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.

Happy traveling! P.S. Do not post nsfw content on this board.

Have you ever been to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum? What's it like? I've seen videos of the lobby with the North Tower's antenna, but nothing else because you're not allowed to film. What's there? I won't be going to NYC anytime soon.
>>
When I visited NYC I bought a city pass (go ahead, tell me I'm not a real traveller, but that was a good way to save money while visiting places on our own) and that museum was included.

We lasted like 15 minutes. Too much drama and shit. Don't get me wrong, what happened there was an awful tragedy and I honestly feel bad for the victims and their families, but I don't see the need of exposing a dirty shoe of someone who suffered the attacks.

Also, everyone knows 9/11 was an inside job.

NYC is absolutely amazing though.

Has this ever ACTUALLY happened to anyone here EVER!? What kind of mass hysteria takes place? Do people actually follow directions and get their mask on or does everyone start yelling?

If not then discuss any other kind of public air travel situations inside a plane, engine failure, sitting on the runway for 6 hours. Whatever.

I don't think it's made me more racist but it has made me dislike certain nationalities a lot more. In particular the French who I now see as selfish, loudmouthed, arrogant, and really stupid people.

Old thread died so I'm starting a new one. I'll start by asking: what are some nice cities in Europe to spend some time in that WON'T be fully booked for July already? I've tried finding an apartment in some of the bigger cities in Europe (Budapest, Prague, London, etc.) and they're all booked for a large amount of days.

Any less known but equally beautiful cities that won't be booked to hell for July/August?

Sure, that's a given. It's not really trying to meet somebody else's expectations (i do appreciate my kinda carefree way of doing things), i just want to hear other ways of thinking about the topic, other mindsets. Who knows, maybe i can apply this "see things" way of traveling to my future trips and have more fun?

I would guess it's their main residence. For registering purpose or so. Probably they aren't there but somewhere else.

So I'm taking a solo trip to Toronto for 4 days. The only major plan I have to do is visit the Hockey Hall of Fame Mueseum, and get in 1 hour of running each day I'm there. I'll be staying in one of the small suburbs called Riverdale apparently (no reference to Archie comics)

So two questions, How should I handle money, Should I bring like 300 US dollars and just have them exchange it when I get there?. Are their places in the airport (toronto int'l) that exchange currency? I'm sure there are..just checking...

Also, if I'm not doing any of the tourist spots, and traps, think I could reasonable spent all 4 days there under 300 dollars USD?

Last question is should I turn off my cellular data for my phone while I'm in the great white north?
Any of you /trv/lers around the Toronto area for a meet up and a glass of wine/beer?

>>1280138
Have you never traveled before? Never ever exchange money at the airport. Do it before you leave for the least hassle. Canadian exchange rate is quite good now.

There aren't a whole lot of tourist traps anyway, Toronto is just a big city. You'll be entertained decently just by walking the downtown and harbor-front, but 4 days is too long if you don't have specific plans.
>>
What are you into?

Queen West from Yonge St. until Spadina isn't what it used to be... all the cute boutiques have been replaced by chain stores. Walk further West, get into the area around Ossington, lots of cool spots around Parkdale as well. Some cool bars in that area: Reposado Tequila Bar on Monday nights is pretty hot, good DJ as well.

Make sure you hit Kengsington Market. Especially during the Summer. You can spend an entire day there on various patios drinking beer, people watching, etc. Aim to do this on a Sunday as they close the streets to cars and its basically a big ass party.

If you want fancy rich person shopping then Yorkdale.

Art Gallery of Ontario is a great stop, truly world class. Make sure to check out their collection of Group of 7 (Canadian Impressionists... iconic landscapes)

If you want to get all Touristy then hit the CN Tower.

Absolute must do as well is Harbourfront Center (big art collective, open studio tour) and you MUST MUST MUST go to The Distillery District. Cool shops, cooler bars, artist studios, etc. Always events in the summer.

Easy to get around in Toronto, but a day-pass for the TCC for unlimited bus, streetcar, subway rides. Subway and streetcars will take you everywhere you need to go.
>>
>>1280481

That is supposed to say rich person shopping Yorkville... stupid auto correct.

Yorkdale is just a big dumb mall, avoid.
>>
Also Riverdale isn't a suburb, its a neighbourhood... East of Yonge. Close to Distillery district. You will be close to the Beaches neighbourhood as well. It can be fun.

Why are people in Paris so rude? I'm Japanese and went to a restaurant. The staff was really really unpolite and not respectful. Also he put me in the most ugly area of the restaurant and said that this is the corner for Asians. Why so racist?

If I go to rural France, are people friendly there?

Planning a trip for the end of Europe's tourist season with a sizeable group.

Considering either Sicily, Budapest, or Croatia.

I really like Sicily, but I heard that there are too many migrants. Is it even safe there anymore?

Redpill me, anons, and give me more info when possible. Also tell me of the best points of interest, even those off the beaten path, because I know that Siracusa is pretty (did I spell that right?), and Palermo is awesome. However, I only know that Croatia has lovely beaches (Split), and Hungary is very nice.

Is the stereotype of the "Digital Nomad" warranted?

I am a designer and I want to live in Chiang Mai for a while to experience it and save some cash. But every single Nomad vlogger I have seen seems like a total loser. Basically, a bunch of beta web devs that live on a shoestring and date Thai girls (whilst slating Western women) and claiming that the lifestyle is incredible.

I want nothing to do with these clowns. I don't want anything to do with co-working spaces, drop shipping scams, "nomad summits" or to be any part of the community whatsoever. I just want to work abroad for a while, enjoy the experience, make some cash and come home.

Any remote workers here with experience of Chiang Mai? Is it completely full of these insufferable tools? Advice in general for working whilst travelling and just doing your own thing?

Is Thai pussy really THAT good?

>>1280432
no and theyre not even as attractive as thicc western women but they make up for it. the difference is that western women are taught they dont need men and they really dont at all due to reasons i wont go in to because itd make me seem like a neckbeard. thailand still has a culture of scarcity and the women still work hard to keep a good man.
>>
there are sure a lot of them, but in concentrated areas. they hang together, thankfully. avoid nimman and especially the area around Corner Bistro in huaykaew, avoid farang bars and clubs like the plague, make a lot of thai friends that speak english but aren't associated with/don't like DNs (they do exist). there are some venues there deep into my trip that had 2-3K people and not a farang in sight. There are plenty of good areas to live where there are no DNs. I'm not actually sure if there are any legit expats in CM or where they would hang out, maybe old city or at bars around the night bazaar. Make sure you have your business shit together BEFORE arriving and a structured schedule or you will stagnate and do nothing, because the place is full of rather excellent distractions.
>>
the good thing about DNs is that they don't seem very adventurous and weren't shitting up even the slightly more obscure places i went to.

Anons,

doing a small roadtrip through Ireland next week.

- Landing in Dublin at 11 a.m.
- 1st night: Spanish Point
- 2nd night: Killarney
- 3rd night: Cork
- 4th night: Dublin

Need some tips:

1. Which road to go from Dublin Airport to Spanish point? M7 to have Cliffs of mother on our way? Or is M8 better?

2. Anything between Dublin and Spanish Point that we should see? Preferably close to the motorway.

Anyway, first time abroad? Sure you'll be grand.
