I use a d7100 and want to get into shooting more on my upcoming trips. Looking at buying an action camera now but don't want to spend a huge amount on a gopro.

Do you have any suggestions for cheap camera sliders? I would prefer something similar to sliderplus but that price is very steep. I'm hoping to buy something for around $100.

How bout you use your fucking eyes on a trip and not film the whole thing with a so called action cam. Eh?

I am considering going to London to live there for a year or more when I graduate, my parents are british.

I was planning on applying for Goldsmiths but I've come to realize it's solely for the campus life and I really don't want to spend a 9000p tuition to be permit accomodation. How can I find a scene like campus with younger people who aren't dull and boring?

Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston area (and slightly cheaper places beyond it , Hackney, Hackney Wick, Fish Island, ) are the really young and creative neighbourhoods now. Nothing is cheap in Look London, though.

I am an American who has lived in HKI for three years. Definitely take a sauna. Do go drinking in Kallio, but don't expect locals to approach you (unless attractive + female). Finns are friendly when approached, but are shy at first. Make some friends and drink some beer. Sorry you have to be there in January :(

Guys, russian here, i'm asking would it be interesting for you as foreigners now to visit some rare places in Russia with guides in company of me and my friend? We could help with translating, visas, defense, weed and guidance. Our rouble is fallen so everything is very cheap for europeans and americans. It would be enough of 500-600 dollars for example to have nice trip without jet ticket price for 2 weeks. How do you rate this idea? Would you try this?

So I staying in Brisbane for another week and a half, visiting my brother. So far the city really isn't doing it for me, so I was wondering if you guys could suggest some things to do while I here. So far I've mostly been to museums and different micro breweries, but I can't stay drunk all the time. Beaches doesn't interest me at all. I have a car I can use so going places wont be a problem.

Nice suggestions. I mean, it's a pleasant city, just not very exciting. The cleanliness, no gypsies, brown people that actually behave like normal people, it's all great, but I like my cities old, and cold. Are there any nice punk venues or jazz bars fairly close to southbank?

hey mate, went there a couple of weeks back with the gf but only for a few days, old town square is the central tourist location and the best thing there is the church of st nicolas which will take your breath away. just before sunset we headed to park letna and watched the sun go down from that vantage point - you can see across the whole city and watch as the charles bridge lights come on - it was for me a unique and beautiful moment and that scene is seared on my brain.

Ummm that's the west coast bro, Why bother going back to the west coast if you've already been there like you said, of course unless you really like it. I would explore the Northeast like Boston, Philly, and D.C

So how long did you spend in places like SF and SD? You could take a train from SF to Portland and take the Cascades route from Portland and Seattle if you really want to see Seattle. Seattle is a decent place to live but I don't know if you could spend a few days there as tourist though without getting bored occasionally.

Sacrifice a goat every day to please weather and sun gods.
In the middle of the winter it is mostly overcast, and when it is not, sun needs to be extra active (which is pure luck)

Two years ago i spent 10 nights looking at the sky in iceland, willing to drive to any place where the sky was clear - no luck.
>>
what >>1060557 said, sacrifice animals for some good weather both to see aurora borealis AND to be able to travel around a bit

since 4 days is not that much, I'd recommend renting a car to see the waterfalls in the south, going to Dyrholaey and Vík, maybe getting to Snaefellsness Peninsula too, which is pretty and close to Reykjavik

i'm going to iceland too next year, around the same time. any recommendation on local tour?

Hey f.a.m.

I'm planning a trip for June, July and August. I'd like to go to another country (any primary language fine) on a low budget. I'd like to stay in hostels/campgrounds for the duration of my trip and basically just walk around and talk to people. I am an attractive 20 y/o female. Where can I go where I probably won't be a kidnapping/rape target? I take it all of Africa and the Middle East are out, as well as almost all of South America. I'm most interested in seeing South America- what parts are safe? I will be alone.

I'm 18 years old, white, male, pretty buff and want to go to NZ for ~6 months as a working holiday. This summer Ive been backpacking threw southern europe (spain and france mostly) as warming up, so im not a total newb.

