Can you bring those tiny gift sized liquor bottles through security in North America, or will they confiscate them? I think they're within the size limit for the little liquids if you can fit them in a plastic bag, but I'm still not sure...
Be nice to have on the plane, an not have to pay the ridiculous prices they charge for alcohol on the plane.

Best European country to study abroad for Southern American?

I'm really into outdoors and reading. I'd prefer the demographic to be reflective of the country. I want it to be a chilly climate and to have a fun night life as well.

I'm currently thinking Switzerland, Austria and I would like maybe Norway or Finland but it seems expensive.

Can you guys help me out please?

Southern American as in Southern United States. I should have thought that through more.

1. It's pretty expensive I would say you look at costs of living of 1400-2000CHF per month even if you go for a student dorm or shared flat.
(about 450 rent, 100 public transport, 200 mandatory health care insurance and 800 for food/activities)
Food prices: one of the large chains delivery serivce. Prices are the same as in the supermarket.

Hey /trv/ have any of you ever been abroad and caught up in really bad weather or a natural disaster? I'm sure most of you try to avoid it by checking the weather beforehand but sometimes you can't really be sure. So where were you while traveling and what did you endure? Post pics of the weather too if you got any.

Not abroad, but I once got stuck in an ice storm in Texas. They had freezing rain for days which ended in a 3 inch thick slab of ice covering everything. Unlike up north, Texas has no preparations for ice so you just have to wait for weather to clear it up.

We setup camp outside a Loves truck stop the first night of the storm, ''drove'' all day the next day and made it like 30 miles up the street and camped at another truck stop. These pictures are from day three when it cleared up enough for us to get moving again.

Biggest problem was our...

Not abroad by me and my family were on a road trip all the way to Las Vegas. I don't remember if it was before or after we left Tucson, but we drove straight into a huge thunderstorm in the middle of the Interstate. Just kept driving lel

I kind of wish I took a picture of it, though.

The weed shops are mostly interchangeable. The prices are pretty much set by law (give or take) but many are unprofessional in that they can't keep the edibles in stock or have obnoxious people with dreadlocks behind the counter. There will eventually be consolidation as will all industries. Also expect to get ripped of on accessories since they are mostly for tourists.

Wild game sausage is sort of thing in Denver too. Biker Jim's is by the baseball field and have all sort of weird stuff like rattle snake. There are other places too.

There's a lot...

Hotels, especially the budget non-downtown ones run as franchises (possibly by Indians) LOVE LOVE LOVE to pound you in the ass with the "cleaning fee" for smoking (weed) in a non-smoking room.

I saw a Jesse Pinkman type at checkout distraught over a $300 charge. I suppose that you might be able to dispute those extra frees via with your credit card provider but I think the hoteliers rely on fast talk, shock and the fact you might have smoked the last of your weed right before your airport taxi to extract money before opening a window for 10-20 minutes and washing...

I've been tasked with driving to New York and picking up my brother to bring back to PA for Christmas.
I have no problem doing this I'm just flat broke and won't be able to pay that ridiculous toll going into NYC.
Is there a way to dodge the tolls into the city? Or am I forced to pay 14 dollars to cross an imaginary line

Bridge and Tunnel maintenance doesn't pay for itself, you know. You could ask your taskmaster to pay. You could ask your brother to take the PATH into New Jersey. You could swing north to the Tappan Zee bridge, a $5 toll, and picking the right bridges within NYC you can avoid further tolls. The Bear Mountain bridge is even cheaper, but you need to balance tolls with the cost of gasoline.

There are multiple bridges that don't have a toll, maybe the reason you are broke is because you lack the resourcefulness that a less broke person would have used to become unbroke.

There's a bus that goes right to Grand Central Terminal, he can get on a train and meet you outside the city. What kind of a prima donna asks to be picked up in New York City in a fucking car?

So guys, I just finished biking from Nova Scotia to Vancouver in Canada and while on the road my drivers license and health card expired. I called the airline and they said it won't be possible to fly back home to ns with expired id. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this issue? Will they usually even check if it's expired? Tldr can I board a domestic flight with nothing but a expired dl and health card?

Im going to Berlin in a few weeks with my immediate family and need your advice.

I have small gifts for them this christmas, but would like to treat them all to a dinner and/or a show whilst we are there.

Can anyone recommend something? Struggling on short notice, something a bit nicer than the holocaust museum...

I'm 24, just graduated college and returned home. Back in August I got job offer overseas, not a dream job, but just a way to travel. I'm scheduled to start in January and planned on travelling abroad for the next two years or so.

Now I'm getting cold feet. I went to a movie with my mother the other night and started talking to this guy while in line. He was about my age and by himself, so I ended up sitting with him at the theater. We got along pretty well and had similar interests.

Afterwards my mother called me out for not properly introducing...

I don't know shit about credit cards other than I have a basic discover card for cash back and building "credit". I want to rack up miles or whatever I can passively do to make every penny count. I treat my card like a debit card so I never miss a payment and never pay interest. What do yall use?

If you're going to get a credit card for travel rewards, make sure you get one that offers a good bonus for spending a certain amount of money in the first few months, and that you can spend that much.

Also make sure it offers no foreign transaction fees and no annual fee, unless your spending is high enough to warrant a card with an annual fee.

You might be better off simply using a card that gives you cash back and using that money for travel, but it depends on your spending habits.

Hrm, well, say a Delta SkyMiles or gold/platinum gets you free checked bags, that's worth quite a bit more at $150 a pop than a free upgrade worth only $50-75. Combine it with free travel insurance when you use it to book, waivers on CDW, added insurance or lengthed warranties when purchasing electronics, or checking bags that might get loss, and really the perks are wayyy more valuable than any kind of free travel you think you'll get.

There's been a pretty good lockdown on free flights from...

Well:

- The Smithsonians are free
- Adams Morgan is cool for food
- Vintage consignment stores

everything is really expensive. There is a little pop up Christmas market right near the Spy Museum though, mostly shitty native american jewelry and overpriced leather goods, but cool to check out nonetheless.

I keep thinking japan or Canada but i don't think either are what i want, i was thinking of Germany but idk, would like a recommendation for a location to do some solo sightseeing or some kind of soul-searching, possibly even some kind of prostitute hunt. I really don't know but I have to give myself something to look forward to

Try Berlin or Amsterdam. The nighlife is supposed to be amazing in both of these places and they both have good cultural heritage so you shouldn't be short on things to do.

Is this trip possible? My plan would be to fly in, buy a car (one I can sleep in) in Portugal, and then sell it in Russia. I'm mostly curious if I could pull off buying in Portugal and selling in Russia at a reasonable rate of return.

The whole trip would be 3-4 weeks from A to B

The trip itself is easily doable up to the belarussian border. Belarus is very restrictive with visa but i suppose it's possible to get one, same thing in russia though less extreme. i doubt that you will be able to sell the car in russia and if you intend to leave it there you will have to get a lot of permits etc., work through tons of paperwork, possibly corruption and bribes to be able to import it to the country.

I would go through Latvia and Estonia I think because I wouldn't need a visa for either. Is there a particular country closer to my destination I could sell it in? I was thinking I could sell it in Poland and then just take a train after that, but then again, couldn't I just sell it off for cheap in Russia too?
