Anyone here have any experiences with different national parks in the US and Canada?? Which ones are so exquisitely breathtaking that they're worth traveling across the country for? Which ones are just kind of mediocre? The only one I've been to is Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and it doesn't really seem like much compared to the photos of the other national parks I've seen.
>>1114537 Hrm, might need to change your question as to what about it that constitutes a national park appeals to you, because they all had a purpose at the time of their creation...whether some kind of set aside wilderness to protect some natural wonders and species, soaring peaks vs mediocre hills, huge waterfalls....it quite varies. After all, Biscayne national park is to protect a reef and some mangroves, and you need a boat to visit. and the Everglades have a few access points and pretty amazing or pretty boring, depends...

Hi /trv/, I'm in year 11 and am going on a 10 month student exchange to Japan in August. My host school is in Kyoto and my home stay will most likely be located around that area. My Japanese is only basic (probably JLPT N5). Any advice or pointers, things to do, etc? Would be much appreciated, thanks.
>>1114401 N5 can be passed within a month of studying Japanese most days. Its ridiculously basic. Make sure you take Japanese classes while there and spend as much time away from other foreigners as you can stand to help improve your Japanese.
I just got to know that my workplace is sending me to Malta, where I'll spend 3 months, September-October-November and will work in a full-time job in La Valletta. However my work can't even suggest me an accomodation, and even if it could I'd still would like to get all kinda info about this country. So please if you know anything share it, if you can suggest something it's even better. I've got about 1000 eur a month for everything so have to keep it cheap.
I have detailed knowledge of the area and I can answer any question you might have. I can also help you find suitable accomodation in a good area, or steer you in the right direction on things like hiring a car.
If you want my help, post a throwaway and I will get back to you.
So a friend of mine met a chick after moving to Argentina like 2 months ago and is now getting married. He invited me to the wedding. I'm considering going, as I have a few months off this summer, but flights are fucking expensive from North America. So I need some feedback.
Argentina: Yea or nay? How long to stay? Are there other places nearby that are cheap/easily reachable?
I'm assuming you'll come to Buenos Aires (Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires), so... you should start looking for motels at Microcentro, you can find some good affordable places there (from the most cheap shitholes to fucking expensive ones). Pretty much everything is around that area (bus, subway, taxi, restaurants, party hard, etc). Also I suggest to use a Payoneer prepaid card just in case, it's useful.
Me and my friend are planning a trip to Vietnam and Laos on motorbikes. We're planning to buy them in HCMC and sell them in Vientiane. I read it's possible to cross border from VN to Laos somewhere in the north.
Does anyone have any experience with it? How expensive it is to get the papers? How difficult is to sell the bike in Vientiane? Isn't it easier in some other city in Laos? How much time do you think is enough for the trip? Three weeks, four weeks? Any tips for must sees on the way?
We also want to visit Hang Sơn Đoòng... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I bought a bike in Hanoi and rode down to HCMC, buying it is relatively easy, it's selling it that can get awkward. Officially you need a licence to be able to buy a bike and get it properly registered but what a lot of people do is just laminate the bike reg form and just pass that on with the sale of the bike. This is your documentation and everyone I've met said if they got stopped by the police they showed them this form and didn't get into any trouble (sometimes they will keep asking you for documents, just keep showing them the form saying THIS is it),...

