Are wool shirts worth the hype?

Cotton dries too slow without a dryer and my polyester shirts smell like ass.

Is this really the only option? What about linen?

I can't stand it for warm weather. I don't even sweat a lot and I only ever wear my merino wool stuff for warmth. Shit drives me nuts.

Polyester looks like shit and ends up smelling so I've still been sticking with cotton, unfortunately.
do you bleach your cotton on the road?
I avoid white when travelling but at home my white shirts are on point.

I wear a lot of h&m shirts that look like more than one material and they tend to look pretty good with shitty washes as it's more than one tone/the blacks don't look as faded because they're a grey fibers/etc. They're also super thin so they dry as quick as cotton can

OP just accepted a job offer at Sofia, Bulgaria. The job is language specific customer support.

Any experiences in travelling or living there?
7 posts and 1 images submitted.
Not my favourite place in the world, but it's a very hectic, vibrant city with lots going on. Also everything is very cheap, so if you have a bit of money saved up you'll be able to live very nicely. You'll need to watch out for the traffic, drivers are insane there

I've never been but I lived with a Bulgarian guy a couple of years ago, he was cool

Prepare to drink a lot of rakia and say "nazdrave!" a lot
The noodle place on the street in ops pic is pretty good.

I know a few people who are doing customer support for big companies in Sofia. It's a shitty wage if you only speak English but the Italian and Dutch guys that I met who do it get like 150 euros more a month.

Bar scene there is pretty cool. It doesn't have a name but there is a bar that used to be a horses stable then an underground publishing house during the communist period and now it's an illegal bar. Heaps of candles and no electric lighting. Fire waiting to happen but the vibe is pretty sweet there.

Plovdiv is nicer and there is a lot more to do there but Sofia is pretty chill. I lived in Istanbul through 2014 and 15 so I would go to Bulgaria a couple of times a month because it was cheaper to drink and have fun there. Also for private healthcare since the stuff on offer in Turkey was shit.

If you're happy getting paid shitty wages for a full time gig then I'd say Sofia is an okay place to live.

Sup /tee are vee/. I am honeymooning on a cruise ship later this summer, and want to know if it'd be ok to bring bondage gear with me.

Do you think they would confiscate rope (approx 300 ft), 8 leather locking restraint cuffs, a flogger, EMS shears, and miscellaneous metal items (O-rings, mini master locks, carabiners, etc)?

Any info or experience is appreciated. The website wasn't amazingly helpful: https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2261

You should be fine with what you listed. It's not an airplane, so they're more lenient with their policies. As long as you don't have any explosives, large weapons, or firearms, you should be fine.

Enjoy your cruise you kinky bastard.
From my experience going on a cruise; they scan the luggage before entry like they would at airport security. Also on the last night of the cruise; they asked us to leave our luggage outside of our cabins so that they can pick it up on the harbor.
>rope (approx 300 ft)

What do you do that need 300ft of rope.

any suggestions for what to do with an 11 hour layover at 2 am at New Delhi Airport?
8 posts and 0 images submitted.
Assuming you don't have an Indian visa and must stay airside, there are quite good, 24hr paid lounges at Indira Ghandi Intl. Napping areas, showers, storage, booze, food, wifi. I haven't personally spent more than about five hours there, but it was moderately nice if a little expensive. There is probably also an airport hotel if you need more privacy/luxury.

what if I got a day visa or something (haven't researched yet) and ventured into town
It'll cost you at least $70 to get a short-term visa...is that worth it to you?

I need your help, /trv/. I'm planning on backpacking from Barcelona to Marrakesh on June, not trying to do all of Spain but mainly focusing in Andalusia.

Some background first, 22yo exchange student from 3rd world country living in the NL for the past 5 months, have already been traveling like crazy. Right now I’m about to finish the semester and I’m planning on traveling a little bit more before returning home.

Mainly interested in the cultural/historical aspect of the places I visit, more likely to spend the nights resting after really long days walking and visiting around than clubbing.

With that being said, here’s the first draft of my itinerary (14 nights) for this leg of my trip:

>Barcelona - 3 days/3 nights
The first two are mainly for Primavera Sound so It's really 1 day, but I've already been there and I only would like to visit a couple of specific places. Also, I've heard it's crazy expensive right now.

>Tarragona (or Cuenca) – 1/0 days
Or any other town/city between Barcelona and Madrid that would deserve a visit and could be done in just one day or even as a daytrip from either. Any suggestions?

