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've been gradually preparing for a trip to the Democratic Congo I want to do (well me and my friend). Looking into it over the past month it looks like a fucking nightmare to even get past customs. You need:

•A personal letter of invitation from a private host, stamped by the City Hall in Kinshasa
•A letter explaining the purpose of the trip, the locations you're visiting, how long you're staying, and hotel reservations
•Proof of funds for the trip
•Professional photos of yourself
•A letter signed by the local authorities in your country
•A stamped "travel permit" to travel thru the country
•And probably a boatload of bribing fees you'll have to pay just to get out the front door of the airport

I ain doing all that shit. What "hotels" am I going to reserve if I even want to travel into the country lol?

So I'm thinking a better idea would be to cross the border from another country. Republic of the Congo is much easier to travel to I hear. And Lake Tanganyika is right across from Tanzania.

Does anybody have any experience or knowledge about walking over the border and what happens?

Yeah op please go to Congo nothing can possibly go wrong. They all want that cool africa cred that the kids are so hyped for nowadays for themselves. They definitely are not trying speak some sense into you coming from years of experience. Don't listen to the arguments and points brought forth. They are just blowhards. Again. Nothing can possibly go wrong.

What's your top 3 best/worst travel vloggers?
Best:
3: Drew Binsky, yeah I know he shills shitholes like pakistan and bangladesh but I like that he's exploring countries like Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea etc...
2. Indigo Traveller, like Drew but he feels more real.
1. Bald and bankrupt, he's NT as fuck, entertaining and he shows us the shitholes of USSR that no one ever goes to.

Worst:
3. Mark Wiens, I just can't stand his ugly fucking face everytime he eats something.
2. Sam Chui, shills shit airlines such as Biman Bangladesh, not sure if you can call him a travel vlogger
1. Lost Leblanc, I just can't stand this ugly cuck and his ugly dwarf girlfriend. He clickbaits, travels to boring destinations such as bali and he's so fucking boring with no personality.

I know a guy who works as a personal trainer on a cruise ship, seems to love it and keeps posting photos of all the places he's been. Does a lot of exploring + partying. You probably have to be very sociable to make it as a PT on a ship though.

Only the smallest cities in the middle of nowhere where train service is very limited. Otherwise travel by train.

Italians are accommodating. Learn how to say hello/good morning and you'll be fine.

>>1579221
Yeah definitely use a warm sleeping bag. Even during summer it can get pretty chilly at night. I would also highly recommend renting a 4wd vehicle if you don't already have one, as many of the best and least crowded trail heads are only accessible that way. And make sure you check out some of the small towns in the area; a couple of them are actually really interesting and there are some great places to set up camp on the outskirts.
