Depends what you want. London's basically a collection of villages.

Hampstead, Shoreditch, Highbury, Ladbroke Grove are all nice but totally different.

Thinking about going to Nepal and doing this.
Any of you guys have any experience with it? Is it worth it?
Anywhere you would recommend?

Do you have any prior experience with meditation?

It's gonna be difficult to jump into a full-on retreat with zero prior knowledge of how to meditate.

I'm sure pretend meditation and asking the monks to take your picture is easy enough.

Wassup /trv/. In 2 weeks im headed to Sao Tome and Principe. I literally picked this destination because i saw a picture of the Pico cão grande (pic related) and im obviously gonna go there but what else is there to do on this little island that barely nobody even knows exist?
I have a week there and that week i will have the capital Sao Tome as my base but the island is small so it looks like i can just do daytrips anywhere.
So far ive heard that english is non existant and that there are no ATMs, can you provide any other useful information?

Hi everyone!

27 y/o male from Uruguay here.

I'm travelling to Europe in early November, for 15~ days. Possible destinations include Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague and possibly Munich as well (although I'm open to suggestions)

So, I really don't know how to plan this, how many days per destination I should use, etc. and am looking for advice. I'm mainly interested in getting to know some cities, doing walking tours, relaxing a bit. I'm interested in historic stuff but not really in art museums.

I'll be travelling alone and will be staying at hostels. I'm introverted and find it difficult to meet new people, but I guess that's something I'll be able to do in hostels, right?

General advice on locations, things to see, how many days per city, etc are more than welcomed! First time I'll be travelling alone and I have no clue on how to plan this shit

Forgot to ask about that... I'm quite fluent in english, I was under the impression that that was going to be enough for travelling/hostels

Do workers at train stations, etc in those cities tend to know english?

>>1296311
Can only speak for czech and austrians; Most trainstationworkers speak enough English for you to understand roughly what they want. Most young people speak semi-decent english, some.even spanish. Old people only speak their native tongue.

Britfag here, I've never been on holiday by myself, I've got about a week's worth at the end of this month rolling over into early October.

My budget is £1000~ and I want an all-inclusive hotel but I have no idea where to go, is it too late to book flights etc now?

I don't even know what I want to do, I just want to go to another country in Europe, sight see but not go to a tourist trap or somewhere with a bunch of clubbing lads and slags i.e. Ibiza.
Any suggestions?

What are you interested in? You can't just say "another country in Europe" and leave it at that. Art and culture? Food? Outdoors? Sex tourism? Relaxing on a beach?

I was thinking of Greece but I honestly have no idea to be honest, I've only ever gone to a hotel in Cyprus, some camping around France/Spain, and a school trip to Berlin/other parts of Germany before.
I want to relax, be able to see some ruins or history and get some great food.
Just want to know any specific towns or cities that aren't pleb-tier or over run, but still developed enough to give a good time.
I'm not into clubbing or sex tourism.

Ask a Dallas resident anything.

Why should I go there

>>1296276
I'll break it down into a few points.

If you want to experience Texas Culture, which is unique to the rest of the United States, Fort Worth would be a good visit. They have the stockyard (where they herded cow) and rodeos.

There are a variety of things you can do in Dallas. The Arts District (my fav area in Dallas) have several high-quality museums and theaters for plays. There's several other activities, such as hiking, shopping, live music, etc.

The food scene is great in Dallas. Of course BBQ is one of the most famous foods here. Mexican food is huge here as well, both Tex-Mex and authentic. Asian food is very popular here, believe it or not. We have large numbers of Chinese, Vietnamese, Koreans, Indians, and Japanese living here. You can get great food in the Koreatowns (we have 2/0 and Chinatown.

>>1296279
2 Koreatowns and Chinatown.

Kinda fucked up the typing

My company is pretty generous with vacations, but one rule that they have is that out of all the allotted vacation time I have, one week must be taken separately from the rest. So, with that said, what are some places I can visit for one week and feel generally satisfied?

