Hey /trv/ let's talk about some gear.
I'm going to be doing a study abroad in Seoul this next spring. I'm also planning to head to Bankok, Phonm Pehn, and HCMC before. I'll also be doing a little Japan trip afterward.
All in all i'll be gone for probably 5-6 months. I've traveled all over the United States, but less so internationally (pretty much just England for three weeks). So i'm a bit of a newbie, but I can handle myself better than most. Anyway, pic related is the pack that i'm looking at purchasing. Does this look adequate? I'm comfortable traveling light, and I could fit a solid weeks worth of clothing in the bag, but will it be enough, or will I be pressed for space?
I plan on taking some Dr. Bronner's and some cord for general purpose use, so I could potentially wash my own clothes if need be.
Also, please feel free to use this thread for general gear discussion.

Hi /trv/ I'm off to Rome for 1.5 days next week (as in an afternoon and a whole day). How much can I realistically get done visiting midweek? Everybody seems to have different opinions but I suspect that a great deal of them are formed from visits over weekends and during summer. Will I be able to see the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon and the Sistine Chapel in that space of time? I'm not a Catholic so I'm not going to need to spend all day in Vatican City for spiritual reasons, I just want to admire some of the art.
I'll be booking my tickets to the Colosseum and Vatican Museums online, so I won't be trapped in the horrific ticket office queues everybody warns about. Can I pack it all in to the time I have? How would you recommend I tackle it? Trevi fountain and other free miscellaneous sights (possibly the Pantheon) on the afternoon I arrive, then the Colosseum first thing in the morning on my full day, followed by the Forum then on to the Vatican after lunch? Or am I doing it all wrong?

So I'm visiting my girlfriend in Toronto in a few days, and I'm trying to find out what do to do in the area - I don't want to spend 10 days in Toronto, as you might imagine. I've looked at Algonquin National Park, but I was wondering if /trv/ might know some must see places, parks, things to do, anything I'm overlooking...

Hello /trv/, /int/ let me down.
I'm going to spend about a week in Copenhagen, Denmark. However, the conference I go to lasts days only for two days, and I have no idea what to do afterwards (I'll go all alone). Are there any Danish anons out there who could help me out? I'm more interested in landscape and scientific attractions than historical ones. I already know about the Turning Torso in Malmö and Oresund bridge, both nearby, but that's all. I'm also interested in nightlife and places near university campuses where science/engineering students usually congregate. And, of course, Danish girls.
Thanks in advance.

Hey guys need your help.
I'm a complete and utter travel virgin. I'm from Northern Ireland and the furthest I've been to is Liverpool. I'll be 21 and soon and this is so fucking unacceptable. Fortunately I have an opportunity to go to Brixton for the o2 Academy thing on Nov. 2nd. The only thing is, is I'd have to head over on my own.
I'll be meeting someone over there of course. But I have no idea as to what would be the best way to go to Brixton. Which airport to fly to from Belfast int, which public transport to use, where to stay... I've tried looking but I'm useless.
Any Londoners willing to help out this poor, untravelled idiot? Pic related, what I'm more used to.
