I'm going to be travelling to Amsterdam for a couple of days and am thinking about visiting the RLD.

Any advice (prices/extras, quality of girls, scams, times, etc.), experiences, and interesting stories appreciated

Thanks

Don't get a hooker there -- go to Koln or Prague or get an escort.
If you really must do that, make sure you are very thorough with what you want.

I have the unique opportunity to spend 6 months in Sarawak.
I'll be spending most of this time in Kuching.

Anybody been to Kuching before?

What's Malaysia like?

Are they welcoming to western men?

I hear food/general cost of living is cheap there. How much would I spend on an average day for food?

I only speak English. How big of a problem will this be?

I hear the country as a whole is pretty conservative compared to Thailand or Vietnam. Can I browse 4chan while I'm there?

I've spent 4 months in Melaka and am currently in Kuala Lumpur (1 month and counting). It's first world as fuck and probably way cheaper than it should be.

Everyone speaks basic English and are far from poor. I'm East Asian so I blend in here but I doubt anyone gives a shit that you're white. Melaka has large amounts of white tourists.

People generally keep to themselves here and it's not easy to be buddy buddy with the locals. Porn is blocked but that's about it.

Malaysians don't really give any fucks. Easiest immigration ever. Police are supposedly corrupt and I've heard stories of them stopping Indians to ask for bribes (most of them have the wrong visa and are here to look for work). I've never had that issue and the ones in Melaka was lax as hell even when one of the guys living in my house got stabbed.

Guys I've been planning out a trip and I'd like to hear some feedback:

I want to rent a car in Mexico, and then drive north through the California desert, eventually crossing Canada and Alaska.
Then I'll sell my car in Alaska, take a ferry to Siberia, where I'll cross the tundra via the Trans-Siberian Railway, and back to Moskou.
Then, from Moskou, I'll hitchhike home. (Netherlands)

How realistic is this plan and how long would it take me? What should I take note of?
(If taken into consideration, that I'll be travelling non-stop.)

normally you can check in 1 piece of luggage, have 1 carry-on and 1 additional smaller bag you keep with yourself (laptop bag, handbag etc.), I'm assuming with KLM too

What was their reasoning for this?
>>
>>1184167
The ticketing agent gave me no reason at all. I had just paid to check in two suitcases and then she tells me I can't have two cabin bags, so a backpack and a laptop bag which is basically a wrapped laptop in my hand. She didn't let me stick it in my suitcase as it was already gone and then charged me 265€ or whatever the price is for a 3rd bag. I am so furious right now. There's probably a huge possibility that my laptop gets destroyed or goes missing somewhere during my next 3 flights.

it's a classic rip-off pioneered by budget airlines, but mainstream carriers are increasing relying on fees+charges to make money instead of a straight price

you just have to read the fine print
one piece means one piece; not two small pieces, not two pieces tied together

I put my laptop case inside my checked luggage, or put all my travel shit in it as well and use it as carry on

Like the other guy said, nice people and fairly inexpensive. For a "travel back in time"-experience go to northern portugal. Up in the mountains people live a whole different life compared to the rest of the country. Very scenic, albeit a tad cold and yes, their english proficiency might be way below average.

For the more typical tourist visit, go to Porto for football and a more "rough" regional feel. Lisbon on the other hand is more "classy" and definitely feels like a capital....

I've got 3 days in Galicia on my hands. I'm thinking two days in Santiago de Compostela and one in Fisterra.

Question is: has anyone been to Fisterra in the winter? I've heard it basically shuts down. Is it worth staying the night if I go, or should I climb the cape, watch the sunset, and then split?

>has anyone been to Fisterra in the winter?
I haven't, but I would imagine it would be pretty dead. The city relies heavily on tourism, especially from Camino de Santiago pilgrims, and that slows down a lot during winter.

Depending on what you want, that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's basically a small, seaside city that during tourist season, is full of daytripping tourists and lots of pilgrims who are celebrating finishing a long walk. If you want to skip that atmosphere and just experience a small coastal city,...

I can't really give you advice on that. I never went to A Coruna, except briefly going through it on a bus at like 1 in the morning. It seemed okay; if you find it interesting or find out there's something you really want to see, it probably wouldn't be that hard to fit in.

People who use carry on bags only:
What do you use, and have you been able to take them on budget airlines without problems, or do you pay extra?
Is it even worth getting a smaller bag to skirt around extra costs?

