No, they are times when there were only French. With the internet and since Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia etc ... are in the EU, the news prostitute is mostly foreign.

Wife (then gf) and I decided on a whim to leave France to move to Reunion.
Not too difficult on the paperwork since Reunion is France, but still a 10K km journey with our cat and a 20 ft container.
We wanted sunshine all year long and a more laidback lifestyle. We weren’t disappointed.

I got laid off near the time my lease was ending so I just pared my belongings down to what could fit in my car and left. I worked a series of seasonal jobs for a few years, traveling and road tripping in between.

Sup /trv/

I used to do some trip reports a few years ago, and for the sake of posting some interesting /trv/ related content I figured I'd do a trip report from my last holiday, as I spent most of December in Ethiopia.

I'd start my trip report with a pic from where we landed, Addis Abeba, but suffice to say that after having visited 11 Sub-Saharan countries I concluded that cities in this part of Africa aren't really worth visiting. I will immediately add that Addis is generally cleaner and nicer than most other African cities, as well as being a lively city with fun nightlife and a number of quality museums buuuut it's also a very young city: the city as we know it was only founded in 1886 by emperor Menelik II. As a result, there's relatively little of the either the history or the tribal culture which are prevalent elsewhere in the country, and I selected a different first pic. Explanation of said pic at the end of the thread.

Wondering how easy it is to acquire firearms while traveling.

So you're in a foreign country and you want to go hunting or maybe just want a little sumpin' for protection in sketchy areas. How easy is it to get your hands on either a rifle or pistol in your country? Especially for long road trips where the threat of wild animal attacks or thuggery is possible when your car breaks down and you're way out in the sticks with no means of communication.

>"But just call the cops anon."
>Never again. They're either 6 hours away, just don't show up, or ask for money to help you.

I'd prefer not get robbed or charged by a boar again.

Having a CCW doesn't matter when purchasing from established stores with the capacity to do a background check. In private sales it's a personal preference since it easily proves you're in good standing with the law and they won't have to jump through the hoops of a background check with you. Regardless there's paper work to do depending on your local/federal laws. In some states you don't have to register rifles but you do have to register pistols. Some don't register anything while some require you to register it all. But you have to log the transfer.

It's not like going to someone's house and buying a lawnmower or old bookcase, there's paperwork to do.

What if you sold a gun to someone without proper transfer papers then they killed someone (intentionally or accidental) with it? The gun would still be registered to your name and then you will be held legally responsible for illegal transfer and a bunch of different shit. The silver lining in that would be the ATF/FBI will have the courtesy to buttfuck you first so Tyroe doesn't completely rip you half on the first go when you get to prison.
>>
>>1544256
I never said anything about a background check.
You mentioned CCW after being new in the state.

(For the most part,) there is no firearm registration in the United States.

Do you believe that all in-person firearms that are sold/traded go through paperwork?
Can you provide some real world examples where law enforcement went after somebody where a plain and private transaction was completed in person?

from my travels in europe, south america, and asia I’ve made some observations about other foreign travellers. I’m a swede btw so i might be a little biased towards some countries

Most based (in order):
>Dutch - Good sense of banter and fun people to travel / drink with
>Irish - Same as above, and also fun to chat shit about Brits with

Mid-tier:
>Aussies - I swear there’s no mid ground with these fags, either they’re super obnoxious or down to earth
>Brazilians - Fun people but a little annoying at times
>Finnish - Quiet but once you get drinking they open up fast and are fun
>Spain - Cliquey af but most are fun to hang out with especially if you speak the language
>Koreans - Also cliquey but probably the funnest people to drink with, saw many korean girls outdrink american guys in Laos
>French guys
>Japs - Nice people but so easily scammed and quite boring

beacuse you have chink eyes.im european and ding dongs simply dont talk to me. you korean and japanese and chinese are looking pretty same.

Alright /trv/, I've exhausted my options so I come to you my old friends. I've travelled to dozens of countries, done the whole Real Travel(tm) meme but now I'm looking for a quiet travel destination.

Somewhere not very populated or developed that'd just let me roam or hitch around, and set up camp wherever. Ruins and aesthetic nature are a BIG bonus.


