Got a job offer to work a season in the oil rigs in Alberta, Canada. The pay is a little less than I get here but I would like it for the experience.
My question is, are there a lot of ethnics in Alberta? Like I want to hang out with my own people mostly, how bad is the muslim problem there? Is it full of chinese and indians? What are good towns to hang out in that are going to be mostly whites?
Sorry but if I wanted to be around ethnics I'd go to Bali
Hi /trv/, eurofag here. Me and my gf would like to go somewhere warm in February for a week or so. As our budget is limited to roughly 400 € p.p. we cant fly to tropical destinations. So far we came up with two possibilities:
Egypt/Red Sea: You can get really cheap flights + hotels now but I figured theres not much to do besides swimming/snorkeling and for that the weather is probably a bit cold.
Marrakesh: Seems to be a very interessting city, but flights are a quite expensive.
Lisbon: City looks nice, flights are cheap but no t-shirt weather.

Tshirt weather is tough. But, you could enjoy some greek seaside or something with warm water, right?
Hey /trv/, I have a flight to Bangkok on January 5th. I will be in Thailand (mostly north), Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China. I plan to spend about a month in each, maybe less for Laos and Cambodia. The flight back to my home country is on May 24th.
1. I read in travelfish.org that lonely planet's regional guides are "hardly worth using" compared to country-specific books. Should I leave my new copy of "vietnam cambodia laos & northern thailand travel guide" at home and buy a 2nd hand copy of each country's guide when I enter it?
2. I plan to buy sandals in Bangkok (Something lighter and more suitable than my hiking boots for everyday non-trekking activities). Travelfish recommended Teva's brand. What are your opinions? And where should I buy it?
3. I've been told I don't need to buy a new camera since Iphone 4s's one is good enough. Is it true?
Only worry I'd have for using you phone for pictures is that you migjt not be able to have it juiced up on power when you need to take your great scenic pictures, where a camera doesn't dies out of battery in the same way.
Hey /trv/, can you recommend any places that are similar to the resorts in the Maldives?
I ended up flying there on a spur earlier this year. Work was slowly destroying my soul, and later that week after having enough of office shit I was on the flight. It ended up being the single most relaxing experience of my life.
I usually never travel back to the same place twice, but in 2016 I'm considering taking another 7-9 days to relax. Or alternatively, I would find something with a similar experience a bit closer to Europe: Sun, beaches, hot, not crowded.

>>1063498 Since I live in Paris as a Dutchman I have a lot of travel goals for France: - spend a weekend at Mont Sant Michel with my gf - go to Marseille and visit the South (Toulouse, Montpellier, Carcasonne as well but the main goal is to go to Marseille since I heard lots of nice stories about it) - go to the Alps for skiiing (just came back from les trois vallees but the snow was shit) - Visit the north with Lille as main destination or maybe go to Belgium for a weekend - do a grande randonee 1 around Paris...

No resolutions. Going on my first cruise with the girlfriend later this winter Taking her to Texas to visit my dad's side of the family (we live in MN). Those 2 trips will eat up a good chunk of my PTO but I'd like to do a (2nd annual) snowboarding trip, a (2nd annual) boundary waters camping trip and maybe a long weekend in reykjavik if I could.
borange county here, boyfriend got a gig in san fran and we're making it a long weekend. His show is on fri the 15th and we're staying till the 17th. Anything cool going on? Anyone wanna rent us out their place airbnb style for $$? Also I don't eat fruit but strict vegan due to my foodallergies(fucking kill me pls), anyone know any bomb restaurants to visit? Or museums or stuff? If not we're just gonna get drunk and explore the city, we've both been there before, but him only during gigs and me only during my lolistage
I've lived in the bay area for 10+ years and go into SF to screw around and get good food all the time. What kind of stuff are you guys into? Off the top of my head there is a LOT of good coffee and some good pastries/bakeries if you're into that, and at least 4 really cool museums. Do you want to know the touristy stuff, or have you guys already done that?
>>1065349 Hi from SF, and welcome. As far as vegan food is concerned, you will have no problems at all--we have more than a few all-veg restaurants, most all- or mostly-vegan, and nearly everywhere will have at least one vegan thing to eat. Herbivore, on either Divisadero in the Western Addition (between the Haight and Alamo Square, basically) or the Mission (Valencia and... 18th? 20somethingth? Between the 16th St and 24th St BART stations somewhere), is popular, reasonably tasty, all-vegan, and cheap. Valencia is also a major... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What do you guys do about cell phones while travelling abroad for an extended period of time? I'm going to be staying in Japan for 9 months and everyone tells me to use a SIM card, but I'm not entirely sure how they work.
Once the phone is unlocked, can you just use any old SIM card from an electronics store? Does it have to be a specific one depending on my phone model and/or service provider?
>>1065112 Once the phone is unlocked, considering it is dual-band or matches the band that country actually uses, then the SIM card is like buying time on a local carrier, very much like a Cricket, Boost, or other no-contract phone company operates in the US on the charge-me-up kind of basis.
I also suggest you have a wifi capable phone if possible, and an App like Viber or Magicjack, and getting family/friends involved with that.
If your carrier does work in the country you wish to visit, sometimes it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, I'm planning to go on a backpacking trip along the coast of chile (if you've seen Chile in a map, thats all there is I guess lol).
What I wanted to ask, has anybody been on a limited budget around chile? I'm planning to go with a little more than $1000 and to stay there for about five weeks. Any tips would be greatly appreciated :).
Where do you plan to stay during the nights? 1K is not really that much money and food will cost some too, you'll probably have to do some jobs like cleaning cars or something to earn money, there's also the fact that around this time of the year young people usually do the same thing as you here, so you might find some competition, or in the best of cases maybe find a group to stick to for a while.
Chile isn't a poor country, and it was already said that this is the busy time of year for traveling there so prices are a bit higher.
The peso has gone down, but I feel that $30/day gets you 2 of: food, shelter and transportation. Don't know what the hitchhiking is like there, should try to meet some Chileans on interpals and couchsurfing.
And most of Chile is actually in the valley between... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
OP, specify what part of Chile you'll be traversing. While skinny, it is a long country that covers pretty much half of latin america so it's not exactly a place you can see from north to south in 5 weeks.
Chile is probably the most expensive country in latin america. If you're staying 5 weeks that makes around 28 USD, which means around 200000 Pesos. With that money you'll be able pay for lodging in hostels (Around 10 USD is the average though consider a bit more in touristy or remote places), eat, and pay for transportation.

