What's it like living in NYC? If you're only middle class is it even worth it?
I visualize living near Central Park and being able to jog there every day. Would I have to be a millionaire to get anywhere near this? Does it get boring?
It feels like a central piece of the world and I'd like to be there. Almost comparable to something like Tokyo except in burgerland
Exactly, and theres enough people and places to act like a tourist every weekend and fuxk someone different

Going to be spending around 10 days in the Banff and Calgary area. Anyone been there that can share their experience, tips, and recs? Recommend me some fun and cool things to do in the area. Also restaurant recs would be great.
I live in Calgary, can give a few tips and places to go.
For food, the Grizzly House along Banff Ave is one of the better places in town, though a bit pricey. Also take a look at the Banff Springs Hotel, it's pretty amazing. For Calgary, there's not a whole lot that's exciting, but I may just be saying that because I live here. The better places to check out are along the Bow River in Prince's Island Park, and there's always Heritage Park and Calaway Park. The best bars and places to eat are along 17th ave or in Kensington. Stephen Ave is also a pretty fun street in the summer.
Get cozy and read some of /trv/'s (mis)adventures
new friends, partying, bad hostels, romance abroad, scary moments.. anything goes.
My boyfriend wants me to move in with him in the uk but I am not sure what visa i should get since we've only been dating for a couple of months I was hoping someone here could help (pic not related)
Also, if you are moving there be sure it is for the right reasons. Don't move to be with him, move to live in the uk, with him there to assist. Chances are you'll break up within 2 months or so of arrival (especially as he sounds like he hasn't thought this through), so you'll want to want to be there without him too.
I'd advise checking out the work situation and finding cool stuff that you'd like to be there to enjoy that do not include him or anything to do with him. That way if you break up, you'll have reason to stay and the entire county won't be associated with your relationship.
things could also be infinitely easier if any of your grandparents were born (didn't have to ever live there afterwards) in the uk or ireland

let me guess. You are a fag too, aren't you?
Fuck off we're full, I don't care if you're white
Luckily it's not up to you, huh? Have a cry.
I am already dreading winter.
I live in a van but have about ten grand to spend on a six month winter vacation to somewhere warm.
Drive the van to mexico or fly to someplace else?
Are you a please be in london?
What are the cheapest countries for an american to visit this year?
What troubles you anon?
Drive to New Orleans, literally no such thing as winter, it was 80° last January
Border towns are not good places
Guys, thinking of going to Ciudad de México for my first international trip and even though I love mexican culture, I'm kind of afraid of the crime there (don't know if it's a meme or what).
Does anyone had experiences about that who can share? Is the subway safe?
>I kinda have a thing about subways
>I want to see some shit outside of the regular tourist routes, like sports
oh also go out and see music. they have a fantastic rock scene. roma or centro. afterward have an al pastor taco. that is a specialty. also, go up on the plaza republica arch at sunset or torre latino tower anytime for great views.
Thanks for the tips.
I've already booked a hostel dorm, but I'm willing to arrange something if I meet a girl who doesn't have her own place.
Is the hookah lounge an expensive place? Not to sound parsimonious, but I'm on a budget - I'm traveling for six months via some light savings and freelance writing, so I can't afford to blow $100 on nights out and all.
I'll try to brush up on my Spanish but I only have a couple nights left before leaving. :/
Hopefully I'll learn a bit and get lucky at clubs, too. I almost hooked up with a woman in Ecuador who I approached after a ladies' night got out, but she turned out to be married and her husband came back home right before we were about to go in.
Those are really nice places if you want to go out to bars. It's full of art deco style houses from the last century, surrounded by a million little restaurants and shops. It's also full of parks, so it's pretty nice to walk there. Upper middle class neighbourhoods.
Purple places are just richer (not necessarily a good thing) and blue places are where the main attractions in the city are (museums, archaeological sites, historical places, etc.),
It really comes down to what you want to do.
Okay, thanks! Could you elaborate on why Coyoacan is worth seeing? Is there anything there but the university?
If you are talking about UNAM and university city, that's further south.
Coyoacan is the name of 1 of the 16 "boroughs" within the city, but when people talk about it, they talk about the historic centre of the borough. In times of the colony, and a good century after it, the historic centre of Coyoacan used to be a small comfy colonial town outside the city, and as the city grew in size, it got engulfed inside the City. It's full of big colonial houses, the Frida Kahlo museum is there a couple of blocks away from the house where Trotsky used to live (also a museum), it's full of traditional food stands like churros, it has bars and cantinas (Spanish style bars from a while ago), places where you can buy pulque (a traditional drink; quite good but with a weird consistency you probably wouldn't like if you are not used to it). It has a traditional market full of traditional and indigenous crafts and other interesting stuff. All surrounded by colourful houses with a nice colonial architecture. It's overall a nice place to hang out, but it can a little crowded at times. Although much less crowded than the historic centre of the city.
