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.

I know that feel OP. I have been working full time since 22 and ten years later I have $300k saved but have lost all interest in life. I would travel but Im a tired old wagecuck and the thought of being put back in the box after just a year of freedom sounds sadistic.

You and OP took one poorly planned trip that you were to autistic to fully enjoy and then wrote off traveling forever. You both sound a bit obnoxious for making these sweeping statements about human beings and the entire planet after one lackluster tourist trip.

Booked roundtrip tickets to madrid for the entire month of may, now im in the process of planning what i want to do while im there. Im thinking to travel to one or two other countries then fly back a few days before my return flight, since tickets between major european cities seem to be dirt cheap.

I dont want to be spending too much time sitting on trains and buses throughout the trip, and i want to be able to experience smaller towns and rural environments and not just major cities. Is it unrealistic to fly in to madrid, then make my way up to the netherlands, then fly back to madrid to catch my outbound flight? Never planned a trip like this so excuse me if i sound retarded.

Then dont forget to visit "San Lorenzo del Escorial" and "Valle de los caidos". You can do it in a day or two. Forest, monuments, art, good food and a lot of history. 1 hour from Madrid. I live near pic related so if you have any question just ask.

Trying to plan a solo trip to Hawaii this year.
It will be my first solo travel adventure, and my first time out of the mainland US. I'm 29, freshly single again, and I really am wanting to do some traveling before I hit my 30s and get too busy with responsibilities and stuff.

I've done some googling, watching youtube videos, and reading blogs, but I thought I'd get /trv/'s thoughts and opinions on what to do here.

Here's a little of what I'm hoping to experience and get out of my first trip:

>Length
Planning on spending somewhere between 3 and 7 days. What's an optimal amount for a first time?

>Time
No idea! Probably not winter, as I hear that's kind of the "busy" season, and I don't want to deal with families and kids everywhere.
I'd rather aim for a time of year where things are still happening, but there are more people in their 20s (like myself) visiting. Is June - September a good time maybe?

I'm contemplating bicycling through Japan, I work for a major international hotel chain and I can stay at any of their hotels for virtually nothing. Any recommendations on a route? I was thinking of starting in Tokyo, riding North, then looping South and ending in Hiroshima after stopping off in Osaka for a few days. Is it even worth it to go North or would I be better served just bouncing around the South?

Hello /trv/, I have some questions
Me and my gf want to visit japan during some festival were it is acceptable to use traditional clothing, kimonos and yukatas (is that correct?)
What are some dates where we can do this and is it ok if foreigners dress like that during those ocasions?
Thanks in advance

They don't care if you were a kimono. Idk when festivals are but I pretty sure a yukata is a summer kimono so I'm guessing they have a couple in the summer

Reposting here from /bant/
I plan on visiting the Dam later this April and I was asking questions to get a grip on what to do, where to smoke, what to see, what to buy etc.
The story so far:
>4 dudes, chill kind, not looking to cause any trouble, nor getting drunk nor getting involved in fights
>just hanging out in the city, of course we want to smoke weed i.e. provide any infos about how coffeeshops work
>not much money besides the airplane ticket and the stay at an hostel in the city center (about 5 min walk from the central station)
>don't wanna spend much money on eating, i hope 5-10 euros max for food and stuff
>spaghettibro here
>stopped doing weed last summer, too risky, wasn't worth it, and other mates stopped doing it too so said fuck it.
So throw you suggestion at me, make it rain
Will post some album I plan to smoke -hopefully- to.

I just got 3 weeks vacation after working for an entire year without any breaks. I want to spend atleast one week in a tropical paradise where i can just bask in the sun, eat good food and go snorkeling among beatiful fish and corals. I live in northern europe where its dark as night almost all day so i really need some sunbathing. Do you have any suggestions for a young guy who just wants to go alone to some sunny place and relax for a while? Got any experiences to share about doing something similar? Im thinking about french polynesia but thats probably too far away to go for just one week

Stayed for 4 weeks in Polynesia, 5days in bora bora were enough.

If you are going to fly from us, there should be a 10 h flight from LAX.

It is the most amazing scenery for snorkeling.
I meet people who were snorkeling all around the world, nothing beats polynesia.
I would also get a diving pass and go for several dives.

maybe do some basic research on the azores before suggesting it? Chirst

Op here,thanks for the replies.

I posted about going to the azores but as i read more and more about it i found out its not really warm right now, only 15 celsius average and rainy which isnt really what im after. Also the whale watching season has not stated yet so i think ill have to put it on my list of places to go, but later.

Ill take all the suggestions into account and post more when ive decided, maybe ill post some pics later, ill go in a week i think.

Thailand is off though, i joked about going backpacking and fucking my way through asia and australia and my coworkers will never let me hear the end of it if i go there now hahahah.

If you don't currently teach, have a high degree, and money. Your chances are basically nill. Why would anyone want to sponsor you for an H1B AND work with integrating you into their system, when they can just go get someone fresh out of college for 50k/yr and put them behind a desk to do the same shit. Unless you are teaching something VERY specific good luck man.
>>
>>1348620
Marry an American, get visa, move over, get teaching cert, find job.

There's no shortage of history teachers; if anything, there's a massive glut of idiots who thought "a college degree" means instant millions and that the degree field doesn't matter, so they pick easy shit like history, LGBT studies, or other "no math needed" fields.

If you're planning on teaching non-U.S. history, you will need to be very, very good, because most high schools don't teach European history. There's an AP exam for it, so the better college-prep high schools will have one year of it for juniors or seniors. Inner city shitschools won't even bother because the niggers are too busy selling heroin to each other to bother going to classes.

Fine, fine, you aren't a total waste of space. Ancient Greek History majors? LGBTQP Studies majors? Those fucktards who "major" in golf or tennis? Mostly pointless from an economic standpoint. Congrats, they can go work for an insurance company as a clerical worker -- just like they could have done without the degrees.
>>
>>1349172
The point of argument was not that those educations werent garbage to pick for future prospekts.

My point was just to refute your insinuation that math was required for it to be a good education for future prospects.
