Good afternoon /trv/, after helping people in their threads I’m hoping to get some feedback on my trip outline coming up relatively shortly due to a sudden break in schedule. I’m giving myself roughly 3 weeks for everything and already have my 8 day Eurail ticket booked when they had their winter sale.

I love medieval architecture and don’t drink/party so city nightlife isn’t something that will draw me to a city. I plan on doing a lot of walking and renting bikes when I can to cruise around the outer-parts of cities if possible. Cool museums are a plus, and in the past I've had coffee dates with tinder girls to get local advice on places that are truly worth seeing.
>Bern
>Lucerne
>Salzburg
>Nuremberg
>Mainz
>Ghent
>Utrecht

Feedback on the those places as a rough outline would be great and if you feel inclined any tips on them would be great. I plan on learning basic greetings/sayings for each country but I hope the places I chose I won’t be completely borked with just English.

Thanks so much for the feedback, Ghent is the place on my trip I'm most excited about so it's great that you enjoyed it too. Will make a note of avoiding that area, and I've read that renting bikes in the city is really popular so that should be a blast.

I guess to add onto my existing thread, after Utrecht I have to go back to Munich for a week for work. If my schedule is too ambitious for 3 weeks I could realistically cut down 1 of my 2 german stops and just have Munich be my second since I'll be there for so long, if that makes any sense. Nuremberg looks like the most compared to Mainz but I'm certainly open to any input.

I honestly don't know much about European history at all but that place looks insane albeit a little bit outside of the city. I'll keep it in mind though

Fly to London and spend two days there, seeing sights. Then head to Leeds in an attempt to lose my v-card. After two days there fly to Rome and see sights for 4 days. Then fly to Budapest and hang out for a week. If I've failed to lose v-card in this time then hire Hungarian hooker, then fly back

Has anyone been to Banff before? I have a week off in september and want to visit canada and have seen gorgeous pictures. Is it easy to navigate? The general consensus I've heard is to get a car. I'd appreciate any input about traveling around the area/places to stay/places to see/places to meet fellow young travelers etc from people that have been.

I recommend camping there to avoid the hotel fees. I'm from Texas too and some friends and I went up there a few years ago and it was fantastic.

Chinks rarely venture out of banff townsite and the big attractions. Even a shitshow like lake louuse goes from bejing level crowds to tolerable and chink free after a short walk.

Get a car and pack a tent, sleeping bag, and air mattress then drive up icefields camping on your way. Or go to BC. Whatever your choice is, you need a car. No exceptions to the car rule.

>>1621858
The road to Lake Louise is really narrow though so even a few busloads of tourists completely fucks up access to it.

It is generally more bearable when you get out of Banff proper though. Definaely recommend hiking to one of the CPR tea houses if you're able.

>SHTF-minded

You'd better forget that bullshit right now; the only reason that pleasure craft more complex than canoes exist is because of the shipping industry. If SHTF you might be able to ride things out for a bit, sure. But what happens when you need a haul-out and some anti-fouling paint? What happens when you're out of filters for your watermaker and it hasn't rained in two weeks? What happens when your blocks and winches start failing? What happens when the outboard for your dinghy grenades itself after a seal fails?

Recreational yachting is a by-blow of the multi-trillion dollar marine industry and serves no purpose in itself; it's about the least sustainable way of living imaginable.

I think you're a bit off in your estimations. While I wholeheartedly agree that the ocean is a very dangerous place, and one always has to be aware of the weather, all of these things can be reasonably managed without being trained like an astronaut. I hold my masters 1600 ton, but I don't think any of my inherent skill has really improved since I was 18 or 19. I've experience now where I think I can respond more efficiently to a situation, but nothing I still couldn't have done safely 14 years ago.

If you're into sailing OP you should read Dove by Robin Lee Graham. He did half a circumnavigation in a 24' sloop (before going to a larger boat to finish), and even though it was back in the 60s he did it on a shoestring budget. Here's his boat for reference.

And if you want to try it buy some $4000 catalina on craigslist thats ready to roll and sail for 6 months coastal. A lot of people just like saying the own a boat more than using it. That's okay but you should know where you stand. If you actually like it move into a better boat and go from there.

>>1620365
You could do an overland tour. They're still pretty expensive though (around $300 a day). Another option, if you have the time, is to take public transport or hitchhike to the town closest to the park you want to visit and arrange a safari from there. At some places you can arrange tours for $50 a day.

Cumming inside three Pattaya Beach Road whores.

Has anyone been? Can foreigners visit or is access restricted?

A few years ago you could go to Myitkyina but I've never heard of anyone going much further into Kachin state. I don't even know what the geography's like or how populated it is. It's basically a blank space on the map. I searched up Puta-O, a town there and found this article - https://www.liputan6.com/lifestyle/read/3051523/puta-o-myanmar-terpilih-jadi-atraksi-wisata-baru-terbaik-di-asean - which has a picture of some Karst hills, but I'm pretty sure it's Yangshuo in China.

Uh as dumb as it is to say, it "depends." Are you going to walk through sketchy areas by yourself late at night? It's pretty easy to avoid being mugged but there's always going to be shit out of your hands at the end of the day, can't be afraid to go out there. Maybe research each place you're going to before hand and see what normal, sane people are saying.

should be fine tho dude

Yeah I'll probably be fine. Can't let shadows stop me anyways. I was just thinking about pickpockets, ambushes during hikes, terrorists, and other crazy shit that only happens once in a blue moon. Media tends to hype it up though so I had my doubts.