Im planning to get there at the beginning of february when summer holidays are over and the students go back to university. Should be kinda easy to land some jobs then. Is this true?

Is NZ safe enough to me to lets say be homeless for a night or two,...

Hi /trv/,
I'm thinking of heading to Kyrgyzstan solo in the next year and I was wondering if it's a good place for first time solo travel? I've mainly travelled around Europe and NA with people so travelling solo is completely new to me. I'm 19 and Irish.
I'm thinking of travelling to Bishkek to meet a friend that lives there and then getting the train to Issyk-Kul to spend a few days around that area.
Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance.

It is not a traveler-friendly country.
HUGE language barrier, not very safe, you will have nightmares about public bathrooms for years...
Also, nothing very special about their culture.

Learn Russian. A lot of Russian.
Get ready to bribe police.
Be prepared for a destination that may not expect tourism or travelers at all.

That is your general guide to Eastern Europe/Central Asia.

I have a couple of questions. First off, I'm traveling to Japan in June/July to do an extensive trip. I will be there no less then 30 days, but am hoping my funding will stretch me to the end of passport allowances which is I think 3 months. I will be stopping at many places along the way to try out food, culture, and hopefully experience something life changing.

I need to know how those with experience are able to travel with food and water without an vehicle?

I may need to camp out at some points and may need pitch a tent somewhere. Do you know the laws about doing this in areas in between cities/villages?

Do you know how much the cost of a hotel costs after tax and such? For example, in the US, we go hur dur this is $X for 2 nights. But then when you make a final pay they go, "Hah, just kidding, you still have taxes, hotel fees, local fees, etc. bringing your total to $X+Y." I need to know exactly how much I am spending before hand to make sure I have that money available.

Should I buy a bike while I'm there, or should I buy a bike in the US and ship it via the plane ride?

Have you ever had a portable solar panel to charge electricity or possibly operate equipment? If so, what have you used and how good was it? I was hoping to use it to charge camera batteries, laptop batteries, and possibly cook food.

Where can I find water proof clothing? All the local stores near me don't have anything that I could literally sit in the middle of a rain storm in. Because I plan on doing photography in nature, and it will be in June, I need something that will keep me 100% dry and warm. Recommendations?

I had a few more questions but forgot them. I'll ask as I remember.

Can't answer all your questions but I'll answer some. Don't take my opinion as gospel I'm sure other anons will disagree and your own research should be done anyway.

>I need to know how those with experience are able to travel with food and water without an vehicle?
I hike/camp quite a bit and everything goes on your back in a rucksack. Water is heavy - 1Kg per Litre . You need 2-3L's per day + more for cooking so this is going to add significant weight to your pack. Food can be as light or as heavy as you want...

>Should I buy a bike while I'm there, or should I buy a bike in the US and ship it via the plane ride?
Buy it in country, I would imagine.

>Have you ever had a portable solar panel to charge electricity
I really wouldn't bother with them. The one's that are small enough to be portable are next to useless. They require a clear bright sunny day to get a trickle of electricty. You'd be better off with a high capacity external battery pack (the type anker make) and recharcing that from mains at every opportunity you get.

>Where can I find water proof clothing? I need something that will keep me 100% dry and warm.
There's no such thing really. You'll still get damp from sweat and condensation anyway even with top quality waterproofs. The best thing you can do with clothing is to use a layering system. Thermal base layer to wick away the sweat from the body. A mid layer that offers insulation and keeps you warm (by trapping air) and then an outer waterproof and windproof layer that's breathable. In torrential rain, you're going to struggle to stay dry completely. The most important thing is a quick way to dry your clothes that are wet and a dry change of clothes you can put on. Look into dry bags to keep a spare set of clothes in.

You might also consider a poncho if you don't want to go the waterproof jacket/trousers route. And GAITERS! These are a godsend in keeping your socks dry through tall wet grass. You'll also want a decent pair of walking boots that are comfortable and BROKEN IN BEFORE YOU GO.
>>
>>1060292
>Are you sure you'll be capable of those weights for extended periods of time?
I'm planning on getting one of those bike trailers, too. I just forgot to mention that.

Thanks for all the other info. I'll make sure to do a camping trip/hike in my new gear to break it all in.
