This question often comes up in Iran-related threads.
If you go to Iran you are officially ineligible for ESTA. But what if you use a different passport? Many fear that the CIA knows everything, and in particular will use the flight database to find out.
Well, they don't.
I've just did it: went to Iran on one passport, then to the US on another with ESTA. No problems, no questions.
Also, went to Israel both before and after Iran.
>>1335302 >from what I gather, this should be fine too. Even two concurrent passports from the same country should work.
Eh, "from what I gather" is still not 100%, 2bh. I mean, it's the only option I have because I only have one passport, but I'd rather not get caught by Border Control.
What about traveling to Iran as a dual American/EU citizen? They can't ban me from America, can they?
Everything is fine for you, mate.
It's best to avoid both countries, plus Israel
>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration put new requirements in place on Friday for the 38 countries participating in the U.S. Visa Waiver Program, including that they use U.S. counterterrorism data to screen travelers, officials said. >The changes will apply to all countries in the program. One change is that they will be required to use U.S. information to screen travelers crossing their borders from third countries. Many countries in the program already do that, one administration official said. https://www.usnews.com/news/top-news/articles/2017-12-15/us-institutes-new-requirements-for-visa-waiver-program
Me and my millennial yuppie friends want to go "roughing it". But none of us cityfaggots knows the first thing about camping. What programs/guided tours/inclusive vacation packages are there for this type of thing?
I've heard of shooting/terror training touristy things that are run here in the US and Israel. Are there similar gigs for hiking or doing agricultural activities?
look up those trails all the people do
appalachian trail, that pcc shit they made a movie about....you can start and stop wherever you want.
I haven't done either but all the friends i have that gave it a shot remind of you and your post.
I think you want
. The only time I’m “roughing it” is if I have a bad connector and I have to sleep on the bench at the airport/train station.

Pro tip: if you hear banjos, paddle faster. It’s the ones without banjos ya gotta watch for.
I actually watched Deliverance and it's not that bad. 4chan desensitized me.
Booked Ireland for Tuesday, nothing planned outside of my first night's stay.
Would I be a fool to only visit the cities?
I had made these reservations some months ago as I was interested in relocating to Cork for work. This outlook is no longer current, and I can't say I have much excitement for the time I've now allotted there.
My various trips over the past year have mostly involved trekking in non-English speaking countries. Ireland appeared as a slower pace, and something I'd be able to easily enjoy without as much hassle.
I'm looking to be more social than isolated, as past travels have all been hiking/driving solo for long stretches. In aiming for this and sticking to Dublin/Cork/Belfast am I missing out?
this is shit.
first day go from dublin to kilkenny via the sally gap
second day go from kilkenny to kilarney for the day, then drive up and stay the night in Limerick
Third day go to the cliffs then end up in Galway
Fourth day go to Londonderry via Glenties and Dungloe/Dunlewey
Fifth day go to the causeway and the rope bridge, then spend the night in Belfast.
THE CITIES ARE SHIT (EXCEPT GALWAY)
FUCK THEM ALL
yeah you definitely need to add the cliffs. I was in galway and drove down the coast and it was pretty sweet. made a stop at a random beach and got my feet wet before seeing the cliffs and then ate at a little pub in some tiny ass town called doolin or some shit afterwards, it was good. Was with 3 other solo travelers, great fucking times.
When in belfast, travel up the coast to see giants causeway + the rope bridge and shit other anon mentioned. That drive was FUCKING TITS. Probably the most epic scenery I had on my trip while driving, just fucking sick as fuck. Dont miss out, its not even a full days worth. Fuck the cities. Belfast I got shitfaced with big muscle bearded dudes who dressed in drag and stumbled around town causing mayhem. Dublin is meme tier but worth seeing for that exact reason. Galway is THE shit and is the place to be in ireland. Killarney was tiny but cool nature shit, dont be a pussy - climb cardiac hill and see rainbows and shit from the top. Cork - idk, i got there after dark and ate pizza with strangers i made friends with at the hostel before flying to paris the next morning.
don't you mean Derry frienderino?
add Balina and Westport and this is perfect OP, happy Travels and enjoy my beautiful Homeland
OP, pick up a Rick Steves book. He's really got Ireland down to a science, probably his best guide of all of them. Go to the suggested stops/intinerary based on the length of your stay. It is generally considered 7 days for each section of Ireland, 7 for the south half, 7 for the northern half. I also suggest flying into and out of different cities. Delta is good for that with their heavy use of Shannon airport.
