362 B,
Going to Thailand soon, wondering if I should get the rabies vaccination. Do you guys think it's neccesary? It's like £150, but obviously if I need it, I'll get it. My nurse said it was up to me, so now I don't know.

depends on where you're going and how long you're gonna be outdoors.

if you plan on doing any multiday iking, or taking a boat through a cave, etc, you should get it, even though chances are nothing will happen.

the need for it increases the further away you get from civilization. you have a 2 day limit to get to a hospital or something without the shot, which can sometimes be impossible to get a flight for if you're in indonesia, the philippines, or west of thailand. or on a mountain.

My friends and I are chilling in Schnelsen for the next few days and are curious as to what's to do, both day time and nightlife. We're willing to travel 30 - 45 minutes. We see that there's some kayaking and a room escape but that's all that's jumping out to us right about now. Any suggestions on what we should do??

So I'm heading to Japan for a couple of weeks this summer. What are some must see/do things while there?

Keep in mind that I'm not an otaku/weeaboo. I'm much more interested in historical and generally odd cultural things.

Things like the Jigokudani Monkey Park where they bathe in hot springs. Shit we just don't have in the west.

Hey /trv/,
I'm heading to Europe for 20 days this August, flying in and out of Frankfurt. This will be my first solo trip, although not my first time to Europe. Here's my city itinerary so far in terms of where I'll be spending each night. Any recommendations/suggestions for my itinerary? My budget is approximately $100 per day, although I'd be willing to go higher than that to do something really cool.

2 nights Ghent (probably day trip to Bruges or Antwerp)
5 nights Amsterdam
2 nights Utrecht
5 nights Berlin
4 nights Prague
1 night...

Not bad, I like it. I'd say spend one night less in Amsterdam and spend one in Antwerp or Brussels, but that's about it.
>>
You'll see enough amsterdam in 2 days. Maybe try fitting in Kopenhagen or London (going from ghent or brussels to london or paris is really easy). When in Ghent, you should have lunch at one of the new "flemish foodie" places (try Publiek, Volta, Karel De Stoute, Oak, Vrijmoed) or have a weekend brunch at De Superette. Be Sure to book a table a couple of months in advance (you can do this on their websites). These are all fancy "michelin star" places with young chefs. The lunches are mostly affordable (27euro's).
>>
>>1121091
I've already been to Paris many times, so I'll probably skip that, but I was not aware that London was that accessible. Is there really much to be seen in London in just a few days?

As far as Amsterdam goes, I'll probably be going on a bike trip outside the city for at least one day, but I'll look in to cutting that down.

Get some counseling and figure out what's bugging you. Traveling is not gonna solve anything.

Because travel should be a fun sidetrack to a fulfilling life, not the thing you live for in and of itself. You can see how unhappy the people who travel forever are when you meet them, they're almost like heroin addicts, chasing some dream they can never quite get since they have no real goals.

the weight of the added plastic
>>
>>1120776
Well, Weight=mass * gravity

So if we assume the mass of the plastic = 50g or 0.05kg

And we know that gravity = 9.8m/s^2

Then, W=0.05*9.8
=0.49kg*m/s^2

You may find it easier to say that it =0.49Newtons tho.

Hey /trv/;
For those of you that already visited auschwitz, what do you think its the best option,go solo or go with a guided tour?
For those who went solo , how was the experience?
For the others, which company did you choose?it seems that the price its almost the same for the ones that already checked.

Thanks

Girlfriend went and suggested a tour guide. While it's possible to do it alone, she said a tour guide is able to give you so much more information and tell you things that simply don't make it into the text books.

Went last year in October, long ques but they said it was the quiet season so I can only imagine how bad it could be, and we'd arrived on the first bus from Krakow!
Anyway the way we saw it, a guide will go at there pace through the camps and can rush through a lot of the buildings and exhibits that you'd otherwise slowly go through. You can also piggy back onto tours since they're fairly large 20+ people) and frequently overtake individuals looking through the camp.

There might have been a few buildings only the tours can enter, but it's only 1...

I've been to Texel and Schiermonnikoog. Gorgeous nature. On Texel there is a cool seal sancturay. But besides that there isn't much else to see. I believe Terschelling is a party destination in summer for Dutch high school normies.

Been to Terschelling a few times, some great beaches there, and the strandhotels do great snacks. Couple of decent places to eat by Brandaris too.

Been to Vlieland as well. The zuikerbrood there is amazing, so delicious. We'll worth a cycle round the island, it's beautiful in summer

Absolutely. I've been to all of them but Texel and it's really fun. Just relax, swim, go to the beach, cycle the dunes, go to the lighthouses, watch the seals, etc.

I also went skydiving on Ameland which is really amazing. I'd definitely recommend it. The view is spectacular and the jump even more.

Every foreign friend I ever took there loved it too.

Wadlopen is also a great activity. That's a big tip.

And the German wadden island Borkum is nice too.

I one time travelled for 4 months

2 months with friends
1 month alone
1 month with gf

My month alone blew the shit out of the rest of the trip, by far the highlight. You can do exactly what you want when you want with no consideration for others necessary. You don't notice how inconvenient little things like people being hungry or wanting to wake up later can have when you're burdened by them all day everyday (and you are equally burdening them).

So I highly rate it, but only...

Not true, I'm know around town as "the SUV guy" because I lived in my smallish one for about a year. I preferred it and in some ways it was better for my health. I still wonder why I don't move back....oh yeah.

Anyway I got really used to squatting over a small trash can with used old bags inside--sometimes I still do it at home because now it just feels more natural. I used to make fun of Indians "poo in the loo" and all that but it is genuinely a tough habit to break!

Not true at all. (okay some people would change their mind but doesn't mean that's you). borrow a friends van or something and do a lil road trip as a trial run though. sleeping in your car is a pain in the ass, vans are nice because you can actually spread out.

Hey fellow travellers.

I see maybe 30% of the threads are currently about Europe.
I think it makes sense since most people see more than 1 country when travelling Europe to post in one thread. That way we can share our questions and answers together.

I have a question. I'm doing a euro trip for a month in July and have most of what I want to do planned out. However, I'm finishing it in Rome and was wondering, I'll be there for 5 days and want to know what are some must sees. Should I buy tickets to stuff like the coliseum beforehand (online)?...

So for a first time traveller, I get that this is a massively subjective question, so I'd like to preface with this-

How long do you guys usually amble around Europe for? I've got this idea in my head of just wandering around for a month or two, so with that in mind I'd like to ask for a ballpark number, how much would it be prudent to take with me?
