I went to an international school in Asia. I think I still speak with a bit of accent when I speak English (and no ones wants to sound Asian when they speak English). When I travel aboard, some people can even pinpoint the area I am from just by hearing my voice. How to speak with a neutral accent like the people in this video?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-KNPGCRmD8
Anyone here did birthright "Free 10 day trip to Israel?" My mother is pressuring me to go since I turn 27 by next summer and its the last chance I can do it.
My main worry is that I will be completely and utterly miserable due to sleep deprivation. In high school I went to some weekend or 3 day retreats with Jewish youth groups like USY and BBYO, and barely got any sleep because of people fucking around in the room all night long. The result being in zombie mode super tired for most of the trip and couldn't handle it. And if its a fast paced traveling trip... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Birthright measures the intermarriage rate of jews who take the trip, and jews who don't. The more likely you are to marry a jew after is how they measure success.
From what you have posted, and what I've heard about birthright, you wont like it. I think it's usually two bed hotel rooms, so maybe you could get lucky and have a quiet room mate. The average age is younger, and the guides encourage people to have fun and there's quite a bit of drinking and sex.
Traveling with a coworker there. She's been there before and this is my first time going - but when we went to Chicago, we had a lot of fun because I got to also show her some places I knew.
Does /trv/ know of any fun places to explore in Vancouver? We hit the entire spectrum: we love small dive bars with bad beer and we also enjoy fancier places to drink and dance. Thanks in advance, any advice is appreciated.
>>1081193 Wow, both places look amazing. Thank you! How is the Capilano bridge, exactly? Is it a day trip? Something we can cover in a few hours? We'll most likely be busy until end of day, possibly one of the days we'll be able to go out midday for some traveling. Narrow Lounge looks like exactly the kind of stuff she loves.
Capilano Suspension Bridge: A very thin bridge that goes across a river way down below. A couple of hours, maybe 2-3, should do it. Bring your camera.
In Vancouver, I'd recomend: -Any art gallery: They're pretty common and pretty good. -Vancouver Aquarium: Our local aquarium, and it's very pretty. Not much to say, apart from go there to see our sea life. -Vancouver Port: Man, anything on the waterfront is really cool. Just looking over it is nice. Find a bench... Comment too long.

Hello /trv/, I am from Texas and plan to travel up to Alaska by vehicle this March, so I have a very long road trip ahead of me and seek tips from people who have traveled similarly, particularly through Canada to reach the frozen state.
The issue is, I have never been on a road trip this long, nor have I ever crossed the border to Canada (although I have read I don't need anything special besides proper identification). The farthest I have traveled is up to Wyoming, and had no problems there. The difference, however, is that I slept at hotels every night for that... Comment too long.

>>1079717 I speak portuguese as a native language (Brazilian), speak fluent english and good german,and am learning japanese and spanish now, probably gonna go for italian after i'm done with spanish. I would recommend studying a bit at home first, as it speeds the learning process when you travel, at least for me learning before helped a lot in germany. The benefits vary really, it may help you landing a better job, but if that would be your reason, you would be pretty much set with just english and spanish, as half of... Comment too long.

I have antianxiety medication in case I'm super uncomfortable. However, -plan your time -have loads to occupy yourself I do books, knitting, movies, rest, snack time... I watch a movie, then knit, etc to keep myself focused on tasks.
I also talk myself through it--relax, it's ok, breathe, etc. Find a phrase that helps.
Have a playlist of your utmost favourite songs Take two books (you'll get agitated with one and go to the other) Blanket, keep you warm/get cold if you want Helps talking to someone as you take off and land
I'm traveling all around Indonesia this summer for about a month. Benkulu, Jakarta, Bali etc. Have never been out of the United States. Need advice on everything to know before traveling there/ stories from people who have been. Also what to do about money abroad general.
>>1079021 I visited my friend in Jakarta and had a fun time. Go to take the train to Bandung, the scenery goes over terraced rice fields and is gorgeous. Visit Tangkuban Perahu, the volcano and surrounding park. There is a hot springs up there that is neat too. Bangdung itself is a pretty touristy city, there was an indoor/outdoor mall there with some nifty shopping and ambiance. Lots of cheap goods too. Visit Puncak Bagor to get a feel for the highlands and to see country life. Driving up there with a cab is nice. I can't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1079031 I was thinking about train riding around java, but i also am on a limited time schedule of a month for all the things i want to do. I've heard good and bad things about lion air in indonesia. They have cheap flights but bad customer service i hear. Anyone with experience with lion air?
I've booked a flight to San Francisco arriving July 7 and returning July 25. It's my first time travelling solo. I was looking at doing a Contiki tour which departs LA July 12 and runs through LA, San Diego, Arizona, Grand canyon + Route 66, Vegas, Joshua Tree, Bass Lake + Yosemite national park and then ending in San Francisco again before I would go home.
Is there anything I should check out between July 7 - 12 on the west coast? I was also thinking of just heading straight over to New York and spending a few days in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
i guess if you're from a miserable part of australia, and you want to keep being miserable, it'll be good. but if you're from a temperate part you're going to cook your fucking tits off. not to mention you're going to be smothered by other tourists and in the sierra the mosquitoes are apt to carry you away.
also, rte 66 and bass lake are dumb. rte 66 is only funny for old people who want to say they got their kicks there, and bass lake is in the middle of a drought and i doubt this... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello, I want to visit the mountain gorillas in either Rwanda or Uganda sometime in the future when I can afford it and preferably before they are all extinct. But first, I wanna hear from someone who has done it. How was your experience? Where did you do it? How much did it cost? and so on.
It seems expensive as hell and I don't know what place is the best. Bonus points for other activities you can do in these two countries.
>>1076283 No experience with it but have you considered the Virunga National Park in Congo? Apparently getting there from Uganda shouldn't be very difficult anymore and I'm pretty sure the park is way more spectacular than the areas on the other two countries
