I am about to travel to NYC for the 1st time, going with my gf, and we can't decide between two places to stay, one in Ham Heights and the other in Bushwick, near Williamsburg. Both of them seem nice, comfy, everything covered. What would you /trv suggest?
Where are the best pubs/bars located in London? I'll be visiting in a few weeks and will be in the Pimlico area. There aren't a whole lot of bars in the area so I'm trying to figure out where to go with my brother.
Looking for places with a younger (20's) crowd with reasonable (i.e. 5 gbp/pint or less) prices. The trendier the better, but not looking for clubs. We are planning to take the tube/use uber (if uber is even a good option in London) so we can stray a little far.
I should add that when I say trendy I just mean popular, not "chic" or fancy or anything. I don't care if they serve 100 different types of scotch or lit their shots on fire or whatever. I just want a popular place to chill where we can maybe talk to some strangers and shoot the shit

I'll be spending a little over a month in Seoul next month, what are the MUST DOS/SEES/EATS while I'm there? I'll be seeing the DMZ and Gyeongbokgung Palace for sure. I really want to hike along the city wall because it looks incredible. Outside of that, though, I haven't gotten around to planning much yet.
I'm trying to cram as much as possible into the month since it will be my first time leaving the US. Any advice about anything is appreciated. Thanks.
I've lived in Ghana for about 8 months now, yesterday I and some friends hiked up Wli falls, which are the highest in West Africa.
Sadly the night before I cleared a bottle of Jameson so I was well and truly hanging, so much so I was shaking like a shitting dog. Any way, managed to do the hike in about 2.5 hours whilst vomiting 3 times. Honestly every one, if you want to feel the same dehydration and sickness of our colonial ancestors I suggest you follow my footsteps, especially the drinking. Also wear Adidas Dragons, that'll especially fuck you. Any way, ask... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1115246 Yes and no, its the safest and most stereotypically West African country, so if W.Africa is on your bucket list do it. However make sure you have an exact list of what you want to do and keep your wits about you, don't ever let on you're a tourist.
I recently graduated from school and I'm on a gap year until January. I thought that this is a rare oppurtunity for me and I'm thinking of buying an interrail pass to travel around Europe for about a month. Since I've been to western/mid European countries (swe, ger, ita, sui, fr, spain etc.) multiple times before, I feel like heading towards Eastern Europe to explore the countries I've never been before and know very little about.
Many of my friends are busy studying, working or don't have enough money so I would be doing this... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Do people speak English well in Eastern Europe? I'd say as in the rest of European countries where English is not a native language. You can get by somehow.

Anyhow, I recommend to ditch interrail and take buses instead, they're so much cheaper, especially in the baltics and east-europe, but in the west there is cheap buslines too. You save heaps and maybe meet some more genuine travellers and locals besides from sharing a train with every other 18 year old european with the same idea as you, or even worse, 18 year old american kids going crazy because they're allowed to drink.

