Ahh, lovely! I love psy festivals, been to a few here in Australia (Psyfari and Dragon Dreaming). But this time around I'm going for different genres that I also love :)

I only have enough budget for Dimensions. You should also check out OZORA in Hungary and Tree of Life in Turkey.

I'll make this a double thread because /trv/ is such a slow board and I don't need to make two.

1. How do you guys find the money to travel?

I just finished paying off my car. Now I'm paying off my school loans. Next I'll probably get lasik eye surgery. Then maybe my teeth straightened. etc.

I want to travel real bad, but I keep finding higher priorities.

2. Traveling alone. Who here does it? What kind of mindset do you need to enjoy yourself?

>1. How do you guys find the money to travel?
I work in retail and earn between A$900-1200 a fortnight. Around this time last year, I opened a savings account dedicated just for travel, and chucked in A$200 every payday, leaving me with a comfortable amount of cash* to spend on necessities** and other things. Sometimes I will put in more than $200, even up to $500, and now accumulated around A$7000 for travel. (I recently lost shifts at work because I'm only a casual employee, and I still want to be able to put in as much as I can for travel because I leave in about 4 months)

My advice is open up a savings account solely for travel, put in X amount of money*** from each paycheck, and DO NOT ever touch that money. Don't even think it's yours anymore, think of it as Future You's money.

>2. Traveling alone. Who here does it? What kind of mindset do you need to enjoy yourself?
I've somewhat done it 4 years ago. Did a Eurotrip with TopDeck before, but then about a week or so of solo time in London and Paris. Being a very reserved and introverted type, it was a bit hard, but staying at hostels help, especially if you meet like-minded travelers as well. It can be a bit lonely wandering around by yourself at times, but you can get through that by just being amazed with new things/cultures/experiences.

I will be going solo again for my next time, but hope to enjoy myself even more this time; adapt and mingle better in social situations.


*I grew up in a third world country, so I can cope better with not having many luxuries that westerners are used to here.
**I live with my aunt, so rent is much cheaper, which helps a lot. To all students/young people living with family, I would suggest saving as much as you can while rent is cheap/free.
***The more value you assign to X, the faster you reach your travel goals or the more allowance you have to spend. I regret not putting more in earlier last year when I had more money.
>>
>>1091992
Do you *really* need a car? Can't you get around using public transport and/or cycling and/or walking instead?

School loans... well, fair enough, they do need to get paid.

Laser eye surgery: How impaired is your vision? Does it stop you from doing your tasks that you need to get done? Does it cause you constant, unbearable physical discomfort?

Straightening your teeth: how fucked are your teeth? Does it stop you from eating? Does it cause you constant, unbearable physical discomfort? Does it scare off every living creature you encounter?


I suppose there are just two ways I look at saving:
1. Stuff I want to spend on for a nice, comfortable, secure, repetitive life as another functioning normal member of society
2. To have different and unique experiences in different parts of the world, create memories and connections with things and people you can't find back home

I have like 800€ per month.
Living for my own costs me atm like 550€ per month, including flat,internet, party etc. I don't have a car so I can save enough money for travel. I need a maximum of 3000€ for a "luxury" 4 month travel, starting with 1k, when I'm flying somewhere.
Well,but keep in mind: I'm not saving for anything else , like a house or something - only travel and a little bit of extra like new clothes and stuff.

Planning a roadtrip through the US with (roughly) this route. Got a few things planned along the route, like visiting the countryside, but could use some suggestions on places nearby to swing off to.

We have a healthy travel budget and lots of time planned out to take our time, see the countryside, things both big and small. We're mostly on an exploration trip so we can go pretty much anywhere.

Any suggestions of things to stop by this route?

Why would you choose that route? If I was to choose the most boring route in the entire US, that would be up there in the top 5. The only suggestion I have is maybe spend some time on the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah Valley. The Blue Mountains are kinda cool and maybe the Ozarks...but, expect to run into lots of meth labs.

Otherwise, Nashville is worth a visit. You don't have DC in there, and I would definitely include that.
>>
>>1091907

Know some friends along the way, was thinking of visiting. But we could go faster at some places and skip over parts of TN, Kentucky, Ohio. We could probably swing up towards Niagra Falls, and head into Massachusetts, although I'm unsure what there is to visit there aside from Boston.

