Hey voyagers,
/trv/ is a slow board, so don't expect immediate responses. CHECK THE CATALOG – you might find threads already discussing topics you're interested in.

Before asking for suggestions, tell /trv/ about your:
>Budget
>Interests
>Level of understanding of the local language(s)
This makes it easier to give quality advice. Of course, keep your posts travel related.

For all other matters:
General culture questions >>>/int/
Politics discussion >>>/pol/
Transportation discussion >>>/n/
Outdoors-related discussion >>>/out/

I'm FORCED to work as an overnight security guard for two years at a time before I can go overseas for my six months sabbaticals. How do I deal with the misery of being back in my home country?

Before you grumble, this IS LITERALLY THE ONLY WAY I can do this, NOTHING ELSE is possible. DON'T tell me to do something else. This is my life.

What is the best country to go to for a good motorcycle trip on paved roads. I'm not looking to do a South America jungle single track offroad adventure. I'm also not looking to do a US style boring straight flat line highway tour. I want to go to a place with nice winding roads where I can enjoy natural landmarks. I don't even need to enjoy the whole country, if it has one single region that I can spend some time in enjoying that would be great!

I kind of think Mongolia would be fun but it's so big and flat, and I'm not sure to what degree it's paved. I'm afraid most of it would be on a highway in a straight line.

Best place to motorcycle hands down is the USA. They have the infrastructure in place for traveling. The have plenty of state and national parks for camping. They have law enforcement that doesn’t shake you down for bribes. Good healthcare if you have an accident. And if you go missing they will make a genuine effort to find you with helicopters and search and rescue with dogs.

I just got back from Seattle and had my worst travel experience ever. What a miserable place. Dirty, ugly, and extremely dangerous. On my first day, I went to Pike Place and saw a crackhead taking a dump in the middle of the street. Drug users shouting and threatening people in broad daylight, and the population just walks around as if nothing is happening. I'm Brazilian and, despite agreeing that Brazil is a cursed country, I can assure you that a lot of what happens in Seattle doesn't even happen in Brazil.

Every business in the city was keen on displaying LGTV++++++ and BLM flags everywhere, and everything there seems to be wrong and bad. A $20 pizza costs literally double because of some stupid regulation to pay more to delivery drivers. Not only that, I also saw
a bunch of people eating French fries every single single morning (eating fried food in the morning should be a crime).

What really scared me was the number of leftist freaks roaming the streets. Combine that with black people, crackheads, and homeless people, and you have the worst city on the planet. I say with absolute certainty: I would have preferred to go sightseeing in Africa than in this sewer called Seattle. Such bad vibes.

Nbs, I think it may have been my good upbringing or frequent visits to the local hippie commune but I cannot stand cities/dense population as a place of residence. Now that does not mean I despise cities in general, I actually really like the café culture in my city and some of the more developed historical sites are beautiful in their own right. I think cities are a remarkable feat and an important one at that but they aren’t for me

I worked in tech for a decade (still do, for now) and invested on the side. What makes you think this is a LARP? What would be in it for me, if that were the case?

Props on /trv/? That wouldn't even be a thing because people that try to say you're LARPing just hijack the entire conversation anyways. I'm trying to generate some genuine discussion here.

In blackpill terms, I'm ~130IQ careermaxxed, with a poor upbringing by my boomer-ish parents. Tons of guys in thailand fit or exceed my profile. that's why costs for tons of things are significantly above the 90s and early 2000s now. People are coming over to SEA and east asia with both savings and a decent income, rather than just a 6 month emergency fund and a dream of being an online marketer.

If I’m going to be on a 20+ hour flight, I want to be comfortable and that ain’t happening in economy class with the nigger cattle. The real question is why do poors think they have the right to travel? We rich people should raise your rent and not give any raises if you poors suddenly have enough disposable income to travel further than your relatives weddings and funerals.

What are some jobs/careers that got a good work/life balance for travel? I heard Trucking is good and Maritime got like 28 days on 28 days off and months on months offs if your in a ship at sea but what else got something like several days and several days off and maybe weeks on and weeks off?

The typical 9-5 schedule with 2 days off that I'm working doesn't leave much room for long road trips let alone international travel. Pretty much exhausted all interesting places to visit nearby that I can swing in 2 days.

