4 weeks interrail in Europe
1 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: trip.png]
I'm a 21 years old German, planning to go on a trip around europe by train (interrail ticket) for 4 weeks in august!
My goal is to reach the southwestern and the southeastern end of europe and to see as much as possible of what's inbetween!
The things I really want so see are:
Paris, Lisboa , Gibraltar, Sicily (I want to see Corleone, even if I know it won't be that interesting), Rome, Athens and Budapest. And if there is enough time and money left, I'm thinking of using the cheaper train ticket from turkey to teheran!
All I have by now is a Mammut Heron Light 65 Bag, a good pair of shoes and a Opinel knife, clothes, 3 good books, and I will have ~1000 € for the whole 4 weeks!
Will I get that far, with this amount of money? (Trying to live as cheap as possible, but I'm a hungry person :/)
Is it a good idea to take a tent with me? Will I use it, or are there enough cheap hostels?
I'm going to travel alone, will I meet many other Backpackers in the hostels?
What else should I think of?
Thanks for reading, if this thread still exists when I start my trip, I will show you some pictures!
Thanks for answering, sry for mistakes!

I'm from the United States and am writing this post from New Delhi, where I've spent the last few weeks with my long-distance girlfriend. She's Indian and a local, and has been doing a great job of showing me around - even when I got sick, she's taken care of me. I want a way to pay her back in a romantic way, but don't know my way around the city. What's something nice, sweet, and sort of "Bollywood" I, as a white dude, can comfortably do for an Indian woman? Where can I go? Where should I take her? I don't have tons of money, and she'd kill me if I spent too much on her. We're going to Agra this weekend, if that makes any difference or gives any ideas (not looking for anything involving sex, which I've had and she hasn't).
Also, ask me anything if you're interested in any of the countries I've traveled to over the past few months:
Greece, Turkey, Iraq, Georgia, Armenia, Bahrain, and the UAE. I stayed in Istanbul for two months and was there during the protests - have lots of pictures on my phone, for those who are interested.

First off, I really didn't want to start another Japan thread. I was looking at a few in the Catalogue to post my query in but they most seemed to be Tokyo-Centric.
Basically, I'm off to Japan at the start of September for 16 days inc flights. The first 8 days I will be based in Tokyo with a few day trips planned to Mt. Fuji, Kamakura and Hakone. I'v worked out a pretty solid itinerary that I'm happy with.
I'm spending the next 7 days in Kyoto with day trips to Osaka, Hiroshima and Nara. I'm quite content with spending my day trips just wandering about and discovering things on my own but if anyone could give advise me on what to see in Kyoto, I'd appreciate it.
There seem to be many shrines and temples (which I like) but are there some that are more worth seeing that others etc?
Thinking about my next trip next year

Thanks to all of your recommendation I could have a great time in Japan last April. It was my first time in many things: traveling in a plane, going overseas (I'm from Argentina), travelling in train along a country -I visited like 12 cities-.... experience other culture, etc)
Now I was thinking about going to Europe (for the first time) next year. I don't know, may be one month may be in autumn or summer. Some places can be Athenas, Rome, Saint Petersburg, Budapest, Paris and London. I speak spanish, a little bit of english and some japanese... so I'm not afraid about language issues...
What I would like to ask for is about:
- What king of eurorail pass would you recommend to travel from city to city? Honestly, I don't know shit yet, but are them as fast as the shinkansen in Japan?
- Can you recommend me where can I rent a pocket wifi to get internet in my cellphone while traveling? (I did this in Japan and was my salvation)
- Is there any webpage to know timetables of departures and arrival for trains (like Hyperdia for Japan)?
- Anybody know about a good webpage to learn about events, concerts, etc in those cities Also buying tickets. For instance, I'd love to go the Mariinsky Theatre or Opera House Vienna
- Any advise would be very welcome.

Hey /trv/, next month I'm doing a backpacker travel through Asia with a friend. I've known her for 5 years, but only saw her live like 4-5 times. We chat online a lot though. We bought the tickets 5 months ago, and in the last month she's showing interest in me. Should I have sex with her? I mean, I'm open minded and all that but we are going to be 24/7 together and I'd like to keep her as a travelling companion. Also, we'll sleep together and it'll be imposible to resist if she try something.
Have you had any experience like this? How did it end?
Sorry for the shitty english
Going to Chile in October.

I'll be in Chile for a month when I get back from Antarctica, and I was wondering what kind of things I should do. The vessel comes into Punta Arenas, and I was planning on hiking Torres Del Paine for a week or so, but then going on to Santiago and going from there.
Does anyone have any recommendations on stuff to do near Santiago? Hot springs, hiking, things like that. I don't normally spend too much time in Chile when I pass through, so I thought I would enjoy myself before heading back to the states.

Give me reasons why I should or shouldn't live here. I've been given the opportunity to work in Houston or London. I'm completely torn and must decide by tomorrow.
Additional info: Born and raised in Vegas, love the heat/sun, love the city. I've been living in Europe (UK) for a few years, absolutely love it, have a great boyfriend (British), love the culture and city life of London.

I might be moving to Tasmania, AUS from the east coast of the US. I literally know nothing about the area or AUS in general.
What can I expect?
>Fiancee is a marine bio. major and has always had an Aussie fetish, one of the graduate professors she's interested in resides there. I am a city-phobe, but with her other choices being some extremely shitty areas in the US I'm thinking this might be my only exit from living in a crime-infested shit hole of a city. I'm not a college graduate, so I'd only be getting a visa as her fiancee (might marry before then, so husband). I'm really active in art, so I'm also curious about the art scene.
Basically, tell me what life in Tasmania is going to be like for a US American.
Pic unrelated, but tasty.
