I don't get it.

I'm not a real traveler; conversely I prioritize going to see the big major sites around the world.

But whats so special about some generic ruins on a mountain side?

It doesn't seem nearly as interesting or grandoise as something like Angkor Wat.

Just look at this. What makes so many people want to go here?

You can see mountains everywhere, and such dilapidated ruins anywhere

Also it's not just "some ruins"

It's an entire city on the top of a mountain.

oh i could come up with a sizable list of uninteresting unesco sites

I will be visiting Peru from mid august until the end of september for a solo backpack trip. Will be my first time South America as well.

What are some good routes I should look into? Any highlights I should not miss at all?

Looking for all recommendations and suggestions!

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...

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?

Route 206 Slovenia.png
438 KB,
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.

It's a slow narrow road across a mountain pass, but the scenery is absolutely epic. You take this road for the experience, not to get somewhere fast. Your bike should be just fine.

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...

Has anyone ever traveled by cargo ship?

What was it like?

When you arrived how did you register your visa with the country you were visiting?

Probably /pol bait, but I'll bite.

Cape Town, Sea Point. Just don't go for aimless walks at night.

For excursions, go down to the Peninsula, Cape Point, Simon's Town, Scarborough. Just don't stumblie in to the township outside Kommetjie by mistake, if the natives are rioting.

Then for another excursion, go for the vineyards. Either stay at them, or stay in Stellenbosch or Franschhoek.

With this itinerary, you'll be as safe as in any other city of the same size.

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.

Plan: Drive down from NYC to Annapolis and Washington DC the first day. Second day drive through Shenandoah Natl Park and then head south through Appalachia in NC, SC, and possibly Georgia.

On the way back: Drive to Savannah (possibly), Charleston, Outer Banks, Virginia Beach, etc

Are there any cities/towns/places that would be recommendable for a visit?

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.

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?

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...

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?
