My phone company, Virgin Mobile USA, doesn't allow me to unlock my phone nor does it allow international data
therefore I am wondering what phone company to switch to that is still inexpensive (I pay $35 a month for 5GB of data) while allowing me to buy Unlocked phones
Has anyone here ever travelled to "edgy" Middle Eastern countries such as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, ...
I've been in Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Afghanistan while in the Navy. Terrible places. Bahrain is okay, but it's too fucking hot.
True, after travelling through the states I've come to the conclusion that their culture is the worst in the fucking world.
There is in the suburbs. There are "gangs" (militias) who take pot shots at each other daily and bombings happen. Mainly Shia VS Sunni gangs.
There are also dangerous border regions where ISIS was kidnapping people and hurling bombs very recently. You will also likely witness a gunfight in a nightclub as that's how all Lebanese men resolve disputes at places like Sky Bar, handguns come out and one might go off. True it's nothing like Iraq/Yemen/Syria but still, need to keep your wits about you and avoid those suburbs.

I just renewed my passport. It was my sons third birthday, which meant it was my 5th wedding anniversary, and we got married in China, so I realized my passport was expired. Good thing too because we already had christmas flights to China bought.
Went with the 10 year renewal. Good times. Here’s my original passport photo. I had them print me off extras
u look like an extra from Trailer Park Boys
Is there anyone who have been to prince edward island?
Is it worth traveling there?
It’s quiet, beautiful, picturesque, but I don’t think it’s worth traveling any great distance to see it, unless you’re a big Anne of Green Gables fan.
The itty-bitty Atlantic Provinces are the most boring part of the country (and that's saying something), PEI included.
hey /trv/ I'm visiting my family in florida soon (The Villages specifically). Thinking of visiiting Miami or the Keys while I'm there. Anybody have any recommendations of what to do while in florida as a young person with not that much money?
Visiting South Beach is cheap, great for people watching.
Getting to Key West is a pain-in-the-ass. It's a three-hour drive from the mainland to get there, and it's just one of many very similar tourist traps within the state.
Here's a radical idea: why not spend time with your family instead?
i'm going to cuba in a couple weeks. would love to hear your experiences.
must dos. should not dos. mistakes. etc
>should not dos maybe you should've taken into account that Cuba just got DP'd by 2 hurricanes, one of them being the biggest one recorded in the Atlantic, and that the (already absolutely shitty) infrastructure just became shittier but that's just me guessing, and I'd actually like to hear the contrary because I want to go to Cuba before the summer but afaik there's no point going now because of the aforementioned :/
Cuba has always been able to handle natural disasters very well. Cuba has an astonishing low number of casualties and damage after such events.
Most of the damage has been fixed by now, I went 3 days after Irma decimated the northern islands and some part of the mainland and I haven't seen much destruction in Havana or anywhere else. I didn't go to Varadero but if you're not going there it should be fine. A few shortages of electricity in the first 3 days, a shortages of eggs because chickens got flooded etc..
You'll both be fine. Do prior research where you're going so there won't be any surprises. If you absolutely must be in a hotel or something, try the southern part of the island, it's undamaged. Trinidad might be a good place to start.
I loved Cuba! the people are amazing, really friendly, even the cops! the island is beautiful definetly go hiking. this is the time of year for some good bird watching! so might want to do that. I went in summer so there wasn't anything really there. get some ice cream at the state run ice cream shop. Trust me its the best you'll ever have. only rule DON'T DISRESPECT FIDEL CASTRO or che. tehy don't like it. I myself am a castro supporter so I didn't have to worry. also bring sunscreen i got fucked by the sun on the beach. if it wasn't for the cuban healthcare system I probably would of had like legit burns.
1. Everyone is trying to sell you something
2. Do not buy cigars off the street, they will be awful
3. Food is surprisingly good, but not as many bold/exoctic flavors as other Carribean nations.
4. Bring sunscreen
5. Don't ever rent a car that you plan to drive yourself. Always take a taxi/have a Cuban drive you around.
6. No wifi, but download maps/places you want to see before you go.
I went last month and had a good time.
Is it safe to travel to Cairo and Alexandria , Egypt ? And which precautions should i take ? (White european male)
A friend of mine went there recently. She's half Egyptian but the other half is Korean so she just looks Asian. Think she was only travelling with another female friend and in the photos she posted they weren't wearing hijabs which makes you think that it's safe enough. On the other hand, she's also fluent in Arabic and knows the country pretty well so she has advantages you won't. Resounding 'idk' on my part OP.
