louth-755.jpg
32 KB,
figured it would be cool to share some of the neato things around us that a lot of tourists miss

out in the middle of the dessert sort of near louth there is this monument/pillar called the "fire stone".
a man built it so that on it cast a reflection on his wifes grave some distance away on her birthday

nobody really knows how he worked out the angles, or how he got all the stone that way out,
they think maybe paddle steamer and horse drawn cart

it's very Australian, but people miss it because it's in the middle of nowhere, (at...

I'm interested in travelling through Latin America (Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile) volunteering for people and living with them along the way but in doing research I keep reading different accounts of the safety in this region. Some say they've hitchhiked from Colombia to Chile and encountered no problems while the Canadian and American government's websites state that one should not travel close to the border of Colombia and Ecuador and Ecuador and Peru for instance.

How safe is South America and will I encounter many problems if I stick to taking buses...

Like any less economically sound part of the world, you need to exercise due caution.

But in general, I found Ecuador and Colombia to be filled with as nice a people as you'd meet anywhere, and to not be any more dangerous than anywhere else.

I have no money to even pay rent for next month, and am too socially dysfunctional to even get help. I couldn't last at my first job after getting my PhD.

But... I like to think about being able to travel, so I made my itinerary for the month of February in New Zealand (leaving from the UK). I just picked places that sounded cool and more interesting remoter locations. Pics related. 1/6

Go in summer.

July has Nadam which is a big festival, good time to see things but bad because it will be crowded and probably more expensive. Depends on what you want to do.

Oasis hostel is a little far out of the centre of the city but is really nice (also there's a bus straight into town). pic related, it's their backyard

There is literally nothing in Mongolia but rocks, water and sand. And horse milk. That's really it, I don't know how you guys are going to be bro-ing it up, but don't expect much. Mandatory: Return to your previous mongolia.

Will be leaving London for Washington in a few days. Staying for about a month, got a place to stay in Olympia.

Generally speaking, this will be my first visit to the evergreen state. Been to California plenty of times. I've got a few ideas of things I want to do, but I'm more concerned with making the most of my stay.

It's difficult to feel like you've been to a place without a couple of local contacts, and I'd regret leaving without having a memorable experience.

Any suggestions for things to do and see? I'm interested in...

A month in Olympia, did you think this through all the way? Olympia is a relatively small town, granted it's a fun little town but it's just small. It has some cool nightlife I guess, there's lots of students so you might be able to meet some cool people, it's even more liberal than Seattle though so they are mostly all the SJW type. There have a pretty cool market in the bay harbor on weekends and nice fountain thingy that kids like to run around in.

There is lots of nature around that area especially in the Olympic peninsula. You've got that...

If you have the time take the 101 highway up to Port Angeles, and do a loop back to Olympia through Aberdeen. If you're into forests, you'll like the Olympic peninsula. Lots of hiking there, the trails will be muddy, but if you're English it wont be anything new.

Try to ride a ferry or two. There's ferries in the San Juan Islands.

Have you been to a ski mountain? There's a cluster of them to the east of Seattle. Even if it's just snowshoeing it's not something you could normally do in London.

Might want to look into some...

I'll be getting a rental. I have a license out here, just not in the US. I always heard that it takes a day to pass your test and get your license in the US, or maybe that's just Hicktown states.

Whether that's the case or not, I'll be seeing a lot of the state. I'll check out Seattle a few times, and I might go up to Vancouver. That sort of thing.

As for the people, I'm very cut and dry, say it how it is Southerner. If I encounter any harsh tones, I'm confident...

Not to be rude, but in order to give you something different, I'd need a rough idea of what country your from and where you've been/the kind of things you've done and enjoyed.

Post all things related to amusement parks, theme parks, or things that can be found in them ITT.

I'm a bit of an expert in this area and I create elaborate spreadsheets on the topic. Attached is an example of one that lists what I believe are the best amusement places in the USA and Canada using data sets. I know many things about parks in other countries, too, so you can ask questions on this subject and I will answer you.

#1 on the list also happens to be the most-visited theme park complex on Earth: Walt Disney World. Even if you separated the four parks that make it up on the list, Magic Kingdom (the main park), would still be in the Top 10.

Do you guys allow the current economic situation in a country decide whether or not you will visit?

I used to believe countries with failed economies, or experiencing a significant downturn would be cheaper but that's not always the case, sometimes it's even the opposite.

The only thing that will really make a difference is the exchange rate on their currency. Right now is a perfect time for Americans to visit Canada for example. Compared to 2 years ago it's 40% cheaper. Same thing with the yen which a couple of years ago dropped in value quite a lot. I often base my destinations on where I will get more for my currency than I would in other destinations or historically. Unfortunately I live in Canada and our currency is in the shitter right now so I probably won't travel...

Wow, yes the USD CAN exchange rate is the best I've seen it, BUT doesn't the price of local goods and services matter as well?

For example if you get 18 Mexican pesos for 1 USD at first that sounds like a good deal but if everywhere you go shops are charging 100 pesos for a bottle of water etc. it doesn't help you....it seems like pricing info is actually more important than exchange rates but I know of no concise place to get facts.

As a "digital nomad" (inb4 meme comment) I most definitely look for this. Countries going downhill financially are excellent to pick up nice apartments to stay in for months. Why pay £1000 for a studio in the UK when you can find 2 bedrooms in Spain for €300.

It kinda bores me to read travel reviews of dangerous places as "safe and full of friendly people".

Can I have some true travel horror stories ? Tourists that act as if the 3rd world is just like the western world, tourists that visit warzones, kidnapping by local militias, etc etc.

Pic related, two dutch girls that thought it was going to be a good idea to travel into the Panama jungle without a guide.

Hey /trv/, I don't usually (actually, I just lurk) post stuff here, but I've been lurking for a while and could not find a thread of the likes of this, so I decided to make one.

Basically I'm 18 years old, living in Australia, but come from South America (so I am fluent and proficient in Spanish); I have decided to take 2016 as a year for working and travelling a bit more, but this time on my own.

My main idea was working for at least the first half of the year saving up some money in hardmode (barely spending anything) and the from July up to November or December do volunteering abroad as a form of travelling and attempting to make a difference, or at least broaden my world views a bit more for future me.

Now, I was thinking about either somewhere in Africa or somewhere in South America (probably easier for me for language reasons), but as I've been researching for the last couple months, these "volunteering abroad" associations for first worlders with money a profitable organizations, and seem to be more of a pat in the back type of thing.

Should I just backpack it somewhere on my own and find volunteer there? Is the idea of volunteering abroad delusional in itself? Should I go with a project sort of thing?

I know how to handle myself in airports, but never been left alone in a foreign country (always had at least one mate or relative).

Thanks /trv/, you are true heroes of the world

If you had to choose between Reykjavik, Kirkenes, and Barrow as a travel location to see the Aurora Borealis, which would you choose and why?

And pretty easy to please accommodation wise so not terribly worried about creature comforts but I realize other people value different things so just thought I'd ask.

Tromsoe or Lofoten, because the sceneries there are much better than Kirkenes.

Akureyri.

Whichever, you're going to want to get away from the city and city lights for the best viewing.

And try to time your trip around the new moon, the full moon can wash ut the display.

Finally got to see an aurora in Iceland -- I asked the desk clerk who would be overnight at the hotel I was in to ring my room if a display started.

It is well worth seeing.
