Post your travel maps in this thread. Pic related is the official /trv/ Real Traveler's map™, edition 4.0.4

Fill in the countries and subdivisions you have visited, talk about your map and ask others about their maps. You can use the map however you like, the colors are more like suggestions, you don't have to use them, and you don't have to use all of them. You can add or remove colors and change the map as much as you want in any way you want. Don't like this map? Upload a completely different one. Up to you. Despite what some might say, there's no "wrong" way to use the map, and new posters and less travelled people are welcome and encouraged to stay and post :) This map is a group effort by our board, and we can only improve it if people reach out to share suggestions or corrections.

This is the newest edition of the map, edition 4.0.4, updated for January 2024. I'll post the simplified template in the next post. Changelog:

Subdivision changes
>Added Southwest Papua province of Indonesia (located in the northwest of Papua)
>The Central African Republic created three new prefectures in 2020 that I wasn't aware of before now
>Following a referendum in August 2023, Ethiopia's Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region was finally dissolved and split into Central and South Ethiopa Regional State
>Norway reversed some of the merged counties from 2020 and now consists of an unholy mix of 15 old and new counties
>Following the war with Azerbaijan, Artsakh has been dissolved and removed from the map
And this is why we travel lads. A country just disappeared overnight. The old Artsakh has been added as DLC.

>Village people called the police on me for being suspicious/taking pictures/potentially being a young man avoiding the draft numerous times
It happened to me even in Transcarpathia when I visited. Police were very polite though and actually apologized for the mistake each time, don't know if you had the same experience but I was quite impressed. I can imagine these police encounters would become annoyingly frequent near the front but I can't blame them, to be honest.

>It happened to me even in Transcarpathia when I visited.
It is a border region after all, popular with draft dodgers. The border where the Tysa river separates Ukraine from Romania is heavily patrolled. Road checkpoints every couple kilometers, lots of draft dodger catcher vans, and the entire river is secured with barbed wire.
As far as I know, men of draft age need to apply for a permit of sorts to go to Western border regions these days. Accomodation staff is actually obliged to call the police on young men who don't have the necessary documents.

>don't know if you had the same experience
Some were chill about it, but many took it seriously, to varying degrees. At worst, the procedure consisted of
>an interrogation
>a pannier search
>a phone search (photos, messenger contacts, apps. anything that might point to connections with Russia or acts of sabotage)
>mugshots of me and the bicycle
>a form (purpose of visit, name, birthday, employer bla bla bla)
>calling the head of the municipality (hromada) police department to the scene

Do note there's a Russian visa and two stamps from a visit to Russia five years ago inside my passport. It certainly didn't help. Police and military frequently pointed it out and asked questions about it.

In Croatia, Americans are treated a lot better than the European tourists in restaurants because the servers know they'll probably get a tip. It's especially noticeable in Dubrovnik. You can walk up to a restaurant that's packed, plop down 20 euros to the hostess up front and walk right the fuck in and sit down while 100 people stand in line outside. You get your drinks first. You get served food faster. All for a measly 20 euros.
It's the same with line passes in Rome, or in an amusement park. If you can afford not to stand in lines, why would you?

I'm going to Vegas for five days for an event in July. I'm looking for things to do and meet people from other parts of America but don't really want to spend too much time at the casino and I definitely don't want to go to loud rooftop concerts. I'm open to bars but I don't drink alcohol unless I'm very close friends with the people I drink with.

Honestly, my goal is to just find a nice single girl and then enjoy a nice stay Hell's Kitchen or something. Or something else classy

Thanks for your responses in advance

Yeah this isn't going to happen in vegas if you don't drink socially. Even then vegas has gone down the gutter from what it was precovid and especially pre DUDE WEEED.

Get ready for a culture shock because Vegas has gone full paul blart mode in tourists. You're going to just see families, boomers all over, and mexican/indians EVERYWHERE. I can not understate how bad shit's gotten post covid.

Fremont street >>>>> strip
>>
I lived in Vegas for 2 years on a tight budget. So OP, Westgate is fine, but it's not on the strip. And it's hot as shit in July, so hopefully the monorail is working when you're there. An unlimited day pass is like $14.

Don't get a hooker. The best case scenario is that they will rob you, or they don't and you get an STD. Don't buy drugs from dealers. You can buy legal weed in stores. For "free" drinks, my favorite place to go on the strip is casino royal. You can play penny slots and get free drinks with like a $1-2 tip per drink. You can also go to Fremont street and go to the liquor store. They will sell you a $5 40oz and pour it into a giant cup for you to legally take out to drink.

The best cheap meal on the strip is In and Out Burger, off the strip, it's the Shish Kabob House.

If you want to shop for cheap, hit the two Ross stores on the Strip. They get amazing stuff from all the local stores.

For nice girls, you want to try driving about 600 miles north to Salt Lake City.

Deed-restricted developments and HOAs are basically the white dominated neighborhoods of Florida. Only bourgeoisie POCs and Florida crackers can afford to move there, so they make them for euros from the north essentially. If you can't afford to move to one of those places, I wouldn't bother moving to Florida, otherwise it's highly immigrant culture dominated. Which I don't hate but it's not better enough than any other state to justify moving here. Another kind of neighborhood are rural Florida cracker areas where people mostly live in trailer/sears home neighborhoods. Which can be pretty nice given the space you have there, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who isn't both highly euro (whiter than mostly southern Europeans) and highly knowledgeable about Florida (lived there 15+ years).

