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/?
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.
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...

>>1127527 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.
How far fetched would it be to circumnavigate the world while backpacking? My plan is to start in the US Fly to London Take train to Paris Berlin Munich Vienna Budapest Krakow Kiev St. Petersburg Take the trans-Siberian rail from St. Petersburg to moscow, then to Vladivostok Tokyo Fly back to LA or SF then find my way back to Cleveland
I have $99k total saved up, although i would really like to not spend all that. This is a life dream ive had. I plan on devoting maybe 3-4 months to this.
Im also grappling with the fact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I had plans to do hiking and they went out the fucking window. What're some cool, non-strenuous things to do in Southern France? I've seen Carcassonne and I've been to Toulouse, which I'll def return to.

>>1127036 >Is there any merit to getting shitfaced in Chateauneuf? 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.
What occupations provide the most ability to travel? As in, the most flexibility and leisure time, while still getting payed (no matter how little)? Is it freelancing? Being a National Geographic corespondent?
What about volunteering with payed accommodation and some food? Has anyone here done this before? Any organizations that sponsor this?
>>1126491 >get a job with a multinational corporation >rise through the ranks until you're over 30 years old >enjoy pretty much unlimited free travel worldwide There's actually a high demand for people willing to travel a lot for work since most people are reluctant to be away from their friends/spouse/children ect for long periods of time
>>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.

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.
