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:
>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/

Tipping in albania
What's the deal am I supposed to tip in albanian restaurants? Every time I do it kind of creates a scene. I don't mind tipping because it's only like 50 cents or $1 but I just want to get the fuck out of there and not have some albo chase me down shoving junk metal at me.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
>also known as /sqt/ (Stupid Questions Thread)

For most of your one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If you want to discuss or argue about COVID-19, vaccines, or politics, take it to another thread or even another board.

The answer to most questions regarding COVID-19-related travel restrictions is "We don't fucking know."

If your question is specific to a popular destination (such as Japan, Thailand, Italy, France, etc.), check to see if there is a relevant thread before asking it here.

If your question is about an administrative or procedural matter (eg. visas, passports, customs/immigration, airport/airline policies, etc.), try to be as specific as possible. Such information may include, but is not limited to: your nationality, where you're going, any layover points, etc. These details do get missed quite often, and they sometimes can make a difference.

If you are planning a trip and would like some help, try to have some idea of what you want to do. Nobody here can read your mind; tell us your hobbies & interests, at least.

Far Northeast: Acadia, Maine, Vermont, NH.
Since this is a popular time of year, can we get a thread on the far northeast. I'm looking to take a mini road trip around these states with the main focus being Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I know it's high season with the foliage, but does anyone have any tips or recommendations on where to stay around Bar Harbor? (Looking at Ellsworth currently since prices are really high) Any trail recommendations? or fun things to do or good places to eat? (I prefer quality wholesome places, not fancy expensive stuff) Any information or discussion welcomed on the region.

Best city to monger and party for a week?
Burger here, trying to maximize my wagie 10 day vacation per year. I am a first time solo traveler and I am debating between Columbia (Cartegena, Medellin), Spain (Barcelona, Ibiza, islands), Thailand, Germany (Berlin), Poland (Krakow), or Mexico (TJ, Cabo, Playa del Carmen) as my choice of travel. Ideally I want some place with cheap and great cooming and the ability to pay someone to stay the night. I would also like good nightlife and anywhere I can maximize my WGF of blue eyes. I want to plan this sometime in March or February and realize that Thailand will probably not reopen by this point. Will any of the other options offer me the level of that experience for cheap or am I better off waiting? Also am not even sure if Thailand is the best option but it is constantly shilled here as a coomer's paradise so it seems like the logical choice. However, Mexico and Columbia seem really promising and I have a decent amount of Spanish I can use. Are the girls in these countries easy to score without having to monger as well? I put Germany on here for their FKK's which I have always wanted to go to as well as the crazy nightlife they seem to have, as well as the other Eastern Euro choices I put. Spain I put for similar reasons as Columbia and Mexico but they also seem to have decent mongering and activities to do. I want to leave the sex prison of the USA, living at home is doing me no favors and unless you are in a big city living on your own or have girls you fucked with from high school it is impossible to score in my suburban shithole. Plus these AMP's and strip clubs will charge you out the ass for mediocre cooming. Help a burger out please.

Travel Through EU on Foot
Help /trv/ I don't have much time left. I'm going on a one-way tour from Portugal to Germany, completely on foot. No public transports, not even a bike or an hotel stay. I must absolutely leave within the end of the month thus I got only 9 days for any extra preparations

I'm bringing 500 euros cash because I can't use my cc once I get going and I don't have much on my account anyway, but at least I already got a lot of camping and some survival gear I can finally put to use. I'm not gonna list everything now but if necessary I will later. I expect to eat only rice and multivitamin pills for at least a month, I already have the pills and rice prepared, I added some dried almonds and powder milk just in case the pills and rice don't cut it.

The purpose of the tour is getting myself used to being out there 24/7 and move around both natural areas and urban areas during cold seasons without leaving trace and being as stealthy as possible, once I reach Germany I will settle for a couple weeks in any desolate area I can find to do physical training until I'm ready.

I expect that 500 euros will suffice for replenishing food and multivitamins for a period of at least 5 months just in case something goes wrong. No unnecessary questions, I'd rather read some advice, any kind of advice helps because I know there is something I'm overlooking but I cannot ask advice to anyone irl because I don't know anyone worthy of asking.

I already asked on /out/ since there will be a lot of wild camping involved but they were useless. I'd like to hear advice from experienced anons and this is probably the only board where I could find actual travelers.

I know the EU has generally very strict regulations against wild camping and there isn't much "wilderness" left since agriculture takes up most of the non-urban land, this kinda worries me because I have only ever camped to the beach before.

