Just booked my first solo trip, but now a deep melancholy took over me because I know I won’t be truly happy anywhere in the world, and no trip will change the fact I am lonely, undesirable and poor, or that I have been left and humiliated by the only person I ever loved a few weeks ago, or that I hate my job, my apartment and will have to return to this place when the journey is over. No matter how much I try to convince myself, I’m not doing a solo trip because I love my own company (I despise myself), but because I don’t have one single person in my life. No beautiful mountain or lake can save me.

Yeah but it's still cheaper which is the point, if you wanted you could do a late night bus and just sleep on it getting to LA by 7am on thursday if you wanted.

>Yeah, I definitely agree with you. I fly San Antonio/Austin to El Paso pretty frequently for work, but like I said, I drive to IAH/DFW when I go international.
Again you have that option to drop a car off for free, for me I'd have to tack on something like 20+ bucks per day. A bus after work burns no vacation days for me, saves me money, and doesn't cut as close to transfers. There isn't a downside to me using a bus vs a plane because I have no problems sleeping on a bus.

Fuggg. Amarillo's parking is more expensive than El Paso 's is (and El Paso is a city that's 4x larger). I know Beaumont's parking is free.

>>Denver->Santa fe
Yeah there a lot of "gatcha's" if you are not in a main city, if you live near one then you can generally just suck up the cost and do whatever. However, smaller in-between spots or sometimes airports that are going to connect to X larger airport regardless, a bus can often be cheaper. Especially if traveling with bags and not a "member" like on frontier or spirit where bags can add on an extra 35-45 dollars a pop easily. That 140 dollar flight? Oh you have bags that are bigger than personal items? yeah you need to check those...Oh basic economy, yup that will cost you should have done economy. Now that 140 dollar round trip flight is over 200 since it's probably going to be 35 there and back for your bags. Being at near 225, that 50-75 dollar bus now looks a lot more reasonable if you are trying to maintain a budget.

https://www.google.com/search?q=venezuela+black+market+currency+rate

> The government currently fixes sales of dollars at an official rate of 172,800 bolivars per dollar, well below the black market rate of around 3.8 million bolivars per dollar. Venezuela's bolivar currency has fallen 99.99 percent against the dollar on the black market since Maduro came to power in April 2013.Aug 2, 2018

So, sounds like fifty cents or eight bucks. Wait, "2018", never mind, looks like the current official rate is around 250,000 to 1, so you're still talking only five bucks at the official exchange rate, probably twenty-five cents at black market rates.

Went last November and was one of the best trips I've ever taken. Didn't cost anything as it was for work but I imagine if you show up in Ushuaia during the season you could get a last minute berth for under 5k.

So I've been planning a trip to the Balkans, I'll go solely by train and the people I'm traveling with are quite keen on Croatia, and definitely want some amount of beach time.

My problem with that is that everything that comes to my mind when I think Croatia is overly touristic beach towns and Mallorca tier cheap trashy partying, so I'm very sceptical about every city I considered adding to our itinerary. Does anyone have any advice which towns to avoid there?

I was thinking about Zagreb - one city with a beach not too far away - Sarajevo and hopefully a second city in Bosnia or maybe even Serbia, although I wouldn't like more than three stops since we have about 10 days only, maybe up to 14.
For the beach stop I considered Split, Zadar or Korcula, but I really can't imagine how either of them are beyond the old town.

I'd also appreciate advice on Bosnia and buying train tickets in the Balkans. Serbia is inaccessible af by train I've heard, so I'd probably try to catch a bus in Bosnia if I decide to go there.

>>
>>1719386
How did you like the cities themselves, aside from the beaches and how do they compare?
Looks like Zadar is far up on my list so far.

