Hi /trv/. So, I am going to work in France for 8 month, staring in october. I am choosing between cities: Lille, Rennes, Nantes and Marseille. Can somebody give me recommendations or opinions on listed cities?
well, all cities above are nice. Yes, Marseille may be scary, but that depend where you live in the city. Lille is very nice, also Nantes and Rennes. I'll go for Lille. I'm from a small town in the countryside of the northen France (60miles from Lille), and people are very friendly. Also, you are near Belgium :)
Hello /trv/. I am planning on traveling to South Korea in November (right after thanksgiving) for 10 days, and I need some protips on what touristy stuff is worth doing. I plan on visiting Seoul, Busan, the DMZ, and the coasts while I am there.
Additional information on how far Korail/KTX will get me around the country would be nice.
Take this offering of pic unrelated in exchange for knowledge.
Guys this July i will go alone in greece islands. I'm single and i want to relax and see a lot of girls and parties. Any suggestion where i should go (remember i'm alone)? what should i bring? My budget is 1000 (including the travel fee and hotels) i will be there for 6 days and i'm from italy.
A few friends and I are planning a trip to L.A. We live about 24 hours away and will stay there 3-4 days. What are some great places to see besides the obvious. Any really good scenic mountain trails outside the city to go to. Good restaurants? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Trails: Waterman mountain, Hermit falls, and the Grotto in Malibu are all nice and not too difficult.
Restaurants: Philippes, Wurstkuche, El Burrito Jr, Venice Ale House
Obligatory Warnings: LA is geographically huge, you need a car, everything is more expensive than you're used to, there is traffic, the sketchy area is roughly bounded by the 10, 405 and 605 freeways, the air is neither perfect nor nearly as bad as it used to be, and you will probably not see a celebrity in the wild.
South East Asia. Most likely Thailand, because that's where my network is already the strongest and I already speak a good bit of the language, but Malaysia, Singapore, and Philippines are options as well.
In couple of months I begin my around-the-world trip. I leave from Barcelona to Asia to begin with, but I really don't know how to reach India. Pakistan seems tricky, and I need an invitation card from a local to get in, and the other way its through Kazakhstan, China and Nepal, but thats around 5.000km longer. What do, /trv/?
Next spring I'm travelling from England to North Carolina by a merchant vessel. The journey should take twenty days.
I'll be staying in my own cabin on the outside of the ship, in the captain's quarters, with a decent view out to sea. There's no internet connection so i'll mostly be reading and writing.
Anyone had any experience doing this? Tips/what to expect? I can watch the captain do his thing up top if I like, and virtually nowhere on the ship is out of bounds. I'm hoping it'll be a small adventure before I reach America.
Flying from JFK tomorrow and I have a few TSA questions
1) Do toothpaste/mouthwash/bodywash/etc (all travel sized) need to be in a ziploc baggie if they're in checked baggage? Or can they ONLY be in checked baggage? 2) I have an envelope (bigger envelope, maybe 10 by 6 inches) that's carrying a picture frame with a picture, a card, and a couple other things in my backpack (carry on), will they want me to empty out the contents of the envelope even though it's in my backpack and they can probably see it through the xray? 3) Likewise I have a gift bag...

>>1127527 It's always best to be forthcoming. The envelope needs to be easy to open for the TSA, and the frame needs to be easily taken off to see what's inside. It might even be safer to give the envelope to the TSA directly to inspect. (in order to prevent further suspicion.) And yes the gift bag will need to be emptied and inspected, so you might as well just give that to the agent as well.
How far fetched would it be to circumnavigate the world while backpacking? My plan is to start in the US Fly to London Take train to Paris Berlin Munich Vienna Budapest Krakow Kiev St. Petersburg Take the trans-Siberian rail from St. Petersburg to moscow, then to Vladivostok Tokyo Fly back to LA or SF then find my way back to Cleveland
I have $99k total saved up, although i would really like to not spend all that. This is a life dream ive had. I plan on devoting maybe 3-4 months to this.
Im also grappling with the fact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I had plans to do hiking and they went out the fucking window. What're some cool, non-strenuous things to do in Southern France? I've seen Carcassonne and I've been to Toulouse, which I'll def return to.

>>1127036 >Is there any merit to getting shitfaced in Chateauneuf? Wine tours are always a good idea anon, and plenty of MILFs will be there.
>Sardinia No idea about Sardinia myself, I just recommended it because cousin said it was cheaper than Corsica and really awesome. Also the ferry from Marseilles doesn't go to Corsica either. But if it seems couply, I'd avoid.
