I'm doing some travel in the south of England in a few weeks time, are there any must-visit towns there?
So far I have Bath, Salisbury (for Stonehenge), Brighton, Devon, Torquay, Brixham and Weymouth on my list. I was interested in Cornwall too but I was told I'd be going during the off season so a lot would be closed, but I'd still be interested in checking it out. Time and budget are both flexible, bot I'm obviously not looking at five-star accommodation nor spending a long time there.
I've also been looking at train timetables, is that the best and cheapest way to get around?
>>1050950 Trains are generally your best bet, yes. Buses are an option, but they're not great in terms of timescales - they run infrequently, and they tend to be slow. Bear in mind that tickets for most travel in the UK by train are a lot more expensive before about 930am or so.
I'm going this July from Moscow to Vladivostok. When are you going Anon? I don't have first hand experience obviously, but have done most of my planning if you have any specific questions OP. For a 18 day trip across with stops I'm looking at about 3k USD including visa costs.
I'm saving up for a big trip in a few years, road trip through eastern Europe, then transsiberian to Beijing, then train through southern China. Gonna be long and costly, but I rally wanna experiment the trans siberian, and since it's a week long by itself I might as well slow-travel the whole thing.
This question is slightly /out/ ish but do you think either of these backpacks are worth buying for backpacking through europe around autumn? I know Kathmandu is looked down on by some travel types, but both these models are on sale in my country, and don't look half bad.
I'll probably be doing some light hiking, day-trip out of country town stuff, but I'll primarily be lugging these around urban areas. http://www.kathmandu.com.au/packs-and-bags/packs/overland-pack-red.html
What the fuck is wrong with you, dude? You're backpacking around fucking Europe, not going off to climb K2. Try on a couple of packs, read the reviews, and buy whatever seems durable and is comfortable.
I took my first four-month trip with my fucking school backpack and then another, longer one the next year with a 35L hiking back that I bought for $70 at Dick's Sporting Goods. Both held up fine and did exactly what I needed. Who cares if somebody is going to "look down on" your bag? They're an elitist prick.
Travel with something which works for you, regardless of if it's a cheap piece of crap or an expensive piece of crap with a helicopter built in.
>>1053261 what the fuck is wrong with your attitude, dude? The first pack I linked says it's for "experienced travellers" (whatever that specifies) and opens longways, clearly designed for being multipurpose and not a hardcore hiking thing, second one is explicitly for "urban environment".
I'm not concerned at all of people looking down on my backpack, but I was referring to a poor reputation of the quality of the packs themselves, people saying they're overpriced/break easily, shit like that. I'm not informed enough to know how valid those assumptions are, so I asked.
You come across as a horrible elitist prick on a board I like to think as one of the most civil on 4chan. Good job packing as little as possible I'm sure than impresses everyone you mention it to. I know I can travel on less and yeah, fuck those 60-70 litre behemoths people take around, but I've decided 50-55 is a size I'm comfortable taking.
At the end of the day, it's your money and your decision. Have you tried checking out the reviews online? Have you can considered alternatives and gone into a store to look at your options? There's nothing wrong with taking in a tent and a handful of clothes, stuffing into a hiking bag off the shelf, and strutting around to see whether or not it's comfortable.
The mention about backpack size was just me meme-ing. What I was trying to convey - in admittedly not a very civil or proper manner - is that the choice here is entirely yours. You already know that, but there is plenty of information available online. Backpack threads on /trv/ never seem to gain much traction or go beyond people recommending various brands which are available in some parts of the world but not others.
I personally would not spend that much money on a backpack. Unless you're planning to go far off the beaten path, you don't need something overly rugged or extremely weather resistant. You'd be just as well served by something with a similar frame and attached rain tarp.
I live in Central Jersey. What the fuck is there to do? I live in a rich white town where people only get in trouble for weed. I'm about an hour way from NYC and an hour away from Philly. What do? What do you guys do when you arrive in NJ?
>>1052653 What do I do when I arrive in New Jersey?

>>1052247 This is the worst. I stayed at a Clarion in Prague and they wanted €10 extra for WiFi, €10 for coffee/tea facilities (literally a kettle and tea bags/coffee) and had zip tied the mini bar so I couldn't use the fridge. In Prague you could spend a whole day sightseeing for less than €25.
Don't be a normie and go to kuta if you decide to go to Bali. North and east shores are pretty cool. Also Banda Aceh on the island of Sumatra is an interesting place to go. Think it's a bit hostile at the moment though.
Travelling to Japan in January next year for about 3-4 weeks. I will spend about 3 days in Tokyo with a friend and then do a week of snowboarding up in Hakuba. Suggestions on where else to travel afterward? I was thinking Sapporo because we could do some time at the snow in Hokkaido as well but really I just want to go do some interesting things. Taking lots of pictures of landmarks and doing tours is really not my thing though.
Also are bullet trains worth it to get around or should we just stick with regular trains? Anything that is interesting around Hakuba and Tokyo... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1052571 >Suggestions on where else to travel afterward? If you're thinking Hokkaido I've heard it's got the better snow/conditions for snowboarding. Hakuba is just more popular, I suppose because it's closer to Tokyo. I'm going for the first time to Hokkaido in about a week. If this thread's still up, I'll report back. >If anyone knows if snow gear is cheap there that would be great too, its really expensive in Australia and I need... Comment too long.

Thanks man I'll look forward to your report, I think it's pretty early in the season though.
As for the pants it'll probably work but I think pants are the most important part for snowboarding so I wouldn't skimp. A friend of a friend said that gear is cheap as over there so you could potentially get good pants but I dunno if sizing will be weird and I really can't vouch for that information.
Hey guys. I notice there's quite a bit of information about travelling to Japan in the sticky, but I'm after less generic information. My question is: what were your personal favorite places, things and events to see while in Japan that aren't obvious tourist attractions?
I'm going to Japan for 3 weeks very soon and am it will likely be the only time I go for a while so naturally, I'd like to get as much out of the trip as I can. I'm going with a group of what you'd call hipsters (I'm more of a weeb, that's why we're going),... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1052209 Butterfly knives are legal in Idaho and Michigan. There are no federal laws regarding knife ownership. I would imagine you would probably get much more shit about it in Edinburgh and Amsterdam than anywhere in America.
So here's the deal. I know that 4chan has plenty of good and bad guys. Witch includes also good hackers. I'm 26 years old and i'm a proud single father. I've born indo Macau in 89. But in 91 my father decided to go back to Portugal and my mother didn't. So they divorced. I still live in Portugal actually. And my mom use to sent me every christmas eve some letters sayin that she was ok, and my older sister and younger brother were fine. She even came to Portugal to visit me in 99, year where i recieve my first gameboy pocket. And she invited me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So, did you mother send you every years letter, once per year, but you didn't send her back? Every latter has one address in the back, you know, you can use that to messenger who wrote the letters to you.
É uma história triste, OP. Espero que termine tudo bem.
Hey /trv/ I am going on a big adventure solo this winter.
I have received a fellowship to learn algorithmic coding and defense contract programming in Tel Aviv.
My housing and breakfasts will be paid for. But I will need to buy dinners and snacks.
I have booked a super cheap flight ($450) to Rome with a 9 hour layover before going to Tel Aviv. I will be flying over Christmas.
I have a few questions:
Will I be able to see any of the touristy attractions in Rome in 9 hours? The airport is only 30 mins from the Colosseum etc, I will probably never... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
