>>1084582 I like me some desert blues too every now and then. Tend to stick to Terakaft and Toumania Diabaté though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoIcrKC67bI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6cnzw_mnNo
Other than that, Mongolian (or in this case, Kalmyk) throat singing also tickles my fancy, as does Persian classical music:
In a few weeks I'm leaving on a cycling trip through southern Europe to all way to north cape in Norway. The map is a very rough sketch of my route. I've been in a few of the countries, but haven't really spent that much time in them.
It's a shit load of ground to cover, and too easy to miss cool places to visit, even if I spent days on researching. So if anyone has any tips on where to go and what to visit, especially under-the-radar type of places, or just beautiful nature, like mountains/coastline/national parks.
I will be wild camping, and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1084243 And as for safety, few tips that came into my head.
I suggest to look in google for images of bills. In Poland, for example, for over 20 years we have new bills. But sometimes those worth nothing old ones can be used to scam foreginers.
Due to imigration crisis some borders may be closed or with increased control.
Apart from that typical safety rules: - avoiding dark alleys in the night - not carrying all money in one pocket - not looking like rich foreginer - try to avoid political... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Leave your bike in Austria then visit Italy using public transport, when you have seen Italy pick up your bike and continue on your trip. If you ride your bike in §Italy near or in Roma or on the Via Aurelia you will die.
Hey /trv/ I'm visiting my friend in Chicago for a week (Feb 27 - May 6). I've checked out a few websites with lists of things to see and do already, but I'm wondering if there's any natives here who wouldn't mind giving me the inside scoop to a cool dive bar, local bands or some "off the beaten track" things.
Hey guys, First of all, I apologize about my english. It isn't my first language. My friend and I are landing in Nepal two weeks from now, in the 8/3. We were wondering about the impact that the earthquake had on Nepal and on the tourism to that country. Are people still coming to hike there? Are the popular hiking routes (Annapurna etc) are gonna be deserted? etc.
Any recommendations and other valuable information would be excelent. Thanks!
I've never been to Nepal. But as I'm also going there this summer, I found out one or the other thing about Nepal on this board. All the people replying to worries like yours told OP, that you wouldn't even recognize, that there was an earthquake. Therefore 99% of the country - including Kathmandu and the polular treks - have been restored quite fast.
Is being a nomad possible? I'm 18, have no sort of debt, a US passport, $10,000, and experience living under my means. I fluently speak English, Spanish, and have been learning French and Japanese in school for 3 years. I've never left the country and have been accepted into a decent college, but I really am unsure if I want to go. Is it possible for me to just be a nomad before/instead of going to college and inevitability ending up in debt?
>>1081252 >Is it possible for me to just be a nomad before/instead of going to college and inevitability ending up in debt? It sounds to me like you're really looking for a gap year before you go back to school. Is it possible for you to travel for a while, maybe a long while, before going to college? Sure. Is it possible for you to be a nomad forever, never getting a degree, and never stopping moving? Probably not. But luckily, you probably don't really want that anyhow.
Ten grand seems like a lot of money, but realistically, that's a few plane tickets and, if you're frugal, a few months, perhaps even a year, living simply somewhere relatively cheap. Or an economical, medium length backpacking trip.
Eventually, probably sooner than you think, the money will run out and you'll need more if you want to keep moving. With no degree, and presumably few or no marketable skills, you're not likely to get real jobs anywhere outside the US. Along with no money, this also probably means no visas, so your time in any one place is going to be inherently limited (which makes it additionally hard to get even under-the-table work).
Being bilingual might be an advantage. Go somewhere in Latin America and interpret for visiting Anglos, or translate stuff into English for locals, and you can probably pick up some cash. But whatever country you wind up in isn't likely to let you stay forever, or work legally.
Now that we are securely into 2016, let's reflect on some of our favorite and least favorite /trv/ threads, posts, posters,and trends of 2015. Also share travel stories, pictures, and highlights of 2015.
That thread where the woman came here seeking information on how to contact her boyfriend in Mexico, who went missing. Some thought she was trolling and turned out she was for real and her boyfriend died.

I have free time until september and want to use it to travel around Europe. Never travelled alone before and pretty much every destination I look at seems amazing to me so I need some help deciding. Just tell me where you had the best time in Europe, thanks in advance!
Also, I plan on making several short trips and returning home (Germany) inbetween instead of one long journey, are there any disadvantages?
This way I could go by train to big cities and use a car to explore nature/more remote areas.
I may be traveling to Japan sometime this year and will be staying with a cute girl who, I think, has dropped some hints at being interested in a romantic relationship. I read the sticky, but what are some cute date kind of places to go to? I for sure want to see the Kiyosumi garden since I like landscapes and nature type things. She also mentioned going to an onsen with me. I hope to meet her family in Miyazaki, but I'm not sure if we'll travel much since she lives in Tokyo and I don't want to make her feel obligated to spend travel money. Anyway, what would...

It astounds me that so few people that I've met have actually seen the northern lights. Everyone I ask, be it in my university, old retired people who have traveled, or online, says they haven't experienced this light show.
How many people in /trv/ have actually seen a full show of northern lights? When and where did you see it? Was it worth it?
I'm particularly interested in Canada, has anyone from Canada seen these?
Flights to Iceland are getting pretty cheap. Thinking of take a short trip over there next winter and trying to catch a glimpse of them. It's just luck of the draw though, if they are going to be happening when you're there and if there will be no cloud cover.
My parents tell I've seen before when they took me to Alaska when I was 3.
