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.

not much of a flyer here, I went on one a couple years ago and they said I couldn't get on the plane with my wheelchair

wtf.jpg

needed family help to go into plane and sit down. I was OK, knowing that my wheelchair was just in the cargo bay or w/e

Nope. They took it apart. These fuckwits took apart my wheelchair. Apparently it's standard policy. I think it's standard fucking bullshit.

Hi
I'm planning on traveling to Japan in a few months and I'm looking up cheap places to stay. It's going to be me, my girlfriend and my brother. We were looking at hostels and found a really nice one.

My question is, is it possible for 2 people to share a bed without anyone caring? pictured is the bunk beds we'll be using. My girlfriend and I are used to sharing a double bed from college days, so that's not an issue.

I'm headed to the Philippines from the US.

Do I need to show a proof of a return flight ticket out of the country when I land? Or do they just stamp your passport and let you in?

I just got back in Jan. I am not hundred per cent sure it always go like this, but I had to buy a return ticket to get there. I couldn't purchase one way from United and was told it was required.

You live in the second largest country in the world at nearly all its population (at least 3/4ths) of Americans-in-denial and Frenchies live within a mere hundred miles* of the US border. You are not fucking full. You are more empty than the vastness of Russia.

*I'm not converting this into KM because you and all the other so-called "Canadian people" (lol) need to get used to US measurements. If the US decides not to annex you (not "if you decide not to join" - decision's not yours) than you better be prepared to become a minority in your own country.

>Born in Seoul
>Adopted to America less than a year old
>Virtually zero connection with any korean culture
>Heading to Seoul by myself for a week in March.
>Afraid of being bored for half the trip.

I'm staying in a hostel and I'm pretty good at meeting people, but it is my first real international trip. I've invested in tinder plus and started matching in the area to hopefully discuss a meetup with someone who is familiar with the area.

What should I do? During the night I'll go out drinking/clubs and meals of course explore street food and all that. But besides that what does one do during the day? Walking around and looking at shops is nice but a week of that is maybe too much.

I would like to meet girls, but just general friends would be nice.

tl;dr going to Seoul first time. Speak no Korean. Want to have a good time. What do?

Why would you go to Korea to watch pirn?
>>
>>1214618
At least go to North Korea if you have to go to Korea anyway. It's an unique experience that you can have nowhere on earth. Also it's only a matter of time before the North Korean government collapses so this is basically a once in a lifetime chance to see a "real dictatorship" in your life.

For example the biggest regret my father had was not visiting east-germany when he had the chance to go and experience the Stasi life before the Berlin wall fell.

What is your perfect City /trv/?

What are some characteristic and qualifications of your perfect City. Where you can see yourself living until death?

Do any cities like this exist already?

Are any cities close to this?

I think mine would be:

>ocean warm enough to swim in at least 4-5 months a year

>no winters that ever go under 0 degrees Celsius

>not a very expensive city to live in

I live in North Hollywood which I consider to be the most affordable yet not terrible places to live in LA and I'm starting to get weary of housing prices around here.

Median housing in Santa Monica is now at 7 figures, I'd like to buy a house in Burbank but a decent one is over 800k.

If I ever decide to have kids I won't be able to afford a house if I need to pay a mortgage and bills on my income alone. I made $70k last year and I feel priced out of about 75% of this city (bars, nightclubs, housing, restaurants). My GF makes $60k and we feel trapped in our roach infested apartment.

We can afford some nice furniture and vacations, etc but as far as housing goes we're pretty fucked here. Trying to get into 6 figure territory but it's not easy in my field (architecture). Seriously considering moving.

Anyone have any ideas? I'd like to stay somewhere with palm trees and a lot to do for young, active people. Was thinking maybe Vegas or Southern Florida. My family is from Northern California so that's an option also but nothing really makes me wanna move there other than living close to family.

Hi guys,

Let's say in theory I could get a stable source of income of $750 per month(government handout).

Would I be able to live on that in Laos or Cambodia in reasonable conditions ?

