I'm going to Ladakh, India in June. It's a high altitude desert region in the Northern most part of the country. I'll be spending a majority of the two week trip at 12,000 ft, and I'll be trekking up to a maximum altitude of 15,000 ft. I'm comfortable with every other aspect of the trip besides the lingering threat of high altitude sickness. I'll be spending the first three days of the trip mostly resting and adjusting to the altitude.
Has anyone had high altitude sickness? If I have a history of ear issues, will I be more susceptible. I'm a bit overweight-would getting in shape make me any less likely to be uncomfortable?
Going to Costa Rica for New Years

I am going to Costa Rica with 3 bros on Dec. 30th for 2 weeks. Going to celebrate new years while exploring the country.
I am deciding on what backpack to purchase for this trip. We will be hiking, staying in hostels, clubbing, casinos, beach, etc etc basically everything we can possibly do.
I decided a backpack would be best for traveling since a) hiking volcanoes lugging all my clothing for the week will be best this way.
Any tips on what to do in Costa Rica for New Years?
Any tips on what bag to buy? I am looking at the EMS brand Longtrail (price) and an Osprey 70L bag.
Also, complete side note: In the future, I have been saving rewards points on my CC, and one lucky /trv/ bro will receive a trip from it (thoughts on this?)

I will go to Thailand and Cambodia for more than 30 days from December to January. I want to rent car and trip by car in Thailand and Cambodia.
So I have the questions. According to official rule, I need to have the visa for longer than 30 days stay in Thailand, but I'm planning to visit Cambodia, therefore I'll stay for less than 30 days, but my plane tickets are for more than 30 days. Can I just explain this situation to customs official on arrival or I need some papers, like tickets/hotel reservation?
Also, can i drive from Thailand to Cambodia by rented car and how is traffic and road condition in Thailand and Cambodia?
Attn airport employees.

My buddy might be screwed, what does /trv/ think? Here are the gory details:
We live in the US, he buys a ticket to Thailand for his six yr old son.
Gives them the number to his son's EXPIRED passport when buying the tickets, turns out they expire at age 5. We did not know this.
Plane leaves in the wee hours of Monday, no time to fix this.
Here's the thing, he has dual citizenship and a valid Thai passport.
So the question is,
will he be able to travel TO Thailand with his Thai passport??
Once there we know he will be able to get the US document renewed, so that's not an issue.
