I have left the United States with the intention of deriving as much as possible from the inexpressibly rich South American continent. I have no more than my backpack, instrument, and 800 USD and am eager to see what will come from the trip. There is no real itinerary nor any plan for a return and unless physical necessity demands that I give it up, I will continue to explore this land, working when I have to, indefinitely.
I am starting in Peru because convenience makes it easy for me to do so and because I am interested in some of the traditional practices to be found... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm not an expert, but I don't know if this is the best time to go. Several South American nations are experiencing financial troubles (especially Brazil and Venezuela) so I'm not sure if that's going to hurt your ability to find jobs down there.
>>1098241 My blog is a little behind since I have not had much time to write. I'm already in Lima but from what I have learned from the people I've talked to, it's not too difficult to find work. I am certified to teach English.
An anon from /lit/ said that he took his brother to the DR and had him fuck a girl every night in order to save him from degenerating into a beta. I'm going to Santa Domingo this summer, how can I safely have a quickie with some pretty Dominican girls? I will probably bring a lot of money to spend for this purpose alone.
Hey guys, so I'm going to Costa Rica and I'm wondering what the deal is down there. Never been out of America and a bit worried about going to a country that different. Any Dos or Don'ts would also be helpful
>>1098016 just flew back from CR on Monday. It is pretty much America.Sure it has more dirt roads and the houses are built different, but they are similar. Do you speak Spanish? You really don't need to, but if you want to meet locals etc it is the way to do so.
How much of a threat does human trafficking pose to tourists in West Europe? My qt gf is going to esp on study vacation, which is great. And although I support the opportunity, I find myself more so questioning the trips risks.
However, the chance that she'll end up plowed by a conga line of Spanish guys who know how say vaguely romantic things in Spanish and know visiting student girls are the easiest prey of all is approaching 99%.
>>1097795 >However, the chance that she'll end up plowed by a conga line of Spanish guys who know how say vaguely romantic things in Spanish and know visiting student girls are the easiest prey of all is approaching 99%. This was pretty much what I was going to say.
Kidnapped, nah, that's not what you should worry about. Enjoy the trust you have while it lasts bro, because it's about to be drowned by litres and litres of Spanish and other European cum.
Sup /trv/, I am Brazilian and I and some friends are going to travel to the US, actually we do something crazy, we will drive from Orlando to Seattle. We chose the path south straight to San Francisco first, but beyond the Grand Canyon we do not know many "cool places" this way, you would suggestions of places to eat, visit, or just sit and watch the scenery? I search some blogs, but I have nothing concrete or that really cool. Also, if you have any tips on where to go or do not, is welcome.
>>1097733 This is kinda vague. There's beauty every inch of the Pacific coast, especially the Oregon coast. As for eating.. In-n-out is the best fast food once you make it West. I can't speak for the rest of the country but if I had the motivation I could go into a lot of fucking detail on Cali/Oregon/Washington
>>1097742 We, maybe, would take this rote, but we can change. We want some place to drink and eat well, and nice places to just seat and relax, one of my friends are almost dying by the cancer and he wanna just relax with us.
In 2 months I am moving from NC to WA and I need to fit everything I own into one of these. I don't have a tonneau/cap and I can't get one. Can anyone give me some tips or ideas or thoughts or whatever on the process? I was going to keep my valuables locked in the cab and only keep the bulky cheapshit stuff in the bed, covered by my mattress and some tied down tarps. is this pretty much okay or am I fucked? I also need to figure out how to keep my bicycle attached.
>>1098865 you could always camp, if you have a tent. Campgrounds usually cost about $15 a night, but can go up to $30 if it's a popular area. (I'd allocate $20 per night, on average, to be on the safe side).
Otherwise you're kinda out of luck. You probably can pull off of a less busy state road / rural area, but i'd just recline and sleep in your driver/passenger seat.
As for your bike, think about getting a bike rack.
One thought; consider getting a dash-camera (or even a decoy/fake... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1097706 The Los Angeles area has good areas and bad areas. Tourist-wise, the best attractions are themed attractions like Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc. Other good ones are Knott's Berry Farm and Six Flags Magic Mountain. The studio tour at the Warner Bros. Studio is suppsoed to be very good, and I have ehar that walking the Hollywood Walk of Fame is intensely boring and a waste of time.
