Britfag here. Thinking about going to Lebanon for a week or two in September. Would anyone recommend it or have experiences to share? Which places should I visit? Not really looking for nightlife, more culture and history.
>>1142630 >Is Lebanon OK to go to? US State Dept warns Americans not to go in very detailed warnings about 15 pages long. Government employees are forbidden from all personal travel. Why would Britain be any different? Well, they aren't. Check out the map that blocks out more than 50% of the metro city area of Beirut for safety reasons related to bombings last month and kidnappings. https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/lebanon
Hey /trv/. Thinking about going to Tallinn in Estonia for some decent parties. I've got some questions about it, and I would appreciate your help. Is it good destination for partying, meeting girls and getting some one night stands? I would like to go with a couple of friends for a New Year's Eve. Of course, we are males.
>>1142572 No, it's just full of Scandinavian and English lads looking for the same thing. The ratio at bars in Old Town and other areas is horribly unbalanced, just tons of fucking dudes everywhere. Go somewhere else.
Been to every continent except Africa. Even the Middle East, Bhutan, Tibet, and some of the 'stan countries. I've backpacked through many countries and it's kind of wearing me out. Next destination is Costa Rica because I just want to lay on the beach and drink.
Been traveling for three months now around Europe and I've been trying to study Arabic. Question is does anyone have experience traveling in any Arabic speaking countries that you think would be the safest right now? I'm planning to go to Morocco next month and will volunteer (work away) at a English school and from there I'll fly to Israel to say hi to some old travel friends. I would like to continue traveling into the Middle East. I am a US citizen so I might just be fucked. Any advice?
Oman is perfect in every way. First-world country, literally zero political instability, incredible nature, decent people, coolest castles you've ever seen, (though not as nice as you'll find in Morocco) Ain't nothing wrong with Jordan either; their tourist industry is somehow holding together even with all the anti-Arab press. I hear Egypt is doable right now, though I can't speak from firsthand experience. Are you learning MSA? Are you planning on picking up Darija once in Morocco?
I'm going to Thailand at the end of the year and I'll be staying there for a week. While I'm there on a tour holiday for 18-30s there'll be likley women in the group and I want to know the best way to get laid without going to prostitutes instead (since there've been crackdowns on places like soapies). I'll be able to stay in my own single room so I won't have to worry about privacy. This will be my first solo holiday so I'd like some pointers. Anyone have experience of scoring with hot chicks on vacation?
>>1142434 This is the way law works in Thailand, in a bar having a beer about 1:55 am, they start lowering the metal doors. I take this as a hint that its closing time, start to go. Mama san comes over, please sit, its okay. They close all the doors. 2:01 hear banging on the door from outside, they start opening the door, a cop is there. They pour him a drink he sits down. Mama-san says, by law all bars must close by 2 am. Law doesn't say when we can open. Lol
>>1142349 >Why are so many of these acts completely unoriginal and downright useless? Supply and demand, I guess. If someone gives them money, they can continue their game of panhandling. No money? Then either they are exhibitionists of a certain type or they are innocuous attention whores who allow your guard to be focused on them and not on the criminals sizing you up. He might even be a dealer, or a lookout of some sort. Think about it.

I have saved up approximately $100k to move. I live on the east coast in a very busy area and want to move somewhere with legal weed and less stress. I am looking at CO, OR, and WA. I am also looking at NV and CA because they will be legal soon.
I want to buy a small house or a trailer. I can do my job on the computer so I do not care about job market. I want to live in a small town or countryside. I do not care about going to the bar or concerts or meeting anyone / having social life, I have been alone my whole life and I am always going to be alone.

>>1142361 Sounds good, I want to avoid the income tax. I like hot weather, not a big fan of snow. Maybe next to the coast there is less snow? Where I live now it is about in the 90's most days, I actually love this weather. I want to keep my cost of living low, real low. I am ok with living in a trailer, or a really small house. I don't plan on having a family and I don't have people over. I don't care how the place looks. I don't care what's nearby, as long as there is a grocery store, that's... Comment too long.

