hellz yeah, tons of stuff. near the beach go to the hippie flea market, the cafe about the girl from ipanema, the botanic garden, sugarloaf mountain aerial tram, the santa theresa tram up to the favelas & go check out downtown and the old part of downtown - time that for around workday happy hours. the subway is new and sleek use it and explore.
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.
>>1070856 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.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Needless bump,but some less specific question: How do you transfer money on journey? I dont want handel 1,500 bucks in cash. I know, its not so much,but what about the other /trv/ers, who backpacks through the whole far east region,through months?
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.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
>>1072172 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.
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.
Lvl 24 reporting in. I'm going to visit Rome with my gf for 5 days. I'd love to see some advice, tips or tricks on how to have a worthwhile experience there. Any nice places to see, restaurants with delicious food? Plz don't tell me vanilla stuff like: >visit Colloseum >eat pizza >drink wine and coffe >fuck children with pope
Trevi fountain, but go there in night. Also roman forum, pantheon. Watch out for dirty people who want sell you selfie sticks and others. Dont let them give you anything because they tell you its free and later they want from you money.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