Iceland is the only destination I've been to that truly fit the bill in the past. Wandering/hitching from small settlement to settlement, stocking up on supplies then setting up camp between the next place, seeing the sights, enjoying the quiet. An old school adventure basically.

Looking to leave mid March and have no end date in mind, budget isn't too much of an issue (I'm not begpacker scum).

Does anywhere even exist like this anymore?

I dream of Algeria, but the tourist visa is a pain in the ass so I just keep going back to Morocco. But I did have a layover in Algiers recently and just looking out the airplane window had me drooling over the landscape. Some day.
What I like about Morocco is the complete freedom. Stumble in at any port of entry, go wherever you want, camp wherever you want. Scotland's the only other country where I've felt that sense of liberty. If OP liked Iceland he'd enjoy Scotland too.

>>1544609
I first went to Sardinia because Ryanair was doing flights for 15 euro, but I fell in love with the place. Mostly because I'm really into foraging and wild food is everywhere there. The forests are nice and there are many campable beaches. Pic related, the only good travel photo I've ever taken
Although from everything I've heard about Corsica, I suspect it's even better.

Hi guys,

I have a job lined up in Alaska for the summer and the company is flying me out of Seattle. I live in Florida and thought this would be a good opportunity to do a road trip and see some sights. Am I out of my mind driving this kind of a distance?

Pic related is the route and below are the stops;
>sleep in car near Kansas City
>1 night in Winnipeg
>1-2 in Calgary
>1 in Banff/Jasper
>1-2 in Vancouver
>2-3 in Seattle

Are 10 days a realistic amount for this distance? My flight in Seattle is on the 15th of June and I'm in Europe until the 4th of June so my wiggle room is not much. Also, my employment ends the 15th of August and my classes resume the 26th of August. Is 11 days enough if I want to stop in some national parks on the return journey? On top of that, does anyone know of any way I can store my car in Seattle for 2 months? Any tips and advice along the way in also appreciated. Thanks

Is this a joke? That is the most boring route I have ever seen. I've done road trips between WA and FL six times. There is so much cool shit to see. 10 days is more than enough. You'll finish your route a lot sooner since it will be so comically bad.

Don't forget I have to drive back. The return trip I'll do;
>Seattle to Portland
>Portland to Butte
>Butte to Yellowstone
>Yellowstone to SLC
>SLC to Denver
>Denver to OKC
>OKC to Florida

I haven't yet decided how long I'll stay where because I have the possibility to leave a few days early but all I do know is I do want to see a bit more time in Colorado. I was going to ask once the time got closer. I only chose the Canadian route because it makes more sense to get to Seattle sooner than stopping somewhere interesting every few hours when I'm crunched for time

What are your worst turbulence stories, /trv/?

>flying a 12 hour flight from LAX to Japan
>flight is going smoothly
>starts to get a little bumpy around 10 hours in
>out of nowhere, the plane shakes quite violently
>a sudden rush of G force hits me and I'm getting that weird feeling that you get in roller coasters
>lasts a good 2-3 seconds before the plane levels out

That was a crazy flight. I swear the plane must have dropped a good amount of altitude quickly for it to feel like a roller coaster.

Is it now really banned to sell food in the streets in Colombia? When I visited I bought food on the street (ice, empanadas, arepas)

A guy was fined $270 for buying an empanada off a street vendor: https://www.colombia.com/actualidad/nacionales/bogota-joven-fue-multado-con-800-mil-pesos-por-comprar-una-empanada-en-puesto-ambulante-219173

It is not entirely banned, nor is it legal for that matter

I think he got fined just because that cop just felt like fucking him up by fining him, not because of an enforced task or rule.
>>
>>1543700
no. apparently he was fined because the residents of the area asked the police to take off these vendors from their streets, the dude was warned by police about not buying from them but he did it anyway. So, he was fined for "promoting illegal sales" or something like that.

there is just no way of enforcing a rule that penalizes street sells or people buying, the "right to work" would prevail and it would be impossible to fine every buyer.

Does anyone have an idea of how easy it is/where is the best place to get shrooms in Colombia? I'm not a big drug person by any means, but I think it would be a cool experience to trip while it in Tayrona, a coffee farm, Salt Cathedral, etc. I'll be in Bogota, Santa Marta and Medellín, I'd that helps.
