Amazing. One of the highlights of my life. It's like a more sparsely-visited Disneyland for adventurous adults. We were climbing down the sides of mountains, jumping from cliff to cliff, exploring inside old ruins... 2 days is a decent amount of time to see the whole place, although I could do more. It's massive, and getting around is very tiring. Bear in mind that it's about a day's travel there and back.
>>1112536 It was great, really beautiful. We crossed the border from Eilat, Israel, went to Petra for the day and came back. The bus ride there is also really nice. There are a lot of kids there who beg for money, besides that it was a really nice trip.
Hey guys, bi-curios american fag here. So I want to visit Europe (not my first time) and this time I want to go to places with a strong gay scene. I want to do bars, saunas, maybe some cool clubs. Any suggestions on where should I go? Is Mikonos the best place? Are there any hidden gems? I heard Sitges is pretty openly gay, and awesome as well.
This summer I am going to spend two months in Inverness, Scotland as a medical elective student. I have no idea where to begin. Do you perhaps have any tips on living in Scotland, socializing with the Scottish, finding local attractions? Any advice would be highly appreciated.
>living in Scotland Get a good jacket, the summers consist of heavy rain and the winters of even heavier rain. >socializing Don't be an autist and you'll be fine, even then the type of humour means even the oddest of people fit in. Just go to the pubs near your uni with a few people from your course and you'll be fine.
As for stuff to see, historical stuff up north, shopping and stuff in the cities as usual. Hope you enjoy it son.
If you are brown what you want to do is head up to Nairn, just up the coast about a 10-15 minute drive. Look for some council flats, and some young people sitting around outside drinking buckfast, a tasty Scottish beverage, and a trademark for Scotland's welcome comity. Juts head over and say hello, and they will sort you right out.
Planning on traveling to Israel in a few months. Mostly Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Aside from the epic /pol/ memes, do you guys have any tips and/or must see attractions? I'm mostly interested in cultural/historical sites, but am open to other options.
Also, I've heard about the comprehensive security measures at Ben Gurion Airport. If anyone has some insight on what to expect at the airport, I would greatly appreciate it.
>>1112130 The airport is trying to find out if you are actually a tourist, can leave on your own cognition and funds, and if you'd get into trouble or create trouble while there, political trouble. They have known enemies, so they might ask you more than other countries. What you want to do is be ready and able to hand over an email and facebook password, and answer normal questions that any normal person could easily offer in response. Why would anyone worry about that? You shouldn't. Open-ended and vague travel... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi. I've been learning Spanish for quite a while now. I can read a lot of things in Spanish but my listening skills are shit as fuck. I think Hispanics talk super fast and I can only catch a few words. How to improve my Spanish listening skills?
Hey guys planning to go to Beijing and Hong Kong over 14 days in September, I have an itinerary already but i was wondering you guys had any tips or suggestions for staying and travelling in these places?
>>1111546 Don't eat sea food at the night markets if you don't want parasites as they often don't match health and safety standards. Watch out for pickpockets are what I can remember from the top of my head.
>BJ Not all Great Wall trips are created equal. Some of them are barely more than scams in which you'll be forced to stop off along the way at jade factories and Chinese medicine clinics (i.e. quacks who believe in magic). Also some destinations are overcrowded to the point of not being fun in tourist season. The "highest point" at Badaling, being the classic example. Do your research to make the Wall trip fun and not a bummer. I prefer the "wild wall" sections myself.

lets say if you were deported and banned from entering a country after committing a crime there. would it be theoretically possible to enter it using a new passport with a slightly different name, and a different photo?
for example, some asian / middle eastern people have first names that can be spelled in 1 word or 2 words. if they're able to get a different passport that stated their first name having a space in between or lack of, along with a different photo
then would they be recognized as a different person and therefore... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Seoul and Tokyo I think are extremely convenient and easy to use. I see some people sometimes say that they are confusing to use because those systems are so big, but honestly I think those people are retarded. Its literally just straight lines
As somebody from the UK, I thought Paris had surprisingly cheap public transport. However the metro is scary as shit sometimes
>>1109978 Tokyo can be confusing if you're trying to get there the fastest or for the least amount of money. LIterally everyone uses an app to determine that. But if you're a tourist and not concerned whether you get there 10 minutes earlier or if you spend an extra 150 yen its dumb easy. With very rare exceptions every single subway stop is reachable by at most 2 transfers. Its just find where you are, find where you're going and find the matching colors that come out of both.
How many of you have been to Toronto? Ive been a few times, but not since i was too young to explore on my own and truly get to know the city. Im incredibly keen on going back, the city has a feel to it that i cant really explain. What are some must sees, must do's, and general travel information about TO that I wont find elsewhere online? I need to hear it from you.
>>1108922 Lived in Toronto for almost 4 years. This guy doesn't have a clue.
There is lots to do in Toronto - look up Torontoist, BlogTO, etc for things from food festivals, concerts, good bars (Pravda is a fav of mine, old soviet styled bar with great vodka and decent prices).
Kensington Market is always good in spring/summer. The distillery district is a great time with patio bars and museums/niche stores.

