my lazy ass overstayed Schnegen visa for 20 days. Now I have a flight out of Paris, how likely am I to have problems in the airport? As in, detained, missing my flight, having to pay a fine, etc.

I don't care too much about travelling back to Schengen in the near future.

That's every episode. Seiously though why do brits bring up their hatred for americans in every thread, did they holocaust them or something?
America wasn't always an independent nation. The original plan was for it to be just an expansion of Britain, but then the wypipo who settled in were like "fuck this shit, we wanna be our own country, get fucked brits." Brits are just salty that they don't get to own the massive piece of land that is America.

Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:

It's not only mostly a shipping route (not a lot of people go all the way to Siberia to go to Japan, and not a lot of Japanese people go to Eastern Siberia), but there's historically been a lot of tension between the two powers and the Russians don't go back on a grudge.

No Russian or Japanese person wanted to start a shipping route when the Russo-Japanese War was in recent memory, and then Japan was occupied by the Soviet Union's worst enemy.
And by the time the Iron Curtain fell, the world's shipping and tourism routes were all avoiding Eastern Siberia.
I guess the territory dispute has gotten a bit more tense lately, but it's odd to me that the ferry stuck around until 2018 as I can't imagine any demand for it. Subsidies, perhaps? Japan has all kinds of improbable and unprofitable transportation infrastructure.
There's a ferry from Tottori to Vladivostok but like, lol, why would you do that. 1.5 days at sea. Wakkanai and Rebun-Rishiri at least make for an interesting journey.
I'd guess that it was a diplomatic formality to keep the ferry active until it had been conclusively proven that there wasn't a need for it.

That, and the occasional business executive, researcher, laborer or diplomat who actually needs to go there for their job.
I'm living in SK and have thought about going to Vladivostok for a short trip but a visa is too much of a pain in the ass to get. Russia would be smart to have visa-free travel there for first worlders.
Met a swiss guy 2 days ago who did it. Took trans siberian to vladivostok and then a ferry over to japan, didn't ask specifics on which ports, but his goal was to avoid flying.

I will be heading to Krakow for the weekend next month with some friends. Ages from 20 to 45. It will be a stag weekend but we are quite civilised and it will be activities during day and drinking in evening.

As it will be all men we will probably end up in a strip bar at least once. All the reviews I have seen online say that they are criminal, drugging customers, ripping off credit cards etc.

Any recommendations on bars, cafe’s and strip clubs in the old town would be appreciated.
Used to liv there
Pubs: Pod Baranami, Alchemia. Theres a lot restaurants in the old city. Visit jewish district Kazimierz and Plac Nowy (Alchemia). Take train to Wieliczka salt mine, visit Wawel. Avoid Nowa Chuta
Thanks Anon. Much appreciated

I'm a Dutch native and honestly don't see any reason why anyone would visit my country. There are some interesting landmarks and shit, sure, but unless you want the lackluster DUDE WEED and hookers experience, why would you ever go here? I'm a veteran couchsurfer but nobody ever asks to stay with me. Is there anything else I can "sell" my country on?

Respect you for writing this.
In defence of the Efteling the park is just also great just to walk around in. And if you go in the down season things are not that bad.
I actually have some questions:
In some previous thread some people said Delft is the most authentical Dutch city. I had some plannings about staying there for 3, 4 days and use it as a base for day trips to The Hague and Rotterdam. Is it a good idea? I really would like to go to Escher/Rembrnadt Museums and see a Theo Jansen exposition.
- I also would like to go to Maastricht and do the same with Liège and Aachen, but I'm afraid that the transportation to those cities is not as good.
- Do you recommend me Baarle?
- Do you have also FKK clubs?

I've been to Russia previously but only to Moscow and St Petersburg because of time. I am going back in July after Ukraine and surrounding areas.

I would like your opinion on where I am deciding to go. Either I will go over to the far East to the Jewish AO and Kamchatka, that sort of area, or to the Caucasus to Dagestan and chechnya.

