Hey /trv/ I'm planning to live in a hotel. Is there anything I should know before going throughout with this? Pros and cons? I'll be traveling a lot, so I want to become accustomed to living in a hotel.
>>1109622 I lived in a hotel for 4 years during my childhood. This inspired me to take up tourism as my career bc we lived in a Caribbean hotel. I loved that hotel so I want to take up a job at a hotel and live in one bc I loved the atmosphere
Will I be able to survive in Spain with my current level of Spanish?: Hola. Voy a viajar a España este verano. Quiero hablar con los españoles. Me quedaré con una familia anfitriona y quiero comunicar con ellos. Algas familias no hablan inglés. Piensas que esto es posible? Puedo sobrevivir en España con mi nivel actual de español. Muchas gracias.
>go to only one city in a state/region >act like you've experienced the whole country Do any of you guys do this and if so, why? Even in small countries/US states there are lots more experiences that are outside the big major attractions. Don't get me wrong, there's still plenty to do in the city, but please tell me at least that I'm not the only one skeptical of things like the "where have you been" map threads.
Yea so I've decided I don't want to have a career or be a wageslave (no offense to who decided to go the corporate way).
This means I need to find alternative ways to make money. My past professions : -Shit jobs like administrative helper, etc -poker player for 2 years -muay thai and jiu jitsu teacher (not a black belt in any of them, though I'm good at teaching) -whoring in chaturbate
My next stupid plan is to go to Asia (China or Japan, maybe Cambodia/Vietnam) and find a "White guy job", such as fake businessman, fake teacher,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Well, you're right about one thing -- it is a stupid plan. "White guy jobs," as you call them, disappeared a long, long time ago (and when they did exist, they were extremely rare). Fake businessmen get beaten up and/or put in jail, fake teachers get fired very quickly, and nobody pays men for sex except for desperate gay men. IOW, enjoy your AIDS.
After months of work I'm flying to Alaska! Decided to live there a while back and so here I am finally in the airport! Today is the day! I plan to set down my roots and never move again! I'm so excited and this seems to be the board for this topic! The lines are so long here!
>>1109270 Who the fuck gives a shit what any country thinks? It's all politics anyway. And I'm curious which countries would actually recommend "not going". >>1109269 What? >>1109267 Turkey is 100% safe. I didn't know it was a big interrailing country though, as most people use busses or fly from city to city. Are you planning to do the route to Tatvan/Van? If so, I can only recommend the Van...

>>1109413 >Following thread. Planning a trip myself. How do I find a hotel? The usual, from airbnb to halfprice to tripadvisor. Just decide if you are going to drive around (you should), and then pick your neighborhood based on what is convenient for the drive or not drive plan.
OP, as far as Mia Bch is concerned, lincoln road is your central spot really. Use the "New Times" on all the restaurant and store newstands to know what is going on where on any night. Use yelp or eater... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
back in the day there used to be lockers in grand central. this no longer exists because terrorists win and nyc is a police state. the only places that do this that i know of are outside the baseball stadiums (not near central park) and only right before and during games.
i dunno google "goddam locker near central fucking park" and you might have something
Hello everyone, I will be moving to jacksonvill in the following months, I just wanted some insight and advice as far as stuff to do, I'll literally try anything , I hear not much in jacksonvill but what about the other cities?
>>1109090 Marine here as well. Well you can get some hiking, but be forewarned, it won't be the hills you are used to in California. There are some good trails on base, and plenty through the Croatian National Forest, including the 20 mile Neusiok Trail. I will post more when I transition from a mobile device.
Have any of you /trv/ellers done the Big Balkan Roadtrip? I'm planning to do it this year and I wanted to know your opinion.
- How was it? Did you like it? - What about the trip was the best, and the worst? Did any kind of inconveniences happen along the trip? - Which advice would you give about things to harness the most during the trip? What about things to avoid doing? - Are the Balkans affordable? How much did you end up spending overall? - What are good souvenirs to purchase? Did you end up spending money on other stuff you needed along the trip? -... Comment too long.

This time last year I took a trip starting in Central Europe and travelling through the Balkans as far as Montenegro. It wasn't a road trip as such because I didn't have a car, but I did travel by bus so maybe there are some similar aspects. It'll be easier for me to answer specific questions based on that, but I'll try to give some answers to the general questions you listed.