Using public transport is not ideal. Some of the best parts of Ireland are when you stop your car during the day and explore some ruins or vistas, old churches, or archaeological sites right off the side of the road between your towns to stay in, plus your choice of lunch along the way. I don't know how you could make your stay more social alone in a car unless you are really good at evening pub chatting. Irish in smaller towns do seem really nice to Americans, so odds are good you would at least get interesting conversation. Look for live music.
Hello, can you help me define how many days/hours I should devote to the cities in this map? Bear in mind my trip will be 14 days and I will start in London. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
You need 7 days dublin-kilarney (shannon) galway for a driving vacation. Fly into Dublin, and out of Shannon. You do 1.5 days in dublin and then hit the road with your rental car, stopping a night in each town as you round the SE, Southern and SW coasts. That IS how you see Ireland. Most people don't do Dublin and Belfast, but pick one, or else do a 14 day trip. If you are not going to drive around (or get on a tour bus), then Ireland isn't for you and you should stick to the rest of the UK where you can train it, or do longer city pursuits. Same can be said for Scotland. It's not a city destination, but a driving tour kind of vacation there as well.
I think London can be cram-packed into 4 days, and it is an expensive city, so people do hustle around and see a ton of the sights in long days. Your interests vary from others, and maybe it's food centric, history related, architecture, gardens, royal watching, or maybe you want to shop til you drop on gourmet goods. I think the rest of your city choices are 1-2 days each.
Either cut out Leeds or swap it for Newcastle
Glasgow is optional
Let us know a little more about what you want and I'll be happy to give my tuppence
I will make sure I do that, although going out at 1-2 am sounds risky, but yet I don't know so I will trust your advice. In London, I am planning on checking only the most common places.
It is strange that you mention I should go to Manchester, as almost everybody I've asked, has said that Manchester is ugly and stinky.
Fortunately I have been saving for quite some time so I don't have a problem in terms of $, but I still want to save as much as possible, though.
Thanks, these tips are very valuable. Picking Dublin or Belfast sounds logical. I am most interested in visiting historical places, museums, castles, gardens, etc. My wife and I usually walk a lot when traveling so that's not an issue. Food is definitely something i'm very interested.
Good idea. I will swap Leeds for Newcastle. Like I said in
, these are my interests: taking many pictures, sightseeing, food, gardens, museums, architecture, historical places. etc.
cancel Egland (its full of english people) and spend all your time in Glasgow, Belfast, Galway and Dublin. Also add cork because cork fucking rocks
I'm looking for honeymoon dedtinations in Europe. Somewhere a bit more original than Paris or Venice.
Any siggestions on some hidden gems or cheaper alternatives to the more well known destinations.
I'm thinking Italy but I'm open to suggestions
Lake Ohrid - FYRM
Sibenik or Hvar - Croatia
lol, too mainstream now
oporto is better op
You don't mention your objectives or interests.
Try Basque country or Catalonia if you like good food and outdoor activities. Try Sardinia if you want beaches without the usual crowds and resorts. Maybe the cities of southern Spain (Granada, Cordoba, Seville, Ronda, etc) don't count as original but they're cheap, and romantic as a motherfucker. Try a day trip to Tangier or Gibraltar. Or go fuck around the Algarve.
Requirements for weather? Very northern parts would be quite original if you get something off-season and outside skiing centerd and Chinese arctic first time seeing snow explorers. Lofoten in Norway, Swedish or Finnish Lapland...
Otherwise I would go for less known southeastern countries, Montenegro or Macedonia or Albania for instance. You would find beautiful nature in these countries for sure, only maybe less of a careless tourist destination where everyone speaks your language.
Have you ever discoveried delicious food/your favorite dish while travelling?
Like, something you had no idea existed suddenly becoming one of the most exquisite things you have eaten?
Yeah dude 10/10 one of the best drunk foods ever. Also, don't forget about currywurst!
