travelling is no big deal, basically anywhere you go you'll always find something new, if you are into it. Or not, or you will find it boring and unexiciting, because you're just not into it. Just book the cheapest flight to anywhere to Europe (good for first time travelers from the US as similar culture and easier to communicate) and enjoy.
>>1124648 Amtrak actually does not own any of those lines; it leases them all from the various big freight railroads that own them. The reason why there is not a diagonal northwest-to-Southwest route is because one was never built.
Later this week my fiance and I will be traveling to the Bay area for a wedding, where we'll be for about four days. At that point, we'll be driving down to LA where we'll have four days as well. I was wondering if you all could recommend some great and interesting things you've done in those two areas. We're fairly adventurous but not "shooting heroine in an alley" adventurous. For the Bay area, it doesn't need to be limited to SF since we'll have transportation.

>>1124605 Coit tower, Alcatraz, Chinatown, Haight-Ashbury, Pier 39, MOMA, Botanical Gardens, are all good, touristy things in SF. I'd recommend at least looking into those to see if you're interested.
Haight-Ashbury is fun if youre into alt culture of any kind. There are lots of fun and unique shops all around that area as well as other major tourist destinations all in walking distance (MOMA, Golden Gate Park, de Young Museum, botanical gardens, and the Japanese Tea Garden).

>>1124622 I've been a Bay Area native for 10 years and this anon knows what they're talking about. The designated tourist trap area of SF is Fisherman's Wharf, but Coit Tower, Chinatown, MOMA, Marin Headlands, etc. are all where the real fun is for someone visiting. I would add visiting the Exploratorium on one of their adults only nights if you're into science or want to see some Bill Nye craziness. The Berkeley campus has a problem with crime even though it's a really great school, so don't walk... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1124622 >>1125003 Hey, not OP here, but have a flight to SFO booked. Is San Fran similar to LA insofar as it's impossible to get around without a car? I wanna cheap out as much as possible on transport and walk for a couple hours everyday, like 5-6 hours. Is it possible to travel from say for example, SFO airport to Union Square on sidewalks or would I have to go really off country? I know that renting a car is pretty cheap but I'm under 21 with no license. Do pedestrians... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do you guys have any advice for people that aren't used to cold climates? I'm a 19 year old guy from Brazil and plan to travel to Hamburg in February. I know it's really, really cold in there, but I mean, can I still get out at night and enjoy parties and stuff like that? I want to enjoy this trip, but I am really afraid that this weather is gonna kill me or something. Should I just go in July or am I overthinking? Thanks
I once went to the UK after years of almost never experiencing temperatures below 25c, and spent the first few days feeling like I was going to shiver myself to pieces. Was fine after, even though subsequent legs of the trip involved Germany and Scandinavia, further into winter.
Of course when I came back to the equator I had to re-acclimatize (briefly) to the heat again. Walking out the airport was like stepping into a bowl of steaming soup.
So what's the worst thing that has happened to you on your travels?
I write because my latest trip ended on a sour note. I was riding my motorbike around the US southwest on a 5-6 week long road trip and ended up crashing the bike in the middle of no where. Was about 3 weeks into my trip and missed out on some locations I've wanted to visit for years. I had to take a Greyhound back home and on the way they lost my luggage... The accident is also a major dent in my budget, all in all it will probably cost me around $2500. On top of that I had other short trips... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I wouldn't view what happened to me on my first trip as a terrible experience so much as an interesting experience, but it ruined vacations for a lot of people in the area.
Back in 2013, when I was nineteen years old and taking my first ever trip overseas and alone, I ended up staying in a hostel five minutes away from Taksim Square in Istanbul. I was right in the middle of all the chaos when the Gezi Park protests erupted and got shot in the back with a rubber bullet by a police officer while walking down a street crowded with shoppers and cars. What happened is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
law enforcement couldn't enter a political party's headquarters or offices under any circumstances which weren't truly exceptional).
Anyway, shit really took off by the end of the day. I remember walking outside and heading back to Taksim, where people were building a giant barricade and stopping traffic. I took a right towards a wide boulevard called Tarlabaşı to get back to my hostel and saw thousands of people streaming up towards Gezi Park. Things quieted down at night but absolutely...

Was on a plane that had electrics knocked out by a lightning strike when I was a kid. Made an emergency landing at a small, and very closed, airport in Alabama, where we were on one side of a lowered security gate and vending machines, toilets, etc. were on the other. Got to go out and piss on the plane wheel, so it was not a total loss.
I'm from San Francisco and my company is sending me to our NYC office in July, so I need to find a place to live. Is it true that you need to make 50x your rent in order to even get a place?
I'll be working in lower manhattan. What are some decent places (when I say 'decent' I mean that I won't get robbed/stabbed and has access to the subway, not some fancy ass trendy neighborhood) in NYC that I can live that don't have ridiculous rent stipulations? Also, is it possible for me to rent without signing a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Trying to setup a PayPal account without luck. No idea why everything has to be so difficult when China is involved. Don't judge me, but I am trying to buy some World of Warcraft game time. I have a UnionPay card, haven't been able to get a visa card, and I would appreciate it if someone could say that it is possible (PayPal).
Hey guys, I'm thinking of booking a flight to spain this weekend. But ill be travelling alone. I'm excited but my friend strongly advised not to go as itll be boring as fuck. Can I get your guys opinion on travelling alone? And also, out of Ibiza, Palmo de Malorca, Barcelona or Lanzarote where would you rec to travel?
To start, your friend is wrong. Travelling solo may be daunting to some, but if you stay at hostels then you'll meet random people who will be down to explore, party, chill or whatever. I backpacked solo through Spain and had a kickass time.
As for suggestions, one place to go is Granada. I had a sick time out there! It's a small college city, so all the wine and sangria bottles were maybe 1-2 Euros. Plenty of locals mixed with travelers, and there are cool caves you can check out outside of town if your up to it.
If your near Barcelona during the summer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This Friday I will be flying in to Philly then going to Atlantic city for a wedding. Have already spent a few days in AC previously, mostly enjoined the boardwalk n the stray cats on the beach. Any recommendations for Philly? What to do what to see best cheesesteak? I am in to good neighborhoods and love historic cities, good architecture and lively places. Also any thing in AC I should do other than the boardwalk? Thanks
>>1124371 Jim on South St for a cheesesteak. Avoid Pat's and Gino's, they are tourist traps, and mostly only good if you are shitfaced at 2am when the bars close, and want some greasy food to fill your gut.
Old City, and Independence Hall, if you want some history. You can see the Liberty Bell near the hall as well. Museum of Art on the Ben Franklin Parkway has some interest stuff, if you're into that. Also, city hall has some nice architecture.

The Meeting Place in taipei was great a few years back. Lots of great food nearby. Sort of place that has a lot of long term guys - not always a good thing, but they were fun there.
There's some one in Dulan called Dulan 21 or something, owned by a Dutch guy. Great for seeing the sun rise in the morning. Was in there on my own with a girl when I stayed there, but was too autistic to do anything
For Tokyo the Sakura hostel in Asakusa is pretty good. More like a hotel with tiny private rooms, but with a hostel vibe. Bit far from the main action in the city,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
