Whatever happened to the french/belgium anons travelling through africa on their motorcycles together? Is there still a thread active? are they even alive?
Thanks for the advice!
Can either of you also include any advice or thoughts regarding
>Getting hijacked and raped/killed >Bordercrossings or any other dilemmas
Glad our boy is alive and doing what he wants
Post screenshots of the conversation. Why is he not posting here anymore?
Lots of frogs in Africa, many working for military or NGO they almost certainly have an expat network through FB to do this, doubt they just showed up to the most dangerous border crossing besides Afghanistan/Swat
Can you tell him that /trv/ is freaking out? Send him a link to the thread, we would love to hear from him
Press "E" to euthanise this parasitic breed of traveller.
Its the same person (me). Yes I know god works in mysterious ways, whatever you say.
>>1410685 >There are evil people in all walks of life
yeah there you go, now you are getting the point
>Yea, because it's far worse. Scamming poor people out of what little money they have ≠ having a bad personality.
I agree with this, but then you jump to say budget travelers are living in denial? sure
>>1409792 >it looked kind of like it was an easy place to get into a fight or something because of all the drinking
To be fair, I did some drunk (or high probably) guy who wanted to fight me, he kept saying he'd kill me.
>be me >be sitting at a pop-up street bar outside Rambutri Village Inn (I think) >mid-evening, maybe 9pm >lounging on a deck chair, enjoying a singapore sling >wild real-traveller appears >he wanted a light or something, maybe cigarettes >I didn't have whatever he wanted >hate smoking >say something smart-arse like that he should quit >he takes it badly >He goes on and on, psyching himself up to fight me >challenging me to step into an alley with him where he'd kill me >I don't get up from my deck chair but get ready to act >everybody staring at this, nobody really sure whether they need to do anything >Thai mamma who runs the bar comes back from an errand >she starts giving him shit >suddenly a bunch of thai guys came out of nowhere and they stand around him >she starts shoving him off down the street, he doesn't resist >her guys keep an eye on him until he leaves
He wasn't Thai, only reason he probably left with his teeth intact, I'm sure he'd belong in this thread actually, he looked like a permanent backpacker sort of scumbag, the type that rips off backpackers and steals passports and macbooks to fence and fund their permanent holiday.
The best part is where he says he got enough money to go to Thailand and hang out for a while but not to actually go home.
It's not that much cheaper to go to Thailand and he'd have needed money for hostels etc anyway. Which aren't much cheaper than Japan anyway.
There's a lot of bs in this story.
Are you ESL? Not trying to be mean, but it would explain your poor english language reading comprehension.
Is Algiers safe and fun to visit
Yes it is both those things.
I'll be visiting Milan for a few days, is there anything interesting to go and see?
"Oh you want to put that on my wrist. Sure; just understand I'm not paying anything for it."
50 knots later.
"Oh, you're upset that I'm not giving you 5 euro. Take it back - I hope you have a knife to cut it off. If not, I do."
Niggers at the cathedral will try to rob you. Dont let them near you; deny every encounter.
These are african gangs and italian police doesnt care for them since they usually have to let them go because they dont have italian passport.
take the bus to lugano for the day
>>1410458 >they have to let them go
why don't they kick them instead?
Cant deport them if you cant prove where they are from!
Unless you meant police brutality. You'd have a chimpout before backup could be called
I want to visit France.
I've been to Paris a few times and to the cote d azur as well, but I didn't like it that much.
The touristy stuff was nice, but Paris especially was very dirty in the non-touristy places.
So I wanna visit some country side, non-city places in France.
I heard Normandie and Bretagne are alright, has anyone of you been there?
What other places in France can you recommend?
I'm planning to do a day trip or maybe a few days.
I live in Switzerland so it's all pretty close to me.
What didn't you like in Côte d'azur?
Are there any parts of France not worth going to? It seems like every region has something worth seeing
I dunno m8, I'm not too fond of Normandy. I prefer Bretagne by far. Also the Massif Central is a really cool place. You get very rural and green places, great for hiking. It also has some more touristy spots like Ardèche.
Beauce. Just endless flat fields.
Lyon is an incredibly underrated gem of a city
I am going to Santiago de Chile from July 14th to 21st. I am wondering if this is too much for the city. Are there any sidetrips you guys reccomend? do they tend to be expensive? Thanks in advance.
stfu dumbass that's far from scl
I went on one of the Andes tours on Viator (Think it was Cajon del Maipo). It's about $100, but worth it.
there's a tour to see acancagua (the highest peak in s. america) which is pretty cool. Google it, it's a day tour.
Is the road dangerous on winter?
/trv/, do you think I could get away with traveling with nothing but a backpack for 2 months in Sweden? June-July
I'm trying to pack as light as possible because I'll be moving around a lot.
Just take it if it's light and thin. Specially if you need it for working. Two months is a considerable amount of time.
It's full of Muzzers.
Backpack recommendations for what OP is describing? Milsurp stuff looks plenty rugged and could work as a carryon
If you have a wallet inside that backpack, sure. As a Swede I'm not really sure where you'd wash your clothing other than a dry cleaner but if you're actually doing this you better figure that out.
carry on spec like
(if flying) or milsurp
would work good. Watch out for faux military stuff that's cheap on amazon or whatnot though, it's worse than buying used and worn milsurp. Something like a Goruck GR2 would be ideal but they're hecking expensive. t. no experience of backpacking in the way described but some backpack autism and hiking experience
I travel with a laptop. Have a TimBuk2 bag with a laptop compartment I use for carry-on, holds about 2 week's worth of shit so just keep doing laundry and all good
Those anybody had bad experiences with the custom agents at airports that would like to share?
Like for example I was talking with a black French and told me at the airport in Athens he got pulled out of the queue and got question just because the of his skin. He lost his flight and feared getting dumped in a cell.
Berlin has Adolph Hitler airport. Saudi Arabia has Osama bin Laden airport. Same thing.
It's part of their security. If you show any kind of inclination you may be into local politics they don't want to let you in for good reasons. US does the same thing, they ask you 'What do you think of the President" when crossing the border if they suspect you're a professional protester or retard agitator. The correct answer is always "I'm not interested in politics I'm here as a tourist".
>>1411246 >they ask you 'What do you think of the President"
I have been to the US at least 10 times as a tourist and never been asked that.
Because they have no reason to suspect you're there as a protester, but if you went to DC before that silly Women's march or gave them reason to suspect you're into local politics or some kind of environmentalist or w/e they ask you. This is standard US customs procedure since as long as I can remember (late 90s). Countless articles in Canada about people turned away at the border because they're liberal retards who made disparaging comments about Trump when asked.
I was asked by Police in Tokyo's airport for ID. They were racist because I was white, and they profiled me. How dare they!
>Fly into Jakarta - stay for one day
>Train to Yogyakarta - stay ~3 days
I have a few more days spare, where else in Java is worth going?
literally just done this, would definitely advise doing Mt Bromo and Ijen Crater. Both are easily done through organised tours but I would recommend doing Bromo by yourself to avoid the crowds.
Surely you don’t fly on poverty tier ‘budget’ airlines do you?
You just have to o pay attn
There's a secret code among flight attendants.
Just tell them 'No, thank you' and they'll leave you alone for the rest of your 30-60min flight.
Works every time.
why would I pay money to sit in a nicer chair for 2 hours, when I could be spending it at the actual place I am looking forward to going to?
Check out Wingo. It's way cheaper than Avianca.
Nonlocking armrests are terrifying during heavy turbulence
