What’s up /trv/, I am an American guy in my mid-twenties. I am currently between jobs and recently moved out of my old place and back in with my parents; which could be a bad thing, but I am making the best of it. I have a decent amount of money saved up and I think I am going to go and spend 90 days travelling around Europe. I feel like I am at a pivotal point in my life and I have an opportunity to go do this now, I may not have this opportunity again for many years. This is a hair brained idea I just came up with and there will be a lot more planning before I go. Please... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1107911 >2.How much does it cost to stay in a hostel for a night? >I know this will hugely vary depending on where I am. Also would it be cheaper to find a hostel outside of a major city and take the train around or should I just find a place in the city? I don't think that you can find a lot of hostels out of the major cities. I found a nice hostel in Florence just for 9€/night.
HI guys im new here and id like to know witch country is the best for living because i dont like the country i live and i im planning to gtfo of here .So witch country u prefeer or if u have another best country to live
Gaslamp quarter son. Everyone knows this. /trv/ is a slow board nigger. I know it's hard for your nog brain to plan in advance, but post a few days earlier so that we can help your dumbass who can't run a google search.
>>1107691 Omg they opened that in 1990? I remember reading mickey mouse magazine at that time and going nuts on my parents that I want to go there when they had some articles about a new Disneyland in Paris...
I went there with my 7th grades a year ago, so I just remember: Lowest frequentation of the park is in the second half of september. They have zero discounts worth mentioning beside M-F on selected dates is about 15€ off.
Lodging: stay in the center of paris, Disneyland is just 30mins away by train... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Pre-check? I don't what that is. Do you mean TSA Pre®?
If you travel frequently in the U.S. you may consider it. While $85 for five years isn't that bad, the thought of giving the TSA more money doesn't appeal to me. For general traveling, I've never had to wait more than 30 minutes in the security line to get to my gate (though I don't keep track). You'd have to fly a lot for it to matter... My point is I never felt I needed something like this and it's more slated towards pompous rich folks who couldn't stand to be in a line... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Check out some of the neighborhoods between the financial district and midtown. People always spend way to much fucking time dicking around in midtown. Greenwich Village and shit like that are honestly must-sees for me. Especially considering within the next few years all the nice colonial-revival and historic architecture that gives the neighborhood its cool "bohemian" (if that's what you want to call it) vibe will probably be demolished and replaced by high-rise glass box luxury condos marketed to chinks and Russian oligarchs.
Going to Berlin in August for two weeks with my brother and girlfriend.
He's going there for a conference, and after that we're pretty much free to do whatever we want.
Since we're in Europe, we figured it would be a waste to just stay in Berlin, so we were wondering what other areas are near Berlin that we can reach via train or something and air bnb around? We're big on the food and nature aspects.
My brother was mentioning going to Amsterdam, but we need more ideas.
Any suggestions would be seriously considered as this is our... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I just moved from the US to a 2nd-tier French city for work. I moved into a town where I don't know anyone, and I don't speak any French.
How does /trv/ meet people when dropping into a new place completely foreign and completely alone? Or is this just the traveling lifestyle? I won't have the advantage of a hostel social scene since I'm actually living here and not just passing through.
In a few weeks I'll be taking a 4 day trip to Chicago with my girlfriend. What are some essential things to do/eat while there according to /trv/?
As an example of stuff we're into, some of the things we have planned so far include: -Chinatown food tour -Surgical Science Museum -Barcade (undecided on location) -Cheesie's Pub and Grub -Obligatory Bean picture (pic related)
>>1107305 I'd 100% look into the dining and night life scenes. We have tons of amazing restaurants for all different kinds of palates and bars with really unique atmospheres. I'd recommend some, but everyone has their own taste. A quick yelp search will give you a ton to look for.
I'd recommend -Checking out the Sear's (Willis) Tower sky deck. You can also have some drinks in the signature room for a great view. -See a game at Wrigley. Even if you don't like baseball, it's a great... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1107321 >You can also have some drinks in the signature room for a great view. Definitely essential and pretty romantic, and can be squeezed onto the tail end of any night, just ride the elevator, buy a cocktail and take some pictures (tell her the ladies bathroom view is possibly the best). Since you might be a foodie...Might enjoy the original brownie and a drink at the lovely tiffany decorated Palmer House, as well as their tour. http://www.lockwoodrestaurant.com/events/history-is-hott/ It's...

>>1107305 Food: If you're going to Chicaaago, you need to get a deep dish pizza. Look up Lou Malnati's.
And you need to get yourself a beef (a beef sandwich with that Giardiniera). Al's is pretty good for that.
Do not fuck this up, anon. It's important!
As for stuff to do. This anon >>1107321 is on point but I want to add that the science museum is not just good but in fact unmissable. They have a WW2 German U Boat and the space... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Some things to do in Pensacola including vising the National Museum of Naval Aviation (cool aeronautics museum with old war planes, simulators and IMAX documentaries), visiting the white, sandy beaches (traffic can be bad and there's a $1 toll) and visiting the Historic District, just to name a few. My personal favorite food downtown is McQuire's Irish Pub. They have great $10 burgers (I've never actually tried the Irish food but I have tried the 10 cent soup and... Comment too long.

I'm going for a 40-day trip to SEA in August. 10 days in Laos then 30 in the Philippines.
I can't decide whether to take check-in luggage or just a carry-on. I travel qutie a lot and always take carry-on only, so I know what's it about, but I don't remember going on such a long trip before so I don't really know.
Any ideas of what I have to give up on if I don't bring check-in luggage on this trip?
also, general Laos thread, as there's already one for the Flips.

>>1107112 Just take carry on, if you buy a bag at the size limit (never had to check mine in btw) you should have more than enough space, you can wash clothes as you go so you don't need many at all, and they're the biggest space stealer. All of the negatives so outweigh being able to take a few things you don't really need that it completely isn't worth it imo.
>>1107142 >another thing I probably won't be able to fit into carry-on is shoes,
Again I manage just fine, and this isn't some RealTraveller shit where I'm trying to prove how thrifty I am, because I really don't think that's the case, but in my 44L backpack for carry on I have space for shoes, everything else and then some left over.
Look i'll save you some time and maybe you'll delete your thread before it goes the same way it always does. Its basically impossible to do this if you live in the USA and one anon will claim he has done it and it was the best thing ever.
But remember, he is lying. Everyone telling you it can't be done are telling you the truth.
>>1107090 >Its basically impossible to do this if you live in the USA That is patently false, though. It is still fairly common. I'd be surprised if you ever got empty freight cars like that though. You'll be holding on to the open bars arranged at the end of a tanker or flat bed loaded with girders or some shit.
Also, trying to catch a running train is suicide. You need to learn their schedules so you can get on before it starts moving.
>>1107103 Not really. Trainhopping and finding out where you're going is easier than ever. The whole get caught go to jail is the only downside desu. >>1107095 Just got back from 6 days riding up to Oakland CA. :)