Hi /trv/ I'm going to the Philippines in about 40 someodd days. I'm going to be there for little over a month, and I was wondering if anyone has flown from Manila to Bangkok, and was wondering if the prices of tickets was cheaper in country, then in the US.
>Is a girl >Was offered an exchange scholarship to go to southern Spain for 2 weeks >Will go to Spain before study abroad session and stay behind to travel to other places in Spain with my peers >8 of us will travel to Spain (probably Madrid) in advance and all 8 of us happen to be girls >Has an online friend whom I have been talking to for two years who lives 2 hours drive away from Madrid >He is 18, male, comes from a shitty town with a lot of potheads (although he claims he is not into drinking and smoking weed) >He is stronger than me and can easily outrun me if something bad happens >I am a girl visiting a online friend in a foreign country where I only speak the local language to the level of A2 (CEFR) and he is a fit guy in his homeland - he has the upper hand of the situation if something bad happens >Most of the girls in my group do not even speak Spanish >I don't think things can get even more dangerous unless we meet in some developing country >Most likely we will meet in a public area with a lot of tourists and passers by in Madrid and I will meet him with my peers (i.e. not alone)
1. Is this very dangerous? How to stay safe? Intuitively-speaking, I know that nothing bad will happen if we meet in a public area as a group, but I can't help but feel somewhat uncomfortable with this idea. Everyone in my group is a girl - I would feel somewhat safer if there was a guy or two in our group. I don't wanna be killed in Europe.
2. Should I tell the other girls who are travelling with me that he is an online friend? I don't want them to be scared and I don't want them to try to kick me out of their group because they see this as dangerous.
>>1101972 3. Should I tell my parents about this? I get the sense that they will not like this (every parent had a strict no-online-friends rule for their younger kids). I posted about this issue on a forum with an older target audience and someone replied how I should stay safe by only meeting my online friend online. Many people liked that post. My parents are also if a very bad mood and they've recently been talking about divorce - the last thing they want to hear is their daughter meeting some online friend in Spain.
I'm a dude, but IME Spanish guys can be a little aggressive/touchy feely, but not rapey, and not even willing to put in a a whole lot of effort in general. Maybe it's the culture, siestas, or prostitution.
Are you sure he is real, have you interacted with him via webcam, etc?
It's fine if you meet at a public place, it's Spain, not El Salvador or something. You meet him, you see if he's okay, you leave with your friends. If you don't feel comfortable being alone with him then don't, it's a matter of common sense, really. Depending on your age I don't think telling your parents there's "a guy you've met online" is important, unless you decide to go out with him alone or something, and even then you don't need to mention the online part to get them more worried than they should be. And of course you should tell your friends. Of course this applies only if you're sure the guy is real. This seems common sense to me, but I'm a guy and never really had to worry about things like that, but if you're a girl, especially under 18 (hypothetically speaking because you can't be here if you're under 18) and you met a guy online...of course it can be something you don't expect. Just use your head and be with your friends when you meet him.
It's quite expensive. If you want a full meal for breakfast lunch and dinner then you're looking at about 150kr a meal at the minimum if you go somewhere. If you want a little more as to not starve you're definitely looking at something like 225-250kr a meal at a better place.
lot of people pack lunch here. the brown bag tradition thing.
>>1112648 If I was taking my grandmother on a trip there, here's what I would do if I had 6-10 days... Book my flights to fly into Dublin, Fly out of Shannon. (use Delta) Spend 1.5 days in Dublin then pick up a rental car (something high enough to see over hedges to keep grandma calm from the near head-on collisions on blind curves) and do the drive vacation for the Southern half of the country. In Dublin, I'd do the cathedral visits, Guinness Tour, live music or literary pub stop or two, see the Book of Kells. Then... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Germany is very "trailer Campy" friendly. If you want an authentic old town experience why not visit Celle. You will see only a handful of tourists no more than that. If the weather is great why ot travel to the nice islands in Northern Netherlands
>>1112567 I would recommend this thread: >>1096186 It's world wide but also has other pretty good recommendations in europe within your driving distance that are mostly nature and old towns/villages related plus you won't find many tourists there.
Anyway my two cents: September can be tricky as you might experience the first snow in the alps/pre alps regions and storms around the eastern and northern sea cost if you're unlucky.

