/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

/trv/, how do you deal with phone verifications if you're on long term travel?

In India it never took me less than half an hour to withdraw money from an ATM, because my bank has a coronary every single time, freezing my card and sending a text asking if I were withdrawing money, and the vending machine running my account needed that long to respond to my reply text consisting of the word "Yes".

Meanwhile, my SIM card has no reception whatsoever in Taiwan, so I would be unable to receive or reply to a warning text, which would leave my card frozen. Fortunately, my bank remains unaware of Taiwan's existence. That doesn't mean I don't sweat bullets when I have to withdraw money.

Is there such a thing as an international SIM card with reception everywhere?
Ask the bank to stop this retarded verification or find a normal bank.
Can you use an app instead and get a data sim wherever you go?

If you eat at hawker centres exclusively, yeah. Otherwise, proper restaurant prices will tend higher. And alcohol, well, that's particularly pricey.
Transport is on par, imo. London gets points for servicing a much greater area, which comes with greater difficulties.
As for cleanliness, well, that's unfair, isn't it? No one is going to win fighting Singapore for cleanliness.

I'm bored and I figured /trv/ might have some interesting questions for me, so fire away. First the basics.

>Who the hell are you and why should I care?

I am a cross trained agent for Piedmont Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines.

>What is a cross trained agent?

Ground based airline employees are generally referred to as agents. For example, someone who works the gate would be a gate agent, someone who works on the ramp would be a ramp agent (AKA fleet service agent, and sometimes shortened to "ramper"), plus ticket counter agents, baggage service agents, bag room agents, operations agents, etc. etc.

At regional airports, staffing restrictions mean that there are not enough personnel to have individual agents for individual tasks, which is where cross trained agents like myself come into play.

We are trained to fill multiple positions, and in many cases all positions. I fall into the latter category. I am fully trained and routinely work at the ticket counters, gates, ramp, operations, baggage service office, aircraft cleaning, security searches, emergency response, and more. I come from a rather large regional airport, therefore unlike most other cross trained agents I am fully trained for both regional (American Eagle) and Mainline flights.

Ever hear of stories of stewardesses fucking customers on a plane? One of my top fantasies and on overnight flights always wanted to ask the qts if they'd be down for some bathroom shagging.
Thanks for doing this, great thread.

On a day with an entirely blown out flight schedule (like O'Hare in a polar vortex), does the American computer system permit more complex bookings/solutions?

I've had very weird cases where agents suddenly gain large amounts of flexibility - one time I was routed back to New York via Eau Claire to Charlotte, and another where one purchased me a first class United ticket on the last flight out from Chicago.

I have okay status on American (Gold/Platinum), but I'm not a Concierge Key member and I don't have a huge rack. Is there something unique about adverse weather conditions?
Is there any way to find out if I'm on a no fly list or do I just have to book a flight, show up, and find out.

>That is fringing on the edge of what I'd consider sensitive security information,
This is why I was reluctant to answer as well, but the answer is a resounding yes they can find it. It mostly depends on your screener, how busy it is, how lucky you are though. The baggies are a dead giveaway though, even an empty time bag is obvious. Personally have picked out a miniature swiss army knife in a bag of change. Basically, they teach you if there's *anything* you can't identify, search it.

You were either lucky or they didn't care or they were to busy to search not a threat. Have let people through with personal amounts of coke, mdma, weed once, and some other stuff because it's not worth the hassle and paperwork. Usually it's obvious they didn't know they had that almost empty baggie or pill stashed away anyways.

>t. ex tsa
will answer any questions I can provided they don't expose any security vulnerabilities like the fact you can just walk through any metal detector with a knife if you do it right.
Yes, I've heard of at least one case where a stewardess got arrested for prostitution after she got caught having sex with a first class passenger.

So policy on rebooking is dependent on the cause of the reroute. Generally it can be split into two categories.

First we have delays/cancellations that are considered within our realm of control. Think of things like crew delays, maintenance delays, ground handling delays, situations where either we as airline employees or our equipment has failed. For these situations, we gain a great deal more flexibility in our rebooking options. We can change practically your entire reservation to get you where you need to go as quickly as possible. I can even put you on codeshare flights with other airlines if I have to. If it makes you miss the last/only connection for the day, this is when we give you hotel and food vouchers so you can make the next days flight.

Then we have the other type, delays that aren't our fault. Weather, air traffic control, ground stops, security lockdowns, acts of war, acts of God, meteor strikes, that sort of thing. Our options become much more limited. We can keep kicking you along to the next flights out, but your routing has to stay the same. I can't reroute you or issue any vouchers. You're just gonna have to wait it out.

Also, for the record, as one of our AAdvantage members with at least Gold membership, you actually get nicer hotels than normal plebs if we issue you a hotel voucher. At the very least we set you up with a nicer room. As for first class, a supervisor might be able to upgrade you for customer service reasons but I would be too afraid to be chewed out to do it.

