I'm going to Europe in January from Japan. I just found out that I'm going in January. I'll be there for 30 days roughly from the beginning of January to the beginning of march.
The issues are:
-before, I was going with someone else and now I'm going alone, which sucks.
-it's going to be cold, where should I go? Southern Europe or just tough it out? (I can go anywhere in Europe as long as I don't freeze to death)
-if I stay in hostels the whole time, around how much money will I spend? I'll be going out drinking and stuff pretty often. I know this depends on where I go...
-will Europe be empty of travelers due to it being winter?
I'm 22, American, traveling for pleasure... If you need any more info let me know.
Hoboin' in Winter

Hey, I know we're getting into winter, but I need some time out. I'm so sick of my life, I've been developing drinking and drug habits. It's getting out of hand.
So, has anybody ever slept rough or traveled on a super low budget during winter? I thought about bumming across Europe for about a week, sleeping either on the streets or in the countryside.
Hints? Tips? Advice?

I'm trying to come up with a name for a travel/life(cooking mostly) blog and I can't come up with a good one that will be catchy and not cheesy.
I know, another one of those, but this is more of a journal and less of a money making enterprise I'm thinking of, a place my family can read about what I'm up to when I'm not home. The thing is, pretty much all good domain names are already taken and whatever is not taken that sounds remotely good is now a 'premium' name which costs $10 grand... So would anyone of you have a suggestion for me? Even if it isn't an actual name, along what lines should I be thinking here?

I have a friend who is living in Shenzhen right now. I'm been thinking about visiting him next year sometime in March. While I am there, I will be going to Hong Kong and Tokyo. Anyone willing to share their stories and tips on good hostels, restaurants, and things to do to me about Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Tokyo?
American Discovery Trail

After nearly 2 years at a job that I can't stand, I've decided that I want to do something different for a while. I'm saving up as much money as I can, and in March 2013 I will begin a trek across the American Discovery Trail. I've done some backpacking before, but never anything on this scale. What would you recommend for me to bring? Obviously, I'm going to be almost exclusively non-perishable foods, but do you recommend anything in particular? So far my list is:
-Non-perishable food (will restock as needed)
-Some type of water purification system
-First aid kit with medicines
-I will also be bringing a basic tent, as my main goal is to avoid cities as much as possible
What have you got for me /trv/?

Hello /trv/, I've traveled and lived all over Europe, and in Kenya. I've seen these places and now I set my eyes on the middle east. I'm thinking Jordan/Israel for 1 month this June 2013. I'm not worried about the political situation. However on a budget of $3.000 CND, if I'm frugal will I be able to live out a month and see all the history?
Also what would you suggest I see, do, and experience on a whole. Also trying to learn some Arabic before I go over.

Just bought a ticket to the US Virgin Islands. Staying from December 5th to the 17th. Plan to live in a tent somewhere on the beach (unless someone is kind enough to let me stay of course). I was wondering how easy it is to live out there on your own for nearly free. All I am bringing is a tent, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, a roll of toilet paper, some clothes, flashlight, and my sleeping pills. What all will I need to take that I am forgetting. How can I sleep on the beach in a tent without getting harassed? What are some good things to know about the area (Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas)? What are some attractions that I should go and check out? Thank you!
