American here, thinking about taking a train ride across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto, through Montreal, Quebec City, and finally Halifax. I've never been to Canada before (except Niagara Falls but that doesn't count) but I'm somewhat familiar with the country, and I've also never rode on a train before, so I'm thinking it could be a cool experience.
Would this really be the trip of a lifetime? Which cities should I stop in? I'm personally very interested in seeing Quebec and everything east of it, like Nova Scotia. Would it be worth it?
Train from Winnipeg to Toronto was one of the worst times of my life. Fuck all to see and takes forever. Best part is stopping every few hours to let a freight train pass. Rails aren't continuous welded either so is a constant clunk-clunk-clunk.... forget sleep
>>1132185 >Go to Schaffhausen and visit the Rheinfall. It has high water atm and you won't get a more spectacular view of it. >Go to Herisau, from there to mount Säntis. beautiful view all around and great hikes if you're into it >Lugano or Locarno are top notch as the other anon suggested >do the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Davos or the other way around

My friend and I have both been to Prague separately in our lives, and we both decided to drop by again, but together this time.
The reason? We want to get stoned as balls again, meet cool peeps again and have a blast. But, the problem is, checking the hotels for this summer (mid August), all of them seem expensive as SHIT. We won't really be that financially empowered, but we expect to put away around 100 to 120 euro both (so 200 - 240 in total) for accommodation with food, if possible. Tho we haven't even decided yet if we're gonna go via bus or train... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1132076 Go to a hostel, bruh. In Holešovice (literally on top of the C line), you can find a hostel with a bed for 200CZK (7€) a night. It is close enough to the centre so that you just get on a tram and go get some weed.
Sources? I'm Czech and I'm in Prague tomorrow for uni.
>>1132173 Shit, thanks man! Linking should be enough, we'll have google translate help us along the way, no need for you to stress yourself xp
We haven't really decided on a definite amount of money or time how much we'll stay, but we're thinking a week is gonna be more than enough, something between the 8th of aug through to the 14th. I'm supposed to start working soon, and I'm planning to waste at least half of my first pay on this (as the old Serbian saying goes, the first batch always goes down the river), and I think that'll be around 300e or so in total. My friend is gonna rely on the power of his mother's wallet and good will, but I'm pretty sure that he won't go without at least 200e totes, including travel and shit.
(btw, we're from Serbia, in case I haven't said so, and I have heard myths that there are international trains to the Czech republic from here, but probably with a change of train. Do you have a train that goes from/to Budapest? Since that seems the most logical place to switch rides, and I have no idea how to create that query on your train time table websites xd )
Speaking of hostels, my friend is a wee bit paranoid about them, mostly because they go for the 10 bunk bed in one room kind of thing to keep the prices down, and he doesn't want us ending up in a room who's gonna mind us getting high before going back to bed. xd
Speaking of which, I do remember being fully relaxed w/o any need for paranoia of the authorities when I was smoking a spliff (or well, that's what the dealer guy told me to do, anyways), but is the law for smoking/possessing any different from a country that has it illegal, or is the law a bit more loose? I was always confused about that, and I'd like to be sure.
Thanks a bunch for your help, man! Hope you do amazing things at uni today. 8D

Never used but am considering. Either couchsurfing or some other network. It looks like couchsurfing.org is requiring members to pay a fee to use the site (not create an account) so I'm looking for alternatives.
>>1127697 I flew a few times, but everything from Asunción to Lima i did by bus. I got on two overnight buses in Argentina and Bolivia, and one in Cuba. I hated it. When I arrived in Cochabamba at five am in the pouring rain without having slept I swore to never do it again.
I was gone for a total of 7 months.
I liked Bolivia and the southern Andean departments of Peru the most because of the native people. My favorite destinations were La Paz, Potosí, Iguazú, Cusco and Morelia.