My favourite places were Plitvice Lakes in Croatia and Lake Bled and the Vintgar Gorge in Slovenia. Both really beautiful, if a little bit touristy. I regret not going a bit... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1109022 I'm from Newcastle, so feel free to ask away. The nightlife is very good, and there are lots of great pubs. The area of the river is really pretty, with some nice bridges and some of the architecture in the centre is nice, especially on Grey Street. If it's your thing, there's an art gallery called The Baltic which has a lot of modern stuff (sometimes it's good, sometimes it's shit, but it's worth a visit). What else do you like, or what else would you like to know?
Hey everybody, I have a question for you all and for everyone who likes traveling. I'm an Italian student and this summer I'm going in the USA for a month to study English and have some fun. So far I can decide if going to LA or to Santa Barbara. I'm more likely to choose LA but I'd like to hear some opinions. Also I'm 19.
Calling all Ukrainians: Is it safe to travel to the western parts of Ukraine? Kiev, Lvov, Odessa etc? I'm a British Citizen with a British passport, but I was born in Ukraine. I don't have a Ukrainian passport and I'm not sure if I have Ukrainian citizenship. It does say of course in my passport that I was born there. Is it safe for me to travel there? I used to go frequently, but that was before maidan. Haven't been there since
I should specify: I don't mean safe as in safe from military activities like in the East, but rather safe as in not getting stopped in the streets because I speak Russian or getting held up at the borders because I was born there and getting conscripted or something
>>1108824 Yeah.. It's pretty much safe out there. Lots of russian speaking tourists in Lviv. Noone really cares about it (And Odessa is almost 100% russian speaking city). And nope, no conscription at the borders Western Ukraine is basically the same as it was before
Guys, I haven't flown overseas in 6 years on account of living in AUSTRALIA. I'm going to Europe this June, but whenever I go searching for tickets I can only find south east Asian airlines offering tickets that I can afford and it makes me really anxious. I would prefer to fly with Qantas or Emirites but I just can't spend 3k on tickets.
Do you guys feel anxious flying with budget airlines, or do you just not give a shit? How do you deal?
>>1108774 Budget airlines still have to abide by the same safety standards if that's what you're worried about. The only difference is in service, it's usually shittier. I fly budget airlines all the time cause I'm a cheap jew but I don't have big expectations for flying, I just want to use them to get from point a to b.
No, not really. As a fellow ausfag, I get worried for maybe 30 mins after the plane takes off, then I'm just bored and nauseous for the next 8-14 hours. You need to become a bit of a nihilist for that flight.
Singapore Airlines is top-tier, or at least I thought it was last time I flew with them. Thai isn't bad either - I flew with them through Lufthansa, and the Thai flight crew and service was a lot nicer than the Germans (the Lufthansa flight from Bangkok to Frankfurt didn't even have TVs.)
Related - Qantas is shit and far, far too overpriced for what you get.
What's the best way to get from Helsinki to Tallinn? I know it's by ferry but which service is the best? For some reason this issue is causing me a lot of anxiety. There are several different services and a lot of them have bad reviews or are too expensive. I almost booked with a service called Linda Line but backed out after the reading of their excessive and unexpected cancelations, not to mention their extremely sketchy payment system for there website.
Anyways what is the best way to get between the two cities? Is booking ahead necessary or could I pay at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thanks for the reply, I think I've decided on Eckerö Line. They are cheap and they sail directly from city center to city center.
Since I have your attention, there were a few other questions I was hoping you could answer. What is best way to travel in-between the baltic countries. After Tallinn I will be going to Riga and Finally Vilnius. I've heard the train systems in the Baltics are not quite up to the standards of other European countries, however I've read that buses are cheap and... Comment too long.

While they are convenient between getting from city to city, it's true that the current train lines don't have many connections and they certainly don't connect between the baltics at the moment, those plans are still underway.
Buses are a good choice if you want to save some mad dosh. Luxexpress and Ecolines are the two buslines you can check out, sometimes they have capital to capital transfers for pretty much pocket change. Superbus is another budget company that I use to go to Tallinn sometimes for like 2€, and word went around that they're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm looking to bring my PC from my home in the UK to where I'm going to be staying in Canada for a few years, whats the best method to get my PC there? Should I send it by mail or is it feasible to bring it in a checked bag?
