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.
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?
Travelling from Israel to Sofia on September . How can I get the cheapest tickets, when should I buy them? Any cheap good hostels? How long before should I book? Anything special to see? I travel for a week which one night will be a concert, other than that I am open for suggestions. How much food and beer costs there?
Hi, I'm from Spain and I wanna move out to somewhere else. What do you recommend me? I'm looking for a place in Europe where I can live with only English as second language. I was thinking moving to Ireland but idk, any tips or ideas?
>>1121579 I want to stay there, to live there, for a few years. I'm 22, I have studied Fine Arts and I have worked as a designer, writer and in marketing. But I'm looking for almost any kind of job. Something in a cafe would be nice as a starting point
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.
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.
Expats of /trv/, how did you know you were ready to move to a new country? How much planning and preparation did you need? Are you planning to stay in your new country permanently?
I have a more specific problem which I'll post below, but I thought I'd keep it general to start off with so the threads not just about my problems. I'm interested to hear the experiences of any expats, so feel free to share.
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.
>>1119026 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:
- I realise I've definitely got a big case of 'grass-is-always-greener' syndrome, and the reality of living there... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1122461 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?
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.
>>1122015 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.
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?
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
