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.

I really like the idea of traveling, but I've never felt like I could justify it. I tend to have a very utilitarian value system when it comes to these things. What are some productive reasons to travel, and what things can I do while traveling to make the time useful?

We aren't American. The friend I have in mind was volunteering at an orphanage in Ghana and a refugee camp in Lebanon (teaching English to women in the latter).

That's pretty cool. I'll have to keep volunteering in mind.

>>1786211
Yeah she saw some cool things in those countries and by volunteering they got put up in accommodation and such. She made a bunch of friends she's still in contact with. She now works in the same line as work as me (public sector) and given her interest in international development I imagine it looked good on her resume.

Tell me how your experience was traveling to the UK.

Sounds good, actually. I've seen so many variations of "cheddar" cheese that I would like to try the real version.

There is this old cafe there run by some old English women and has been in her family for years, There you will find the best most authentic english tea and scons. Across the road from there is a cheese shop that have pretty much everything and they even have stuff out to try before you buy it.

If you're only been the London, you've only seen a bastardised version of the UK. I would recommend travelling outside to get a more authentic experience of the UK.

Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester are the obvious choices but consider seaside coastal towns, Newcastle and Devon as alternative destinations.

London is very much separate from UK lifestyles, much like Paris is to France. You'll find a lot of attractions there but its likely find a better experience away if you're looking to see UK for what it really is.

Asian Burger here, I have plenty of guns in the states but which other countries are the best for shooting guns, legally or illegally.

On my last trip I came across and AK in Southern Spain and having a gun in europe is a pretty nice feeling ngl

>Canada has like zero shootings why are they still trying to ban shit over there?
Anon-kun, there's no use asking for logic where there is none. Gun control is, by definition, illogical.

>In the states everyone wants to ban the scary guns to stop mass shootings because they think it will help and then they point to canada and say "See it worked there"
Ironically, Canada also likes to point fingers at other countries. They say things like "We don't want to end up being like the Americans" or "Look what happened in New Zealand."

>So if canada is still banning shit doesnt that mean it either doesnt work or want a disarmed populace
Both, actually. In a strange twist of irony, Canada is trying to become more and more like Communist China, while Chinese immigrants who move to Canada are trying to exercise their newly discovered rights. I see a lot of chinks at the range, as a matter of fact.

I heard that it's quite difficult to go shooting as a non-resident (i.e. tourist) in Switzerland, as the shooting ranges aren't commercial, but more targeted towards their militia system.

>>1786092
Fair enough. But Swiss people are very into self-control; people who aren’t seriously burned-out alcoholics don’t really get noticeably drunk in public, much less while shooting.

>>1786196
Not sure; I live here and don’t shoot. But I know there are private clubs and ranges with nothing to do with national service (for kids, for example), and assumed that one could buy temporary >>1786073

How's learning Vietnam going? I have an opportunity for 2021 to stay a year abroad in either Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, or a few other SEA places (from a list of dozens of countries worldwide). From the three of these though, it looks like Vietnamese would be easiest to learn. I know some Korean, enough to get around and I was bilingual as a kid. Chinese seems stupid hard with all the characters, especially traditional Chinese, and Thai seems more difficult just because of the added workload of a new writing system.

Do you like learning Vietnamese? It's a bit of an ugly language but I really want to give it a go.

It is much much worse my friend. Had a fake female facebook account years ago. Hundreds of messages. If the competition bothers you, become better.

I pretty much have the same problem. Most respond to my opening line and some even contact me first.

Then we usually talk about hobbies (which are basically watching netflix, reading, listening to music and whatever), about studies and that's about it. The conversation rarely goes more than this and it quickly dies. They rarely ask questions back or anything.

What are some unknown gems of Europe?

I visited France last year, and didn't wanna just visit Paris, so I also visited some smaller unknown cities, like a city called Nice in the south. I really enjoyed this city way more than Paris.

This summer I wanna go on a longer european trip, so I'm wondering: what are some unknown gems of Europe?
I'm planning to visit Modena (actually the city where Ferrari was founded), but what else?

I've been to Charleroi in November and it was so grimdark that it gave the city a strong atmospheric-ambiental identity.

It is not pretty, it is not nice but it is most definitely one of the most interesting and unique places I've been to.

Would recommend for a weekend trip. ( Afternoon in Namur could also be fitted in).

I like to keep currency of each country i visit, preferably paper notes. What was your fav currency/cool finds that you held onto?

I know this is retarded, but this thread made think about how hilarious it would be if a whole lot of tourists visited a small country and ended up taking a large majority of its currency back home with them. I don't think this is technically possible, but I wonder what kind of problems it would cause if it did happen.
>>
Whenever they have it I always buy the metrocards locals use for public transportation, not a temporary paper ticket or the expensive tourist cards that they offer. I’m always fascinated by the differences between each system.

I probably have at least 50, but they’re not on me. I have these ones because I was supposed to go these cities soon.
>>
>>1786132
Aw sheeit my nigga, I do this too, although I do also collect paper ticket stubs. I have an AT HOP card (New Zealand), an Octopus Card (Hong Kong), and an EasyCard (Taipei, Taiwan). I actually got my EasyCard three years ago, and I used the same card when I revisited Taiwan recently. I also have a Compass Card (BC, Canada) that I only use to take the train back home from the airport.

My weirdest one would have to be the ZVV (Zurich, Switzerland) tickets. There is nothing to scan. No bar codes, no QR codes, no magnetic strips, no chips, no nothing. Many paper-based ticket systems in other countries do have them, but not in Zurich. There's nothing on the trains/buses/trams to verify your ticket, they pretty much just take your word for it. I supposed you could get randomly checked by transport security, but I've never had that happen to me.

Anon from: >>1786057. I do the same thing, but my metro card collection isn't even close to organized. Also have an Istanbulkart somewhere, along with quite a few others. Probably have upwards of a dozen Delhi Metro cards, kek. Unfortunately, this shit's scattered all over my room, and I think it'd be a day-long project just to track most of them down.

I also save a lot of business cards, travel tickets, and receipts, but I don't think that's too uncommon. Usually it all just sits around in boxes for months on end, but every so often, I'll go through a pile. Kinda strange but fun way to relive memories.

TBQH this thread--along with the lockdown--is tempting me to actually start organizing my stuff.

Coincidentally I’m from Vancouver as well. I don’t really live in the city anymore but know they’ve got the wristbands and the compass-mini, wouldn’t mind getting my hands on one of the former.

Probably my favourite design would be the troika card, from Moscow, additionally the city and St. Petersburg both have some really stunning metro stations.

Expat living in Norway here. The situation isn't too bad, especially since I live outside of the Oslo area. I figured if they loosen the lock-down a bit over here while the borders stay closed I may use the opportunity to actually do a bit of traveling in Norway. I've actually never been outside of the Trondheim area so this might be a good opportunity to check out the North or maybe Bergen. Maybe take the night train to Bodø, then go to Lofoten.
Probably won't happen before mid-May, though.

All fine over here, I'm in a country with very few infections. Can't do any trips for the next couple months, but gives me some time to catch up on reading and gaming. Before the pandemic hit, I was doing a trip every month or so.

It's actually pretty comfy to settle down and chill for a while. I've been enjoying the slower pace of life.

Even after corona virus destroys multiple airlines, airports etc and prices go up as competition goes down there is something more at sinister at play. A left wing agenda

"Until a few weeks ago, politicians in Europe were leaning toward making air travel more expensive to discourage planet-heating carbon emissions. "

Its worse than that anon. Here in the states, they're implementing state passports (need this special passport to go to a different state).
