http://www.wheretoskiandsnowboard.com/ is a great site. have a look there. Livigno is inexpensive and excellent for beginners. Eastern europe is even less expensive.

Austria's an option as well, but certain to be more expensive. All of Hungary's neighbouring countries actually have worthwhile mountain areas as far as I know, but landmines may be an issue in the Balkan area.

Just in Reykjavik, or can you get around the country a bit?

Anyway, go to the Penis Museum because it's a penis museum.

Took my wife to dinner at link below, it was very good and swanky but expensive. But then, everything in Iceland tends to be expensive.

Have you been there? When I was in Iceland I chose to not go there because people told me it was overpriced for basically just two rooms with conserved animal dicks.

>>1066499

Try to go to one of the public baths. The Blaa Lonid (Blue Lagoon) is fucking super expensive and you have to register online to buy a ticket but there ar elots of very nice baths directly in the city. I highly recommend visiting one, it's a very different experience than in other places, especially the hot pots.

As you might have found out already I'm a budget traveller, if you are too I recommend to go to the (only) camping in the city. It's a very nice place. Many people spending their last day in the country stay there and leave their left-over food and gas cartridges for everyone who might need some (so if you might need some of that for free its worth a night)

If you might want to travel a bit outside of the city (on a budget again) hitchhiking is very easy in Iceland (unless you're in some place where no car ever even drives by the whole day), people are VERY friendly.

How is hitchhiking in SEA? Anyone done something like that over there? Is it dangerous? Is it necessary to learn the local languages?

I've hitchhiked in Europe and the Middle-East. Is it comparable with hitchhiking in the Middle-East ?

Hitchhiking is very good (almost Middle East tier) in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, pretty bad in Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.
>>
Why hitchhike in countries where you can travel the width of the country for 10 bucks?

Also, hitchhiking in the western sense if basically unheard of. If a local flags down a ride it is expected that they will pay something.
>>
>>1066928
The reason why I'm hitchhiking is only partly the low cost of travel. I really like to meet locals in a not economic/touristic context and hear what they have to say, how they like it there, what they dream of doing, how their world view is different from mine.
Plus you can get on a much more intimate level. For example: in Iran a lot of people asked me to join them for dinner, to meet their families etc.

Also I figured it's kind of unheard of. Same in the middle east. But that doesn't always say everything i hope.

Hey fellow travellers, I've recently inherited a small piece of land and without going into details, I've considered converting it into an off the grid travel destination.

My goal is to have a couple dozen tiny homes / cottages, scattered over 30 acres of land with a focus on communal vacationing. All of the cottages would be basically cabins, no running water, limited electricity but augers for heat and outdoor natural showers / toilets at at least half the spots.

I know I'd go if somebody offered this, but I can't help but wonder if I'm just being stupid. Ignore the location etc, what could you suggest that would make it an interesting destination for you, as a traveller?

Well I have always loved that idea. But keep in mind people won't want to pay to be somewhere without running water. Depending on the state the location is in you could collect rain water and naturally filter the water. Every cabin should have its own toilet and stand up shower at least.
>>
>>1066596


true, and thank you. the place I have is surrounded by campgrounds that sell out for most of the season, so generally people are comfortable with a less glamorous lifestyle here I suspect.

These are what I was thinking about for outdoor showers / tubs at some of the cottages, and a common room in the centre of the property, like a campground.

It'd be interesting to know how much the need for private toilets would impede people
>>
>>1066604
Okay I understand a little bit more now by what you mean. Like a campground. I thought you meant like a self sustaining outdoor motel kind of thing. I'm sure that will work if there are other camping spots around that fill up fast, not a shabby idea :)

I'm an going with my girlfriend to Vietnam for the first time this summer. Her parents are from Vietnam and her dad still live there, so we have planned to live with him, and her sisters, for three weeks.
Now I was wondering, what is your experience with Vietnam? I have heard that the customs at the airport is terrible and that you have to slip them some extra money, is that true? How high is the risk that you will fall sick? So just wondering if you have any general advice.

That was not my experience, had no problems at all. Maybe avoid looking like a dirty hippie drug smuggler when you arrive...

>How high is the risk that you will fall sick?

You will likely get a case of the runs, depending on where you go you'll need to think about the risks of things like Malaria and Hep, etc.
>>
>>1066400
>I have heard that the customs at the airport is terrible and that you have to slip them some extra money

I have flown to HCMC and Hanoi, and never had that experience. I can't imagine it even happening at the airport because the border part at least is pretty professionally run.
>>
>>1066400
I'm flying to Vietnam for third time now, and customs are fine, people are friendly, its all lies.

Things to look out for:
- Lizards in bed
- Only take official taxi or prepare to pay up double if not tripple
- Exchange money in legit gold shops, not at some market gold shop. Reason: high chance they will slip in some counterfeit bills with real ones and you wont even know.
- Avoid alleys and calm streets. High chance you'll get jumped and brutally robbed. Just stay on busy roads, shouldnt be hard.

