Has anyone here ever visited Montsegur in France? If so, what would you say would the be the "easiest" way to get there? As there seem to be no bus stations or anything nearby.

I've been there it's not far from home, but I don't really know what's the fastest to get there considering I just hiked
I guess you don't have a car since it's the easiest way to get there, isn't there transportation to the village next to it ?

I am coming from Finland. Now the cheapest way seems to be taking a flight to Paris, take a train/bus from Paris to nearest whatever town and hike to Montsegur.

How do you protect yourself against mosquitoes in tropical regions?
In particular I am going to South-East Asia in a week and will stay for a month. It's my first time in the tropics.

What I came up with so far:
- NOBITE spray for clothing
- NOBITE spray for skin
- longsleeve cotton shirts (the heat will probably kill me)
- longsleeve polyester shirts (like sports clothing)
- carrying a mosquito net since some hostels might be unprotected
- I can't get myself to wear long-sleeve pants rather than shorts, would this be a very stupid decision?

Sweat is stinky. Bugs love the byproduct of the bacteria produced in sweat. In fact food odor is so similar to stinky cheese, bugs will land on cheese in studies.

But they've known for a while CO2 attracts too (avoid exertive exercise at dawn/dusk peak biting times).

Not him, but long-sleeve for sure. After a day or so, you'll get used to it and not sweat as much as you did before.

Which people are genuinely nice? For me, so far it was the Taiwanese. The people whom I visited are in academia, like I was, and it was never necessary to talk about nothing in order to not feel uncomfortable.

The mum type ladies treated me as if I were their son (as I was told later).

I'm Romanian but live in the UK, and I'd say neither Brits nor Romanians are that nice. Neither are Italians, come to think of it.

hey /trv/, My wife and I haven't done much travelling, but we are going to do London/Amsterdam/Barcelona this summer. Any suggestions/tips? It will be on the shorter side (2 weeks inside of trans-atlantic flights) with only a few days in each city and we want to make the most of it.

aw, fuck man
a few days in london is like... going to an art exhibit and looking at one piece of art at random. Do you know what part of London you want to be in? Don't go south of the river, it's not very good down there. Try and seek out some stuff to do that's specifically interesting to you. Museums are good, if that's your thing. You can spend all three days at the British Museum if you want. You can go shopping, which is actually pretty cool if you find some groovy shops like Forbidden Planet.
Are you taking trains from london to amsterdam to...

No we are flying between all cities: 4 full days in London flight to Amsterdam the next day; fly to barcelona 3 days later; flight back to london 5 days after; and finally two nights in London before hoping back across the Atlantic. So we will have about six days in London.

You're crazy.

I was actually planning to visit North Korea as well but the current situation has gone from bad to much worse. I'm sure I'll hear about your hard labour sentence in the news soon.

You should go to SK first so you can enjoy some gorean "barbecue" before your future diet of grass and prison rats.

I'd advise against that. Foreign tourists are arrested and imprisoned there consistently and without notice. It's not worth it.

Johannesburg can be pretty bad if you dont pay attention to your belongings. There is visible security walking about, but it doesn't necessarily deter some opportunists.

Also be aware that there have been recent reports about a crime syndicate on flights to Asian countries where they ransack your overhead stored luggage when you're either asleep or gone to the bathroom.

I grew up in texas til I was 17. I've driven around here and there as soon as I could. It really depends on your definition of "genuine Texan experience" if you take the i10 route, which I imagine you will, near the end of your trip you'd have the option of going through San Antonio, which is where the Alamo is at. A lot of Hispanic culture with some areas still having the old times western look. But if you really want true western look you'd have to go further south to Laredo. Although it's...

I've got a few nights in LA in July.
I'll be with my missus and a friend of hers. We're from Australia and have never been to the USA.
Has anyone got some great recommendations for some trendy bars and such? Roof top bars, great beach bars etc etc.
Preferably on the cheaper side, but if there's some unmissable spots that are expensive, I'm all ears.
Also general LA things to do. We'll be staying in the West Hollywood area. Is public transport reliable etc? How expensive are taxis and shit?

These are not commonly associated with LA for a reason. I live here, and I'm the only person I know that uses the subway every day -- but I do it with a bike. Without a bike, it'd be a restrictively far distance to walk from WeHo to the Red Line (Hollywood/Highland), and you probably don't want to rent bikes for 3 people every day. Buses are 95% reliable when you use Google...

sounds like you don't really know LA.

Let me fill you in.

It will be a letdown. LA is not the sunny shiny city of beautiful beaches and pristine long lined avenues of palm trees. It is a flat grey smoggy sprawl of about 20 cities that bleed into each other to create an expanse of shit. Hollywood is a sad sad place filled with asian tourists and pathetic individuals who fell in love with the romanticized idea of California and came for stardom and never left. trendy and hip pockets of town exist in various places but give way to unorganized old strip malls...

I'm completely new to traveling. I live in northern Germany in a smaller village and I'm 19 years old, and lately I feel like actually doing more than just drinking with the same faggots every weekend and I want to experience things.

My plan for now is just to drive away for weekends, to nice areas in Germany, for as long as my money allows. But I don't want to pay money for hostels, so I was wondering if anyone here had any experiences with sleeping in your car and could give me advice.

How do they compare. You need to go with the plural of the verb here as there's more than one lake. The "s" in "Lakes" should have tipped you off.
