I'm looking to do a large Texas loop this winter - right now, I'm thinking of rolling through Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, big bend (using marfa as base camp), and El Paso, and spending a 2-3 days in each. The goal is to soak up as much "authentic" local culture as possible, as well as your traditional Texas digs (rodeos and whatnot). Any must-see stops? Places I'm overlooking?

visit the Czech stop in West, TX, a Collin's St Bakery if you come across it and at least one Buc-ee's if you want to road trip the real Texas way

I'm raised and live in central TX if you want to know about it
>>
Dallas and San Antonio are shit. Probably skip Houston too, and I say that as a Houstonian. Do the hill country with Austin as your base and then West Texas. I love far West Texas and I think Marfa is worth visiting, but it's a long way from Big Bend NP so I would consider staying in or near the park for 1-3 days and then Marfa for 1-3 days. If you have more time in Marfa then I also like Fort Davis and Guadalupe Mountains which are relatively close, but keep in mind that everything in that region is unbelievably fucking far apart.

Winter isn't rodeo season. Eat some barbecue when you're in central Texas.

>>1654527
Tubing is a good suggestion but he said winter.

>>1654527
I agree - visit the Hill Country west of San Antonio. You'll only find mediocrity and conformity in the big cities. Look at the Texas Monthly website for road trips.

I mean if Texas is what gets you going more power to you, but I've lived here my entire life and have been at varying degrees of trying to get out. It's not terrible, and you're right about good food and friendly people, but the weather is just offensive year-round and that friendly shit goes right out the window as soon as you get on the road.
If you come near the gulf coast at all, do it in the winter (Dec-Jan, maybe Feb if it's a nice year).
Rodeo is overpriced and overrated.
t. Houston

If you do end up visiting Houston and you like beer, definitely hit up Hay Merchant. Very relaxed place, you can usually hear yourself think/have an actual conversation if it's not a Fri/Sat night or something,and something like 70-80 beers on tap at any given time. Great food too.

Hi all /a/non here. Going to texas thursday for a week to go to an anime convention and meet some of my US friends. I was wondering what the best way for a foreigner to stay safe is? I just am winding down my week in california and heading to texas now but everyone in California was more rude than I thought and california is the good state. I can only imagine what texas cowboys and guns are like.

I'll be in a hostel in downtown dallas and need advice on places to drink, things to see on the metro line, and good grub downtown.

Also is it true that you can buy basically any anime art books in the USA legally?

i have a soft spot for italy, i wouldn't mind spending some years there after retirement

but i've met a lot of old people who lived in wonderful places (a 90 year old woman living in a $10k per month retirement home for example) and they always wanted to return to the place that they grew up in, mostly to do with people that they know that still live there and them being the only link to the past that they have left

growing old seems hard man

>>
>>1655361
well, Its ok, I will tell you the MUST SEE places and the DONT GO places

first, the touristic parts. Sevilla is the most beautiful of the western european cities, or at least is fighting for top 1 with firenze. Its the european city with the biggest historical center, so theres plenty of things to do.

First, and foremost, the two first places I would go are Parque Maria Luisa (its like central park but actually good) its like a forest on the middle of the city, you can go for a walk there, also there is plenty of things to explore, its really well built. People go there at night to fuck (even tho they close the park at like 11 pm. Also sometimes people try to mug people but its like 1 case each 3 months and you should be very unluky.

There you will also fin the plaza españa, which is the photo you posted on OP, you can get on one of the boats for 6 euros half an hour, girls love it.

Second best place to go if you are interested in culture is el alcazar de sevilla. The line is always full, but it goes fast. In summer they close at 7 and kick people out at like 8. You must pay to enter tho.

the cathedral isalso fucking awesome and will make your jaw drop, you can go up the giralda if you want, (the cathedral is also pay to enter). Other cool places are archivos the indias, which is just besides the cathedral and the alcazar. The center is awesome, theres also la plaza de la iglesia del salvador, (another austanding cathedral-paid too-) thats get really lively at night with young people (20-25-30 yo), they go there to drink cerveza and eat tapas at the restaurants, shit's cheap there, but good. La torre del oro, in the rives is free to visit every monday on mornings, they close at 2 pm if I remember correctly. La campana and around is where shops are located, most of them are multinationals tho. Close to la campana are las setas, its a new monument they built 5 years ago, you can go up and see all the city from its top, you must pay tho.
>>
>>1655390
Under las setas theres the ruins of a roman villa, the visit is paid. if you want to eat food any place will do just fine, BUT if you want the real thing, and CHEAP you can try restaurant LA GORDA, just in front of la torre del oro, its spanish cuisine and its cheap, besides that theres also another one just around that corner but I dont remember its name, it is good too.

Lastly, if you love the romansyou can visit santiponce, theres italica, one of the most important cities on la betica (roman name for andalusia).

