So for a while now I've planned out my idea of a year long road trip across the continental US. I grew up in Mississippi/Louisiana/Alabama so skipping those the goal would be 45 states over the course of a year, spending a little more than a week in each state and visiting at least one major city and one national park or national monument in each state. The order of states I took from here: http://www.randalolson.com/2015/03/08/computing-the-optimal-road-trip-across-the-u-s/ and I've been compiling ideas on where I'd want to visit for a while now.
I've also got plans for a secondary road trip where the goal would be to travel across every Canadian province + Alaska over the course of 3 or 4 months.
Problem with the whole thing though, is it'll likely be a while before I feel comfortable financially to take such a trip. Even if I sleep in my car or couchsurf for a fair bit of it I think I would need at least $20,000 to do such a trip.
Has anyone else done something similar? Any tips on how to accomplish such a thing?
Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone has any travel experience in Tibet as an American. Is Tibet a safe place? I know it is a "conflict zone" with minor rebellion towards the government of China. Is it possible to enter Tibet from Nepal as an American?
Has anyone had recent experience as an American in Cuba? I'm interested in visiting this summer.
I plan to go for journalistic purposes, but I wonder how strictly they expect you to adhere to that role. I've freelanced in the past but I don't depend on journalism for livelihood. I would take pictures, keep a journal, and perhaps interview locals, but I may not publish anything in the immediate aftermath, if at all. Thoughts?
Also, general advice for visiting Cuba would be appreciated.
>>1056143 >bump for interest Also trying to plan a trip to Cuba. I was invited go to with some Mexican friends who will not need to be in a tour. Is there a "tour" agency that you can use to enter the country?
I am planning a roadtrip through the US with my best friend. We're coming from northern Europe, so I hope we're white enough not to get shot down in the south.
Rough itinerary in the picture, but we're landing in New York, and are probably spending a week between NY, Philly, Washington and surrounding sights. We're planning on using whatever public transportation is available, but might get a car if we decide to visit places like Norfolk or Gettysburg, if they are worth it.

My father wants to take me overseas after I graduate college. I love British history so we first thought to visit Europe. However after the muslim immigration, Paris attacks, and migrant crisis none of us think Europe is a good option. It's just not what I thought it was.
I was thinking of going to the DPRK through Koryo Tours. I want to go to a place that not many people can say they've been to
If you really want to visit Europe then do it before the Schengen breaks down. If you absolutely don't want to see muslims then look up where the worst ghettos where they are packed. In the end most of UK is free of them.
>>1056128 First of all, you're a /pol/ troll. But just in the small chance you aren't, but are just an idiot, then yes, you can go to DPRK with Koryo. You should do it sooner rather than later since who knows how much longer the current DPRK regime will last.
Since I didint find any other thread about it, tell me about your travel, where are you? where have you been? where are you doing etc...

