As I'm sure you know, you can find all-inclusive package vacations (flight included) for under $1000 easily in Cuba. Probably shouldn't expect much though. Shit food, a pervading feeling of 'fake' everywhere. Dominican Republic is equally popular for sun'n'sand vacations.

Jamaica is a little more interesting for independent travel (violent crime is concentrated in Kingston...

Short, but sweet. Keep it up, and check out the Japan general thread, I'm sure you'll be able to help and find more interest in your videos there.

Some advice on your English: Try to read pronounce sentence as an actual sentence, usually in one breath (basically, a comma = take a new breath and speak again) and not word-by-word.

Cheers.

Nice video! I suggest to just continue making videos and your english will improve.

Also, Japan seems like a very beautiful country I must visit once in my life.

Not bad.

Google "youglish". It will help you a lot with pronunciation.

Hey /trv/, spring break is next week and I want to travel. I have 6k saved up and I have the option to either go to NY where relatives will pay for about half my trip but I've already been there or to new Orleans which I have never seen but ill be paying the full amount of the trip. what are the pros and cons of these places?

Con for New York is it's still cold there. Con for New Orleans is rain and thunderstorms are predicted throughout the week of 3/27 thru 4/3.

Personally, I'd go for New Orleans; the chance to see somewhere new is almost always worth it.

Unique cultural mix, lots of history, great food, music, drinking.

I don't drink but i smoke alotta weed t.b.h. Im kinda leaning towards going NOEL but at the same time the price of going to new York would be like 1/2 with relatives helping pay

I'm going to spend a few days in LA in about 6-8 weeks. Not sure how many days yet but I would love to find someone to host me on couchsurfing. The hostels there are really expensive, as much as I'd love to stay in them.

As for food, I recently watched a docu about a food critic in LA, Jonathan Gold, and apparently his 101 best places to eat is a good list to start with. The one I'd like to try is Guelaguetza.

>hostels in the U.S.
are literally the same price if not more expensive than a motel.

it may be worth getting a motel somewhere outside of the city with good access to transit (near the airport comes to mind) and taking the train or the bus into LA. the cheapest places are going to be the worst, obviously.

also try the Heji Guiyuan Inn, they are advertising $15 rooms on trivago.com

how do people afford to travel? I'm a college student and would like to but it seems impossible to get the money.

The study abroad program at my college cost 6thousand dollars for a morocco. THAT'S AS MUCH AS MY TUITION !

also how do I figure out how much my trip would cost without consulting a trip advisor.

Because it never costs as much as travel bureaus and exchange programmes would make you believe. You're adding yet another middleman trying to make a big buck to the equation and the itinerary he offers never goes for the cheapest options. Trips to exotic countries are especially bad since people just assume they must cost a fortune, which isn't true since a dollar goes a loooong way in a lot of them.
Plan this shit out on your own, hunt for cheap flights, book hostel beds yourself and suddenly it's...

This is at least the 3rd thread asking how we afford traveling that's still up on /trv/. It's a slow board, please look at other threads before posting your own questions.

The people here are most likely somewhat older than the average channer, work, save up, and use their saved money to travel. Others are really into this hobby and manage to do it on the cheap, there are certain ways to travel cheap, the main costs are transport, food and shelter and almost all 3 can be free if you want to go that route. Although it might not be comfortable.

Study abroad programs usually are not very cost efficient. It's a great opportunity to study in another culture for a short while but if you can't afford it I say wait until you're done with school. The less debt you have after you leave the better. One of the rules most people here have a strong view about is not to get into debt for travel, save first then travel.

>also how do I figure out how much my trip would cost without consulting a trip advisor.

Which trip? the study abroad one or another one?

i need help planning a route through the countries listed. i know i start in Krakow, poland and i thought it would work quite well being that these are small, neighboring countries.

i'm mostly looking at doing the capital cities with some nature mixed in. can i cut a line from krakow to budapest?

>can i cut a line from krakow to budapest?
Yes, go via Poprad and Banská Štiavnica and you'll pass through the High Tatrus national park. It's a common route from Krakow, I think you can do it cheaply by train. Then from Budapest city connections are easy.
>>
I've done the route from Bratislava to Krakow once and the route through the Slovakian mountains was amazing. We stopped at Liptovsky Mikulas which is a town just off the route from Krakow to Budapest. Has a big waterpark too. Would definitely recommend doing that trip, all those cities are great

>Pic related. Them shits dont work.
Memory foam ones suck. They're heavy, hard to pack in carry-ons, and just squish down on the sides, but not enough at the back of the neck, and they're too thick for lumbar support.

Get the self- inflatable ones. They do work. You adjust the pressure as your own individual necks needs. They give at the back of the neck just right, and yet keep your neck from flopping.

I like to bring a packable down vest or jacket, which makes my whole seat back more comfortable, and good if chilly too! Noise cancelling headphones are a must. I also travel with Crocs slides, because my feet swell now with pressured cabins now that I am old, especially if I drink a cocktail. They are also cleanable through TSA sock walks and gross floors in lavatories that are wet. 4 wheeled carryon saves the shoulders, neck, back and feet from long terminal activity.

I always have a hanging toiletry bag, which doesn't need counterspace, and quickly goes back and forth, if you are in a hotel room with someone else who hogs the bathroom a while.

I'm planning a trip to the US next year. Specifically, to NY, DC, and the Fort Knox area.

I'll be staying for about three weeks, and as much as I'd like to stay in a hotel for the duration, I've been told that can get quite expensive. I'll be traveling with a friend who doesn't mind sharing a room, and I'd prefer to avoid hostels if possible.

What are some good options for lower cost accomodation?

That sounds like the itinerary for someone planning the master heist of the century. Just kidding, but Fort Knox, Kentucky seems awfully random.

For low cost Airbnb has become a really popular option in recent years. I've never used it though, but I've read positive things by some people on this board.
