I'll be living abroad for a year and I was told not to drink water from the tap due to differences in filtration systems and there being an almost certain risk of getting sick.
How realistic is this? I can't imagine myself buying mountains of bottled water just to avoid drinking from the tap. I regularly go to the gym and when I do, I easily have to fill up my water bottle twice from the fountain. I'm not going to start lugging around expensive water everywhere.
>>1133476 I lived in Taipei for 1.5 years and drank tap water, but usually it either was filtered and/or boiled for tea because I only ever drank from the sink when home. When you're out, it's easier to step into a convenience store and buy a liter of cold water for a buck than hunt down a fountain to fill up. At school we had water dispenser units that spit out hot and cold filtered water.
I do remember my dad telling me to be cautious about drinking too much unfiltered tap water but I never really worried about it.
I've got the Greyhound twice, both times in the day time for 3 hour rides. The weirdest thing that happened was the kind black lady sat next to me gave me a Jehovahs Witness pamphlet. It was a bit awkward but she waited till right at the end of the ride so it wasn't too bad.
I hear that if you get it at night in the south then that's a different kind of experience, though.
Jesus christ. I did greydog bus from Providence to Denver back to Providence. 3 days. Worst fucking shit ever. Drivers are shit. Passengers are shit. The only way for me to live through it was I stayed fucked up. Smoke stop?? Smoke a bowl, drink booze, hope no one sat next to me, pass out. Repeat. This was before wifi and smart phones.
Spaghetti here, I wanna do my very first oversea travel what do you think, 2 weeks in Tokyo or 1 week in New York? I have money for one of these trips, but can't decide.
I fucking hate anime, jesus christ fuck off with that shit, I don't go there for jerking off to cartoons, I like japanese food a lot, I wanna go there for that, visiting temples, skyscrapers and shit and just for the novelty of the things that you can find there (from the shinkansen to the designated hi-tech shitting devices).
New York on the other hand would be much easier for me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1133296 You want to go to Italy to eat Pizza You want to go to the Netherlands to smoke weed You want to go to Japan to eat sushi You want to go to India to shit on the streets You want to go to France to eat baguette
>>1133290 Both are amazing places in their own ways. One of them isn't objectively a better place to visit than the other. Go with your gut instinct and remember that you're gaining a great experience, you're not missing out on one.
So, I've become jaded with American cities. I've been to Boston, Miami, New York, San Francisco, New Orleans, DC, and live in Los Angeles. Are there any new places out there that I can visit in December for a week? Sounds ignorant but I really do feel like I've seen all that there is to offer in America as far as cities go. Needs to be walkable or have a good public transit system as I won't be renting a car. Also open to cities in Canada or Mexico.
>>1133179 I do, I'm actually a pretty big national parks buff but as it will be winter it makes some places inaccessible or not ideal to visit. I'm also 23 and waiting for when rental car rates drop for me when I'm 25 before I go and see many of them.
So I'm headed to Turks and Caicos Islands for the first time next week. I'm staying at the Sands Resort.
I've done a bit of research but would love to hear from those who have been there. I'm looking for tips such as hidden gem restaurants/activities, night life (especially vice/party-related), and any other specific Do's/Dont's that anyone cares to share.
Hey /trv/ I'm staying in Canada for the entirety of December to January. I know its cold as balls but are there any activities places worth checking out? I was considering Churchill Manitoba for the northern lights and all that.
Hey /trv/. I'm keen to go somewhere in Jan/Feb 2017, I was thinking of either Europe or US/Canada (Australian here). I don't mind the cold but I'm afraid of not being able to do anything if there's heavy snow that forces things to close or anything like that. What recommendations do you have for places to travel in the Northern Hemisphere? Of course no one has control over the weather, so I'd just like to hear your best suggestions.

During the winter in Canada, expect all 'outside' summer attractions to be closed for the season, like gardens, old forts, etc. However, there are tons of winter attractions that open up, like ski hills and skating rinks etc. As for general closures, Canada is extremely hardy in terms of dealing with snow and things will only shut down during the most extreme conditions, maybe one day a year. I've driven through white-out blizzards on several occasions which is possible... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1133108 The fun part is that places where you can expect heavy snow generally don't give a shit because they're prepared to handle it. Countries like UK on the other hand enter "SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING" panic mode the moment they spot a snowflake.
In Venice check out San Zaccaria church's flooded catacombs, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Zaccaria,_Venice it's only a stones throw away from St Mark's square and it is beautifully atmospheric and lovely and cooling on a hot summer's day. Also Florian's in St Marks Square is THE PLACE to have afternoon tea (do it inside and you'll see the wonderful artwork too) have a pot of their blossoming tea if you can afford it my wife and I went there for our first wedding anniversary and I surprised her with that. The big bell tower in St Marks square... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A friend and I are planning to go to southern France this summer and we are going to go do some hiking in Gorges du Verdon - any one here have experiences in the area? Do you by any chance have recommendations on where to start/end, we are flying to Nice. The aim is to do a 4-5 day hike.
>>1133073 I never hiked there so I can't give you advice, but it's pretty crowded in summer. I actually don't know if you can just go hiking into the wild there, French national parks tends to be restrictive.
I have no idea how public transport works in the US, but apparently there's a bus from DC to New York that I can take. Supposing I've landed at Dulles and it's like 4:30pm, does anyone know exactly how I can get from there to central park before 2am? Money's not a huge issue but I'd prefer to keep it under $50 pls help, I'm super retarded
