yo

anyone have any files or links or suggestions on where to look for old lonely plant guides, circa the 90s?

old shit.

looking for se asia, and africa

if you're willing to pay money there's some pretty big used book companies, they just pick up every old book they can find, and then make money on shipping

Drop by your local public library, you might be surprised.

why on earth would you want an outdated guidebook ?

People missing the point here. Only one question matters: are the flights on the same ticket.

Yes? You will be fine.
No? Hope everything is on time.

Euro or foreigner? Generally the euro lanes move pretty fast. Always funny to see a Burger try those lines, and then be told by the officer to go to another line.

I'm Cairns anon, and my flights were on the same ticket. I even called the airline before travelling to ask if i'd make it since i didn't choose the flight time. When i missed the flight the staff just shrugged and said it was weird i was given only an hour between.

this

if your flight is on the same ticket the airport is obligated to wait for you. if you booked two separate flights then tough shit.
>>
>>1312797
They are not obligated to wait, only to get you to your destination. If you are running late, they will decide whether it's cheaper to wait for you or to book you on the next flight and possibly send you to a hotel overnight.

Yes, you're as good as dead. There are strictly no Arabs whatsoever in Israel. Not even mizrahim. If you have the slightest hint of a tan, you'll get escorted to the West Bank immediately.

What do you think Israelis look like? Also you are aware that arabs make up a large amount of Israels population and are generally treated pretty well for being a minority.

Israelis are Arabs. With some slavic genes mixed in from diaspora.

The US does not want to see a popular uprising against the Thai government; they'd prefer a discreet shifting of power away from authoritarianism. They are indifferent to the power of the Thai royal family.

They would be okay with seeing popular uprising against the Chinese government.

As far as the threat of foreign subversion goes, China has infinitely more to worry about than Thailand.

China doesn't need to worry about foreign subversion when they've got the Communist Party fucking everyone over and making the entire country resent the fuck out of them.

That was most likely a mobile hotspot using LTE which tends to be pretty good regardless of where you are staying, but it can get really expensive to rely on for everyday tasks.

sup /trv/,
what are good US cities, preferably warmer places, to visit for a few days during the last week of december (dec. 24 - 30)? i'll be traveling by myself (because no friends)

i've been to NYC and chicago before. is Florida or Louisiana a good option for the holidays?

or should i just stay at home and avoid busy airports and hiked up prices during the holidays?

what reasons should i give to the us immigration guy when i travel? when i went to chicago, i told them i was going there by myself, didn't know anyone and wanted to sight-see, like check out museums, and try the food there. but he wanted me to "give him something more", and i didn't know what else to say really. i was still let through (i'm canadian, but a visible minority)

New Orleans is known for it's mystical voodoo stuff but there's also a lot of music venues you can visit. There's probably some riverboat tour or some shit you can do to see some alligators or whatever.
The weather will likely be in the 50-60 degree range, so it should be cool out (it rarely gets insanely cool here in the South)
>>
>>1311452
thanks

are there downsides with traveling during the holidays?
will there be less things open (like restaurants and attractions)? things more expensive?

is it sad that i'm traveling on christmas and new years by myself (no friends).
should i delay this trip until next year?
>>
>>1312288
New Years is actually a wise time to travel to New Orleans because prime tourist season is February-July (Mardi Gras, then most of the music festivals happen in these months). There will be a ton of festivities to partake in still, but it won't be as crowded. And no things won't really be more expensive or closed, except on New Years Day and Christmas Day

Hey guys!
French dude just landed in Argentina 3 days ago.
Thanks to family I have here, I've already seen wonderfull things in Buenos Aires (Street art, Tango show, Architecture and some museum).
I'm heading to Puerto Madryn tuesday, by bus (17h by night on a big ass seat). Already got a place to stay there.

I don't have plans to tour the bay & peninsula yet, I hope to find a good deal on site.

I'd like to have a sneak peak to south (El carafate then follow the mountain back to bariloche?)

From tuesday I'll be alone on this trip but OK to share activities/travel (got my internationnal driver licence but given the size of the country, it would be ridiculous to rent a car alone for transfers...)
Any /trv/ellers on the road?
Also my spanish is so bad... Feww.

Ill be around till 09/11/17
So far so good!

Alright lads, the time for me has arrived. I'm growing up. I got accepted into law school, and will be starting next fall. I got a serious gf as well, and right now I'm working a full time job. As far as I'm concerned, this year is my last year to do some shit I've always wanted to do.

