put whatever ur drugs are in a condom, make sure there is nothing that will be abrasive from the inside causing it to break open. swallow that shit. go through everything just fine. the scanners do not look inside the body as of right now outside a few in the uk. get to destination. play with your poop and find your drugs. it also makes you immune to cavity searches as it isnt near your ass for 99% of the time.
foolproof shit. it works. just don't act like a tard to the point that they not only buttsearch you but exray you and hold you for a really long time. You'd have to be really causing shit for that to happen.
I bring weed on the plane all the time. It's edibles though.
Being high on the plane sounds boring as hell desu.

Not in Australia, it's how you go through immigration now. Australian citizens get processed like their a barcode and never talk to humans anymore. Customs/Quarantine is a bit different.
Honestly it's also a great way to visit the city. Finding a deal and a smoking spot is the best way to meet people and find cool places.
>popular tourist places you have 0% interest in ever visiting, even for free.
Not even a "we wuz kangz", but it has a lot of history. It just isn't taught. I saw this documentary on PBS recently and learned a lot of stuff I never knew.
Even the HIV thing varies by country. Your reasons are your reasons, but they are primarily based misconceptions/mistruths.
What's funny is many of the classic, most rich, /trv/ threads, have been based in Africa, as far anons relating interesting stories of their travels
I went to South Africa with my school when I was eighteen and it was the most beautiful and exciting trip ever
>Staying on a nature reserve >Lions fighting a zebra next a restaurant >Van breaking down in the worst part of Soweto >Staying with a range of families, some got put with poor some with rich. I got put in a weird Christian household/security complex with dobermans and promise rings >Visiting classrooms in Jo'burg and meeting and chilling with some kids actually excited about learning
Was so cool. I've visited Egypt and Morocco as well and both trips were cool as well
Most people on /trv/ who trash Africa have never been. It's the only continent bar Antarctica that hasn't been played out/ruined by tourists
My pick in respect to the thread theme though is New York. I'm from London and it just looks like I'd be doing very similar stuff there to what I do back home and I hear the US backpacker scene is poor. I want to check out New Orleans though at some point
I want to see Morocco at some point, and probably Namibia as well. Besides that I think seeing the Serengeti would be nice.
Interesting cities in Africa:Mombasa,Malindi,Zanzabar,St. Louis,Kano.
Post your funny or memorable greyhound experiences here. I'll start:
Bus driver left me at the Canada/US border because my questioning took too long.
He didn't even say a word, as I went out, he was already gone.
A driver from another company took me the rest of the way to Seattle for free.
Had to use this shit company 3 more times before I left the continent.
I don't know this meme. Is this Louisianian code for something?
>>1227445 >Not knowing the name of the most fabulous drag queen ever
The LA station is so awful. Like smack dab in the middle of Skid Row, the place with the largest homeless population in the US.
The buses are okay but the area is sketchy as fuck even in the broad daylight.
I know the names of a few drag queens, not that one.
I'm not sure how dude in OP is a drag queen though.
I thought that the Union Station was the new bus terminal.
Hello /trv/, I am in the early stages of planning a trip to Moscow and the Golden Ring, as of now, my idea is to stay in Moscow for a week and to backpack through the towns of the Ring. I also plan on going to Korolev, in order to visit the Vostok 1 capsule, however, the only Tripadvisor review says it is open to Russians only so I'm still not sure if I should waste my time with something I probably won't see. I was also thinking of going to Dubna in order to see what wikipedia calls "the second largest statue of Lenin", can't find information on which one is actually the largest. Can you recommend me some interesting destinations, things to try, any tips in general, if possible, I would love to see some less touristy places. Any help will be appreciated.
When you're going to come here? I'm muscovite and I'd help you. Also I'm interesting in having a foreighner friend too (for language practice).
I'm going to SPb for a week from 22 to 30.07. SPb is ultimate nice city that has to be visited.
