me and a friend are going to Iceland for a week and a half in the middle of December to try and give ourselves the best chance of seeing the aurora. I know we won't be able to do too much other sightseeing because of how short the days are, but is it really that bad? like, do we need to bring a portable floodlight or something to navigate our way around town?
>>1047560 I don't think the day length is your biggest obstacle to "doing something" but rather the weather, and the fact the winter things to do are centered in the city. A city with only 2 days to see describes Reykjavik well. Its a 1 day city, desu. With all the tourists at home, and the rest of the country hunkered down for winter at their city home, activities center around the opera, a music festival, working out at the gym, dining, soaking, working at the office, or maybe shopping. There are 2-3 museums... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
im hoping to move to washington (state) at the end of this year. im looking particularly for urban areas, dont have to be huge though. id consider more of a smaller town if it was really unique and cute and artsy and naturey. so, basically im looking for just unique, interesting, creative cities/towns, with beautiful nature around. i definitely DEFINITELY dont want anything suburbian and cookie cutter. yuck. i want a place with a great personality that will match mine. i really want seattle, but of course im broke af and cant afford it. here are some other places i want to research,...

>>1046947 Depends on from where to where you want to go. surprisingly, for my last few inner-european flights, lufthansa was always the cheapest option. The infomaous ryanair does indeed offer some really, really cheap tickets, but if you got to spend 100€ and half a day to actually get to your shitty airport in bumfuck nowhere to start, and the same to get from your destination airport to your real destination, their ticked aint so cheap anymore.

Are there any work/volunteer programs abroad that don't suck ass or cost $5000? I want to travel and actually /do/ something, whether it's wildlife conservation or being an au pair, but everything I've looked for is always hyper expensive or "work teaching children for 16 weeks with no pay in sierra leone".
Has /trv/ ever found a good place to find overseas work that doesn't require an advanced degree or thousands of dollars?
>>1045687 >Are there any work/volunteer programs abroad that don't suck ass or cost $5000? There a bunch of them, but most expect you to have specific useful experience or skills. Three of the best, in increasing order of difficulty to get into: 1. Volunteers in Asia--I believe you have to pay for these, but the org and the postings are legit. Have both student/young-and-useless and professional programs. viaprograms.org. 2. VSO -- Voluntary Service Overseas. UK-based, but global.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1044932 Presuming your from the United States' it is very unlikely that that will work out. Wait until you earn your degree first then work domestically for a few years. That will easily make you eligible for an EU Visa and you will be able to enter a stable job market in a country of your choice (though you may have to learn a language).
Sup /trv/ me and a friend are planning on going to South-Korea.
What are the best cities for sightseeing and night-life, the best peroid to go in terms of weather, the best way of transportation, should we do it by train or just rent a car and i terms of places to sleep, got any recommendation for hostels/ hotels/ w/e ?
Gibe tips, share stories/experiences. Thanks in advance.
Depends on what you like, really. It's capitalist paradise, also the number of restaurants per capita is quite high, so prepare your stomach and wallet. Mostly your stomach, be ready to eat non-stop. There's accommodation from guesthouses with ondol, templestays, hostels, hotels, airbnb, couchsurfing, whatever you like. Oh, and love motels are actually a pretty good value for the price, just ignore the condoms and stuff.
March-April is supposed to be the nicest, but I really enjoyed the winter time I've spent there, too. Just avoid summer.
Seoul... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1044107 We were planning on moving from south to north so Busan to Seoul and we are going for 2 weeks so i think we'll have plenty of time to do lots of stuffs. From what i've gathered so far in both Busan and Seoul are ok if you only speak english but the people dont seem to be keen on spontaneous conversation and the way i feel about travel is the people you meet and the conversations you have with them are what makes the journey a success. So how do you deal with it ? Do you just keep trying until you find some... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1044111 They don't? I don't know, it might be just me, but I had people come up and talk to me everywhere (outside of Seoul). Their English wouldn't be great, but then again, mine is also far from perfect, so I just kept on talking even when we didn't get each other. Conversations started 2 ways mostly: Where are you from?
God, you really don't know how to eat that dish, do you. Let me help you. How do you like it? Which Korean dish is your favorite so far?

