Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

22 destinations that were ruined by tourists over the past decade
57a1e49ddd089549398b4ad9
Visiting Bali these days feels less and less as if you're experiencing some of Indonesia's many rich cultures.

Lines waiting to reach the summit of Mount Everest are causing serious safety concerns.

Eleven people died in this year's climbing season on Everest — and images posted to social media of huge line to reach the summit shocked many people. But while hundreds of people now reach the summit annually, many more just trek to Base Camp — leaving several tons of garbage and human waste behind. In sum: The world's highest mountain is being desecrated.

The climax of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" was filmed in Petra, Jordan. While it certainly is an impressive sight that can conjure all kinds of treasure-hunting fantasies, a lot of other people seem to have the same idea — crowds can be pushy, merchants even pushier (not to mention price gouges), and overall it can feel like anything but an escape from everyday life.

Real-life Dubrovnik is struggling against the horde of smartphone and selfie-stick-wielding tourists.

As ever-increasing numbers of celebrities, the ultra-wealthy, and even ordinary folks attend Burning Man each year in the Nevada desert, there's concern the event could be losing its way.

More people want to experience Berlin to the fullest. Rising rents and gentrification are also killing the vibe — plus, it's hard to make money from a club.

But all those fancy overwater bungalows in the Maldives are filled with tourists, not local people. The Independent reports that environmental impact is a concern, for one. And then there's the issue of climate change and rising sea levels — many of the nation's islands could be underwater before this century ends, according to The Telegraph.

Recommendations for travel?
1959-Ford-Thunderbird-Ad-02-Wish
I know I'm going to sound like a spoiled faggot but I'm literally tired of Earth. I've been everywhere worth going, done everything worth doing, and eaten everything worth eating. I know Michelin stars are for fags but I have over 100 under my belt.

I'm 35 years old and through a combination of inheritance, investing, cryptocurrency, and a decent salaried job out of college I was able to "retire" at 30. I still work but it's freelance, and the majority of my income comes from rental properties.

I've done both luxurious and decedent traveling filled with boozing and partying, as well as solo backpacking while abstaining from any substances to focus on connecting with nature and my inner self, and everything in-between.

Because of the internet, everything is boring now because the world has been connected. I can do enormous amounts of research on any place before I go, and even if I go somewhere doing almost no research, people and food are basically the same everywhere.

All people behave in the same way (except maybe blacks, I hated most parts of Africa and think it should be wiped off the planet as it does nothing but breed poverty, violence, and disease), and no food surprises me anymore. Between living on a farm in Mongolia to molecular gastronomy in Paris, I've eaten it all.

What is there to do? I can't go to the moon, or mars, and probably wouldn't want to anyways. Am I living in some kind of hell? I've explored so much that I'm permanently bored now. Traveling used to make me so happy but now I'm just like "meh" to everything.

also I'm not depressed or anything, I find immense joy in my hobbies, this is simply about traveling.

Any recommendations?

Revisiting
file
>Let's never come here again, because it would never be as much fun.

Do you ever, and how often, return to your favorite destinations?

I really want to go back to this one place where I had an amazing time, but I'm afraid it would never be as great as it was the first time. Like, it's simply impossible to replicate/relive these travel experiences. There's also the fear of overwriting good memories with far worse ones. So in the end maybe it's best to not revisit? But I'll never know unless I return.

How do you feel about this?

A thread for Australia but mainly for me to ask questions.

Greetings Australians, I will be in Melbourne for a two weeks and am wondering about transport. I'm looking at your bus system and it seems for most inner city stuff it might be faster to just buy a bicycle or scooter. Obviously I don't want to spend a lot of cash, but your rental places are really expensive to for the days I'm going to be there. Where can I buy a cheap adult sized scooter for maybe $100?
Also what are your police like with helmet laws since you guys have to wear them even on footpaths?

Is Korea a slightly more soulless version of Japan or is it just the Japanophilia affecting me?
1575194591855
I'm trying to start an argument focusing on the positives of both sides rather than boring shitting on each other. Some reasons I can think of for my bias towards Japan are being conversational in Japanese, having friends there, feel comfortable there now, seeing a bit more of the culture (although via highly fictionalized lens of manga, not even live-action TV). Not a huge history or temple dude so besides those Korea just seems like Japan with for an undescribable reason, slightly less flavor. Still a great country tho and great to have general fun with. But this isn't a blog, I want to hear your sides of the story. Please share. Pic not related.

How does one travel in areas with a foreign language?

