Poland: I love pirog. So my fav xp from there is just walking around in Warsaw, looking at the high buildings and eating pirogs.

Czech: Only traveled through with train, but some parts of the journey when you travel near the river is very idillic.

Hungary: I live here so I have a lot of xp, shouldn't choose a favorite.

Hello /trv/
I keep it simple, i will walk along Amazon river in my lifetime, probably somewhere between 2020-2022. I just started planning and preparing.
For now i need to decide whether to start in Belem and go to river source, or the other way.
Also, can anyone experienced in such journeys can give me estimated amount of money i need to buy supplies beforehand.
All tips, tricks, questions and stuff greatly appreciated.

You want to walk along the Amazon by yourself? How far are you expecting to go?

Because that river is twice the length of the Appalachian Trail but with a worse climate, horrible terrain and far less opportunity to get out/get supplies. And it will take you at least six months, probably a year.

Ed Stafford did it. I remember reading an article about it a few years ago so I googled it. He's an ex-British Army officer and SAS. It took him over two years and is considered pretty much the most extreme expedition anyone has done in modern times. Just so you know what you are getting yourself into.

Dude, I have missed so many flights over the years....

Ideally, they're not no-refund e-tickets and you just get the next one.

Otherwise, you pull out your card, slap it down and tell them to get you on the next flight to Paris.

Hi /trv/!

After years of lurking , I make my first entry:
I will travel to San Diego, California (especially pic related), for 3 weeks. I have a place to sleep, and maybe a car. Could You recommend me some places and programs, that's not in the travel guides? something authentic, something special.
(25yo man, middle europe <not slavic> )
I am not interested in drugs, hookers, and parties.
Some of my interests:
-Whale watching (Have I any chance to see whales, or it's just an overpriced sailing?)
-SAnDiego Zoo and safari
-shitton...

So /trv/... What should you aim for when travelling, specially when backpacking, and with a limited amount of time.

Depth or quantity? As in visiting as many locations as possible, or doing fewer, but throughly.

I'm currently debating on experiencing several countries instead of staying in two, for the span of a month.

That depends entirely on what you want to get out of the trip. Either way is valid, there is no One True Way. There is no "should."

One thing to watch out for is the idea that staying on one side of a border means you got more "in depth" into an area -- sometimes, to get the "in depth" experience it might even be helpful to cross that border.

What about Asia.

I have 15 days, starting in Bangkok, before I start an internship in the UK.

I was thinking about checking out northern Thailand, then heading to Vietnam, and finally Burma. Thing is I saw a thread today where an anon was discussing the same itinerary (minus Burma) in a little less time, and I though that there is a lot to see.

Bangkok already is a huge city with a lot to offer. Not only that, but Chian Mai is close by. Same with Vietnam. Theres Saigon, and Hanoi to see.

>>1072535
I've done both very quick trips to many locations and slower paced visits to just a few, and although I usually prefer fewer places for longer duration, each style has certain advantages. If, for example, you won't be able to travel again for a long time, or you're unlikely to be in a region again, a higher-speed, drive-by sort of travel obviously offers tiny samples of a lot of places. But feeling rushed may make the whole thing less enjoyable.

All other things being equal, I very rarely want...

Hi /trv/, I am in Europe for 3 months and I want to visit as many natural wonders as possible anywhere in Europe (preferably more western Europe).
What are great spots for walks, hikes, and just spectacular views?

The French/Swiss/Austrian alps have some pretty beautiful scenery, but I've not been there since I was a child so I can't really recommend any places in particular. If you're there right now it's ski season, so things like hiking aren't so easy. Also, it's worth bearing in mind that these places are expensive - they're the holiday destination of choice for rich Western Europeans.

If you are able to go a bit further east, I'd definitely recommend Bled and Bohinj in Slovenia, and Plitvice and Krka in Croatia.

Corsica is pretty great. High mountains from which you can see up to the see on the top, high altitude lakes, cristal clear water with pink cliffs...
The Alps of course, but the Pyrenees must not be understimated either
That's mostly mountains tho I could list some great canyons in France too.

>which you can see up to the see on the top

I totally fucked that sentence somehow

I meant from which you can see up to the sea

Also pic related the French Alps

Hi

got an internship offer in bogota and im wondering if its worth it or too dangerous ? im a white female

If the opportunity is good then it's worthy; Bogota is a first world city for the most of it and unless you wander into the slums there is no danger.

A lot of people is white there so you won't stand out as much as you think, plus Colombian women are extremely hot so that will make it easier for you as well

You will obviously have to learn the precautions needed to prevent pickpocketing, muggery and other wonderful experiences normal in most Latin American countries

Bogotá is much safer in my experience, I don't know about other cities in Colombia but I've never heard bad things about them

Hey, I'm a high school student who is looking for a new backpack, and this is the best place I can think of. I need something I could carry around school and not look like an idiot while doing so, and I am also planning on doing a lot of traveling for the next 6 months or so. I need something waterproof, very reliable, and has a lot of space. I would like for it do be under 80 bucks.

Do you keep a travel journal?

I'm considering doing it for my next trip. Why? The other day a friend of mine asked me for tips on what to do on Mallorca. I was there for two weeks three months ago, and I can't remember shit.

Plus, it might be fun to read when I'm older.

I did on my last trip to Nepal which was my first long solo trip.

I find it pretty therapeutic, getting thoughts and feelings out on paper and I read through it last week in anticipation of the trip I'm on now around South America. Yes it kept a nice record and reminded me of things I had forgotten, both written and not.

Have the same journal with me now and keeping wary of having it just be an event recorder. I find the best entries are the ones that give a clear view of my mind set instead of just saying what I did.

I tend to keep a journal anyway...

Is there anyone here who uses portable transportation like folding bikes, roller blades, scooters, and skateboards to get around foreign cities?

I've always thought it would be a good idea to pack something like a folding bike or roller blades into your airplane luggage and use it to see a city. It looks very convenient and cheap to have transportation like this instead of having to walk, take the bus, or rent a car.

With fees most airlines charge for oversized luggage and special items, prolly rental is better.

I love a Segway tour. They're pretty fun. Guided too. Done them in 8 citites now. I highly recommend D.C. and San Francisco. Miami Beach is near the top as well.

Surly makes a couple frames with s&s couplings in the middle of the frame, and you can take it apart and pack it into a bag that can be checked on a plane.
