If cost matters, it would be most useful if you'd at least state your current location.

So, I have the opportunity to relocate to any state in the United States save for Hawaii. What state should I move to? Why? I'm currently in Texas.

In couple of months I begin my around-the-world trip. I leave from Barcelona to Asia to begin with, but I really don't know how to reach India. Pakistan seems tricky, and I need an invitation card from a local to get in, and the other way its through Kazakhstan, China and Nepal, but thats around 5.000km longer. What do, /trv/?

Container Ship.jpg
39 KB,
Next spring I'm travelling from England to North Carolina by a merchant vessel. The journey should take twenty days.

I'll be staying in my own cabin on the outside of the ship, in the captain's quarters, with a decent view out to sea. There's no internet connection so i'll mostly be reading and writing.

Anyone had any experience doing this? Tips/what to expect? I can watch the captain do his thing up top if I like, and virtually nowhere on the ship is out of bounds. I'm hoping it'll be a small adventure before I reach America.

That sounds like a cool thing to do OP. 20 days is a long time. I imagine after a few days of seeing everything on the boat you will start to get bored.

Bring audiobooks, mayhe try to buddy up with someone on the boat so you can sit around and talk. Youre talking about 3 weeks on a boat, it could get pretty mind-numbing.

Also i dont know how big and strong the boat is but i hope you arent bothered by seasickness. Going into the middle of the atlantic for that long youre bound to have some wavy days.

Good...

Take some snacks and other luxuries with you. The food will likely be a very limited menu so if there's something you don't like then your options will be very limited.

Most vessels have a DVD and book library but don't expect either to be well stocked.

Things are regimented with set meal times etc. Expect to be on your own alot during the day as everyone else is either resting or working.

In 20 days you will likely meet and get to know the entire crew.

I don't know if you smoke but often the best places to meet and chat are in...

Flying from JFK tomorrow and I have a few TSA questions

1) Do toothpaste/mouthwash/bodywash/etc (all travel sized) need to be in a ziploc baggie if they're in checked baggage? Or can they ONLY be in checked baggage?
2) I have an envelope (bigger envelope, maybe 10 by 6 inches) that's carrying a picture frame with a picture, a card, and a couple other things in my backpack (carry on), will they want me to empty out the contents of the envelope even though it's in my backpack and they can probably see it through the xray?
3) Likewise I have a gift bag...

It's always best to be forthcoming. The envelope needs to be easy to open for the TSA, and the frame needs to be easily taken off to see what's inside. It might even be safer to give the envelope to the TSA directly to inspect. (in order to prevent further suspicion.) And yes the gift bag will need to be emptied and inspected, so you might as well just give that to the agent as well.

Are you sure on the picture frame? It's not glass and it can't be opened.

Do American airports just not have scanners/xray or are they just trying out being a police state for a little bit?

I need HD flyby footage of the Rio Christ Statue for a college editing project, but I'm not doing well on finances. Do you have, or know where I can obtain royalty free footage of such a thing?

Solid suggestions, but my body can't handle the biking atm.

Wine tours are always a good idea anon, and plenty of MILFs will be there.

>Sardinia
No idea about Sardinia myself, I just recommended it because cousin said it was cheaper than Corsica and really awesome. Also the ferry from Marseilles doesn't go to Corsica either. But if it seems couply, I'd avoid.

Also there are Roman ruins in Arles, Orange and Nîmes if that's your thing.

Is this a safe country for westerners to travel to?

>>1123906
For men, yes. But every woman I know who has traveled to North Africa (notably Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt) has had an absolute dogshit time with harassment. And by "harassment" I don't mean hoodrats saying "hey sexy," I mean, men grabbing their arms and asking how many donkeys they'll require for marriage, and/or getting rocks thrown at their heads.
>>
Completely safe from a personal safety point of view, as in, there's no violent crime anywhere. But keep your eyes open and your wits sharp, or they'll fleece you in a minute. So many scams.

They'll overcharge you at rates of 1000% on taxis, they'll overcharge you on cafes and restaurants, they'll put food on the table that you never ordered and then charge you even if you haven't touched it. Don't buy anything on the streets but the simplest of souvenirs, and only if you have to. The quality is atrocious and prices for whitey are through the roof. Ironically, street food vendors where the only ones who didn't try to rip me off.

I'd say its quite safe even at night, even in the poorest parts of the cities (the ugly parts of the soukhs). Morrocans, and I guess arabs in general, tend to all go out at night, from sundown til past midnight, so it's not very likely that you'll be out on the streets alone at night.

Where are you thinking of going?

>But every woman I know who has traveled to North Africa (notably Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt) has had an absolute dogshit time with harassment.

Yeah, I agree with this, though I believe in Morocco it's not as bad as in Egypt. I haven't heard of anyone being physically harmed there. Grabbing your hand, yeah, but they did that to me (guy here) as well when they wanted to take me on a tour of the city. Just my experience.

I applied from the US, Boston consulate. My wait time so far is 9 weeks with no update on the DFA tracking.

Between the US presidential race and the Brexit, I feel that everyone's applying.