Don't waste your time on Ivanovo if you're not a russian constructivist architecture addict. I really don't know why this city listed in GR. It has absolutely no any ancient locations and buildings, the city was found as a textile manufactory workers settelment in XIXc on the place where had been ordinary small village of XVIIc. Anyway, constructivist buidings are nice but stay in decay now.
You should check out Gremyachiy saint spring next door to Sergiev Posad and spring of St Irinarch near to Borisoglebsky. Very cozy locations, I love to visit it from time to time.
Golden Ring is an itenerary for around a week:
Moscow - Vladimir
Vladimir - Suzdal
Stay in Suzdal
Suzdal - Ivanovo - Kostroma
Stay in Kostroma
Kostroma - Yaroslavl
Yaroslavl + Rostov day trip
Yaroslavl to Moscow
All the trips between the cities are 2-3 hours by local trains or buses. You could stay in Ivanovo and day trip to Plyos and Shuya (I managed to do it on the same day in summer). Pereslavl-Zalesskiy is the only official Golden Ring town where I haven't been. From Moscow you can day trip to Sergiev Posad and Kolomna/Zaraysk (I actually quite enjoyed Zaraysk, it's like deep sleepy province but still located in Moscow region and has a small fortress with little pieces of farming land inside).
If you have 30 days and wish to postpone the northern part for another visit, you could as well go to Volga basin region: Kazan, Yoshkar-Ola, Cheboksary, Nizhny Novgorod.
By the way, the biggest statue of Lenin is in Volgograd, near the beginning of Volga-Don channel. There used to be a statue of Stalin of equal size there, but it was taken down on the day when the city was renamed, and replaced with Lenin a few years later. Pic related.
Do you speak Russian? I am quite interested in traveling around Russia and I think the main tourist interest stuff you could see in 2 months of traveling. But without a basic level of Russian I'm a bit put off, I recently visited Prague and not being able to order in the restaurants or read stuff in more smaller museums is just boring when I could just travel to Latin America and understand it all.
Thank you for the information, sadly I think the earliest I can make the trip will be in 2019. I already have other stuff planned for this summer, the initial plan was doing it during the next summer, however, due to the World Cup it will probably be twice as expensive and overcrowded. I doubt I'll be able to afford it, seeing that I don't want to visit Russia in the winter, realistically I believe the earliest I can do is May/June 2019. If I am lucky enough to get a scholarship I might do it next spring, but it's not really a big possibility.
Useful information, thank you. I was looking at pictures of Sergiev Posad and it looks like a lovely place. If you are saying I can do Golden Ring in one week I might be able to do something along the lines of 1 week Moscow, 1 week Golden Ring, 1 week St Petersburg. Will probably need 3-4-5 days to see everything I'm interested while in Moscow and STP without rushing and the rest of my stay there will be day trips to near towns. Kolomna and Zaraysk both look great from what I see on google images.
I only speak a little bit of Russian, but I can read and understand almost everything. I suppose most of the big cities will have a lot of English speaking people so the language will not be a problem while there, as for the small ones, I suppose I'll just have to do my best to communicate with the locals.
Something I want to do is go to a Russian bath, is it worth it as a tourist experience? What are some other more unusual things that I can try?
Kolomna and especially Zaraysk are really worth. The second one is my favorite town in Moscow region though. However Dmitrov and Volokolamsk are not bad too. Also Moscow region has some more small but cute locations - museums, estates, springs, towns, monasteries, etc. From town to town you actually could go by backpacking, it's easy to do it out of 20-50km limit around Moscow where people isn't so mercantile and avid as muscovites are. Mass transportation out of big cities and far from radial ways go from and to Moscow is not in very good condition and russians are commonly very hospitality and helpful. Yes, you probably could have some problems in communication with locals without speaking Russian far from big cities. It is the same problem in whole Europe maybe except Scandinavia. In Golden Ring towns is some tourist infrastructure with English-speaking staff, but it is commonly a bit expencive as it seems to me, locals-oriented infrastructure may be cheaper. Anyway, Russians are really very hospitable and locals often will try to help you if you ask.
