I'm Dutch, and for a project I'm trying to collect opinions from foreign people who have visited The Netherlands. I'm interested in what you guys did here, why, where you stayed, which places you visited, what you thought of the Dutch as a people, what you liked, what you hated etc etc etc. Help me out and let loose!
I did a short trip by car to Netherlands and Belgium recently. Been to Amsterdam, Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Maastricht. I've slept in a tent in Amsterdam and then rented bungalows on various campings 20-30 km away from the major cities. Moved strictly on foot through the cities, it's tiring but the best way to get the feel of a city. Random observations: - piss easy to communicate in English, pretty much everyone speaks it well - the bikes are a pain in the ass and you constantly have to watch out for them. Impressive how popular they are though. -... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So, me and my girlfriend are going to Amsterdam in January 2016. We have flights and hotels booked that provides breakfast and we want to go to the sex museum etc explore a bit and get high a lot. No drinking.
How much would we be looking at to spend a day on just food and travel/ attractions? We have budgeted £300 for 5 days.. Does anyone if this is enough?
Sooo... >I travel in my huge awesome van. >The engine and transmission BOTH fucking went last Friday. >I'm stuck in Newport News, Virginia for at least a couple weeks to get them both replaced. >$8k in the hole. Anyone wanna get a beer?
>>1041554 So I always wondered about those. Do you see any savings compared to someone who takes a compact car and stays in cheap motels? It seems like those camper vans burn through fuel fast and have a lot of maintenance involved. Plus you still have to pay if you want to use a campground.
I'm an American and will be travelling to Europe for the first time. I'll be visiting Germany and France and will be driving a rented car the whole way. Was just wondering, do I need health insurance? I already purchased insurance for the vehicle, but didn't know whether it was advisable to purchase a separate health plan just in case I get sick or injured.
Yes. It's pretty great actually. Maybe not KSA itself, depending on your lifestyle. But the money you make, and you just go to UAE, Bahrain, or fly to Thailand for a few hundred bucks for your debauchery, the same way the Saudis do.
Hello, First of all, i am new to the /trv/ board so please forgive me if i make any mistakes.
I have met a girl from Kuwait which was on holiday to my country (netherlands). She asked me to visit her in Kuwait, but i have doubts if it is safe, and how the general acceptation is there from the population.
I would be traveling with Qatar airways.
Her family won't be a problem because i already met her sister and her dad and her mum know about this and invited me over.
Is it safe to travel to kuwait? Is it safe for a non-muslim to be there... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Kuwait is safe to travel but no public displays of affection or allowed and alcohol can be hard to come by. Don't get me wrong, it's not impossible, but it's technically illegal so you are dealing with a black, prohibition, type market and all that entails.
I'd suggest, after meeting the fam, take a flight over to UAE or Bahrain for more wesern style fun. There is shoping there but even Kuwaitiis go to the aforementioned destinations for leisure. It's funny being on a plane, they announce they have left Kuwaiti airspace, and there's a long... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1040321 Go to a national park, or as many as you can. Bring bear spray and possibly mosquito nets. I've heard there are also rafting opportunities. Alaska is my dream trip, Gates of the Arctic National Park in particular. If you go let us know how it is
I live in Kasilof, Alaska, and if you've never been up here I'd recommend visiting Homer and possibly Seldovia or taking the ferry to Kodiak which is rather inexpensive, Denali National park is pretty cool I suppose, Kennicott mines are interesting if you're into historical mining landmarks and what not, Seward and Valdez are both beautiful areas but there isn't shit there really aside from like camping and boat tours which I recommend doing the one in either seward or valdez where they take you right up to the edge of the glacier, pretty epic watching massive...

There is no such thing as a "Real Traveller" as travelling is a different experience for everybody and everybody gets something different out of it.
Having done package holidays, Villa rentals, city breaks and backpacking I can say that for me, nothing even comes close to the authenticity, the raw experience of backpacking, how can you really get a taste for a culture when you're surrounded by tour guides and 100+ German OAP's clad head to toe in Berghaus and North Face jackets being shows some pre-fabricated monument that features on the cover of...

I had the "real traveler" discussion with a friend. She is a rich girl, who's been a lot of places and her mindset is like thisVV
>I can say that for me, nothing even comes close to the authenticity, the raw experience of backpacking, how can you really get a taste for a culture etc etc...
Now I will certainly agree that going it independently, exploring on your own, etc are all better than packaged tours and stuff, but the idea of being a "real traveler" is still just a snooty privileged clueless person mindset.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I'm going to study in Australia for 3 years. I'm going to get an apartment in Sydney near that weird bridge. I haven't been outside my own country for 8 years, and I'm a countryguy so cities has never been a such big part of my life, so I got some questions for you:
>What should I think of (Doing/Preparing/Etc). >Good places in Sydney or Australia as whole? (I like mountains). >How much job are there? I'm allowed to work 20% of the week there. Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>How much job are there? I'm allowed to work 20% of the week there.
You can get an illegal job in a 7 11 store, but you will get exploited. Also anything in hospitality is good, try getting a kitchen hand job in a hotel or a large restaurant. The larger the establishment the more protection you will have from the law. >Any of you guys who lives there? I live in Melbourne, so my advice on Sydney is limited.
Is it possible to travel the world with no money at all? I hear stories about people going around with next to no money and doing perfectly fine but I can't imagine myself doing it. I'd prefer to save at least $20K just to make sure that I've always got some safety net.
some countries are real assholes about the (proof of) funds you have in order to enter the country and get the visa/visa entry. It's a roll of the dice, but you often see filthy backpackers getting pulled up for it, particularly ones that thought they could work whilst there.
Been to plenty of countries that list "proof of funds" as an entry requirement and I've never been asked to show mine. I think you're fine as long as you don't look like a miserable vagrant and are from a first-world country.
How hard would it be to just pack up and go? My friend and I want to leave. I'm 20 and she's 19. We live in small town West Virginia and I have family in Colorado Springs, Colorado that I want to go stay with. Finding work here is hard (Even though I just got a job as a pharmacy cashier) and we both aspire to reach out and travel across the country. For me, it would be a place I'm moving to but for her, it might be a place to stay for a while. There isn't much here, and we want to broaden our horizons. The only problem is that she has lawsuit money... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
# of Miles traveled / # of miles your car gets per gallon * $ per gallon of gas
With 2 people driving you will only really need to stop to sleep once. Plus some money for food but you can bring that with you.
Its risky to leave for a road trip like that if you are not sure about your car. If you break down in some little town and have to get towed off the freeway they are going to overcharge like crazy. 4 tires for a small car like that is going to be $300+.... Comment too long.

>>1039843 The job market is one aspect. My dad is the general manager of a convenience store chain, so if anything I'll be able to get something, even if it is a cashier. We don't really have very many friends, I only have my mother here and she cant really afford to take care of me, and aside from my dad recently moving, all we've known is rural West Virginia. I know that we would be taken care of if we got there, the only thing is getting there.
Didn't see any sort of qtddtot on the catalog so I thought to make one to get some of my questions answered. I don't usually browse /trv/ and only have traveled a bit in the past. But recently I have been gaining interest in going solo, starting with around the US before I go on out to other countries. I want to pick some of your brains out there and learn a few safe ways to do things. I am pretty clueless with traveling. Are there any safety precaution in traveling solo other than using common sense? Any sort of trusted and affordable places to stay for solo traveler?
I heard good things about hostels from /trv/. I've never been to one so I don't know exactly how it works. Where would you keep your stuff? just as close to you as you can? Or do they have some sort of locker for personal use?