For clubbing you can go to either to la plaza de hercules, which is like the international clubbing zone, theres a lot of foreigners there, in particular theres a club called euroka, which is shit but giris love it for some reason.

btw people will talk about you using the "giri" thing which just means outsider on a neutral context, but if you do retarded shit they will just say look what that fucking giri is doing" or something like that.

anyways, theres also el parque maria luisa at night, theres like 3 clubs there that are real good and popular, only opens at summer tho. The names are alfonso, bilindos, and libano.

Do not go to:
Las vegas
Los pajaritos
Las 3000 viviendas

I'm also a Brit and I've been living in Seville for a couple of years now. Some fair advice from the others in here that I wouldn't disagree with at all but I guess I will have a more similar perspective to yourself.

Seville itself is beautiful and very temperate in the time that you will be here although will get chillier than you might think towards Christmas, particularly since the buildings often are built to shit out as much heat as possible. For example, my home has no radiators, insulation or carpet.

If you give some more info on what you'll be doing here and budget I could maybe give some advice on where to look for accommodation but, if you can, definitely try and live in within the city walls or in Triana. Check out idealista and fotocasa for some ideas. I live near Alameda and it's always a popular area a bit away from the main tourist stuff but close to a lot of action. It's where I was aiming when I moved and I'm glad to be here.

Seville is a major city so for girls you'll be fine, both local and foreign.

Any more questions feel free. Also be sure to explore elsewhere in Andalucia whilst you have the opportunity.

>>1655407
>plaza de hercules
i meant alameda de hercules, sorry

When I travel through europe, SEA and China I see a lot of people from France and Spain, or Spanish speaking countries.
Maybe 10% speak English or another second language. 40% can string together a few words. 50% speak so little English that even a Chinese shopkeeper, desperately trying to explain the price of "two five yuan", is getting frustrated at their lack of communication skills. You cant even get a bus or talk to any local person.

Why do people travel like this? You cant have fun when you cant even buy something without looking like a cucumber in a fruit salad.

t. Just stood behind a French guy for 10 minutes, while he was trying to get food in French
>>
Not sure what you're trying to accomplish with this thread but I have never had an issue even when the other person knows nothing of English. I recently went to Vietnam and would always eat street food. Finding the price was never hard because the vendor would either put up their fingers to signify the number or they'd literally show me the paper note I needed to pay with. They were so friendly I miss those bastards

My partner and I are in London for 10 days, with travel to Salisbury for 2 and to Edinburgh for 3/4. (So I guess 4 days of travel?) Looking at the train times is freaking me out since I don't want to have to be constrained to a certain time.

>>1655375
Stay at the Marina Bay Sands if you can afford it. The rooftop infinity pool is incredible. Otherwise, you really don’t need 3 days in Singapore. Everything can be done in a day or two max. Check out some hawker stands, check out the Chinatown, and then check out the gardens. I’d recommend spending more time in other places in SEA (Vietnam, Thailand, etc.)

can we get an Iran thread?

I have been interested in visiting this country for quite a few years and considering visiting during a multi-country holiday.

seems to be a very ancient place with much culture and history, and every Persian I meet IRL is the most hospitable.

I'm interested in hiking and food, anyone got some vague recommendations for me?

The sex craze is something I've only ever read on 4chan. Yes, you'll match with a lot of girls on Tinder in the secular cities and no, they won't be bots, but IME they ignored any talk about meeting up in person.
But maybe I'm just not attractive to Iranians. Saying سلام خوبی (means something like "hey what's up") is a good conversation starter because almost no tourists can speak/write a word of Farsi.

Due to certain circumstances me and my Mrs are looking to go on holiday to Koh Samui or Cape Verde at the end of August/beginning of September. Both slap bang in the middle of rainy season. It’ll be the last holiday for a few years so I dont want it to be a bad memory of sat in a hotel room whilst its pouring down outside? Any experiences or advice?
>>
>>1655362
>bad memory of sat in a hotel room
cape verde is nothing more just an island for all inclusive holidays. There are things you can do like going with a jeep to little villages, but that is all, it was a letdown for me.
You can buy a trip to sao vincente or santo antao to go 1500 m high, see an inactive volcanic crater, and see the ribeira grande waterfalls.
The brother of my wife went fishing at sea with locals (for 300 euro kek), he said it was a much better experience than doing these stupid tours.

China has basically been practicing QE-on-steroids by printing monopoly money for more than 15 fucking years all the while cooking the books to combat inflation, meaning every chink who held a tiny stock portfolio is now suddenly a millionaire. This is why tourism has suddenly become such a major fucking problem all across Europe/US in the last 10 years alone.

Since we're on the doorstep of recession and China probably won't be able to escape it like they did in '08, we're headed into a period of chinks returning back to poverty and places like Venice will go back to the way it was in the early 2000s.