>Madrid (with a daytrip to/stop by Toledo) – 2 days/2 nights
Also been there already, mainly visiting again because it’s been ages since I’ve gone to Del Prado and I’ve never been to the Reina Sofía. So mainly a couple of museums one day and Toledo, which I’ve never been to, the other.

>Córdoba – 1 day/1 night

>Granada (or Seville) – 2 days/2 nights
This is one of my great concerns, which should I choose? I don’t really think I’ve the time for both and that visiting each just 1 day would not do any any justice. Help.

35 posts and 8 images submitted.

>Algeciras or Tarifa + Tangier – 1 day
This one is mainly a travel day, from Seville or Granada to the town where I’ll take the ferry to Tangier (either Algeciras or Tarifa).

>Tangier – 1 night
I’ve read that Tangier is not as nice or interesting as other places of Morocco, so I’d only give it the day I arrive and the next one I’d leave for Chefchaouen.

> Chefchaouen - 1 day/1 night

>Fes – 2 days/1 night
Do you think that’s enough for Fes? I’d stay another day but that would mean skipping Marrakech.

>Overnight train (or bus) Fes-Marrakech – 1 night

Has anybody taken any? Is sleepping the same as getting robbed?

>Marrakech – 2 days/1 night
Once again, do you think it’s going to be enough to do it justice? Should I take those tours to the Zagora dunes/Atlas Mountains?

I’d be extremely grateful for any tip or suggestion, of any kind. Itinerary, places visited, must-sees, anything. Like I mentioned, this is just my first draft so I’m totally flexible.

I know this was a Spain thread so you guys can ignore all the Morocco part if you want, but If anybody has been to any of the places I’ve mentioned in any of those countries and could give me anything, specially about the choices Tarragona/Cuenca/other and Sevilla/Granada; and the time spent on the Moroccan cities.

Thanks, /trv/
between Barcelona and Madrid Zaragoza might be an option. not much to see there but it should keep you busy for the day. they have one moorish palace (aljafería) which is unusual so far north and a large cathedral. inner city is kind of nice too.
otherwise you might want to skip the stop in between completely and use the day for either sevilla or granada so you get to see both.
both of those cities deserve a longer stay and both are essential if you come to andalusia imho.
with how little time you have in morocco your itinerary there seems good to me though you may get tired of the country because you're only going to (potentially stressful) tourist cities.
since you say you are from a third world country though, i doubt you will have many problems with the touts.
zagora/atlas mountains might be a nice addition since you will get to see a different side of the country outside of medinas. the sand desert at zagora is not really a landscape that is representative of morocco as a whole but it does fulfill all the expectations people have when they are going to an "arab" country, riding on a camel etc. it's all there.
the atlas mountains are very beautiful and more typically moroccan. you may have the chance to see some berber villages so that might be an interesting addition as well

I'm an English guy living in France and I have two-three weeks in July with nothing really to do but relax, hike up hills and draw/paint/drink. Does anyone have any suggestions of somewhere in Europe (not France) for me to do this? I went to the Cinqa Terra last year and to some little villages further south, and whilst it was beautiful there were too many people which kind of spoilt the vibe.

Yes it's selfish to want to be a tourist where there are no other tourists but hey, that's what we all want right?

So far I can only recommend Slovenia (definitely lake bled) for a summer trip since I very rarely travel in July/August.

Any suggestions? Thank you /trv/ you are my greatest ally.

In return I will give my own suggestions of places I've visited outside the busy tourist season.

Ever been to the Pyrenees ? The Spanish side in that case
No, should I go anywhere in particular? I've only been to Andorra and Barcelona in that area.

Hey everyone. I will be spending a little over three weeks in Cuba in august. I was wondering if you could supply me with some tips and recommendations.

>Anything in particular I should remember with regards to visa?

>Are you still able to travel spontaneously and without booking too much in advance, what with the thawing diplomatic relations?

>Must sees? Places to avoid or skip?

>General advice?

Hablo un poco español y portuges, creo que sea suficiente para communicar con los cubanos.

I was thinking in going to Cuba as well, since probably is the last opportunity we'll have before all changes so I'm bumping this thread
>Anything in particular I should remember with regards to visa?
Only if you're from the states, else you just buy the tourist card and thats it.

