I'm planning to spend ~6 weeks in south America next July-August and I have a few questions for you. I was thinking about focusing on Peru, this being the dry season there and whatnot. Now first question, is 6 weeks in Peru too much, knowing that I like to visit places I go to rather slowly and thoroughly, and that I enjoy hiking as much as visiting cities, small villages and archeological sites. If you think that I could easily fill six weeks in Peru don't hesitate to recommand your favorites / anything you liked that wasn't mentioned in guidebooks. Next question is about luggage. I usually rent a car when I travel, but aside from the price, I understand that it might not be the easiest thing to do in Peru and that I'd be better off with public transportation. Now the problem is, carrying a roll along suitcase everywhere doesn't seem too convenient, but my gf has back issues which prevent her from carrying much weight in a backpack. Which means that I'd have to carry everything myself if taking a suitcase is impossible. tl;dr : what's the best luggage setup for 2 persons traveling in Peru with public transportation, knowing that one of them can't carry a heavy backpack. That's it for now. If you have any tips regarding accomodation/food/things to do/anything really, don't hesitate to post them as well.

So I am trying to find some flights for march and was wondering what sites people use to find the cheapest ticket. I know that leaving on a Tuesday is the cheapest and little things like that. But is there any other tricks out there? Any sites I should know of that show glitches in the system or really discounted tickets? Any help or feedback appreciated! And Happy New Year!

Hey /trv/ My dorm is closed for winter break and I'm broke, so I'm trying to get to LA for exactly $0.00. My friend and I were drunkenly discussing hopping a freight train somewhere in the bay area, and now that I'm sober I'm curious. Is this still something people do? I guess there are three questions I have at the moment I'm hoping someone could help with. 1. How do I find out which train is gong where? I tried getting info from the Oakland port authority by telling them I was writing a report, no useful information was forthcoming. 2. Where do I get on? I was looking around the rails by the oakland port, it was all very well lit and there were cameras around, I feel like trying to jump on there would be stupid. Anyone with knowledge of yards in the bay area please contribute. 3. What am I supposed to be riding on? I've seen freight trains around and the only cars I've seen have those modular shipping containers, and they don't seem to have anything to ride in/ on. I know there are other ways to do this, I'm just curious about hobo-ing and so far google has been devoid of information on my area.

Can any /trv/ellers tell me about their experiences in Africa? The entire continent has been fascinating to me since I was little, this huge sprawling mass of nature and unstable civilization. I'm mostly interested in what you have to say about regions underneath the "arab 5" in north Africa, but those are cool too.

I'm planning a spring trip over spring break and I think I've settled on Toronto. I think I'll take the megabus since it's faster than the train for some reason and it's also very inexpensive. I'll be leaving from DC. Anyway, I've never been to Canada before, what are some cool areas in Toronto and is there anything I absolutely have to check out? Also, how much can I expect to spend each day? It can't be much more expensive than DC and the USD and CAD are pretty similar (.92/1). Also, also, I've never stayed at a hostel before and the one I'm looking at is about $30 a night. Is that fair? I'm thinking about 5 days and 4 nights, which seems reasonable. Any advice about Toronto and traveling in general would be appreciated.

Greetings, globetrotters, I'm writing from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm planning a small get-away to the US (Fortnight-long, to the West Coast specifically) in two weeks time. Not my first time in the US, but first time in the West Coast, so I'm fairly bewildered by the amount of options, trying to pin down some stuff to look out for in what little time I have there. Budget ranges from 7k to 8k USD. First stop will be Portland. I've an American friend there visiting his family (he lives in Argentina). Or rather, visiting his parents; he has a family of his own (he's like over 30), wife, children, the whole nine yards. He's a native so I'm sure he'll know his way around town. HOWEVER, he's like ultra-religious. Well, not 'ultra', but he's pretty up there in the religiosity meter. So I don't know exactly what I'm in store for. My guess is we'll do a bunch of dad-core shit. He'll introduce me to his family and, worst case scenario, they'll try to convert me. Don't get me wrong, he's an amazing guy, super fun to be around. And I deliberately chose to take him up on his offer to visit him there because, well, I've traveled solo before (plenty)... and I want a change of pace. He's planning some stuff already. Including (I think, potentially) a car trip to SF. Here's the kicker: I'm queer. I'm for sure gonna hook up with men (read middle-aged bears) there. I'll try to sabotage that road-trip somehow, fly down to SF solo and do my own thing. Staying at hotels in both locations, so privacy isn't an issue. I realize this isn't most people on here's cup of tea, but I'd love some insight on, well, bear bars. I'm talking actual bars, not sex-crazed orgies (inb4 AIDS). Nothing too 'out there'. Are non-bears even allowed in these? Any experiences from anon would be great! So, bottom line: 1) Stuff to do in Portland; 2) Stuff to do in SF; 3) General travel tips for these locations, etc. Thanks a bunch, anon.