>>1097433 Have you tried Google? This question comes up from time to time here, usually posed by somebody who thinks it will be a cheap way to travel. (It is not it generally costs more than air travel for a given route.) But many cargo ships have a stateroom or two for passengers that can be "rented," and last time this came up there were a couple of sites for booking them that came up on Google.
So I will have a small 4 days vacation in April. I'd like to go somewhere in Europe. I am not a partygoer, I never hang out at night so I don't care about nightlife. I mostly want to visit for history and museums. I also like nature (especially birdwatching) but I don't think 4 days are enough. I was thinking about Stockholm or Helsinki, but I wonder if it's the best to keep these two once I have enough time so I can drive around?
What's the best place to go for 4 days?
I will exclude these European cities because... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thinking about going to Singapore for a week (or two?) in June. What would I be getting myself into? I'm primarily interested in exploring new cities, photography, and culture. Don't know fuckall about Singapore aside from "don't break the local laws or you'll get your ass caned in front of the whole world."
Honestly, that's way too long. There is little culture in Singapore aside from consumerism and materialism. Sure, they have various museums and such, but it's a fabricated culture with little cohesion.
Use Singapore as a base, where you can travel to other SEA nations from. You'll be fine with 3-4 days in Singapore total, it's tiny, expensive and as mentioned above, not a whole lot to see or do except look at buildings or gambling perhaps.
Maybe I'm tainted, lived here for 20 years, currently in bangkok to escape and recharge.
I know I know it sounds childish and all. But sometimes playing a few games while waiting for your flight, at the hostel or just at a cafe just feels good. Certain games work very well when travelling. Some games actually bring lots of people together and bond. So which games you guys play when travelling? I usually play cards. The game gin is nice and quick yet not too random.
99 is a fun travel game with deck of standard cards. Various rules variations can be Googled, but it requires minimal concentration, is simple to learn and play, and you can add or lose players without messing things up
I'm planning on going to Mallorca next summer. Any tips on the hotel position in order to have a mix of good sea and nightlife? I'd like an hotel not to far from Palma De Mallorca. Could the area near Can Pastilla be a good choice?
Can Pastilla is at the end of the long boulevard, so basically the beach ends there and there's a marina. If I were you I would go a bit more to the east side of the boulevard, but not too far (El Arenal is rather shitty). Also mind that the part near Mega Park is entirely german tourists oriented.
Argie here. In my experience only leftists and nationalist idiots hate british people In fact most people won't give a fuck about it But just In case keep it to the touristic places and don't step In any poor town, they tend to be full of leftist
I need to "find myself" and to do this I want to go and live in the wilderness and prove to myself that I can survive. So does anyone know any good places to do this, where I can live off the land in complete solitude. If possible in a snow forest without bears.
hey /trv/ might be going to new york soon, I love big cities and want more than anything to see all the sights and learn and play and work it up in an international and multicultural and business city of the world like new york I might be going there for a few weeks or months please help me /biz/ what should I do I really want to live and see and be in and out new york
>>1097849 anyway, I'll let you know a few things I've learned from visiting. Firstly, to get a decent view of the city you don't have to pay a load of money to go up the empire state building, the world trade center, or the rock. In fact, I would never recommend going up the empire state building, cause then you wont see the empire state building. Of the three I would say the Rockefeller tower is the best, cause you are pretty much in the middle, you can see central park, the financial district, the esb, and pretty... Comment too long.

So I'm thinking of planning a trip around the country with an Amtrak USA rail pass for next year. They cost a little under $500 and are good for 8 different segments over a period of up to 15 days.
Does anyone have any experience specifically with a USA rail pass? Apparently they are only good for coach seats, so it certainly wouldn't be ideal, but 8 segments could possibly get me to Cleveland, DC, New Orleans, San Antonio, Los Angeles, Emeryville (near Oakland I guess) and Chicago, plus all the sights to see along the way - All for $500 (for...