Do you guys watch/make daily vlogs about traveling? I have been watching a lot a casey neistat and have been inspired to try and document some of my travel. I never get out of the house and makeing thees videos has kinda gotten me to be more outdoorsy.
>>1142176 Dang this dude takes so pretty sick photos. I wish I had a pro camera set up or at least a DSLR and a mic. It would make things a lot easier. Right now im recording everything off my phone and editing on a old thinkpad.
I'm planning on visiting Estonia for 2 weeks this upcoming February. My question is how much money would I need? I'm coming from the United States and the majority of my money will be for booze,food and gifts. I will be staying in hostels to make things a bit cheaper. I was wondering if someone could give me a realistic idea of how much this would cost.
As long as you have wheels, there is lots to see and do in Utah. Bryce Canyon is my personal favourite, but Zion, Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonlands are worth a visit also. You can hike the trails, but there is also lots to see that is a 10 minute walk from your car.
>>1141890 >>1141866 I agree with this guy. Most of the stuff you can see from your car, but Arches (pictured) you have to walk / mild hike about 15 minutes if memory serves. Nothing that touristy is very hard though.
I looked pretty much everywhere on Jewgle and can't find reliable information about this. If I have a 9-hour layover in another country (US) that is not my final destination. Is it possible to exit the airport and go throught customs anyway?
Will I need to pickup my luggages after my first flight, to get them re-checked?
My stop is at Houston George Bush aiport for those who are familiar with this airport
Do anyone have tips & tricks for shit-long layovers?
>>1141831 >I looked pretty much everywhere on Jewgle You are on 4chan making jewish jokes? WTF is your damage? That racist hate doesn't belong here in this forum.
As another said, you do retrieve your checked bags upon deplaning, and then go through customs/immigration at your very first stop in the US. What you do from there to leave teh airport is your business. Yes, you are allowed to leave or you wouldn't be allowed to transit here in the first place (visas in order). If... Comment too long.

I believe there are quite a few immigrants from Senegal and other places, as well as some expats living there, and some travellers. What do you want to know? I'm not black, but I can't think of anything specifically you'd have to watch out for.

Hello /trv/, I'm planning a trip to Amsterdam with some friends and I would like to know if there are some good camping sites where we could set our tents. The idea is that we want a cheaper alternative to the Youth Hostel. Don't mind if it's far from Amsterdam, as long as it's connected with a bus or something.
>>1140454 Youth hostels are like 15 euros a night. Camp in the big park in the city if you're that cheap. I'm willing to bet you're a drug tourist and are going to pass out in the fucking street anyway.
Which of the 3 major US carriers do you prefer flying with? I flew first class with United today for the first time and it was an overall excellent experience. Way better than American. I've usually had good experienced with Delta too. What does /trv/ say?
>>1140347 See when you say "way better" in First Class between any of these three carriers I know you haven't done First very often or to too many regions. Your experience will not vary much on these three brands, but rather you'd understand that it is on the route and equipment on your flight. Even your meal service could greatly vary depending which airport you just left. But, these three? Same exact transatlantic or transpacific experiences. Exact. And, your time of day could determine which equipment... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1140347 I usually prefer Delta, best business/ first class of the 3 US airlines and the most punctual, in my opinion. United is decent, though I'm not a fan of the 2-4-2 configuration in some of their business class seats. Really looking forward to the major upgrade they make to their business class product over the next few years. Even though I have a friend who is a travel blogger who loves American Airlines, I avoid them as much as possible. The times I have flown with have been unpleasant and always have to deal with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1140347 I fly United and affiliates more often than the other two, because I live in a United hub city. It is not great, not terrible, like all other major US carriers. I have been impressed with customer service at American. I have found business-class flights on all three (my only first class flights have been on non-US United affiliates) similar enough.
Hoping you guys could clear this up for me. Im a US native that also holds an Irish passport. My dad advised me to exit with the US passport and enter Ireland with the Irish passport, and vice versa. However, I've read Irish citizens need a visa to travel to the US.
So, if I try to exit Ireland at the end of my trip with the Irish passport does that mean they'll ask for a visa? Am I better off just using my US passport the whole trip?
>>1139865 The "visa" you would need to fill out as a person carrying an Irish passport is ESTA...which is not officially a visa, but sort of when you figure you have to pay for it and do something even if it's a minor inconvenience.
If I were you, I would always use your American passport unless you are traveling through Europe or to a country which makes American citizens apply for a visa or pay an entry fee which is not required of Irish citizens (example: Brazil).
Curious about something, maybe you guys can shed some light: does it not raise issues when you do this sort of thing, and now have a passport that, for example, shows you exiting and re-entering EU 20 days later, never having been entered anywhere in between?
I know that used to raise issues with Americans who travelled to Cuba, and had this obvious gap in their passports where they went to Mexico, exited Mexico, re-entered Mexico but had no stamps showing for that time in Cuba -- if customs/immigration was otherwise suspicious, that confirmed that they needed to strip-search...