Travelling Alone

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: traveller.jpg]
What are you guys' general opinion on travelling alone? Do you prefer going alone or with a group of friends? Personally it's a love/hate thing. I love it because I have complete personal freedom, I can go anywhere, live by my own schedule, not be forced to make any compromises. The bad part is that I find it really hard to be extroverted socialize without my friends to back me up, I end up feeling like a loner for entire trips, barely conversating with people because my otherwise outgoing personality just isn't there when I'm alone. Anyone know any way of dealing with this? Is it just a matter of forcing yourself to be different? Anyway, I still prefer travelling alone though, the freedom makes it worth it.

I don't know if this belongs in /n/ or here, but what are some of the best ways to mess with the TSA? Me and my SO are flying soon and we want to make a conscious effort to make them feel as uncomfortable as possible. We already got moaning whilst being patted down.

What sights won't last?

I was looking at some old photos and I stumbled upon pictures of my visits to Arches National Park, Glacier National Park, and some photos of the carrier Caribbean coral/sea life. I couldn't help but think that sights and such like these won't be the same or may not even exist in the future. What are some of the places that come to mind when you think of these? I want to hit them now before they disappear

Sweden get away?

So, I always like to have a few courses of action, to pick up a go bag and never come back. What can this board (first time poster) tell me about life in suburb of rural sweden? Average 30 year old American male with BA and military officer background and a lot of project management experience. Don't speak a lick of Swedish. Though I do have a Swedish name? Could I survive? Would I die alone and poor? Deported promptly? Maybe i do this for reasons to linger in stores fantasizing adventures when buying bags?

Hey /trv/ I'm supposed to write a piece in German and if I do well I get to go on a school trip to Germany so I was wondering if any of you knew some German and could check my work: Ich liebe urlaube! Ich bin Chillen urlauber, weil ich Ruhe liebe. Ich fahre gern mit meiner Familie und meinen Freunden in Urlaub. In die Sommerferien, ich bin in die Stadt gegangen. Die Stadt war sehr spannend. Ich bin ins Kino mit meiner freunden gegangen. Es war total Spass, weil meine freunde witze gemacht haben. Meine freunde sind wirklich lustig aber manchmal laut. Um 5 Uhr, wir einkaufen gegangen und wir haben pizza gegessen. Die pizza war lecker aber sehr fettig. Um 9 Uhr, habe ich im schlafzimmer geschlafen. Mein bett war unbequem und die zimmer war ganz kalt. Das war nicht cool. Nachstes Jahr werde ich am ferien fahren. Ich werde nach Durham mit meinen Freunden fahren und es wird spass machen. Ich wurde nach London bleiben aber es ist zu teuer. Wir werden einkaufen gehen und ich werde souvenir kaufen, souvenir sind interessant und cool. Auf Urlaub, werden wir in einem Hotel bleiben aber das Hotel ist wirklich teuer! Es ist teuer, weil es sehr sauber und gross ist. Ich mochte die Kathedrale besuchen aber meinen freunden finde das langweilig.

Teaching German abroad/Teaching English as a non native

3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: german_teacher_funny_gift(...).jpg]
So we get a lot of English teaching threads here and I usually just skip them because people always say that you "just have to be a native speaker with a Bachelor's degree to do it." Now the thing is, like many others I have not grown up in an English speaking country, but the whole "teach and live in another country" thing still seems very appealing to me. Well now to my question: Is it possible to teach German abroad? Is there a demand for that? Anyone possibly has any experience with that? My other question would be, if there's a possibility to teach English without being a native speaker. I figured that the English teaching market might be a competitive one, so I don't really know if there's even the faintest chance for a non-native to breaking into it, but again, if somebody has experience with it let me know.

Hi /trv/ The past few years I've traveled through Europe quite a bit and I got acquainted with the most common transport media. Locally it's fairly easy to get around using Google Transit, but unfortunately this does not seem to work well if you're traveling from one country to another (or perhaps I'm just failing?) In these cases, it's a burden to manually look up schedules for (night) trains, long distance buses a.k.a Eurolines, low cost airlines ec. on a ZILLION different websites. Is there something like an international route planner that searches the cheapest/shortest route including airplanes, trains, buses, etc? Also, if anyone has any questions about traveling though Western Europe, feel free to post 'em in this thread and I'll so my best to help!

Hey /trv/ Hope all is well, fuckers. I am going to be stuck in Los Angeles with 10 hour layover from the Great White North, wondering what do you guys prefer to do to stay entertained? I've never had a layover of more than 3 hours, and I can only walk around and eat for so long. Also, since I'm only 20 I can't drink, which is fucking stupid. Thanks alot guys, safe travels! >inb4 jackoff >inb4 sleep

NYC

Hey /trv/, first time posting here but I have been browsing for quite some time. I was wondering how hard realistically it would be for a lifetime UK citizen to move to New York, specifically Manhattan or Brooklyn in terms of the boroughs. I understand that it would most likely depend on income and education received, but I've practically came to the end of my time studying my a-levels in sixth form which I believe is the UK equivalent to college and will most likely be attaining A's / B's. Besides from this, after university, if I wish to pursue a future in NYC what things will I need to consider? Forgot to mention, I live in a fairly major city in England and so I'm used to congested traffic and hustle and bustle to some degree. Thanks.
