Yes. It's pretty great actually. Maybe not KSA itself, depending on your lifestyle. But the money you make, and you just go to UAE, Bahrain, or fly to Thailand for a few hundred bucks for your debauchery, the same way the Saudis do.

There is no such thing as a "Real Traveller" as travelling is a different experience for everybody and everybody gets something different out of it.

Having done package holidays, Villa rentals, city breaks and backpacking I can say that for me, nothing even comes close to the authenticity, the raw experience of backpacking, how can you really get a taste for a culture when you're surrounded by tour guides and 100+ German OAP's clad head to toe in Berghaus and North Face jackets being shows some pre-fabricated monument that features on the cover of...

I had the "real traveler" discussion with a friend. She is a rich girl, who's been a lot of places and her mindset is like thisVV

>I can say that for me, nothing even comes close to the authenticity, the raw experience of backpacking, how can you really get a taste for a culture etc etc...

Now I will certainly agree that going it independently, exploring on your own, etc are all better than packaged tours and stuff, but the idea of being a "real traveler" is still just a snooty privileged clueless person mindset....

You can get small private rooms for less than a bed in a hostel dorm, and luxurious lofts in expensive areas of the city, and anything in between. So it can be expensive, but it does not have to.

It can be particularly good if you are traveling with a group of people, as sharing the rent of a flat turns out as a pretty good deal, compared to hostels and mid-range hotels.

You can have some socialization with the hosts if they are open to it. Some of them will socialize a lot with you and show you around....

It's cheaper than a hotel, more expensive than a hostel. Can be better or worse than either one, depends on the room.

I lived in one for two weeks, it was the side room in this sweet old Israeli lady's house. It was breddy good, though I was always a little conscious of the fact that I was in someone's house, not a hotel

Hi /trv/,

I'm off to Moldova soon. Going there because it's the least visited country in Europe for touristic purposes.

Has anybody else been to this benighted nation? As far as I can tell, it looks like one can drink yourself to death on wine, drink yourself to death on brandy or try to get arrested in Transnistria. I won't be there very long.

General travel advice and tips for enjoying myself in Moldova would be gratefully received. Going with a couple of friends and we will be based in the capital, Chisinau.

Hello /trv/

I'm flying to Sweden in December to visit my girlfriend and her family for a month. I'm American and I've already gotten my passport, but there are quite a few things i'm concerned about.
The first is that we're both only 19.
The second is that I've never flown before.
The third is that I'm going to be visiting for a whole month with probably only carry-on luggage.
The fourth is that by the time i leave ill have only about $1200-$1300 and no credit cards.

What I'm mostly concerned about are some of...

You'll be fine with or without a passport. But why only a carry-on?
>>
>>1048913
I'm sorry, but what do you mean I'll be fine without a passport?

I don't really want to have too many bags to fuss around with and get past security with. My girlfriend's family has spare clothes i can borrow so i figure it'd be fine to pack some of my own clothes + other essential stuff and be fine throughout my stay. I might end up packing more though if it seems odd that ill be travelling for so long with so little.

No idea why he said that. But you have your passport, you should be all set. Euro border guards generally don't question visitors, unlike America. If they do, just tell them honestly your plans. You really should have nothing to worry about from them.

So I've bought all the transportation related items for a 3 week trip around Europe next month by train, plane and bus and paid the deposit on my hostels, but I'm worried food might get really expensive in some areas and I want to keep it within a relatively small budget plus I care more about visiting museums and local destinations than focusing on each cities cuisine and spending an hour or so each time I go out to eat. That being said they don't have Soylent yet in the UK but they have a close brother in Huel, just wanted to know if anyone has used this sort...

Other than that, what is there to do in Paris in March? Anywhere in Paris we just have to go? A certain resturant maybe? Anything

Check out Ibis, generally good quality and not too expensive. Look for somewhere in the 14th, imo, if you don't mind not being in a constant tourist trap. The 14th is more residential, and one of the safest neighborhoods, though Paris is safe pretty much everywhere as far as violent crime goes.

Definitely check out the catacombs! I feel they are under-rated, but it is really something else. Honestly, I have been here for like 3 months already, and there are new amazing things I am seeing daily. The city is so big and full of history that it's hard to see it all.

Hi everyone,

I'll have three full days in Europe (late that Sunday night to early Thursday morning) soon to travel where I please, starting in Milan and ending anywhere within a few hour's train ride of Milan. Does anyone have route suggestions?

I love to explore food, so Lyon has always been high on my list and I'm thinking that will be the center point. Maybe something like fly to Barcelona from Milan, take a train to Lyon and then a train to Nice, where I will meet back with my company from Milan?

I'm open to any thoughts at this point.

You'll spend most of your short three days in airports and in trains. It's a far better idea to just stay around Milan.
>>
>>1048475
I've been before and the last time I only had two days to explore solo. I did two separate day trips. Took a train to Rome one day and a train to Zurich the next.

It would not be hard to cover my example route of flying to Barcelona Sunday night, getting to Lyon by Tuesday/Wednesday and then meeting up with my company Thursday morning in Nice. Especially since I intend to do most of my sleeping on the plane/train.

Similar question. I'm flying into madrid and have 96 hours there. Should I split my time between madrid and barcelona, or stay in madrid.

Madrid only will be convenient but i wont get a chance to come back to europe for a while I think. Is it worth it to deal with the hassle of being tired and traveling to another city given I will only be there for 4 days?
