Hi. I have never posted on /trv before, but I have questions, and you people are the geniuses of the Internet. A buddy and I are planning a trip to Mexico next year (Tijuana to be exact). We plan on doing the obvious for starters (bars, clubs, hookers, beaches), but I am having trouble figuring out what to do there because everybody on the internet is a tourist. I want to know what GOOD shit there is to do there. I dont want to buy worthless trincets and barter for woven baskets. I want to have fun. We are both 21. I need to know the best clubs, best bars, best brothels, etc. Tell me what experiences you have had and if you recommend another city over Tijuana for the above listed activities. Also I want to do drugs there.

*Note about the JR Rail Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

I recently lost my job, but found another one. I start Feb. 15th. With this unexpected time off, I want to do some /trv/ling. I'm thinking Peru to visit pic related. I also want to take part in an ayahusca ceremony retreat.
Here's my question(s). This time off is unexpected, and I now don't have health insurance (until I start the new job). So, I'm wondering if I"ll be OK going without getting vaccanations.
I really don't know what my history of shots is. I can't really look into it, because I pretty much never go to the doctor, unless I'm injured. It's super-expensive to even visit a doctor without insurance, let alone get a bunch of shots.
Is it insane to just risk it and go? I know Hep A and Typhoid, and to a certain extend Yellow Fever and a couple other things are real threats.
What would my fellow /trv/lers do? I really want to go somewhere with this time that I have, and this is a huge bucket list thing for me.
First Time Traveling

Hey /trv/, I'm a first time traveler so I'm a little nervous and was hoping you guys could help me out. The questions I'm asking I've already tried with google and have gotten pretty general answers or can't find specific answers for, so I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm just a little nervous because this is only my second time flying (first time was to basic training where everything was taken care of for us) and it's overseas.
Anyways, I'm flying from the US out to the netherlands with a 1hr30m layover in frankfurt.
One of the main things I'm wondering is what I can take in a checked bag. I know this seems pretty simple but google gives me mixed answers. I'm staying for 8 days so I'd like to fit in entire containers of shampoo/bodywash, but I'm afraid the liquid rule that applies to carry ons could apply to checked baggage. I'd also like to take some advil and vitamins, but I'm nervous that they could be considered drugs and cause a delay in me getting my baggage or something. I really can't find definite answers on either of these so if you guys could help me out from experience that'd be great.
This probably sounds like a stupid question too, but when my plane lands for my layover in frankfurt, do I get my checked baggage then head over to my next flight, or is it already transferred over to the next flight for me? Also is a one and a half hour layover enough time? There was shorter and longer layovers but I didn't want to go too short and miss my flight or go too long and wait all that extra time for nothing.
Are flights losing luggage still a thing? I've heard of it but i'm not sure how often that happens. What do you do if it happens? (the airport i'm landing in is about a 3 hour ride from where i'm staying so it isn't like itd be easy to go back and get something left behind)
Any tips for packing a carry on bag? I have a pretty good sized "tactical" backpack that I was just planning to put some extra stuff in like my laptop. (cont.)
