293 KB,
My gf and I are planning a trip that we want to take next year. Basically we just want to get on a train and go around the US. Head northeast, see the big cities, go out west for the mountains, head towards the coast, and all that. Thing is, neither of us have ever done anything like this so I've got no clue what sort of things to look out for or how to plan properly. Any general advice would be appreciated!

We'd be leaving from the Dallas/Fort Worth area of TX if it's of any help.

if it was me I would look into more historical train rides (Colorado has a bunch as well as the east and west coast and just drive rental cars between destinations though they are pricy it will save you time because riding a train takes time....

how is the situation? language barrier? getting around by yourself? not into tours and shit like that. I've read up on other travel sites, but figured you guys have a more lay-of-the-land impression.

I don't know how easy it is to get a boat directly to Gibraltar; it's definitely easy to get to Algeciras, although I recommend sailing to Tarifa instead. It's a beautiful town with great tapas bars and views of Africa. From Tarifa it's maybe an hour by bus to La Linea, at the border with Gibraltar.
Is it worth the trouble and expense? Yes, but only if you happen to be in Morocco's far north anyway. It's straightforward enough if you're starting in Casa or Rabat, but Moroccan public transport is a pain in the ass so if you're in Chefchaouen don't think "oh I'm not so far from Tangier". Still, Gibraltar is motherfucking cool.
>Situation
There is no situation. There never has been a situation.
>Language barrier
You can use your Spanish in the far north. If you only speak English you'll only interact with people who want to get your money, and you'll quickly convince yourself that all Moroccans are scumbags. Try, try, try to learn as much French as possible before you go. I used a combination of Michel Thomas and Duolingo.
>Getting around by yourself
you'll have to deal with bus ticket salesmen who are mostly crooks. If they're charging you 100 dirham, if the trip isn't at least 3 hours long you're being cheated. Trains are functional but slow and don't go many places.
Shared taxis are the fastest way to get anywhere but they cram you in with six other people which is so uncomfortable I avoid them whenever I can.

Do you have any specific plans?
>Don't bother with Marrakech
>Do go to Rabat

>>1089732
I wouldn't bother with learning Arabic for a trip to Morocco, the dialect is so strong even native speakers from other parts of the Middle East can't understand them a lot of the time

Hey, just wondering if someone could edit the sticky in /trv/ to let people know one should:

A) search for a thread about your travel destination BEFORE making a new post.

B) be very specific in your question about

Hey /trv/!

I am going on a roadtrip from Hungary to Southern England (and back) and I need your advice on planing the route.

I want to drive 6-10 hours a day with the trip lasting 7-10 days. I'll sleep in campings or in my car. That won't be an issue.

I'll be visiting a few relatives/friends on the way so there are few mandatory stops.

I'm an American and I'm interested in visiting Cuba. Obviously the forbidden fruit aspect of it is a big draw, but I am genuinely interested in experiencing the island as it is now. I don't have any political agenda, and I would prefer to not get a license and just show up and bum around the island. For the Americans that have done this, is it easy to do? Have you been hassled? Is it an overrated destination?

It's not overrated.

It's not easy. You still need to do a tour with proper paperwork. It isn't instantaneous, you are looking a few months out.

I'm Australian and spent about three weeks in Cuba in October/November. First of all I would say make sure you do some research and possibly bring Lonely Planet guide. I got a bit caught out without the internet and without that many opportunities to meet other travellers. Secondly, the food is very shitty and supermarkets are very limited. Thirdly, it is quite expensive compared to the countries I had travelled to prior to Cuba (Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras at that point). If you re travelling by yourself accomodation...

So, my friends and I want a cheap lads holiday. But not somewhere shit and mainstream like Ibiza or the Greek Islands, we want somewhere unique to us, but it'll still be fun and cheap when we go.

My friend said Croatia, although the group is against it. What's a good, cheap place to go for a lads holiday, preferably with good weather?

I emphasise cheap, thanks /trv/. Pic unrelated (or is it?).

Seriously OP, the point of lads holidays is too keep yourself contained, so that sane reasonable people know where NOT to go to avoid shitstains like yourself. Lads holidays are one thing, whatever, but it's pretty rude to consider shitting up respectable places that aren't filled with drunk Brits climbing up and pissing on memorials to war dead.

Do us all a favour and stick to Ibiza or 'the Greek Islands'.

>>1089634
Seconding this.

does "lads holiday" mean "go somewhere people don't know us to be loud drunken assholes and bang sloots"? or do you want to actually go on a cool trip with a couple friends? and don't fucking say "both"-one of them has to be the priority.

Hey guys, I just got one question, wich I have to know right now. I got a job-proposal and now I have to go from Belgium to Ireland, I already booked a flight (almost) and I can also do a transfer (so I arrive at Dublin Airport and have to go to Belfast city centre)

There are these bus-transfers and one says:

Dublin Apt Express - Belfast City Centre (Single)

Does that mean 'Dublin AIRPORT Express' or am I completly retarded?

I will thank you up front!

I'm going to Cyprus for a week in four days, being based in Larnaca the whole time.

I want to see Nicosia, Limassol, Famagusta, and possibly Kyrenia and Paphos if it's not too long for a day trip. I don't have my own car, and have to rely on public transport. Will this be a problem? How is transport between north and south? Can I take a bus from Larnaca to Famagusta, for example, or to Kyrenia?

Any other sights apart from the big cities I shouldn't miss, that can be reached by public transport?

I've been to Cyprus, great place. Transport between North and South can be tricky without a local, although as long as you're from a politically stable country you'll be fine (EU passport is the easiest way to do it, that way it's easier to get back into the South).

Get a Taxi to Karpasia in the far North East, you won't regret it. There's a monastery right on the tip next to a huge beach (Golden Beach, pic related) which is often empty. The monastery has monks which allow visitors to come in and look at the ancient buildings, amazing, and in the middle of nowhere, in a cove next to the beach.

My only advice is get to the North East and back in one piece, its the most rural and least visited part, and you'll become more interesting if you go there instead of some tourist scum.

Go hike the great wall. Go to the Mutianyu portion not Badaling.

You take a ski lift up to the top from the parking lot. Then you toboggan down at the end of the day. Hike all the way to the end of the restored section. Ignore all of the signs that say end of tourist area. Keep going. Find a cool looking brick to take home. Leave really early, its pretty far from the city center. You can spend all day there.