Last year, after I went to the Russian and Georgian Caucasus, I made a travel report thread on here, as some people had expressed interest in it before I left. As it was, /trv/ did like the thread - some of you may even remember it. And, truth be told, the travel report threads here are personal favourites of mine as well. Or, TL;DR travel report! I went back to the Georgian Caucasus, and made my first trip to Romania right before it.
First things first, Romania. Went with three friends, to hike and attend a festival. A festival we had gotten to know... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1037496 Anyway, we arrived in Bucharest and found it to be quite hot, the temparature being well over 30°C. Only took one pic to be honest, as we were mostly busy figuring out public transport, buying food and finding an outdoor store to buy gas or fuel (which we ended up finding in a small store called Montrek). For those interested, bus 780 and 783 will get you from the airport to the city centre, to Piaţa Unirii and Gara de Nord respectively. The first one is where you'll want to be to buy whatever it is you fancy, as well as eat and drink, the second one is the main train station. If I recall correctly, bus 138 connects the two. So after we had all the shopping, eating and drinking done, we headed for Gara de Nord and got train tickets for the overnight train to Sibiu. I was, however, told there's no sleeping carriages on the train. Crap, and immediate regrets as we entered the train. While it was clean (and cheap) enough, and the seats weren't uncomfortable to sit in, the train was very noisy, extremely hot, and the seats weren't exactly suitable to sleep - over 7 hours of discomfort it was.
That said, the train did arrive in Sibiu on the exact fucking minute it was supposed to arrive there, at 7:22 am. Somehow, I managed to sleep quite well - as the only one of our group. We had a few hours to kill in Sibiu as our train to Ucea de Jos and Victoria, our entry point into the mountains, wouldn't depart before 11 something am.
>>1037501 Sibiu - also known as Hermannstadt in German - is one of the so-called Siebenbürgen, cities founded by Saxon Germans during the middle ages. The city centre consist almost entirely of Renaissance style buildings painted in pastel colours and, as a result, is a quite enjoyable place to stroll around. Would recommend, and what I've seen of the other Siebenbürgen, Sighișoara and Brașov, makes me thing all of them are worth a visit if you enjoy historical towns.
Amusingly, we encountered a (former) celebrity... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Anyway, after a hearty breakfast and playing the tourist for a while, we headed back to the train station and took the train to Ucea de Jos, from where there is a minibus to Victoria. The two connect fairly well, so we were told by local Daniel. As far as people and language goes, by the way, Romanians tend to be a rather friendly lot on the whole, and the younger generations usually speaks English fairly well. That said, I must say the...

Lets talk about islands. I guess 'red pill me' is the phrase I want to use.
If you look up so-called 'island paradises', all you see are perfect paradise images which obviously are not representative of the real places. Like I often hear Bali is overpopulated but you only find praise and pictures like this on google.
What 'island paradises' across the pacific and indian oceans are actually as-advertised, and which are overrun or overrated? Is it necessary to pay out the ass for these tiki hut resort things to find these nice parts?

I lived on Oahu for three years and the North Shore is as advertised bruh. Every page has two sides, that is certain, but the side we are shown is definitely not inaccurate. It actually looks like that. e.g. Waikiki beach is a shitty fat fuck homeless fest but the beaches everywhere else are 100% glorious
So most of the threads here are about hostels, but what about /comfy/ hotels?
Maybe it's just me being British and being used to being totally ripped off, but holy fuck. Some countries have some incredible deals on hotels.
For example, I'm going to Brazil next week. Rio, the Green Coast, Iguazu falls. Every hotel I'm staying at is basically 5 star luxury. Rooftop pools. Spa. Gym. Multiple internal restaurants/bars. One of them has 6 different outdoor pools.... and the cost for all of this? For 2 weeks? £700 (about $1000). For the same standard in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was traveling a bunch earlier this year. I tried to stick to $50-100 a night, and mainly did that. I stayed in one hostel and while it was OK, it helped remind me why I prefer a /comfy/ hotel. Mainly cuz I have a hard time sleeping, and I like sticking to a kinda boring schedule.
Anyway, it seemed like my money went furthest in Bangkok and Italy. I stayed at this really nice place in Bologna with good breakfast, heated floors in the bathroom and shit for maybe $60/nt. A place in Rome with coffee brought to my room fro around the same. The BKK place was enormous and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've started university this October, but I'm completely unmotivated to continue. I'm not certain if I want to study what I'm studying and I have constant thoughts of just going abroad (currently thinking about the UK) and living there and working for some time and then traveling for a bit with the money I saved up. I've worked in Scotland this year for a month in a restaurant just for the summer and met a lot of young people my age in their 20's who aren't in university and are sort of in the same position in life as me, not really sure what...

>>1047879 hey man, here's my advice to you, don't drop out of school, that's pretty dumb. stay in school get a good paying job and use that to travel to your hearts content instead of having to scrape pennies at a minimum wage job just to make traveling feasible.
you can actually make a lot of money travelling, and ive had a blast doing it.
