> i'm worried if i got shot by a gun. i heard that LA is quiet dangerous place. should i buy stun gun? Lol where the fuck are you from? I mean the risk is high if you stay in some of the worst parts of the city like the east side but it's not nearly as bad as people say. Also, >I only have 2500$ good luck making it in LA for that amount, you're gonna be living pretty basic. Also LA is overrated as shit.
I'm going to Sarajevo, Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb in 2 weeks and am looking for recommendations on things to do.
I've looked through wikivoyage pages for the aformentioned cities, so I'm looking for things perhaps a bit off the beaten path. Cool hikes, neat areas of town, day trips, good bars, delicious eats, etc.
Also what are the absolute "must see" attractions in these cities?
Sarajevo: Eat cevapi and burek. Drink rakia. Check out the bobsled track and Sarajevo tunnel. Check out Zlatna Ribica Bar. Make friends and go to the hookah bars in Bascarsjia. Drink Bosnian (Turkish) coffee. If you smoke, Drina Special Filters are great.
Mostar: If the train is still running, take the morning one from Sarajevo to Mostar. It's a scenic three hour ride. Go up the sniper tower. Head out of town to Kravice Falls.
Zagreb: Tough one because it's not an obvious place to visit. Last time I was there, I drank with some friends in front... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Tirol is one of the most tourism dependend states in Austria, so they should have considerable stuff to "do". However, it still is mostly winter, and they are just trying to get started with summer tourism and shit like >>1146645
But "classic" hiking, climbing and alpinism is already quite big, and has been so since over 100 years. The German and Austrian Alpine clubs have a considerable infrastructure of huts in the mountains, so you wont need a tent.
But if you cant do such things on your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/, I've always dreamed about doing a Journey to the East. I live in Switzerland and I would often fantasize about traveling (via a road trip, a hitchhiking trip, or a bicycle trip) to the East going either over Former Yugoslavia or over Austria-Hungary-Romania to Istanbul. I figured Istanbul to be my first main goal though I've fantasized to continue up to Japan.
I have travel experience but up until now I've always had a disposable amount of money while traveling. This would be the first time with no money.
If I do travel, I would first... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am going to Prague sometime in late august and my plan is to spend about a week there and then head to the nearby cities. Mostly by bus or other cheap transport. The problem is that I've got no idea where to head from there. I've thought of heading east to Poland or head south towards Wien and maybe Ljublana. Nevertheless I know basicly nothing about these cities.
Time is very flexible. I'd be traveling as long as i feel like but I'm thinking of something like 3 weeks which of 1 week in Prague and then head back home to Finland. I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1146474 No experience with Hostel One, but there is a hostel in Holešovice, about 100m from the Metro station which caught my eye. I'm Czech, but I keep an eye out for this sort of stuff. I can find the name, if you want.
Prague one is a seriously historical place, in daytime, getting lost in the small streets around the Staroměstská station is seriously a good thing. The Staroměstská is a stone's throw away from the Faculty of Arts, nice building, also, if you can, head to Hany Bany. Weed is about 200CZK... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
La Paz was pretty crappy. Nice views on the bus ride in, but we got outta there ASAP. Would recommend Sucre, pretty colonial town with the best fresh juice and salad bar ever.
Be very careful with food and drink. Both my friend and I got food poisoning in Bolivia. Almost everyone at out hostel and everyone on the Salar de Uyuni tour also managed to get ill once they hit Bolivia.
If you're doing the Salar de Uyuni tour, find a cheap operator. We went with red planet expeditions which were great but incredibly overpriced.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1147327 I would be very careful in La Paz. It is noticeably rough and impoverished. Lots of begging compared to the surrounding countries and I had an incident with an aggresive beggar in Sucre.
I had none of my things stolen when I was there, but again, my friend was pickpocketed. We never explored during the night and don't drink/go clubbing but she was still victim. Happened in broad daylight. I'd say just be a little more vigilant: keep your cards separate from your wallet, keep the bulk of your cash in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey I'm going to Rome for a week, and I need some advice: 1.Where better to live : in the hostel or in a room of airbnb? The price is the same, but I do not know where to get more good impressions And if airbnb, in which area to live better: San Lorenzo or Pigneto or San Giovanni or Trieste or Nomentana? I'm more interested in history and art, but would like to have a drink
2. What places I definitely should visit? Monuments? Museums? A cafe? And the average score in the cafe?
3. I love second hand, you can advise good in Rome?
Sorry... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1146389 >What places I definitely should visit? What sort of things interest you? The Vatican museum is amazing, consider paying extra for a night tour, it is WAY less crowded and much more enjoyable. If it interests you at all, Hadrian's "villa" is a short trip out of town and I enjoyed it very much -- if you are not into Roman history, though, I guess it would just be another ruin... but if you know what you are looking at, it is well worth a visit.
>>1146245 You very much could, depending on the time and country. Sure, good luck leaving at all during the Stalin era, but by the 70s here travel to other commie states was relatively easy and by the mid-late 80s getting a passport for western countries wasn't that much of an issue. Smuggling and selling shit like a medieval merchant was very profitable and fairly common.
