30 per person i reckon? You can do that if you manage well and don't hit the pub every night. I found aran islands and connemara amazing, generally everything west coast. Some hostels have a field where you can set up your tent. Months seems a long time tho, you can tour the whole island in like 15-20days.
>>1139661 I don't give a shit about scuba diving but most of the island threads have posts on scuba. Can we just agree that scuba and questions related to scuba should belong in their own thread? Oh wait, that's retarded. Deal with it, people travel for a lot of reasons, and a BIG one of those reasons is to hook up with exotic women.
It's a part of traveling. It's not unwelcome for 60% of the board I'm sure, even if people don't plan on seeing hookers, knowing info about the girls in a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Get ready to get fat, food is amazing and cheap. I think if you're in the military local criminal won't mess with you. You'd better learn some italian tho, southern italians in general are horrible with english. And hand gestures of course.
>>1139497 There's less French used by most people on a day-to-day basis than you might expect, although it is understood--a Francophone friend of mine lived there for a while and just wound up learning Wolof.
Has anyone had any expiriences with volunteering abroad? I am trying to meet up with a lad I met online, and I don't have the money to travel to USA from Russia, so I was thinking about either going to a work camp somewhere nice together, or going to a work camp in america and simply visiting him during the weekend. Is such a thing possible? Do such volunteer programs pay for the tickets? Where should I look for them?
reading lots of reviews and figured more poor reviews would be "they charge for things that I didn't know," but instead they're mostly, "they cancelled my flight, after I boarded the plane, and said I could get on a flight with them 2 days later." That's pretty scary, I can't afford to be stranded in another city, nor can I afford to pay for a last minute ticket on another airline.

>>1139135 I did a round trip within the US. Cons >can only bring a small backpack 30 lbs or less. >frequent delays >seats are small >bring your own snack or pay ridiculous amounts from their credit card only menu or don't eat anything.
Most of the reviews are people that didn't realized the cons and thought they would be served food and arrive at their destination on time.
So guys, I booked a trip to Nice at the start of July with my family; I actually was looking forward to it by researching all the areas to visit and what to do. I never felt more excited to go on a trip..... and then I saw the attacks yesterday.
My only question is should I ever bother going now that the mood will probably be ruined? I know my chances of dying in a terrorist attack are so I'm not really concerned but my god, how can you anyone enjoy a holiday after such an atrocity?
Hello all. I am going to USA in this year. My english is so badly. But I'm learn it. My english teacher says: - You are should more talk with native speakers. Well, I am looking for people for conversations (Prefer from USA). e-mail/skype/etc. My e-mail - me[at]octogeek.ru Thx for u answers.
Holy shit Switzerland is expensive as hell. Buy everything from Migros or the Coop. I went to subway and spent literally double for what I'd pay here. The prices are doubled than what you'd find in Germany or Austria in my experience at least.
Try to make a day trip to see Lucerne, it is a beautiful city.
>>1138942 >I want drink well and eat cheaply. Any advice? Switzerland is expensive. From Basel you can go quickly to Colmar in France https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Colmar or Freiburg in Germany. https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Freiburg
>>1138942 If your most important goal is to spend little you won't be able to eat on the streets or restaurants. A kebab is already 8 Euro and this is considered cheap for a meal. Migros and Coop offer food but only if you cook yourself or make sandwiches (without meat). You could easily spend 8 Euro on food in Coop or Migros as well though. Maybe go somewhere anon.
Depends on how long is long-distance. I can't compete with AT thru-hikers but I spent eight weeks hiking in Morocco last year. I slept out in the open when the weather was good and when it rained I mostly slept at people's houses so I was able to pack very light. I got pretty lonely though, which is why I only did half of what I'd planned. It's fun to be alone every night with a campfire and your own thoughts, provided you're not running from any demons, which I was at the time. And I was blazing my own trail which I'd mapped out on google earth,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Would I have any issues traveling in Finland as a black American? I hav traveled to Norway, and had no issues, it was an advantage if anything. But Finland seems a different, odder, beast than Scandinavia.
I'd chiefly be visiting a friend who will be an Asian expat there for work. She's been to Sweden, also without issue, but not Finland.
>>1138762 Because there are certain places, at least I have been told, that it's not the most pleasant to go as a black person. Same for whites. I know nothing about Finland outside of memes (crazy language, elf people, mongol blood).
So I'm planning a long haul travel to South America next year. Would like to aim for 2 years at least.
I'm 27, single white British. I'll have at least £10k. I'm planning to start in Bolivia and just go wherever shit takes me. I'm looking at working at hostels, farms, anything to keep my costs down. Found some good websites for hosts etc.
So what can I expect? Anything I should do beforehand I might not have thought of? I'm currently learning spanish. What kind of reception can I expect from people? Can anyone share any experiences,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

