I’m staying in 8 bed hostels in Barcelona and Madrid next week
I have bad sleep apnea that is very loud and wakes my gf up and she’s a pretty deep sleeper

Will I be hated by everyone
Is there anything I can do to ease my fellow hostel mates suffering or just say fuck it and let them deal with it

get a single room if you want to wake up the next morning and value you health!

I'm a snorer and stay in hostels all the time. If you're too much of a pussy to wake me up and tell me to roll into my side that's your problem

Get some earplugs or a private room

Try it for a night and see how it goes. Hostels are shitshows and anyone staying in a dorm that can't handle a little noise and ill mannered behavior shouldn't be there, they are the people that should get a private room. If you feel shitty the after the first day then go ahead and get a private room.

Everybody has their annoying habits, most of the people attacking you here probably lack the self awareness to know what theirs are. At least you know and want to be considerate.

Really though, hostel dorms are shitshows. You are just going to be another random dude doing random shit there.
>>
>>1438199
Thanks, you given me a bit of confidence


To the people asking about me getting a private room, I could only really afford the 8 bunk dorms and they’re already booked.

I’ve thought about taping a sign on my bunk or letting everyone know beforehand that if I’m snoring too wildly and wake them up feel free to wake me up also. I was also thinking about buying a big box of earplugs and handing them out to people but seems like it might come off as a bit extra

In this thread, we rank the top 5 countries we've been to. Only countries (not regions or states) that you have ACTUALLY been to. The idea is to make a list (Top 1 gets 5 points, Top 5 gets 1 point) to see what are the travelling preferences of /trv/ and also to have people fighting each other over their choices.

Kayaking on fjords, taking a tour boat on fjords, kayaking at sea, ice climbing on glaciers, walking on glaciers, good cross country skiing, northern lights/midnight sun, good food (fish, lamb, bread, cheese), exotic food (reindeer and whale), nice trains, hiking, waterfalls, photography opportunities, churches, and a couple decent museums/historical sites. I'm actually flying out for a trip there in 8 hours if the fucking tornadoes don't stop me. Most places are not as beautiful as the western part of your country, or as quiet as the northern part.

Moscow is easily the best city but Kazan/St Petersburg are obviously worth the trip too
check out the countryside as much as possible too

Right, I've been trying to plan a week's holiday in Russia to meet a friend, having never travelled by myself before and never outside of the EU.
I had been planning to apply for a tourist visa, booking a hotel for five days with flights there and back. I've already bought medical insurance.
Only now do I realise that I almost certainly do not qualify for a tourist visa as I'm not travelling as part of a tour company.
German citizen. I have no idea what I'm doing. Private visa sounds more plausible but it's apparently one hell of a hassle to apply for.

hey there, Im an American but I actually just arrived in Russia a day ago on a tourist visa.
It's not a terribly hard process, I really recommend using a visa agency as it simplifies the process immensely, and they will usually sell you an invitation as well.
Things you need:
1. Passport that's valid for 6months after your visit.
2. Visa
3. Visa support voucher (in order to actually get the visa.

>>1436187
>The "letter of invitation" can be just something from a Russian hotel
If so, couldn't I get one from the hotel that I'm trying to stay at?
As far as I understand it, smaller places such as BnBs and places you'd book on Airbnb won't be licensed to hand these out but, as I'm staying in a hotel, I'd expect it to be large enough of an establishment to be able to do this themselves.
Or am I terribly misunderstanding something here?

Hassle: requires them to apply at their local federal migration office, takes some 4 to 6 weeks to process, can be rejected if they don't earn enough, and also incurs costs to them.
That's what I gather from reading around, although it appears to me that the checks and controls are becoming laxer with each passing year.

Litterly just pay for it and stop being stupid mate. Instead of wasting days pondering how to get it, 3 min on a website and its in your email

Yes, your AirBnB host will not get you one, nor will they "register you", whole nother thing and it doesnt matter either

Hopefully you looked up that guide on how to apply for visa, this is a stupid easy process, i have been in country 4 times this year, was just there last week, and will be going next week again

>"Globalist!!!" is screamed if you point out the immigrants came to fill labour shortages after Hitler plunged Europe into war.

Yes because the 300,000 migrants per year initiated under new labour in the 90s (the UK for anyone who doesn't know, similar things happened across the continent anyway) really needed to fill those effects we were still suffering from WW2. Imagine being this much of a brainlet.