ATL Touristy things include: GA aquarium, World of Coke, Zoo, college football hall of fame, and we have a botanical garden which is nice i guess. Avoid underground ATL as it's sketch. If you're going through on a weekend, I'd check Piedmont Park to see if there are any festivals going on. Outside of that, if you're looking for night life, Buckhead (frat vibe), Edgewood (hipster and a ghetto vibe), Virginia Highlands (a bit chiller and older scene).
Most memorable thing you can do in ATL is to hit up Clairmont Lounge. I think Anthony bordain... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1146046 Depends where you go. I'm British but have felt comfortable everywhere in Western Europe I've been and experienced absolutely no culture shock at all when I went to New Zealand since their culture is very similar to the UK albeit more laid back and less conservative. However, for obvious reasons I had huge culture shock going to China but I also experienced it significantly in America even though we share a language. Mainly because everyone I met there seemed so alien and convinced of themselves and their country, they weren't self-deprecating at all.
Hey /trv/, I plan to visit Mexico next year (probably in March) and I was wondering how safe or unsafe it'd really be to visit Ciudad Juarez for a day or two, and what's the situation there for tourists in general. I'd really love to hear your opinion. I got to add that i'm german and do not speak a word of spanish, my travel partner speaks a little spanish.
>>1146045 Juarez is pretty dangerous, though not as much as it was some 5 years ago, it's ugly, it's scorching hot during the summer, it's freezing during winter, why would you ever choose to go there?
Hey guys, I'm traveling abroad for a while and I want to take a bunch of data with me (carry on). However, some of the data I'll take is pornographic in nature and I'm concerned because I'm connecting flights in Istanbul.
Should I be concerned? Do I have to go through security again when changing planes? Am I going to be subjected to their laws if I'm not even leaving the airport post-check in lobbies?
Hello /trv/ I am a 26 year old Greek/Canadian thinking about moving to Tallinn. I am looking for information on how to find a place to rent and in general how to find my way in Tallinn. If there is anyone from Estonia that could help, I would appreciate it.
Hey /trv/! I'll be traveling to Munich from August 13 to 19. Any tips or where to go? I'll be going with my girlfriend, so I am accepting stuff to do solo or as a couple. I spent some days in Berlin earlier this summer, should I expect a lot of differences? Thanks in advance.
Coming august I'm doing a 16 day trip with two friends. We're starting in Dubrovnik, heading south through Montenegro to Albania and fly back from Dubrovnik. We wanted to do the whole trip with public transport. However, in Albania this seems almost impossible to arrange beforehand and trips of only 650km would take up to 20 hours. Our itinerary is as follows:
9 Dubrovnik 10 Dubrovnik 11 Dubrovnik --> Dhermi 12 Dhermi 13 Dhermi 14 Dhermi 15 Dhermi 16 Dhermi --> Sarande 17 Sarande 18 Sarande 19 Sarande 20... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1144805 Hey, I came back 3 weeks ago in that exact area.
Dubrovnik is fucking shit. Skip it entirely or spend one single day there and do the walls. People are looking to squeeze you dry and everything is damn expensive for a shit city. I would definitely put Kotor somewhere in your itinerary, its amazing.
Albania is fun in a wacky way. Nobody speaks English, so prepare to use sign language. Oh and forget about booking anything in advance, everything you just need to pay for on the bus. I would probably ditch... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
We fly to and from Dubrovnik because the tickets were the cheapest option.. We want to get to the south of Albania as cheap as possible but we can't find anything about public transport in Albania. I found some travel agencies which offer transfers, but these are still pretty expensive. We don't necessarily want to book in advance, but we also don't want to spend an entire day going from travel agency to travel agency to bus station etc...
Not sure if this is the right board to post this but anyway. So I'm about to move to study in Germany (from Bulgaria) and I'm looking to find a place to live. I'd be grateful if someone told which are some trustworthy sites where I can find something cheap(WG or not, it doesn't matter). Im looking for someting in Munich, Karlsruhe, Aachen or Dortmund.
Not OP but in similar situation (bumping for interest). I am still waiting on my state health insurance to supply my my insurance number. It has been 2 weeks and several follow up emails latter. Does anyone here have experience dealing with german health insurers?
>>1144467 wg-gesucht.de is were you will find a WG, all other sites are way smaller immobilienscout24.de is the biggest site for single apartments like 1-room if you exclude ebay were you might also look or look on facebook if there is a student housing group (just look for WG+city you wanna go)
>>1144479 call them and if something went wrong try another one. getting no replies from a health insurance is strange, at least as a native.
I'm going to Greece from 23 august - 4th of september, so right now I'm looking at things to do and places to stay. My question is, could it just be me or is there a huge circlejerk around travelling? Looking at travel blogs every attraction is recommended and every city is great, everyone left their cushy corporate jobs to travel the world, etc, so I'm having a bit of cognitive dissonance because a lot of things that people cream themselves over don't seem really exciting to me.
Also, recommendations for things to do in Greece? I don't really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This is what I'm talking about: >“A great way to get to know Thessaloniki is to do nothing to ‘explore’ her, but instead just ‘be’ there. Just relax,” advises writer Rika Z.

