There's an Archaeological History Museum nearby I think, but I'm not sure

You find a restaurant/club with an event that looks good for you, whether a rooftop view, or great prix fixe menu for the night, pay now for the RSVP. The last Sunday paper would have been a good place to sort that out with ads for their night. Maybe you can google within the papers now or visit a restaurant page for info.

It's Orlando, so every place you go that is worth a damn will have at least a few tourists. It's unavoidable.
In terms of theme parks, there is one somewhat relevant small park named Fun Spot America. It has two locations: Kissimmee (south of Orlando) and International Drive (in Orlando across the freeway from Universal). Go to the I-Drive one. Up until a few years ago it was a standard arcade/go-kart place, but it recently expanded to have actual rides, including two decent mid-sized roller coasters. Their wooden one is the only one of its kind in town.

It depends where you're coming from. I would say something like Spain, but it's because I don't live in a country that's warm and has palm trees. If you're coming from somewhere like Mexico, then it might not be as cool as seeing something else. Generally if you're coming from outside of Europe and already paying for the expensive plane ticket then it's dumb to just stay in one European country, moving around in the EU is cheap and easy.
>>1064272 >It depends where you're coming from. This.
And, by coming from, everyone means what are you used to? what do you like to do? where else have you been? do you want famous things or emptiness? are you a music or history fan? literary? do you like city life or nature from vacations?
Safetywise, I'd recommend iceland, norway, ireland if you want to rent a car and drive around, and if a woman and relying on public transport, Austria, cause I haven't been since... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /trv/, I've been wondering about something for a while and I decided to come here with my thoughts. I've met tons of wonderful people while traveling and I still keep in touch with many of them today. They've offered to host me if I ever came to visit their city and I've offered the same in return. The problem is that most of these people aren't really in places I'm currently interested in visiting. So that got me thinking..
Does anyone know of a service where you can exchange vacations? For example, I'd like to stay with a local... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>From Germany >Interested in visiting South Africa, Northern Africa, most European countries, Australia and New Zealand, Russia
If you're from one of these locations and are interested in visiting Germany I would be glad to host you and show you around as long as you return the favour and host me in your country. I'm also slightly interested in Latin America but it isn't necessarily at the top of my list.
So if you're interested, reply to me and maybe... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064223 Sort of, yes. But I want it to be more than just staying on someone's couch for free. I want to be able to have someone take the time to allow me to divulge in their country. I look at this idea as sort of basically looking for someone to be a travel mate for a certain amount of time in their country.
For example, I own a car and would not mind at all if someone from South Africa wanted to do a small road trip through Germany. We could visit cities or even the mountains in southern Germany. Once that roadtrip... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How do I get the cheapest airline tickets possible?
I'm beginning to plan my big Europe trip (first solo travel) and I want to buy a ticket from sydney sometime around end of march/beginning of april. Thing is, provided it's the cheapest, I'm willing to land anywhere from Moscow to Diyabakir to London. Also, I understand that prices can fluctuate a lot depending on when you buy tickets, is it simply they get more expensive closer to the date, or is there any more to it?
This is sort of an alternative solution but instead of spending x amount of hours trying to find the cheapest flight you can just use skyskanner or some other cheap flight website and use all the time you saved to sell some old junk in your house that you don't need or make money some other way that's within reach for you. The more time you spend trying to save some extra money on airline tickets the less profitable it becomes so don't waste too much time on it, eh.
Cheapest routes in the USA usually involve booking witth a shitty budget airline, like Jet Blue, to a major hub, like JFK(NYC) ), then getting deals/cheap flights out if there. It can suck moving your luggage from one airline to another and it takes more coordination on your part. Skyscanner is the best one stop shop for researching this. Or you just find the cheapest flights out of your country to your destination or close to it, then find cheap tickets to that airport, and cheap tickets from where the plane lands to your final destination (these primary and last leg tickets...

