Going to Berlin for 10 days to visit my brother who is living there for 4 months. Any recommendations for stuff to do? I'm 25, male, and unfortunately don't speak any German (this trip was sprung on me as a surprise by my parents, so I haven't had time to really learn anything). My brother (20) speaks a bit.
Things I'm mostly interested in:
Parks/nature, interesting looking buildings/architecture, city history, food, restaurants, music (not club/dance music. I mean german traditional music)
Somewhat interested in: Art, drinking/bars, general shopping
Not at all interested in: clubs, parties, dancing, raves, discos, hookups, etc
Since it's a bit of a family thing I will probably be with my parents the whole time. We're New York City natives so we are used to dense urban areas, but none of us besides my brother have been to Germany and I've never even been to Europe. Any general travel tips (restaurant tipping? Will people care how we dress? etc)
Yeah, it looked pretty boring from what I read. The picture really puts it in perspective, thanks.
>Parks/nature, interesting looking buildings/architecture Why do you pick the biggest city of a country if you are into nature? Though, Berlin is very green and has big parks. Completely wrong pick, though. You realize that most bigger German cities and population centers where bombed to ashes during the world war? There isn't much older architecture left apart from some reconstructions. If you want to have the timber frame house experience and see some traditional German architecture you have to go to other, more minor cities, mostly in southern Germany. Berlin is only good for two reasons: clubs, parties, dancing, raves, discos, hookups, drugs(pretty much everything you don't want to experience) and for people that are into modern and cold war history.

>>1228670 >There isn't much older architecture
Actually there are more castles, palaces and old buildings in the Berlin area then in all of America. Quite some older then the US.
Again, we're going to be staying in Berlin because we're visiting someone there, as I said in the OP.
Also, further question: My plans changed a bit and now 4.5 days in Copenhagen will be added to the trip. Any recs there based on what my interests are in the OP?
That's a great city to rent a bike and ride around.
You should spend some time in Christiania.
List some cool stuff in or near Cancun, please!
Ideally, some interesting stuff that could not be found on a top 10 things to do in Cancun list. The kind of word-of-mouth attractions you can only hear about from 4chan, and no, I don't mean child brothels.
Along the same lines, is there any online resource that gives obscure but cool attractions of cities?
Japan: Weird as fuck...literal definition of weird, off-putting, creepy and just all around degenerate.
England: Totally miserable weather, miserable people, chavs.
France: Pretentious dickheads, Paris is a literal shithole outside of the Eiffel tower
The entire section of central Europe.:Pretty much the twilight zone...otherwise pretty nice...Definitely underrated.
Australia: I liked it...Australia didn't like me though.
New Zealand: I liked it....Didn't stay long.
Assuming the extremes, that's $12 for a sandwich and $8 for a beer. Put together, that's $20.
Wow, anon was only off by $5.
Had less to do with small talk and more to do with the bizarre conversations they kept starting with me.

They have a sizable Muslim population, but >they don't cause trouble for anyone. >but I have yet to see Hong Kong come up in shitposts about "cultural enrichment"; it's always UK or Sweden that has it the worst.
Trust me bruh, the shitposting is in another language, which is why you avoided all this shit.
Hong Kong is arguably one of the most xenophobic cities I've come across, bordering on Swiss levels of arrogance. Then again, I speak Cantonese and am not a gweilo.
Not him, but white people are still at the top in terms of social status right? People just discriminate against different types of asians?
It's the fact that casual racism isn't taboo if its banter, a lot of foreigners can't tell when the banter stops and starts. Its harder if English isn't your first language. I mean when you joke with your mates everything is fair game as long as said in jest.
Let's talk computing devices. What do you bring with you when you travel? Phone, tablet, laptop, or some combination? Why? What are some good features for a traveler?
I take my 13 inch laptop only if I need it. If not, just my smartphone.
iPad Pro 12.9 inch w/ keyboard and my iPhone.
It really depends on the length and distance of the trip for me. I do a lot of day/overnight trips into Phoenix and LA (from Vegas) for business and pleasure. In that case, I generally don't even pack a bag and will just pocket my cellphone and MAYBE my 3DS. I enjoy being as minimalist as possible there.
