Where is some nice nature in SEA that still has WiFi and I won't get killed for being white?

Thinking somewhere in Bali or Indonesia. Or maybe another country
>>
Northern Thailand should be perfect. If you need more rugged nature Laos is next door. The foods a lot worse there though

Anxious french autist bumping the thread. I also would like to go on a solo travel. Was considering Sweden... Is that a nice good place to go ?
>>
Any a bit more unknown place outside the tourist season is fine for this. Usually the obnoxious dude weed lads travel in the season to the usual most touristy cities. The Nordic countries, Balkan countries beyond coasts and capitals, Eastern Central Europe beyond meme cities like Prague or Krakow in the early spring/late autumn and you'll be all set. Pick a city that caters your autism but of which you haven't heard much in travelling context

Japan is pretty perfect
>very quiet
>very little interaction with locals
>organized with stuff to see
>perfectly normal to be eating alone

I like it for a lot of those reasons. It's great to walk around at night too.

You're slowly convincing me to check out Pyramiden. I think Hurtigen does boat tours on icebreakers throughout the year, even on holidays.

Can I bring a rifle on the tours or is that not kosher? I know my way around a K98 like the back of my hand since the Russian captures were the only guns I could afford when I was younger.

When I went to Barentsburg a guy was on my boat with a K98, he only did the one-way journey so must of been off to do some hiking around that area.

Pyramiden settlement I think is access by armed guide only, there are around 10 or so people that "live" there, care-taking things, running the hotel and doing guide walking tours. I think that is basically so people don't steal shit (Like all the locals from Longyearbyen did when the Russians left) they are still really angry about that, as some bars in town still have Lenin statues and the like sitting around from looting.

Maybe send the hotel an e-mail to inquire about overnighting there and just how "free" you are to wander around by yourself, was a couple years ago a Polar bear broke in to the hotel and trashed the bar at night and the area is extremely dangerous, with some areas off limits to all (Including the childrens graveyard and the mine which caused the evacuation for whatever reason it was).

Re: Firearms, your hotel or accom will have a gunsafe for the one that you hire, so you can leave it there as most of these tours will pick you up from certain points in town and drive you to the harbor, so you'll only need your firearm if you go up the main valley solo to check out the fossils near the glacier or up the sides hiking.

Live in the London tube (subway) system from a full week and write an article about it. Get a job working on a cargo ship as it sails across a major ocean. See how far you can walk down the beaches of the east coast, beginning at Chincoteague where wild horses roam, camping on the beach at night or sleeping in the day, catching fish off piers. Hike through the countryside of former East Germany, staying in abandoned buildings and soliciting the hospitality of rurals. Purchase a very cheap and vacant property in some random country and camp out there. Make your way around Europe begging on the steps of cathedrals. Go offer your services as a native speaking English consultant to African or Indian scammers. Go to a popular tourist destination only to make money off tourists by selling something or other or driving for Lyft or Uber. Take out a loan and purchase a boat, sailing from where you purchased it to as far as you can go. Sell it to someone else at your destination and take a bus back home. Just a few ideas.

Canadian here, we already have Indians, Pakis, Chinese, Filipinos, Russians, and Israelis.

Make a silicone cast of it. Once you return to Canada you can mold a hard replica. Then you make a carbon fiber mold of it, get a lamb and put the hard mold on the lamb. It will grow into the mold. Then you have the original skull again using the Ship of Theseus paradox.

>>1453628
At least to me the smell of the city isn’t that bad. I smell it right from the arrival terminal, a smell reminiscent of wet highways and ocean spray.
Then as you arrive closer to the lively parts in TST or Central there is not one single second of your trip when it smells “nothing”. Outdoors is either a mix of sewage/food/exhaust gas/cooking (good and bad) smells/wet market stalls/dry seafood and Chinese medicines for the urban parts, with the aroma of fresh coffee since there are so many artisan coffee shops. Or mold/monsoon/wet dirt/decaying vegetation in the natural parts. Indoors (malls) is usually a mix of cosmetics/world cuisines/indoor perfume. And you know right away if there is a wellcome or a park’n’shop selling durian somewhere in the belly of the building.
But after all that’s what the name of the city is about.

And I agree that mainland has worst smells otherwise. Default smell is air pollution that reminds me of an electronic appliance’s adapter that remained plugged in for too long and starts to overheat.

