So for a while now I've planned out my idea of a year long road trip across the continental US. I grew up in Mississippi/Louisiana/Alabama so skipping those the goal would be 45 states over the course of a year, spending a little more than a week in each state and visiting at least one major city and one national park or national monument in each state. The order of states I took from here: http://www.randalolson.com/2015/03/08/computing-the-optimal-road-trip-across-the-u-s/ and I've been compiling ideas on where I'd want to visit for a while now.

I've also got plans for a secondary road trip where the goal would be to travel across every Canadian province + Alaska over the course of 3 or 4 months.

Problem with the whole thing though, is it'll likely be a while before I feel comfortable financially to take such a trip. Even if I sleep in my car or couchsurf for a fair bit of it I think I would need at least $20,000 to do such a trip.

Has anyone else done something similar? Any tips on how to accomplish such a thing?

I am planning a roadtrip through the US with my best friend. We're coming from northern Europe, so I hope we're white enough not to get shot down in the south.

Rough itinerary in the picture, but we're landing in New York, and are probably spending a week between NY, Philly, Washington and surrounding sights. We're planning on using whatever public transportation is available, but might get a car if we decide to visit places like Norfolk or Gettysburg, if they are worth it.

After that

Smokey Mountains in Tennessee. Make sure you try some homemade moonshine at some hick's house in the mountains woods.

Also, Be sure to see the ocean while in Florida. It is a very short drive to either coast in Florida from Orlando.

In New York, do all of the New York shit, obviously, like ride the subway, Time Square, but also check out Liberty Island in NYC.

Take pictures with your friend at each monument in Washington D.C.

!!! Eat good ole American barbecue when you are in the south!...

My father wants to take me overseas after I graduate college. I love British history so we first thought to visit Europe. However after the muslim immigration, Paris attacks, and migrant crisis none of us think Europe is a good option. It's just not what I thought it was.

I was thinking of going to the DPRK through Koryo Tours. I want to go to a place that not many people can say they've been to

If you really want to visit Europe then do it before the Schengen breaks down. If you absolutely don't want to see muslims then look up where the worst ghettos where they are packed. In the end most of UK is free of them.

First of all, you're a /pol/ troll. But just in the small chance you aren't, but are just an idiot, then yes, you can go to DPRK with Koryo. You should do it sooner rather than later since who knows how much longer the current DPRK regime will last.

Next year I plan on doing some traveling and I wanted to start off in Mongolia since it seems that would be the hardest to manage compared to all of east asia, and therefore I would want to get it out of the way.

From what I've read, there is really no need to spend more than a day or two in the capitol.

Looks like to me the cheapest way of getting there would be flying to beijing and taking the train.

Like most others, seeing the gobi desert is probably the top reason people go there. However, I don't think I'm up to spending 10 days or...

Don't go in winter.

I just got back from there, there's not much to do outside of the capital in winter and not that much you can do inside it either.

Beijng->Ulaanbaatar is about a two day trip, easy enough I guess.

Ger tourism is totally a thing, fortunately, commercial-as-fuck things in Mongolia aren't super commercial because the place is so undeveloped.

Oh god no. The high end ger camps at the biggest tourist spots (Khustain, Orkhon Falls) are still just felt tents and you will be doing great if your hosts bothered to bring you some wood for your stove.

Not to say Mongolians are bad hosts, just the idea of commerical tourism hasn't yet caught on. You should always expect you'll need to gather you own cow shit in the morning. Mongolia is still a few decades...

We want to drive all the way down to the tip of the "boot" then ferry across the channel. But I can't find anything on it. Is it just something we can book once we get down there?

That ferry connects a well populated island with th rest of the country, and in particular two relatively big cities. I guarantee you there's no need to book in advance -- it's probably not even possible.

If you're going to Venice to meet locals, qts or not, you've chosen the wrong destination. As for the tourists, it's not exactly party city numero uno, but you might be lucky.

Personally I think Krakow is the most interesting out of those cities for a tourist.

From what my friends have told me the nightlife in Gdańsk isn't too great.

You don't have to book trains in advance you can just buy a ticket at the station. It might be slightly cheaper if you checkout Polskibus.com. There are some new express trains, but they might end up being a bit expensive.

There's a lot of (more than in Warsaw) tourists in Krakow and so the nightlife in the city center/old town is nice. For places just check out...

Auschwitz is a must-do day trip from Krakow. It's also free if you don't go with a tour guide. It's very moving and impressive. Be sure to either book through an agency (we booked through our hotel) or book in advance on their website. You simply can't get in if you just show up on the day itself.
>>
http://rozklad-pkp.pl/en here you can check the trains
you can buy a ticket online too, but if you won't manage or something you can buy one in the train (it will be just like 3$ more expensive when you;ll do it this way), you just need to inform the train conductor before or right after you get on the train
tickets are up to 40$ (half the prices if you're a student and have a valid document stating that)

I lived in Hot Springs for a few months. Hands down the most boring and depressing place I've ever lived. There's a reason most people forget Arkansas is a state. I'm not trying to be a dick, just telling you to keep expectations low. Focus on spending time with her and her family.

I've never been but I always thought that visiting Hot Springs would be cool, just because I've never been to natural hot springs before.

Minimum wage laws are not the be all end all indication of a nation's plebs' income.
Sweden has no minwage regulation and I work a basically unqualified job making 20 USD an hour, more in the evenings. I am fairly lucky, but I don't think anyone with a serious job makes under 12 USD. It's supposedly relatively costly to live here though but I doubt if those claiming that actually spend wisely.
Income tax in that bracket is probably around 25% but you can earn something like 5700 USD...

I know its a cliche thing to say but it really does feel like it was all a dream now.

Great comment on his books but as to your point on food I think it's because Rick has never been a chef by profession, he can give stunning insight into history and music because that's what he did for a living. He'll never have the insight of food a chef has though.

Has anyone had recent experience as an American in Cuba? I'm interested in visiting this summer.

I plan to go for journalistic purposes, but I wonder how strictly they expect you to adhere to that role. I've freelanced in the past but I don't depend on journalism for livelihood. I would take pictures, keep a journal, and perhaps interview locals, but I may not publish anything in the immediate aftermath, if at all. Thoughts?

Also, general advice for visiting Cuba would be appreciated.
