I'm 25 and got my first taste of traveling by visiting Peru with some friends. I loved it and it's been almost a year since that trip.

I want to travel again this summer. Thing is, none of my friends can afford to. Looks like if I really want to travel I'll have to do it solo.

What's solo travel like? I'm afraid it will be awkward and lonely. I would try to stay in hostels in order to meet people but I'm not a naturally outgoing person. Any tips?

I live in RI and I really want to leave. Can't stand living up here anymore and really want a change. It's crowded, everything up in New England is expensive, and people can be downright just nasty.

I want to get away from the east coast. I like the idea of farmland and quaint towns, but I still need to be able to find a job! Being in the 'middle of nowhere' really doesn't sound all that bad to me as long as I'm not literally 20 miles from society

I can't afford this expensive ass medicine in the US anymore. It takes too long to see a doctor and get the meds. Are any of those online mexican pharmacies good or are they just scams? All I need are antibiotics like ZPack. Do I have to actually go to TJ to get the stuff?

Just go to Mexico the pharmacists speak English and accept USD
And you can find a pharmacy within the first block away from the border, buy up to a three month supply of what you need (as long as it's not a controlled substance), and walk back across

That and honestly the cartels run the show in the first few blocks of every border city so it's unequivocally safe for tourists

>>1087656
so what you're saying is i shouldn't even bother with the online method? I'm just double checking because it's always a huge pain in the ass to cross the border plus i live 143 miles north of it so...I CAN go there but is it possible to avoid and just do the online route? Will I get ripped off?
>>
>>1087658
No idea I live in a border town so it's never been an issue of buying online
Just don't buy any controlled substances cuz it's a huge hassle to go back into Mexico, throw away the meds, go back through the line, and get approved to go back

Hi OP,


This really depends on the location, level, and duration of the hiking you have planned in Peru. If you're experienced trekkers and will be carrying your own equipment, you'll find the whole country is criss-crossed with a spectacular network of trails. It's believed that there's a greater length of pre-Columbian walking trails in the Andes than the entire modern national highway network, over 80,000 km (50,000 miles).

Anywhere in the highlands, you'll find it relatively easy to hire a guide who's extremely familiar with...

well, since you didnt care to elaborate what in particular might interest you, i assume you just want to let out your inner hedonist. for that purpose odessa has two locations: arcadia and the center; some clubs, a lot of bars and restaurants, everything you need in terms of food and entertainment.
you might want to go diving, or rent a boat and throw a nice party... theres is a chance some dolphins will want to join, so bring fish.

but, honestly, most people visit odessa for its history. there are like three dozen or so archeological, art, jewish history museums,...

So, what and where is your favorite street food from? Pic related, fried squid with garlic in Guangzhou, China. Love the taste, love the texture, and dirt cheap.

Runner up, there is/was this donut holes place in Reykjavík, Iceland that are just wonderful. Hot, fresh and tasty as hell.

Hey /trv/,

I'll be camping for the first time in Canada from the 18-27. Its with a school club so theres already a plan in place; we'll be spending a few days in Jasper and Banff national park. Was wondering if theres any advice i could get on what supplies to bring, what to expect, ect. Pretty much any tips in general since im new to this. Also, i dont really have any gear besides maybe a sleeping bag laying around somewhere. Any must have items? (from what i know tents will be provided)

I just got invited to my buddy's bachelor party in Nashville. I haven't been before, and the flight's gonna be pretty expensive from out here in Vegas.

My question is - how big is Nashville, and what area should I be looking for in a hotel? Like, if I'm not directly downtown, am I going to be far away from the cool shit? Would it make sense to stay in a cheaper place and take a cab/Uber/some other transportation to the places we'll be partying?

Also accepting hotel recommendations. I'm splitting with 3-6 of my college best friends,...

Try the Gaylord (teeheehee) Opryland Resort. Seriously, though, it's this fancy hotel with an entirely glass-enclosed shopping and dining area.

As for sites, Andrew Jackson's sprawling plantation, The Hermitage, is open to tourists. It should be interesting as long as you like history and are not an SJW airhead (he owned slaves, oh noes!).

I would find an airbnb downtown for a bachelor party, hotel is a terrible idea. It will give you a good place to crash with your buddies, get loud/drunk for pregame/after bars close, do drugs etc which you obviously won't get away with in a hotel. It's a big music place so I would check the dates you'll be there and find something that sounds good. Also might recommend driving east to the mountains during the day, some great parks to see and good for a day trip.

If you like amusement parks, Kings Island is close to the freeway between Dayton and Cincinnati. If you like history, Carillon Historical Park in Dayton has a couple of neat things, like one of the original Wright Brothers airplanes. They have one of the strangest carousels I've ever seen, as well.

Also, once you get to the Smokies, check out Dollywood. They are opening a huge new ride when the park opens later this month called Lightning Rod, which is the world's first launching wooden roller coaster. All of its rides are set inside a mountain valley and use...

Hey /trv/

A friend and I are most probably going to roadtrip in the US this summer. The plan is to land in Seattle and to drive to San Francisco in two weeks (15 days) and then to go home to whatever boring awaits.
Anyway I need a few tips from you:
- How much time do you think we should be spending in Olympic national park ? I was thinking 2 as to have time to explore a bit and to take pictures (not too fond of hiking and such but I don't walking a bit)
- How is Mount Rainier NP ? How much time should we stop there ?
- The road is almost decided up...

Instead of just seeing the Olympic Peninsula, you might consider seeing some of Canada too. After you're done with Seattle, head North to Anacortes and take a ferry to the San Juan Islands. Spend a night on one of the islands then take another ferry to Victoria, Canada. Victoria is super cool because it's on a gigantic island and is the capitol of British Columbia. Next you can ferry to the Olympic Peninsula, where you will arrive in Port Townsend. You can do a lot of neat day hikes -- hike out to Dungeness...

Hi /trv/. I just booked my first holiday tickets to Barcelona, Spain. The flight is on 21st April (arriving at night) until 24th (departing at night). Could anyone suggest me places to visit? Mostly sightseeing, dining, nightlife and hike a mountain with a great view to chill and enjoy. Also, what cheap motels/hostels could you suggest? Im ok with sleeping in a shitty place as long as it is in a good location and has a free Wifi.
Cheers mates.
