Hey voyagers,
/trv/ is a slow board, so don't expect immediate responses. CHECK THE CATALOG – you might find threads already discussing topics you're interested in.

Before asking for suggestions, tell /trv/ about your:
>Budget
>Interests
>Level of understanding of the local language(s)
This makes it easier to give quality advice. Of course, keep your posts travel related.

For all other matters:

Copypasta FAQ:
>When will Japan open to tourists again?
We don't fucking know. Tokyo Olympics are now! No tourists! No spectators!
>Ok, but seriously, when will Japan be open to tourists? Give me an estimate.
WE DON'T KNOW. Prime minister Suga doesn't know. The CDC doesn't know. It's the blind leading the blind.
>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 transportation?
Install the "Official Japan Travel App"

I live in AZ and NY, in my opinion the only places on the west coast worth visiting are the ones literally on the coast. The rest of it (Alaska, the Sonoran Desert, Rockies, PNW rainforests) is only worth it if you're gonna take a roadtrip, camp, or go around with people there, and only if you're mesmerized by that landscape (after living in the desert I'm tired of it) as opposed to going to the towns in the area, which to me are urban sprawls with nothing much to do. On the other hand, the cities on the coast are all unique and are worth the visit. Do your own deciding about where sounds the most interesting and you'll probably have a good time.

Western half of the US? I'd have to recommend Hawaii, if you can afford to do it right.

After multiple years of working soulless office jobs and losing any sense of fulfillment, I’ve strongly considered doing seasonal gigs for different locations around the US.

Do any anons have any experience or are currently doing this? I’ve done summer camp gigs in the past but am considering doing other temp jobs like state/nat’l park gigs, ski resorts, hotels/hostels, and ranches. Bonus for free room and board.

I’m aware that the jobs aren’t paying top tier, but I’m stingy with my money anyways and have a healthy 60 grand saved with no debt in case shit hits the fan.

I tried to do something like this, but with the oilfield. To make a long story short, it was awful and I would never do it again, especially coming from the office. Just a word of warning to office workers who might be tempted to jump right into something like this.
>>
>>2070629
It seems to be a common trend I’ve noticed with oilfield work, so that’s something I’ll avoid. I’m contemplating on working between ski resort/Alaskan fishing/forest or national park jobs.

>>2069864
Yeah I had a friend who did this. You find jobs with seasonal contracts on some website I forget but they’re super available. He traveled all over the USA doing this shit and met his girlfriend doing it

>>2070647
I just get the sense that fishing and forestry are more or less the same as the oilfield. That’s why I mentioned it.

berlin for sure has the crown when it comes to sheer druggie degeneracy. it's kind of memeworthy at this point. attracts too many foreigners, posers and genuinely insane ppl.

hamburg always had very strong party culture in a drunken whoring sailor type of way. but more importantly we stil lhave a good club culture without the strict doormen. also less fetish shit and less open fucking which is actually a good thing imo

this all of course fucked due to memerona. there are some decent illegal parties going on in run down industrie areas but yeah I would wait at least a year if you want to experience the night life. if it actually comes back

What travel card do you guys recommend?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>>2070854
You don't get two complementary cards?
There isn't much difference between MC and Visa, they're usually accepted wherever credit cards are accepted, in contrast to Amex or Diners.
>>
>>2070859
>You don't get two complementary cards?
Really no point to use anything but a Charles Schwab card to avoid oversea additional fees + a normal card. Been traveling for the past 8 years with work and pleasure domestic and international. There really isn't a point to having too many cards. There also is basically no point to card juggling for the average anon despite what biz tells you about 'tricking the system'.

Collecting points to get a free or low cost vacation abroad is unlikely, you're almost always better off shopping around for budget airlines or accepting a flight layover to drastically reduce the costs for the most part. Example is an upcoming trip to denver I have coming up, through my card I would have to exchange my points for a ~150 dollar round trip flight via points or... I could simply book a 65 dollar flight via Kayak. The value of points drops drastically after your first introduction rates and point bonuses. The most think I keep points racked up for is upgrades, club access, or loyalty shit.
>>
>>2070860
I like to have a secondary card I can put somewhere separate in case my primary card gets stolen/lost, but to be honest any kind of free credit card can fulfil that role.
>>
>>2070861
Yeah which is why I have a Charls Schwab card + my normal bank CC. I have a Chime prepaid debit card usually stuck in the bottom of my suitcase with about 250 bucks on it, which works overseas fine. Use to do USD but swapped to a prepaid debit card as it was just easier, I don't get points on it but what you're saying is more in terms of emergency funds.
>>
>>2070865
Big fan of CS debit for cash-only places but I just open dozens of cards over time for sign up bonuses. There are a few keeper cards out there, the amex Hilton aspire gets you way more free shit than the $450 fee for example.

Please discuss where cameras worsen or better a travel experience.
For example: is it worth it take yourself out of the moment to take pictures to help you remember the experience later or is it better to simply take it all in on the spot?

I got a little Olympus half frame point and shoot and I'm really looking forward to brining it next time I'm in Europe. Seems perfect for bringing a little more character to the food, interior, street shots I'd take on my phone otherwise.

Took my DSLR on a few Europe backpacking trips and it wasn't really worth it since I was just doing tourist things in the day and hostel shit at night, not dedicating time for anything serious.
