What would you take with you into an extended stay in solitude? I'm having a hard time crafting a search query because I'm not sure how else to reword it. Help with that?

Suggestions are welcome. Bonus if the things are low tech and don't require a lot of space like a deck of cards, dice, journals, pencils, pens, books, puzzle books (e.g. sudoku), etc. Jigsaw puzzles take up too much space and the replay value is really low. Keep in mind this is solitude and not a camping trip, so most board games are out of the question.

no porn, fuck that.
If anything id use that as a no fap, and eventually resensitizing your brain for pleasure in the more biological sense of sex and imagination. Dont go back to porn OP. Id do no fap, and reserve when I do choke my chicken, for just going off memory. Or what you can create in your head. You could seriously do a whole reset. Not many get a chance like this.

acid and weed though, definitely. Nothing profound ever really happens with shrooms for me.. its mostly just a fun high, and I get terrible digestive issues. I only use them if I have no other resort. Acid and weed in isolation, less so weed, since it can be schizo inducing if youre predisposed to it. Especially if youre really in isolation.
So id probably do:
Acid
Spiritual book, a long one
chess
instrument
Paired music progression books
Math books

i would focus on the activities you can do out in nature. if you're planning on spending 8 months inside a cabin, and you don't want to consume any electronic media, you're going to end up blowing your brains out
>>
What’s the goal of this outing? If it’s just to kill time you won’t come out a satisfied man. Neither will bringing a pack of cards or books. You need to contribute, to build or hone something, to not just sit and waste time. I spent 2 years in a place without electricity or network and killing time was not a viable long term solution. 8 months is a long time, enough to get deep with yourself. But you need to walk out having accomplished something tangible.

Hi, /trv/. Longtime lurker, semi-frequent poster, rare thread-starter, here.

I’m going to Detroit this upcoming Saturday until Tuesday. I’m wondering if you can recommended some cool things to do.

I’m in my late 20’s, and like to check out cool bars, clubs and restaurants, especially those with unique fare to the establishment/region. I’d especially like to go to a killer techno night on Saturday if one is happening.

Other things I’m considering:
-A Tigers game (definitely)
-Techno museum (definitely)
-Belle Isle
-Heidelberg project (worth it?)
-Michigan Central Station (worth it?)
-Check out urban decay without dying??

I’m also going to pop into Windsor to finally experience a legit Cuban cigar. So any cool ideas in Windsor are welcome as well. Please weigh in. Thanks, guys!

Going to South America for my first long solo trip


I'm flying into Cartagena, Colombia via Ft Lauderdale in 2 weeks. This will be my first long (> 2 weeks) solo backpacking trip, and the first ever where I will traverse such a varied climate, so I would be grateful for any commentary/advice/whatnot you might have. I have some specific questions at the end, but first a short idea of the trip:

I'm going to visit Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil and Argentina. I have six months off, though the initial plan is only to use 4 of these months. I may extend if I feel like it (I'm slightly skeptical of even making it 4 months in considering my character, but we'll see), but there is a caveat in that I have to be in Florianópolis, Brazil roughly the week before Christmas. In other words, I have about 11 weeks before I have to be there. That gives me about 2 weeks in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia each, 1 week to get from Bolivia to Santiago (from where I will fly to Florianópolis), + 2 weeks to allocate in whatever country I feel like I want to spend more time in (definitely Peru, probably Colombia). Because of the looseness in my time table I'm going to avoid pre-booking specific very far into the future.

Colombia: Cartagena -> Santa Marta (Lost City Trek 4 days) -> Medellin -> Salento. If I want to add more time, I'd visit Chicamocha canyon, Ipiales, and probably add more days to Medellin/Salento

Ecuador: from Salento (or Ipiales) -> Quito -> Galápagos Islands (5-7 days) -> Quito. If I want to add more time, Cuenca.

Peru: from Quito (or Cuenca) -> Lima -> Cusco (Salkantay trek 5 days, other stuff nearby) -> Arequipa

Bolivia: from Arequipa -> La Paz -> Sucre -> Uyuni & excursion to the salt flats (haven't researched this yet fully, so no duration)

Thank you! 3 - 4 days in the Atacama area sounds perfect to me.