Do you guys upload your journeys to tumblr at all?
New to it and thought I'd enjoy following some of your travels.
Also any good recommendations would be great too!
I'm doing a road trip across the US with my father in late April to visit his brother in Tennessee (I live in California). The original plan was to drive out there, spend a week, I would catch a flight home, and he would drive back. I booked a flight last December with American Airlines while the rates were still decent. Because of some recent health concerns, my father can't make the return trip back solo so I'll be helping him drive back now. I figured everything would be okay with just cancelling the flight, until the person I spoke with said that there was a $200 cancellation fee. Da fuq? I mean, I'm essentially being charged to no longer fly with them, which seems absolutely ridiculous. To me, it's like purchasing a movie theater ticket and then not going, so the theater charges you for not watching the movie. Anyway, am I just screwed on this? They say they will give me credit on the cost of a new ticket for the original purchase price, but I have no upcoming flights. I just want to be out $179 I paid for flight and be done with it, not $179 + $200 fee.
Pic related, it's what I feel like I'm doing.
That was the trip I went on last year. Everything the same except my dad and I were coming from tennessee to California. Be sure to go to the grand canyon if you haven't already and go down route 66. It's fun at night because there is almost no one on the road and when you do see headlights, they are visible for what seems like ages before you meet the car. I had so much fun on that trip.
When you get to tennessee, if you are going past exit 163 look up piney canoe camp. I love that place and if you like the outdoors it is amazing. It might be a little cold in late April but it's still fun and beautiful. Anyway I hope you and your dad enjoy your trip.
I understand the idea of charging a change fee, but is there really a cancellation fee?
>book a cheap non-refundable flight for $180 6 months out >1 month later, don't need the flight >call to cancel, eat the $180, free up the seat
Will they actually charge me $200 for this? I'm getting confused here.
>>1226986 >It prevents, or offsets, the cost of someone holding a reservation without taking it, because airlines could sell that to someone else.
I've purchased the ticket already though; shouldn't it just be the lost cost of the ticket that I'm responsible for? Whether my butt is in 24C or not the seat has been paid for, that's why it makes no sense to me that they're adding on a fee.
Thanks Anon! I actually went to college in Flagstaff and we're spending some time there so I'll make sure to add that in.
Also, to the anon that keeps calling me a retard, I'm well aware of the point you are trying to make, but the ticket is a contract and fees writen into it don't just disappear just because I want them to be that way.
The answer is apparently yes with AA, you do get a fee
You aren't reading closely enough. This is OP's belief:
1. He paid $180 for a ticket.
2. He decided he no longer wants that ticket, and calls to cancel that.
3. He is being told by the agent that he will have to pay $200. That is, he will need to give the airline 200 EXTRA dollars just for the privilege of not having his ass in the seat. On top of not getting credit towards future flights.
Or, imagine you're an hour late to your flight. Of course you won't get a refund or credit for your ticket, but OP is alleging that you'd be charge $200 on top of that as well. Just because the seat is empty.
I've cancelled a day before a flight before on AA, there is no such fee. The 200 is deducted from the cost of the flight and you get the remainder in the form of credit. If your flight cost less than 200, you get 0.
I'm in the Phils, and want to purchase some dick pills aka viagra.
How much are they, are they cheaper here than other countries? And are they OTC at all the pharmacies?
Well, for me Jakarta is leagues better than Manila. It has more than one decent neighborhood, it's much cheaper, it now has hundreds of inexpensive but quite posh restaurants, it's growing economically and becoming more comfortable. I visited Jakarta twice in 2011 and 2016, and in five years streets became more walkable, many slums I had visited disappeared, traffic jams became smaller. Manila when I visited in 2015 was worse than Jakarta in 2011.
>Lets be honest, the infrastructure in Phuket, Bali etc is only there because Australians have paid for it.
