I'm going backpacking for the first time around Europe and I was wondering if it's safer to keep valuables on you in a backpack or something, or to just leave them behind in a luggage at the room of the hostels I'll be staying at. The rooms will probably be dormitory style, but I'm traveling with friends so there won't be any strangers. Have any of you ever had something stolen from you while staying at a hostel?

Europe is big and there is no general rule. Usually there are lockers. In most of western Europe this is safe enough. Putting anything valuable in a backpack is the worst idea. Anywhere, even at home. A smart person would not carry a fortune around while travelling. All you need is passport, bank card, phone and some money. All of this would fit in your pocket.
Would it make sense to carry 2 different wallets, one very hidden with most important stuff like passport, and another one with a bit of money and maybe my drivers license?

Im going to Prague, first time travelling alone and Im a bit paranoid
>Putting anything valuable in a backpack is the worst idea
Is it really? It seems like it'd be easier to reach into someone's pocket than to unzip a bag.

I am brown (Indian). I could probably pass at a local in places in South and Central America where I am visiting. But, I have part of my hair bleach blonde coloured. Will that put me in danger of kidnaping and shit when I explore Colombia, Venezuala and other such places?

If you are more Dravidian-like you will not pass as a local. Anyway, why would you go to Venezuela?
>Anyway, why would you go to Venezuela?
>brown guy with blonde dyed hair

If you were in Mexico they'd think you were a local resident.

I went there in 2008, it looked ok, I couldn't tell whether the tigers were sedated or just snoozing in the sun.

When I patted one and it twitched in its sleep, I jumped half a foot. Most of my photos with them are hoverhands.
Been to Thailand a number of times, so glad I never supported that tourist trap. Why do Thais treat their animals like Shit? Don't even get me started on the elephants
I don't care.

I know that as an American I'm supposed to be obsessed with animals all the time, but I just don't give a fuck. I have no empathy for lower life forms and although I'm forced to pretend offline I'm not going to continue that here.

Take Bart and caltrain to San Francisco and walk around. Do some exploring.

I'm moving to Oakland as well. What neighborhood will you be in?
Very South Berkeley, but will be in Oakland most of my time. Like 6 blocks north of Ashby BART station.

Hey, does anyone know if I could sit in on lectures at Berkeley or some other school, or would I not get in bc of ID?

I got my camera backpack, reverse zipped, so cant be thieved out of while wearing and an osprey backpack that attaches to my large osprey bag.

You can get camera bag internals as an insert and put them in regular bags too.
Kelty Redwing 50. It's a little too big sometimes but for the price it has been very good to me.
When I was a young traveller going abroad for the first time my mother, being the loving but over protective person she is, got me a Pacsafe treksafe 100. It's got slash proof front, bottom and straps as well as being near impossible to open without removing it (the zippers clip near the neck).

It's pretty nice, though I wouldn't have ever bought it myself. Got a few nice pouches inside. I don't remember what brand my hiking backpack, it's nothing fancy.

My problem:

I live in the UK, but have never been completely happy here. Mostly it was just a youthful dream to live somewhere more naturally beautiful, but as I've got older I've noticed lots of other problems too. My generation doesn't have the same mobility as my parent's generation. Increasing house prices and student debts mean that, unless you come from a rich family, it's very hard to become rich because you're paying into someone else's pocket for the majority of your working life, and don't get to keep much for yourself....

I was ready the minute I saw this country will never offer me anything good without influence and money. Since I don't have any money, I can't even start planning. My only asset is my car and even if I sell it it won't be enough to move to a different country legally. I'd love to stay permanently somewhere I could live peacefully.

So since then, I've returned to the UK, and my old problems have come back. I find it hard to meet like-minded people here, in terms of both friends and potential partners. My life here is fine, but completely boring. I keep wondering how much better it would be if I was still in Canada (or somewhere else with a more outdoorsy and friendly culture, like New Zealand). However:

How do I convince friends to go on a camping roadtrip?

They want to have some faggy lads holiday where we just drive to Greece or some shit and stay in a family hotel, how do I convince them to go on a roadtrip with tents instead?

>inb4 get new friends

There's a very wide gulf between what you want and what they want.
Their idea is way more normal, so it can be very difficult for you to convince them to go on a less traditional holiday.
Is it possible to compromise? Is the roadtrip aspect very important to you? Nature? Can you find one of those awful family hotels in a place with beautiful nature that appeals to you? Would you be able to live with that?
The thing is, our budget is tight. My idea is that if we go on a camping roadtrip, we'll save more money and have a longer/better experience overall.

They just want to go to a family hotel in Greece for a cheap package holiday. The thought of it pisses me off
Take a camping road trip by yourself. If your bros don't want to do it, don't make them. If you force it, you might find yourself uninvited. It's their holiday, too.

Be sure to ask them for the real beheading experience. You don't want to get some fake touristy shit where they don't even lock you up and torture you first.

He's from Central Europe. He's not saying he neccesarily wants to go to Central Europe

That said, where do you want to go, OP? Somewhere in Europe or further afield?
Doesn't really matter since I have two weeks I wouldn't really mind flying a bit further as well. If there's other stuff to do than beaches, that would be a great plus too

How single friendly is Paris as well as the rest of France? I'm thinking of traveling there by myself and don't really want to stay in a hostel either. I'm just wondering if most of the things to see and do there are more targeted towards couples and romance.
12 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Is this the /trv/ equivalent of /tv/'s meme about the "no singles policy" in cinemas? What are you even asking about? Will the French allow you to book a hotel room for one person? Yes. Will the French sell you a single ticket to the Louvre? Yes. Will teenagers laugh and throw stones at you for eating lunch in a cafe alone? Highly improbable. The city is full of tour groups, school groups, couples and - yes - people going about their business alone.
No I mean I just imagined that a city that's known for being a romantic destination would have attractions more oriented for couples like gondola rides and stuff like that.
Well what are you interested in? It's the second largest city in Europe; you can find plenty of things to entertain yourself, not least the museums.

Has anyone ever solo traveled to New Zealand/Australia? I'm thinking about going near the end of the year and am interested in others experiences. Interested in pretty much anything, just want to explore what little of the countries I can while I'm there.

I'll be coming from the US. Tentatively flying into Wellington (i know a guy who lives there) and then to Sydney (since it's closest/cheapest to fly from NZ). Any advice?

I've never heard of anyone doing that before. Sounds risky, m8
Just keep an eye out for... the high price of food?
All flights from the US come in through Auckland so it would make sense to start there. Noting of note in Auckland but you could pretty easily hitch down to Napier, Taupo or Rotorua. Shit, even Tauranga is pretty cool place which is near Auckland. Then you could hitch to New Plymouth or something then get a train or hitch down to Wellington. Maybe fly to the South Island (Wellington to Christchurch is about 40 NZD one way) and check it out then try and fly to Sydney out of Christchurch. I pretty regularly get that flight for around 200 NZD. Sydney is okay but there is some sweet...
