I'm going to be spending next semester abroad in Japan. I'll be in a dorm, so furniture and all will be provided, but I would also like to bring my desktop and possibly PS4. Is it worth it to ship the desktop over for 3 months, then back to America? I'd also have to ship my monitor, keyboard, etc.
Obviously, while I'm there, I do plan on spending a lot of time out exploring and such, but I still think I'll need a computer. I do have a laptop, but I don't think it will really suffice, and my first semester of college I figured "eh, I can just use my laptop as my main computer," and it was awful, so I don't really want do that again.
tl;dr How would I go about shipping a computer, how expensive would it be, and is it even worth it?

I've got about 5 years left to live, /trv/, and rather than sit in my room crying about it I want to get out there and see things I've never seen.
If you could pick ONE place to go, to see, before you die, what would it be? Doesn't matter what state, what country... Anything. Just the one place to see before you die.

So, guys this Friday at midnight going into Saturday I'm going to travel via car from Connecticut to Boulder, CO.
Looking at the travel on google maps it seems as if it'll be a 28 hr drive with tolls and 29-30 without.
Normally, I'm used to driving 45 minutes at a time at best. And while I'm more than excited to go on this adventure, I'm a little nervous about going nuts from all the driving. I should also note that I am more than likely making this trip by myself.
Anyone attempted this before? What's the best way to break up the monotony, stay comfortable, etc.
Any tips or stories are welcome.

Hey /trv/, first time posting here so please be gentle.
I'm a young, male American who's looking to travel alone&abroad for about two or three months. I've never left my country before, so I thought I'd go easy on myself and pick the continent of Europe for my first time. I just had a few questions on how I should go about this. I already have some destinations picked out (pic related) but I'm wondering how realistic it is with my budget of five or six thousand USD. I'd want to spend anywhere from 3 to 5 days in each place. Is this feasible? If it helps, I plan to mainly be traveling by train and plane (via Ryanair) and stay in hostels. Are there any cities that just aren't worth my time on my map? Any places I'm missing? I'm open to any city recommendations you have. For a little background to help with recommendations, I don't drink, I'm mostly just interested in big cities for this trip, and I enjoy historical/cultural experiences. Oh, also great food.
I'm looking for general backpacking tips and useful travel websites/apps/resources you may know of, too. Other than that, please help me. I'm stupid and just want to leave this country for a while to experience something different.
Also, bonus question: Do you think I should jot down to Africa/Middle East and visit some key cities (i.e. Marrakesh, Jerusalem, Cape Town, Cairo, etc.) if I have some time/money left over? Any feedback and recommendations on that would be great too.
I'll check on this thread a little while later. A quick thanks in advance to whoever helps me out!
