Hello /trv/ I recently learned that my (now ex) girlfriend has been cheating on me. We've been living together, and I just today cancelled our apartment.
I really feel like getting away from everything for a while. I've been wanting to go to Japan for many years now, and I think the time has come. I'm thinking about 2 months at first.
Do you guys have any recommendations for a trail for me? I will be going in January, and I would like to experience the culture while there. Tokyo, Kyoto, of course, but village life would also be interesting. Maybe... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In joining the KFA you are literally joining a group representing what most of the world considers a rogue state. You're also serving as a propaganda mouthpiece and helping them morally. It would be similar to joining the rebels in Indonesia, the IRA, or to the Zapatistas or some shit. Take a tour you mong.
Just bought some flights to Tenerife for February. Never went there because its touristic reputation. Now it was the only destination that fit the timeslot+budget, and the surf is apparently real good so.
Any tips where to go and where not to go (the touristic cities I guess). Looking for surf, cool little villages, maybe to climb that volcano?
>>1058901 Wouldn't say they can 'fix' anything, but traveling alone is a decent way to figure out if you are a lost cause or not. If you have a decent time and maybe even have a conversation with a person versus curl up in fetal position and cry what ever inevitable issues arise from traveling.
>>1058901 I'd suggest booking a small tour with people your age or students if you're looking to meet people travelling and get some confidence. Experienced travelers often hate on them because they're often overpriced and fairly generic but it's hard not to get to know people on them. If you do a couple of those and don't make any friends or get to know people on them then you've probably got bigger issues.
Don't overthink it though, I've met some really reserved people abroad... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I can't resist it anymore, I have to visit this country. I would like to make a trip through all the states, starting in Maine.
I don't know yet whether I will do it alone or with friends. I know I want to see America in it's purest form, not just the touristic attractions.
Currently I'm in my last year of a journalism Master's degree so I probably could make money writing articles about it. As I'm a white belgian male I should have no problems going through the conservative areas like the deep south or midwest.

1. It will take an absolute FUCKLOAD of time to visit all 48 continental states. The United States is as big as continental Europe, and there's a lot of states that are not necessary to visit at all.
2. It will also cost quite a bit. Hostels aren't common in the US so you'd have to find an alternative place to sleep. The cheapest way to do it is probably AirBNB or couchsurfing, although I've never used either.
3. In my opinion, the best parts of the US are the national parks/nature in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Doing a roadtrip through all 50 states would be very difficult to do in 3 months if you plan to stop and enjoy some cities/national parks from more than a day. I would, and I'm sure everyone else here would recommend you do the U.S. in parts. For first time Euro travelers we recommend the Northeast because people are more educated/less xenophobic and public trans is decent (for American standards anyways, euros may find it embarrassing though).
>>1062062 >The bulk of the midwest and the deep south are completely skippable ... because there's just not anything interesting to do.
A very strange thing for a traveler to post.
Of course, what you like to do and what interests you may not be what anybody else likes to do or what interests them, but the idea that in roughly half odf the continental US there is nothing interesting is laughable.
My girlfriend recently moved to California for her job for a little while and we're doing the LDR thing for a bit. I'll be flying to visit her next week and we'll be spending New Years together. He lives in the Bay Area and I want to do some stuff with her during that time but neither of us know anything about the area or things to do. Any Norcalfags have some good places and things to do?
Evening /trv/ I come enquiring if any of you fine travellers have spent time in Madrid
Considering getting my girlfriend and I flights and hotel for a long weekend in Madrid at the start of March. Flights are £49 return from Dublin, and the hotel is working out about £189 for the 3 nights.
Whats the general consensus on Madrid? Some of the attractions look beautiful, but im conscious its not as "desirable" as say the likes of Barcelona.
To date, in the last 2yrs, we have visited, Rome, Barcelona, London, Prague. We arent interested in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1057261 >>1057143 Madrid is plenty fun, although I'm more familiar with Toledo. I spent six weeks there last summer and I can say it's definitely worth a day trip at least. Incredible history. One of the only cities in the world with an extensive blend of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish culture. The art and architecture are among the best in Spain.
I would like to talk about some interesting element of our countries: pace of life.
You know how in some small town you feel that life barely goes by but in big cities like Tokyo or New York life flies figuratively by you.
Let's make a roll call of our countries and tell us about the pace of life in your city.
>Russia generally, beyond Moscow, St. Petersburg and Vladivostok the pace is very slow. You earn very little, you spend almost all of your income and that's why you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to be traveling to Ohio for christmas on a greyhound bus tomorrow night and I'm really anxious about it. Is there anyone who can walk me through everything I need to do? Do I need to get my luggage checked somewhere first?
I already bought and printed my tickets out so I dont need to worry about that atleast.
You don't need to do anything besides pack, there is no security on buses generally, the only exception to this is buses entering the northeast and central infrastructure regions of the U.S. Ideally every bus journey would be searched, but there are so many that only the ones going to critical parts of the country like Washington and New York are searched
Hey, I'm going to visit paris soon and want to visit the catacombs. Now you have this tourist attraction but you'll only access part of the catacombs. Anyone know of any guided tours that go into other area's of the catacombs?
>>1062317 >Now you have this tourist attraction but you'll only access part of the catacombs. Anyone know of any guided tours that go into other area's of the catacombs? Heard they are illegal access, so you likely won't find it advertised (if it exists).
>>1062317 One of my mates visited some of the no-access areas but it was while he was spending a year there for uni and he did it with a group of friends he met in the uni's outdoors club - I doubt there's any easy way of doing it as a tourist.
