So my fiancee and I are set to get married in August 2020. We were considering having our honeymoon on a Pacific island because it's not that far away and the climate would be comfortable, but it's still be something different (we're both Australians).
I'm interested in architectural history, both pre- and post-colonial. My fiancee is very much into nature, both aquatic and terrestrial. We both like relaxing on quiet beaches and not dealing with too many people where possible.
Given all this, what might be a good choice of island to go with?
It doesn't seem to match your preference.
Compared to the others, it lacks distinct culture, and is usually overcrowded with tourists. Mostly from Australia.
Don't take that the wrong way, I'm just recommending you the places where you'll fbe the most comfortable out of all of them.
Anon, there is nothing in it for the male. Please reconsider because you are tossing your life in the trash right now.
She will come out of this fine but you will not.
I see. Thanks for clarifying.
>>1496190 >t. incel
I'd say there's just as many chads and maybe even more who think this way rather than incels, sorry mate.
Please anon, dont just toss off advice as coming from an incel.
I am trying to save you from the mistakes I have made.
I have kids I do not get to see but I must work overtime to pay child support .
I am a slave and my ex wife HATES me.
When I went on my honeymoon in iceland I was sure it would last forever...
i stay 11 days in bangkok, any suggestion? things to do?
I booked my guesthouses near the National Stadium BTS. Siam right next to it would be good as well. Its where the two skytrain routes meet and fairly close to the Old City.
Take the tourist ferry from one end to the other and see the National Palace and what not. You can take the skytrain to connect to the subway which will put you near one of the ends of the ferry. Check out some of the malls like Terminal 21. Malls aren't dying in Asia like they are in the US. Just see as much as you can of the city. Khao San Road is what you'd expect. See it, but don't spend too much time there.
if you can, try and spend some time outside of Bangkok, even if it's just to Hua Hin or similar
I try to leave BKK as soon as possible.
>>1496051 >11 days in bangkok
noone has that much stamina

So fuck them on here then.
Ok /trv/, my gf and I have just booked a 6-day trip to Cancun. The only things we have in our minds is swim with the dolphins (her) and go to Chichén Itzá (me). Other than that, what must see stuffs would you recommend for a budget couple? I speak Spanish (she doesn't) and it's her first international travel.
No it's 500 pesos
yo, I'm off to NYC in the next couple hours and I don't have a set plan. what does /trv/ have to say? any ideas?
go to McSorley's and get hammered
McSorley's can be fun if you get a seat. But keep in mind it's super busy Friday and Saturday night, and closes early for bar standards (1AM).
I think it would be a cool thing to do on a Sunday or weekday evening.
Why bump now? OP has probably already been and gone by this point, without ever visiting Grant's Tomb.
because we often have discussions that help out other potential travelers. Well, aside from the fact this board is filled with incels who give bad advice

So I just came back home from a 2 week trip to California, and I have the blues, very intense, bad ones. Like feeling my chest heavy and having watery eyes all day bad.
I'm from South America so these trips are very sparse and special, often years apart, I guess it makes it sadder. I've been on other countries before, but i've never felt this bad before after a trip. It was just too good, and the thought of coming back, it hurts so so bad.
Is this normal? Am I fucking retarded for feeling like this? Any tips?
Like i really want to kill myself rn.
Yeah, just like movies, music, every fucking hobby out there
I've never really experienced this. It helps if you can travel regularly but I understand if it's not possible for a lot of third worlders who don't make much. I go crazy if I don't do something for six months. It does make me sad that I've visited places I'll likely never return to, if only because there are so many other places to see.
I live in a place that many people travel to (South Florida) and it boggles me why there's anything special about this because it's so fucking expensive here. The best I can get at is the beach and water sports, so if anyone has traveled here for vacation or wants to, what are some things you could do that perhaps I've never tried as a local?
>>1492664 >any tips
Go to Malawi or something. Get a job there. Expat is kind of like permanent vacation.

No wonder you're miserable
I'm planning on spending the majority of one day in the Louvre, another day I'm going to walk past the Eiffel tower (afaik a tourist trap, still want to see it). Apart from that I don't have any major plans. Just want to experience the city, visit a few used book shops, eat good food.
Any recommendations for a ~4 day solo trip this winter?