When traveling to a third world country, how does one get over seeing poverty all around?
I'm traveling in India right now, and seeing disfigured mutants and mal-nourished children shuffle the streets asking for money, as well as mothers with children in their arms and the general despair of the streets is sometimes very overwhelming and extremely depressing, do travelers to these countries just have to be made of thicker stuff?
I lived in India for a while and have traveled around the Middle-East, Latin America, and the Balkans. I wouldn't say that you have to be made of thicker stuff to visit impoverished places, but you can't be overwhelmingly sensitive, either.
An example that springs to mind is that of a teacher from Chicago I met in Delhi. He'd spent all day going to restaurants and sightseeing with a guy he'd met in the street. Of course, his new friend was a tourist tout who eventually steered him to a booking office. When the teacher realized that he'd spent all day hanging with a con-man, he put his head into his hands, stared at the floor, and started shooting out tears and screams. He actually got up and ran to the door and sprinted down the street back to his hotel.
I knew another guy from Poland who had a lot of sympathy for beggars. He'd take them out to eat, buy them shoes and clothes, and give money to poor workers. A Russian woman living in Delhi warned him, as did I, about being too charitable, but he didn't listen. By the time a week or two went by, he had a cohort of beggars and street urchins who'd follow him everywhere, smiling and reaching out their open palms. Strangely, all the new shoes and shirts he'd buy would be replaced with bare feet and rags the next morning.
I don't know what to tell you. You deal with it or you don't. Maybe give some money to a reputable charity or donate some clothes and books to an NGO. Do a little something to help the people you see without letting yourself get manipulated.
For what it's worth, a lot of the mothers you see begging with babies aren't actually the mothers of those kids.
My ex-girlfriend is from Delhi and worked for an NGO in a slum. It's a pretty well-known fact that a lot of beggars are part of organized gangs and will actually "rent" babies to take with them when they go out panhandling. In other cases, parents will sit at home and sip down cheap booze while forcing their sons and daughters to go out and collect rupees... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1137750 San Fran easily, when trying to plan a trip to LA I never find enough things to get excited about as one would expect for a city of it's size. Plenty of smaller American towns offer so much more. SF is a big city, but it's a worthwhile visit.
>>1137750 los angeles is a vastly superior place to be. san fran has become an overpriced yuppy hellscape. the whole town is a shopping mall with awful traffic and no parking. LA has an overwhelming amount of history, culture, nightlife and beautiful locales if you wander away from the tourist traps
>>1126331 Never capital-L love because travelling is ephemeral by nature. I could have if I had continued to see the same girl for a month or two, but such is international travel. I was an emotional wreck during my Erasmus, though.
Can /trv/ recommend an affordable country in Europe (or maybe the Middle East?) for my girlfriend and I to visit for a week during winter?
Some places I was thinking about: >Croatia -> Zagreb, Split, lots of other places that look nice >Serbia -> Belgrade, Novi Sad, Nis >Jordan -> All I really know is Petra >Greek Islands -> Not sure if this is affordable or safe so I could use advice on both

I have 12/23 to 12/31 off for my vacation and I am trying to figure out a place to go outside of U.S. I was originally thinking about Caribbean, but it's pretty much cliche, and I want to try something different. I was either thinking about going to Eastern Asia or Eastern Europe but they both seem to be pretty far, and I do not know whether a lot of places are open during Christmas/New Year Eve. Budget is not constrained but I would like to keep it under $1k if possible.
Do you guys have any suggestion on places to go during Christmas/New Year Eve for vacation?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does anyone else experience random anxiety while traveling? At random times over random things? The last 3 trips I've taken the first 2 days I feel super fucked up. Can't eat, and just feel tense. Then after a few days it starts to fade. But it's every fucking trip and it pisses me off. Like, I flew Business Class for the trip I just took and couldn't even enjoy it because my stomach was so damn flustered.. My vacation is over now and I'm about to head home, when I went through Customs I didn't feel nervous, but I know I acted nervous which makes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1139400 How old are you? You sound like you dont travel very often and mostly alone. When traveling alone i get nervous too but its more of a depressed nervesness. Even if the guy at customs gave you the "weird eye" he will probably think you are just scared of flying or scared of someone blowing themselfed up at the airport. If he had been suspicious he would have said something Dont know if this helps. Probably not
April 21-June 14 I hitchhiked from Austin, TX to Arcata, CA on the route (roughly) shown on this map. I thought I would share my experience with y'all. Obviously it could have been faster but I had a lot of stops in state and national parks and I enjoyed taking my time going through the small towns and staying a few days in some cities. I stayed in some hostels, a couple cheap motels, and had some kind people take me in but by and large I camped. The blue line of this map is a greyhound I took from Las Vegas to Fresno, as it is illegal to hitchhike in the state... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

He was Indian (dots, not feathers) and he told me all about being a trucker. We stopped at DQ and he bought me ice cream. He drove with cruise control with his legs crossed both up on the seat, and he would randomly burst out into Indian prayer songs. In return... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Just bought two anker external batteries. I had a shitty unbranded one my dad gave me that always crapped its pants and never worked. So I said fuck it, I like the concept but this thing is crap, and dropped bank on a 10,000 and a 3,330 Anker.
Otherwise small nailclippers, phone and charger, 2 bottles of water (I use metal.) Wool blanket if i have packroom.
I got a heavy Anker 20000 battery. Even if I don't run out of charge during the day, it's nice to use it in the hostel bed so I don't need to plug stuff in each night with people trying to sleep. It's useful to have the extra source so I've got much more leeway
It doesn't work for my iPod classic though, just my phone
In my backpack I always take some wet wipes, moisturiser, deodorant. Mostly pretty simple stuff, the battery is the only 'accessory' as such
I always bring a daypack so I figure I may as well take these... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/ as a sorta last minute trip my friends are planning a vega strip for September. All our flights and hotel are booked. My friends are 'better off' financially and I'm not so lucky. I'll be spending the remaining month and half saving all the money I can. we're going to be there for 4 days. What's a realistic amount of money to go with? I check some forums and it's like everyone made out of money posts on it, talking about at least $1000 a day just for gambling. Like come on now
>>1139128 If your flight and rooms are booked you're ahead of the game.
It's funny you mention 1K a day as that's the amount I try to go with, but realistically if you don't gamble much you can get by with a few hundie a day. Vegas is an expensive town but you can eat at fast food prices and drink shit beer just like in any other town for not much more than elsewhere, and that still leaves you a little gambling money.
I don't recommend doing Vegas this way, the strip is expensive and I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
