Welcome!

/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.

>>
>>1527053
I was there for two months and I didn't get diarrhea once. I mostly ate cheap stuff. No street food, no tapwater. I brushed my teeth with tapwater and didn't notice any ill effects, but it probably wasn't the best idea; I just wanted to economise on bottled water.

I was taking a probiotic before each meal and 50mg zinc after. These have worthwhile benefits on their own, but no diarrhea in India at all was a better result than I expected.

A lot of expats in Japan seem to have no talent or real qualities… Guys like Tkyosam or Ryan Boundless

How can they afford living and staying in this country for years? Are English teachers considered gods there?

Does it give unlimited visa even if you are really low skilled and offer close to nothing?

Is there anything else a white guy can do in Japan besides teach English if he wanted to be there for a little while? Their population is in decline surely there is some skilled labor gap or other more niche professions they need least that they'd provide a temporary work visa.

I was already traveling the entire country and there was a girl that was down to fuck so I figured why not. I learned about "adelaidians" and they have one beach with a cave that was super fucking romantic at sunset and kissing the girl you really like as the sun goes down on that secluded spot was worth it.
But boy the city itself is laughable. If someone decided to bomb this shit city, not only would nothing of value be lost, but no one would find out about it because adelaidians never leave their city and basically no one ever goes there.

Hey /trv/,
It’s always been a dream of mine to do a Eurotrip. I’ve saved up over the past couple of years and got a passport, but my friends are discouraging me and my family’s outright opposed to me going because they say Europe’s not safe anymore (for obvious reasons). I’ve never been out of the Midwest much before, so I’d maybe settle for a trip to Las Vegas, New Orleans or somewhere in Mexico and use the money I’d save for something else but I’ve always wanted to have the experience of drinking wine in France, having pizza in Rome etc.

Is the safety issue in Europe exaggerated or would I be able to do a 3 week trip through the France, Germany and Italy without being robbed or pickpocketed?

Hey long term travelers. What do you guys do with your belongings and apartments etc when you go on an extended trip? I want to go away for at least 6 monthsas I have in the past but my mom says when I return this time I will not be able to stay at our house. So what do you guys do?

If you're parents don't want you using their home as a home base anymore then find another home base. Not very complicated.

The big thing is making sure your identity documents are somewhere safe. Birth certificate, immunization records, diplomas, etc. If you can't find someone you trust to leave them with, get a safe deposit box at a bank. They're only like $20/year most places. Anything else that you want to keep just put in a small storage locker or leave with a friend. When I was an seasonal /out/ bum the majority of my belongings fit into two duffel bags so it wasn't a big deal to leave stuff with a friend because it didn't take up much space.
As for where to live when you get back, just hop on craigslist and find a sublease or a room to rent. There are some airbnbs that do long term stays, or there are monthly rate motels but those get pricey. But always start with craigslist, there's almost always someone who needs to fill a room because their roommate moved out early.

I'm not a beach person, but from what I've heard, the best beaches in India are the ones that:

A) Aren't known by international tourists;
B) Are too remote for domestic tourists to bother trashing up

This. There is no fun to be had, no night clubs, nothing. So there are no tourists.
This is in the very north of Kerala on the border of Karnataka

To avoid confusion, the man stations in New Delhi are NDLS, Hazrat Nizamuddin and Anand Vihar. Only NDLS has an International Tourist Bureau (ITB). It's located on the first floor of the station, Paharganj-side. Wait-times can be excessive, as many tourists don't know which trains they're supposed to take.

I would strongly encourage anyone traveling by rail in India to check the IRCTC website several days or weeks in advance of their journey. Booking online saves a lot of hassle isn't as hard as some people make it sound. That's especially true if you're not traveling during a major festival and are planning to book an AC class.

While it wasn't possible in the past, you can book tickets with an international card directly on the IRCTC website or mobile app. However, you HAVE to book more than 48 hours in advance, otherwise it won't accept your mode of payment. If you have AmazonPay, you can book through Yatra.com, too, without the time restriction.

Sleeper is cheap and fairly comfortable, climate-wise, in the winter. Would definitely recommend on less congested routes in the cooler months. However, it'll be tougher to book on your own, as sleeper's a high-demand class.

If you're traveling solo and don't mind a little uncertainty, you can always book tickets on RAC (Reserved Against Cancellation). That means that you're guaranteed travel on the train but may not be allotted your own berth. Most AC classes have a ton of berths "reserved" for government officials, soldiers, etc, which aren't sold but are held until a couple days before departure. So if your RAC number isn't that high, you're almost guaranteed a seat. There are PNR estimators online that will calculate the odds of an RAC or WL'd ticket going through.

Anyway, using the ITB is an okay but not guaranteed option for last-minute travel. Bear in mind that tourist quotas can get exhausted during the high season (I've been declined several times). You also get charged extra for booking
>>
>>1527588

under the international tourist quota, unless I'm mistaken.

Having written all that, and having visited India 11 times (samefag from earlier), I almost never bother with the ITB anymore. It's a waste of time and I can usually find tickets on my own.

The IRCTC website takes some getting used to, but I would always try to book on my own before bothering with an ITB.

I've flown with Air India on their 16-hour, non-stop flights from New Delhi to Chicago. Their ground service is horrible, but the flight itself was completely fine. I wound up getting an empty row and sleeping most of the way.

There's like a dozen cards that offer it, nexus program, delta reward tiers and based on how often you fly you're still eligible to get it sometimes even if you have nothing. Some people have said this doesn't happen as much anymore since late 2018 but others have said the opposite so it's a wash.
>>1527692
You literally get TSA for free the same exact fucking ways it's been for years. I paid a small fee (which must be gigantic for you to die on a hill about) because I don't use said credit card companies, don't have nexus and don't fly Delta.

I get your logic if the security process has changed tenfold over the past decade; but it hasn't, so you're left just getting mad about nothing

never had any issues at immigration my whole life until I entered singapore. had to endure a 20 minute interview with the guy, he wanted to know my whole itinerary even for the countries after, what I'd do on each day in detail, see every booking confirmation, how much cash and funds I'm carrying, why I still have IDR even though I'm coming from Malaysia...
it was nerve wrecking because once the interview starts going on for so long you start thinking they found something wrong. ultimately managed to get through and my bus driver actually waited for me as well which was pretty based. fuck singapore immigration.
