Belgianfag reporting in.
A friend and I are planning a 3week trip to the US next summer. Below is our main idea of the journey.
A couple days visit to NYC, and after that we want to go to Seattle, rent a car and drive down the West Coast.
A couple questions:
1) When/where should we buy plane tickets, and are these long flights often susceptible to changes in hours/dates?
2) When driving down the WC, is it possible/worth to bring a tent and camp at particular places down the road?
3) Any other places recommended that arent in the list yet? Some places in my lists not considered worth our time/money?
4) Other general tips and ideas are appreciated
So, we will be looking for a flight to NYC out of Brussels/amsterdam/nearby airports.
-In NY: Guggenheim Museum(25dollar), Central Park, 5th Avenue(St Patricks cathedral), American Natural History Museum (22dollar entry), Brooklyn botanic garden(12dollar entry), Times Square, NYC Skyline, Empire State building
-> Possibly Niagra falls?
West Coast trip:
-->Seattle, Olympic National Park
Avenue of the Giants
-->San Francisco: Golden Gate, Crazy Lombard street, Marine park, Half Moon Bay, Ano Nuevo State Park
(possibly) Yosemite National Park
-->Santa Cruz: Rio Theatre, The Wharf, Palomar, Santa Cruz beach boardwalk, Wilder Ranch State Park,
-->Los Angeles: Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Pier, Griffith Observatory, Universal Studios
--> San Diego
Maybe even go to Las Vegas, and from there out to bryce canyon or grand canyon.
What do you guys think? Is this possible to do in 2 weeks?
Wanting to plan a trip to Japan next year

I'm new to this as I've never took a trip outside of North America before. I've been to Canada to visit friends, and Mexico to visit family.
I have many questions if you don't mind answering them.
I have heard Japan is very Xenophobic from many people, although my friend who is Black says the contrary (but I won't be traveling with him), is this true? I am Mexican if that wasn't already addressed.
I don't speak a lick of Japanese, nor can I read Kanji, should I try to learn a bit before going?
How should one go about not being a tourist, I do have good socializing skills, so does that help in any way?
I was considering taking a trip there for about roughly a month, would that be ideal or should I consider less time?
I am a fanatic of outdoors as well, is the country side worth seeing?
Any good cities with a good night life such as clubs and what not to visit?
Around how much money should one plan to spend while their stay?

It's that time again /trv/!
It's been a while since /trv/'s virtual football team has had a game, but we will be playing twice in the Autumn Babby Cup at the weekend, with a game on Saturday against /wg/ and then Sunday against /h/.
From what I've seen we look more than competent, at times utterly lethal, I actually submitted our export on time this deadline so we will be fully functional.
On the wiki, implyingrigged.info, you will find our team roster, music, and the schedule for the upcoming Cup. I am only the manager who puts it all together on the pitch, all suggestions on things such as the Team's players, kits, walk-out anthem and goal music are greatly appreciated! Before our next Cup I plan on refreshing the team a little, /trv/ as a board has changed quite a bit since 2012.
So let's hope Sex Tourist, Superpornowat Farangbang & Co. can fire us back into the big leagues!

Riga general thread.
I'm currently in Riga. I've been here for a week, and I have another three to use. Who better to ask than /trv/?
I'd love to hear anybody's opinion on what there is to do, everything from where the parties and the interesting bars are at, to which parsk and churches are interesting.
I'm here to improve my Russian, and if anybody has any tips in that direction, that would also be great.
And if anybody has any questions or are interested in the area, I'd love to answer as good as I can.

Greetings /trv/, I'm from /out/ but I lurk here. I will be visiting family and friends in Germany next year and I was wondering if I could get your help with something. I have social anxiety but only in certain situations. For example, concerts, sporting events, malls, grocery stores I'm fine with. As long as I'm not in a situation where I'm expected to be outgoing and social in a large group I'm OK. In small groups of people (4-5) I'm good. But it's in larger groups where I'm expected to be social with everyone or where the spotlight is on me that I clam up. Well I've only met 3 of the family members that I'm visiting and a couple of their friends when they came to visit the U.S. I can see in my head exactly how this will play out. As much as I'm looking forward to the trip, the thought of meeting all these new people and the spotlight being on me terrifies me. So I was thinking of getting some zoloft or something of the like from a doctor.
No. I'm a mellow quiet drunk. The only thing that seems to bring out the real me in situations like these is caffeine but I can't be wired the whole time. So my question is, is there any restrictions or issues with bringing prescription drugs to other countries that aren't for a serious medical condition? Will they be confiscated? I'm 28 and haven't been on a plane since before 9/11 so I'm not familiar with things like this. Has anyone here had anything similar? I know /trv/ can be a very slow board so I'll be patient.
Will I have any issues bringing social anxiety medications on an international flight?