I am quite interested in recovering conflict zones and Islamic areas especially, but is there much at all to do/see around those parts? I have heard the east is very beautiful.

Also can I cross into Crimea from Ukraine or do I have to fly from Russia?
Fly from Russia. I'm pretty sure you cannot enter from Ukrainian territory. Also, I would recommend going to Ukraine first, and then Russia, as sometimes Ukrainian border police and security gets uppity with people coming directly from Russia, although if you're American or something they probably won't care as much.
You can also take a bus across the bridge from Russia and next year there will be trains across the bridge too. The border between Crimea and Ukraine is closed to foreigners.
How much are the bus fares?

Hey guys, I will be traveling to Colombia in 2 days and I’m worried about these fuckers. I have no vaccination of yellow fever and I’m going to Leticia. Will I die?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
They give out free vaccinations at El Dorado, takes about 1 week to become effective. Why didn't you get vaccinated though?
Thank you, very good advice. I’ve been to Gambia once, didn’t die there, hoping to be more precautious in Colombia this time. Thanks a bunch, you are the best.
It was an unplanned trip, I came from Europe to visit a friend in the US and decided to go to Colombia for 5 days. Getting a vaccine in the US aint worth it since it wont take full effect before I’m there. Thanks for the tip though.
no every mosquito can infect you with yellow fever and indeed is rare in this year's. I live in a tropical city, there are mosquitoes rn but I haven't get yellow fever or dengue. I don't know anyone who had it

You are going to a yellow fever zone, if you are not vaccinated you want to be serious about mosquito repellent, and if I were you I'd do some permethrin treatment for clothing, and for a mosquito net.

Note that there are some areas (national parks?) near where you are marked "obligatory" in terms of vaccination. Not sure how that is enforced, but you need to be aware of it.

Out of curiosity, why are you going to Leticia?
Why don't you get your yellow fever vaccination op?

hey anons, thinking of doing a gap year in east asia sometime during university (i've heard that's the best time of year to do it due to weather), and am trying to decide between seoul/tokyo/hong kong/shanghai/taipei/etc. how do each of these compare in terms of:

- art
- entertainment (arcades, noraebangs, dvdbangs etc.)
- history
- nature
- vegan food (bluepilled basedboy here)
- cool, unique shops
- underground music scenes (metal, underground rap etc.)
- affordability
- making friends

thanks in advance

vegans in asian countries don't exist like in the West (especially in the US), I suggest somewhere in Europe.
There was a huge metal community in France and they just had the hell fest, look into it also the South of France, Paris is cool but way too expensive.
The South has a lot of nature mountains, food, underground music, affordable, history, art, ect...

>Oh, I travel to meet the locals
You can meet locals and ask them whatever you're wondering right here on this board without having to spend thousands of dollars.

>Oh, I travel to see the culture
There are thousands of youtube videos showing every aspect of every culture online. You'll get to see a hundred times more through those videos than you will be able to see in real life. And it's free.

>Oh, I travel for the food
Use Google and you'll find a dozen or more restaurants in the city closest to you that serves dishes from wherever you want to go, by people from that country

>Oh, I travel to meet people
Walk outside your door. Walk to the closest hostel and you'll meet the very same foreign people that you'd meet in whichever country you want to go. Want to meet a specific group of people? Google and figure out where they hang out in your city.

So, why do you travel?

>You can meet locals and ask them whatever you're wondering right here on this board without having to spend thousands of dollars.
Well, yeah this one is true if you only want to talk to 4channers.

>There are thousands of youtube videos showing every aspect of every culture online. You'll get to see a hundred times more through those videos than you will be able to see in real life. And it's free.
Watching bald&bankrupt and rick steves doesn't even come close to experiencing a foreign culture yourself. You might find some videos of locals showing off their culture, but its spoon fed at best and again is no replacement for the real thing.

>Use Google and you'll find a dozen or more restaurants in the city closest to you that serves dishes from wherever you want to go, by people from that country
If you live in or near a major city, then this can be true, though you are certainly going to pay a lot more for the meal and the quality and authenticity is variable (especially in the US).