Why is Toronto so damn ugly
It genuinely has a disgusting looking public realm - underwhelming public parks, tons of bland glass high rises and low rise brutalism, and poorly maintained, diminutive looking victorian housing with increasingly unchecked graffiti, and a population that seems to love it and has really intense delusions as to Toronto being at all comparable to architecturally epic and elaborate cities like New York City and Chicago. Toronto doesn't even have the aesthetic cache of Cincinnati or Pittsburgh, in terms of it's built form. Why does Canada reward such mediocrity?

I'm not vaxxed but I'll have had a negative covid test within a day and would be willing to submit to another. Any idea if I'd be allowed out? I read you could only leave the airport if you had a specific reason to, like visiting family. Could I lie about visiting family during my layover? Would I be caught in that lie and then not let into Poland?

WWooF, Workaway and other ways to work for food and lodging

Cheap housing and food for a few hours of work 5 to 6 days a week, while having the chance to immerse yourself in a foreign culture and language? Sounds like a good deal to me.

Any of you guys have any experience with WWooF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms), Workaway or similar websites?
I only recently found out about these sites and am extremely interested in hearing what you fine people think about them and the way they work.

If you don't know, they basically connect people all over the world: those who are looking for cheap living in exchange for work, and those who are willing to take total strangers to work and live on their land for periods of time. The host only covers the cost of living and food, while the workers pay for their own extra expenses.

Acquiring a 'personal travel guide' in Asia
In a couple of months, I will travel around east asia for work related reasons (if the COVID demon permits). To China, Japan and possibly I will visit S. Korea for the fun of it.

When I travelled to other foreign countries before, I would hit up a chick to show me around, translate for me, be on call if I had to deal with a taxi, give me tips on areas to avoid etc.

The problem is that now I have a long-term GF. Are there apps or something like dating apps that aren't dating apps where I can meet people who want to meet a foreigner?
I loved the advantage of having a local (who I knew wouldn't sell my organs) on my side in a foreign land. Single lads, I'd recommend this route for your future travels. But now it seems like my golden ticket method might have expired.

Has anyone else dealt with a similar problem?

China General
Mid-Autumn Festival is on it's way. Have you gotten your mooncakes yet? They're a symbol of lunar appreciation.

Legend has it, in the ancient past, there was a hero named Hou Yi who was excellent at archery. His wife was Chang'e. One year, the ten suns rose in the sky together, causing great disaster to the people. Yi shot down nine of the suns and left only one to provide light. An immortal admired Yi and sent him the elixir of immortality. Yi did not want to leave Chang'e and be immortal without her, so he let Chang'e keep the elixir. However, Peng Meng, one of his apprentices, knew this secret. So, on the fifteenth of August in the Chinese lunisolar calendar, when Yi went hunting, Peng Meng broke into Yi's house and forced Chang'e to give the elixir to him. Chang'e refused to do so. Instead, she swallowed it and flew into the sky. Since she loved her husband and hoped to live nearby, she chose the moon for her residence. When Yi came back and learned what had happened, he felt so sad that he displayed the fruits and cakes Chang'e liked in the yard and gave sacrifices to his wife. People soon learned about these activities, and since they also were sympathetic to Chang'e they participated in these sacrifices with Yi.

Bored of Earth
34 year old fi bro here, got lucky with a tech based venture capital start up 8 years ago and retired 3 years ago. I've travelled to about 40 countries and I'm officially bored of this planet.

1) The deliciousness of food reaches a limit, and overtime it all tastes the same. Between 3 star michelin rated restaurants to hole in the walls to places only locals know, it all gets boring. You reach a point where food only tastes good when you're hungry, and at that point anything is good.

2) women, like food, have the same qualities. Over time all pussy blends in together, as do all women. I'm basically gay at this point because between prostitutes (high end ones) and tinder girls and girlfriends, I've fucked over 200 women. It really gets old, especially when you have the option to pay $1000-2000 for a high end escort whenever you want. Also, normal girls can sense when a guy has been laid a lot which makes you even more attractive to normal girls, so it has sort of a snowballing effect.

New York on a tight budget
Hello there anons, I'm an european in his mid 20s and I'm thinking of visiting New York in the fall, say in early October.
First of all I'd like to get your opinion on whether that'd be a good time to visit (both season-wise and coof-wise) and if it's reasonable to even visit on a budget of say ~200$ a day (both for a room and living expenses) expecting to eat alright, move around, and see some sights without doing any crazy shopping or luxury dining/experiences and considering that I don't care much about the nightlife and alcol/drugs/bitches or if itsn't what amount would be instead.
Also, what areas would you recommend to look at booking a room in? In my case it'd be retarded to stay at some big pricey hotel in some tourist trap of an area when I'll realistically use my room just to keep my things/sleep but at the same time I'd like somewhere clean and safe and not too far removed from the classic points of interest such as Manhattan.
Also general tips about staying in New York I guess? (maybe where to eat well for cheap, what to do/see other than what you'd find on a shitty list, where to meet locals, how to not get robbed etc.)