If you pause to linger and listen you will hear the city speak volumes, Rika notes in “The art of doing nothing,” the magazine’s introductory article. “Some of the things she will say, or show to you, will remain in your memory for a long, long time.

>>1143869 There's a craft brewery in Laurel, MS that gives fun tours and has great beer, and there's pretty good restaurants nearby in Laurel, Meridian, and Hattiesburg. A good art museum in Laurel too. If you like beaches, the Mississippi Gulf Coast is going to dissapoint you - muddy/murky water and litter on the beach. It's the only beach I've been to in my life and I love it, but every friend I've made from the East/West coast have said it sucks. The Gulf Coast itself is pretty good, though. Tons...

Hi /trv, I am someone in mid 30s but have not traveled often. I hope to do so now, please recommend me must have apps that I can use when at overseas. I plan to to backpacking, so it would involve more effort and things can get easily overwhelmed due to information overload, hence need your help. Thanks in advance.
free guided tour of Israel. Pick a more secular trip organizer and you'll be fine. It's pretty tiring though, when I did it we would wake up at 630 everyday, tour until 7 or 8 at night at least, have a bit of free time before sleeping and going again. Very little time to chill or explore on your own. Still, it's a free trip to Israel.
pro-tip: book a flight to europe or somewhere else for when the trip is finished, Birthright will pay for your return ticket so if you make it through the initial tour you can go travel independently and still have a free... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1141348 >What's your guys opinions on prostitution? I favor legalization, mostly because I think it's safer for the women (and men) who sell sex for a living. I don't think it's inherently immoral, either for providers or consumers.
I also don't like paid sex, at all--I find the scene depressing and don't get excited by sex with people who aren't enjoying it.

I'm halfway through a solo jaunt in Central Portugal (currently in Óbidos) and I've generally been having a blast but I'm not sure if I'm missing out on certain things because of my ignorance and shyness. Instead of staying in hostels, I oped for hotels/a VRBO apartment. I have local friends, but we can't hang out as much as we'd like because they have lives too (couldn't stay with them either as we're all young university students and their parents wouldn't been keen on some foreigner from...

That I should try to see less in the time I've allocated myself. Two, sometimes even three days per city is not enough, and hiking for less than three days straight sometimes seeems like a loss of time to me, whereas a week seems like heaven on earth.
If that truly makes you happy then keep doing it. We are all raised and conditioned by our own social and cultural surroundings. Some people want to explore beyond there own boundaries. Some people want to explore themselves.
>>1147505 Because I am not a faggot loser who thinks staying home is the best thing ever and traveling does beat staying at home because staying home being on 4chan is for people that should kill themselves
Where in Taipei are you? The metro is super convenient to get anywhere really. If you're an /out/doors person hit up the hiking spots at 陽明山 (Yangmingshan), 象山 (Elephant Mountain), and 皇帝殿 (Emperor's Hall or something). Nightlife, shopping, and food are all good to explore as well; there's a lot to do in Taipei. How long are you there for?
>>1147522 A year, to learn the language. I'm staying in the Jingan MRT area at the moment. I'll look up those spots; I won't have much to do after I get my gm membership/sim card/ bank account settled.
>>1147532 That's awesome man, I would also recommend taking the HSR down to other cities like Tainan, Taichung, and Kaohsiung if you ever get bored of Taipei. Tickets are around 1000NTD which is a little over 30USD.
>>1147397 On top of decent wages and paid holidays, travelling is heavily engrained in our culture. It's simply part of our lifestyle, because we're raised to be adventurous and with the idea that "you need to see the world" if that makes sense.
