Hi. I have never posted on /trv before, but I have questions, and you people are the geniuses of the Internet. A buddy and I are planning a trip to Mexico next year (Tijuana to be exact). We plan on doing the obvious for starters (bars, clubs, hookers, beaches), but I am having trouble figuring out what to do there because everybody on the internet is a tourist. I want to know what GOOD shit there is to do there. I dont want to buy worthless trincets and barter for woven baskets. I want to have fun. We are both 21. I need to know the best clubs, best bars, best brothels, etc.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1076536 Dude Tijuana is a dangerous fucking place. If you go, not dying should be a major concern.
Doing coke in tijuana is an awesome idea, but there's a 10-15% chance you'll be straight up murdered while looking for yeys. If that doesn't bother you, fucking blast 8-balls a night for pocket change bro. Just go down in a blaze of glory if SHTF, you don't wanna end up in one of their jails
I was there 5 years ago and walked across the boarder with a backpack and no one asking for any ID, dont drive there is my first advice. If you really want to go to mexico ONLY for tijuana just walk, everything you are looking for is a short walk all the bars your looking for is near something called like, "revelucion" or revolution ave/st/dr, whatever. Its literally their version of sunset blvd. It has all the trincets shots, american style mexican restaurants, bars, etc. but its also where the "safe" tourist hotels are. I got nice room for 20 bucks a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1077321 over to your lawn and sold his stuff, his quote "your going to have to fuck him up" so dont bring in any drugs, dont act like an idiot. the european dudes went to a strip club asked for sex and asked for hookers and they got it. i read this from a wiki style street sex forum is to just go to a taxi driver and ask for a brothel or ask for a girl and they will drive you to the club, in those clubs you can rent a room for a night andd get a pick of the girls, and read it was a condom must policy. but do your...

Hey, /trv/, I'm thinking about going to the UK. I've traveled but I've never been to Europe before. I'm Anglo, so I know the UK is like absolute pleb starter tier, but I don't care. It seems really interesting and fun.
I want to bantz with/buy drinks for locals while watching foosball at some cozy pub that's been in business for like over 100 years. I really like history (though I don't have any interest in Stonehenge). I'm really interested in 18th century Britain as well as Victorian times and the Imperial century. Medieval is cool too. I'm open to London, but it seems more multicultural and touristy than what I'm looking for.
>Girls Sorry, inevitable. My goal is to hook up with two kinds of girls. A really posh girl and a slag. I imagine the slag will be no problem, but do posh girls ever slut it up? How to British girls feel about Yanks? (I'm a normie--look fine, dress fine).
Where is the best place to pull a Kerry Louise-tier slag (pic related). I'm assuming not London. Newcastle? That's where Geordie Shore was. Any good places to try your luck with ulta-posh girls? I have money so that's not really a factor.
Hey /trv/ So I got a scholarship to study in China at Kaifeng in the Henan province. I know its not as cool as Shanghai, but oh well. I was just wondering what are some things I should bring with me, things to do, places to see, any advice. those kind of things. I did give myself some time to travel around and I am planning a week trip to Shanghai.

I was just wondering what are some things I should bring with me, things to do, places to see, any advice. those kind of things. Try the China general: >>1075030 I answered your question there.
I honestly don't get fags like you who don't even take the time to think of something funny or witty, just shit from your fingers onto the keyboard and find it hysterical. Like I go out everyday and work and exercise in part because being on your computer all day will fry your brain. Where did it go wrong for you and what can I do to help?
Hi /trv/, my mom's going to be going back to visit Spain, and I'd like to get a SIM card for a Spanish mobile provider before she leaves.
She currently doesn't even have a cellphone, and barely knows how to use technology. I know she could just buy one in Spain very easily, but I don't want to have her try and buy one and install it by herself. So I'd like to buy a SIM card online, get her a phone and have her all set before she leaves the country.
While on the subject, which carrier would be best in Spain anyway?