I've already been to HK, Macau, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, US west coast, and most of Canada. I'm not currently interesting in revisiting these locations, I definitely want something new.

I want to avoid large countries (India/Russia/Mainland China/etc.), as I prefer to visit them in long trips.

These are places I've considered:
>Taiwan
>Malaysia
>Italy
>Portugal
>Greece
>Belgium
Can anyone vouch for these destinations? I'm mainly looking for a push in the right direction. If these places are unsuitable for a one-week trip, I am also willing to hear out other countries.

Bump.

Right now it's a tie between Taiwan and Italy. Taiwan because it's small enough and I already like pseudo-China. Italy because I've literally never been to Europe before, and I can technically knock three countries off the list (San Marino & Vatican City are technically countries).

Still open to suggestions.
>>
>>1297555
If you want to "Knock " countries out of the list, You might consider belgium. Nice train system to go pretty much everywhere. Holland, Luxembourg, France and to some extend England and germany are pretty close. (More than San marino and the Vatican state)
>>
>>1297555
Food cost in Taiwan is fairly low if you don't mind eating at like family ran shops where they open it in the first floor of their house, also night markets have pretty cool stuff(eats and entertainment) for low cost as well.

I want to live a life where I can travel as much as possible, I really don't ever want to be returning to my home country, at least for a long time, at the same time I'd prefer to have stable employment rather than having to worry about finding jobs and fucking visas and shit (I am EU though) Sounds like a dream but I know that jobs like this exist. What jobs suit this and what qualifications and experience should I go for to get them.

Btw I literally have no experience travelling abroad except for a fucking school trip to Germany so idk where I just want to travel

It's pretty easy. Speak languages. At least fluent English, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese. French and German are a good Bonus.

Have a degree in economy or something technical is a must as well.

Believe me, it will give you a life of travelling all year round and good money.

What age did you first solo travel at? And how it did it impact you?
Im 19 years old and completely on autopilot right now in life. I have saved up enough money to easily travel south east asia and I plan on doing it solo. Is this a good plan? Ive never been outside my own country.

I first solo traveled on a long trip at 23. I had done non solo trips before that that helped me feel prepared, but honestly it's nothing difficult. If you're not some crazy fearless fool, you'll be fine, and if you are a crazy fearless fool, you'll have a great time.

You haven't given us any reason to think it's not a good idea.
>>
>>1296208
I was 27 when I first started traveling. It made a significant impact because I learned how much time I've wasted doing fuck all.

I wish I started when I was your age. Do it ASAP. You might feel a little scared at first, but it's better than letting it scare you for 8 more years like I did. Rip that fucking bandaid.

26.

I kept asking and nobody was interested. One friend thought anything that wasn't a business investment was a waste of money, roommate didn't care because his only interests were getting drunk and he does that here, family is both xenophobic and afraid of flying.

It was either go alone, or never leave and I was sick of waiting.

So I've just arrived today in glorious Nippon (Tokyo), anyone have any must does while I'm here.

Hi everyone,
soon I'll go for a journey along the Australian east coast. This will be my first one alone and mostly I'm going to stay in hostels.

Do you have some advice about
1) extraordinary destinations and things to do you've enjoyed very much
2) getting to know people and having fun at hostels
3) how many days you'd recommend to visit Tasmania and the central regions (Uluru especially)?

Don't normally post here, and doubt I'll get any useful information but here it goes.

I'm going to be in Russia for a month. I'll start by staying with my friend(wink wink) in Petersburg and taking day trips around the area. (I got an international driving permit so I might rent a car to hit up some places)
After that we figure we will go to some Golden Ring cities like Suzdal, Veliky Novgorod, Pskov, Plyos.
Beyond that, we may take a trip to Moscow.

Aside from this, are there any good spots we are missing or that you enjoyed? Hidden gems, or just worthy sites, cool parks, that sort of stuff is all fine.