Nope, no way to tell that I'm aware of, not even for our own corporate no fly list. The only way you know you've dun goofed is when you get an SSSS boarding pass.

Ive never been on a real vacation and i have lately been thinking about going on a bikepacking trip.
Anyone here have any experience?
Pretty sure you'll get more results on /n/, and you might want to stop in a newbie camping thead in /out/ for advice there as well.

Are you on the west coast by any chance? Planning a tour this summer.

/n/ isn't all that much into bikepacking. The board is more about cycling as a sport.

I did pic related last summer. Been doing bike trips in Europe for years. No experience on other continents though but feel free to ask questions.
I've only been in Colorado in the winter, but with the elevation, does it ever get warm there? Since you're in a western state though, at least there's plenty of campsites.

I don't have any advice, since I'm still in the planning stage of my first trip, but you might want to check out a movie. "A survey of open space." It follows a bikepacking trip from Texas to the tip of Washington state and also a bit of Alaska.

Long term I've always dreamed of cycling from here in Oregon all the way to the east coast, but I wouldn't want to do it alone, and finding people who are willing to commit a whole summer to that kind of adventure isn't easy.

Leaving next week to bike from Boston to Philly. Can you recommend me regional dishes and or places to eat that won't break the bank?

Major cities that I'm spending time in are: Boston, Providence, Hartford, New Haven, New York, and Philadelphia

I'll post some of the things I intend to go see below if you feel like suggesting something or have similar interests. I like architecture, bridges, street art, and city life/culture. There is a large gap between Providence and New Haven where it seems like there is very little to see for 3 days of biking.

In the Amish section by Amish bakery there is I think an Amish person that sells barbecue pork sandwiches with a slice of cheese add a little hot sauce and it may be my most favorite sandwich of all time
Also cheese steak with cheese wiz and onions it’s called wiz wit that’s how u have to have it I liked Sonny’s in old city but there are a ton others also Steven star in philly he has a bunch of restaurants
Did u go yet
Omg, thank you so much. >>1543560
>Did u go yet
Leaving later this week, but I'm taking my time and spending at least a day in most major cities so I won't make it to Philly until the beginning on March.

I am going to to my absolute best to find that amish person, that's awesome. I'll be there for two and a half days so I hope to try almost everything on your list.

One thing I'm always amazed at is how cheap the food is in the states compared to Canada. That sandwich is the same as if you would buy a footlong from subway accounting for currency, so not really *very* pricy.
Like other people said, you have to get the pizza in New Haven, Frank Pepe's a classic. Also Federal Hill in Providence is a must for Italian food. If you have access to a kitchen, get the fresh cheese ravioli at Venda Ravioli. Some of the best in America and even compared to Italy for that matter.
this is very close but the best sandwich in boston is actually the combo from sam lagrassa's.
In Connecticut - skip Hartford (it's cute, but really not much there) and hug the coast instead - New London, Niantic (boardwalk), Old Sayville (arts center), Guilfford (check out Bishop's Orchard)

I'm heading to an Europe trip.

Three destinations: Lisbon, Barcelona and Dublin. With my girlfriend. We are from Brazil. Time is not a problem, since we have one week for each city.

I'm going to experience St. Patrick's Day's parade and its street parties. And we will think about blowing money to watch Champions League's game Barcelona x Lyon at Camp Nou at Lyon's seats.

I need /trv's/ suggestions of more things to do in this places. Anything specific that you know can add value to our trip. Preferely non-touristy tips, like nice places, foods, nightlife, cultural stuff, curious tours, and any other hidden gems, because i'm already watching "to do lists" on lots of youtube's travel channels. So the principal touristy walks we already know, like Sagrada Senpaiília and Guinness Brewery tour.

Already prepared for cold temperatures, and took notes about cheap public transports. Any other thing to worry about?
Some ideas for Barcelona

Things to do
>Park Güell. Seriously, this is a must
>Walking down Passeig de Gràcia and gazing at all the awesome architecture, both modernist and contemporary
>Watching the sun set over the city in the old civil war bunkers del Carmel. Probably the best view over Barcelona. This would be a must for me aswell.
>Browsing the vintage and record shops in carrer Tallers
>Just strolling around aimlessy around the old quarter (El Raval and El Born). Check out the other cathedral of the city and the Santa Maria del Mar church.
>Sit on a terrace, drink a beer and people watch in one of the multiple plazas in the Gràcia district
>Go to the MNAC museum, already worth it only for the building
>Buy some weed from one of our legal "coffee shops"
>Eat out at La Lluna, delicious, traditional food with a modern spin. It's cheap as shit and literally one street from Plaça Catalunya.
>Tapas in any of the multiple tabernas in El Born
>Check out La Boqueria market, labeled as one of the best in Europe. You can find anything edible there. There's good places to eat inside aswell, like bar Pinotxo and El Quim. Or just pick something that catches your eye from any of the multiple stalls. Great place for photos aswell.