Right now I have an eBags Weekender (largest size to still count as a carry on) and it was great over the summer back and forth to Europe, but I'm not sure it would work with budget airlines such as Norwegian or WOW unless I want to pay extra.

Therefore I'm looking for suggestions that might be a bit smaller.

Mzaar is the principal ski destination, and will (together with all the other ski destinations like Kfardebian) have plenty of snow in Jan/Feb, however, the beach might not be a good idea after. It doesn't snow on the coast, but it's not very warm either, Beirut gets around 5C in January, with water temperatures to match. If you go down to Tyre, *maybe* it'll be warm, but that's a long day trip. You should wait until March/April if you want the skiing and the beach in the same day.

I'm headed there next week for 5 days.

I noticed that a lot of the activities (ziplining, horse back riding, ATV) all unexpectedly cost a good amount of money. What are some lower costing activities that you'd recommend?

-Is renting a car to get around a good idea?
-Is the Atlantic coast worth visiting?

Knowing your budget, interests and Spanish proficiency would help.

5 days isn't a lot of time, especially with the locals relaxed 'tico' time. My idea of time management and amount of relaxation I want from a trip are probably more conservative than yours, so this might not be helpful.

Tourism is the countries biggest earner of foreign currency, they charge that much because people will pay it. But cant you zipline or ride a horse/atv a lot closer to home? There's also a foreign/local element to it. I remember a developed hotsprings that wanted...

Point is, i can't stay away for long (more than 1 month) and i don't know which one i should pick:

- New Caledonia
- French Polinesia
- Cook islands

Biking would be great, but not as the whole focus of the trip. Probably wouldn't be super compelled to go to any art galleries, and drinking cheap wine with slutty american tourists would be pretty good too.

I also really want to go to Venice, that is the main thing I would like to visit, but aside from that I'm sure there would be really cool things to do for the other 4-5 days I'm there (planning a week total).

Exploration and getting lost around other towns would be very nice I think.

I think its because you are exposing yourself to new stimuli which can obviously be stressful and overwhelming. Your travel partners will very likely be exposed to a wider range of your emotive capability and through the course of several days and even weeks may sour any relationship that isn't built on a solid foundation. I learned this the hard way after I went travelling throughout Alberta with a friend.

Alone I do what I want when I want. Want to sleep in the Hostel all day? I will. Want to go on a bus for two days and get to the highlands? I will.
On my own, if I meet someone fun, I can go and party with them and see what happens. I can change my plan in a second without discussing it with a friend.
Alone I am forced to meet new people because I will get lonely, whereas with a friend I wouldn't be as open to new people.

It can get lonely, but it's the way.

>Why does traveling with others suck so bad
It doesn't in the company of like minded people. You can get very close to someone even on a short trip.

As the anon above said, the relationship has to have a pretty solid foundation.

That of course doesn't detract from how special traveling alone can be either.

My father (elderly) wants to travel to Iceland this Xmas, and mentions Reykjavik all the time. I want to bring him and my mother there. I have to book flights and hotels and I just wanted to post here to hear some sound advice from travellers who have visited Iceland. Both of my parents are elderly and weak, so I'm looking for advice that keeps this in mind while also keeping in mind the maximisation of the travel experience in this beautiful Northern European country.

Go outside Reykjavík, do the Golden Circle and the Ring Road (at least the south coast). All the attractions are a few steps away from the parking lot so your parents will be fine. Enjoy Iceland
>>
>>1180371
The Golden Circle is off-limits during the winter months if you try to drive through it you will be arrested.
>>
>>1179681
it depends on the condition of your parents as to what you can do in Iceland.

I've been twice in summer and winter and will try to offer some advice.

I would recommend renting a car no matter what you have planned, as it will be easier to get around. You won't have much daylight near xmas and the weather will be cold and possibly windy.

There is plenty to do in Reykjavik such as eating, hot baths, museums etc. just google tourist attractions (don't go to blue lagoon as it sucks).

Probably Yemen.

If you're the sort of person that can't keep their mouth shut and follow the rules then I would say North Korea, otherwise it is quite safe.

Hello /trv/

Long story short, my life has become pretty stagnant and without direction or motivation so I have decided to fast forward my plans for travel and trek across Eurasia some time during this or (most likely) next year.
I have little prior experience with travelling solo or long-distance, and will most likely be cycling for the bulk of the journey. I'm posting this in the hope that you guys will be able to offer me help with:
-Advice on destinations I should especially visit or avoid along the way
-Tips in general to make sure I don't enter...

