I go to Houston for some uni stuff soon, and I'll have about two weeks to travel afterwards. I don't drive, and I will be travelling alone. What cities/places around Houston are okay without a car? I'm considering New Orleans.
13 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
New Orleans should be okay without a car. Houston is too big and hot to be waiting on meager transit. Light rail isn't that extensive. Get a driving licence at home so you can rent a car.
Cool, I probably will go to New Orleans. Amtrak and Megabus (sounds fishy, but eh) seem to be possible. During my stay in Houston I will be with other people, and we'll have a car.

Any idea about San Antonio / Dallas / Austin?
Austin and San Antonio are fun. Lots of traffic I. Austin. New Orleans is cool too. I'm about 2 hours from there. Never go, but still fun when I do

I'm going in Slovenia this summer in Ljubljana for 7/10 days, do you have any specific advice?
I saw on internet some recommendations about the town of Bled for its landscape, it is a beautiful city?
Should I book a day or two to go to the coast?
thank you.

Slovenia is quite a small country so getting to around is very quick. If you can, rent a car for a few days and with it you can easily visit Bled and/or coastal towns. If you go to Bled, make sure you also visit lake Bohinj. Bled is nice, but there's really nothing that special about it other than the lake and the castle. You can also visit Koper which is a coastal town. From there you can easily visit Trieste in Italy or Croatia, since they're both very near.

Enjoy your time there, Slovenia is amazing.

I went to Ljubljana and Bled at around about this time last year. Ljubljana is very nice but there's not actually that much to do there - it's a great place to chill out for a little bit, but not too exciting (unless I missed out on something). From what I can remember, Metelkova is interesting and worth a visit, and the walking tour is good for learning about some of the history of Slovenia (and Yugoslavia). Other than that there's not too much to recommend.

Bled is very nice, but quite touristy. I didn't visit it myself, but I heard from others that...

amsterdam is a pretty cool city but as with most cities in the netherlands, it's relatively small compared to other country's cities, which means that you can see a hell of a lot more in the same span of time.
as soon as you walk out of the central station, you should walk towards the oude kerk (old church) on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal. you will be amazed that there is this much prositution literally next to a church.

Only been to Georgia twice so far, haven't made it to Armenia yet.

>(from the beginning of July to beginning of August)
I hope you are like scorching summer heat then.
>What the level of English like amongst young people?
In bigger cities and more touristy places: decent. Also, while I speak French quite fluently, I haven't encountered anyone speaking it so far. German was surprisingly helpful on a few occasions, but if you want to play safe, learn some basic Russian. Almost everyone speaks it in both countries.

Several regions in the Georgian Caucasus are excellent hiking terrain: Tusheti and Kazbegi, with the most developed long hiking route being Omalo - Shatili - Juta - Kazbegi. Have your passport on you in that region though, border guards will want to check it - shouldn't be much of a hassle. Another region suitable for hiking is Svaneti - Mestia is the biggest town there, but don't neglect the smaller villages en route, or further down the road. Borjomi NP also has hiking trails, but I hear it's not quite as spectacular as the high Caucasus - it's mostly forested hills.
Considering Armenia: there's supposed to be hiking trails. That's all I know really.

Pic is near Juta.

Hi there, not sure if this is the right thread to post this in but I'm hoping it's close enough.

Basically myself and my partner need somewhere to live near London and I was hoping to hear other people's opinions on where to live that isn't in the city itself but close enough to commute in when required.
Right now Ashford (near Hounslow) is looking very promising (cheaper due to the airport) but I want to explore my options and gain some insight. Many thanks in advance

You could look for places that will be on the new Crossrail line. A few of the stations are outside but will connect directly to London.

Some of the areas are cheap now but the prices might go up in the future when Crossrail opens.

You have two options:

1) You do it. Whether you fail or succeed doesn't really matter because you will be writing a great page of your life regardless of the outcome.

2) You don't do it. Few years later you'll look back and realize you've done nothing, just wasted your life at home.

The choice is up to you.

Is it possible for me, as a 21 year old Australian, to rent a car from somewhere in Europe and use it to travel for about a month?

I'll be arriving in London so England would be the easiest place to rent one if it's possible.
11 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Will you be going back to London at the end of your trip?
Then there shouldn't be a problem.

If you're leaving from another location, you'll need to find a chain rental that allows you to drop the car off in another one of their rental places.
Hello Aussie,

You will need a credit card with more than a token limit on it.

Also, quite a lot of rental companies insist on you having been a driver for several years already. I know this from experience.

Might be worth looking in to "international drivers licences". (Usually a cheap process at a post office) These can make a difference to the car rental process in some parts of the world. Not sure about the UK 'cause I have a full licence there.