Just a little information about us: I'm 26, She's 24. She speaks fluent Russian. Neither of us are big partyers but we can partake in some consumption of alcohol in a more "adult" style venue.
Just stating this because in my few minutes lurking here I notice most people are traveling to find the "college kids" or "hot babes" and such. That will not be our case, I'll have the privilege of having a "babe" along for the ride every step of the way from the start.

from what I can tell, its no different than the average poster here.

The only difference is, I dont have to awkwardly sit in clubs pretending to have to have fun until some drunken 20 year old harpy with 50 previous partners sleeps with me in a drunken haze.

Anyway its not the focus of the post. You just got a little rustled that you had to go to a brothel to find someone who would touch you.
The focus of the post is actually travel, unlike the generals here which are basically just sex tourists pretending they enjoy other cultures.

>my pure virginal waifu will drop her panties on command for me

I wasn't sure whether to post this here or /adv/, but here goes..

My mom passed away recently and I've been severely depressed. I feel like traveling is a good way to suppress it since I've tried just about everything else.

I've decided to go to Ilo-ilo city in the Philippines.

I've never traveled by myself before. Last time we went to vacation, I was still a kid and it was with my mom.

I need advice. I already bought the tickets and I'll be leaving in 2 months. I'll be taking United Airlines and Philippine airlines.

I'll be there for 9 days. I want to pack light and travel with only a carry on luggage.

Can you bring more than one carry on luggage? I'm bringing my laptop which is kinda heavy since it's a gaming one and the only computer I have.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. How do I make it so that it'll work over there? I have AT&T.

Will my credit or debit card work over there?

I'm thinking of bringing 3 shirts and 3 pairs of pants as well as flip flops.

I'll be bringing my contact lens solutions with me. Will this be a problem?

You can bring one carry on and one personal item. Your laptop counts as a personal item.

Your card will probably work over there, but you may get charged a fee. Check with your bank, also let them know you're going on vacation so they don't shut your card off thinking it was stolen.

Any liquids must be 3.4 oz or smaller, that includes contact solution.

Don't suppress your feelings, don't try and run away from them. Face them, talk to someone about them. Someone important to you died, if you don't deal with those feelings they will slowly creep into every aspect of your life and start eating away at you.

Are you a qt? Because if you are just come to Cebu and I'll show you around then sell you to the druggies.
All jokes aside since you're in Ilo-Ilo, find a group trip to Isla de Gigantes, but don't expect the place to be the desert all those images imply, there's a fucking karaoke on the large island, I've never been to the city itself so I can't help you there.

If you went to Siargao/Cebu/Mactan though I can answer any question you might have.

>Can you bring more than one carry on luggage? I'm bringing my laptop which is kinda heavy since it's a gaming one and the only computer I have.
It's generally fine to bring one carry-on and one "personal item," which your laptop bag would qualify as. But ask yourself if you really need a laptop for your trip, especially for 9 days. I've done 21 days, and the only electronics I took with me were my phone and my camera.

>I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. How do I make it so that it'll work over there? I have AT&T.
If your phone is unlocked, try getting a local SIM card. Or do what I did and set your phone to Airplane Mode, and leech off the surrounding wi-fi.

>Will my credit or debit card work over there?
Credit cards are almost certain to work internationally. That is practically the whole point of them. Your debit card may or may not work, depending on whether your bank has a shared agreement with international banks.

>I'm thinking of bringing 3 shirts and 3 pairs of pants as well as flip flops.
That's perfect. Hell, you can even do with less.

>I'll be bringing my contact lens solutions with me. Will this be a problem?
So you've probably heard about restrictions on carry-on liquids. That said, generally speaking, if it's for health or medical purposes, they are usually exempt. If you're still not fully convinced, check the liquids policy of EVERY airline and airport you will come into contact with; I cannot stress this enough as there was someone who was okay to bring contact lens solution in one airport, but it wasn't okay in the next. I have no idea how contact lenses work, but if you can make do with less than 100ml/3.4fl. oz., you can carry it worry-free.
