Which city that you visited had the best public transit? Think reliability, affordability, aesthetics, number of different types (buses, trams/streetcars, subways), etc.

Seoul and Tokyo I think are extremely convenient and easy to use. I see some people sometimes say that they are confusing to use because those systems are so big, but honestly I think those people are retarded. Its literally just straight lines

As somebody from the UK, I thought Paris had surprisingly cheap public transport. However the metro is scary as shit sometimes
Tokyo can be confusing if you're trying to get there the fastest or for the least amount of money. LIterally everyone uses an app to determine that. But if you're a tourist and not concerned whether you get there 10 minutes earlier or if you spend an extra 150 yen its dumb easy. With very rare exceptions every single subway stop is reachable by at most 2 transfers. Its just find where you are, find where you're going and find the matching colors that come out of both.

Hey /trv/

How many of you have been to Toronto? Ive been a few times, but not since i was too young to explore on my own and truly get to know the city. Im incredibly keen on going back, the city has a feel to it that i cant really explain. What are some must sees, must do's, and general travel information about TO that I wont find elsewhere online? I need to hear it from you.

I lived in Toronto for 6 months. I liked the city just fine, the people were very friendly. Overall though I think the city was pretty boring. There's literally nothing unique about Toronto.

Lived in Toronto for almost 4 years. This guy doesn't have a clue.

There is lots to do in Toronto - look up Torontoist, BlogTO, etc for things from food festivals, concerts, good bars (Pravda is a fav of mine, old soviet styled bar with great vodka and decent prices).

Kensington Market is always good in spring/summer. The distillery district is a great time with patio bars and museums/niche stores.

If you want a younger crowd (and a more party scene) hang around UofT, the Annex, Bathhurst...

The soundtrack for the Orlando Bloom chick-flick "Elizabethtown" is full of good travel music for the road, as much of the movie is thoughtful and deep shots of driving down the road.

Not recommending the movie, really, just the music.

a quick look at AirAsia, a round trip from MNL to BKK would cost 250 USD in mid June
That seems oddly expensive for Air Asia
Going with daddy, Cebu Pacific costs only about 400$.

>I don't think things can get even more dangerous unless we meet in some developing country
>Most likely we will meet in a public area with a lot of tourists and passers by in Madrid and I will meet him with my peers (i.e. not alone)

1. Is this very dangerous? How to stay safe? Intuitively-speaking, I know that nothing bad will happen if we meet in a public area as a group, but I can't help but feel somewhat uncomfortable with this idea. Everyone in my group is a girl - I would feel somewhat safer if there was a guy or two in our group. I don't wanna be killed in Europe.

2. Should I tell the other girls who are travelling with me that he is an online friend? I don't want them to be scared and I don't want them to try to kick me out of their group because they see this as dangerous.

3. Should I tell my parents about this? I get the sense that they will not like this (every parent had a strict no-online-friends rule for their younger kids). I posted about this issue on a forum with an older target audience and someone replied how I should stay safe by only meeting my online friend online. Many people liked that post. My parents are also if a very bad mood and they've recently been talking about divorce - the last thing they want to hear is their daughter meeting some online friend in Spain.
I'm a dude, but IME Spanish guys can be a little aggressive/touchy feely, but not rapey, and not even willing to put in a a whole lot of effort in general. Maybe it's the culture, siestas, or prostitution.
How old are you?

Are you sure he is real, have you interacted with him via webcam, etc?

It's fine if you meet at a public place, it's Spain, not El Salvador or something. You meet him, you see if he's okay, you leave with your friends. If you don't feel comfortable being alone with him then don't, it's a matter of common sense, really.
Depending on your age I don't think telling your parents there's "a guy you've met online" is important, unless you decide to go out with him alone or something, and even then you don't need to mention the online part to get them more worried than they should be. And of course you should tell your friends.
Of course this applies only if you're sure the guy is real. This seems common sense to me, but I'm a guy and never really had to worry about things like that, but if you're a girl, especially under 18 (hypothetically speaking because you can't be here if you're under 18) and you met a guy online...of course it can be something you don't expect.
Just use your head and be with your friends when you meet him.

Tomorrow I'll leave for Bergen, Norway /trv/. It's just for 4 days but how much should I expect to spend on food every day (in euros). Seems like everything is ridiculously expensive for no reason.
6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
It's quite expensive. If you want a full meal for breakfast lunch and dinner then you're looking at about 150kr a meal at the minimum if you go somewhere. If you want a little more as to not starve you're definitely looking at something like 225-250kr a meal at a better place.

lot of people pack lunch here. the brown bag tradition thing.
k, thx nordiske anon
Lived in Bergen for 10 years.

