Spring break is coming up and I nabbed tickets for $315 round trip. I do have a 19hr layover in Panama city giving me time for a quick tour of the city, I might even stay and do a land crossing into Costa Rica. I was thinking of doing a loop from San Jose to Arenal then maybe off to Liberia and west along the coast and back. I would like to do this on a motorcycle if I could. I know I can rent bikes there and I am legal to ride. Anyone have any experience riding in Costa Rica? Or just have some places for me to check out, even if they are not on the loop I mentioned?
>>1066660 Went to both Panama and CR last year. The road between Panama City and Costa Rica is long, it will take up a whole day. If you have a day to waste then go ahead, otherwise fly.
Arenal is pretty great, I stayed in La Fortuna and there's a lot of things to see and do there. Didn't go to Liberia but it's just a resort town, I wouldn't recommend it much. Instead you should go to Manuel Antonio and possibly Jaco if you want a beach town.
I didn't ride in CR but wish I could have. Didn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1066660 f you want to visit the Arenal area, I would recommend that you head to Alajuela and not San Jose after you arrive in Costa Rica. Alajuela is much closer to the airport and also closer to Arenal/La Fortuna. It is literally like five minutes from the airport to Alajuela while San Jose is over 30 minutes away.
From the Arenal area you can go to the cloud forests of Monteverde using a "bus-boat-bus" trip: You'll get picked up at your hotel in La Fortuna by a minibus that'll take you to the Arenal... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1067104 Santa Marta is only good for traveling, not for living, since it is considered a touristic city among everyone in the country. If you want to be located near the coast, I would recommend Barranquilla, although is not as "touristic" as Cartagena or Santa Marta, but it is considered as one of Colombia's Financial Center and is near both of them. For the same reason, it is rather expensive to live in the Colombia's Atlantic coast. Medellin, on the other hand, has a good cost of living index. Both,... Comment too long.

Hi guys (I already correct my mistakes, it was the cellphone xD) I'm a Colombian man and this is the first time I post here, I have decided that I'm gonna try all I can to do what I want to do.

Hey dude! Funny to read this here because im just about to relocate to ibague to teach english! Im arriving 23rd of this month and im trying to look for a room or an apartment to stay in for a year. Perhaps you know something?
Alright /trv/, help me out here. I am gonna be going on a 2 week road trip with my friend in America, sleeping in the car, maybe motels, and camping, and I need a couple things compiled in case I am missing something here. I need a packing list, and an idea on some things west of Tennessee that are great to see, and maybe some suggestions and tips in general
I decided to kick the new year off with a trip to Dubai. Since I've never been I don't really know what it's like. From what I've read on here, it isn't very easy to meet people and I'm going solo. I'm mainly looking for a relaxing holiday but if possible, I would like to check out a beach club or two. How "resorty" is Dubai? Like are there animation teams that would help you with that or am I on my own?
>>1069210 Plenty of options. Last time I checked, MetroPCS was about the cheapest, and they're famously flexible (no contracts). I don't actually use them (like many cellphone customers, I'm lazy and have stayed with my current company for many years just out of inertia), but my brother does and loves them. Dunno how good their coverage is in Chicago, but it's fine in other metro areas (I live in San Francisco and my brother lives in Boston, and his phone has been fine, and cheap, in both).
>>1067902 It completely depends where you travel to. I would say about half the places I've visited are as you described, and they are all places with a significantly lower cost of living/travel and are often considered "third world." Travel to more developed places, and you see less of this shit. It's usually more expensive but not always.
First, it depends on your nationality. I'm from EU so I don't really need any of these because of Schengen. If you're from abroad, then the first step is to check your embassy's website, they might have tips for expats. Enjoy, Prague is a wonder !

