Going to Lisbon for 2 weeks next month. Any advice for what to do over there e.g things to see, place to go, good places to eat and drink at etc. Also is there any place near Lisbon which would be worth going to? Thanks.
>>1121108 I haven't been in the country for the past year but last time I checked it was like 24€. You can probably get a better price and faster tavel taking a Ryanair flight from Lisbon to Porto honestly.
>>1121025 The fact he told me that he uses 4chan really changed my perception of him. Like he says he likes to workout and stays fit and that he's not into adult material. Well, back then he seemed more innocent I really dont know what to do. He never flirted with me or anything but I just gave me his number... Please help. My blood is as cold as ice now
Are you allowed to sleep in airports? I'm going to be transferring airports in Tokyo and have about 14 hours to kill. Was wondering if I could spend some time in the city, then head to the terminal at about midnight and just sleep in a chair until I have to get up for my 7am flight.
>>1120918 Republic of Georgia was giving away farms for a while, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to live off the land there--I believe they were hoping skilled farmers would be able to rehabilitate agricultural land with low productivity.
So I spend most of my time in Cambodia. I wish to go to Eastern Africa, or South Afrca, for a couple of months. Any tickets I see from Phnom Penh; Bangkok, HCMC to places like Kenya, are close to 800-900 Euro return
Are there any ways of getting to Africa from SEA that will cost me about 600 return, which is what I usually pay to get to SEA from Europe and then back.
I would consder any of these destinations: South Africa, Mocambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia.
Any reasonably priced options anywhere that I have overlooked?
>>1119290 If you're going to Perugia, no reason not to take take along a towel and swimming trunks and spend an afternoon at Lago Trasimeno. This depends on when you're going, of course. Go to San Marino. It's meme-tier, but at least you'll be able to say you've been there. I'm Italian and I haven't ever. Assisi is also nice, but kind of small. Ravenna is supposed to be nice, but it's just on the outskirts of your red line. Where will you be staying, exactly? Will you have a car, or will... Comment too long.

Originally I was going to go July 7th to the 14th with a friend of mine, but she was just told by her boss that because she went home at the beginning of the month, that she can't go.
That being said, anyone feel like traveling with a stranger? We could cut the days. Less than seven if you prefer. We could see the sights. Mingle. Party. I would just prefer we establish a connection of sorts. Yeah?
If you haven't already booked your lodging. I highly recommend Generator Venice hostel. I stayed there over New Years and it was awesome! Very well maintained, friendly staff, pretty good location too.
Eurofag here, my gf is from a rural city nearby San Salvador.. We might decide to spend a month in august over there... has anyone ever been there? Any advice? What is the probability that I'm not gonna make it home alive?
What is the most friendly country for hunters to move to in europe. (Also the most gun friendly.) American here curious to see what the most gun friendly and hunting friendly country there is.
When I think hunting we are talking practical animals and varmints... hare, raccoons (do they exist in europe?), boar, deer, pheasant. Anything beyond that is stupid to hunt (bear, moose, etc...waste of time and endangering species.)
For practicality i can give you an idea what it is in the states. Midwestern states around the corn belt are very loose about... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1118200 Pole here and I can't say I'm surprised. There's quite a few hunters here, but more importantly, it's a hobby ridiculously overrepresented among politicians. This results in a strong lobby with a keen interest in keeping the law hunter-friendly.
>>1118169 I know that the Czech Republic and Switzerland are both pretty gun-friendly. I don't know about hunting laws there, but I know that their gun laws are a lot looser than anywhere else in the EU, I believe.
I'm gonna be in the country for about a week in June. Was originally planning on popping over the border to Kyrgyzstan, but since getting a visa for Kyrgyzstan is a pain in the ass I'm probably only going to be in Kazakhstan.
I'll fly into Almaty and will probably fly out of Astana a week later. Are the two cities any interesting? Where is the most interesting nature?
>>1116708 Most interesting nature is in the north east, but that's not really accessible so I suggest you spend your time in the southern parts.
Almaty is the best for a mix of nature, city and night life and a good point to do day trips from.
Check out the mountains behind the city (pic related) just a short bus trip from the city center, make a trip to Charyn Canyon, (the Grand Canyon Jr) , visit some of the lakes, eat some horse and drink some kumyz at the green bazaar and get drunk with some Kazakh men...

Aralsk is the former port of the Aral Sea, but the Soviets fucked up by draining most of it. Now it's creepy as fuck, like a desert with decaying buildings, but people still live there. Look for the abandoned airport.
From Aralsk, you can see Vozrozhdeniya Island, or just "Voz." It has an abandoned Soviet base there which was used to test biological warfare on. The official story is that all of the smallpox has been removed (there were several large rusting tanks), but many people doubt it; People have found piles of petri dishes abandoned on the ground....

Is there a website that allows you to view airfare prices for a certain ticket, depending on what country you live in? Or is that practice just a myth?
For example: I live in NYC. I want to buy a roundtrip ticket from NYC to London. When I go to a website like Expedia, the website logs that I have a NYC IP address and therefore gives me the rate of $1300 roundtrip. However, I get on a Argentina proxy, go back to Expedia, which logs my IP from Argentina and the airfare is now only $900
When I was booking a flight back to the United States from India, I noticed that, when I had my fares set to INR and my country as India, I was getting rates which were at least $100-$200 less than when I had USD and the United States set as my currency and country, respectively.
Planning to spend 3 days in eastern France with the gf over Christmas while visiting her family nearby in Germany for a few weeks, and looking for advice.
Looking most closely at Dijon, but also considering Besançon and Nancy. What can /trv/ recommend? Not looking to go much farther afield than those cities, so something within that vicinity would be perfect, if not those places. Will likely be going via train, but we may be able to borrow a car.
>inb4 Strasbourg; spend Christmas 2014 there. Awesome city, but looking for something new this time.
>>1120375 I've spent a lot of time in Switzerland and would prefer to check out France for this trip, but cheers m8.
We've gotta choose one, and are trying to figure out which is nicest/most interesting. I'd really like to enjoy some Burgundian food, good wine, beautiful architecture, and frankly spend time in a quieter French city.
Dijon is nice and can be visited in a day. If I were you I'd rent a car and spend another day in the vineyards between Dijon and Beaune and in Beaune itself (nice historical center, with a beautiful Notre Dame church and a 15th century hospital). Then on a third day you could either take a train to Auxerre, still in Burgundy which perfectly fits your description of a quieter French city with beautiful architecture. It has a very well preserved medieval center and two major gothic churches (St Germain Abbey and St Etienne Cathedral), with wall paintings from the 9th... Comment too long.

