I've been (lazily) learning Portuguese for awhile now and I understand Spanish a shit ton more after not having studied spanish at all.

Also, switch the language in your phone/phone games/etc. You'll pick up on things eventually.

I'm in the process of learning Spanish myself. I'm currently using studyspanish.com to learn grammar. Once I've learned the 'rules' of the language, I plan to just do plenty of reading and writing to remember words and expand my vocabulary.

I'm planning on staying in Dhaka for a week during Eid, with my girlfriend who is a Bangladeshi National. There is a law against foreigners having any Bangladeshi visitors to their hotel rooms. She wont actually be staying in my hotel overnight, but it's obviously much more convenient if she can come into my room. I'm going to book the "royal suite" which is large with a dinning table and stuff.

I talked to the hotel about this to make sure there are no issues. I had do to some careful talking and convincing, but I got sent up the chain of management who have confirmed that if we check in together we will be fine. That means I would book a room for 2, which is a bit extra and fine with me.

The only thing is we might not actually "check in together", we will arrive there at different times. She will also come and go. Do you think they will have a problem with this? I'd think any normal hotel would be fine with this, but in BD they seem a bit sensitive.

Just tell them their beliefs are outdated relics from the Dark Ages that have no place in 21st Century society, and that they should be ashamed of themselves for stubbornly holding on to them.

They will deeply apologize and immediately adopt your point-of-view, so you should have no problems whatsoever.

It's obviously to discourage prostitution. Hotels DGAF if you're married or not, as OP's post shows.

I was in Dhaka not that long ago. What the official stance is and what actually happens are two different things. Bangladesh is actually much more permissive than you'd think with all the muslim stuff. Officially they wouldn't let your gf in, but most likely they would just look the other way.

I stayed at a 5star which had a hotel bar, and even working girls. I didn't try one, but it was clear it wouldn't have been a problem. She probably would just have discretely come to my room on her own, after me. The hotel staff clearly knew the working girls...

HI!
I'm going to Vegas in a few weeks and I've got 2 problems.

1. I've already booekd a car for a trip to Grand Canyon. West Rim or South Rim?
I know, that the South Rim is "the real deal" and the West Rim is a rip-off for tourists, but it has to be done in one day. I am starting the trip at 9am.

2. I have tickets for Guns N' Roses at the T-Mobile Arena. Is it possible for me to sell tickets infront of the area? Are there any chances that someone will give me 400$ for them? I've 3 tickets, but only need 2.

1. The south rim is 5 1/2 hours away - you can't really make it a day trip. Just go to the west rim.

2. T-Mobile arena isn't open yet, so there's really no solid advice here for it, since no one has ever attended. Scalping isn't legal here, but generally it's not too heavily enforced, although that might be different since the stadium will just now be opening and they might want to discourage scalpers.

As for the ticket price, I see they're going for over $300 on Stubhub,...

Dubai is an obvious one. In general, that whole region, seeing as they were fishing villages 50 years ago, they literally are brand new.

Oslo is really nice, but give it a couple more years until its all built. Veryc clean and modern.

Reikjavik is small and clean, modern.

Ghost towns in china.

Seems pretty dull though, why would you want to go to a place without any history or "soul"? Autism?

I'm going on a motorcycle trip soon from Washington state, through British Columbia, up to Alaska. I'll either drive directly into Alaska or hop around the southeastern islands via ferry.

I've never done this before. I've also never done a solo trip of this magnitude. I've also never camped before.

Any advice? Besides "carry DEET"

Sounds like a hell of a trip and I'm envious.

I'm from the UK so don't have any geographical advice but I can advise you to go camping as much as possible before the trip, using the gear you will be taking with you.
>>
>>1088253
This basically
You don't have to go on long ass camping trips but get used to your gear
Also, have a backup plan (emergency money, knowledge of how to fix motorbikes, shit like that)
You can also find hostels hella cheap if you end up not liking camping
I absolutely love BC but I've never been to Alaska so I have no advice for routes but stop and enjoy the sights, the highway can get pretty boring but there's tons of small towns off the highway you can check out and shit

Have fun man!