Vaccine and Traveling
So, I've bought some tickets to travel abroad in December, and for reasons beyond my control, I'm going to have to get the vaccine. I'm thinking about just getting one and then getting the PCR test done before I leave, because the country I'm traveling to requires it.

So, which one should I get? Which one, that is, is least likely to make my heart explode or grow a third eye or some other shit? I've been totally disconnected this entire pandemic and have done zero research on the topic, so any help is appreciated. Serious answers only, please.

veery hopeful RTW: retrospect
gday, few years ago I wrote short stories of the trips I took through a number of countries on my way to 40030 km by bicycle. Decided to translate them into English and post here since it was my great joy to make a few threads here back in the day.

Few bits of background information from the original thread:

>Two months ago had a chance to choose redundancy at work. That gave me an unexpected freedom and some extra money- not a lot by any means. Decided for the better or worse that this might be my best chance to cycle around the world. So I set off from UK two weeks ago with the route pictured in mind and a goal of 40 030 kms from that by bicycle.
>Did a 23 day trip across Europe 2 years ago with around 100 euros (2400km by bike and 2400km by hitchhike) and shared it here afterwards. That plus some other cycling trips around the edges of Europe is the extent of my experience.

NYC for a week
Going to NYC for the week of Thanksgiving. Looking for areas to stay and things to do. Price is $200-300 a night or so for a room. Catch is I want it to be along the parade route so we can watch it. This will be my first time to NYC and always had a hate towards the city but now I'm interested in everything it offers.

We will probably go to several museums like The Met, Museum of Natural History, the Morgan Museum, Guggenhiem, and MoMA. I'm sure I'm missing other interesting ones.
We will also probably want to check out some of the cool building like WTC, Chrysler, Empire State, Rockefeller, Grand Central, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island.
We will want to see Central Park and I've heard Washington Square is cool also.

I'll be posting on /ck/ and /fa/ due to my interests in those things. On the /ck/ side we are hoping to do Per Se or Le Bernardin. Probably will check out Jacques Torres and Fabrique. Also would like authentic italian or chinese food. New York pizza and those types of things. For /fa/ I bought a pair of Enzo Bonafe oxfords in Stockholm, so looking for places around that type of style in NYC. I also will need some Hestra peccary gloves repaired because I don't have anyone worth their shit locally to get them fixed.

Amsterdam tourism
I am thinking of going to Amsterdam with the bros. The problem is that they seem to be too focused on the weed and the nightlife. What are some interesting places we can visit so that we don't waste the trip like that? Note that I am not interested in the brothels, and museums seem kind of a waste of time (in the sense that they rush you and you forget the stuff that you saw)

Grifting Vaccine Passport?
I have a friend in France. She wants to travel to the US to meet up, but is very concerned about the vaccine and doesn't want to get it. What's the best way to grift the system and allow for travel? Religious exemption? Doctor exception? Faking a vax card? We've been planning on meeting up for a while now and I saved up my vacation time to show her around. Any Frenchies here with any ideas?

Won't be able to come back to USA
Biden passed some law where you need to be vaccinated to return to the USA, so when I leave for Mexico because I don't have high hopes for where America's headed - I won't be able to return. On a metaphysical level I know my time here in America is done for now, but my family's here. It hasn't really settled in yet. Travel related because obviously it effects all Americans who travel and wish to live overseas.

I want to spend the winter (dec/jan/feb) somewhere cheap. I have a little project (game) i've been working on that i'd like to finish, so the idea is to rent an AirBNB for a month, work on my project during weekdays and check out the place + surroundings on the weekends. I reckon i'll move places once a month to keep it fresh.

What are places that aren't too cold, safe, cheapish and have 3 month visa's for tourists (im from a good european country)? I've got both of my 5G Bill Gates doses, so that won't be an issue.

I've looked at georgia, which ticks all my boxes, but its a bit too cold for me. Thailand would've been my first choice (not interested in degeneracy, but weather and prices line up with what im after) but i'm not too keen on jumping through too many hoops and the country honestly seems destroyed atm.

Currently my gaze is on central america. Mexico maybe? How are the other countries there? Effectively i suppose im looking for expat places i suppose.

Thailand General

Foreign visitors that are permitted to enter Thailand from approved countries are required to have the following:

- An approved Certificate of Entry (COE)
- Proof of a COVID-19 insurance plan that covers the entire duration of their trip with a minimum coverage of $100,000
- The Thailand Plus app in order to show a QR code upon entry
- Arrangements to stay at an Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ)

Is anyone planning to go?

