I am a girl from Germany who will visit he states this summer, the country where my male online friend lives in. Known him for 2.5 years and have video skyped with him. I want to meet him irl for the first time when we are there, but he doesn't seem to want to meet me. The reasons? He thinks his family members will distrust me a lot because we met online and he doesn't want people to think that he was online dating me.
He is an 18-year-old who just graduated from high school when I will turn 20 soon. He doesn't seem to want to meet me (although he said... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi. I am coming from Japan back to EU. I will touch in Turkey first; then land in Italy although I am from Austria. My passport is stapled with invoices from Japanese retailers because I was buying tax free.
Will I have to pay any additional tax once I come to Italy? Can I avoid it? What if I get rid of all these invoices once I land in Turkey?
Sup /trv/, Really want to learn to scuba dive but have no idea of what the best place is for this for me really. Im a White British and was wondering where the best place for it is? only mention this for language barriers etc Thanks!
Concentrate on how to dive first before getting all worried about where you are going to go.
Places that are the best in the world... Indonesia ( Raja Ampat, Komodo, Lembeh Strait), Palau, Truk Lagoon, Fiji, Galapagos.
But seriously, get at least 20-40 dives in before you go to one of these places or you'll turn out on the news as some idiot diver dying. Some of these places have strong currents and noob diver will have a hard time fighting it.

I plan on backpacking eastern europe from october-january and just wanted to her from anyone who's done the trip before. The impression i seem to get is places like greece and cities such as varna, budva and hvar tend to be boring outside summer.
Im in my 20s and hope to meet like minded travellers at hostels up for a good time but dont know if they'll be there during this time of the year
I would recommend the Pirin mountain region (Bansko) and Rhodopa mountain region, which is adjacent to Pirin (separated by the Mesta river). Seeing the Rila monastery is a must any time of year and golden autumn is no exception.
Attached is what to expect from Rhodopa region. Pirin is more rocky+lakes and mountain lodges. Should be a tad cheaper because it's off season (Ski Season 2015 kicked off on December 12 iirc).
You should get very favourable weather for hiking,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just got done traveling the country over the past year. Hit all lower 48 states and 23 National Parks and a buncha National Forests, etc. etc. Money started dwindling so I had to settle down somewhere, and Boise is where I ended up.
Any Boise/Treasure Valley fags here have some suggestions of things to do, places to go, etc.? I've done some hiking around the area and have checked out a couple places, but I've been here a week now and need to get out and meet some people and check out the city. Suggestions are very welcome. The town seems pretty awesome and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

i'm going to be moving to portland before the month is up. i have applied for some jobs and will continue to do so until i move, although i realize that's a long shot until i get there. currently in seattle though, so who knows. i am also looking for a room, but don't imagine that will be any easier to secure from miles away, so i was wondering if you guys had any recommendations on dirt cheap lodging options. preferably pet-friendly as i have a cat. i can try to arrange something else for him temporarily but would prefer to bring him with. i'm...

I live in SE Portland, I may be able to help you out. My bf and I are trying to take a month-long road trip (appx. July 10-Aug 10th). We are looking to sublet our place for that month. It wouldn't be long term obviously but it would a hell of a lot cheaper than trying to find a place from Seattle, trust me trying to find ANYWHERE to live here is a nightmare. If you're interested maybe we can talk about it. We'd be totally cool with the cat situation.
>>1129868 Lufthansa employee here, i work with them every day, cocky assholes. But from FRA at least one can say they are dependable, expect nothing special, they will get you there safely and on time. 3h in IST is enough provided you have no major delays, in wich case you will be rebooked anyways.
fly with them every second week. top service, very professional. you made a good choice, no problem on security checks. best european airline for a reason. please report back with your experiences when youre in tlv. have a nice flight :)
Hello travel Board! Next June i will be going to Koh Samui Island (Thailand), will be staying there for 23 days training and drinking. after that i will og from Surat-Thani by plane to Bangkok. when we arrive at Bangkok we will travel to Wat Bang Phra temple to get traditional tattoos and to give offerings (situated 50 minutes from Bangkok). will also get tattooed in Bangkok but more personal designs etc. after we spend one night there we will travel to Ho Chi Minh and stay for 5 days visiting old Vietcong Caves and shooting old guns from the Vietnam war. then we will...