Planning a trip to Thailand with a few friends (Bangkok & Pattaya).. Thinking of going beginning of March. Ive read the cool season is a good time to go (Nov-Feb) and was curious if March might be a good time as well.
>>1055990 March is OK. Tourist numbers (just barely) starting to dip, not more than a little rain (the 'mango rains,' which coincide with the advent of mango season, are showers which sometimes occur in March). But March is also the short, steep ramp up to the hottest time of year (April is almost always the hottest month), so if you're not used to warm, humid weather the climate may not be all that pleasant--expect consistent high 20s-mid 30s C, mid 80s-mid 90s F, and sticky. Bangkok weather is never that good... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Next year I plan on doing some traveling and I wanted to start off in Mongolia since it seems that would be the hardest to manage compared to all of east asia, and therefore I would want to get it out of the way.
From what I've read, there is really no need to spend more than a day or two in the capitol.
Looks like to me the cheapest way of getting there would be flying to beijing and taking the train.
Like most others, seeing the gobi desert is probably the top reason people go there. However, I don't think I'm up to spending 10 days or... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Oh god no. The high end ger camps at the biggest tourist spots (Khustain, Orkhon Falls) are still just felt tents and you will be doing great if your hosts bothered to bring you some wood for your stove.
Not to say Mongolians are bad hosts, just the idea of commerical tourism hasn't yet caught on. You should always expect you'll need to gather you own cow shit in the morning. Mongolia is still a few decades... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Going to be in Amsterdam for the next four days. From what I can tell rijksmuseum, van gogh museum, and the Anne frank house are must sees. I also plan on doing the Heineken experience thing and at least walking down the red light district at night to see the atmosphere; anything else I should check out? Also looking for tips on Dutch food I should try.
>>1055938 >Also looking for tips on Dutch food I should try. - Stroopwafles. Preferably fresh, at a stand. If not available in the supermarket. It's the one everybody loves and descibes as the food of the Gods. - Patatje Speciaal; fries with ketchup, mayo and onions - Herring; Yes, Haring. Dutch style. Raw. By the tail. With onions and pickles. - Bitterballs; get them in any decent snackbar or bar - Drop; Dutch licorice. You'll hate it. - Stamppot. The epitome of Dutch cuisine. Mashed potatoes with (over)boiled vegetables. Read up on all the varieties. I recommend Stamppot Boerenkool met worst (mashed potatoes with green cabbage and smoked sausage) - Pepernoten. Peppernuts. It's the time of year. You will love these. - Oliebollen. Oilballs. Also seasonal. It's basically a ball of fried donut dough. It's amazing. With powdered sugar and possibly with raisins. - Frikandel Speciaal. A sausage made from every part of the animal they couldn't use elsewhere with mayo, curry and chopped onions.
im planning to move to washington this summer, but not yet sure where exactly. this is sort of what im generally looking for:
>a place thats unique & not basic cookiecutter crap >some kind of art or music scene >access to pretty nature >not too small >fun stuff to do & explore >cool shops >a place where i might meet interesting people Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Bellingham. Small enough to be cozy but it's not boring. Easy access to Mt Baker and the islands. Cheap bus ride to Seattle or Vancouver. Lots of good restaurants, breweries, bars, music, etc without being pretentious. Only difficult thing might be finding work, depending on what you do.
I'm also thinking of moving to washington. The weather and the proximity to nature is very appealing to me. Is there lots of work there? Im going to be taking a trip there sometime early next year around feb or march. Anyone recommend any cities? Will be there for about a week or two. Just a short trip. Thanks in advance
I'm feeling pretty desperate right now, I recently broke up with my Chinese girlfriend here in the UK, the holiday is round the corner and I need to get away from here. Almost everyone in this town is flying back home.
How dumb an idea would it be to use some sort of dating app to connect with someone across the waters? I've never needed to use one of these apps before but I don't want to fly in blind to a country I don't know without making sure theres something waiting for me.

Ok /trv/, I need help from any korean or people who lived/visited Korea. I'm from Brazil and I'm going to Seoul soon, but I'm having a hard time with the WON currency and I really need to know if it's possible for me to exchange BRL for WON in Seoul. Do banks or money stores accept BRL (the brazilian currency) there?
I live in Seoul. I really doubt you could exchange Brazilian currency easily except at the airport.
Your best bet would just be drawing local currency (won) using a bank machine from your account back home. Best to do this at the airport as well since not all Korean ATMs take foreign cards. If you really need to bring cash for some reason, then exchange into USD and then change that into won.
>>1055813 I don't think they have a "winter," but just this season that's not as hot as usual but more rain so there's less humidity? As such, outdoor activities aren't so great. But you could still enjoy the market and other things. Some people do the whole hiking thing which is unbearable during monsoon season.
>>1055779 Sevilla is a great city, but you're missing out if you don't have a small trip to Granada. Other than that, go to the cathedral, the Reales Alcázares, the Hospital de los Venerables, the Plaza de España in the park, and the Metropol Parasol is pretty cool too.
You should be ok with communication, but know that the accent in Andalucía is very different to what you may be used to hearing. Lots of people speak English anyway.
