Activity suggestions for a group of 3 travelling to Kyoto and Osaka? Activities within train distance of those areas are also acceptable. Already planning to go to Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine, Phiolsopher's walk, Nishiki food market, Kibune shrine + kawadoko dining, possibly Arashiyama. Haven't planned much for Osaka yet. Also, how is docomo hotspot coverage in Japan? They have a 3 week plan for a very cheap price for foreigners.

Is travel as hedonistic a hobby as shopping or eating at expensive restaurants?

What exactly are we spending our time and money on when we travel?

depends on how and why you travel

>only visiting all-inclusives, never leaving the resort, and only interaction with a local is giving them your drink order
yes
>traveling to enrich your cultural experience, increase your historical perspective, and challenge yourself physically and mentally
no

You know, some people WORK for a living and in thier 3 weeks off a year they would rather be treated like a king than "challenged physically and mentally." I would hardly call that crowd hobbyists either, they typically hit up the same places every year.

I want to do this all without any airplane flight, just bus, train, hitchhiking.

Does anybody know what SIM cards are the easiest to obtain in China?

I have to spend a while there for work in a couple months, and I'm going to buy a used unlocked GSM iPhone before I go. I'm planning on buying a prepaid SIM card and using one of their networks (probably China Unicom) while I'm there so I don't have to pay outrageous international rates. But I'm not sure what kind of iPhone to buy, 4s/5s/6s etc. The last thing I want is to get there, discover that all the stores are selling nano SIM cards and my iPhone takes a micro or whatever,...

they're all the same. english is nonexistent, so bring a phone with some sort of translation ability. they all have the tools to cut it for you if it's not ther ight size.

I freaked out when I went too. but it's really not that bad. they kind of already know what you want.

if you're really afraid, they'll ALWAYS have this available at the airport in english if it's before closing hours (maybe around 10) for a slight mark up.

Bless you, anonymous person, for posting such a quick & reassuring reply. I'll probably get a 5s, since my understanding is that the iPhone 4 etc is starting to not play nicely with the new versions of iOS and that's a headache I don't want to deal with, especially if it happens abroad.

Make sure to visit a strip club.

That highway that runs though Dallas has more strip clubs along the exits than I've ever seen anywhere else. Stripping must be Texas's main source of income. After washing off people's windshield's at street intersections with newspaper.

No, I am not that guy who asked vodka. As for stripclubs, I have a lot ones in Moscow with much more pretty girls than in Texas. Texas girls actually are ugly

Hey travel,
I would really like to travel the carribean this winter. A few questions:
For one are these places cheap? I'm looking to backpack through here so no tourist resort shit.
I'm a usa citizen, will I need visas for each island or what?
Lastly I've heard that you can sail there from the canary islands in spain. Has anyone heard of this?
Does anyone have any experiences in the carribean to share?
Thanks

It depends on the country. For instance the currency in the Grand Cayman Islands is worth more than the US dollar. The currency in the Dominican Republic is far less. In general, US dollar is worth more, though. I know Visas aren't necessary via cruise ships, but I don't know about flying.

I don't think you understand how money works.
>>
>>1128643
Grand Cayman is more expensive than the USA. Not by much. One Grand Cayman dollar is worth like 1.20/1.25 US or something. Most Carribean currency the US dollar is worth more, how much more varies widely, and also you have to deal with being overcharged for being a tourist, unless you know how to haggle or have a local guide. In tourist areas you can end up paying more than home, even though the US dollar is worth more.

I have travelled in the past when I was younger (20 I am 25 now) but have not travelled since I did a big solo trip to indonesia when I was 20. For whatever reason I developed anxiety when I flew and became anxious being far away from my flat and it has really put me off. I since havent been out of the country and only done small 1.5 hour max flights. To make things worse I live in New Zealand so any where I want to go there is no option of just driving back or something and...

The what ifs scare me too, so I just started doing short trips that last a week, and am going to SEA in September, along with seeing a doctor about anxiety. Just worried once I get somewhere completely different I'll panic and won't be able to navigate.

Depending on where you go, you may be able to take some medication. I'm 23 and pretty jealous of people who traveled at 18-22 so keep your head up.

Still do.

Obviously it can't really apply to you since you're from NZ but now I do road trips almost exclusively and I love it. Living in North America does help.

How do you guys handle being sick while traveling? I'm 3 days into a 2 month trip and I've caught a pretty nasty cold. So I'm currently laying on my bed at an estonian hostel being miserable?

I feel like shit, I don't want to lay around all day but I want to get over this thing ASAP. Going to venture out to a supermarket and a pharmacy in a bit to pick some stuff up? What "on the shelf meds" can you get in Europe for colds? Can you get psuedophedrine here? Please help, or share or own stories of traveling while sick.

Who cares.

Europe isn't a single country, so the availability & brand names vary. Plenty of OTC stuff though.

Go to pharmacy, try English. If it doesn't work just make a coughing gesture at the people and they'll give you stuff.

I haven't gotten sick. Make sure to eat properly, dress accordingly and you'll be fine.