Shakespeare and Company is actually quite old, but since it's so close to Notre dame it adapted to the environment.
If you want to wander through the city a ballad on the Quai de seine is almost always worth it. that and the Quartier Latin are always good for a walk. Stop at the Arenes de Lutèce (old roman ruins converted into a park.) if you want a quiet, cozy park to chill a few minutes in. Should you have gotten there in summer you'd have seen poeples playing pétanque and kids around but hey, still good to visit.
Came back there to pass some entry exams. Avoid gare du nord at all costs,especially during rush hour as it somehow got worse. im not even sure how they managed that

Are there any particularly great entertainment events that would make for a memorable evening? Operas, musicals, small concerts, small art galleries, regular shows, live music in bars, something like that?
Catacombs are good to check out if you're into macabre stuff. There's a LOT of bones there. If you go, do get an audioguide, it's got a few interesitng stories about the place. The wait lines can be the most terrifying part of your visit, though.
Also, I recommend going to Tour Montparnasse for the best panoramic view of the city. Pic very related. If you just want to wander around some nice places, go to Montmartre. It's got a special feel, somewhat different even from the rest of Paris. And do go on a free tour, the guides tell lots of interesting stuff that you can't usually find out yourself.
check bandsintown and see if there's anything you're into music-wise. for small art galleries, Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire features some interesting stuff but it's smaller than small, like two small floors tucked away in the back of a courtyard small.
Best thing I did was to just buy cheap bottles of wine and walk around and see the city. Get lost.
Which one would you pick between those 3, for sightseeing and such?
and if in summer?
Finally, a comparison between two cities of three cities I actually know about. I lived in Boston and have visited Nola many times. I am so incredibly excited about telling you this information. First of all, your question is incredibly vague and straight up retarded. Just Google it. If you want American Revolution shit, go to Boston. If you want French shit go to Nola. Nola is huge crime, but party atmosphere. Everyone loves one another, cause it's southern. Boston is as New England as it gets. Both have great weather but I'd say Boston wins because it's not as hot and you get snow. If Nola would get its act together and squash the crime I'd move there, but as of now Boston is a way better city. Nola has way more culture, tho.
Does it look like the pictures or not at all?
St. Augustine is pretty cool but gets wicked crowded during the summer. It's really pretty right now with their Night of Lights festival
This anon is basically right
Yeah that's Bourbon Street I think.
It's basically up to you. They're three very different questions. I'm guessing you're not American? If you're not a burger I'd say that you'd probably get the most out of New Orleans. It's really cool. There's some really delicious Creole food in hundred year old restaurants, the French Quarter has a really cool vibe, and you can drink on the street. It's awesome but also a town you can get in a lot of trouble in if you're a dumbass.
Boston is a big American city. There are a lot of historic sites if you're into the Revolutionary era. I also think its the most livable major city in the Northeast. There's really something for everyone there, and its not a big congested theme park like Manhattan is. That being said, it doesn't have as much of a unique character as NOLA does.
I have no idea why you want to go to Saint Augustine besides a few really cool historic sites its a meme beach town filled with old people.
I’m an American currently in Japan who has a layover one the flight home in Toronto. The layover is 15 hours and our airline got us a hotel to stay at that’s connected to the airport. I’m pretty sure that we don’t get our checked bags for that night, but I’m concerned mainly about customs and immigration. I guess that I’ll have to go into Canadian immigration to stay in Toronto for the night?
Try that with your carry on.
You'll be a visitor Canada for a few hours.
I never declared anything same I'm under duty limit in terms of value so I never really state anything. You can state it, they'll probably just as "it's not over 200/800/1600" forget what it is if transitioning from Canada but I think it still remains 800 USD in total value of goods.
>They are declared to CBP. If you do not declare something that should have been declared, you risk forfeiting it. If in doubt, declare it.
From the website, you risk the ability of losing it. Chances of them actively trying to tally up the value of the shit you got? Practically 0, when you see how many asians come in through customs and their huge fucking carts of shit try to go through you'll realize you're nothing
Why? no where was I ever talking about a carry on, you can't and don't do that.
This is about the OP, not about you.
There are 3 posters so far.
I really don't care how you conduct your business, but it'd be really shitty if the OP lost their booze because he took your posts of 'advice' and loses his booze.
There's no harm in investigating, providing scenarios, and asking questions, but just spewing something out there with booze/shit at risk doesn't seem that productive.
I don’t care to try and cheat the system, just not worth it to me.
The real easy way to solve this is
>put booze and shit in checked luggage >wait till you get home before drinking >anything you think you need during your layover put in carry on
Going to Thailand in a few days. Coming from a cold and dark country.
Is there a certain place in Bangkok where we could leave our winter clothes for two weeks with a low cost?
Thank you for your contribution
I have lost the fur of my ancestors, and only have plundered wool to compensate. The wastes of the north permit no life, save for cockroaches and man, albeit barely.

But anon, humans are literally Ice Age animals. Cold tolerance is like a muscle you can exercise. Note that walruses, too, are furless. It’s all about the brown fat cells, baby. I unironically recommend listening to Wim Hof’s episode on JRE, he lays down his research, method, and the benefits pretty well.