I went to a Korean restaurant, didn't know what Korean cuisine was like (vaguely remembered that algae are a national dish). They had a promotion for a tasting menu, and I absolutely fell in love with a kind of spicy frittata that was the main dish. It had onion bits and vegetables in it, and went surprisingly well with soy sauce. Dunno what it was but it was fucking tasty

This plant comes from the Americas. You can find them easily in many countries in the continent, but with other names.

I'm flying to Las Vegas on December 23rd and will be flying from Las Vegas to Mexico (via Houston) on the 29th.
As I have been to Vegas before, I do not want to spend too much time there. Instead I want to rent a car and drive around and visit some interesting and/or beautiful places. For how many days exactly and where, I have not decided yet.
Since I'll be on my own and since it is difficult to rent a car with winter tires, I would like to avoid places with snowy roads. I have been to the Grand Canyon before and seen some of the national parks in Southern/mid Utah, so neither of these are a huge priority for me.
Other than that, I'm all up for your ideas. Any help is greatly appreciated!
I don't mind something that is 6-8 hour drive away, as I do not necessarily need to stay in Vegas all the days.
>>1336170 >don't want to spend time in vegas >don't want to spend time at grand canyon or other nearby n.p.s >don't want to drive in the snow
then why the fuck do you have 6 days in vegas in december?
I booked my tickets long ago and didn't really think about what I would actually be doing there.
I am in Milwaukee right now and direct flights to Vegas from Milwaukee are cheap, so instead of having to spend christmas here alone, I figured I'd do something fun.
Renting a car in Vegas is cheap too
Explore Death Valley, clearly. Winter is the best time. Even spring gets to hot.
Can we have a Christmas/NYE thread? What are the most interesting christmas destinations? What are your favorite christmas events around the world? Have any of you ever traveled solo during christmas and how was it?
I'll be traveling to Peru pretty much all the rest of December. I'll be in Lima and Cusco, as well as some surrounding areas.
Are there any last minute things I must see or do, specifically in Lima or Cusco?
Could be anything. Food, drink, entertainment, etc.
Also any general Peruvian advice you could give me would be great :)
Thank you so much!
chew the leaves or drink the tea mate de coca
Anyone been in Iquitos or northern Peru (coastside)and knows a nice travel route?
PACKED with tourists, only worth it if you have wheels and can do it late in the afternoon / sleep locally. Not as impressive as that photo but nice area nonetheless.
Peak hours: shoulder-to-shoulder with tourists on the trail. Hour after they leave: totally to yourself.
I had the coca tea many times, even the chewing with lime or whatever those pressed rock things are, didn't feel shit. Locals who are apparently hooked (otherwise they wouldn't be destroying their environment to grow it) claim they need it to live in the mountains, but I never felt any ill effects months in the andes without.
Anyhoo, re: Peru in general, everything a tourist on a schedule would want to see is around Cuzco, although if you have more than a week or so head to Arequipa the weather is much nicer.
Peru is 10/10 if you have time and a dirt bike, but for fly in tourism I'm not sure why so many bother.
There's no roads getting in to Iquitos so you have to fly or go via boat. Took a fast boat from Leticia then continued on via a cargo ship to Yurimaguas which I enjoyed a lot.
Spent two nights in Iquitos waiting for the second boat to leave. Only place in Peru I didn't enjoy really though it's unique as it's a semi-dilapidated outpost in the Amazon where you can still see traces of it's golden era from the rubber boom.
I would have loved to have spent more time around Chachapoyas, Gocta, and Kuelap but maybe next time.
On the coast there's Trujillo which has some cool pre-Inca ruins and a nice colonial center with access to the beach town of Huanchaco which could make for a good place to spend a few quiet days if the weather agrees.
Chiclayo is a shit hole and only has the Sipan museum to boast about.
Piura and Tarapoto should be avoided unless changes buses.
What's up y'all.
Long story short im hella rich now cuz my nerdy ass cussen bought some of those bitcoin for me a few years ago before he passed in a shooting accident by his little bro that didn't clear first. Anyway to make a long story short where can I go with white people and no brown that will try to rape me an my girl? I've never even left my home town.
Alaska, Iceland, Greenland, Japan, South Korea.
That's literally it.
Tons of Filipinos and Mexicans in Alaska.