Could also swing West Virginia if there is something worth seeing there. Great nature is good suggestions, I'll def look it up. I'm also a bit of a history nut so would love to find some good civil war sites,...

American here going to be going to Europe soon for anywhere from 3-6 months for my job.
I've got Verizon cell phone service but I've heard that T-mobile is a European based company and has full coverage in most of Europe. Specifically I'll be in Germany and Poland and maybe the Baltics.

Does anyone have any experience using T-mobile in Europe? I don't even need calling, just data

Vodafone sims are like 10 euros with credit as well

When I was in Germany I got a Vodafone CallYa SIM for $22.50/mo with unlimited talk and text, and 1GB of LTE data. That was a good deal for my two week trip. I used the Rebtel app to get calling back to the US (connected via local phone) for less than two cents a minute.

Bitch is that the entire registration and activation occurs in German with no english translation but with google translate built into Chrome registering to get the SIM mailed to you isn't hard, and topping it off with a credit card is easy doing the same.

>>1091899

T-Mobile works great in Europe, but if you just need data seriously consider just picking up a local SIM for your phone. You'll just get, at best, 3G speeds instead of 4G speeds.

I'm planning on giving up everything and leaving for a Buddhist monastery somewhere in Asia. I have nothing to lose but the only thing I can offer them in return for my staying is my artistic skills, is it worth it? Also, post any experiences you might have of monasteries.

You will be incomprehensible to the monks and they wont really except you if you're not they're type of buddhist. Like... Western Buddhism ("Oh man I am so into meditation and zen and weeabooery/koreabooery and japanese food so zen is like the perfect religon for me") is different from Asian Buddhism(" Have the Theravadas and Mahayanas convert to Zen or die!

I've taken some meditation and dhamma courses at monasteries in Thailand, including two that are very well acquainted with foreign students (Wat Pa Nanachat, in Ubon Ratchathani, in the Northeast, which is aimed entirely at foreigners [name means international forest monastery], and Wat Suan Mokkh, down south), and one that is less so (a local temple in Mae Rim, outside of Chiang Mai--this one was not conducted in English). I found them worthwhile. But these were courses; I paid for them.

Hey /trv/. This is my first time here, and to be honest I feel like this is probably a fairly common theme for new threads, so if it is I apologize. I'm considering moving to LA in the near future. I live in Boston right now and I'm just straight up unhappy with my life and I desperately need a change of scenery. I have a fair amount of money saved up right now, and I have family (a brother) and friends out there. I guess I'm just looking for you guys to try to either talk me out of it or convince me I should go.

Sure why not the cost of living isn't all that more outrageous than Boston. Coach surf of your bro and friends for as long as you can swing it until you get a job bagging groceries or some shit and then you can be a little more financially stable to have a studio of your own. Los Angeles on the surface seems like an amazing place to live, but sooner or later the place gets to you and you realize it any all that.

Also, staying in one place, vs staying in a couple of places over the 4 days.

Almere, previously voted the ugliest city in The Netherlands. Seriously man, don't go there.

Go to places like Utrecht, Groningen, The Hague Leiden or Rotterdam.

The Hague might be a good move for you as it's 15 minutes by tram to Scheveningen beach.

I'm not a big fan of Rotterdam myself, but it is modern and I do love the harbor.

Groningen is a personal favorite.

Honestly, the country is small and compact enough that you can just stay in one place and head out from there to the everywhere else early in the mornings, and then drive back at night.

Its not dangerous really, the territory at the Syrian boarder is actually held by the Kurds and Al Quamishhli by the Syrian government, both western friendly. Probably the most dangerous thing possibly is a Turkish crackdown on Kurds in the area, just because its mainly a Kurdish town, but even then it would be very unlikley.

Batman itself has very little to do in it, as its an oil city and its a bit old and industrial. Not much information on it except there's some ruins in the outskirts of city (although...

If you want to eat, don't eat in the most obvious places. Look around, go through alleyways. The food is gonna be significantly cheaper, and probably better tasting. Same goes for coffee shops.