>>1114642 Is it enough? No. Should you go? Yes. You won't see everything but that would take a good few months, pick a region (north/south of somewhere) and do that, don't rush it and try to see everything or you'll never really experience it. My personal recommendation would be north Vietnam, Hanoi City, Ha Long Bay, Sapa, lots of places to explore in 2 weeks and it's not too touristy.
I've known this one guy off and on for 6 years via various console's onlines and pc, played 1000s of hours with him, voice chatted, vidoe chatted. I got fuck all to do this summer besides a two planned trips with family to two different parts of the US, I have a car, have plenty of money for gas.
He plans on going to Colorado in like July or August to meet another guy we have known for way less time, apparently he was gonna go anyways even if not for that.
Is this a recipe for getting shanked or could it be alright?
Planning a trip to Europe in month or so. I plan on flying into Ireland and then traveling to London and a few other places. Would I be better off flying from Ireland to London or is a ferry a better way of getting there? Also,I'm really having trouble with understanding the eurail system. I use the app and there is no legend for any of the icons and Its making it hard to plan. Any suggestions?
Hey /trv/. I'm taking my girlfriend to Disneyland next week. She's never been, and I haven't been in 10+ years. What are all the "MUST DO"s of the park? Any resturants we have to go to? Rides that are absolute musts? Fun bits of trivia? Hidden Mickey's? Etc etc etc. The only thing we have planned is a Blue Bayou reservation one night, and currently have Disneyland only passes--But may upgrade to parkhopper once we're there. What's the best way to break in a Disney Virgin? Thanks~
>>1114195 I took a friend there a few months back for the first time in over ten years. Because of this, we ended up playing it by ear for the most part and hit whatever interested him at the time. I currently recommend the Haunted Mansion, if only to see the effects on the Hatbox Ghost up close. (Definitely worth it IMO). Beyond that, it's all up to whatever interests you both. The 'Mountain' rides are always worth it if you're into thrills, though I recommend a Fast Pass for Space Mountain due to large... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got a summer internship and I need to decide which state to go to.
I would go to specifically either Zanesville Ohio or Bozeman Montana. If any of you have lived or traveled there I want to know what you think. I've done reasearch on both places, so I mostly want to know what the people are like.
i visited a friend out there and it seems pretty legit. He's always out biking/fishing/doing outdoors shit. Culturally I imagine it's different from most of Montana because it's a college town. There are plenty of young people and places to eat.
Plus glacier national park is nearby and that place is awe inspiring
I'm going to visit the USA for the 1st time of my life, probably the west coast... What do you think ?
I'm wondering if the west coast is actually the best choice ?
What are the activities for a 28 yo guy in shape and open minded who likes having fun, sports and cultural shits as well.
Pretty scared because I'll be going alone and well I don't know If I'll be abble to meet and actually interract with people and make friends... Any advices? (I'm from Paris, I hope it's more friendly in the US :D)
For... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Really depends on your interest. The only time I would recommend a first timer to the west coast is if they're really interested in nature and outdoors stuff. If you're just looking to party and city hop, the east cost (specifically the Northeast) is your best option.
I got surprised with a plane ticket for my birthday. Problem is the day I return is when i'm supposed to start my new job. The flight was booked 2months and the airline wants to charge me $200 to let me leave a day early. Any advice on how to avoid or lower this fee?
>>1114039 I know of no way to do that -- I have obviously not flown every airline, and have not had to make changes to the ticket with all of those I've flown with, but they seem to really, really want to discourage you from making changes (or maybe just to get money when you do.)
So sorry, you may be out the money if you have to make the change.
Though, if it works better for you, they might charge the same thing to just postpone and go another time (within a year) when you will have enough time to not leave... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've always had an idealised image of the 'white picket fence' suburban lifestyle, of conservative middle-class families living in close communities, with a couple of kids and a dog. Cheerful housewife, pancakes and apple pie type stuff. This may seem oddly specific, but I'm sure most of you will be familiar with the concept.
How accurate is it in America? Do these communities exist, and if so, what states are they most likely to be found?
>>1113991 There's always going to be those niche communities, doesn't matter where in the states. Suburban lifestyle exists, which is more or less a glorified hell, and the majority of the suburbans barely cook or bake in the first place, much less have time to.
Stick to smaller towns if you want peaceful living, less stereotypes but more conservativeness there
>>1113991 In my opinion, suburbs are no longer the place to look for the classic "white picket fence" America I think you are describing. Suburbia now is more into cookie-cutter over-sized homes on too-small lots, with no soul.
Look in smaller towns what you are looking for still exists there.
Just graduated from university, as a gift my father is buying me a plane ticket to Germany. I chose Germany because it's fairly central in Europe and I think I can go other places easily from there, plus there are some places in Germany I want to see.
The places I really am keen on are Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Maybe Ireland and Denmark as well.
So basically traveling alone doesn't scare me in the slightest (major autist, never really had friends) but I have absolutely no idea what to do in these countries. Beyond hiking through fjords my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1113910 Sorry, I have no clue what you mean by meme destinations. Is that a good or bad thing?
I'm assuming I would need a facebook account to use tinder (which I don't have). I really dislike social media, don't have any accounts on any of the big ones (facebook, twitter, ig, tumblr, etc) so that kind of rules that out.
Reassuring to know lots of people speak English in Sweden at least
hmm that's one of the more boring areas of downtown budapest, you'll spend more time around deák, oktogon, nyugati, etc i guess.
around the square it's nice to go for a morning run, you have the széchenyi spa there, which is nice... the museum of fine art is under construction for the next few years, but you still have műcsarnok open ("art hall") on the right side of the square. there used to be a nice café at the back of it, idk if it's still open or not. museum of transport (and agriculture) are close by as well if you get really...

>>1114720 cont'd they also sell sushi which is kinda meh (you won't really find good sushi anywhere in town), but their korean dishes are really good.
budapest is a good place for pork/chicken/turkey lovers. mangalica is a local type of pork, try it once so that you can say you had it. forget about any sort of seafood, though. some people ignore the fact that hungary is landlocked and try and get their salmon and caviar there... well it is possible to get any sort of seafood, but it will not look appetizing,...