>Walk outside your door. Walk to the closest hostel and you'll meet the very same foreign people that you'd meet in whichever country you want to go. Want to meet a specific group of people? Google and figure out where they hang out in your city.
The point of meeting people while you travel is that (most of the time) it just happens without any planning or extra effort put in. You are all strangers in a foreign land and that brings people together. While its very possible to meet people the way you are suggesting, it completely defeats the purpose.

Anyway to answer the question. I travel because I like to. Simple as.
We had this exact same thread a few days ago word for word, and the previous week before tnsh word for word. If you're going to respond please don't do it earnestly
Do you honestly believe that people have sex with the sole intention to procreate, rather than to experience it for themselves?

Not all of life is based in logic - we must do the things that satisfy us emotionally. People want to do things, to see things and feel them. It's like wetting your face with cold water - it invigorates the mind to be in a new environment. In my home city I cannot drive across a desert, I cannot hike vast mountain ranges. I cannot sail the Mediterranean, nor touch castle rock that has stood for millennia. At home I have to work, I have to deal with the tedium of every day life. Even if I take time off but stay here, it's not the same. Travel is a brief break from the mundane trivialities of life and reawakens me to who I am.

Taking an impromptu trip with a friend to Phoenix AZ for 3 days before I vacation in California

No idea what's there, anyone have any recommendations as to what I should check out?
Scottsdale if you're looking to party with upper-tier girls
Tempe if you're looking to party with ASU girls

As for nature: Sedona for Red Rocks and beautiful hiking, the Grand Canyon is breathtaking but far from anything else, Flagstaff is a really chill little town that has a kind of lazy stoner vibe.

Don't go to Tucson.

Honestly AZ is a big fucking city and it's pretty nice. I love it outside of summer.
Thanks for the info, very helpful

I ignore these people and walk right into their picture every time I see bullshit like this. They never say anything to me and awkwardly pretend I don’t exist.
The irony of OP is that it's in NZ, and aside from a select few places (like Roy's Peak) you'll basically have the opposite experience in NZ as that picture indicates.

People flock to what's easy/popular. There's plenty of room left over.
My mother made us all pose in front of Old Faithful when it went off instead of looking at it.
NZ was awesome for hikes and general /out/ stuff, cool how empty everything is for the most part.

If I take a train from Amsterdam to Paris, once I get out of the Netherlands, will I be checked by police at some point for drugs?

What if I take a bus?

Why would you spread this disinformation kankernigger? Crossing the borders by train have a relative high amount of drug checks by the police. I wouldn't recommend it.

Untrue. Trains and busses from the Netherlands are inspected more than from other countries. Mail and packages are checked more as well.

Any advice for what to do after booking yourself what you thought would be a nice relaxing few days at a beach town close to some gorgeous ruins, and then realise you've instead come across one of England's worse dumping grounds for chav trash?

Some "highlights" include:
>overweight fat arsed women wearing shorts that ride up their ass
>norf FC dads wearing a variety of red or blue football shirts
>english breakfasts served at every restaurant, no exceptions. The rest of the menu is a 5 page mix of shitty food from Indian to Italian at the same place.
>all your favourite hits from artists such as LMFAO blasting until 4am every night, in tandem with Robbie Williams from the bar opposite.
>can't walk a minute down the street without some kurd looking shit yelling out "YES PLEASE SIR YOU WANT DINNER SIR?"

So does anyone have any experience with these shitholes? Pic related, where I am.

I am not from the UK so personally I enjoy watching Chavs. They often look like they are having a good time and sometimes brawl or vomit which is neat.
>getting upset that people are wearing FC shirts
sounds like you need a good wank or something to calm down, you're way to angry at essentially the stupidest thing possible
Where, precisely, did you go, OP?

How slutty are the chav females? Knock a few up with your superior genetic material.
Maybe stay at a B&B or Guesthouse further outside town? Those places are usually better for arranging tours and getting tips on quietest beaches, best ruins, etc.