I'm going in January...everything I've read and people I've talked to have said that Cairo + Alexandria are as safe as any big city.
-When are you going? -What hostels have you looked into staying at so far?
It's funny how all of those so-called 'cradles of civilization' (China, Egypt, India-Pakistan, Iraq) turned into shitholes that don't appreciate their own glorious culture
>>1337236 >everything I've read and people I've talked to have said that Cairo + Alexandria are as safe as any big city. >as any big city >as any big city >as any big city
Are you serious lol? I'm not saying Egypt is too dangerous to visit if you really wanna go (it's an underwhelming shit hole), but have you read a newspaper from the last 10 years or watched the news recently? No city in Egypt is "as safe" as any western big city, that's retard tier naive.
There's a presidential election in March 2018 you should prob wait until it is over due to no doubt political tensions galore. Egypt is ""safe"" in that you're unlikely to get mugged or kidnapped in either of those cities but tourist busses have been shot up as recently as a few months ago with dozens dead. Avoid moving around in large tourist groups and just get some local tout/guide in order to show you around the two cities so you avoid merchant scams. You will absolutely want some kind of local with you because every couple of minutes some scam going on with cab drivers or guy's magically appearing when you take a pic to claim it's a 'no picture area' and you owe then money.
any of you guys have experience sailing from florida to south america or the Caribbean? Not planning a trip anytime soon but would be curious to try hitching a ride on a sail boat to some popular destinations if theres a place people like to go from florida.
People always need crew
I'm going on a class trip to Iceland in September. What kind of clothes should I pack, how much should I pack, and what sort of accessories might be useful?
I sweat a lot so I'm looking for some sort of super absorptive cloth, I also have a wool Buff to help. Any ideas?
Are boots worth bringing? I have a pair but they're more for walking through snow than on ice.
What are some must packs, essentially, if I'm planning to go carry-on only for about 2 weeks?
Use this site for real ice treads:
You want Green Diamond sole
is a good option or Vibrant Arctic Grip
All other treads are literal junk in the snow, might as well wear Doc Martens or something.
Also you want Wright Socks, they're designed for boots to keep your feet from blisters if going on long treks
Also, because it is Iceland, you need to pack your best clothing if you expect to go to any bars at night. Jeans are typically not allowed and every Iceland guy is dressed like he's going to a wedding.
I need boots that I can wear back home because I'll be broke after this trip, and they have to come in at least a wide. I'm a 7.5EEEE so an 8EE is the smallest I can go without deforming my foot.
If it helps, our professor said he got the idea from Game of Thrones filming sites. I've never seen an episode but I assume he means we won't be spending much time in the city, if we even visit Reykjavik at all. None of us will be packing any nice clothes because we aren't there for the night life, we're there for landmarks.
>Also you want Wright Socks
Darn Tough bootsocks won't do?
Then just buy those snow studded rubber strap on oversoles and wear any shoe then.
Did any of you take a train on the Trans-Siberian railway before?
I'm planning on travelling from Moscow to Vladivostok however I'm not sure where I should go from there. I want to see:
>Korea (South for sure, undecided on North)
Anyone done something similar? What order should I go about visiting the countries?
I was considering taking a ferry from Vladivostok to Northern Japan and travelling downwards from there, then visiting Korea and China.
Any advice with regards to how long I should spend in each country to get a good feel for the culture? Is it worth heading to SEA since I'm so close? For reference, I reside in Ireland and have an Irish and Moldovan passport.
I have an indefinite amount of time to spend, however this would be my first "real" solo journey and my budget is limited to around 5000eur, maximum 8000.
>am I thinking too much and should I just go in blind
You can only stay in hotels when you get a visa? I have a friend in Moscow, can't I get a invite from her?
No you dont have to only stay in a hotel. I stay in AirBnBs usually or with friends.
Its a more difficult process to get an invitation from a person. Just pay 5 dollars for an invite, its cheap and much easier
Thanks for the response man, where do you go to pay for an invite?
Hotelspro.c o m
Just enter all your destinations and a fancy hotel in each city, doesnt mean you have to stay there or even go to those towns, its just an itinerary
Henry Rollins did this, didn't recommend it.