And yeah, I'm not really that interested in Santiago. I'd really like to visit nearby Valparaíso, though, but I have a feeling that with so many places I'd like to see before the pre-Christmas deadline means that I will have barely enough time to even get to Santiago before I have to fly out of there. Chances are I might go back there when I'm coming back north from Patagonia, though. That is, if I'm not ready to self-destruct from all the travelling by that time.
>>
Florianópolis is known to be mostly safe, with very nice beaches and an agreeable climate. There are no direct flights from Floripa to the Amazon, so you'd have to do a layover at Brasilia. The Amazon in general has very little touristic infrastructure, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a full touristic package.
>>
>>1471241
Yeah I'm currently leaning towards doing a tour in Bolivia! I've never been to any place even remotely similar to the Amazon, so on this time I would want to do it "easy mode" definitely.

I think doing Brazil "properly" will have to wait for another time, so I will probably not move much from Florianópolis. It looks like I can catch a cheap direct flight to Iguazu Falls from there, so that fits into my other itinerary pretty well.

>>1470549

I hope you know how to speak Spanish, because they usually don't speak English
>>
>>1471820
I started learning immediately when I decided on the trip, but I would estimate that I can communicate only some very basic things. I doubt I will be able to participate in - or even understand - basic conversation. So, I won't get all out of the trip as I could if I spoke fluent Spanish, but I should survive, at least.

We left mid July and the rainy season just had started.

It is ridiculously hot during midday, I would only go out in the morning. I’m fit and into hiking and I ended up getting heat stroke climbing hallasan even though we started at 7am.

Koreans love to do outdoors things, expect it to be more crowded than you’re used to, but they’re friendly and well equipped. No matter where I went hiking other hikers would give me candy, oranges, or split some makgeolli.
>>
>>1471779
Thanks, sounds shitty with the heat stroke, but I only intend to hike, not climb. I guess it will work if I take it slowly. I hiked pretty long distances in 30+ and sometimes 35+ degrees celcius in Spain and it didn't bother me that much, and I guess Korean national parks can't be much worse than that

I have a work trip coming up next month. Flying to Helsinki, then driving to a venue not far from Helsinki for a conference.

I've never been before, have three nights for the conference, then I could either fly straight home or stay on for 4/5 more nights. All I'd have to do is pay for the extra accommodation, the flights and car would be covered by work.

I'm wondering if I should drive and do a mini roadtrip, but don't really know where to head to or how far to drive in that time.

I know it'll be pretty cold (about 50 degrees), but I like hiking (can bring basic hiking gear) and also just love driving and exploring.

Anyone been or live in Finland? Would love to get some pointers on places to go, so I can plot out a driving map and places to stay.

I don't know many unpopular or under-the-radar places as I'm not from Helsinki, but I'd urge to go to the islands other than Suomenlinna (it's a nice place too, don't get me wrong) because those are nice outdoors places and have parks and a nice mix of urban/sea views. This sauna complex Löyly has had positive reviews in the media, don't know in practice how good it is but Helsinki public saunas are in general nice and definitely authentic for tourists (if you don't mind some peculiarities like nudity and people actually throwing water on the rocks). There is also a city pool called Allas with a great location and views. Nuuksio national park is close. Kallio is where all the hipsters hang out. Don't know how often tourist guides mention Temppeliaukio church but it's a very unique one.

Hey guys, I got a deal on a cheap ticket, and am planning on taking leave for a quick weekend to Prague for the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia’s independence.

Anyone else going on the 28th? I realize it’s not a country any more, but I figured there should be some turn-out or events, somewhere. I’m planning on seeing some political stuff but really hoping to possibly meet someone else likeminded along the way!

Any info is appreciated!

hm, Prague is nice but i don't know of anything worthwhile going on here on the 28th. especially to warrant traveling here from abroad. then again, i guess there will be something

> I realize it’s not a country any more
doesn't matter, both Czechia and Slovakia (probably) are celebrating
>>
>>1471534
Looking back on it, it may have been interesting to see Slovakia, but there’s probably more going on in Prague. I found a bunch of historic sites, but also this military parade which starts at 1400.

