>>1063668 oh shit my friend lived there for 2 weeks, He said it was the most beautiful place ever. From my memory: Dont eat the fruits from trees that grow in the streets, Theyre just for looks. Weed is basicly legal there and very cheap and good. The nightclubs are OK. and nearby there should be a big bull fighting arena, one of the biggest. Just enjoy your stay there. :)
Hey /trv/ I'm Chilean and I'm going to New York today (pretty long trip), I'm going to see the Ball Drop there. But the thing is that I have a little bit more than $500 bucks to spend in whatever I want. What would be a good idea to spend it in? Also, What places should I visit?
>Empire state building >Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller center >Reflecting Pools at the World Trade center + the 9/11 museum is decent from what I hear >Wall Street (various financial museums here but I just enjoy soaking up some of the architecture there) >Transit Museum >Bronx Zoo >Central Park >Walk/ bike across Brooklyn...

What do you guys do with your apartments while extended traveling? I feel like the only reason I don't travel for more than a month is that I have an apartment and lease. My roommates would not want me subletting and that sound like a pain in the ass anyway. I don't want to give up my apartment because I really like it though.
>>1063571 One of the major aspects of long term travel is losing your attachments to places and possessions. I travel when my lease is up, after coming back I stay with the parents and find a new place to live in.
If you want to travel long term you better get used to giving up your apartment unless you're wealthy enough to pay for it and travel.
I'm trying to get all 50 states and I've got a free day so I thought I'd drive to Rhode Island for the day. It's about a four hour drive one way, is there anything worth seeing for about six hours? Or should I just wait and plan a New England trip later to see it wth Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine?
>>1063450 Unless you count an Amtrak ride, it's surprisingly hard to get to RI. The faster NYC-Boston routes bypass the state. Since it's so tiny, the only destinations are Providence, Newport and any waterfront community where you can attend a clambake/barbecue. I lived in NYC for 5 years and go to grad school in New England so I've managed to miss it for 9-10 year at this point; I even planned a dedicated trip but it was thwarted by the shittiness of US rail. New Hampshire and Maine were surprisingly cool so... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to Las Vegas in March. With my dad and my brother. It's a birthday present for my dad. I've already planned to spent one day driving to Grand Canyon. What is a "must do" in Vegas? Funny thing: My dad would never gamble, but Vegas is on his "to do list"
>>1063402 >What is a "must do" in Vegas? A show; You buy tickets for a show he might want to see. Buy them soon, so you get great seats. Dinner. Make a reservation at a couple choices, and then cancel the one(s) he says "no" about. Both of these can be expensive ^^ but that is indeed the point of vegas. >Funny thing: My dad would never gamble, but Vegas is on his "to do list" Don't consider it a key part of visiting...

>>1063402 I went last fall for the weekend, shows are good (pick any that interest the group) - surprise highlight of the trip was ATV riding out in the desert, there are 2 or 3 small companies that do it.
I enjoyed it because was getting tired of drinking and gambling/being indoors.

There's a fucking dope vegan restaurant that specializes in vegan foods that taste like their meat counterparts. I took my girlfriend there last year (we live upstate). We shared the chicken wings, I had a club, she had a chicken parm sandwich.
The point is I'm not vegetarian and almost never order something without meat, but this shit was good. Very inexpensive too.
It's called Red Bamboo. Hole in the wall joint not far from its subway stop, just across from NYU Law. Not expensive.
I'm not into buying unnecesary shit so just enough for some cigs, food etc. Really depends on the prices. Just think about an amount of money that you can throw away without being seriously screwed for the rest of your trip.
>>1063354 Geez, could you be more vague? No one knows your spending habits like yourself, or even where you are headed in Europe. Add up your daily meals, like google up some menus if you are that oblivious, or what kind of transportation needs you might need, and then add in some incidentals like a beverage stop a couple of times if hot, or coffee, and maybe a pastry or something you walked past. Maybe you buy local goods, who knows? I buy art, sometimes clothing or shoes, and at times, local gems if they are uniquely mined... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1063413 I think you misinterpreted my question, friendo. I was only asking people how much they personally take with them, not how much I should plan on spending over a week, I have that shit under control.
Hire a driver for a day, it's cheap. Ask him to take you around. See stuff like the rice fields, the volcano, visit a coffee farm and buy the famous cat shit coffee, see the sunset at the temple of Tanah Lot, and other cool temples too.
I want to combine workaway somewhere in NW Europe with cycling there, in winter. Now i don't mind wet, i don't mind snow and col, but wet and cold sucks balls. And so with recent winter being very confused, where in NW europe is there / are they expecting a good amount of snow ? say Jan. / Feb. I know no one really knows what the weather is going to do so therefore my next question: where is it good cycling in winter NW Europe? Something like Denmark ?
I'm going to the Basque Country next year for a semester, have never travelled before, where shoudl I go in or near the Basque Country? I'm more interested in nature sightseeing and old buildings shit like that
Bilbao is very great. It's a modern city but so comfy, the casco viejo (=city centre) is very nice. You can take the furnicular to see all the town from a hill. I've made the trip from Bilbao to Vitoria by feet, the landscape is very nice, and basque people are very nice. Vitoria is less cool, not because of the people, but because it's little and there aren't a lot of things to do there, but you can visit the city centre which is quite nice.
You take a little funicular (cable-pulled) tram to the top of the mountain where an old castle sits. A very small amusement park is located there, which would be of no consequence, except for its roller coaster, Montana Suiza. It's one of the oldest running roller coasters on Earth and possibly the oldest with steel track. At one point during the ride you go past an edge where you can see down the cliffs to the sea below. It's an absolutely breathtaking hidden gem that no one really knows about.
