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:
>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:

>way to many tourists, cant even see the sand on the beaches
>not THAT cheap, most stuff is like 5% cheaper than the rest of europe
>dogs shitting everywhere
>shitty socialist culture
>boring bland food

What am I missing? Is this the best europe has to offer?

where should I go to learn Spanish in 6 months for cheap
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Spanish is a fucking awful language. Learning it along with German and French, just to not be a monolingual pleb aka just for the fuck of it and holy hell, starting with this one was a mistake. Unlike the other two it doesn't stick at all and biting through its rules and nuances doesn't bring any satisfaction. Ugly words and ugly syntax, this language must be the reason why the whole LatAm is hopeless and miserable.
Does duolingo really work? I've been using it for a week and I've learned how to say very basic german sentences so it looks like it's working, i was wondering if you can actually get a good level of understanding of the language once the lessons are over.

To a degree it does. Watch a German kids show where the characters talk slow and directly to see if you have conversational understanding. Watching TV in the language you are trying to learn always helps.

How else do you think euros are speaking near perfect English by the time they are 10? Its not all classroom work.
spanish is piss easy

Holy cope mutt. Your country is a shithole, if not for your economy, nobody would want to live there.
America economy is only supported by the ability to print money out of the thin air. Once the world economy stop using the US dollar as the global currency, USA economy will just collapse.
Yeah that used to be true back in the 80s ?
The only reason why people still come is because of their countries being shitty in the first place. Nobody wants to be in a flyover state, and the bigger cities have become so fucking boring and expensive going to America is just not a good idea anymore.
>want to go to morocco and get your head chopped off in the mountains

Dude, that shit happened 4 years ago, and shit like this is an extremely rare occurence of some shit happening in the woods far from any civilization.

How many mass shootings does america get done in 4 years ? The worst thing that can happen to you in morocco is getting scammed by a dozen dollars.
there is like a hundred shootings in america for every terrorist attack

I’m going to Bucharest this July for five days.
Any advice?

does it ever feel like you're seeing, experiencing, learning all these new things just to eventually forget them? or even if remembered - with no one to share them with - that they'll just become stocked up stories of long ago you could just as easily have made up?
i kind of understand the people who feel a need to keep a blog or an annoying social media page, even if just for themselves. people don't want to hear you ramble on about the nights-out you've had 3 years ago or the pieces of information you still remember from that guided tour you did - and eventually it all becomes almost indistinguishable from knowledge and experience you could have gathered for yourself without leaving your bedroom. I don't know if it's just loneliness kicking in, but i do sometimes end up asking myself what is the point of all this travel if i'm not truly sharing it with anyone or even chronicling it creatively for myself..

do you get a similar feeling to this? and if you do, how do you deal with it? do you keep a travelogue / make art to get over that feeling of meaninglessness? do you blog / have an online following to justify it by sharing with others? or have you succesfully made peace with the fact that amazing experiences / lessons are meant to be ephemeral?

That is really fucking cool dude. Gotta say. I wonder if I'm in it

I can't make out the language of the comic with my crappy screen resolution... French or Portuguese? I'm guessing the former.
It's French, you can see the girl bird saying oui. I wonder if OP creampied or not
You sound depressed bro. Life is meant to be experienced, not by reading about others traveling or doing something. You won't be able to do everything. g but make sure you make the most out if what you actually do.
It in indeed french. I do not include myself in it and some characters are inspired by those I have met. Most of the setting are based on random pictures I took so I would say it’s mostly acurate.

I really enjoy doing it, it makes me remember a lot of nice things. Not only I remember things I have seen, but also the music, the sounds, the smell, the tastes, everything.

This looks like a nightmare.

Taking bets on over/under on how many people in this photo are Australian: 3.5

Are there any interesting/fun cities to go to along this corridor? I'm planning to go from Pittsburgh to New Orleans by bus. The places I definitely want to hit so far are:
New Orleans

I'm continuing to Texas after that so I don't want to go too far out of the way. It seems like that whole Ohio/Kentucky/West Virginia/Alabama/Mississippi are might be kind of lame to visit but if you guys know anywhere cool, I'd love to hear it. Especially somewhere with good nightlife, especially techno if possible

Yeah I realize that but I'm basically just doing it because I don't feel like flying so whatever. At least they'll have good food

