60K miles on AA will take you to Europe and back.

Knowing nothing about you, I say fly to Glasgow, and tour the west coast of Scotland by train, bus, and ferry.

Parque Warner Madrid, the 2nd-best amusement park in Spain, is located in the area. Several big roller coasters and what not. Parque de Atracciones de Madrid is another big one in town, but its rides are not as big (though, tickets will probably be cheaper).

Hello /trv/

I'm going to spend ~2 months in Buenos Aires for an internship and I'm looking for housing. What is the best option (easy to find,cheap,etc)?
What are the prices like?
I would be looking for either a room in a shared appartment, a homestay, a studio, depending on what the costs are.

Other infos about the city are also welcome

Keep your dollars intact.
Argentina's economy is a fucking mess.
Make/get a friend there so that you can change your money for the unofficial/street rate. You'll get a bigger bang for your bucks.

I found that Sydney seems to be more popular the older you get, both my parents and grandparents have been to Australia too, my grandparents much preferred Sydney, my parents preferred Melbourne by a little bit, and i personally liked Melbourne way, way more.

Sydney has the big sights, Harbor bridge, Opera House, that big tower thing, close surf beaches, monorail, the harbour ect. I found what Sydney was missing...

Where to go?

Zurich/Appenzell/Zermatt/Lucerne/Bern

Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald/Wengen/Murren/Gimmelwald

Geneva/Lausanne/Gruyere

After a lazy amount of research I've come up with these three areas.

Any opinions or suggestions?
I know most people will probably suggest skipping Zurich and/or Geneva, but they are conveniently located and accesss into the country by plane and international rail.

Varies at least a bit by airline. But the general rule is that they will cut you off if you're noticeably drunk, or if there's any risk you will become disruptive. But it's pretty rare in first. I had a very nice flight attendant apologize for not being able to leave me with the bottle once, but she came back to give me at least five or six cocktails before I passed out.
>>
>>1088402
Depends on the airline.

Thai airways gave me glasses full of whisky, no ice, until I could barely walk. Korean air actually cut me off after 2 beers and told me "I think you are getting too drunk, sir". I think it has everything to do with the culture of the country the airline is based out of.

Sometimes you can bring your duty free liquor right on board. If so, just do that. Saves you and the flight attendant the trouble, and surely 750ml of hard liquor is enough for you, no?

Sup /adv/, I'm thinking of moving to Korea because it would be interesting to do, and the people seem great. I do music production as a living, so I'm basically at my computer at home all day, it gets boring so I want to find new, interesting things.

The language barrier is not a problem, I was already learning Korean and Hangul so that's ok.

But after reading a bit in it, it seems that houses/apartments are fucking expensive in Korea, especially in Seoul, where I'd like to go. I'd rather not live in some shitty place, would it be a good idea?

I'm really interested -- why do so many people on /trv/ (unfortunately, you're hardly the only one) think that they can just pack their bags and move to any country they feel like? If you're looking to legally emigrate your choices are (a) be rich, (b) have a legitimate job offer with a company willing to sponsor you for a visa, or (c) marry a local. That's pretty much it.

Hey guys, thought I'd just start a conversation on best spots for camping, I'm starting with pic related, Acadia National Park in Maine.

Nice campgrounds, good hikes, and there's free busses that go from place to place around the whole area. I'd highly recommend. Where are your favorite spots?

Bonus question: how do you guys camp? I pitch an old fashioned A-frame tent, cook as much as I can on the fire, but also use a small backpacking stove to fry eggs and such. I like to bring a good bottle of wine and a cigar if allowed.

I've seen a lot of the world, and I've never been anywhere with a better view. Go to sleep in pea-soup fog, grumpy that you couldn't even catch a glimpse of the Storr; then in the morning poke your head out of the tent flap and see the sun rising above Applecross, water reflecting the...

Yea, avoid camping next to streams where the fucking midges swarm so thick it looks like someone's taken a can of black spray paint to the outside of your rainfly. Enjoy staying up till midnight squashing the 600 that followed you in.

Is it safe to go to Egypt now?