By trek do you mean like walk? How do you expect to buy months worth of food in Siberia with £1k?

Traveling without money and without at least rich parents to bail you out is asking for a shit situation

I'm in Australia now doing the typical work-holiday thing. I signed up for a bunch of facebook groups for backpackers here, you know, to meet like-minded people to maybe do something after work and on weekends. I just can't believe how stupid the average person in those groups is. I understand that many of them are still kids, first time away from home, but while funny at first I now realize most of these people are just morons, I never acted like that at their age, I can't believe some of what they write.

One girl for example wrote a post about meeting people and I added myself to this chat group she created. A few hours later she posted on facebook that she's so poor she can't afford food and is asking for places to eat for free, oh and she's vegan so yeah!! Then a few hours after that she posted in the chat group that she's going to a club that has a $20 entry fee and $12 drinks. Another girl complained that after working for 8 months on some farm it only took her 3 weeks to spend all her money down to her last $1000. Yet another wrote that after landing here she spent 1200 pounds in 8 days.

It's not any different in the hostels. Most of them are entitled little shits. They fucking start their skype chats in the middle of the night waking everyone up instead of leaving the dorm, and then complain about noise in the morning. A lot of them end up eating noodles and toast to save but spend $30+ a day on alcohol (and that's not even when going out, cause there they spend in the $100s). The French and Germans will always fucking talk in their languages even though it makes everyone else uncomfortable.

This is very unusual for me because I have traveled quite a lot in the last 6 years and haven't seen this yet. I assume it's the Australia factor, a safe English speaking place that attracts a lot of newbies. Makes me want to leave and I've only been here a couple of months.

Actually the French have such poor grasp of English that many of them can't even put a sentence together but instead of taking this opportunity to improve it here in an English speaking country surrounded by English speaking travelers, they instead group together and don't even learn the basics. I wonder how my roommate got a job as a waiter because he doesn't know more than 20 words of English but he doesn't do anything other than hang out with other French people and skype with his friends back...

People are just dumb with money.

When I was a teenager I worked at Best Buy. Most people there making about 10 to 11 dollars an hour. Every fucking day after work they would walk across the street and get drinks at chilies. They would spend 50+ dollars a night on drinks. Come into work with a hangover and complain they have no money.

LMAO.

Double LMAO. Probably spent her last money on 250 gram $50 tofu 'meat'balls.

>$20 entry fee and $12 drinks
Not if you're an attractive woman.
They literally get in for free. Thirsty orbiters buy HER drinks.

I think it's kinda sad you'd feel the need to pay people 200€ per day to spend Christmas with you in your house, but that's 4chan for you I guess.
There's harder ways to earn money though, so I don't think it should be hard to find someone to fill the job.

If you had 20k in your pocket and could move anywhere, what country would you go to?

I'm thinking of going Japan or S Korea. The struggle I'm having is trying to think of a job i could get. I could get my TESL but I don't have college experience.

Would lack of college really fuck me over that hard? Should i just stay in US and cut my loses?

I have $120k in my bank pocket and I just moved to Australia. Goal is to work here for a year or two, save up as much as possible, and then go to Asia to spend those savings.

Really easy to get jobs here. I found a job only a few days after landing here. There are many cases of people getting restaurant industry jobs within 2 days of looking. I have an admin job so you can see just how easy it is to get one, back in Canada any admin job takes ages to process.

What's the best time to leave for a 6-hour road trip? Do you like to travel through the day, overnight or leave early in the morning (around 3-4am)? I'm taking a trip from L.A. to Phoenix next month which is a 6-hour drive, and I want to know how I should do it. Some people I know who've done the drive say to leave early in the morning. But I've been reading from a few places that I should try a night drive to avoid traffic.

Figure out when the worst rush hour is in LA, and get out an hour before that. I'm guessing that means leaving around 3 am. That'll put you in Phoenix around 10am, well last their morning rush hour. Driving towards the rising sun, don't forget your sunglasses.
>>
What day of the week are you leaving? That makes a big difference too. I've done the drive from OC to Phoenix a bunch and we usually leave in the early morning around 8 am. Never encountered any traffic that I can recall.

early in the morning,
Phoenix traffic isn't that bad