Anyone on /trv/ use Google Translate consistently? I just started using it and the text replacement feature is absolute fucking voodoo, it's the first thing I've seen in a long time that made me realize we're living in the future.
I'm definitely going to use it when I visit smaller cities in Europe. Will people think I'm weird asking them to speak into my phone?
Used it all over Europe and North Africa. Better than nothing, but still pretty bad. In places like Poland when I tried t use it they just look at you like your straight up retarded. Also in some small villages people couldent read, so the GT was useless.
Hello! Next week I'm going to Heidelberg for 4 days with my girlfriend to visit a common friend. Is there anything interesting to see? Interested in nature, gastronomy and art mainly, open to anything though.
We thought about renting a car so we have freedom to go to Berlin or a natural park.
>>1111982 The Hauptstrasse downtown is really fucking cool, if you're into shopping. Lots of modern shops all built into the old style buildings. The bridge and the castle are all right there too. The castle is nice, and gives you a great view of the city. There are also boat tours you can get down the river, where you stop and can explore several other smaller castles. There's also a Zoo across the river in Handschusheim. Downtown Heidelberg in general is just really fucking neat.

I'm on a RTW trip, currently thinking about heading to South America in July to learn Spanish for 1-2 months. I took a couple years of Spanish in HS and haven't used it since, so I want to learn enough to hold conversations in my travels around S America. Where would you recommend doing this?
While I'm learning I'd like to hang out with the local girls at night, so somewhere where they love gringos would be best.

Me and a friend of mine want to visit Ireland. We want to get to know the culture, we want to drink for small money, we want to drink in a variety of pubs, we want a day-trip to Dublin, but we don't want to live directly in Dublin, because we don't want leprechauns around every corner. We want the to experience the real Ireland.
>>1111200 Gotta be on the move OP. You pick up a rental in Shannon or Dublin, travel the south half of the country, new town every night..experience the towns with dinner and pubs, drive and explore some ruins, churches, castles, during the days. It's pretty inexpensive outside of Dublin, and you'd be done with Dublin at about 1.5 days.
The single supplement is a deal breaker (one person still has to pay as if two people are cruising). But if you are a couple, it's a great deal.
Get the cheapest stateroom in the best ship you can afford. You are stuck on a boat with these people, you want them to be civilized.
Driving to a port of call is a great money saver. Might not be an option for most people.
Either go on a small luxury boat that visits upscale ports of call, or get a room in a mega ship where you don't even have to visit ports. All the major cruise lines visit the same... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is the only way to travel for more than a month or two to be a rich kid?
Is it doable, in any way, if you're poor af?
I'm sick and tired of hearing and reading stories about people that woke up some day and decided they were going to spend their next year travelling wherever and imagining all of them being wealthy enough. There must be a way.
Going to Bangkok next week and will be spending 8 days there with absolutely no plans. I've never been to Thailand before and the stuff on TripAdvisor looks a bit dull. I'm really interested in seeing more than just shopping malls and weird touristy temples. A day trip to somewhere interesting would be great.
>>1106348 A day trip to the old capital of Ayutthaya might be interesting--can do it by boat, and the boat trip is enjoyable by itself. The fancy one day tour from the Oriental Hotel (worth having a drink in, if you want to pretend to be Somerset Maugham) is the plushest, but there are dozens of operators with similar offerings.
You might also consider a day trip to Lopburi, another old capital that is now most famous for being completely overrun with monkeys.