I thought the network in Serbia was way worse, but I don't have any options regarding that anyway so I'll take it how it is, if necessary I'll switch to buses. Great for the RealTraveler(tm) experience too kek

>>1719398
I've been thinking about Bulgaria but from Zagreb I'd spend over 24 hours just getting there and Sarajevo to Sofia seems to be more complicated to get a good route for.
I'll definitely keep it in mind though, maybe I'll only set Zagreb and Sarajevo in stone and then decide spontaneously while I'm there, it's probably easier to find routes there as well, assuming Balkan bus travel compares to "eastern block" bus travel.
>>
>>1719398
Oh also, have you been to the Bulgarian black sea? And do you have any places to recommend in Bulgaria? I have no real idea about the country so I don't know where to start with it.
>>
>>1719809
>Would you say a day or two would be enough for each?
Neither of these are worth spending an entire day in. Pocitelj is a small village, like an hour tops. Stolac is kinda cool and substantially bigger but still a small town. Haven't been to Jajce. IMO all of them are only worth seeing if they're along your route anyway. Not worth making huge detours to get there.

Also check the route network of flixbus for cheap and reliable bus transport:

>>1719818
Went to both Varna and Split last year, Varna was at least as touristy (but skewed towards Russians, Split was more Central Europeans) and less sights to see, but the beaches were nicer and overall it was a good deal cheaper. Sofia's a great city too, only spent a day there but wish I had time for a few more

went out in Manhattan, to a couple of ridiculous bars. Parties in an apartment first with some of my wall st friends.

> In the bar, $30 for three small bottles again. 20% tip which I declined to give. Don't tell me the bartender is struggling to earn a living, it took him less than 45 seconds to serve me and he doesn't deserve $400+ per hour in tips. Absolute bullshit.

If you mean you're going for New Year's Eve, every city will have some club parties. Major ones will have some kind of public show in the main square. It won't be snowing, unless you're near some mountains or very lucky. Naples is known for insane celebration by citizens, who will shoot guns and light huge fireworks in the middle of the road, making the place feel more like the Gaza strip than an European city.

Which of the lesser-travelled Caribbean Islands are your favorite? Looking for opportunities to hike, explore on land, maybe snorkeling (no diving). Love beautiful landscapes and don’t care about luxury too much.

I have been reading about places like Saba, Montserrat, Nevis, St. Kitts and some others but it’s hard to pick.

Realistically I have about 10-12 days and would like to start somewhere for 2-3 nights just to lay on a sandy beach with my gf and decompress. Then spend the next days island hopping. Ideally 2 nights minimum in per location. Is it worth trying to hit a few or are they all so similar that the increase travel is a waste of time?

Going in February. Cost thankfully is not an issue at this point, and it’s just two people.

Thanks in advance for any opinions.

I'm going to Europe in January for ten days with no plans other than:
1. Flying into Barcelona
2. Going to Scotland to stay with a friend for a few days for the final 3 days of the trip
3. Flying out of London

This. Plan carefully mate. Scotland to London is further than you think, it will easily eat half a day of travel. You should probably stick to 3 cities max e.g. Barcelona, London and Scotland (which city)?
>>
Let's be pessimistic here.

>flying into Barcelona
Day 1: Recovering from your jetlag.
Day 2-4: Sightseeing

I don't know, let's say you go to Madrid afterwards because plane tickets there should be a little cheaper than if you went down the coast or into southern France.

Day 5: wake up with a splitting headache because you needed to celebrate your last night in Barcelona. Take an 1pm bus to Madrid, and the rest of the day in transit to your hostel.

Day 6: sightsee in Madrid in the morning, afternoon flight to Edinburgh or Glasgow. God help you if your friend is anywhere else in Scotland.

Day 7 - 9: Hang out with your mate. Catch your night flight to London.

Day 10: Walk around London for a morning tops, then take your flight back home.

I'm a 20 year old Oz guy travelling on my own for the first time ever. I'm off to the UK in Feb and was wondering what's a good way to explore the English countryside and Scotland in about a week? I'm more interested in historical, natural and cultural stuff than clubbing or anything like that because to be honest I could just do that back home. But at the same time I don't want to be bored all alone on a trip and would prefer to explore in a group if I could. Would a hostel be good for me? What are things I could get up to in the area?

Okay, that's better then. I'd still say you should stick to one country. Train/bus is probably your best travel option into Scotland but will still take the good part of a day for that. If you are interested in Scotland, rent a car so you can easily get around all the sights.

Mostly interested in looking at museums and historic sites and having an overall comfy time. Any recommendations for stuff to do in or around this route?

If you're doing Scotland I'd say Pitlochry and the southern Highlands are pretty fun that time of year and not terribly hard to get to.