>>1064220 >Also, I understand that prices can fluctuate a lot depending on when you buy tickets, is it simply they get more expensive closer to the date, or is there any more to it? There really arent that many tricks to it. For a random number, let's say there are 13 "cheap" seats on any given flight, and then those fare codes are sold out. The next fare up has 6 seats, and so on, right up to travel day prices. Each airline operates their codes per their wishes. Can be 20 different... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm a EU citizen and I'd like to move to the UK. I've lived in Edinburgh briefly and have visited Glasgow and London, but I don't want to limit my choice to just these cities. Could you guys give me a rundown of each major UK city? ie. London - crowded and expensive, great nightlife, hard to find a job, lots of immigrants etc. Of course if anybody wants to write more than just a sentence it'd appreciate it
I'm 20, turning 21 soon and I'm dropping out of university. I'm not exactly sure what I want to study, I like a lot of things but there's nothing I feel very sure about yet. So my plan is to just live and work in the UK (because it's good money and I like the UK) until I get an idea of what I want to do (or saving up enough money to start up my own business, something I'd like to do eventually). I might end up staying in the UK and just living there permanently.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm a britfag engaged to an American. Looking at all the visas and requirements etc is extremely overwhelming, confusing and depressing. Does anyone have any experience with this? We've mainly been looking at her moving to the uk, but I'm open to look at moving to the US. Whichever way round is easier. We just want to finally live in the same damn country. Which way around is easier (us to uk, uk to us) and which visas are the easiest to do?
Probably would be easier for her to go to UK with you. The immigration act of 1965 closed the door to white euros and swung the door wide open to the third world. If you had been mexican rather than British you would have no problem getting a visa.
>>1064225 >closed the door to white euros and swung the door wide open to the third world. If you had been mexican rather than British you would have no problem getting a visa Yeah, this is what pisses me off he most. It's the same in Britain. Not trying to be /pol/ or anything but they make it hard as fuck for people like my fiancée but some 3rd world shit that can't speak English literally just knocks the door and Britain does everything for them, gives them a place to live, everything hassle free
Hey /trv/ currently making travel plans for summer and could use a bit of help. Don't really have the money to travel overseas this year so I decided to stay in Europe. To make things even cheaper, I figured I'd like to try some long distance walking, for 2-3 weeks maybe 4 if I can stretch it at work. Ideally I'd go in July and/or August after my college exams.
I already had the G20 in Corsica in mind but when I realized that it's mostly just walking through mountainous regions, I kind of didn't like the idea that much. Another thing I was considering... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064210 If you're already an experienced hiker you can go anywhere. Just saying this because when I started out travelling I had this long europe track planned out, but when it hit the fan, I couldn't stand to the hike with my overweight backpack. Went hitchhiking after a week on foot. Now I go everywhere hitchhiking.
Sounds like you've got an awesome summer planned. The G20 is my dream; what's wrong with mountains? You want more culture, evenings in pubs, that sort of thing? I guess I can't recommend anything specific. I've attempted several of the GR trails in southern Europe but they were all so badly marked, it made life hell. And a lot of it was just walking along farm roads and 4x4 tracks, which isn't always nice. Whoever's in charge of the GR trails needs to get their shit together. The only exception was the GR11 which runs along the Spanish... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064529 >>1064529 (You) Another pic from the GR11. Also, there are some great distance hikes in Scotland, but they won't take you more than 2 weeks. Maybe spend one week in Scotland (the West Highland Way takes about six days) then fly somewhere else for a 2 week hike.
As a final suggestion, Morocco is way better than Europe for distance hiking. There are no marked trails, but you can follow donkey paths between villages for weeks, and never have to worry about... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/! I'm going to China in June. I've been to Canada, the UK, and France, but China is a whole different beast. I've got a few questions. Are the pickpockets really as bad as people make them out to be here? How bad is the air quality really? How much money should I bring for a 9 day trip?

February is pretty iffy; you'll need chains on your tires to go on a lot of the Sierra roads. With that said, Yosemite (the main area only, i.e. the Valley) will be open, but I'm not sure how much you can do there as there will be a lot of snow. I suppose a few of the day-tourist bus-tour "trails" will have been plowed out, but these are generally a 10-minute-long "hike" only.
I'd stick to the coast all the way up to SF (and beyond, it's pretty nice). You might want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
