Hey /trv/, I'm a first time traveler so I'm a little nervous and was hoping you guys could help me out. The questions I'm asking I've already tried with google and have gotten pretty general answers or can't find specific answers for, so I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm just a little nervous because this is only my second time flying (first time was to basic training where everything was taken care of for us) and it's overseas.

Anyways, I'm flying from the US out to the netherlands with a 1hr30m layover in frankfurt.

but can you access your carry on during the flight if you need to get something out of it? Or is it once it's up in the compartment it isn't moving?

Honestly the main thing I guess I'm concerned about is the baggage and packing something wrong/not permitted and causing it to delay me or something. Any overall tips for traveling/flying, especially overseas is appreciated. I'm pretty nervous since it's my first time out of country.

>Checked bag
Shampoo and Bodywash in a checked bag have never been a problem on any flight I've been on in the EU, UK or the US. Neither were advil or vitamins.

>Transferring checked baggage
Is done for you. You can't even access it unless you've booked actual separate flights. With layovers it's all taken care of.

>Flights losing luggage
Yes, still a thing. But extremely rare and when it happens usually take care of very quickly. Don't worry about it. Your suitcases are individually labelled with codes and you also receive a baggage claim tag with the same number (which you don't need to claim it, only when you get lost).

>carry on
Book, tablet, laptop is fine. Just no sharp objects or liquids. You will be asked to take laptops and tablets out at security. It's standard procedure. They just need to be in a separate tray for a few minutes. It's in the overhead compartment and you can take it out if you want. Don't do it *too* often though because it's fucking annoying for your fellow passengers.

Also, be sure to check the allowed dimensions of your carry-on luggage with your airline. They're usually lenient about it, but just be safe.

You'll be fine. It's mostly just boring.

Now. The reason I actually replied to this thread - any plans for The Netherlands yet? Where are you staying? What are you going to see? What are you interested in?

Ps.
Even when you have something on you that isn't allowed there usually isn't a problem. I once had trouble at a layover in London on a flight from Seattle to Amsterdam. I had a jar of jam in my backpack that I bought at Seattle Airport and it wasn't sealed. So London security picked me out and asked about it. I just explained and it was all fine. They did take the jar of jam though.

In an airport in Greece my girlfriend and I were stopped at security because she had a butter knife in her purse. Honest mistake - she had taken it to work and when she...

Anyone else here hates 'semi-permanent residents' at hostels?
I feel like they kill the atmosphere really. They're just there, supposedly travelling, but in actual fact just sitting there all day only entertaining the folks they know and not really engaging with the people.
Have had it many times now when I travel around and they suck the air out of the room. It's like you visit a workplace and you're the client and they're the staff.

>only entertaining the folks they know and not really engaging with the people.
Staying in a hostel for companionship is kind of sad in the first place. I think you should stop hoping other people entertain you on your travels. Travel with friends/family you know and get a hotel, or at least get out of the hostel and do things of your own accord.
>>
>>1076318

Why is that 'sad'? Hostels are organized that way, to meet up with fellow travellers. They have common rooms for that specific reason.
>>
I hate people who stay at hostels, period. Especially the type that apparently believes they are entitled to an extremely specific, carefully preconceived experience for 15 bucks a night and have the gall to become indignant when things don't work out as demanded.

Have you considered suicide, op?

You see on the internet all the time in articles and impressions from travelers that it is relatively inexpensive to travel most places around the world.

Can someone experienced travelers confirm whether this is true or not?

I, like many people, have never internationally traveled because I always assumed it was expensive. Thousands for a plane ticket and hundreds to eat and just do basic activities within the culture. I'm aware that you can travel to many places around the world on the cheap. But there is a huge difference between "traveling" and...

Basically, what I'm asking is whether my idea of travel is similar to what people say when they claim "international travel is so cheap! It's so easy to visit anywhere you want in the world on a dime?". Or do they mean "You can travel internationally with barely any money, as long as you pinch every penny by flying at 3am in the morning on a shady airline, couch surfing with strangers so you don't have to pay rent or meals, eating meat and cheese sandwiches 3 meals a day with water and only doing activities that don't cost money...

The impression I get from /trv/ is of a bunch of penny-pinching NEETs who are losers in their own country but expect to be worshiped as exotic and intriguing species when they travel abroad. Hence all the questions about fucking Asian ladyboys and which country has the easiest girls.

Then you have the meme-tier posts about "how can I earn money while traveling" where the insufferable ESL autists and delusional blogger faggots like to chime in with their wisdom. Funny how they're always on 4chan on a Saturday night instead of enjoying the superior culture...

I'm assuming you're not an American, or you have family in Iran or something.

If that's not the case I know for a fact you can only travel in Iran with a state sanctioned guide. So wherever he takes you is where you're going. Have fun.

It's mostly just a guitarist playing and some singers joining in later on. But it got me interested and i want to know about the security of travelling in near east. Can someone give me a resource i could read up regarding travelling in near east? Pictures of Teheran with the Damavand in the background are really fascinating.

I've never been to Iran but everyone who has gets super passionate about what a great place it is, and super pissed at any ideas to the contrary.
And I do mean everyone; I don't think it's possible to find a single negative review of travel to Iran. Even Rick Steves loved it.
And Iran's in the Middle East.

I've been to Iran. Loved it. You should go, everyone should go. But I hope you're not American, OP. Americans need guides accompanying them.

Okay so I decided I want to move to a ski town next season to focus on riding for a while. I never moved out of state and I'm curious about which resort out west would be the best for me to look into. I have experience waiting tables so finding a job shouldn't be a problem, but I'm trying not to break the bank while moving out there. Preferable I would like to live in a actual town at the base of the mouton, do you guys have any advice for me?

I worked ski patrol two seasons at a resort on Mt. Hood in oregon. I'll tell you right off the bat, if you're looking for a big mountain with lots of terrain and great snow this probably isn't the place for you. However if you're a park rat the crews up here keep the parks well maintained and switch it up often.

There's 3 main hills up here. Skibowl is the smallest but it's right in town and has the most night time terrain in the country. Timberline is a little further up the mountain, lots of good parks but a little flat. Skibowl and Timberline...

This if you want great skiing without being too expensive. Bozeman is awesome because it's very cheap to live there and it's not super small. Plus there's tons of other shit to do when it's not winter. It's not right at the base of a mountain, but you're less than 30 minutes away from Bridger Bowl. And you've got Big Sky (better skiing) about an hour away. Big Sky is a nice place to live but it's much more expensive. However I have...

Above poster is right that the risk of JE is almost vanishingly small. But the disease does still exist in rural Southeast Asia, and it has a roughly 25% fatality rate. So you almost certainly won't get it. But if you are profoundly unlucky and DO get it, you have a one in four chance of dying from it.

Honestly, since there is a vaccine, I'd get it. There isn't much treatment they do for encephalitis (whatever the cause), and high likelihood of dying. I'd consider 25% damn high. In my locality (Miami), people die from this all the time throughout the year from basic viral encephalitis. They even go to the E.R., get sent home, and die in a few hours. It's just that insane, probably witness about 3 deaths every few months, like kids in high schools. Yet, at the same time, as a Florida native, I...

The policy decrees that foreigners entering China via Shanghai, Hangzhou (Xiaoshan International Airport), Nanjing (Lukou International Airport) can take advantage of the new 144-hour visa scheme, providing they're transiting to another country afterwards. They can also depart China from any of these ports of entry.
