>>1137014 subway is great; i live in nyc and take it every day. i get a monthly pass, so i'm not sure of cost, but googling that is really goddamned simple. you're likely going to find a 7 day pass cheaper, if you plan to use the subway a bunch. where are you staying?
>>1137014 7 day pass is the way to go if you're moving around a lot. It will take you north south anywhere in Manhattan fast. Anything east-west in Manhattan is walkable for an able bodied person. Subway will also take you to any worthwhile place in the outer boroughs.
Hey /trv/, im going on a trip to the Balkans and im thinking about going with this route (pic related). I will be travelling by bus. However, there are some things i wonder about which i hope you can answer: Do you have to register your stay at a police station in Serbia/Macedonia? Is Kosovo worth the effort? Would you skip going deep south into Albania?
And also i would like to know about gems or other top tier sights that you may know of (that is not too far away from the designated route). Im well sure about what i can do in Croatia, BAH and Montenegro but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1136993 Haven't ever been to Serbia (sadly). But Zadar is worth a visit, if you're going there. Second, surely it's easer to visit Podgorica when you're visiting the Montenegrin coast already? Going from Kosovo to Montenegro to Serbia seems like a huge hassle.
I would add pics from Zadar. But I was an idiot and did not make back-ups before hard-drive failure. :(
I'm obviously not sure about the southern part of my route but things will turn out when I go there. I'll just let it happen. I advise you to do the same. Don't plan every top tier sight you want to see. If they're close to your designated route you'll find about it anyway.
Also: all of these countries are pretty small, you can just roam around the region
I will bring a tent with me. Will I be able to go wild camping or do I have to stick to camping sites?
>>1136996 I suppose i could visit Zadar if i wanted to because it would not be out of the way. It's just that i am abit worried that spending too much time on the croatian riviera will blow my budget, i heard it's a little expensive. Reason to go from Kosovo to Montenegro again is because, if i understood right, i can't cross from Kosovo in to Serbia.
I think you're better off spending your time and money elsewhere; you're not going to see anything spectacular
I went to Liechtenstein on a day trip from Zurich; there's nothing to see in Liechtenstein really, I wouldn't be bothered visiting it's just a basic little town with a mediocre castle. I honestly just went for the sake of saying I've been to Liechtenstein
I decided to have a 4 day holiday in Luxembourg City. I seen pretty much the entire city in 6 hours. The next day I went to Vianden Castle which was nice. The other two days... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I did that drive a few years ago. Buy an annual national park pass for sure. It'll get you into any national park or national monument for free. Make sure to stop in the badlands for a day in South Dakota. I reccomend staying in Cody Wyoming on the way into Yellowstone. Also, if you have time, drive down to Jackson Wyoming and stay there for a few days if you have the time. It's one of the best little cities in the US. If you have money to splurge, go do a whitewater rafting trip or take a horse ride in jackson.
It depends on how many national parks you plan on visiting in the next year. If you're only visiting a couple national parks/monuments just pay the regular entrance fee, it's good for 7 days at national parks.

I am starting to look into a trip to Nepal and Bhutan, perhaps sometime in October 2017 to co-inside with Kukur Tihar, the dog appreciation day Festival.
I am thinking of spending a week or two in Kathmandu and around Nepal, mainly staying in Air BNB accommodation, with a 5-day visit to Bhutan in the middle.
My wife is not very adventurous, but I have heard that the Nepalese and Bhutanese are very friendly, and both countries are quite safe. I have also heard that sanitation and facilities are what you would expect.

