I'm currently going through the sticky but i figured im just gonna drop the question anyway.
So a few buddies and I are planning on going to Japan. Now, we are still orientating but the idea is to visit Tokyo and Kyoto for 7 - 10 days. Imo 7 days is too short and we should 10 days. I'm getting a lot of different opinions about life in Japan and how expensive it is. (Hotels/food/nightlife) I'm kinda looking for someone who knows more about the subject and can suggest a game plan for lets say a 10 day trip. It doesnt have to be super specific, some...

Hi /trv/ I don't lurk often here but Ive been having this idea stuck in my mind for a while and this seems like the right forum to discuss it. I would like to start a trip to different countries in order to learn different martial arts from around the world, something like that show that used to air in History channel, I live in Mexico so I was thinking into going all the way to the south to Brazil, learn some bjj and then travel from Europe all the way to Japan doing the same, this seems like a wild dream for me but this seems to be the best era to travel/back packing/road...

Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out whether im gonna visit London or not. I don't really have a good reason other than the fact that I haven't been there yet. If I go i'll probably only stay a few days there so i'm not really sure if its worth it.
London for 4 nights, mostly because I'm bored. yay or nay?
>>1063363 Sorry for taking this long, had forggoten about this aahahha, i'm from Manaus, you can hit me up when you get here, maybe i can tell you which places you should fo etc. well... Brazil is not a safe country, Manaus is a great a beautiful city, but is not THAT safe. The thing is: walk with your thins always hidden, don't have your camera always showing, put your phone on your pocket, the money on your pocket as well, or your bag maybe, don't go around showing off, people can literally put a knife on...

Hey I'm going to be solo travelling for 10 days in the Rockies/mid-west during summer. My final destination is Boston where I am meeting a friend to continue travelling. Any recommendations on places to visit in the mid-west or the Rockies (if I have time) bearing in mind that I must end up in Boston? I'm interested in Chicago and Kansas city, but I don't know much about the region so I'm hoping to get some recommendations Thanks.
>>1061526 Thailand in general. Pattaya is fine, A lot of people focus on the whores there, whether as a pro or con. But what they neglect to realize is their presence makes the normal chicks that much easier do to relativism.
All right so I'm looking for cities with a very specific type of climate, and I'm looking with the intent of actually settling down and living there so keep that in mind.
Anyways, the climate I'm looking for is a climate where summers rarely go above 30C (86F) and winters rarely below 20C (68F), although some slight deviation from this would be acceptable. Ideally it should be coastal/by the sea, including islands. Lastly, it should be as dry as possible. The closer to 0mm precipitation per year the better, and the highest I will settle for is 150mm / year.
So in other words, some type of moderately warm coastal dry desert climate with relatively little yearly variation in temperature is what I'm looking for. The Canary Islands fit the bill almost perfectly in terms of temperature, and Antofagasta (Chile) is very much ideal in terms of precipitation, however I don't speak a fucking lick of spanish (Norwegianfag here) but I would be willing to learn it. If it's in the middle east / anywhere muslim don't bother, but beyond that I'm open to pretty much anything (again, I'll be wanting to settle down there, not get beheaded).
If anyone would bother to suggest some cities I would greatly appreciate it.
>>1064372 Here's a pic containing climate data for Antofagasta, Chile. Close to ideal in terms of what I'm looking for although winters could be a bit warmer. Also, not trying to offend anyone, but I've heard Antofagasta is a somewhat gritty-looking city.
>>1064374 I've thought about SoCal and the english-speaking bit is very tempting, in addition to temperature being close to perfect, but I feel like there would be just a little bit too much precipitation for me to accept with LA being at 300-400mm / year, SF at a whopping 600mm / year and San Diego at a more acceptable 250mm / year.
Let me put my situation into context: I grew up on the norwegian west coast, where there's about 3000 - 4000 mm of rain / year, in addition to horrible temperatures at around 0 - 15C year round. I hate the rain so god damn much it literally gives me severe depression and anxiety. The less the better.
That being said, I'm not completely against the idea of San Diego. Do you have any other, drier suggestions? If not, thanks for your reply anyways, really appreciate it.
Any recommendations for visiting Russia/Ukraine? Ill probably take a contiki tour or similar. I plan on having sex with as many locals as possible and maybe doing one of those 'meet and greet' nights to find a wife. Im in good shape with a high 5 figure salary in electronics, so it shouldnt be an issue.
Im also considering the Philippines as another alternative.
Hey /trv/, I'm visiting Poland soon. I'm going alone (This is the first time I've ever traveled solo) and I was wondering if any of you could recommend something decent to do or see in either Wroclaw or Warsaw?
Hey, I'm an Oregonian heading to New Zealand in February. I'm gonna be on the north island, spending time in the cities and the country. I have a couple questions:
How easy/hard is it for a foreigner to get laid in NZ? Will women flock to my boring ass accent? Do ya'll have tindr?
I wear a black levi's denim jacket a lot. I'm planning on taking it but read something somewhere (I think a lonely planet page) that there's gangs in NZ that use black jackets as their uniform. Should I leave my favorite jacket at home?

