I'm sure it's a troll post but I'm extremely fond of Finland.

I mean, everywhere is dangerous if you go to the wrong places, and everywhere is safe if you go to the right places.
I've been to Belize and Guatemala and loved both. Belize is English-speaking and more touristy and has an absolutely gorgeous reef right off the coast. I didn't go outside of Belize City and the surrounding islands.
In Guatemala, Guatemala City is very westernized and you could probably get by with English (I speak Spanish and used it a lot, but most of my hostel workers... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Locals will see you as a oddity, but there's tourists on every train now. They ride the train for a few stops because they can't fly to where they want to go. They don't see why someone would want to do it.
If you're traveling by yourself, it's difficult without any Russian. Try riding Amtrak only speaking Russian, see how far it gets you.
You need a visa. It's an extra cost to going to Russia, but unless you're interested in people smuggling you need a visa.
Try riding a train closer to where you are first, see if you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How cool is it to go along the railway but not in a straight shot? Many stops and detours along the way. I'm planning on doing this this summer, but I'm not sure what I'm doing yet. I study Russian btw
Hey /trv/ currently making travel plans for summer and could use a bit of help. Don't really have the money to travel overseas this year so I decided to stay in Europe. To make things even cheaper, I figured I'd like to try some long distance walking, for 2-3 weeks maybe 4 if I can stretch it at work. Ideally I'd go in July and/or August after my college exams.
I already had the G20 in Corsica in mind but when I realized that it's mostly just walking through mountainous regions, I kind of didn't like the idea that much. Another thing I was considering... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064210 If you're already an experienced hiker you can go anywhere. Just saying this because when I started out travelling I had this long europe track planned out, but when it hit the fan, I couldn't stand to the hike with my overweight backpack. Went hitchhiking after a week on foot. Now I go everywhere hitchhiking.
Sounds like you've got an awesome summer planned. The G20 is my dream; what's wrong with mountains? You want more culture, evenings in pubs, that sort of thing? I guess I can't recommend anything specific. I've attempted several of the GR trails in southern Europe but they were all so badly marked, it made life hell. And a lot of it was just walking along farm roads and 4x4 tracks, which isn't always nice. Whoever's in charge of the GR trails needs to get their shit together. The only exception was the GR11 which runs along the Spanish... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1064529 >>1064529 (You) Another pic from the GR11. Also, there are some great distance hikes in Scotland, but they won't take you more than 2 weeks. Maybe spend one week in Scotland (the West Highland Way takes about six days) then fly somewhere else for a 2 week hike.
As a final suggestion, Morocco is way better than Europe for distance hiking. There are no marked trails, but you can follow donkey paths between villages for weeks, and never have to worry about... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been many places, but now my feet are sore. I'd like to go some place and stay for a while. I hoping to get residency somewhere, and I'm hoping it helps that I have a PhD. It is from a fairly good school, but not in an area with high demand (psychology). I know generally the regular immigration laws of countries and which are easier, but would anyone know of countries where my PhD might help me get in?
>>1060987 >but would anyone know of countries where my PhD might help me get in? Most countries care more about where you are from now as your citizenship, more than anything else. As a well-traveled person, it's surprising to me you don't know that already.
>>1061182 I think you're looking at it wrong. I think you need to find the reason to go to a country first, then go to that country. The reason is going to be that there was some sort of fellowship that you applied for from your hom e country. I live in Thailand and my doctor here has had fellowships in both Germany and the US.
Hi, im planning to do a camping trip to northern/northwestern ukraine. My ancestors lived there, but sadly i have no living relatives there anymore My question: How easy is it to get a simcard for a mobile phone ? I speak very limited russian and ukrainian, but i can read both alphabets. I know they are cheap as dirt there. If there is something like a translator i could "rent" i would be happy to do so. Another quick question: Is it hard to buy a train ticket ? I just need a short ride to my destination.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

>>1066137 Simcards I *think* should be dead easy to get in loads of little shops or kiosks.
Train tickets? Not necessarily so easy if you don't speak (or read) the languages. Probably easier in small towns than in the bigger cities/stations (finding the right ticket window in Kyiv, even for someone who does speak the languages is time consuming itself)
Where are you based? realrussia.co.uk (yes I know...) are very good at getting and sending out train tickets for most of the post-soviet countries, albeit with a hefty mark-up.
Also, where to do you intend to travel to and from by train in Ukraine? I'll try and find a timetable
I am visitng South Lake Tahoe for snowboard in 3 weeks. As I am from Europe I have no idea how skipasses work there. My friend just got back from there saying that she had to pay 250$/day, that just sounds riddiculous! Whole process seems just way more complicated than in Europe.
Can anyone tell me how to do it efficiently? Thanks for all your help!
St P and Moscow are ok, but that's it. Lots of Russia is very dull, and hardly exciting stuff. If you're a Slav-boo I can recommend the Baltics and eastern Europe in general, but unless there's anything especially about Russia, I don't hugely endorse it. t. been to russia twice