What he said is right. If you go to fast food like BK and McD its around 10-15 Euros a meal.

Pack lunch at home/hotel if you want to save money on eating.

not a lot going in the way of traditional irish food, mostly potatoes, stew, colcannon.

>How not to look like a completely retarded burger fag
keep trap shut. Nobody wants your opinion on your heritage or Irish politics
Try to avoid Dublin, it's very expensive and fully of scumbags(chavs).

A visit to Moyross Estate in Co. Limerick is a must visit, beautiful place. And it's free.

Enjoy your stay.
If I was taking my grandmother on a trip there, here's what I would do if I had 6-10 days...
Book my flights to fly into Dublin, Fly out of Shannon. (use Delta)
Spend 1.5 days in Dublin then pick up a rental car (something high enough to see over hedges to keep grandma calm from the near head-on collisions on blind curves) and do the drive vacation for the Southern half of the country.
In Dublin, I'd do the cathedral visits, Guinness Tour, live music or literary pub stop or two, see the Book of Kells.

What's the best way to learn a language without classes? I speak Spanish, English and German, but I picked them all up when I was a kid.

I've always DETESTED school, and I've always been more of an autodidact. How does an adult go about it? I want to learn French, and possibly Russian.

I'll check that out man, thanks!
The library, actually. Check out a set of audio language CD's, rip them to your computer, put the files on your phone, and listen to them when you're driving or whatever. I'm learning Spanish right now. Another thing I did, I changed the language on my PS4 to spanish. I play a lot of Battlefront and I can play that game no matter what language is on the screen. I've picked up tons of words that way. I also use spanish at the ATM, or at the grocery store self-check.

Germany is very "trailer Campy" friendly. If you want an authentic old town experience why not visit Celle. You will see only a handful of tourists no more than that. If the weather is great why ot travel to the nice islands in Northern Netherlands
Why do you exclude Scandinavia?
I would recommend this thread:
It's world wide but also has other pretty good recommendations in europe within your driving distance that are mostly nature and old towns/villages related plus you won't find many tourists there.

Anyway my two cents:
September can be tricky as you might experience the first snow in the alps/pre alps regions and storms around the eastern and northern sea cost if you're unlucky.

Anyone on /trv/ use Google Translate consistently? I just started using it and the text replacement feature is absolute fucking voodoo, it's the first thing I've seen in a long time that made me realize we're living in the future.

I'm definitely going to use it when I visit smaller cities in Europe. Will people think I'm weird asking them to speak into my phone?

Decent enough as a dictionary and somewhat reliable for short sentenced with very simple grammar, but it's not reliable beyond that.
I don't understand. The right picture is just as unintelligible as the left; I don't speak google-fu.
Used it all over Europe and North Africa. Better than nothing, but still pretty bad. In places like Poland when I tried t use it they just look at you like your straight up retarded. Also in some small villages people couldent read, so the GT was useless.

If you had unlimited money, but were limited to existing science and technology where in space would you visit?

I'd visit Tsiolkovskiy on the far side of Luna.

Cheap, especially when you have some luggage (airlines have pretty much stopped giving any luggage allowance)

Next week I'm going to Heidelberg for 4 days with my girlfriend to visit a common friend.

Interested in nature, gastronomy and art mainly, open to anything though.

>freedom to go to Berlin

Have you checked a map?

But do check out the castle, it's nice. Heidelberg is very beautiful, and you could easily spend 4 days there even though it's small.
Yes I guess you are right, I should give up that option. Still, I need a way to get to nice hiking places, right?
The Hauptstrasse downtown is really fucking cool, if you're into shopping. Lots of modern shops all built into the old style buildings. The bridge and the castle are all right there too. The castle is nice, and gives you a great view of the city. There are also boat tours you can get down the river, where you stop and can explore several other smaller castles. There's also a Zoo across the river in Handschusheim. Downtown Heidelberg in general is just really fucking neat.

If you're into cars,...

I'm on a RTW trip, currently thinking about heading to South America in July to learn Spanish for 1-2 months. I took a couple years of Spanish in HS and haven't used it since, so I want to learn enough to hold conversations in my travels around S America. Where would you recommend doing this?

While I'm learning I'd like to hang out with the local girls at night, so somewhere where they love gringos would be best.