What phone carriers do you use internationally,
I'm planning on a huge roadtrip through europe,asia and africa and wondering what to use
I use AT&T and its shit
AT&T is one of the best abroad actually. I don't remember the cost, but if you call and ask they will sell you 'international' packs for a month or two that will let you piggy back off local networks in areas where they don't cover.
I like AT&T just fine in terms of coverage, but I find it a bit overpriced. (I'm the ideal customer in the sense that I just stick with it because I'm lazy--I've used AT&T in dozens of countries across Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe).
If your phone is unlocked, buying prepaid local SIMs is easy and cheap enough almost everywhere, but you will of course have to get used to having a bunch of new local phone numbers as you travel.
no extra charge for roaming -- no charge for data or text -- voice is .20 cents a minute
seconding Deutsche Telekom but my setup period with them was a little wonky
no one else I know has had issues, maybe because I brought the number in from one of their MVNOs
Going to FL, Orlando next week, where are some and fun places beside Disney would recommend for first timers.
Soupa Saiyan restaurant.
I just want different opinion rather from the search web
The best and "most important" museum in Florida is the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex. It's one hour east of Orlando.
A ton of smaller amusement parks that are actually a ton of fun
Universal CityWalk is free International drive has a ton of tourist stuff Lake Eola is a beautiful park with a 360 view of the downtown skyline Also there's a college or two so check out the bars in those areas
I am planning a trip to Taiwan for roughly 5 weeks towards the end of the year (September/October) and was wondering if I could get some advice or if people could tell me whether this destination is for me before I book flights etc... I am in the very preliminary stages of planning. I am really wanting this to be a proper adventure rather than a standard holiday and really want to get out of my comfort zone and challenge myself.
I have been learning mandarin for a year or so in a night class and I feel like I know enough to get by in terms of getting from A to B and ordering food etc and my hope is from immersing myself in the culture I will have to either sink or swim and I will hopefully come out of it being able to speak a passable amount of mandarin. Is there enough English spoken in the country that I will likely get lazy and not do this?
Also, I would be very keen on hiring a scooter or motorbike for my time there. I am an experienced rider, however having seen roads in China/Vietnam I do believe it is pertinent to ask the question: is this a good idea and am I going to die?
I am also a bit of a loose unit and like to drink and get my groove on. I am typically a fan of the more 'dodgy' 3rd world kind of travel destinations where my kind of reckless behavior is not only not frowned upon, but encouraged. What is the drinking culture like in Taiwan? I am getting mixed results from the preliminary research I have done online. Honestly, it would be a bit of a deal breaker if I couldn't get a bit loose while I was there.
I am a first time poster in /trv/ so I apologize if I am breaking any of the boards etiquette.
I've met some people who are really into clubbing, and I do think that is a pretty big thing, but bars are almost non-existent outside Taipei. It's definitely more popular to drink with friends inside or just walking around.
Yeah Taichung has some ones as well. Went to a pretty nice nightclub myself when I was there. Being white is pretty much an attraction inside too. Some guys get instantly mad at you.
Went to Tamsui today and saw all the George Mackay shit. He's a great man and it's strange and heart warming to see how well-loved he is there.
>impossible to have such a public dedication to a Westerner, let alone a Western missionary, in the PRC - the Cult of Mao forbids it! You can get The Black Bearded Barbarian for free on Gutenberg project. Any anons planning a trip here should read that book and then visit Tamsui. Plenty of old Colonial buildings there too. Always awesome - pic related. Off to Tainan at the end of the week. Looking forward to checking out Fort Zeelandia >read a book about that, too
Going to taiwan in a month. Decently prepared, still need to plan the 2nd half.
Any tips and tricks about anything and recomendations for places to visit are very, very, very welcome!
Hiking Xiangshan is much harder exercise than I thought it would be. Be ready for a hell of a lot of steps going up without much of the way in breaks between. Don't forget water.
Have five days free on a tour to eu, was thinking about going to Prague, how dangerous it is for a black man ?
The only 'danger' is some nazis might be jelly when their gf jumps on your dick. They're too afraid to do anything about it, though.
It's quite dangerous, but not as dangerous as Russia where you are likely to be knifed in the back by teenagers and the police conveniently "forget" about it. Stay away OP, or go and kys.
No intention to go anyway
I'll take that risk if they are cute
the leftmost girl looks scared to the bones
Western Europe might be cucked but Eastern Europe they beat the fuck out of niggers. Last time I heard they beat the fuck out of some spanish dude because they thought he was Arab