In Thailand you can find decent infrstructure even in small non-touristic towns, though it won't be English-friendly. You'll have to look hard to find bad roads, poor mobile coverage or electricity power outages anywhere in Thailand. In Indonesia it's not so good yet, though major islands are surprisingly developed.
You are actually in the Philippines, and in a much better position to answer that than anybody else.
Phone a pharmacy.

Don't believe HDI that much
Baguio is pretty much like Latin america

Manila's HDI isn't high
I live in Latin America
then the slums of Latin america
On Friday I am taking my first Cruise,
Could you please give me some tips about the life aboard?
I have a planned tour around Havana, but I don't have any idea of Jamaica and Cayman Islands. What could I do?
And any other Information you consider important
Hi guys, I'm looking for some tips and recommendations for my upcoming trip.
So in a week I leave for Shanghai and will be there for 7 days, then I go onto Hong Kong for 5 days. I'll be on my own in Shanghai but will be meeting a friend in HK and they'll take me around to see stuff.
What should I do and see in Shanghai? I'm staying at a hostel that is centrally located. I'm not seeking advice about 'how to travel' or 'traveling on my own' cause I've down plenty of that - recently went to Malta and Stockholm on my own, great times..
If there is anything I should know in particular in regards to China - cultural norms, etiquette etc. then please say so.
I'm a 6 ft white male aged 24 from Canada but currently living in Europe if that helps!
Hope to get a decent discussion going. Also, if people want it to be a 'China' or 'Dude travelling alone' or 'Where should I go?' thread then no problem..
Don't know your intrests but 7 days in Shanghai could get kinda boring. Maybe cut it down to 3 days and fly via Bejing to Hong Kong. Did it vice versa last year. Also don't miss Macao.
Ah yeah.. sorry about that - didn't put my interests.
Well I'm actually going to Shanghai to interview someone for my thesis so that is the primary reason. I like history, art, (study philosophy) and basically just want to see some major sites, get a feel of the culture.
I've heard Hangzhou and Suzhou are cool spots to check out..?
>>1226938 >I've heard Hangzhou and Suzhou are cool spots to check out..?
They are and they're close enough to Shanghai. Suzhou is close, Ningbo is close, Putuoshan is accessible by ferry.
Shanghai has clubbing I guess, you should have some fun there if you're young and fit. Local babes aren't impressed by foreigners necessarily but if you compete on your own terms then it's still a good time.
You can always check the China general for more info, there's also a Hong Kong thread. There aren't seven days of stuff to do in Shanghai.
I want to take VIA across Canada. Im having trouble finding detailed information on their website about different classes of tickets. Economy looks cheap and it looks like you get decently comfortable seats. The trip is about 3 or 4 days from Van to Que. Im planning on stoping a few days (according to schedules it looks like the mod west section of thr train runs through about every 2 days) in Jasper and Toronto then off and on throgh mont. ottawa and quebec flying home after.
Has anyone experience with the VIA, will it be hell going that long in economy? Hows the food over that whole time? Suggestions?
have you looked at
you'll arrive in jasper after one night, so even if you didn't sleep too well, you'll be ok to recharge in jasper
but after that it's 3 consecutive nights, I've done connsecutive nights on train seats, but not that route
it really comes down to how well you can sleep reclined instead of lying down
pack a bunch of heavy snacks like pepperoni, cheese and nuts, gatorade too
I really wouldn't have my hopes up much for most of the trip, Edmonton-Winnipeg is a lot of farms and Winnipeg-Toronto is a lot of forests, unless you REALLY like trains it might be better to fly Edmonton-Toronto
this vid seems ok
note the landscapes before 3:20 a lot of second growth forests and farms
the age of the passengers is fairly representative of train travel outside commuter areas in north america
That's a really informative link thank you.
I'm Canadian, I know full well what's between Edmonton and Toronto. I, however, am set on seeing my country during it's 150th birthday.
I might break it up with one more stop in the middle though, undecided still.
