What the fuck is this bullshit? She wasn't told or aware that visiting someone in the hostel would include a fee. Needless to say I paid the fee though. She didn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1057323 You are trying to apply hotel mentality to hostels. Not the same rental of a room thing, but rather water usage, towel usage, bed linens, etc. If she stayed in some common room in the lobby with you, might not have been a problem, but anyone that is going to get bent out of shape over $11, when you snuck her past the desk without notice coming and going, then they aren't really able to keep good track of what thievery you had going on and then later wanted to argue about.
It's bad form. Go ahead... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Next week I'm heading to Arkansas Newport (from south america) and will be there until the 6th of january, staying at my girlfriends parents house, have a car at my disposal.
I am looking for things to do there, we are planning on doing a one day trip almost each day to different places and a couple of overnight trips so we are looking for places to go, things to do and such. So basically recomendations on where to go on overnight trips, (where to stay and things around it to do) and recomendations for places we can go leaving early in the... Comment too long.

>>1057327 I lived in Hot Springs for a few months. Hands down the most boring and depressing place I've ever lived. There's a reason most people forget Arkansas is a state. I'm not trying to be a dick, just telling you to keep expectations low. Focus on spending time with her and her family.
There's two truly good things about Arkansas though: >Incredibly nice people (although Little Rock is very run down and ghetto-y, so don't expect to much here either) Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1057176 >What's /trv/'s opinion on him? His show? I've never really seen anything much negative about him, other than the folks who kind of Real Traveler eschew all attempts of planning or guidebooks, in general. He's a nerdy geek, but he's sincere at what he does, of course. Maybe kind of bully level comments arise about his packing conservative clothing, such that one may appropriately visit religious sights without offense. That's about it.
His show is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1057218 Great comment on his books but as to your point on food I think it's because Rick has never been a chef by profession, he can give stunning insight into history and music because that's what he did for a living. He'll never have the insight of food a chef has though.
Also I love Rick but his radio show leaves much to be desired. It's only an hour long and he seems to use like 3 topics a week when any one topic he could go into detail on and have it be fascinating. Also wish he was less Eurocentric.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Singaporefag with UK citizenship here. I am thinking about finding a job in the English countryside. It really appeals to me as it's very different from where I am now. I've lived in homestay hotels in the European countryside and I loved it. I don't know if I am romanticising life in the countryside too much and I am wondering if I will get bored of it in the future.
>>1057162 short answer - it varies greatly from place to place., depending on local character, traditions, activities, social makeup, and so on. Probably different countryside places in England differ from one another to a far greater extent (precisely because of their relative isolation and distinct histories) than do large cities.
It's pleasant, though of course you're very dependent on your car. It really depends what you want from your life. Just remember that the weather in the UK is pretty bad most of the time; it can get a bit grim in the countryside.
My parents live in the middle of nowhere (in Ireland), if you have any questions about country living you can ask me I guess... Personally it drives me fucking crazy having to plan everything, not being able to just walk out to the shop or to meet people at whatever time I want, but I do appreciate the peace and quiet.
Evening /trv/ I come enquiring if any of you fine travellers have spent time in Madrid
Considering getting my girlfriend and I flights and hotel for a long weekend in Madrid at the start of March. Flights are £49 return from Dublin, and the hotel is working out about £189 for the 3 nights.
Whats the general consensus on Madrid? Some of the attractions look beautiful, but im conscious its not as "desirable" as say the likes of Barcelona.
To date, in the last 2yrs, we have visited, Rome, Barcelona, London, Prague. We arent interested in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1057261 >>1057143 Madrid is plenty fun, although I'm more familiar with Toledo. I spent six weeks there last summer and I can say it's definitely worth a day trip at least. Incredible history. One of the only cities in the world with an extensive blend of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish culture. The art and architecture are among the best in Spain.
Anyone who's visited/vacationed in/ lived in Vancouver here? How is it? I'd like to spend sometime there this summer while on my school break, but I'm still in the very early planning stages How cheap can a trip there be??
Where are you traveling from? What are your interests?
I spent 18 years there growing up. I know about most things other than the bar scene.
You can get in a good hostel like this for http://www.hihostels.ca/westerncanada/168/HI-Vancouver_Jericho_Beach/index.hostel for $30. I'd put at least another $30/day for doing stuff, food and travel. Could try couchsurfing.
It's a great setting for a city, but it isn't that great a city to live in. If you're into restaurants, there's really good seafood, and a variety of ethnic food.
Hello /trv/ I don't know if this is the right pkace to do this. But I'm in trouble now. >>Be me. >>win a travel for me and my wife to Panama City. >>everything fine and then.. she has a Thrombosis in a leg. Probably as a consequence of previous radiotherapy. >>doctors say it will take like 20 days to be able to travel IF things go right, they could actually get worse. >>only have 250 dollars...

I've always done Budget and despite the name they haven't been bad.
Be wary though, because no matter what the company is they WILL try to scam you. If you go for the cheapest option, there will inevitably be an issue like they're waiting on the car to show up but you can upgrade right now for only $25 a day.
I'm at a hostel and the guy who checked me in was new to the job and didn't take my money when I arrived. I'm due to leave tomorrow morning, so it looks like I'll be able to leave without paying. Is there any way this could go badly for me, given that they have my passport number?
What could you possibly need to know? You are on a cruise. They will take you places, they will feed you shit, or good food at an exorbitant price. You will get off the ship at ridiculously overpriced markets with the other 5000 captives. You will have to buy their boioze at 10x markup.
In conclusion, cruise companies make sure to give you the bare minimum to keep you alive while gently soaking and drying you in salt water and sunshine in order to squeeze every last dime from your credit limit.
>>1056950 >I'll be going on a Princess cruise around the caribbean on January. >Does anyone here have any experience with them? I'd appreciate it if you shared tips or info. A level above the NCL and RC regular ship, and two level above the low tier Carnival experience. Ship and food perks aside, it simply means you'll be traveling with people an economic class above that riffraff (and possibly a little older too).

>>1056940 fucking best episode. And Karl sums up the railroad nicely. Merchant says it's great because it's the longest railroad on earth and Karl retorts something like "they just took the worst thing about it and called it a feature."
Step one: Unlock your self phone. Make sure it's GSM (sim card) or GSM capable
Step 2: Buy cheap prepaid sim card
I am in Bahrain now. I got a plan with Viva. Sim 2BD. 1BD of that went to the account. They have a prepaid plan of 2gb, unlimited Viva calls, 50 minutes free non-viva, and something else international (didn't pay attention because I'd use data for internatiinal calls through whatsapp or LINE.). Got the sim card Weds or Thurs. It's Saturday. I burned through the 2gb already. Do they cut it off? Nope. Just slow speeds from LTE. You... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
