What are the best things to do in Brazil? I'm going for 3 months middle of July to middle of October, going to book my plane at the end of this week. I'll probably fly into Fortaleza since it is the cheapest airport.
I've been to Rio, SP, Ilha Grande, Paraty and Iguazu already.
Probably not a good time to visit Br, people are being attacked by truckers.
Which parts of this map are flights, and what parts auto?
You should use different colours.
Also try to explore Roraima, you can skip Pará an Maranhao desu
Yeah my parents aren't even the easily scared boomers either, they drove inland from Minas where my brother lived to the Pantanal.
If you want to go, just go. You'll probably be fine.
I wanted to do most by bus and fly to Noronha and from Manaus to Mato Grosso. From Belem to Manaus I want to go by boat. I found some travel company that does trips to Roraima mountain from Boa Vista and other tours. Looks pretty stunning the landscape.
I'll probably go. Maybe I'll avoid Fortaleza and Natal.
I want to expend one day in Curitiba, mostly for the botanic garden. ... How far is Iguazú of Curitiba?
Hi guys! I have long wanted to improve my English, but without real communication it is very difficult. I had such an idea: I want to invite an English-speaking guy to visit me. I will pay for the apartment next door to me, I will organize leisure, maybe a little trip around Russia. In return I ask for several hours of live communication a day.
I am 27 years old, male, married, not gay. I live in St. Petersburg.
Is it interesting for you?
Male, 23, not gay. Native speaker from Canada, no accent. Give me your email or something if you're interested

As in жeнщины? Count me in!
Srsly, tho, I've been trying to learn Russian on Duolingo for a few months now. Willing to practice over Skype occasionally if I can ever get it working.
Horosho dawg how long you thinking for this trip?
For how many days do you want the lessons?
So In about a month I will be going to Holland to visit family. I've never met them before accept for one cousin. I've never really considered my self to be part Dutch or European before.
What kind of stuff could I do over there? What is the night life like ? Are the women cute? I know you can some weed over there but other than that I got no clue what to expect.
Yes you can smoke weed
No you don't need a pass
Eindhoven is ok but not very exciting or beautiful
We do give a fuck: do not be a nuisance to others. Don't scream or visibly inebriated during the day.
I should be there last week next month. For few days with friends.
I'm from 's-Hertogenbosch, live in Nijmegen. Could meet up or give you guys a tour of Den Bosch if you're up for it.
Eindhovenaar here, foreigners can buy weed. I suggest buying from the Pink. if you like nightlife you have to visit Stratumseind, loads of pubs in that street. Don't expect to find any good dutch history in this town. It's pretty new, got huge cus of Philips back in the day.
Which smartshop do you recommend in Eindhoven and which variety of truffles to see reality melt?
I saw a very cheap option to fly to Agadir, Morocco for 4 days.
Should i do it?
Would be my first time travelling alone.
Just bought my tickets. Have about a week to learn everything about traveling alone and Morocco.
Do you speak any French?
Moroccan travel basics:
-Whatever the shopkeeper tells you it's worth, you can get it for 1/3 that figure -Don't expect a good meal at a restaurant that caters to tourists -Don't let hustlers give you a bad impression of Moroccan people. They're among the nicest in the world. You can get by in Agadir without speaking any French. Like the other guy said there's nothing historical in Agadir since the old city was flattened by an earthquake in the '60s. Good beaches and hiking opportunities nearby, though. Google Taghazout and Paradise Valley. Taroudant and Tafraoute would both be worth the long bus trip.
Amazing really appreciate the tips. Sadly i dont know french. How do i converse with them?
Like I said, most people you interact with in Agadir speak English. Agadir is overrun with Krauts, and locals choose to use English instead of German to pump money out of them.
It's essential to learn a few French phrases though, particularly for dealing with taxi drivers. And you'll need some survival phrases if you go outside the city.
Guys am I a travelet?
Can't be bothered to fill out the autism map. I'll go backpacking through the baltics for about 10 days in July and visit Portugal for a week at the end of August.
I'm planning on travelling outside of Europe once I'm finished with college next year (am 20 years old now, will be 21 by that time). Got a ton of money saved up for it already. I feel like it'd be a waste to settle for way-too-expensive plane tickets seeing that I can only travel in high season right now so I figured I might as well tick off places in Europe until I'm finished with college and I'll be able to travel in the off-season.
Pretty much everywhere in Europe. I haven't seen any national parks in the US and I want to hike the inca trail one day. I'd also like to visit Japan, New Zealand, and thailand
>>1410938 >I'm 18
You have a long time ahead of you to travel. If you keep searching for something you will find it.
you havent even been to uruguay? That's like just across the river from you.
also superior alfajores
All pricing being equal, is it worth it to fly take the train to my destination in Italy (from Scandinavia) rather than taking the plane?
Would stop in Hamburg and Munich along the way.
Do you enjoy train rides? Do you have enough time to spare that spending a couple of days looking out of a train window won't feel like a waste? If so, then sure.
But I assume that it would be cheaper to fly, to say nothing of a lot faster, especially if you want a sleeper.
I don't particulary enjoy train rides.
However I'm not entertaining the notion of spending the night in each city I go through.
Hamburg -> Munich -> Vienna -> Venice.
I'd say I'm a fairly normal guy apart for being very introvert and shy. It's pretty obvious I can't score with girls or get a relationship. I never talk about this, but everybody knows this.
