What factors do you use to decide where you want to travel to next?
Traveling the first time on my own and I want to go for a few months in SEA, India, or South America. I read about the different countries but that only tells me so much. I'm American, speak reasonable spanish, and I tend to prefer rural locations.
I am currently a college student and ROTC Cadet in school for the next 4 years. After that I will spend likely the next 20 years of my life in the service..
The only problem with this is that I would really like to travel at some point before I get too old (I want to see the young crowd, and I mean carefree traveling - closer to living there than being a tourist). I'm 19 and have never left the America before.
I currently have some money available but I don't really know what I need to get to where I want to go. Is it really as easy as just buying a plane... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

You need a valid passport, money and legal documentation. Legal documentation means visa and possibly other stuff like vaccination proof and whatnot. Check the consulate webpage of the countries you want to visit to see if you need a visa (and any other documents). If you do, check the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1131182 >>"before I get too old" Just wanted to say that during my trip in SE Asia I met people aged 50 years old and up, traveling in groups, couples and solo. Some of them slept in simple hotels if not guesthouses (including dorms). Only you decide if you are too old :)
Thinking of going to Scotland in early August with my GF. We're both Eurofags, fairly well travelled, been to most of Europe, but not Scotland. I've always sorta wanted to go (I've been to Ireland and southern England), and I like whisky and the funny accent, and that seemed reason enough to start researching it.
We're looking at early August, which is not my ideal travel time (tourist hordes everywhere), but my work is based on multi-year contracts and so happens my current contract is up at the end of August before the new one kicks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I think Orkney is worth seeing, at least if you are interested in archaeologic things like stone circles, barrows, and brochs. You can get a bus from Inverness to the ferry at John O'Groats, and then back on a bus to Kirkwall, and travel around the islands by bus and ferry. But if you only have 10-11 days, you might prefer the Hebrides.
>Thinking about going on holiday to Turkey this summer >Main concerns are the refugees and safety
Can someone who maybe lives there or has recently been to Turkey in the tourist places such as Bodrum/Dalaman/Antalaya tell me about the safety of the region, I know there's been a few terrorist attacks in Turkey and in tourist places in other countries like Egypt and Tunisia.

The tourist places are perfectly safe, I would not worry. The ones you mentioned see millions of tourists every year and that is not stopping. If anything, you will get things a bit cheaper currently because they have to attract people somehow.
But trust me when I say that the tourist places you mentioned are not on the target list of the main conflict going on in Turkey, the PKK-TC (Turkish Government) one. Many of the more recent bombings have been 'guerilla' attacks by "revolutionary forces", or whatever you like to call... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi! Well Izmir used to be a prime spot for people to try and set over to the Greek islands. But in recent times with the deals the Turkish government has struck with the EU, the number has decreased immensely. I am sure there will still be Syrians in the city trying to set over or just working in Izmir now (there are now a lot of undocumented Syrians and Iraqis working low-paid jobs in Turkey), but you should not be worried about them. If you're staying in hotels with water parks, you won't come in contact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Head across that white (Ha'penny) bridge in the pic, and you're in Temple Bar, which is where it's all at, touristic pub-wise. Burdock's fish and chips is cheap and safe. Grafton Street is also great for buskers and crowds.
Are trains fun to travel on, is it worth it? I've been living in Chicago for a few years, and they have a shit ton of train lines that run anywhere from the suburbs to trans-state rails to across the country. I'm considering picking a line and traveling somewhere for the day.
>>1134182 As a mode of transportation, US trains can e Hellish -- outside of certain commuter corridors where they are OK. Trains geared more towards excursion runs can be a fine, if touristy, ways to see some landscape.
This is probably a stupid question but I figured one of you guys might know the answer. I'm going to be traveling around Central America in a few weeks and I know Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador are part of the Central America border control agreement that allows me to stay for 90 days without a visa however if I stay the 90 days and wanted to stay longer could I just travel to say Belize for a couple days and then go back? Would that reset the 90 days? Also does that apply to most countries with tourist visas? like if I leave the country for a few days and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
i made the mistake of getting travel insurance for my car through a third party. It was a waste as the car rental company doesn't recognize it anyway and they require you to buy their insurance unless you throw down a huge down payment.
Inspired by another thread I just saw, I've decided to ask people to rate my planned route. It's meant to be a 1-month trip and I plan on using mostly trains to move between countries. I'm also planning to spend most of my time touring around cities, using buses / bicycles. I'll try to couchsurf my way through the trip, hopefully meeting lots of friends and creating lifelong memories in the process. Would not object (it is actually pretty cool) if I could visit some villages / nature reserves along my travels.
Would also love other tips... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1133600 German here. Don't take the Autobahn if you want to see small villages and medium cities. On the bigger roads you can still go 100km/h You only want to see Berlin and Cologne? I would prefer very much Hamburg over Cologne. The "feeling" of Hamburg is great imho.
>>1133610 I'll try seeing if i can fit it in! thank you.
>>1133640 I'm planning to take a train through germany, i'm choosing hamburg over cologne because: a. it is highly recommended by some friends b. i have friends i can meet there c. it's much more "on the way" compared to hamburg thank you for your thoughts though.