On a longer trip, if it's for work, I'll bring my laptop, but work or not, I always bring my iPad, iPhone, and 3DS (now Switch). Internationally/one week or more, I bring all. I'm a little addicted to my computer and feel uncomfortable if I'm away from it with just my iPad for too long. I carry a little squid thing that charges a backup battery and my phone as long as I have a USB port, then they can charge each other. Most important things in my arsenal.
I only take an airbook or something with a full keyboard if I must on a trip. It can become a hassle for safety reasons, to either lug around, park in a safe or worry about.
I never travel without my 7" hdx kindle though. The smartphone could be good enough, but I like the long battery life of a tablet too, like reading in bed and planning the next day's activities while the phone charges up.
Depends on how long I'll be traveling for and whether I'm in a relationship.
I had a break-up back in August, so I'm not as obligated to have a smartphone any more. Having said that, I'll still probably bring one along on my two week trip to Ecuador while leaving my laptop behind.
I have another trip over the summer planned that'll be longer. Since I'm a student and freelance writer, I'll need to take my laptop so I can earn a bit and keep on top of my online classes.
Hitchhiked across Europe in 2014 without either a laptop or smartphone. Was a golden fucking time, to be honest.
Is it possible to get good deals over there now due to the lack of tourists?
It seems like it might be a great time to visit if that is the case, along with a weak euro.
I'd like to visit Disneyland France, but I don't want to get in the middle of a happening.
because the government will pay me to go to the middle east and i even get a gun
Still the most visited country in the world...
No. Still expensive as fuck.
Also a gorillion chinese are still visiting.
I'm heading to the UK this year and I've heard London women are stuck up, so I'm wondering which are the easiest cities to get laid.
I don't even care if they're fatties or non-white.
How attractive are you? And what nationality? I might be able to hook you up
I suggest Manchester. Or you can go with essex. In Essex The Girls Are Either Bimbos or Somewhat Decent. Mainly all blonde.
In my experience you won't find any attractive English women south or east of Birmingham. Native girls all have this strange facial structure reminiscent of a pug or a fish.
Adele has this basic structure, but she got lucky with some redeeming features. Of course you'll have a hard time finding anyone in London who isn't Asian or Polish.
Don't go to Manchester, all i saw was veiled muslim women
Somewhere rough probably, like Preston or Newcastle
What's some interesting cities or towns that's at least 5 hours away from Toronto to visit for a road trip?
I have to stay in Canada for it, Ottawa is a boring piece of shit city.
Please help. I need to go on a long trip.
wait, scrap the kingston idea. I misread your first sentence
Well right now I'm thinking about going to Tobermory, it's about 3 hours from me and from what I'm reading it has some cool natural sights
Killarney Provincial park is nice too. They probably have the closest things to mountains within a decent drive on Toronto
I'm in Sault Ste Marie and it's pretty nice wrt nature here. Not much else.
You can go to New York over night in 7 hours, I did this, ask me if you need info about this initiary.
who cares about north korea
I think I'll visit soon before it goes to shit -- but I don't give a fuck about the locals 2bh.
>>1228564 >I come from a world you don't understand
I answered all your questions correct, come from a neutral country and like the concept of communism. Did I win a free trip to North Korea?
i ll travel to thailand in two months and considered fucking some prostitutes there. how much is it? is it safe in regards to criminality? are the prostitutes doing it by their own will or is it forced (then i wont do it)? where to go to fuck prostitutes?
people like you ruin thailand for people like me you fucking whore mongerer
>>1228871 >people like you ruin thailand for people like me you fucking whore mongerer
>>1228871 >tfw fueling local economy
i'm just trying to enjoy my noodles while you fucks brag about fucking hookers in restaurants ruining my meal, can't even go in public without some white trash talking about fucking whores
Don't bother. It's all over. They're cracking down.
Happy Zones now, Happy Zones tomorrow, Happy Zones forever.
although now I just feel like some sort of vicarious cuck
Amazing video! Guy is making the most of every minute he's got. My favorite thing about going places is meeting people like this. Gonna have to watch more of this stuff.
Just spent the whole night binging on his videos. Great share, anon!
Lol when he took that drink. The kind of person you hope to meet on your travels.
