Of all regions - the Middle East intrigues me the most. Of all the Middle Eastern states - Yemen seems the most captivating.
But so far I've neglected to visit there owing to safety reservations. But, even with exercising common sense, what is the chance of being kidnapped by bandits, beheaded or, worse yet, forcibly and tenderly loved by a hairy arab man ?

Attention good people of /travel/!
We, the folks behind project TANNA respectfully request, and simultaneously graciously accepted utility of your fine board for our covert doings. I apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, however we promise to use only one thread at any time, and not be too loud.
tl;dr: bitches, you gettin jacked.
With that formality out of the way, let us cut to the chase.
Project tanna is, in short the greatest undertaking 4chan has ever seen, conceived on /b/ a few years back and revived very recently. Essentially, we go pick a town that is quite remote, and we populate it with a whole bunch of fake facebook accounts (optimally around one hundred) and we live in peaceful harmony for up to about six months. After this period, there is a build up to d-day: essentially one (or more) supposed "residents" goes on a psychotic murder spree. We hope to have fake cop accounts, paramedics etc so this looks incredibly real, and hopefully makes headlines.
tl;dr we manipulate social networking and the media to make a whole bunch of people think a whole bunch of other people got killed, when they didn't even exist in the first place.
Anyone using this to recruit on /b/ or the other, busier boards should of course redirect newlings to this thread, or the equivalent at the time.
Thank you for your time.
Relationship between USA customs and my notebook.

Hello, fellows. I'll be soon traveling to USA in august, want to spend some weekend in there. I planning bring my notebook with me, draw something in the plane or hotel... Or I better not to? There was huge rustling on the internets about that PIPA, SOPA and ACTA not so long ago.
So I wanted to ask, what situation on border now?
How often do they check people's devices for some filthy pirated content in there, and **WHAT** exactly do they search for\or what they consider will be enough to incinerate (or confiscate, same result for me) my notebook? I have nothing criminal there (*I think*), except some pirated programs (i'm not even sure that very windows of my notebook is not pirated, it was pre-installed when I bought it) and my 150gb music collection. While 150 gb of mp3's obviously will be considered as pirated stack and must be deleted prior (sob), what about the rest?

East and Southern Africa;
Best times to travel, what to see and do, what to avoid, how to stay safe, things that can't be missed etc.?
At the moment I'm thinking July/August 2015, for about a Month, my main interests are in hunting, safari, photography and food, I also enjoy boating and snorkeling and just generally wandering around cities.
I'm hoping to see Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa definitely, but hopefully a few other countries in between.
I'd also like to fly out into Mauritius or Seychelles or Madagascar.
What do you guys think of couchsurfing.org?

Personally, I love it, and couldn't think of a better way to travel, to meet locals, and to experience a place differently than you would from a guidebook. I have surfed all over south america, mexico, spain, morocco, and israel, and have hosted people from probably 30 different countries. I have met the most generous, friendly and unique people during my travels, most of whom I still talk with. Just curious about anyone's input/experiences. (first time posting on 4chan)

SoCal bro here, I've gotten an internship in Madrid this summer, but before I start I want to spend a few weeks roughing it in the wilderness. I want somewhere in the north of Spain with tall oak forests and streams I can drink out of, where I can pitch my tent and spend a few days with a flask of vino roja while I teach myself Galician.
I have my eye on the Muniellos Forest reserve in Asturias (pic related). But apparently they only allow 20 people in per day, and you only get one day per year, so I'd have to sneak in and keep a low profile, which seems easy enough (I work in conservation; I'm not going to shit everywhere and burn the forest down). Hopefully the bears won't be a problem.
But any other suggestions for where I could go? Basque country or the Pyrenees? >>703713 maybe you can help me.