>Are you still able to travel spontaneously and without booking too much in advance, what with the thawing diplomatic relations?
You can travel pretty spontanously but you can only stay in registered casa particulars and hotels. Staying anywhere else will get your hosts and you into a shitload of trouble (remember cuba is 16 million people and 8million are part of the police force). Wild camping is possible to some degree but it might end with hilarious scenes involving the local CDR or Military....

>Must sees? Places to avoid or skip?
Santiago de Cuba, Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Pinar del Rio are great.
If you don't absolutely love lads tour tier binch drinking you can skip Varadero.
Havana is cool, stay in Vedado and if you feel like going to the beach take a taxi to Playas del Este (15CUC)
Else well skip Habana Vieja or go there for a walk but it's just a large tourist trap where the americanization of cuba is already completed. beggars, scammer, rose vendors and homeless next to luxury brand stores, shitty restaurants that are 2-10x as expensive as the rest of cuba filled with fannypack equipped selfie stick wilder...

>General advice?
Most of the stuff has fixed prices and a beer has the same price in a restaurant as in the stores in most places, Rum is dirt cheap (3CUC for a bottle) and tastes great make sure to try the different brands and ages, the island is filed with 24h fastfood stands so you can always get a drink/food, just because it's on the menu is no guarantee that a restaurant actually has it, as well Cuba has zero concept of stock management so expect even a large upper class hotel to run out of coke, beer, rum or even bottled water daily and they won't learn from it....
DONT FUCK AROUND WITH THE POLICE (or any officals) !!!
Even if you're the alpha so smart chat shit king of bants, just STFU
Thanks, that was really helpful!

If you were traveling for two weeks with your girlfriend and her best friend, would you go to Berlin or Tokyo?
All three of us are travel noobs, and none of us speak German or Japanese fluently (I took one semester of German, girlfriend took one semester of Japanese).

Tokyo if it was for two weeks.
But these threads are a lot more helpful if you tell us where you're from, what your budget is and why you're only going to a single city on completely different sides of the earth.
You're a cuck and a beta male

nobody gives a fuck about your retarded blog you faggot. next time take ten seconds to look through the catalog and you will find about fifteen different pre-existing threads about southeast asia and teaching english. read them and if then you're still to dense to know the answers to your questions you're probably too dense to teach anyone anything, so you should probably go kill yourself.

tl:dr-fuck off and die
Shit son, seem like a mad fucking basement dweller has arrived. Does being a total fucking dick online satisfy your needs of feeling superior while carrying a two inch dick? I didn't read the catalog so i'm sorry about that but i'll turn my attention to it now and read it.

I currently live in Toronto, Canada as a student with my mother and I am currently debating if I should stay here or move to San Jose, California.

Apparently, the job that I'm going for here in Toronto starts off at 58k CAD which is 44k USD. If I were to get hired as the same job in San Jose, they start off at 84k USD which is 110k CAD.

It would take me literally 6 years to get up to that salary in Toronto when I start at 100k CAD in San Jose.

Though after a little bit of comparing, the cost of living in San Jose is a little bit (27%) more expensive than in Toronto. But to argue you're making much more money and the Canadian dollar is 0.76 to the American dollar.

Is it worth moving for a better possible quality of life?
40 posts and 4 images submitted.
I'd take it for that money.

But the city itself is a bit boring. Not sure what race you are but there are a lot of mexicans and some asians (mostly SEA like viets and flips). it's a bit ghetto in some areas
If you live in central Toronto and enjoy big city life, moving may not be your best choice--although San Jose is technically the biggest city in the Bay Area, and there is a downtown core that is supposedly improving (Apple is building a massive new campus, larger than the mothership in Cupertino, and the city anticipates a lot of new residents and housing), the city is quite spread out and feels very suburban. Single family homes, strip malls, driving everywhere, etc. Weather's good, though... warmer and sunnier than in San Francisco (where I live). Anyplace on the Peninsula (the area between SJ and SF) is mostly fairly attractive, medium-to-insanely expensive suburbs.

As you may know, more and more tech people with jobs in Silicon Valley choose to live in San Francisco and commute, some on company buses. This is not actually a cool perk, and more of an ordeal--you're looking at hours on a clogged highway for what could be a couple of hours a day, whether on a bus or in your own vehicle. Plus sentiments are mixed at best in the city about the tech people, who are increasingly blamed for rising rents and declining quality of life (they're not quite responsible for the former but have certainly contributed to the latter in some ways).

Anyway, a good life can certainly be made in and around San Jose. But it probably makes more sense to worry about this decision when you've got job offers to choose from.
That's what I'm thinking, also in terms of property, you get space for your buck. Plus the weather is a plus.