SIM: 10€ in any Carrefour supermarket (including Carrefour Express), includes 5€ of credit. You want the data SIM, not the voice SIM. They sell them in the checkout line.
DATA TARIFFS: 1€/day unlimited data, billed per-day. If you only connect during one day (0h-2359h) you only pay 1€. Thus that SIM will keep you going for five days without a recharge. You get full HSPA data up to 100MB/day, then it drops to 128Mb/s.
1GB Pack - 19€, good for a 30-day period, unlimited... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Most are decent people but there are a few types to avoid like chavs and kippers. There are comparatively few of these cunts about but they're the ones that like to make the most noise, they tend to have no qualifacations past GCSE level (or O-Level in the case of most kippers because only the very wierd ones are under 50).
If you hear anybody whittering on about the EU as if it was the most important thing in their lives run a mile and find a nice tea shop or you run the risk of being bored to death by misinformed bullshit about "Eurocrats", straight bananas... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/, I'm a first time traveler so I'm a little nervous and was hoping you guys could help me out. The questions I'm asking I've already tried with google and have gotten pretty general answers or can't find specific answers for, so I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm just a little nervous because this is only my second time flying (first time was to basic training where everything was taken care of for us) and it's overseas.
Anyways, I'm flying from the US out to the netherlands with a 1hr30m layover in frankfurt.
One... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
but can you access your carry on during the flight if you need to get something out of it? Or is it once it's up in the compartment it isn't moving?
Honestly the main thing I guess I'm concerned about is the baggage and packing something wrong/not permitted and causing it to delay me or something. Any overall tips for traveling/flying, especially overseas is appreciated. I'm pretty nervous since it's my first time out of country.
>>1076339 >Checked bag Shampoo and Bodywash in a checked bag have never been a problem on any flight I've been on in the EU, UK or the US. Neither were advil or vitamins.
>Transferring checked baggage Is done for you. You can't even access it unless you've booked actual separate flights. With layovers it's all taken care of.
>Flights losing luggage Yes, still a thing. But extremely rare and when it happens usually take care of very quickly. Don't worry about it. Your suitcases are individually labelled with codes and you also receive a baggage claim tag with the same number (which you don't need to claim it, only when you get lost).
>carry on Book, tablet, laptop is fine. Just no sharp objects or liquids. You will be asked to take laptops and tablets out at security. It's standard procedure. They just need to be in a separate tray for a few minutes. It's in the overhead compartment and you can take it out if you want. Don't do it *too* often though because it's fucking annoying for your fellow passengers.
Also, be sure to check the allowed dimensions of your carry-on luggage with your airline. They're usually lenient about it, but just be safe.
You'll be fine. It's mostly just boring.
Now. The reason I actually replied to this thread - any plans for The Netherlands yet? Where are you staying? What are you going to see? What are you interested in?
Ps. Even when you have something on you that isn't allowed there usually isn't a problem. I once had trouble at a layover in London on a flight from Seattle to Amsterdam. I had a jar of jam in my backpack that I bought at Seattle Airport and it wasn't sealed. So London security picked me out and asked about it. I just explained and it was all fine. They did take the jar of jam though.
In an airport in Greece my girlfriend and I were stopped at security because she had a butter knife in her purse. Honest mistake - she had taken it to work and when she... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Catalan here. I support it. We should extend the same kind of measures to all kinds of tourism. Generally speaking the mediterranean coast of Spain is an example on how you should not develop tourism. Barcelona is still ok but is going the wrong direction. I'm glad we are tackling this problem now.
>>1076372 you name it. Drunk chavs everywhere 7 days a week, real estate prices ever on the rise, all the bad side of gentrification, people walking around the city as if it was a caribbean resort, traditional shops closing, prostitutes everywhere tourists are, not being able to enjoy some parts of the city without the crowds, and I could go on and on
Hello all traveling brothers and sisters. On this board on several occasions we've played the game where one person posts a picture, and the rest of us have to guess where it was taken.
Today, I come to you with a picture to which I cannot give any clues other than these: It is most definitely in a major developing country. China, Brazil or the likes. It was used as a cover for the French publication "L’état du monde" discussing up-and-coming countries.
My own verdict: The foreground houses do not look very Chinese, but may well be. Shanghai, maybe Guangzhou?
I'm going on my first trip to Japan this April. I'll be staying at a shared house in a private room, for the duration of 3 months. I hope to visit both Kyoto and Osaka, as well as experience all the amazing things Tokyo has to offer.
Anyone else here hates 'semi-permanent residents' at hostels? I feel like they kill the atmosphere really. They're just there, supposedly travelling, but in actual fact just sitting there all day only entertaining the folks they know and not really engaging with the people. Have had it many times now when I travel around and they suck the air out of the room. It's like you visit a workplace and you're the client and they're the staff.
>>1076314 >only entertaining the folks they know and not really engaging with the people. Staying in a hostel for companionship is kind of sad in the first place. I think you should stop hoping other people entertain you on your travels. Travel with friends/family you know and get a hotel, or at least get out of the hostel and do things of your own accord.
I hate people who stay at hostels, period. Especially the type that apparently believes they are entitled to an extremely specific, carefully preconceived experience for 15 bucks a night and have the gall to become indignant when things don't work out as demanded.
