The view is scenic everywhere in Norway but it costs more + road tolls. The fjord-rich areas along the westcoast are probably the best for scenic. Maybe Hardangervidda (mountainous area down south). Other popular destinations include the Geiranger fjord, Atlanterhavsveien, Trolltunga and Preikestolen but if you want impressive 100% nature shots you might wanna go farther north like Lofoten.
The southern 2/3 of Sweden is pretty much flat but I'd say there's more deciduous forest and larger lakes with a flat spruce horizon compared to Norway. In large parts of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I will be doing a bit of Travelling and I've found out I will get a chance to spend a day in Baltimore. I'm flying into BWI and plan on taking the light rail downtown. So what are some good things to do around Downtown. I'm interested in history and architecture, so would ideas on coll historic neighborhoods that are (for the most part) safe. I grew up in a majority black town so I'm not afraid of blacks, but I would like to avoid riots and potential chimp-outs if at all possible.
>>1092682 >so would ideas on coll historic neighborhoods that are (for the most part) safe That came out wrong. I meant to say I want to know some cool historic neighborhoods that I can stroll down without being mugged.
If I visited Baltimore, I would want to visit two historic sites: Fort McHenry and the B&O Railroad Museum.
Fort McHenry (~2.5 miles southeast from downtown) guards the entrance to Baltimore Harbor and a battle that happened there during the War of 1812 inspired a poem that became the US National Anthem.
The B&O Railroad Museum (~1 mile west of downtown) is the best museum of its kind in the United States. It has the largest collection of railroad equipment dating from the 1800s in the country, which is housed inside an an old railroad complex dating... Comment too long.

Buying a 590L Nomad for an expedition ride. Planning on travelling for over a year. I've read reviews about what handle bars people use ie, bbb multibar to the salsa wood chipper. Does anyone have any experience with either bar? I'm not going to buy a flat bar.
>>1092662 another option that is worth considering is the Jones Loop bar, kind of a flat bar but with way more versatility. Provides a nice backsweep for an upright all day riding position and also and extension for when reducing wind resistance is necessary. Also lots of options for hand placement to reduce shoulder and arm fatigue. Can we also make this a BTG (bike travel general).

I'm wanting to spend time in Japan as a high school exchange student, however I have some questions. How old do you have to be, and when are you considered "too old" as a high school student to do foreign exchange? I just turned 19 (old, I know) and am halfway done with my senior year- which brings me to my other question. Am I able to qualify even though I'm so close to graduating, would I have to repeat a year here (US) in order to be able to study abroad? Someone please give me some info on this, thanks.
>>1092631 I have a friend, an inexplicable Suomiboo, who did an extra year of high school through AFS. He graduated, moved to Finland, did the equivalent of a second senior year in Varkaus, learned Finnish, came home, went to university a year and a bit older than his youngest peers. I think he was probably only eighteen when he left, so yes, he was a little younger than you. But he did it, so it's definitely possible. His program was not at all academically intensive, and of course he did not need the grades, but he did... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi guy, did any of you go in north Italia for holidays ? I'm planning to go to Genova in a youth hostel, but I never tried this kind of accomodation. Do you have any advice + do you know if north Italia is great ( girls / atmosphere / things to do ? )
>>1092730 And how are the people in youth hostel ? Do they come from a lot of different countries ? Do they speak to each other or is it a bit awkward ? I'm going with a friend of mine, we're both French but can speak English
>>1092731 well it depends which hostel you visit. i was at a very popular hostel, so it was easy to meet people , and people are drunk enough not to be awkward. it's very similar to other hostels in europe really.
Ok. So I'm planning on moving there. So I'll just brainstorm some random questions. 1. What's the best prepaid solution with good data? 2. How much does food actually cost if you're not a tourist? 3. How is the nightlife? Is there a lot of underground clubs where people just go crazy? 4. What's the average pay for a 2 bedroom apartment? 5. How would would expenses be for one month living? (I tend to stay longer but just need to know for budget reasons)
They have a couple of good amusement parks in those places.
Hong Kong: Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park Hong Kong. Ocean Park must be good, because it gets more visitors per year than Hong Kong Disneyland. Ocean Park also has a roller coaster made by B&M (the Rolls-Royce of roller coaster makers) bolted to the side of a mountain peak overlooking the ocean. HTe Disneyland park is still pretty cool and has a few unique attractions not found in any other Disney Park, such as Mystic Manor and Grizzly Mountain.
Taiwan: Janfusun Fancyworld and Lihpao Land. Janfusun... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1092338 hkfag here, try walking through some indoor markets, those places are located inside government buildings that are rented out to vendors, you'll see some interesting shit there for outdoor markets, try Sham Shui Po or Mong Kok, prepare to shove your way through the masses tho as for prostitution , try 11 Cheung Ning St in To Kwai Wan, ignore the church sign and go up the stairs, you'll find several rooms throughout the apartment, knock on the door and ask for the price, cheap but decent ones goes for...

>>1092338 >technology places In HK, there are several technology markets but the best is the ground floor and basement of Golden Dragon Arcade in Sham Shui Po. It's on google maps, just put in the arcade name and it will find it, just next to the metro station.

How can you guys do it? Just up and go travel? I have 8k saved up and dream of backpacking SEA or Central America ,but I just know I would be totally clueless. I never even been on a plane before. How was your first time traveling?
8k what- sea shells, bottle caps? Anyway, just jump in senpai. It's not an exact science, figure out what you want to see and research where is offered. Do minimal prep-work with regards to travel documents and immunizations (if any) so you're not caught dead in the water and just fly off.
They're people there going through daily life just as you are, sure there are differences, but they're not terribly off and that's what makes traveling appealing.

The first time I traveled alone was when I was 19 years old. I went to tokyo for 10 days and got lost in tokyo itself 3 times I think, and I also got lost 2 times in the mountains 3 hours with the train outside of tokyo. I was also 1 hour late for the latest checkin for my flight back, but I still somehow managed to get the plane. What I want to say is, there is nothing to worry about when you are clueless sometimes, there will always be a way out of everything. Pic related, the second time I got lost in the woods, I was only walking for around 7 hours without any... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is it dangerous to travel to South America during this summer because of Zika and all that? Also, is it dangerous for a girl to go volunteer there by herself? My level of Spanish is crappy but enough for simple conversations.
I have some girl friends that are exchange students in both Chile and Argentina and I have seen that they are pretty safe and comfy. But those are areas that are kinda safe from Zika and mosquitoes in general. I would avoid Central America and northern South America tho.
Also, if you need to practice Spanish before going try using Interpals.net
>asking local girl where the best places to eat are >"just download foursquare"
In hindsight it's a country where going out to eat is an extreme exception and people rely on home cooked meals, plus she wasn't the outgoing type.
I guess I will then. Trolling the streets and looking for places where people pile up is as reliable as ever, but the nooks and crannies can slip by. Then there's a risk that even though you ask locals, they might not be knowledgeable... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
European here. I'm self employed and have the luck, that even though my moderately high income (60k € / year) I'm rather location independant.
If even though most of my income is being saved, I'm considerin using this situation to travel more. But now I don't even know how to start?
The most busy time of the year for me is right now, usually april/may/june. I wouldn't travel too far in this time. All the other months I'm basically free and can work from wherever I want, as long as I've got the magical internet.

May I ask which job you work in? I'm also looking forward to somehow live like a digital nomad.
Most of the guys here will say SEA, because you can live like a king there with 60k/year. But the question is, if you really want this. I'd prefer other countries, maybe even in Central or South America, because the people there are way more open-minded and kind towards 'strangers'. Also South Europe would be great for me, but this is a very personal question..
