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...

6.Am I missing any places on my itinerary or are any of the places I am going a waste of time?

I have already been to Northern France, Great Britain, and Ireland. I would like to go again someday, but I am leaving them off the list for now so I can see new places.

7.Any other advice?

>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.

Why do you recommend Sardinia? I am assuming this would be a boat ride from either Nice or Rome?

What was the dot you added in Italy? Is it supposed to be Florence? Because that is what my other dot was supposed to be. May have been a little off placing my dots.

Does anyone here have experience with stealth camping?

Planning a motorcycle trip and motels would blow my budget. I'll probably stay at campgrounds if possible but I'd rather just find a wooded area to set a tent up for just a quick rest.

Currently looking into taking my kids to Disneyland Paris. youngest is 10 so now seems about the right time.

Bare in mind that the last time I went was when I was 18 in 1990. Anyone know when the cheapest time of year to go is? I was thinking October. Unfortunately, my google-fu fails me today.

Also, any advice for lodging?

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...

Is TSA pre-check worth it?

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...

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.

We don't mind taking the train out to other areas. We've got 2 weeks after all. Spending it all in Berlin seems like a waste.

This are good cities to visit. I'd also add Munich and Bremen.

If you're more into nature, give the Sächsische Schweiz or the Mecklenburg Lake District a try.

Stories about Curaçao would be really nice to hear as well.

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.

-Chinatown food tour
-Surgical Science Museum
-Barcade (undecided on location)
-Cheesie's Pub and Grub
-Obligatory Bean picture (pic related)

I'd recommend

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).

I'm going for a 40-day trip to SEA in August. 10 days in Laos then 30 in the Philippines.

Any ideas of what I have to give up on if I don't bring check-in luggage on this trip?

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.

another thing I probably won't be able to fit into carry-on is shoes, so I'll just have to get by with sandals.

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.

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.
