I'm off to Moldova soon. Going there because it's the least visited country in Europe for touristic purposes.
Has anybody else been to this benighted nation? As far as I can tell, it looks like one can drink yourself to death on wine, drink yourself to death on brandy or try to get arrested in Transnistria. I won't be there very long.
General travel advice and tips for enjoying myself in Moldova would be gratefully received. Going with a couple of friends and we will be based in the capital, Chisinau.
>>1049133 Once saw a post on /int/ where a Moldovan casually mentioned "the town rapist" as if it was nothing. I mention this to demonstrate to you Moldova is fucking harsh, it's like everything dangerous about Russia but twice as poor. There is literally 0 tourist infrastructure that all of Europe has now.
I'd probably recommend you learn a tiny bit of Russian. I don't entirely know the situation regarding language in Moldova but generally the farther east you go in Europe the lingua Franca... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1049155 >I'd probably recommend you learn a tiny bit of Russian. I don't entirely know the situation regarding language in Moldova but generally the farther east you go in Europe the lingua Franca becomes Russian not English Russian is indeed useful in Moldova, although the sole official language is Romanian, and the media are Romanian-only. In Chişinău I heard nearly as much Russian as Romanian spoken in the streets, and just about everyone seemed to be able to speak both (I speak... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Going to Amsterdam for three days at the end of spring. I wanna plan a day-long cycling trip in the countryside nearby, where are the best landscapes ? Also cool places to hang out at without too many tourists ?
Sup /trv/ I need some advice on a trip to the netherlands. We want to spend the entire new years eve there so it's gonna be just awesome because you know... it's the fucking netherlands (the somalia of europe). Can you help me finding a cheap flat? Can you give me any advice? I looked on every website I know and I didn't find shit. Do you know something i don't? Please help me /trv/, I'm kinda desperate.
I'm flying to Sweden in December to visit my girlfriend and her family for a month. I'm American and I've already gotten my passport, but there are quite a few things i'm concerned about. The first is that we're both only 19. The second is that I've never flown before. The third is that I'm going to be visiting for a whole month with probably only carry-on luggage. The fourth is that by the time i leave ill have only about $1200-$1300 and no credit cards.
What I'm mostly concerned about are some of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1048913 I'm sorry, but what do you mean I'll be fine without a passport?
I don't really want to have too many bags to fuss around with and get past security with. My girlfriend's family has spare clothes i can borrow so i figure it'd be fine to pack some of my own clothes + other essential stuff and be fine throughout my stay. I might end up packing more though if it seems odd that ill be travelling for so long with so little.
>>1048915 No idea why he said that. But you have your passport, you should be all set. Euro border guards generally don't question visitors, unlike America. If they do, just tell them honestly your plans. You really should have nothing to worry about from them.
>>1048899 I have some us dollars leftover from other vacations but most of the websites I've been reading say that they are useless there. But I've heard that their black markets run on USD so it might be okay to tip with them?
So I've bought all the transportation related items for a 3 week trip around Europe next month by train, plane and bus and paid the deposit on my hostels, but I'm worried food might get really expensive in some areas and I want to keep it within a relatively small budget plus I care more about visiting museums and local destinations than focusing on each cities cuisine and spending an hour or so each time I go out to eat. That being said they don't have Soylent yet in the UK but they have a close brother in Huel, just wanted to know if anyone has used this sort... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So a friend on facebook announced that they will be backpacking Southeast Asia for the billionth time. It's like the new Daytona Beach.
Why is this? Is it simply because it's an exotic and beautiful place? If so, why there? It seems like there's 20 people backpacking Southeast Asia for every 1 backpacking South America, and I'm sure all of them have their shitty parts. This is coming from a half-filipino who rather drive from Vancouver to Alaska and experience the beauty of his own province than fly over to his motherland.
South East Asia is 1. Cheap 2. Safe 3. Easy to enter/get visa Europe, USA, Australia is not cheap at all South America is more dangerous and more expensive Africa is more dangerous, more expensive, hard to get visas Russia and CIS: not so convenient to get visa, became cheap only very recently Middle East is mostly dangerous or closed.
Hence the reason I've always been reluctant to go to Southeast Asia. It's basically a babby-tier destination for babby-tier travelers who want to say they've been somewhere poor and exotic. Of course, half the time they just stay in a massive tourist bubble, exploit locals, and act like a bunch of drunken and drugged out bogans.
>>1048737 Protips: Self-drive vacation and a new town every night is the best way to do Ireland. Visa and Mastercard are freely accepted. Not a cash society. Charge to your hearts delight. If you use a debit (ie not a real credit card), AMEX or discover or something weird, you might encounter a store that acts like your card doesn't work a few times, because of vendor fees, they might pressure you to produce some other form of payment. Do you need to carry alot of cash? Nah, you can use a foreign ATM withdrawal... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It never hurts to carry cash (euro) with you, but it is not entirely necessary. Major cards are freely accepted, and ATM's are available everywhere. Get a convertor for your phone charger as well, like the guy above me said.
The best way to do Ireland is to see the countryside; it will only take you a day to enjoy Dublin. Rent a car and drive yourself around the entire country, or/and take as many tours as you can. The euro is very cheap right now, so a cheap price can buy you great long-day tour from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Check out Ibis, generally good quality and not too expensive. Look for somewhere in the 14th, imo, if you don't mind not being in a constant tourist trap. The 14th is more residential, and one of the safest neighborhoods, though Paris is safe pretty much everywhere as far as violent crime goes.
Definitely check out the catacombs! I feel they are under-rated, but it is really something else. Honestly, I have been here for like 3 months already, and there are new amazing things I am seeing daily. The city is so big and full of history that it's hard to see it all.
I'll have three full days in Europe (late that Sunday night to early Thursday morning) soon to travel where I please, starting in Milan and ending anywhere within a few hour's train ride of Milan. Does anyone have route suggestions?
I love to explore food, so Lyon has always been high on my list and I'm thinking that will be the center point. Maybe something like fly to Barcelona from Milan, take a train to Lyon and then a train to Nice, where I will meet back with my company from Milan?
>>1048475 I've been before and the last time I only had two days to explore solo. I did two separate day trips. Took a train to Rome one day and a train to Zurich the next.
It would not be hard to cover my example route of flying to Barcelona Sunday night, getting to Lyon by Tuesday/Wednesday and then meeting up with my company Thursday morning in Nice. Especially since I intend to do most of my sleeping on the plane/train.
Similar question. I'm flying into madrid and have 96 hours there. Should I split my time between madrid and barcelona, or stay in madrid.
Madrid only will be convenient but i wont get a chance to come back to europe for a while I think. Is it worth it to deal with the hassle of being tired and traveling to another city given I will only be there for 4 days?