>>1096708 Well, OP, amtrak has some more luxurious and scenic routes, such as the commuter rails of the northeast, the silver zephyr, VA to FL autotrain, and so on. Think about train travel (and the location of stations) being about the lousiest place in town crimewise maybe the same tier as Greyhound in lots of stations, and that you will want some money to get around and sightsee, like a taxi from this shit part of town. If this budget of $500 is the only real selling point, consider that I took American round trip from Miami-Chicago... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1096726 The money isn't really the selling point, I really wanna see the country up close. I never did it before because the roomettes are so expensive and I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend big money to only see a little bit. The idea of going to various parts of the country and seeing everything in between makes the trip sound more appealing.
The main routes i had in mind were the california zephyr and coast starlight (from LA to emryville mostly), but I also wouldn't mind seeing the capital and travelling... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/ it's been awhile since I visited this board.
Anyway, I'm planning a road trip for this summer from Virginia to California, but I want to campout at night rather than sleeping in my car or renting a motel. Are there any websites or do you all know of any good campgrounds that I can campout at? Any tips or warnings?
>>1097457 California has quite a few in the central northern areas, keep in mind that the ones inside Parks will usally not have hook ups (they're reserved for the people who volunteer to manage the area)
>>1096648 It's fucking embarrassing and cringe worthy, isn't it? Will your internet friends not believe that you've traveled somewhere unless you have photographic evidence?
In the Vatican, moronic tourists would spend two seconds looking at a piece of art that probably took decades to finish, snap a selfie, and then move on to the next one so they could get to McDonalds before closing time. No appreciation of what they were looking at whatsoever. Why bother traveling in that case?
Anyway I'm 1.7m 80kg and I'm near the border of the Japanese sizes. Clothes for me are LL and it goes up to LLL on normal stores. Maybe you can try using LLL or you can try the stores for foreigners selling american sizes but I imagine they will be considerably more expensive than in USA. I don't know how that would compare to your prices.
Absolutely. Never planned to go there but heard so many good things while I was in Mexico. The energy there is amazing and if you're into healthy living, hiking, nature, etc it has everything. The partying is as good as anywhere else but I'd highly recommend it
I can't figure out which option to use, but I'm leaning towards the train. I'm open to anything though, even backpacking. I want the best experience possible on the way there since CA will probably be so radically different and I've never been to a big city before. I also want to meet tons of people on the way.
I figured asking /n/ would be the best avenue here
hope you have a lot saved up. first+last+security deposit is going to run you at least $3-5k, with monthly rent of $1500 for a one bedroom apartment, even in the shitty parts of town. and you need a car to reasonably get around, or be prepared for a 10 minute drive to take 90 minutes with all the stops and transfers.
sorry to shit on your parade, just want you to be forewarned instead of waiting til you get here to get hit by sticker shock.
The general consensus is /trv/ is mostly white dudes traveling. My question is how does your skin color play out when you travel?. I've been pretty much all over Europe and i've been confused with everything from black to arab to N. African. But i'm a Hispanic (Dominican) from the US.
Some locals were friendly (Spain, Italy), others were kind racist (Germany, Czech,Slovakia) but didnt bother me, and some were curious (Montenegro, Serbia). So where are good countries to meet, hangout, and fuck locals as a non-white outside of the US and L. America?
Have any of you ever gone to a school in Latin America with an intensive Spanish program for any long period of time (6 months or more)? I'm interested in going since I need to learn Spanish quickly and also want a short break from monotonic North American life.
Please share thoughts, experiences, recommendations for different cities, countries, etc.
>>1095735 I did 5 days at Antiguena in Antigua and a couple of friends did a month there. I found it pretty helpful, my friends even more so. It cost me 100USD for the lessons and I paid an extra 65 for a homestay with three meals provided. The home stay was worth it, although some people complained about the meals, but I guess that depends on the family you stay with. They also offer a free excursion every afternoon which is quite nice.
I did feel that perhaps Antigua wasn't the best place to study Spanish as it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Though I'm not a spaniard I've lived most of my life in Barcelona. Apparently this place is really popular with tourists, so I thought I'll just offer some advice to any of you who plan on coming here or already are and want to know anything that isn't in your average tourist guide.
Pic related is my favourite tourist attraction (since I'm also an autistic /n/igger), a historic tram retaining it's original line from 1901 and original cars from 1906.
>>1095664 Oh shit you got me there, I'm not really much into music, so I've never been to any of those festivals. I can help you with anything around it, though I don't know much about the festival itself.