That other anon is right about drop-off points. You need to think about that.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You can, but they will charge you an extortionate amount of money. I believe the age the rental rates come down for is 24? I rented a car in the UK when I was 23 and I remember it's been close to 350 pounds for 6 days. I'm now 27 and just booked a rental car for 5 days for around 90 pounds.
Unless you want to get to somewhere really obscure and not serviced by trains or busses it's not worth it.
Also, don't worry about the international drivers license it makes no difference in the UK.

Okay, let's talk about the fact that you have zero clue about life and travel, really can't believe your questions. If you want to know what kind of food or money you'd need, start adding up airfare, hotels and restaurants. Find some menus online, and hit up expedia or something.

depends on how and why you travel

>only visiting all-inclusives, never leaving the resort, and only interaction with a local is giving them your drink order
>traveling to enrich your cultural experience, increase your historical perspective, and challenge yourself physically and mentally
You know, some people WORK for a living and in thier 3 weeks off a year they would rather be treated like a king than "challenged physically and mentally." I would hardly call that crowd hobbyists either, they typically hit up the same places every year.
>implying i know nothing about working for a living
yeah, nah.

and it's fine if that's what someone enjoys. i wasn't saying it's automatically bad. it's just indulgent. you need me to post a trigger warning next time?

dont get it

Is this route crazy enough to be possible?
Warsaw-Kiev-Astana-Almaty-Urumqi-Xi'an-Beijing-Tianjin-Shanghai-Guangzhou-Nanning-Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City-Phnom Penh-Bangkok-Hat Yai-Kuala Lumpur-Singapore-(ferries and overland trough Sumatra, Java)-Bali.
I want to do this all without any airplane flight, just bus, train, hitchhiking.
(sth like that on the map, I will choose the best possible option)

Make sure you do your research for the Thailand/Malaysia border region. Some of it is unstable and unsafe.
You are aware you crossing basically a HUGE desert?
Yes, I am, and I am aware that it will be one of the hardest parts of the journey.

Does anybody know what SIM cards are the easiest to obtain in China?

I have to spend a while there for work in a couple months, and I'm going to buy a used unlocked GSM iPhone before I go. I'm planning on buying a prepaid SIM card and using one of their networks (probably China Unicom) while I'm there so I don't have to pay outrageous international rates. But I'm not sure what kind of iPhone to buy, 4s/5s/6s etc. The last thing I want is to get there, discover that all the stores are selling nano SIM cards and my iPhone takes a micro or whatever,...

they're all the same. english is nonexistent, so bring a phone with some sort of translation ability. they all have the tools to cut it for you if it's not ther ight size.

I freaked out when I went too. but it's really not that bad. they kind of already know what you want.

if you're really afraid, they'll ALWAYS have this available at the airport in english if it's before closing hours (maybe around 10) for a slight mark up.

the first time I landed was a budget flight...

Bless you, anonymous person, for posting such a quick & reassuring reply. I'll probably get a 5s, since my understanding is that the iPhone 4 etc is starting to not play nicely with the new versions of iOS and that's a headache I don't want to deal with, especially if it happens abroad.

I'm crash-coursing myself in Mandarin, but I very much doubt I'll be able to handle a conversation about anything remotely technological by the time I have to go over there, so I'm really glad...

you're welcome. I was freaking out about it too when I went, so I sympathize.

only place with english is liable to be the airport, even in beijing. the questions won't be much, they'll just ask for your passport, if you want internet, how much money you want to put on the prepaid. but if your tones are off they'll understand nothing ,lol.

good luck. china is super safe and for their reputation as super rude, I've actually found that they're mostly polite but aloof. it's...

Hi guys, I am in Dallas right now and plan moving to Houston by car this Saturday morning and getting back on Sunday, I'm going to take a room for 1 night via airbnb. My primary goal is space center excursion, so if someone wants to join me, please welcome.
I am Russian male, 31 and I am in business trip in US for 2 weeks. I wouldn't say my English is fluent, so my secondary goal is to get some language practice with locals. In turn I could give you some set of Russian words if you will) I'm hoping this small travel is interesting for someone

Did you make a thread a while ago where you asked if you should bring gifts like vodka for your american business partners?
Make sure to visit a strip club.

That highway that runs though Dallas has more strip clubs along the exits than I've ever seen anywhere else. Stripping must be Texas's main source of income. After washing off people's windshield's at street intersections with newspaper.
No, I am not that guy who asked vodka. As for stripclubs, I have a lot ones in Moscow with much more pretty girls than in Texas. Texas girls actually are ugly
