Moving to Salt Lake City for reasons out of my control.

What can I expect? All I know about the place is mountains and Mormons.

beautiful nature, nice people. cops with too much time on their hands, a mellow downtown. I visited for a weekend so not the best authority on the area. I just said the cops thing because that's what an aquaintance told me

Just because it's the Mormon mothership, it doesn't mean the state is alcohol-free. There is one notable microbrew named Uintah Brewing Company, for instance.

Also, there is a family-run large scale theme park north of SLC in Farmington named Lagoon. Tons of good roller coasters.

The state also has lots of epic nature like Bryce Canyon.

Also, Mormons are nicest people you will ever meet, even if you are not Mormon yourself.

Overall, the Wasatch Front (SLC metro area) is actually a pretty nice place to live. There are definitely worse places.

Howdy folks! I could really use some help with future traveling plans. This June, around mid-june, I want to do a cross country trip across the United States. now I have a bunch of questions about this.

1. If I go mostly by train/bus/walking what would the recommend minimal amount of money one would need to save for such a trip. Im working right now and may have $900 by the end of the month and obviously I will work until then but would 2grand be okay? I am planning on the trip being 2 months long and I have no problem being homeless i.e. staving most of the time.

Step 1 for traveling across the US: rent a car.

Land-based cross-country mass transit in the US is a joke. With a car, you will be able to get wherever you need to go and get there on your own terms. All you need to worry about is paying for gas, and it's actually pretty cheap now with the Saudis purposely driving down oil prices to suffocate their competition.

Once more, there is no debate here. To travel across the US, you NEED a car.
>>
>>1064633
Also, in terms of gas prices, I calculated what I currently spend on my own car for gas and it comes out to ~$1.00 every 12.5 miles. So, if you were to take a 3,000-mile trip (roughly the distance from coast to coast), you would need ~$250.00 for gas.

So /trv/, what are some "attractions" in your city (or town, or wherever) that visitors should see when they're there (or even just in the area)?

>Sudbury, Ontario

>Bridge Of Nations (pic)
>The Big Nickel
>Science North

There's also the Superstack (smokestack that's about the height of the Empire State Building), but that's less of an attraction and more of a...something.

Not really a lot here...

Tampa Bay, Florida.

The most notable things that would interest outsiders would be the beaches (frequently rated best in the continental US) as well as Busch Gardens (theme park with roller coasters) and the Dali Museum (largest private collection of Salvador Dali artwork).

Have you lived in Barcelona? If so, tell me about it.

I just accepted a job offer there, starting in late March. I can speak Spanish well enough, unlike German in my current city of Berlin. Despite the fact that it's of course it's part of Catalonia, I'm kind of pumped up to move to a city where I won't feel like an alien.

How is/was it to live there? How did you find a place to rent? I'm interested in whatever stories you have.

I saw that there was a tour operator going to Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site as a part of a tour of the former USSR, but it was lumped in with things like old prison camps and monuments. The tour was expensive and lasted about a week.

Is there any tour group that would take me directly there, possibly spend a night, and then head back? I'm short on time and would be fine with no more than 4 days in Kazakhstan.

Any experience with custom tours using Caravanistan? I think it's too far off to request a quote, but all the other places have outrageously priced tours and Caravanistan seems decent.

Hi /trv/,
I've been wondering about something for a while and I decided to come here with my thoughts. I've met tons of wonderful people while traveling and I still keep in touch with many of them today. They've offered to host me if I ever came to visit their city and I've offered the same in return. The problem is that most of these people aren't really in places I'm currently interested in visiting. So that got me thinking..

Does anyone know of a service where you can exchange vacations? For example, I'd like to stay with a local...

If you're from one of these locations and are interested in visiting Germany I would be glad to host you and show you around as long as you return the favour and host me in your country. I'm also slightly interested in Latin America but it isn't necessarily at the top of my list.

So if you're interested, reply to me and maybe...

Sort of, yes. But I want it to be more than just staying on someone's couch for free. I want to be able to have someone take the time to allow me to divulge in their country. I look at this idea as sort of basically looking for someone to be a travel mate for a certain amount of time in their country.

For example, I own a car and would not mind at all if someone from South Africa wanted to do a small road trip through Germany. We could visit cities or even the mountains in southern Germany. Once that roadtrip...

How do I get the cheapest airline tickets possible?

I'm beginning to plan my big Europe trip (first solo travel) and I want to buy a ticket from sydney sometime around end of march/beginning of april. Thing is, provided it's the cheapest, I'm willing to land anywhere from Moscow to Diyabakir to London. Also, I understand that prices can fluctuate a lot depending on when you buy tickets, is it simply they get more expensive closer to the date, or is there any more to it?

This is sort of an alternative solution but instead of spending x amount of hours trying to find the cheapest flight you can just use skyskanner or some other cheap flight website and use all the time you saved to sell some old junk in your house that you don't need or make money some other way that's within reach for you. The more time you spend trying to save some extra money on airline tickets the less profitable it becomes so don't waste too much time on it, eh.
>>
Cheapest routes in the USA usually involve booking witth a shitty budget airline, like Jet Blue, to a major hub, like JFK(NYC) ), then getting deals/cheap flights out if there. It can suck moving your luggage from one airline to another and it takes more coordination on your part. Skyscanner is the best one stop shop for researching this. Or you just find the cheapest flights out of your country to your destination or close to it, then find cheap tickets to that airport, and cheap tickets from where the plane lands to your final destination (these primary and last leg tickets...

There really arent that many tricks to it. For a random number, let's say there are 13 "cheap" seats on any given flight, and then those fare codes are sold out. The next fare up has 6 seats, and so on, right up to travel day prices. Each airline operates their codes per their wishes. Can be 20 different...

sometimes the girls aren't girls.

Sup guys,

My friends mom died so I had to fly to Toronto to make the funeral. She needs a distraction so I was thinking of kidnapping her for a couple of days (with or without a bunch of friends).

Any ideas? I was originally thinking that collingwood spa thing but I'm definitely open to ideas. It would be so much easier if it were the summer time.

Most patches of grass in downtown Denver have homeless white people sleeping on cardboard. Finding a flophouse shouldn't be that difficult, but since nearly all of the homeless are white you're going to need to like opiates and/or meth. If you want cheap tract housing you'll be looking up and down I-25 but if you want to get high by yourself under the stars then look near the Utah border. There's a 100+ mile stretch of I-70 with no gas stations where you can grow mushrooms and ingest research chemicals in survivalist peace.
