Machu Picchu! I'm doing the 4 day Inca Trail trek in August. I'm 30, reasonably fit (have been cycling 11km every day for the last month and will continue to do so til I start my travels at the end of July). What sort of weather can I expect? Are the mosquitos really that bad? Tell me your experiences please /trv/
I'm going to the Florida Keys in two weeks. I usually travel to historical places but I really wanted to check out the Caribbean and do the traditional "paradise" vacation thing so I booked a flight and resort reservations in the Keys.
My only current plan is to spend a day at Fort Jefferson (pic related) in the Dry Tortugas, which is a daylong trip from Key West, but other than that I'm free for the other 4 days. Is Deep Sea Fishing worth the price?
What food options should I look into? I've never had Cuban cuisine and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1117727 Florida Keys is interesting, I was there for a week I think with Boy Scouts, there's a big thing called Sea Base where captains let Scouts on their ships and sail them around. One of the most interesting things to do is to drive from Miami to Key West and just do the interesting stuff you see along the way. Feeding the giant carp was cool, I think the place was called Robbies; Stand there with food and they jump up. Southernmost point in the US is cool, and so is the Conch Republic Government Building.

Going to India this summer, and including going to Delhi I am either going to Mumbai or Chennai for a week. Any recommendations on which city I should choose? I can only go to one of them, and I dont know particularly much about either.
Dear trv I'd like some advice on the means of traveling in the United States. From June till July I'm traveling the States cross-country on my own. I'll be visiting some family living in cities spread through the country. I'm in doubt about how I shall travel. Initially I was thinking about Greyhound but my family think it's too dangerous. Is this true? Is it responsible to rent a car to drive on my own? I'm from Europe and have sufficient driving experience though I'm 23 years old and heard it can be problematic to rent a car under 25.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1118104 Definitely would not recommend renting a car but you could if you wanted to. You sometimes have to pay more since you're not yet 25. The only real reason is because even though you can drive, driving long distances in another country takes much more focus and attention. You could easily fall back into your regular driving habits when you're tired or hungry. In the US, rest areas could be far and few in between even if you're Pennsylvania, much less the midwestern states. I've personally driven from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1118104 I recommend driving, Greyhound takes forever to get somewhere, they stop at every little town. Renting a car is cheaper in the US than in Europe and you will be able to see much more by being able to make side trips and stop when you choose. I don't know what the other anon was talking about concerning rest areas, unless you have to piss every 30 minutes they are on every interstate highway often. I have driven road trips from NC to AZ to Idaho, Maine and Florida never had a problem about rest areas. Out west... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1112081 Shout out to the British businessman on the rickshaw in Gothenburg. You told me I need to figure my shit out and start a career, or else I'll be one of those loser hippy euro backpackers in his mid 40s living in a squat and bragging about lays from 20 years ago, who everyone avoids in the pub. You tipped me 150 pounds and begged me to get my shit together before I'm too old.
I take my final real estate license exam tomorrow morning :)
>>1112081 Shout out to that central asian man I met at a restaurant in Egypt. He asked if we were part of the Muslim brotherhood, kind of an inappropriate question because if we said yes we could go to jail. Then when he knew our group was American, he said America good, Russia good good.
Hey guys, I'll be visiting the UK later this week. I'll start with a week in London, then a week in Edinburgh and then 5 days in Bristol before heading to London for another night to catch a cheap flight back home. I have some ideas about what to do and see when I'm there. I really like culture and history, I'm a big fan of museums and historical sights. I also like the culinary aspects of traveling and always enjoy eating and drinking native delicacies when I'm exploring new places. I like going to a pub or bar but I'm not much... Comment too long.

Bristolian here. If you're on a budget theres loads to do for free round here, especially if local history is your thing. Couple of free things easy enough to get to from the center: Bristol museum and gallery Cabot tower M-Shed Clifton suspension bridge Avon Gorge Cheddar gorge hike The street art bonanza around Stokes croft Check out our historic harbour
If you're looking to spend a bit of cash check out: SS great Britain @Bristol Clifton observatory and caves Wooky Hole in Cheddar

>>1110668 Hey, thanks for all the suggestions. I'm glad to get some insight on the one destination of my trip I have the least amount of ideas about what to do! Where I'm from some nice cider is very appreciated so dry cider is something I can get behind very well, sounds great. I'll be in Bristol from the 20th to the 24th of may. Why, would you be up for a cheeky pint or some cider with me? I'd be very glad to know some actual Brits when I get there.
Unfortunately I've not a statistic yet. I can though tell you that I spent 750€ for a 15 days trip with bycicle (included transportation with boat and few train tickets) in Italy in the high season. So I'm frugal enough but I would like to erode a little more my expenditure (i.e. more free-camping, couch surfing (et simila) and cook my food once in a while).
>>1118044 I don't typically budget for travel. I plan a trip, estimate costs and try to save up for that trip. I'll say that I don't usually spend much in a typical year. I do have some international travels that might be costly. In the past couple of years, I've probably spent 3000 or so (4000?) on flights, hotels, car rentals. This includes visiting friends, family, weddings, and vacation. On average, I fly once a year somewhere usually domestic for business or personal matters. I don't expect to spend... Comment too long.

The most important piece of equipment you have on a journey of any length, what keeps your feet dry /trv/? I rock Docs because they look cool and don't give me blisters. Bad part is they are heavy as shit.
Yeah, I get compliments for my cherry red docs anywhere in the world, but fuck walking more than 5km in them. I got some adidas daroga plus shoes and they seem great for walking great lengths in city terrain thus far.
I am a Canadian citizen, white, Germanic stock. I moved back home to Canada over a year ago with my Swedish girlfriend, and we got married the first week we were here. We submitted all the paperwork shortly thereafter. It has been over 1 year and we have not received anything from the government, not even work papers or a letter of confirmation.
Has any European here ever attempted moving to Canada for love? any advice you guys could give me?

Crazy coincidence cause I came to this thread right after I read an article posted in the Toronto Fb group for sw Swedes: https://www.thestar.com/news/immigration/2016/05/13/frustration-abounds-for-immigration-call-centre-users.html
I'm Canadian too and likely not gonna end up with a North American. Almost all of my friends who have married to get their partner in has had a hard time. Luckily Sweden is most first world than Canada so that should help your chances.
Quebec City is beautiful, in the old spots. There are times when it feels like you've been transported to Normandy. If it weren't for all the horrible tourists it would be easy to forget you're in North America.