I would like to go to Thailand. I've picked the country for various reasons, but of course it's known for prostitutes. Everybody knows this.
I plan to patronise them, but whether I do or not doesn't even matter. Most people will see a permavirgin going to Thailand and will draw conclusions no matter what I do.
Should I lie to my friends and colleagues about where I go?
Go to Germany or Amsterdam. It's more expensive, but if this is how you're gonna have your first, the least you can do is treat yourself. Also, your friends & colleagues would be far less likely to draw conclusions about those places.
i mean, let them think what they want to think
I live in Belgium. I've done this a few times here and in Germany and Spain.
I'm not going to Thailand specifically to fuck prostitutes. I plan to do exactly the same as when I go to Germany or Spain. I go to see sights and fuck a hooker when I have some downtime.
hi /trv/ I am a 35 y/o guy from Germany and I have come to the conclusion that having a steady job, a nice house and safety makes me miserable. Likely a part of this miserable feeling is also because I am single and childless with no friends. However, I am truly happy when I travel. I feel free, meet people easily, and my brain starts working differently; I actually become motivated to write, to make photographs, to hear stories about people who I meet. I would therefore love to be able travel for a long time, meaning 2+ years so that I can see the world and be happy. I am curious to see the life in Eastern Europe, Russia and perhaps also Central-America.
I have some savings, but I need to make money on the way as well. I am not a programmer, but I am good at writing, taking photos, playing guitar, singing and drinking coffee. I speak German fluently, English, some Spanish and also some Russian. I don't need a lot of money; I can live frugally and be happy.
I am wondering if there is anyone here who is doing long term travelling and working, and what they did to be able to do it.
If someone can give me some tips on where to get started, or give some resources, I would be quite thankful.
>>1410557 >If someone can give me some tips on where to get started
Knock up a pure Bavarian phenotype bitch. Have eight kids, and take back Germany from these filthy invaders. That will give you purpose.
>>1410557 >good at drinking coffee
Life is based on pro-creation.
Spend best part of your life working for the jew.
Freelance writing and maybe translation work seems to be the only laptop jobs you could do. Aside from that, local employment where you travel is an option.
New job will require lots of travel,
Whats the best rewards Credit card to rack up points?
>>1408482 >requires 40 nights a year for any meaningful benefit
No it doesn't. It requires as little as 4 nights. If you are getting status fr ok m nights with IHG you are using the program wrong. And Accelerate points don't count towards status, btw. But when you book rooms, the bonus points do, which range from 1-10k. And most business travelers in the USA, as this thread shows, travel within the USA, where IHG has the most properties, thus the most opportunities to gain points, that then can be used for leisure travel. And if you are looking at the 3 star level, one night stay averages 10-20k points for a free night, even less with points and cash. So getting points, and using those points for free lodging. IHG wins. The actual status benefits are mediocre, though. I will give you that.
The more you shill IHG the more retarded you sound. You're literally talking about paying $20-40 extra per night for a paltry 1-2k bonus points per night, or even more than that for an extra 5k on the stay no matter how many nights that is. That's a fucking terrible deal, and relying on the hotel MAYBE having a bonus points rate low enough to be worth paying for, around .5 cent per bonus point extra on the rate, is something that is not common and can't be counted on, and if you're doing this on business travel your accounting department is not going to be happy with you either.
If footprint within the US is what you care about, IHG is even worse because with the exception of podunk towns in the middle of nowhere they have no footprint advantage over Hilton, Hyatt, or Starriott.
>>1408098 >Intercontinentals are crappy compared other high end brands like Waldorf Astoria or Park Hyatt
I think there is way too much emphasis on luxury hotels. In my opinion, the best would be a program that gives me the best return, and in my opinion that would be IHG and World of Hyatt simply due to the free annual nights in exchange for a minimal annual fee. Then, I would rate simply by the amount of hotels in the portfolio, again IHG wins over World of Hyatt although I prefer Hyatt product and go out of my way to stay at their hotels especially if I'm not using points. Then, I would rate by ratio of points in exchange for a room: I give World of Hyatt the lead here, followed by Starwood and IHG. Lastly, cash + points options, I think they're all relatively excellent but I'll give the edge to Hyatt.
2. World of Hyatt
I largely agree with
Granted, this is provided you sign up for the Ambassador program, but it's a relatively small fee, and instant status. I also agree with whoever mentioned Indigo properties, yet still not enough of them.
>>1411354 >the best would be a program that gives me the best return, and in my opinion that would be IHG and World of Hyatt simply due to the free annual nights in exchange for a minimal annual fee
IHG's credit card got a major devaluation this year. It's no longer a free night anywhere, it's capped at 40k maximum/night properties. This basically excludes everywhere but out of the way holiday inns and a handful of upper tier properties. Agreed on the Hyatt card, and Starriott may actually be decent with the changes to the rewards program and upping the tier limit on their new card free nights to 35k points/night (currently at 25k) though this depends on how they recategorize their properties. Given their recent rate increases, and sweet spots for the credit card night may well be erased by 2020.
What are some cultural highlights in the UK.
I am especially interested in England since my Auntie lives in Scotland and I've been there before.
I'm talking about experiencing the history of the last 3k years.
It's one of my ancestral homelands. The place where they're from is very small and is probably boring. idc i wanna see it anyway
Acid to the face
You know the usual cultural stuff.
I said I don't want to spend much time in London
I think you're going to be in for a shock if you think only London is like this.
