Hong Kong, Singapore...? I want somewhere to stay a week en route to Philippines.

Singapore is very safe, loads of good cheap food and a really nice place if you're staying for a short period.

Not sure how the airbnb prices are.

Hey /trv/, I'm in Rome right now, heading out tommorow. I have a couple grand in the bank left for my trip, and I'm starting to miss home. I figure that I'll be coming back stateside in a couple weeks anyway, so my dilemna is should I

A: Take a luxury train to Paris and blow all my money on expensive meals, nice hotels, and fancy museums.
B: Take a flight to Tokyo and fufill all my weebdreams, continue living the hostel life.

Personally I've always wanted to travel to Japan, but feel like if I don't go to Paris then I won't have truly completed my european grand tour.

Or get the train from paris to moscow and then get trans siberian to beijing. Then go to shanghai and get ferry to weeb haven.

Thats atleast twice as expensive as flying, not including all the visas I'd need to travel to russia and china.

I plan on attending the World Cup in Russia, I think a budget of at least 5k is a decent amount. If not then feel free to tell me. My question is what I else I can do while there. I'll most likely be by myself, and any tips on traveling in Russia will be appreciated. I'm going to be 19 by the time I'd leave to Russia, and am Mexican American if that matters. I also do plan on learning as much Russian as I can. Are youth hostels a good way to meet other young people to hangout with?

2.5-3k will be spent on plane tickets, another 1k on game tickets and 1.5k for food housing ect. I plan on attendting 3 group games. And will try to see if I can go to a round of 16 game. So I will be there for atleast 4 weeks.
>>
>>1299509
i'm going as well OP, where are you from m8?
i'm mexican american as well.
I'm thinking of taking about $4k, since my friend will be able to let me stay at her place, which is fucking great.
>are youth hostels a good way to meet other young people to hangout with?
Always. Have fun
>>
>>1299521
Forgot to mention, did you get a visa, or are you getting the Fan ID with the game tickets?

Sup /trv/ Spaniard here stuck in África after car crash (pic related). Already contacted the embassy. Appointment tomorrow with local lawyer. So, 3 or 4 days of paperwork ahead.

Any advice on how to spend those days (besides court) ?

Anybody nows the city?

how do you flip a car on a straight road?
>>
May looks straight but its not, pretty bad road, It was a curve between two "hills" where we avoided another car coming to us though the middle of the road. No lanes un África.

Also take a look at our tyres. One blowed up. Shitty rental company.

I saw a recent movie according to which there is a high availability of child prostitutes. So if that rocks your boat you might have soemthing to do. The movie's dutch, it's called Tirza . ACtually a pretty cool movie, not just stereotype peddling, so you might give it a go if you've nothing to do. Shows other places in Namibia too

My travels have brought me to Thailand, Colombia and Ethiopia. Always had amazing fun though after the last trip to Ethiopia I am convinced that I need to keep going to destinations that remain to be discovered, where people still are not used to see foreigners.

Ethiopia was absolutely humbling, incredibly safe, cultural mindfuck, great and cheap food. Downside - little difficult to get closer with locals and sun too strong (easy sunburn).
Where to go next? Been thinking about Iran and Nepal. The latter is likely full of tourists though.

Like to do outdoor activities but also wandering around cities and contemplating about life but also interactions with people.

>Nepal
Great for outdoor activities, but mostly in tourist groups. I did a 3 day river-raft which was a blast. Except you go hiking alone.
And I don't know how it is nowadays, because of the quake. Anyone?
I don't suggest Kathmandu because its dirty and smelly. Can also be quite cold.
>>
Iran is great, and has a whole bunch of various climates and great cities. Sure there's the stereotypical desert, but there's also snowy mountains, and mediterraneans climes with forests and shit, plains.
>>
Iran (already mentioned was great), so was Finnish Lapland in the middle of winter, Georgia is great and so were small towns in Norway. Also I absolutely loved Macedonia

On a shoestring budget. Anons where do I start? Something more nature oriented is preferable.

Before you come here, I suggest you just fucking save up some money first. Dont buy tobacco or alcohol, every foreigner complains that its expensive as hell here. Maybe try coachsurfing.
>>
>>1298880
define "shoestring budget"
It can differ from someone from pakistan or someone from the USA.

In general: Norway has a high cost of living.
Tell us why in particular Norway?
>>
>>1298987
Why would you use pakistan as an example?

Hello /trv/

I'm going to Spain (Southern part), and other places in Europe after that... starting tomorrow and I have booked no hostels or hotels, etc. I'm planning on just sleeping on the beach for the first few nights (if possible) or on the street if not) and then possibly hostels after that since my budget is limited. I just bought a one way ticket and that's about it. Got nothing to lose, really. Fuck it.

Is this possible, or am I going to get raped/arrested/mugged/fucked in general? Lol

Any advice for travelling/backpacking on a budget?
(I'm travelling light, no tent though, just spare clothes, etc. No laptop only my phone and going to have to use free wifi if available) I've also never travelled alone before so I am nervous as hell as you may imagine. I've left enough in my bank for a return if I need it, but that it literally it. Hopefully I'll be able to find a dish washing job although this is probably unlikely in the short term. My main concern is obviously not dying and being able to find a place to store my belongings like a locker, paid storage etc.

What do you think? Appreciate any replies.

Where are you from? Another EU country?

I was there last year and never ever booked hostel until last minute. Several times booked it while on train on way to next stop, but I did have cheap moviefone sim with data. A few times just showed up at hostel, got room or got directed to hostel with room.

Nice one. Thanks for the info. Any advice?
Looks great, I'm travelling on just under 500 euros so probably gonna be tight but I want to make it last for as long as possible. Do you think it's possible to sleep """rough""" if I have to without dying/being arrested? Will surely save me some cash

In which two cities that you've never been to would like to live and why? As you've never been to those places, your decision is based solely on other sources than yourself.

Johor Bahru (close to Singapore, about commuting distance, yet much cheaper)

Washington DC (people close to me liked the city a lot. Also, seems like I can live there without a car)
>>
Montréal. It seems to have everything I like besides an ocean. Cold weather, modern, cycling infrastructure, bilingual, close to family (New England).

Portland (ME). Many of the same reasons as above, but better fishing and have heard it's quite cozy.
>>
OP here. By the way, it would be interesting to also say where you're from. So I'm from Munich, Germany and my two cities would be:

1) Seattle: Seems to have relaxed people and I guess it's muliticultural without having problems because of that. The food seems great and I think I wouldn't mind the rainy weather. The outdoors around the city also seem to be awesome. On top of all that, Seattle doesn't seem to be as hipsterish as Portland.

2) Sapporo: I've never been to northern Japan, but I love Japan. I hate the humid summers, though and that would be much better in Sapporo. I also like the wilderness and pioneer spirit plus the elusiveness of the city. The whole mindset seems to be a bit more American than in the rest of Japan and I also really like America, so that's a plus.
