Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

alright yall a question. first of all i have been to Europe and had a lot of success, I'm not your stereotypical murkin and i have language skilz dont worry

in gonna get back over there eventually, last time was about a decade ago. im very interested in using this schengen zone situation to travel la di da di from iberia to scandinavia

so say i do my normal 90 day tourist visa...my rough itinerary is

> portugal overland to spain to france to [italy/germany/switzerland/austria/undecided] to czech republic to poland - then perhaps a flight to finland....say now my 90 days is up.

i go to...Moldova...or somewhere nearby outside of the EU/Schengen zone...for 3 full months..this meaning i am past the '90 days within any given 6 months' - am i able to re-enter the schengen zone for another 90 day tourist visa? i mean it should be that simple right?

so that i can travel through the rest of Scandinavia, probably Denmark/paises bajos/Belgium back into France and Iberia to fly back to Gringolandia

right, right?
>>
>>1396472

yea people do that all the time although its more common to go to the UK (with 6 months tourist visa) or Ireland (3 month) since they both speak English and are outside the Schengen Zone

Also it will be interesting if the EU actually does revoke visa free travel for the US. They've been threatening to do that since we don't offer Visa free movement to Poland or Romania

No idea if they will follow through
>>
>>1396484
great post thank you so much

what kept me from thinking of the UK/Ireland was the need for a flight but now i recall there is a tunnel that connects with NE France. i wonder how expensive that is?
> where im from in the USA there is a similar tunnel connecting Maryland and Virginia with a very pricey toll

i think that's a good idea anyway and i understand the Irish are very welcoming people
>>
>>1396489
Taking the train to the UK is going to be more expensive than flying. You can easily find very cheap flights to the UK or Ireland with budget airlines.

>>is overhyped
by trv yes.
>>too many foreigners
in tokyo yes. if you cringe by the sight of weeaboos or fatties, avoid akihabara, shibuya, shinjuku
avoid hostels if you dislike them or head for osaka or smaller cities.
>>too many weirdos (including foreigners)
same as above. most touristy places are shit.
other asian tourists may be shit too, but easier to avoid. they usually swarm around shopping instead of geek shit or night life.
local weirdos are usually just uneducated faggy kids with feminine haircuts
>>too expensive (while some say it's not actually that expensive)
hotels or airbnb change prices a lot. I've had hostels that are more expensive than decent one room hotels and airbnb's in great places for almost nothing. on average though, more expensive than any other asian country.
it has great quality food, amazing fish and meat. but it costs.
it also has shitty fast food, noodles and low variety dishes that any other asian country does much better much cheaper. especially korea, thailand, taiwan.
>>public transportation always crowded

>Even the railroad crossing where a train disappears in a tunnel and the other one is on top of it close to Akihabara is awesome
you do realize all people aren't as fucking into trains as you right?

also I'm fairly certain Akihabara is a top destination for touristfags, but I guess you know something nobody else know

How easy is it to hang out with Yakuza/gangsters/street thugs in Japan? Serious question. I'm a photographer and want to do a series while I'm in Japan of gangsters.

Do they treat gaijin as a fun novelty, ignore you, or beat you up? Has anyone ever made friends or had a night out with these types of people?

I'm from a big city, street smart and can protect myself in a fight btw.

They're a nice primer on a city, I like to hit one of these on my first morning in a new place to get a handle of the surroundings. The information they give you is pretty surface level, but it's a good start. The tip usually ends up being less than the price of a paid tour.

It's also a nice opportunity to meet other travelers if you're not staying in a hostel.

Fuck man, I know what you mean but

I've had it happen where the police come the dude is speaking to them way quicker in a language I can't understand and I have trouble keeping up and articulating.

We make a scene and the cop sides with him since I'm a foreigner and now I have to pay a "fine" to the cop.

I'm with these other anons its made me stop taking taxis
>>
>>1396501
it depends though
i think ive a story here about an anon in egypt or something wanting to go to a bus station but dont know the location,hailed a taxi,taxi quoted 50 dollar and anon contested,some soldier dude came in and forced the taxi driver to lower the price to 5 bucks
then anon realized later there was a communication mix up and the place the taxi guy thought he want to go to was 5 hours away
there are generally some collusion with cops and scammers,bangkok seem to be rife with that but army dudes seems to be unflappable

So I'm 23 and I've never been on a plane before. I think it's about time I set it as a goal to experience another place, if only for a week. I'd be travelling with my girlfriend, supporting the two of us monetarily.

Is there anything I should know? Stuff you wished you knew starting out? Could you tell me about your first/early experiences travelling?

I've been pretty content with my day to day life, but I feel I need a goal and this feels like a good one. I'm a chef, so experiencing food/drink culture would be a pretty big deal. I guess that's a big part of what I'd like to achieve on this trip.

Sorry if this is an awkward post, it's my first time on the board.

Anybody know how to take drugs in Singapore without getting killed?

I will be living there for a couple of months and would like to have a party now and again. Are they as serious as they make out to be regarding drugs or will they turn a blind eye if it's harmless?

Do the rich foreign kids who live there get to do coke and stuff without hassle?

Either embrace that you're doing what makes you happy and enjoy it for what it is. Or admit to yourself that you want to work on your social skills and have a wider variety of experiences.

There's nothing wrong with either, the only cowardly part is being unhappy with yourself for who you are.
