Hey voyagers,
/trv/ is a slow board, so don't expect immediate responses. CHECK THE CATALOG – you might find threads already discussing topics you're interested in.

Before asking for suggestions, tell /trv/ about your:
>Budget
>Interests
>Level of understanding of the local language(s)
This makes it easier to give quality advice. Of course, keep your posts travel related.

For all other matters:
General culture questions >>>/int/
Politics discussion >>>/pol/
Transportation discussion >>>/n/
Outdoors-related discussion >>>/out/

Biggest losers archetypes?
Hmm
In your experience, which travelers/expats are the biggest fucking losers you've witnessed so far.

Here's my list, starting from the worst

1/ White guy in the Philippines
2/ English teacher in East Asia
3/ English teacher in SEA
4/ White boomer in Thailand
5/ Solo males in Eastern Europe
6/ Indians in Thailand
7/ Wannabe influencers who make no money
8/ Australians anywhere outside of Australia
9/ Dutch women anywhere outside of the Netherlands (Why do they all have autism?)
10/ Israeli men

I've been to every continent minus Antarctica,

Seems the highest concentration of losers is in Asia, unsurprisingly.

Western Europe has the lowest concentration of loser, also unsurprising.

Slightly surprising, travelers in LATAM are relatively chill, beyond hippies in mexico. I have a theory that even the cumbrained travelers still need basic social skills to game latinas, so it filters out some of the mega virgins who go to SEA instead.

What's your budget when traveling?
budget
Let's start a budget thread. I'm interested in hearing what other people budget for daily expenses in different locations, both long and short trips. Exclude flights to and from, and mention if your budget includes insurance or other variable costs.

I'll start with SEA. I've been here now for a year and overall I'm spending about what I did before covid. I'll average $30 US/day (in Thailand right now, about 1000 baht/day), but I budget $50/day. My expenses are similar to pic related but I pay twice as much for hotels.

Saved up Ten Thousand Dollars, how far can i go with it?
futurama-dancing
Im a 26 year old swede, ive been a wagie since i finished school and ive saved up 10k usd and im wondering how far i can go with this much money?

Before i settle down somewhere and try to start a family i want to live and "go wild".
I am tall and fit and have no problem being social and make friends easily but i did waste most of my youth in front of the computer so im basically dreaming of making up for it by travelling and partying a bit now, i have no time limit only the limit of 10k usd. I have no concrete plan and im thinking freestyling it will be more fun than meticulously planning it out. but my big goals would be visiting Mongolia and just sightsee and ride horses there. Then on to Japan because it seems interesting and i grew up liking manga so can probably have fun there too, then i was thinking of going to Thailand to party and relax at the beach, and then on to Australia and New Zealand and dive in the great barrier reef. Possibly working some low tier job to make some more cash along the way.
Obviously i would try to travel as cheap as possible, not flying but rather slowly pacing my way forward with whatever i can, cheap train bus bike walking lifting etc. I know this maybe comes off as naive and retarded but id just like some feedback on how viable this would be and if you have any tips or criticism?

Is Korea cheap or expensive?
How easy it is to get a job as an english teacher? I've heard that race matters so if you aren't white then it might be kinda hard, it's true?

Transit
Public transportation is literally only useful in densely packed and small cities. Bigger cities like Las Vegas, Los Angeles, etc can't make it work. LA has shittons of busses, yet very few people ride the bus. It's because they're too spread out.

People who parrot this line about public transportation stopping traffic problems in the US are idiots.

Most brothels in Japan don't allow in foreigners, and the ones that do are notoriously expensive - at least $400USD per hour. If you're mainly interested in cooming go to another country.

Travelers by income source tier list
peepoglasses
Here's my expert ranking of travelers/expats by their source of income.

This is not a ranking of the AMOUNT of income, but how likable the people are based on their source of income.