Welcome to the globalized world of the 21st century. The Cultural Marxists have ensured that any trace of national identity has been stamped out. They claim they want diversity but by inviting hordes of third world trash into Western countries they are creating a mongrel race and culture that is the same everywhere - the opposite of diversity. Travel is fast becoming pointless.
My only advice is to seek out those rare countries on planet Earth who are not afraid to reject the Politically Correct dogma and embrace their unique traditions and ethnic pride.
>>1066528 >going traveling to fix my problems back home There's the real problem here. Travel doesn't fix shit it just put you in a different place for some time. If you do it long term the problems back home might disappear but if it's just a short trip nothing will change.
I live in the USA (Chicago) and I am thinking about relocating somewhere else because as soon as Illinois, which is BROKE, can't afford to hand out food stamps anymore, all hell will break loose.
I'd like to move out to a more rural location, yet still within a few hour drive of a larger city if need be. Living near a quaint, artsy small town is good too.
I love to garden, and food production/self-sustainability is a high priority for me. I'd like to live where land and housing is cheap and own a few acres. I'm politically more on the conservative... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Go move to North Carolina. If you want that rural lifestyle head towards the mountains but you'll still be within an hour or two drive of Asheville and Boone. Its got the vibe that you are looking for and it doesn't have too many "progressive lefties" out there. Being in the mountains you'll have some snow but nothing like it is up north. Also North Carolina has a good reputation for having a friendly population, especially in the region area. I live in the Piedmont but its a few hours drive to the mountains and its not very rural here.
The one and only thing that keeps me from being extremely interested in that area is the hot, humid summers. I can't stand them! Cold, snow > hot & humid But mountains always provide shelter and interesting weather patterns locally.
The Coachella 2016 lineup is out and I'm torn whether to go or not. Can you guys give me some advice whether it's worth it?
Here's some background info: >friend offering to sell me a ticket for first weekend >have to decide by the end of the week >I have wanted to go to a music festival for years but never been (have been to many concerts before) >last year came up with the idea of going to Coachella >lineup...

>>1066347 I've wanted to go to Coachella the past few years, and this lineup is pretty terrible. The only day I would consider going (personally) is Saturday, but for me it's not worth the flight from Chicago to California for one day of festival, let alone the fucking 2 hour drive from LA to Coachella, not including the ungodly amount of traffic there will be on the way.
Go if you want, but I would save my money for another festival if I were you OP.
What do in Paris? Saw most of the main sights already. Interested a lot in history, French Revolution, theatre and especially everything free/cheap. Where can I eat without going bankrupt? Thanks /trv/
>Interested a lot in history, French Revolution, theatre and especially everything free/cheap. When it comes to theatre very few things are cheap in Paris, let alone free. if you have been in the big museums already, start to dig deeper. I'd recommend the Cluny museum for medieval art, great collection, beautiful building, free for students. >Where can I eat without going bankrupt? 15th arrondissement, arround the Pernety metro station.
1st of all, Cluny is pretty boring. I would say go to Musee Carnavalet and Musee de la chasse et de la nature, both in Marais. Musee de l'Homme has also just recently reopened if you didn't see it yet.
Why would you go to 15th, it's fucking insanely boring. There are a lot of places around Belleville or Strasbourg St. Denis for example where you can eat for a decent price, and it's way more interesting area than the 15th. Also Le Comptoir General next to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1063886 >Where can I eat without going bankrupt? Rue Mouffetard, Latin Quarter. It's not all cheap, it has some expensive places but also lots of mid-range places if you want a 'genuine' french meal using the day's set menu. And lots of cheap baguette places for students.
>>1068890 Your sister could get hit by a car walking down the street. Or hit by a falling meteor. Or murdered in the supermarket. Anywhere can be considered dangerous. If you live in fear, you'll end up wasting your life playing it safe and not doing anything at all. Maybe she has been doing research? It's not for you to decide.
Also, Central America is a pretty broad term. I'll assume you can't name a country their either, and seems stupidity runs in your family.
>>1068890 Does she speak any spanish? If she doesnt she will need to be very careful and shouldnt stray too far off the tourist trails, since shes alone. If she is outgoing (or good looking) she will probably meet people in hostels that will look out for her, women and men
Anyway, my sister felt the same way about me when i wanted to travel thru mexico. I didnt listen to her and we had a big fight about it.
I went anyway and it turned out to be the best trip of my life.
My spanish then was 4 years of high... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
