561 KB,

Vienna 2 days
Bratislava 3 days
Zakopane 3 days
Krakow 4 days
Wroclaw 4 days
Prague 1 day hop on the plane

Ive read some stuff about bratislava can be seen in one day but im mainly going to have fun with my friends so its ok if we dont see new things everyday

I'd move a day from Bratislava, Zakopane or Wrocław to Vienna, there's a lot to see there and you'll run out of time with just 2 days. Otherwise a solid list.
>>
Bratislava: can be done it 6 hours
I think you could dedicate some days from Bratislava and go for Vienna for an extra day or get a train to Brno
Krakow: can be done in 2 days easily, I suppose you can visit the salt mines and concentration camps for the other 2 days while there
>>
>>1123867
Zakopane is honestly not worth it unless you really like mountains, nature etc. Add a day or two to Prague or Vienna. Wrocław can be probably done in 1 day less as well, unless you want to go really in-depth.
Im not sure about Bratislava.
You could go visit Auschwitz while you are at it as well, although i am not wsure if it will fit what you want to do.

tl;dr I'm trying out cheap one-way plane tickets and I plan on bringing my 30L backpack to avoid luggage fees. on the left is the caliper of the allowed cabin luggage which is free, and on the right are the dimensions of my backpack.

the thing is, it's smaller regarding the volume and width, but it's 5 cm too high. will I still be able to pass? I really don't have much experience with planes.

Hey /trv/ I never thought I'd find myself making a thread like this but I have to put my stupid ego aside.

After about 8 years of talking with a Colombian friend over the internet who lives in Medellin, I have decided to pay her a visit and go to the city (full disclosure, I never met her in person before). I'll do 4-5 Workaway weeks in a hostel to take in the place a little more.

I'm from the UK and speak no Spanish, never been to Latin America before. I am aware of Medellin's past and the progress it has made but understand there are still...

What's up

I'm a European guy who lived in Colombia for a little over a year, visited Medellín a handful of times and I must say it is one of my favourite cities on the continent. The people are awesome, the parties great and the women beautiful. Not to mention the food! If you get the chance (who am I kidding, you will at every corner) definitely try a Bandeja Paisa. Fucking good.

Anyway, the security situation in Medellín has improved immensely in the past 15 or so years. While of course there are still problems of course you will have nothing to...

I'm heading to Ireland for a week in July.

I'm flying in and out of Shannon Airport/Limerick, but I'd like to visit Dublin.

Can I get away with not renting a car? Is the bus/ train system robust enough to get around?

Also, are there any "must see" attractions out in the countryside?

Tbqhwu m8, I'd just rent the car. Trains here are expensive as fuck, so generally we rely on buses (like Aircoach and GoBE, which are the cork-dublin ones), but public transport overall is fairly patchy. Car would be a lot easier.

As for must see stuff, definitely go to the Aran Islands. Tend to be a bit full of burger tourists in the summer, but still great. The Burren and the Cliffs of Moher are worth a look, and West Cork and Kerry is just fantastic in general.

The Ring of Kerry is what all the burgerfats do on coach tours, never...

I have aspergers syndrome and my main fear about travelling is that it is only for socially competent people. For example I remember talking to this little French girl (she was pretty but kind of simple) telling me how strangers let her sleep on there sofa and how everyone she met was nice to her. If I did this I would almost certainly be treated like shit, in fact the only people I ever see do well out of things like erasmus are people who were already popular at home. For example a guy I know who was a 21 year old virgin basically made no friends, whereas a pretty foreign...

I traveled fairly widely and I have quiet bad aspergers

people thought I was really weird everywhere, it was like "where's wally" in a lot of places I went to

I also found the organizational aspect caused me a lot of anxiety, flights, plans, timetables

but people were really helpful everywhere I went, and traveling was one of the best things I ever did

just don't take the "don't plan just do it" approach, you will stress out too much; plan things propperly in advance

socially you will do about as well anywhere, I didn't go to more parties or meet more people; realistically don't expect that to change.

If you just go in sightseeing mode, you don't really have to deal with people much, except for stereotypical interactions with hotel clerks and waiters at restaurants.

I tell you, when I went to spend a couple of weeks in Japan, I pretty much couldn't talk to anybody, but I still had a good time.
>>
I am borderline asperger and i love to travel. Just plan a lot so you will have much less anxiety. Alcohol helps me a lot on the social part, of course depends on who you find.

I would rather fly Spirit than contract the plague. But they're famous for having a hard time getting their planes to take off on time.

If they were going to save me more than $150 or more than 2 hours' travel/transfer time, I would book a ticket with them. Worst case scenario, you have a travel horror story to share.

I will fly them in the future for short flights but probably not bad for longer flights if i get the nice seats int he front.
I'm also a severe cheapskate and i could not give a shit about any "service" I just want to pay you gas money get me from A to B the business model is perfect for me.

They even fly to south america which is nice super cheap flights to Lima may be worth the shity little airplane.

My travel plan is to stay 3 nights in Vienna, than travel during the night to Venice, stay there for 5 nights, followed by taking the highspeed train to Rome and stay there for 4 nights.

I'm just wondering, is this a good balance/good loacations?

Yes, I'm doubtful still, but maybe change it to:

Vienna: 3 nights
Venice: 3 nights
Rome: 4/5 nights
Florence: 2/3 nights

But I'm planning Florence/Tuscany area mostly for an other time, because of Pisa, Sienna, Luca and what not etc.

I'm mostly wondering if 3 nights is enough for Venice and how much is recommended for Rome.

3 nights is okay for Venice, I wouldn't go under. Rome is a big city and you need to think of how much stuff you want to see