Hello, fellow /trv/alers. I am going to Istanbul for five days in two weeks. What should I do there? I'm into culture and history mostly, although I also like to meet locals and go to bars. I also enjoy good food. The thing is, I don't have alot of money to spend. Tell me about some cool places to go to, without becoming absolutely broke. Also, how is public transport between Ataturk airport and Sultanahmet?
Great time to go. 1 USD euals 3.92 Lira (TRY) stay in a hostel cheap. To get to Sultanahmet from the ataturk airport: - go to the metro stop in the basement of the airport - ride the only subway there (the red m1 line) get off at Zeytinburnu the 6th stop. walk to the blue t1 tram line and get on . take tram T1 toward Eminonu. Get off at Sultanahmet (the 16th stop). 1 or 2 day do all the touristy shit. sulanahmanet (hiya sofia, blue mosque, basillica systern, topkapi palace), check out grand bazar(i believe cloased sunday). check out galata bridge and walk accross. New mosque... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

You can eat like a king, like 4 meals a day for like 30 lira. $7.7 usd a day. try the aryan dairy drink. google best tukish meals they are the real ones. meet fellow travels are ur hostel orw whever ur stayin.
Food: Pine State Biscuits Giant biscuit sandwiches filled with fried chicken and other things.
Museums: Oregon Rail Heritage Center Home to a couple huge steam locomotives, some of which still run. One of them is the Southern Pacific 4449, one of the prettiest surviving locomotives in the US from the end of the steam era.
If I were visiting this town, these are some places I would go.
Hey, /trv/. I'm a 26 year old American guy. I have a 4 year university degree, no university debt and about $20,000 in savings. Recently I've been interested in looking into doing some further studies in Europe. I don't have a set plan but am leaning toward a Master's in something Social Science-y. I am also open to to doing like a technical/trade qualification, though I don't know how viable and transferable the credential would be going back to the US when I finish?
I am most interested in going to: The UK, Nordic Countries/Scandinavia, Germany,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
OP, do your research on the universities and countries they're based in. Some countries in Europe have free education for all students but this is mostly for bachelor's degree. I think only Germany has free master's degree education for foreigners. In Sweden for example it's free for EU nationals but those outside have to pay. Now the prices are still much lower than what you'd pay in the US. The programs I looked at around 15-25k and the programs last 1 year only so if compared to the $50-100k masters degrees in the US, it's cheap and you'll... Comment too long.

>>1064337 Go see >Haghia Sophia >Blue Mosque >Topkapi Palace Those three are all near each other, and can be seen easily in one day. On a main street south of these you can a place where you can go down to a cistern that was used by the Greeks/Romans to hold water. Turks don't use it cause Islam says non-running water is unclean. There's an Archaeological History Museum nearby I think, but I'm not sure
