I am planning a trip with my girlfriend, about 1 or 2 months... We are planning to walk some 1000km together somewhere, not really having a destination or a plan.

We plan to sleep outside preferably, in citys we will go to campings or as a last resort a hostel. We will shower in the sea or w/e... We got gear (backpacks, cooking, medical, sleeping...)

I was thinking about doing a modified santiago de compostela, and ending somewhere north of bordeaux france... Or mayby start at the pyrenees and try to get somewhere in switserland following the coast..

>pretty good prepared
You mean well prepared. And you aren't if you don't know where the fuck you'll be going.

Anyway.

I have never hiked in France so I couldn't tell you. Sardinia is a small island if you want to walk 1000 kms. From Sicily up north is a nice idea in theory but the South of Italy can be very ugly in a lot of places (Reggio Calabria wtf), and there isn't a continuous hiking trail like e.g. the Appalachian in the USA. So you'd end up walking alongside roads, and those don't have...

New Zealand's South Island (where I live) is about 1000km long. There is a cycle track the length of it I think - you could walk it. I would do it in summer, not winter though. Go down the middle and you got some unbelievable scenery.

Hey /trv/, i recently called a debt on a guy that was giveing me the runaround he said he was broke and gave me what he owed in indian rupees, im in the uk and i have found out it's a restricted currency, anyone know if a way i can get it converted or am i better going to an indian fast food place and selling it to them way below conversation and cut my losses?

Thanks.

Put them up on gumtree saying you have some and you will sell them at exactly the current conversion rate. This way you'll both be getting a better deal, usually if done through a money exchange/bank they give you slightly less than conversion rate and then charge a little more to buy.

There's bound to be a lot of people going to India from the UK. Do you have a lot? If it's not a big sum you might as well just sell to an Indian at your local corner shop or fast food joint.

You'll be lucky if you can find parking within five blocks of your destination. Bring a jacket. It's pretty much just a really crowded city...definitely check out the parks though, they are beautiful. My favorite part of last time I went was when I left across the Oakland bridge and I suddenly felt like someone took a lid off of me. That place is claustrophobic just to exist in. I'm from SD btw

I am currently 19 studying computer science looking into either networking or information security. It has always been a dream of mine to move to Ireland not just to leave the US and never look back but to also embrace the culture and experiences available. What are some tips and needed information on moving to Europe from the US?

Ireland is saturated with comp. science majors. Especially after Lisbon and even moreso now that Germany essentially own us. Not impossible to get a job in comp science here but it's competitive.

Best advice if you plan on moving here for some reason? Don't go around telling everyone that you're american or your great grandad was Irish or some shit. It just pisses people off. Especially if you go to the wrong part of Dublin or venture out of the tourist zones.

Big cities are easy when you're alone because you can always find your people. I live in Albuquerque, there's no such thing as a heavy metal bar here. I went to London and bar hopped and it was a great experience. I always used to hate bars with a passion, but then I went to some where I actually liked the music and everything changed.
Basically just search out whatever you're into. Anime, bicycles, BDSM, whatever. Find your people. You'll fit in instantly and have a great time.

Hello /trv/, first time posting here

So i would like to get some advice from you guys, i hope i won't be too general.

It's my last year as a senior and my exams are only months away. Once i get done with them i have about 1 week of freedom before i get called to join the army. Hence i am looking for a suitable destination,within Europe, to go for that period of time with my close friends (4-5 people).

We are going to eat shit 2 years straight so we are aiming to make this experience the most fucked up one and forever memorable, and since we are over 18 we won't have many restrictions as far as i know.

Budget wise, we prefer to stick to something not too expensive but we wouldn't mind if the prices were a bit salty.

Thanks!

Avoid Quarto Oggiaro if you're a tourist. Milan in general is pretty safe if you hang around in the centre or go clubbing somewhere. Go to at least one Centro Sociale (Leoncavallo, Macao, Cantiere are the main ones

I'm thinking 1-2 weeks but I'm not too familiar with where I should go, I would def want to stay in at least 2 different places. Stay in hostels or airbnb. Mainly interested in it because it's in a warm area and seems interesting don't plan or want to be on the beach all day.

I'll probably be by myself because my friends are pussies.

welp im probably going to be homeless soon. I guess my plan is to live out of my car for a while and just travel around working odd jobs as I go to pay for gas/food. Im planning on staying towards the southwest maybe up along the west coast where its warm. By the summer I might try and go east coast because ive got a lot of family up there. Any tips? Where can I sleep in my car and not have some fuck sneak up on me, or have any cops bother me?

Going to assume you're in the US.
Put things (flags or blankets work well) over your windows at night.
I assume some of the desert areas of the southwest and probably some parts of the northwest go on for miles with very little human interaction (although there may be that one asshole rancher who says you're on his lawn). Buy camping gear.

Or start stripping.

Hi /trv/,
I really like Brutalist architecture and Cold War ruins
Anyone got some cool 'off the beaten path' recommendations in these areas?
Also, what is the current status on Skrunda and Irbene in Latvia?

At the moment I am looking at:
Rummu
Patarei Prison
Imperial Russian Forts in Liepaja
Karosta
Plokštinė missile base
some Soviet museum near Vilnius

any recommendations outside sights are welcome too
Cheers

If you want to be REALLY off the beaten path, there is a humongously big Soviet barracks in Berlin, a 15-minute walk from the overground station "Bernau-Friedenstal" (I realise that this technically isn't Berlin anymore). I've never met anyone there. You can find old soviet newspapers, I regularly find buttons and other stuff. It has a big watchtower and lots of dilapidated stuff.

Hey /trv/, ill be going to Vientiane, Laos for a week tomorrow to visit a group of friends 4-5, any suggestions on what to do? in vientiane and near vientiane. Rather not go to other cities overnight due to circumstances of the people in the group that does not let me so

However, does anyone know any good places near vientiane such as waterfalls or nature treks that would make good day trips?

Lots of cool caves near Vang vieng. Not sure about Vientiane though. There is the Buddha statue park, but thats only good for an hour or so..

If you can find motorbikes and just go for a ride somewhere I'd recommend that.

What's the best way, booking in advance or looking through local companies?

I'm 23 and in the past I booked in advance and both times it didn't go well. Either they had loads of hidden fees which I had to pay after making a non-refundable payment or pick up from airport didn't turn up.

What does /trv/ do when renting abroad?

So far, I've boo0ked in advance to either pick up at the airport, or to pick up where ever in my trip I planned to start needing a car.

Never had any problems, other than a surprise insurance charge in Ireland, which is was in the contract that I should have read.

Protip -- Yes it is long, but read the contract.

Well there'd be a point in the duration of your stay where it'd be cheaper to buy a cheap car then to rent one. Obviously that point depends on the price of the used car you purchase but rentals are rarely cheap in first world countries so you wouldn't have to be using it for too long to justify buying.
The longest I've rented a car for was about a week in the US, I've never bought but I imagine buying a car in another country where you don't have an address could be a hassle, that...
