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... Comment too long.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1113415 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...

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?
>>1113255 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. /www DOT ostel DOT eu/en/index.html My Wife Loved it, too.
This fucking rain bleh Currently in Osaka with 11 days left to travel wherever but it looks like its raining all over the country for the next week or more :( I wouldnt mind if I was by myself and could just sit in an arcade all day, but women be shoppiiiiiiiiiing etc

>>1111730 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.
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.

>>1111726 >Sofia is also the place where a mosque, an orthodox church and a Jewish temple are the closest to each other (within RPG range) on the Balkans, but we're cool
>Safe Recently I was giving a tour for a friend visiting from Argentina. We were out until 3 in the morning and coming back to my place, we saw many women just walking around, either home from bars or walking their dog at absurd hours. I do most of my shopping at 4 in the morning and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello, guys. I'm going to europe for the first time, with my 2 uncles and doing a touristy route (paris, london, berlin, praga, budapest). If I was funding the trip, I wouldn't do this, but w/e not my choice.
HOWEVER, I have 2 extra weeks to go wherever I want to after that. My interests are : -people, culture -interesting shit
I don't care much about monuments, etc, but seeing huge things or great nature might be nice.
I thought about Russia (to get to know that crazy place) or Sweden (to see if they are really as cucked as /pol/... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