Im going to Europe un july and debating as to whether or not I should take my longboard with me. Im from a 3rd world latinamerican country so I easily use this thing on any hill I want and as a means of transportation and nobody gives a fuck but I hear about how Europeans are all strict and stuff regarding this type of thing so im worried I wont even be able tu use it to get from point A to point B which is what I've been planning. So my question is, for any of you who have experience, will I be able to use my longboard as a means of transport in Europe ( as in being able... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1119210 I actually used to think this about people before I started using one and even after buying one i'd ride it at night and such were i wouldnt be seen which is a lot dorkier. Eventually realized its kind of dumb to concern yourself with how you look to other people. Its a pretty fun way of getting around and couldnt recomend it more. once you get a feel for it and do some hills its hard not to fall in love with them
>>1119110 Not op but I recently moved to the UK on a work visa and managed to secure an apartment without a job by paying 6 months of rent in advance. It was a shit ton of money but I couldn't think of any other way for people to rent to my unemployed ass.

Do I need to inform the highway patrol if I'm going to bike from one state to another in the USA? I was told that I needed to state my intentions to the police. I checked google, nothing related was available.
First time here, sorta trying to plan a trip I could do as soon as possible, but am not sure of how to do it. First off, I'm a poor student looking to travel as cheaply as possible. That means hitchiking, camping, and whatever else free/cheap means of travelling there can be. I'm in Canada, in the East, and my plan would be to cross the country, most likely hitchiking the whole way to the west coast, and from there, hop on a ship to Asia.
Now here's my question. I, of course, have this maybe very romantic idea of showing to the docks and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm working in Toronto for the summer before finishing grad school in the states. My roommates here are pleasant enough, but they have their own lives going, so I don't have a ton of interaction with them.
How does /trv/ go about meeting people in a new city? Meet-up websites? Online dating?
I'm thinking of going to Asia for a few months. Thinking a country that is not rich (Like Korea or Japan because you need an actual college degree to teach in the busy cities.) I'm just looking for a country that has: Easy women, cheap cigs, good food, friendly people, someplace where they won't behead me. Thanks in advance! (Thinking Phillipines, Vietnam, Rural China.)
I hitched to Nouakchott last year. Hippies do it on a weekly basis, judging from all the French names I saw in hotel guestbooks who give their occupation as 'Artiste' Check out this badass girl's blog. She's giving it a better write-up than I could. http://lambpost.com/category/travel-2/africa/mauritania/
Is it dangerous? Not even slightly. Is it adventurous? Depends on your perspective. It's certainly unforgettable. I'd love to do it again and get to Dakar.
>I am inexperienced and have never left Western Europe. It's pretty necessary that you speak French. Otherwise the only thing I'd say is don't let anyone in morocco sell you cigarettes to smuggle south. Tobacco is actually cheaper the further south you go.
Guys I need some advice and I just get shit on in /int/. I'm thinking of transferring from my PhD program to another overseas. The countries I'm interested in (largely due to a high HDI and good research/science dev.) are: Norway, Japan, Australia, South Korea. Does anyone have experiences, pros/cons of living there as an English speaker (I would of course learn the language over time) but this is a 6-7 year commitment to finish my degree.
>>1119246 I assume you're from the USA? I can give advice on Australia; it won't be 6-7 years, they will want you done in 4. The PhD programs don't have the same amount of coursework or exams as the North American system because the bachelor degrees are more concentrated. You obviously need to study up more on the differences in the programs. You can get a medium term residence permit once you graduate, that's one reason why Australia is so popular with international students, but investment in science is... Comment too long.

Bro you are setting yourself up so hard for being one of those 45 year olds who gets to the end of his final post-doc contract @ 40k a year and then begins working at a grocery store when he can't get into industry.

>>1119114 >best places Depends if you're interested in cultural places with pyramids, festivals, food; or tourist places with nightlife, beach. Some places offer both, like Mexico City or Yucatan. Oaxaca and Chiapas are amazing, and coastal cities like Puerto Vallarta or Isla Xolbox are also cool. San Miguel allende and Guanajuato have pretty good night life with good girls, same for Queretaro and Puebla.
So yeah I basically lost my mind for a girl that I met in Italy, she's from Astana so I thought 'hell, why not going actually there?' . So there is still no plan, I dont know If while Im there I want to hop on a train and visit a bit more of the Country. Anyone been there? Any tips ? What should I expect? I read that if you fuck up even slightly you can easily get kicked off the country. Welp. [Also the girl looks 98% as pic]
Have a backup plan bro if it doesn't work out you will be sad and fly home. Had a similar case I went to see a girl and made a huge trip out of it so I didn't care after I was rejected and had a great time
you are both right, I will try to change my mindset and try to create a cool schedule of things to do, the girl will be (eventually) the cherry on the top. Ive read around that the capital its a pretty new city in his economical boom, so hopefully in the summer there will be party and stuff