I don't think fruit juices need sugar either, but if you're talking Aqua Frescas, they're hit with the brightness of lime juice, so it balances that out. Some tropical drinks are kind of pasty filmy almost bitter, such as mamey or guanabana. Of course it counters underripe fruit in packaged juice brands, or bitterness from peels.
So I want to travel somewhere in February 2017, I live in Australia and I would like to go somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. My problem with travelling to Europe at this time is the lack of daylight hours and wet weather/snow may detract from the experience. Canada and the US East Coast will be freezing and snowing as well I presume. Been to Japan twice and travelled most of Asia so I'm not interested there (hence why I've been looking at the US)
I've been told the best place in this case may be the west coast US, I will be travelling for a month and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1136479 It will be cloudy, rainy and 40 degrees F in Seattle pretty much all the way down to California. It will be cloudy and 50s down through the San Francisco area.
The further south you go, the more sun youll get. I love the PNW and the west coast in general, but if you are looking for someplace warm you will need to revisit this idea. Even Los Angeles will only be about 65F during the day and could be in the 40s at night.

I've road tripped the west coast in February several times and it is actually pretty awesome. If you like raging pacific storms, crashing waves and horizontal rain it is actually a lot of fun. I actually enjoy that environment and there are brief periods where it is not pouring rain and the beaches are deserted and perfect for beach combing. Prices are low and you don't need reservations anywhere.
Then there is terrific skiing and winter sports in the Sierras.

LA to San Diego along the I-8 thru Yuma to Tucson to Phoenix then go home whichever way you want
However i dunno the kinda stuff you wanna see when you travel or how dedicated you are to avoiding the cold and the wet
I personally love the rain, but I have lived in Miami, Boston, Texas, Baghdad, Georgia and DC so the extremes of heat, cold, humidity, and dry have worn me out like your mother's box. I can deal with clouds and drizzle... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Share ideas and recommendations for visiting Portugal. I am about to leave on the 10th of July and stay there for a while. I am starting in Lisbon for 7 days, and I want to get the most out of my trip.
7 days is way too long for lisbon IMO. Beautiful city, but there's not much to do there. If you can, I'd reccomend renting a car and driving around, the area is really nice. There's some nice beaches around too. Don't remember the details unfortunately, was there some years ago.
Bumping for any advice on what to do in or near Porto. Won a free stay for a couple of nights at a 5-star hotel in the city, but would obviously like to extend the trip by a few days in another place nearby to make the plane tickets worth it.
I am a Japanese girl who recently got into partying and drinking. I will be traveling around Europe for two months and I plan to go to bars there. What are some tips for staying safe? My face becomes red even if I drink half a cup of alcohol and I don't want to become a target for men with Asian fetish who think that it is easy to have sex with us.
Hey guys, saw a few threads along these lines so thought I'd post up some of my plans for the beginning of my trip to try get a feel of the places I'm going to and to make sure I don't miss any obvious landmarks or scenic drives. I'm big into my history so hoping to see some good sites.
Looking to drive through most of Eurasia in a large loop over a year. Here's my plans for the first leg which I've allocated 30-35 days for, before cracking into Russia. I'm not from Europe so any information would be appreciated.

>>1134018 I would sooner ride straight through Denmark (so head pretty much North at J) and then jump on the ferry from Fredrikshamn to Goteborg. The ride from Goteborg to Oslo is OK, but long, and the Kopenhavn-Goteborg ride will be a dull ride through forests and stuff. I've (bi)cycled from Esbjerg to Fredrikshamn and it was incredible, motorbikes will have to take a different route though but its much prettier. Oslo to Stockholm will be long but beautiful, a lot of pretty lakes and scenery throughout, real quiet and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1134018 The first part of your journey is through some densely populated parts of the EU. I hope you have enough riding experience because that part isnt very motorcycle friendly. Not trying to scare you but it's just very packed roads.
Driving in Germany and beyond should be more of a breeze.
If you're into /out/ you should venture deeper into norway. Not that much north, just northwest a bit. Sweden is pretty much flatter than Norway.