I do enjoy the big city life but it does get pricey! I don't mind living in the suburbans, the homes there seems nice and you're getting better quality for your dollar compare here in Toronto. I don't mind the drives as I love cars. But I would stick to San Jose because I can make the most money there instead of San Fran. It's definitely a tough choice!

Currently visiting New York.

I'm an animal lover so I'd like to see the zoo in Bronx, however I heard Bronx is a complete shit hole where people stab you for glancing at them while you walk by.

How do I get to the zoo from Manhattan the safest without getting stabbed by some crackhead?

were you watching 80's films or something

jew york is safe as fuck

Bruh: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1eB3cfuq2tEUpHgHZ6mKzV1UjrU8&hl=en_US

OP, you'll be fine. The zoo is in one of few areas not covered in shit.

that's the pussiest fucking map I've ever seen

the bronx is safe, whoever made that is probably some weenie ass brooklyn hipster

As long as you aren't buying or selling drugs you'll be perfectly fine, no one wants to fuck with white people, it never turns out well

Hi /trv/

One of my inifinite travel plans is going to Scandinavia, and this would be my route:
Copenhagen/Malmö - 7d
Gotemburg - 3d
Oslo - 5d
Stockholm - 5d
Turku - 3d
Helsinhi - 5d
Here is the problem: would it br feasible to get a two-day ferry from Helsinki to Copenhagen? Also, would my trip be any good?
16 posts and 3 images submitted.
You're missing out on the unique landscapes and beauty of Norway. You should stick that it in if you possible can.
Helsinkifag here
>would it br feasible to get a two-day ferry from Helsinki to Copenhagen?
Unfortunately no. U'll have to go to stockholm and through sweden.
to add: Imo 8 days in Finland is too long. Maybe go further west in norway rather.

As a thought experiment, let's say you are confined to stay in a single city for the rest of your life, and can't leave the metro area.

Which city would you choose, and why?

Probably San Diego

Ive been married for about 2 years and my wifes passport has her Maiden name on it still. We have traveled to Europe (We are US Citizens) with her passport since marriage, and everything was fine because I booked all of the tickets in her maiden name. However I just booked some tickets to Russia and I wasnt thinking about the Visa process with her maiden name. I went through and filled out the Visa application like she is single and unmarried, using the name on the passport.

>Do you think this will be a problem when it comes to getting a visa?
10 posts and 1 images submitted.
It's not worth the risk. Two years is a long time not to either decide to stick with the maiden name, or get IDs, a new drivers license and passport (and voters reg and social security card). Passports can be gotten with tickets with some urgency...two weeks?

Maybe you should just eat the ticket, buy a single new one, or get them changed with whatever tour you bought. US is an enemy of Russia, so any trouble you have would be the wrong kind of forgiveness. They're serious in their reciprocation of the visa process and every visitor from the US is a possible spy, so you know :P
Lol what? This is fear mongering at its finest
>Lol what? This is fear mongering at its finest
Russian media propaganda at its finest, alive and well!

OP, they're notorious for cancelling visas and creating issues for travelers, mistakes that cost you time and money to fix. Don't risk a thing. Have everything in order. This is really advice for every country. I've traveled If your spouse has a driver's license with both names listed, might be okay, but some jackass immigration official or even airline official can destroy your whole trip with the hiccup of understanding.

Hi travellers!

Here goes a little about me:
I'm 24, grew up in Denmark and went travelling as a 19 year old. First I lived in a city park in Montpellier for 3 months during the occupy movement in 2011.

Afterwards my life have been in turmoil and I've lived for several years in a christian community called The Twelve Tribes in Germany, France, England and also twice been in the US with same said community.

In october I had to leave the community and did a trip hitchhiking to Sahara in November and then again in January I had a month hiking in spain and a month living on Tenerife.

All this time I've had no income, no real home and no plans.

So now I'm back in Denmark and would like to go travelling again.

Some of the places I wish to see are Nordkapp in Norway, the Baltics, east europe - specifically Romania, Bulgaria and maybe Greece and Italy.

The pitfall of my way of travelling is that I've become quite a loner and really a deep desire I have is to find someone and share all these experiences with. Now I don't know what kind of people get on here, but shout out if you know of any who like travelling on the more alternatives routes of Hitchhiking, busking, squandering and having a deep philosophical outlook on life!

Best regards, Martin
