This may not be the right place to ask this, but do you guys know of anywhere in the Middle East that would be good (and cheap) to learn Arabic?

I was looking at the Eton Institute in Dubai, as it's not too expensive and seems pretty good. Dubai doesn't seem like a very fun place to spend a few weeks though... I mean like organised programs rather than just living out there in a hostel or something as I'd probably just end up speaking English the whole time.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to word this question

Basically, I'm wondering which large cities are liked by a high percentage of people who travel and live there. It seems like even top destinations (including but not limited to London, Paris, Tokyo, NYC, Hong Kong, Chicago, Toronto) have a long list of people who dislike them. If you mention you're travelling to one of those cities you will almost certainly find people who say "It's overrated" or "I didn't care for it". However, I rarely hear a bad word about Prague...

>and also, which city seems to always get a ton of unjustified flak?

I was really pleasantly surprised by my visit to Cleveland a few years back. I went there for a wedding and while I wouldn't make a point of visiting it just for tourism, if you're going there anyway for whatever reason checking out the city is really fun.

Which docs/films about traveling does /trv/ recommend?

I recently watched A Map for Saturday which was very well done

I'd love to but the roll on my bike is very inefficient since it's cheap so you need to be constantly putting more energy in than is actually needed. Tried oiling but it only works for a short while.

Otherwise I've been thinking about just biking to another country, maybe some ones next to those but it's pretty lengthy if I get tired after like 60km a day.

Are your legs super strong?

what setup are you using? my bike just got stolen so I was thinking of saving up for a surly LHT.

So after a very unfortunate turn of plans resulting in missing Bonnaroo this year, I now have an excess of money saved up and an intense need to get out of the South. I live in North MS and I'm taking the next year off before I go off to a major university, so I've been loosely planning on road tripping to the west coast, but I'm having a little bit of a difficulty planning out the places I definitely should hit on the way there.

What are some recommendations of places I definitely should see? What places out west are completely overrated in your opinion?

Hit some other festivals. Look into wayhome, its in canada bit the same people who organize bonnaroo run that as well. Itll be the 2nd year for that fest.

Just sayin, since i went to roo solo this year and had one of the best times of my entire life.

any experiences with Alanya? I'm sort of...going there with my family and I'm not sure if the islamic doctrine is strong there. I've seen videos with bars and nightclubs but I'm still unsure how to approach the destination by attitude...

I went there three times with my family. Having never been abroad elsewhere it was cool then (I was 12-15 I think).

Not sure what to tell you exactly. The beach on the right side of the castle or whatever was better iirc. Prepare to die in the heat.
>>
>>1136455
Antalya (100km further West) is a bit better but nevertheless the experience wil lbe similar. The islamic doctirne is almost non existent for tourists and they are quite used to tourists so you must not be scared about any behavoir tabus.

As a turk, i can only say that lt is the best part of the turkey right now. There arent any islamic shit. You can do whatever you want without any problem. The weather is may little b a problem but it is ok you will get used to it.

Not sure where you are from but the US has a lot of opportunities working seasonally in beautiful places that provide housing. Lodges, camp stores, ski resorts. Pretty much any national or state park you can think of has them. The work sucks of course but the days off make it worth it. I know even NZ has the same opportunities. Would definitely recommend.

Where did you camp, and was it free camp or paid? Why did you select this route? How horrible were the great plains? How many hours a day did you drive? What gear did you use? What did you eat?

My impression is you didn't plan the route based on cool shit, just the shortest road.

Hi /trv/, in 2 weeks time i will be in Milano and from there i will travel to Venice. Anyway, i figured that this is my chance to see the St Johann Church in the dolomites. (pic related) It has been on my bucket list for very long and i really want to go.
I have done some research about how to get there but it has not yet made me much smarter so i am asking /trv/:
How the fuck do you get here by public transport?
Like, what town should i be based in? Bolzano? Can you take a local bus out there?

nevermind, found it. It's the one near Vilnöß?
There is train station/stop called "Villnösser Haltestelle" between Bozen and Brixen, but I can find a railway connection to it.
Its only 10km from Brixen (but with mountains in between!), so, try to hike there? The landscape is way to fantastic to only go around by car.
