So, what did you do there? Did you get out of Cape Town at all? Share pics?

I might have some questions for you, based on answers to those general points of information.

Considering going to South Africa soon, but I need to know: how's Joburg nowadays?

I heard it has a phenomenally high crime rate, but I've also heard that the crime rate has gone down and police response times have shortened in the not too distant past.

Depends on the neighborhood. Having said that, I walked through Hillbrow, a notorious neighborhood, at night with a huge duffel bag around my shoulders that had my passport and tons of electronics, and nothing happened. I was an absolute retard and nothing happened, if you're smart you'll be fine. Petty crime is big, just don't look like a tourist. Joburg is a cool city.

Is that the best way? Honestly I'd carry it all in a bag if I could

No, this is fairly clearly a modified Latin alphabet. A few of the letters (particularly the backwards 'c', backwards 'e') look like letters from the African Reference Alphabet, and the diacritic marks look sort of Arabic, so I would suspect a language of some Muslim people of Africa.

Although i did it few times. Its more fun to stay a few days. Talk and get some insiders info. Completely depended on how u comunicate with your host and how it clicks i guess.

I stayed for weeks at full serviced mansions/apartements/ gated comunnities.

But also shared small spaces with lots of other surfers at hosts.

Its a rather cool comunnity, if u can filter out the weird people and conect with like minded people.

Even then its always a guess.

Hi travelniggers!

Im going to Sri Lanka in july, does anyone have any great reccomandations?

I was thinking of driving down to Galle from Colombo, maybe stopping in Hikkaduwa (or is it a shithole?)

Then checking out the beaches in the south, around Tangalle, surfing a bit (any good ones?).

Driving up to Ella, hiking in the tea plantations and maybe even up Adams Peak which is 2 k masl. On the way stopping in the national parks etc.

Does it sound like a good plan? Any must sees? Hidden treasures? Wasn't really thinking about hitting...

Galle is easily worth a day, quite nice really. Hikkaduwa isn't much to look at, but there's nice beaches along that stretch of the coast. Road's quite busy though, and the driving style is rather Asian.

Don't know about surfing, but definitely an option.

Ella/Adam's Peak/National Parks are definitely nice, the scenery around that area is quite...

Hey,
I'm guessing this is a bit uncalled for and some people may be upset about it but I'm here for a bunch of newbie questions.

Some background:
I'm a 26yo male from Israel.
In the past I've done some camping in israel (no more than a week long), and went on two 1-week vacations in Europe (sleeping in a hotel).

This October I'm thinking of going on a 1-month tour around Europe.
My initial thoughts are to go around a few countries spending 3-5 days in each country, using the train as my main transportation between cities / countries.

choose one

you better stay longer or choose less countries.
>>
>>1123083
Granted, I won't have any "deep and long built" relationships nor a firm understanding of the various cultures I may encounter, But I still think for a first tour around Europe it'll be okay.
I may reduce the number of countries to say just the 4 that I didn't list as optional, leaving about 7 days for each country.

I would love to stay longer, but that's just impossible for me at the present time.

I would love some input regarding the other things, if you have some?

thank you :)

There are Mississippi river cruises, but they aren't cheap. (They have to pay their employees USA-tier wages, as opposed to ocean cruises, who can hire Filipinos for much less.)

Hey guys, so I was just looking up things to do in the US Virgin Islands, and it looks like a blast. Between the historical shit and water activities looks awesome to me. I've never been diving before, and they have ship wrecks you can go explore. I am thinking about going for 3 days in July. Only thing is, I'd be going alone. Is the US Islands designed for families/romantic get-aways? Or would a single guy like me have fun there?

The only issue being alone is safety. It's offseason right now, so not as many tourists to be company everywhere, and the locals have desperate economic times (it's expensive to live on an island and work is hard to come by).
I am a solo diver. You will need to research the dive company well, because you will be alone with someone who is either incompetent or won't have someone up top or so on. If there are other people going in the boat, it's better for them to save on costs, just make sure...

I'd be going in July. But thanks for the advice anyways. It sounds really cool!

This might be a stupid question (I've never snorkeled or dived before). But do you have to get/be certified to do it? Even if you go with a licensed instructor? I'm not sure how it all works. I just think it would be sick to look at some shipwrecks off Saint Thomas.

Just take a cruise, see if you like it first. Saves you a little money, plus you won't have to do everything alone. I've been on several cruises to many of the islands. I don't know if I would go there and stay though.

People are very friendly in India if you actually talk to them. If you wander from tourist attraction to tourist attraction and only talk to the people who approach you (100% scam artists) then yeah it's gonna seem like people aren't friendly.

I've been to India 3 times for 2-3 months each time and I always find cool, friendly, generous people, but never at a famous tourist destination. The cool middle class people are in malls, it's like the 80s over there and malls are cool to hang out in. I've also met cool Indians at places where domestic Indian tourists go, but almost no foreign tourists.

Plus, there are a ton of backpacker/hippie towns where you can make new friends just by sitting down at a strangers table/pile of pillows acting as a chair and introducing yourself. I've never had a problem meeting new friends in India and it's one of the reasons why it's one of my favorite countries to visit.