Miami native here. This is the worst """"""""""1st world"""""""""" city on Earth as far as I'm concerned. The entire state is complete shit, stay away. The only redeeming qualities are the nature up north, the non-touristy part of the keys, and a few redeeming tourist locations like Disney or Cape Canaveral. This place is almost another fucking country full of annoying and sub 100 IQ hispanics you just want to punch in the face (I'm hispanic, inb4 racist). Up north all we have are sub 100 IQ obese white & black folks who work at Walmart during the day and work their heart disease at night. The only thing keeping me going is that I'm leaving this shitshow of a state next year. STAY AWAY.

I've been annoyed by our Real Traveler's Map™, where you can fill in administrative divisions of countries you have visited, for quite some time. Parts of it has been outdated or simply wrong, and coastal subdivisions have been a pain in the ass to fill out. Now, combining my 8986 hours in MS Paint and my 25 years of autism, I have combed through the entire map and updated it completely.

First of all, I've made it much easier to fill out. I've drawn lines and connected every pixel to another. Every subdivision can now be filled with a single click of the paintbucket. This is especially apparent when it comes to places like Northern Canada, Southern Chile, Greenland, Norway etc. Second, I've revamped more or less every island terriotry, which previously were often just black dots in the ocean and impossible to even fill out. If they were large enough, I included every subdivision, while if they were too small and/or had too many subdivisions (it's usually both, the Maldives for example have over 200 administrative divisions...), I've grouped them according to island groups instead. E.g. the Marshall Islands is divided in two (the Ratak and Ralik chains), instead of 24 municipalities. This also applies to the Cook Islands, Nauru, Kiribati, Palau, etc. I've also removed all those red lines denoting disputed territories, and adjusted the borders to reflect their more de facto nature, which is more convenient from a traveler's perspective.

I've also added more coloring options, light and dark red for homeland and its visited subdivisions, and light and dark green for visited countries/subdivisions. This is to make it easier to spot if you've visited a small province in a big country (Like Doha, Moscow, Bangkok, etc). I also added yellow for coloring in places you're going to visit next. If you guys want to use these colors is entirely up to you though.

I hope you appreciate what I did and use this new map. Feel free to change it however you like.

Also map thread.

Nah. Stick to first-level administrative subdivisions where it's feasible to keep the map somewhat consistent. Spain is perfectly fine.

Limburg is very racist, has a weird incomprehensible Dutch accent (used to be considered its own language even). And are in general lower-income working-class people that are nationalistic for their own province and hate the rest of the country. As long as you stay in the university and hang with more educated people you will have a great time. The locals will most likely be a bit rude though.

I really want to go to Mexico next year for a few months, maybe the full 6 months free visa; I want to check out Oaxaca and CDMX for sure but I'm not sure where I should go to get a decent budget apartment.

Any suggestions? I'm mainly interested in learning spanish, eating good food, and fucking young women.

I wanna go to a place in Africa where people speak english, where theres good surf and interesting things to do.
I have a friend from Lagos who recommends it, but I kinda wanna hear some more opinions, since flight and visa together are already pretty expensive.

In particular Id like to know about the following:
>How is the hostel situation in places like Lagos? I dont mid couchsurfing but its also refreshing to be with other backpackers from time to time.
>How is tourism in general? I assume its not super crowded, even in late summer.
>How much time can I even spend there? I could potentially make time from mid August till mid October, and the visa would be valid for 90 day anyways.
>Whats there to do? I do like to just chill for days or even weeks at a time, but something like jungle adventure tours is also usually fun for me.
>What about neighboring countries like Benin or Cameroon? Is it worth hopping over the border if I have that much time?
>How much money should I expect to spend as a minimum? I like to cheap out as much as possible usually, but obviously not at the cost of experiencing something. I assume neither food nor accommodation nor transport will be expensive at all, but a rough picture would be nice. (spent about 15€ per day on average when I was in morocco doing 50% couchsurfing 50% hostels as a reference)

Thanks for any and all info and stories/ experience. Also obviously pls no /pol/ replies. I already know theres gonna be black people there.

First started using it because it was the cheapest way for me to travel back from where I study to my hometown (for instance, trains here in France can be kinda expensive depending on where you’re going, also traveling by car can be faster). It’s been 3 years now.
Easy to use, I tend to choose the person I’m traveling with based on their reviews (I always travel as a passenger). I’ve never had any bad experience, actually I’ve met some cool people, young and old.
I don’t know how popular it is outside of France though.

Is it worth it to visit Morrocco in the winter on low funds?

it seems to me most of the major population centers are close to the coast and at low elevations. what's the weather like in the daytime and the nighttime?

are the atlas mountains basically not accessible during the winter?

and is this the low or high season for tourism?
