I'm thinking of visiting Serbia and Bosnia for a few weeks in February.
Staying at hostels mainly.
Will I enjoy myself despite the cold, shorter days of February?
Any advice or recommendations for a backpacking in those parts?

Just come in spring. Trust me. April-October is the best time to visit Balkans.

Did a few days in both these countries while on a larger tour from Budapest to Dubrovnik. Did a single night in Belgrade, the citadel and Zemun are nice places to visit there and Sundays in the city are free public transport because apparently conductors don't work on Sundays. A few people recommended visiting a restaurant that for some reason I remember being called either "?" or "!" it was nice traditional food but your standard tourist trap, i'm sure nicer places are around.

I then went onto Sarajevo. The nightlife here is cool. Spent...

Bosnians always drank alcohol. When the Ottomans came, that practice stayed. To a lesser extent Turks also drink but pretty much every Bosnian does. We have our own beers and national drinks

Also Yellowstone, which was probably obvious. One thing about being there in the middle of winter -- seeing Old Faithful erupt without a soul in sigh was unique.

If you are a geyser buff, spend some time in sight of Beehive -- it is harder to predict when it will erupt, but the show is, I think, better than Old Faithful.

all rental cars are pretty miserable. That having been said I have had relatively smooth transactions with Budget, Enterprise, and euro newcomer Sixt (BMW upgrade was a nice perk) .

Stay Away from Alamo, Dollar, 2nd and third tier crap
>>
>>1056983

I was checking Sixt for an upcoming visit to the states, it looked pretty nice. Prices were not enormous and they offered most things inclusive I believe.

Whatever we chose, I understand we should get the pre-filled fuel tank, otherwise you'll have to pay for every gallon missing when you turn it in?
>>
I've always done Budget and despite the name they haven't been bad.

Be wary though, because no matter what the company is they WILL try to scam you. If you go for the cheapest option, there will inevitably be an issue like they're waiting on the car to show up but you can upgrade right now for only $25 a day.

I'm going to be spending about a month in Spain next summer with my family. I want to make a trip to Morocco for a weekend or so. I mostly want to see Fez, and I'm not interested in sports or shit like that. Mostly into food and culture/historical tourism.

Traditional /trv/ Japan Copy-Pasta:

In the Tokyo area:
Akihabara, of course, is the electronic district in Tokyo. You can spend all day just walking around there and looking.
The Meiji-jingu temple near Harajuku is a really nice temple and Harajuku itself is an interesting place to walk around (especially on "cosplay" Sunday)
Ueno has a nice park and zoo and also a lot of museums.
You can visit the Emporer's palace a few blocks from the Tokyo station, but they wont let you in the gates except 2 days a year, in December and January....

Your order is wrong and this IS NOT the time of the year to make this trip.

You can also skip Reno unless you want to ski, and even then you can go to Mammoth instead. All your gambling and whoring needs are better served by Vegas. And I say that as someone who lives less than a mile from the Reno arch.

I'm planning a trip in March from Vegas. Is it better to fly to Bellingham, WA rent a car and drive to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Or just fly directly into Vancouver and rent a car there?
11 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>1058015
The only difference is the cost of the flight. It will usually be much cheaper to fly to Bellingham. You can rent a car in both cities no problem and drive over the border. Bellingham is about an hour away.
>>
>>1058015
Just be yourself OP
>>
flights to canada are traditionally expensive, customs fees and airport fees in canada do not help. rental cars aren't even that cheap, there are even surcharges for the fact that your cars have air conditioning (government charges car buyers like car rental companies and all the car rental companies pass on a charge to the renter to offset it).

i'd personally fly but flying six hours from NY to washington vs. six hours direct to vancouver would be my preference.