High Tier - Generally great people you want to meet
>Free lancers - Usually people offering some kind of digital service, generally free-spirited but still grounded in economic reality, the best kind of people to hang out with generally IMO. Downside is many suffer from inconsistent income and have to megabudget travel.
>"I just took some time off" - People who saved money to travel, are on PTO, taking time off, etc. Generally all around great people, really cherish traveling and meeting people, great vibes, normal and sociable. Downside is they don't travel for very long before returning to wageslavery. Easiest girls to bang too.
>Entreprenuers - Usually people who make a few thousand a month on some online business and escaped their 9-5 job. General chill, sociable people who just wanna experience life, often very open to going anywhere and doing anything

isn't november off-season in SEA?
also I wanted to fly with Singapore airlines because it seems premium and Singapore is an handy hub for flights in Asia but is so expensive (like more than 1500 euro), arab airlines are pretty cheap (like Emirates), it would cost 400/500 euro less.
another option would be Turkish airlines but it has long ass layovers.

DON'T Teach English Abroad; You Will Ruin Your Life
img 2
I'm a former English teacher in my 30s. I primarily taught in China and somewhat in Vietnam, and all I have to say is: DON'T DO IT!

You will ruin your career and professional life. I went back home a few years ago and I've been trying to pivot into IT, but can't because I'm considered "too old" now.

If you are from a first world Anglo country, there is no reason for you to teach English abroad; it'll only be detrimental to your career. Maybe if you're from some Eastern Euro shithole and it's all you have to make money, go ahead. But Brits, Australians/NZ, Canadians, and Americans should NOT do it. You will get caught up with the easy girls, the easy lifestyle, thinking you're making money and progressing, then you'll hit a roadblock. Then, before you know it, you're 30 years old with nothing to show. You're also essentially teaching Asian people to come to your countries and take all the high paying 6 figure jobs. JUST. DON'T. DO. IT.

I'm a convicted felon. I really don't want to make this thread about what I did, so I'll just say it wasn't any pedo shit or anything violent and I only got two years.

But the point is, probation will be coming to an end. I've always said one day I'll take a trip to Japan, and I have a few friends throughout Europe and in Australia I'd like to visit and I've heard stories about each of those places being impossible to enter if you have anything at all on your record. I don't want to do anything illegal in any of these places, in the case of Japan I just want to go to all the typical geek tourist spots. Google claimed if I try to enter and they decide to check my record and there's so much as a misdemeanor listed they will deny me entry.

Also, not so much for Japan since I'd probably just be on foot and use public transport, moreso for Europe, is it as easy to rent a car there as it is in the US and how likely am I to kill myself in a car wreck trying to get used to driving on the other side of the road?

Why is spanish citizenship so hard to get for spanish descendants?

I look Spanish as fuck, white skin, brown hair and full beard, I speak spanish as my mother tongue. I am a catholic.
Why do they make it literally impossible for me to get it, but any moroccan or somali that jumps the Ceuta fence can live there freely and get it in a couple of years?
It literally makes no sense.
I already have the italian citizenship if I wanted to go and live there, but I still dont know why they make it so hard.

Scandinavian trip
onewaytrip1
Hi guys,
We are planning little car trip through Scandinavia which will occur on start of September.
Unfortunately, we don't have much time (around 7-10 days), so we don't have much option to visit the northern parts.

I would have few practical question such as:

How "bad" is weather is in September? (We mainly plan to admire the views and field trips)
What are best place to visit?
Eventually, place to avoid?
Better to go by ferry or do it fully by a car?
Best local food to try - food suggestions are really important for me because i like to try new things.
ect.

We dont know where exactly will stay (we are planning at least 2 days in Bergen for sure) but we will probably just use booking.com for accommodation.

We are fully aware of the costs and that Norway is second most expensive country in europe, but we are +/- prepared.

This is the first outline of the map that came to mind. A lot of things will probably change, especially if you could help me with it. Apart from the main route (A), we consider possible ferry routes (B) and an alternative route (C).
>pic of map

Thank for any advice and help.

I am a Buddhist practitioner, thinking to travel there for a long time in order to perhaps pursue monastic ordination, but this whole problem with visas makes me a little bit leery. What is the best way to stay long term in this country, given that I won't have an income or any formal employment? I do have a good chunk of money.