>>1129893 23 days for just Koh Samui, training camp With some MMA folks ;) then travel to Bangkok for tattos before going to Vietnam to meet old relatives and go Cave sightseeing and go to the gun range, then back to Bangkok to round up the trip With a little partying and a visit to a few gun ranges there aswell then home if you are wondering about all the gun ranges then the answer is that we live in Norway so not alot of guns to shoot here LOL
also we just made another thing, Train from Ho Chi Minh to Cambodia to stay for 2 days before THEN going back to Bangkok to stay for 2 days before going home. plane, Train or bus from Cambodia to Bangkok?
Hey guys i'm 20 years old from Australia. I want to backpack Europe in September for at least a month. Ideally i'd go with a mate but they are either busy or don't have money so i'm doing it by myself.
My question is, in your opinion what are the must sees and is there anything that is overrated and I should just skip it to save time? I would love to see some incredible nature, and just really get outside and experience everything. I am not huge on the whole nightclub scene but any festivals or anything that sound appealing would be great.

>>1129708 1400 Euros for an 8 day trip sounds pretty expensive to me. If that's the cheapest it can be done then, hey, that's life, I just wonder if there's any way to do it cheaper. We're looking to go in July though, so I think either way, it'll be out of our budget - I've had a look at some rental prices for camper vans, and that alone would be too much this time round, I think.
What were your highlights of the trip? Is it definitely worth doing?
EU citizen here, going to travel to Russia's Far East & China overland trough Ukraine/Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan. Is Eastern Ukraine safe enough to just pass trough there or had I better choose Belarus in this matter?
Belarus is by far more safe than Eastern Ukraine, that being said, going there is not impossible. However, you can't cross from the yellow on your map to the red, at least not legally from either a Ukrainian or Russian viewpoint. If illegally crossing an active frontline is your thing, then sure, go ahead. If not, go to Russia with a double entry visa, go down to Rostov-on-Don, cross into Eastern Ukraine and go to Donetsk and/or Lugansk, then go back. They say you should find someone there to meet you and accompany you, an Interpals-gf for example. A foreigner walking around... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1129050 Hey, I have little to no experience with them or living in Miyoshi or Japan more generally (to tell you the truth I don't even know what they are and have never even been to Japan). But I will say that they are common in Japan relative to other parts of the world and they are venomous (you are right to be freaked out). My suggested course of action would be to google it or to commit seppuku (Japanese cultural reference).
Long story short, my girlfriend and myself are planning on moving to Japan at the beginning of next year, primarily to tutor conversational English.
Basically, I'm curious as to how Japanese people, in general, react to foreigners. Any answers would be appreciated, be it from Japanese locals themselves or from anyone who's had similar experiences. Also, we'll be based in Osaka
Please take it to the Japan thread in the future, but before people start posting a bunch of distorted or exaggerated nonsense, Japanese people generally treat foreigners with kindness and respect, at least outwardly. They are polite people who hate confrontation (avoiding or ignoring problems is something Japanese are good at) so you should have no problems, especially in a big place like Osaka that has a higher % of foreigners than the countryside or a small town..Japanese people also want foreigners to have a good impression of Japan while they are here so that when those...

>>1128702 You just need to take a break, I'm living in France and it happens often. 1 week is good enough usually but after a couple days I'll start not feeling it again. I should take a longer break like 1 month but life is too shit to stop smoking currently
Have you looked into the cost to ship a vehicle out of the states and licensing it in Europe? That aspect may be very expensive. Other than that, I think your plan is doable cost-wise, although it is difficult to get a vehicle insured in California if you don't have a US address. As long as you are 25 or older, renting is probably a better option. $1200 will get you a one way rental SF to NY.
Buy some camping gear when you get to SF and a National Park pass and you can have some incredible adventures. Too many places come to mind to list, but a month will go by really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1128429 There was a temporary visa exemption for UK citizens valid through... I think it's this month. Check your embassy website to see if it's still valid.
If not, visas on arrival can be procured, but you have to sign up for them in advance... Lots of online travel agents doing this with 24-48 hour turnaround. You get an approval letter that you hand in with your passport at the VOA window. Easy enough to do.

