Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

How did you think it would go beforehand?
How is it going now?
Any pleasant surprises?
Any regrets?

As a Europoor I don't understand this meme of Americans wanting to leave the USA.

They think it's better elsewhere but I don't think it is.
I've yet to see educated people, doctors or entrepreneurs leaving the USA.

Idk man, i live in Atlanta and I've only really dated white or indian girls. I just don't have any (attractive) black girls in my circle, and all the bars i go to are mostly white people. I feel like people on the internet really up exaggerate how black Atlanta/metro is, and downplay the massive hipster/asian/south asian/latino populations
>>
>>1966834
I usually meet girls with dating apps. When I go to atlanta for just a couple days i get a fuckton of matches from hot young black girls, and i see them everywhere walking around. And ATL is black as fuck, wtf are you talking about?

The fact that there are other races there too is also great. I live in the southwest and its all white and mexican. I need to move somewhere with more blacks and asians
>>
>>1966843
Where do you stay, downtown? The coty limits are fairly black but 90% of Atlanta lives in the metro "suburbs" many of which arent much less dense than the city itself and usually arent more than 25% black. I lived in metro Atlanta for years and never thought it was much blacker than any other east coast/southeastern city. I mean sure compared to salt lake city or something. But not compared to Jacksonville, Richmond, Baltimore, DC, Philly, Chicago, Detrout, Cleveland, New orleans, or Birmingham. Its almost as if virtually all US cities east of the Mississippi have huge black populations

Which area of Germany should I move to?
I'm currently contemplating where should I study or take up an apprenticeship after summer and am just deeply unsure where exactly I should go as I'm originally from the Ruhr area where my family home still is but am currently stuck in western Brandenburg.
Is Berlin still a place worth moving to or just a dated meme and you can get most it offers elsewhere for far less money?

Köln is a cool young and vibrant city
People are open and laid back, there's jobs and plenty other big cities around it

Sure it doesn't have the typical old city center of a European town so there isn't much sightseeing per se, but it's a comfy city to live in.

Just be aware it's raining alot there and quite cloudy too.

I stopped in Missoula on a solo cross country road trip. It was nice, but they have some silly state law that you can't serve more than like 45oz of beer, so my stop at the brewery was short-lived. Otherwise it was fine. Didn't do much exploring but also my standards are pretty low for "nice."

I also got stuck in a river coming down a mountain in Montana because I am a huge retard and thought I was going to die, pic related.

Glad you're in the Union, but sorry you didn't make enough for it to work out for you financially.

As far as the towns you mentioned; I don't think I've been but honestly all those small northwest towns blend together for me. Maybe that's why I prefer Butte or Billings to those towns.

>>1965046
Bozeman sucks. Average house cost is, what, $600k? It's one bizarre sprawled out Suburb after another, even though there are empty fields in Bozeman itself. It's college kids and boomers, the official aesthetic goes from western to alpine but both are absolutely dripping with schmaltz...

Aside from the people and the economy, sure, it's pretty. Have fun with those winters.

Places where one may not make it out alive?


This board will crucify me for what I am about to say but I have the deathwish to travel to some dangerous place to have an adventure. Maybe a conflict zone or some sleazy backtown, some place where interesting stories might arise.
I was also thinking to photoreport on it but that may be a stretch as it would attract negative attention.

That sounds pretty fucking terrifying anon and I'm glad your ok. I think this is a lot more common than people realise tho. While I've never been raped, many men have groped me and attempted to kiss me on my travels (in a homosexual way, I know men holding hands and kissing as a greeting are normal in some places). In most countries on earth homosexuality isn't tolerated, and if your a white person in a non-white country in particular, you stand out as someone who a gay person might finally be able to release sexuality that has been repressed for decades with. Be safe anons, just because youre a man doesn't mean your safe from this shit.

Dont spend it unless you’re prepared to lose it.
The fact is most property laws and taxes benefit home country residences.
A lot of issues tax wise can arise owning property abroad.
Yes it can be fine but for less effort you’d probably get richer at home.
If you’re doing it just to have a place to live somewhere you visit often, then have at it.

Hoping to go to Lisbon this summer if borders are open and restrictions are done away with (ie. I'm not travelling to Lisbon if 'new normal' bullshit is still happening). Already capable of figuring out what to entertain myself with while I'm there but I've still got a few questions:
How is Covid actually playing out in Lisbon/Portugal right now? Is shit looking like it's going to be back to actual normal and borders open by summer?
How busy does Lisbon get during summer in normal times? Does the place become infested with tourists? I heard that a lot of Deanos go to Portugal on holiday with the lads, but do they go to Lisbon or to the Portuguese equivalent of Majorca/etc.?
Lisbon anons, what's your favourite thing to do in Lisbon that lots of people might not know about?
Anywhere near to Lisbon that isn't actually Lisbon that I should check out?

Coastal route you'll be passing through the beautiful portuguese riviera (Belém, Oeira, Cascais); see the mountains of Sintra from Cabo da Roca, mainland Europe's easternmost point; this entire stretch of coast, particularly from Ericeira to Nazaré, through Peniche, is very big with surfers; Lourinhã is know for some dinosaur shit; Caldas da Rainha is an ancient sulphurous water medical spa town, it's also known for its tilework; Nazaré has the biggest waves in the world and some of the best views in Portugal from its promontory, pic related, you'll also rather close to the monuments I posted here >>1961412; by Marinha Grande you have an ancient pine forest commissioned by the portuguese kings to fuel the country's naval industry; Aveiro is called the portuguese Venice, quite overstated as the town is rather tiny and there are just a handful of canals, still a pleasant trip to eat some good seafood.

Countryside route you'll be passing by Santarém, chill city that offers some nice views of the Tagus river; the Ribatejo region is big on country culture, cattle and horses, quintas and produce, including many festivals like the national horse fair at Golegã; you'll be passing right through Tomar and the Convent of Christ, formerly a castle of the Templar's Order.

Coimbra hosts the ancient University of Coimbra, Portugal's most prestigious; it has a lovely medieval downtown, narrow streets winding up to the university, remnants of the medieval walls along the way; old churches and convents abound, the two first portuguese kings are entombed at pic related; the Mondego river splits the city in two with lovely gardens on both sides.

OP if you're in Lisbon I recommend the Lapa area. There's bars and hole in the wall type places strewn all up and down the streets there with younger and local clientele packed inside. You'll have a bunch of folks outside congregating and doing their own thing as well. Obviously might be a more sparse now with this Covid shite going on but you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to mingle. Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays are your best bet.

As far as deanos, won't really have to worry about that. Most of them are situated down south in Albufeira especially during the summer time. You've got Hennessy's pub on the main ave and other more touristy or international food spots with English speakers there.

With that said if you go up north a bit there's a place in Torres Vedras that sells these bean pastries which I honestly believe are even better than the widely known custard tarts. I'm sure you can get them at numerous delis or bakeries in Lisbon but the ones from that specific bakery in that city are the ones a friend brought me.