I know a bit of Spanish and my only time out of the country was to northern México for a few months. I was surprised how almost no one there spoke any English. I got on alright but it was difficult. For example a guy I was buying bus tickets from had to explain to me that we would have to at some point get off and walk through a protest to get to the next bus. At the time I had no clue what he meant but I figured it out.

I wonder how you guys communicate with foreign tongues. An interpreter sounds expensive and lame, so it is a matter of sticking to the more culturally tourist friendly areas?

What vexes me is, what's done with the flatware and utensils afterwards? Do you call the front desk again and have the server come and retrieve it? Are you expected to take it to some central return location yourself? Do you just leave it on the nightstand for the cleaning lade to get the next day? What happens to the dishes, afterwards?

MEETUP THREAD #??? - RESURRECTED EDITION!

Regular OP here: After I came back from my own travels at the start of this year I dropped off making and bumping these threads. Managed to save some more money and will be back on the road again very soon thus have thought I should restart them. Met a couple of cool people in 2018, hopefully will meet some more in 2020.

This thread is to help you with meeting other /trv/ users while travelling overseas, lots of us travel solo and sometimes it's nice to hang out with either a local for a few hours, meet up with someone wanting to do a similar activity to you (Hiking, motorbike touring, roadtrip, partying ect) or just have a bunch of people you can go out with on a Saturday night. The choice is yours.

Alternatively, if your not travelling at the moment but still want to meet some new people you could always offer to be a guide around your own city or simply be down for having a beer at a local bar, its up to you.

To make sure your meeting up with the right people (IE: So a backpacker doesn't meet up with a sex tourist, or vice versa) best to include some details such as...

Afghanistan Wakhan trip report
CI7A1555
Sup /trv/,

At some point I promised to do a trip report of my trip to Afghanistan's Wakhan corridor and well, here it is after months of postponing. I first heard about the Wakhan through some overlanding/motorcycle website over a decade ago, and it has been nagging in the back of my head ever since, often more as a dormant idea but never entirely forgotten. The idea to visit the Wakhan again resurfaced to finally take concrete shape when a fellow countryman of mine released the movie 'Land of the Enlightened' (which I recommend), and I'd been looking for people to go with after I first saw it. Not an easy job: I have a good number of friends who were interested, but they either were working abroad, had injuries that prevented walking, didn't have money because they just purchased a house or whatever.

In the end, I ended up teaming up with a random German dude who posted in the comment section of some trip report. You may even be able to find that with some sleuthing. So without further ado, here's an Afghanistan thread.

Disclaimer: I have about 15 minutes left, so expect no further posts before tomorrow.

So, I need advice. I've just come into a bit of money, and want to spend it on a holiday to finally have something in my life worth a damn, since I'm depressed and friendless (from the UK, and yes Im white and just an average guy, not overweight or anything).

I need somewhere I can have a decent vacation on about £1000 (thats a little over $1300), with the main aim being
A) have a good time (there needs to be enough to actually do there as a soloist, or if its really likely to find others)
B) Lose my virginity, and not to a prostitute. I'll consider it an achievement if I don't have to pay for sex at 25 because I couldn't get any

Is this place full of chads or something, I don't get how you all have these amazing adventures constantly without being the most alpha out there or some shit. I recently got back from Japan trying to have the crazy and fun times I hear about but never got it, it was such a set back that I didn't even go to a soapland. I seriously don't think you guys do half the shit you say, any time I asked for help you fags went and told me "go to a bar" or "be sociable" yeah fucking how dipshits. I went to japan to break out of my normal shutin self since after 33 years I think it's finally time to shed some new skin for once. Literally just would go to some bars people mentioned or places and all I saw were cute couples and tourists none of which ever talked to me.

How the fuck do you all travel without getting severe depression as everyone around you has a bunch of fun.

Help me plan my roadtrip
1572925741437
I'm set to graduate college in early May and my parents said as a graduation present I could pick a vacation and they would help pay for it. I decided what I want to do is go on a roadtrip out west with my dad, mainly to just cruise around and experience it without too many particular goals.

I live in central Florida and my general plan is
>head North up to the panhandle
>continue due west along the coast
>make a stop in New Orleans (been there before, liked it)
>go through Texas and part of New Mexico
>go north to Colorado, spend a few days enjoying the scenery (if you know what I mean)
>head up North to Yellowstone/Grand Teton (I've seen it, dad has seen it twice, both of us love it)
>tour through Montana, particularly the main towns because that;s where I hope to move in a few years
>head back

Here are the parts I'm not decided on
>where exactly to cut north to Colorado, not sure what is worth seeing in the area south of it
>whether to go to Yellowstone directly through Wyoming or loop through Utah (never been there, sounds interesting)
>which way to go back from Montana, could be mostly direct through Missouri or could make it longer and see some of the great lakes region

And a big one
>whether to take my dog or leave him with my mom
I'd like him to experience the sights but obviously that reduces our options, not sure how many places allow dogs. Would consider making this more of a car-camping trip if we brought him.