I'll be living abroad for a year and I was told not to drink water from the tap due to differences in filtration systems and there being an almost certain risk of getting sick.
How realistic is this? I can't imagine myself buying mountains of bottled water just to avoid drinking from the tap. I regularly go to the gym and when I do, I easily have to fill up my water bottle twice from the fountain. I'm not going to start lugging around expensive water everywhere.
>>1133476 I lived in Taipei for 1.5 years and drank tap water, but usually it either was filtered and/or boiled for tea because I only ever drank from the sink when home. When you're out, it's easier to step into a convenience store and buy a liter of cold water for a buck than hunt down a fountain to fill up. At school we had water dispenser units that spit out hot and cold filtered water.
I do remember my dad telling me to be cautious about drinking too much unfiltered tap water but I never really worried about it.
I've got the Greyhound twice, both times in the day time for 3 hour rides. The weirdest thing that happened was the kind black lady sat next to me gave me a Jehovahs Witness pamphlet. It was a bit awkward but she waited till right at the end of the ride so it wasn't too bad.
I hear that if you get it at night in the south then that's a different kind of experience, though.
Jesus christ. I did greydog bus from Providence to Denver back to Providence. 3 days. Worst fucking shit ever. Drivers are shit. Passengers are shit. The only way for me to live through it was I stayed fucked up. Smoke stop?? Smoke a bowl, drink booze, hope no one sat next to me, pass out. Repeat. This was before wifi and smart phones.
Spaghetti here, I wanna do my very first oversea travel what do you think, 2 weeks in Tokyo or 1 week in New York? I have money for one of these trips, but can't decide.
I fucking hate anime, jesus christ fuck off with that shit, I don't go there for jerking off to cartoons, I like japanese food a lot, I wanna go there for that, visiting temples, skyscrapers and shit and just for the novelty of the things that you can find there (from the shinkansen to the designated hi-tech shitting devices).
New York on the other hand would be much easier for me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1133296 You want to go to Italy to eat Pizza You want to go to the Netherlands to smoke weed You want to go to Japan to eat sushi You want to go to India to shit on the streets You want to go to France to eat baguette
>>1133290 Both are amazing places in their own ways. One of them isn't objectively a better place to visit than the other. Go with your gut instinct and remember that you're gaining a great experience, you're not missing out on one.
So, I've become jaded with American cities. I've been to Boston, Miami, New York, San Francisco, New Orleans, DC, and live in Los Angeles. Are there any new places out there that I can visit in December for a week? Sounds ignorant but I really do feel like I've seen all that there is to offer in America as far as cities go. Needs to be walkable or have a good public transit system as I won't be renting a car. Also open to cities in Canada or Mexico.
>>1133179 I do, I'm actually a pretty big national parks buff but as it will be winter it makes some places inaccessible or not ideal to visit. I'm also 23 and waiting for when rental car rates drop for me when I'm 25 before I go and see many of them.
So I'm headed to Turks and Caicos Islands for the first time next week. I'm staying at the Sands Resort.
I've done a bit of research but would love to hear from those who have been there. I'm looking for tips such as hidden gem restaurants/activities, night life (especially vice/party-related), and any other specific Do's/Dont's that anyone cares to share.
Hey /trv/ I'm staying in Canada for the entirety of December to January. I know its cold as balls but are there any activities places worth checking out? I was considering Churchill Manitoba for the northern lights and all that.
Hey /trv/. I'm keen to go somewhere in Jan/Feb 2017, I was thinking of either Europe or US/Canada (Australian here). I don't mind the cold but I'm afraid of not being able to do anything if there's heavy snow that forces things to close or anything like that. What recommendations do you have for places to travel in the Northern Hemisphere? Of course no one has control over the weather, so I'd just like to hear your best suggestions. Pic completely unrelated
During the winter in Canada, expect all 'outside' summer attractions to be closed for the season, like gardens, old forts, etc. However, there are tons of winter attractions that open up, like ski hills and skating rinks etc. As for general closures, Canada is extremely hardy in terms of dealing with snow and things will only shut down during the most extreme conditions, maybe one day a year. I've driven through white-out blizzards on several occasions which is possible... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1133108 The fun part is that places where you can expect heavy snow generally don't give a shit because they're prepared to handle it. Countries like UK on the other hand enter "SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING" panic mode the moment they spot a snowflake.
In Venice check out San Zaccaria church's flooded catacombs, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Zaccaria,_Venice it's only a stones throw away from St Mark's square and it is beautifully atmospheric and lovely and cooling on a hot summer's day. Also Florian's in St Marks Square is THE PLACE to have afternoon tea (do it inside and you'll see the wonderful artwork too) have a pot of their blossoming tea if you can afford it my wife and I went there for our first wedding anniversary and I surprised her with that. The big bell tower in St Marks square... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A friend and I are planning to go to southern France this summer and we are going to go do some hiking in Gorges du Verdon - any one here have experiences in the area? Do you by any chance have recommendations on where to start/end, we are flying to Nice. The aim is to do a 4-5 day hike.
>>1133073 I never hiked there so I can't give you advice, but it's pretty crowded in summer. I actually don't know if you can just go hiking into the wild there, French national parks tends to be restrictive.
I have no idea how public transport works in the US, but apparently there's a bus from DC to New York that I can take. Supposing I've landed at Dulles and it's like 4:30pm, does anyone know exactly how I can get from there to central park before 2am? Money's not a huge issue but I'd prefer to keep it under $50 pls help, I'm super retarded
What is a good place for a 20 year old to move to and start over; maybe from scratch? I have my reasons (hellish ones), and realize hardships, but there are so many places and opportunities in America I just don't know which path to take.
I want to move to Narita airport Terminal on a permanent basis. Is this possible? I have roughly 12 million yen in savings. I believe I can do this, and it is my life dream to do this.
First of all, I'll get this out of the way, yes, I am a weaboo. I love Japan. I don't see any issue with loving what is, essentially, the perfect society. I love anime too, yes, and the anime advertisments at the airport are one of my main considerations. My parents disallow me to have anime posters in my room so the airport would be a nice release. However, I have many reasons... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
At Narita, both in departures and in arrivals Japanese film crews film a show called 'Why did you come to Japan?' in which they interview people who have been visiting the country.
I am certain that they would soon recognise me, and make me into a celebrity on Japanese television and internet. This would ensure I would be granted permanent residence of the airport. My money would dry out but I am sure people would buy me food and drink just for being so dedicated to my cause.

Ignore every single anon that reply saying that your plan is stupid, that you're an idiot, a retarded dreamer or anything negative about you or your plan! Even if they have a sound argument against you! They're just jealous!
Go for it, OP! Carve your mark in history!
Don't believe in yourself! Believe in me! Believe in the me that believes in you!
Anyone know what became of the border checks between Hungary and Austria? I'm going on a multi-country trip this weekend which involves both countries. I would assume they have been dismantled by now, but I don't think it ever made the news, international news at least.
>>1132849 I don't think they've been dismantled. But I'd also assume the police will mainly investigate suspicious Romanian trucks that could possibly hide some refugees in the back. You'll probably just have to show your passport and go on. Unless you're driving a suspicious Romanian truck.