I am going there next month for around 30 days (Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia). I don't have the Azeri visa yet (booked this trip last minute). Anyone got any experience of how to go about getting this in Tblisbi or Batumi? Will be on a French passport if that makes any difference.
im going to Prague for a week and i would like the usual, places to visit, cheap places to eat, good night clubs...any info about anything, thanks. also, i would like to visit karlovy vary and terezin, how can i get there and go back by bus? thanks again
I really liked the parks in Prague. climb up to that jan zizkov statue and go to the beergarden in the park near the radio-tower. also the park on the other side of the river, climb up to the petrin tower. the castle was cool as well, if you are very tight on money you could skip paying and not visit the interiors of the buildings though.
For food I realy liked Cafe Pavlac, try the rice/chicken sandwich its great. A chinese place called Harmony is nice too, cheap with huge portions.

I try to collect currency from every country I visit. I unfortunately forgot to save paper notes from Georgia, Iceland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and a handful of other countries. However, I have a metric shit-ton of coins from those places and elsewhere.
I don't have any banknotes from anywhere I haven't visited, except for the single Russian ruble note, which a friend gave to me.
Im in a bit of a problem here /trv/, I spent about 3 years uni studying Comp Sci and due to some unforseen circumstances I wont be able to continue. I had planned on doing my masters at a German uni but now considering my situation Im thinking of applying for bachelors at a German uni, but my question is would German unis consider the past subjects taken during those years, would they acknowledge them somehow? or is is strictly forbidden?
I'm going to the US Virgin Islands by myself on Wednesday. I've traveled several times in the past, but never by myself. I'm actually pretty nervous. I have no idea what I will do there. I just saw flights were cheap and I got a really nice, seafront hotel room with a balcony. But I don't know what to do.
try not to get yourself into a problem, be sane and respect local people I don't know what you can do at US Virgin Islands, but since it's Caribbean I would do some outdoors stuff, such as diving, of course regarding all safety rules. BTW How much was the ticket?
I am a student taking a summer course in France right now. Before I came here, I was expecting to stay with a host family who will show you around town based on my previous experiences. My current host family is not into showing us around town. The food they cook for us tend to be the ones easiest to prepare and I cannot help but think that living with this French family does notbreslly allow me to gain an insight into French culture.
I was hoping to learn more about French culture and I don't think will happen by staying with this host family. This host family accepts... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Also in general people will tend to stick together with others of their own nationality, specially people from the Mediterranean countries, you don't have hang out with your nationals.. I'm assuming you're a native English speaker, which I always thought it's the worst for learning other languages through immersion.. If you wanna learn French and discover the French culture just go by yourself, maybe one of your friends want to join you, so how I said unless you're 15 you better get your shit together. Where are you in France op?
>>1136826 I am 20. We are in a small city and there isnt much to see here >>1136828 I am Chinese-American and I speak both Chiense fluently. There are Chinese and English speaking kids at our host family along with some Europeans who only speak French and their local language. When I speak Chinese, the English speakers will be excluded and when I speak English, the Chinese guy doing his degree in France will be excluded. So annoying
>>1136322 >I plan on coming back to the states in about three years, I would like a card to tide me over until I'm at least a few paychecks into my new job. Uhhh, don't spend money you don't have if you are unemployed. Travel as a reward for hard work, not on loan.

This may not be the right place to ask this, but do you guys know of anywhere in the Middle East that would be good (and cheap) to learn Arabic?
I was looking at the Eton Institute in Dubai, as it's not too expensive and seems pretty good. Dubai doesn't seem like a very fun place to spend a few weeks though... I mean like organised programs rather than just living out there in a hostel or something as I'd probably just end up speaking English the whole time.
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to word this question
Basically, I'm wondering which large cities are liked by a high percentage of people who travel and live there. It seems like even top destinations (including but not limited to London, Paris, Tokyo, NYC, Hong Kong, Chicago, Toronto) have a long list of people who dislike them. If you mention you're travelling to one of those cities you will almost certainly find people who say "It's overrated" or "I didn't care for it". However, I rarely hear a bad word about Prague...