Thx

Balkan trip
Greetings /trv/,

I intend to make a trip through Balkans and I managed to get in this route:

Sophia - 4 days (one for jet-lag recovery)
Plovdiv - 3 days
Burgas - 2 days
Istambul - 7 days
Tessaloniki - 3 days
Athens (with day-trips to Corinth and Thebes) - 7 days
Trikala (for Meteora) - 2 days
Tirana-Dürres - 4 days
Ohrid - 2 days
Skopje - 3 days
That's 37/40 days avaliable (actually 41, but the last one I intend to stay in Sofia for avoid unpredictable issues). I don't know if going to Montenegro would be logistically viable, so I accept suggestions.
Also do you think it would be safer going clockwise or counter-clockwise in terms of robbery issues?

Reverse Paris-syndrome
Hvar 2022
What are some places that positively surprised you? Since the world opened up again I've done some extensive travelling. Some places that made a very good impression on me are:

- Visby: The main city on the Swedish island Gotland. Serene, clean, no MENA, very cozy.
- Vienna: Spent most of the time in the central parts. Imperial. Clean. Great food. Beautiful parks and architecture. Festivals. Markets. Great museums. People were nicer than I had expected.
- Antwerp: Cool city. Kind people. Interesting art. Nice and calm.
- Vilnius: Very cozy city. Old town is small but the city offers enough for a good long weekend. Beautiful parks. Good restaurants. Kind people.
- Split / Hvar / Brac: Very nice port city in Croatia. The islands of Hvar and Brac are very nice. Great fish. People are kind. Felt very chill. Beautiful scenery. Felt alot better than Dubrovnik.

I have a few more places i'll add in the thread later.

Here we keep track of the ever reopening world and what restrictions still exist. We use the Kayak covid map as the basis:

https://www.kayak.com/travel-restrictions?

as it's the most up to date, and lets you look at countries based on multiple criteria. The default setting is for US citizens who are fully vaccinated. At this point, 25 countries/territories are still closed:

Bhutan
Cameroon
China
Eswatini
Falkland Islands
Federated States of Micronesia
French Guiana
Kiribati
Lesotho
Libya
Macau
Marshall Islands
Mayotte
Montserrat
Nauru
North Korea
Syria
Taiwan
Tonga
Turkmenistan
Vanuatu
Wallis and Futuna
Western Sahara
Yemen

5 are open but require quarantine:
Anguilla
Hong Kong
Jersey
Liberia
Samoa

Japan is "open" but only for tour groups.

Everything else is open, with at most a test required.

In this thread we can share personal experiences of the more practical side of things, such as what local restrictions still exist. Happy travels!

I have heard of people using fake degrees and was wondering if you guys thought it would work, I know they started cracking down on that sort of thing a few years back.

Screenshot_2022-08-09-13-22-22-1
Hi /trv/. I spent some months travelling throughout the entire USA by car, mostly just winging it. I went to a few cities, but I generally preferred smaller-medium sized towns as they seemed to have real culture. At some point, I realized that winging it by just going to whatever town was off the interstate was a bad plan, especially when I started branching off into state roads. I would end up in seedy areas, or areas that I felt unsafe in. My solution to this was to eventually use zipatlas, and I could just search up towns and cities by demographic statistics. This did not fail me a single time the rest of my journey through the USA, and I highly recommend it if you're doing what I do, and just winging it through your travels.

Moving to America

Bong here. My entire life I've wanted to live in America, I recently won enough money on the lottery to make this happen. I've always wanted to live in New York and I'm wondering if there are any other states to consider before I start taking it seriously. I'd like a city/state with good public transport and that you can actually navigate by walking and so far only a handful such as New York and Boston tick the box. Other cities like Philly can be walked but are crime ridden hellholes, California is built for cars and comfy midwest states are car or die. Is New York really the only option for this kind of lifestyle?

logistics of long term travelling?

Say you want to remain in your home country for 6 months a year, while travelling to other countries for 3-6 months at a time (each).
How would you manage this, mostly in terms of housing? Assume you have a remote job with a decent income, and do not own a house.

I'm not sure how you would avoid paying rent in 2 places at once, while still being able to... own stuff. I guess you could pay for a storage unit while you are out of the country?

Under 300 a person ideal but if it’s worth it it’s worth it. French and Japanese seem to be the specialties so I’m leaning towards that but again pretty open. Also general tips on getting into popular restaurants I guess. Pic unfortunately not related.
