Are there any good travel YouTube channels out there to kill time?
Something fascinating and interesting, maybe a recollection of personal experiences or something unique enough to warrant binge watching.
Nothing like those guided first world tours, I'd prefer the gritty stuff.
Thanks in advance, also I'd be willing to check out any cool links to stories, forums, archived threads, basically anything you have. I remember reading the congo trip with a landcruiser in that overlander forum linked it was fantastic, anything like that.

Good evening, /trv/. This is gonna be a fairly long post, please be considerate.
I'm south american and I'll be traveling to Boston by the end of October, will spend around 20 days in the US.
Now, I'm 'oficially' going to visit some relatives and attend to some bullshit events due to family reasons, but I'll have around a whole week all to myself (from around 22/10 to 28/10). Since I have been to Boston before I'm not really interested in doing the usual tourist stuff there.
Now, one thing I really like is to go to places closer to the wilderness and such and, due to living in a tropical country I have never really experienced snow (I did but only inside a city). Is this (end of october) a good time to go skiing, and if so, is there any good, begginer-friendly (with instructors, gear for rental and so on) spot on New England?
If that is not the case, where would you go to spend around five or six days, alone, in a sabbatical manner? I'd like to do some sporty or motoring activity, if possible. Or maybe shorter, two-day trips to interesting places. In that case I'd be able to do even more of those.
I've probably spoken like some peasant third-world tourist, I know, but I'm only now able to get to know other countries for real. Last time I was out of my country, I was in a very tight budget and couldn't even go where the subway lines didn't reach. Down here, basically all my trips were to some kind of countryside farm or, rarely since it's not really my thing, the beach.
I appreciate any and all info you guys give me. Thanks in advance!

I have lived in the same house, in the same town, with the same people for 18 years and I can't take it anymore. I have spent the last 4 or so years planning miscellaneous adventures in my head, only to let them slip through my fingers. every morning when i wake up, for a second I don't know where I am, and when I realize my stomach drops. I'm still here, that adventure that felt so real wasn't real at all. I have decided to join the army, because I need to change who I am, just as much as I need to change where I am. I dropped out of high school and got my GED. Today I went to the recruiters office, only to hear them say that I need 15 college credits to join. I don't believe this to be true, but it is crushing my spirit. The wanderlust is very real today, I can't stand to wake up in the same place again. Does anyone know if this is true, or have any advice on what I should do?
Cruises. Ships. Cruise ships.

Ok everyone, if there is one thing on the bucket list you need to do. Is one cruise.
Why? Becaues its F****ing paradise. I recently went on a cruise and my god, that was the frist time ever, it was just... awesome!!!
Now listen closely this is the most important thing you need to understand. DO NOT GO ON A CRUISE EARLY IN YOUR LIFE.
Wait until later, the reason i went was because i was going with my parents. And my father is really old now so he wanted to do this before he was bed ridden.
Im not going to tell you what cruise to go on or etc. you do that when you want. But i will say this save up a lot of money, and make it special, make it that last trip everyone wants to remember. Other than that bon voyage.
TEFL in China

So I'm going to be graduating in May with a BS in Chemical Engineering. I am looking at TEFL in China for at least a year before I enter the workforce. I am American, and as such have no knowledge of anything other than English. I see this as an opportunity to learn Mandarin, travel, and become immersed in another culture/
I went to china this last winter, and really loved it. Does anyone have experience with TEFL, TEFL in China, or have any thoughts on my plans.

Started a thread some weeks ago but let it die because I was too busy to post updates or pictures. Now that my trip has been cut unexpectedly short, I'd like to make another ask-me-anything creation. I made a thread last year documenting my time during the Gezi Park protests, traveling in Iraq, and more, and had a great time sharing my experiences. I'm hoping to have yet another nostalgic outlet for my upcoming return to America, so I'll give this a go yet again.
I've been gone for about five months and have spent the last three-and-a-half living in New Delhi. Before that, I hitchhiked around Iceland, flew to the UK, and thumbed most of the way from London to Istanbul, with significant stays in central Germany, Venice, rural Croatia, Sarajevo, and Belgrade. So I can try my best to give hitchhiking and location advice to anybody's who's interested and thinking about going some of the same places I've been.
I'll try to keep this thread fairly well-updated until I get back home on the 12th, after which I can probably post most days, provided you all have any interest.

Alright, let's settle this once and for all. Which is the best big city of today's Nords... *for living in*?
Seriously, though, it's either Stockholm or Copenhagen, right? I haven't been to all these places, so I don't know.