It's probably only a good idea if you are part of a large tour group and don't venture outside tourist-friendly zones. It is a dangerous place especially for rich infidel Westerners, but it's balanced by the fact that they need Western tourist dollars to keep the economy afloat. So, there will be some presence of security.

Personally, I will not visit any country with a UN HDI rank below 0.800 out of 1.000 (Egypt's score is 0.690).

>>
>>1088264

Yes.

Believe it or not, the Egyptians you meet everywhere will be very good to you, the reason being that their income relies on tourists, and at the moment there aren't many tourists around so the few there are are treated very well to try and encourage tourism to come back.

Some exceptions of course, like Sinai and the Libyan boarder, dont go there because they have lots of Islamic terrorists that want to kidnap you and behead you after your family pays them the ransom.

Just keep up...

Is it legal for a Virginia resident to take a trip to Washington DC and purchase marijuana. I know it is illegal if I get caught with it in VA but what I'm wondering is if they will sell it to me knowing that I'm not a resident of DC.

So long as you meet the age restriction requirements, you can purchase marijuana in states where it is legal regardless of where you are from. Just dont bring it back.

The bigger question is whether you can even buy it in DC. My understanding is that although they legalized it, there was no plan to tax and sell it, and Congress has withheld funds to implement the law. I am not from DC though so it could be different now.

If you want to do marijuana tourism i would strongly recommend Denver or Seattle...

Hi.

Travel insurance question.

I looked at World Nomads policy ( https://www2.worldnomads.com/policy_wording.aspx?pid=4b477ca754c1478bbf5c760eb2d1931d ) and they seem to have a an excess of 70€ which is huge! It means that if I go to a doctor and I end up paying less than 70€ they won't pay a thing, right?

Maybe it's normal? Is there other companies with better excesses?

Where I live a doctor appointment costs around 25€ and prescribed medication less than 20/30€ for usual diseases...

I'd love any feedbacks on the subject...

That isn't huge at all, I got food poisoning in Thailand and couldnt hold down water so I got dehydration. My trip to the local doctor for about 2 hours cost £400.

You'll be suprised how much medical care costs in places outside of the EU.

Also note that you won't be getting 'appointments.' If you need a doctor enough to visit on a trip you will have broken a bone (€£€£€$$$£€£) or need some kind of care like a saline drip at least (which I had to have and that cost my insurance £400.)

But you are right if you go to...

Most insurance companies allow you to alter that minimum, you'll have to pay more if you want it lowered to 0. But usually the purpose of a medical insurance isn't to cover your sore throat, it's to cover that week you would spend in hospital after your appendix ruptures... It's for when you get really sick abroad or need surgery, yeah many other smaller things are covered too but this insurance is mainly to prevent you from going bankrupt if anything bad happens.
>>
>>1088239
$100 isn't huge for a doctor visit. If you are only pay $20/40 it's subsidized somehow, by negotiated rates with your insurance or is simply a copay. Expect that with any tests, a doctors appointment should be closer to $150 and upwards to $450. After that, we're talking urgent care prices, which supports more staff during said visit, as well as being a specialist in price. Most specialists give you 15mins of time, and charge $250 for their diagnosis or second opinion, any tests or procedures are extra...

My brother lives in Lake Tahoe (near San Francisco where I am moving) said he may be able to help...but I don't know how I'll get the cat there as I was planning to start my road trip in DC and end in San Francisco.

Car carrier/crate. Leash + collar. Enjoy your cat in the car, take him for a little break when you stop for breaks. Stay in pet friendly hotels, and keep the crate door closed (get an oversized one that collapses if you want them to have more room while you sleep. Talk to you vet about medications for nausea and other concerns, as well as having shot records up to date, and a chip in case of escape.

I've both traveled with a cat on an airplane, and put one (actually the same one) in cargo to fly by himself while I took a road trip (cat was not going to tolerate four says en route). I recommend shipping your cat if you can. Reno airport is probably not much more than an hour from wherever your brother lives (Tahoe is roughly 3.5hrs' drive from SF btw, but in bad weather and/or bad traffic it could be six), and while it may be no fun for kitty it is easier than finding cat-friendly motels.
