I'm a Canadian about to travel to the USA by car in a few weeks.
I'm going from Alberta through Idaho, and going to end up in Portland for a week vacation.

Last year I was arrested(bench warrant) because I didn't pay my "driving without insurance" fine, my friends came and paid it and I was in and out in 8 hours.

I have zero criminal record, but I was still technically "arrested".

Will this be a problem when I cross the border?

What do I say when they ask me if I've ever been arrested?

Also, if you...

>What do I say when they ask me if I've ever been arrested?

You say yes. Both countries share criminal record data. They will know if you are lying, and it will probably result in you being banned from entering the US for many years

>Will this be a problem when I cross the border?

Highly doubtful

>Also, if you get refused entry, how can you get into the united states?

Do you not know what the word "refused" means? If they don't let you in, they don't let you in.

I dunno, my best friend has been arrested dozens of times for graffiti in Canada and when we were asked the question at the border crossing he lied and we were fine.

Hey everyone
Planning a trip for uni holidays to ride from Sydney to Adelaide, stopping in at Melbourne on the way through.
Going with two mates and planning on bush camping most of the way and then staying in hostels at the big cities.
Any experiences or advice would be great to hear.
Also if there are any good places to drop into on the way.
Got a max of 2-3 weeks to be gone from Sydney.

Also recommend hugging the coast as much as possible, the highways are quite boring. Wilson's Prom has some cool spots, the Great Ocean Road (south west of Melbourne) will be empty and has fantastic roads, and a lot of smaller towns to drop in to.

I've got a bunch of airline miles and vacation time and I want to travel abroad for the first time. Nicaragua seems to be a good place. Cheap, relatively low crime, interesting cultural and diverse natural sites to see.

Can anybody tell me places to definitely go/definitely not go? Managua seems to be somewhat sketchy and otherwise not appealing and I should only go there to and from the airport. Corn Island and Ometepe sound interesting, but I don't know if its worth it to travel there. I figured if I land in Managua, I'd go to Esteli and then circle down...

I will be traveling to SE Asia in July; Thailand, Laos and possibly Vietnam.

I have never traveled properly before so need a run down of the basics, stuff that people have had to learn the hard way.

Firstly, what is the deal with luggage? What do I put in my carry on and what is the best thing to use for my check in, should I just get a big 70L+ backpack considering I will be moving around a lot?

How should I work out my money when Ill be visiting a bunch of different countries and don't have USD, should I just take my native currency (AUD) and convert...

First and foremost:
-Check visa requirements.
-Check vaccination requirements.

Luggage.
Carry on bag: The basic stuff you'd need to survive decently (a change of clothes, your documents and money is the least).
Check-in bag: Everything else
Big backpack or not?
Depends on a few factors.
How long you're going to walk with it? Carrying a full 70L backpack is tough and it's not recommended to carry more than 10% of your weight on your back (unless you're a /fit/ trainer).
Also, a 70L backpack must be checked in, you won't...

Get vaccinations and visas, that's the first step. Don't just stick to the requirements to the letter with vaccines, some diseases are common and unpleasant enough to warrant getting them out of your own free will. Malaria prophylaxis too - most importantly bite prevention, pills are up for debate.
Get a backpack if you'll be moving a lot, it's better than a suitcase for that, especially if you won't be renting a car.
Money - personal preference, but I like having cold, hard cash. I keep...

You will almost certainly need a visa before you arrive in Vietnam, check for the other places.

Hey

Me and a friend are staying in Amsterdam between the 16th-19th this month, and were wondering what people's experiences with hostels were?

We're looking for something more fun/lively, last time I went a few years ago I stayed at the Flying Pig downtown but they're booked to fuck for now so looking for other options,

Going to Moraine Lake for a week in June. Luckily I've got the benefit of staying at the lodge so I'll get early mornings and evenings without tourists. I know the obvious recommendations of visiting Lake Louise and the Banff Gondola/Upper Hot Springs but do you guys have any other suggestions? Gonna be a lot of hiking mainly but I'm also planning on going to Jasper for a day or two. Specific places to hit that don't get too touristy? Foods I have to try? Should I go overboard with bear proof containers for snacks?

I would recommend the Ostel, it is cheap, clean and close to public transportation. It is a a German-Democratic-Republic-Themed Place, witch is kinda weird but good enough for a solid bed and a good night sleep.

Go to Kyoto, it is touristy but it's worth your time if you like architecture. Nagoya is basically little tokyo. Akita is nice as well, not a lot to do but the scenery is fantastic.

It really depends what you want to get out of your trip. Culture? Food? Nightlife?

Hes not really comedy but BennyHBK is pretty much completely unknown and makes fairly good travel videos.

If you want something more mainstream that has travel in it I would definitely check out Casey Neistat's channel (yes I know he doesn't focus on travel he just happens to travel some so he has made some good travel videos)

Also you might like the High on Life youtube channel if you don't already know about it (again not exactly comedy but they make pretty good videos even though some are hit and miss)

'Sup nerds, your resident Bulgarian here to recommend you to visit the country and answer questions you might have about it. As with the previous thread, I'll try and respond with an image I've taken myself so you can see some non-meme stuff that locals will do and are worth seeing/doing. To those that have previously visited, please share your experiences.

Country in general:
Pros:
>4 distinct seasons, activities for each one
Beaches, Ski, Mountain Tourism, Architectural tourism, ATV/Horseback riding/etc

>Cheap af
0.35EUR (0,40USD) for 500ml water bottle
0.5EUR (0.60USD) loaf of bread (1kg)
12.07EUR (13.76USD) cross-country train (bus is faster and almost the same)

>Civilized and peaceful, guaranteed
Tfw no civil war or ethnic conflicts (Serbia all the time)
Tfw no government censorship or explosions every 2 seconds (Turkey)
Tfw no refugees cuz very secure borders and the accepted refugees are only in the displacement centers anyway

>Still in Europe (and EU, so EZ mode with regards to border)
With RyanAir or WizzAir it will cost you more to travel within England than to spend a weekend in Bulgaria.

Cons:
>Shitty administration for citizens
Baggage from the soviet years

>Shitty roads for sure
The conditions of the asphalt roads aren't acceptable in 2016, especially when we pay such taxes on them

>Parking on the pedestrian sidewalks
Soviets artificially restricted the amount of cars built, so roads and parking were plentiful 20 years ago. Not now.

Cont. with some city and location reviews.

Sofia, capital city and where I live
Pros:
>Architecture
Thracian earliest recorded settlements, Roman (Byzantines), Bulgarian, Ottoman, Soviet buildings can be seen, touched and entered to this day. The city's architecture is like a ring, oldest in the middle and younger as you leave the center. Pieces of Byzantine/Bulgarian fortresses are in the middle, Tzarist architecture (1876-1944) inhabits most of the city's center stepping out to brutalist soviet living quarters in the outskirts.