I can speak Italian so small villages wont be an issue. thought about using a fairy to reach sicily.

>is tinder good in italy?
used it both in spain and france, was successful in both, but im a little older, i believe thats a big factor on getting matches.

>"remember, we parked the car under rollercoaster C" edition.

>What is this thread? Why are there two generals?
/rcg/ was initially created as a way for the roller coaster enthusiasts on here to discuss all things roller coasters and theme parks. While roller coasters are the main focus of these threads (and the title of the general) there is also discussion on other theme parks, their rides, as well as the parks themselves and trip planning too. That's where /tpg/ comes in.
>Can I talk about Disney/Universal parks in this thread?
Absolutely! Disney discussion of all sorts including rides/resorts/dining/trip planning is OK.

Thread Tip Pro: When in line for a coaster with a bunch of normies, feel free to autistically infodump to them every single iota of information you know about the ride you are about to go on: opening date, manufacturer, # of inversions, stats etc.

What parks have the best top 3 in the world? Hard mode: No Cedar Point
>>
I went to Busch Gardens and had a good time even though I got sick from the rides. How do you not get sick? The last several times I've gone to a theme park I've felt bad at the end of the day. Like I get a headache and my stomach doesn't feel good. I like the rides when I'm on them.

I guess I don't live a very active life. Would getting more exercise help? My mom used to be able to do coasters and she just can't now. I'm scared I inherited it from her. My dad is 61 and he's a big fat guy, and he has way more stamina than me. He went back and rode Griffon three times. I think the heat is part of what makes me sick, but it wasn't even that hot that day. It was like 78 degrees or something.
>>
>>2664111
Eat a moderately sized breakfast before you get to the park. Make your own if you can, fast food is loaded with sodium which can make you feel worse if you're out in the sun.

The only thing you should drink for the day is water and lots of it. You have to stay ahead of dehydration and heat exhaustion, by the time you start to feel bad it's too late. Avoid sodas and energy drinks entirely, maybe have a Powerade/Gatorade after a while, but don't drink them exclusively.

Avoid spin & puke rides as those are the ones that will take you out of commission the fastest. If there's one you have to hit, hit it early, maybe first thing while your energy level is high. I don't get on those anymore.

Avoid greasy/salty foods if you can, unfortunately a lot of park food and fast food falls into this category. Consider leaving the park for a meal if you're not pushed for time, this will give you a little while to sit in the a/c and be off your feet. Also consider bringing a picnic lunch.

Take some pain reliever with you wrapped in Saran Wrap, then take one dose when you arrive and have another in your pocket for later (take with water ofc). Avoid aspirin though, it has a tendency to cause an upset stomach.

If you go a lot, you'll build up your tolerance for rides again. Only really an option if you live nearby and have a season pass, though.
>>
>>2664142
I've decided I'll never go on a tiltawhirl again. I do drink soda at the parks, I guess I should avoid that. I think honestly it's the rattling of the coasters that does it to me. I feel worse after every ride. It starts off slow but it catches up to me throughout the day.
>>
>>2664142
Most parks out there also let you bring your own refillable water bottle as long as it's clear, empty when you enter, and not made out of glass.

As practical advice and warning for your fellow travelers, what bad tourist behavior have you seen, or even accidentally done?

One i learnt the hard way, people don't find it amusing or cute if you use their secret word for you on yourself: Rosbif in France, Farang in Thailand, it doesn't come across as self deprecating, it comes across as mockery and assumes they'd use that word.

Also do not try and catch a banknote blowing away in the wind with your foot in Thailand, it's massively disrespectful to the royal family.

I'm going on a little tour fairly soon, trying to cover the most significant WW1 battlefields between France and Belgium. Stating in Ypres, going through Arras into Amiens, then to Verdun and Mons.

If anyone has done a similar trip I would appreciate tips / detours / non-obvious places to visit, etc.
>>
>>2664103
I did a similar tour a few years ago hitting up Ypres and Verdun. From what I can remember there isn't much in Ypres from the war but it is a very nice town, the Citadel in Verdun is neat but you really want to go out to Douaumont to see the fort there and the Ossuary.
