Hey /trv

My girlfriend and I are traveling around Israel. We're traveling without a plan, but find it rather hard to escape the touristy areas of Jerusalem etc.
Now we've decided to rent a car, but we're still open for suggestions on where to go.

What are the places to see and things to do in Israel?

So far we've considered: Golan heights, some parts of Palestine, Negev desert and The Dead Sea.

You probably won't be able to take the rented car to the Palestinian side.

Hi, Israeli here

You shouldn't skip Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Acre. Bare in mind that parking inside Tel-Aviv can be pretty expensive (about 5$ an hour) so you should park it in your hotel (which I assume you'll be at since you're renting a car) and using public transport which is pretty good. Just notice that it pretty much shuts downs from Friday evening to Sunday morning.

I don't think there's going to be much problem for you to go to the west bank, but there are several areas, especially...

Dead Sea is incredible and climbing massage while the sun rises was great. Of the time I spent in Israel that was the most worthwhile experiences. Jerusalem was cool but had scam prices and was a bit uncomfortable. Tel-Aviv was just a city.

Hi /trv/,

I want to know about the best place you have ever been. I am not talking about a country or a city, just a specific place. Maybe a beach in scotland, maybe a restaurant in miami.

Just some place that made you feel fantastic.

I worked in South Dakota last summer and that was probably my favorite place. Small town in the middle of no where was fantastic. Even more specific was the open gun Range outside of the town. In the middle of the night I would go out there and just lay down and look at the stars. Still one my favorite memories.

Not to be too RealTraveler (TM),/old fucker, but my favorite places are mostly spots in Thailand from when I lived there as a young person, starting in the late 1980s. Nong Khai, on the Mekhong/Lao border, when NE Thailand got few tourists and Laos got none, will always be magical to me. Nong Khai is still charming, in my opinion, dreadlocked Israelis in Singha or Beerlao wife beaters notwithstanding.

Hey /trv/.
I am from Sinagpore and I will soon move to Canada to study abroad. I am worried about not fitting in and ending up as one of those people who feel really homesick. I guess this should be an eye-opening experience for me, but I don't know if I will end up like those Chinese immigrants who only mingle with other Asian people and do not really have local friends.
How to fit in? Will partying and drinking help me fit into Western culture? I don't want to be one of those Chinese people who does not fit in into the local culture.

Make a conscious effort not to socialize with other Chinese students, or Chinese locals. I know this takes you out of your comfort zone -- a big thing when in a new, strange place -- but it's essential if you want to meet non-Chinese people. Not all of these locals, or even many of them, are big partiers and drinkers, so you also need to put your prejudices and preconceptions aside. You're from Singapore, so your English is OK -- talk to people, other students, etc., join clubs, participate in sports, in...

I'm a Canadian who just recently studied abroad in Singapore, and I can say that you'll notice a huge difference in how people think about drinking and partying (as you sort of alluded to). Don't feel pressured to turn into a borderline alcoholic like plenty of the local kids, but also don't be afraid to have a drink every now and then. A lot of people here like going out for a few drinks, or having friends over to play drinking games and this is how a lot of people bond with one another/have a good time.That being said, there will still be a good chunk of...

Me and 3 friends are gonna spend New Years in Las Vegas.

Its our first time going to Las Vegas.

Any tips what to do?
What should we avoid?
What should we do on New Years Eve? Strip, Bar Hopping or Club?

We would like to get the most bang for our buck in this trip. Especially we would like to avoid traps that would drain ou money.

Just cancel if you aren't willing to shell out a few thousand at least.

Considering going to the Azores this year. What islands should I include or exclude from the trip and how easy is it to get from island to island? Also, how much does it cost to hop from island to island by either boat or plane?

Not OP, but what is the internet like there? Would it be a good place to be a digital nomad for a bit? Is it a good place to pick up some Portuguese or is the accent too different?
>>
>>1129736
Internet in my home is surprisingly good and you can find it available free at most cafes. Keep in mind that that may vary depending on the Island. Sao Miguel, Terceira and Sao Jorge probably best, the rest of the islands are small and may not be as good.

You will certainly pick up some Portuguese but from island to island dialect will be noticable. I tried Rosetta stone Brazilian and it didnt help much. Im learning on the fly.

Find the closest trappist monastery next to you and drink really good beer. Maybe Westmalle, not too far from Antwerp.

Would pick Brussels over Luxembourg.

do everyone always need travel insurance? Am I dumb for asking? I'm thinking of going to S.E. asia without it. Here's why:
1. I'm not taking anything valuable.
2. I have a credit card that has a $10000 limit
3. The only situation that I can think of when it would actually be useful is when I have a nasty accident and the hospital costs more than $1000
4. Even if I get insurance there's no guarantee they'll pay out if i need it.

Thoughts?

Only reason I'd get it for SEA is if I were going to do a lot of motorbike riding, since the roads are so bad.
I've never bought travel insurance in my life, and the people who consider it indispensable really irk me.

>>1136087
Motorbiking is illegal for foreigners everywhere you go in SEA, so if you injure yourself while using one there is a 0% chance that your travel insurance will cover the expenses.

owning one is illegal. If you rent one how the fuck is that illegal.

Alright anon I have a question for you regarding lodging and food while sailing the Caribbean.

Backstory: Sailed for the last 2 years as a foredeck hand, and after moving to good old atlanta, I find myself wanting to get back on the water. I'm 90% sure I convinced my old captain and one of my old crewmates to come to the Caribbean with me next year and Sail from Trinidad to Miami. I'm also taking 2 family members and a friend who have no sailing experience (yay! We get to see if they get seasick.)

Can't really answer that, other than to suggest Googling lodging on the islands you plan to hit and building that part of the budget that way.

I do like the chandler's store at Soper's Hole in BVI, though. FWIW.

Firstly ask yourself why you are doing it. If the only reason is for the videos to get as many viewers as possible then stop. You really can tell when people are making videos in the hopes of hitting it big because funnily enough they are the worst videos. You need to plan what you want to create and you need to enjoy what you are doing. Find a style that you like, the competition on YouTube essentially means that if your video doesn't include original ideas perfectly executed then next to no one will see it. You really haven't given any information about what kind...