Not anymore. How about we keep on going here?

I've been looking at the hosts and stuff and it really seems like now is the time to start asking for positions for the summer. Anybody here has any personal experiences to share, any tips on when to ask for and what kind of hosts to ask? Any information really would be nice.

What I'm planning for now is to go to South Korea for at least a month in the summer, working at a hostel propably. Seems like a nice way to spend a bit more time for less money in a country.

I'm traveling to Peru this August and couldn't be more excited. I just wanted to start a thread for people to share their Peru experiences. My general question is this...Peru seems to feature all of the following

-relatively cheap flights from the US (found $174 one way to Lima)
-shit load of nature and outdoor experiences to do and see like Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail, and the rainforest among other things
-cheap but good food and bus transportation around the country
- seems safer than the Central/South American countries white...

Have been looking at different atolls and small islands in the Pacific and found this off the coast of Guam. Seems to be blocked off. Idk if it's an error or maybe a restricted area. Maybe I'm overthinking it.

There is a US missile base in Guam so it wouldnt really surprise me to think that some things may be blocked off.

>>1088039
If the place you're talking about is north of Guam, it's probably one of the Marianas islands. If it's south of Guam and right off the coast, it's Cocos Island (it's a small day resort). In either case, nothing special or unusual. BTW, your coordinates point to empty ocean north of Hawaii, nowhere near Guam. And your image is useless.

Anyone know the price of the CVS passport photos if you want to get more than 2 photos? I know 2 cost $12 but if you want 4 copies will it cost $24?

Asking because five people need 6 photos and if I'm right then the total cost would be $180 which is frankly ridiculous

If you're sweating 12 bucks you really shouldn't be traveling

No its cheaper. The 12 bucks is mostly for the act of taking the photo. Copies are less.

Also, what the fuck? You could just as easily CALLED a CVS and they would have answered this question.

Why don't people just take their photo at the post office or wherever you get your passport processed?

There is a tourist-tier (but still interesting) all-you-can-eat Mexican restaurant in town called Casa Bonita. They have Mariachi bands, an arcade, and an indoor cliff and dive pool that divers jump in from the top of the cliff.

There is one notable amusement park in town called Elitch Gardens, but it's "meh" compared to other parks of its size throughout the country. There is also a smaller, but more historical amusement park called Lakeside Park, which has the oldest roller coaster in the state.

Also, Denver was a huge railroad hub dating back to the days when the Transcontinental Railroad was still being built, and still is today. The Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado very close to Denver has a pretty cool selection of trains on display and runs some of them on a circle of track on weekends.

Thank you. I had no idea that south park restaurant was real. I guess I have to give it a try. I will look into the railroad too.

I would recommend the Denver Zoo or the Natural History Museum.There is also an Art museum, but it can be hit or miss depending on what is on display at the time.

Hey ya'll, posted here before asking for advice and I wanted to thank everyone for being serious and helping me out with stuff. I'm taking a Royal Caribbean cruise in a few months (First time on a cruise), and since I booked I have applied for a Passport card. Now, just incase Obama holds the travel department hostage until Trump drops out (Worst case scenario) or something, I have my Birth Certificate and Photo ID ready. What do you guys think? Mine looks just like this with watermarks and a little bumpy seal. Legit?

It doesnt take that long to get a passport. Best thing to do is call the cruise line and ask about the requirements for your specific cruise.

Not sure what you are asking. if you are asking whether you can travel with a driver's license and birth certificate but no passport/card, I don't think anybody will let you cross their boarder with that -- though an enhanced dl will get you into Canada, last I looked, so conceivably might work elsewhere. Check requirements of any countries where you will make port. and just get a passport, it is not hard and can be expedited if time is pressing.

If you are asking if your birth certificate looks real,...

>U.S. citizens on closed-loop cruises (cruises that begin and end at the same port in the U.S.) will be able to enter or depart the country with proof of citizenship, such as a government-issued birth certificate and laminated government issued picture ID, denoting photo, name and date of birth.

As long as your cruise doesn't port you should be fine.