Also there are Roman ruins in Arles, Orange and Nîmes if that's your thing.
What occupations provide the most ability to travel? As in, the most flexibility and leisure time, while still getting payed (no matter how little)? Is it freelancing? Being a National Geographic corespondent?
What about volunteering with payed accommodation and some food? Has anyone here done this before? Any organizations that sponsor this?
>>1126491 >get a job with a multinational corporation >rise through the ranks until you're over 30 years old >enjoy pretty much unlimited free travel worldwide There's actually a high demand for people willing to travel a lot for work since most people are reluctant to be away from their friends/spouse/children ect for long periods of time
>>1123906 For men, yes. But every woman I know who has traveled to North Africa (notably Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt) has had an absolute dogshit time with harassment. And by "harassment" I don't mean hoodrats saying "hey sexy," I mean, men grabbing their arms and asking how many donkeys they'll require for marriage, and/or getting rocks thrown at their heads.
Completely safe from a personal safety point of view, as in, there's no violent crime anywhere. But keep your eyes open and your wits sharp, or they'll fleece you in a minute. So many scams.
They'll overcharge you at rates of 1000% on taxis, they'll overcharge you on cafes and restaurants, they'll put food on the table that you never ordered and then charge you even if you haven't touched it. Don't buy anything on the streets but the simplest of souvenirs, and only if you have to. The quality is atrocious and prices for whitey are through the roof. Ironically, street food vendors where the only ones who didn't try to rip me off.
I'd say its quite safe even at night, even in the poorest parts of the cities (the ugly parts of the soukhs). Morrocans, and I guess arabs in general, tend to all go out at night, from sundown til past midnight, so it's not very likely that you'll be out on the streets alone at night.
>>1123918 >But every woman I know who has traveled to North Africa (notably Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt) has had an absolute dogshit time with harassment.
Yeah, I agree with this, though I believe in Morocco it's not as bad as in Egypt. I haven't heard of anyone being physically harmed there. Grabbing your hand, yeah, but they did that to me (guy here) as well when they wanted to take me on a tour of the city. Just my experience.
Hitchhiking europe for ~40 days with 350-400€. We’ll be only paying for food and occasionally some entrance fees. I’m 19 and my companion is 20 (also male). We don't know the exact route yet (especially back from Paris) but pic related is close. Maybe fast trains from Paris to Milan, then hitchhike to Ljubljana and Zagreb.
Couchsurfing + tent/sleeping bag. Buying Osprey Farpoint 40 in few days, any better options?
There's plenty of free stuff in every bigger and small city. Lot of art galleries, museums, events and I'm happy with just that.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1127306 Good luck when every sight costs you 10 euro+ for the ticket. You're mostly looking at a trip where you don't enter anything, just walk the streets. Bear that in mind and either find more money or be sure you're ok with that.
>>1126679 >Is this a red flag? Yes, they are going to lure you into some deeply bizarre sex and then drug, kill, and eat you. Obviously. >I find it odd how they are taking in young travelers when they have no kids themselves. Maybe they themselves, having no kids, are very active world travelers, like those gray-haired Scandinavians one meets in hostels, and hosting keeps them feeling in touch with the world. Maybe they like young travelers because they couldn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I will do interrail. Chose the 15 out of 30 days, wich basically means that you can use 15 days out of the 30 to travel with train. Where should I go, after Paris? In Paris i will have about 20 days left...
/trv/ pretty soon I'm leaving the UK for a month, maybe longer to live in Spartanburg SC. Long story short I made a friend online a couple of years ago and we've been getting on like a house on fire. I've never left Europe in my life and I'm feeling pretty nervous so I have a few questions >What are the Spartanburg / South Carolina locals like? >Would it be sensible to carry a gun? Can i even get a gun being a UK citizen? >How much money should i take? (i have £8.5k saved)
Only place I've been to in SC is Charleston which is really nice desu. Other than that SC is kind of a dump honestly. The heat will be unbearable for someone who has never left Europe their whole life, let alone a Brit. As for the gun, no, non-citizens can't cc and I wouldn't really worry about it either. As for money, depends how much you plan on relying on your friend and the duration of your stay. >Protip: don't believe the "America is cheap" meme, because that's all it is, a meme.
>>1126057 >what are ... locals like? Generally friendly and chatty, though secretly judging you too. I suspect the majority of folks will, for a Brit, almost certainly come off conservative, religious and (let's not beat around the bush) sort of stupid and simple. Don't expect people to know anything much about what happens beyond the region, much less Ol' Blightly. Talk of church, social circles revolving around church, and which church you go to is standard. People shouldn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
