>>1137259 What are you into? culture, hiking, climbing nightlife, wildlife, food, ayahuasca? Hablas espanol? East side of the Andes is most beautiful IMO, highland jungle, not as hot as lowland jungle, full of interesting landscape, lots of water, loaded with wildlife. Tarapoto, Chachapoyas (visit Kuelap!), Oxapampa...
In the lowland jungle, you gotta move by boat or fly in. You mainly move on streams. There are people offering tours in bigger cities (Iquitos, Pucallpa) but you can also just book a riverboat to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1137323 Don´t go to Trujillo, except for the archaeological places is shit. Iquitos or Arequipa are a much better option in my opinion. Cuzco and machu picchu are definitely must see places. Trekking in Ausangate, Huayhuash, or huascaran are fine options if you are into that.
honeymoon in december, we scored cheap tickets $300 from ny to paris and $450 from amsterdam to LA. Now the question is we have two weeks, what are some ideal routes around europe via rail and air? We are thinking paris-zurich-venice-prauge-amsterdam via rail and plane. Is it wise to try and get most bang for buck or just focus on a specific area?
Can anyone advise me on the state of route 206 in Slovenia? The google street images are 3 years old, so I am not sure if the road surface have been fixed since then or not. I am planning my motorbike route to Croatia and that route looks very promising on map, but in street view the road surface looks like shit. If I had adventure bike I would not care, but I have a sport-tourer.
>>1137169 That's Vrsic Pass, right? I last drove it 4 years ago and it's an absolutely epic drive. Make a lot of stops for views and what not. Lake Jasna with the Zlatorog statue, the old wooden chapel, countless viewpoints, stops along the Soca river, the view of Mount Triglav when you get on top. There's also a short hike to be made to the spring of the Soca. Definitely worth it!
All I know is back then it was great and I there were a lot of cyclists and motorcyclists at the time. I can't imagine... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is the idea of wandering as a tourist in the former Soviet Union a good idea? I am really interested in Central Asia and russian far east. Anything good to see? How's the people? Should I try learning an entry level russian beforehands?
>>1137050 South African local here. Stick to Cape Town and Johannesburg. Honestly the place isn't such a shithole unless you purposely go to dodgy places like a retard. Look at packages for day trips, ask the hotel which you're staying at what places to visit & do some research what you want to see.
So, I'm going on a 3 week roadtrip through the states starting in New York and ending in Austin Texas followed by a week in South Korea (representing Iceland in the Korean Prime Minister Cup).
My question is, if you were going to spend 5 - 7 days to travel from New York to Chicago, what would you consider interesting to explore along the way? I'm not much of a city person, so nature is something I'd prefer.
>>1136570 Why Leeds? Why Carlisle? Why Liverpool? I can't think of anything touristy to do in these locations unless you're a huge Beatles fan or something. Go to a smaller town like Keswick if you want to check out the Lake District, although much of the Lake District is difficult to access via train. Blackpool maybe worth a visit instead of Liverpool?
I can't think of much to do in Newcastle unless you're a heavy drinker looking to get pissed on a pub crawl.
Check out the Beamish museum when... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
After walking in some bad parts of sanfransisco last night and realizing I was unprepared for the city is just like to know what are some places/streets to avoid and what is some advice for a small town guy when going around the city.
What do you mean by bad? Like crime? Posting for interest because I'm planning a trip for here soon. Normally I'd say google neighborhood maps and ratings/reviews for them. Or just google what minority lives where.
I was in SF last year for a conference, and I'm from smalltown Germany.
Had a hotel right in the middle of tenderloin, and while it did not really feel nice, it also did not seem to bad.
Maybe it's just a US thing, to be afraid of everything?
The german wikivoyage just says: >Sicherheit >San Francisco ist eine sichere Stadt - mit Vorsicht und Umsicht ist jedoch ein Ausflug ins Tenderloin nach Anbruch der Dunkelheit zu genießen. SF is a safe city, but be careful when going to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been thinking of getting a job on a cruise ship. I can see the world and as long as I pick something like retail it shouldn't be too different from my regular job. I get free housing and food and free travel. Plus there's the whole matter of what goes on below decks. Is it a good idea for an 18 year old American who wants to see the world? What cruise line should I pick? Should I do transatlantics only? How much could I make? Anything I should know beforehand?
>>1135819 As a non officer, you will get precious little time off, hard hours, low pay, and not always off in ports and will be forbidden from fraternizing with passengers like officers can. Assume the majority of the crew that is equal to you are gay or extremely promiscuous, and annoyingly so. As an officer, it's a good gig if you wish to remain single for a while, because you do have the ability to save 98% of your salary into a bank account, maybe even a tax free situation. If you can stick it out for 10 years, you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1135840 OP here, what if I only have a high school diploma? Should I try to do a 8 month contract to see if I like it? Also, I don't really have any skills outside of customer service and retail so is there anywhere on the ship I could work? Is there anything you'd recommend in terms of skills I should learn to get me the best job possible with my education level or am I going to need to go to college to get anything that doesn't completely suck?
Looking to backpack around NZ this September for and undetermined amount of time and possibly work fruit picking. Anyone have recommendations for must see locations, favorite hostels, or personal experiences to share?
>>1135783 Hiking - southern alps, Hillary trail, tongariro national park. Also feel free to make your own route if there isn't a restriction board.
Fruit picking can be done at any farm desu, either look it up on google or just stop by at a farmhouse or Vinery or anything alike and ask them. Go on a drive on the east coast of South Island, wild seals, they let you pet them if you aren't a cunt. Be nice and buy them uncooked fish from a store if anything and don't be a Chinese tourist and just run up... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1135827 Thanks for the response I appreciate the tips. Ive been reading the backpacker forum and it seems like there are many jobs that farms are always seeking help with. Have you worked any?
I am primarily going for the beautiful landscapes but where do you think has the best night life? I am white so I'll remember the sunscreen and was thinking of hostels but the car thing is good to know when traveling