Tell me about Leiden. I'm contemplating going there for my master's degree, i.e. living there for two years. Is it a nice city to live in for such a long time? Are Dutch people friendly towards other Europeans living in their country? Is it expensive?
>>1139785 Dutchfag here. Not really well known in Leiden though. But it's a nice city with many cultural/language/law and medicine studies. It's probably better to find an appartment to live in, if you compare with Amsterdam. It's situated in short distance of int. airport Schiphol, Amsterdam and Den Haag. But Rotterdam is pretty closeby as well. Cannot comment on our friendliness, however for foreign people it's pretty easy in Holland since ninety% speak English. I think it's not really expensive,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1139794 Thanks! I'm from Norway, so everywhere I go is cheaper... I only have to pay 2000€ per year in Leiden, as opposed to 20,000€ for non-EU/EEA, which is one of my main reasons for considering it.
I have never traveled to S.E.A. though I have been just about everywhere else in the world. I think it's finally time for me to head over, though I may be on a very tight budget. $2,000 for two weeks, including flight out from Los Angeles.
Originally I wanted to visit Singapore, Thailand, and Cambodia; but now it looks like I will just have to limit that to Thailand.
Does /trv/ have any good hostel recommendations? By good I mean either: really clean, excellent location, or good party scene; I don't expect to find all three qualities in one place, just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I work as a car-transporter for my dad and he is offering me to pick up a car at the border of Czech. He says that if I want I could leave the car there at the company and have a road trip as long as I like on my own.
So that is pretty cool, I will have the entire van for myself to sleep in and carry all my shit and literally go anywhere I want.
The downside of this all is, because this is all so last-minute planned no friend of mine can come along with me to join the trip.

It's a nearly intact family estate with a princely history (and they were benefactors to Beethoven and various artists), where their works persist and have never been on display anywhere ever before, nor in your textbooks...

I'm a hispanic american, grew up poor, but now I live comfortably as an adult and I want to vacation out of the US; something my family never did growing up. I don't speak Spanish but I'm very brown. I know it might seem a weird thing to bring up, but I'm very weary of traveling outside of the US.
I mean I WANT to travel to a different country every year or so, but since I'm an American but not white, how can I expect to be treated in other countries? Is this a good or bad thing?

>>1142642 I remember being in Norway with a manlet Mexican American and he bagged a tall blonde qt3.14 where his head rested comfortably on her bosom, while standing. I have seen Hispanics do fine in Asia as well, and in the Middle East with Asians. Also with Northern Europeans women at hostels and party destinations in SEA. That's the extent of my personal knowledge with Hispanics.
I have a seven hour layover in New York. How easy is it to get to stuff like Grand Central Station and Central Park from the airport? Anything really special to do in New York (stuff you wouldn't find online)?
Going to Prague with a friend for 4 days and wasn't sure which date to pick,is there a day/s in the week I should avoid?like I know some places in the world doesn't have their stores/museums and other places on a sunday or a saturday. We are planning to visit bars,museums and other local sites and don't want to waste a day so please tell me which 4 days of the week we should pick.
>>1142238 Sounds like a good plan, OP. Plenty to do. Good eats. Read washingtonian magazine or the smithsonian website to see if there are any traveling exhibits that interest you at various sights, just in case you didn't know! I always find the best treasures that way, something odd and usual that way, as well as restaurant rankings on washington post. https://www.washingtonpost.com/goingoutguide/ Smithsonians are free.
