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.

Hiking in Krete. Truly a religious experience. Hiking the highest mountain there was amazing. It's not even that tall but the experience itself was amazing. Sleeping with the window open at night in the summer, hearing the night in Krete countryside is something to behold. I want to move there someday.

Hi /trv/. I have two long lost cousins. I've known them for a year. I'd like to make up for the lost time by going on a big trip with them. My aunt is okay with the idea. They are six and eight years old.
What are some good places to go with children? Do I need special documentation to travel internationally?
>>
>>1694506
Oh dear God you're crazy. The fact that you want to do something with your cousins is great but their ages and how you don't know each other that well makes international travel a BAD idea. And you probably will need documentation from the parents to take them out of the country.
>>
Honest question, why the fuck is your aunt letting a strange man take her kids traveling? Something's fucked up about this situation. You need to watch this doc and then show it to your retarded aunt.

>best 2 cities in France (besides paris) and 1 city in Switzerland to visit over the course of 10-12 days.

This will be my last trip with my wife for a while as we are planning on having a kid soon so that will impede travel for a few years, we have been to Europe many times however, never France or Switzerland (and very little in Germany). While neither of us really care for Paris, we both agree that you pretty much need to spend at least 1 day there to see the major sights, since we are flying into Paris this wont be a big deal.My wife and I generally like old towns, not much for partying or anything. So far I am thinking

>Paris
>Srasbourg
>Berne
>Lyon

As the cities to visit, however none of this is set in stone, where would /trv/ suggest visiting in these two places?
>>
Forgot to mention my goal of this trip is to transition fully into a female (was born into a mans body). Which French city has the best doctor for SRS? Thanks in advanced.

OP here, I forgot the mention this festival is also sponsored by the TLGB community, which I am a proud member of, not sure if that matters, but it does to me. The waffles are specifically made with HIV+ cooks to break the stereotype that people with HIV are TLGB.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
>also known as /sqt/ (Stupid Questions Thread)

For any and all of your one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If your question is specific to a popular destination (eg. Thailand, Japan, Germany, Italy, etc.), consider asking it in a relevant thread/general, if such a thread is currently active. And even then, do whatever you want, I'm not your mom.

If your question is administrative in nature (eg. visas, passports, customs/immigration, airport/airline policies, etc.), be as specific as possible. Such information may include, but is not limited to your nationality, where you're going, any layover points, etc. These details do get missed quite often, and they sometimes can make a difference.

>Got a week off work. Next work day is Nov. 1st.
I'm from Norway, the Oslo area.
I really wanna do something with my week off, so I figured a drive down in Europe would be fun.
Is south France or northern Italy nice at this time of year?
Is it even a good idea to drive there from Norway?
Will I have enough time to enjoy some nice weather?

So what is life actually like in southern europe in the current economic situation?
>>
Poverty. Unemployment for people under 35 is like 50%. Most educated people have left for Northern Europe. Most women have already left so the population is heavily skewed towards men causing a shortage of women and heavy competition.

Lots of depression due to these factors

I'm going to Taipei next month for 4 days. I've never been to Taiwan (or China) before, and have no agenda other than to eat food and wonder around.

What's your favorite travel gear?

Serious traveler here

I honestly don't carry much specialized gear because over-packing will kill you slowly.

Some things after 5 years I still swear by are
A. hiking packs that you can remove the waist strap of
B. odor absorbing laundry bags
C. needle and thread
D. power bank (so you worry less about having your phone stolen), and on this note buying cloudspace for your traveling photos
E. good socks, almost impossible to get after leaving the developed world
F. the clique cash safety bag. not to say you should wear it 24/7 but there are times you will be glad to have one as an option.

bullshit gift-ware tier gadgets:
microfiber towels, if you stay in hotels you usually get a real one, then never dry fast enough and can be replaced by....a t-shirt. yes that's right, your cotton t-shirt is also compact, lightweight and fast drying!

What state has the hottest women to fuck for the least amount of effort?

Coming from California to Pennsylvania, it was like a walk in the park there. Lots of women without the bitchy attitudes spread their legs for me, got my notch count waaaay up. They were all feminist enough to be strapped with BC pills and IUDs galore. Made me quite happy.

Ive been curious of plowing through some southern women but I heard they don't really do birth control like coastal feminists do.

I live an hour and a half from DTW and four hours from ORD. It's pretty easy to find fares to Latin America for anywhere between $175 and $350, round-trip. Flights inside the United States are usually reasonably priced; I flew from DTW to Boston, one way, for $30 last summer.

I use 'em to search, then I buy from the airline direct. I only used them once flying to NZ, or Brisbane, I forget which. NZ, it was yeah. I don't know why I reserved through them but it was just one flight, and it worked out well enough. Most of the time I just use them to sound out a potential flight path
>>
their app got pulled from google play for a reason
>>
>>1691116
Stop using these websites. Find tickets via google flights and book through the airlines.
>>
I have used Kiwi several times without issue, they were shitty flights but I got what I paid for.

There have been issues with impossible self-transfers and poor /no customer service, but I haven't heard anyone being fucked up who didn't contribute to it in some way.

pro tip; nobody online will tell you how they contributed to the fuck up.
>>1691403
actually booking directly is often more expensive.

many booking sites get "last minute" tickets from airlines which the airline doesn't think it can sell, or buys them second-hand from an agent in the same position.

airlines don't want to de-value the tickets they sell on their main site, and would rather provide discounts through third parties (who don't advertise to everyone)

check a skyscanner flight against the airlines flight and you will see for yourself