>>1108638 Because they throw your stuff around from the second you check it in till baggage claim no fucks given. Depending on which airport you fly to the ground crew might throw it from the plane or drop it a few times to/from the plane...
I'm a guy from Holland, 19 years old and I don't really know what the fuck to do with my life. After may I'm graduating and I don't wanne rush into college before I have seen more of the world and know what I really want to do. after my exams, I wanne work for a few months and save some money. So I can travel around the end of September. I can't really find someone to travel with and going alone seems lonely too. As for a destination, I just thought about touring Europe but I'm up for other things as long as it doesn't cost too much. I'm interested in traveling with both male and female. I'm gay so ladies might be more comfortable traveling with me but honestly, I'm not fucking interested in anything romantic, so if your a straight guy I promise I won't rape you and we could travel just fine ;-). send an email if your interested to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was actually thinking of making a post like this because I'll be traveling alone and thought it might be good to meet up with some anons. But seeing an actual post like this reminds me I'm on 4chan and going solo is the better option.
I'd really like to go visit Greenland this or next summer when it's warmer there and just explore the whole place like the nice little villages, the islands, icebergs, glaciers, ice caps and everything there. I'm just really fascinated by the place and how people live there and I'd really like to explore as much as the country as possible and I want t camp and hike while I'm there. I know it's really expensive there but that's not an issue since I have the money but I need to make the time.

Olive21? It's good, but my gf and I are trying to find a different place. Olive21 is crazy and very good for just pure action, but we'd like to find something that has more space and actually has a legit bar and lounge area.
If anyone has any good couple kissa (or happening bar) recommendations I'm all ears.
You mean how much will you spend? On average? I live here so I've never strictly experienced Tokyo just as a visitor/tourist, but I would say it really varies depending on what you're into. Obviously if you're a clubbing/nightlife person you will spend significantly more than someone who is not.
The whole "Japan is really expensive" thing is somewhat of a meme, it's pretty reasonable compared to big international cities like New York and London. But an expense that will add... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I will be embarking on a trip to London in a couple of months. No car will be available, but the London Underground seems fit for my daily commute (Marble Arch-Liverpool Street). Anything I should be aware of? Muggers? Buggers? Gypsies? Giant spiders? Victorian ghosts? Eurabian suicide bombers? Her Majesty dancing about in underoos during the five bongers? Anything I should be mindful about when interacting with brits? Also, what can you eat for cheap in London?
I worked in London and took the underground every day. I don't know where are you from but it's clean enough, I haven't seen any gypsy so far, probably because you need to use your ticket (or oyster card) for BOTH entering and exiting.
Unlike Paris. Damn, the London Underground is like heaven if you're from Paris.
Hey /trv/, First time poster here looking for advice on traveling to Geneva. I plan to stay for 13 days (12 nights) and was wondering if there are cheaper options from housing (eg. temporary room mate, etc...) to circumvent the hotels. Also, any suggestions of where to visit? I'll most likely be traveling solo. This is my first unaccompanied trip to Europe, although I have spent quite a bit of time in Bulgaria and Eastern Turkey. Any general tips/suggestions are also welcome!
>>1108188 I gave it some though and decided I'm just gonna be traveling around Europe. I'm going to Spain first, then Geneva for a couple days, then probably Bulgaria and Turkey. I'll finish it off with a flight to Bahrain to visit some friends. I'm probably just going to be training around in Europe since I have a Bulgarian passport, too.
>>1108482 Like the other anon said, don't waste more than a day in Geneva. Seriously. You will get bored very fast. There are plenty of options nearby, you can easily take a train from Geneva to anywhere else in Switzerland, or to France, even Italy or Germany.
Ameriburger here, I am heading to Montreal this summer for a week and a half starting June 26th and will be there during Canada Day. If I knew Quebec's national holiday is on June 24th I would have booked during that time, but it's okay with me
I'm definitely checking out La Ronde since I like roller coasters and going up to Mount Royal, but is there anything else I should check out? What foods should I eat, what bars or clubs should I go to? What is Canada Day like in Montreal and what things I should do on that day?
I might also take a day trip... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1108202 Because what's the point of a /trav/ board of you can't get advice when some fagggot retard says to just google. If that's everyone's answer in every thread, then /trav/ should be deleted forever