Yeah, I'm not sure, OP. Though i will throw in a plug for durham, which I visit every two months or so to see friends. It's much smaller than raleigh but has a pretty good restaurant and bar scene, a well known minor league baseball team, the really pretty duke campus and gardens, good local music, and some other cool stuff I'm sure. Have a good trip wherever you go.
>>1128126 Museum in Raleigh has the only mounted Acrocanthosaurus skeleton n display anywhere in the world, if you are into that sort of thing.
They had gotten a grant to bid on acquiring Sue, the Tyrannosaurus now in the Field Museum, and got into a bidding war for that -- Field had deeper pockets, and there sat Raleigh with all this money and here comes somebody finding a decent and fairly complete Acro. Not as big as a T. rex, but still -- only one in the world.
I'm in Spain via Workaway ATM. Yesterday I wasn't feeling well and today I decided to have a day off, because fuck it. Tonight my host came home and asked what I had been doing all day, so I said "Nothing". And she answered "You should do more." I didn't answer, because I don't care. I'm here because I didn't want to stay home, not to work. I know this isn't the most righteous thing but it's my first day off after 15 days.
OP here. I wasn't being that specific, I don't have a contract or things like that. It was more of a "fuck you host" post. Plus, I decided not to eat this evening and they didn't ask me if I wanted to. That's rude but who cares I guess
Nah dude I just left barcelona after 5 days and that was 4 days and 14 hours to long , there were 9 hours that a did enjoy and that was mainly the beach and the sigrada Familia. So don't feel bad. Just do you. Ps.live mas haha
Greetings fellow /trv/ellers! I've come to the conclusion that travelling with a large backpack is not for me. I'm a photographer with a lot of seriously heavy gear in my photo backpack. Therefore, a second backpack for my clothes and other stuff is not exactly easy to handle. I'm looking for a large (120L or more) suitcase for my future travels. Should be a hardshell case so any souvenirs I put inside don't easily break. Wheels are a must. The lighter the better. Any suggestions?
Hey /trv/, first time poster. For my senior year in highschool, our french and Spanish classes are travelling to Peru. We're hitting Lima, Cuzco, Sacred Valley, and finally Machu Picchu over 7 days. I think the travel company is WorldStrides. Can anyone share some similar experiences? It'll be my first time out of the U.S.
Ah, you're heading to Peru! Wonderful place, nice views. Especially from the top of Machu Picchu. For some cultural do's and don't's:
DO NOT carry around valuables or wear expensive jewelry. DO NOT walk around shirtless. Dress informally. DO NOT use "indio" or "indios" to refer to the natives. Those are considered derogatory to them. DO NOT DRINK TAP WATER. Buy the bottled variant instead. Here's a big one. DO NOT, AND I MEAN DO NOT be offended by the word "Gringo" (foreigner; white person)

Afternoon guys, I have a quick question. I am wanting to travel and Ireland, I have traveled to 41 out of 50 states here in the U.S and I accomplished this by the age of 25. I am wanting to know how i could make this trip happen, what steps do I need to take and what do I need to do before hand ? Tips and advice from anyone who has traveled before will be greatly appreciated. I do have certifications here (EMT,) but I doubt they would carry over. Anyway, all advice and tips welcome, Thanks!
>>1127821 Your post is confusing. Are you looking to travel or live in Ireland? Two different things, of course.
You need to rent/own a car to see Ireland properly. Too many towns to cover that only have 1 day of sights, and the trains and buses aren't scheduled right for you. It should take 1 week for each hemisphere of the country, maybe 2-3 weeks for the whole country if you're luxuriously doing it all at once. Go at shoulder seasons and you should find the B&Bs lovely and quite affordable, though the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1127997 I want to live there and see the country for maybe a year or so. I got several skills that I have but I am sure I have to get recertifed to work in the EU or N. Ireland. Any suggestions on income? I'm all ears. Also, I was not aware that getting employed there would be so hard. Is it just because there is smalls town scattered everywhere? I'll check that author out, I am trying to be there within six months =/
I'll be going to Rhodos for 1 week with my gf in july. Any tips on what we really shouldn't miss? Also, does anybody know what the situation is regarding immigrants? I know that there's quite a lot there, but does it really effect the tourist areas?
>>1127295 Lindos and Rhodos City are prette nice. Falikraki has a lot of great beaches and there are some lonely beaches at the south of it. Faliraki itself is a typical tourist town, I think almost no Greek actually lives there. I also enjoyed driving through the Island there are lovely villages and beautiful nature on the way. Just take a shitton of water with you. If you want to eat something buy some fruits from Greeks you see on the way. Its cheap, they are poor so you are helping them and its fucking tasty.

>>1128346 It depends. You can probably spend a lot of money on food if you eat at the usual tourist traps, but it was actually easy to find a cheap dinner. On another note, half of russia seems to spend their freetime at Rhodos. It's quite bizarre to see russian shops on a Greek Isle. I spoke to some Greeks and they told me that it was the same with Germans in the 80's and 90's. So don't be suprised when someone starts speaking to you in Russian.