Would be interesting to see a Czechoslovak unity rally (I saw a Soviet rally in Moscow for the 100th, interesting historic throwbacks) but I expect it to just be a part of this. I’ll ask around at the hostels and stuff if I find nothing else online.

Yeah and Mumbai

So I'm planning to start in Mumbai and then go to Goa just for a very short time to see it and to buy weed lol

I'm not sure about the exact route and in what order I'll visit the places, but here are the places I'm planning to see.

Kerala - backwaters, Wayanad, Idukki-district going to different places for about a week

Karnataka - Mysore, Coorg, Bidar, Bijapur, Badami, Aihole and maybe Chickmaguluru or Agumbe forest. I'm finding it really hard to decide on the exact places. Maybe I'll go to Kodaikanal or somewhere else. Then I'll fly out from Bangalore. I thought about going to Madurai, but not sure if worth it. I have no idea if this itinerary is total shit.

I'm mainly there for nature, would love to do several hikes. The hill stations in the South look incredible. I feel like I'm missing some fortresses or other stuff, but not sure if I'd want to travel that far for it.

Would especially love destination recommendations for jungle hikes or just jungle setting or regarding good hill stations. Basically I just want to experience lush nature, including the Western Ghats

All of my passport pages have visas or stamps from various different countries. I still have lots of space for small stamps, but no blank pages.

I'm wondering what will happen when I try to enter another country. Will the immigration just stamp wherever there's free space left if they don't require a visa, or could I get denied entry into a country and become fucked?

I'm planning to get a new passport at my embassy but I want to use up the last of my passport first.

That's really word, if my experience serves as any gauge. Indian customs officers have actually been the most consistent when it comes to neatly arranging their stamps in my passport. I've been there ten times, too, so it's not like I got lucky once.

Pic related, since I figure someone will call bullshit. Also, that's motorcycle gunk under my nail, not dirt.

I never really judged people based on the cleanliness of their nails. It's so easy to get dirt stuck under there that the only real way to prevent it is to clip 'em off completely.

>>1470484
>And you can't use the full capacity of these things since countries require two or four or something like that empty pages to stamp in visas.

>More and more countries it seems aren't giving stamps though but little separate receipt papers. I'm not sure why.
>I’m not sure why.

Read really closely your first paragraph and you may find the answer to your second.
>>
>>1470484
In case you can't get what >>1471380 is saying: the paper stubs can save space in your passport since pages aren't being used up by stamps.

Though depending on the country, they may have other reasons for giving you little paper stubs instead of a permanent stamp. For instance, Israel will give you a stub because you can easily throw it away. If they gave you a stamp on your passport instead, you could be banned from entering countries that have a bad political relationship with Israel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_League_boycott_of_Israel#Diplomatic_non-recognition).
>>
The stamp on my passports are all over the place. Granted I travel frequently between the two countries which have close ties and I'm a native.

As far as I am aware of its safe to say you reserve three empty pages for unfamiliar countries you intended to visit.

Im prety sure you posted this thread before. Like I mentioned in that one; just go off and do your own thing without them and explore the city.
When I was in Florence earlier this year; i went down every nook and cranny. I stopped at every church to take it all in and I wished I spent more than a few days there. The language barrier was never an issue for me and most civil people can figure out what you want or need. Just be patient and not panic so much about it.

Any Vegas people here? Looking to head down there in December. I wanna go a little cheap on the hotel this time. Since I’m never in the hotel anyway. Always running around.

From what I see both Harrahs and Treasure Island have the best deals. Cheap but quality. Anyone stay at either? Any opinions? Other recommendations? I’m trying to stay in the strip, closer to middle but not required. Thanks!

Planet Hollywood was a good deal when i booked, but I don't really recommend that. Only chose it because I was with family and it was sort of in them middle, so I could easily go look at dumb shit in Belagio, Caesars Palace, Venetian, etc., and see shows at those places.

Just stay behind the strip if you're wanting to do shit. Hooters is cheap, and close enough.

You can do downtown Vegas too if you're doing blow off a bench and renting two hookers for a bj/rimming, then eating cheap seafood and steak. Not that I am into that.

It's something like a $8-10 Uber to go to the Strip, so pretty good value there too.