I'm writing to you from Wuwei, a forsaken city in China where misery reigns supreme. Life here is nothing short of a waking nightmare—a relentless onslaught of poverty, oppression, and despair.
Imagine streets lined with dilapidated buildings, their crumbling facades bearing witness to the decay that consumes us. Every corner harbors the stench of hopelessness, a suffocating reminder of our dire circumstances. And amidst this desolation, the insect-like behavior of the population thrives, each individual consumed by their own struggle for survival, oblivious to the suffering of others.
The government's iron grip tightens with each passing day, snuffing out any semblance of freedom or hope. We're treated like mere pawns in a twisted game of power, our voices silenced, our dreams crushed underfoot.
But I refuse to surrender to this fate. I refuse to accept that this is all life has to offer. I yearn for escape, for a chance at a better tomorrow. My eyes are set on America or Canada, where I believe I can find the freedom and opportunities that elude me here.
If you have any shred of knowledge or advice on how to break free from this hellish existence and make my way to America or Canada, please, I implore you, share it with me. Your words could be the beacon of hope that guides me out of the darkness.

Continued from >>>2640924

I am a US Citizen, got a tourist visa, and visited St. Petersburg for three weeks. Here are my pro tips:

Visa:
>DO go through a visa agency because they will make sure you fill out the visa application properly (if you want to know the name of the agency I used, you can ask) but apply far in advance to avoid massive costs for expediting.
>DO apply for the three year multiple entry tourist visa. It is the most generous tourist visa that Russia offers and it is ONLY available to US Citizens. It allows you to stay in Russia for up 364 days per year and up to 182 days at a time without needing to do a visa run.

Travel:
>The only airline that you can get from the USA to Russia is Turkish airlines but be prepared to pay through the nose. The cheaper option, which is slightly more adventurous, is to fly from the USA to Tallinn, Estonia (first cheap) and then take a bus to the Russian border, cross the border, and then take a train to SPb. This will take you another day of traveling but it will save you about $2K round trip.

Hard for me to say since I was there in wintertime and also because I hail from a warm climate where casual is the norm. From what I've seen, Saint Petersburgians dress more formally than Americans.

Note that I once read in a EE guidebook that in EE, if you are underdressed but in name brand clothing, then you are given a pass. idk if that's true (sounds retarded, imo).

Not that anon (I am OP). Mine took three weeks and that was expedited. Be advised that the 3 year tourist visa is not available to Australians. Consider getting a business visa, which lasts twice as long as the longest-lasting tourist visa you can get.

I went to Bytom last year and had lots of fun. Not the tourist area of Poland for sure but my grangranpa was born there (when it was Germany) and it was very interesting to find all the locations of the old photos of him. And the apartments he lived in (which I found in old adress books). The town basically looks the same as before WWII. The residents there even didn't renovate anything so it's really stuck in time. I could find lots of German writings on walls like "Bäckerei". The people living there today seem to be rather poor as there is not much economy going on there. All the coal mines shut down. Some corners were really shady and looked like I'm going to get robbed or even worse. Just to find out that there were friendly and kind people everywhere. And food and beer are very great. Definitely gonna visit again.

tips for a very late/early morning arrival? hotel check-in isn't until 1 pm so i'm looking at about 12 hours before i can drop my shit off in my room. i heard the airport isn't very good for sleeping in (noisy, cold, bright) but i'll still do a once-over after i clear immigration just to see if i can't find a decent spot to nod off in.

failing that i'll probably head into town and look for a love hotel for an overnight but i'm not optimistic regarding vacancy since this will be de-facto late saturday night. my third option is a 24 hour net cafe or manga cafe or something, with McDonald's as a last resort. anything else to consider? i'm not travelling heavy, just a carryon

>>2649148
Just pay for a cheap hotel? You would literally rather waste 12 hours sleeping at the airport or McDonald's than spend $50 on a bed and a shower. I don't know how long you plan to stay, but just to be able to sleep comfortably after a long flight is worth it so you can actually stay awake later and enjoy your trip.

I'm not saying you are a cheap motherfucker, but you spent thousands on a plane ticket just to save $50 and feel like shit for the rest of the day. You might be fucking retarded though, if you can't book a hotel in almost any neighborhood in HK the same day.

Let's say I were to go from the west coast of the USA, stop in Hawaii for a few days, then fly to NZ. How long would it take to get a good feel for NZ and not feel rushed? Is two weeks enough?

And also is it worth it to tack on southern australia (and tasmania) for a month's journey?
>>
Hawaiianon here. All flights to New Zealand are long, and even if you stop in Honolulu to "break up" the flight it does not get any shorter or easier. HNL to AKL is 10 hrs the last time I went and unpleasant in any class of service.

If you want to come to Hawaii, come. If you want to go to New Zealand, then go on the most direct flight you can because they're all around the same length of time and you might as well just suffer once for it