double wew, the old quarter is literally one big tourist trap
>>Buy some weed from one of our legal "coffee shops"
illegal if you're not a resident, plus you need to know someone who is a member to get in in the first place. The ones who let everyone in are shady af and may get raided
>>Eat out at La Lluna, delicious, traditional food with a modern spin. It's cheap as shit and literally one street from Plaça Catalunya.
anything that's one street from Plaça Catalunya is bound to be a tourist trap. For traditional food in a high-class restaurant I'd recommend La Camarga or L'Oliana. jfc there's more to Barcelona than the shitty old town you doublenigger
>>Check out La Boqueria market
ffs OP was asking for NON-TOURISTY stuff, this is like the most touristy thing ever
>>Go INSIDE of the Sagrada Familia. Prebook your ticket online unless you want to stand in a queue for hours under the Spanish sun
touristy as fucking FUCK but I must admit it's kinda worth it.
Here's some actual non-touristy stuff and hidden gems:
>instead of walking through the shitty old quarter, take a walk through the Eixample (the grid part of the city), and appreciate the industrial-age utilitarian modernist architecture there, just branch off from Passeig de Gràcia or from Sagrada Familia area
>for cultural stuff, maybe go see a concert at Palau de La Musica, the unique interior alone makes it worth it
>if it's warm and you have a day to spare, take a day trip to Sitges, about 45 minutes by train, beautiful little seaside town with nice beaches, then eat a paella by the seaside (check google to avoid tourist traps, but the places close to the church are usually good)
>touristy as fuck also but Montserrat is rather worth it, it's very frequented by locals as well so there's that
>if you want some relax, go take a walk on Carretera de les Aigües, a trail that's halfway up the hills (take FGC trains S1 or S2 to Peu del Funicular, then take the funicular to the middle station, important that you press the button for it to stop). It borders the collserola hills and it's perfectly level (it follows a former water distribution system), you get amazing views of the city while walking comfily through a bit of nature, this is one of the best "hidden gems" in the city (because there are just not that many hidden gems tbqh)

Is this worth visiting in the beginning of March this year. There's supposed to be a lot of rain this spring, especially in the Western parts. I don't mind that much. But the landscapes won't be green either and more dull. Anyone who has been, would you recommend postponing to early summer or just say "fuck it" and go anyway. I have around 10 days. More or less. I am travelling solo by car.

I've had a thread saved with suggestions but can't find it anymore. I was planning on doing Dingle, Kerry, Galway and up to Slieve.

I've read somewhere that it's 8h from Dingle to Galway with a stop at the cliffs of Moher. Google Maps says way less for that. So you're probably right.

If there's hikes, I am up for that in Dingle and Kerry. Else I would probably enjoy just driving from town to town and enjoy the scenery. 1-2 days seems OK then.

I am going to the United States for a couple of months, and have gotten a B1/B2 visa. It says that it is valid for 10 years, with multiple entries.

As far as I understand it, my visa allows me to stay for a maximum of 6 months.

But, after I leave, can I then wait a while, and then re-enter for another 6 months? Not that I plan to, but with a visa that's valid for 10 years, that's 5 fucking years (if I wait 6 months in between each trip).

Seems a bit much, I dunno. Seems like I'm missing something.
Most likely it is up to the immigration officer's decision. If he feels you are trying to be in the US too much repeatedly he will deny you entry.
Yes, you can *try to* enter as many times as you want within the 10 years your visa is valid.
It's totally okay to enter many times if you stay for a short time on every trip (for example, if you're a businessman who travels to the US for work often).
If you stay for the whole 6 months, it's another story. It's pretty hard to invent a reason to stay 6 months in the US which is not illegal work so prepare to be questioned hard when you try to enter next time.

Eventually I straight up told him I’m not really interested in enlisting and I could see the seething over a lost bonus in his eyes.

Ex Air Force. 2003-2007. From Texas straight to Omaha and stuck there for my entire enlistment because (((intelligence))). Only ever travelled to Baghdad to stack people into naked pyramids and fingerprint dead bomb makers' disembodied hands. On the plus side, got out with a TS and a contractor job lined up before I left Iraq.

Went back to Iraq and to Afghan twice as a baby killing civilian contractor and basically cruised around in a Hilux with a cow pie sized puck of hashish, unlimited opium and a $200 AK from the bazaar setting up checkpoints for ANP and Army pukes. Fingerprinting mortar rounds and the dead hands that launched them. Made enough from there to actually travel all of Western Europe and enough IT experience to come home and bag a nice job.

The clearance from the USAF (everyone gets at least a Secret) is the gateway to the land of milk and honey. Moreso than any college degree, it will make you ultra employable, especially if you're willing to travel to third world hellholes but with the consolation that you'll live out a real life mad Max scenario with very little in the way of rules or consequences compared to western life. All in all, do recommend. The nerds in here can Ree all they want, I can't hear them over the sound of my live-in Thai ladyboy nurse-maid-masseuses polishing my krugerrands.
