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.

MAP UDATE 4.0

In anticipation of the New Caledonia referendum, I started working on another update of the Real Traveler's™ map. That referendum failed, but it turned out to be a sizeable update nonetheless. As usual, many changes are in African countries I've yet to see anyone visit in these threads. South Sudan changed their subdivisions just days after I posted the previous African update, I was thrilled as you can imagine. Another major change is the Nagorno-Karabakh war which saw them lose three provinces and Azerbaijan gain two new ones.

I also changed the text of the color categories to avoid confusion when filling out the map, and a version and date of last update in the upper left corner to better keep track of which map is the most recent.

Pic related is the new complete template. In the next post I will also include a simple .png file that you can copy and paste over your old map in MS Paint so you can update the map without having to fill in everything again. This requires that you have the most recent map though.
>how do I know if I have the most recent map?
If Norway has 11 counties, South Sudan has 32 states and there are two islands attached to Taiwan's southern Taitung County, you have the most recent map. If any one of those three is wrong (18 Norwegian counties, 10 South Sudanese states OR no Taiwanese islands), you do not have the most recent map and copy-pasting the .png file over your map won't help. All three has to be present, just two of them means the map is outdated. You'll have to use the new complete template.

CHANGELOG (1/2):
Europe:
>added Lefke Province of Northern Cyprus
Because Cyprus is too small on the map, I had to add a few pixels to the island to fit a new province.
>added Slovenia's 12 statistical regions

Your future sucks, kid

I’ve never been there. I’m looking to just jump ship from this American shithole forever. I don’t care what it takes I’ll live like a poor pinoy if I have to. What is the minimum amount of money one guy would need In order to stay out there for a long time 1 to 5 years? I’m hearing $1200 but that’s ridiculous. Filipinos don’t even make that much. I have $6,000 to my name and can get up to 8-9k before it’s time to go. I’ll be staying in Cebu. Any budget travelers care to discuss the expenses? Budget travelers only I don’t want retarded retiree boomer opinions

Have you ever actually been to the Philippines? I spent three months in Japan, a month in Indonesia, a month in Thailand, and a month in Phil, repeat, for about two years.

To live comfortably, practically, be able to do anything worth doing, entertain the females you dream of fucking you're looking at the following, minimum, per month.

JPN: $3000
INDO, PHP: $1500
THAI: $1000

This is of course on top of travel insurance and a *minimum* $2000 "in case of oh fucking shit, break glass" fund.

Have you ever been out of the country by yourself before? What does your mother say about this? You're setting yourself up for some seriously harsh reality checks.

Gonna have to be somewhere other than those. Japan is closed to tourists, Taiwan is closed to anyone who is not going on business and also has special restrictions against travel from the Philippines, and Thailand has a stupid "must plan to stay for three months and show a big pile of money" rule.

Copypasta FAQ:
>Where should I stay in Tokyo?
Anywhere on the JR Yamanote loop line.
>Is Hiroshima+Miyajima worth it as a day trip from Osaka/Kyoto?
Not really, it's too rushed and you should probably just stay the night there.
>How do I travel by public transport?
I recommend the "Official Japan Travel App". It's free and does a good job of planning routes using public transportation.

Don't have an Amex Platinum Card?
A Charles Schwab Debit card?
A HSBC account?

Why are you throwing your money away, anon.
You'll never make it, paying ATM fees, ontop of poor FX fees and FX conversion fees.
You, you don't actually use Money Converters at airports, right? You don't actually carry cash when you travel, right?
Most /trv/ threads go toxic, so, anon, get your financials in order, and learn some financial literacy and make the best choice.

That's it, most travel cards are mostly worthless, points you'll never use. The fees you rack up traveling or paying banking fees are pretty shitty, try to reduce them entirely, anon.

Skid Row, Watts, and Crenshaw are not too bad in the day. As this anon said >>1910602 that as long as you look like you know what you are doing, you'll be fine. With that said, don't go walking there with your phone out or walking while looking down at your phone. Put jewelry away or anything that looks or seems valuable. As for walking Skid Row at night, I would probably not even do it in a car, especially with all the one way streets and that it's kind of a maze in there despite the grid layout.

What’s the cheapest places to rent in LA with some accommodations (shower / cooking, don’t care if it’s shared living). I’m planning on a 3 week stay there and want to spend as little on a room or even just a bed as I can. Privacy means nothing to me as long as the area is alright and there’s a low chance of theft. Budget is 1000$ CDN but preferably lower.

>>1912711

>>
>>1912701
Try to stay somewhere on the Gold Line, towards the end of it (Azusa). It's going to be your best bet at easily getting into downtown and the further out you go the cheaper it will be, barring wealthy stops like Pasadena and Monrovia. It's also the cleanest and probably safest metro line, I took it nearly every day and night alone when I lived in LA and never had a safety issue. Will be about a 45ish minute ride from the end to Union Station.
>>
>>1912417
well if you don't care where, then South LA, Westlake/MacArthur Park, Pacoima, Panorama City, Van Nuys, and Canoga Park are some of the cheapest places within LA City to rent, but they are ghetto. For more safety, look at Chatsworth, Granada Hills, Northridge, Woodland Hills, Santa Clarita, and some of the San Gabriel Valley cities. But the lowest you can find a one bedroom in a decent area is maybe in the $1500-1600 range, anything lower and you are in a crime infested neighborhood or a shitty bedroom.

If I want me and a girl/holiday gf to get STDs tested what should we test? Pulse clinic does all kind of tests but the 12 disease one takes 7 days for results (way too much), are HIV/HPV/syphilis the essentials or is there something more?
Also please share your holiday gf experiences. I'd love to bring a college girl to a resort on the beach and bareback her for 7 days straight.