I've always wanted to go to Mongolia, but I kept pushing it off. I think the time has finally come for me to go. I've done a lot of research over the years, so I generally know what to expect over there, and I have a basic idea what to see and what to do. I'm here asking for /trv/'s help on some of the more practical side of things.

I will definitely want to go during the summer. I'm not totally interested in Nadaam, but willing to go if a good case is made. I'm leaning towards August, would that be a good time? What else would you guys suggest?

What is the best airport to connect to Ulaanbaator through? I know your three choices are generally Beijing, Seoul, or Moscow. I'd prefer Moscow, as I can visit with some Russian friends for a few days, but I've never been to South Korea so Seoul would be fine too. Beijing I'm not very interested in visiting again. Whatever the case though, price is king and I won't be too picky if I can save a few hundred dollars.

Is Ulaanbaatar worth hanging in for a day or two? I just want to get drunk in that dump one night. Do you recommend any guest houses or hostels?

Most important, I know infrastructure sucks over there, so I'm planning on taking a tour just to see some parts of the country. Are there any good ones out there that won't bankrupt me?

Just for the record, I probably just want to hang out in yurts and check out the steppe

>>
>>1311275
you asked about the railroad, so that's what I answered to.
If you want to refuse vodka, it may get literally risky to get on a train with russians for weeks.
Take a car or whatever. Hitchhiking is a good option too.

>>1311284
>>1311445

Mongols drink, but not too much (after all, most of them live tens of kilometers from the nearest shop). Still, they don't mind hard alcohol and are able to drink russian-wise. They have the classic eastern 2.5 liter beer bottles. They also make an alcohol out of milk. It has 10%alc. and tastes funny.

>>1311432
>>1311433
being assertive is important.
On the other hand, not drinking even once with them may get you into a fight. (Of course it heavily depends on who is offering that vodka. But chances are they are already drunk)
>>
>>1311445
good point, i've never been to back country china, was thinking of cities
>>
>>1309153

You're going to have lots of time to travel still. I travelled more after I got accepted to law school than I did prior to it. I also had a serious gf (now wife) the whole time.

Enjoy your trip to Mongolia, but it won't be your "last big trip" - that will come in 3ish years.

Be warned OP

Any overly anti-Japan or anti-Korea post is either a weeb or a koreaboo. They make it pitifully obvious when they don’t give details of their trip. Most of the shitposters have never even been to either place. Both countries have redeeming qualities and I’ve greatly enjoyed my time in both.

This. Came here expecting the usual shitposting but was pleasantly surprised by the lack of it.

Lived in Korea and travel to Japan regular. Love them both but for different reasons.

Korea has cheaper drinking and taxis for night life. Lots of interesting and traditional food, I suggest going out and trying some both normal Korean lunch like healthy soups and the late dinner barbecues. Don't get stuck eating the marinated bulgogi like most foreigners do following some lonely planet guide, try some mom and dad restaurants.

Tokyo has higher quality of life in general and you'll find interesting things to do aside from drinking, although a step up in price. I love them both.

Best cheap cities to live in that are somewhat big (or near enough)?

Though home prices have risen since I left in 2009, Colorado Springs is nice city very close to a ton of places to explore in and around the mountains. It's an overwhelmingly Protestant city, meaning that most people are educated and polite, and there's a few military bases nearby that support the local businesses.

I liked living there and I'm considering moving back in the future, but I don't know how the job market will look by then

Generally either from making it beforehand and then moving, or from a job that mainly allows you to work remotely.

In my opinion, the best Stan is by far Tajikistan, but thats just because of the incredible Nature. If you want islamic culture and stuff, I would recommend Usbekistan, their historic cities beat everything in that manner.

Still, the people in the Stans are very russified, so if you want "more authentic" ME culture, go to some arabian country or Iran.

Hey /trv/, I'm considering going to South Korea with a couple of friends next year for 2 weeks. We're thinking about staying in Seoul at the moment and looking to experience the town, go to bars and have a generally chill time. Does this sound like an alright idea or does anyone have any better suggestions and/or tips for what to do? I'm a little afraid of falling into areas that have been too touristified. Would going to a smaller and less popular city be more fun/interesting? Our budgets are fairly limited (around 1600 dollars each) and we have basically no knowledge of Korea outside of PSY and kimchi.

>inb4 just go to japan
I would love to, but one of the guys I'm going going with has recently been there and vetoed Japan, so it's sadly out of the question.

Sorry if the question is too general, I've looked at other places but I don't really trust any tourism sites since they seem to be mostly vetted by dumbos.
