I'll be going for a week to Athens, but no idea what there is to do.

Anyone have some stories/recommendations for this city?

I like food, drinks and going out. Also ancient Greek culture

Visit the Acropolis and the old city. I'd also recommend the Acropolis museum and the archaeological museum, both full of amazing artefacts.

A week is far too long in Athens though. Beyond the ancient sites there's almost nothing to recommend about it. It's a filthy, ugly city. If you can, go get a bus and go see Mycenae, Epidavros and Delphi, and also Nafplio.

well, the plan is to go have good food, go out until late and get up at 11. I'll also be checking some football matches for the Eurocup.

> Mycenae, Epidavros and Delphi, and also Nafplio.

thks, all seem quite far though. Aren't there any ancient sites within 1h bus/train?

I got my bunghole tongued by a frisky Japanese girl I met on tinder.

Good times

I try it out every time I visit a country. So far, this is my ranking of Tinder success:

1. Taiwan
2. Hong Kong
3. Japan - Osaka Area
4. Thailand
5. Singapore
6. Japan - Tokyo Area

Tokyo was basically a wasteland, must have swiped through 100 girls and got like one or two matches. Taiwan and Hong Kong were like buffets.

I've heard some negative things about how French teenagers treat Americans. Anyone have any experience with this?

You couldn't be more wrong, actually. Although American politics and foreign policy are often ridiculed in France and throughout Europe, you'll find that most Europeans, especially young Europeans admire Americans.

With that being said, 17 is a bit young to study abroad, quite frankly. I think he'd be better off taking a semester abroad in college instead.

I'm a French student.
It's really depend : during my Hightschool , there was a american teenager with use and it was cool, we have a different culture, but we do not reject him.

Now i'm in engineering school, and yes there are few american here , and we really don't like them. In that case, it's because of politics issue: To put it in simple terms, they are Trump supporter, and so racist, and in , in France, you cannot be publicly against Muslims, Arabs, or black. So yes, we treat them like they deserve it.

Anyone else only got their wanderlust kicking a bit later than the average traveller you see around here? I'm 23 and I haven't travelled much at all, nor did I think much of it until recently. How do you guys deal with the fact that you now have a fuck huge wishlist of destinations and knowing that you wasted all those prime years you could've travelled in?

I'm not even talking about the countryside (which is also beautiful) I haven't seen metropolitan cities look so comfy before.

I don't want to come off as a weeb or something.
But I realize how aesthetically pleasing the buildings look.
>their color
>their shape

Is it because I grew up watching anime or something?

Can anyone else relate?

In all seriousness though how can you find cities in Japan aesthetic? I live in and love Japan and I think they are shit tier disgusting during the day. Japan has the ugliest urban environments in the G7 and probably second only to South Korea in the developed world.

You should also seek out a remote part of the great wall and do a hike there. Most of the touristy parts of the great wall suck, and it goes through some nice mountains.

But all I can suggest is meet in a very public place and if anything at all seems off or uncomfortable gtfo, order a uber and go somewhere safe without him/her.
Also, be familiar with the area you meet before you do meet up and tell someone you know what time and where you are meeting them.

There are some crazy motherfuckers out there and having no friends to verify who this person is sends up some red flags imo.

I've posted in on /adv/. Some people on that board pointed out that it is very possible he created a Facebook account just for adding people he met online and he doesn't have an actual Facebook for people he knows irl. Those /adv/isors said that they did this themselves so it may not be a red flag but I should still be cautious.
I really dislike the way how there is no way for me to "verify" his identity although I've known him for a couple of years now and there are zero red flags. It seems...

He also mentioned how he wants to bring his brother along as his brother likes history so he knows more about the historical attractions in their area. However, he still hasn't tell his brother about our meeting yet. My irl friend finds that odd. Some /adv/isors found that odd, some did not.

Title says it all.

I'm a complete newfag to hiking, but I want to get into it. I have this wanderlust that's been brewing in me for the last two years, and it makes me miserable.

I want to see the world in all its rugged, unchecked beauty. I want the breathtaking views and to feel the earth under my feet and my calves to be on fire for the next few days after the hike.

Problem is I'm poor as a motherfucker and live alone. Thanks to the gods above that I'm in decent shape (not overweight, decent stamina), but at the end of the day breaking...

Cool term bro where'd u get it, /b/?

Also get a back pack, cheap ones on amazon if u can't afford a good brand like deuter, osprey, Gregory, etc. go to a reputable store such as REI where u know nothing they sell is shit and get the products they offer.
U can get some stuff off amazon like a backpacker stove for 8$ off amazon is what I use.
Get some hiking boots not work boots, Iv also used athletic shoes on over night trips before getting my boots. Also look in to a backpack tent or a hammock, would be cheaper. Don't really get ur question. U but the stuff u need, millions of articles and websites that say what u need. Don't buy an being stuff u don't need.
Also California is great for backpacking or hiking.

Nara is a meme city

Some friends and I will be spending 1 night in Vegas, 3 nights in Zion National Park.

So far our game plan is to do the 1 overnight Zion Narrows (http://www.zionnational-park.com/zion-narrows.htm), the epic 16 mile water hike down the Virgin River (We're all pretty experienced campers). Next day were planning on doing Angel's Landing during the morning, and maybe some other paths afterward, not too sure yet.

Anyone from that area have any other suggestions? Has anyone here done the Narrows? It's supposed to be like one of the greatest hikes in...

The subway is Awesome as fuck, look it up, you wont want to miss it.

Also I prefer Observation Point to Angels Landing, similar hikes, and Angels Landing may be a bit more treacherous, but the view at the end of Observation Point is better, its one of the best views ive ever seen after climbing a mountain, Angels Landing view will be similar but not as jaw dropping as Observation Point.

No words for looking down that canyon.

Hej Swebros, me and a friend will be roadtripping through the southern part of your country in the beginning of August, and I wonder if you guys have any tips regarding places to visit and things to do. We're mostly interested in seeing nature, cozy towns and historical sights.
I'd also love to hear tips for the best places to go wild camping in Sweden, preferably near lakes.
Tack!

Country gets more beautiful further north, but people more scarce.

Personally I prefer mid-midsouth area. Your map says "Falin, Rättvik, Mora, Leksand". This area is packed with tourist shit and lakes to go camping.

Population is alright but most will be racist rednecks wherever you go.