Thanks, I'll try that
I love Louisville. Good bars and nightlife
Nice, I'll unironically probably go there based on those two sentences haha. Thanks. Needed somewhere somewhat between Pitt and new orleans
Look to do some bourbon tours and tastings
Thanks, definitely going to do that

trying to plan honeymoon, so would like feedback/advice from those living there or have well-travelled. we're personally foreigners. alternatively, would love to see what your ideal road trip looks like.
what were thinking so far:
>depart from australia
>arrive in oslo in late march
>witness northern lights ideally
>do a norwegian early spring road trip?
>drop car off, fly oslo to paris
>after paris, pick up convertible car
>tour central and south france (especially provence region), stay at random inns, spend good deal of time relaxing in quiet scenic towns we find along the way
>ride through and tour switzerland
>tour munich and bavaria
>ride through austria to italy
>explore italian countryside and cities like venice, rome
>drop off car
>visit either amalfi coast or fly over to greek islands for relaxation time and luxury hotels (we are greek heritage)

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>witness northern lights ideally
Need to go further north for that and you may not be lucky enough to see them during your stay.
>after paris, pick up convertible car
>early spring
You might want to pick a regular car, spring weather is notoriously unreliable and convertibles are only fun in warm and dry weather.
Otherwise a good plan although you might want to loosen the schedule a bit and skip one of the countries because otherwise you end up feeling rushed on your honeymoon.
Just saw that the road trip starts later on, but I'd still recommend a regular car for the first half, how about changing cars to a convertible in Italy in late spring/early summer?
Also bear in mind that convertibles have lower luggage capacity.
>late march
But why? That is about the worst possible time. Winter is ending and the typical winter stuff isn't really available anymore. But it's still cold and spring hasn't really set in yet so no spring activities either.

Hi. I'm visiting NYC right now for a few weeks and I'm wondering if what you hear online or see in movies about Asian Massage Parlors is true? I see a bunch of those places in Chinatown and I'm getting ideas walking by but is there any way to know which ones offer happy endings other than going into multiple ones at random in hopes you find the right one? Is this something that only comes up during the massage or can you ask at the reception before paying? I've never done anything like this so I literally have no idea how this works, how much it costs and if it's even still a real thing. Any tips? Is it worth it (like are the girls even attractive)? Thanks anons.

Hi OP, here’s your answer:

If you want to do this, go to Flushing ( last stop on the 7 train) and you’ll be right at the corner of Roosevelt and Main St. there are multiple spots with whores standing outside clearly dressed as prostitutes who are standing there all day. They are disgusting.

I’ve never used their services, but as a local who uses the train i pass there frequently and they stopped being even slightly discreet in offering “massage” and changed to just saying “sex”

Why the police don’t break it up i don’t know. I can only guess corruption because this shit is very obvious and very prevalent.
btw Flushing is the real Chinatown/Koreantown rather than tan area in Manhattan. The green areas in pic related show primarily Asian communities. Blue-Mexican, Pink-white, Red-Black
>central park is color coded for black community
many keks were had
>Why the police don’t break it up
because police have actual crime to stop or investigate. Not tracking down if some anon coomed or not for $$$

Jokes aside, prozzie is actually the worst out of the three.

his beergirl era stuff was fucking based
grabs some lunch and putts around on his scooter while talking about chinese culture, then they had to go all 'chayna numbah ooone" and started making his life harder. no wonder he started calling him out on their bullshit.

At least he snagged an awesome woman and got the fuck out. he won bro's
who's beer girl? any pics?
His doctor wife is very pretty. Makes solid documentaries. I posted him here last time and it sparked a little controversy someone mentioned he keeps making videos on china since it makes money and that's his niche and I agree now. Each and every video I him with a dire look and a title about how china is doing something wrong, I think it is appalling China is a magnificent and beautiful country and the president xi Jingping is an excellent leader, everyone in china is prospering. America is just jealous, this is my opinion as a man in West Country,

Why shouldn't I move to Andorra?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because neighboring communities in France and Spain have larger and better versions of nearly everything you can get in Andorra? Because you’re two hours away from the closest major international airport? Because it’s boring and you don’t speak Catalan?

I don’t know. I have visited Andorra a couple of times and find it pleasant, but it’s not the sort of place I would personally consider living. I’m also not eligible for most tax dodges, but that may be less relevant for your situation.
Because it will turn you into a Manwhorra.
Do it if you never leave home where you are from anyway. There is barely anything to do, it's a really small place, and most people know eachother. You will have to deal with faggot locals and everyone that moved in with money that might or might not be a faggot too. Taxes are low and >>2241795 is a niggerlover. But consider that there is a price to pay to go live there, which if you are making enough money that the switch makes sense to you, you might have, otherwise not worth it.

Me in Japan. But only because the person I went with refused to try any food
Kek based
Exceptionally based. I used to do this when I was at school camps.
some of the replies to this are so disappointing. do men really cheat so easily and are so easily tempted? its scary to imagine unknowingly marrying someone like this, i dont think i could handle it
Happily married and have never thought about it. A lot of people here are larping virgins, but it seems prevalent because people don't brag about not cheating. It's like bragging about feeding your own child.
