If a solo 29-year-old was to go on a trip in Europe in January, where would he go?

I'm thinking two locations close to each other for sightseeing, general exploration and (if possible in winter) some nature/outdoors/walks/hiking activities.

I've done a lot of Spain/France and the UK, and I'm from Ireland, so any other locations would be great.

Suggestions? Open to anything.

Definitely Austria.
I'm not sure how into /out/ you are but I've heard Austria's Kalkalpen park is great for hiking/camping/climbing. In fact, the entire country is beautiful. Innsbruck and Saltzburg are really nice, as well as the lakes near Saltzburg. (saltzburg in particular has decent nightlife and a younger population). Depending on how much you'd want to spend, you could go skiing also. I've never been to Vienna but, again, I hear nice things.

I'll check it out! Is Austria better in summer though?

For Ireland, google the Wild Atlantic Way (it's the tourism marketing drive for the entire west coast, which is where the nature/mountains/best landscapes are). You need a car to enjoy Ireland properly, be warned.

>Is Austria better in summer though?
Probably, but it depends on your tastes desu. Skiing is a huge draw. Not to mention I don't really know of a place in Europe that wouldn't be cold in January for outdoorsy stuff. However, I can still vouch for Saltzburg being good.

And thank you! I'll have a look at the WAW.

what kind of things should i expect?

if you could could provide me with what youve learned from your experiences and also help me in some fact checking in the research that ive done so far i would be immensely grateful.

there is a serious risk of terrorist attacks targeting tourists, there has been a history of them at a rate that should concern sensible travelers

So I MIGHT go home for New Year, flying literally on the 31st of December.

Flight takes off at 19:00 (in theory) and lands home at 22:00.

I was just wondering, how likely is it to get a massive delay on that day? If it helps I would be flying from Heathrow.

Distance from the airport to home shouldn't be more than a 20 minute drive. I obviously want to make it there before 00:00 since it will be a surprise for my family.

I'm getting deployed to either Iraq or Afghan, don't get to pick but wanna know which is better

If you want to learn a bit of the language while there, I suggest Afghanistan. Dari Persian is a much easier language than Arabic.
Where are you from?
>>
>>1189297
Well Afghanistan is mostly peaceful and has some beautiful landscapes, I've considered going there as a tourist. Hell, as part of the military you might get some of the great mountain views near the Pakistani border (Khyber Pass, etc...) where you pretty much can't go unless you are military. Iraq is still fairly dangerous and looks more like a boring desert.
>>
>>1189297
How do you even get to pick? What service are you in. I would personally say Afghan becausr as sketchy as the people are, its beautiful. If you are not combat arms though basically your deployment will consist of sitting on a base and never seeing the country at all.

Been recently to the USA. Most of them are overweight and unarmed. Most were white and very polite. A chubby TSA qt even started chatting me up while there was some hold up at security.

Unfortunately she didn't want to take me in for a random search.

The border/passport control dudes are fucking wack though. Depending on your luck mostly, be prepared to get harassed for 20min of them asking you the dumbest and strangest questions to make sure you're not some jihad bomber and can keep your cool.

I havent had that bad of an experience save for the fact that everytime there is always a fat Shaniqua yelling at me to HAVE YO BAGS OUT.

Trump was talking about reforming them or replacing them with veterans so we will see what happens.
>>
TSA are people with a lot of authority, who wouldn't have it in other work. But their job requires it, being a jerk is enough to catch many problematic people. One of the worst things to say to them is you aren't currently employed.

If you're Norwegian you probably have enough money and a good enough life in your country that you aren't considered much of a risk.

Usually customs agents are friendly to people from their country, and mean to others.
