Looking to plan a trip to Morocco in Spring and I'm looking for advice.
Whats the best time to visit it?
How long should I spend there?
How expensive is it?
What are some cool things to check out?
Is western sahara worth visiting?
Places that I definitely need to see and places I definitely need to avoid( I already know Casablanca is shite)
Just general advice welcome. I'm a 20 year old paddy. I like nature and history, partying/drinking to a certain extent and hiking, even though I'm an out of shape sack of shit.
Been looking at Marrakech, Meknes, Chefchaouen, Cueta and Agadir mainly as well as stopping in Gibraltar on the way home
I will be staying in London for 2 days and am looking for a hotel near historic and old stuff.
I thought it might be cool to get a hotel in the City of London, am I making a right choice here is it not a nice vibe at all there?
I could also get one near Piccadilly and the royal palace etc.
I'm just looking for that classic fancy London setting with a some historic juice thrown over it, and obviously close enough to walk to a lot of the (touristic, I know) highlights.
When I recommend places to go in my local town, I steer people away from the overly expensive tourist places and send them to places where locals actually live and hangout. I don't want any of that for my London visit.
Would really appreciate any tips from some locals in London. Centrally located neighborhoods that are absolutely horrible I should stay away from? Old historic squares/parks that are super lively and cozy at night? Etc.
The only time I've stayed was yeaaaaars ago and I stayed near Elephant & Castle and hated the vibe there.
Hey /trv/, Burger living in the UK here. Have about 4 days next week to travel somewhere, not sure where I should go. Outside of the UK I've only been to the Normandy region in France (WW2 history trip) and Amsterdam, so i'm still inexperienced and haven't really figured out what I should be doing on trips short of walking around everywhere and seeing things/eating tasty local food. I'm interested in seeing some of these European Christmas Markets for the first time but not sure if any of the best ones will be up yet.
No real list of places i'm particularly keen to visit, but some things that have come up:
1. Luxembourg - Seems easy to do in a few days but looks like there's nothing really to do there.
2. Switzerland - Seems like an expensive country and outside of train rides through the mountains I'm not sure what i'd do there.
3. The Nordic countries - Amsterdam was boring after a day or so, if they're anything like that, pass.
4. Belgium - Bruges seems cool. Could spend a day or two there, then go to another city, not sure what to do beyond seeing the pretty buildings though, maybe brewery tours.
5. Just stay in the UK - Been to Edinburgh, York, London, Dover/Canterbury, and live near Cambridge so I haven't seen a ton yet. Saving Ireland for a longer trip in the spring so I can see the whole country when it's green.
6. Spain - Farther away but seem like several fairly distinct places I could visit, as well as some of the tiny islands off the east coast.
7. Italy - Like Spain, farther away and seemingly distinct cities.
I'm honestly still pretty nervous due being an inexperienced solo traveler (male), and only being able to speak English. I'm not rich but I don't have to pinch pennies, and I have some health issues so I can't go do any hardcore outdoor activity stuff but walking around all day is fine so long as it's not a grueling hilly walk. Not really looking for any long flights either, maybe two hours or so tops. Appreciate any suggestions, thanks.