I've made a lot of posts about India over the last couple of years and decided to start a general. Use this thread as a place to share stories, post pictures, give opinions, organize /trv/ meet-ups, and, most importantly, ask questions.
I lived in New Delhi for a while and feel comfortable giving advice and tips about the city and its surroundings, as well as several other states within India. I'll be going back again from December until January, so if anyone wants to meet up, let me know! I don't have too much of a life outside of work, university, and travel, so I can probably respond to most questions pretty quickly unless I'm off on a trip.
>hard mode: no "designated or "poo in the loo"
I'll start off with a question: has anybody here ever been to Kolkota? I've been thinking of going there for a while. I'm not exactly sure why, but it seems chaotic, colorful, and vibrant. What were your experiences in the city and what would you suggest doing?
Also, since this question always comes up a lot:
>no, brown girls do not crave white cock. India is a pretty shitty destination for sex tourism unless you're planning to relocate there long-term
I may or may not be going to Punjab and New Dehli due to some recent events. Any idea of what I should expect there if I do go? I have been in New Dehli once before, but I was 5 years old and only have a vague memory of it. I cannot speak fluent Hindi or Punjabi before you ask, though I'm looking at resources online.
SoCal fag here. Traveling to Indiana in February, specifically to South Bend (Notre Dame) and might stay in Chicago for a few days. Never been outside of the west coast and sun belt ever before. What's the weather like in the Great Lakes state during February? Do I need to bring parkas and shit, or will a thick sweater do? Also, what should I expect in Indiana?
>>1064425 Indiana sucks generally and Northern Indiana is burnt the fuck out. South Bend is Notre Dame and NOTHING ELSE. Terre Haute is executions and a dot on a map. Gary has industrial history, a HUGE SKY BLUE BUILDING and Michael Jackson. It's feels like coal soot: more than 36 hours would be depressing, especially with Chicago so close and so much similar history all around the Great Lakes. If anything you'll realize how fucked up "Reconstuction" was.

I have questions for those who bike for vacation. I will be biking a total of 3 weeks. We estimate approximately 8 hours total per day for biking distance. We have stops in between but our stops are not at any locations, just mile markers.
How do I eat and drink without carrying lots of weight? We will be staying at hotels at night most nights. At most, we will need a day and a half of food and water in the event of an emergency.
What stretching do I need to do after each ride/during breaks? What additional exercise should I be doing to keep my legs from becoming... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You sound like you have zero idea what you're doing and have done zero research about it. Basically, you're looking to have /trv/ hold your hand every step of the way. I think the best advice anyone can offer you is this: If you have to ask what the price is, you can't afford it.
Hi /trv/, i'm from Alicante, Spain, and by the end of January i'm travelling to Malmö to stay 10+- days there, a pretty nice half swedish lady hosts me so everything about hosting is solved the best way possible. I'm looking for funny, cultural things to do there, but the tripadvisor reviews have its own limitations, so i wanted to know if somebody here could shed light on certain points: > Live shows -metal, jazz, alternative- on malmo & copenhague from 21st to 31st > Jam sessions Comment too long.

>>1062040 Sup Anon, I'm in Copenhagen at the moment and went over to Malmö the other day. Been here 7 days and it is definitely more than enough time here. I think 10 days in Malmö and coming over to CPH will be quite drawn out (Bur snow will be awesome)
the castle in Malmö is worth seeing with history and live animals n shit. The Turning Torso is also cool with great modern buildings with Swedish architecture.
I actually prefer Christiania to main CPH. People here seem slightly brainwashed and dronelike
>>1065374 Sounds cold. The right socks to wear will be a blend that contains wool. Think hiking/skiing/boot sock that contains some ability to make your feet last hours for walking in your shoes, and also not get cold if you perspire or get some snow in there. There's a saying in colder climates that "if it's cotton, you're dead."
>>1065374 I'm from Miami, anon. When I plan my packing, I tend to go high-tech brands suited for my needs. So, not sure if you have that access or disposable income, either or. I know, even in my great city, that it's really hard to find a 3-in-1 shell at a local store that isn't $$$ at like a Burlington or ski shop, and that you can land in Anchorage, and get one at the local Wal-Mart for $25 or hit up some great gear stores in D.C. before an overseas flight and get like a Eastern Mountain sports shell and nice...