Other than that, its a great and safe country. Have fun, dude.

i dont understand why people care how bad the service is...
at least it's not domestic air china.
the seats still have ashtrays and the plane rattles and flexes in slight turbulence. All you really need is a seat and a functioning bathroom.
Im pretty sure they give you free booze on board. i could be wrong.

I'm visiting Orlando with family and I'll be in the area for another week or so.

So far we've done a bunch of tourist trap type shit and I'm not really enjoying myself. My brother and I are in our 20s.

what are some fun things to do in the area that has as little crowds and tourists as possible.

>Also what's a good idea for new years eve?
Downtown Orlando is a major populated city dude. You find a restaurant/club with an event that looks good for you, whether a rooftop view, or great prix fixe menu for the night, pay now for the RSVP. The last Sunday paper would have been a good place to sort that out with ads for their night. Maybe you can google within the papers now or visit a restaurant page for info.

The best show in town will be Epcots fireworks of course, but yea, crowded. Downtown Orlando itself has clubs, concert venues, and so forth. Myself? I'm seeing Ralphie May over in Punta Gorda, FL which hsa a pre-party and after-party in a cute walkable historic district filled with lights $100/for all. Do you have a car? Orlando is rough without a car (as is all of Florida), so your choices get limited to suburbia, wherever your hotel/house happens to be located in the huge sprawling metropolis. If you're a drinker, maybe consider getting a cheap hotel near your plans, to walk/taxi to/from it for your brother and you, and use public transport the next day?

Daytime fun is kind of outdoorsy state parks/national parks, springs, museums, historical areas, and some of the older restaurants still in existence from way back. Again a car is needed to explore much, but youre within an hour from either coast.

It's Orlando, so every place you go that is worth a damn will have at least a few tourists. It's unavoidable.

In terms of theme parks, there is one somewhat relevant small park named Fun Spot America. It has two locations: Kissimmee (south of Orlando) and International Drive (in Orlando across the freeway from Universal). Go to the I-Drive one. Up until a few years ago it was a standard arcade/go-kart place, but it recently expanded to have actual rides, including two decent mid-sized roller coasters. Their wooden one is the only one of its kind in town.

The main benefits with Fun Spot is that it is cheaper than the heavyweight parks and tourists outside Florida don't know about it, so it tends to not be AS crowded. It's open later at night, as well.

Well actually I guess it doesnt matter, but try to get tickets from someone who works there, they'll either give you a nice discount or even let you in for free because they're allowed to do that
also, year passes are overrated and not worth in my opinion, Dland loses its touch after the 3rd time

Getting married in 2016 is a super bad idea.
There will be cheating at minimum and please do not make another human to be raised by a single divorced mother.
We have way too many of those as it is.
Basically , just pls stop.

Hello /trv/
I'm planning a short trip to Reykjavík this August in celebration of graduating University.
As I'll be going there alone, I was wondering if any of you knew of websites where I can talk to people who live there already, and potentially meet up with them.
Any other general suggestions on what to do whilst there would also be appreciated.

Interpals is a great tool for meeting people from the locations you're interested in going to.

A lot of people use it as a dating site which is unusual but not unwelcome, great for setting up qts ahead of time.

Sounds good, I'll have a look into it

Couchsurfering you can even stay with a local.

How are eurocucks so good at spotting Americans? I am never called out for being American despite my terrible French accent and people ask if I am Spanish or Italian because I am a little dark from being a quarter Mexican and a little Sicilian, but my white American friends who are white instantaneously get mocked and harassed wherever they go.

I typically wear sambas and slightly more fitted clothes than what Americans do but what makes them stick out like such sore thumbs?

even without hearing them speak i can pick out euros pretty well and can often even id their country. facial structure and clothing tip off pretty well, though i can't name any specific cues i use.
>>
>>1065676
i would say bone structure and looks

if you had a pile of pictures and told me to separate americans and europeans, it'd be pretty easy imo
>>
I can always spot Americans in a number of ways.

-Americans usually have straight white teeth (this applies more to the younger generation)
-Americans are loud talkers
-Americans have a distinct accent and way of speaking English (Around the world everyone grows up hearing it in music, movies, tv etc)
-Americans have more bland facial features because they're usually mixed-up Europeans genetically (I don't mean this in a negative way, Americans are often better looking)
-Americans usually dress more casually and wear bigger sized clothing for their bodies
-Americans wear tennis shoes A LOT, and often they're bright white

In an attempt to live a location independent live, we (a bunch of explorers) created a “blogmap” of Europe. This map is packed with the most unique things to do and see across the European continent. I may only hope that this map is an inspiration for the more adventurous traveler among us, I bet there’s plenty of things you didn’t knew about yet. Would love to hear what you think about it or if something is missing :D http://broscene.com/unique-travel-inspiration/