Hey guys. There is a thread about beggars in Biarriz, but it has been archived, so here is another one. I was robbed by a bastard who was living at the beach with a few other worthless drunkards.
> very young (17-20)
> blonde messy hair, tanned skin, lanky and skinny
> looks like retarded alcoholic, can't even walk without shaking
> wears white T-shirt and red shorts
> can often be seen with his alcoholic mom
Police doesn't give a shut since this asshole is homeless. He robbed me 3 days ago (haven't seen him since) and I'm leaving tomorrow. I asked one beggar if he knew his whereabouts and he said that this little piece of Fresnch shit had left to Bayonne
I know that Bayonne is less tourist-orientiered than Biarriz and there are more homeless bustards. PLEASE if anyone has seen him in Bayonne, let me know. Some basic information for police report would be great
I know there's a slight probability that anyone will reply, but let's give it a shot

Hard hat made out of hard hats, in Kuwait.

No idea.

Thinking about going to Liverpool for a couple days or so, apparently there has been an increase in tourists there. Any advice? Things to do etc.
>>
Albert Dock is a major area to go to. It's a pretty cool place with a bunch of stuff to do.

There is the Terracota Army here until October if you can get tickets/if you are here.

The Baltic Triangle is fantastic these days. Baltic Market is a great street food market, ghetto golf is a fun game to play while getting drunk, lots of good bars if a little hipster-ie.

Bold Street is great, full of restaurants, vintage shops, bars, cafe's, etc..

Nightlife is really good if a little too busy at the weekend. Places are cheap and most bars are small/medium sized so you usually want to go to 3/4 places a night. I would suggest Some Place, a cool absinthe bar. Got a green light above the door otherwise it is pretty easy to miss.

Anything else you were thinking if doing?
>>
I've been living in Liverpool for two years and honestly it's a pretty meh place for British tourism unless you really like the Beatles.

Anyway, Frederick's is nice if you want a chill bar with live jazz. Bold Street is great for food but there's a little Korean/Japanese place called Dongs that is surprisingly good. Ran by an old Asian couple.

Baltic Market is neat and lots of art galleries like Fact and Tate if you're into that.

>What is the best time of year to visit Florida for theme parks? Both for having weather that's not too hot/wet and for times when the parks aren't super busy with huge crowds and lines everywhere. I'm currently thinking either April or October.
Feb is the least rainy, nicest coolest and driest humidity both. Least amount of mosquitoes.
Avoid 3 day holiday weekends (so no MLK birthday),and it's good. Jan-Feb-Mar is when kids are in school, so least crowds in general. There are some weeks far from school holidays that are pretty solid like another said, early Nov.
When they need more visitors, they typically run Florida Residents specials...and those are the months it might happen.

The next protip is to be there when they open and experience a couple hours of full bliss emptiness far from the entrances. Go home to your hotel room heat of the day, put the feet up, nap, swim, and come back closer to sundown as others are leaving for dinner, is another protip. Stay through the fireworks.

Is traveling alone anormal, /trv/?
I just realised my lifelong friends don't care to do anything at all but watching sports events on their couch or playing single player videogames. Alone. In their own houses. Or chatting with random people over the internet, therefore not doing anything during the day and most of the nights of the week.

Except this is not the life I have chosen.

So, I ask you: is traveling by train possibly, alone, something that lonely losers would do?

Again no. We live in a time when people need to get where they're going to get shit done and nobody gives a fuck.
Also get new friends.
>>
It's not most people's choice but it's not wrong or strange. Trains are easy and perfectly fine on your own. Mild irritation with not having anyone to watch your bags while in the bathroom is about as bad as it gets.
Plus, you go where you want and don't have to spend your time/money on someone else's plans.

I travel alone exclusively. It's way more enjoyable than traveling with family and even a gf and has really helped me improve my confidence and independence when I've returned home from my travels.

Only go for the consulate or the official visa center, stay away from any firms. Check the embassy site on how to apply.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, yeah I took it just with my phone. It is beautiful there. Kind of higher elevation which is why I asked about his condition. I don't think my mom who is only slightly older would make it up the trail but it isn't really that difficult and there were some older people going up. I didn't spend a whole lot of time there because I had a long way to go but I definitely want to go back. Also as the other anon said yellowstone is probably the best park out that way.