>>1115079 L.A.? Why? Go to San Francisco, see some national parks in NorCal (yosemite, redwoods), do Highway 1 (santa cruz, santa barbara, hearst castle area), wine country (sonoma if you're a NEET). MAYBE drive down to Anaheim if you really need to see Disneyland. If you go that far you might as well spend a couple days in San Diego/Coronado/La Jolla.
coiuple of days ago I was drunk and booked a cheap (250EUR) roundtrip Munich- Cuba with merideanair (flymerideanair.com )
Contrary to what usually happens, I didn't have to pay. So I booked, but didn't pay.
I received an email (all in German, as the booking process was) thanking me for my "binding" reservation.
Thing is, I don't really want to go.
I'm wondering whether I'd really need to pay or not now. Has anyone here had any experience with flymerideanair ? To me it's really something new - usually you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I pretty spontaneously booked a ticket to Costa Rica last night. I'll be flying into San Jose on May 31st and leaving on the 9th of June. It's a short span of time, and I'm wondering what I can and should do to make the most of it. What are some affordable in-country destinations and landmarks? What are the people there like?
I'm a 22-year old graduate student who also works full-time. I have money to spend but can't pull wads of cash out of my asshole. I know Costa Rica has a reputation for being expensive. I was recently in Colombia and lived in a third-world country for a while - I don't mind being a little uncomfortable.
What should I do? I've obviously been doing a little research online, but would like some feedback from folks who have recently been.
What I did. Stay at Costa Rica backpackers in San Jose best hostel there, may need to book ahead. Rente a car will be like 500 or cheaper i don't rem but the ppl at the hostel can hook u up. Drove to monteverde to see the cloud forest, chose over aranel cuz ppl said aranel is all tourists and there is a chance u can't see unless it's a great day. Went from there to puntereas, I did not spend any time tere nor do I recommend caught a ferry across and went to montezuma. At montezuma stayed at HOtel Lucy, 20 usd a night to sleep on the beach I'd... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Costa rica is great, safe and beautiful. The food is normal, i guess. Oh, and don' leave anything in the car when your not there. Bot even 2 minutes. They crack that shit open in 10 seconds, get your stuff and run.
Very broad question but I want to know what /trv/ would advise for a first time traveler. Planning a trip sometime after September-Nov for a few months and having trouble deciding. SEA is cheaper but I can afford to be flexible with time/budget
Particularly interested in the rainforest(either Borneo or the Amazon if you want to give your experience and opinions), ruins, interesting cultures, the usual. Would like to meet interesting people of course but not much of a bar/club person.
Tell me what you think or just share your own experience.
>>1113496 Your time of year for the travel is GREAT for this region.
As a first time traveler, I'd advise Costa Rica handsdown every time vs most of S. America. Rainforest canopy and cloud walks, great waterfalls and rafting, beaches, boating, volcanoes, coast to coast amazing, great eco-niche hotels who are very inexpensive yet luxurious both, and very english friendly. I'm quite partial to their Lizano steak sauce at every meal. You can hire your own damn guide one-on-one with a pack and gear (!) for a 3 part... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Have not been so SEA, but from the many stories I've heard compared to my own extensive experience in SA:
It seems like SEA is cheaper than SA in every way. Especially Brazil has gotten expensive as fuck. There is also a lot of bro-tier partying in SOME places in SEA, while others are a lot less touristy and accessible, might cause a bit of a culture-shock (which can be a good thing if you are looking to broaden your cultural horizons).
SA was to me a slight culture-shock, but not that much. In general Brazil, Chile and (especially) Argentina have some similarities... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys Kiwifag here staying in Seattle for a few days, and then San Fran for a few days after that in mid August. Traveling solo around a few places on my way to South America. Would really appreciate some tips on where I should stay, on a bit of a budget. Most likely will do AirBnb, but possibly hostels. Not a massive party guy at 30 years old, but will definitely be getting on tinder and trying to hook up. Any advice welcome, and thanks in advance!
Bay Area native here. That sounds like a cool trip! I haven't used Airbnb, but do you want recommendations for food, coffee, or other stuff like that? San Francisco and Mill Valley nearby have some great restruraunts cafés, and bakeries.
I wanted to try this out so I sent a reservation request and expected the host to either decline or accept my request, instead he/she asked me to change my request into an inquiry and telling that he/she is not sure if the apartment is free. I couldn't find anything on the google or airbnb help about making inquiries. Maybe I'll reserve a hotel instead then.
One of my travel dreams is to go to Colombia, but I really do fear guerrilla, and I don't know if it is safe to get around the country by road within the main cities (Bogota, Medellin, Cali, Cartagena, etc.). Also, hints, tips, must-see, etc. from Colombia
I spent about a month in Colombia, from mid-September to mid-August of 2015. I went there without any real knowledge or expectations of the country and ended up loving it. In fact, I'm very eager to see more of Latin America, a region which has never been on my travel radar.
Colombia isn't the safest place you could visit. However, the risk you run of getting kidnapped by rebels or shot dead in the streets is minuscule. The biggest threat to safety you'll face... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Don't worry, as long as you don't go to very far away from the tourism places. Don't do stupid things and try to hide your expensive things when you are in a very crowded place. If we talk about getting kidnapped I'm almost sure nothing will happen to you because here the people don't give a fuck if you are foreign or not, they just care about money so don't show it and that's all! PD: days ago some crazy motherfuckers killed a CIA agent, US taken them to a us court, They got their ass kicked. Since then nobody wants to bother foreign people... Comment too long.

I am also planning a visit to Columbia and I have an expensive travel bicycle that I want to take. If I lock it up, will people see it and take a wrench to it and disassemble all the parts they can get? It's not obviously top of the line, but I definitely have over $1500 in this bike.
Thinking about travelling through the Balkan region/south-eastern Europe for 2 or 3 weeks in august. Went to Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia 2 years ago which I really enjoyed. Would like to see some other countries this time though. I heard good stories about Bulgaria/Romania so this is very much an option but I'm open to any tips recommendations, really. Any tips on what I definitely should not miss? I'll be with a small group of guys in our early 20s. We do enjoy culture and scenery but there should definitely be some opportunities to...

My wife and 2 friends (a couple) are supposed to be heading to Russia (Moscow, Petersburg) in August for 10 days. However everyone other than myself are kinda nervous about their safety in Russia. They read all the reports of the Skinheads, Police, bydlo's and the general lack of english. I have tried to assure them that it really isnt THAT much difference than any other european city (My wife and myself have been to several) but they just cannot get it in their heads that its relatively safe.

I went to St Petersburg and Moscow for 10 days in April. You literally have nothing to worry about as long as you remain fairly central in the cities. We never went very far out so I can't tell you how dangerous it is in the dodgy areas but I doubt it's much more dangerous than any American ghetto. All the Russians we met were very friendly and helpful. St Petersburg is more European than Moscow, so people are more open minded and speaks better English. You definitely won't have any issues finding people speaking English, quite the opposite - they'll probably... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
