This thread is to help you with meeting other /trv/ users while travelling overseas, lots of us travel solo and sometimes it's nice to hang out with either a local for a few hours, meet up with someone wanting to do a similar activity to you (Hiking, motorbike touring, roadtrip, partying ect) or just have a bunch of people you can go out with on a Saturday night. The choice is yours.

Alternatively, if your not travelling at the moment but still want to meet some new people you could always offer to be a guide around your own city or simply be down for having a beer at a local bar, its up to you.

To make sure your meeting up with the right people (IE: So a backpacker doesn't meet up with a sex tourist, or vice versa) best to include some details such as...

>Location
>Age
>What you plan on doing/what kind of traveller you are

Ya regular OP starting things off again
>Vegas (as we speak), Arizona (26th Oct to 29th), LA (30th Oct to 3rd Nov), & Vietnam (5th Nov onwards).
>23yo student backpacker
>Keen on walks/hikes during the day then casual beers or a party during the night. Wanna try get to Monument valley and grand canyon without paying extortionate tour fees too.

Basic Q&A

>Why would I want to meet up with people from 4chan?
/trv/ is often quoted as having the most normal and least autistic users on 4chan.

>I think im too autistic
Get out of your comfort zone then. Nothing to loose.

>Does /trv/ have the best userbase in all of 4chan
Yes.

>Where should we meet?
A local bar, nearby monument, a hostel are all good choices.

I forgot to bump the last thread before it got knocked off, haven't had any internet in a few days.

I live here. There's a cool bit of beach along the Thames where the ground is made up entirely of human bones from hundreds of years of dumping bodies in the river. It's completely unknown to almost everyone and I'll take anyone who wants to see it there.

Crap, I'm not allowed to go anymore. I woke up this morning screaming, and I was so afraid I peed the bed and it got all over my mom. She says im going to have to start sleeping in my own room if I keep going to the scary beach. Sorry bro!

I bought a round trip ticket on a whim because I fancied myself a worldly man. Now I think it's more about escapism from boring western life and doing things my parents could never do.
I'll be in Beijing to start with, then Northeastern for the rest. I want to see the regular tourist sites, but also drink alongside expats and disheveled Chinese.

Backpacker, with this trip focusing hopefully more on meeting people and less on browsing attractions and museums alone
I don't have any specific plans yet for the places I'm going to, though I intend to go by foot most of the day if not all day.

Usually train but sometimes plane, yea i have most stuff pre planned in terms of accommodation and a rough idea of what i wanna do in places, yea sometimes its a bit tiring but you just take an afternoon or morning to rest and its all good.

>>1486884
ik heb ooit met je gemaild om op de Gentse feesten af te spreken. Oud flikker van de draad. (maar niet echt een naam). Maar dan moet je je toch vooral aan de steden houden in zulke landen denk ik? En dan vervoer huren/kopen? naar het platteland, want ik neem aan dat je dat ook wil bekijken
>>
>>1486885
We zijn met minstens 4 nederdraders op /trv/, blijkt nu. Wil je een kaartje?
In landen als Iran en Oezbekistan hou ik me inderdaad vooral aan de steden. Spaans spreek ik erg goed, dus in Latijns-Amerika ging ik overal wat. Ik huur of koop gewoonlijk geen vervoer, al heb ik eens een Vespa gehuurd in Italië. Met veel geduld, voorbereiding en flexibiliteit geraak ik ver met het openbaar vervoer en soms eens een taxi. Het helpt dat ik een heel klein beetje Perzisch spreek, wat ze ook in het zuiden van Oezbekistan spreken.
>>
>>1486886
Ja ik wil wel een kaartje lijkt me leuk. Ik zal je binnen dit en een uurtje een mail sturen!

I'm planning on taking the train in from Bangkok to Poipet. Flying out at the end of the month from Phnom Penh. Other than that my itinerary is open. Probably go to Battambang then up to Siem Reap. Maybe even head up to Anlong Veng and Preah Vihear. I need to hit up the beaches down south for a bit. I heard Otres beach 2 and Koh Rong were good. I did up Thailand and Laos last year so I'm not totally green.

Drinking and hiking in Colombia (not at the same time). Visiting GF in India but also chilling and traveling around. Planning to take a lot of day-trips outside of Kolkata to explore the countryside.

Not really into the backpacker scene (I still travel pretty cheap but tend to avoid hostels) but get along with most people who aren't Spiritual Yoga Masters.

My wife and I are American citizens doing post graduate work here. She's working on a PhD I'm working on a masters. The stipends are good. Finding work as an American citizens is difficult. Switzerland has a law basically saying: to hire a foreigner to do a job, you must first prove you couldn't find a Swiss person to do the job. You need to be highly specialized. The work around however is to work for an international organization like the world health organization, the United Nations. Or UEFA.

Switzerland is nice though. A bit expensive, but not as bad as most people say. AMA

The trip was an outgrowth of an inside joke where we all quit our jobs and went on an east Asia sex binge, but now it's finally happening I guess. I guess you could just say I'm a mentally ill white person, but I'll be there chiefly to look for records and integrate myself further along the trajectory of going new places that prove life doesn't have to be that complex. I'll be keen on seeing some fights while I'm there as well. Drop me an email if you'd like.