With the US opening up to EU tourists I was thinking of finally fulfilling my naive, romanticised imagination of classic americana. The most obvious destination would be Texas. Or is Texas in reality a huge meme? Maybe I should rather try to go to Montana and Wyoming?

As a child born in the Soviet Union and absorbing massive amounts of American media during the 90s it's rather normal to be fascinated by American culture. I already have been to NYC many times and once to SF. I am not really interested in LA and Chicago seems a bit dangerous at the moment. So I've chosen my next "theme" of the trip to be more rural and outdoorsy.

Any suggestions regarding my trip for next year? In search for true americana. Thanks in advance!

PS: Obviously I am going to buy a cowboy hat and rent a pickup truck.

Im moving to New Jersey for tech school ( don't ask why, I just need to get away from my parents and college is not a good fit for me ) anyway I've never moved before or lived on my own and im from the midwest with little experience of city and east coast life. Do you guys have any advice on what I should do to prepare? Budget isn't a huge problem as long as not out there expensive and not hood tier poor. I have a lot of work experience from my childhood so don't think it would be to hard to get a job. any advice is welcome on moving to the east coast and if any of you live in New Jersey id like to know your thoughts as well.

Places to visit in December
So basically I just turned 20 and have been saving up money for the past year to do my first solo travel. December seems like a good option since I have 1 month vacation from uni. I initially planned for vietnam combodia, laos (mainly viet). But after hearing about state of travelers in vietnam, im afraid it wont be worth going.

I dont want to do america or europe since it may be too comfortable, and I'd like my first solo to be somewhat a new experience. Any other recommendations? 20-30 days. I would prefer something thats scenic, little bit of a party scene is fine. Probably in Asia or Africa.

Looking at the available countries out there seems like it would be fairly easy to get and live in for a bit. Only ever been to Seoul a long time ago so doubt anything I have in mind is not relevant. Thinking doing 1 month in Seoul and burn the quarantine there, then 1.5mo around the country and islands. I don't exactly care about hookers/sexpatting, just looking to be outside the country for a bit. I get it's about 1k to quarantine, but not a huge issue given how cheap the rest of the country seems.

Anyone been there recently specifically from the US? Mostly looking into what the vibe is around the bigger cities to the south and maybe some of the mountain areas.

Dream Trips
What are the trips that you dream about, but haven't been able to go on because of time/budget/safety/whatever. I've got three that I've been fantasizing about for years but haven't been able to do.

Trip #1: northern Asia via the trans-Siberian railway. Start in Saint Petersburg, then go to Moscow and get on the trans-Siberian railway. Take the long way to Vladivostok by getting on the trans-Mongolian in Ulan-Ude, seeing Ulaanbaatar (always wanted to visit), Beijing, etc. and then meeting up with the trans-Siberian again in Chita. Presumably take the ferry to Japan at that point, though maybe figure out a way for a more extended stay in northern China to explore Heilongjiang (love to visit Heihe/Blagoveshchensk).

Trip #2: Himalayas, west-to-east. Start in Afghanistan, ideally probably spend a few weeks there because there's a lot I'd like to see, then head from Kabul through the Hindu Kush and into India (presumably by way of Ladakh or Pakistan -> Jamma and Kashmir, can you see why I haven't done this yet?). Then travel along the south side of the Himalayas, visit Nepal and Bhutan, and end at the eastern states of India.

Trip #3: ports of maritime East Asia: basically visit all the major port cites of East Asia in a big half-circle. Nagoya, Nagasaki, Qingdao, Shanghai, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Macau, (somewhere in Vietnam probably), Singapore.

What's the grossest thing you've eaten on your travels? For me, it was 童子蛋 (tongzidan), also known as Virgin Boy Egg. In China, they hard-boil eggs in boy's urine (preferably 10 years old or younger), similar to how they prepare century eggs or tea eggs. I was disgusted, but had to try it because 童子蛋 is considered a culinary treat to the Chinese, and it is part of the local culture. Pic related, would not recommend.

When are these fucking cunts lifting the Europe/Schengen travel restrictions!???
I need to fucking go there asap, but I don't have money to go through Mexico for two weeks so I can enter.
It doesn't make any fucking sense. There are countries not on the travel ban list that are doing worse than all of Europe combined.
But somebody like me, living in a country where it's basically gone and we're back to living like normal, fully vaccinated, can get tested up the ass as much as I need AND have family in America I could quarantine at for however long they wanted. But I still can't fucking go there.

Biden had talks with Merkel and Ursula at the beginning of August and was supposed to announce a week after they left how they were going to start the process for lifting the ban, but then not a word on it since.

I'm losing my fucking mind. When can I fucking go!!!???