Thoughts?

Best places to visit in the US for an extended trip
usa_sedona_2
Sup /trv/,

I have the opportunity to travel for 1 month+ within the US. I currently live in Central NY and want to go elsewhere. Things to keep in mind:

-I can't drive and don't have a car
-Budget isn't an issue
-Don't want to spend a long time in a big city like LA, NY, Chicago since I've been to all of them.
-Things I like
>music, live music
>outdoors (not interested in extended outdoor stuff like AT, PCT but I'm interested in a place which allows for shorter treks and sightseeing "extreme" nature sights, e.g. Alaska, Grand Canyon, deserts etc.)
>wildlife
>drinking
>"a sense of adventure" if that makes sense

I'll most likely be travelling by myself but might have another friend for part of it. Any ideas? Open to all parts of the US. Going outside the US isn't an option.

That special place
s-l1000
Hi guys, I'm planning a 2w travel within preferably 6h flying distance from Scandinavia.

I have traveled quite a lot the last years and have developed a taste for quality. This quality is usually found in the present moment meeting other present human beings (not boomers or zoomers or coomers or whatever). You know nothing of eachother but still there is an attraction.

Places I've liked around the Mediterranean:

Lisbon, Portugal. Worked in a hostel there before it got flooded with boomers. The bars, viewpoints and the authentic people really made it one the best times in my life.

Granada, Spain. Hippies and fresh mountain air. Nice hikes close to the city.

Athens and Antiparos, Greece. Having coffee in Exarcheia. Nomading on the Greek Islands.

Israel. Some seriously militant babes over there.

Northern africa has some gems. Enter the magic. Great food.

Where should I go?

Living in Ukraine
EFF0345B-0E63-41B6-AD99-B90446A264DE
I’m an American, and in a couple weeks I’ll be leaving to teach English for a year in a small town in Zhotomyr, about 2 hours west of Kyiv.

The program I’m going on pays well, I have pretty comfy living arrangements, and while my Ukrainian is pretty trash-tier I’m going to be put in an aggressive language program from the start. I wanted to hear from anyone living in Ukraine or has traveled there, anything like easy dishes that have easily obtained ingredients, fun weekend trips, recommendations for what to pack, or just what you found especially fun or challenging about living in Ukraine. Obviously I’ve done a lot of research on the country for my job but nothing beats hearing from people who have already been.

Yes, it's still a great place to visit.

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

For any and all of your one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If your question is specific to a popular destination (eg. Thailand, Japan, Germany, Italy, etc.), consider asking it in a relevant thread/general, if such a thread is currently active. And even then, do whatever you want, I'm not your mom.

If your question is administrative in nature (eg. visas, passports, customs/immigration, airport/airline policies, etc.), 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.

From my understanding this is only done if you are in transit to another location? Would it be possible to buy a 1 way to Beijing and then book another one way out of Beijing 4 days later? Or would that not be accepted since I would not be transiting Beijing? I went to china But it has been almost 10 years, and when I went visa free wasn't even an option, I want to make sure its possible before I expend the energy getting there.

Hey hey people !
Newfag here !
I'll be at the airport in about 2h and will fly to Berlin for a 4-5 days trip.

Thus, I've been thinking about this board I normally never visit, telling myself that you fantastic people might have some good places to recommend which are outside of the habitual tourist tour. (No places to eat, I've already been in Berlin many times and already knows where to find the good stuff)

I'll mainly be in Öst Berlin, so if you have good recommendations in this area it'll be welcomed. Please be aware that my german is rusty but my english is not.

Also, I attended my first Cat Caffee in Berlin and was wondering if there was Owls Caffee in this city (I don't want to travel to Korea/Japan for 10+ hours to be able to see a Barn Owl up close)

Thanks in advance !

I'll admit my intentions aren't entirely /trv/ related, but I'm looking at working on a cruise ship in a security role.

I had a look at the crowd disgorged from pic related while I was in Sydney and it looked mostly to be Boomers and GenXers, plus a few families. Mostly Americans judging by the accents I was hearing.
