Sup guys. So, I've been to D.C. before, and I've visited various museums and certain locations, but I was looking for something new, or out of the normal. My question for you guys is have you been to any places that particularly stuck out to you? Any places that you would recommend (especially during an acid trip, to make the experience more enjoyable)?

Espionage Museum, Museum of Air and Space, National Postal Museum and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Pretty cool stuff, but the espionage museum gets kinda childish regardless of the weapons on display.

Thank you!
Anyone else have more suggestions?, I don't necessarily mean just downtown, but around the entire area.

Anyone been to Nepal lately?
Was starting to plan a trip there but read about April 2015 earthquake fucking up a lot of Kathmandu, Patan, Bhakrapur, etc.

Are sites totally devastated, the country still in rebuilding process?
Should I wait?

Kathmandu as a city with how shitty its infrastructure and how many unfinished buildings that are around the place, you'd never know there was earthquake there if someone didn't tell you.

That said, in Kathmandu Durbur square there is fairly significant Earthquake Damage on the Heritage Buildings some dating back a fucking long time.

I never got around to Bhatkapor but I hear it's still fairly nice to see. Another good place is Pokhora, probably nicer than Khatmandu by a fair margin....

I was planning to fly into kathmandu and see sites there, at patan and bhaktapur, and still considering pokhara, nagarkot and annapurna.

I'm more into history, culture and architecture than natural scenery, but for the himalayas i'd made an exception to get a good view of them, such as nagarkot i've heard is good. But i'm not going to climb it or even go to base camp which i heard takes like 16 days of hiking. Not into treking, even if you take out the time and cost of it.

Hello /trv/, have any of you been to Addis Abeba?
I want to visit Addis in May with a friend and spend about a week there. I am quite new to ninternational travel, so I'd be glad for any and all tips.

Hey anon, I've been in Ethiopia for 2 months now so I'm willing to answer any questions you have.

Personally, I found Addis to be an overcrowded and dirty shithole - can't recommend much to do out there that can be done elsewhere in the country. Got the fuck outta there after 2 days. With that said, the cheapest form of transport in Addis is minibus. You can ask your hotel about where to catch them towards the mountain.

Most tourists stay in Piazza. You can expect to pay around 200-250...

All of us have salaries like that, it's actually pretty standard for the first year. Also, his apartment is included. Everything is cheaper in SEA. I make less than him and live a very comfortable life.

Move to North Jersey or Eastern PA and commute to the city.

Hey, /trv/, I've got an idea for the board.

We post our native countries and state all the major pros and cons for those who would like to visit/live in it.

That way we would help a lot of people to decide on their next destination. Let's be open and honest.

My situation is:

I'm 20, turning 21 soon and I'm dropping out of university. I'm not exactly sure what I want to study, I like a lot of things but there's nothing I feel very sure about yet. So my plan is to just live and work in the UK (because it's good money and I like the UK) until I get an idea of what I want to do (or saving up enough money to start up my own business, something I'd like to do eventually). I might end up staying in the UK and just living there permanently....

You have boring cities in the interior like Swindon, Reading, Basingstoke etc etc which are large commuter towns.

Then there's pleasant historical cathedral cities like Bath, Salisbury, York and so on.

Then on the south coast there's livelier places like Brighton & Bournemouth which may be more to your liking.

Personally I wouldn't go north of London due to the money and weather. Also in the south you're always close to London and transport options.

It looks like the tap water isn't safe. Am I supposed to just buy bottled water everywhere?


Not sure how I'd access all the clean water I'd need while going on day-long excursions. I have a CamelBak. Just not sure where I'd be able to fill it up.

Its not a risk. The worse it will probably happen is you getting food poisoning and shitting in your pants for a few days. Other than that, its really rare to contract anything else

Yeah, thanks. IDK, it just seems like one CamelBak's worht of water isn't going to always be enough. If I were to hike the Inca trail, how am I going to get more?

I suppose in that case, you just have to load up with a couple day's worth. I'd just love to hear from someone who's trotted around the jungle and cities of Peru (or elsewhere in South America) to see how they managed.

Should be absolutely beautiful. But there is WAY too big a risk to accidentally go on a "star in your own beheading video" excursion.

Jordan is easing visa restrictions, bolstering security for tourist spots and obviously prices are shooting down. Realistically if you're government is letting you fly to a country the you should be alright. Even when a country is in difficulty, road blocks will stop you from entering the hot areas..

What is objectively the most dangerous country to travel in? At first I thought North Korea, but at least it has a central government that can be negotiated with. It's probably all of Afghanistan and the tribal areas of Pakistan.
