I have a little game of sorts for you /trv/
Each colour on this map has a colour, and each colour represents a certain number of points.
>dark green - 1
>light green - 2
>yellow - 3
>orange 4
>red 5
For every country you have been too (not counting lay overs or your home country) add up the points.
lets see who has the most /trv/ points.

What is it like living in medium sized european towns? Are Uber and food delivery services used often? Are grocery stores, banks, etc within walking distance? I'm curious about /trv/'s experience with this.

In American suburbs you need to drive 10 minutes to get to anything, which is why it's really shitty if you don't have a car, unless you live in a major city which sucks if you don't like city life.

What do you mean by "European towns"?
The countries themselves are incredibly diverse and then it also changes within them countries
>UK
Unless you're in the country side, living in suburbs/city is good. Taxis are around in the towns and the town should be around a 5 - 15 min walk pretty much no matter where you are.
However, do not live in poorer areas like Staffordshire, Birmingham, Liverpool etc.
Places like Oxford, Witney, Cambridge, Dorset are great, but are much more expensive and alot of people are middle-class.
You don't need a good job to live in somewhere like in Oxford or Witney, my brothers used to work at the local foundry and get by pretty well but beware that unless you regularly visit the pubs, clubs etc you won't have a too fun time. The pub is the main place for socialising and generally having fun.

kek, why'd you post my town? Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This is Partenkirchen's walking street, Ludwig Strasse I think. Anyway, there's no uber in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, but food delivery is the classic style; calling the place then waiting 20-40 minutes.

>Are grocery stores, banks, etc within walking distance?
I'm 37 years old and I've never needed to own a car.

If you'd like to know more about Garmisch-Partenkirchen I can help you with that too.

It seems like Delhi is really more of a hassle than most places, but that doesn't really stop me
I guess with touts you just need to employ common sense, but I'll be sure to keep my wits about
>>
>>1543619
It's honestly not that bad, especially if you stay somewhere like Saket instead of Paharganj. Even the less affluent neighborhoods across the Yamuna are better than the railway station, at least in regards to daily hassle.

If you have common sense, you'll be completely fine. People get tripped up when they're fresh off international flights and tired, or forget that they're on vacation while most others aren't. Just find a healthy balance between being too skeptical and trusting.

I really can't stress it enough, though: if you end up staying in Paharganj or Karol Bagh, almost everyone who approaches you in the street will be trying to rip you off. The same shit does NOT happen in most other places (unless you're in a similar touristic part of Agra, Jaipur, Varanasi, etc).

> Taipei, Feb. 15 (CNA) Over 27,000 kilograms of eggs contaminated with the toxic insecticide fipronil reached consumer markets in northern Taiwan from Jan. 27 to Feb. 13, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Friday.
>
> COA deputy chief Huang Chin-cheng (黃金城) said the laboratory testing of the egg samples was delayed because of the nine-day Lunar New Year holiday, and because the eggs were not tested until after the holiday the results only came out a few days ago, according to Apple Daily.

So, the farm apparently intentionally timed it so they could sell their product without testing, hoping it would get missed in the post-CNY backlog.

Currently studying in Florence, have 9 days in late march to travel around. I have English, German, and basic Italian, and would like to go somewhere where I can get by on those.

So my wife and I are heading out west late may/early june and I was wondering if anyone had any tips regarding trails/camping/general good stuff to see related to Yellowstone/Tetons?
>>
>where to stay
Jackson Hole is the big tourist area so there's tons of hotels, byt they're all expensive. Personally I always camp outside when I'm there. You can find campsites online but they fill up fast, especially in the summer. The farther out you reserve the better, unless you like living on the edge. Cheaper campsites are usually more in the Teton area and away from Yellowstone.
If you're rich there's cabins for rent but they fill up quick. Idk how far back you need to reserve since I've never done it. The more people you have the more it's worth it, imo.
>what to do
Go see Old Faithful like the 10 million chinese people who show up every summer. After that check out West Thumb. The park is pretty big and you can find stuff to do by just driving around, pretty much. Check out Upper Falls too, if they've reopened - when I was there last summer there was some kind of construction going on there.
Teton wise, I recommend the Table Rock trail if you're fit - the view is awesome and it's a decent day hike, whether you take the short but steep route or the longer flatter route. The Alaska Basin trail is cool too but a lot longer - if you're up for it you can do a 3 day hiking trip all the way through. On the east side of the mountains there's lots of lakes and stuff to see, and Mormon Row if you want instagram pictures.
Driggs, ID is a recent place to eat out/buy food/get expensive boat rentals. I recommend visiting Corner Drug while you're there and getting a lime freeze if they're in season.
Google this stuff and take a look at surrounding features of both parks. You could spend a month in that area and not see everything.
>>
>>1543257
Be prepared for enourmous crowds in Yellowstone. Because of the cost of hotels I'd plan on camping most of the way. Id also plan out your route and where you will stay for each night. Grand Tetons are beautiful I wanna go back this summer. Yellowstone is too but it's very crowded.

What do you think about this roadtrip? I will be travelling by buses/trains. Itinerary is as follows:

Kiev - 3 nights
Odessa - 5 nights (to chill by the beach)
Chisinau (Moldova) - 2 nights
Bucharest - 2 nights
Brasov - 2 nights
Cluj Napoca - 2 nights
Budapest - 1 night (but I was already there, just needed a place to stay before heading back to Poland)
Krakow - 2 nights

I know many of those places need more time to get a real experience, but I have limited time and wanted to make a bigger trip rather then choosing 1 or 2 spots.
I've been to Lviv before, that's why it's out.

I'm travelling in August. I usually like just wandering through cities, going on a tour, learning about the culture and just getting the feel of another country. That's why I'd like to travel by bus/train with locals. I also like nature and hiking, but on this trip I'm focusing on cities.
I travel with my fiancee, so I'm not into clubbing, whores and such. We want to visit the cities, go to the pubs, meet some locals, try local cuisine and chill out.

Assuming you are not really tight on money, cut out the buses as much as possible and replace them with trains and rideshares. Price disparity between trains and buses isn't as high as in western yurope. Trains are more comfortable for travel and the cabin layout in some wagons is conductive to striking up conversations. Rideshares are the same in this regard, you are already travelling with someone who wants to get to know strangers.

Cannot say much about the rest, but regarding H to I leg of trip I sure hope you are visiting a spa and taking at least one day to hike in Tatras. Actually it's the best to park in hot water after a day spent hiking the mountains. Visiting a cave may not be a bad idea either.

And as other anons said, 5 days at the beach is too much.

Hello /trv/,

I'm taking a 10 day trip to Germany this summer while also stopping in Salzburg (as well as Berchtesgaden nearby) and Prague. We'll be renting a car and splitting up the driving on the Autobahn. We are starting in Frankfurt going counterclockwise. We are flying out from Frankfurt so that creates the loop.

What do you guys think about this route? Anything on here that we should skip, something not here that we should go see? Where do you think we should spend more time in than others? Anything in these cities you recommend? etc.
