Heyo guise, I'm going to spend 1 Month in the capital of the (Islamic State of) Iran.
Gerfag, will meet and stay with locals mainly. It's 70/30 % artsy project-work/vacation. So, for the free-time: What do when in Tehran? Has anybody been there? (Highlights for photography, anyone?)
Normally, I go for food, weird/strange sceneries, nightlife, getting lost in big cities, females, music - in no particular order. For the beautiful iranian chicks, I'm pretty much out this time, because gf, also Sharia-law in Iran makes it kind of a very... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hey /trv/ I am going on a big adventure solo this winter.
I have received a fellowship to learn algorithmic coding and defense contract programming in Tel Aviv.
My housing and breakfasts will be paid for. But I will need to buy dinners and snacks.
I have booked a super cheap flight ($450) to Rome with a 9 hour layover before going to Tel Aviv. I will be flying over Christmas.
I have a few questions:
Will I be able to see any of the touristy attractions in Rome in 9 hours? The airport is only 30 mins from the Colosseum etc, I will probably never... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1052026 Currently traveling now and I dumped my laptop in my car the second before I left for my flight. I don't regret leaving it at all, you can do pretty much everything you need on your phone without the extra carry weight.
>>1052026 Depends on where you'll go, what you'll do and your preferences I guess. When I'm city-hopping on my own I do like to stop at a coffee shop and browse shit on a rainy afternoon once in a while but on a road trip for example I wouldn't even consider bringing one.
Don't be a normie and go to kuta if you decide to go to Bali. North and east shores are pretty cool. Also Banda Aceh on the island of Sumatra is an interesting place to go. Think it's a bit hostile at the moment though.
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I figured it's a good place to try.
I was on vacation for a month and MAY have gotten a girl pregnant. She seems adamant that it's mine. Since she is in Europe and I'm in America, can I just ignore this? If it is in fact my child is there such a thing as international child support? If so, would it go by the laws of my country or hers? Does anyone have any experience with anything like this? The baby won't be born until June.
>>1051998 Do you think he/she is yours? If you think he/she is then man up, get a paternity test, then marry her. Which country is she from? I doubt that she can claim child support from across borders. But if you go back to her country then maybe you can be arrested at the border? I'm not sure
So I'm in the early stages of planning a 4-6 week trip to Scotland, and I'd like practical information that I may overlook in the process.
I'm not big on culture, and my grand plan is to do several of the longer hikes through the country with breaks to distilleries and towns in between. I also don't want to carry a ton of hiking gear so I'll probably do the old man thing and sleep at hostels, bothies, or B&Bs.
So far I have 2 trails that I am definitely doing: 1) West Highland Way (94 miles) 2) Great Glen Way (73 miles) The... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In the West Highlands, maybe visit Oban. It's a much more interesting town (cathedrals, big folly on the hill overlooking the place) than Fort William, where the two trails join. The train journey between Fort William and Oban (there are usually three trains a day, and you have to change at Crianlarich) is often described as one of the most scenic in the world - so try to do that in daylight hours. From Oban you could cross by ferry to the Isle of Mull , and then maybe on to other islands (eg Iona)
I love the route from Loch Lomond to Oban to Fort William (Ben Nevis) to Mallaig to Skye. It's absolutely stunning. And Skye itself has fantastic hikes. There are some great hiking options in Cairngorms National Park too. The shorelines of the Orkney Islands are very dramatic as well.
Just off the west highland way you'll find a distillery called Aberlour in the village of Aberlour, highly recommend this and the mash tun inn is an excellentp lace to stay, a little expensive but worth it. also Dewars world of whisky in Perthshire and springbank distillery in campbeltown are a must see.
Hey everyone, so I could possibly have an opportunity to move to Surfside, Florida (in Miami). Has anyone ever been there? What's it like? Also I'm transgender so I'm curious how much of an issue that will be over there, I know Florida is sort of conservative
>>1051792 Yes. You can expect to get laid elsewhere. It's pretty easy to get laid traveling. I have never been to a country where an opportunity did not at least present itself, though I did not always do it.
f the places I have been, I'd mark the Galapagos Islands, Iceland and Cambodia as the DO NOT DIE BEFORE GOING THERE spots.
The Galapagos for the scientific significance coupled with the scenery and wildlife, Iceland is the most beautiful place I have ever been, Cambodia, between the Khmer temples and conversations with people who survived the Khmer Rouge genocide just made for a really powerful travel experience.
Slightly next tier -- Rome/Venice/Istanbul if you know and are interested in the history of the places, Yellowstone in the winter and Japan/China... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey all, British guy here. I've been "privileged" enough to visit Kansas a number of times as my wife is from this wonderful state. I shall be returning in September 2016.
It hardly seems like the most exotic place to visit, but this is my big vacation and damn it, I'm determined to enjoy it. Last time I was out there we had a fun time exploring ghost towns and abandoned settlements in the east of the state. That was - genuinely - fun.
I will be based in the city of Manhattan during my stay, but will also be spending some time in Kansas City... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I pass through a few small towns on my way to college twice a week. Have you been to Council Grove or El Dorado? Both towns have great historic districts and nice big lakes close by for outdoor fun. Have you been to Junction City? It's close to Manhattan and has a cool downtown. Also there is a state park just north of Manhattan called Tuttle Lake. Big ass lake with a cool dam and nice forest and parks surrounding it.
>>1051600 I'll be entering by land from Thailand, and thinking of dropping in to Singapore, so basically the whole rail route from Padang Besar to Singapore. Indian Ocean coast. I'll be there two weeks minimum, but three weeks is likely and a month is possible.
Anyone else here travel largely to try new food? This is something I almost never see on /trv/, which is a shame.
Singapore is amazing for this, the food you get in hawker centres is a slightly sterilised version of street food from India, Malaysia etc., but with the added bonus that you're far less likely to get sick from it. Absolutely delicious, I'd recommend Singapore to anyone looking to try new food. If you have a local friend, even better - Singaporeans are fucking obsessed with food.

>>1051599 Never got it in China (got regular diarrhea, but not Travelers), but got Travelers Diarrhea in Burma. Fucking sucks, you have it coming out both ends for a few days, can't eat anything, and get weak (had difficulty carrying my bag by the end).
I lived in China for a year and never got it though, I'll say that.
Take precautions just in case. Try not to eat from really shitty places. Take some immodium with you, and those rehydration packs. There are also plenty of isotonic drinks in Asia to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Indigenous peoples of the Americas crossed it when it was frozen over over 10,000 years ago. This is a pipe dream.
Assuming your car gets 350 mpg and its a 13000 mile drive you would have to refill your tank at least 37 times. If your car holds 18 gallons per tank and the average price of gas is $2.50, you would spend $1665 on 666 gallons of gas. But, you would definitely have to have an offroad vehicle that can operate in various harsh conditions as well as a boat to cross the ocean at the strait. Also you will easily be spending large sums of money at once to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1051527 It's possible. Some guys did it a few years ago by boat across the Behring and Atlantic, then biked across Russia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumnavigation#Human-powered
I don't know how you would cross oceans. You could time it to take cruises. There's Alaskan cruise ships that transfer at the end of the season in October. You could go from LA, Seattle or Vancouver to Japan or Australia. You could also do LA-Hawaii-Japan. There's some more common trans atlantic cruises, Cunard does... Comment too long.
