Hey /trv/ I just applied to do a language assistanchy in spain next year, I put andalucia as my first choice, aragon as my second and navarre as the third. I'm only now realising that I should've asked here first, what do you guys think of my choices? any one who has done this sort of thing before have any tips? just general questions i suppose?
Camera thread. /p/ is for superficial douches and discourages questions. I am a cinematographer who likes to do photography from time to time. I want to know what you use and see what you've shot. I know a bit, ask questions and I'll answer.
I use a GH2 with a variety of Rokinon primes. Moving to a GH4. Looking at a D810.
Hey /trv/ was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for good traveling shoes for winter time in Europe. Ill be traveling from Sweden to Spain for a month so need something comfortable, warm and water resistant. Any suggestions?
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?
>>1060605 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'd steer well clear of Goldsmiths. To say the student politics there are deranged and insane would be an enormous understatement.
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.
>>1061285 You could check out the glasshouse mountains to the north, theyre cool. There are a few different bushwalks and stuff to do if that interests you. What do you like? Eat street in Hamilton is popular with tourists, its like a event for street vendors selling different foods.. There's also fishing charters out of Manly, costs a bit but they take you outside the bay and you're guaranteed to catch some sweet fish. Be more specific about what kinds of activities you're after. It's a regional capital,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1061323 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?
You can get opera (also ballet, other theatre tickets online ) from the national theatre website, and I recommend doing so (you get them emailed to you right away as a PDF). Website is something like www.narodni-divadlo.cz
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.
the architechure around the city (even seemingly ordinary buildings) is really stunning, and just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I just took a plane to NY,NY and subsequently boarded a train to new haven.visiting a buddy here at Yale. I'll be bunking out for about a week here and just going to take in the locale. Will be flying to LV the 23rd and drive to San Francisco the 27th. spend new years there.. however after that I basically don't have any plans until my return flight the 23rd in NYC.
I was on the east coast last May saw small parts of LA, San Diego, San Francisco (Fresno lol) and the national parks of Yosemite and Grand canyon.
I was advice to just book... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1060564 >I was on the east coast last May saw small parts of LA, San Diego, San Francisco (Fresno lol) and the national parks of Yosemite and Grand canyon. 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
>>1060847 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.
i'm going to iceland on 30th of january for 4 days, 3 nights. what are the recommended tour to take other than the golden circle? we really want to go to see aurora and all its glory. also some unique experience of iceland
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 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.
Only found the two threads of the WH-hater regarding this topic so I just made this.
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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1060358 I would say the safest in the world. But they might call your folks to come get you for being a homeless weirdo if things go bad. And you know what? They totally have the ability to shit-can you back to where you came.
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.
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... Comment too long.

>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.
Yesterday was my last day at work, I have plenty of savings and about 6 months off to study and travel. I'm going to be spending 2-3 months traveling around South America, starting in Ecuador for carnival, and hitting bolivia at some point to visit family. Anyone have any other suggestions for where I should go? Transportation suggestions would be welcome also