I guess Thailand is too expensive for this?

yeah probably and you would be looked down upon as a parasite by people like me that actually have money

>>
>>1217865
The question is why would you want to. Phillipines is the cheapest option with somewhat modern infrastructure. Thailand is cheapest with good medical, which is an important consideration for a retiree.
>>
>>1217865
could be done in decent conditions for 200-300 per month. who knows about 20 years from now though
>>
>>1217865
Like the guy above me said the economic situation is quickly improving within SEA. As a result the cost of living will naturally rise as well. I don't know how many years you'll have to live but you need to keep in mind that the cost of living is going to go up exponentially and might go up 5-10% a year if you're unlucky.
>>
>>1217865
Laos is more expensive than THailand at the moment.
Only drinks are cheaper for some reason. (And drugs)

Have you ever gotten a bad airbnb review as a guest? Did it affect getting bookings afterward? I think I'm about to get one at the place I'm in now because I clogged up the toilet and spilt wine on my bed.

Never used airbnb before but strongly considering using it in an upcoming trip to Japan. Should I expect to have any trouble making a booking if I haven't used the site before and don't have a record?
>>
>>1217978
If you have a few verifications that should be enough to set hosts at ease. You can also send them a message beforehand describing the nature of your trip. There are also listing that can be booked automatically in which hosts approval isn't necessary.

How much does the trip to Hawaii cost? Btw I live in New Mexico
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Bring a tent and your own snorkel and you can do any island for free.
Public transport is cheap and comprehensive.
If you're in Honolulu, go to Chinatown for all your meals. Better food than you'll get anywhere in Waikiki, and cheap.

It's expensive to get to any islands besides Oahu, unfortunately.

not OP but bumping this thread. Trying to squeeze a Hawaii trip before the end of spring and want to know how much it'll cost for about 5 days from AZ.

Basically deciding where I want to spend the rest of my life in The US and Hawaii is last on this list to see before I decide this summer.

So i can just camp on the beaches there? Isn't there some kind of permit I should know about?

I spent about 220$ per week back in 2014 for two weeks on a shared apartment type hostel in south Oahu, and 3 days by pipeline on the north shore in a small family owned "hostel" for 50 per night (150 all together). I was going to go to maui and bigisland but ended up leaving to go to california. the price for the ticket there from new mexico was around 500 ONE WAY and 270 one way back to LA. keep in mind I did this at the last minute i did very little research, so im sure you wouldn't end up spending 1500+ (with food /rent and all just in two weeks) the bus was great, for very cheap ($2? ithink) you can go around the entire island and it was never very crowded ( I went in august ). Do some research check airbnb's for a cheap flat and also look into going to maui over honolulu I found honolulu to be very very very fucking touristy - it was horrendous! and eat cheap grocery store food, a lot of the grocery stores such as times and foodland have freshly bbq'd and grilled meats and poke, also spam musubi from 711 is pretty good for the price. I was pretty dumb the first week and wasted over 100 bucks on hawaiian food and burgers! + airline food.

Ever since I started flying as an adult, I've always been drinking on planes. Be it beer, wine, sake or whiskey, I would always have something alcoholic to drink with my meals (except breakfast; I'm uncouth, but I'm not a total bastard).

Reasons for doing so:
>to get the most bang out of my buck (I paid good money for those plane tickets, I'm not going to settle for water or juice)
>to try brands that are rare/unavailable in my country

Man, I'm one petty fuck.
>>
>>1216745
Being a Brit I feel culturally enforced to drink at any possibly opportunity when going on holiday. Breakfast beer is a taboo that needs to be broken at some point in one's life.
>>
>>1216745
My reason: to dull the pain of being on a fucking airplane
>>
>>1217563
This, especially if it's a LONG flight. You need something to kill like 8-10 hours if you're flying a long distance, if not further.
>>
>>1217563
I find it amplifies my anger towards other people. The inevitable beer farts are just ammo for the counterattack on long, turbulent flights.

If you don't give a fuck about being loud and talking on a plane, you can always hit on the girls next to you. You definitely have to change your approach and have some game. This is where the alcohol works in your favor.

It also works for getting your sleep on and making the stewardesses look hotter.

Hey /trv/,

I'm planning to travel to NZ over Easter. I will be flying in/out of Auckland and will have 8 days.

What is a logical itinerary? Not a whole lot of time so I'd like to actually do some shit and not spend a majority of the trip transiting places or looking at the bottom of a beer glass at 3am.

Appreciate it.
>>
Edit; Could also fly in and out of Christchurch. Slightly more expensive but $ isn't a huge concern
